At certain LEGO Brand Retail Store openings this year, you'll be able to get a set of a LEGO Brand Retail Store. That's pretty meta. Read on to see pictures and the full press release to learn how you can acquire this interesting set.

Mini Lego store set looks awesome. I know this is nitpicking, but it does bug me that the actual doors, while nice in detail, don't actually open? How are mini Lego people supposed to get into the store! :o (And yes, I know it's too small for minifigs, but maybe micro-figs from the game sets...)Also, this is the first I've heard of the Seattle store. (Which is actually located in a suburb that's even further from DT Seattle than the current Bellevue store... oh well.) Good to see more Lego stores popping up tho.:music:

A Lego store set that can only be acquired in a Lego store that is opening sometime later this year. Interesting.Sadly, none of these new stores will be opening in an area where I live. So I'll probably won't be getting the set. Oh well.

There are seven stores in UK, their locations being Bluewater, Brighton, Cardiff, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Westfield London and Westfield Stratford.This set is purely delicious, albeit a little small. It´s just a pity there is already a store where I live so I won´t get the chance to acquire this set. :P-Gata Posted Image

That's a pretty cool set, although I most likely won't be able to get it, as there's a closer Lego store about half the distance away. Really like the idea, though.

Yay, a LEGO store in the next city northwest from where I live! Ever since that American Girl store that my sister loves opened at OPMall, I've known that there was going to eventually be a Lego store too. I am beyond excited for it!

A Lego store within a Lego store. Despite being, as the news story put it, meta, I couldn't help but think of Inception. And hey, a Seattle location is good news for me!-Ced

Great looking set. I'm currently working on a minifig-scale modular version of this set on LDD (it's easy to make minifig scale just by doubling its size). But I wouldn't be surprised if some other LEGO fan beats me to it!And it'll be hard to get to most of these store openings, but that's what I get for already living in an area with a number of nearby LEGO stores. Doesn't mean we won't try, though!

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
 
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
 
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
 
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
 
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
 
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
 
slipped away...

I'm planning to go to Alphereta and pick up up this set, whenever they open. It's a little bit farther than Discovery Mills, but I'm willing to the extra distance for this and whatever else they may have going on for the opening.
