BZPower was approached by LEGO a little while ago to help them find a way to raise awareness of the Star Wars Buildable Figures. In addition to our recent BBC Contest, we came up with the idea to build a diorama to show off some of the sets. We'll be showing off the build as we work on it tomorrow, September 3rd, starting at around 3 PM Eastern over on the BZPower YouTube channel. The finished diorama will be displayed at BrickFair New Jersey September 23rd and 24th! We'll also be giving away a few sets to lucky viewers! We look forward to seeing you there!

Well that doesn't sound surprising at all. They handled terribly G2, killed it one year earlier, and tried to push an overpriced line with repetitive builds and colours. Who would have guess LEGO would have had problems with selling it?

Way to turn a nice effort to cooperate with the community into an insult. To be honest it's a wonder Lego still makes any effort at all to connect with Bionicle fans, given how routinely unpleasable they tend to be...

This is what most of the fandom (outside the small pond that BZPower is) thinks. You can't expect a nice and warm reaction from the very same people that were teased with two years of G2 and weren't given a much needed conclusion - to be clear, no need to be hypocrite here: most people who cared about the reboot are still ###### off about the way it ended, without LEGO itself giving any actual explanation, and this is something the company needs to acknowledge whenever they want to interact with us.  Seeing a multibillionare company asking a fansite about ways to promote toys related to one of the most popular intellectual properties of all times speaks volumes about the success of Star Wars CCBS, and as a BIONICLE fan this makes me all the sadder.
