Second update: The stickers were doled out by an employee as the little builds were being assembled, so no chance of seeing them turn up elsewhere. Perhaps a member of the AFOL community can drum up some custom ones. Fully assembled MOC above.

There are bins laid out with numbers of how many of each element to take, kind of like how Toys’R’Us used to have their in-store build events. There’s also a sticker sheet to add some finishing touches to the model. It doesn’t look like a minifig can actually fit inside it though. The medium being LEGO, the stickered elements can be repurposed for a larger, more show-accurate MOC. Yes, I just stated the obvious.
