Postby Staff » Fri Feb 26, 2010 2:19 pm

I just got an email from the nice folks at LEGO saying that 10211 Grand Emporiumicon will be available starting Monday March 1, weeks ahead of schedule through LEGO Shop@Home. The email also had some nice detailed pictures of the minifigs and interior spaces, linked to below. Enjoy!


10211 – Grand Emporium
Ages 16+. 2,182 pieces.
US $149.99 CA $199.99 UK £ 139.99 DE € 149.99

Welcome to the grand opening of the Grand Emporium!

The LEGO® Modular Buildings series continues with this spectacularly detailed 3-story department store, designed in a realistic scale with lots of special building techniques and rare pieces. On the street outside, citizens carry shopping bags, send letters at the mailbox, admire the window mannequins, and cool off at the ice cream stand while a busy window washer works above. Enter through the revolving door to discover a ground-floor clothing department, complete with a cash register, fitting room, hats, jewelry, perfume, and even a selection of spare trousers. A brick-built escalator carries customers to the second floor housewares department with glassware and golden plates for special occasions, and then it’s up to the top floor for the toy department (complete with toy house and push-scooter) and a great big chandelier above the open atrium. Up on the roof are a billboard and skylight. Includes 7 minifigures and measures 15" (38 cm) high and 10" (25 cm) wide. Ages 16+. 2,182 pieces.

Anyone else notice that the kid is pulling back the drape to the changing room in one of the pictures, and the gentleman getting changed appears to be naked from the waist down with yellow legs, instead of the pants shown in the minifig picture?

I think the LEGO team is having a little "adult" joke.

At least he's not naked.

Besides, I wouldn't qualify a guy being caught with his pants down as an "adult" joke. Or maybe I would, in other context. :O
