BIONICLE: Masks of Power Video Game First Look

In addition to being LEGO’s 89th birthday, it is also BIONICLE Day or 810NICLE Day. To celebrate the day, Team Kanohi has given a first look at BIONICLE: Masks of Power which is an open world adventure game that retells the stories of BIONICLE. Using Unreal Engine 4, the game has been in the works for five years. There is a planned demo coming soon but no release date announced at this time. You can wishlist it now over on Steam.


LEGO Supports BIONICLE: Quest for Mata Nui Fan Made Game

If you’re a fan of the LEGO BIONICLE theme, you may have known about a fan made open world game called BIONICLE: Quest for Mata Nui and LEGO has finally acknowledged it and are supportive of it. CrainyCreations, who has been developing it for six years, has been in contact with The LEGO Group and LEGO Games to discuss the future of the game. The game itself is set in the world of LEGO BIONICLE and it “retells the 2001 story of the Toa Mata’s quest for the Kanohi Masks of Power, culminating in their battle against Makuta.”

As many fans are aware, there is a fan made BIONICLE game 6 years in the making that was announced a few months ago. Recently the creator of the game made a statement online about speaking directly to TLG. I can confirm that CrainyCreations has been in touch with TLG. Statement below:

A message from LEGO Games:

“We can confirm CrainyCreations, the creators behind “Bionicle: Quest for Mata Nui”, was in dialog with us (i.e. LEGO Games) to discuss the future plans of the game including ways the project can continue to exist. We see game development as an exciting opportunity to add new way to engage with the LEGO brick. In the LEGO Games team, we are always looking for ways to inspire and encourage the fan community including a recently BETA launched LEGO Microgame in partnership with Unity. Perhaps this can help give others the tools to do what CrainyCreations has done by encouraging and making

LEGO BIONICLE to be Discontinued at End of 2016


You may or may not have read about it this morning but today marks a sad day in the LEGO community as LEGO has announced that LEGO BIONICLE will be discontinued at the end of 2016 after a two year run.

LEGO BIONICLE was pretty popular when it came back in 2015 and the CCBS community was back in full swing with the revival. There’s no mentioning on why LEGO has decided to end the theme but safe bets are due to lack of sales. LEGO did mention that the final wave of BIONICLE sets will be coming to Europe and North America but will not be released in Asia and the Pacific markets. This usually happens when themes or subthemes are ending such as LEGO Legends of Chima and the LEGO Star Wars Planets sets.


Fans, today we have to share the news with you that we have made the tough decision to discontinue LEGO® BIONICLE® at the end of 2016. NETFLIX has just started streaming the final two episodes of “The Journey to One” the ending of which, will put an end to any speculation about the future of LEGO® BIONICLE®.

With the 2015 relaunch of LEGO® BIONICLE®, we set out to revive a childhood favorite of fans worldwide, and bring it to a new group of children who were too young to have known and played with LEGO® BIONICLE® Generation 1. From your wonderful feedback over the last


LEGO Bionicle Toys R Us Promotion

Toys R Us is having a new promotion this month where you can get a free LEGO Bionicle set with purchases of $40 or more. You can choose between Skull Warrior (70791), Skull Slicer (70792), or Skull Basher (70793). This promo is obviously to move out older inventory to make way for the summer 2016 sets but it’s nice to get a fairly larger set instead of polybags. The promo is available in stores and online and it lasts until July 23.

The upcoming summer 2016 images of the LEGO Bionicle sets have been uploaded to Toy R Us’ website which includes the descriptions of the sets. The only set missing is the Quake Beast (71315) which could mean that it’s another store exclusive.
