Hot Bionicle News Flickr Pro on Sale Now
Flickr has seen plenty of changes over the years, but it still holds as a central hub for AFOLs to share MOCs and other photos. One recent change was the arrival of Flickr Pro, giving members several perks like advanced statistics, photo-printing discounts, and being ad-free. It also meant that standard members would no longer have unlimited photo storage, and Flickr Pro would be the way to host unlimited photos on your account. For those still on the fence about enhancing their Flickr usage, there is currently a sale for annual subscribers: 41% off, coming out to $3.54 a month for a year, compared to paying $6 monthly. Check out the offer, and make sure you're logged in to see the limited discount. Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News Come to a LEGO Convention in 2019
If you're a LEGO fan, attending a fan convention should be high on your to-do list, especially if you've never attended one. (Here's why!) No matter where you live, there's probably one taking place somewhere near you, for some definition of 'near.' We recently updated the BZPower Fan Events Calendar with all of the major events taking place in North America this year. If you're thinking about visiting one, head over to the Convention & Event Planning Forum, find the topic for the event you're interested in, and let us know! There's probably other people thinking about attending, and once they see others interested they'll chime in too! Talk Back in our Forums

BZPower The Apprentice Becomes the Master
BZPower member Sergei Rahkmaninoff took the prompts from two contests and combined them to create Forgemaster Senos, a robotic blacksmith who has lost his mentor. Tasking himself to build both a non-humanoid constraction creation for Bionicle Without the Bionicle and a character with a backstory for Brickset, the end result is a character with a lot of personality, both in words and bricks. I like the choice of dark orange as well as the little mechanical details like the air pumps on the shoulders. Give it a look yourself and let Sergei know what you think! Talk Back in our Forums

Hot Bionicle News LEGO Video Roundup Worthy of Your Views
This past week on LEGO's YouTube Channel has seen a start of The LEGO Movie 2 videos.

Finally, the next Ninjago season's trailer dropped, promising adventure and danger. Check these out! And I'm sure next week will feature even more build up to The LEGO Movie 2.

Market News Celebrate the 100th US LEGO Store
This weekend only, Jan 4-6, to celebrate the 100th LEGO Store opening in the United States, all US LEGO Stores offer a free minifig and poster for purchases over $50 (while supplies last). Reported over on Minifig Price Guide, the gift with purchase includes a LEGO Brand Retail employee with a printed celebratory brick and a poster to mark the occasion. That is quite a feat for our beloved brand. The deal stacks with the $25 Friends/City freebie promo. Also, stores will have Harry Potter Collectible Minifigs at 20% off and the new Chinese New Year BrickHeadz. If you've been planning a LEGO trip, now is the time. Talk Back in our Forums

It's been a couple of months since LEGO revealed the first wave of The LEGO Movie 2 sets, but apparently they left one out. You might have seen some leaks floating around of 70840 Welcome to Apocalypseburg!, but I don't think they did justice to this massive set. As much a playset as it is a display piece, this model looks like it can offer something to just about any LEGO fan. To see the hi-res images and read the press release before the set becomes available in less than two weeks, read on! Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

If you've subscribed to us on YouTube, you may have seen some strange Live Build videos lately featuring LEGO Movie 2 set 70828 Pop-Up Party Bus. Don't worry - our channel hasn't been hijacked by intruders from the Systar System. Rather, one of our other reporters is trying to find their footing with live streaming builds the way Andrew (Black Six) usually does. Unfortunately, danny316p doesn't have a great video setup yet (although the experimental setup did improve over the three parts of this live build) and most of the audio did not come out in any of the videos. Luckily, this set is amazing and the rare colors and spectacular disco-ball dance party feature still shine in these videos. Since these were raw, rushed, experimental live streams, we did not announce them in advance or do any giveaways. We've got links and embeds after the jump. Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

Decalcomania brought their augmented reality stickers to Toy Fair 2018, and were happy to demonstrate several items for us. Unfortunately, the then-upcoming Avengers: Infinity War items weren't available, but the concept of bedroom wall stickers that can come to life on a mobile device was pretty fun to see. We've condensed all of our pictures and video clips into one YouTube video, available below and at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afY_XW8ox_k Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story
