Here's a round-up of news that emerged while Brickset was down:
The Team GB minifigs are now available at shop.LEGO.com in the UK. It states that "A maximum of 9 minifigures may be ordered per address, per household." however if previous experience is anything to go by when they've specified similar restrictions, it won't be enforced. (thanks to thedailybrick)
Loads of people have emailed about BuildWithChrome which will let you populate Australia and New Zealand with 32 x 32 base plates, and build virtual models on them using the Google Chrome browser. It's not something that we'd normally cover in the news but I'll mention it now to stop the emails from flooding in :)
Similarly, news has emerged that LEGO is going to try its hand at another MMOG which is surprising given the fate of their last effort. Hopefully they will take lessons learnt from the failure of Universe and make this one a success. One thing that Universe didn't do but should have, and which it sounds as if this one will, is tie it in with physical products, the collectable minifigures by the sounds of things. I guess this means they will be around for a good few years yet, then... (thanks TooMuchLego)
