    US $159.99 – CA $189.99 – DE 149.99 € – UK 132.99 £ – DK  1299.00 DKK

    It’s very busy in the Parisian Restaurant. As a scooter zips by, inside the waiter rushes between the tables as the nervous young man gets ready to propose with the ring! It’s just as hectic behind the scenes, with the chef busily preparing the food. This beautifully detailed building is the setting for so many stories and is a great addition to the modular building series. The Parisian Restaurant has a fully-stocked, blue and white tiled kitchen with tableware as well as a cozy apartment with pull-down bed, kitchenette and fireplace. On the top floor is the artist’s room with a studio that includes a cast iron heater, easel, paintbrush and two works of art by the aspiring artist. Outside, stairs lead down to the roof terrace lined with hanging lanterns and flowers where the diners eat alfresco-style. This amazing Parisian Restaurant model even includes a facade with croissants, clams and feather details that recapture the feel of Paris. Includes 5 minifigures: chef, waiter, girl and a romantic couple.

    21021 Architecture Marina Bay Sands

    An image of a brand-new LEGO Architecture model has recently surfaced in various places online. It originally originated from the LEGO Survey Product site, where LEGO accidently revealed 21021 Marina Bay Sands. This is a famous casino landmark that was built in 2010 in Singapore. The infinity pool at the top is definitely something to check out.

    From September 29 to October 5, Kmart stores in America will be offering an additional 50% off ALL clearance toys including LEGO. Many items however have not been marked down much so its about 50% off retail. Our members have been finding lots of LEGO items on sale so do check them out! Thanks to forum member trk for the heads up.

    Forum member SlickP also reports to us from Florida that he found some of the newer sets at clearance prices as well (not marked, but scans at sale prices). For example, he reported finding 75019 AT-TE for $40.5 (reg.$89.99), 75016 Spider Droid for $11 or $14 (reg.$19.99), 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendars for $18 (reg.$39.99) and LEGO City Advent Calendar for $13 (reg.$29.99). Of course, these clearances could be YMMV.
