Jell-O Play Construction Kits Posted by Richard on July 27, 2018 at 04:56 PM CST: As seen on Gizmodo, The Jell-O food brand has released molds that resemble the classic LEGO® Brick so you can build before you eat. It sounds like a great idea to me provided parents also use this opportunity to teach food safety. The LEGO Company however, has long since distanced themselves from food brands, having learned that associating edible things to a toy with small parts is a bad idea. I can't help but think someone at The LEGO Group has issued them a warning, if not a lawsuit. Forum link

Toa Lesovikk issues become apparent and it's only the beginning. We take a look at Karzahni, Gadunka, and the Toa Terrain Crawler. BIONICLE The Horse is not doing so good, while BIONICLE® for Flip Phones gets high ratings.

LEGO The Incredibles And More On Sale (Nintendo Switch) Posted by Richard on July 19, 2018 at 01:17 PM CST:
If The Nintendo Switch is your console of choice, then "LEGO® The Incredibles" is on sale for the first time at $41.99 USD, 30% off. A number of other LEGO branded games are half off on the console, like LEGO Worlds, The Ninjago Movie game, Marvel Super Heroes 2, and LEGO City Undercover. L.C. Undercover has horrendous loading times so I'd advise against that and researching other Switch ports before buying. If your PC is your game machine of choice, LEGO The Incredibles is not discounted, but is still cheaper than the Switch version at only $39.99. Forum link.
