Disney ‘s live adaptation of the timeless tale of Beauty and the Beast is still going strong in theaters, and with a current box office record of more than 400 million US dollars in worldwide ticket sales since its debut last Friday, the live action film is set off to be one of Disney’s most successful films to date.
To celebrate the film’s success, Toys R Us is launching its Disney Beauty and Beast Movie Launch Party at all TRU stores nationwide this Saturday, March 25 from 1 to 3PM. The highlight of this one-time event is TRU’s LEGO Build and Take Home activity where children ages 6 and up can build and bring home their very own LEGO Disney Lumiere for free. The event also features a Disney Beauty and the Beast coloring activity where participants can also take advantage of an undisclosed special offer.
If you recall last September, TRU also launched the same build and take home activity where Lumiere’s LEGO version is joined by a brick-built version of his pal, Cogsworth. It was a sure hit among store visitors and patrons back then. Here are the instructions for both Lumiere and Cogsworth in case you want to build them using your existing LEGO bricks.
Be sure to cross out your schedules this Saturday if you don’t want to miss out on this TRU exclusive event. This Toys R Us and LEGO build and take home activity is intended for children ages 6 and up and requires no purchase or fees to participate. Giveaways and other freebies are available while supplies last and are also limited to one per customer.
If you somehow broke your heart with the impressive 120,000-piece model of a sinking Titanic broken in half, which we reported earlier last week, then perhaps you’ll be equally amazed with the incredible details of yet another LEGO masterpiece from Australia’s one and only LEGO Certified Professional, Ryan McNaught. This 65,000-piece, 4 meters long, custom LEGO Concorde model of an Air France Concorde plane will surely impress you as much as the LEGO Titanic MOC. This brick replica even has cutaway details that reveals the entire supersonic plane’s inner working and intricate details. The model went on display at the recently concluded 2016 Brickvention at Melbourne, Australia.
Designed and constructed by certified LEGO master Ryan McNaught and his team at The Brick Man, this replica of what was once the flagship of Air France took 188 hours to complete and is made of 65,000 bricks. From end to end, this custom LEGO Concorde model measures 4 meters. Check out some of these photos so you can have better grasp on the sheer size of this model.
The right side of the replica shows the flawless curves of the plane using intricate layering techniques. McNaught added more realism by installing neat little LED lights for the plane’s engines. The sweeter deal is when you move over to the left side, where a cutaway portion reveals how things work inside this magnificent plane. The details on the passenger seats are very impressive, with McNaught installing 60 or more of them. There’s also provisions for fuel, cargo, and an inclusion of a neat pantry at the plane’s rear galley (wait, is that a croissant?).

Ryan McNaught is the only LEGO Certified Professional in the entire Southern Hemisphere, and is known for building some uniquely Australian creations including the world’s largest LEGO replica of the Sydney Opera House and a Qantas Airbus A380 model. As of to date, there are only 13 LEGO Certified Professionals in the entire world.
