Raspberry Pi Build-On Case Posted by Richard on September 23, 2017 at 07:50 PM CST:
The Raspberry Pi is a popular open source affordable computer. It even has third party kits to connect and drive official LEGO® motors. While you can build a case out of authentic LEGO® elements, it looks like someone has developed a case with compatible studs built on. Having built a case out of LEGO® bricks myself, I can say from experience that the slimmest design I could make was not particularly easy to use, so a form fitting case like this may be perfect for your project.

MOC: "The Big Chungus" by KanakAttack Posted by Richard on September 1, 2017 at 08:25 PM CST:
Forum member KanakAttack made this creation out of a bit of the loot he got from BrickFair Virginia. It is an excellent combination of BIONICLE® and system elements, and used a variety of impressive construction techniques. Forum link.

MoD reader Chris attended BrickFair 2017, and was kind enough to send us his pictures from the event. I understand his missed a few things due to time constraints,but photographed the majority of content at the event. You can see the albums here or in the full story.
SuperBots Challenge Deadline Approaching Posted by Richard on August 14, 2017 at 10:58 PM CST:
August 18th is the last day to enter Rebrick's SuperBots contest. It may be worth a look regardless of any plans to enter, as the entrants so far do not disappoint. 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.
LEGO Rebrick SuperBots Contest Posted by Richard on July 6, 2017 at 10:38 PM CST:
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.
