I was hoping that it would be the weekend after. Working :(

I didn't get an e-mail either...

I live nowhere near Leeds, but as it happens on that weekend I am heading up that way for a University open day, so I should be able to get to the grand opening on Saturday and perhaps get my hands on the Lego Store set!

Great looking freebies! I hope I can attend a LEGO Store grand opening some day…

Is that the actual minifigure set, or just a placeholder? Even at that small size they look more interesting than usual. Hopefully I'll be able to pay a visit to Leeds on the Sunday.

I'll be there on Saturday, another mini brand store but this one is going to a good home :-)

Was hoping the grand opening would tie in with a home match of my beloved Leeds united. Still, no reason not too miss out on an exclusive batch of minifigs!
I will certainly be there!

I'd hazard a guess at placeholder @SilentMode, usually they have a unique card background (and are more boring than that!)

@rawbob I'm not aware I did anything specific, I get VIP and Shop @ Home Emails, it came on the same kind of template as the S@H promo emails.

That free Lego store set looks neat.

Looking on the LEGO website, they no longer list a Danbury, CT store coming. What happened?

^^It really is as neat as it looks. I got mine at the Watford opening, for which I offer eternal thanks to the staff. It has pride of place on my shelf.

No doubt i'll be there. Never been to a grand opening...or a LEGO Store apart from the LEGOLAND store because the closest one is 2+ hours away but i can't miss a grand opening :-) Also, i really would like the freebies, any of them really :-)

@thelittlelegoshop The only real concern will be Saturday with the retail store set - at Watford's grand opening the scalpers were in full force! Sunday was relatively quiet.

Now I've swapped a holiday over, going Saturday only. Gonna be unhappy if I don't get a brand store.

Are these Grand Opening's different from the official opening dates of the shops as have not heard anything about the opening of the Glasgow store next Friday, 10th May.

^The 10th of May opening for Glasgow (if it opens then) can be considered a 'soft' opening. A Grand Opening is normally about 6 weeks after the 'soft' opening of a store.

hi maniac

Yeh Lego confirmed in an email Glasgow is to open on the 10th. Do you know if stores have any promo's on soft opening of stores?

I too am curious about the Danbury store opening. It's a 20-minute drive from me, and i was there to see if there was any store facades with an opening date, but didn't find any Lego branded stores under-construction. I'm hoping for the Lego Store set myself, and hopefully due to the demand for LEGO sets these days, the first 500 ppl to spend 50$ will get the goodies. If i don't get one, i'll be sad. As for the minifigs, what's different about them over regular minifigs?

By in United Kingdom,

^^Not sure. It's the Grand Opening you want to look out for.

Hi Maniac

What else do they put on apart from the 3 offers mentioned?
