Today we have another set review for you all, one that's more in our traditional wheelhouse. BZPower Forum Assistant Nuju Metru is taking a look at the largest Star Wars Buildable Figures set to date: 75532 Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike. This is the first time we've gotten a large-scale Star Wars vehicle and figure and hopefully it won't be the last. To see if this is a set to pick up and swoosh around or to skip in lieu of smaller sets, read on to check out our text and video reviews! Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

BZPower Happy Anniversary BZPower!
Sixteen years ago a little site by the name of Bionicle Zone made its debut on the web, touting itself as a place to talk about a new LEGO theme. Bionicle has come and gone twice now, but here we are still enjoying one another's company and having fun! I'd like to thank you all for making BZP a great community that brings happiness to me and others every day. As is our tradition, we'll be enabling Premier Membership perks for everyone later today as our small way of saying thanks. If you've been holding off on purchasing a Premier Membership, we're also offering 10% off in our store when you use coupon code 'BZPSWEET16' during checkout. Wwe have some more things planned, but it's been a busy time for us recently, so you may have to wait until the weekend for them. Thank you all once again, and let's hope for many more years of fun to come! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Bfahome Twists the Plot
We've made it to that time of month again when it's time for a new episode of Bfa Plays, where Bfahome continues to work his way through LEGO Harry Potter. In Episode 12: Tom Riddle Me This, he must first test his skills against Moaning Myrtle before entering into a flashback to learn about Tom Riddle and share some spoilers! When you're done watching, make sure you head over to the discussion topic to leave you feedback and let us know what you'd like to see us play in the future. We'll be back in just a couple of weeks with the next episode, so stay tuned! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Turning Back Time
I have a feeling that the next few spotlights we shine on member creations are going to draw from The Legend Continues contest, which really brought out the best and most creative sides of many members. For instance, today we're showing off Tapestry of Time by Pomegranate, which highlights their wish that the two halves of the Mask of Time had been connected in the new story, tying the two generations together. I love the rendering of Tahu and the stream of time coming out of the Vahi - when I first saw it, I didn't even realize that it was in chronological order! It's a great tribute to the theme and certainly worth checking out. Make sure you share your thoughts on the creation with Pomegranate too! Talk Back in our Forums

The Scuttler was a prominent vehicle in the movie and is a bit different than we usually see with Batman's vehicles, but how does the set itself hold up? Read on or watch the video review to find out, and get a chance to win some Batman Collectible Minifigures. Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

Hot Bionicle News Better Know a Ninja
The release date for The LEGO Ninjago Movie is fast approaching and with that we can expect more information about the film to trickle out. For instance, USA Today shared some character posters recently that at the very least help you remember what element each ninja is the elemental master of. The article also reveals that in this movie, not everything will be built out of bricks, unlike The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie. I'm not sure if that's just the change they need or if it will be too much of a departure from the earlier entries in the series. Let us know what you think in the Talkback! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Brick Factor Philadelphia Photos
For your consideration this Sunday: a look (through my photo album on Flickr) at Merlin Entertainment's Brick Factor competition in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, which served as a job interview for the Master Model Builder for the "Philadelphia" LEGOLAND Discovery Center. Over 500 photos show the first day of the contest that ultimately made BZPower member Mike "retinence" Nieves the face of the Discovery Center. We're a little late sharing these photos (the contest was in December, when details of the attraction's interior were sparse) - the grand opening was in April and you can actually buy tickets to see Mike at the Philadelphia-area attraction now.

BZPower From LMOTD to BZPower
After over 10 years of existence, the end of early MOC-blog LMOTD was announced yesterday. A timeline recapping the history of the blog marks the occasion of the 10th anniversary and the decision to wind it down. Buried in those two articles is a bit of BZPower news - since the founder of LMOTD is now on the BZPower news team (and no longer split between the two outlets), we'll feature more MOC, news, and event coverage here going forward.

Hot Bionicle News What Does it Take to Build Lady Liberty?
If you're in the Washington DC area, or plan to visit in the next year, you might want to schedule a trip to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History and check out the new, "The Nation We Build Together" exhibit. Featured prominently is a nine foot tall model of the Statue of Liberty, made from LEGO bricks and built by LEGO master builder Erik Varszgi. USA Today talked to Erik about the process to design and build the replica. It's definitely something I'd like to see in person, if only to be jealous of all that sand green! Talk Back in our Forums

Everyone always wants to know what sets The LEGO Group is releasing next, and today we've gotten a peek into the future! Forbes has shared a batch of images and information on a collection of DC Superheroes sets that are scheduled to be released in 2018.

BZPower Three... Two... One... Blast Off!
LEGO recently sent BZPower a large selection of sets for us to use in various activities over the next few months, and we asked on social media which of three sets you'd like to see us build this weekend. The results are in, and this Saturday, July 15th, at 6 PM Eastern, we'll be building 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V from the LEGO Ideas line! I'm super excited to ramble on about the Apollo program and the space race for however long it takes me to put the 1969 pieces together, interspersed by me giving away some prizes to our viewers! You can catch all the action on the BZPower YouTube channel. I look forward to seeing you all there this weekend for what's sure to be a great build! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Strength in Numbers
The Legend Continues contest got a great variety of entries with all of the different takes on what people would have liked to see in the second generation of Bionicle. For Sparkytron, it meant going back to some Gen 2 concept art for the first wave of villains and creating Kulta Kal and the Skeleton Army. Individually the builds might not be the most impressive, but I feel like they do a great job of capturing the design mentality of Bionicle and utilizing the CCBS elements. What's even greater is that they all combine into one super-villain, a play feature that has been a part of Bionicle since 2001. Go give the models a closer look and let Sparkytron know what you think! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Twitch Tuesday
Tonight we'll be kicking off our weekly gaming stream a little later than usual, but it should still be a blast. Head on over to our Twitch channel at 8 PM Eastern to watch us have some LEGO videogame fun. You can help us decide what to play by heading over to the Twitch Tuesday discussion topic and casting your vote! Whatever it is that we play it should be a lot of fun and I look forward to sharing the experience with you! Talk Back in our Forums
