Hot Bionicle News Buy a MOC from a LEGO Designer
Every winter, AFOLs across the globe band together to raise money to make the upcoming holidays better for children in need. Creations for Charity organizes top builders to donate creations for sale, where the proceeds go towards buying new LEGO to donate. This year, they are lucky enough to have LEGO Designers (the pros that make LEGO sets) donate quite a few MOCs to support the cause. Check out those MOCs, shop around for other cool items, and see how you can help Creations for Charity make this another memorable holiday season. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Ideas Launches a New Idea
Nope, it's not a new set coming from a fan designer, it's a whole new part of the site! Dubbed "Contests (beta)," the team is trying out running competitions instead of open crowd-sourcing. The first contest to go up is Build Your LEGO Ideas Logo which, simply enough, challenges you to build a new logo for LEGO ideas out of physical or digital bricks. You have until December 15th to enter, and there are some great sets up for grabs as prizes. Check it out and get imagining, and maybe you can win! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News BZPower Builds Last Jedi Figures
This Friday, November 17th, at 5 PM Eastern we'll be kicking off our next live build! Since we're under a month until Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, it seems only right that we build the CCBS sets based on the film! We've got Rey, Chewbacca, the Praetorian Guard, and the TIE Fighter Pilot plus a bunch of giveaways to hook you up with cool free sets! We'll see you all over at the BZPower YouTube channel in less than two days for some building fun! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Twitch Tuesday
Today is that day of the week again: Twitch Tuesday! That means tonight at about 7:30 PM Eastern we'll be heading over to our Twitch channel to share some LEGO videogame fun. You can vote for what game you'll watch us play by voting in the discussion topic, where you can also share your general thoughts and feedback on the stream. Just a note before we wrap up: while LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 was released today, Amazon seems to have dropped the ball in sending me my copy, so if that's what wins we'll have to pick another game to play (probably the original Marvel Superheroes in free-play mode). Regardless it should be a lot of fun and saving the day from the forces of evil! Talk Back in our Forums

Market News LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Out Today
The latest LEGO video game from Tt Games drops today: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. The story involves Kang the Conqueror pulling cities and heroes from across the multiverse, allowing fan favorite characters from multiple timelines to team up with the heroes we all know and love from the comics. The story is based on a Kurt Busiek Avengers story, and he even wrote the plot for this game! Check out the latest trailer, then grab the game for one of the many current gaming systems. Tt Games has a great track record for the LEGO games, and I expect nothing less from this. Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Check Out this Hot Bot
Like, literally hot. Vern Vermilious, Furnace Repair Bot is designed to work in environments that humans would likely find difficult to tolerate, and features some design cues to accommodate its function. The builder, Primus, made use of a variety of parts from over the years to complete the build. My favorite element is the Technic seat used as the head, but the Masks of Fire on the shoulders, the Bohrok shield on the chest, and the discs on the forearms all give it some interesting shapes. It really has an industrial look with a great color scheme and is worth your time to check it out! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Women of NASA Have Launched
This week on the LEGO Ideas blog, the team has shared a recap of a very special launch event for the recently-released 21312 Women of NASA set. Maia Weinstock, the creator of the idea, invited friends and family to a party at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Boston. Among the guests were none other than Margaret Hamilton and Nancy Grace Roman, two of the space pioneers who have been turned into LEGO minifigures. It looks like it was quite the event and I'm glad we got a sneak peek behind the scenes. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Build Your Name Big and Buy Some DUPLO
A new service offers a great gift for any young children in your life: blocky DUPLO letters spelling any name you choose. DUPLOBrickNames will send the right bricks and instructions for making a custom decoration fit for a child's room, like one might have with wooden blocks on a shelf. While many of us are adept at building letters out of LEGO and DUPLO, getting all those parts in the right colors can be time consuming and costly. This service keeps to a standard in shape and color with no hassle to the fan. Check it out to see just what is offered. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Tis the Season to Build
Now that Halloween is behind us, it seems like many are already turning their sights on the holidays and festivities that fill the month of December. That includes the LEGO ReBrick team, who recently launched the Winter Wonderland Worlds contest. LEGO is challenging builders to create a diorama or vignette capturing that most wonderful time of the year. You can use bricks, LEGO Digital Designer, or the LEGO Worlds game as your media of choice, and the winner walks away with a prize package including a Playstation 4 and some LEGO Ninjago Movie sets. You have until November 28th to enter, so get building now! And while you're over there, make sure you check out the winners of the LEGO Batman's Return to The Justice League contest!

Hot Bionicle News Ninjago Fanfic From Theme's Creator
Late last month Tommy Andreasen, one of Ninjago's creators, began posting a Ninjago story on Twitter in celebration of the 'Day of the Departed.' Officially it's not part of the canon, but coming from where it does, it definitely presents the characters accurately, although it's a bit darker than the show usually is. Go read chapters one, two, and three of 'Way of the Departed' and let us know what you think of it in the Talkback! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Trademark Gains Recognition in China
Recently LEGO shared some great news out of one of their fastest-growing markets: the LEGO trademark is now recognized as a 'well-known' trademark in China. Check out the press release for all the details, but in short, due to some recent court rulings, the LEGO logo we all know and love is in a better position to protect itself against infringement by other companies looking to piggyback on our favorite toy's reputation. This is great news and hopefully a stepping stone for action against counterfeit products that seem to be proliferating in China and elsewhere. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Sell Your LEGO Idea (Figuratively)
Earlier this week, the LEGO Ideas team shared another video where set designers give tips on creating a project for the platform. Go watch Sage Advice From Savvy Designers - Part 4 to learn how to target your idea and present it in the best possible way for your desired audience. There's definitely some useful information in there as always, so give it a watch and hopefully learn some things you can use in your creative endeavors! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Under Pressure
BZPower Member Pereki has been busy since Trial by Tahu came out last year. His latest animation, Water Pressure, is in the same style as the first - emulating the classic Mata Nui Online Game. He brings some new personality to the characters in a way that's quite fun to watch. While the short film fits into the timeline of the story, it might take some artistic liberties with the Bionicle canon... I definitely enjoyed watching it and think you all will too - go check it out now! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News The LEGO Ninjago Movie Home Release
It seems like the LEGO Ninjago Movie was just in theaters, but already they're ready to release it for the smaller screens. The official Facebook and Twitter pages have updated their cover photos reflecting the upcoming release dates. The digital movie will be available for download on December 12th, 2017, and the Blu-Ray copy will be coming out on December 19th, 2017, just in time for the last minute holiday shopping sprees. Hopefully there will be some special features included, but at the very least it will allow fans to pause and admire the on screen details of Ninjago City. Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Try Out Twitch Tuesday
We're back to that time of the week, aka Tuesday, where we play some videogames live for you all to watch! We'll be over at our Twitch channel starting at around 7:30 PM Eastern and playing for around an hour or so. While we've currently been playing The LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame, you get to control what ultimately gets placed in the Xbox by voting in the Twitch Tuesday discussion topic! While you're over there, you can talk about what you'd like to see in the future and any feedback or suggestions you have for upcoming streams. I look forward to sharing some fun gaming moments with you all and hope I don't die too many times! Talk Back in our Forums
