A Peek At BrickUniverse' Fan Zone Details Posted by Richard on March 30, 2016 at 09:44 PM CST:
I have a preliminary layout image of the fan zone for this year's BrickUniverse in Raleigh coming up in a couple days, including some details on the attendees who have brought their own creations in. The Fan Zone is the section for everyday builders like you and me (and I have a nice display going if I may say so), so it doesn't include professional builder's displays, vendors, and other exhibits at the event.

LEGO® Worlds Update 5 Is Live Posted by Richard on March 30, 2016 at 09:16 PM CST:
The early access game LEGO® Worlds just received another "major" update via the Steam platform. This update mostly covers improvements to the interface to make things more accessible to players. I haven't touched it in a while, but the interface was one of my complaints. Another nice touch is Dual Shock 4 support via USB connection (Its had Xbox controller support for a while now apparently). You can see the list of changes here. Forum link.

Retro News: March 11-20 2005 Posted by Richard on March 11, 2016 at 09:38 PM CST:
Not long after the release of BIONICLE® 2, the third movie's name has already been discovered. Details of a new parts tub show up in advertisements. Mark takes a look at comic #23, and a few rare misprints show up on eBay.
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.

Not much news makes it to the front as Mark picks up where he left off. The QFTM event continues. BIONICLE® 2 takes home a Golden Reel. A MOD reader discovers the Rahaga combiners in an odd location.
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.
