The first Flagship store opened in Disney Resort in Shanghai back in May 2016 and was the largest LEGO Brand store in the world back in its opening. 2 years later, The LEGO Group has announced its second store scheduled to open in Autumn (end of the year) at Shanghai ShiMao Festival City in People’s Square located in the heart of the city. The new store is expected to be slightly more than half the size of the Disney Resort Store at 6297 sq feet (585 square meters) over two floors. In comparison, the first store was around 10,764 sq feet spread (1,000 square metres) over two floors.
Last year, the Shanghai Skyline LEGO Architecture skyline was revealed and with this new store in place, it is another stepping stone for LEGO’s growth in China. Read our review of the Shanghai skyline here.

However, today Walmart has revealed even more sets, including a throwback to the original Jurassic Park that includes Dr. Grant, Ellie, Lex, and Tim in an iconic and terrifying scene with a velociraptor. LEGO is heavily investing in this license, with more than a dozen new sets across System, Juniors, and Duplo.

It’s a BrickHeadz kind of news day today, with the upcoming Marvel Avengers Infinity War BrickHeadz revealed earlier today, followed by the final box art for the Go Brick Me customization kit we first shared from Toy Fair a few weeks ago. 41597 Go Brick Me will be released in April and includes 708 pieces at a retail price of 29.99 (USD) / 39.99 (CAD).
The response to our coverage from Toy Fair last month was overwhelmingly positive, even from non-BrickHeadz builders. The sheer number and variety of pieces in the set for such a low price point is excellent.
