Xanxost keeps us updated on the Bionicle Story, and I show you how to bake with BIONICLE® parts. **Don't eat BIONICLE parts. Don't eat LEGO® Parts. Don't Eat anything made of plastic. You would think this would be unnecessary to add but there are reasons TLG won't do food promos anymore.
REMINDER: SAVE YOU VIP POINTS IF YOUR GOING TO LEGOLAND Posted by Richard on November 26, 2019 at 09:51 AM CST:
You may be tempted to dump your LEGO® VIP points earned this holiday season back into more LEGO sets. If you know for sure that you are making a trip to LEGOLAND resorts or any other LEGO branded activity center, presuming your points don't expire before then you will want to SAVE THEM. Unless they have adjusted the prices since I wrote this article, you effectively triple the value of your points when using them to buy tickets instead of sets. Forum link
LEGO Pre Black Friday Sale Posted by Richard on November 25, 2019 at 09:38 AM CST:
Until the end of the 28th, LEGO®'s Shop At Home site is taking 30% off a small selection of sets. If you happen to want anything on this list, it beats their usual double VIP points sale, and I imagine you still get 5% back in points to top it all off. Forum link.

Minecraft Earth In Early Access Posted by Richard on November 15, 2019 at 06:10 PM CST:
Minecraft's Augmented Reality game "Minecraft Earth" is not quite ready for worldwide launch, but they have recently expanded it out into early access for some areas. It is currently available for both IOS and Android, although some android users like myself are getting a "not available in your country" glitch despite being in one of the early access areas.

Huge LEGO Game Sale On Playstation Network Posted by Richard on November 13, 2019 at 09:40 PM CST:
If the Playstation 4 is your console of choice, most LEGO® themed games are currently on sale for the platform. The vast majority are marked down to 70%, which is the cheapest I've ever seen for many of the tittles. LEGO Worlds for example rarely dips down below 15 bucks USD, and is currently just a bit short of 10 dollars.
LEGO Minifigure Hidden In Bulb Boy Posted by Richard on November 8, 2019 at 10:32 AM CST:
As a result of the strange ecosystem for the Nintendo Switch's eshop, the somewhat disturbing adventure game Bulb Boy was recently marked down to the low price of .49 cents USD. While I spotted several things that may have been LEGO® references, there can be no mistaking the LEGO Minifigure in one of the game's medicine cabinets. Forum link.
