2019 marks the 20th Anniversary of LEGO® Star WarsTM and to celebrate LEGO® Australia are inviting fans to take part in the world’s largest LEGO® Star WarsTM unboxing at Westfield Chatswood on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of May 2019.
Aussie Padawans will use the force to unwrap and help build a surprise, super-sized LEGO Star Wars model alongside LEGO Star Wars Creative Director Jens Kronvold Frederikson and LEGO’s only Certified Professional Builder in the Sourthern Hemisphere, Ryan McNaught.
For the first time ever, Jens Kronvold Frederikson, LEGO Star Wars designer for 20 years, will be flying down under from LEGO HQ in Billund, Denmark to be a part of this epic occasion, treating guests to a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet and build with a real-life LEGO Star Wars designer.
In an action packed weekend, kids (and grown ups!) will have the chance to help unveil the secret LEGO Star Wars model, play along with Jens in creative workshops and tour his studio, view historic LEGO Star Wars product, battle it out in LEGO Star Wars trivia and build an exclusive mini LEGO model to take home.
Young and old Jedi are encouraged to don their favourite Star Wars costumes for the chance to win prizes for best dressed. Die-hard fans can also go in the running to win LEGO Star Wars prizes across the weekend.
Join forces with members of the 501st Legion on Saturday to lay the final piece of the model at 2pm and raise your lightsabers to toast to 20 years of some of the greatest battles ever built.
Don’t forget to share the fun on social using the hashtags #Maythe4thbewithyou, #StarWarsDay and #LEGOStarWars20th.
May the 4th be with you!
