Now It’s Official: MINDSTORMS Site Announces NXT 2.0

Monday, June 29th, 2009

The official MINDSTORMS site has now announced the upcoming release of the NXT 2.0 set. The news release reports that “pre-selling will start on July 1″ at the LEGO online shop, Amazon.com, and TRU.com.

NXT 2.0 Set Now Shown on Online LEGO Store

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

Right after I mentioned the absence of an official announcement of the NXT 2.0 set on the MINDSTORMS site, I received a LEGO catalog in the mail that featured the set and showed it shipping “August 1.” I quickly checked the official LEGO online store and, yup, found the NXT 2.0 set (thought not for pre-order yet). I’m sure many more details will come out in the next two months.

LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 Pre-Order on Amazon

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

In just the past few days, Amazon.com put up a listing for the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 set in its catalog. Amazon says that the set is available for pre-order and will ship August 1, 2009. Not even the official MINDSTORMS site has put up the NXT 2.0 set yet, so I find it interesting that it’s available for pre-order on Amazon.
