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.

There are also reports that the physical copy includes a BIONICLE poster, as seen here. This poster is not included in the digital copies of the magazine. If you have a copy you can scan, please contact us! We would love to have a high-quality digital copy!

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.

Check out the game here: http://biomediaproject.com/bmp/board/viewforum.php?f=29

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All 3 episodes and all 6 character animations have also been archived by the BMP team.

Pictures 0.1.3 G2 Release

A fairly large update has been made to the G2 pictures archive containing a bunch of new content from the BIONICLE website, Facebook page, and LEGO Shop @ Home. Until the pictures page is updated to accommodate G2 content, you can download the archive here.

Changelog:

• Added Facebook Master renders

• Added comics from the Characters pages

• Added Protector wallpapers

• Added stylized box art

• Added stylized renders of Toa, Protectors and combiners from the build pages

• Added transparent renders of Protector masks & tools

2015 Product Images

LEGO has just this morning put most of the 2015 BIONICLE sets on shop.lego.com, for those who can guess the URL. All the sets are listed as “Coming Soon on 1 Jan 2015”, so you can’t buy them yet, but most of them have their product images available for viewing. I’m not a big fan of looking at them through a little zooming window, so I downloaded them in full-resolution, 2400 x 2400, alpha transparent images, and uploaded them for your viewing pleasure. I was even able to get the images that aren’t viewable on the LEGO product pages. Click the images below to view the full resolution.
