In news that’ll have enthusiasts and casuals alike bricked up (present company included), Sydney is just days away from officially welcoming the world’s largest LEGO store.
But this forthcoming 900-square-metre paradise for assemble-it-yourself fun — which effectively dethrones London’s Leicester Square flagship; as well as bringing the Harbour City on par with the international likes of New York, Hong Kong, and Copenhagen — won’t just be a place where you can cop a kit.
As it so happens, it’ll feature Australia’s very first Minifigure Factory, where you can create LEGO versions of yourself (or whoever you so choose, really).
You can also expect the following:
- the obligatory Pick & Build Wall
- hands-on play areas
- Australia-centric features such as massive sculptures referencing our culture
- plus in-store builds and monthly events
“Every new store contributes to the LEGO Group’s global mission of inspiring and developing the builders of tomorrow,” noted LEGO ANZ Vice President & General Manager Troy Taylor.
“With immersive features, creative play experiences and playful nods to culture, Sydney’s new store will give LEGO fans of all ages the chance to discover a wide range of LEGO products and exciting digital and physical experiences.”
He added: “We hope the unveiling of the world’s largest LEGO Store in Australia will delight both local and international brick fans, whilst creating lasting memories and standing as a tribute to the creative possibilities of the globally-famous LEGO brick.”
The world’s largest LEGO store — and soon-to-be the country’s flagship location for bricked fun — opens its doors in Sydney Arcade (overlooking Pitt Street Mall) on Saturday November 11th at precisely 9:30 AM.
Perhaps it’ll be worth making the pilgrimage just for that epic 2,083-piece Concorde set.
