  1. Today LEGO is lifting the lid on the next LEGO Ideas set that will be appearing on store shelves. It's been a while in the making, but we finally get to see 21320 Dinosaur Fossils in all its preserved glory! Featuring three iconic prehistoric beasts - a Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, and Pteranodon - the set has a ton of detail and looks like it will be a really fun build. The set releases on November 1st and will retail for $60 in the US. For a 360-degree look at the set, plus hi-res pictures and the full press release, read on!View the full article
  2. As if perfectly-aligned with the Xbox sale we shared earlier, today is Tuesday and that means we get to play some videogames tonight. Unfortunately Bionicle Heroes is not on sale (or even available), but we'll be playing it anyway over on the BZPower Twitch channel starting around 7:30 PM Eastern. We'll be starting a new zone tonight and seeing what new sorts or challenges they'll be throwing at us. See you all there! View the full article
  3. A number of LEGO games are available at a great price right now for the Xbox One. Major Nelson has posted the list on his blog which contains a lot of other great sales as well for other franchises. Some of the newer games are still a little pricey, but you can get a good deal on a few older titles like the Marvel Superheroes series and the original LEGO Movie. I think my collection is just about complete by now, but I might pick up some of the newer titles digitally to make them easier to play in the future. Let us know in the Talkback what you pick up!

  4. If you've been on the fence about picking up some sets from the LEGO Store, maybe this will sway your decision. From now until October 27th, you can get double VIP points on all of your orders, online and in person. While you can frequently find LEGO sets on sale at other retailers, this is a good opportunity to pick up some of the sets that are exclusive, or to buy loose bricks and Power Functions or Powered UP motors and accessories. There's certainly some deals to be had - let us know what you decide to pick up in the Talkback! View the full article
  5. Usually when we see a LEGO designer video, it's for one of the large Direct-to-Consumer sets like a Creator Expert modular or a Star Wars Ultimate Collector's Series spaceship. But I guess because of the large push they're putting behind Hidden Side, we get to see behind the scenes of one of those sets. Go check out the LEGO Hidden Side 70425 Newbury Haunted High School Designer Video to see how set designer Yi-Chien Cheng and element designer Felipe Telles made it come to life (or death? because it's haunted)! It's great to see all of the concept models and the interesting iterations of the play features as they evolved over time. I'm sure most of us wouldn't mind seeing this type of video for more sets in other themes in the future! View the full article
  6. I love what people can do with some LEGO sets, a camera, and photo editing software. Keyblade87 made a very moody image perfect for October -Kongu's Nightmare & Comic #9 - along with a cool recreation of the cover of Bionicle comic #9. Somehow Kongu's Miru looks filled with terror as he lies there surrounded by the creepy Krana. Go check it out and let Keyblade know what you think!View the full article
  7. You picked the set and now we're building it! Tomorrow, October 12th at 1 PM Eastern on the BZPower YouTube channel we'll be assembling set 40366 LEGO House Dinosaurs, straight from The LEGO House in Billund, Denmark. Many thanks to Dan for bringing me back a copy to share with everyone! Come watch it come together, add your thoughts, and win free LEGO. It'll be a blast - see you there! View the full article
  8. There have been two new developments on LEGO Ideas this week. First, there's a new project in the 10k Club: Planet Express Delivery Ship by Nicola Stocchi, which fans of Futurama are sure to love. In addition, the team is also running a new contest: Build a Vintage car to cruise the streets of LEGO Modular Buildings! The winner will have their model adapted to become a future Gift-With-Purchase set, like the Space Rocket Ride from earlier this year. They'll also get two Modular Buildings and whole bunch of other sets. All cars must be at most 6 studs wide, 18 studs long, and 10 bricks high and submitted by November 20th at 6 AM Eastern. Start your engines and get building! View the full article
  9. Christian Faber has been teasing us for years about his next project, Rebel Nature but now it looks like there's some substantial progress being made on it. It has been announced that Toon2Tango will make Rebel Nature it's first original series, with production to begin in 2020. Toon2Tangle, in addition to co-producing the show, will handle global distribution across multiple media platforms. It'll be exciting to see where this goes! View the full article
  10. Today LEGO is launching a new App for mobile devices, but it's probably not something most of us would play. In partnership with Touch Press, they have created LEGO DUPLO World, an educational game for two to five year olds. In it kids will be able to build, explore, and tell stories within the familiar world of DUPLO bricks. To learn more about this new title, read on!View the full article
  11. In a press release shared yesterday, Target Corporation and Tru Kids Brands announced that the Toys "R" Us website has returned. Interestingly enough, you can't buy toys there. The purpose of the site, in marketing-speak, is to share, "content-rich videos and articles on the latest trends and hottest toy brands, in-depth product reviews, hot toy lists and brand experiences to help consumers find the perfect toys and gifts to delight kids of all ages." If you see something you want to buy, you can click on a link that directs you to Target's website where you can then buy it to have it delivered or pick it up in a store. That's certainly one way of doing things, I suppose, and clearly seems like a way to utilize the TRU brand while not having to worry about all of the retail overhead it takes to run a store.

  12. It's that time again, good old Tuesday. That means we get to play some videogames tonight! Come by the BZPower Twitch Channel tonight starting at 7:30 PM Eastern as we jump into Bionicle Heroes to continue clearing the pesky Piraka out of Voya Nui. It's been a lot of fun diving back into the classic title, especially now that we've figured out how to strafe. We look forward to seeing you there and hope you have as much fun watching as we do playing! View the full article
  13. Do you ever think to yourself, 'man, I have too many LEGO pieces, I need to get rid of some!' If you're an AFOL, probably not, but there's apparently lots of other people around the planet that have asked The LEGO Group how to properly dispose of or donate their used LEGO elements that they no longer want. Today they are announcing LEGO Replay, a service that lets people send their bricks in to be reused by Teach For America and Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston. For more information on the program, read on!View the full article
  14. In a press release shared last week, Merlin Entertainments announced that the grand opening for the LEGOLAND New York Resort would be July 4th, 2020. The park will be the largest LEGOLAND to date with, "more than 50 rides, shows and attractions across seven themed 'lands' on 150 acres." I'm sure they'll be pulling out all the stops for this come next July, so if you're able to attend you might want to consider it - it seems like it'll be a blast! View the full article
  15. This past Friday wasn't just Triple Force Friday for Star Wars, it was also the Disney's Frozen Fan Fest! At the event LEGO and Disney revealed seven sets based on the upcoming Frozen 2. The film may not hit theaters until November 22nd, but you can buy the sets right now! To learn all about the models and see them in their hi-res glory, read on!View the full article
