The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks Now Shipping

It’s been a while since we’ve heard about The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks crowdfunding project but it looks like there’s some good news. The books are finally shipping out to supporters and some of you may have yours delivered already. An update on one of Unbound’s posts says the rewards should be sent out with the books and everything comes in one package. I’ve already heard from people that isn’t the case.

One of the more popular rewards was the LEGO pogo stick prototype element and minifigure which is one of LEGO’s first 3D printed elements. Some people who had that reward tier didn’t get theirs in the package and only got the book. I can only say contact Unbound in this situation and see if they can fix it. Just a side note, the pogo stick proto is already going for over $1000 on the secondary market.

You will be able to choose a universal LEGO nickname to use instead of the random generated one that you got when you first signed up. For obvious reasons, you can’t use the word “LEGO” in it. You can read up on the full list of rules here. Goodbye SergeantTrainedZebra.

Today a new survey has gone up that is looking for feedback on names that this subscription service could be called.

• LEGO Imagination
• LEGO Click
• LEGO Play
• LEGO Imagine
• LEGO Together
• LEGO Limitless
• LEGO Unlimited
• LEGO Universe

The survey ends on November 20 and you can earn 50 VIP points if you complete the entire survey which takes about 10 minutes.
