Building LEGO Store Models

by

First off, I apologize for my long absence from posting on this blog. I was a tad too busy this weekend to get around to posting anything.

This weekend and several of my fellow LEGO club members got together and built all day and all night long! What were we building you might ask? The post title might give you a clue. ;)

Well, did you know that when a new LEGO store opens in your area they ask the local LEGO club to build the display models? Those are the models that line the shelves — the Miniland scenes, ducks, fish, etc. Although I don’t know how many there are in total, Costa Mesa, California’s newest LEGO Store will be getting quite a few!

As you can see from the picture, this is what the LEGO models look like when they are in the boxes. :D

The models vary in complexity from Miniland scale Circus performers

P1250208 Karen built a fast food tray while Skylar made a pair of bunnies.

There were about eight of us that worked from 10 am till about 10:30 pm at night. We all worked on several models, some more complex than others. Unfortunately I didn’t take pictures of all the models when they were finished (it had been a rather long day), but as they will be on display at the new Costa Mesa Store I’ll take pictures of them eventually. If you are in the area, the Grand Opening will be next month:

LEGO Store Grand Opening Event:
South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa, CA
March 11 – 13
Come visit our new LEGO store in the South Coast Plaza. This grand opening event will feature a Master Model Build of Yoda!

I plan on being there so maybe I’ll see you. :)
