LEGOLand Malaysia Update

For all Malaysians (or Singaporeans, or Asians for that matter) who are waiting for LEGOLand Malaysia to open in 2012, here's an update to what's happening in the Johor state, which is where the theme park will open. We previously mentioned about this here.

It will be located in Nusajaya, which will be the new admin city instead of Johor Baru. Nusajaya is part of a larger area known as the Iskandar Project.

The construction sign is already up

This is where LEGOLand Malaysia will be developed

Here are some work on the LEGO models for LEGOLand Malaysia, made in LEGOLand California by LEGO designers there.

Malaysians should recognise this building - it's the Perdana Putra, the Prime Minister's office, located in Putrajaya, the admin city of Malaysia, as opposed to Kuala Lumpur, which is the capital of the country. This LEGO model was done by KK's team in LEGOLand California.
