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 BIONICLEŽ 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.
Summer BIONICLEŽ Sets Arriving Tomorrow Posted by Richard on July 31, 2015 at 10:38 PM CST:
Only a few short hours to go, at least for those of us in the United States. Keep watching! Hopefully I'm not going to be getting looks again for buying BIONICLE® sets while everyone else is lined up early for new Star Wars stuff. Forum Link.
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.
