MoD gets it's review copy of the Mask Of Light movie, as well as pictures of the Blockbuster exclusive Matoran and Toa Nuva packs. The story that goes with hunting down the sets is almost as interesting as the sets themselves. Rebelscum's Mark Hurray interviews Creative Capers on MoD's behalf, and we officially open up our first forum.
BZP's Adrian Confirms BIONICLEŽ's Return Posted by Richard on September 8, 2014 at 05:29 PM CST:
If this isn't proof of BIONICLE®'s return that BZPower reporter Adrian found, then the LEGO® Company is playing a cruel joke on us. Adrian did some guesswork with LEGO.com's products page urls and found a convincing piece of evidence, head on over to BZPower to check I out!

Matoro found a player-created toy store map in a game called Urban Terror (a game he described as like Counter Strike but better), and uploaded a short clip of the gameplay. Of course, most of the toys for sale are boxed LEGO® models.

The Mask Of Light movie is getting closer, with reviews popping up online, and Blockbuster Video getting some exclusive Toa Nuva and Matoran packages. The clues to the Seventh toa's location continue to trickle out, and Beyblade manages to put a dent in The LEGO® Company's profits.
Hero Factory Deals And Free Worriz' Fire Bike Posted by Richard on August 30, 2014 at 10:06 PM CST:
If you check out the Hero Factory shopping page, a number of sets have been discounted. It seems partway through writing this some of them have sold out, but Dragon Bolt (Now 13.98 USD) and Jet Rocka (Now $24.48) are listed as "Call for availability". Poor Ogrum must have been incredibly unpopular since he was marked all the way down to $2.98 before he sold out. Spend more than $50.00 online and they'll throw in a CHIMA WORRIZ' FIRE BIKE.

Want To Help Someone Complete A BIONICLEŽ Collection? Posted by Richard on August 27, 2014 at 10:37 AM 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 10 pieces he needs for his collection and would rather have some cash or another rare collectible instead?
IdentiToy Base Plate And Application Posted by Richard on August 23, 2014 at 11:19 PM CST: IdentiToy has released what appears to be a LEGO® brick compatible base plate intended to fit over an ipad/android screen to help create environments for your minifigures. The application for ios and android is free, so you can check compatibility with your tablet's resolution beforehand(which is nice for android users in particular), but the baseplate is $9.99 as an introductory price. I just hope you'll put a good screen protector on your tablet first. Forum link.
