Hot Bionicle News LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book Gets Teased
[Source: chrisfabo]
The next upcoming LEGO Ideas set is the Pop-Up Book. While we are due for its release date announcement any day now, perhaps intended for Christmas wish-lists, we'll have to settle for some teasers. LEGO has just released a 10-second teaser trailer on YouTube, featuring the Big Bad Wolf of childhood stories. Check it out, and keep your heads up for more information. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Overwatch Bastion Behind-the-Scenes
A few days ago the first LEGO Overwatch set was made available to fans over in the Blizzard store. The same day over on the LEGO Ambassador Network Jordan Paxton shared some information about the creation of the set. It's an awesome look behind the curtain and it's always great to learn more about the set design process. Give it a read if you're interested in learning more about how LEGO and Blizzard are working together on these new sets! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Titrations Come Out On Top
Recently a new project has achieved ten thousand votes of support on LEGO Ideas! The Chemical Plant by Ymarilego is a large model sitting on top of two 32x32 baseplates and packs in a huge amount of detail from silos and canisters to trucks and trains. It certainly looks like it would be a fun build. Let us know in the Talkback if you think it will pass the review and if you'd buy the plant if it showed up on store shelves! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower A New BBC Contest Spins Up
Earlier this week Tufi Piyufi announced the latest Bionicle-Based Creations Contest - Official BBC Contest #76: No Eight-Legged Freaks!.

There's a bevy of great prizes up for grabs, including a rare 1441 Fikou polybag. You have until October 25th to build and enter your creation, so get in the Halloween spirit and get building!

BZPower Construction on Hogwarts Finally Resumes
How has it been nearly a month since our last stream? Life has made scheduling this rather difficult lately but we're making time to get back to it! Tonight at 8 PM Eastern we're continuing construction of 71043 Hogwarts Castle from the LEGO Harry Potter theme over on the BZPower YouTube channel. We don't have any more collectible minifigures to feel, but we have plenty to give away, so make sure you tune in and join the chat! Hopefully we'll be doing these a bit more frequently and can make some good progress on the castle. See you tonight! Talk Back in our Forums

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

The set costs $25 and includes 182 parts with at least a couple of prints (or stickers?). For more information and hi-res images, read on! Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

BZPower Twitch Tuesday
After taking a day off last week, we'll be back tonight with our usual Twitch Tuesday stream! Come by the BZPower Twitch Channel tonight starting at around 7:30 PM Eastern to chat while we play some LEGO videogames. You can help us decide on the game by voting in the Twitch Tuesday Discussion Topic - will we stay with The Incredibles or move on to something new? I look forward to seeing what you decide and sitting down with you all tonight as we play! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Inktober Bionicle Drawings
Sometimes you need a bit of inspiration to get the creative juices flowing. That's one of the ideas behind Inktober, which provides a list of prompts each year and calls on artists to make one inked drawing each day for the month of October. BZPower member Tattorack took a couple of their prompts and decided to give them a Bionicle twist with Masks and Water. I'm especially fond of the second piece and the way the water is crashing up against the rock. If you're also participating in Inktober and have made some Bionicle drawings, let us know in the Talkback! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Classic LEGO Island Promotional Video Makes a Return
Even after two decades, the original LEGO Island game has a loyal group of fans around it. Much to their delight, Lorin Swelk, the game's composer, recently shared a promotional video that was shown at E3 many years ago to advertise the then-upcoming game. Fair warning - the animation is... rather dated and they take some liberties with how exactly LEGO bricks work. But at a time when 3D animation was still relatively new, it's certainly an interesting look back at a much-beloved part of LEGO history. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Manchester Gets a New Master Builder
Late last month James Windle discovered that he would be the next Master Builder at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Manchester, UK. As the BBC reports, he got the news from a ten-foot tall minifigure in a shark costume. That's certainly an exciting way to get some good news! James joins a group of around two dozen Master Builders in the world, so congratulations on the spot! Let us know in the Talkback if this is your dream job too. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News New Cryoshell Single Released
Yesterday Cryoshell, known for being one of the bands behind the music of Bionicle, released a new single from their upcoming album, Next to Machines. You can go listen to or buy Slipping on your music platform of choice from Apple to YouTube. I enjoyed it on my first play and will probably go back a and re-listen to it a few times over the course of the weekend. I'm looking forward to see what else they come out with for the album! Let us know your thoughts on the new song in the Talkback. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Brick Or Treat Returns to LEGOLAND Parks and Discovery Centers
Weekends in October mean Brick or Treat for those near a LEGOLAND Park or Discovery Center. Attractions and times vary depending on which facility you visit, so go to http://www.brickortreat.com/ first to see what's available before you plan your trip. Even if you've been before, there are usually new models and shows to see, and the annual "haunting" of miniland exhibits is a little different every time. Remember: adults visiting LEGOLAND Discovery Centers during regular hours are required to be accompanied by a child. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Ideas Update
It's time to catch up on the latest LEGO Ideas news. Yesterday we let you know that the team was announcing the results of the latest review. If you didn't see it live, you can watch it right here. Two projects will be turned into actual sets: the Treehouse and the Flintstones! If you want to learn more about the second project and its designer you can check out this 10K Club Interview: Meet Andrew Clark of The Flintstones. Another interview was posted recently as well with the youngest Ideas designer to date: Meet Maxime Cheng of The Vintage Motorcycle of BMW R60/2. I'm excited to see the final sets - let us know our thoughts in the Talkback! Talk Back in our Forums

Thursday, October 4, 2018
Yesterday LEGO announced a new Star Wars set that will be available for the holidays that's interesting in a couple of regards. First, 75251 Darth Vader's Castle is an Amazon-exclusive, which is the first time I can recall Amazon getting an exclusive set. Second while the castle first appeared in 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the announcement of this set was timed to perfectly coincide with the release of the first issue of the Tales from Vader's Castle comic from IDW and also ties into the the current 'Fortress Vader' story arc of the Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith comic by Marvel. Yes, I'm a Star Wars nerd. You can preorder the set now on either Amazon or Shop@Home today. For hi-res pictures and the press release, read on! Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Overwatch Sets Will Not Be Buildable Figures
I held out hope for as long as possible but today my dreams of LEGO Overwatch constraction sets have been shattered. In a tweet on the Overwatch account you can check out a twenty-seven second teaser showing off Tracer in minifigure form. If I had to guess, we'll see the full reveal at BlizzCon, which takes place in exactly one month. I am interested to see how this partnership works out - Overwatch is very popular but it remains to be seen as to how it will mesh with our favorite building toy. Talk Back in our Forums
