Black NXT at sale
Amazon is selling the black NXT for $89.99, which is (correct me if I'm wrong) cheaper than a common white NXT when bought through regular channels. The link is here.
To my surprise, the brick is now also available in Europe through LEGO Shop @ Home, for 112.50 Euro.
The little dog you see there is one of the robots I built with this brick.
112.50 Euro = 161.28 US-Dollar
Could you remember where is set Danemark...? ;-)
At least it is available now. On the bright side: if you have family or friends in the USA, you might ask them to buy it for you, which will cost you only 65 euro + shipping. Shipping doesn't have to cost much more than 15 euro.
This is how I ordered a few MINDSTORMS sensors some time ago.
Of course, I don't know the legalities of this... move forward at your own risk.
2.One LEGO Mindstorms a Firenze, Italy, costs 300 euros!
My question is: Where in Milano or Rome can I find a LEGO Mindstorms for a fair price?
Even to buy a toy in Europe is strange. I wonder where this euro "free" market is going.
are there Building instructions somewhere online?
But, the BI's are here also if tat's easier:
You can build it with a regular NXT 1.0 kit + 3 40z gears. I haven't added instructions for the dog-like head, though, since I designed it after I made the BI's.
