BZPower A Fan Ending to Generation 1
Even though the second generation of Bionicle has been around for two years now, the ten years of Gen 1 have left a lasting impression on many fans. Wiriamu is one such person, and he has taken up the task to provide an ending to the original story in his epic, BIONICLE: Battle for Spherus Magna. It doesn't strictly follow the canon, but the author does his best to incorporate bits of information gleaned from Greg Farshtey over the years, along with some nods to Gen 2 and fan fiction too. If you've been following the story, Chapter 11 was posted recently, so now's the time to catch up! Make sure you head on over to the review topic to let Wiriamu know what you think and provide some feedback. Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Tonight is Twitch Tuesday
It's that time of week again, being Tiw's Day going back to the Middle English, which means we will be playing some LEGO videogames tonight. It seems apt since Tiw is the god of single combat, and we will singly be fighting brick-baddies on our Twitch channel. Voting is still going on over in the discussion topic, so help us decide if we'll be fighting goblins, Stormtroopers, super-villains, or micro-managers and share your feedback on the stream. Then, you can tune in at around 7:30 PM Eastern to watch the fun take place. It's likely to be a shorter stream, since I need to get ready for BrickFair New Jersey, but we'll do our best to cram in as much as possible. Make sure you follow us on Twitch or Twitter to be notified exactly when we go live, and I'll see you all tonight! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News What LEGO Sets Do While You're Not Around
Did you ever imagine that LEGO sets might have their own hopes, dreams, and aspirations? Well apparently 42046 Getaway Racer from this year's Technic assortment does, as we can see in a just-released video from LEGO featuring the model. Left to its own devices in a garage, the car gets a bit excited while watching some racing and decides to try its hand at burning rubber and making the slicks spin. It's a fun piece of animation and a pretty adorable little video. Give it a watch and let us know what you think in the Talkback! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Durin's Bane
It was an awesome period when LEGO was making sets based on J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, and while we got some great models including one based on Moria, we sadly never saw an official Balrog. Don't worry though - Nuju Metru has us covered. Head over to the System-Based Creations forum and check out The Balrog of Moria, his take on the famous fantasy foe. Aaron uses everything from click-hinges to Mixel joints to CCBS ball-and-sockets to give his creation 39 points of articulation, which gives it the range of movement to take on a wide variety of poses. The beast certainly captures the look and scale of its companions seen on screen in Peter Jackson's films and in the renderings of artists like John Howe, with obvious accommodations made for the medium. So go give the MOC a look and then let Nuju Metru know what you think about it! Talk Back in our Forums

The pictorial language of LEGO building instructions has long helped make LEGO sets accessible to fans regardless of age, language, or reading ability. Even so, they are generally not of any use to the blind. To tackle this obstacle, blind LEGO fan Matthew Shifrin and his friend Lilya started a project called LEGO for the Blind, transcribing the visual instructions as text for use by other vision-impaired builders. Matthew was recently interviewed about this project and his experiences with congenital blindness for the PBS digital series BrainCraft.

Yesterday we shared the news of 10255 Assembly Square, the latest in the series of modular buildings in the Creator Expert theme. If you've paid attention to the past modulars, you probably saw some little winks and nods to the older sets thrown into the square, but I'm sure you didn't catch them all. Thankfully LEGO Designer Jamie Berard has passed on a list of all of the references and inspirations, which we're presenting to you today. In addition, we have the designer video where Jamie shows off the set and some of the awesome details. Come check it out! Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story
