I've been following the TwinLUG's Flickr stream for some time now, watching the behind the walls remodel of the LEGO Imagination Center at the Mall of America. At first, it looked like a few walls, a bunch of open space, and a few cube-like frames. From some of the pictures, I didn't know how it was all going to go together. But now it's a very sleek, simple, modern store, with a large red play area, giant LEGO models standing on top of the cube-like frames, and a (much needed) larger PaB wall.

I manage to catch a video of the models being unveiled... just amazing how big the models are.  Each model represents different historical ages... Watching the video, the robot was assembled (at one point) in the Czech Republic and ended up delaying trains to Prague because people were amazed at it.
