First Look At New Hero FactoryŽ Figures Posted by Richard on November 18, 2013 at 12:06 PM CST: As reported on BZPower's website, some of next year's Hero Factory sets can be seen among additions to a number of themes. Instead of full sized Hero models, the baggisters contain a minifigure Hero, one or more four legged creatures, and either a mech for the mini hero to pilot or a giant beast to act as a proper opponent to the mechs. The mechs themselves have containment units that are probably for the safe capture of the smaller creatures, which bear a resemblance to the miniature jump-attack visorak from BIONICLE®'s playset days.

Rokenbok Sale, $209.98 USD Kit For $129.99 Posted by Richard on August 22, 2013 at 09:05 PM CST:
For those of you who don't limit your building collection to LEGO® products, Rokenbok is having the first decent sale I've seen from them in a while. Rokenbok is a construction themed toy line, with expensive (but brilliant) RC vehicles that each have a functional purpose. I do wish they had a multivehicle set on sale, but free shipping and an $80.00 set for free with the purchase of a ROK Works Construction & Action Set is not bad. Forum link.
Legends of Chima Factory Posted by Richard on May 28, 2013 at 04:22 PM CST:
I was surprised to see Hero Factory style LEGO® Chima characters on my run to grab a Jet Rocka. They run about 14.99 USD each, but seem to have have more parts than your average Hero Factory sets to justify the extra expense. They are all available on the LEGO Shop At Home page. You can see links to each in the full report. Forum link.
Chance Of Free CHIMA Set With LEGOŽ S@H Purchase Posted by Richard on May 22, 2013 at 10:35 PM CST:
I bought some gifts and MOCing parts on LEGO® Shop @ Home the other day, and it arrived with one of these and a flyer thanking me for my purchase and explaining it was a free product trial, presumably to try building interest in the new theme. I have no idea if I just got lucky, but this was an expensive purchase so I suspect that may have had something to do with it. Forum link.
Platinum Mask Of Light On eBay Posted by Richard on February 24, 2013 at 01:45 PM CST:
Now that it's on eBay I gues its fair game to post on our news, the seller stopped by our forum a while back and told us he had aquired the mask. Seen here on eBay, he's very particular about the conditions of the purchase, and is asking $29,000.00 USD for it. Even if you have that kind of cash around, I would be very cautious about the purchase.
European Misprints Sell For $84.00 USD Posted by Richard on February 6, 2013 at 10:25 PM CST:
The masks listed on ebay last week sold today for a total of $84.00 USD, not counting shipping. It wasnt until late last night that they jumped to the thirty dollar range. At about 3 minutes remaining the original bidder was outdone at the 60 range, only for him to make a comeback with 30 seconds remaining...I think I've found a new spectator sport O_O Forum link.
