This month Character Options have released a new range of construction toys - Lite Brix.
Lite Brix contain multicoloured flashing LEDs that when placed together complete a circuit and illuminate.
There is a range for Boys featuring racing cars, helicopters, fire station and Jet Fighter. The Girls range includes a candy shop, fashion runway and sparkle station.
This range is already available in the US from Cra-Z-Art (in Target stores).

As we know the Character Building sets are produced by/with the Polish company COBI. I was looking at their site and spotted several interesting items.
- firstly, on their Scooby Doo page they have several exciting sets that have not been seen in the UK yet (or announced).
- secondly - they have a range of sets based on the very popular Trash Pack toys.
I hope Character bring these to the UK soon.Read more >

You probably came to this wiki because you collect a particular Character Building range, whether that's Doctor Who , Sports Stars, H.M. Armed Forces or any of the other licenses.
BUT, have you thought about swapping some parts over to create something unique?
Maybe you want to create your own dream team, so swap the head on your Wayne Rooney with one of Doctor Who's companions!
Want to spice up your Doctor Who adventure - then add some creature parts from Monsters Vs Zombies !
AND, if you come up with a really good creation - then post it here for others to appreciate.

So... you've seen my many edits on this wiki and may be wondering - does he collect everything!
well the short answer is no! BUT... I do have a wide range of interests.
My primary interest is actually Halo Mega Bloks ! but I like the Character Building ranges, especially the mini-figures!
I've been a Doctor Who fan for longer than I care to rember, and have probably forgotten more about Doctor Who than most people ever know. I still prefer the classic series over the modern series. I have every DVD released.
I'm particulary interested in the Monsters Vs Zombies figures, Doctor Who monsters, Navy Service, Buqz (mini-bugz) and Steve Backshall mini figures.
please leave a post on my talk page if you have some to sell or trade. Tiki Elite (talk) 15…Read more >
You can edit articles and upload pictures directly - but if you don't have the time - then send them to me (leave details on my Talk page ) and I'll do it.
- Pictures of missing Micro Figures
- Scans of boxes - front and back
- Scans of checklists, info sheets etc
- Item Numbers! Help us catalog the entire range.
If you are able to contribute, then great! We would love to see pictures of your collection.
It would be nice (my opinion) to set up a trading community.
It would be nice (my opinion) to post where sets and figures have been sighted, and of any special deals/price reductions you've seen.
