The requirement to get the 40145 Lego Brand Retail Store is pretty high–you have to spend 21,600 yen in the new store to get this set.

Lego fans in the U.S. are lucky because the requirement to get 40145 is lower in the U.S. than in Japan.

It is always fun to read posts about a new Lego store opening–here’s example one and example two. 😀
