Theyve got a fucking all-star cast here, and they're accepting Q&A's (two questions per person) until July.
What questions are you gonna ask them, anons?

I don't have many real questions honestly so I'm gonna be asking them all the same two:
>Is or Was there ever any chance of seeing the original story bible (the "7 books"), or is there anything you can tell us about the original story plans in general?
>Is or Was there ever any potential possibility of Lego licensing the IP out, for stuff like, maybe, Plamo kits or an animated series?
At a loss as to what to ask guys like Martin Andersen and Carlos D'Anda, though, and I dont really have any specific questions targeting any particular person either (unless you count the Story Bible question as moreso targeted towards Bob Thompson, but still)...

Well I won't be rude but if you want some advice, spend time thinking about a larger picture and repeating patterns/themes and how to connect them together. I know I personally often create one part of a figure and am very happy with it but can't find a good way of connecting it to the rest of the figure, so planning things out like that helps me.

Yeah, I think I have to go look at titan instructions online and get a better idea of what makes a good foundation

>>8893809
Most of the time I think the best mocs use an interesting piece as a backbone somewhere, like a piece with a ball joint used as a shoulder (like a cordak blaster, vahki head, or hordika upper arm) or like a novel method of connecting different pieces, (like using two bohrok feet next to eachother as a knee joint, or maybe a gearbox being integrated in a weird place like the hips or upper arm)

I've seen this idea get suggested a few times, and on one hand I like it. I truly wanted to see Toa Ahkmou. And the 08 Makuta were wasted like that.
On the other however, I would've rather seen Shadow Toa as a later group of antagonists so to flesh them out more. Possibly in a parallel world where the story focused on the MU's war against Teridax (no offense to Bara Magna fans but I just didn't care for that plot), with Ahkmou and Gavla joining as members as you mentioned.
Plus I fear that, had the 08 villains been Toa, the designers would've limited themselves to more humanoid designs, while with the Makuta they were able to get crazier.

I think a whole team of Makuta can work if you change one small detail. Of course their problem is their insane power level.
What messed everything up was the "All Makuta are on the same power level AND have all 42 Kraata powers" rule, so you got 8 Teridax-tier guys against 6+2 Toa. Of course the story team was forced to come up with bullshit ways to nerf them.

But remove that rule and allow them to vary in power, and things get a lot more even. Have Makuta range from Toa Nuva+ tier, with only a few Kraata powers at their disposal (lesser Makuta like VirginBitil) to demigod tier, with most or all Kraata powers (greater Makuta like Terry Ducks).
Alternatively, you know, keep all Makuta at the same power level and just don't make said level so fucking astronomically high. Teridax relied on brain more than power most of the times, anyway. A race of scientists never needed be so fucking strong to begin with.
>>

>had the 08 villains been Toa, the designers would've limited themselves to more humanoid designs, while with the Makuta they were able to get crazier.
I'm certain that 2008 established fairly clearly that the designers back then were gonna do whatever the hell they wanted, anyway. Besides, the Mistika Makuta were totally mutated anyway, and I'm sure you could've handwaved the Phantoka Makuta as "the Shadow Toa had fucked with their bodies in an attempt to bring themselves closer to Makuta." If it were a screwy fanatical clut to Makuta, that totally could've been a thing. Woulda been a neat way to bring back the sorta "tribal" feel from the early years too, since characters like Mutran and Chirox (the "mad scientist" ones who were fucking around with creating Rahi) woulda been recontextualized as regular cult members playing God via black magic n necromancy and such (that and it would only drill in characters like Gorast's personality in further).
>>
>>8893638
Well the heros need somebody to fight, right? You've got the canister villains that's 1:1, and the Titan sets are usually villains in a 2:1 ratio. The toa get one non-Toa ally to help fight the several big bad guys.

Really thinking about it, how the fuck did we not get a shadow toa in any year? You'd think they'd have done it since it would have sold like hotcakes. Worst case scenario it's packed with a vehicle like Lesovikk. Best case, it's a double canister set like Iruni and Norik. Ahkmou vs Takanuva or something. Dedicate a side plot to it during the Ignika arc or even metru nui arc.
>>
>>8894222
Or you could assign only one Rahkshi ability to each Makuta to go with their standard shadow powers and mask powers, and you could explain that leader-level Makuta were special for possessing all Rahkshi powers. That way you don't have to weaken or mutate them.
Though the idea of canister-sized Makuta still doesn't sit well with me. It's weird that in a year full of vehicles and Makuta, the designers decided to dedicate a titan set slot to Takanuva of all characters, not even giving him his Ussanui back, thereby making a looming hulk out of a Toa character rather than a Makuta.
>>
>>8894422
After all the times they've meddled with the idea, you'd think they'd be comfortable with evil Toa. I mean they did corrupted Lewa twice, infected Tahu, Vakama Hordika, Tuyet, even the Piraka masqueraded as faux Toa for a time, and the '01 Shadow Toa were one of the most underutilized and forgotten concepts of the entire line. Even MNOG planned to do a side plot about a Makuta cult, which Ahkmou was meant to be a member of. Maybe Lego's higher ups had something against the idea of heroes gone bad? Or the mediocre sales of the Hordika gave them second thoughts?
Either way, to me the 2008 arc will always be one part of the story that had way too much missed potential yet too much content crammed into it at the same time. They had to tie up the main plot, bring back the Nuva after setting up their destiny all the way back in '01, reveal the GSR and go deeper into the Makuta's past, to which Bob Thompson had wanted to dedicate an entire year but the executives turned down the idea of further flashback arcs. So '08 had to elaborate on both the present and the past, and then you had needless additional stuff like Mazeka and Vultraz, all the alternate universe insanity, and Greg's inane, directionless serials with a bajillion side plots that lead nowhere.
>>
>>8894481
I know that’s a joke post, but it can also mean “warrior” or “fighter”.
>>
Wasn't there a scrapped plot point that was going to see Ahkmou becoming a Toa of Shadow in the 2008 story and fighting against the Nuva?
>>
>>8894422
Pretty funny that closest we got to the concept, setwise, was Umarak of all things. Ok sure, he's not strictly a Toa, but he's around the same size and powers as the heroes are.
>>
>>8894481
Fuck off Maori bonehead. Dance your Haka elsewhere.
Anyway, no one wants to make all Toa evil. Just calling out Lego for their shitty non-commitment. They were the ones absolutely obsessed with making Toa go evil, but once they had the opportunity to handle the idea properly in a main line story, they chickened out and instead turned Takanuva into yet another edgy shithead rather than the enlightening hero he was set up to be, while Greg kept piling up all his morally grey heroes, homicidal Toa and dark alternate Tanakuvas in his serials.
The Shadow Ahkmou idea would have had potential and it would have built on what had been set up before. After a confrontation between righteous heroic Toa and their unfortunate brethren corrupted by Makuta's influence, the good guys could have won by showing remorse and forgiveness, and convincing the dark Toa to see the light and turn on their evil leaders to clear their name. And it would have been a nice way to round out Ahkmou, the Shadow Matoran and give more insight into how the Brotherhood worked. But Greg was fully opposed to the notion of redemption arcs because of his close-mindedness.

He is right though, it would save canon. The saving grace of the Rahi contest was that Rahi are just whipped up by Makuta. Any creature could exist from the imagination of shapeshifters and they didn't neccessarily need any function to serve other than fill space and be alive. Dark Hunters fucked it up though.

Just the ripple effect of the massive world expansion post-03. Most of the "species" or whatever you want to call them during 01-03 had relatively straightforward roles, each tied to Mata Nui's purpose in some way. But after they brought in the DHs in 04 and the Brotherhood goons in 05, the world got too big for its own good. It had to be populated and the whole "everything is part of Mata Nui's functions" angle was diminished.
Personally I think it would have been interesting if all those new species were based on the different worlds Mata Nui had visited and studied. Like he wanted to recreate the cultures he came across, as some giant experiment to find out how they could be made to work together and form a functioning society. And like some giant ant farm, they would mostly be kept separate in his body, but sometimes he'd let them intermingle. They could be the prototypes for the reformed society on Spherus Magna. Or something like that.
I don't know, I'm not of the opinion that everything should be elaborately explained. For example I like that the lower islands were mostly kept a mystery. But I also liked how the GSR reveal gave a new perspective on the 01-03 characters and everything seemed to have a justified purpose beyond just their roles in the plot. Most of those expanded universe characters lacked that.

I'm fairly confident (just a guess, but an educated one) that the Toa Ahkmou set idea was split into Takanuva and (I don't anyone's ever mentioned this, but feel free to disprove that) Vultraz. Takanuva is obvious, the Shadow Leech who hit him WAS meant for Ahkmou afterall:

>The BIONICLE story team idly considered transforming Ahkmou into a Toa of Shadow to play a large story role in 2008. Although this plan did not come to fruition, in the final story Icarax did travel to Metru Nui to drain Ahkmou's light. However, when the Makuta arrived, he seized an opportunity and attacked Takanuva rather than Ahkmou. (BS01)

But think about it. Had Toa Ahkmou been released as a set, he wouldn't have been one of the canister Makuta. It's more likely he would've been a boxed set a la Lesovikk.
So what I'm saying is that Vultraz replaced Ahkmou's slot: asshole Matoran/Toa, vehicle+pilot set, agent of Icarax (double agent to Teridax in Ahkmou's case?).
Heck, the Mask of Vulture might've even been meant for Toa Ahkmou at first, even as an early sketch. All "Shadow Toa Ahkmou" MOCs give the little shit a Rau, but it's highly unlikely he would've kept it. Icarax would've given him an immoral Kanohi.

But yeah no it's not just you. This sort of thing happens when you canonize fan creations left and right. Adding mocs into canon was a fun way to involve the fans but at no point did anyone step back and realize that all anyone was ever sending in was dark hunter edge lord super death robot ultimate life forms and that it was basically drowning out the "good" side of the story in a not very interesting way. It's like half the characters in this canon are dark hunters.

Because the hero cast were the same three teams receiving power-ups while fighting new villains each year.

>the designers decided to dedicate a titan set slot to Takanuva of all characters (...) thereby making a looming hulk out of a Toa character rather than a Makuta.
It's still funny to me that of all things "Let's turn a Toa, known for their average size, into a titan!" were their best idea. I get they wanted a hero Titan but, I don't know, choose someone else. Or make an Exo Toa 2.0, so you get to turn any Toa into a Titan.

Also, it was disappointing that, in a year full of Makuta, only one was a Titan (a pretty underwhelming one at that, in terms of build). A few of them were taller than the average Toa, but were still around their size.

>>8896711
It's baffling since the previous years had cooler and more affordable store exclusives. Vultraz at least had an exclusive mask and was relatively cheap. Mazeka was just a waste of everything, and expensive at that.

That anon here or on the previous thread put it best. 2008 managed to be both packed with stuff (too much arguably) AND full of missed opportunities at the same time. Just bad usage of set slots all around.

Ignika and Takanuva should've been swapped around. Mask of Life on a titan would've been fine because they did it anyway the next year with Toa Mata Nui, a smaller Takanuva on a vehicle would've been a callback to the Ussanui. I thought the Swamp Strider was decent, but Mazeka being another irrelevant revenge guy along with Vultraz/Gavla/etc being Ahkmou reskins retroactively taints all of them for me.

Or, you know, a Mata Nui, the year's climactic reveal that was even promoted on the website. In a year full of needlessly massive sets and altogether pointless fluff (Mazeka, Vultraz, yellow Jetrax), this is the one they miss out on? The very thing they had been building up to since 2001.
I get that the GSR's designs isn't well suited for Constraction and the grey color might not have made it appealing to kids. But a slight redesign and color tweak could easily have fixed those. Besides, '08 Takanuva and Hydraxon showed that Lego was willing to put out mostly grayscale titan sets, so some version of the GSR model could have been possible too. Although I imagine if they did make a GSR set, it would have required some fuckhuge blade weapon and a shooting gimmick to fit in with the rest of the line. Maybe they could have integrated a shooter into his chest, as a nod to how the robot shoots the Mask of Life out at the end? But this is getting way to hypothetical now.

Trannies are narcissists, obviously, but yesterday was some trans awareness day or something, I guess. Only reason I know is because the gf still has a Tumblr and was complaining about seeing all the extra tranny shit that was being recommended to her. Really wish fags weren't so vocal to the point of not being able to avoid it, even if you try.

All this tranny talk reminds me, I've been wanting to build an all trans figure.
However even with the help of dubious chink off-brand I wouldn't be able to do it and I feel kinda sad about it.
Next step is to build myself a Takadox with as much trans light blue as I can fit I guess.

Oof, way to put salt in the wound. It irks me because there exists the silver and golden version. Sucks a black one doesn't exist.

Pretty sure I saw them in black in that Pohatu Phantoka prototype, though those were probably painted. No idea if they exist in as misprints.

Btw it also boils my blood pic related never came in black.
>>
>>8898656
The redesign was in black, but that's hardly a improvement. One of my favourite bizarre missing recolors was Glatorian fist in black. Had to wait until HF to start to get one, and even then the set didn't even come with a pair.
>>
>>8898658
The redesign sucks I agree. If only that joint had really come in the black Visorak set.

>Glatorian fist in black.
I don't like those 2009 fists for the simple fact those pieces break easily, like any joint past 2008. I prefer the ones from the HF sets, the material is much more durable.
My complain is, said fists don't exist in keetorange which sucks because my Glatorian Mata Nui is already crumbling, and I really don't want to give him black hands due to his color scheme.
>>
>>8894532
That's a good point. Umarak was pretty much the Master/Uniter of Shadow, he even got his own "Nuva seal" on his box like the 6 Toa and Ekimu. He could even Unite with the Creatures. One has to wonder how/why he came into being, and if/how he was related to the Toa.... which of course we'll never know.

I kind of have a headcanon (that I still need to write down all gen details of, if I stop being lazy) that Umarak is actually some sort of evolved Creature of Shadow. Because there were Creatures for all the Elements, including Light. Plus his animal-like features, including digitigrade legs and antlers, sort of support this.

And if you want to go even further, maybe it can be implied that Makuta was the Toa of Shadow, since Ekimu was later confirmed to have been transformed into G2’s Toa of Light temporarily, and that when Umarak tried to use Makuta’s former Mask of Control and was turned into Umarak the Destoryer, maybe it was like some sort of pseudo-Toa-Creature unification, like the other Toa and Elemental Creatures do. Since Makuta couldn’t physically be in that realm of existence, just his old mask, which perhaps had some of his spiritual essence still attached to it, and with Makuta apparently still being a powerful force, that was enough for it to count as a Toa-Creature unification. As well as Makuta later basically absorbing Umarak the Destoryer into his being, to be able to try and enter the physical world again.

Umarak the Hunter might either be an evolved Elemntal Creature of Shadow, or maybe that’s his natural form, witchim being more powerful and more of a force to be reckoned with than the other Creatures. Because Shadow can literally be everywhere, thus allowing him to have a much more imposing form. On the flip side, Agil is the Elemental Creatire of Light, and even compared to the other Creatures, he’s rather small. But this could be die ti the fact that even in total darkness (Shadow) a single source of light can be seen from miles away. Plus Agil was one of the first to leave lasting damage to Umarak the Destoryer, when he scratched at one of his eyes and left that scar.

Thank you for thinking so! I really appreciate it. Haha, I was worried it might’ve come out like insane babble.

And now that you mention it, I kind of thought of another random head canon about what Ekimu and Makuta might’ve been.

Speaking of insane babble, here’s all this! It’s a bit on the longish side, so here’s a link, because character limits: https://pastebin.com/JMvjTUg4

That was quite a lot of conjecture, and some complete made up headcanon, some of which has some basis, some of which does not. And some of which somewhat based on existing mythology and stories from our own world and history.

And if anyone read it, then thank you, and tell me what you thought, and if you had any ideas of your own or questions on that, or similar stuff.

idk, I'm shoe size 46 and I have no trouble squatting on my whole feet. it's way more comfortable than just on fingers, you're kind of sitting on your feet and the weight gets distributed better

Them being way stronger is the problem, because then the story team realized that they would be impossible to beat, and so had to blind half of them and lock the other half out of their powers. Icarax gets the shit kicked out of him by Ignika, and then two of the Makuta jobbers then vaporize him. Karda Nui had 8 antagonists supposed to be on par with Teridax, the power scaling was completely fucked.

Thoughts on using metru red in a toa of stone's color scheme? I think I have a good build almost done in stud.io and I like the color combo but it still feels a little out of place. I know that the brown Visorak had mata red and personally I think the metru red resembles the clay I live on top of, but still. It's a brown and red toa. Seems weird I guess.

Already fixed that and found the missing hip piece for him.
Mask is damaged, but perhaps I will find one in good condition.
Plus, I modificated all the "on hands" figs with all the new parts. Looks neat, especially Chirox. He really needed something to cover his lower legs and shoulders. Perhaps, in the future I plan to give him even more mods.
Nurak turned out to be great as well. Metru Matoran body fits him well. As well as the Metru shoulders.

This is how he looks so far. Many of the pieces are placeholders (the hydruka armor will instead be onewa hordika heads, the inika armor will be piraka armor, and the shin armor will be the tahu uniter shoulder armor) and he's missing a head (going with the 2015 mask of earth in gold) but he's basically done now until I decide I don't like him any more.

I like the brown and red honestly, though I think the yellow(or gold?) is a step too far. I'd suggest going with dark brown and tan, in addition to the metru red. I know you can get that piraka foot in reddish brown(avak) along with the thigh covers(vezon and fenrakk) so you could build it in real life and probably have something very good looking.

While you might be right, I looked at the handful of pieces I used to decide to build this moc in the first place and I think I'm going to stick to my guns on this one, I really like how metru brown and pearl gold look together. I've got a shakier concept for a third Toa in the works right now (I had previously made an Av-Toa and posted its physical form in a thread ages ago, maybe september or earlier) so I want to focus on that for now. I appreciate the feedback though, I think if I wasn't so lazy I would take your advice fully instead of brushing it off like I am right now.

With all the discours going on about how to do the Toa Hagah contest, what do you think the Hagah should look like?

I personally think they should embody the level of customisation the Mata have. Use the Metru buck and give it subtle differences that make each one a little unique from the others, but ultimately all use similar pieces and look like a cohearent team.

I'd prefer it if each one had a unique mask, breast plate, pauldrons, cuisse/greave, shin and spear tip - As in no piece is the same for more than one. It'd also be cool if each on had different Metallic armour, let's say Metal Blue, Pearl Gold, Gunmetal and Copper.

For example, let's say Gaaki is Navy and Black, with Metal Blue armour. She uses Knights Kingdom pauldrons, Knights Kingdom greaves, Mata feet, A roborider head block as the Breast Plate and wears a Kaukau. Her spear is tipped with a Knights Kingdom Sword, all in Metallic Blue. And her legs use Piraka Shins.

Good start. If I may, Norik and Iruini both had some black in the torso. Norik's upper torso was Black and Iruini's gear guard was black. It might be an idea to give each of these guys one of the pieces in black - and maybe Bomonga could use Dark Grey instead. Also didn't they do some knight kingdom stuff in copper?

It's a major shame they never did make any Metal blue masks at any point.

The color balance on this is genuinely attrocious. More dark blue on the extremeties or more metal blue in the torso.

The only way to balance it would be to remove metal blue or sink at least another 20€ into it for an inferior build.
The metal blues and your mentioned browns are not really interchangable imo. The browns can work together in a moc, the metal blues can't. I had some metal blue KK swords ordered and it looks like trash.

I would also like to see them all use different metallic highlight colors, with gunmetal, pearl gold, and so on like >>8910998 says. Knights Kingdom pieces might be a little too out there for me, but I think it would be fucking hilarious if the gunmetal one used Titanuva's gunmetal breastplate as a Rhotuka spinner, while the pearl gold one used the pearl gold Vohtarak shell.
I would also like to see unique chest armors. A (webbed) Hordika foot can work, as would a Nuva chest, maybe even something horrible involving the adaptive Pakari.

I have my own ideas of what the Hagah look like. However, I suck at everything (MOCing, LDD/Studio, drawing etc) which means I won't have time to git gud and take part in the contest. So might as well describe my Hagah here, maybe I'll give someone an idea or two.

Each of them has a different metallic color and spear tip, but I don't see them having a different breastplate/shin/pauldron/foot each. I see them closer to the Inika in philosophy, with common designs shared among them. This is purely hypothetical, but it could be something like this:
>Gaaki has a Gahlok Kal shield like Iruini
>Pouks has a Metrutoran torso like Norik
>Kualus and Bomonga share a third, unseen design
Ditto for the pauldrons and other shared elements.

This is what I decided so far
>Pouks: bulky, short body like Norik. Brutaka gold armor
>Bomonga: tall, lean body like Iruini. Gunmetal armor
>Kualus: average body (between Norik and Iruini). Metallic blue armor
>Gaaki: Average body like Kualus. Brutaka gold+silver armor (because pure silver feels boring, and pure gold looks tacky. Think a 1 Euro coin).

Not sure about the mask designs. I've got some ideas, but nothing set in stone. But I definitely don't want Kualus to get a scope on his mask. Like come on, give that to someone else for once, or just avoid it altogether.
Not sure about the spear tips either. The only one I'm sure about is Gaaki- one of Tahu Nuva's lava blades, to mirror Norik's spear design. I like the idea that each Hagah has a spear design that you wouldn't except from their element.

Also, each keeps another weapon aside from the spear+shield they got when they got promoted. It's the weapon they used when they were "normal Toa", pre-recruitment by Teridax. This is an headcanon I have for all Hagah, not just Teridax's team.
Dunno who gets what. But I've considered that Kualus could be an archer.

Lego is such shit nowadays that even their special edition stuff looks like crap. Which isn't a shocker considering that instead of conmemorating the anniversary of one of their most succesful IP's they'd rather celebrate the dullest franchise in the history of movie franchises. Seriously each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others. Aside from the gloomy imagery, the series’ only consistency has been its lack of excitement and ineffective use of special effects, all to make magic unmagical, to make action seem inert.

Perhaps the die was cast when Rowling vetoed the idea of Spielberg directing the series; she made sure the series would never be mistaken for a work of art that meant anything to anybody?just ridiculously profitable cross-promotion for her books. The Harry Potter series might be anti-Christian (or not), but it’s certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement. No one wants to face that fact. Now, thankfully, they no longer have to.

> a-at least the books were good though
"No!"

The writing is dreadful; the book was terrible. As I read, I noticed that every time a character went for a walk, the author wrote instead that the character "stretched his legs." I began marking on the back of an envelope every time that phrase was repeated. I stopped only after I had marked the envelope several dozen times. I was incredulous. Rowling's mind is so governed by cliches and dead metaphors that she has no other style of writing. Later I read a lavish, loving review of Harry Potter by the same Stephen King. He wrote something to the effect of, "If these kids are reading Harry Potter at 11 or 12, then when they get older they will go on to read Stephen King." And he was quite right. He was not being ironic. When you read "Harry Potter" you are, in fact, trained to read Stephen King.

If we don't do anything, this fandom is going to be doomed too

The autists from TTV and their draconian rules are likely a bigger menace than the trannies and so on that populate the fandom.

What the fuck. I want SCPs like 342, the whole thing around Syncope Symphony, the flesh that hates, SCP-4999.
So I don't need it to be only super scary horror all the time, but I need the ideas to be cool and creative, wether it's unsetteling or just interesting.
On that note, has anyone built SCP creations with Bionicle parts? I know I've seen horror and sci-fi horror in System.

>>8914391
It's real. Written by mentally ill retardfaggot. That sick fucker managed to ruin whole fandom with his autism. And then people in this fucking genereal wonder why being a faggot will never be considered normal.
>>
>>8914395
>instead of conmemorating the anniversary of one of their most succesful IP's
Definitely not Bionicle I assume
>>
>>8914437
ill take normal autism over tranny autism any day

also hold the fuck up

>Seriously each episode following the boy wizard and his pals from Hogwarts Academy as they fight assorted villains has been indistinguishable from the others.
>it's certainly the anti-James Bond series in its refusal of wonder, beauty and excitement
Pre-Craig bond films are as indistinguishable and formulaic as they come

>SCP-2721-LORD maintains both a primary "aesthetic" blog and a secondary "private" blog in which it talks about its feelings regarding SCP-2721-LYRE.

Haha I love SCPs

Hey anons, how do you interpret Tahu Mata's sword? Do you think of it like MNOG and say it's a flame-shaped sword that can THEN turn on fire for real, or do you go the Bionicle Heroes route and say it's just the handle, and that when the "blade" of fire only comes out when the handle/torch is activated?
>>
>>8915614
Yes.
>>
>>8915614
Personally I like to imagine it's a thin rapier underneath the flame and the fire makes it seem thicker
>>
>>8915748
>imagining something that isn't even depicted in any kind of media
Is this based or cringe? I cannot form my own critical opinions
>>
>>8915614

SCPs are and were, since the beginning, pretty much just “ooh, wouldn’t this be spoopy, Ooh, creepypasta crap I’m 14 years old this is so cool and not overly edgy and pointless, ooh” stuff.
>>
>>8914398
Don’t forget about the porn.

It is VERY swooshable now that the wings have been fixed. The legs fold up like landing gear, which was completely unintentional, but a fun emergent feature regardless.
>>8913521
Just went through my pieces. I apparently owned 3-4 Keelerak shells, so thats plausible. I also re-added the lanky arms to feel more authentic and stable.
>>
>>8910962
I like this idea of uniformity among them, as if they could have been real sets
>>
>>8915762
I mean, did you never play pretend with your toys? I only ever posed them and set them up on things to look at but I still pretended how they would be used.

>>8915917
Newgrounds and Pixiv are leagues better than Twitter for quality porn. Hell even fucking 4chan is better for porn than Twitter.
>>
>>8916012
Thats what im saying bro. Cringe because it's got no basis in canon, but absolutely based because you're treating it as just a cool toy.
>>
>>8916041
My fanon > any existing canon

Someone needs to animate a bunch of SCP-owned probes straight up nuking the lifeform. Jesus fuck. I swear to god, all of the SCPs with the damned rainbow flag suck shit, like this one: http://www.scpwiki.com/scp-2779
>one of the caretakers legit has Mx. as a title. MX.

It's almost one AM and we still haven't hit page nine so I made a new thread early

That article feels like somebody was obsessed with the idea of a cute pig monitor and made these supposedly seasoned agents act like children. One of them even had a backpack in the article. This is ridiculous.
>>
>>8916205
I didn’t read the article, and I don’t care for SCP stuff, but I’ve had jobs where I had to take a backpack to work to carry all the necessary equipment and tools.
>>
>>8916205
Are you trying to fucking shame backpacks you dumb slut?

But it's a group of researchers - lab coats. They would just wheel in a trolley or pass it through a door. It's just the author filtering everything through a sophomoric lens. I understand that in some contexts it would be appropriate, but in my opinion, in this one it isn't.
