Cool...any one know if there's any store opening promotions on the Saturday?

...the last of the Star Wars Planet sets should bag me a free pick-a-brick box

Anything like the mini store set or minifig pack like in Leeds recently?

Has the 'official' opening date been announced yet? Will be popping in on Friday after work to have a nose about.

They must have moved the Metrocentre from Gateshead to Newcastle. Impressive.

Reports from the recent European store openings suggest that they are not doing minifig packs at the grand openings any more. I think quite a few people have complained online that the minifigs are not very good (nothing unique, nothing specific to the town).

@omnius, yes another case of Newcastle trying to steal the lime light. Metrocentre, Hilton, Millennium Bridge, Angel, all in Gateshead or as the the councils now like to call the area NewcastleGateshaed. Very annoying. (P.S I'm from Gateshaed if you haven't guessed...)

People know where Newcastle is.

I was talking to a fellow southerner (although we now both live in the north) a month or so ago and I mentioned Gateshead - only to get the reply: Gateshead, that is near Harrogate isn't it? So I asked where Harrogate was: on the coast just up from Hull.

He knows where Newcastle is, as we both went to an away match there last year.

^ When I lived in Bromley for 6 months I found a lot of people living inside the M25 had little to no knowledge of the rest of the UK outside the M25. Asking them to point to any town in the North on a map is like pin the tail on the donkey.
