Fashion Valley LEGO Store Opening


The Fashion Valley LEGO Store Grand Opening is this weekend in San Diego. For all of you who are locals like me I’d encourage you to come on down and participate. For those of you who don’t live in the area, I’ll be covering both the Fashion Valley and Mission Viejo store openings after this weekend is over as they have the same building event — SpongeBob Squarepants.

Join in the weekend-long grand opening celebrations and LEGO Master Builder Event! Help a LEGO Master Builder construct an 8-foot tall LEGO model and get a free certificate of achievement for participating! Plus, when you make a qualifying purchase at the new LEGO Store, you could receive an exclusive LEGO minifigure set and a collectible, limited-edition LEGO t-shirt!

That’s right, not only am I going to this Grand Opening, I was at the one in Mission Viejo last weekend. Helping out at these events is fun, but can make you very tired! But its all in good fun and I love being a part of it. 🙂

To give you an idea of scale, this is the little and big versions of Spongebob’s foot
I built both feet in about a day.

If you want to see pictures of the Mission Viejo opening before I talk about it here, you can see them on my Flickr set.

    Hey Mariann,

      I don’t know what it looks like yet as I haven’t seen it yet. Hopefully I’ll be able to get one, but I don’t know. If I do I will take a picture. I did get the m from the Mission Viejo Store Opening and I will put pictures of them online when I get a chance.

    Hey, I’m Austin Scott, the kid who built the giant Mario Series statues. Just wanted to know when you were posting them.

    Peace I’m Out.

    I was happy to meet you yesterday. I’m so happy STILL about the Mario Busts.

    You live in San Diego? Me too! I was so happy when they opened the Lego Store at the Fashion Valley mall. I didn’t have to drive to Downtown Disney to go shopping at the Lego Store anymore. I haven’t been to the one in Mission Viejo yet, I hope to check it out sometime.
