LEGO Wii-mote

October 14, 2010


I have yet to jump on the Wii bandwagon but this might just bring me on board.

This fully functional Wii-mote is officially licensed by Nintendo and features not only the iconically bright Lego colors, but also 37 interchangeable Lego mini-tiles to accent the controller.

It is set to be available at least in the US on October 16th for $40. I don’t know if this will be a US only product or not. It looks pretty cool, but like the LEGO Star Wars and Indiana Jones DS Lite cases from last year, I don’t know how well this will sell.

I did end up getting all three of the DS cases, but I only paid full price for one of them. Toys R Us put them on clearance in August and you still might be able to find them at your local TRU. I only picked up all three for the printed tiles, as I have a DS, but not a DS lite. I’ve since then traded or given away the cases and kept the tiles for myself.

But for the diehard collector out there this might be a must have. Especially because of the red brick separator. I may be wrong, but if you look closely at the picture, it looks like this brick separator might be different from the standard one. Which would make sense given that all the parts with the Wii remote are tiles. 😉

New Indiana Jones Case for Nintendo DS Lite

October 27, 2009

I mentioned on an earlier post that LEGO was coming out with a build-on LEGO Star Wars Nintendo DS Lite Case with printed tiles and it only makes sense that it wouldn’t be a one off product.

The new LEGO Indiana Jones DS Lite Case is just as cool with an equally awesome tile picture on the front. It looks like both cases will be sold wherever Nintendo DS accessories are available, although I did check Gamestop.com and I didn’t see either one available (at least not yet).

Both Toys R Us.com and StarWarsShop.com have the Star Wars Case available, it looks like Toys R Us is the only one selling the Indiana Jones one at the moment. For some reason its for “pre-order” at the Star Wars Shop, but “in stock” at Toys R Us.

My only problem with Toy R Us is that the cases cost $16.99 there instead of the $14.99 at the Star Wars Shop! 😯

Toy R Us is often more expensive than other toy retailers, a fact that is blatantly obvious if you do any sort of price comparison. However, if the cases are available at my local Toy R Us I just might have to make an exception for these (because when you factor in the shipping costs, it would be about the same) and I don’t even have a DS Lite! 😀

New LEGO Star Wars Case for Nintendo DS Lite

October 11, 2009

Who doesn’t love LEGO Star Wars and Nintendo DS Lite? Well with this latest DS case you don’t have to choose. 🙂

Although there have been other DS cases and stickers for both LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Indiana Jones this is the first time that the case actually had LEGO elements on it. And what’s even sweeter is the awesome tile mosaic of the classic Star Wars scene.

# Protective carrying case for Nintendo DS Lite has two buildable LEGO surfaces for extra fun!
# LEGO surfaces work with any LEGO blocks
# Play-Thru design: play games while the system is protected in the case

Available at StarWarsShop.com It retails for $14.99 UDS, ships worldwide (except Mexico, sorry for those of you South of the Boarder 😕 ) and is currently available for pre-order (product ships in November, just in time for Christmas).

Hopefully (fingers crossed) they are printed tiles and not some lame stickers that you have to put on. I’m not a fan of stickers versus actual printed LEGO elements.

Thanks Ace over at FBTB for pointing this out! 😀
