BZPower Wage a Trojan War with the Frigate Agamemnon
Sometimes you find yourself with a pile of unfamiliar bricks and try to cobble something cohesive together out of them with some amount of success. Or, you could be like Nuju Metru and build the Class 8 Frigate "Agamemnon", a fantastic looking microscale spaceship built while he was on his holiday break. The ship is packed full of details from stem to stern, with turrets, sensor suites, and hangars giving it a military look. The color scheme is interesting and I would not have expected the Earth Blue and Sand Green to work as well as they do. The white adds some nice separation between the hues and the yellow highlights catch the eye. Of course, presentation is everything, and Aaron has done a great job placing his creation in orbit over a planet and then providing a 'schematic' view showing off the ship's systems. An absolutely gorgeous MOC that you should all check out and let the builder know what you think! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Boosts its Robotics Options
The Consumer Electronics Show is taking place in Las Vegas this week and companies are revealing all the coolest tech of 2017.

BOOST isn't as advanced as Mindstorms and is geared to younger kids building with System versus Technic. One of the most interesting things is that the set doesn't include paper instructions - you use the app to build any of the five models designers have created to show off the set's capabilities. It's an interesting branch in the LEGO robotics world and if you want to learn more you should check out PR Newswire or Mashable. Let us know what you think in the Talkback! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower The Sounds of Mata Nui
I love the creativity that comes out of the LEGO community, especially when it's not a MOC made out of bricks. A lot of Bionicle fans fondly recall the music of the early days of the theme from the Mata Nui Online Games, the Flash animations, and even the Power Pack. BZPower Member ~Skip was so inspired that he decided to collaborate with some other composers to create Mata Nui: The Music Chronicle - A Bionicle Fan Album, a collection of ten tracks that evoke the emotions of the early days of our favorite LEGO theme. Go give it a listen and let Skip and co. know what you think. I enjoyed it a lot and don't think anyone here will be disappointed. Talk Back in our Forums
