Nanoblock is sorta like LEGO, except smaller. And, it’s not LEGO, and it’s Japanese. It’s smaller pieces, hence the name, that allow more detailed models to be made. It looks cool, but I don’t think they will have any real dangerous impact on LEGO. However, this small model is really nano, because it’s made up of 1,000 pieces. That’s quite alot. It almost begs the question, does Nanoblock have larger pieces so that the don’t need as many?
You can buy it from Nikon Direct, but it’s in Japan, luckilly, it only costs about $30, which isn’t bad. Unfortunately, it will probably never see the light of day in beautiful America.
