Back to the 80’s with I LUG NY at the Queens LEGO Store

I LUG NY members Cody, Murphy and I met up at the Queens LEGO Store to swap out a Halloween model for a model reflective of growing up in the 1980’s. Models from this LUG Showcase include Cody’s K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, the General Lee from the Dukes of Hazard as well as another icon of the 80’s, MTV. Remember when they truly were a music television channel?

The store staff and management especially, loved this window! When you stop by the Queens LEGO Store be sure to check this display out.IMG_2862 IMG_2863 IMG_2860
