LEGO my lightsaber!

Events, Movies, Sci-Fi & Fantasy, Television

The closest LEGOLAND is far, far away, but soon you can get a taste of brick paradise here in the Valley — Jedi-style.

On the weekend of June 4-5, the Arizona Science Center in downtown Phoenix will be hosting a Star Wars-themed “Miniland” event with a model-building challenge offering the chance to win one of three VIP prize packages. A Master Model Builder from LEGOLAND California will be on hand to judge the entries, and a winner will be named at 3 p.m. June 5. Prizes include LEGO toys, two-day passes to LEGOLAND and its water park and the Sea Life aquarium in Carlsbad, accommodations at the Sheraton Carlsbad and an invitation to participate in an Ultimate Build-Off at LEGOLAND next January.

Also not to be missed: photo-ops with a life-sized LEGO model of Darth Vader and other Star Wars scenes.
