eLite Jr. Preorder ends soon!

You have until March 29th to take advantage of the $15 eLite Jr. preorder. After that, the eLite Jr. will be $20 so you better hurry!

Release date is coming soon for the Jr. We've already ordered the first batch to fill the preorders. We should have them within the next 3 weeks (cross your fingers!). Sorry it's taking longer than expected, but the microchip manufacturer is backordered on our chip until May. I pulled some strings and paid extra to secure a small batch of them for you guys (and gals)! Keep the faith! The eLite Jr.s is coming...

For those of you who ordered other product along with your eLite Jr. preorder, please be patient. We will ship soon and all your product will go out at the same time. If you need your other product sooner, please email us and let us know.

LifeLites in Space contest!

It seems over the past year (wow, a year already?!) that we've received tons of photos and videos from you showcasing your great creational talents using our little lighting systems. We've seen TONS of firetrucks, and other emergency vehicles among the mix of some pretty ingenious MOCs. But where are the star cruisers, the drop ships, or the space stations?

Introducing the "LifeLites in Space" contest. We invite you to build any size, any color, any shape MOC in the theme of "space" that you can possibly dream up. The only rules are:
  1. You must include a LifeLites eLite kit in your creation
  2. The MOC must be an original creation made by YOU
  3. You must submit at least 1 photo and 1 short video of your MOC
  4. All entries must be received by September 19, 2008 11:59pm GMT-6 (CST)
There will be a panel of 4 judges who will judge entries based on aesthetics, building techniques, and creativity. Winners will be notified via email, so make sure you give us you contact information. Email your entry videos and photos (or links to them) to spacecontest@lifelites.com.

First place winners will receive a LifeLites eLite PF kit.
Second place winners will receive a LifeLites eLite Basic kit.
Third place (and below) winners get laughed at for not winning. Better luck next time, losers!

If you have questions, post them in the comments below. More information about LifeLites products can be found at LifeLites.
