BIONICLEŽ Costumes Still On The Market Posted by Richard on October 24, 2016 at 08:13 PM CST:
Believe it or not, you can still find classic BIONICLE® costumes on the market. I've added a few other LEGO® Brand costumes as well.
K'Nex Has A LEGOŽ Mindstorms Competitor Posted by Richard on October 22, 2016 at 11:37 AM CST:
The K'Nex building brand is one of the few I respect outside of The LEGO® Company. I regularly use their parts to make utility structures around my room, from tablet stands to wire management. I had no idea they made a programmable robotics system very similar in concept to the LEGO Mindstorms kits. The robot on the box even attempts to replicate one of the EV3 robot's mohawk. Forum link.
LEGOŽ Dimensions Making Good On It's Promise Posted by Richard on June 14, 2016 at 08:17 PM CST:
Unlike other NFC Figure based games, LEGO® Dimensions promised you would not need to keep buying new starter packs year to year. So far, the LEGO® Company is making good on that promise. A new batch of figures will start arriving on shelves in September, that will unlock new downloadable worlds. I'm guessing the new content will be downloaded automatically as a patch, since the online FAQ says nothing about downloading content packs manually from your game console's store page. Part of this news comes from Kotaku, and the press release they received. Forum link.
Walmart Sale Follow Up Posted by Richard on June 8, 2016 at 08:56 AM CST:
After Orohu's report of heavily discounted BIONICLE® sets at Walmart, I rushed out to try and take advantage of the deals. Despite my local store advertising a variety of discounted sets in stock, only a single Tahu and two Skull Slicers from the larger list of items were on the shelves. Despite the setback, I paid $13.88 USD for $50.00 of MOC parts. My parents (who made this short notice shopping trip possible) were not so fortunate. After waiting in line for about 10 minutes at a particular cash register to make their own purchases, the cashier abruptly turned her "open" light off and told my parents she was closed when their turn arrived. I would advise avoiding the Wake Forest store in N.C., apparently Joshua Hess is not doing a good job of managing it. Forum link.
