Hi guys and gals, thanks for all your support during my time here with WordPress.com. I’m moving to another server so I can add in more features and upgrade the blog. Everything will be the same except Smashing Bricks will now be located at: www.smashing-bricks.com. Hope to see you there! Cheers!

A few days ago, Toys N Bricks forum member cowbug reported spotted a new smaller reduced box size for LEGO Star Wars 8093 Plo Koon’s Starfighter at his local Wal-Mart in USA.
Today peanut (also from Toys N Bricks) reported seeing tons of the new smaller box sized sets at the Seattle area LEGO Store. This includes themes like Star Wars, Kingdoms, Harry Potter, City, Pharaoh’s Quest, Creator and even battle packs.
This is good news indeed. Hopefully, TLG will eventually reduce the box sizes of every set and lower shipping costs for LEGO fans across the world. Saving the environment, reducing production costs and better shipping rates for everyone is pure win.

As usual, I’ve created another price guide for all your price comparison needs when buying LEGO locally.
There’s a brand new LEGO Pirates Of The Caribbean Microsite. The good news is, it has a full list of the minifigures from the POTC sets. The bad news is, only Captain Jack Sparrow is available for viewing now. There’s 27 of them and I guess they will be slowly revealed as the microsite gets updated when the scheduled release date of the sets draw nearer.
Captain Jack Sparrow:
“Jack Sparrow is dueling to the death for the key to the Dead Man’s Chest. He’ll have to be sneakier than ever to clench control of that key and make a break for it before the other pirates have him in pieces.”
