There's only one story between these dates, and unfortunately the links are no longer in service. Jordan leads us to Toywiz, where we saw new images of what would become the Toa Inika, and some playset pictures. We also learn that Igniters was a stand-in name, similar to how the Krana were referenced as Power Brains.
Auto Lacing Shoes Made From LEGO Technic
Posted by Richard on February 3, 2017 at 09:40 PM CST:
Here's something interesting I spotted over on Gizmodo, a LEGO® technic machine designed to mimic the functionality of the ludicrously expensive self-lacing Nike shoes. I suppose it's more of a proof of concept, but it is still impressive. Forum link.

Evil(er) Tahu

I couldn't let Baxor have all the fun making Evil Tahu revamps. While far less complicated than Baxor's design last month, I went with something more traditional.

BrickUniverse Events Approaching
Posted by Richard on January 23, 2017 at 07:37 PM CST:
Brick Universe has several events coming up this year, the soonest being in Oklahoma City in the later half of March. Their Raleigh event in early April happens to be close to me, so Ill be attending with a large BIONICLE® display. If you happen to live close enough to attend any of these events, make sure you check out their respective T/AFOL sections to see if you can attend the private exhibition. If you bring something to put on display, your attendance may even be free. Forum link.

"Pylon, The Brute", By KanakAttack
Posted by Richard on January 21, 2017 at 09:16 PM CST:
Forum member KanakAttack created this beautiful mechanical character, showing off some exceptional use of CCBS parts blended with a few classic BIONICLE® pieces as well. "A renowned warrior from the distant planet Mechaniron, Pylon leads his legion of brutes into battle against all who oppose him."

We get sneak peeks of Axon And Brutaka hiding in the instruction manuals. A new game makes it's way to the Playstation 2. A reader sends in scans of the new artist's cover work.
BIONICLE REVOLUTION Coming To A Youtube Near You
Posted by Richard on January 7, 2017 at 09:10 PM CST:
Forum member Baxor sent me some links to a fan-made BIONICLE® film called BIONICLE REVOLUTION by FailSafe 42. If you don't mind the use of profanity, this particular trailer seems to show the upcoming film in it's best light. It combines BIONICLE with HERO FACTORY®, telling the tale of how one rose from the other, and an evil dictator trying to kill off the old races to make room for the new. Forum link.
LEGO Boost Robotics Kit
Posted by Richard on January 3, 2017 at 11:17 PM CST:
It looks like The LEGO® Company has made yet another robotics programming system, called LEGO® Boost. This appears to be something in between The LEGO Group's stem program dubbed "WeDo", and the full blown Mindstorms EV3. I first spotted it on Cnet, but after finding a lack of information there, I found a far more informative article here on Engadget. Forum link.
