I’m back from the Monthly Mini Build at the LEGO Store today and as we reported earlier today, the employees were handing out a new item today. If you didn’t have a chance to see yet, it is The LEGO Store Passport that one of our readers emailed us images of.
I’ve got one in my hands and I must say it’s a pretty neat little collectible. The cover is made of a material that mimics what you get with a real passport and if you don’t look closely, you may mistake it for the real thing. It is embossed in gold printing with the words “Passport” on top and “The LEGO Store” on the bottom. The middle is a pretty large outline of a gold 2×4 brick.
Inside are twelve pages of the Passport and the first page is the identification page. There’s a minifigure head which represents whoever the passport is for. You can probably glue a real portrait picture to give it a more authentic look if you want. There’s also space for your name, date of issue, and a signature.
On the next page and also a few more in the back, there’s spaces for the Passport to be stamped with different LEGO Store locations around the world to document your travels.
In the middle is a place for stamps to be applied if you have attended the Monthly Mini Model Builds this year. If you or your parents know you’ll be attending the Mini Builds, be sure to bring your LEGO Store Passport to get it stamped that month.
Finally, there is space for stamps if you have attended any LEGO Club Meetings every month.
Overall, The LEGO Store Passport is a pretty neat item that LEGO has decided to giveaway. Like I said before, it does add interaction between the stores and the kids/adults who participate in it. As of this writing, there’s no word of any incentive to having the whole thing filled with stamps but it’s still a fun thing to do and try to complete. Although it is more oriented for kids, adults can most likely get one too if you asked the employees.
