Short update this week. Someone need to give me an idea for something to discuss.
So, first up on the list is that Lego is taking applications for new Lego Ambassadors, and BZPower (along with other Lego communities on the Internet) get to help nominate candidates. We get to nominate up to three people to be considered for the position, with at most one from the community being selected. If you're 18 or older and are interested (no matter where in the world you live) by all means get some testimonials and send an application over to me so we can send it in.
I'm giving this a shot and seeing if I can become an Ambassador. Obviously the Bionicle line does quite well and is always one of the better-selling themes, but many AFOLs still seem to overlook it as being 'kiddy,' which is ironic considering we're talking about a building toy. I've been trying to help raise awareness with things like LAML Radio. Speaking of which, hopefully I won't be the only proponent of Bionicle to appear on the show, but when that happens is up to James, not me, obviously.
Anyway, I think Lego can gain a lot from someone that grew up with the classic themes like Space, Pirates, and Castle but also enjoys Bionicle. So if it comes down to a vote for who gets nominated, be sure to make the right choice.
Sometime this weekend there should be a couple of new staff announcements. One is sort of a continuation of a recent staff event. Actually, so is the other. If that doesn't get you thinking, I don't know what will. I'm sure all the promotions will work out for the best though, otherwise they wouldn't be happening.
Nothing this week. Send me your questions!
Want to see your questions answered? PM them to me and put 'Mailbag' in the subject line. I'll pick the few I like the best and answer them in the next update.
Like I said, nothing much to this week's update. Hope you enjoyed it nonetheless, and if you'd like to see me talk about more things, let me know and give me some ideas!
