BASE ACE inspires creative play at BRICK 2015, get those bricks out of your box and build!
Base Ace is a brand new construction toy that provides children with an exciting and expandable 3D structure to build and play on. These robust and colourful wooden kits can be used with Mini Figures and building bricks. Base Ace can be customised, connected and expanded to create unique environments such as Spaces Stations, Army Camps or an exciting backdrop for a Superhero mission.
Base Ace allows children to discover a whole new world of mini figure adventures by adding an exciting new dimension to their existing building bricks. Base Ace inspires creative play and provides hours of fun, time and time again!
The Base Ace concept was invented by Brian Stickley, from Romsey in Hampshire, after playing LEGO with his two young sons. “Like many other households across the world, we have a large toy box full of LEGO bricks and Mini Figures”, Brian explains. “Both of my sons are big LEGO fans but they play in different ways. My eldest son likes to build models and put them on his shelf to admire, whilst my youngest son loves to play with his models. It takes time to build a large kit and I noticed the disappointment as his constructions fell apart as he played. I realised that something stronger was needed with quick and easy assembly. I also thought it would be good to build more exciting shapes but still allow the boys to be creative with their bricks and figures.”
Brian made prototypes and decided to approach the Product Design Team at Southampton Solent University for help to develop his new idea. “Two years later and here we are!” Brian goes on to explain. “I’ve just launched a range of unique Play Platforms that include some really exciting shapes and features, and we’ve ensured that Base Ace is compatible with all the leading brands of building bricks and Mini Figures, such as LEGO and MEGA-BLOKS.”
Base Ace kits will upgrade any child’s existing mini figure collection to another level. The kits can combine to create a whole new world of adventure by stretching the imagination and bringing building adventures to life. Transform an inter-galactic spaceship into an awesome power generator or change a curious alien planet into your master criminals multi-story command centre…you decide!
Base Ace Kits can be expanded and customised. Connectors will join one or more bases together and transporter platforms can link one base to another. There are LED lights to illuminate platforms and make the bases glow in the dark. Record and playback your own sound effects such as explosions, sirens, lasers, missiles, vehicle sounds or music using Sound FX Modules.
Base Ace will officially launch at the BRICK 2015 LEGO Show which is being held at the NEC in Birmingham on the 29th October to the 1st November. The range can also be seen at the London edition of the BRICK 2015 LEGO Show which is being held at the ExCel, Docklands on the 10th to 13th December. So come and see Base Ace in action and get your bricks out of your box and build!
