Highlights from the Kickoff of LEGOLAND’s Star Wars Days 2018 — A Guest Post by Brian Sims
Two years ago, Star Wars contributor James Floyd invited me to my first Star Wars event at the LEGOLAND California Resort and it quickly became one of my favorites places in Southern California to get my Star Wars fix.
This past weekend, LEGOLAND kicked off the first of two LEGO Star Wars Days #BuildTheForce weekends for 2018.
With an outpouring of support from the 501st, Rebel Legion, R2 Builders, Saber Guild and Mandalorian Mercs this event has become a highlight for Star Wars fans and Lego builders.
The event includes:
• Family Build Challenge
• Miniland Scavenger Hunt
• Star Wars™ Costume Contest
• Character Meet & Greets
• Droid™ Hunt with Costumed Fan Group
• WB Games Family Gamespace featuring LEGO® Star Wars™video games
Other activities include:
• Use The Force blindfold challenge – Compete in pairs as one team member is blindfolded, and the other describes to them how to build a mystery LEGO Star Wars™ object!
• Landspeeder™ Build & Test – How would you design your Landspeeder™ to maximize its velocity? Build it here and then race it against everyone else’s…and if you don’t win, build and test a new one!
