Hot Bionicle News Bionicle Concludes Again
[Source: BZPower Members]
On the official LEGO Bionicle website, it has just been announced that Bionicle has been canceled again. From my interactions with the Bionicle team over the past few years I know they have been overwhelmed and appreciative of the support and response for Bionicle from the community. They know we are out here and want us to do our best to keep the torch lit as we once again go into a dark time for the theme. As fans, this is obviously a major disappointment, but we did our best to ensure Bionicle was remembered in the past and I know we will all keep it alive moving forward. This is only the end of the sets for now, not the end of Bionicle. Talk Back in our Forums

Remember to use spoiler tags when discussing on the forums, but we definitely want to hear what you think of the next installments! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Seventh Nexo Power Video: "Quick Sand"
A couple weeks ago, the LEGO Nexo Knights website was updated with this month's Nexo Power video, "Quick Sand", which finds the knights in the midst of a battle and Merlok 2.0's Nexo Power library glitching out, preventing him from sending them aid! But with a bit of hacking, whiz kid Ava Prentice may be able to solve both problems at once! Follow the link above to check out the video, and have your phone or tablet ready so you can unlock a new power for your Merlok 2.0 app! Talk Back in our Forums

Jay Vincent, who composes the score of LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu together with musical partner Michael Kramer, has announced on his YouTube channel that Varèse Sarabande Records will be digitally releasing a LEGO Ninjago Season Two soundtrack on August 5th! The video features samples of tracks from the new album, including the track "Day Jobs" which was written for the Season Two premiere but replaced with The Fold's "Ninja, Go!" in the final cut of the episode. The album will also include a bonus mashup track featuring the Ninjago theme recreated in the style of around a dozen different musical genres.

Hot Bionicle News Two Ideas Projects Reach Threshold
Recently there have been two projects on LEGO Ideas that have achieved ten thousand votes of support. First up is The Large Hadron Collider by NathanR2015, which replicates the famous scientific apparatus located at CERN in France and Switzerland. It's a simple model, but it accurately captures the major components of the device, which makes sense, since Nathan actually works with it! Next there's the Lego Observatory - Mountain View by ThomasW, which looks like it could be based on a real place but isn't. The observatory has a high level of detail and awesome interiors and could almost be confused with a Creator Expert modular building. How do you feel about these models? Would you buy either one to add to your collection? Let us know in the Talkback! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Ninjago Wu-Cru App Released
LEGO has released a new LEGO Ninjago Wu-Cru app for free download on iOS and Android. Seemingly unrelated to the Wu-Cru mission and rewards pages on the LEGO Ninjago website, this new app is instead an action RPG that lets you create your own ninja, fight baddies in over 60 levels, collect blueprints to unlock vehicles, and rescue the heroes of Ninjago to fight alongside you. Visit the iTunes and Google Play sites for specs, screenshots and additional details! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Launches Remake
Yesterday LEGO launched a new site to help kids find different ways to play with their bricks. Remake provides instructions for alternate models from a variety of different LEGO sets. Back in the day, there were often alternate models on the backs of boxes, but these days, with more sets being made than ever, the designers don't have the time to do that for every single set. So for Remake, LEGO has turned to six AFOLs who have created all of the alternate builds! It's awesome to see TLG involving the community in new and different ways, and I hope to see Remake grow and expand! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Two LEGO Minecraft "Skin Packs" Coming in September
The LEGO Minecraft Facebook page has released a video announcement in which a LEGO graphic designer shows off two LEGO Minecraft "skin packs" coming in September. Each pack will include four minifigures representing different skins for Minecraft characters. Details on pricing, availability, and how the figures will be packaged are still forthcoming. Follow the link above to check out the video and see the minifigures that will be included in these packs! Talk Back in our Forums

The LEGO Group has released three brand-new LEGO Elves webisodes on their official YouTube channel. "Point of View" features a duet between Emily Jones and Ragana Shadowflame that contrasts the ways they each see the world of Elvendale. In "Crystal Clear", Naida Riverheart and Sira Copperbranch explore the Crystal Mines and discover a cautionary tale about stealing nature's treasures. And in "Change From Within", Ragana gets tired of not being loved and accepted by the other elves of Elvendale and attempts to rebrand. Follow the links above or read on to watch the new webisodes!

BZPower The Last Known Survivor
Sometimes a builder comes up with a backstory for their MOC that makes it even cooler. In the case of BlackboltJohnson's Firthan, the Last of the Bloodwing Clan, it takes a quirky little MOC and makes him a fierce warrior upholding the legacy of his people. The color scheme strikes me the most, as there's quite a few different hues that manage to work well together in this instance. The core design is fairly simple, but captures the shape of this vaguely-avian alien in a way that makes it distinct and unique. There's even a second part of the tale to explain a 'powered-up' version of the character. All-in-all it's a complete package that's worth a look - so check it out and let him know what you think!

Hot Bionicle News Behind the Scenes of the Captain America Statue
San Diego Comic Con may be behind us, but there are still some cool things we missed from around the show. For example, CNN Money of all places has a cool video showing what went into building the life size Captain America statue that was on display at the event. LEGO Master Builder Erik Varszegi explains the process and some of the techniques used in creating a model that needs to be shipped around the country and stand up to thousands of photo ops. It's definitely worth a watch! Talk Back in our Forums

LEGO and Warner Bros. Pictures released a brand-new trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie during San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, and it's now available online via the Warner Bros. Pictures YouTube channel. In the new trailer, Bruce Wayne's adopted son discovers the Batcave, borrows one of Batman's old suits, and takes his place as Batman's sidekick, Robin. But is he ready for the sorts of "life lessons" that Batman intends to teach him? And more importantly, is Batman ready to take responsibility for a spunky kid sidekick?

Hot Bionicle News Ahsoka Tano LEGO Dress at SDCC Worn by Ashley Eckstein
LEGO has had a strong presence at San Diego Comic Con for a while now, but I doubt anyone expected the bricks to show up at a fashion show. Ashley Eckstein, voice actress for Star Wars Rebels as Ahsoka Tano, hosted the SDCC Her Universe Fashion Show wearing a completely LEGO-made dress...of Ahsoka Tano. Designed by Nathan Sawaya and Andrew MacLaine, the dress used over 10,000 LEGO pieces! Check it out and be amazed. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Bionicle: The Journey to One Episode Four Trailer
With only a week left before the release of the next two episodes of LEGO Bionicle: The Journey to One, the LEGO Bionicle Facebook page has released a trailer for episode 4: "The Dark Portal". In this teaser we get to see the Toa going toe-to-toe with Umarak the Destroyer, as well as a closer look at Umarak's dark master. Umarak's shadow powers seem a lot stronger than they were when he was merely Umarak the Hunter, but as any long-time Bionicle fan knows, Toa never give up without a fight!

BZPower Happy Anniversary BZPower!
Wow. As of today, our little corner of the Internet has existed for fifteen years! I'm sure back in 2001 when Dimensioneer started what was then 'Bionicle Zone' he didn't expect us to still be around and active all this time later.

Hot Bionicle News Robin and the Joker Re-Imagined in The LEGO Batman Movie
USA Today has published a story with stills and details of Batman's sidekick Robin (Michael Cera) and nemesis the Joker (Zach Galifianakis) as they appear in next year's The LEGO Batman Movie. Their stories are a bit different than you might know from comics and movies, with Robin as an lovable, cheerful young boy who the solitary Bruce Wayne inadvertently adopts at a charity auction, and the Joker as an insecure villain desperate to prove he's got what it takes to be Batman's arch-enemy. Both characters will appear in a trailer set to be unveiled later this week at San Diego Comic-Con. Follow the link for more details! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Kopaka, Meet Kopaka
It feels like we've been on something of a Kopaka streak lately, showcasing DeeVee's MOC last week and Kopaka 'n' Kopaka by Hidron Nuva this time around. The piece of art does a good job capturing the general shapes of the two sets while giving them more fleshed out forms. I feel like it highlights the changes from 2001 to 2015 very well, with the added bulk, more varied color scheme, and general increase in size that modern CCBS sets have. Plus, it's cool to look at!
