Hamleys is undergoing a re-refurbishment of its flagship store on London’s Regent Street. Work all ready seems to be well under-way and its LEGO department has been moved from the basement to an extended fifth floor.
Not only has the stock moved but there’s also a new set of large-scale models to see. This time LEGO’s master builders have designed and built models that have a London and British influence; a welcome change from Star Wars characters. Perfect to make LEGO afficiandos and tourists alike reach for their cameras and smart phones.
Here’s a few hasty snaps I took on my (rather modest) smart phone, whilst jostling for position amongst the many owners of long-lens (and rather expensive looking) photographic equipment.

You’re not supposed to smile!
