Today marks the grand opening of the latest LEGO Certified Store in Singapore at the NEX Shopping Mall which makes it the 8th one on this tiny island.
This LEGO Certified Store (LCS) is similar to the LEGO Brand Stores with the Pick-A-Brick (PAB) wall and the Build-A-Minifigure (BAM) station but one significant difference would be the absence of the LEGO VIP program and the monthly builds.
There is also the usual LEGO Brand Store (40145) set available but it is redeemable only through a “sure-win” scratch card promotion.
You get one scratch card for a minimum of SGD$150 which gives you a chance to win one of these prizes:
There are 250 cards available per day for the duration of the grand opening which is from the 16th of Feb to the 19th of Feb 2017.
There is also a handful of discounted sets that is only available for the opening and there are a couple of pretty cool deals like the LEGO Creator Vacation Getaways (31052) that normally sells for SGD$119.90 which is going for SGD$79.90. That is a decent 33% discount.
The LEGO Star Wars Rogue One AT-ST (75153) and LEGO Technic Bucket-Wheel-Excavator (42055) are also going on sale for this opening at 30% off as well.
Kids who are 16 and below get a free lucky dip with any purchase which they can win polybags or sticker sheets or pencil sets.
The PAB wall is stocked with a healthy selection of plates and bricks but I did not see tiles in any of the cubbyholes. The price for the large cup is SGD$36.50, and the small one is SGD$20.90. Purchase of the PAB does qualify for the Scratch Card promotion. Click here for pictures of the full PAB selection.
In Singapore, there is currently a Gift-With-Purchase (GWP) promotion where you get the LEGO Disco Batman/Tears of Batman (30607) polybag for every SGD$100 spent on LEGO Batman Movie products. This offer is unavailable here as they are promoting the Scratch Card promotion for their opening.
