68b LEGO Store May the 4th Week Event

Location
Buchanan Galleries, Glasgow 10:00 – 17:00

Mission Report
Day Two of the Lego Store event saw me in my Biker Scout (as opposed to the Stealth Trooper on the sign up) on the shop floor. A slightly busier day, as you might expect for a Saturday, with consistent requests for photos of the four troopers as a group but still allowing the costumers the opportunity to have a wander around the crowded shop floor from time to time. So busy was it in fact that we had to split the lunch breaks so that two of us were about in costume the whole time. I didn’t mind waiting to go for a break on the second shift, but by the time we returned after lunch I was hard pressed to suit up again after so many hours of being on my feet.
What’s worse, the constant parade of shoppers through the store all day had served to increase the temperature to deeply uncomfortable levels, although having to borrow a woollen balaclava (having sacrificed my own to some Cyberman shenanigans a couple of months back) probably didn’t help.

Once again though the manager and staff of the store couldn’t do enough to help us out, both in terms of switching out the main lights to keep the shop cooler and being entirely sympathetic to anyone having to quickly take a lids off breather and gulp of water in the stock room.

While the afternoon may have been a hard slog, I’d still have been happy to carry on after the official end time of the event if requested so I was definitely enjoying it on some level so again I’ll happily sign up again when this comes round next year. Maybe they can build a chair out of bricks in the corner and I’ll just sit there and control R2..?
