VIP Exclusive Deals Running October 10th-25th Posted by Richard on October 4, 2017 at 04:35 PM CST:
If your a LEGO® VIP member with a big purchase planned, you may want to wait a few days (Unless your after the 75192 Millennium Falcon™, nobody can be too sure when or if it will be available again). Purchases made between October 10-25 will get you twice the VIP points, which is normally like getting 5% of your purchase back as coupons. If you can wait a few days, it will be like getting 10% back instead. If you DID manage to buy the new Millennium Falcon during the points special, you would be getting $80.00 USD in coupons back, instead of just 40.00. Not bad for a free loyalty card program. Then there's a free gift for spending 125.00 USD or more. It appears to be a mini LEGO store with checkout counter, though I wonder if that's actually just a stand in image for the actual set?

Raspberry Pi Build-On Case Posted by Richard on September 23, 2017 at 07:50 PM CST:
The Raspberry Pi is a popular open source affordable computer. It even has third party kits to connect and drive official LEGO® motors. While you can build a case out of authentic LEGO® elements, it looks like someone has developed a case with compatible studs built on. Having built a case out of LEGO® bricks myself, I can say from experience that the slimmest design I could make was not particularly easy to use, so a form fitting case like this may be perfect for your project.

Preorder Ninjago At Gamestop, Get Minifigure And Coupon Posted by Richard on September 23, 2017 at 06:50 PM CST:
Gamestop is offering two bonuses for pre-ordering and purchasing "The Ninjago Movie Videogame". The freebies are a Loyd minifigure, and a $5.00 USD coupon on the movie itself. I would personally urge you to find a retailer not owned by GameStop or it's parent company. At least once money has mysteriously disappeared from my preorders. Recently, they made a "mistake" on my Destiny 2 reservation, refused to refund it and offered to fix it by selling me the correct version at an additional charge. Forum link.
Select Year 2 Dimensions Figures On Sale Posted by Richard on September 13, 2017 at 09:52 PM CST:
Some of the year 2 Dimensions figures are now on sale for half off. Some year one figures have a worthy discount too but have already sold out (Darnit, I needed The Ghostbusters and Midway level packs >_<). At these prices, some of the packs are worth buying just for the figures, let alone the content they unlock in the game. Forum link.
Free Ninjago Mech Dragon With 35$ Purchase Posted by Richard on September 13, 2017 at 09:41 PM CST:
To promote the upcoming Ninjago movie, a purchase of 35.00 USD or more in LEGO® Stores and the online shop will get you a green dragon mini mech. It doesn't look like a mech to me, but it has some good parts, and the set doesn't look bad for a freebie either. This deal runs until the 21st of September. Forum link.
