Weekly Update - 6/4

Intro I welcome you once again to this hebdomadal update of mine. Boy do we have things to discuss. Let's get started!   Updates As I foresaw last week, we had a set review go up - Jet Ray by Darth Vader. People don't seem to like the Ben 10 sets that much, although Pat does see some MOCing potential in the many new parts that appear in these sets.   We also posted a reminder about BrickFair, if you're attending or want to send in MOCs, be sure to read it. As always, it's sure to be a great

Weekly Update - 5/28

Intro Here we are, two entries in two days, something a cool and something boring and periodic (I'm assuming the boring part since comments seem to be on the decline). Anyway, stand back and prepare to be updated!   Updates New set review went up this week. Hopefully another one will appear this weekend. It may even make some people slightly more pleased than some of the previous reviews. I'm not sure why though, that Imperial Flagship is amazing.   Not much else has been going on in the wor

Graduation

So today was a big day - I finished that school thing called college. It's been a long, hard road, but it's finally done. I got all gussied up in a cap and gown and stoles so I could march in a procession, cross a stage, and receive several pieces of paper that are all I have to show for the large amount of money that was spent on my education.   I had been really worried about the weather, first they were saying it was going to be 90°, then there was a chance of thunderstorms, but in the end i

Weekly Update - 5/21

Intro The end of the week is here, which means it's time for an update of weekly proportions (that is to say, not very big).   Updates For all you story fans out there, the final chapter of Reign of Shadows went up this week. Another chapter closes, but that leaves room for new ones to open! Yay! Well, if you like that sort of thing anyway.   In other news, someone discovered the LEGO Multimedia Station on iTunes. I'm trying to find out some more information about it, but nothing yet. So fa

Weekly Update - 5/14

Intro One of these days, I'm going to take the week off. The question remains: will people be shocked and awed, or will no one really care?   Updates Valenti reviewed the TIE Defender, a set which I admire. I look forward to a sale so I can pick it up - personally for $35 I'd buy it. If you're still unconvinced, go back and read the review again. Think of how many X-Wings you could take down in that thing. (The answer is a LOT: I've played TIE Fighter longer than I should admit, I know.)   S

Weekly Update - 5/7

Intro I suppose it is that time again. I'll have to tear myself away from the Halo: Reach Beta for a bit to write some things up for you guys. Here we go!   Updates It's going to be interesting finding stuff to talk about now. All the major story updates are done and gone, so Bionicle news is going to be hard to come by. You guys are going to have to accept that we're going to be posting more general LEGO stuff on the front page. Such is life.   Speaking of which, Jason posted a set review e

Weekly Update - 4/30

Intro How did it get to be this late on a Friday already? I'm glad the semester is just about over. But you probably don't care about that.   Updates Go check out the latest episode of the BZPowercast! It's nice and short this time. Let us know if you like this or if you prefer longer shows.   So Journey's End and the Mata Nui Saga both concluded this week. If you haven;t checked them out yet, you're missing out.   I have so many mailbag questions to answer this week that I don't have time

Weekly Update - 4/23

Intro Slow week and a busy night. That's the perfect recipe for a short update.   Updates So, we're planning on trying to do some stuff for BrickFair in August. If you have any ideas for things we should plan, like contests, or giveaways, or other things we can involve all of you guys in, let me know!   We're trying to wrap up some other longstanding projects. But the end of April and May means finals for a lot of us, which equals no free time.   And there you have it.   Mailbag Nothing t

Intro It is that time of week again, time for the Weekly Update! Aren't you all so excited?   Updates So we had some promotions tonight. Congrats to Ta-metru_defender, Turakii #1 Lavasurfer, Toa_Velox, Nuju Metru, and 55555.I have every faith that they will perform admirably on the staff. Hopefully this will keep us well-staffed for a while now.   If you haven't already, go take a survey for LEGO. They value all of your feedback, just give some honest answers.   Behind the scenes, the BZPow

Weekly Update - 4/9

Intro Is it Friday yet? Oh, it is! Shoot, that means I need to crank out a Weekly Update!   Updates So we have some awesome contests going on that you should check out: Blog Contest #2 - I talked about this with Nukaya in the last Powercast. If you like to travel or think about faraway places, you should make a cool blog theme and enter this. BBCC #58 - For reals, this time. It's sad to think that many of you weren't alive in the 80s. You have my condolences. They were awesome. Also, you ma

Weekly Update - 4/2

Intro So, it's been an interesting couple of days. I guess retirement just wasn't in the cards for me. Lucky you guys!   Updates So, you should definitely check out the new animations that we mentioned here and here. Despite what many have said, I'm pretty sure they're not actual stop-motion, since the parts like elbows and knees are seen bending. All the same, it looks pretty cool, and you should check it out.   We also posted our ninth episode of the BZPowercast! You should listen! It's a

Weekly Update - 3/26

Intro You guys get a very early update this week, since I'll be leaving for Boston shortly to go to PAX East!   Updates Short update this week.   I encourage you to check out the awesome pictures LEGO sent us of the upcoming Hero Factory sets. They provide a good look at these sets, with better contrast in some cases than the ones Yannick and I took at ToyFair.   We have some more reviews coming for you soon, and other stuff too. So keep your eyes peeled.   Mailbag 1. Loving are caring

Weekly Update - 3/19

Intro It's time for some updates, given to you on the normal weekly basis. What do we have in store for you this week?   Updates The story updates have been coming fast and furious. I hope all you story guys are enjoying it.   We're going to have a cool announcement for you on Monday, so stay tuned for that. LEGO is pretty awesome, and they like to share awesome things.   You may have noticed the forums were offline for a bit last weekend - that was the database maintenance we had planned.

Weekly Update - 3/12

Intro You know, it's really quite amazing that I do fifty-two of these each year. I'm such a glutton for punishment, or as some would say, a masochist. Oh well, here we go.   Updates These week has really been kind of slow. There were the two Mata Nui Saga and one Journey's End updates, but those were to be expected.   There was supposed to be some maintenance this weekend, but due to some other issues (not the ones we were going to be maintenance-ing) we had to delay it. I'll do my best to

Imitating Other Members

I just thought I'd point out that there is a rule about imitating other members. This includes copying their name, avatar, signature, etc. It's been around for almost four years and is stated very clearly.   Now normally it is up to the member being copied to report such a thing. Just because, however, a member is banned does not make it OK to break the rules.   Oh, and as if it needed reminding: banned members are not to be discussed.   Thanks everyone, I appreciate your cooperation.

Intro Sometimes the weeks go by so fast I feel like someone installed a flux capacitor in my car. Well, here goes nothing!   Updates I'm sure everyone's favorite news item this past week was Smeagol4's review of the Large Pink Box. I told him he was crazy for doing it, but he just laughed and kept right on going. But hey, it's LEGO and we're a LEGO fansite, so you guys will have to learn to live with some interesting reviews here and there.   Of course since it's March now that means the Fe

Weekly Update - 2/26

Intro Since most of my time tonight has been spent on the mailbag, you don't get anything else in this weekly update.   Updates Just kidding!   We wrapped up our Toy Fair coverage this week, looking at Bionicle, Ben 10, some Hero Factory, the rest of Hero Factory, and some games and LEGO Universe. I hope you all enjoyed it. I know Yannick and I did.   Another set review was posted this week; Bfahome reviewed the Wreck Raider to some mixed reactions. Get used to it guys. We'll still talk abo

Mass Effect 2

I beat Mass Effect 2 tonight (yay, less than a month!). I thoroughly enjoyed the game and will definitely be playing through it again in the future. While at first I wasn't sure how I liked the toned-down RPG nature of it, it definitely grew on me. There are still some things I would have liked to see back, but oh well.   My two biggest gripes are scanning planets (soooo tedious) and the difficulty in getting money. In the original game you could easily but every weapon from every vendor, which

Up

So I finally saw Up tonight. I laughed. I cried. It was an amazing movie. Highly recommended for all.   It just happens to be the only movie nominated for best picture at this year's Oscars that I've seen. But, based on what I've heard, if Avatar wins over it I'm going to lose all faith in those awards. Oh wait, that already happened in the 1994 Oscars, nevermind...   But yeah, it was an excellent movie and may make its way into my top ten favorites of all time.

Weekly Update - 2/19

Intro Welcome back to our heavily Toy Fair-themed Weekly Update.   Updates While I'd love to talk about Toy Fair this whole time, there's actually been a bunch of things happening recently.   First up, the thirteenth and fourteenth chapters of the Mata Nui saga have been posted. In addition, the first chapter of The Journey's End has gone live as well.   In other Bionicle.com news, Agori Defender went live too. It's a fun little Tower Defense game that's pretty diverting too.   In controve
