News from around the web
Here are a couple of newsworthy items that I've been emailed about this week that I've only just found the time to post:
According to this Hungarian LEGO Facebook page, there is a brand store opening in Hungary in September. I can't tell which city it's in but I'm sure someone who reads Hungarian will be able to tell us. (Update: it's in Budapest) (thanks Yellow)
There's some debate and controversy, I believe, about the status of this, which is being called a LEGO 'mono' brand store: it appears not to have any official affiliation with the LEGO company from what I can make out and am being told. If you can read the language, this discussion on Facebook may shed some light. Maybe it's a franchised operation?
LEGO has, at last, launched its own YouTube channel. It has published videos on YouTube in the past of course but they haven't been very well organised. This looks as if it will bring them all together in one place, and ensure they are easily found.
There's already a wealth of mini-movies, TV ads and even fan-created videos, and they are being added at quite a rate, so if you're into LEGO videos, I recommend you keep an eye on it and maybe even subscribe to the RSS feed to keep abreast of new additions.
