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.

More LEGO Stores Coming Soon

A very exciting press release hit my inbox a few minutes ago.

Alceon, the company behind the Bondi store, have confirmed a second Sydney store and plans for the rest of the country too.

The next store will be in Broadway Sydney in late 2019. The new LEGO Certified Store at Broadway Sydney has secured prime positioning on Level 2 within one of Australia’s highest performing shopping centres. The store will feature exclusive, customised design elements and brick-built symbols.

But don’t worry if you aren’t in Sydney – LEGO Certified Stores will be opening in the coming months in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. South Australia and Western Australia will get theirs in the New Year.

This is a huge development and I can’t wait to see where these stores open!
