BIONICLE® Tournament, Target Game, And Double Vip Sets Posted by Richard on March 21, 2015 at 10:17 AM CST:
I was looking at the LEGO® Store calendar that came with an order recently and saw a tournament on April 21, 22, and 23 where the best score at the end of each day wins a new BIONICLE® set. If you're not interested (or too old to participate) you can probably still try out the target game going on now and into April 26th, giving you plenty of time to practice for the tournament. There's also a double VIP event that appears exclusive to Onua and the Lord Of Skull Spiders set. I suspect part of the display I photographed earlier is likely the target field. Forum Link
You Can Buy Custom 3D Printed Masks On Shapeways Posted by Richard on March 18, 2015 at 08:09 PM CST:
You may have seen 00dude00's custom masks before, an Ignika modeled after the version originally shown in the comics in particular. You can now have one made to order via 00dude00's Shapeway page, a 3D printing service. I imagine the masks can vary significantly in quality due to the nature of their production, but I have to admit that Ignika is tempting for $15 USD. I've paid more than that for authentic masks, and while I'd normally avoid customs, I might have to make the excuse that this is a piece of art (which it is, that thing is beautiful) and a good way to try a 3D printed product.

2015 BIONICLE® Display And Promotional Posted by Richard on March 12, 2015 at 12:30 AM CST:
The LEGO® Company is really trying to get people to notice BIONICLE®. I was at the store the other day and they were giving out a collectible mask pack with every purchase, and this display took up the front and side windows.
Brick Magic Is Returning! Posted by Richard on February 9, 2015 at 06:02 PM CST:
The last I heard of Brick Magic it was taking a break, but after two consecutive years it's finally back, and with Brick Universe coming up in March, that gives local LEGO® enthusiasts two conventions within two months to look forward to. A copy of the email I received is in the link.
The Protectors Power Up Two Packs Posted by Richard on January 26, 2015 at 01:06 AM CST:
You can now buy the Protectors in a two pack with thier respective Elemental Master. The price does not seem any cheaper than buying them individually, hopefully they at least come with the instructions to power up the Toa with thier weaponry. Perhaps they even have new packaging, either shrink wrapped together with an insert or maybe a bigger box containing both sets? If you order a protector power up set, please let us know! Forum link.
Want To Help Someone Complete A BIONICLE® Collection? Posted by Richard on January 15, 2015 at 08:24 PM 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 8 pieces he needs for his collection and would rather have some cash or another rare collectible instead? Updated again, only 8 to go!
