WIN YOUR WISHLIST!

Thousands of fanatics receive their favorite BrickForge accessories in the post each year, but do you ever wonder what happens to those well-intentioned wish lists that sit long-forgotten?

About this time each year BrickForge staff members send all idle customer Wishlists to the North Pole in hopes that Santa Claus (or other festive philanthropist) will grant at least one BrickForge fan their Wishlist. These lists are sorted by Fizzlewick, the official Wishlist Assessor, who helps determine which of the ‘nice’ boys & girls should be granted one last gift this year.

Read more to find out how to win up to $100.00 of BrickForge PLUS a free custom minfig!

October Bonus + RiGGED Wave 3

October Special!
Glassware Pack
 
Happy Autumn!

October is one of our favorite months so we decided to giveaway a few of our lesser-known products: Glassware!

Perhaps not quite as cool as space-y helmets or fantasy weapons, the BrickForge Glassware elements can still offer a significant impact on many models and minifigs. The Glassware packs contain a random assortment of Square Bottles, Round Bottle, Broken Bottles & Sipping Glasses for a total of 8 colorful elements!

Shop at BrickForge and when your cart total reaches $15.00 simply click on the 'Check for Special Offer' link then add the pack to your order. Additional Glassware packs can be purchased for a discounted price of $3.00 each.
 
30 UNDER .30 Deals
Can you believe we're already at Round 13? Honestly, we were going to quit after Round 12, but we've been having a lot of fun digging up old stock and seeing how you guys put them to use we figured we simply couldn't stop now.
 
Outland Ripper, Pauldron & Ponytail in the same batch? Someone show us a really cool Mad Max minifig already!

RiGGED Wave 2 Items Available (20 new elements!)

Get RiGGED for WW2
WW2 Fallschirmjager
RiGGED Wave 2 Shipping Now!

Wave 2 introduces twenty new accessories modeled after items used by the AXIS powers during WW2. Because elements are engineered with the RiGGED system they inherently couple with items from Wave 1, expanding customizing possibilities.

The RiGGED system is a type of MMA (Modular Minifigure Accessory) structure and consists of traditional 3mm & 1.5mm peg & hole combinations integrated into quality ABS minifig accessories. Armors, belts, straps & other types of pack devices contain a series of 1.5mm pegs; constructing a three-dimensional canvas to which minifig enthusiasts can attach a number of other RiGGED accessories. The mix of which spawns hundreds of color/type combinations making each minifig more unique than the previous.
30 UNDER .30
Round 11 items are now available. Consider these pieces a bargain for outfitting armies or if you operate a local shop - ideal for the $0.25 bin.

Remember, if you see an item in the bi-weekly specials; once they sell out, they won't be back.

BrickForge Goes Mad....

BrickForge joins in the March Madness by launching "30 under .30". Every two weeks we will feature a new batch of 30ish items all priced under $0.30 each. Pick up some really cool pieces for mere pennies then check back the following week or so for new ones. Of course, this means that once each round expires, the pieces go back to normal retail price...or will be removed from inventory forever. To insure you don't miss out we will Tweet the beginning of each round every two weeks; follow us @brickforge.

Centaurs
are back with a twist. Browse our Centaur Accessory Kits to find your favorite four-legged fantasy figures: Charger, Destrider, Lancer, Scout & Stormer; each with a handful of handy accessories.

Also featured are an assortment of overstock items used in previous packs. Check out the limited assortment of shields, plumes & mini-scale firearms. More being listed weekly! Our Facebook page is the best source of news, new releases & other fun stuff.

Feb 50% Off Sale Over!

A resounding 'Thank You' to all who participated in our 50% off sale last month. Armothe had a wonderful birthday - no doubt due to all the well wishes you guys sent in.

02/24/2014

BrickForge 50% Special Ending Soon!

Thanks to all who participated in wishing Armothe a Happy Birthday! The celebration sale lasts through the end of February so it’s not too late to grab 50% off loose pieces.

We recently returned from Toyfair, NY where we saw a lot of cool toys, including what’s up-and-coming from LEGO. We handed out some unique-looking business cards and debuted our new BrickForge logo! Follow us on Facebook for photos!

New in the store is our Desert Ranger accessory pack. This kit includes our ultra-popular Dark Tan camouflage Tactical Vest & Helmet, along with desert-themed weapons & gear. Look for more Modern Combat & Powered Assault Commando packs coming soon!

Armothe's February Birthday Bash (50% off Sale)

Hear Ye Faithful Subjects!

The mighty Armothe - head forgemaster at the BrickForge - attains 40 life cycles this month. In joyous celebration we are offering to all in the realm an unparallelled 50% sale off loose BrickForge elements.

The sale has already begun (Feb 1st) and will last through Feb 28th at midnight. Yes, we gave the truly devoted a few days head start to fill their baskets with bountiful goodness; but now we have opened the portcullis for all to partake.

Our Birthday Bash sale only applies to loose elements, not accessory kits or blind bags. Nor does the sale stack with other existing discounts (see details here). Act with expedience though - we've uncovered a lot of inventory and there are plenty of unique items you probably haven't encountered. Of course, now is a great time to stock up on a cache of parts for your minifigs and accessorize those MOCs you started building this year.

Oh...one last request...when you place your order be sure to wish Armothe a 'Happy Birthday' in the comments; and we'll toss in something extra cool!

Enjoy! - the BrickForge underlings

Armothe is 40!

Happy New Year From BrickForge!

Before the celebration begins we wanted to give you a quick heads up on some new releases.

Seven Character Kits were revealed last week:
Diadome 2-Pack: Simulate competitive alien tournaments with a heap of colorful elements
Powered Assault Commandos: Orange, Yellow & Medium Blue to brighten the ranks
UN Peacekeeper: Dress up and station figs across your MOCs to deter curious hands
Alien Bug Hunter: Keep unwanted xenomorphs at bay with this cache of accessories

So far these Character Kits are exclusive to the BrickForge website but may find distribution through our channel of resellers later this year. Keep your eyes peeled for a few more coming out later this month.

If packs aren't your thing then perhaps the 20+ accessories might pique your interest? Most of these stunning elements have special print applied to make them appear two-tone. What better way to dress up your custom minifig than with a multi-colored accessory....who need expensive overmolds anyways! Our favorites are the blood-spattered Shredder Gun, Olive Green Kukri and the Kryptonite Gemstone.

Lastly, if you are looking for a bunch of bargain ballistics you may want to invest in our Eye-Poppin', Butt Whoppin' Super Mega Weapons Packs (Style A & B). $6 will land you x25 of the most vibrant weapons in the galaxy. Two styles to choose from.

Hope to serve you in 2014!
