This year's gathering of some of the world's biggest LEGO fans—they call themselves Adult Fans of LEGO—at Brickworld 2010 will combine their brick engineering talents for two major video game themed collaborations, one adorably Call of Duty-themed.
Brickworld 2010 organizers are planning a total of four sci-fi collaboration displays, but two caught our attention.
One is the Vic Viper Fly-In, a collection of LEGO-based ships based on the iconic spacecraft from Konami's Gradius series. The group collaboration has a somber tie, acting as a memorial to the late Nate "nnenn" Nielson. Nielson, who was the victim of a fatal accident early this year, was a well-known LEGO aficionado and master spaceship builder, crafting dozens of original Vic Viper-style ships.
