Unlicensed LEGOŽ Compatible Building Plates For Around The House Posted by Richard on June 23, 2015 at 06:58 PM CST:
If you don't mind that these Build-On products are not official LEGO® merchandise, they may be an interesting way to extend your creativity to other parts of the house. A Switch Cover which I can see as being especially useful. Imagine putting key ring hooks on that. These Book Ends give you more space to work with, and then theres This Horrible Mug which is only good for the shear novelty of being able to turn it into a tank you can drink from. Theres also a Coaster Set which I hope is at least designed not to scratch the table or something. Forum linkUpdate: If the links didn't work before they should now.

Now might be the time to start looking out for the next batch of BIONICLE® sets. I have not seen them online or in stores yet, but I'm guessing since we are halfway through the year we might see them pop up any day now. If you spot them online or in your local stores, be sure to to let us know!
LEGOŽ Dimensions Will Be Future Proof Posted by Richard on May 20, 2015 at 09:04 AM CST:
LEGO® Dimensions is a game that communicates with NFC tagged figures. Similar games like Disney infinity and Skylanders have made their new tittles backwards compatible with their older figures. It looks like LEGO Dimensions is going to be fowards-compatible with theirs.
Rent LEGOŽ Sets With Pley Posted by Richard on May 5, 2015 at 09:42 PM CST:
I don't even know where to begin asking questions with this one, a service called Pley allows you to rent LEGO® sets. Looking around on their site, they seem to have thought of most problems that you'd expect, but I cant help but think of how many different things can go wrong. If you can get past the potential problems of subscribing to this for your children (Or yourself XP) it seems like it could be a great deal for some. Forum link
AAHHG! Posted by Richard on April 6, 2015 at 08:07 PM CST:
If you are a LEGO® VIP member, a very interesting piece of marketing is likely on its way to you, if not already in your hands. I wont spoil the surprise for you, unless you hate jump scares, in which case you might want to click the link at the end of the post so you don't fall victim for it like I did.
The Jokes On Them if Someone Buys It Posted by Richard on April 1, 2015 at 12:35 PM CST:
I received an email that Rokenbok, another favorite building system of mine, is now selling gold colored vehicles as a limited time item. Upon clicking the link, expecting to find gold colored plastic vehicles, I discovered they were described as actual solid gold vehicles, priced at $5,000.000 USD each. They make it clear its an April Fools gag by this point, but if you were inclined, it appears you could actually buy it because they went so far as to officially list it in their store's programming as an authentically purchasable item. Well played sirs. I wonder what would happen if someone actually ordered one? Forum link
