Mega-micromanager – February 2014

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

In honor of the LEGO Movie (in theaters February 7th), we decided to build a micromanager. But not just any micromanager, this is a quadruple-sized version of the monthly mini-build giveaway (available in LEGO stores on February 4th).  So it’s a mega micromanager monthly mini-build.

If that wasn’t enough, the body  splits in half to reveal all kinds of robo-guts!

See it during February at the Westchester LEGO Store in White Plains, NY.

Brett, Cody and Mike changed the LUG Showcase Window in the Palisades Center Lego Store this past weekend.  Impressed by the colors, elements and design of the NEW, The Lego Movie sets they created a cityscape with many characters and sets.  It looks like Emmitt and Wildstyle are trapped in front of Lord Business Plans office building; will Bob, Mike and Jo be able to separate them from this bricky, I mean sticky situation?
