Trending: Amazon and Seattle’s NBA dreams: Steve Ballmer on the city’s prospects for bringing back the Sonics

Editor’s Note: There are all types of geeks in the world: Software geeks. Film geeks. Game geeks.

Based on the crowds at Seattle’s BrickCon event on Saturday, there are quite a few Lego geeks out there too.

It takes a very special type of person (we’d say patient) to piece together multicolored Lego blocks into life-like creations.

GeekWire photographer Annie Laurie Malarkey stopped by BrickCon– which continues Sunday at Seattle Center’s Exhibition Hall — to take in some of the action.

There were all sorts of creative engineering accomplishments and marvels, from robots to city skylines to river paddleboats.

Heck, there was even a recreation of the Tower of Orthanc from The Lord of the Rings and a 29-part adaptation of “Monty Python and the Holy Lego.”
