Free Keychain Of Choice With 35 Dollar Purchase Posted by Richard on January 6, 2020 at 09:19 PM CST:
Running until the 12th of December, The LEGO® Group is giving you your choice of either a Purple (YAY!) or Blue (boo.) keychain on a purchase of $35.00 USD or more. You can make the right choice and use the code PRPL at checkout to get the purple keychain. If for some reason you want the blue keychain, the code for that is BLUE, though I can't imagine why when its only halfway to being purple. Forum link.

Base Ace Building Plates Posted by Richard on December 11, 2019 at 10:06 PM CST:
Google's recommendations sent me this Brickset article about Brian Stickley's Base Ace building system. He developed the system to help keep his son's creations in tact during play. While I tend not to mix brands of building toys in my own creations, I have to admit that Base Ace looks like a lot of fun to work with. EDIT: Removed the Brickset link because of a pop up pretending to be my ISP. Base Ace has a facebook page here if you want to see the system. Forum link.
