Vintage Car GWP coming to LEGO Certified Stores

I know a lot of people missed out on the vintage car GWP from LEGO online so you might be interested to know that from tomorrow you’ll be able to get it from the AG LEGO Certified Stores (i.e. not Dreamworld or LLDC).

There’s a $199 minimum spend, but with so many new releases that should be easy to hit.

LEGO Certified Store coming to South Australia

Despite the fact that some South Australians insist on pronouncing LEGO weirdly (Lay-go? What?) Alceon have decided that Westfield Marion will be the location of the next LEGO Certified store.

Opening some time “in the coming weeks” the store will be the first in South Australia.

While this is great news for our South Australian readers hopefully it’s a sign that more stores may start opening in other areas like Perth and Canberra.

Check out the official press release below, and if any South Australian readers spot hoardings up at Westfield Marion send me through a pic!

Charlestown Square LEGO Store Opens Tomorrow

Great news for LEGO fans in the Newcastle area – the Charlestown Square LEGO Store officially opens its doors tomorrow morning at 9am.

Of course the world is a lot different now so the store will be taking all of the required precautions with the opening. Don’t except a huge crowd rushing in to the store at 9am. When you arrive at the store there will be a QR code for you to scan so that you can join a virtual queue. You will then be notified by text when it is time to make your way back to the store. Shoppers are also asked to please remember to practice social distancing by keeping 1.5m from others and use the hand sanitiser provided. Masks must also be worn when in store.

If you get to the store tomorrow I’d love to hear your thoughts.

First Look At The Chermside LEGO Store

The rollout of LEGO certified stores continues with the official opening of the Chermside LEGO Certified Store tomorrow. Located on the North side of Brisbane this store is the third for Queensland, following the Dreamworld store and the Robina one.

I was lucky enough to be invited along to a preview event tonight and anybody attending the store’s official opening tomorrow is in for a treat.

The Pick-a-brick wall features (by my count) 128 spots, with the ones out of reach duplicated. It was a really impressive selection of parts and there were plenty of parts that I could have filled a cup with by themselves. Cups are the same price as other certified stores – $14.99 for a small and $29.99 for a large.

The store also features a build-a-minifigure station, which at the moment is stocked with some great exclusive parts for making some Halloween minifigures. It will cost you $19.99 for three minifigures.

There are also two fantastic additions that you need to check out in person – first is the amazing Story Bridge mosaic. The second is a brick-built sculpture of a huge crocodile and minifigure. Both of these are creations from Ryan McNaught and his team.

If you are attending the opening you’ll be pleased to know that all the exclusives are in stock and ready to go. There seemed to be plenty of Ideas Friends sets, but they may not last long.

Anybody who spends $199 or more will receive the free LEGO Store Opening promotional set. The first 100 customers will also get a free gift.

This store is operated by the same company as the Robina, Broadway, Bondi and Doncaster stores. All share a common VIP program allowing you to earn points for your purchases. Signing up can be done at point of sale.

First Look At The Robina LEGO Certified Store

robina-lcs-thumb

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.
