Earlier this year Lego announced that the UK would be getting two brand new Lego stores before Christmas, but wouldn't tell us exactly when they were going to open. For those that have been eagerly anticipating the news, you'll be glad to know that Southampton's store opens up in a few weeks time on Saturday 26th October.
Obviously Lego wants to tempt people into the shop during the opening weekend, and Lego is turning it into a four day event of free stuff. Everyone visiting the store gets a free Lego tile that says "I Love Lego Store Southampton" and anyone spending over £125 will get the exclusive set (40145) that's only officially available at Lego store openings.
If that's a bit much for you, spend £45 and you get the mini 'Newbury Juice Bar' from the Hidden Side Range. The grand opening exclusive is also available on eBay for around £35, in case you can't make it or you can't afford to spend another £125 on Lego before Black Friday.
