/checks new calendar/

"The LEGO Store at Oak Ridge Mall is Coming Soon!"

So probably not this weekend.

If it was this weekend this thread would be bumping with activities as people play the "how early should I get there" game.

I remember hearing somewhere that it will open the first week of May.

Correct. Hopefully, I will be able to visit Oakridge on Friday. I will TRY to just look and not buy anything until the grand opening ceremony.

Has anybody ever seen 'Canada' & Maple Leaf Figure Keychain at any of the Lego brand stores? Are they already discontinued?

I have LOTS of those in white from my mom's Lego from when she was a kid. I inherited hundreds of pieces from her.
According to Bricklink, those fence parts came out in 2000. :look:

No way! I now have to go look through my collection, I'm SURE those are from her Lego! Perhaps she received some newer parts from a relative before she gave it to me? My mom was a kid a LONG time before the 2000's. (No offense, mom.)

Is there a similar fence from the 70's? 80's? Maybe someone gave her Lego from that time period?

Nope, someone bought one from the recently opened Vancouver LEGO store the other day.

Not supposed to be released before May 1, but Mastermind Toys in Toronto has them available on their website (according to their Facebook page) and they'll "be in all stores by April 24!".

BTW folks...Fairview LEGO store still carries that "Canada" keychain...saw some there on Wednesday.

This is good to hear. I have a hundred dollar gift certificate for Chapters with Series 7s name on it. I'm eager to fondle some packs, yo!

This was posted on Brickset but I think it is also worth posting here. TRU is having a "secret" sale on General Grievous Starfighter (8095) and Emperor Palpatines Shuttle (8096) both of which are on for 31.87Can :thumbup: .

Is that why I saw a bunch of dudes buying them last night at Toys R Us? I thought it was odd but never investigated.

Eh, I'm not into the SW so it's no great loss, but that's a good price for those kits, even just for parts.

For those of you that attended the LEGO Store grand opening ceremonies and got the t-shirt, I have one question for you. Were there different sizes available to choose from?  :sweet:
