At this moment I am uploading the pictures for this year's BIONICLE® line, keep in mind some are still preliminary and it appears as though the person who assembled them for display didn't quite get everything right...

Toy Fair! Posted by Mark on February 9, 2007 at 08:33 PM CST:
The American International Toy Fair offically begins on Sunday, but once again The LEGO Group will be starting the party early with a preview on Saturday night. Imatron plans to be there, so we'll give you the best possible coverage we can.
The invitation promises "exclusive appearances and announcements about special consumer programs" as well as "a sneak peek at one of our most exciting new products ever!" That sounds a little more promising than this recent press release.
