If you happen to be 14 or younger AND live near one of the brand stores you might want to go to the nearest LEGO STORE next week and enter the Speed Squad. The winner gets a 14k gold plated kanoki disk and everyone who enters gets a kanoki card AND a vahi (the orange mask of time that was only available back in 2001 from walgreens)

heads-up for Bionicle fans Jan. 13th, 2004 @ 09:28 am
Toys for the 2004 storyline "Metru Nui" are showing up at various retailers. More information on Metru Nui should debut on the official Bionicle website in February!

Apparently, Burger King in the UK has had a Bionicle: Mask of Light promotion since November 24th... no idea whether it's still going, as I'm in the wrong geographical location to check. :(

And finally, for anybody with younger siblings (or a taste for the medieval):

Bionicle now has a companion line called "Knights' Kingdom". Like Bionicle, "Knights" features dynamic action figures that you build yourself. On the website, you can see Episode 1 of the Knights' Kingdom comic, as well as all kinds of background information on the series, the history of knights, and of course the action figures themselves.

I'm kind of hoping that the Knights' Kingdom figures will be compatible with Bionicle, so that we have even more parts to work with, but it looks like they might have totally new parts and a new system of construction.

LEGO and creativity... sort of? Aug. 27th, 2002 @ 08:10 am
Don't know if any of you have seen this yet, but there's an... odd thread on BionicleZone, one of the bigger LEGO: Bionicle message boards.

Real Bionicle Spells.

If this is a serious post, then it appears that some young people (God, I hope they're just kids) are being inspired to engage in amateur spell-casting...


Thoughts? Concerns? Ideas about how to combat the inevitable "BIONICLE IS THE DEVIL!!!" e-mails?

CG still from Mask of Light? Aug. 5th, 2002 @ 10:43 am
Maybe. Maybe not.

» Mini-Review: Bohrok Queens
Is it just me, or do Cahdok and Gahdok sound like a vaudeville comedy duo?

They're Cahdok and Gah-dok
They're two of a kind
Their clicky-twisty jointed legs
Will really blow your mind!

They're Gahdok and Cah-dok
Like a binary star
They snap and bite and chomp and fight
Until you yank the bar

Cahdok and Gahdok
Gahdok and Cah-dok
Oh... what a wack-y pairrrrrrr...

In summary:

The Bohrok Queens come with neat poseable joints. They are truly to be marvelled at, and are heartily recommended. They also come with extra parts that are only used in the combined form.

» New McDonalds Promo and sets
No toys this time around, but McDonalds is currently offering Bionicle cards and one of three mini-comics when you get a Mighty Kids meal. As usual, you can pay less than the meal-price to just get the cards and comic, with amount depending on the individual restaurant.

In other news, the Boxor (Matoran defense vehicle) is now out, and the Master Builders set (with 100+ pieces and instructions for building 15 of the Mata Nui animals from the various games, although not at the same time) can be ordered from shop.lego.com. The Exo-Toa and Cahdok & Gahdok (Bohrok Queens) have been spotted in Singapore and will probably be making their way here within a few weeks.
» Master Builders, anyone?
Looking for reviews/opinions/creative original modifications of the LEGO Bionicle Masterbuilders kit. What's it like? What can you create aside from the critters suggested in the booklet? Why is it that MOC is such a popular interest in LJ, and yet most of the communities that list it have the phrase "Make Out Club" in their name?

In other topics, does anyone have a good method of storing and organizing LEGO and Bionicle parts? I've been storing parts in the tin/canisters that the Toa come in, so that all of my Major Limbs are in the Tahu tin, and all of the Connecting Bits are in Gali's tin, etc. However, I'm finding that this takes up quite a bit of space on my desk.
