From its humble beginnings 15 years ago, Brickvention has been a place for Australian LEGO Fans to click together. But unfortunately due to the events of 2020 and leading into 2021, Australia's largest LEGO fan event couldn't open their door in the physical sense to fans this year. Fortunately, the Brickvention team doesn't shy away from away challenge, so for the first time in history, Brickvention is going online!
