>>10733669Because you need to get the rest from random blind mask packs

Do lime green pieces actually break more? I knew someone with hahli who didnt have any cracks that i know of, I have a few hand connector pieces in lime that dont seem brittle. The only pieces that break for me are the phantoka molds, regardless of color. Is there any actual evidence or proof of lime green being brittle? Maybe someone just broke some green parts and assumed it was because of the color and everyone started believing it. What are your experiences, gathered friends?
>>10735434I bought an Ehlek sealed and one of the hand pieces was cracked straight out of the box. Apparently it was an issue because Lego changed how their plastic is cooled, and there's something about the way the lime green pigment was made that made it more brittle. You have to make sure your lime green parts come from Keelerak or Nui Rama, otherwise you're one bad day away from losing the part.
>>10735049Bohrok Man and Noah Productions. Ignition 1 and 2 introduced me to generation one.>>10735455I heard about this. Why didn’t lego recall the defective lime green sets?
>>10735456It was probably too expensive, and this was when Lego was really hurting for cash so they changed the original formula to save some money in the first place.As for the 2008 joints, I asked about it a while back and someone gave this answer.>They're structurally unsound. A classic socket distributes the pressure from being forced apart into its base and a CCBS socket is thick enough to bear the strain either way, angleshit suffers from being both too thin at the tip and relying on a straight line to take the pressure rather than a curve. Better plastic might close the gap, as I suspect is the case with HF pieces, but it's still inferior to a classic socket of the same or better grade of plastic.
>>10735434Not all lime green, just like green released in 2007 (especially the second half of 2007), all 2008 parts regardless of color are equally brittle and arguably more brittle than the 2007 lime green. Lime green parts from all years before 2006 is fine, just like every other color, I'd say pre-2007, the main socket pieces to watch out for were 2004 metru matoran bohrok feet, and 2006 Visorak Thighs / Piraka Thighs.
>no new constraction theme in all the new lego leaks
>>10735658I still have some belief the rumors of 2025 aren't bullshit. I need to see more of the leaks and what parts are introduced first, because I have a strong feeling they're going to continue to refine the weird constraction/System hybrid they've been working on.
>>10735434I recently got a tanma miru, and the axle ended up being half broken. I've never had this happen with any other mask or piece, even the other Phantoka I did have. It's together, but wiggles when I have it in a headpiece. I need to find the relevant glue for it.
Finished another build. It's the Nui-Jaga combiner model this time. You can fit two Matoran on the bird, just like on the online game.
>>10735999Was it able to fit them before the modifications you made, or did it need those to work?
>>10736009They can fit without mods. The mods seen on my model are mostly just cosmetic.
>>10736015Dope, that's a fun addition to them. Had I known I'd have built a Kafu ages ago, I just never liked the look enough to tear apart my Nui-Jaga.
>>10736021Yeah, the base Nui-Jaga models do look really good, so I can see why you wouldn't want to do the combiner. I just have a preference for large Lego models, which most of the Bionicle combiners are.
>>10736024Do you have them up on display? I did the same for at least the larger rahi combiners, but I only have so much room at the moment to put other combiners together.
>>10735049>Qott: What kind of Bionicle videos do you prefer to watch? Reviews, lore, stop-motion, shitposts or…?I mostly watch review videos. I like seeing others opinions on the sets I own, and I also use them to determine what sets to buy next. I do enjoy lore videos as well. The Bionicle theme has so many good stories within it, so I'm more than happy to listen to muti hour long telling of the lore on YouTube. Good background noise while i do my house chores.
>>10736032I'll post a photo of my set up later today. I'm about to do a Rahkshi combiner build, so it's better for me to snap a photo of my set up after I'm done with that build. Just keep the thread open, and I'll send it to you.
>>10735670>>10735658If bionicle comes back they should just do the g1 system, there's lots of cool new technic pieces that can be used and i don't think anyone really cares about mixel or hero factory pieces. personally i probably won't buy any if they dont go back to that system, system hybrid and hero factory parts look like shit
>>10735049Full picture of this? It looks cool>>10735658Indeed it's over Asabro
The Rahkshi combiner is done! Now to place him on the shelf with the others!
>>10736032Here's the picture like I promised.
>>10736135Are your boxes in good condition? I kept all mine for a long time but most of them were stored poorly or chewed by one of my many cats, a few years back I ended up throwing out pretty much all of them since they werent in display-worthy shape at all. The only survivors were my Takavuna box and a few Turaga and Bohrok Va.
>>10736155Most of them are, but I will admit my Takavuna box is super beat up. Not unusably damaged, mind you, but it's seen better days.
>>10736135Great little setup you've got going on. Envious of all the boxes, especially the Happy Meal one!
>>10736170I'm still hunting for the alt art version of the happy meal box. Pic related. I'm surprised it's being so illusive when I found the first box with ease...
https://files.maskofdestiny.com/story/styleguides-bibles/2001/Bionicle_2000_Story_Bible_-_The_Legends_of_Mata_Nui.pdfCuckbricks got hold of the original design documents for BIonicle, pretty interesting read
>>10736178Well I'll be fucking dammed. I just found it. It's looks a little on the worn side, but I've been hunting for this so long, I'll take it! Now I own both versions of the 2001 Bionicle. Happy Meal box! Lady Luck smiles on me today!
Okay, last build I8'm showing off today. I got the rest of the pieces in the mail, so I was able to finish my B4 era Toa MOC. I went with the red eye version of the model, I think it looks better than the yellow eyed one. I also wanted to get a custom black Vahi made for this MOC, but the gut I contacted to do the job ghosted me, So I guess that's not happening....
>>10735999I wish there were more Bionicle animals pals, it seems like the system could work well for most animals, insects especially.
>>10736259Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the last G2 wave feature animals that could fuse with the Toa to give them super armor?
>>10735670>>10736054Yeah I really fucking hope the GWP wasn't a sign of things to come, I'm not interested in generic system mixelmech shit made of 90% 1x2 curved slopes and a print (or god forbid, a st*cker) for the mask. That shit may fly for a one-off thing but not a full line.
>>10736275It did, and they were pretty great. Biggest complaint is their reuse of their head parts, but they all were unique builds. Not as strong as the rahi sets, but they each had an action feature at least. Plus they were the cheapest sets, can only ask for so much.

>>10735049>mixing angleshit and normal joints>using angleshit at allFucking NASTY.
>>10735465I was hoping they'd make some lime green ccbs joints so we'd have durable replacements for old sets, but they never made them and now ccbs is dead so they'll continue to never make them.
what's his endgame
>>10737652Fool trannies into "collecting" "promotional" "sets" made of garbage that were never even actually released.
>>10737723The klakk is the most embarrassing example of that, it's pure "random weapon pieces and assorted shit mashed together".
>>10737732and they managed to force them into plot relevancy.
>>10735049>Qott: What kind of Bionicle videos do you prefer to watch?Pretty much exclusively music

>>10738066>>10738161Yeah what a cheap asspull
>>10735049Today I made a kappa-like MOC doing a challenge where you have to make a creation out of three large scoops of random pieces (axles and pins you're allowed to pull at any time).My favourite Bionicle videos are the ones from the Golden Age of BioTube like Kylernuva and BioRockDude. Good thing there's still a bunch of channels and new channels going strong. iDS just made a new Onipex and Pals yesterday too.I even made stop motion videos until my dad broke our camera and I'm looking to get back into it someday because I've recently rekindled my love for Bionicle again. A damn shame I joined the fandom after they hit a lull period twice. My most popular YouTube stop motion was a Skull Grinder vs Umarak video where I forgot to put the in-video links to the optional endings.Also question: What happened to the Custom Bionicle Wiki? Is it dead? Looks like it hasn't been updated in years but I'm trying to update my articles and write more stories again. Cheers, friend!
>>10735049Lore vids I guess. Or music videos.
>>10736235What guy did you ask?
Got around to finishing the fan written version of Invasion on Myths and Legacy. It was pretty good. The author managed to capture Greg's writing pretty well, with some kino quotes to go along with it.>“You were born in war!” The mutant snarled. “You were shaped by it as I was, and you deserve the punishment every bit as much as we did. The Pit yawns for you, runners. You belong as prisoners of the Pit.”There were a few things I didn't like, though. The Zyglak and Vezon barely mattered in the Toa Inika's journey through the Cord. And there were way too many jump cuts to focus on side stories that didn't matter to the main plot, like Lesovikk and Karzahni entering the Pit, Barek learning about the Shattering, Krahka's adventures on Voya Nui, and the author's OC villain group the Borakoa. It fell into the same trappings that a lot of fanfic authors fell into, where they try to cram in as many references to canon events and lore that it takes you a bit out of the story. Did we NEED a crash course on the Matoran Civil War? Or Hahli just listing out a bunch of elemental villages that she should not even know about? At the very least, the author Jeff Douglas was able to tie these random lore drops with character development and motives. Like how Jaller posits that the reason they were chosen to revive Mata Nui was because of how this was their second chance to atone for their transgressions during the Matoran Civil War.Good characterisations all around. Jaller and Hahli had a very nice bonding moment, Nuparu was able to do more nerd stuff (even if that led nowhere), and seeing the Mask of Life's guardians just winding down after their job was done was a pretty fun moment. Not my ideal version of the missing Invasion novel, but it's good enough for what it is
I made a Zamor sphere pack for mahri nui matoran (also mahri nui supremacy)
>>10738963that's just isaac clarke dude
>>10738758A guy on Etsy that makes custom Bionicle masks. I contacted him asking if he could make a black Vahi for me. He told me he would do it, and would contact me in a few days when it was done. A few days pass and I didn't get a update. I tried contacting the dude again, but he ignored all the emails I sent him so far.
>>10736054I think it should be a mix of the two. CCBS style joints but replace the middle ball with an axle socket. That way you can connect to older pieces by using only one axle pin and shell pieces would have zero gaps as a result.
>>10739055All I ask for is good quality plastic that doesn't crack
>>10736235Yellow eyes would look better
>>10738963Mahri Nui was so wasted. I was probably my favorite year and was such a neat concept, but we hardly saw any of it
Did anyone else find it weird how McMacku was the only McToran to not have a recolored Toa mask? I guess they couldn't come up with any good complimentary colors for blue, but I still wanted a recolored Kaukau.
>>10739227I think maybe they just ran out of tertiary colours after the other five, since this was before m*tru shades.What's more disappointing is that they didn't recolour one for Hahli even though they gave her dark blue feet.
>>10739227I always assumed it was because they didn't want to make the Kaukau in a solid color and the transparent plastic was too expensive for McD's.
>>10737732Yeah, but at least it actually came out. Some of the good guys and bad guys were literally never produced as official sets.
My new bookshelf came in the mail today. That means I can display more of my Bionicle collection. I need to dig them out of my closet, but I'll do that tomorrow. Building these shelves took a lot out of me. I need a break. Luckily I had some of my stars sets lying around outside my closet, so on the shelf they go!
Made this moc years ago and never took any pictures.
I'm gonna be an old man on my deathbed saying I still think it's fucking stupid how there wasn't a Stars Bohrok.I would have much, much rathered some jank attempt at making a passable Bohrok out of the Av-Toran build over getting a midge version of Gresh or another Skrall.
>>10739690Screw you, I like the mini Gresh!
>>10739541>>10739690Looks cool like a mix between a Bohrok Va and a Boxor set. Got any pictures that are better lit?I was dusting my shelves today and decided to photograph all my current MOCs so I could archive them online. Here’s one of them. I mostly did one frontal photo and then one with the MOC in a pose like so:
>>10739784the asymmetrical shoulder joints bother my autism extensively
>>10739837You mean the angleshit, right? Cuz colour-wise it looks entirely necessary.Sadly I think they never made any m*tru red long double sockets in the regular mould so this is one of those rare circumstances that I must swallow my own disgust with it.
>>10739866yeah, the socket asymmetrythe split colors are cool
>>10739837yeah sorry bout that. I didn't know how divisive the old and new molds were, though I prefer the old ones for their strength.>>10739866Yeah the split red and black halves are intentional. I can't remember why because I made him like 10 years ago.>>10739871Thank you! I think I should change one of the red chest pieces there to a black one and that would make it more evenly split.I also made a bunch of stop motion animations with him in it. This is one of my faves: https://youtu.be/OpCwgNH6pao?si=nesgn_ENndDR07Hp
>>10740041Fucking cringeI don't give a shit if there's anime involved but you faggots always have to make it the gayest maximum fotm shit
>>10740041Not sure what's up with the replies but I think it looks pretty good. Turahk was the only Rakshi I got (was pretty burned out by the sameness of canister sets at this point, though I went right back to getting them all in the Metru era) so he holds a special place.
>>10740043Where else was this posted?
>>10740146Oh come on, the set wasn't THAT bad.
>>10740320nta, but>no play feature (technic or launcher wise)>post-mahri easily broken angular joints>7-8ish pieces per set.The weapons were cool or recycled, but it was definitely a "fizzle-out" for bionicle. Bionicle saves lego, and the one time it struggles they throw it out like a cheap whore.
>>10740333It sucks just how much Lego ignores Bionicle considering its legacy
>>10740369G2 flopped, so Bionicle is worthless in Lego's eyes. At best, we'll get more FOMO GWP Bionicle sets in the future.
>>10740369Ju...Just wait until late 2024-2025, we'll be back then. On a serious note, I built some MOC Toa based on the GWP design but with articulation also at the wrists, balls at the elbow, better torso articulation, ankles, but it's still relatively simple with ~130-160 pieces each. If they were to make Toa sets for around $15 each, I don't think that'd be too unreasonable. Assuming they also introduce at least a new head piece and unique mask piece, that would knock off a few pieces.
>>10740390>I-It's okay if new Bionicle sets are pure curved system slopes and mixel joints as long as there's one (1) new piece!You are why we don't deserve a G3.
no technic no bionicle, simple as
>>10740853I agree, the GWP Tahu set was alright as a one off thing, but I do not want an entire wave to have that kind of build.
>>10740853You're assuming that they won't just make more detailed parts, especially leading up to it. Doesn't seem likely they'd be willing to make all that many new parts for a theme they're not sure will succeed. >>10740891Technic would be great, but they're clearly not going to make as many new parts as they did for G1. Like with G2 it'd be using the basis of what exists now, which is the SCCBS pieces. I would like new mask pieces and the like but if we don't get a G3 that's ok, though I would be interested in a new non Bionicle character creator theme, which maybe wouldn't get these knee jerk reactions.
>>10740895>>10740853Yeah I don't get this whole "tHeY sHoUlD mAkE g3 iN tHiS sTyLe" mentality, it's literally peak r*ddit consoomer. Don't think about silly stuff like new pieces or thematic consistency, just shut up and buy [product] because it has the [franchise] logo on the box.
>>10740910They are are just System Brick drones that want to further snuff out the superior Technic style.
>>10740369>ignoresAnon they literally keep putting references into sets. If they didn't give a shit they'd try to bury it for good. We know a major chunk of the designers at LEGO love Bionicle as well, and likely if given the chance would implement a revival in a heartbeat.
>>10740060People on these threads aren't well adjusted and screech any time they see people having fun with Bionicle in a way that isn't what they want.It's been a while since these threads had shitposters fuck them up so figures they'd start again like this.
>>10741029What you said and he said isn't mutually exclusive. You even say "if given the chance", but the one to give the designers the chance would be Lego the corporation that doles out the money to the designers. That said, I don't think they hate it, otherwise they wouldn't have ok'd the GWP (though I don't think it's any different than say Blacktron, Castle, etc, just nostalgia themes for aging fans), they merely go where the money is and they don't trust that there is any in Bionicle at the moment. Further, it's a bit of an unusual theme, not being that core Lego system, and grouped more in the step child that is Technic, so whenever there are things like the Lego movie, Technic is rarely a part of it in any capacity outside of its functions, which have been integrated into various system sets. Basically Bionicle played a part in Lego's history, and Lego was better for it. They may not talk about it all that often, and it's significance may never really be stressed, but it's still always featured in historical pieces, at least. Bionicle was also one of the 3 themes featured on that hat with patches recently, so that's another bone. I'd like to think that eventually they'll release a Bionicle 3 Virtues coin too.
Did some subbing out of masks. Part 1 --
>>10741470Part 3. Deleted the other 1.
>>10741468But fucking why?
>>10741468>>10741470>>10741478>>10741482This is the kind of shit you'd find on a serial killer's hard drive.
want to make Ga-Koro, but every time I try and make it out of Lego, the bricks look really weird when paired with the Technic pieces of the figures. I'm not sure if I'm just being autistic or these figures just work better in natural looking environments
>>10741468>>10741470>>10741478>>10741482I'd really love to examine your brain
Have been looking for the powered up matorans and found a lot with 5 of them, along with a bonus Nuparu and bohrok and some "rare masks".. yeah.Paid 50 bucks for all of it. Probably my best haul yet.
>>10742070There's a fucking gold Hau. You bet that's rare. I bought a ton of packs and didn't get a single silver or gold Hau.
>>10742070I mean yeah, the only thing you could say isn't that rare is the Bohrok. Everything else is pretty great, especially all at just $50.Still can't believe how expensive this hobby is becoming.
>>10742276agreed. I try to stop myself every month, but a couple things end up trickling through. I'm trying to cut myself off for the holidays.
>>10742121I could be mistaken, but I think the gold/silver masks only came in the 2002 Krana/mask packs, not the original 2001 mask packs.
>>10742293Yes that's right. Toa and Turaga masks in the original mask packs in their colors respective available colors (including the ones that come in the sets), then gold and silver Toa Mata masks in the Krana packs. I tried to get a set of each mask in gold and silver but ended up with mismatched sets, not a single one in both gold and silver, and no Hau at all.
>>10742276>can't believe how expensive this hobby is becoming.Prices for Bionicle have shot through the roof ever since the covid lockdowns, and I don't think the prices are going to drop anytime soon. If there's any sets you want, you better get them now before the prices get too crazy.
E.T? Sure remind me of something else.
>>10742426This has happened with other collector-based hobbies as well. Gamecube games have exploded in price post-covid. I bought a copy of Pokemon Colosseum late 2019 for $35. Every eBay listing for one with a buy it now price has it set at over $100. It's awful and I hate it.
>>10742472I stopped collecting Pokémon stuff due to that bullshit. Fuck scalpers. It's sad seeing even more of them pop up in the Bionicle secondary market.
>>10742472Colosseum is basically the only pokemon game I have left to get in my collection and I'm incredibly butthurt about the fact that I kept putting it off while it was cheap and now it's like 100$
DuckBricks posted more Bionicle development documents a few hours ago. Here's the video for those who are interested.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN5RfE6xchM
>>10742472Just be patient. The retro game collecting boom that started during COVID is starting to trend down, prices have already started dropping on certain consoles.
>>10742507Gotta love how much cooler Bionicle made Lego according to the research. Plus that first year did incredibly. It'd be even more interesting to see subsequent years. We know it was getting higher and higher until a point, so it'd be interesting the peak and fall. Plus the 2015 sales would be interesting, on top of how much in the way of resources they put into it.
>>10742518It's not like there's an infinite amount of Bionicle sets. We're going to run out eventually and the prices will just keep going up until then
>>10742790I said stop.
>>10742790>>10742446>>10741482>>10741478>>10741468....Just do it in studio or IRL Jesus Christ
>>10741929The idea is nice but as you said: bonkles live in natural habitats. Get a wooden board, add the landscape and islands with clay, add resin with blue colorant as water, let it dry, add more clay to form the cliffs and Kaukau, add IRL moss and plastic greenery to make the landscape and village of Ga-Koro.
>>10742426I'm grateful I snagged most of them early on. I need to stop putting off Quake Beast, it's the last one I really want/need.
>>10742282Why Knight shoulders? Why are they all so short? Why G2 weapons? Why no gold Toa tool for bomonga? These things are triggering..
>>10737622Webrick might have some bootleg ones. They have basic CCBS parts but I’m not sure what colors
>>10737622At least this thing is in production, just a matter of time until they come in lime
>>10744008I cannot tell you how excited I am for more recolors of this part. Took Lego long enough to settle on a design that seems sturdy.
>>10743741Probably another troll, might even be chungusfurry again. Just hide his posts and forget about him.
>>10742809Thanks for reminding me how fun it was posting drawings while the cool stud.io.bro built shit.
There's someone selling a complete Carapar (sans box) on FaceBook marketplace for $1. I think this is the start of the price crash we've been hoping for.
>>10744155I think you're jumping the gun a bit early anon. More likely than not it's a mom selling her kid's stuff, or someone who just wants to get rid of their things.
Is it just me or is Stud.io a pain in the ass to use when it comes to finding parts? Or is that just a thing with parts packs?
>>10744161I just downloaded stud.io the other day and I'm overwhelmed by the UI. Unless you can search by part name, which I don't know many part names, I gotta scroll through a lit of hundreds of parts.I think building IRL is easier because you can see all the pieces you have and cane more spontaneous with your ideas, whereas with stud.io, it's better if you know what you need the entire way.
>>10744161>>10744170Here's my process>search Bricklink for a set that I know has the part>find out what retarded autism name they use for it>search that on stud.io
>>10744128You forgot my personal favourite.
>>10741929A system micro-MOC of the bay scaled to a regular Kaukau would be comfy.
>>10744269Thank you, anon.
>>10735049>pic unrelatedWhatever the fuck happened to Edictarts man?
>>10744115I'm right here. I burnt out
>>10744381Your Hordika builds were nice, and I had fun in the process. I don't have the energy to spam drawings these days, but it'll be cool if you ever get back around to posting builds.
>>10744359god i wish they made more pieces in that color. metallic colors are really neat
>>10744161Yes, LDD was better at it somehow. I just start guessing the name from the size and shape or I search for part IDs on bricklink.
>show bionicle to mom>"It looks like a bug!">every timeWhy were they like this?
>>10744651What set did you show her?
>>10744654no, it's any of the ones I built. Doesn't matter how many different ones. Doesn't matter if it's a guy with a sword and shield, or a vehicle with wheels, or a tall dude using the piraka spines, doesn't matter. They're all BUGS.
>>10744661You know? Looking at my Bionicle sets now. I kinda get where your mom is coming from. A lot of the armor on these guys do invoke the look of a insect's exoskeleton.
>>10744565Uh... anon? They didn't make *any* pieces in that colour.
>>10744670yes they did
>>10744697Looked at the Bionicle section of the store. Not much to see yet. If enough sellers open up shop there, it might be a good place to buy. We just have to wait and see.
>infected Hau starts at ~$12 on bricklink>plain black Hau starts at ~$16I get that the infected one comes in a set (which includes 2) and the black one was only available from mask packs, but shouldn't the only painted mask piece be worth more than one that you can make by leaving the former in a jar of solvent for a couple nights?Granted, most people probably wouldn't destroy an infected Hau to save $4, I know which one I'd rather have more of when I already have at least one of each.
>>10744724The painted aspect is really unique, but also inconsistent with every other mask out there, so some may not care for it.

>>10744741You're the one who built the Hordika revamps I posted, right?
>>10744697Not bad, but I don't really see why people would switch over to it if they're already on Bricklink
>>10745101I think he said the ease of searching, plus UI. For a more casual person buying parts on Bricklink probably is daunting, but the sets are nearly organized. Though at the end of the day the best deal reigns supreme, if sellers can make more money through lower fees, and buyers can find better deals, then it'd be a viable alternative. And not like either is exclusive, people should shop around.
>>10744359I only know Edictarts from YouTube and their channel has been inactive forever, so they probs just moved on
>>10744724I have a really scuffed up coof Hau, maybe I should just strip the paint off it and use the profits to buy a new one in better condition?
>>10744864Then I wasn't talking about you. You were not the cool stud.io.bro.
>>10744774>>10744799you're both fucking with me
>>10745503nta, but this is like a mustard-gold
>>10745503Those parts are spraypainted, dude. Look at the mask. The whole fucken guy's gold ensemble doesn't exist as official an color, it came from a can.
>>10745503This is what I see, clockwise from top right that MOC, ID70 metallic green, chrome green, and drum lacquered gold
>>10745503>>10745835Yeah you can literally see unpainted areas on even the small technic pieces.Pure gore.
>>10745503Oh my Lord, you really are colorblind.
>>10735049G3 should lean even heavier into technic and should blatantly target 16+ to adult collectors. Forego the idea of canister sets. Maybe do a few smaller boxes but primarily keep it to big pricy technic sets that cost around 50-70e a piece. Make the atmosphere even more ominous and dark than before and do something completely new with the story. Maybe go so far back or forwards in time that the mata nui robot bullshit has zero relevance to anything
>>10744124>Shoulder too low for metru torso, meaning long arms>rubber band:(
>>10746952OK, the photo doesn’t make that clear. Still, for a metru build, the arms will be really long. Just do what 166eric did.
>>10746921I'd give Lego so much of my money if they gave us huge sets of the first 6 toa and a game.Modern versions of the McToran and Turaga would be nice, but I can do without.
>>10746921>Forego the idea of canister sets.Silence. Canisters are the perfect storage method for Bionicle. I hated how all the G2 sets were in flimsy cardboard boxes that are so fragile, you can damage them by just looking at it funny. While my 2001 canisters are still in amazing condition thanks to their durable design.
>>10747360Lego is never doing plastic packaging ever again sadly. They're even phasing out their plastic pic a brick wall cups you get at the lego store in favor of cardboard ones.
>>10747360>>10747445Metal canisters it is
>>10747360You might be literally retarded, canister sets obviously refers to cheap sets that come in waves of 6 aka the fucking canister sets that were exactly like that whereas titans and smaller sets always came in cardboard
>>10747518You're the retarded one. I'm talking about the quality of the packaging. The plastic canisters are a lot more durable than the cardboard boxes.
>>10747521So yes, you are. Nobody gives a shit about the quality of your autist box nor was anyone else talking about it
>>10743365Oh shut the fuck up
>>10747558Shut up, bitch. I talk about what I want, when I want. Don't like? Keep seething.
>>10747540mmm sexy, I think I just scored
>>10746959That better not be the cringe forumtroon faggotry with the illegal ball and socket crudely slapped on the inside of the arm.
Was it really impossible for human looking figures to look good?
>>10747540I'm kinda surprised that isn't much 'fanart' of Gali like that, she's one of a few female characters so it should be open season for most people.Yeah I know it's a Bionicle but that wouldn't stop most people I know.
>>10748353It's funny, since her mask is literally a cow too
>>10748417It is?Like, it's meant to be a cow face?
>>10748434Yes. Hence the Kaukau name
>>10748442Hmmm.That gives me an idea, I don't think anybody here is gonna wanna hear it though.
>>10748467I don't think you know where you are
>>10748467If this is the Studio spammer, no, nobody wants to see what you have to make.
>>10748467Ignore the other anon, I wanna see
>>10748136Yeah they already proved it with Galidor, I don't know why they felt the need to try it again.
>>10748650Yeah, that was plain weird.
>>10748650>>10748136There's no reason they couldn't add extra sculpted detail to the heads to make them look decent. Sigma Six from Gi Joe managed to translate a heavily stylized look into plast just fine, and I feel like had Lego tried for something similar it would've worked better. The face that none of the CCBS heads had actual eyes sculpted on and just had prints on top of flat surfaces just looked horrible. Even Galidor managed with scuplted eyes. The CCBS figures were such a bungle.
"There might be a set coming out with a uh... well, we'll see, but stay tuned for reviews coming out in the future because there's more excitement to come." (something like this) - duckbricks while he was talking about the Tahu GWP on a stream, specifically about the printed mask. Maybe he saw something interesting in Denmark to do with mask-like pieces?
Look what I got my hands on today! Complete with box and everything!
>>10740333Trips of half-truthThe Av-Matoran build sucks kikanalo dicks but the Stars were probably the best iteration of it
>>107491052025 bros, we're still in the game
>>10749105Bionicle GWP #2 electric boogaloo?
>>10749352Let's say we are getting another GWP, if there was such a thing what would you think is the way to go? Sounds like it'd be another character build if the face print was the point of focus. Who aside from Tahu would be iconic enough to warrant another focused set? I'd think probably only Takanuva. I like the Tahu set but it feels standalone. If they suddenly do another Toa it'd feel like they need to do them all. Plus, as much as I like it, the design could be improved, but as a GWP it feels like they'd have to stick with the current formula.
>>10749443I think if they went with another GWP, they ought to return to the Takanuva idea like you'd said. The model they showed was clearly well received, and I think it would be even more popular despite the increased price threshold.
>>10749533As someone that built something similar irl, as long as they rethink those knees. Really bad design. Bad range of movement and easily breaks apart. If they did that though, suddenly you have GWP Tahu and Takua and a completely distinct and different Takanuva, so basically a second standalone piece. I've made my own GWP-inspired Toa, so I wouldn't mind something so distinct from the first, but I'd wonder if some wouldn't prefer having a more coherent and unified look. That said, they're surely not going to tackle every Toa in GWP format, so they'd probably be better off not doing this.
>>10749443Don't care. I want Kopaka and Matoro.
>>10749443>Who aside from Tahu would be iconic enough to warrant another focused set?BOHROK
>>10749334I remember this video but I forget what it was called. Can anyone link me up because it was the funniest shit
>>10749826Bohrok,maybe Makuta, maybe Vakama? Or better yet why not a giant Mata Nui robot?
>>10750028>Or better yet why not a giant Mata Nui robot?>Mata Nui GWP>thousands of pieces>min threshold $1500>Lego Dots, Friends, Classic only
>>10750060Or like a small scale one? Maybe a buildable Mask of Life. Man I'm just throwing ideas out here. Also I still would consume 1500 dollars worth of Friends sets for a Great Spirit robot because friends has some sick sets.
>>10750080Ya, just kidding around, and that last line was about the restrictions that Tahu GWP had when he first came out with the $100 threshold. If there was a buildable mask I'd assume the Hau, which look, I love Tahu so I'd be happy with it, but I'm sure some others that have other favorites would probably be annoyed about. Small Makuta could be interesting. Some have posted some very decent looking GWP Makuta.
Felt like building this goober today, and yeah he's just about as flimsy as I remember him being considering all the weight they expect these single ball joints to hold. Still think it was pretty cool back in the day to have a humanoid combiner this big.
>>10750095Also his ass is on backwards but I didn't feel like fixing it.
So was this thing an actual proposed GWP set or is it just some fan moc?
>>10750095I built this when I was a kid with the three titan sets from that year (minus the special mask) and man, was he TALL.>>10750088As far as iconic characters go for a new Bonkle gwp set, Takanuva seems most likely. A movie inspired Makuta would be amazing though.
>>10750120After the original GWP was revealed, there were some designer interviews that showed prototypes at different price levels. The original concepts were a set of minimalist Toa Mata, a variant of the set we got, and that Takanuva. Big reason that one didn't get made was because it would have been something akin to a $200 threshold.>>10750095Weird fucking dude but he's still great. I should get his mask sometime.All of the titan combiners are various levels of jank, but I think each is still pretty grand. Just a shame they gave up on that in 2007, 2008, and 2009. I'd have loved to see some combiners with the battle vehicles.
>>10750147Ah I see. What I don't understand is why Tahu and Takua GWP was limited to certain eligible sets instead of just buying whatever from the lego store like any other GWP.
>>10750158They never said, I don't think. I guess they just figured they could get people who really wanted it to buy some specific sets. When it came back with Blacktron with the $200 or so threshold, I think you could get any sets at that point, so not a consistent restriction, it seems .
>>10749443The GWP feels standalone because it is a standalone display piece, no surprise there. If they were to do a proper nostalgia big display set using a similar or altered brickbuilt style I would rather see one toa display for each major year, there's a lot of options and scenarios they could go for. As long as they don't do the stupid thing of making yet another Tahu mata I wouldn't worry about the collectibility of the existing GWP. And if the focus is openly inaction figures then it goes on the adults shelf of understandably fragile for looks sets like flowers or basedwars.If the designs are good enough then diehard collectors will be able to piece their own rest of the team provided the recolors and masks exist. A better (more exploiting) solution thinking only of collectors (checklist dumbasses) would be a 10 in 1 creator set with every year, a normal person can make the ones he wants the most and an abnormal person buys ten boxes.I am simply tired of Tahu and his Hau as the poster boy for a decade of toys and lore, admittedly in part because I didn't have a Tahu growing up and he is not an important part of my experience but I know am not alone in this.
>>10750178Tahu was my favorite growing up and my first purchase, so I love the Tahu love, but I understand how you feel cause rarely is my favorite character the leader/main character. The Hau is undoubtedly the most iconic mask of Bionicle though, so it's understandable that if a mask were to get representation it makes sense that it'd be it. I don't think we need more GWP, honestly, though I appreciate the Bionicle representation. If we get more I'd like to see something new, like an actual new element, but that just doesn't tend to happen in something like a GWP. Maybe it'll be something like new CMF with little mask helmets. They could then be reused as costumes in a Ninjago City set or something like that.
>>10750158>>10750162Nope, they never explained that one. Best speculation everyone had was that since it was a Lego internal theme, they'd limit it to Lego internal themes. Obviously it was a dumb idea since most Bionicle fans didn't give a shit about younger kids sets, but who knows.May have been a ploy to plan the seed in kids' minds and get them curious about it, too. I was just happy to get into Monkie Kid as a result.
>>10750261>Best speculation everyone had was that since it was a Lego internal theme, they'd limit it to Lego internal themes.So is Majisto, City sets, and countless other GWP though.
>>10750263Wait was Majisto limited? Or are you saying Majisto was an internal theme?Either way that's why there's been so much speculation, because only the Bionicle GWP received that treatment, which is why it's so unusual. Like the other anon said, Blacktron didn't have the restriction either. And before anyone tries it's not out of spite, Lego wouldn't kneecap themselves when they're trying to sell their own products.
>>10750280Saying that all those are internal themes and rarely limited. I don't think it's so much kneecapping, more that they trusted that Bionicle fans are desperate enough to buy whatever they're offering. With no sales data who knows how well it did, but that they brought it back and limited to the Blacktron threshold (rather than staggered, like the recent Majisto and Winter City type set that had different thresholds) I'd have to think that it at least did fairly well.
>>10750322I find this more funny than sexy, but you still did a good job.
>>10750345There needs to be more.
>>10750286Okay gotcha, I just wanted to be sure I was on the same page. I think you might be right though, or at least that they wanted to test to see how desperate Bionicle fans might be for new products after G2 was iffy.>>10750322...well fuck
>>10750322YES!FINALLY!I AM NOT ALONE IN THESE THREADS!!!The drawing is very lovely btw, much better than anything I had planned to draw for this weekend. The lineart, the shading and the colours are all great here. The pose is excellent as well.
>>10750322Can you do one for Hali next
>>10749443>Who aside from Tahu would be iconic enough to warrant another focused set? ILiterally all the OG 6?
>>10750799All 6 as a GWP though? I think that was the point of the post. If we got even a single set, ya, lots of options, but with a limited piece and budget standalone GWP there's only so much that can be done.
>>10750215>I don't think we need more GWPWell yes, I'm painting an actual standalone release, not more crumbs. Wishing for more underdeveloped "free with your thousand dollar purchase" tat is to desire more abuse
>>10750755Matoran or toa?
>>10750802Mmm, fair. I think it could be done within a reasonable budget, but not if they wanted to stay in scale with GWP Tahu/Takua.
>>10735049Just a reminder that the Toa Head Statue is still in review. I can't recall an Ideas set being in review for this long. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/4daf2cfe-314a-4fb2-8cf0-5900gnv2p0f97ebff4
>>10751192Would be neat if it gets made but not counting on it. I'd get it though, I find the head very iconic. Even better if it came with an eye piece and also a mask (it'd be a Hau, of course).
>>10751250The hell? The URL seems correct. If you look up Lego Ideas Toa Head on google it's the first result, and the page is still fine. Not sure why the link is bunk.
>>10751254Did you by chance accidentally your captcha into the text box, anon?
>>10751274See, was checking the last few letters in the URL, thinking I cut one off, but I think that's what happened.
>>10751192The worst thing that could happen to bionicle was if this dogshit got out on the market and everyone raced to buy it en masse. Thank god people had the sense to kill G2 in its crib for being retarded chima shit
>>10751292What about be bad about this set? And for that matter, the hell do you mean by G2 being "chima shit?"
>>10751301Resident retard, just report and ignore.
>>10751301>What about be bad about this set?On it's own? Ultimately nothing. In a situation where Bionicle effectively doesn't exist and Lego shits out this thing? Literally the only message you'll be sending anyone by buying it is that you want more shit like this. But "this" literally isn't Bionicle. It's a fucking lego set>the hell do you mean by G2 being "chima shit?"Look at them. There is literally nothing about G2 that separates it from shit like hero fagtory and chima outside of the absolute most superficial features. Literal autists who will buy anything with a Bionicle sticker on it (while ironically enough not even giving a shit about what Bionicle actually is) love it though, but if you actually liked Bionicle to begin with it doesn't take a genius to see that it shares nothing in common with actual Bionicle. Bionicle is technic. Bionicle is not shitty recycled skeletons with smooth dogshit shell plating with fucking stickers on them to cover up said skeletons. G2 is like everything that was wrong with the Inika build amplified by a 100
>>10751316Okay, I can see your first point. I don't think Lego is dumb enough to think that they could fully replace Bionicle in a System format, the designers know the core of the build that attracted people in the first place. Even if they implemented more system in a future reboot, they'd never let it become the core.>G2I can understand your point, but I'll just have to agree to disagree. I'm not a huge fan of the CCBS build, or at least what it ended up becoming. That being said, G2 was probably the peak of that system with the level of Technic integration they were pulling off in the builds, especially with the Uniters, Creatures, and Beasts. No it wasn't perfect, but it was a good showing of some creativity with the system and giving some unique builds while they did it. Honestly, comparing G2 builds at any point to the Inika build is giving way too little credit to them.
>>10751192I hate this ugly fucking thing like you wouldn't believe
>>10751192Only acceptable if they bring back old grey for this>>10751214>she>>10751433Any technic integration in G2 was meaningless since everything was covered by the stupid shells. G1 really drives in the mechanical detail and texture of every piece
Bionicle comes back next year as a City subtheme.Lego City Bionicle.
>>10751433What he>>10751529 also said. It's practically irrelevant how complex the G2 builds actually are, or whether or not they incorporate gear mechanisms or whatever bullshit they did, when the entire line desperately tries to mask and obscure all of it so they just look the exact same as every other CCBS action figureThe point of "technic" is that things are and look "technical". Being blatantly technic defined the golden era of Bionicle. Look at the fucking Rahi, most of them make you think of tanks or some shit because their organic aspects are very secondary and your imagination does a lot of the work for that aspect
>>10751529>>10751556Okay I think I'm on the same page now. We were coming at this from different angles but I think we can all agree that the Technic aesthetic was peak. Like yes, I did like the Technic integration in G2 (I'd argue it's not as egregious as you guys say but I also get your point). But at the same time, the peak was the first 4 years of Bionicle where things were gappy messes full of abstract designs made from Technic parts.The unfortunate thing is, I guarantee most people don't agree with that. And that's not a Lego thing or whatever, but a mass market thing. I could be wrong, but I always felt like people dislike abstract designs that are left to some imagination. Hence why the Rahi didn't last, or why earlier Technic subthemes are seen as red-headed stepchildren to the theme as a whole. Now I'd say those people are dead fucking wrong, but unfortunately we're in the minority.Maybe one day we'll get someone who's batshit crazy like us and wants some creativity in designs once again.
>>10751316>but if you actually liked Bionicle to begin with it doesn't take a genius to see that it shares nothing in common with actual BionicleGatekeeping bullshit. People can like whatever they like for whatever reason they like.
>>10751618"gatekeeping" is the natural state of things and whenever you stop doing it you get fanbases infested with retarded secondaries trying to take over the actual fanbase
Anyone know any interesting Bionicle podcasts? Could use some chill audio discussion of the franchise to have on the background
>>10751316>But "this" literally isn't Bionicle. It's a fucking lego setBoo fucking hoo. Lego is never going to bring Bionicle back as it was in G1 with a mountain of specialized parts, or Technix heavy builds. At best we'd see the Mixel joints or those prebent Ninjago mech limbs used for a modernized reboot integrating System, and that's being generous in the hypothetical that they even would bring it back outside of select collector directed one-offs. It would literally never return aside from that venue. Even if they sold a million of that Ideas set it wouldn't ruin a potential Technic line, because there is no potential Technic line. Sour fucking grapes, all around. The set looks fine. >but muh syyyysteem not real bonklllleesPic related. I just don't understand you fags saying such retard shit like>buying this set shows Lego we will be satisfied with slop, so they will give us more slop! I hate it and don't want it for this reason! Like, either we get nothing, or we get occasional System sets. They will never produce what you want, and you know it, so bitching about a potential System set leading to more System sets is asinine. Again, it's that or nothing. Nobody gives a fuck how hard it makes you seethe otherwise. The set looks fine, you're just a fucking schizo.
>>10751687>The set looks fine.>The set looks fine, It's a fucking grey slab on a stick you retard, just go build one yourself out of a stawas set if you think it looks so fine.
>>10751703Sorry you struggle to recognize the Bionicle piece it's shaped as. Let me help you, it's a Toa head. They used it in a lot of sets in the first three years of G1's run. Tell me anon, what mask is this set trying to replicate? Can you tell? Do you need me to help you with this one too?
I liked G2. It was nice to see Bionicle back again after 5 long years. There were some things about it that were undeniably worse than G1 sets, but also other things that were just as good or better. The Uniters in particular have their faults, but I like the more Technic-heavy leaning they had compared to the Masters. The more Bionicle-specific armor pieces were cool too. It just isn't Bionicle without a bunch of useless-looking pistons. It's sad that it got shitcanned before they were able to go even further with it.My opinion is the only correct one.
Fuck Bionicle give me Slizers
>>10751821>Fuck BionicleGet in line.
>>10751714I hate the reused sword pieces so much goddamn.
>>10751714I don't think there's a single thing on this image that I like
>>10751687>Boo fucking hoo.didnt read further than that, go back and kill yourself tranny
>>10751854What? You dont like Chima: Beyblade? But it LITERALLY has an EPIC gear mechanism trademark symbol hidden behind that chima plate...you are...the.......secondary....just slop it up like a good fan....boo hoo.....
>>10751876>abloobloobloo! abloobloobloo!Stay unhappy, Chud. Enjoying the future of Bionicle while drinking your tears!
I like when people with gay and retarded opinions samefag. It really improves the quality of the thread.
>>10751885You are a retarded secondary zoomer and you have never seen an actual 2001 bionicle on a real physical store shelf
>>107517142016 is a top three year for me and I've been around since day one 2001.
>>10751876>didnt readWith how shit your takes are, I'm not surprised, you fucking troglodyte.
>>10751899You havent been on this site for long enough to even understand what "samefag" means. Protip: its not making multiple posts in a thread, its pretending to be multiple people while responding to one. Now fuck off to your homesite and take your faggot zoomer tranny friends with you. Maybe you can all mass suicide or something
>>10751902Unfortunately that's the latest boogeyman and they've really been into it for at least a year now, maybe longer.
Tired of the bullshit. What sets are you still trying to get for your collection/Bionicle builds, whether they're Bionicle or not?Personally speaking:>Quake Beast>Kopeke>Hafu>Tuma>The Mission>Robots Revenge>TorchAnd maybe a few more Hockey dudes
>>10751821for me it's roboriders
>>10752090I'm just making shit in Studio and slowly accumulating the parts on bricklink. I have like 50 builds, ranging from Rahi, Toa, and Turaga, and I just have no spending money atm because of the holidays.
>>10751893Same. Sure the fluff was wank but the fluff for old Bionicle fell off hard after a certain point too, I was already running on headcanon for over a decade and the G2 toys were rock fucking solid, I loved how all the Masters had different body types. Linebacker Kopaka was shit I never knew I needed, and being able to apply a stud to Uniter's mask to color the lens easily makes it a top tier mask.
>>10751714The uniter sets were so damn good...
what has happened in the last two or so years to cause every set to practically double in price?
>>10752090I'm happy with all the sets I got when I was younger. I missed some here and there, but I'm content without them, so all good with the collection. I also bought the parts to make my Toa Mata in brick form so I'm done for now. I was thinking of making some other characters in brick form but I haven't gotten to it. I'd kind of like to make Lariska because teal is a cool color that you don't see all that often, plus maybe Voriki needs to get made at some point.
>>10752265Damn so I’m not just imagining it.
>>10752296Nope, it just keeps getting worse. Admittedly I've bought incomplete sets, fixed them up, and flipped them to fund the hobby, but there's a fucking line when it comes to selling these.The prices people are charging are highway robbery, fuck that.
>>10751609Competition is an honourary Bionicle Ancestor like Slizers and Roboriders tbdesuPlus all the teal and purple (real purple, not shitheel zoomer purple) is sexo
>>10751687>Like, either we get nothing, or we get occasional System sets.Then I vote nothing. Fuck system sculptures, fuck mixelmech horseshit, and especially fuck weak consoomer redditor cucks like you who gladly suckle the shit directly from nuLego's prolapsed and infected anus to make sure that they know how desperate you are and that everyone else knows that you literally have the mentality of a spousal abuse victim.Also>literally posts playset that has a giant specialized Bionicle piece, multiple regular Bionicle pieces, and an entire Visorak model with a special recolourYeah this is totally the same as that Ideas thing, right. Disingenuous fucking nigger.
>>10752419>and especially fuck weak consoomer redditor cucks like you who gladly suckle the shit directly from nuLego's prolapsed and infected anus to make sure that they know how desperate you are and that everyone else knows that you literally have the mentality of a spousal abuse victim.This. There's nothing I hate more than these fucking spineless consumerist basedboys who exist to slop and who slop to exist
>>10752419The Ideas set actually looks better, because it just looks like a giant stone sculpture like the Kini Nui. My opinion is the right one.>consoomerI haven't bought any new sets in like six years. Can you say the same? >I vote nothingYou don't get to "vote", you muttoid. Unlike you I'm in the acceptance stage of NuLego where I know they're fucking garbage, relying almost exclusively on liscenseshit and nostalgiawank, and they have no faith in constraction or in house IPs. You're losing it projecting me as a tranny in one breath and a soiboi the next flinging shit everywhere because the mere prospect of System makes you fucking seethe. You can't show Lego you're not fucking "weak" if they put nothing out, you fucking schizo. I've been buying nothing but secondhand G1 and old 90s System off of Bricklink in the last few years, and I'm sure since Lego owns the site now they have analytical data showing exactly what is being sold through the site, and all I've been showing them is that I don't give a shit for their new swill. Have you? Regardless the Ideas set looks nice and you're a fucking sped if that is considered bad in your eyes because it uses System. I like old System and Bionicle. This is what makes me better than you. Faggot.
>>10752666>This is what makes me better than you. Faggot.not him but if you own a single G2 set, no you arent
The toys I played with as a kid are better than the toys I've never owned as an adult.What a fair, non-biased argument.
>>10752985Uniter Tahu is better in every way, shape and form than Mistika Tahu.Disagree with the truth all you want.
>>10753046>constipated shit is better than diarrheaOkay? Youre still a retarded tasteless 12 year old if you actually like either one. Do you fucking think when people bring up G1 theyre referring to the fucking Mistika?
>>10752985Yes I am, and I bought every G2 set plus doubles.>>10753069G2 is superior to anything post 07 sans vehicles.
>>10753075Nobody gives a fuck about your generic hero fagtory tranny shit. Fuck off back to your homesite
>>10753083Why would I be? I got to see the toa mata on real store shelves as a kid. You on the other hand are a labgrown hapa abomination and its why you jazzhands basedjak your tiny dick off for G2 because it was your epic poser bionicle moment when you finally bought one from a store. You should just accept the fact that your entire identity is built on a lie
>>10753088>All this schizo projectionGot Tahu and Matau for Xmas and my brother got Vakama and Gali. Was on board from year one. Not that you would understand, because you're in the midst of a mental breakdown over some System bricks. Loved the playsets as a kid, especially the 06 ones, and yes, I'm still better than you. Here, have some more bricks to get triggered over.
>>10753111What is this obsession with "being better"? Where does this stem from, freak? What the fuck do you even mean retarded autist?
>>10753112>What is this obsession with "being better"? Where does this stem from, freak?Aren't you the retard itt saying G1 is better than G2 and System? For someone who doesn't know what being better means, you sure shout it a lot. Have some more bricks to seethe over retard.
>>10752666TL;DR lmao Maybe if you keep rageposting here and soifacing over GWPs and hecking epic Bionicle references in printed tiles in unrelated sets Lego will give you more product with the Bionicle label pasted on it to consoooom.
>>10753135Ayyy, we summoned Chungusfurry. How ya been, faggot?
>>10753131>I AM BETTER I AM BETTER NOO IIIII AM THE BEST IM NOT A FAKE FAN shut the fuck up demented pile of shit goyim
>>10753139>summonedhe's been here the whole time, he's just switching between characters so he doesn't get reported immediately
>>10753140>>I AM BETTER I AM BETTER NOO IIIII AM THE BEST IM NOT A FAKE FAN>>10751316 >but if you actually liked Bionicle to begin with it doesn't take a genius to see that it shares nothing in common with actual Bionicle.I'm sorry? Who was reeeeing about being a real fan? All I said was that I was better than you, you fucking ESL chimp.
>>10753046No toa of fire would be able to withstand the heat of this take
>>10753151What planet are you on? The Mistika are shit on 1000% more than the Uniters. That's a pretty common opinion.
>>10753149>I'm sorry? Who was reeeeing about being a real fan?real fans who dont want to get confused with redditors who slop up everything with the heckin epic based pogmoment bonkle dream trademark sticker on it? fuck off
>10753160And the mask has slipped off. Not replying to this shit anymore. Knew I was talking to a schizo, just didn't know it was the boards' most notable schizo.
>>10751192there's a record amount of them in the batch, of course it takes longer.
>>10753172I'd assume the mask youre referring to is "redditor cant stop desperately trying to profile everyone around him while they gang up to shit on him, convinced that its totally just one person"
>>10753156I find the overuse of a gold in Taju uniter to be on the same level of shit design as Tahu mistika, and the body layout for all uniters to be on the same level of reused as the piraka body type. Mistika's mistake was naming the characters after the toa mata, nobody would care if they were some other goons or a new team. Uniters are a downgrade from the masters from story to toy design
>>10753177Either you are chungusfurry, or you aren't familiar with his posting style, at which point, lurk more, faggot.
>>10753193>you must profile everyone around you, fellow redditor, or you are LE NEWI can guarantee you that ive been on this website for over 10 years longer than you have, and I still frankly dont give a single shit about whatever muh i refuse to take showers tier "issue" youre having. go back
>>10753181Okay, fine opinion. But a "hot take" would he a largely controversial one. I think the general consensus would still put Uniter Tahu above Mistika. Not that I neccesarily agree, just saying it's not a hot take.
>10753194>You aren't true anonymoose, you are ReDdIt>I am the real oldfag!Off topic faggots aside, what was your favorite G2 mask? I loved the Skull Spider masks.
transition the hell out of this thread, both of you.
>>10753181I wouldn't call them a downgrade, there were some elements that were undoubtedly worse, but I'd say on the whole there was more of an effort to divorce it from the more generic Hero Factory CCBS style. That armour plate piece was great because it's compatible with the older double sockets and just technic in general. And I'd say the Masters had the same problem with half the wave being ninjago goldblarf. I also personally like the use of the Nuva symbol, but I don't consider that to be something that fairly counts in an analysis of the two.
>>10753212Skull Scorpio variant of Pohatu's mask and it's not even close.
>>10753212Kulta and Umarak the Hunter, both had great masks. Kulta's for the Terminator-esque look, and Umarak for the asymmetry and wooden appearance. Really unique as far as Bionicle masks go.>>10753309The blended masks were a thing of beauty in G2. Loved that they embraced them.
>>10753309Tbdesu I don't care for the G2 Kakama because it feels like instead of emulating the actual look of the original they fixated on a single characteristic, exaggerated it, and built it around that.>BIG FAT FUCKING CHEEKSMost of the G2 Toa masks have this problem imo, just worse on the Kakama since the original was so fucking top-tier.
>>10753392I can kinda see where you're coming from. I'll at least give the Hau, Pakari, and Akaku credit for being nearly the same as their G1 counterparts, just given a little makeover.
Well anons, I'm in a really good mood. I snagged a fully boxed Bionicle Master Builder Set. Pic related. Been hunting a fully boxed copy for a decent price for awhile, so I'm happy my search is finally over. Going to build that kangaroo rahi first when this comes in the mail.
>>10753392>>10753396The Kaukau was pretty solid in spite of not looking like its prior iterations, though. Probably cuz it was more of a movie Kaukau Nuva instead, and the actual physical Cowcow Nuva looked ass.
>>10753570>red Slizer jumpsuit halves>proper dark gray Mata footI forget sometimes that this set actually has some really good rare recolours.
>>10753585Yeah, those red Slizer parts will be amazing for my MOC builds.
>>10735064Hey buddy, I think you've got the wrong door, the Lego bricks club's two blocks down
>>10753570I want the red throwbot torso so bad but it's 38 Canadian fot one half so lol
>>10752114> A roborider made with slizer, bionicle and a little bit of modern systemI kneel
>>10739493>didn't want to make the Kaukau in a solid colorSounds plausible>the transparent plastic was too expensiveIsn't this just a myth?
>>10754780It also has a knights kingdom sword, although the blue version is from exo force. Here's an aquanaut slizer. The swords fit into that pre-bionicle and mata aesthetic pretty well.
I finally realized that I don't actually even need G3. I kept thinking about what I would want it to be (and always cycling back to being 100% sure that Lego would never ever do anything that would satisfy the adult me, and it would just be more kiddyfied ninjago shit like G2 if not even worse with some type of system constraction bullshit). I just went insane and started browsing other actually adult oriented robot/mech toys and spent 250e with the snap of my fingers. I have no clue why did it take so long for me to realize that it's an option
>>10756279I just like following Lego for any new Constraction-analogous parts, along with any themes that strike my interest. I've otherwise been doing similar and branching into model kits. Bought a variety of them a few months ago that I'm sitting on, but I love having this mix of buildable robot hobbies.
Another combiner model finished! I really love the Bohrok-Kal Kaita. The punching arms combo really well with the lunging head.
Dang, fast board today eh?
>>10757689We're at bump limit buddy>>10756639Never built the Kal combiners, they always looked goofier than the original Bohrok combiners. I do like the top-heaviness of this one though.
>>10757715Oh yeah, I guess I'll post my stuff next thread.
>>10756279I obviously have no care for a G3 because Lego will NEVER bring back Bionicle, they may one day release something with Bionicle branding, but it wont build like bionicle, it wont have bionicle-like story and characters, it wont have any sort of MNOG equivalent, it just wouldn't actually be Bionicle, and so I have no reason to care about it. Learned this the hard way after buying a bunch of G2 crap and then realizing I had no actual reason to like any of it, and only bought it because of branding.
>>10755213I love seeing multiple themes combined like this Since slizer legs can fit on a clip you can even have the guy haning onto him.
>>10752090I put together a gigantic autistic spreadsheet of every combiner/alt model alongside the individual sets that comprise it. Some day I'll complete it.
>>10752090Unironically I would really like to get my hands on Mata Nui from the latter years, I skipped out on everything after the Mahri and I kind of regret it.That, and maybe a Lewa to go with my Lewa Nuva.
>>10758756Mahri is the swansong of the series. Theyre the only half decent implementation of the inika build. Everything that came after them is utter shit, and I own almost all of the glatorian from both lines
>When Matoro finally came to a stop, he was lying at the feet of a figure in pitch-black armor. He was armed with wicked blades and a multi-shot blaster, and he regarded Matoro as if the Toa were something he had just stepped in.>“Welcome to the Pit, runner,” the figure said. “My name is Hydraxon. You have the right to remain jailed.”The books keep describing Hydraxon as having black armour. I wonder if that was based on some early concept sketch like Nuparu's Aqua Blaster Blade.
>“All right,” Jaller said to the others. “We don’t have time for this. Hewkii, you and I will take out the launchers, and the rest of you —”>“I know an easier way,” Hahli cut in. “Kongu, use your power — make the air inside that bubble shove him out of it.”>“What good will that do?” asked Kongu. “He has a personal air bubble around him, so he can breathe in the water. He’ll just swim back into the city.”>Hahli smiled. “Oh, no, he won’t. Do it.”>Kongu summoned his elemental control of air, creating a hurricane force wind inside the air bubble directed just at Defilak. Before the Le-Matoran could grab on to anything, he had been flung out of the protective bubble and into the ocean. Hahli shot forward and began swimming in a circle around the Matoran, faster and faster, until the force of the whirlpool had stripped his air bubble away. All Defilak had left was the air in his lungs, and even that would not last long in the vacuum Hahli was creating.>Then the world abruptly stopped spinning. A strong arm grabbed him and hurled him back inside the city’s protective bubble. It belonged to Hahli, who now hovered in front of the launchers as if daring the villagers to shoot. “You see? If I wanted you dead, you would be dead. I don’t. Neither do my friends. We’d like to help, if you would just stop shooting at us long enough to let us do it.”>“Why should I faith-trust you?” said Defilak. “Nothing in the Pit can be trusted.”>“I am not of the Pit,” said Hahli. “I am of the sea — it belongs to me, not to the Barraki or their servants. And through me, the sea belongs to you, too.”Not really a fan of how psychopathic Hahli just turned into all of a sudden. It's like her ego went up five notches as soon as she got to the Pit
>>10756639It looks like a crab with tiny legsI Iove it
>>10756408Aliexpress has officially licensed notlego contraction ultraman no one but me seems to care about
new marketing pitch: classic bionicles turned into collectibles with enhanced articulation and an old school mcfarlane-esque grimy weathered aesthetic (something in the vain of the original infected Hau mask)
>>10759287that literally sounds like the coolest possible thing that they could realistically do. basically pic related except with more rusty and moldy ass colors/weathering
>>10759337And good looking
>>10735049Are there any bonkle and Knights' Kingdom part packs for Studio?
What does /biog/ think of the new Cryoshellhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UG-xwKBI4H0
>>10760124It's a nice song. Would have been perfect for a new Bionicle commercial.
>>10760155https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2I5DR89qXdgit was effectively used as one
>>10760160I seen that trailer. Hope development of MOP is going well. I played the shit out of the legacy version. I hope they keep the Toa customization.It's a sin to have a Lego game without it.
