We’re just roughly three weeks away before The LEGO Movie 2 lands in cinemas, and we can expect a lot more in-store events to happen as part of the film’s promotions. LEGO fans in North America, particularly in Canada are in for a treat at selected Toys R Us stores, where the TRU brand is still going strong. Beginning this Saturday, January 19 up until February 9, Toys R Us stores across Canada will be hosting the following LEGO Movie 2 events that will give kids the chance to build and take their very own LEGO Movie 2 creations. Here’s a rundown of these events as posted in TRU Canada’s event page.
January 19 (11AM to 1PM)

Use your imagination and build your own scene from the movie! Plus take home a FREE movie poster! Recommended for kids ages 4 and up. While they last. Max. 100 per store.

So if you happen to live in Canada and you have a TRU store near you, it pays off to know these events and pre-register as needed. What is interesting is the micro-build of Emmet’s House which will be given away on February 9, though better expect this to run out quickly since it is only limited to 200 freebies per store.
