Star Wars Day celebrations may all well be over, and in case you missed out on one of the LEGO Store highlights during May the 4th which is the Porg Make and Take Build Event, you’ll be pleased to know that here’s your chance to build one of your own. Thanks to Brickset, the building instructions to create this Porg are now available online for everyone to try. So while we’re waiting to see if the UCS-like Porg (75230) will really happen in October, try to see if you have the necessary parts to build this portable avian cutie.
Just a few moments ago, another welcome surprise came from Walmart’s online portal. Though I’m not quite sure if this is accidental on the part of the online retailer, but it sure gave credence to what was rumored across LEGO fan forums for quite some time.
After the successful, grand opening of LEGOLAND California Resort’s LEGOLAND Castle Hotel, it looks like the brick-inspired, family-centered theme park has now set its sights in adding a new, underwater twist. Starting this July, families and visitors at LEGOLAND California Resort will be treated to a unique, underwater adventure that includes an Interactive Treasure Hunt together with 2,000 real sea animals aboard 8 submarines that were inspired by actual LEGO City sets. Entitled as the LEGO City: Deep Sea Adventure Submarine Ride, the submarine itself features a touchscreen where passengers get to find gems and lost sunken treasure within a humongous 300,000 gallon tank.
