LEGO Friends in Space Challenge

There isn’t a whole lot of time left to participate, but this is a neat challenge with great prizes!  ReBrick is hosting a challenge to build a space-themed LEGO Friends model.  You can read the guidelines here.  You do have to be 16 years or older and have a ReBrick account.  I wish I had more time to work on this, but I have a very busy week ahead.  See if it can inspire you!

Read The Brick Collectors Magazine on Your iPad!

imagesDid you know that you can buy & read all issues of The Brick Collectors Magazine using the MagCloud app on your iPad for just $0.99 an issue?  The app is a free download.  Inside the app you can search for The Brick Collectors Magazine.  Each digital edition is available for $0.99, or you can purchase a print copy for $7.00 and get the digital edition free.

You will need a MagCloud account to purchase the magazine through the app.  MagCloud also has a wide-range of other publications you can browse, too.  I’ve loaded the issues onto my iPad so my kids can browse through them when they want to.

Exclusive SDCC Unikitty

I did something totally irrational.  I paid WAY too much for a single minifig.

photoIt really bothers me that there are exclusive minifigures that you can only get by attending Comic Con.  We live too far away to ever make it there, and our only option to get some of these cool LEGO exclusives is to fall prey to the sharks on eBay who resell them at ridiculous prices.  In this case, I just couldn’t resist.  Cheerykitty and Cutesykitty are AWESOME.  I paid a decent price (considering how ridiculous the prices are) and this little gal just makes me smile when I look at her.

Now, are my kids allowed to play with her or not … :)
