FAQS I've composed from questions and comments that have been raised here:
* JOB APPLICANTS ONLY? Please do not apply if you do not want a REAL job NOW. It's a real job. Not a contest or a competition for a prize. You will win a job and have to give your 2 weeks notice at your current job or get yourself off unemployment and clock in at a Model Shop in Carlsbad in July 2009. Sweet!
** WHO ARE WE? We are part of the MERLIN ENTERTAINMENT GROUP just like LEGOLAND CA, we are affiliated in every sort of way and they are our best friends (and favorite customers since we make alot of the LEGO models that go into the LLC Theme Park!). However, we are part of The Merlin Studios where the creative developments in our company happen. Pretty neat stuff.
*** WHERE ARE YOU? We report to a large, professional worshop about 2 miles away from LEGOLAND CA. This is NOT a job at LEGOLAND CA Model Shop. For those that have emailed me about that, we are a project based team that is part of the same company and also in Carlsbad - but any experience or preconcieved notions based upon knowledge of such experiences or viewing through the lovely glass window in Miniland USA of LEGOLAND Parks Model Shop may be incorrect as we do not support the Park, Grounds or Mainetance Dept.
**** PAID TO PLAY? We aren't just PAID TO PLAY... hahaha! We are a pretty hard-working, tightly knit team that has the best collection of LEGO - EVER and a pretty fantastic portfolio of artwork under our belts in our 2 years of production! We specialize in making LEGO Minilands, but will pretty much build anything out of LEGO if our company has the budget!!! You can see all the proof here on Brick Star.
***** PR/MARKETING/PRESS/COMMERICIAL Inquiries: No we do not do commercial work - AND talk to LEGOLAND CA's Marketing Dept.
****** LEGOLAND MALAYSIA? If you live closer to Malaysia than to California, then you should apply for a job, there, instead, and save money on travel. We are building LEGOLAND Malaysia there right now and they will also be opening a large LEGO Modelbuilding Shop to create all the LEGO sculptures and scale model that will decorate that theme park. Far out, huh?!?!
