Brand store opens in Glasgow

Posted by ,

The 12th. LEGO brand store in the UK opened today in Glasgow, in the Buchanan Galleries. It's the first one in Scotland and I'm sure it will be welcomed by the many Scottish AFOLs nearby. I suspect the 'grand opening' event will be in a couple of months' time.

There's been no further word on Southampton since LEGO let it slip that a store is to open there, but hopefully we'll hear something more concrete soon.

Update: It's believed that the grand opening weekend will be 6-8th June (thanks Adam K at Brickish)

(Thanks to littlebriony for reminding me to post this).

I've never visited a Lego store but I'm very pleased there is now one in Scotland. So there is usually a separate "Grand opening" after the regular opening day. Good. When I read this news title I thought i had missed the event.

Bah, I was in Glasgow this time last week. A week too early it would seem!

I am actually so happy, didn't realise it was opening this soon! I will try to get there soon, perhaps even this weekend.

Am going to be visiting the in-laws in Glasgow in about 2 months. It's be awesome if that is when the grand opening is. Either way PAB here I come and maybe the horizon express.

I was in the Stratford store today and they had a press release that a 11 year old boy found Mr Gold in the Glasgow store today.

I'll be staying across the street from the Buchanan Galleries in two months! So this is excellent news.

i visited the store in Glasgow today and it was really nice with the usual friendly staff. when my wife and i arrived at the store about 11am there was a bit of a commotion at the door as a kid had just opened and found mr gold! one of the staff was taking his photo as we arrived. it was kind of like one of the kids finding willy wonka's golden ticket. i was going to get myself either the monster fighters haunted castle, arkham asylum breakout or the palace cinema. i thought the cinema looked the best so went for it. i will regret not getting the arkham set for the minifigs but the cinema will look nice next to my film collection.

Could anyone who's been there tell me:

- Was there anything of interest in either the BAM station or PAB wall?
- and how much does it cost for three figures from BAM?

Thanks.

it costs £3.50 for 3 minifigs and £1.25 for one. I went yesterday and got the 3 figs for £3.50 2 series 10 minifigures (the paint baller and the motorcycle mechanic, no mr. Gold !!!) and iron man 3 maliba mansion attack. the store is sooo cool

Bloody Hell, when are they going to open a brand store in Melbourne, Australia. We have a large LEGO community but we don't have anything LEGO here.

I visited the store on opening day, my first official lego store visit so its good they have opened one in Scotland and purchased a few items and got a few parts that I required from the PAB wall and then back again on Saturday with my son so he could experience a Lego shop with the Build a minifigures and PAB wall etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I don't know if this is common for a PAB wall but there were loads of 1x1 plates and 2x4 bricks but guess it wouldn't make economical sense to have loads of 1x4 and 1x6 bricks and more common used parts.

I went yesterday and the staff helped me find a Revolutionary Soldier! They actually found a Mr Gold within 1 hour after they opened on Friday! It was a little kid of about 6 who found it and he got massive applause and cheers from all the employees! I'm sure it would have been a lovely sight!

I visited the LegoStore in Legoland Danmark last thursday. A bit dissapointed they hadn't the Lone Ranger sets over there. So instead I bought the Monster House 10228 ....Lone Ranger has to wait.

The PAB wall had wheels and tyres, but nothing to attach said wheels too. Which was a bit disappointing as I had wheels at the bottom of my cup before noticing there was not axles or the like.

Other than that the shop is nice. Eyed up a few things that I'd been looking at - mini modulars in particular looks better on the box than on the lego site.
