Want To Help Someone Complete A BIONICLEŽ Collection? Posted by Richard on August 27, 2014 at 10:37 AM CST:
You may already be aware of Mask Collector's attempts to get the first truly complete BIONICLE® collection, perhaps you have one of the last 10 pieces he needs for his collection and would rather have some cash or another rare collectible instead?
IdentiToy Base Plate And Application Posted by Richard on August 23, 2014 at 11:19 PM CST: IdentiToy has released what appears to be a LEGO® brick compatible base plate intended to fit over an ipad/android screen to help create environments for your minifigures. The application for ios and android is free, so you can check compatibility with your tablet's resolution beforehand(which is nice for android users in particular), but the baseplate is $9.99 as an introductory price. I just hope you'll put a good screen protector on your tablet first. Forum link.
Vita Version Of Terraria Free For PSPlus Members Posted by Richard on June 18, 2014 at 12:37 PM CST:
If you have an active Playstation Plus membership and a PSVita console, you can now download and play Terraria for free. Terraria is a 2D mine/build game with an emphasis on gear, ingredient hunting and combat, that plays a bit like a Metroid or Castlevania game. It may not be up to date compared the the PC version(yet), but the console controls give it a different feel that PC players might appreciate, or give you a taste of the PC version (which I recommend anyone with a compatible PC to own XP) for those who don't have it yet.

The LEGOŽ Movie Video Game Console Bundle Posted by Richard on June 10, 2014 at 08:26 AM CST:
To my knowledge this is the first time a LEGO® branded video game has been sold as an official console bundle. The console is basicly a PSVita turned into a micro console, so it may not be a definitive version of the game. Considering the standalone device is $99.99 while it's Dual Shock3 controller is $39.99, the $139.99 bundle with the two together and the digital download game voucher, 8gb memory card and hdmi cable, I don't see how anyone inclined to buy the console can resist.

SmileMakers Coupons Posted by Richard on June 1, 2014 at 10:32 PM CST:
Vicki Hudzik wanted to pass on a link to their coupon page in case you happened to be in the market for some stickers and party supplies. As far as LEGO® stuff goes, it's been a long time since SmileMakers had any BIONICLE® Stickers, but If you like LEGO Star Wars your in luck. Forum link.
A More Functional Power Brick Posted by Richard on February 28, 2014 at 12:59 AM CST:
It was bound to happen, with everyone making docks for their devices out of LEGO® bricks, it only makes sense that someone would mold a platform for LEGO&bricks around a battery. You could of course build a box around one you already own but this streamlined buildable battery I saw on CNET is a good way to go if you don't have a battery already. I'm not certain its officially licensed, the power brick itself lacks the LEGO logo on it's studs but the bricks it comes with appear to be official. The shopping page appears to have honored The LEGO Company's fair use guidelines and even uses the logo, though not on the package of the power brick itself as far as I can see. Forum link.
