Hot Bionicle News LEGO Opens Suit Against LEPIN
Through the LEGO Ambassador Network, Jacky Chen of the LCE Team recently shared the following message:
We would like to confirm that the LEGO Group have recently filed civil actions in China against the manufacturer and distributor of LEPIN branded construction toys. Our cases have been accepted by Chinese courts and are now pending for trials. We expect the 1st instance decision to be handed down in approximately one years' time. Please note that LEPIN will not be legally barred from marketing and selling its products while the case is being heard by the courts.
We deeply appreciate and share the LEGO community's concern and frustration about passing-off or imitation of LEGO products. We are committed to do whatever necessary to protect the LEGO brand and products against undue exploitation, and to minimize the risk of consumers being misled via improper use of LEGO Group intellectual property assets.

Hot Bionicle News You Must Build a Boat
The variety of projects that reach ten thousand votes on LEGO Ideas keeps getting more and more diverse. The latest addition to the club is Boat Repair Shop by RobenAnne, a model that fits in the modular building design camp but would look odd next to a Cafe Corner. I think they capture the waterfront look perfectly, with the multicolored wood planks, broken windows, and metal siding. The amount of detail is superb and looks great from any angle, inside or out. Now it must face the review phase to determine whether or not it will make it onto store shelves. What do you think? Will it pass? Would you buy it? Let us know in the Talkback!

Hot Bionicle News LEGO to be a Hot Toy this Holiday
In news that should surprise no one, LEGO sets have appeared on a couple of lists containing predictions for popular toys this holiday season. On The Toy Insider's Hot 20 list, the LEGO Star Wars Resistance X-wing Fighter is in the tweens category. Toy World has a report on Toys 'R' Us' must-have Christmas toys, which includes the LEGO Friends Party Shop and LEGO Ninjago Samurai X Cave Chaos sets. I'm surprised no Star Wars Rogue One sets were there, but I'm sure plenty of LEGO products will be flying off shelves in the coming months and appearing under trees at the end of the year.

BZPower Speed Things Up with this Particle Accelerator
Sometimes the best way to learn about science is to accelerate particles to near the speed of light and then send them smashing into each other to see what happens. That seems to be what's going on at the BERG-LNZ Particle Acceleration Laboratory, a fictional science MOC by Disty says hi. The System detailing gives the model a very industrial look which fits the background Disty has come up with. I love how he has incorporated the Bionicle pieces into the main accelerator, giving it a rather futuristic or hi-tech feel. So go admire it and let the builder know what you think - whatever you do though, don't stand in the middle between the two accelerators! Talk Back in our Forums
