Game pictures, and where we got them

Here are a few more BIONICLE: The Game screenshots, featuring Lewa and Kopaka. Bringing this series to a conclusion, we'll also share where these great images came from.

"With your shield or on it, soldier." Kopaka's main method of transportation, according to the various images we've seen, is to slide down the snowy slopes of Mt. Ihu on his shield.
On to where we got these little gems. Last May, the Electronic Entertainment Exposition (E3) brought together the major players in video game development, among other things, for three days of elbow rubbing and marketing shmoozing. Electronic Arts, publisher of LEGO's upcoming Bionicle: The Game title, was of course in attendance, providing various press packs and informative kits for other attendees. One of the info kits found its way to BZPower, and we've been mining it for some of the best stuff.
We actually received two separate presentations: one for the movie, and one for the video game. The vid game folder contained a CD-ROM which we'd hoped would include a demo of the game itself. No such luck (my children were not happy about that). It did include several screenshots and MPG movies from the DTV movie and video game, which we've shared with you.
Some of the info in the other brochure was impressive yet boring marketing verbage aimed at advertisers and retail outlets. "Unleash the Power of Bionicle" it says, and goes on to describe how successful the line has been (as if we didn't know). Some of the background images were intriguing, so we scanned them and put them up for you, including the first one, the Kolhii match. The back features Jaller and Takua on the Gukko Bird.
