MacBook and Mac mini owners, do NOT bother with this. Yes, I know it specifies a real video card in the specs, but I had to try it anyway. It runs like a dog on the MacBook and its craptastic Intel GMA950 graphics "accelerator".

Apple, stop cheaping out and give the entry level MacBook a REAL video card!

What a fabulous update! The interface has been greatly improved, and the speed of the application has also been significantly improved. My kids are having a ball with this program. And it is free - you can't go wrong!

No problems here. Running on 10.4.9 and works flawlessly.

It FREE and it does exactly what it states. Nothing not to like.

Ok, just downloaded this, I guess it's been around for a while. I never knew about it.

The concept of having a FREE application that allows you to create anything you want, and then have Lego ship you the parts sounds like a dream come true.

The only issue I have with the application (which is easy enough to use) is the limited block sets... It comes with one for trains (as of April '07 or build 2.0).

I was looking to build something for Star Wars, but realized that even standard blocks were missing, not to mention the less common pieces.

What's MORE disappointing is that you can't get the missing blocks anywhere... So if you want to really get creative, you're stuck with just basic blocks.

Give a look to the gallery ... you'll find some awesome models! You can also download and edit them with Lego DD (and you can view the build instruction asnimation of that model).

boots slow on first run but after it works perfectly fine, maybe it has to render these files? but why can you only use a limited amount of bricks? we all know theres no shortage on those things

It's unreasonably slow to boot up on a 1GHz G4 that has a more than reasonable graphics card, taking 3 minutes almost on first run, it freezes up for aprox. 10 seconds on subsequent runs while its "looking for new bricks"

oi

Maybe Windows users are used to this kinda of rubbish, but this is a mac, have some respect LEGO and clean this program up. What's with the wack UI anyway?

My son started to play with it two weeks ago and now it's impossible to detach him from the machine. A great and useful application! Kudos to LEGO for giving it away for free!

Be forewarned this is an Intel only version. I've emailed the company and they haven't been very helpful thus far.

Beware! Even though the notes on MacUpdate says that v3.0.9 is PPC and Intel compatible, after installing it I found out that it's ONLY Intel compatible (no PPC binaries)! This installer will overwrite your previous version.

The package installer Read ME states that it's only Intel compatible :(
