  1. Looks like we somehow missed this one last week - over on StarWars.com an upcoming LEGO Star Wars set has been announced. The 501st Legion Clone Troopers Building Kit is a perfect tie-in with the final season of The Clone Wars airing right now, although the set won't be launching until August. You get three 501st Clone Troopers and one Jet Trooper, plus two B1 Battle Droids. Unlike most battle packs, this 285-piece set has two vehicles, a BARC Speeder and an AT-RT, both of which are surprisingly show-accurate. It looks fantastic and is sure to be a hit with fans, I'm just hoping they manage to keep the price under $30 - it is a battle pack after all! View the full article
  2. LEGO is helping our the doctors and nurses fighting the COVID-19 virus by providing much needed safety visors, and today they released a new video showing the process. They have set up six of their moulding machines in Billund to crank out the visors, which will be delivered to hospitals. Over 100 LEGO Employees are working to make this happen, which is really cool, and I'm glad LEGO is doing their part to help during these troubling times. View the full article
  3. We got a little tied up with other things yesterday, so we had to move our weekly gaming stream to tonight. You can come by the BZPower Twitch channel at our usual time of 7:30 PM Eastern when we'll boot up our Xbox and play some LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes. I hear the next level is going to be a doozy, so come by and tune in! I'm looking forward to tracking down escaped villains and making sure the world's greatest detective puts them back behind bars where they belong! Hope to see you all there! View the full article
  4. There was no new episode of LEGO Masters last week, so instead of interviewing a team of contestants, we interviewed the judges. BZPower, The Brothers Brick, Brickset, and True North Bricks spoke LEGO Set Design Leads Jamie Berard and Amy Corbett to get an update on what it was like to be on the show. The first time we talked to them, we hadn't seen an episode yet, but now with eight installments having been aired we could get some more insight into the events and decisions that have taken place on the show. Read on to see what we learned! View the full article
  5. It's not unusual for a writer to include the same characters in several stories. It's been pretty lucrative for the likes of Tom Clancy and Agatha Christie. BZPower member Harvali has their own recurring character, a Fe-Matoran superhero who goes by Kanohi. You can check out all of the adventures of this masked Matoran in Kanohi: Stories of a Matoran Vigilante. The five stories there so far should keep you busy for a bit, and afterwards you can let the author know what you think! View the full article
  6. We're moving our weekly Twitch stream to Wednesday this week. We'll post a reminder tomorrow with the full details. View the full article

  9. With the COVID-19 virus spreading throughout the world, there are many people, especially children and families, who are impacted in various ways, whether it be financially or through lack of educational options. Check out this press release to see how The LEGO Group and the LEGO Foundation are supporting children and families impacted by COVID-19. The two organizations are teaming up with Education Cannot Wait and other groups to donate $50 million to children and families in need during this trying time. In addition, they've gathered a selection of designers, STEM gurus, creatives and play experts to launch the #letsbuildtogether campaign to encourage kids to play, imagine, and create while stuck at home. Both are definitely great initiatives and it's good to see them trying to make a difference. View the full article
  10. There have been a couple updates over on LEGO Ideas this week - even quarantines can't stop votes! First up, joining the 10k Club is The Castle in the Forest by poVoq. The model immediately reminds me of the classic LEGO Castle Forestmen sets and features some awesome techniques to achieve angled walls and access to the interior of the structure. Ideas team member Jacob has also posted the latest 10K Club Interview: Meet Simon Dudley and his NASA Spacecraft, where you can learn about the builder and the build. Go check them both out and join us in wishing them good luck in their respective review phases! View the full article
  11. Among the many, if not all, plans being canceled or delayed across the world as we live through a global pandemic, LEGOLAND New York has officially postponed their Grand Opening celebrations to 2021. Read the press release here, but no further information is given aside from honoring tickets and passes bought for this year upon opening. Hopefully the opening date works well with all our schedules, and we can hang out after getting through these tough times. View the full article
  12. We have a whole passel-full of LEGO Architecture skyline sets and we're going to see how many we can build in three or four hours tomorrow. Head over to the BZPower Twitch channel tomorrow, April 4th, at 1 PM Eastern as we start things up. We have 21028 New York City, 21032 Sydney, 21033 Chicago, 21034 London, 21047 Las Vegas, and 21051 Tokyo, so we'll get to travel around the world and see buildings and architecture styles from all over. Of course there will be some giveaways as well, so make sure you tune in and watch! View the full article
  13. Today we have a LEGO Masters interview that I've both been looking forward to and dreading. BZPower, The Brothers Brick, Brickset, and True North Bricks spoke with the team eliminated on last week's episode. We've already met and talked to one of the team members a few times, but there's still a lot to learn about their LEGO history, their experiences on the show, and the lasting impact that LEGO Masters has had on them. We had a great time talking to them, and hopefully you have a great time reading! View the full article
  14. I hope everyone is enjoying 'don't trust anything you read on the Internet day,' aka April Fools Day. My days of pranking are over, so you can trust us when we link you to BZPower's 2020 Member Raffle #4, our giveaway for the month of April. Up for grabs is 71305 Lewa - Uniter of Jungle, one of the last Toa sets released back in 2016. As per usual, all BZPower members can enter, no strings attached. Maybe you'll be lucky like MartinCollects, who won last month's raffle! View the full article
  15. It's Tuesday. We're all stuck at home. So there's no reason to not play some videogames tonight on the BZPower Twitch channel! Join us at 7:30 PM Eastern as we dive back into LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes to battle some baddies with the Caped Crusader and friends! It should be lots of fun, or at least more fun than staring out your window wishing you weren't trapped indoors. See you all there! View the full article
