First Look At The Robina LEGO Certified Store

The spread of Australian LEGO Stores continues with the official opening of the Robina LCS taking place tomorrow (September 28th) at 9am. Today I was lucky enough to attend an official pre-opening event where I got to check out the store.

Overall I was really impressed with the store. It’s well laid out and has the look and feel you’d expect if you have ever been in a LEGO store before.

There is a fantastic LEGO mosaic of the Gold Coast beach and skyline (created by Ryan McNaught) as well as a huge sculpture of a minifigure building a sandcastle.

For kids and the young at heart there is LEGO Play tables, a build-a-minifigure station as well as the Pick-a-brick wall. Check out the video below for a look at what was on the wall when I was there.

Chatting to the staff they seem to be pretty aware of what parts are popular with AFOLs (like foliage) and hope to be able to have a good offering all the time.

All of the exclusives you’d hope to see in a LCS were there in plentiful numbers. There were lots of Friends sets, heaps of Lunar Landers, the Disney Train and even the older exclusives like Ninjago City.

Be sure to check out the full gallery of photos from the day below.

    Are openings always on Saturdays? I’ll have to take a day off work for the Doncaster one.

    Wow so many great foliage pieces in the PAB wall! I hope the Bondi Store gets more foliage!

    • Wt says:

      Was thinking the same thing about the foliage. Hopefully we get a lot of foliage at Doncaster store opening. I will buy at least 4 cups.

    Anyone know the prices for the PAB wall?

  4. Kei says:

    Can you make complete minifigs from the PAB wall? Because that seems like a really cheap way to get minifigs. My mental value of minifigs is usually $2+

    • CS says:

      As far as I am aware there are no minifigure elements in the PAB. There is a separate create a minifigure stand where you get 3 for $20 so super expensive IMO. The PAB is usually great for foliage and flat tiles to build out a world.

    • Michael says:

      No. The minifigure parts are in a Build-a-minifigure station. You can build 3 minifigures for (I believe) $25.
