    Four new LEGO Brand Stores will be opening soon later this year! There’s been rumors circulating earlier on with job postings being posted for LEGO Brand assistant managers/store managers. However, these four stores have now all been confirmed on the official LEGO Store site. Grand opening celebrations as well as promotional details should be available in the next few weeks so stay tune!

    Two of the stores will be opening in a new province/state where there was never a LEGO store before. This is a very exciting time for LEGO fans living there. The first store would be in Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada while the second store will be in Providence, Rhode Island. This will be the 10th LEGO Store in Canada (2 in BC, 2 in AB, 3 in ON and 2 in QC). If you are living in either of these provinces/states, you’ll get a LEGO Brand Store in your area very soon! You can definitely look forward to the Pick a Brick Wall, the free monthly mini model builds and more. I know there’s quite a few forum members here from Rhode Island and Winnipeg so this is definitely exciting news!

    LEGO Brand Retail stores have rolled out a new change to their popular monthly mini model builds each month. Every month, its a tradition that LEGO Stores offer a free LEGO build and all you have to do is just show up. But starting in July 2015, you need to register online first in order to participate in their monthly mini model builds. You can no longer just show up at the store expecting to build your free LEGO model.

    Below is the notice that staff atmail35 received from her local LEGO Brand store. What do you think of this new change? Do you think this is a better method for organizing monthly mini model builds?

    To celebrate Singapore’s 50th year of independence, a special LEGO Education set has been produced. The Ministry of Education in Singapore gave this LEGO set as a gift to every children in the country of 5.4 million people. LEGO 2000446 Singapore Education set is named as Building My SG: Reflect, Celebrate and Inspire and contains 2 minifigures and 3 Singaporean landmarks. Pretty neat isn’t it? Now if only every country in the world did this, we would have a lot more new LEGO sets! (via Brickset)

    Wired has released a video showing the massive UCS LEGO Star Wars 10221 Super Star Destroyer being destroyed! That’s a lot of time spent on building just to get it destroyed. Now how long will it take for them to sort out all those pieces (3152) and rebuild it again? Thanks to Jonathan for the news. (via Brothers Brick)

Other great deals include LEGO Star Wars AT-AT, Snowspeeder and more. Free shipping on orders above $25. Thanks to forum member alexb54 for the heads up.
