MOCs: Terraria Molten Armor Posted by Richard on July 27, 2019 at 09:51 PM CST:
When the makers of Terraria hosted their "Dont Throw Out My LEGOs" contest, I wanted to give it a shot. This MOC is the result. It features a terrarian wearing the molten armor set, molten pickaxe, flame wings, and a grappling hook. Just click the thumbnails for the high resolution pictures. The middle picture is using a light brick in an attempt to give the armor it's trademark glow. Forum link.
LEGO VIP Now Offers More Rewards For Your Points Posted by Richard on July 27, 2019 at 05:43 PM CST:
A while back The LEGO® Group informed us that there would be changes to their rewards program. A couple days ago I made my first purchase since the change and found some interesting changes. The biggest change makes it just a bit harder to use your points, but gives you more reward options.

Terraria; Don't Throw Out My LEGOs Event Posted by Richard on July 13, 2019 at 12:05 AM CST:
Terraria is a great building game (Think Metroid Combined with Minecraft) so it makes sense that they would hold a LEGO® themed building contest on their discord channel. This is part of their 8th anniversary celebration and launch on the Nintendo Switch console. The contest will take place on the 14th, which is only a day away, and tasks contestants with building anything from the game on a 3D scale. They specifically state "Only LEGOs, no other props".

Dragon Quest Builders 2 Out Today Posted by Richard on July 12, 2019 at 12:24 AM CST:
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is out today. I found the first one interesting, and wouldn't call it a Minecraft clone so much as an RPG with voxel building elements, but I found it's long term building mode to be a bit lacking. I don't know much about what the sequel offers over the first, other than multiplayer. The Nintendo eshop offers a demo to give you an idea of what to expect though. It is compatible with Nintendo's game coupon program, so you may want to check that out for a potential 10 dollar discount on the game. Forum link.
MOCs: Ghidora's All Transparent Toa Posted by Richard on July 9, 2019 at 09:48 PM CST:
I've wanted to make an all transparent MOC for some time but never could work one out. Ghidora on the other hand made this creation as an experiment, and was kind enough to upload some photos for us before scraping it. On a side note, look carefully at the mask and the hands. Though they are official parts, Ghidora tells me he experimented with dying the pieces. I can't argue with the results. Forum link.

18 Years And Counting Posted by Richard on July 5, 2019 at 09:48 PM CST:
Today marks Mask Of Destiny's 18th anniversary. BIONICLE® may have come and gone twice, but it's community keeps going. From fan fictions, artwork, and custom creations, to rebuilding the legendary PC game long after The LEGO® Group gave up on it. Thank you for giving us a reason to keep going. Forum link.
