Hot Bionicle News LEGO Chocolate
[Source: The Phantom Terror]
Japanese illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi has combined two of the most popular things of the world into one with his molds for edible LEGO bricks out of chocolate. Bricks come in white, pink and several shades of brown and in several basic shapes to make your chocolate eating experience even more fun. Just make sure to make your chocolate creation not too cool or you'll not want to eat it (in which case it may melt, so you're left with nothing). Unfortunately, the chocolate bricks are not on sale yet, but you never know what could happen when LEGO executives feel a sudden appetite for chocolate... Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Ambassador Network Update
[Source: Keith Severson]
Back in May we shared news about the upcoming revamp to the LEGO Ambassador Program which will now be entitled the LEGO Ambassador Network (LAN). Over at the LEGO Community Team Blog, Keith Severson has made a post updating us on the timeline of the new program. Additionally, he has announced the first batch of LAN Workgroup Leaders, of which I am happily a part of. Among other things, this means that when the LAN kicks off, BZPower will have a new Ambassador - none other than Forum Administrator Tufi Piyufi! I look forward to helping get the new program on its feet and working with Jen and all the other Ambassadors to help strengthen the LEGO community. If you are a part of any other LUGs or LEGO communities, please pass this info on so we can get maximum participation in the program. Talk Back in our Forums

The next episode of Legends of Chima airs on Cartoon Network tomorrow morning. 'Call of Cavora' will start at 7:30 AM Eastern, but you should check the full schedule to see when it will run in your time zone. Last time we saw our heroes experience ice for the first time - maybe this week we'll get some fire to help thaw them out? Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower What Are Your Thoughts on the LEGO Magazine?
It looks like LEGO has plans to change how the LEGO Club Magazine works. Starting later this year in some countries and next year in others, people over the age of 13 will no longer be able to have a subscription to the magazine. The LEGO CEE Team wants the fan community's feedback on this change, so we've started a topic to do just that. Go vote in the poll and share your thoughts on these changes - will you miss not being able to get the magazine? Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Micro-Bionicle Batch 1 by bonesiii
[Source: bonesiii]
Our Perpetual Master of Reference has assembled a cute collection of small representations of all sorts of Rahi, built with system pieces in the extended mode of the LEGO Digital Designer. One of my favourite types of MOC is building a small representation of something larger by using the right pieces in clever ways. The results are pretty impressive and really convincing, like the Nui-Jaga, the Tarakava, Manas and others. As a bonus there is also a recreation of the Kini-Nui temple. Be sure to let bonesiii know your thoughts and perhaps you'll feel inspired to create your own micro-bonkles! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Construction of the LEGO House Begins
You've seen our review of 4000010 LEGO House, but now it appears that construction on the actual house is underway! As The Newsmarket reports, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen and the rest of the founding family was on hand to lay the six foundation stones that represent the values LEGO is based on: imagination, creativity, fun, learning, caring, and quality. The 12,000 meter-squared building will open in 2016 for fans of all ages to visit and enjoy! Talk Back in our Forums

Today brings another BZPower set review to the front page, this time one of the LEGO Ideas sets - 21109 Exo-Suit! One of the first ideas not based on a licensed theme, the Exo-Suit was greatly anticipated by a lot of AFOLs. Now that it's on shelves (or was, since it seems to be sold out in many places), how does it stack up? You'll have to continue on to read and watch our review to find out!

BZPower Shadow of a Hero
BZPower Member Keyblade87 had an interesting idea for a photo, so he grabbed a couple sets, a camera, and a copy of Photoshop to create Shadow of a Hero. While the idea is simple, the execution is great and it really brings back some memories from 2007. I like the posing of Matoro Mahri especially as it looks like he's shouldering a heavy burden while he slowly walks towards his destiny. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Makes Wish Come True
Niagara This Week has a touching story that should remind us all why LEGO is such a great company. Daniel Catapano is currently fighting a brain tumor that has left him unable to do basic math - but he can still build. A huge fan of Bionicle, Daniel was able to make a trip to Billund, Denmark through the Children's Wish Foundation, where LEGO surprised him by bringing in all of the company's senior set designers to meet him and look at his creations. It's always awesome to see someone's dream come true and we wish Daniel the best of luck in overcoming his tumor. Talk Back in our Forums

Spikels Mixels Teaser Image

The third wave of Mixels is starting to hit stores, so it's time for another BZPower set review. BZP Reporter Xccj managed to grab the three Mixels from the tan Spikels tribe, including 41521: Footi, 41522: Scorpi, and 41523: Hoogi. Should you claw your way through the crowd to get your hands on these, or are they best left in the dust? Read on to find out! Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

Hot Bionicle News LEGO and PNY Announce Branded Flash Drives
Earlier this week LEGO and PNY announced a partnership whereby PNY will sell USB Flash Drives in the shape of everyone's favorite building brick. The drives come in 8 and 16 GB sizes and in blue, red, and yellow colors. They look almost exactly like a 2x4 brick and are completely compatible with your brick collection. This looks like a great product for LEGO fans who need to take their files on the go - I just wish they offered larger sizes! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Ninjago Blooper Reel
A new video was posted on the official LEGO YouTube channel recently - a LEGO Ninjago Exclusive Blooper Reel! Go watch the minifigs that play your favorite characters from the Ninjago TV show get in the recording booth and take direction and deliver their lines. It's a pretty funny look behind the scenes and definitely gives a new perspective to the series. It's clear that the people behind the show had a lot of fun with this! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Check Out the BrickMap
As a result of a project kicked off by Yun Mi Antorini, the Community Strategist of LEGO CEE Team, a group of AFOLs have created the BrickMap, a listing of LEGO-related sites on the Internet. The listing includes all sorts of categories, from parts databases to brick stores to fan events to custom element creators to fansites like BZPower! I'm happy to say that I was able to contribute to the initial listing, but now that it's online, anyone can help add new sites or update existing ones. This should hopefully be a great resource for the LEGO community, so make sure you add it to your bookmarks! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower BZPower Livestream Tomorrow

X-Men vs The Sentinel Teaser Image
If there was any Marvel franchise that needed more LEGO love, it was the X-Men. And finally they've delivered, with this summer's 76022: X-Men vs The Sentinel! It features some of our favorite characters, as well as the evil Sentinel and the Blackbird jet! And BZPower Reporter Xccj is going to review it. Is this a set worth sinking your claws into, or should you just storm off and forget about it? Read on to find out. Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

BZPower There's one other name you might know me by... Star Lord
Guardians of the Galaxy is well on its way to being one of the top-grossing movies of the year, and it's clearly an inspiration to LEGO fans out there. Case in point, BZPower Reporter Kakaru recently posted his take on Peter Quill aka Star Lord on BZPower's Flickr Group. You can check out a couple of the pictures here and here. Micah does a great job capturing a human character using constraction and System pieces, especially the details of the helmet and head. It's an amazing creation that will get you hooked on a feeling of awesomeness! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower An Explosive Mosaic
A few years ago we saw a new type of LEGO mosaic storm the convention circuit. Made up of thousands of cheese slopes, these lenticular mosaics show two different images when viewed from the left or the right. Enamored by these designs, BZPower Reporter xccj amassed the 4,608 slopes he needed to build a 48-by-96 stud Mt. St. Helens Lenticular Mosaic. The piece depicts the famous volcano before and after erupting, looking serene and beautiful from the left and belching ash and lava on the right. It's a great juxtaposition and is executed well. I look forward to seeing it in person some day! Talk Back in our Forums

Brickset has posted about a new Hero Factory beast polybag set found on the Russian site Mir Kubikov. It appears to include a small crawling version of Crystal Beast, and also includes a red mini jumper. It looks like a nice little impulse set, and hopefully it'll start appearing elsewhere around the world for fans to collect. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Release Date for Lonely Mountain Revealed
Back before Comic Con the news broke about 79018 The Lonely Mountain, the next set in The Hobbit line. More recently, on The Hobbit minisite on LEGO.com, the page for the set has been updated to indicate that the set will be available starting October 15th. This is interesting timing, since the next movie doesn't come out until December 17th in the US. I'm sure there will be plenty of marketing in advance of the film that will help drive sales of the set. You've got over two months to save up! Talk Back in our Forums
