Saturday, September 22nd 2012 the Star Wars Costuming groups were invited to the morning opening of the Lego Store at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park, KS - just a regular Star Wars day! We get to work this store often, and it's always a blast - the management knows us and treats us exceptionally well.

It was a smaller event, but lots of kids and excited families to see the Star Wars groups out and about.

Those in attendance included Bill and Karissa H, Greg B, Erica D, Trenton T, Dave S, Bruce C, Brandon P, Bennett G, Nick L, Donald S, Nathan and friends/family to take part!

While we didn't set-up a table (being inside the mall), we interacted with the families, took lots of pictures, and brought a lot of smiles to the faces of parents and kids like. We might have even picked up some legos for ourselves...



The Tusken and Jawa were very popular this day...









So was our Jedi! Poor Donald was having his picture taken with so many people he had a hard time moving!







I sense a devious plot here...





Never trust two Mandos...



A Rebel supporter with two mercenaries! (in her defense, she's my fiancee and I'm the Green/yellow Mando during this event)



Pre-Event...



The Store Manager, he was great! Plans to have us out again for future events.




Events at the lego stores in the KC area are always a hit, and it's great watching kids fight the urge to play with legos, so they can hang around and take pictures with all of us.

This was my first troop (not counting CVI), and I had also never been to the Lego store before. I think I was as excited as this kids were!
