Welcome to Tuesday! Won't you join us over at the BZPower Twitch channel
tonight starting around 7:30 PM Eastern for some more LEGO 2K Drive? I wouldn't say I've gotten the hang of it yet, but I'm still successfully progressing through the races, so hopefully that trend continues this evening. See you there!

Building a Big Pirate
It's been longer than I'd like since we last did a live stream, but tomorrow we're changing that! Come join us on the BZPower Twitch channel
at 1 PM Eastern where I'll be building 40504 A Minifigure Tribute, recreating the classic pirate Captain Redbeard!

LEGO Masters Junior is Coming to the US
A casting call
has gone out for LEGO Masters Junior, a spinoff of Fox's brick-based reality show. Now you can sign your kids up to be TV personalities and social media influencers! Filming will take place in late October and early November this year, so we can probably expect the show to premier next spring. I'm definitely curious to see what kinds of challenges the kids get to compete in and what sort of crazy builds they come up with!

Another Tuesday means another videogame stream! Swing by the BZPower Twitch channel
starting at 7:30 PM Eastern, if not a little before, to watch us play some more LEGO 2K Drive! It's been an interesting adventure so far as I make my way through a racing game, so let's see how that continues!

Let us not forget the events of twenty-two years ago today. We were here at Kanohi-Power and BionicleZone back then, and we all lived though 9/11/01 as a community. Twenty-two years later, we are still here, members are still here - and although it's been over two decades it's important to remember what happened in the hopes that we can keep it from ever happening again. The world is now different, as is our community that has lived through a difficult time - it is important to remember all those who lost their lives.

LEGO Masters US Season 4 Cast Revelaed
Earlier this week the contestants of Season 4 of LEGO Masters were announced. Allen over at The Brick Fan has the full list
of the twelve teams competing starting September 28th. There's not a lot of builders I'm familiar with, but I'm sure most Bionicle fans will recognize DuckBricks
! We'll have to see how he and the other builders do later this month!

The LEGO Group Announces Plans to Reduce Net Emissions to Zero
Late last week in a press release
, The LEGO Group shared their intent to "achieve net-zero emissions by 2050" with regards to greenhouse gases. This doubles-down (triples?) on their previous pledge to reduce their emissions by 37% in 2032. The company is working with the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi)
to develop a plan and goals to keep them on the right track. I look forward to seeing their progress over the next twenty-seven years and hope they reach their objective!
After a successful first foray into LEGO 2K Drive, we're revving up our engines for another night of racing! Come by the BZPower Twitch channel
starting around 7:30 PM Eastern (but usually before) to watch us cruise around the open world, facing challenges and finding rivals to defeat. See you all there!
