Venue: Times Square, Causeway Bay
Theme: Scandinavian Christmas Village and Celebrations for LEGO’ s 80th Anniversary
This was a big project coordinating with LEGO Hong Kong since the beginning of 2012. This was also a big challenge for us because we had not done the creations out of minifigure scale.
The christmas village was built by several creators first and the model had sent to Mainland for enlargement. It was quite difficult to do so because the material for the enlarged model was wooden parts. The painting surrounded the wooden parts must be the same as the real LEGO parts / products. So the production in the factory really took a long time…
On the other hand, besides the village model, we needed to build some sculpture products like bread, cakes, cups, forks and knifes, art paintings, etc… Quite challenging to us!
Finally, we had got 11 sets of Scandinavian Christmas Villages, several big Santa Clauses, enlarged minifigures, a Christmas Train, and our LEGO models. All the exhibits were displaying on the outdoor plaza and the lobby of the Times Square Hong Kong. The show lasted for 1.5 months and there were huge traffics during the exhibition period.
