LEGO Reveals Date for Bionicle Announcement
In a surprise move today, LEGO teased the release date for an announcement they would make this Friday, September 15th, for a new line. Obviously enough, claiming it was the Bionicle reveal would just be speculation, if it wasn’t for one very telling piece of confirming evidence.
Sharpeyed fan Bricklover2013 on Brickset’s comments today noticed that the image used in the Lego Group’s Google+ page actually had the name of the original file. Bionicle-4-new.jpg20140915-4177-5fuc51.jpg is what you can find if you view the url for the photo. Obviously enough, it is highly unlikely that Lego would include that in the photo url if it didn’t have some relevance to what was being shown. So yes, it is looking like Bionicle will in fact see some sort of announcement on Friday, September 19th.
While some fans have noted other clues, like the six colored pieces on the upper right and lower left being the six colors of the elements (with yellow substituting for brown), that url is pretty self-evident. There’s also now speculation as to if this means Bionicle will be featured at the New York ComicCon or not. I guess we’ll have to see what happens this Friday!
Lego’s announcement can be read below:
HUGE news! In 4 days time we´ll be revealing something very exciting. Let the guessing game commence!
