New Liteup Block Kits, Technic Compatible LEDs Posted by Richard on July 23, 2017 at 12:50 PM CST:
Jonathanwilson on our forums has stopped by a couple times lately to show off some lighting kits. The first was the Hotel Corner lighting kit, and the second (which I find more interesting) is the kit for the Mercedes-Benz Arocs. The second kit is designed to work with technic elements, which is typically better for BIONICLE® MOCs. Another notable improvement is the addition of power cables for the lights which can connect to newer LEGO power functions battery boxes.
LEGO Rebrick SuperBots Contest Posted by Richard on July 6, 2017 at 10:38 PM CST:
The LEGO Company is hosting a SuperBots contest via Rebrick. I think they are looking primarily for moving creations powered by Mindstorms products, though the contest rules do not seem to exclude anything in particular so long as it's a robot or robot themed. Forum link.
The Works Of Spencer Rollins Posted by Richard on May 21, 2017 at 09:43 PM CST:
A few years back I met a very talented young builder at Brick Magic, and have since seen him at several LEGO® events. He excels in a number of LEGO themes including BIONICLE®, and other forms of building like Minecraft. You may have already seen some of his creations in the Brick Universe photos I posted earlier. Tonight I have the privilege of posting his personal Flicker albums. Forum link.

LEGO Palooza This Weekend! Posted by Richard on April 27, 2017 at 06:28 PM CST:
Despite a setback earlier this year, LEGO® Palooza has been rescheduled to the 29th and 30th of April, which is this weekend! If you want to put your stuff on display at the event however, try to get into contact with NCLUG ASAP, as they may have extra space for displays this year. There is no charge to attend or display at this event. Forum link.
