    Reddit has revealed an upcoming LEGO Jurassic World Building Event at Toys R Us stores in America. The picture below is taken from a Toys R Us store advertisement. On Saturday, June 20 from 12-2pm, you can join in for a free LEGO Jurassic World building event. The free build will be the Jurassic World Gate.

    While its only the first day of June, vynsane has already posted next month’s LEGO Brand Stores Calendar! From July 15-31, VIPs will also get early access to a new exclusive LEGO set. In addition, they will be having free gift offers for this month as well. This includes a free LEGO Space Vehicle set with purchases above $35 (promo set comes with LEGOLAND Child Offer Admission), as well as a free collectible poster with any LEGO Star Wars purchase.

    The free monthly mini model build will run from July 7-8 and will be a whale! Pretty cool that they now have the monthly mini model builds two times a month now.

    If you missed our post earlier regarding the changes to the free MMBs, note that the free mini model builds are no longer like before where you can just show up at a LEGO Brand Store and get to participate in the build. You will now need to register in advance. Registration has started for the July 2015 Mini Model Build. So far, atmail35 is reporting that the sign up process is relatively straightforward and easy. She reports that you choose a time slot between 3-7pm (20 minute intervals) and then you list your kids’ names and birthdates. You are allowed to register up to 4 kids and will be required to stay and build.

    Next month’s mini model build will be a LEGO Whale. For the first time ever, LEGO Brand Stores will be having the monthly mini model build for two days. Definitely really good on LEGO’s part as I’m sure they’re trying their best to make sure everyone gets a chance with this new registration process.

    July 2015 LEGO Mini Model Build Details

    Come build this LEGO® Whale model and take it home for FREE after!

    Please note that you are registering for a building event. Guests must participate in the event to receive the free set. Guests will not be permitted to collect the set and immediately leave and may not pick the set up at a later date or time.

    Quantities are limited to approximately 120 per store per night and time reservations are on a first come first serve basis. Models are not for sale and cannot be purchased. One registration with a maximum of 4 children per household. One free set per child. Due to safety restrictions, this event is open to children ages 6-14 only.

    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?
