MADISON, Tenn. (WTVF) — Dozens, if not hundreds, of LEGO displays will be set up at BrickUniverse when it returns to the Wilson County Expo Center this weekend.

The LEGO convention drew approximately 4,500 people in March. It was the first time the convention visited the mid-state.

"I like the realism of it," explained Willie Neblett Jr., who will be selling at BrickUniverse for the first-time on January 4 and January 5.

In the fall, Neblett launched his small business Titan Bricks, Toys and Collectibles.

"The interest is there and we just got to put our name in so people know we're an option too," Neblett said.

Neblett explained many LEGO builders are looking for individual pieces opposed to full sets. That's why his new business is selling intricate and in some cases, rare LEGO collections.

"They always tell you to do what you love...work what you love and it's not like work," Neblett said with a smile.

Tickets to BrickUniverse cost $15 if purchased ahead of time online, otherwise tickets are $18 at the door.
