BZPower The Power of the Brick Side
For the past few years we've held building contests in conjunction with BrickFair Virginia, one of the largest LEGO fan conventions in the country, taking place on the first week of August. This year is no different, except that the contest coincides with some interest from LEGO in getting word of the latest LEGO Star Wars sets out to the biggest constraction fans out there. As a result, we have Official BBC Contest #74: The Dark Side of the Brick! which challenges you to build a big, bad, evil villain-type character from that galaxy so far, far away. Finalists will send their creations to BrickFair Virginia to be voted on in person for some awesome prizes from LEGO, but everyone is encouraged to send their MOCs to display and will get a free set for doing so. You have until 11:59 PM on Monday, July 10th to submit your entry, so go check out the rules and then get building! Talk Back in our Forums

Trooper head
He may have a blaster rifle, but can he hit anything? We better hope so, as he is the Stormtrooper Commander, and the latest subject of our reviews of the Star Wars constraction sets. Straight from the classic Star Wars film, he leads an army known for missing their targets and hitting their heads on the tops of door frames. But is he competent enough to break the mold? Read, and watch, the review to find out! Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

BZPower Twitch Tuesday
We've made it through the week and back around to Tuesday everyone - congratulations! That means starting at 7:30 PM Eastern tonight you'll be able to find us over on the BZPower Twitch Channel streaming some LEGO videogame fun. The past couple of weeks we've been checking out LEGO City Undercover which has been a big departure from other games by TT Games with its big open world map instead of individual levels. We're open to suggestions though, and you can make your voice heard by voting in the Twitch Tuesday discussion topic and sharing any other feedback you might have. Whatever we play, we'll see you tonight and hope it's a fun one for us all! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Gali Nuva Comes to Life
This community never ceases to amaze me with the quality of the creations they share. Take for example Toa Gali Nuva 3D Artwork/Poster by 00dude00, which is an amazing rendering of our favorite Toa of Water that looks like she could jump out of the screen and into the real world. I love the texture on the metal and the subtle integration of the LEGO parts like gears and pistons into the design. It's incredible what you can do with free software tools like Blender and GIMP! Make sure you go check out the hi-res version to soak up all the details and then let 00dude00 know what you think! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News How The LEGO Batman Movie Should Have Ended
Often times there are plot point in movies that don't necessarily make logical sense and are done more for dramatic effect or character development. The folks over at How It Should Have Ended do a great job of picking these apart and making funny takes on the conclusions to many popular films. Recently they collaborated with Eric Beaton and the team at Beaton Films to create How The LEGO Batman Movie Should Have Ended with some great stop motion animation and their trademark brand of humor. Go give it a watch and let us know what you think about it in the Talkback! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Ideas Update
We've got a couple of nice upates today on the LEGO Ideas front. Earlier this week, Brett Cuviello of the Iron Giant project was interviewed for the 10k Club. Give it a read to find out how a Bionicle fan ended up with a project that's being considered for a LEGO set! More recently, The Wonders of Peru achieved its own milestone of ten thousand votes, meaning it will enter the next review phase. It's definitely an interesting project and I'm curious to see how it turns out. Would you buy the Iron Giant or Wonders of Peru if they made it into sets? Let us know in the Talkback!

Goblin
It takes a brave soul to wander around in the land of Elves and Magic. Luckily our heroes Azari and Farran can be counted on for a little adventure. Their pets seem to be lost and trapped in the Goblin Village, and it is up to these two to rescue them! Today we review an Elves set, Magic Rescue from the Goblin Village, to see if the two can be successful in saving their friends from this tiny treacherous town, or if we should just let them be gobbled up by the carnivorous plants. Read, and watch, on to find out! Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

With E3 going on, there's been a lot of videogame news coming out the past few days. Titles made by TT Games have been a staple of the LEGO portfolio for years now, and 2017 is no exception. We'll do our best to cover all the important updates from the show, and to start things off we have a press release for LEGO Worlds! On July 5th the first DLC is coming out, based on Classic Space! Additionally, the game will be releasing on Nintendo Switch later this year, expanding the number of people who have access to it. For the full press release and Classic Space trailer, read on!

BZPower Please Obey All Traffic Signals
Not every hero that comes out of the Hero Factory can be a William Furno or a Preston Stormer. For every one of them I'm sure there's at least a dozen like Officer Quill, but if they're all as cool as Anaru_LST's creation I won't complain one bit. Personally, I tend to be a purist, but the paint job on this MOC really helps bring the creation together. I love the wheeled feet too, even if it means he needs a little bit of a stand to stay up. So go check it out in the Bionicle Based Creations forum and let the builder know what you think! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Tune-in to Twitch Tuesday
It's that most wonderful day of the week - it's Tuesday! I know I always look forward to that because it means it's not Monday anymore and also because I get to play some videogames and stream them for you all! We'll be heading over to the BZPower Twitch Channel at 7:30 PM Eastern Time to kick off the action. Although we started LEGO City Undercover last week, it doesn't mean it's what we'll play tonight - you can head over to the Twitch Tuesday discussion topic to vote for what you want to see us play! If we do end up back in Undercover, I will do my best to work on my driving - hopefully by the time I get through the game I'll have gotten the hang of things... Talk Back in our Forums
