Latest batch of instructions added

The Brick Apple

Around a dozen new instructions have been added to LEGO Customer Services this week, some of them are very high quality for a change (e.g for 5893) and weigh in at over 100Mb.

Most interesting, however, is 'The Brick Apple', 3300000, which was also discovered by whung. I wonder why it has such a strange set number?

That's a very interesting build; it looks like you can open the top and place something inside! The top piece has a large pillar attached, though, which sucks up a whole bunch of space.

^ It's the core of the apple.

I would prefer the T-shirts. But I agree with ILikePi, this set is very interesting. But has a werid shape to it. And by the way, Im so happy that Huw replied to my comment! :D

@brankell5566-Most apples sold in supermarkets and such are grown to have a round shape to them, it is apparently more appealing. ANy normal apples are more of the shape that is represented in this model. SLighlty off topic but wanted to clear something up :)

I have the post card for the Manhattan grand celebration. If you want, I can upload a picture.

They had a soft open Thursday. It is very cool in there. The top floor has seating around the computers as well as the Duplo. The other level has all the other stuff, including a MASSIVE pick-a-brick section. at least two and a half times as long as the one on Long Island. As cool as the store is, I'm dissapointed in the pricing. The imperial flagship is $20 more there then to purchase it online. Hopefully they'll correct it before the official opening. Other sets like the newer impulse ones are also a little more then other Lego stores, but not by much or all of them at first glance. i.e. the traveler is 3.99 and the farmer is 4.49.

I know that the Orlando (Downtown Disney) Lego Store has held the record for the largest pick-a-brick wall for a while. I wonder if this new store will claim it.

@FizzleMeSexy - I was afraid of the 'NYC markup' - it seems any retail establishment in the city ups the prices on things by a percentage on the dollar. The TRU in Times Square is the same. Hopefully the increase doesn't affect the PaB wall...

@vynsane - The PaB is regularly priced, at least it was on Sunday. They also had most of a box of the series 1 Minifigures. Even if the pricing was under the norm., being a few minute walk away is what hurts the wallet the most.

@FizzleMeSexy - I know what you mean. I work across from Bryant Park, so it's just a brisk walk on my lunch break to get there. Luckily I'm working from home more often than in-office, so it won't be too big a problem. I hit the PaB wall yesterday and at the grand opening celebration I'd say at least 50% of the people in the store had a handful of CMFs, so they still had them.

It is a pity here in Ireland with no Lego Stores anywhere!
