New BIONICLEŽ Mobile Game On Google Play Posted by Richard on January 19, 2016 at 01:06 PM CST:
Reader Vahkiti just informed me of a new BIONICLE® game on the Google Play App Store, LEGOŽ BIONICLEŽ 2, a simple fighter where the Toa seek the mask of control. Vahkiti suspects the music score is too good to have been developed solely for a mobile game, and may in fact be the soundtrack for the upcoming Netflix series. News link.
LEGO® Dimensions Sale At Toys R Us Posted by Richard on December 24, 2015 at 01:19 AM CST:
Toys R Us has the best deals I've seen for LEGO® Dimensions so far. According to an email I received, the starter kit is reduced to $79.99 and comes with a free fun pack, normally 16.99 (though $14.99msrp). The fun packs are also buy-one-get-one free... though Im personally not seeing the advertised prices when I follow the link provided. Keep watching though, if the sale is over already, it's bound to go on sale again some day.
Steam Sale: LEGOŽ Worlds, Minifigures Online, And More On Sale Posted by Richard on December 22, 2015 at 10:26 PM CST:
If Steam is your preferred platform for buying PC games, then a number of LEGO® themed games are on sale. The game I find most notable is LEGO Worlds marked down to $10.49 USD, almost a third off. If I understand correctly, the game's price will go up with certain major updates, so buying early with fewer features up front may be better than waiting for new content and paying more. Another notable game is LEGO Minifigures Online, down to $11.99 from $29.99. You can see more reduced price LEGO games here. Forum link
