The 20th anniversary of LEGO Star Wars has spread all the way around the world and reached New Zealand where, on the long weekend of October 4th to 6th, fans will get to enjoy a long weekend of Force-filled fun.

If you're in Auckland over these dates then head to Westfield St Lukes shopping centre to take part in building New Zealandís largest LEGO Star Wars mosaic! The build, which takes place over an action-packed weekend, has its big reveal on Sunday at 11:30 when the members of the 501st Legion lay the final piece of the mosaic.

This three-day event will also see Kiwi padawans helping to build a surprise, super-sized LEGO Star Wars model alongside LEGOís only Certified Professional Builder in the Southern Hemisphere, Ryan "The Brickman" McNaught, battle it out in LEGO Star Wars trivia, build an exclusive mini LEGO Star Wars model to take home and young (and young at heart) Jedi are encouraged to don their favourite Star Wars costumes for the chance to win prizes for best dressed.

Raise your lightsabers to toast to 20 years of some of the greatest battles ever built!

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
