When The LEGO Movie was first released back in February Toys’R’Us ran a fun and free event at their store locations. Participating children were provided the pieces to build Emmet’s car from The LEGO Movie, and even got instructions to build an alternate flying car version. And of course they could keep their little masterpiece. 🙂
The LEGO Movie building event was so popular that Toys’R’Us decided to repeat it. Tomorrow, Saturday, April 12th, from noon to 2 PM you can stop by at your local Toys’R’Us to participate (borrow a kid if you don’t have one… just sayin’…). Expect that the event will be full, so arrive early.
If you can’t make it to Toys’R’Us tomorrow, there is actually a little LEGO set that is quite similar to Emmet’s car; the #3177 LEGO City Small Car that was released back in 2010. The set is now retired, but you can still get it on Amazon if you don’t have it already. See here: #3177 LEGO City Small Car on Amazon
You can either build the LEGO City Small Car for Emmet as it is, or if you want it to look exactly like in The LEGO Movie, you can follow the instructions below to modify it. The instructions for both Emmet’s car and the alternate flying car version have been scanned and posted by flickr member just2good. See a larger version of both instructions here.
If you do make it to the Toys’R’Us building event tomorrow let me know how you liked it! Are you planning to go? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
