It turns out the BIONICLE 2015 poster is actually the back cover of a 2015 BIONICLE catalog that shipped with the new LEGO Club Magazine. There are no digital copies of this catalog yet, but Voriks Forge has uploaded scans of this new catalog. You can also check out all of these pages below. Of notable interest, the Mask of Time is confirmed to be present in this universe.

BMPRPG Experimental Game

The RPG has been on hold now for a very long time, so the leaders have created some new rules and are testing them out on the forums.  We also need some people who will act as guinea pigs and play the game so we can figure out what works and what doesn’t.  Plus, it’s just in time to be a Christmas present to everyone.

Merry Christmas everyone!

CGI Trailer with Character Animations

A 30 second CGI trailer of what looks like a BIONICLE TV commercial without narration has been making the rounds on the internet. It’s not yet clear what the origins of this video are, but what appears to be the original upload also features the character animations without narration. The quality is much lower than the character animations on the LEGO website, but it is unique and has been added to the archive.

With any luck, a higher quality version of these videos will appear in the coming weeks!

3 New Episodes and 6 Character Animations Released

Today LEGO has released not one, not two, but three new 1:30 animated episodes on the BIONICLE website! But wait, there’s more! They also release six 0:30 character animations for the Toa, absolutely free!

All joking aside, these episodes offer some tantalizing clues into the future of BIONICLE 2015, such as the ever-present Vahi and a closer look at the Temple of Time.

All 3 episodes and all 6 character animations have also been archived by the BMP team.
