Please go vote? :)

I didn't have a good track record this year. Let's look at the numbers:

  • BrickFair Alabama ended on January 20, 2013; coverage was posted on February 8, 2013 - difference: 19 days
  • BrickFair New England ended on May 12, 2013; coverage was posted on July 23, 2013 - difference: 72 days
  • BrickFair Virginia ended on August 4, 2013; coverage was posted on December 23, 2013 - difference: 141 days
  • BrickCon ended on October 6, 2013; coverage was posted on January 1, 2014 - difference: 87 days
I want to do better next year, but I also want to make sure the coverage we're giving you is what you want.

Please vote above and leave any other comments you have about how we can improve our coverage below. BrickFair Alabama is a week away, so we'll try to incorporate your feedback then!

For the third question, here are examples of the different types of coverage:Your input is greatly appreciated!

Missing Contest Prizes

Posted by Black Six , in BZPower Dec 23 2013 · 250 views
Contest, Prize, MIA
There were some periods during the past couple of years where I was super busy and wasn't able to send out contest prizes in a timely manner. For the past few months I've been going through my records to get them all squared away. I think I have a majority of them done at this point, except for a couple where I'm waiting to hear back from people.

But there's definitely a good chance that I have missed or overlooked some contests and prizes, and I'd like to resolve that.

So if I still owe you or someone you know a contest prize, please send me a PM or leave a comment here. Spread the word so as many people as possible hear about this. I really want to make sure everyone gets their prizes.

Thanks for your help, and if I owe you something, I'm sorry it's taken so long.

Fun in RPG Land

Posted by Black Six , in BZPower Dec 19 2013 · 513 views
Bionicle, LEGO, RPG
The Bionicle RPG forum has some of our most active topics and the BZPRPG is a pretty popular game.

The LEGO RPG forum, not so much.

I've been thinking a little bit about what we can do about that. I'm open to suggestions. I have considered merging the two, but then we'd have to figure out what to do with Bionicle RPGs selected via contests and LEGO RPGs selected via judging. Certainly not an insurmountable problem, but something to consider.

I'd like to hear what you guys have to think about the state of the RPG forums and how to run things moving forward.

BZPower Livestreams

Livestream, stream
Man, it's been far too long since I last posted here. Things have been, and still are, busy. But I need to get back in the habit of making blog entries, so here we are.

Back in September, we hosted a livestream celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Mask of Light's release. Despite not going entirely as we planned, it was still a lot of fun and I think everyone enjoyed it.

I'd like to do more of them - would you like us to? What would you like us to stream? Other LEGO movies and videos like Hero Factory and Ninjago? Playing games like MNOLG or the TT Games?

Does anyone have a suggestion for a platform to use? Should we stay with YouTube or looking into something like Twitch or Ustream?

Let me know and we'll see what we can do!

Misplaced BrickFair MOC

Posted by Black Six , in LEGO Con Aug 21 2013 · 1,049 views
BrickFair, MOC, MIA
It would seem that in the hustle and bustle of packing up all the MOCs at the end of BrickFair that someone's creation ended up in the wrong box. Wasp received a MOC that does not belong to him or his brother.

If this belongs to you or you know whose it is, please let me know ASAP so we can get it returned.

Thanks everyone!

Query Kevin at BrickFair

Posted by Black Six , in BZPower, LEGO Con Jul 27 2013 · 329 views
BrickFair, BFVA, Kevin, Hinkle
BrickFair Virginia is less than a week away! On Friday, August 2nd at 11:30 AM, Kevin Hinkle will be doing his LEGO Question & Answer panel again. Todd is doing the same thing he did at BrickFair New England where we get to ask our questions over lunch at a nearby restaurant. It'll be interesting to see how it goes with a much larger crowd.

Anyway, I know a lot of you unfortunately won't be able to make it, so once again I'm giving you the chance to come up with some questions to ask Kevin about LEGO and the community. All questions are welcome, whether they're serious or silly (or somewhere in between). Leave them in the comments below.

I'll do my best to ask as many as I can during the convention and see if I can steal some of his time later to ask the remaining ones.

For those of you who are going to BrickFair Virginia - I can't wait to see you all!






Welcome To My Blog

I'm glad to see you made the trip intact.
