Greg meets with Simon Liu, a Canadian LEGO builder known for his intricate sci-fi builds. He is one of the organisers for two popular LEGO conventions: BrickWorld, Chicago and Bricks in the Six, Toronto. Simon discusses the many benefits of joining a LUG (Lego User Group) and the importance of community for AFOLs. He also shares a few anecdotes on how he injects fun into his builds and the creative ways of engaging and challenging other LEGO builders. Finally, Simon shares when it might be ok to actually smash LEGO!
