  1. The fine folks at the MasterPiece: Bionicle Mocists group have recently announced their December Monthly Contest Theme. You have until December 31st to assemble a fantastic bug MOC - which could be an insect, myriapod, arachnid, worm, or any sort of imaginative take on that theme. The winner gets themselves 75525 Baze Malbus, which we're happy to say that we've donated to the cause. So break out your parts, put on your thinking cap, and get building! View the full article
  2. Earlier this year, MySnailEatsPizza uploaded photos of his Dust Slizer. At first I thought there must be some confusion, because Dust was released as a Roborider, but then I saw that the MOC actually has a transformation feature. The Slizer portion feels right out of a post-apocalyptic setting, especially with the color scheme of tans and grays with some red and brown highlights. But the transformed Roborider portion is quite solid, making it look like a formidable vehicle to encounter in the desert; he even has the harpoon spikes from the original set. Each of the builds stand out on their own, and the transformation between them is all the better. Very impressive!View the full article
  3. We'll be doing another LEGO live build this Sunday, December 6th at 1 PM Eastern. We're taking a look at three of the recent Star Wars Jedi Starfighters: 75168 Yoda's Jedi Starfighter from 2017, 75214 Anakin's Jedi Starfighter from 2018, and 75281 Anakin's Jedi Interceptor from this year. Come by the BZPower Twitch channel to watch, chat, and win some free sets! We hope to see you this weekend! View the full article
  4. Ordinarily, you'd need to trade two Husi birds for one Mahi goat, but this one is probably worth more than usual. Awesomenessborn reimagined this Rahi in a new design. The head and legs are pretty simple but stick with the biomechanical feel from the early years of the theme. The body, however, is the most impressive due to the various yellow pieces used in the build, including some head pieces from various Hero Factory villains. I expect you could trade this bird for top dollar at the Po-Koro bazaar.View the full article
  5. The French Bionicle fansite BIONIFIGS recently sat down virtually with the one and only Greg Farshtey to discuss Bionicle past, present, and future (or lack thereof). You can go read it in English or French to see what the author had to say. There's definitely a couple of nice anecdotes and nostalgic references in there, and it's good to see Greg still has fond memories of the theme. Go give it a read! View the full article
  6. It's not often you see Bionicle fan music out there, so when I come across some I definitely have to check it out. BZPower member Namata recently set out to change that with his BIONICLE EDM Medley. I love hearing all the familiar tunes he managed to incorporate into the track while giving it its own unique flavor. You should all give it a listen for yourself and then let the creator know what you think of it! Now we just need to be able to hang out in person again so we can have a Bionicle rave!

  7. One of my problems with the original Bionicle movies were how much leeway they gave between the design of the character and the sets they were based off. Krekka wasn't exactly the worst example, but Sarchasmus made some changes to make the MOC look more like his movie counterpart. The System wedges along the body give it a good flow and the head (with the one bad eye) is nicely built out. But it's the overly large hands that really sell it as Movie Krekka. A pretty sleek design.View the full article
  8. The game Among Us became very popular this year, and this is showcased in Cody Avery's MOC Brown Looking Sus. The Imposter and corpse designs are quite well done, and although the bone and tongue pieces are nicely placed, the use of the CCBS Han Solo collar piece is the best. After this creation, you should probably vote Brown out at the next meeting.View the full article
  9. Back in December 1995, the very first LEGO video game was released (bonus points if you know what it was offhand). Now, twenty-five years later, LEGO is looking back at a quarter-century of digital collaboration with a new podcast that takes us on the LEGO gaming journey. A teaser episode for Bits N' Bricks, hosted by journalist Brian Crecente and documentarian Ethan Vincent, launches today on a variety of podcast platforms and looks like it'll be a treat for gaming and brick historians alike. To learn more about the company's forays into the digital realm and about the podcast specifically, read on!View the full article
  10. Today we turned our calendars over to December and, in addition to it meaning that 2020 is just a little closer to being done, that means we're giving away a new set! If you'd like to enter for a chance to win a free 70793 Skull Basher from the G2 Bionicle lineup, head over to 2020 Member Raffle #12 and drop your name in the virtual hat. Maybe you'll be lucky like Bambi, who won our November raffle! Best of luck to all the BZPower members who enter - and remember, joining is free! View the full article
  11. Yep, it's Tuesday again already! Come on by the BZPower Twitch channel tonight starting at 7:30 PM Eastern when we start playing some more LEGO Dimensions. I believe we'll be heading into the Doctor Who level, so it should be interesting to face Daleks, Cybermen, and whatever else they throw at us! I hope to see you there tonight! View the full article
  12. We're trying something new this month; 24 days of my favorite Bionicle MOCs from this year! Let's kick off the month with a build that doesn't necessarily use Bionicle pieces but truly captures the Bionicle spirit. Kini Nui by Lamborghiniwafflesauce features the iconic temple based off its various appearances. The temple itself has a clean look with the spires well represented, and the head statue by the Amaja Nui is also particularly well done. This model feels like it's straight out of the Mask of Light movie and MNOLG!View the full article
  13. Today we're looking at one of the Marvel sets released almost a year ago: 76144 Avengers Hulk Helicopter Rescue. This set, loosely based on the movie Endgame, features desirable characters like Hulk, Rescue, and Black Widow with an Avengers helicopter, as well as some Chitauri and their vehicles. BZPower Report Xccj has put together a review of the set, so read on to see if it's worth picking up for the holidays! (And minor movie spoilers will be mentioned.)View the full article
  14. The Staff at BZPower usually review new LEGO sets on the front page, along with a video highlighting what photos can not. Today, however, we let resident LEGO Master Aaron (Nuju Metru) commandeer control of our Instagram Stories as he swashbuckles his way through LEGO Ideas 21322: Pirates of Barracuda Bay. Check out the photo series in Stories (click our icon) before the 24-hour deadline elapses to see just how impressive this massive set is and what stands out to Aaron. And let us know in the Talkback what you thought of this review method. View the full article
  15. When I see that a new project on LEGO Ideas reaches ten thousand votes of support I put it on a list so we don't forget to report on it here. Then I blink and there's five new models in the 10k Club: TX Master Games by TXMaster Milwaukee Art Museum by Vida Andras The Car Wash by Bricky_Brick Wallace & Gromit by Tom Gerardin Among Us: The Skeld by MinifigInDisguise Best of luck to all of these creations when they enter the review phase!View the full article
