At the request of Ambassadors, we have a short update from the Powered Up team:
Today the Powered Up Team launched a website dedicated to Powered Up components, where they highlight most important benefits of the platform and show what can be done with components when you buy them separately. There will be also app update where you can newly code your own creations - create your own code, modify it, save it and come back to it. This Mobile app is available in App store or Google Play, but models can be also controlled by Powered Up remote control via Bluebooth.
Where is Powered Up used?
LEGO ® Powered Up platform is used in the active lines LEGO® DC Super Heroes App-Controlled Batmobile (76112), the LEGO® City Cargo Train (60198), or the LEGO® City Passenger Train (60197) and it continue to be used in future products
Can I buy the Powered Up Components Separately?
