Lesovikk proves to be a cool set, if you can go through all the trouble to complete him.

Get A Buildable Ring With LEGO Friends Purchase Posted by Richard on September 4, 2018 at 11:28 PM CST:
If you spend over $25.00 USD on The LEGO® Company's Friends theme, you can get a buildable ring set. This deal runs out on September 20th. I've seen a few wearable MOCs over the years, so a ring seems like a great idea. Of course I have to wonder if it comes in more colors than teal and purple, and what kind of clutch power the stud has. It would be neat to see an armored glove using these as a base. Forum link.

LEGO Game Sale On Switch And PS4 Posted by Richard on August 23, 2018 at 09:44 PM CST:
Looks like both the Switch and PS4 consoles are running a sale on most if not all LEGO® tittles, including the more recent "LEGO The Incredibles". The PS4 seems to have a better selection and price compared to the switch, not to mention they probably run better on Sony's hardware. If portability is more important than performance though, Nintendo has you covered, albeit for a bit more cash. Forum link.
Xiaomi Makes A Cool Looking Mindstorms Rip-Off Posted by Richard on August 21, 2018 at 12:00 AM CST:
I have to give Xiaomi credit, while most of the parts are clearly a rip off of The LEGO® Company's technic elements, they really know how to make a cool looking robot. If I'm not mistaken, they even went through the trouble of using U joints and some axles to animate the machine guns as the robot rolls around. I can't help but think this is an impressive LEGO creation, even if the parts are not official. Forum link.

Pictures From NCLUG July 2018 Meeting Posted by Richard on August 14, 2018 at 07:13 PM CST:
The North Carolina LEGO Users Group held a meeting last month, and as usual, they brought some of their creations with them to show off. I was fortunate enough to have a late shift at work so I could attend and photograph the creations. I've left commentary on some of the creations in the full story.
Free Unikitty Castle Room With Unikitty Purchases Over $25 Posted by Richard on August 10, 2018 at 07:47 PM CST:
Running until August 12th, it looks like you can grab a free Unikitty Castle Room by spending $25 USD or more on Unikitty LEGO® sets. The actual castle room seems to be a brick built couch, terrarium/pet, and a Unikitty figure in a cardboard cutout that folds out from the packaging the parts come in. It also comes with some stickers. I can't say it's particularly temping to me but it's free if you happen to need parts in those colors, and I won't begrudge you for liking Dr Fox's lab. Forum link.
