Instructions for a new LEGO Brand Store model, 40145, have been found on the LEGO Customer Services site by Brick Builder.

I'm guessing that it will be used for brand store openings from next year (it states (c) 2015 on the back), replacing the current one, which has been around since 2012.

Check out the image from the back of the instructions that shows interior details after the break.

Wow! Another must have, I think. Big improvement on the current one.

That looks pretty big for a store-opening exclusive. Hopefully it'll be for sale.

Weirdly, there was a CUUSOO (now "ideas") proposal last year for mini-stores, including a mini-Lego Store. It didn't quite look like this model, but I wonder if Lego wasn't covertly inspired by the proposal to make this version?

Very nice! As @ResIspaLoquitor says, it seems quite large for a giveaway. Either its going to be for sale, or Lego are getting more generous with the freebies. Win-win I thnk!

I hope it is for sale at all stores....I want one and don't want to pay too much extra for it

I hope this set is eventually sold in-store or on Lego Shop at Home. Would definitely enjoy adding this to my Lego town! The little Toys r Us shop needs some friendly competition.

Trying to find the instructions on Lego Customer Service Page.

Can't find it.

Nice. I was just at my local LEGO store.

Lovely, wish it would have come with a store employee minifig though.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can't find the instructions either.

Wish this would be available more publicly than store openings where I never get a chance to get one... Love the custom boxes like the Ninjago box and Star Wars box!

By in United Kingdom,

If this if going to be given away at new store openings, when are they opening new stores, and where??

Gravatar
By in United States,

maybe the sticker will be a give-away, with the pieces being available on the PAB wall? one could only hope; and I do wish we could order sticker sheets for sets, from Lego. Oh man, wouldn't that be awesome! idea for anyone at TLG reading this ;)

Now if only there was a LEGO store in Kentucky...

The current giveaway set is rather large for a free thing too, LEGO is sometimes just very kind. Or maybe they will just increase the amount you need to spend. :)

Another one to lust after! And I agree they had a store mini they should have included it in the set!

The concept is cool but some details are lacking in this model, I'm hoping they are saving the best until they figure out how to make a LEGO Store to fit wit the modular buildings as the LEGO's contemporary design doesn't fit with the existing modular line. I'm currently designing my own LEGO Store if you would like to see it: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157646319243991/

@lluisgib, thanks, was looking for the link.

@lluisgib- I was looking for it too, so thanks from me too.

Thanks Lluis, I forgot to add the link :-)

Uhmmm.. great store building and a Padme hairpiece. Can't wait to get this.

Sigh, come on Lego, open stores in Aussieland already!

Makes me wonder if the retails stores are getting a design change on their frontage next year as unlike with the 2012 set this doesn't actually look as much like the bricks and mortar shops..?

Incidentally, do they not give away these sets on the anniversarys of the store openings too? I know Glasgow did for their first birthday as according to the ACM I have four of them!

The current store at Bluewater, UK has a dragon's body going through the shop walls and its head sticking out at the front.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The PAB wall is a good idea, but here it just looks like a bunch of 1x1 round tiles in random colors plastered across one wall. It gives variety, though! The dragon is a neat touch, and the display case looks awesome, even though I can't figure out what those sets are inside it. It seems like it should have more LEGO boxes on shelves, because there's just a few up there and only about five look like boxes with the stickers. (I do want to see those stickers closer up, because those certainly are not all CITY boxes that have always been included in the past with these things.)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like how Brickley is sticking his head out and his arches are sticking out like that. :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

For those above dreaming of the PAB wall - Page 2 of the instructions does suggest that it is a boxed set as the minifigure is emptying the pieces out of the box.

My Darth Vader would love this shop.

Glad a minifig version is out, I think I would be a little more motivated to travel a to a grand opening by me if this set was available.
Are the boxes with graphics printed, or sticker-ed? If stickers Im sure you will hear the usual grumblers about that.

I think that there is room in a Lego City for this one.

By in United Kingdom,

I can only hope that Lego actually sell this set in their stores.
I can never get to the Store openings and will not pay the prices they were selling for on the second market.

Really wish Lego would make a modular of their store someday.

Now if they only opened a store here in Pittsburgh...

By in Poland,

Nice set. :)

By in Italy,

Hello, since the set number, maybe it is a limited release to be sold in selected dealers? Just as 40081 and 40115 exclusively for Legoland...

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

Is there anyone who was fast enough to download the instructions for 4000019 before it was removed again ?? I'll like to have it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This looks awesome! I hope it is available for purchase since there is already a Lego store where I live. So doubtful they will open another one.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I have traveled over the past couple of years to 4 different store openings, including driving to France! It is a long way to go for a free Lego set, but I will certainly make the trip to as many as I can. It is nice to have a weekend away, keeps the girlfriend happy, and oh look, a new Lego store, lets pop in....

Gravatar
By in United States,

That looks nice. I wish we got the Padme hair in a new color, but, since it's an exclusive set that I won't be able to get, I'm glad it isn't.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'll probably skip this one, as I am not keen on Mini-Models.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Is there a site tracking the next official Lego Store openings?

By in United States,

TLG REALLY needs to start selling online these store opening sets a few months after they open a store, so that the rest of the world has a chance to buy them. Many are outstanding little builds, and most of us can't fly around the world to get a little set. Come on LEGO! Mini and micro scale sets are becoming the rage as folks run out of space at home, and the prices should be much lower than with a larger set. This would lower resellers' profits and give everyone a chance to buy one at a more reasonable price.
