    The technology is also on display at the Lego.com website:

    They've been in the stores for at least the last 18 months. The Augmented Reality games built into the new Nintendo 3DS are even more impressive :-)

    Yeah, theyve been at Tysons Corner for quite a while, though they seem a little glitchy. Very cool though.

    The annoying thing about the 'Digi Box' is that a lot of themes don't work with it. Most of the extended City range & some D2C sets work, but Star Wars, Space Police 3, Power Miners, etal have never been implemented.

    Sorry for posting such old news, believe it or not, I'm still yet to actually visit an official LEGO store (yes, I know...).

    Blimey. It's really time you remedied that.

    I plan to soon, it'll be Cardiff for me, although I'm going on a stag do in Brighton in June, so maybe then.

    Don't be. My post wasn't meant as a rebuke, I was just adding to the information.

    ... however, this is something you should be rebuked over. I'm thinking about banning you right now ... call yourself a LEGO fan, pfffft ;-)

    Well, you see, my only glimmer of an excuse is that I'm still in my infancy when it comes to being an AFOL, but you're right of course, it is entirely unacceptable and I will work on it. However, if you do decide to ban me, then look out for my twin brother joining shortly afterwards, he's called hatkinsar (and he has visited LEGO stores, many many times).

    Ha ha - that should do wonders for your street cred with "the lads" !!

    Excellent. Acknowledgement & acceptance that you have the problem are the first steps to recovery :-)
    There will be no banning ... today ;-)

    Unfortunately..... That's the same story for me. I have visited the LDC Manchester though but the journey is the problem.

    I can sympahize with atkinsar. My wife and I are looking forward to our upcoming move, when we will finally be closer than five hours from a Lego store. We previously lived where one is now, but it was not there when we lived there, and at the time we were not collecting Legos. It wasn't until a few years ago that we realized we both shared a love for Legos. Our kids will be very spoiled when we finally have some!
