Official Voltron LEGO Set Coming Posted by Richard on August 3, 2017 at 07:39 PM CST:
If your a BIONICLE® fan, chances are you may be interested in this robotic action figure, even if it's built in system instead of CCBS or technic. As posted on Gizmodo's sister site i09, len_d69's design from LEGO® Ideas will be turned into a set. True to the source material, the actual Voltron figure will be comprised of five smaller lions that open up to form the different parts of the robot, without any major reassembly. Forum link.

Megatron Steals Mask Of Control Posted by Richard on July 24, 2017 at 08:21 PM CST:
Megatron, who probably doesn't need an introduction, shares a few similarities with Makuta. Their both evil, and their names start with an "M". They are also mechanical beings. And now, it would appear they both wear the Mask of Control. Technically, it's "Knight Armor", and corresponds with the most recent Transformers movie, "The Last Knight". Forum link.
New Liteup Block Kits, Technic Compatible LEDs Posted by Richard on July 23, 2017 at 12:50 PM CST:
Jonathanwilson on our forums has stopped by a couple times lately to show off some lighting kits. The first was the Hotel Corner lighting kit, and the second (which I find more interesting) is the kit for the Mercedes-Benz Arocs. The second kit is designed to work with technic elements, which is typically better for BIONICLE® MOCs. Another notable improvement is the addition of power cables for the lights which can connect to newer LEGO power functions battery boxes.

The LEGO Company is hosting a SuperBots contest via Rebrick. I think they are looking primarily for moving creations powered by Mindstorms products, though the contest rules do not seem to exclude anything in particular so long as it's a robot or robot themed. Forum link.
