Order Bulk Parts With The LEGOŽ LUGBULK Program Posted by Richard on July 24, 2015 at 09:27 PM CST:
I had the opportunity to listen to Kevin Hinkle talk about a few interesting programs at Brick Universe back in March. I've been trying to track down links to this information, and finally dug up Hinkle's business card to ask him where it was. Its a little too minifigure shaped to fit most conventional wallets, so I managed to misplace it. One of those programs is the LUGBULK, which gives LEGO® User Groups one chance a year to submit bulk orders at a discount. It may be worth your time to check out the local LUGs to join and see if you can participate. Here's a PDF link containing details of the program. Forum link.
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.
