LEGO Sort and Store Heads

Post by peanut » Wed Jun 01, 2011 2:08 am

Has anyone seen these variations of the Sort and Store heads for sale anywhere - besides the plain smile? The tongue one is really cool. I believe the photo was taken at a toy fair a few months ago.

I've seen them, Just not those ones. The ones I saw were just plain smiley faces :)

Hmm I've only seen a plain smiley face as well, unless the thing has a back printing.

I emailed the company that makes them requesting a new clip for the top(they provide one replacement for free) and asked about these new prints. I got the default 'check the coming soon' page reply without one 'real' word added into the response template, which is the standard reply usually given about that kinda stuff but the coming soon page doesn't have them or I would not have asked. Obviously they exist and have been shown and talked about to people at the toy show. My intrigue has worn off - if they stacked it might be another story :mrgreen:

I got a nifty little idea wobbling around in my head. It's a useless idea so please-proceed reading with extreme caution.

What if the big head was only part one of the sort and store machine? It catches the biggest pieces and sends them onto the next bin which just happens to be-a big minifig torso! After the torso sorts all the medium pieces they fall into a giant pair of minifig legs. From there, the smallest pieces tumble down into a baseplate the big man stands on. I know this just doesn't seem feasible-but I like the fun factor more than making it work.

Who doesn't want a minifig that big?

You're welcome.

It's worth mentioning that there is also this product:
http://www.box4blox.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It's been around for a while, I think. I was looking into this and the sorting head, but decided to pass on them both. The box4blox I think has a larger sorting area, and it also has 4 levels, whereas the head only has 3 levels. I did read some reviews that the box4blox sometimes cracks on people, but it didn't sound that serious (especially for adult use I assume). I think it's also cheaper than the head last time I checked.

I went in with a friend and we each ordered a box4blox 2 years ago. It's the same amount to ship one as it is to ship two so we split the shipping down the middle. Ended up being a little bit over 30 dollars apiece. And what an awesome product. I'm the only one that uses it here and I've had no cracks. I did read some reviews about that but I think I also read the company is very good at customer service-much like the Lego company itself.

What I love about it is when you start to build you dump all your bricks through the top and all of the tiny bricks you want fall to the bottom. I'm going to use it to start sorting my collection by size too-but this is an awesome product.

I'm going to have to get in touch with "Lisa The Toy Whiz" at Mastermind Toys and see if they have any of the 'variant' heads, because I'd MUCH rather have one of those than just the plain ol' boring 'smiley'.

I have seen all of them at my local Walmarts but it has been some time ago now. One store even had them on clearance. I have the one with the tongue and one with the angry face.

I think the 3 non smiley faces are not being made anymore, based on what I'm seeing show up at Target (I could be wrong). All I've seen is basic smiley faces, and I noticed that the clear instructional tag on the box is different that the first run of these heads.
