Rockstar reception for the world’s best loved toy brand.

PhLUG attends the opening of the first ever LEGO Certified Store at Kidzania Bonifacio Global City. Invited to cut the ribbon, along with the Danish Ambassador and LEGO representatives are PhLUG co-founders Randy Protacio and Stanley Lao.

The fanfare began at 10:00 am with a program and a welcome address by Mr Patrick Pesengco. As the program progressed, eager guests begin lining up for the mid-day opening. Friends and visitors were treated by Fairmont hotel to a LEGO inspired buffet surrounded by large LEGO statues at the alfresco lobby of the soon to open Kidzania.

On the store’s glass window is PhLUG’s own display case containing the original buildings of PhLUGgers Jergens Correa and Carlos Belen. The display contains familiar local establishments and iconic landmarks.

The rockstar reception given by the local LEGO loving community caused the line to extend out of the building where people stayed on queue for an hour before they were let into the store. Boxes flew off the shelves quickly where some items went out of stock in just a few hours. Jayvee Fernandez of Manila Bulletin, also a proud PhLUGger, couldn’t let his boxes down—“it’s the last of its kind, can’t take a chance to lose them”.

LCS Manila is open Monday to Sunday 10am to 9pm
