Wallet Card: Lego Edition

Yesterday Junior Junkie posted some Lego-themed wallet card pictures. In it he showed a Lego store in Dallas that he said "while it did not have as big a selection as the Lego section of the Toys 'R' Us in Times Square, it does have a significantly bigger selection than the Lego Store at Rockefeller Center."

Here are some wallet-card photos of both to compare.

The Rockefeller Center store was jam-packed with tourists taking pictures, making it hard to get a good shot. Still, here is a photo of a Rockefeller Center made entirely of Legos.
I am not a Lego connoisseur - when I was a kid there were just simple playsets that I would ignore and just build my own random stuff with it. The idea of a whole Lego store was improbable.

The Toys R Us in Times Square has a sizable Lego area as well. It's a different layout than the Lego store so it is hard for me to say which was bigger - both are pretty substantial. I like the layout in the Toys R Us, though. From left to right you have Lego representations of the Statue of Liberty, the Hearst Tower, the Empire State Building, the Lipstick Building, a Yankee hat, and the Woolworth Building.
 As a huge Star Wars fan I had to take a picture of this display in the Toys R Us, featuring life-size sculptures (not Lego) of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, a clone trooper, and Ahsoka Tano.


  1. !!!! I was only there for one day, but I was able to visit both as well since they are so close. I'd be lying if I said I didn't well up just a little in Toys 'R' Us. It was stunningly beautiful.
