Biggest LEGO Sale On Switch eShop Yet Posted by Richard on November 22, 2018 at 11:45 PM CST:
It seems like LEGO® games go on sale for the system at least twice a month, but this latest one is the largest yet. It looks like every game is on sale this time around, including the recently released Harry Potter collection. Some games are as much as 70% off, like LEGO Worlds (Though it's DLC is still full price). Forum link.

Black Friday VIP Special And Christmas Gift Posted by Richard on November 13, 2018 at 11:04 PM CST:
According to an email from The LEGO® Group, they will be offering double VIP points on all purchases from the 17th through the 18th. There is also a freebie for spending $99.00 USD and up during the same time frame, but an error in my email is preventing me from seeing what that actually is.
Rokenbok Going Out Of Business Posted by Richard on November 13, 2018 at 10:19 PM CST:
Outside of the LEGO® brand, I only respect two other building toy brands. The manufacture of one of these brands has decided to end production of their Rokenbok building system. The Rokenbok toys involved building a world around the functionality of their construction themed vehicles, mostly tasking players with scooping and moving balls called roks around their environment. Just search youtube for Rokenbok to see what it's all about, and why I'm sad to see such a fun toy leave the market.
Although Rokenbok is going out of business, its not because the company making it has gone bankrupt. Instead, they have found a new calling with making stem products for children's education under their non-profit called Kid Spark Education. Shutting down Rokenbok will allow them to focus all their efforts on this endeavor. Forum link.
November Harry Potter/VIP Specials On Shop.LEGO.com Posted by Richard on November 12, 2018 at 11:35 PM CST:
I'm not much of a Harry Potter fan, but the free mini Diagon Alley running until the 21st of this month looks pretty impressive. You have to spend at least $99 USD and up to snag this one. The Hogwarts Castle has a double VIP points special, which will get you roughly 40 bucks in store credit while it lasts. The Winter Village Fire Station also has double points, which will get you about 10 bucks store credit. Forum link.
