I liked Tahtorak and Ancient, which won their respective contests. It was neat that characters like Darkness were cool enough to be incorporated into the dark hunter lore. But the real cringe shit are the paragraphs some 4th graders wrote about their figures. Real donut steel stuff, like “my character was a former toa who beat five makuta in a fight but got fused with a rakshii. Now he doesn’t speak but he’s stronger than the shadowed one x5”
>>
>>7271268
Wasn't there one who could copy physical abilities just by watching for a bit? Pretty fucking cool power, but the whole article was the Shadowed One wanking him off punctuated with "and I keep his girl in the basement so he never finds her and keeps working for me."
Actually, that last bit is kind of a neat idea.
>>
>>7271268
I wonder what percentage of that book was kids submitting their edgelord shit and Greg embellishing the kids' ideas with his own edgelord shit. I'd be tempted to write the whole thing off as just kids being kids, but then you have stuff like Greg's serials and OCs which likewise feel like they were thought up by some edgy teen.

So... you only like the rahi and the toa mata?

I’ll keep it real with you, the people in this thread who bought six identical characters over and over are the same people who buy different variations of Star Wars troopers, or repairs of different spider-men. It’s a collectors mindset
>>
honestly the worst thing that happened for bionicle is greg taking over a major aspect of the creative direction of the series. he doesn't understand subtlety & usually equates battles down what the plot demands. there is really no need for dozens of pages on character perspective & otherworld journeys, nor is there a need for a scientific explanation for the reason every single organism inside of the MU is able to blink their eyes.
i don't give a fuck about the league of shadows because they don't ever do anything in the immediate plot. i don't give a fuck about helryx & the illuminati because they only appear after the fact. makuta was reduced to cartoon villain. notsatan is a joke at best, for appearing threatening at first but then fucking off & dying whenever later. the piraka have difficult to remember names & the personality of the honeycomb mascot. the idea of additional makuta is rendered utterly pointless by the predetermined plot the gods making teridax the special makuta & the others just jokes at best.

his focus on what is cool & why, is not a bad one for a children's' toyline and he has made some good decisions overall (like supposedly forcing lego to keep the original toa around). but that direction lacks any of the substance really found in the earlier stories. the "why" behind bionicle just becomes increasingly frustrating outside of the animations, movies, games, & "non canon" material.
[spoiler]tldr: i feel greg & lego took the "bio-machines" of bionicle a bit too literally instead of figuratively[/spoiler]

Could I just say it was stupid of them to use the Maori Mythology Names without sounding like a bleeding heart tosser?

It's like the angels in Evangelion. I don't really care if it offends people that it "misappropriates" someone's culture but if you're not gonna even bother to even allude to the original mythology it's just distracting.
>>
>>7279034
Apparently they did play around with the idea of lifting more elements from the "source material", see the tribal dances and the allusions to Papu and Rangi, but they scrapped those when the Maori began bitching. So the names were all that were left.
>>
>>7279034
>I don't really care if it offends people that it "misappropriates" someone's culture but if you're not gonna even bother to even allude to the original mythology it's just distracting.

Bionicle had a lot of allusions to Polynesian culture, not just the names. Aesthetics, music, worldbuilding, etc.
Plus, pretty much every fantasy rips off a real life culture to some degree, so it's nothing too out of the ordinary as far as world creation goes.

I'm itching for deep lore discussion ever since I read the entire chapter book compilation.

>As the passage widened again, Helryx saw more creatures. These obviously were Rahi beasts, but not like anything she’d seen before. They were short, pale bipeds, with large yellow eyes and spindly arms and legs. They backed away and moved to the side as she and her ally passed. But as soon as the two had moved on, they assembled into a group and followed close behind.
Anyone ever take a guess at what these were?

>>
>>7281545
Actually yes. Makuta was shitting himself to the point of making a truce with a Toa out of all beings in the Universe.
Also imprison him in the protodermis equivalent of epoxy resin for almost an entire millenia and taking away the means of accelerating (I am not entirely sure if this was the idea) his master plan twice qualifies as halting his plan.
>>
>>7281661
You got your times mixed up tho. Makuta was trapped for like one year and his pact with Vakama to stay away was the one that lasted 1000 years.
>>
>>7281684
So, one year between the events of 2004 and 2005, another one year truce and then 1000 years on Mata Nui with Makuta pissing the whole population off I suppose?

It's a pity they made Toa Dume and Nidhiki into Norik and Iruini, but at least we later got a proper mask for Nidhiki through Defilak. But then Greg went and made Mahri Nuparu's mask mold into Nidhiki's canon mask.
Can someone take a photo of Matau Metru wearing Defilak's mask?

You are tasked with making a Bionicle game or have the opportunity to make a fangame with Lego's approval. What would be your ideal game?
>Genre
>Setting (Gen 1 or 2? Location? Story period?)
>What is it about
>Any special/main feature

I have an idea but I am concerned if it is too much of a lorerape
>RPG/Hack and Slash
>Gen 1. Metru Nui, between the defeat of Makuta and the return of the Toa Metru
>The main sinopsis is that you are some kind of a renegade Toa "hired" by the Order into doing some tasks on the damaged city (rescuing characters and artifacts, help imprisoning criminals) and fighting enemies of different factions as everyone wants to rule after the power vacuum that the Great Cataclysm has left,that would include the beggining of the Visorak invasion and /trying/ to stop it. There would be both canon and non-canon (OC) characters as allies and enemies.
>Customization
>Miramax style
>Exploration by many means of transport(foot, those legged vehicles,chutes, Kikanalo and even flight if possible)
>Each Metru would provide different resources and services, while Ga Metru would be ideal to find "sacred" weapons (aka special weapons) Ta Metru is where you can forge armor, weapons and Kanoka disks that can be used as ammunition or to create masks
>Mask+Toa Tool+Elemental power combat. Depending on the mask and weapon equiped the abilities that you can use are different. For example if you have a two handed firearm or dual blasters ala Kongu you wouldn't generally be able to use Elemental power with it, meanwhile some masks have no use in a battle like the Kaukau or Rau but have other uses, and if you had a Hau and some swords you would be able to deal elemental damage by chanelling your power, melee damage and get a temporary protection due to the mask when active.

I highly doubt it. Contraction is dead right now as a subtheme. The only viable buildable figs Lego has are licensed and system based(Minecraft), and every other venue they tried with CCBS was a dead end.

I'm pretty sure if they try Bionicle again it's System or bust.

Believe me I tgink so as well, but you gotta look at it from the company's perspective. The risk/reward factor of reviving Bionicle a third time as a Constraction theme but this time with more marketing I feel they would see as too dangerous to attempt. Modern Lego would rathe rplay it safe and keep the Contraction subtheme off the table for now. Hell, there aren't even any rival companies that I can think of that are doing constructable figures atm and making serious bank off of it. It's just not a thing like it was back in the 2000s.

They did a mediocre job of the 40th anniversary minifig series. Half of them were just nobodies in costumes. No classic space, adventurers, or anything that would've been obvious. Just the Policeman, Rocket Racer, and the Castle dragon guy. So no, if they do anything at all, it'll be disappointing. Maybe put another gold MoCr in a polybag or some shit with some stickers.

Hey again, /toy/. I’m back with my 3D printed bionicle bootlegs. I’ve gotten some stuff right and some stuff wrong, right now I’m focused on getting a good model that I can use as a base for other figures and making a little packaged deal where you get a keychain with each purchase. The little black one in the back is a failed attempt at modifying the existing model but I screwed up the scale. Again, if anyone wants the current model for their own prints just ask and I’ll put it up. Next step for right now is going full bionicle bootleg and designing little helmets for them in place of masks

Thanks!

It's easier to list what's right with it which is more or less nothing.

>motor is underpowered for the model
>all-terrain tow truck that is nearly incapable of driving over an obstacle due to this
>can't steer for shit
>no real suspension and everything is just loose
>no truck bed which makes it looks like as if the model is missing at least one bag of parts
>flimsy lift arm
>wobbly doors and grille guard
>awful proportions for the car interior
>wrong bear

And much more - all this for the low, low price of 250 bucks.

The only thing 'failure' of G2 was Lego failing to support and promote it. It was never given a fair shake to start with. It's pretty well documented they abandoned Bionicle to push their system big bangs like Ninjago and Nexo instead. Sweet mistress karma paid them back for it too. Ninjago Movie flopped hard and Nexo died fast.

We have asses. We can make our own shit, like maskmaker anon or the one with the little robots. It's either that or waiting for hell to freeze over.

Armchair is a tranny?
Anyway I'd say the reason is BZP as it is filled with Biosoy from what I have seen in previous threads.

Because being trans is trendy. It's a way to gain free oppression points especially if you're white.

Not him but I'd like to add that Disney's designs aren't making the toyline any favours. Btw unrelated, Dark Helmet's design in Spaceballs parodies Mickey Mouse. It's ironic that years later the Mouse bought SW (and made a mockery out of it).

Supposedly a Jazz toy had MAGA written on it's doors in cybertronian. The toys were recalled and the guy responsible fired.

He's both a black guy and white, if you include his decals then he's even got the colors of the Murican flag, plus he's a high-ranking official, so you could spin it a bunch of different ways.

I wonder though if this is why many places sell this particular fig for relatively cheap. Or maybe the toy just sucks, and they can't sell it otherwise.

MAAAAAAAAAAAN, these are so awesome!
Coming to think of it, if Lego decided to capitalize on nostalgia and adult collectors (possibly making an entire Geedubs-like branch) and hired a shit ton of competent writers so much could be done with the more serious tone of the story. Oh well, at least I still got my old pieces in a bin.
Too bad I moved to another town and have a horrible, barely containable desire to whip up something from said pieces.

Autism is a thing quite common in the toy hobby. Not even taking the piss, it just is. And I've noticed autistic people tend to make these big shifts in their personality/lifestyle either because their tendancy to overobsess with shit, or their want to fit in more. If someone says they found out they like Gali and later found out they're trans, someone like armchair reads that and immediately thinks "ah yes I must be a woman".

I'm one of the autists who buys sets for pieces, I don't even order individual parts. I bought that Nexo Knight set just for Krakenskull. I'm pretty sure he goes for around $10 now, and I hope LEGO brings back that helmet in another set.

I haven't made too much progress (I just started a month ago), but I did work out several things:

>You can easily replace the benny system with the UDD one from Lost Chronicles without too much fuss.
>I'll need to balance out races.
>Different magic systems: Kanohi use is more like a superpower, Elemental/Toa energy is more like an arcane background

I wouldn't mind help naming the setting though. The working title is "Realm of the Great Spirit", since it's going to be very focused on pre-Cataclysm stuff.
