It was announced today on Licensing.biz that the UK’s new flagship LEGO Brand Store in Leicester Square will open on November 17. The store will be the largest LEGO Brand Store in the world covering more than 914 square meters over two floors. You’ll have the usual things from other LEGO stores such as building areas and a Pick-a-Brick Wall. One of the sights to see there will be a large version of the Big Ben made from more than 200,000 LEGO bricks and will have an illuminated working clock face.
The thing that fans have been wondering is if there will be any exclusives for the Leicester opening. You won’t have to worry as there will be an exclusive minifigure which will be the store mascot, Lester the tea-drinking minifigure. There’s no word on how to get it but there’s a report saying that it might be available for purchase but it could just mean that it’ll be available with purchases of a certain amount.
Of course, none of this affects individuals who aren’t near the UK but if you’re heading there in November, you may want to swing by the opening. Now to get my hands on that LEGO Lester minifigure somehow…
