Vermillion Invader Teaser Image
Before the new LEGO Ninjago Movie comes out next month, it's important to remember that the standard Ninjago theme got one round of sets out earlier this year with the Hands of Time theme. Today, BZPower Reporter Xccj looked at 70624: Vermillion Invader, one of the mid-priced sets featuring Zane and an enemy vehicle. Does this set strike just the right cord, or are you better off saving up for the sets from the upcoming movie? Read on and watch the video to find out. Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

BZPower Build Like a Freemaker this Weekend
After a bit of a break thanks to BrickFair Virginia, it's time for us to get back into the live-building groove. So this Saturday, August 19th at 6 PM Eastern, we'll be live again on the BZPower YouTube channel to assemble some sets! We have all five of the LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures sets from both last year and this year and hope to share them all with you and talk about the show. Of course there will be some giveaways, both of Star Wars buildable figures and some more uncommon polybags, so it should be worth your while to tune in. I look forward to seeing you all there!

BZPower A Decade Ago on an Island Far Away
LEGO photography can be as important as the build itself, whether it be a monochromatic background highlighting the creation or a more elaborate piece of scenery. GusH958 went and found some areas in the great outdoors that reminded him of Voya Nui, the setting of the 2006 Bionicle storyline. What follows are his 2006 Scenery Images, a collection of shots featuring the Matoran, Piraka, and Toa Inika. I enjoy the composition of the photos, and the light amount of editing gives them a hint of realism. If anything, the pictures highlight some of the shortcomings of the old set designs, which certainly isn't his fault. Which one is your favorite, and what other characters would you like to see brought into the real world? Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Another 10k Spotlight
It's Monday which means it's time for a new 10k Club interview over on LEGO Ideas. Hasan Jensen has once again sat down with another lucky builder: in this case it's Garett Yoshimura. Go give 10K Club Interview: Meet Garett Yoshimura of Sega Classic Arcade Machines a read to find out what inspired him to create his project and how he made it successful. You can also learn some more about Garett, his history with the brick, and all sorts of other interesting tidbits! The diversity of builders in these interviews is always great to see, and I look forward to see what next week brings! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Looking into Biomaterials to Replace Their Plastics
The LEGO Group has been making headlines lately as they keep working to improve their carbon footprint on the planet, like the early arrival of their renewable energy goal. Another goal gaining traction is their research into plastic-like materials, some bioplastics or similar that will uphold LEGO's standard for safety, quality, and durability and still interlock with today's bricks. Read more here on how LEGO continues to make strides in improving their business while maintaining their brand. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News The LEGO Ninjago Movie Stunts With Jackie Chan
People has posted a new featurette for the upcoming LEGO Ninjago Movie featuring Jackie Chan and his stunt team. He talks about how he choreographed the sequences from his stunt team to the LEGO minifigures, with some nice clips showing the martial artists' moves next to the animated ninjas. It looks like they really are going above and beyond to make this movie great. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Group Announces New CEO
Just over eight months ago, LEGO announced a major restructure that included the appointment of Bali Padda as CEO of The LEGO Group. Today they shared that Niels B. Christiansen will take the reins as of October 1st of this year. While this seems like a sudden change, it makes sense, as Bali Padda had said publicly at BrickFair New England that he had been planning his retirement prior to being asked to be CEO. Christiansen has years of experience with the family-owned, Danish company Danfoss and has helped that company grow and evolve with the times. Let's hope he is able to do the same for The LEGO Group!

Hot Bionicle News Search Your Feelings for an Awesome Creation
It feels like it's been nearly a month since the last project on LEGO Ideas achieved ten thousand votes of support, but that wait is now over! Go check out I Am Your Father by szabomate90, the newest addition to the 10k club. While I don't foresee it becoming an actual LEGO model since it's based on Star Wars - an active LEGO license - it's certainly an awesome depiction of one of the most iconic scenes in movie history. My favorite part is the sloping of the structure that the catwalk comes out of with all of its interesting compound angles. Even if it doesn't pass muster, perhaps we'll see the moment captured in a normal LEGO Star Wars set at some point soon! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Ruler of the Skies
There's a lot of subject matters that can be used as inspiration for LEGO creations. Earlier in the year, we highlighted Mohamed Marei's Anubis MOC, and a few months later, his renditions of Egyptian gods continues with Horus, God of Skies. Using all of the parts at his disposal, from newer CCBS pieces to Ben 10 buildable figure elements, the figure is instantly recognizable with its tan human body and falcon head. Let's not overlook the clever use of fabric and System pieces as well to add some great details like the ankh and loincloth. Give it a closer look and let the builder know what you think!

Hot Bionicle News Bfahome Squashes Spiders
We're a bit behind on some things thanks to BrickFair, but we're working to catch up! On August 5th a new episode of Bfa Plays was released, continuing Bfahome's adventures in LEGO Harry Potter. Go check out Episode 13: This Episode is Full of Spiders, whose title is pretty self-explanatory, if you ask me. When you're done watching all of the spiders getting chopped up, head on over to the discussion topic to share your thoughts on the episode. We'll be back in a mere twelve days with our next installment, so we'll see you all then! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower Twitch Tuesday is Back

Join us at the usual time - 7:30 PM Eastern - at the usual place - the BZPower Twitch Channel - as we take on a game of your choosing. We'd love to hear what you want to see us play or to give us any feedback on the show by heading to the Twitch Tuesday discussion topic and chiming in. As always, we look forward to testing our mettle and hanging out with you all. See you in a few hours! Talk Back in our Forums

With the new LEGO Ninjago Movie sets coming out, the LEGO Brand Stores are going all out to make sure that visitors get the Ninjago experience. Part of this involved a handout they're giving to customers, which includes a checklist of activities to do in the store. But the most interesting bit is the inclusion of a Ninja Language Decoder. Read on for some scans of the handout. Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story
