LEGO Dimensions Receives Large Patch
Posted by Richard on September 27, 2016 at 09:23 AM CST:
I started my PS4 this morning, and it began downloading a 10.34 Gigabyte patch for LEGO® Dimensions. I assume this large patch adds the content unlocked by the latest batch of Dimensions figure packs, identified by their translucent orange stands. Forum link.
Build A Custom Flying Drone With This LEGO Compatible Kit
Posted by Richard on September 22, 2016 at 11:12 AM CST:
According to this Gizmodo article, you can now buy a Flybrix kit that that works with LEGO® Bricks to make a customized flying drone. Obviously it's not affiliated with The LEGO Company. It wont satisfy purists who have long dreamed of making a controllable flying machine using ONLY official parts, but it is a very practical design when you consider the creativity of people who build with the Mindstorms systems.

More Dimensions Sale Details

The entire stock of LEGO® Dimensions Level, Team and Fun packs I found at my local LEGO store, (not counting the starter sets required to play the game) were half price. They were all older generation packs as far as I know, and I did not see any of the newer ones on the shelf. To see the prices and figures at the LEGO Store I visited in the Crabtree Valley mall, click the following link >>

Some new pictures, a press release, and a DVD three pack for Web Of Shadows take up most of the news. Mark starts a contest that takes a bit of engineering. A replica of MoD's Evil Tahu, and some reasonably priced misprint masks show up on Bricklink.
Select LEGO Dimensions Products Half Price At LEGO Stores

My brother gave me a surprise gift of three LEGO® Dimensions fun packs when I got home today. Two of them (The Slimer and Bane fun packs) were marked down to $5.99 USD at the local LEGO® Store. He mentioned several others were on sale as well, though he couldn't recall them very well. It sounds like the older ones in particular were discounted. Considering the minifigure packs are about 4 bucks for a random character, 6 bucks for a minifigure and an accessory of choice is a great deal, even if you don't have the game. Forum link.
Mata Nui Online Astronomy

MoD reader Vahkiti directed me to this post of his on BZPower (Which sources this Reddit post) with some interesting details on the telescope in the original Mata Nui Online Game. The Red Star, observable in the game's telescope to mark dates that fulfill a prophesy, will reach it's final destination on October 18th at 4:04pm EST. Forum link.

It's been a while since I've seen the starter kits going this low. $49.99 USD for newer console versions like the PS4, wii U and Xbox One, with the older consoles like PS3 and 360 running for $39.99. If you don't mind paying full price, this newer version of the PS4 Starter Kit is advertised as including Supergirl, and a red ring accessory that gives her Red Lantern powers. Forum link.
