A More Functional Power Brick Posted by Richard on February 28, 2014 at 12:59 AM CST:
It was bound to happen, with everyone making docks for their devices out of LEGO® bricks, it only makes sense that someone would mold a platform for LEGO&bricks around a battery. You could of course build a box around one you already own but this streamlined buildable battery I saw on CNET is a good way to go if you don't have a battery already. I'm not certain its officially licensed, the power brick itself lacks the LEGO logo on it's studs but the bricks it comes with appear to be official. The shopping page appears to have honored The LEGO Company's fair use guidelines and even uses the logo, though not on the package of the power brick itself as far as I can see. Forum link.
Platinum Avohkii Changes Hands Once More Posted by Richard on February 18, 2014 at 10:26 PM CST:
Congratulations to "Mask Collector", who BZPower reports has finally managed to purchase the Platinum Avohkii for a mere $15,000.00 USD, roughly half the seller's original asking price if I recall correctly. Forum link.
14 K Gold Hau Changes Hands Posted by Richard on December 23, 2013 at 10:11 PM CST: As seen on BZPower, one of the limited 14 K Gold Hau masks have changed hands again. This one was originally owned by Kelly who won it for placing first in his age group in a BIONICLE® website design contest. It later sold on eBay to our very own Philip Wise, who has now sold it to BZPower member "Mask Collector". Forum link.
First Look At New Hero FactoryŽ Figures Posted by Richard on November 18, 2013 at 12:06 PM CST: As reported on BZPower's website, some of next year's Hero Factory sets can be seen among additions to a number of themes. Instead of full sized Hero models, the baggisters contain a minifigure Hero, one or more four legged creatures, and either a mech for the mini hero to pilot or a giant beast to act as a proper opponent to the mechs. The mechs themselves have containment units that are probably for the safe capture of the smaller creatures, which bear a resemblance to the miniature jump-attack visorak from BIONICLE®'s playset days.

Rokenbok Sale, $209.98 USD Kit For $129.99 Posted by Richard on August 22, 2013 at 09:05 PM CST:
For those of you who don't limit your building collection to LEGO® products, Rokenbok is having the first decent sale I've seen from them in a while. Rokenbok is a construction themed toy line, with expensive (but brilliant) RC vehicles that each have a functional purpose. I do wish they had a multivehicle set on sale, but free shipping and an $80.00 set for free with the purchase of a ROK Works Construction & Action Set is not bad. Forum link.
