Really nice shaping in the torso with those triangle axle pieces. A good number of connection points, excellent unorthodox angles, and to top it all off, a subtle hint of light bley to tie in its presence in the hands and feet. And about color scheme, dark tan is a supremely patrician choice, particularly for an Onu or Po-Matoran, which, judging by the eyes, I figure this is one of the latter. Which brings up my single qualm- why the Metru head? Not a rhetorical question, I'd like very much to hear your reasoning for choosing it over a Mata head. And of course, the shining star of the show, the mask. An interpretation of the Mask of Emulation, and a Noble variant to boot, I presume? The print looks to be of high quality (or at least a very good sanding job), but the matte texture of the paintjob leaves something to be desired. Otherwise, of course, it's an excellent Matoran.

I test built this last night and honestly it kinda one of those builds that just looks much better in a picture than to actually build and handle. It's a flickr moc, nothing more. Loose, illegal connections all over the play, weird proportions that don't hold up in certain angles and things just kept falling off all the time. It might work if you significantly retooled the technic based constructions with more modern pieces but considering the base model was made in 05 it really hasn't aged well.

Alright /biog/, how do you go about sorting your pieces?

I've always just had them all thrown into a big ol bin but that's just not feasible anymore and I should really downsize. I'm thinking of setting similar parts into ziplock bags and storing together so it will be a bit easier to sift through everything, but I can't decide if it would be better to sort the larger pieces into colour or 'role' (shins, feet, torsos, weapons, etc)
>>
>>8799311
I have these sorting systems with tiny drawers that I use for small technic parts. Liftarms go into bigger drawers. Then I have little boxes for torsos, armor pieces, leg pieces and whatever. Might as well use old canisters or PaB cups for that.
Sort by type first, then by colour.

Oh fuck off. Find me one single Bionicle community member who casually said they were trans or nonwhite and their faggy shit didn't leak into their interactions with others at some point. Then show me the people who gave them shit for it. If you look at members like Aanchir, Demi, or any of those retards, they always bring politics and their own narcissist views into the fandom. It's why Bionicle being "racist" and "trans" Tamaru are still a thing we hear about. Fucking sick of you morons. Maybe if you just talked about the fucking toys and lore and kept your progressive cancer at the doorstep you'd be welcomed here a little more.

Demi is almost universally despised by the community even in progressive circles.
>>
>>8799508
Looking back, it's really unfortunate that they went all-in on advertising that this was the Bionicle successor, instead of letting it naturally get there.
Von Nebula (and probably some of the other big sets) have quite a few interesting part uses that aren't really explored, like backwards piston legs and even the Phantoka torso.
I know that the small sets are a good franchise intro, but I really wonder what it would have been like to get a whole line of 150+ piece titan-scale sets. Even as a little kid I stopped being impressed with the canister sets. It probably would've been easily doable, given that 6 titans/titan combiners were the norm for most of the line's lifetime.

Does anyone know what that parts are those?

>>8799302
Dunno what you built but is not loose nor it has ilegal connections, and looks decent. Main problems i see are the arms, shoulder connection looks weird if not posed correctly , and knees become loose due to all the weight on just 2 balljoints. Using modern pieces for the legs could fix

Dude find me one. That's all I'm saying. The convo was about being ostracized by the community for not being a leftist. Some of them are trans/tranny/whatever word won't twist your tits in a knot. Then you proceeded to say that it's that are the intolerant ones. So again. Find me a leftist/trans Bionicle personality that hasn't injected their politics into the fandom and was shunned soley for their identity or outside political beliefs that they otherwise kept out of the fandom. You can't. Stop shifting blame on us when if it were me personally, I wouldn't give a shit if a user was coincidentally trans but kept that shit out of the discussion. I remember back in 2014 Seltz/Pomatoranan was at one point trans (idk if thry are still but whatever) and they literally only brought it up when recieving backlash for bashing a trans Tamaru moc on BZP. Other than that they just posted mocs here and nobody told them to piss off. So once more. Find me an example and you may have a point.

>>
>>8799734
This. That even goes for the trans people in Maskposting. If they're just posting memes or mocs or whatever, I don't care who they are. Some don't want to define themselves over being trans at all. It's spasms like "all bonks are trans, no I won't elaborate" that makes these cunts insufferable. Be trans? Ok. Create your own trans characters? Whatever floats your boat I guess. Force me to agree with your shitty headcanons or you'll call me names? Fucking retard, gtfo.

Hell, some bugslut on /lg/ is talking about how JK Rowling is based for being a TERF. For people wanting to keep politics out of the hobby, you sure get pissed whenever you see people of particular demgraphics do anything.
I hate overpolitical shit, too. Which is why I get sick of every fucking time X creator does something people flip shit and scream "tranny" even when it's completely apolitical.
Ffs, it doesn't make you guys look like you have a legitimate position. Just a bunch of impotent neets whining because muh trans agenda.

To find me an instance of a trans/leftist individual being shunned by people here solely for being trans/leftist.

Find me a trans person or leftist that was harrassed off of here for a reason other than unwanted identity politics or fuck off. Stop projecting us as intolerant in an attempt to deflect the truth of the matter, which is that lefty circles in the Bionicle fandom are way more intolerant of outside opinion/identities. You're grasping at straws so hard right now, christ.

You people bitch and moan about people bringing politics into your toys, and then you bring politics into the toys.

I never implied right wing circles anywhere, the closest you have is here, and this is the most middle of the road place due to lack of IDs and constant moderation. Thanks for the stawman deflection though. This general as I've been stating, is the most tolerant, which is ironic given the nature of the site.

Prove me otherwise. Please.

The tits wobble up and down because there's nothing securing the techinc piece in flat, it's just flanked by pieces either side of it which still allows for wiggle. The tits themselves also can spin. The Nuva shoulder for the hip pops out because while the thigh is connected to the pelvis the piece is pushed up by the balljoint. The Top nuva shoulder of the tit also is pushing the bottom one out halfway, which means the 'cup' of the bra falls off too often. Neck is way too high up comparatively to the chest. The shoulders are just absolute cancer I have the Metruan -limb-as-a-shoulder-joint because it just flat out doesn't work like that, it's too easy to knock the bicep out of wack giving you a 3-jointed limb.

I'm sure if you bought every piece for it as brand-spankin' new it would be far less fragile but as it is it can look nice enough to stand on a shelf but as a toy it fuckin' sucks. It's no different than a Flickr MOC by Black Six in that regard.

In their hugbox circles. Yet you keep having to bring them up and bitch about it even when someone just posts art or MOCs without opinions. If I had the time to sift back though a few threads, I can find plenty of examples.
Again, for someone who wants politics out of this shit, you're always bringing it in.

Most anons here shit on Demi because her art is dogshit and she's a horrid person.

Due to the low level of the head masks with a longer chin such as the Pakari won't work. You still have a wide range of masks available, even with the Mata head. I think it's only 2007+ masks that don't fit the Mata head.

I totally forgot about the eyes thing even though I designed them. Maybe you could try changing the eye color on the printouts? I can see a bit of the green through the black Kaukau, so maybe if you used a really vibrant shade of something like yellow or orange the color would actually be visible.
>>
>>8800517
Obly have a laser printer, no colour. Changing eye colour is all I usually do haha. I might try textmarker tomorrow. However if I actually go for yellow eyes on the orange Kaukau, I'm not sure that would still make a difference. I'll try some stuff and then post results.

lots of Bionicle parts have to be installed separate, he is also probably using a custom color pack If you have mid-range pc, you should be fine. If you have low range pc, I think you can do something as simple as a toa with it at least without it crapping over and probably more, especially if you adjust the quality of what's in the viewport. But producing high quality renders like that will take an hour or hours.

I used a small piece of clear tape to hold it in place. They should fit pretty well but you might need to put tape on both ends if it's still coming loose. It's nice to see the eyes in different colors, especially on the black mask with more contrast. They both look cool though.
>>
>>8802668
Weird, I never had anyone I know call any of them the lame one. Imo Pohatu was one of the best designs, both Mata and Nuva. If I was forced to call one of them the worst I'd go with Lewa, but literally only because of the hyper loose arm they decided to give him.

>>8802668
I think I got him multiple times from different relatives for christmas, not sure why. I never really liked him as a kid just because I would guaranteed immediately lose the kohli ball and I never really enjoyed his kick function, but I appreciate him for his uniqueness now that I'm older.

I kinda figured it was something like that. I agree it looks better on the black one, would try it on a white one but don't have one.

It worked well enough that the same retards think that's some kind of 'le based epiq win' and keep doing shit like begging someone to build a Toa Sneed out of Bionicle pieces.

give it some time. 3D Print will eventually get to the point where it will become almost indistinguishable from the official parts.

It genuinely fucking bugs me that the 'canon' Helryx doesn't use the metallic blue on a bunch of technic parts, including mata feet and roborider heads. You could easily have changed out most of the mata blue for it, and replace the barraki shells and mata faces with some Knights Kingdom pieces in metallic blue instead. How disappointing.

I lost his rock after kicking it once. Inside the house. I still have no idea where it is and we moved every furniture and changed the carpet in that room since...

still think the orginal gen1 bionicle was cool, but Pohatu's position comes down on 2 factor:

Coolness of masks:
-Tahu (red, iconic)
-Gali (partially transparent mask made her very unique, loved the visor)
-Lewa (sharp but smooth, reminded me of a knight helmet)
-Kopaka (His multi-eyed, unsymmetrical mask made him look like the smart guy of the group)
-Onewa (Black is always classy, and he has a mysterious air to it)
-Pohato (looks like a gasmask with those filters on the cheeks, which is cool)

Combine that his mask is the last on my list, with the fact that he is the Toa of STONE. Onewa is the toa of Earth. Stone and Eart, I don't have as different images in my head about these two as I have about Ice and Water for Kopaka and Gali. So Onewa competes with Pohatu in popularity, and Onewa's digging claws are just that much better than Pohatu's ability to "kick hard with one leg".

I think Pohatu was did in, with the color too, can't say many heroes that are poo-brown. It did give the toa lineup its unique color combination, if they just would've made him Yellow and the toa of electricity, then we would have just Robot Power Rangers.

>>8804549
Lego made the stupid decision to try to battle competition by trying to become more prestigious and bump up the piece number per set, thus causing everything to cost a lot more.

This attitude only leads to more parents to be pushed towards buying cheaper knock-off grands. It's not about the memories of and how "thing used to be", I'm objectively stating, that making individual sets too complex and cost more is not the best business move.

Example police car:
60239 (Police Patrol Car 2019) - 10 dollars
vs
7236 (Police Car 2005) - 5 dollars

You might say thats just a 5 dollar difference, but for many that a very big psychological limit.
"5 dollar? Oh that's like buying 2 bags of chips, alright you can have it, put it in the cart"
"10 dollars? You will get it for your birthday, put it back"

imo it was very decent. the TV show isnt bad at all, the first season id go so far as saying its quite good for what it is. the simple story premise worked really well i think, what didnt work is when they hinted at an overarching story several times but never actually went anywhere with it. stuff like: von nebula playing a part in the breakout, the pllans for the villain factory, whoever sent the brain attack parasites?

These are neat and all but the printing just being images of the original limbs/torso looks pretty bad. If you want it to work you have to adapt the details to the proportions of the minifigure and simplify things a bit.

Why is it always the standard minifigures. Hero Factory proved it's entirely possible to make good robot minifigures, the flat torsos just don't work. It has the same feeling to it as forcing human proportions in bonk art.

I hear you. I really wanted to see metal blue on a Bionicle character, and Helryx was the perfect candidate. Maybe that will go to Tuyet? Or a Hagah?
Mind you, I like the idea of the first Toa of Water using a Mata color. And I like that she looks a bit like a Slizer/Roborider set.
But the winning Helryx is so, so boring. It's just a womanlet hunchback. And don't get me started on the mask.
Really a lot more could've been done with her. She should look weird, experimental even. Something like this.
>>
>>8805028
The only reason why the winning one won, is because people were protest-choosing it because they didn't want noodle to win
>>
>>8804747
Gen 2 had one good thing: the marriage of full articulation with technic functions

Other than that, it had nothing that I seek or personally valued from the OG bionicle run. No interesting lore or evocative worldbuilding, sterilized and utterly bland art style, generic and simplified characterization, no "edge" or artistic flair at all, really.

There's just no reason to settle for some boring replacement when we've already tasted and savored the truly gourmet stuff
>>
>>8805028
>She should look weird, experimental even. Something like this.
Winning Helryx looks a lot more weird and experimental than what you posted. That just looks so standard humanoid, even if it is a fancy-looking build.
>>
>>8805028
A large part of it was people wanted something that would be easy to have parts for and as far as most fans are concerned they probably have no idea where those metallic parts came from even if it isn't super expensive set even by today (around25usd aftermarket) the super battle droid and star wars technic sets in general seem to people like they exist in similar blackhole like Galidor when that's not the case.
>>
>>8805028
I like the hunchback womanlet Helryx. It's not necessarily a better model, but it matches the series's style more. Helryx was supposed to be the first toa, she should look like the toa mata, only slightly less streamlined and perhaps more clunky in statute, not to mention she's old. If the contest were like a diorama where you could build Helryx alongside a revamped Tahu for reference then maybe I'd change my mind.

he's right in a way. G2 with the base skeletons and the shells with hardly any connection points looked like a cheap know off. The shells' emptiness and how loose they fit one the bones didn't help either. They improved the style in 2016, but by then they had cancelled it already, since 2015 did so poorly.

There's plenty of criticisms to be made of G2, but I don't think the plastic looks cheap at all. The shells make the figures very sleek and smooth, which is well-suited to Hero Factory but doesn't work as well with Bionicle. But like you said, the style was improved in 2016. G2 isn't perfect but I can't help but make fun of manchildren who shit on anything that isn't from 2001.

Only thing I can think of is the G2 skull mask, but you'd need a G2 head and I don't know if the look would work for a matoran. Maybe just pick a secondary color and use something in that?
>>
>>8806370
My favourite arc is everything Metru, followed by Mahri and then Mata Nui, so I'm not one of those.
The point of why I think it feels cheap in 2015 is that the models with these big shells on them felt hollow. The shells always slightly moving around on the balljoint connections diverts so much from everything clicking locking tightly in place like I am used from lego, in my eyes anyways. It might be that it was the same with hf, but I have no experience with that. 2015 was really my first time getting ccbs, and it didn't leave a good impression.

Noticed that the other one had a similar issue because there are no bluish light grey Kanohi. The dark one will have dark blue eyes but they haven't arrived yet.
>>8806386
I could use black and gold, but I'd prefer PDG and BLG because they're supposed to be the primary colors and I feel like each one doesn't quite have enough of those yet. I prefer to keep the Mata heads, so I guess I'll need to get into painting.

Heh, I have same problem. The spiky manlet I built has the Strakk helmet but its chosen color is black / lime.
And I don't really want to use another mask, helmet because Strakk's is perfect for my moc, guess I'll just have to spray paint it.

I'd just give him a black mask honestly. Wouldn't balance out the colors as well but you at least have a lot of options

Holy fuck why do these characters get battered in the story? I used to think they were cool as a kid but they're a bunch of punching bags for the new villains every time.

Now that is noice.
>>
>>8806587
no matter how good or bad the canon story is, it'll never be as good to you as the adventures you had playing with them as a kid.
>>
>>8806587
Because they're established as powerful, so if a villain beat them up, that shows how tough the new villains are, and that we'll need new heroes to surpass them. It's a very common trope, especially with toys. If we're talking comics, Thor or Hulk, or Green Lantern or Martian Manhunter are often the punching bags to show how tough any given new villain is. It's just how it is. I call it lazy storytelling, and/or plot induced stupidity, but it's still a way to tell a story.

And besides, the Toa Nuva lost to the Piraka via plot device, they weren't actually weaker than the Toa Inika. At least up to that point, I'm pretty sure the Nuva were still the most powerful Toa. I remember someone at the time saying that if Toa in general are 9/10 in some arbitrary power scale, the Nuva are 10/10. Maybe it made sense.

They're jobbers when the story calls for them to be so. If we want to use wrestling terms, think of them as a strong champion, and an up and comer heel beats them and takes the championship from them. That heel got a rub from them. Now imagine a new face comes up and eventually beats that heel for the championship, that face likewise gets a rub. Just how these things go, and it doesn't mean that original champion can't eventually come back and win it all.

is it me, or did Bionicle die at about the right time? in the later part of the 2010's everything went to shit becoming lame reboots infested with sjw propaganda. Yeah Bionicle got a "lame reboot" but there wasn't really any room to get super woke or anything. I guess that's the reason I feel lucky to not get attached to a lot of other properties other than Bionicle... I don't imagine it would get any worse if lego does the unthinkable and give bionicle an anniversary set, but still.
>>

Try looking on Ebay. There should be some listings. Or you could just do what I do and go to conventions and buy them from vendors.

>>
>>8807127
Yeah. It would be a struggle to do that. The only thing I can consider remotely woke by the bare minimum is that in the reboot they no longer restricted girls to just the water element. And the reason why I like to bring this up is because the one non-water character they chose to be female has a gun shoved between her tits.

I saw the photo and drawing of this matoran in the last thread, but after seeing that surprisingly well-put-together visual novel mockup, I honestly want to know what the fuck is going on here.
The background I recognized as being by a poster in these threads, but apparently he didn't put together the composite or recognize the matoran, both of which have some color correction to make the scene look underwater.
So, I'm left wondering: what the fuck is this and why is the quality so high? Even the design of the GUI screams understanding of Bionicle aesthetic.
Who the fuck has gone to such lengths just to be based?

buy a pound of it online for 35 bucks and realize you want more, then buy a lot of 3 lbs for 85~ bucks because the price per pound is a good deal, then decide you want more and go for a larger lot after searching and now that you've got several pounds realize you still need more to make that moc you were looking for so scrounge ebay for the plastic crack until you find a golden listing of something like 17/lb for 10 lbs and realize you just spent 170 bucks on bonk and also over 300 total and you have about 15 pounds of bonk

If you're looking for specific sets, Bricklink and the sorts will fo, maybe even Ebay. If you wanna start building yourself, buy an assortment of nice useful technic parts on Brickling and build yourself a nice little Matoran.

True. Aside from the merge of gear function and balljoints and a few nice parts, the lifting of gender restrictions was the only good thing that came of it.

dogshit take, making all the blue characters female was just an excuse for having a 5:1 ratio of male to female characters for a theme predominantly marketed to boys, and nothing else. later years didn't even adhere to it (with characters like vezok and gorast) because the writers realized how dumb it was but it was too late to change the lore. ultimately it only serves to restrict creativity and "it fits the tribal islander theme" is a laughably stupid asspull

>making all the blue characters female was just an excuse for having a 5:1 ratio of male to female characters for a theme predominantly marketed to boys, and nothing else
I’m gonna re-iterate here that the enforced gender ratio for matoran is the only reason we got female protagonists at all. Originally all the Toa were dudes until they made Hook/Gali a chick. So rather than restricting the amount of female characters that could be in the story, gender locked tribes actually ensured that they even existed at all.
All the faggots saying “bonkle needs more female representation” are retarded, if Lego did that it would tank the line.
Boys generally do not identify with feminine characters, female action figures are short packed because they don’t sell very well. It might sound sexist, but that is the reality.

That is bullshit and you know it.
>>
>>8807792
I think it's good that they made one of the Toa female, but permanently gender-locking all Matoran and Toa was a bad idea in the long run. You could easily have one female per Toa group without needing an in-story justification for always having 5 males and 1 female. The gender locked tribes were a compromise, sure, but I think most people don't like the restriction.

>That is bullshit and you know it.
Just because a character makes your peepee feel funny, doesn’t mean you identify with them. It’s actually the exact opposite of identifying (objectifying). When children play with action figures, they are an extension of the self. For straight men females are by definition the other, an object to possess but not to embody. No amount of ideological brainwashing will change this fact, hence why Disney has piles and piles of unsold Star Wars sequel trilogy toys.

Based as NaOH. Yes gender restrictions are tribal, but forcing the females into one tribe with a 6:1 gender ratio.
If "realism" was the excuse, then there'd be more female characters than male - natural gender imbalance skews female because it's reproductively beneficial.

Just because someone doesn't dignify your shitty, pseud "I use Freud words so I'm a big boy" post with a well-sourced dissertation on why you're wrong doesn't mean they're desperately ignoring an infallible argument.
It's just that you're so wrong, it's not even worth going into. Same reason I don't jump on feminists or communists when they start screeching about "muh powur dinamics," or flerfs demanding "wur's duh curv?!?" No point in putting pearls before swine. You won't break a retard's ideological conditioning.
Though if you're looking for a hugbox for your kind, feel free to head back to r9k.
