This isn't an iPad release. There won't be lines. I'd just show up when the mall opens and get some rest.jal4u2c wrote:I am going to go saturday and try to get a Lego Store Set.

I just realized I planned an event on May 12 that will take me in the opposite direction of the Wauwatosa Mall.
You've never been to a Lego store grand opening, have you?mah4546 wrote:This isn't an iPad release. There won't be lines.

get to "help build" R2D2.
I DID go to the store opening at the Fairview Mall (Toronto) store opening to get the
minifig set, and the lines were CRAZY. We got to the mall 30 minutes after the mall open, and
were BARELY able to get the minifig set they were giving away. They were building Yoda.
It really depends on the location. The Rockefeller Center store opening was insane. The entire promenade was filled with people lined up to help build the apple and/or enter the store. The Roosevelt Field Long Island store opening was less crowded, but still ended up with a great turn-out. I felt silly waiting second in line for about an hour and a half before #3 showed up, but then the line quickly grew from there. By the time the doors opened, I had made my purchases, and left, the line went past the block of stores (to the right, if you were looking at the entrance from outside) and around the corner past a few more stores.mah4546 wrote:This isn't an iPad release.

So, it varies. To say "there won't be lines" is a gross overgeneralization.
Having only been to the Mall of America store, I was shocked with how small the store is. The pick-a-brick wall was also lacking, mostly 2x4 in various colors. The build-a-minifig section had parts for the surfer, figure skater, mad scientist, musketeer... but not their accessories (only cups, walkie-talkies, axes, binoculars, handcuffs...).
I had a fun night, and I'll definitely being going back often (at least until they open a store in Appleton).
Couldn't agree more.
Still, they use the space very well. It did not feel crowded at all. In the Schaumburg store I felt like there was no space to move at all.
We went over to the Mayfair store earlier today, and I wrote a review of our visit. I'm looking forward to many more visits. At least until we get one locally :fingers crossed:
Please report back and let us know how it was!
