The wait will soon be over for those truly dedicated English Bay Barge fans who have been waiting for their custom, locally built barge Lego set.
The kit was made through a collaboration with Vancouver Is Awesome and Alex Saar of Heritage Bricks. Announced back in January, the Barge Chillin' Building Kits went through a 14-day pre-selling period and are now in the process of being shipped. We here at VIA got our hands on one of the kits early and got our reporter Cameron Thomson to assemble one of the 250 kits.

The kit has 85 Genuine Lego parts, as well as a full-colour instruction booklet and takes about 15 minutes to put together. If you missed out there are still a few available through bcisawesome.com.
