Welcome to the World of Tomorrow!

Newer Older

This layout is the culmination of a work in progress for over two years. I started with the Planet Express and major characters back in February 2008. In December 2009 I expanded the building to include the sub pen, and built up a portion of the surrounding area. In late April through June 2010, I worked overtime to build an 80"x60" layout, ready in time for Brickworld 2010 on June 17th. This layout is a part of the much larger Northern Illinois Lego Train Club, and may be seen at our various shows in the Chicago area.

To check out all of the creations, building and characters within this layout, view the World of Tomorrow photo collection.

UPDATE, 11/1/10: I finally have a video of the entire layout. Check it out here.

    Have to echo NewRight here, the pictures really don't do it justice, seeing something as impressive as this in person is so much better. Really happy I got to see this at Brickworld. :-D

    Matt De Lanoy Matt: Prepare for a slew more of hits... This was posted an hour ago on the Comedy Central Insider and reposted at Futurama's Facebook page (2.1 million fans) Only one person so far has made the comment that "That guy has way to much free time" ;)

    Thanks, Will! I'd just noticed a whole bunch of hits in the past hour and was wondering where they were coming from. That blog posting has been up since early afternoon, but it looks like it took the facebook page to really spread the word. ;)
