Emboldened by the success of their in-store May The 4th Be With You event, German mono-brand store JB Toys is hosting another LEGO Star Wars event next weekend (August 20th and 21st).
Starting at 10 am on both Friday and Saturday, the Oberhausen store will be hosting their own tailor-made (meaning unofficial) LEGO Star Wars Day with events such as:
- Mosaic Build – help build a 200,000 piece LEGO Star Wars mosaic (each participant will receive a special thank you gift)
- MOC Exhibition – drawn from local and regional LEGO User Groups, JB Toys is bringing some of the best fan builds to their store
- German 51st Garrison – costume-clad fans in Darth Vader, Stormtrooper and many more outfits will be at hand
- Exclusive Brick – made specially for the event, JB Toys have commissioned a exclusively print torso element
There will be food and drink served at the event, and all proceeds will go to a local children’s hospice – check out their splash page for more information and directions to the store.
