These themes are drawn from Lego classics like Castles and Space as well as extending things with the likes of new Mythology worlds. The Minifigures angle here is a clever one that leverages the hugely popular collectable figurines purchased in blind bags. The game is reported to leverage codes in the physical LEGO Minifigure packs to unlock the equivalent in-game character. This is real Skylanders and Disney Infinity territory although the interaction here is a one way unlock, no information is stored back on the toy character. Players have a choice of either unlocking new Minifigures through normal game-play, purchasing Minifigures via the physical product, making a virtual purchase in the game or paying for a monthly membership. The parents section of theLego Minifigures Online website explains these purchases as follows: Lego Minifigures Online is a Free-to-Play game with optional in-game purchases, and the game can be played completely without paying. Diamonds (in-game currency) and Memberships are also available as optional purchases. Children below the age of 13 have to rely on their parents for such purchases. A membership option is required if you want to communicate to other players, and provides additional random Minifigures amongst other benefits. Memberships yields several benefits for your child including a weekly allowance of Diamonds and a monthly bonus bag with a random Minifigure inside. Membership prices range from $7.99 for a month to $39.99 for 6 months and $59.99 for a year.

Show Caption Not so according to Middle Eastern artist Saint Hoax . He is turning the fairytale ending you seen in most Disney movies into a domestic violence awareness campaign featuring battered Disney princesses. According to Hoax, the awareness campaign is called "Happily Never After" and targets any girl or woman who has been subject to domestic violence. The aim of the poster series is to encourage victims to report their cases in order for the authorities to prevent it from happening again, Hoax explained on his website. The poster series shows Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Jasmine and Ariel with black eyes and blood coming from cuts on their faces. Each poster is accompanied by the caption, "When did he stop treating you like a princess? It's never too late to put an end to it." The controversial poster series, which was rolled out last week online caught the attention of pop culture website Buzzfeed. An article on the site describes the illustrations as "shocking." "I think the act of domestic violence itself is shocking," said Hoax in a phone interview with ABC Action News Tuesday. "If we want to tackle it in any way we have to shock the audience in order for us to pass the message across." Hoax said he did not get Disney's approval to use their princesses. However, he feels they should understand his message that not all relationships have a fairytale ending. "At the end of the day, this is something I did to influence people in a positive way," he explained. Hoax will not reveal his identity nor his location in the world. However, he did give a hint as to what was his inspiration.
