    A Fresh New Perspective.

    Update: April Fools.

    Mega Bloks and KRE-O Logo

    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.
