Sheffield is a little too far for me to trek too, although for the Brand Store model I might have to try and combine a trip in with something else.
Here is the link incase anyone wants to know
I treated my Daughter to the Farm Duplo set, as she seemed to enjoy playing with it in store, and I got myself my first large PaB cup. Fortunately, they had LOTs of 1x1 round trans blue and trans clear, which I'm after, so I'm quids in there compared to BL.
I got talking to the guy at the till (who wasn't at all bothered that I'd overfilled my cup), who mentioned the grand opening. I asked him if he knew what the promo items would be. He said he wasn't sure, but there was likely to be a minifig pack, a T-Shirt and something else, and that the "something" else would be something quite special.
I'll be there each of the three days - but I may just give the T-shirt a miss, if that ends up being confirmed.
Also, they had the legs, body and hat for the CMF Magician, but I couldn't find the correct head or a wand, which is a shame, because for £3.50 for 3, I would have snatched them up if they had been. They also had the body, legs and hat for the MMV blacksmith, but again, no head to match.
Now I will have to try to save some money for the Opening Weekend. :)
It will be on the 1st Sept from 8am-9am
At the end of the hour are they gonna make us leave the store and join the end of the queue, or will they let us stay in the store when the doors open?
Will be an interesting morning, that's for sure.
Maybe limit the amount of people inside? Letting people enter in smaller groups. It wasn't like people were browsing today. It was pick the set you had already decided on and then attempt to move towards the till.
Neither happened so my son made a beeline for the monster fighters for his pre-pick and I settled for the chess set on way to q. We got served at 3 and 5 minutes past nine respectively but by then the q was out the door of people waiting to pay.
Maybe they can give the Sheffield staff some feedback and they can adjust as needed?
Anyone know whether the AFOL event is at Manchester as well next weekend?
