Rokenbok To Launch Mindstorms Competitor Posted by Richard on May 17, 2016 at 09:58 PM CST:
Rokenbok is at it again, and this time they are about to launch a product comparable to LEGO® Mindstorms in function, called the Rokduino. It will have 8 sensor ports, four motor ports, and be powered by an Arduino branded board, which is well known for DIY electronics. The catch is it will be launched on Kickstarter, and only the first 50 to place their orders will get a discounted price. Forum link.

I found a few airjitzu packs on sale at Walmart for an amazing $4.99 USD each. The spinning parts in particular are compatible with Technic elements, which could lead to some great use in BIONICLE® MOCs. Form link.

Double VIP Points At LEGO Stores, March 7th - 22nd Posted by Richard on March 7, 2016 at 09:48 PM CST:
I wish I knew about this special when I ordered a Brick Bank last month. VIP cards are basically free loyalty cards that give you five bucks in store credit with TLC for every hundred you spend, so doubling that is like getting ten bucks back for every hundred spent. Forum link.
LEGO Dimensions Discounted On Amazon.com Posted by Richard on February 28, 2016 at 05:29 PM CST:
Amazon.com has the best prices I've seen yet on the LEGO® Dimensions starter kit. The price does vary based on what console(s) you own, with the most expensive being $69.94 USD for the Xbox One. That's still 10 bucks cheaper than I've previously seen for just the base kit. A number of the expansion packs are also discounted on Amazon, but I've seen better prices on many of them elsewhere, so make sure you look around.
