Barnes & Noble will be holding an in-store building event for The LEGO Movie 2 on February 23 at 2:00pm. The build will be a Mini Emmet’s Dream House/Rescue Rocket which is the same one that Toys R Us Canada got last month. In addition to the build, there will also be other activities and giveaways there as well. Supplies are limited and the press release says to sign up for the event but I don’t see anywhere on the site to sign up. I suggest calling your nearest store to see if they are taking sign ups or if it’s first come, first served.
Update: Here’s the link to sign up for the building event.
