On our recent trip to Chicago we managed to visit The LEGO Store at Water Tower Place, a seven-story mall nestled right next to The Willis Tower. It was pretty incredible. I don’t collect LEGO, but this trip almost made a convert out of me. They had the widest assortment of LEGO sets I’ve ever seen. From their branded sets like Star Wars and Chima to their “Expert” and “Creator” sets to their limited-run Ghostbusters and Simpsons creations, the temptation was great.
If we hadn’t had to worry about having extra luggage on the train ride back, we might have walked out of there with the Simpson’s House, or the Sydney Opera House or maybe one of the other countless amazing sets they had.
This is going to be a largely wordless photo essay. You’ll see the dragon made of LEGO that snakes in and out of the walls, and you’ll see lots of cool sets and people shopping for them. We open with the Chicago skyline and close with a six-foot-tall LEGO Iron Man. Enjoy…
