Fellow LEGO fans, let me share with you more information and details on LCS @ ION Orchard opening on 14th September 2017:

LEGO® Singapore and Bricks World are pleased to announce the opening of a new LEGO® Certified Store (LCS) in Singapore on 14th September 2017.  Located at ION Orchard #04-15, the store will be the largest in Singapore and will provide a complete LEGO experience via a Store Calendar of events and activities.

There are over S$28,000 of prizes to be won on the opening weekend via Sure Win Scratch Cards and Family Lucky Dips.

The LEGO® Certified Store at ION Orchard will be the seventh store to be managed by Bricks World in Singapore.

“The opening of this new store as a Flagship location further strengthens our presence in Singapore and supports our aim of providing more attractions on Orchard Road for Singaporeans and tourists alike,’ said George Papasolomontos, Managing Director, Bricks World.  ‘The space and set up in this store will allow customers to experience a more complete program of interactive LEGO activities, similar to that in the US and Europe, through the Bricks World LEGO Certified Store Calendar launched in July 2017’.

Let me share with you more information of the #GoRogue campaign from the press release information below –

A team of Star Wars superfans today revealed the new toy line for the highly anticipated “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” movie via a series of fan-made animated shorts launching on the Star Wars social channels. As part of a competition in collaboration with creative network Tongal, a team was assembled to write, direct and produce original, fan-made stop-motion shorts starring key toys from the new line to kick off a global UGC contest that asks fans to share their own “Rogue Stories.”

“These fan-created shorts are a tribute to the incredible content that the Star Wars community posts online every day,” said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “The Go Rogue campaign was designed with Star Wars fans in mind – we want them to be front and center in the run up to ‘Rogue One’ by imagining and creating their own Rogue Stories.”


When Star Wars news breaks, many fans worldwide react by sharing their own videos online. According to new research[1], fans posted over 838,000 pieces of Star Wars-related content on YouTube in the past year alone, which is more than 2,296 per day and nearly 96 per hour. Star Wars fan-generated content is also incredibly popular, accruing more than 16.3 billion views in the last year – equivalent to everyone in the world viewing at least two fan-created videos.

The global contest, which kicks off September 30, invites fans to share their own short stories or skits set in a galaxy far, far away… Winning entries from around the globe will be chosen by a panel including “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” director Gareth Edwards. Beginning September 30, fans 18 and older can enter the Go Rogue contest on Winners will be invited to Lucasfilm in San Francisco to attend a screening of “Rogue One,” and see their short story on the big screen.

The fan-created shorts showcasing the new line of “Rogue One” toys for the first time launches on the Star Wars social channels today, with new instalments rolling out through September. The team was lead by James DeJulio at Tongal, and the series was written by Kevin Ulrich and brought to life by stop-motion animators and directors Dan MacKenzie and Tucker Barrie. The stories follow the adventures of “Rogue One” toys from Hasbro, LEGO, FUNKO, JAKKS Pacific, Mattel and Disney Store as they try to track down the building instructions to the LEGO Star Wars Death Star set which have been misplaced by the Empire.

“I’ve been a Star Wars fan my whole life so this is a dream project,” says James DeJulio, co-founder of Tongal. “It’s been amazing to see what an inspiration Star Wars has been to so many members of our creative community, whether that’s coming up with their own Star Wars storylines, or playing out scenes with Star Wars toys at home with their kids. I’m excited to share this first ‘Rogue Story’ with the world and hope it inspires other fans to share theirs.”

The full range of new “Rogue One” and Star Wars products will be available globally starting on September 30. Join the global #GoRogue conversation on social.

Tongal’s creative network includes 120,000 writers, directors and animators across 150 countries. For more information, go to
