A Fresh New Perspective.

Post by Toys N Bricks » Mon Mar 31, 2014 9:19 pm

Update: April Fools.



We believe that by providing a diversity of news on different building blocks, it would benefit the community as a whole. LEGO does not have many brands and many of them are quite similar. Many of these brands are also owned by the biggest toy companies in the world (Mega Bloks by Mattel and KRE-O by Hasbro) so there's no reason why we should only report news on LEGO. There's different price margins for different brands. For higher quality products, you can go for Mega Bloks or KRE-O. But if your on a tight budget, you can go for Best Lock.

All of the bricks and pieces are compatible with each other and they all have very similar products such as Best Lock's 33061 Holiday Cottage set vs LEGO's 4996 Creator Beach House. Even better, all of the Best Lock's products are based on set number of pieces (50, 80, 110, 160, 170,240, 330, 500, 750, 1000) making price comparison and set sizes even easier. LEGO has been around for a long time so its now time for a fresh new perspective in the building blocks industry. By providing news on other building block brands, we would be able to provide you with news from top Mega Bloks and KRE-O licenses like Hot Wheels, Barbie, Halo, Transformers and G.I. Joe. There will be a brand and a price range that everyone would like.

Primary Focus: Mega Bloks & KRE-O
Secondary Focus: K'nex, Best Lock and other brands

We understand that you may have a difficult time transitioning from this. However, we are confident that your views will change once our full transition has been completed. We expect full transition to be completed by the end of this month. Your patience is much appreciated in this matter.

Heh ... good one!

Are those beach house imposter sets actually real??? Unbelievable how close they are to the LEGO Beach House.

Finally, I can let my Best Lock's out of the closet with no shame!

Of course they might have dissolved while they were in there.

Adult Fans of Megablok and adult Fans of Kreo - are finally coming out of the closet! :-)

Best Lock needs to do a product recall of their entire Stargate 1 sets so they can be destroyed by a Goa'uld staff weapon. ;-)

Good one! And the entire design team needs to be fed to the Wraith.

Ha, almost got me.

I actually thought it might be a good idea. I mean, not everyone has the cash to spend on the rising costs of Lego sets. I still remember the big bucket of Tyco blocks my parents got me since they couldn't afford to keep getting me Lego sets when I was little. Sure, they weren't Lego, but I was happy to add to my collection to keep building new things.

So I've heard. I'm still tempted to buy one and find out.

Saying "AFOK" all the time might get you in trouble.

I'm glad to hear the new direction the site is taking, hopefully it'll increase readership. I always thought that megabloks produced a superior product in any case.

I actually like Mega Bloks. I have had more quality problems with LEGO sets than MB sets recently. Grip on pieces is just terrible these days.
Sure, MB make some dreck sets, but so does LEGO. (Iron Man 3 sets, anyone?)
Minifigs are basically LEGO's main point of differentiation now, along with the design quality on the best LEGO sets, which still sets that standard... a standard that many of LEGO's own sets fall far short of, however.

Ooups. I just donated my best lock set recently, and I should also grap all those Transformer sets when it were so cheap at Christmas.

How refreshing! The timing is perfect as I also have decided to read & post on other sites. Just today I discovered my new favorite sites: Landscaping with LEGO & The Joy of Mega Blocks.
