Lego Store holds minifigure speed building competition

Posted June 17, 2009

— The Lego Store at Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh held a mini-build competition Wednesday evening.

Contestants raced to see who could assemble a Darth Vader out of Legos in the shortest amount of time. The winner received a limited-edition Darth Vader minifigure.

The Lego store opened last month.

    This is news why???

    I like the store, and it is good to have now that KB Toys *and* Toys R Us are out of Crabtree, but this is either ad/product placement, or a realllly slow news day.

    The Mindstorm sets get expensive because they have a lot of electronics and sensors involved. They aren't for everyone. They store is a good mix of "make a bag of random pieces" like jelly beans, inexpensive small kits, licenced items (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc.), and other themes (cities, cars, Bionicle).

    I went in there the other day when I was out shopping. I was simply amazed at some of the kits they have for sale now. Then I saw the prices and laughed. One kit was $500. A guy with a kid remarked that he could either buy his kid a used car or a lego set.
