Drum roll please…..the 4th annual Brick Fanatic awards (“The Emmets”) start tomorrow! In what has now become a Brick Fanatics festive tradition, join us every day as we count down the days till Christmas with a daily award. Last year’s and 2013’s awards can still be found on our old archive site by clicking here. Sadly when the site was updated in early 2013 all old posts were lost. So, unlike every other LEGO fan site out there that will bore you with the advent calendar countdown (again!), we aim to spice things up and generate some interesting discussions regarding our award winners.
We will also be running our Great LEGO Christmas Giveaway starting tomorrow!!
The awards will work as follows: our staff will pick their nominee from each of the categories listed below and from that list an overall winner will be picked; hopefully the one with the most nominations. These awards are meant to be lighthearted and we hope it will spark some debate over what we think is the best, etc.
Here is the list of award categories where each day we will post the nominees and winner from one category right up to and including Christmas.
