BrickUniverse Dallas, November 13-15, 2015 Posted by Richard on September 10, 2015 at 03:43 PM CST:
The BrickUniverse convention held earlier this year in Raleigh was well run and fun, even though the fan-provided MOCs were in short supply. Greyson, the event's creator, has already fixed that problem for his convention coming up in November this year. I don't know if Greyson came up with this idea, but it is brilliant; provide enough creations to fill 8 feet of table space, and your ticket could be free (Details). For every 8 feet/additional 8 feet, you also get a freebie of some sort. Forum link
K-Force Dart Blasters On Shelves Posted by Richard on September 2, 2015 at 09:15 PM CST:
The K-force dart blasters are popping up on store shelves now. I found them at my local Walmart (where the prices are considerably better than K'nex's Online store). Having both an interest in K'nex and dart guns, I picked up the cheapest kit on the shelf to tinker with. For what it is, the parts that make it a dart blaster are surprisingly solid, and it works with Nerf darts. You can probably buy a good nerf gun with more shots for a better price, but the K'force can be rebuilt to suit a number of cosmetic and practical functions. Forum link
Walmart Discounts $14.99 BIONICLE® Sets Posted by Richard on August 1, 2015 at 04:08 PM CST:
Lewa, Gali, Pohatu, and the Lord Of Skull Spiders have each been discounted to $11.00 USD at my local Walmart. There were no discounts to be seen on the "delux" characters like Tahu, Kopaka, and Onua. Despite the discounts, I did not see any of the summer villain sets on Walmart's shelves. Forum link.
