Arrived at Home of the Brick

After a short flight from Sweden, I arrived at the Lego House in the afternoon. Today it was ”the calm before the storm”. Tomorrow is the big happening to celebrate the one year anniversary. I visited the Lego Store and purchased two awesome cups of ”pick a bricks”.

Newt comes in a good-looking cape, a nice print on his sweater and a cool brick built hair. Grindelwald has a special transparent eye. This is the only thing which might make you suspect he*s not just a nice old man.

Lego won a lawsuit against LEPIN

Lego has won a landmark case in China against the Chinese clone manufacturer Lepin. The company has used Lego’s trademark and has been recreating sets and selling them at much lower prices. Lepin has no opportunity to appeal against the court’s decision. The company has to pay Lego a damage fee of 2.2 millon dollars or 20 MSEK. This is a positive step in order for future business in China.

A year has passed since Home of the Bricks grand opening and I was there.
