Well, not *that* much cheaper than Lego. Lego sets usually end up around 10 cents per brick (unless you're looking at the architecture set, which end up closer to 20 cents a brick).
At full price, these blocks are 20 cents per brick. Even at the Woot price, once you factor in shipping on one set, the price approaches that of a regular Lego set, closing in on 9 cents per brick.
Sounds like I need to get a set for me and a set for my nieces! That spreads the shipping cost and brings the price down further...
Oh, and while it's worth watching the QVC video, don't listen to what they're saying. It's like they've never heard of the word "translucent" and at one point they start talking about "1500 bricks." However, the video is helpful in showing the locations of the LEDs: you can clearly see that each of the buttons operates two rows of LEDs, giving six rows of LEDs in total.
