LEGOPalooza 2018 Approaches Posted by Richard on January 23, 2018 at 05:31 PM CST: LEGOPalooza 2018 is almost here. The event is free to attend at the Morehead Planetarium on January 27 at 11AM and January 28 at 1PM. While the event is small in comparison to something like Brickfair, it has some incredibly talented builders featuring a number of themes. The NCLUG crew have been talking about some Star Wars and Blactron collaborations. There are typically some excellent mecha, anime, and last but not least some BIONICLE. Forum link.
"Discovery" For PSVR On Sale Posted by Richard on January 22, 2018 at 12:08 AM CST:
The Minecraft clone for PSVR called "Discovery" is on sale for the first time that I've seen, temporarily marked down to $4.79 USD. The only review I could find praised the game's easy controls but the reviewer though it was pointless, as there are no enemies or goals. You simply explore. dig, or build. Forum link.

LiteUp Blocks Downtown Diner kit Posted by Richard on January 16, 2018 at 04:23 PM CST:
Jonathanwilson posted another liteupblocks kit on our forums recently. This time it is for the Downtown Diner. The various large windows of the Diner work very well with the custom lighting, I'd say it's the best set for custom lighting so far.
Unexpected Forum Migration Posted by Richard on January 11, 2018 at 01:40 PM CST:
It seems the current owners of Invisionfree are gradually migrating users of their old forum software to one of several other platforms. They chose not to give me direct notice so I was unprepared for the migration. UPDATE: The forums appear to be operational again, with all the content and user accounts from before the migration in tact.

TakuaE3's story has gotten so long now that I'm getting errors trying to post it all on one page. Ill be adjusting the number of chapters per page as needed once his story reaches it's conclusion. For now, chapters 11-20 are available in this section. You can also find TakuaE3's forum topic for the story here, where the chapters are broken up by post.

Land Of The Lost, By TakuaE3, Chapters 1-10 Posted by Richard on December 28, 2017 at 11:04 PM CST:
TakuaE3, the very same who supported us with news tips more than 10 years ago, has returned with a story he wrote based on the alternate reality featured in the book "Time Trap". He now has 16 chapters written with more on the way. You can see the story on our main page here. If you prefer to read the story in smaller chunks, then his forum topic may be easier to navigate back to later.

Featured above is Ghidora's Kuldetrist (Meaning "Cold Sad" in Danish, he tells me). Oddly he was the result of an attempt to build a samurai Toa design. You can see Kuldetrist's album here.
