Sydney LEGO Store Opens Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the big day of Sydney LEGO fans with the official opening of the LEGO Store at Westfield Bondi Junction.

The doors officially open at 9am but with strong expectation of a line-up they may open things up a little early.

There isn’t any official word on this but I am assuming (based on past experience) that the first customer will get some sort of surprise.

Will you be heading along to the store? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments or post your shots on the Bricking Around Facebook page.

BONUS OFFER

40145

If you spend over $199 in store tomorrow you’ll receive a free LEGO Store set. This is quite a rare set as it’s only given out at store openings. Stock may be limited so you’ll want to get their earlier rather than later.

Sydney LEGO Store To Open March 21st

We now have the official confirmation that the Sydney LEGO store will be opening its doors on March 21st (no exact time was given).

The store will feature Build-Your-Own Minifigure™ stations, a signature Pick a Brick Wall. The store also features exciting new experiences such as a dedicated area designed specifically for children’s parties – The Brick Cave – and custom brick engraving service for personalisation.

The store will showcase a variety of unique features, including those which draw inspiration from Sydney landmarks, including a wall mounted LEGO® Opera House and Harbour Bridge mosaic.

As a LEGO store it will also be home to all the latest exclusives such as the Ford Mustang. I’m waiting to hear back about any potential opening giveaways.

The store is located in Westfield Bondi Junction (Level 3, Oxford Street entrance).

Who’s going along to check it out?

LEGO Retail Design Team Looking For AFOL Insights

Dreamworld LEGO Store Thumb

The LEGO Retail Design Team have put out a survey looking for feedback from the Adult LEGO fan community.

They want to hear your thoughts about the shopping experience that is currently offered and how they can make it even better.

This relates to both LEGO Brand stores as well as LEGO Certified stores so it should be relevant to us here in Australia too.

You can find the survey here.

New LEGO Certified Store Coming To Sydney

Brisbane has the Dreamworld store just a short drive down the M1. Melbourne has LEGOLAND Discovery Centre and it’s store. Now it’s Sydney’s turn to get an exciting LEGO retail outlet.

In late March Westfield Bondi Junction will be the home of Sydney’s first LEGO Certified store (just ignore the Birkenhead Point store from the 80s).

Here are the important points…

It’s a LEGO Certified Store

This is to be expected as the Dreamworld store is also a certified store. The biggest issue with this is that VIP points won’t be available. It’s possible that the store will roll out their own program but it won’t be linked to the online store’s VIP program.

The full product range should be available though, including exclusives.

There will be a PAB wall

The press release specifically mentions that there will be a Pick-a-Brick wall as part of the store. I think there would be riots if they’d decided to leave this out. I’m not sure if this will be priced by weight or by cups. I’m assuming per cup pricing.

The store will also feature build your own minifigure stations and brick engraving.

It’s going to be big

The store is an impressive 302 sqm area over two floors. Taking up part of the store is a dedicated area designed specifically for children’s parties. I am not sure if they’ll offer AFOL parties too.

I can’t wait to find out more about this store, and hopefully we will soon with the opening so close. Check out the official press release below.
