RC Clone Turbo Tank By Max Yang

Max Yang over at MocPages built this remote-control Clone Turbo Tank with working lights even. If you can sit through this 13 minute video, it’ll show some of the features and functions of the tank.

I don’t know, maybe it’s just me but I would have expected a CTT to move a lot faster than that, given it has the word “Turbo” in the name.

DK Publishing’s LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia

Character Encyclopedia

Got some news in email today, and among them there was a link to this page on showcasing some of DK Publishing’s newest books slated for release sometime in 2011. The most interesting book was the Character Encyclopedia which is a visual compendium of every LEGO Star Wars minifigure to date. And, like the Visual Dictionary, it will come with an exclusive minifigure. Hopefully, it will be a medal ceremony Han Solo to complement the Luke figure.

8803 Minifigures Series 3 Now Available Through Shop@Home

Well, it’s first Monday of the new year, and I guess that means it’s back to work. If you weren’t lucky enough to come across these at Toys’R’Us or at Walmart, you can now order Minifigures Series 3 directly from LEGO Shop@Home for $2.99 each. There’s a limit of 16 per customer and there’s no guarantee you’ll get a full set with your 16. But hey, that’s what trading’s for. Good luck!

New Years Day B2G1F @ Toys R Us

Toys R Us

For what it’s worth, Toys R Us is offering a Buy 2 Get 1 Free on all LEGO (excluding Star Wars and Pharaoh’s Quest) today only. This is good in-stores and online.

You can also still get the free LEGO backpack with an order of $30 or more, and get free shipping online with an order of $100 or more.

Thanks BrickUpdate for posting about this in the forum last night. Hopefully some can take advantage of the deal, though with the two hot sellers excluded and a lot of sets still sold out from the holidays, it’ll be hard.
