    Hey,

    You mentioned last year’s April Fools gag on Classic-Castle. We’ve archived the page here. Ben did the graphics and I came up with the news articles. It was a fun challenge to come up with fairly legitimate articles that fell into the Clickits theme. I’d been meaning to highlight Megan’s dragons (that use Clickits as decorative elements) anyway, so this was a great excuse. In 2006 we posted an article about Lenny Hoffmann getting arrested for breaking his LEGO Ambassador NDA. The space themed front page was in 2005. In 2004 it was a news story about the rerelease of some classic Castle sets as Legends.

    Also, not from Classic-Castle, but years ago someone put out a “leaked photo” of a new set that was a castle-themed bucket, full of figs, specialized pieces, and gray bricks. I don’t remember if that hoax went up on April 1 or not.

    Bruce

    Was the Space gag really done in 2005? How time flies…
