Oh darn, I guess I will have to take a trip to Legoland ;-) This sounds so awesome. It is amazing what people can do with Legos!

Interesting that he would directly address "rumors" about Pirate Shores at a press event. Sounds like an indirect confirmation to me.

That sounds pretty cool! The list of things I have to do in Florida just keeps getting bigger and bigger...
I'm probably TPR's biggest fan of Premier Rides.

I rode Skyrush before it was cool.

Legoland Florida has sent us a press release along with photos and videos regarding the arrival of several major models that will soon take up residence in the Lego Star Wars Miniland, set to open on November 9th, 2012.

Construction is underway on the newest expansion at LEGOLAND® Florida. Massive LEGO® Star WarsTM models such as the Lambda Shuttle, an iconic spacecraft found in Episode VI Return of the Jedi, have arrived at LEGOLAND Florida and model builders are busy making final adjustments and constructing the animations that are being installed in Miniland USA’s new cluster, LEGO® Star WarsTM Miniland Model Display.

“With over 1.5 million LEGO bricks to be constructed, this project required the assistance of our counterparts across the world. The LEGO Star Wars Miniland models were built in model shops in Germany and California. We have now received all 2,000 models that will make up the new Miniland USA cluster and have begun installation,” said Sam Dalessandro, Model Shop Supervisor at LEGOLAND Florida.

The new LEGO Star Wars Miniland display area will include a scene from each of the six live-action Star Wars movies, as well as a scene from the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars™ all created from more than 1.5 million LEGO bricks and built in 1:20 scale. Following a chronological path through the Star Wars timeline, guests will retrace the major events of the beloved Saga. Some of the 2,000 LEGO® models will be more than 6-feet-tall. Interactive buttons will allow children to activate animations throughout the scenes.

In addition to the amazing LEGO models found in the park, Central Florida’s newest theme park provides a full two day experience for families with children ages 2 to 12. The latest expansion of the LEGO Star Wars Miniland display area is scheduled to open November 9.

The new LEGO Star Wars Miniland display area will be included with park admission. The best way to experience LEGOLAND Florida for the best value is with the new LEGOLAND Florida Resident Pass. Pass members receive unlimited admission for 12 months to LEGOLAND Florida and the LEGOLAND Water Park, as well as all other Merlin US attractions (LEGOLAND California & Water Park, LEGOLAND Discovery Centers, Sea Life Centers and Madame Tussauds), free parking and 10% off Food and Merchandise with no black-out dates. A new monthly payment option of less than $10 per month is also available both at the front gate and online. The Monthly Payment Plan includes a down payment of $57.24 for an adult with monthly payment of $9.26 and $46.44 for child/senior with monthly payment of $7.51 (pre-tax).

I agree, totally nerdy, but totally awesome. Can't wait to see it. Adam is still wiping away his tears of joy. By the way Adam, did you ever get your carbon thing? I don't remember seeing it.

Today Robb and Elissa had the chance to attend a unique grand opening event for the new Star Wars Miniland Expansion at Legoland Florida. This new expansion located in the already fantastic Miniland section of the park features seven unique areas, each themed to one of the six films along with one section dedicated to the Clone Wars show. In attendance at today's event were a number of Darth Vaders, making for some unique photo opportunities as you'll see below... Let's take a look!

They used a lightsaber to cut the ribbon! How awesome is that?

If you haven't realized this by now, I'm a huge Star Wars geek and truly wish I was there at this event...

The Clone Wars section is huge and has interactive elements built into the displays!

Well that's something you don't see everyday!

Here we see both Tatooine and Hoth represented in Lego form. If you remember from our interview with Adrian Jones at the Lego Star Wars Miniland announcement, the Millenium Falcon was his favorite part of the project.

Remember Geonosis from Episode II: Attack of the Clones?

How about Naboo from Episode 1: A Phantom Menace?

Elissa, you have no idea how jealous I am right now!

My jealousy is seriously growing by the second!

And that awesome Darth Maul model we saw from the announcement has found his home in Lego Star Wars Miniland!

And what better note to close on than with the Wampa.

Seriously folks, if you are Star Wars fans you have one extra reason to get out to Legoland Florida!

Special thanks to Legoland Florida for hosting Theme Park Review at today's event!
