This Friday, finally this Friday, Solo: A Star Wars Story will arrive in cinemas and then people can see for themselves whether or not this franchise spinoff, described as a “space western”, was well-put together despite its production history of directorial changes and similar troubles.
On that day, the LEGO Store in Walt Disney World’s shopping complex Disney Springs will be hosting a building event that will carry on over the weekend. It’s necessary to have it go for that many days, because unlike recent building events in Europe and Canada, this is a giant undertaking needing lots of people.
For those thinking this is another “Make a micro Millennium Falcon and Take it home” stunt, it’s not. Rather, Disney Springs’ LEGO Store is inviting all interested comers to assist a team of Master Builders over the weekend to build a giant Falcon instead, measuring 15ft length x 12ft width.
It’s almost a sure bet that this big Millennium Falcon brick model will be in the same colors as the one in Solo, whites and blues. That’d be sweet and will definitely sell that this is a promotion for the long-awaited Star Wars spinoff starring Alden Ehrenreich as young Han.
The Falcon-building exercise at LEGO Store Disney Springs will be from May 25 to May 28, from 12 noon to 8 PM each of those four days. In addition, there will be free minifigures from the store with every minimum $35 total purchase, a different character for each promo day.
- May 25 – Darth Vader Magnet
- May 26 – Admiral Yularen Minifigure
- May 27 – Han Solo Minifigure
- May 28 – Scarif Stormtrooper Minifigure
The listed free minifigures are available over the weekend while supplies last. For more info on the Disney Springs LEGO Store event, check out the official Facebook event page here.
