  1. Well that was a mess. We had the opportunity tonight to interview the contestants of LEGO Masters Season 2, which was supposed to run from 5-7 PM. Instead it ran until 8:30 PM. So apologies for the late start to the stream. Then we had some annoying technical issues affecting the audio and chat overlay, unfortunately. But we did make it through all three Battle Arena modes and use all of the power-ups, so three achievements were unlocked! And to be clear, it was awesome to talk to the LEGO Masters folks, and you'll certainly see content from that on our front page over the next week or more. It was just unfortunate that it ran into our stream.
  2. That definitely makes sense. Prior to this week's stream, I slightly reorganized my Dimensions sets so they were more easily accessible, and had already put the level packs in the front, since playing those first seemed logical. As far as Superman and Aquaman go, I really only had them out so my little display wouldn't seem so empty, but have their powers handy ended up helping. Just a happy coincidence!
  3. Fun fact: I was interviewed for this story but I guess they didn't like what I had to say. I'm pretty sure I have a print copy of it somewhere. Also, BZPower wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the two people mentioned here: Christian and Mike ran fan sites that eventually merged to become Kanohi Power, which merged with BZCommunity to become BZPower!
  4. Yeah, I definitely think that's where I'll start when I play again in a week and a half. Seems like it should be straightforward. Simpsons sounds like a plan, and I can show off the WIP of the display I've made for the Dimensions figures and vehicles. It's very basic at the moment, but there are plenty of characters and levels to check out so I'll be able to update it over time.

  6. I started looking at the Ninjago achievement list and saw all the dojos, so it looks like that will be where I head after the 2x multiplier. I'll try to do some more research into it over the weekend. I'm currently working my way through Season 12 of the show, so I think I'll be good on recognizing the characters. I'm looking forward to moving on to a new title!
  7. I certainly get what you're saying, but this is hardly the first time someone has resubmitted a model, or a very similar one, and gotten it to 10k again. I don't know for sure, but I'd guess it has something to do with the reasons for rejection. If it's a problem with the construction or size, then changing that could help it a second time. If it's a problem with the IP, well those things can change over time. For example if Mega has a license to an IP when an Ideas project is first submitted, which causes it to be rejected, then their license expires, submitting the project again could result in success the second time. I think the Ideas team is trying to be as flexible as they can be.
  8. Yes, this was quite the revelation! Speaking of online games, I'd also like to hear an episode about My LEGO Network, since that was quite the popular thing for a while back in the day.
  9. From my experience, the TTV folks are just as passionate about Bionicle and the fans as anyone is. In my opinion they took what they thought was a good idea and got themselves caught between competing groups of fans - it's going to be impossible to please everyone in this sort of situation.
  10. All good information! Next time we'll have to go to a new world and focus on amassing studs so I can purchase it. Out of curiosity, do you know of any lists of the characters and their abilities? It would be good to have that handy so I can come up with a collection of figs to focus on unboxing to be able to access all the areas and gold bricks and such.
  11. You could certainly share a link to it here!
  12. You make a very strong case there! I'll have to see about digging up those fun packs.
