My LEGO Ideas Project: RC Ball Launcher Tank
Posted by Richard on September 22, 2015 at 03:30 PM CST:
If you've seen my yellow ball launcher tank already, then there's nothing really new to see, I've just tweaked it a bit to get it ready for LEGO Ideas. When I had the tanks on display at Brick Universe, I kept getting asked where they can be bought, how to build them, etc. If you fall into that category, then now is your chance to lend me the support necessary to make that happen. Thank you for your consideration and support! Forum link.
Chance To Win Walle Or Big Bang Theory For Survey Completion
Posted by Richard on September 22, 2015 at 01:01 PM CST:
If you haven't checked out LEGO® Ideas lately, they are asking visitors to complete a survey that enters you for a chance to win a Disney "Walle" or "Big Bang Theory" set. If your not familiar with LEGO Ideas, maybe you know it by it's former name, LEGO CUUSOO. The website allows you to submit a personal creation, where after moderation and approval, you can attempt to gather 10,000 supporters for your project. If you reach that goal, The LEGO Company will officially consider it for production. Forum link.

Save for a WMKK auction, every article in this week's retro news is related to the books and movies. Both movies receive praise and continue to receive awards. A new novel collection arrives, packing in a Poisoned Hau Nuva. Mark reviews Voyage Of Fear, giving it his approval while trying not to spoil too much.
BrickUniverse Returns To Raleigh April 1-3 2016

Not to be confused with the Dallas BU expo, we already have dates for next year's BrickUniverse. If you attend the full AFOL/TFOL event, and not just the public days, it runs April 1st-3rd. Bring enough stuff to put on display and you could pay nothing for your tickets. Cant make it to the full event? You can buy tickets for one of the two public days on the 2nd and 3rd. Forum link.
In remembrance

It is an unfortunate truth that there are people in this world who will try to hurt us. Whether they were raised to believe we are evil and need to be destroyed, or trying to accomplish something selfish without concern for others, we need to stay strong and continue to bring as much good into this world as we can.
BrickUniverse Dallas, November 13-15, 2015

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

A number of updates reach, particularly new answers to the Ask Greg section (In fact, one question Greg answered was one I personally submitted). The Mask Of Light movie also takes home two prizes. The Chicago International Toy And Game Fair also takes place.
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
