Buy Mega Bloks Struxx

Updated on March 16, 2011

The Struxx series was a small group of sets released by Mega Brands in 2007 and 2008 that used a different connecting building block system to normal Mega Bloks sets. Rather than using Brick based pieces these sets used cylindrical rods, ball and socket joints and angled connectors similar in desgin to K-nex pieces.

The fact that the sets were not really compatible with conventional Mega Bloks sets limited their appeal although their playability was immense and there were a huge amount of different models you could build with each set.

Mega Bloks is a Canadian Toy company that produces building blocks that are exactly similar to Lego they hold many licensing agreements to produce related items plus other sets. These sets are similar in design and size to Lego sets and make a good alternative to Lego sets for Christmas and Birthday presents particularly since many of the franchise lines are exclusive to Mega Bloks.

Much of this information is courtesy of a great resource for all things relating to Mega Bloks - www.blokcity.com

Some of these sets are still available in the shops and Amazon and they often come up on Ebay where they can be bought for very reasonable prices.
