Weekly Update - 10/15

Intro It's still Thursday as I'm writing this, but Friday is going to be super-busy so I'm starting early. Don't expect much this week.   Updates If you preordered the game, LEGO Universe is live right now! Everyone else still has to wait a bit. Personally I've barely had enough time these past few months to play Xbox, let alone an MMO, so I'm passing for the time being. I hope it does well though!   You might have noticed that LEGO.com got overhauled earlier this week. It's a brand new desi

Weekly Update - 10/8

Intro Welcome back, one and all, to another fun-filled installment of our weekly update! Well, 'fun-filled' might be stretching it.   Updates BBCC #60 started up last week. I think the theme is amazing - I wonder where they got such an awesome idea. Also you should build something! Just not a horseshoe crab, please.   A lot of 'Brick Events' have been announced for 2011 and beyond. I personally hope to attend BrickFest and BrickFair. If you're looking for events with a large BZPower presence

A Small Isle Off The Coast

Readers of the popular webcomic xkcd will know that Randall Munroe posted a revised 'Map of Online Communities,' today. I'm not going to link to it because there's lots of things on there that we can't talk about on BZPower. There is one thing, however, that we can:     It's not quite as awesome as if BZPower was on there, but it's still pretty sweet.

Weekly Update - 10/1

Intro Man, weekends are so great. I can relax, be a little bit productive, and write Weekly Updates! Guess which part of that I'm on right now.   Updates Don't post or discuss leaked images. 'Nuff said.   Jason went off and reviewed Xplode, one of the larger Hero Factory sets. Go see what he thought of it.   Speaking of Jason, he's off right now having a lot of fun at BrickCon, and you could be too. I'm sure it'll be a fun weekend.   Since it's now October, we of course recently released a

Weekly Update - 9/24

Intro Welcome back, one and all, to this week's wonderful update. In the spirit of mixing things up I think we're going to have a little chat tonight.   Updates So Gatanui continued to provide information about the Hero Factory TV series as it aired in Germany. I have more that I need to post, but it's been a busy week.   We also had another set review, courtesy of ChocolateFrogs. Those Atlantis sets sure seem to be pretty popular.   The there was that new chapter of Yesterday Quest, with i

Intro Sorry guys, no guest updaters this time around - it's just me, you, and the Weekly Update!   Updates Umm... I got nothing...   Wait!   McSmeag reviewed Meltdown, and it was fun! We're slowly getting through those Hero Factory sets. I don't know that well have any reviews this weekend, but soon I hope.   We also had another member creation spotlight on the front page, Toa Cehk's Final Ownage. Be sure to check it out, and watch for more member creations - yours could be next!   So, w

Weekly Update - 9/10 (with Guest Appearances!)

Intro Man, so what even happened this week? I don't even know, so I think I'm going to let some other people talk for a change instead. (Like Keanu, who is here and says HI!)   Hey guys. This is totes DeeVee and Nukaya Cloud Fire. We are totes tag-teaming this entry for Mandrew. Why? Because we have the touch! We have the poweeeerr!   Updates   First things first, there's this awesome topic you should post in. Don't look at me like that.   Gatanui did a review of Hero Factory's TV series, e

Weekly Update - 9/3

Intro Man, it's been a crazy week trying to juggle all of my priorities, but I think my true colors have finally been revealed. Man, there's about thirty other people who would probably find that statement hilarious, but none of them are here. So instead, a Weekly Update!   Updates I should call this week the week of Pat, because he's been on a roll. He tore through a Corroder review earlier in the week, once again showing off his fantastic photography skills. Then he showed up in the most re

Black Six Vs U S P S - Round 4

For reference: Round 1, Round 2, and Round 3. I probably should have had a Round 4 before now, but I guess I skipped it.   Today I spent a bunch of time at Office Depot and the USPS. You're welcome. Here's who I'm saying that too: All the BBC Contest #59 winners except for Brickthing - Smeag still has your MOC and prize and will be shipping that out to you at some point. Everyone else, your MOCs are on their way home, with prizes too. Except for the CDs, I don't have those and have to get in to

Weekly Update - 8/27

Intro I am back again, no big stories this week, but I'm going to try to make things more interesting, since that definitely seemed to interest everyone a lot more.   Updates The BrickFair coverage has begun! (Slow though it may be.) If you haven't already you MUST watch the Safari. Nukaya was amazing, and of course cameraman Pat was rock solid. We also started posting some pics (of Space and Castle stuff) - hopefully we'll have more soon. In some of the pics floating around from the event yo

Weekly Update - 8/20

Intro Yay, the weekend is here once again. That means so much more when you're a working stiff. I think I'm going to try something different this week.   Updates So, I have a story for you all, hope you like.   Many years ago, almost a decade, in fact, a pretty cool guy who used to really love LEGO discovered Bionicle, and thought it was cool enough that he should make a community site for it. A year later, it merged with a big Bionicle news site, and BZPower was born. During that first year

Legends Of The Lost And Found

If you were at BrickFair this year and lost something, check out this page. Please spread the word so that we can get these MOCs and belongings back to their proper owners.   Also, you get a major kudos is you get the reference in the title without looking it up.

Weekly Update - 8/13

Intro After last week's brief update I thought maybe I should give you guys an actual update. (Although the minimalist thing seemed to go over well.)   Updates So, BrickFair was already like a week away, and everyone who was there is now sad that it's over. We're all still very tired too, and are slowly going through our pictures. Thanks to this thing called a job, I've yet to sort any of my 939 pictures yet, let alone do any editing. This weekend, I hope.   We did get some coverage up, howe

Lessons Learned: Brickfair 2010

So, here's what I've taken away from BrickFair this year. It was originally going to be a list, but that's been done by others so I thought it best to go pure-prose. This is just a first glimpse, hopefully this weekend there will be more coverage.   After five events of figuring out what I should pack and what I shouldn't, my car was still jam-packed driving there and coming back. Even though I gave away a whole bunch of sets, some prototypes, and some prizes for a few contests. At least I had

Intro BrickFair!   Updates Come talk to me at BrickFair.   Mailbag Questions are lacking.   Want to see your questions answered? PM them to me and put 'Mailbag' in the subject line. I'll pick the few I like the best and answer them in the next update.   Conclusion G'nite.

Nine Years

Nine years ago today I joined a little site known as The Bionicle Zone - little did I know that it would affect my life in so many ways.   Shortly after joining I became one of the first few moderators, thanks to my activity in the Promotions and other forums. I helped get the RPG Forum started and have been running that ever since. I became a Reporter, a Global Moderator, and finally, an Admin. I was even really inactive for a while, like one of those staff members that's still lurking around

Weekly Update - 7/31

Intro This is unfortunately posted a bit late, thanks to some server difficulties going on last night, but I don't think that makes it any less of a Weekly Update - honest!   Updates Aside from our amazing anniversary celebrations, it's been a pretty slow week, but that's ok because BrickFair is right around the corner! I'm hoping we have something super-fun to announce this weekend or early next week.   We also had our first member creation spotlight. Wasn't it great? Look for more soon!

Weekly Update - 7/24

Intro It's a late update this week, but that's because I've been so busy with BZPower stuff!   Updates So I heard it's like, our anniversary or something. Nine years is crazy, right? It boggles my mind to think that our site has been going on and thriving for this long - our members really are amazing, even though they whine and complain a bit. We wouldn't be here without you!   We like to try to celebrate things in as big a way as possible on our anniversary. Of course that means Premier pe

Weekly Update - 7/16

Intro It's the weekend again! Someone should count how many of these I've done, so I can know if it's enough that I can stop now. Anyway, on with the update!   Updates After I posted my update last week, a new serial debuted. I think Yesterday Quest stirred up a bit of controversy but also brought a bunch of new facts to life, for better or worse.   On the Hero Factory side, a new promo video was posted this week too. At about the same time, the sets themselves appeared on LEGO Shop@Home. Yo

Weekly Update - 7/9

Intro Back again for another week. I guess that means you should be updated. Do people actually like these, or is it just a wasted exercise? Let me know in the comments.   Updates We had another wonderful Hero Factory review last weekend, courtesy of Darth Vader. These sets don't seem to be all that bad. You can expect another review this weekend, though it won't be Hero Factory. We will be reviewing more of those sets though, so keep your eyes peeled.   There's been a bunch of Hero Factory

New Digs

So for the past week and a half or so, I've been in the process of moving from New Jersey to Maryland. I'm down here now (as opposed to up there), but there's still a lot of unpacking and organizing to be done.   I also recently purchased a diffuser for my camera flash to hopefully take some better pictures at BrickFair and other events in the future. Big props to Digi Acc.com - I ordered it from them on Wednesday (through Amazon) and it was here on Friday. Now that's service!   Anyway, despit

Weekly Update - 7/2

Intro This is the first Weekly Update of the rest of your life, also, the first one from my new place. But that's the topic of another entry. You guys are here for BZPower stuff, I'm sure.   Updates And there's not much. It's a holiday weekend and all, and we're busy.   The BBC Contest deadline has been extended until July 10th, and we've announced some pretty awesome (and appropriate) prizes for it. Huge thanks to Cryoshell, the team at Advance, and Kelly for hooking us up. Don't you want t

Weekly Update - 6/25

Intro It is summer at long last. That means summer break for all you kids and lots of nice, warm weather. It doesn't mean a stop for the Weekly Updates either!   Updates To start things off, recently there have been a couple instances of members' accounts being compromised and used to spread inappropriate messages. If you see the forums go offline, or receive a notice that you have a new PM that suddenly disappears, this is probably the reason. We're constantly looking for ways to improve the

Weekly Update - 6/18

Intro It is Friday yet again, and, horrible ref calls aside, it's a pretty decent Friday. A perfect Friday, you might say, for an update.   Updates Unfortunately, there's not a huge amount to update about, but I'll see what I can do.   We had a review last week of a rather small and seemingly-inconsequential set. But we here at BZPower think every set is important, and hope to bring you a wide range of reviews, from large to small. So, like we said when we started reviewing non-Bionicle sets

Weekly Update - 6/11

Intro Welcome back to our update that takes place each week. After last week, it's going to be a bit hard to follow up after those sig guidelines from last week.   Updates Lots of BrickFair news this week. Benjamin posted up some BrickFair shipping info for sending your MOCs and artwork to the event. I hope to see a lot of your creations there! In other news, there's been some mosaic news - we need your help with it!   We recently discovered word on a new Hero Factory set that's coming out a
