Iconic Minneapolis Night Club Reimagined in LEGO by Brickmania
Brickmania has worked with downtown Minneapolis nightclub First Avenue to design a scale model of the famous venue made from LEGO® parts. The model was designed by Brickmania founder, Daniel Siskind and includes 98 new authentic LEGO® parts, custom printed name tiles and a high-quality vinyl sticker sheet, including the iconic gold “Prince” star, to add detail to the model. Many Brickmania employees have spent nights enjoying some of their favorite musical acts and events at First Avenue, and we are excited to create a model of this iconic venue.
This building kit is currently only available by preorder from First Avenue. You can order it here: http://first-avenue.com/buy/catalog/product/brickmania The models are expected to start shipping Mid-November.
