This free-to-play game will be released in 2016, and will feature several popular LEGO themes, including LEGO Ninjago.
The game will be released in 2016 in Asia, but will presumably be available to an international audience later.

One example of fake LEGO. “Bele” making people think they are buying real Ninjago set.
Now, when I say fake, I do not mean Mega Blocks, K’Nex, Tente, or any other legitimate brand. I mean those who make sets that seem like actual LEGO. The ones who want you to think it is REAL LEGO, when it isn’t!
Recently, I had been tricked into buying a similar set, though I Should have known better! Which is why I am making this post. So you won’t get confused when you’re out buying LEGO.
Always look for the LEGO logo, If the box doesn’t have it. THEN IT IS NOT LEGO! So if you are buying Online, make sure they have a picture where you can see it, and that the pictures aren’t copied from somewhere.
Also, check the Box to see if it looks like a sloppy copy of a LEGO set, LEGO always has very good quality and if the pictures looks slanted then it might be a fake. If the package is transparent, check out the bricks. Sometime fake Minifig faces are too high, at an angle, or even upside down!

LEGO encourages anyone who sees a fake LEGO list page on eBay & Amazon to contact them and report the link to them and they will take action in order to remove it.
Make sure everyone who buys LEGO for you or themselves knows about the possibility of Fakes, with the Internet it makes it a lot easier to make a fake. and to steal your money!

LEGO has recently announced a new theme. If you’re a fan of LEGO Friends, or of the LEGO Friends-themed characters, then this is for you. LEGO Elves. That’s right, girls (and guys, I guess, if they are in to this kind of thing) now have a
second third LEGO line. Breaking away from the evergreen land of Heatlake City, comes a new and magical world full of Unicorns, elves, and strange portals. You can check out the teaser video below:
Here is my guess of what the storyline is, just from watching this video:
A girl steps through a portal from her home into the land of Elves, and there are four or five keys, each have to do with some element (like fire, water, wind, plants, etc.). Once they find those keys, they can re-open the portal and let the girl go back home. Each main character also has to do with an element. Hence the fire dress and the horticulturist boy.
If you are doing an epic facepalm right now, then please don’t hurt yourself. And look on the bright side, if you’re no interested in this theme, there are going to be some cool new hair-pieces created for it. I for one think this is a great thing. LEGO is not only making toys for boys now, they are branching out. I don’t like the Mini-dolls, but I think that LEGO should spread imagination as much as possible, and this is a great way to do it.
Set your calendars, everyone! It’s soon to be International Ninja Day! Oh wait, that’s already passed. That was December 5th… But there is a ninja related announcement that you might want to remember!
In Spring 2015, LEGO and TT Games will be releasing a new Ninjago themed videogame. It is called “LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin“. This game will join the list of Ninjago themed mobile games. First, if you’ll remember, was LEGO Battles: Ninjago (also known as LEGO Ninjago: The Videogame), which was a re-branding of the Nintendo DS game LEGO Battles. The second was released earlier this year. It was called LEGO Ninjago: Nindroids. It accompanied the 3rd season of the popular Cartoon Network animated show Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu (the third season was named “Ninjago: Rebooted”).
Unlike Nindroids, Shadow of Ronin will not follow the storyline of the Ninjago TV show. A quote from TT Games explains this:
There is a new threat in Ninjago, and his name is Ronin. With help from his army of dark samurai, Ronin steals the Ninjas’ memories using an ancient weapon called the Obsidian Glaive. The Ninjas forget how to use their elemental powers, and it is up to the players to help them find their Obsidian weapons, regain their memories and reclaim their powers before Ronin completes his plan and releases an even greater evil on Ninjago.
LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin will be available for the Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita in Spring 2015.

Hey there! Sorry that this news is extremely late, and that the blog hasn’t been running well lately, you know, people get busy, and forget about things. :(
The Original Bionicle Toa
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you about the return of LEGO BIONICLE. BIONICLE was a LEGO theme that began in 2001 and lasted until 2010, when it was supposedly replaced by LEGO Hero Factory. BIONICLE was a line of large buildable figures compatible with LEGO Technic and the LEGO System. It revolved around this giant story that I don’t have time to explain. :P
The Mask of Creation from the new Bionicle
Well, after 4 years of BIONICLE being gone, LEGO has announced it’s return. It will not be the same BIONICLE, unfortunately, because the new BIONICLE will revolve around a much less complicated storyline.
