BULAT stands for Brunei Usergroup Lego and Technic. It is a geographical Lego User Group (LUG) for the country of Brunei Darussalam. It was created on 15th May 2011 to bring together AFOLs in Brunei Darussalam.
BULAT means circular or round in the local Brunei Malay language. This acronym is aptly chosen as it also describes the stud on the Lego bricks and the one "bulat" on the top of the minifigure's head!
The vision of the group is to promote Lego collecting, building and other Lego related activities in Brunei.
The goal of the group is to:
- bring together all the collectors in Brunei
- assist each other in the Lego hobby
- support all local Brunei Lego retail
- discourage scalpers
