BIONICLEŽ Digital Cameras On Sale At Newegg
Posted by Richard on October 25, 2016 at 04:04 PM CST:
Newegg, which specializes in computer parts, has an old BIONICLE® themed digital camera Featuring Tuma for $10.00 USD. Even back then it probably wasn't a good camera, but if that isn't cheap enough to buy out of sheer novelty, maybe you would be interested in the exact same camera featuring Vorox on it for only $4.99?

BIONICLEŽ Costumes Still On The Market

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

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.
Build A Custom Flying Drone With This LEGOŽ Compatible Kit
Posted by Richard on September 22, 2016 at 11:12 AM CST:
According to this Gizmodo article, you can now buy a Flybrix kit that that works with LEGO® Bricks to make a customized flying drone. Obviously it's not affiliated with The LEGO Company. It wont satisfy purists who have long dreamed of making a controllable flying machine using ONLY official parts, but it is a very practical design when you consider the creativity of people who build with the Mindstorms systems.

Unitors Going Into Early Retirement, On Sale
Posted by Richard on June 24, 2016 at 10:29 AM CST:
If you got to LEGO® Shop@Home, it appears everything but the most recent Summer sets are listed as "Retiring Soon" and on sale. The only exception is Mask Maker Vs Skull Grinder. You might still find better, albeit scarce deals, at your local Walmart. Otherwise, this may be your last chance to grab some of these sets. 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.
