I'm going to have to be shorter because I am now pretty far behind on my notes.
So here goes: After Jens, I spoke to Nate Kuipers and a little about Technic -= he has been doing Technic models at the company and did the initial designs for the snowmobile and many alternate models:-).
After that I spent 3 hours at the idea house - including visiting the Vault. I was given a tour by Jette Orduna, and went with Melody, the Eurobureau head...wow. I got the full tour, and it's a LOT of information.
I had planned on video taping it, but the initial guide tour took too long - so I got many many pictures.
And then it was off to dinner to talk about LEGO Factory....good times...
