LEGO Store celebrates grand opening at Destiny USA by building a larger than life Yoda

Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) All the pieces have come together just in time for the grand opening of the LEGO Store at Destiny USA.

NewsChannel 9 first reported when the store opened its doors at the end of September, but on Saturday, staff and customers celebrated the official grand opening.

What better way to celebrate than by building — an eight-foot-tall Yoda to be exact! Shoppers can help build Yoda based on a two-foot model already in the store.

“In the Star Wars universe he’s only about two-feet-tall, so he turns out to be a really great building model because we’re taking a small character and making him really big,” said Chris Steininger, a Lego master builder.

If you stop in the store at Destiny USA, make sure you grab some bricks and get stacking!
