The Lego Fantasy Adventure Story Exhibition was one of my last stops in this whirlwind Taiwan trip. The exhibit is currently on display at the Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall (中正紀念堂) till the 4th of April 2017.
This exhibit has been FIVE years in the making and it really shows in the level of detail of the sprawling medieval castles and glorious battle scenes.
The show features builds from some of Taiwan’s most prolific brick artists like 大黑白, Pocky Lu, 戴樂高 just to name a few. I apologise in advance if I don’t have all names here so if you know of anyone I missed out, just drop a message in the comments section and I’ll update the article.
This is a paradise for any castle lover and army builder as you will probably not encounter another collection of LEGO models dedicated to the theme anywhere else in the world.
I’m afraid that my photos will not do this fantastic exhibition proper justice but I do hope that it might just inspire people to check the place out for themselves! Tickets are at NT280 which is only (SGD$12.90 / USD$9.20) which is totally worth the ticket price (and more!).
There are more than 30 builds that make up this exhibition that totals up over a million LEGO bricks. There is one castle build that consists of 200,000 bricks alone.
I will post some highlights but there are a lot more photos in my Flickr gallery so you can head over there to take a look or check out the thumbnails at the bottom of the page.
The interesting thing about this bridge is that it was designed to be atop a mountain range but due to time constraints, only the bridge was ready for the exhibition. Only one can imagine how this would look once it is completed.
Pocky has previewed his Blue Lion Castle before but this is the first time I’m seeing it in person with the gorgeous landscape by 根毛 complements it perfectly. That waterfall is simply breath taking.
My favourite part of this build has to be the golden bridge. It looks so delicate yet majestic at the same time and the colour palette applied is just the right combination without making the whole diorama too obtrusive.
The interesting bit about this is that this castle diorama is made with mostly Nexo Knights sets. The use of the Trans Orange panels for the windmill vanes was a nice touch.
This is the largest diorama in the exhibition measuring 3 meters by 2.5 meters and consists of 200,000 bricks to complete and countless man hours expended. There were so many details and scenes within this build that I wished I had more time to soak it all up.
One really cool addition to the Lego Fantasy Adventure Story Exhibition are the life-sized LEGO displays. They constructed upsized versions of a couple of LEGO huts complete with weapons racks and buckets with apples and chickens.
It does add to the overall experience of the exhibition as it gives you a taste of what it is like to be a LEGO minifigure and roam the LEGO world.
I really cannot recommend that you check out this place enough. Even the casual LEGO fan will be quite entertained as there are building activities for the kids as well.
The exhibition closes on the 4th of April 2017 so anyone who is in Taiwan at the moment, visiting or residing, should plan a trip here if you haven’t done so already.
As a fellow AFOL, I had already spent a solid three hours at the Lego Fantasy Adventure Story Exhibition and I had just barely covered all the builds before I had to rush to the airport for my departing flight. Definitely would have love to spend more time there.
Thanks again for the awesome souvenir and the chance to see first hand, the breath taking builds. Keep up the great work guys. Looking forward to your next show!
