Aptera
BZPower Bug-Eyed Aptera Stares You Down
Member Brickeens admits that he has taken a two year absence from the MOCing scene, but his recent creation Aptera shows that he is back in full-swing as the Bionicle resurgence news reaches new hype levels. While the MOC lacks a backstory, which I imagine involves an alien bug-jungle tribe and maybe the Galaxy Squad, it is not without character. The head stands out especially, but the way the armored legs contrast with the lanky yet clawed arms is also worth noting, along with lime green on the black figure. Check it out!

Hot Bionicle News BIONICLE Books to Return Next Year?
[Source: Greg Farshtey]
Former BIONICLE comic and book author Greg Farshtey has stated in the "Chat with Greg Farshtey" topic in the LEGO Message Boards that "[his] understanding is there will be books at some point next year, but [he does] not know if a writer has been selected for them yet." BIONICLE books were the main medium of storytelling from 2004 to 2008 and it's interesting to see them return despite declining sales in the end, but whether they tell the main plot or just side stories as well as who's going to write them remain to be seen. Still, BIONICLE's return is getting more exciting with every reveal! Talk Back in our Forums

Market News Free Chima Polybag at TRU

Hot Bionicle News BIONICLE Website Found
[Source: TBK & A BZPower Reader]
Don't get your hopes up, there isn't much at all to see yet but what there is to see is still pretty nice anyway. BZPower member TBK reports that for a short time frame, a new BIONICLE website was accessible through http://www.lego.com/en-us/bionicle. That link doesn't work anymore but the website still works here. It's really just a new picture of the Mask of Creation so far but it's nice to see that everyone's favorite website (after BZPower of course ;)) is so close to making its comeback.

Friday, September 19, 2014
You've heard the rumors, you've seen the leaks, but now it's official: BIONICLE IS BACK! LEGO is officially announcing the return of Bionicle today along with some details about the Mask of Creation - yes you read that right. More information will be revealed at New York Comic Con, but you can read on to see what they've said so far. I am now officially pumped!

We don't know yet what it is, but a reveal of BIONICLE seems quite possible. Either way, there'll surely be a good reason to check the BZPower news this Friday, so stay tuned! -- Adrian

It's definitely a unique project, and I wish it the best of luck! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Nathan Sawaya Exhibit Opening in London
American LEGO-artist Nathan Sawaya is heading to London, England, for his first exhibit in Britain this month. One of a dozen LEGO Certified Professionals worldwide, Sawaya is best known for his large statues and sculptures, including giving Stephen Colbert a life-like statue of the comedian on his show, all made from LEGO bricks. His "Art of the Brick" exhibit opens on September 26 at The Old Truman Brewery in east London. "Part of my mission is to make art accessible," Sawaya said in an interview with The Independent, knowing people will have the same brick medium at home after being inspired by his display. Having been to an amazing LCP exhibit myself for Adam Reed Tucker, I can only hope that everyone takes this chance to see Sawaya's work up close who can. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Enter The Brown Ninja
[Source: BZPower Members]
A new Ninjago polybag has appeared, and surprisingly it contains a brand new character: Dareth, the Brown Ninja! Dareth is a secondary character from the show, but it's still great to see him availible as an actual minifigure. You also get an additional Nindroid fig for him to fight in the polybag, as well as a trophy. Currently, the polybag has only been found at Toys R Us locations in the UK, but hopefully there will be a wider release so we can all get our hands on the Brown Ninja!

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Top Toy Brand in UK
The Licensing Industry Merchandisers' Association (LIMA) recently released the results of a survey they conducted to determine the top toy brands, both around the world and in the UK specifically. Across the pond, LEGO came is as the top brand for boys and the number three brand for girls. Additionally, LEGO Friends is the number six brand for girls. The only other brand to appear on both lists is Mickey Mouse, putting our favorite bricks in good company - it's no wonder they're the world's largest toy company! Talk Back in our Forums

Opinion Remember
Let us not forget what happened thirteen years ago today. We were here at Kanohi-Power and BionicleZone back then, and we all lived though 9/11/01 as a community. Thirteen years later, we are still here, members are still here -- and the site, the members, and the world are just a little less innocent because of that day exactly thirteen years ago. The world is now different, as is our community that has lived through a difficult time - it is important to remember all those who lost their lives. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Preorder Ninjago Soundtrack
[Source: Aanchir]
The Ninjago television Show has had some great music in the past, but there was no easy way for you to listen to it outside of the episodes. Well, that will come to an end soon, as an official soundtrack is now available for preorder on Amazon. The music by Jay Vincent and Michael Kramer will be on an audio CD and currently costs $13.98. It looks like most of the tracks are from the first season, so hopefully future albums will come out to cover the rest of the music from the show. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Darth Vader's Star Destroyer on Kickstarter
Thomas Benedikt from Toronto, Canada, asks for your pledges on Kickstarter to construct a 13-feet Darth Vader's Star Destroyer out of 90k LEGO bricks. Unfortunately, it won't be life-sized but still impressive enough to blow your socks off. After spending over 1000 hours in creating a digital model, Thomas is now ready to construct the physical thing - if he reaches his goal of $15,500 CAD, which will be 60% of the cost; the rest he will pay himself. Backers will get a number of benefits. Check out the Kickstarter page if you want to back this impressive, 100kg/200 pound LEGO creation or if you just want to see some stats and renderings.

BZPower Visit the Dragon Lands
BZPower Forum Assistant Nuju Metru is no stranger to creating interesting settings, and recently he has put that talent to good use making his own playtheme. "(Not) LEGO Dragon Lands" focuses on the Kingdom of Ardun and the orc-like Ustokal of the Essoni Desert, who are locked in a savage conflict. Okay, maybe not savage, since this is LEGO, but Aaron has created ten MOCs based on this concept that fit into the sizes you commonly see in LEGO sets. Each creation features custom minifigs and awesome play features, just like you would expect from a set you pick up off the shelf at Toys 'R' Us. It's an interesting idea with a great execution that is definitely worth checking out! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News BIONICLE Confirmed for 2015
When LEGO started building its websites for next year, they didn't consider me and my masterful skills of educated URL guessing. This picture is already on the servers of LEGO.com and will be a thumbnail on the LEGO.com Products section linking to BIONICLE.com when it returns. At this point I think we can state without a doubt that BIONICLE is indeed returning next year. What does that golden mask represent, though? Let the speculation begin! Of course, I'll keep you updated if I happen to find more images like this. Talk Back in our Forums

Sunday, September 7, 2014
There's a huge demand in the LEGO community for pieces that the company just doesn't make. Look around the Internet (or go to a comprehensive listing like BrickMap) and you'll see a lot of places that offer products that are compatible with LEGO bricks, whether they be brand new pieces, custom-painted or decaled, or existing pieces molded in a new color. Some fans even turn to competitors such as Mega Bloks and KRE-O to get elements that are compatible with LEGO bricks but in new and different shapes. What if LEGO decided to put together an offering to allow its fans to create their own elements? I have reason to believe that they might be doing just that - read on to see why!

Groot smile

Marvel Studio's latest film Guardians of the Galaxy is still doing well at the box office, and with characters like Groot and Rocket Raccoon that is no surprise.

Watch the video and read the review to see what is so great about this playset, and say it with me: I am Groot! Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story
