Nimuno Loops: The Toy Block Tape

One of the most annoying things about crowdfunding campaigns is that I don’t hear about them until it’s too late to make a difference. Nimuno Loops is one such project. In fact, by the time I heard about it, it was on the verge of breaking USD 1,000,000. With 21 days left (at the time of writing), it’s […]

Crazy Arms is a potential new product that aims to address a major shortcoming with minifigures: the lack of posing ability with their arms. Their solution is a new system where new arm shapes can […]

A total of 44 people (including myself) got together and pledged just […]

Mechabrick – LEGO + Board Game + Mechs!

2013 seems to be the year of LEGO-related crowdfunding projects, with a number of raging successes and disappointing failures along the way. Even I’ve been involved in the mix. Just this week there’s been another contender for that crowdfunding gwop, and it’s going really strong. Mechabrick is a table-top board game based around Japanese-style mechs, […]
