Hey folks!

 

Got some LEGO related news. While it may not be TLG related, I was notified by email that BrickForge will be closing in the next couple of months. After 13 years of business, it appears as though we will be losing yet another vendor. 

 

So pour one out, press F to pay respects, say your last words, and buy up anything that you want that's left!

A tragedy, to be sure, though now I realize there was precedent.  They seemed to be having trouble keeping products in stock, for reasons I can only guess at, and newer competitors like BrickWarriors seem to be quickly filling the gaps. 

 

We shall mourn their loss, and remember the impact they had on our creations.

 

Edit: Oddly enough, I'm subscribed to their email list, but didn't get this notification.  Ah well, I trust Nightstalker as a source.  I wonder if there'll be a big clearance sale soon...

Pretty sad day - Red Bean's swords and armor were the first third-party minifig accessories I ever bought - some of the first ones out there. He designed them with clay - clay! - not computers. It would be great if someone else kept making them, somehow. Armothe had some really inventive ideas too. But all things must end.

 

I wish he had some Neck Armor I could completely buy out... but he hasn't had any of that in stock for months and months. I'll probably scoop up a bunch of other stuff though, and make some minifigs for the shop with some of it.

Oh man, yes, the NECK ARMOR.  They have all these awesome pauldrons, but I have to cover up Scorp's decals or existing chest/back designs with their battle armor to use them?  I even asked them by contact form if the neck armor was coming back into stock, as I'd been looking for months, and they informed me that they had no plans to restock it.  As in, "ever," judging by the tone of the email.  Which, in hindsight, I should have taken as a hint that things weren't going well.

That being said, there's a massive 50% off clearance going on right now. I'd be lying if I said I didn't pick up a ton of items.

Aw, really?  I shouldn't have jumped the gun with my 35% coupon from Halloween, but didn't think their clearance (if they had one) would remove a significant amount.  

 

Ah well, maybe I'll get some more of their hexibrix stands or something.
