I didn’t watch the video, but the thing that immediately comes to mind is a TV screen that can a watched by your minifigures! If you have an iPad, a movie theater!

I only have an iPad…by the way, does anyone know that the achievements in the iOS Legends of Chima Speedorz game (for more info, see: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lego-legends-chima-speedorz/id582417365?mt=8) will award you with codes you can enter in the Chima website to redeem Chi points?

โ— Please note (from what I’ve seen on Amazon) TinkerBrick does NOT have any cases for the IPOD 5G (the newest iPod). Some of you may not see that and will buy one and when you get it see it will not fit! But they do have one for the iphone 5! โ—

BTW Apple products is my hobby besides LEGO!

TinkerBrick’s owner actually personally contacted me to let me know they are working on it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh, and great to know you are an Apple-fan. I will keep that in mind in case i have questions! ๐Ÿ˜€

Don’t buy from Apple… It’s a wallet draining experience.

Trust me, their not. I have an iPad and iPod and their not! There products are a lot better. For example my aunt has the Samsung Galaxy S 3 and my dad has an iPhone. The iPhone is a lot better! ๐Ÿ˜›

I know what you mean, but it’s simple like the iPad instead of the nexus! ๐Ÿ˜› Apple keeps it simple!

I have had the one from smallworks for a while and think it is great. I have the clear one for the iPhone 4.

It only has the studs on the back, but it makes for a much more streamlined case.

(I am not affiliated with smallworks in any way. I just think it is a quality product. )

Does anybody have any idea whether something like this would be a legal issue with Lego? I know the patent for the original brick has expired….

Thomas, if in doubt it is best to contact LEGO’s legal department. They are friendly folks and can help you out with questions in regards to licensing and other legal issues. Some products that are compatible with LEGO get a licensing agreement, which may come with the benefit of LEGO actually promoting/selling the product for you. Most of the accessories you see on LEGO’s website and in LEGO shops are made by third parties. And you can also sell LEGO compatible products that are not licensed by LEGO. In this case you just have to include the proper discplaimers, etc.

Thomas May 30, 2014 at 4:10 PM

So I am assuming the patent on the actual brick ran out… That is why other companies can make compatible products?

Obviously they need to disclaim that these are not made by Lego.

Reply

admin May 30, 2014 at 5:28 PM

Thomas, LEGO never owned the patent for the studs as they have also copied it from another company. So anybody can slap LEGO compatible studs on their products. That is why there are so many LEGO compatible construction toys and merchandise. ๐Ÿ˜‰
