Any Makeblock kit owners?

I'm really interested in the Makeblock kits that exist right now (as opposed to the in-development electronics), but it seems like no one on the internet actually owns one.  Does anyone here have one and could make a detailed blog review with closeup pictures or any more information at all beyond all the marketing stuff that I've already found plenty of?  The threaded slots seem like the most unusual parts, do they work well?  Are the parts well-made, fit together well, and so on- anything would be appreciated.
