Walmart Sale Follow Up
Posted by Richard on June 8, 2016 at 08:56 AM CST:
After Orohu's report of heavily discounted BIONICLE® sets at Walmart, I rushed out to try and take advantage of the deals. Despite my local store advertising a variety of discounted sets in stock, only a single Tahu and two Skull Slicers from the larger list of items were on the shelves. Despite the setback, I paid $13.88 USD for $50.00 of MOC parts. My parents (who made this short notice shopping trip possible) were not so fortunate. After waiting in line for about 10 minutes at a particular cash register to make their own purchases, the cashier abruptly turned her "open" light off and told my parents she was closed when their turn arrived. I would advise avoiding the Wake Forest store in N.C., apparently Joshua Hess is not doing a good job of managing it. Forum link.
BIONICLE® Journey To One Coming To Bluray
Posted by Richard on June 8, 2016 at 08:40 AM CST:
It sounds like the Netflix exclusive BIONICLE® miniseries "Journey to One" will be coming to Blu-Ray disc later this year, including all four episodes on one disc. There is some speculation that it will be called "Volume One", implying another batch of episodes may be in the works. My thanks goes to Vahkiti for the news. Forum link.
Huge Discounts At Select Walmart Stores

Orohu reports his local Walmart had the Unitor Kopaka pack marked down to $5.00 USD, as well as a Pohatu for only $4.00. He informs me you can search your local Walmart with your zip code, and then search the "My Local Store" option for sales prices. With his help, I identified that my local store also had similar deals on specific characters, but not all of them. Forum link.

More RokDuino Details, Rokenbok Discounts Via Kickstarter
Posted by Richard on May 31, 2016 at 09:22 PM CST:
Construction toy company Rokenbok has begun it's kickstarter campaign for it's Rokduino Programmable Robotics platform. The Rokduino will cost 300.00 USD if it makes it to retail, and early buyers via kickstarter can grab one of 200 available units at a $100.00 discount. If your not much of a programmer, their purely remote controlled Maker ROK-Bot kit is available for only $109.00 (Normally 199.99 USD) via their kickstarter. Dollar for dollar, I think the LEGO® EV3 system is a much more powerful tool, but the Rokduino boasts open source electronics and 3D printing support from it's creators. Forum link.
