  1. LEGO has been kind enough to send us the beautiful LEGO Star Wars 75275 A-wing Starfighter - the latest addition to the Ultimate Collector Series of sets - which will be the subject of our next live build! Join us this Saturday, June 6th, starting at 1 PM Eastern on the BZPower Twitch channel as we complete the latest alphabet starfighter to receive the UCS treatment. While I'm still waiting for a new capture card to hopefully improve our stream quality, we did have a successful Twitch Tuesday this week with little to no buffering or lagging, so hopefully that's a good sign! We'll have giveaways, fun discussions about Star Wars and whatever else you'd like to bring up, and over 1600 LEGO pieces to assemble. See you there! View the full article
  2. We're a little late in posting this, but the news is still relevant. Last week Jordan Paxton shared A Message from the Powered UP Team over on the LEGO Ambassador Network, revealing that individual PUP components could be purchased on LEGO Shop@Home starting June 1st. Since that was three days ago, it means the motors, hubs, and more are available now. They are very expensive, however, to a degree where we can't really recommend you buy them piecemeal. For example, 42099 4X4 X-treme Off-Roader sells for $250 and includes 1 Technic Hub, 2 XL motors, and 1 L motor. Buying those four parts on their own would cost $210. This incongruity has already been pointed out on the LAN, but we'll have to see if LEGO lowers the prices to make them actually worth buying. View the full article
  3. LEGO has posted the following message on their Facebook and Twitter pages: "We stand with the Black community against racism and inequality. There is much to do. We will donate $4 million to organizations dedicated to supporting black children and educating all children about racial equality." It's great to see LEGO taking a stance on this very important social issue. I encourage everyone to do what they can to show support as well. I will be making donations to Black Lives Matter and the Baltimore Action Legal Team, which is local to me. If you are able to donate or already have, forward the receipt or a screenshot to andrew@bzpower.com and I will match the first $1000 in support.View the full article
  4. It's Tuesday again already, isn't it? Oh how the time flies! Tonight we'll be over on the BZPower Twitch channel again playing LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, continuing the story of Raiders of the Lost Ark starting at around 7:30 PM. We're still waiting for our new capture card to arrive, so there will likely be some delay and buffering unfortunately. But we'll do our best to make sure you don't miss a moment of the fun as we rush to rescue the priceless artifacts that belong in a museum. We look forward to seeing you there! View the full article
  5. Earlier today Jan Beyer shared some awesome information over on the LEGO Ambassador Network. Starting later this month, the LEGO House will be offering virtual tours that share the history of The LEGO Group. There are five presentations scheduled, each focusing on a different time period of the company, spread between June 11th and September 5th. It's free to attend, but you must register in advance, which you can do right here. I'm definitely curious about this initiative and hope I'll be able to attend at least a couple of them. Let us know if you plan to participate as well! View the full article
  6. BZPower member -turaga_makuta- has been sharing their piano covers of Bionicle music on the forums for over five years now, and they just keep getting better. Recently he posted a new video featuring snippets of a bunch of different songs from all over the universe we know and love. He says it's a teaser, so presumably that means there will be more videos coming soon! I definitely look forward to seeing what songs have been chosen and hearing the full versions. Head over to the topic to listen to the current selections yourself and then let the talented pianist know what you think! View the full article
  7. There's just under a week left to enter Bling Out the BZPower Twitch Channel. We're looking for help creating emoticons, subscriber badges, and music to play during our streams. In return, we're giving away a bunch cool prizes, some of which you can get just by participating. The entries for badges and music are pretty light right now, so you probably have a good chance of getting awesome swag if you submit a picture or song. Good luck getting those entries in by 11:59 PM Eastern on June 7th! View the full article
  8. It's a new month which means a new raffle for BZPower members to enter. For June we've got a special promotional set up for grabs - 5002942 Bionicle Villain Pack - which was never widely available in the US and mainly seemed to be released in Russia. You've got until the end of the month to enter, but no need to delay and possibly forget later in June. Everyone who is a member of BZPower can enter, and joining is free, so if you haven't joined yet, what are you waiting for? Before we close out, congratulations to AZBlue, who won last month's giveaway! View the full article

  10. The team behind the fan-made RPG project Bionicle: Quest for Mata Nui has recently shared a new look at the development of the game. In Bionicle: Quest for Mata Nui - Update #6 - Kanohi Akaku, you can see the Mask of X-Ray Vision in action, both using it to zoom in on far-away objects and to see enemies through walls and other obstructions as well as information about them. Plus it has additional benefits during fighting, granting you a parry ability. Make sure you stay to the end for an awesome combat montage with all of the original Toa using different abilities to defeat a variety of Rahi. It certainly looks like it's going to be a blast to play! View the full article
  11. During the past few months of staying at home it seems like just about everyone has been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the Switch. Builder Micro_Model_Maker took advantage of the popularity by constructing Animal Crossing New Horizons: Nook's Cranny and submitting it on LEGO Ideas. The project has already hit ten thousand votes and will be considered for being turned into a LEGO set. There's a distinct lack of a raccoon in MOC, but it's still a cool build with lots of awesome details. I'm sure a lot of fans would love to add it to their collections. Let us know if you're one of them in the Talkback! View the full article
  12. First it was The LEGO Movie characters helping raise awareness on the current COVID-19 situation and now we've moved on to a galaxy far, far away. Over on the LEGO YouTube channel you can go see An Important Message from a Galaxy At Least Six Feet Away to watch Luke Skywalker explain to R2-D2 why keeping your distance during this situation is important. It's both cute an informative, and it's great to see LEGO continuing these videos. I wonder what's going to be next? View the full article
  13. The preliminary round of Bio-Cup 2020 has recently concluded, and now the participants eagerly await the judges' decisions to see which builders will be moving onto the next round. In the meantime, there are still a lot of very cool MOCs built around the theme "Future", with a mind boggling 235 entries submitted! The Reporters of BZPower have gone through the list to highlight a couple of our favorites, so read on to check out a selection of cool models, and make sure to browse through the list to see the many other awesome Bionicle creations! Let us know which ones are your favorites in the Talkback topic!View the full article
  14. In this crazy stay-at-home situation the days seem to keep flying by.

This Bionicle G2 set can be yours for the low, low price of free as long as you're a BZPower member. So join today and put yourself in the running! View the full article
  15. In addition to the other information we've already shared on the Technic 42115 Lamborghini Sian FKP 37, LEGO has also passed on a couple of videos from an event that was held in China to reveal the supercar set. And now we're sharing those with you. But there's more! The LEGO Fan Media Days are going on right now, and we have been given the opportunity to pass on some of your questions about the set to get answers from the LEGO Technic team. Post them in the Talkback and we'll see if we can get a reply for you!View the full article
