From the I-didn’t-see-this-coming news desk, if you’re a Google Chrome fan, you may want to check out Build. Build is an experimental product born out of a collaboration between Google Australia and LEGO Australia allowing you build with LEGO virtually right from your browser. You start with a map of the Australia, are given a plot, and build right on top of it. Build was built for Chrome but it seems to be working fine on my copy of Firefox. The selection of parts is pretty limited sticking to tried and true blocks, plates, and slopes. There’s also a door and window element to complete that house that everyone is going to build. After you’re done constructing your architectural masterpiece, you can publish it allowing you share with friends and eventually have it show up on the overhead map so that the general public can gaze at it in awe, pending moderator approval of course.

Thanks to forum member LL918 for sharing this tip from down under.
If you happen to live in or are visiting Australia, check out their Toys’R’Us stores for a decent deal on the TRU exclusive 7754 Home One Mon Calamari set. The set is on sale for $140 through Christmas Eve. This is $40 off the MSRP and $60 off the TRUP. Get one while you got the chance!
