Brick Magic Is Returning! Posted by Richard on February 9, 2015 at 06:02 PM CST:
The last I heard of Brick Magic it was taking a break, but after two consecutive years it's finally back, and with Brick Universe coming up in March, that gives local LEGO® enthusiasts two conventions within two months to look forward to. A copy of the email I received is in the link.
Retro News: February 1-10 2004 Posted by Richard on February 1, 2015 at 10:29 PM CST:
The LEGO® Company brings back the Duplo line, and BIONICLE® misses out on a T.O.T.Y. award this year. Mark gives us a look at the Takanuva themed Nike shoes, and provides us with two more posters. Metru Nui goes online, but the MNOG tittles go offline, and Dave reviews one of the new matoran.
They Saved The Best For Last Posted by Richard on January 28, 2015 at 11:00 AM CST:
If you scroll down to the very last picture of this page on Gizmodo, you may be able to make out some of the summer BIONICLE® sets. UPDATE: Read the details for some interesting things I've spotted, including the Mask Of Creation! Forum link.
The Protectors Power Up Two Packs Posted by Richard on January 26, 2015 at 01:06 AM CST:
You can now buy the Protectors in a two pack with thier respective Elemental Master. The price does not seem any cheaper than buying them individually, hopefully they at least come with the instructions to power up the Toa with thier weaponry. Perhaps they even have new packaging, either shrink wrapped together with an insert or maybe a bigger box containing both sets? If you order a protector power up set, please let us know! Forum link.

Dave acquires all six Toa Metru and provides his thoughts on them. A new interactive ride features BIONICLE® at LEGO® Land, while three new Master Builders are selected. A WMKK also makes its way to eBay, and I wonder if there's a pattern with collectibles showing up in auctions about the same time I mention them in the Retro News?
BIONICLE® Insert In Shop@Home Deliveries Posted by Richard on January 21, 2015 at 06:13 PM CST:
I ordered some power functions parts for an upcoming project and recieved this post-card sized insert. I'm guessing they've been included with deliveries before January since it's a "coming-soon" poster and past the date listed. Forum link
Want To Help Someone Complete A BIONICLE® Collection? Posted by Richard on January 15, 2015 at 08:24 PM CST:
You may already be aware of Mask Collector's attempts to get the first truly complete BIONICLE® collection, perhaps you have one of the last 8 pieces he needs for his collection and would rather have some cash or another rare collectible instead? Updated again, only 8 to go!
Protector Of Ice Review Posted by Richard on January 14, 2015 at 09:15 PM CST:
Protector Of ice is a great deal for the price, including several interesting parts that are great for custom creations, on top of the Protector Of Ice being a fun model in his own right. I find no reason not to recommend him unless your on a budget and might benefit from the parts unique to other Protector models.
