Coming to Hong Kong and wanting to buy Lego as well? I think that can be a good idea as Hong Kong offers better prices than many other countries in the region. But even if you just wanna figure out what the Lego shopping experiences is like, I can fully understand that Lego fan behavior.

Lego has no official outlets in Hong Kong, despite that there are many shops in this city, before I can fully set up a google map for that (which is in progress), I would only name 2 sources, which I think is pretty enough for visitors who will not spend the whole vacation running around seeing many Lego shops in town.

The first one is ToysRUS, just visit this link to see the branch locations, I suggest TST branch at Ocean Terminal, where you can try out the Star Ferry, as well as have a great dining experiences there (many good options around): http://www.toysrus.com.hk/inside/location.htm

The other one is In's Point at Yaumatei, Kowloon, which is a shopping center with a high concentration of Lego shops. These are small, and sometimes a one-man band type of shops, price can be negotiable and usually lower than market, many older sets can also be found here. It can be easily accessible through MTR, a few blocks away from Yaumatei station Exit A2. Please note that most shops open at 4:00p.

Address: 534-538 Nathan Road, Yaumatei, Kowloon

Lego Shops Google map which I am working on (in Progress):

I was not looking carefully and thought that taking out Celebration Luke minifig from the LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary would cause some sort of damage to the book's look, but the fact is, all I need to do is to cut the tape and the cover can be freely opened and closed, taking the minifig in and out is extremely easy, what a nice design!

Thanks to Huw from Brickset, who had not only pointed out my misunderstanding on the design, and had also done an excellent review on this book!

I recently blogged about the nice review I found at Eurobricks on the Lego Pirates Chess set, and later I found out that the "hats" wore by the imperial soldiers in the Chess set is different from those from the Tic Tac Toe set, I am not good at western history and asked about this in Eurobricks, and a number of nice people shared very helpful information, please find the thread at http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=32695, I think a good understanding on this "hats" history can help us to recreate accurate historical scenes on Lego.

Just found out today that Only 4 local ToysRUS Branches in Hong Kong has the new Star Wars 2009 H2 Sets: Central, Causeway Bay, TST and Shatin.

It seems to me that they have only limited inventories.

In case you'll be travelling to Hong Kong in the next few days and want to buy these sets, please check out the ToysRUS store locations at:

If TST is convenient for you, go there, it is the biggest.
