Sorry about the late news, computer issues. Some of the highlights include MoD's first April Fools joke, a couple toa statues built out of brick, and a number of interesting MoCs including a combiner of combiners. The staff have also whipped up an interesting flash game, and recreated the iconic Krana hunting Kopaka.

This week's segment includes pictures of the Bohrok and Bohrok Va combiners, as well as the combiner/alternate model for Muaka And Kane-Ra. Dave's Alien themed Bohrok MOC is definatley worth a look, too. Lehvahk is also revealed to have been an Air Bohrok before being rewritten into a swampy one, and these are just a few of the interesting things in this segment.

"Cookie Crash" Stop Motion By Josef Lichtenberger Posted by Richard on March 10, 2013 at 03:45 PM CST:
Josef: "I made it for an animation lecture at my art university in Linz, Austria. It took me four days and over 2500 shots to realize this piece of film. I used 24 shots for each second of this short. I hope as many Bionicle fans as possible can see it, because I want to start a web series with my Bionicles. Maybe I will make a feature film some day, if there is enough response. Hope you enjoy my film as I enjoyed making it!"Youtube LinkEditors note: A word of caution, Tahu makes a particularly rude hand gesture, I encourage our younger readers who may not know better to get their parent's approval of the video first, and not to impersonate it.

In this segment we get to see the Bohrok combiners, but lack their names. A short article talks about The LEGO® Company working with a number of Maori individuals on how to use their culture's references properly. The Mata Nui Online Game gets an update, and the standalone snowball fight game pops up. Details also pop up about a card game event with a promotional card and krana prizes.
Fan Made Live Action Bionicle Movie Posted by Richard on March 1, 2013 at 09:46 AM CST:
The people behind the fan made live action throwbots adaptation are back again, this time working on a BIONICLE® movie of their own. You can see the trailer here. At the very least they have a good filming location and and a lovley vahi mask at their disposal. Forum link.

This retro news segment focuses on Toyfair and events held at the Toys R Us in Times Square, including the first release of the Vahi mask. Im especialy jealous that Dave got to put his MOC, Evil Tahu, into the Exo Toa on display. The two times I went to Toyfair, they were very clear about not touching anything, BIONICLE® in particular since there were a bunch of painted and prototype parts.
