At Least They Have Their Scuba Gear Posted by Richard on July 21, 2014 at 09:37 PM CST:
In an article spotted on Gizmodo, some LEGO® elements have been washing ashore from a ship wreck years ago. Oddly enough the majority of parts found are water themed. I wonder if this can also explain the giant "No Real Than You Are" minifigure that was found on a beach elsewhere, though that raises the question on how The LEGO Company let something that poorly written slip by quality control.

A LEGOŽ Powered Tank And Your Support Posted by Richard on July 8, 2014 at 07:09 PM CST:
I'm taking a shot at LEGO® Ideas, and earlier today they approved and posted my project. Its an IR remote controlled Power Functions tank that can shoot zamor spheres and scavenge for it's own ammunition, using only two motors. Its quite a feat of engineering if I may say so. I'm hoping with our readers support it could be an off-the-shelf kit one day. Feel free to send Mask Of Destiny links to your own LEGO Ideas projects, they count as MOCs too (which I'd love to post more of!), and even better if we can help your project's chances of becoming an official set in the process!

Happy Birthday Mask Of Destiny! Posted by Richard on July 5, 2014 at 06:51 PM CST:
Mask Of Destiny turned 13 years old on July 5th, though with several family birthdays, I managed to confuse the 5th with the 7th. Lets all give a thanks to Philip who has paid for the site to operate all these years! Forum link.
