And while Canada had this fun, free LEGO Mini Millennium Falcon model build yesterday, U.S. stores will be getting it next weekend…Continue Reading →

But the end of April is nigh, and now we can look ahead to the June 2016 LEGO Store Calendar–which features one of the best promo sets of the year, a surprise VIP Early Access set, a Seaplane Mini Monthly Model Build and more!Continue Reading →
