Hot Bionicle News LEGO Cuusoo to Become LEGO Ideas
The LEGO Cuusoo team dropped a bombshell today - starting April 30th the site will be rebranded as LEGO Ideas and will finally leave its beta. You will be able to use your LEGO ID to log into the new site and connect it to your Cuusoo account to pull all of your existing projects, comments, votes, etc. over. As part of the new Terms of Service, projects will have one year to reach the 10,000 votes needed to enter review, otherwise they will expire and have to be resubmitted. On the plus side, fans aged 13-18 will now be able to submit projects. For more information on the change and what it means, head over to the Cuusoo site. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Summer 2014 LEGO Legends of Chima Official Images Found
The UK Amazon site has posted listings for this summer's Legends of Chima sets, as you can see on The Brick Fan. Although we posted images of most of these sets back in February during Toy Fair, there are now official hi-res images you can check out. Of note, the Chima constraction sets are listed there, even though the latest I have heard is that they are still not going to be released. I asked someone at LEGO, and they have not heard anything new on that front, so I would temper my expectations if you are really looking forward to those. Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower It means you're a baboon and I'm not...
[Source: Rhymes-Shelter]
The Lion King is far and away my favorite Disney movie, which meant when I saw a topic in the Bionicle-Based Creations forum titled 'Rafiki,' I set my hopes pretty high. Rhymes-Shelter did not disappoint, presenting an incredible representation of that lovable baboon. He uses some great techniques, such as dinosaur heads for the eyes and an Exo-Force click-joint for the nose, to capture the character from the movie near-perfectly. Check it out: you won't be disappointed! Talk Back in our Forums

Chima Month continues to roll on, and today it brings us another set review. BZPower Forum Assistant Sisen takes a look at 70129 Lavertus' Twin Blade from the LEGO Legends of Chima line. Will this set hover its way into your heart or will it crash and burn under a stinging attack? You'll have to read on to see and also to find out how you can win a copy yourself. Check it out!

Hot Bionicle News Upcoming LEGO Building Events
The LEGO Club website recently listed two upcoming building events. On Saturday, May 3rd (just in time for May the Fourth), Toys 'R' Us will host a Star Wars Mini TIE Fighter and Mini X-Wing building event from 12 to 2 PM. Then on Tuesday, May 6th at 5PM, you can head to your local LEGO Brand Retail store to build a free dragon model. Mark your calendars and head to your local stores next month for some free sets!

BZPower Check Out the ChiMechs
[Source: The Mugbearer]
We haven't had too many Chima-related MOCs outside our recent SBC contest, but last month BZPower Member The Mugbearer posted some cool creations he made with LEGO Digital Designer. His four ChiMechs represent the crocodile, wolf, lion, and eagle tribes and combine animal-like features with battle-ready mechs! The designs are pretty sweet, and I like the way that he incorporated a cockpit into each one. Check them out! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News More Batman Sets Coming?
We already talked about the 75th anniversary Batman Contest being hosted at several AFOL fan conventions throughout the year, but LEGO may not be done with its celebrations. A recent tweet may seem like just a funny image, but if you look closely, Batman is leaning against what appears to be the classic Batmobile from the 1966 TV series. Could this be an unannounced set to further along the anniversary party? We'll have to wait and see! Talk Back in our Forums


When times get tough, you get tougher. And that means bringing in some rhino Chima to take care of business and throw a few rocks around! LEGO was kind enough to provide Rogon's Rock Flinger for a BZPower review, and the rhinos deliver with their fierce armored vehicle. Read on, and watch the video, to see how thick the rhinos' hide is against a member of the spider tribe as we continue on with Chima Month on BZPower. Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

Hot Bionicle News Benny the Spaceman Cake
[Source: Nukaya]
Do you like cake? Me too! That's why I was excited to get cake for my birthday last month. Our resident bloggie Nukaya made a fantastic Benny the Spaceman cake to celebrate and took pictures to make everyone else jealous. That's handmade blue-chocolate pocky on the outside and, though you can't see or taste it, strawberry-rhubarb filling on the inside. I may be a little biased, but it tasted out-of-this-world.

[Source: Nuju Metru]
It's time to move onto some larger Chima sets to review. Today BZPower Forum Assistant Nuju Metru takes a look at 70130 Sparratus' Spider Stalker (okay, maybe not much larger). Will this webbed machine from LEGO Legends of Chima wrap you up? Or will you use your sting to free yourself of its web? More importantly, will you be the lucky one to win a free copy of the set? You'll have to continue on to watch the video and read the review to find out! Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story


Hot Bionicle News LEGO Mixels Series Two Pictures
[Source: The Phantom Terror]
While the instruction booklets of available Mixels already feature small pictures of the next two series and we saw photos in our Toy Fair coverage, The Brothers Brick reports that the first high-resolution images of the Mixels series two, featuring the colors orange, brown and blue, have surfaced. Series two is due for release in June and I can already spot some Mixels that will surely make their way to my desk. I'm particularly fond of Slumbo, pictured on the left, and his/her unique eye construction. Check it out! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Legends of Chima RPG Collaboration
We haven't forgotten that it's Chima month, and hopefully you haven't either. Today we're trying something new. Forum Assistant GSR recently kicked off The Chima RPG Collab Contest-esque Thing (Contesque?). What is that, you ask? Instead of having an RPG contest like in the Bionicle RPG forum, we're encouraging anyone and everyone to contribute to the creation of a single Legends of Chima RPG for all to play in. So check out the topic, put on your world-building hat, and get brainstorming! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Exclusive Beyond the Brick Clip on WSJ
Beyond the Brick: A Lego Brickumentary is a documentary around the culture and impact of LEGO toys. The film crew went to several fan conventions last year to interview AFOLs and see what they were all about and now the Wallstreet Journal has an exclusive clip of the final product. The completed film will debut at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month and is narrated by Jason Bateman. I'm really looking forward to this releasing to the public so I can enjoy it myself!

Market News Steam Sale on LEGO Games
The LEGO Games by Traveller's Tales always receive high marks, partly because they are good games and partly because it's fun to run around a LEGO environment as your favorite character in minifig form. As a "Midweek Madness" sale on the Steam PC platform, you can get such loved games like LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, LEGO Batman 1 and 2, LEGO Lord of the Rings and more for $5 each--that's 75% off! Hurry though, as this sale ends on Thursday at 4pm Pacific Time. Then get busy collecting those studs! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Check Out this Faber-ge Egg
Christian Faber recently added a new entry to his blog. It looks like he's working on the upcoming minifig-scale Minecraft sets, and has put together a teaser image for us all. The chocolate egg contains what Google tells me might be a Blaze being released by a minifig with a delightful pickaxe. It's cool to see he'll be working on this new line! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Cuusoo Exo Suit Logo
[Source: Shockwave and more]
We haven't heard much about the Exo Suit since it passed the Cuusoo review last fall, but now something new has popped up. The New Elementary has unveiled the new logo they are going to use for the set. Furthermore, he writes an excellent article on how LEGO and the AFOL community is working together to promote this future product. It's quite a good read, and certainly builds up the anticipation for the model, which is expected to be released in August. Make sure to check it out! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Invasion From Below Game Available on Windows Store
Microsoft TechNet blog The Fire Hose reports that the Hero Factory: Invasion from Below game has now become available for download in the Windows Store. It features everything the online version has except for LEGO ID sign-in, but this means you can now play the game on a Windows RT or 8.x tablet as well. It's obviously free but you will need over 300 MB of free space for the English version, which are mainly taken up by the cutscenes. This leaves only the Windows Phone version missing!

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Simpsons Minifigs in North America
Though the official release date for the new line of Simpsons collectible minifigs is this May, there may be a way to get your hands on some of them early: Some watchful members of the Lego community have reported seeing them pop up in Toys R Us and Wal-Mart stores across North America, going for a standard $3.97 apiece. Though I can't confirm this personally, it's worth checking your local retailer anyway, just in case. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News "LEGO Movie 2" Director Wants More Female Characters
Lady minifigs are a rare but welcome sight in many LEGO sets, and director Chris McKay said he wants to make that ratio more equal with The LEGO Movie 2. In an interview being reported, McKay cited the Bechdel test, a Hollywood gender bias test, as something to strive for and something that helped shape Wyldstyle and Unikitty into such "interesting" characters in the first film. Various articles explain this further, and we can expect some more lady minifigs to appear in the next LEGO movie. Until then, we'll just have to keep collecting those five versions of Unikitty!

Hot Bionicle News More Masks from Modalt
[Source: MrCod]
While painted and modified pieces are generally frowned down upon by the LEGO community, once in a while something exceptional comes up that truly does credit to the craft and shows us how beautiful non-production designs can be. These custom cut and painted masks by MrCod are precisely that exception. From reptilian armour sets to carefully rusted and corroded masks, his work defines the high end of the medium. Check it out!

[Source: Another Chir Brother]
Not too long ago we reported about the Ninjago song 'After the Blackout' by The Fold becoming available for download. Well, it turns out the band has released an official music video now. I'm no expert on music videos, but this one has some really enjoyable visuals and if you enjoyed the song, you'll certainly enjoy the video as well. I'm humming the song as I write this.

Hot Bionicle News Free LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Poster at LEGO Stores
For the rest of the month, visitors to the LEGO Store can get a free Marvel Super Heroes poster. Participants just have to take their picture with a cardboard cutout of a minifig hero on display at the store and share it online with the hashtag #LEGOStore to receive a fun poster! I was able to receive a Spider-Man poster, but no word on if there is more than one hero to get.
