It's been a long time since I've had to do this, but here we go: for years BZPower has had a very clear policy regarding leaked and preliminary content. This policy is still in effect. Until we hear something official from LEGO, there is nothing to talk about regarding any purportedly-leaked images which may or may not be real.

Glad to see this article up so soon. Hoping this will cut down on the issue of new members creating topics to post/inquire about the leaks.

Come to think of it, we probably haven't had this much of an issue with leaked pics since Bionicle actually ended. I certainly don't remember any Hero Factory leaks getting this much airplay. So I suppose it's no wonder that there are so many members here who aren't aware of BZP's no-leaks policy.

Nice job telegraphing the existence of possible leaked images, BZP.

I don't think people care so much about getting HF info early as they were Bionicle. Bionicle had a story; HF doesn't. If you saw a leaked Bionicle image in 2006 for 2007 sets, you could use those to predict that the Toa would go underwater next year. Would they follow the Mask of Life? What did it mean for Mata Nui? There was a lot more to think about and consider back then than there is with HF now.

While I wish that reminders such as these didn't have to be posted, there's a small part of me that just gets excited whenever this kind of news crops up.

If our forums, the blogs, and news email were any indication, most people know about the images already. If you want to look for them yourself, we can't stop you. Just don't post them here.

I understand why you put this reminder up, but all in all it just alerts everyone else to the fact that these images exist, and that they're missing out and should look them up. No big deal, just sort of ironic.

Honestly it's not BZP's problem if people see that leaks exist and decide to seek out the images themselves. BZP isn't obligated to babysit its members and visitors, and what they do outside of BZP is, as always, their own business. But it can make sure that it doesn't share responsibility for the ongoing circulation and hosting of illegally obtained images.

Geez. I'm not saying that's BZP's job. I'm not saying it should be BZP's should. I just think it's ironic that BZP likes to follow a policy of keeping leaked images out, and they end up letting everyone know that they should start looking for leaked images. The end.

Gotta say, the mere fact that such a big deal is being made out of leaked images...

 

...makes me more than a little nostalgic. This hasn't been such a big deal in years. :D

Everything Bionicle is very nostalgic, is there a reason for this, cause NOTHING from my childhood is more nostalgic than Bionicle, and I was into Bionicle way after I could be called child or whatever. This 'leak' is so good, I can't wait for it to be proven or disproven.

The most nostalgic part is...waiting on the hype train, and trying to believe that...

 

Something's happening again!

Can someone explain why such a so strict anti-leak policy exists?

As someone rather out-of-touch with leaks, this was a marvelous way to get me to look for them.

 

Not criticizing BZP's policy, that's already been discussed.

 

I, too, find it ironic, and that is all.
