>>8960222I thought people had that discussions 15 years ago already.
>>8960222the bigger subversion of christianity in bionicle is that god is rightly described as a jobber
>>8960222not christian but can appreciate the sentiment. I'd rather have people believing in an actual religion then worshiping toy lore like a redditor
>>8960222Well, I prefer this alternative to trannies.
When did Avohkii creep up to over $10?
>>8960269>Lucifer was right all along>God is a black man
>>8960576I looove the looks of the "Masters Of Disaster" bootlegs. Why can't more bootleggers implemenmt more soul and kino into their builds?
Post your old MOCs. Even then, the Skull Spider mask was one of my favorites.
>>8960786You asked for it, you got it.I'd call this my first MOC that'd barely even qualify as one. Barely have too many pieces, lacks the articulations you guys are good at pulling, and I clearly have a habit of adding too many things to it. If or when I can find more parts I can make use of, I'd be able to make some Mata hybrid type builds.So what do you think?
>>8960920>I'd call this my first MOC that'd barely even qualify as one.No, it totally does. Picture related is a MOC i made using the Mata torso.> and I clearly have a habit of adding too many things to it./biog/ hates the newer style of MOCing, so what you're doing isn't bad. People used to do it all the time back in the day. >So what do you think?It's an okay first try. I like the weapon.
>>8960920>clearly have a habit of adding too many things to it.Um, based?
Old MOCs it is
>>8960989is that suppose to be a rahi?Looks nice, especially with the claws and legs.
>>8960719shit that helmet is actually pretty kino
The Rahkshi Kaita revamp is pretty good, it towers above Inika builds and its leg construction is surprisingly stable enough to hold its heavy top. Anyone with 3 should definitely give it a try.
>>8961571Cunt Shark is back!
>>8961601You know it
>>8962213Mr Makuro looks pissed that his factory was canceled.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNy4A1dl9LYhow have I not seen this before, holy shit
>>8962418What the fuck
Pohatu build is awesome
>>8960286Who's worshiping it? I think people just enjoy the story, is that too reddit now?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9LDpzKvEbY&tGreat, but kinda wasted potential if you ask me.
>>8962522so much soul
Mornin' bonkbros.What are you doing today?
>>8962572I'm picking up a lot i won the action of yesterday.picrelated, plus Manas, Gukko, Pewku and Takanuva.
>>8962625Dang, made out like a bandit. The photo also makes me unreasonably mad that my Bahrag are missing all of their rubber bands so they're a bloody mess.
>>8962635The bidwars got pretty intense so they didnt come out cheap, but it was definitely worth it.I was missing the Queens, Manas, the Boxor and the 03' Rahis, so this will help my collection alot. From the bin-shots he also has the PowerPack Hau and other goodies.
>>8962572I was gonna finally get some GoBricks shit, especially curious for the trans clear parts, and I was gonna do a video with first impressions and all and spend my evening checking out and sorting parts.But DHL was like "nah we're kinda busy today, you'll get it tomorrow"
>>8962625Some nice stuff there, curious how much (roughly if you don't wana exact number) did it end at?
I'm listening to TTV's interview of Ryder Windham and it's been pretty informative. I had no idea that Okoto was origianl uniform, and that it was the explosion that created the distinct regions. I was already going to read the books, but this has made me somewhat excited to read them.
So what was up with the strange amount of homeschooled fundamentalist Christian kids in the bionicle community?
>>8960786It's only been 16 years or so
>>8960222Take shit in toiletPut bionicles in it
>>8960786>Skull Spider mask was one of my favorites.mine too
>>8963239I’d rather put you in it
>>8960994Yeah it was some rahi thing I'd thrown together with a few parts I had at the time. Nothing amazing, but it was fun to build I remember.>>8962625Super jealous on the Bahrag, great grabs all around though.>>8963241All Skull masks were pretty great. Love the Terminator feel that Kulta's had
>>8963487I could never really take Kulta seriously because his name means "gold" and "honey/sweetie/darling" etc.
>>8963492>>8963499That's hilarious, love when names accidentally mean something else in another language.Suppose it works since I gave him the gold skull mask [spoiler]and he's my favorite G2 set outside of Umarak[/spoiler], nice little touch.
>>8960786I looked through my old pictures and found these guys from 2015. Their build is quite similar to the Mahritoran, but I don't know if that was a coincidence or not.
I feel like I just did something I shouldn't have.
>>8963543Something about these I'm really digging. Simple but oh so effective.
>>8963555Was that crack there before putting the pieces together?
>>8963594I don't think it was...
>>8963555ccbs parts using that socket type aren't compatible with old sockets you absolute fool
the mocs posted here is why the discord users laugh at us
>>8963635Yeah, I just realized some days later. My spiky manlet needed a longer neck so
>>8963657Joke's on them, because only losers use Discord
>>8963657alright then, let's see discord users mocs from 15 years ago
>>8963657Sounds awful but i'm sure they will get over it.
>>8963657No-one cares what the subhumans that use Discord use. Literally all of them could drop dead and no-one here would know. If you care about what Pisscord tranny faggot subhumans think, go join them and never return.
>>8963657lol u gay
>>8963169>fundamentalist ChristianLooks like you need to go back to school.
>>8963657Um... can I have the link?
>>8963773Here you go. it's even older.
>>8963657Well thats on you, not on me. Im working on making my second "mata" version of one of my Nuva-masked mocs. I took the idea if a rockem sockem robot a bit too seriously. Still waiting on a bunch of BL orders to finish him.>>8962572Doing well, still have your instructions lying around. I plan on building a few matoran based on her body design. Im definitely using my new limb design which uses minimal sort-of heresy. (I just seal off the rounded plates with 2l flex tube to add rigidity, and use a special bootleg piece for their necks).
>>8964049High quality moc right here
>>8964066>high qualityNot yet. Stupidly high level of articulation. People used to endlessly complain about my builds being too busy, now people complain I use too much system. Cant please everyone. I have a few more in the pipeline, but because I feel a compuksive beed to be original, the parts I need are insanely expensive or obscure and Ive had to use replacements for now. Dropping 80$~ dollars on a fucking Matatu misprint isnt something I necessarily want to do, but if I dont want to start painting pieces like so many others, its a cost Ill have to eat. Also, who the hell fucked up the aftermarket prices of recolor masks so badly? Back in 2015 prices werent nearly half as high as they are now.
Sorry for the horrendous spelling errors by the way. Im not used to typing on this keyboard and dont really proofread. Next in line for being built are:-White Hunchback Mata Toa-Red Kaukau Toa Nuva/Mata-Galidor Euripedes Spacesuit-Gorm (Maroon) brickbuilt body-Toa of Plasma with Komau-Toa of Water with Misprint Matatu and Blue / Tan colorscheme-Frost Beetle revampIve done plenty of revamps, I tend to try and preserve the early G1 2001-2004 aesthetic, and try to hide newer parts in. Without being obstrusive. So far, Ive revamped the Razor Whale, Crystal Climber, and most recently the Phase Dragon.
>>8964088>>8964121Didn't realize you were the guy who made the fishing toa. Idk man, I've never really had any problems with your builds. A lot of Bionicle fans just seem rather nitpicky to me. The only time I've got a problem with people adding a ton of details to their mocs is when it starts to hinder articulation, or if it's for a canonization contest.
>>8964209I dabble in a bit of everything. Ive gotten to the point whete im just collecting all the obscure/unsuccessful Lego lines and building mocs mashing all the properties. Using obscure pieces is a fun way to spice up builds, THAT, and I straight up refuse to use a frame because theyre the death of creativity.
>>8964049>>8964088I started going for more System recently. My new go-to hand design is all System and I'm starting to go for full limbs as well.I kinda wanna try a build like this now just for the sake of it.
>>8963543big fan of these, super cute. looks like something lego might have actually put out post 2007 if they hadn't made the awful avtoran torso.
>>8964376Technic's probably going to be what I mainly use in the future, but the use of system in bonkle mocs is starting to grow on me. Though, I still totally understand why it might not appeal to everyone. Ended up using some Galidor parts in this guy's guitar since we're on the topic of using parts from forgotten Lego IPs.
>>8964488When no more Bionicle style parts are produced, a hybrid of Technic and System is the answer, Anon. You could then even try other brands for more colour variety if you feel like it. I built some new lower arms for my main character and I'm actually happy with how they turned out, because they look Bionicle enough to me. Still gonna try one of those Mata builds that >>8964376 has.
>>8963657Based, post more MOCs to make discordtrannies seethe.
>>8964518I like what I see. Be sure to post the rest of him when it's all done.
Posting old ass MOC.https://brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=568879
>>8964545Well, it's probably my oldest figure, so it's constantly ready but also kinda not. The lower arms are the most System in limbs.Most is Lego, but there is also some Mega, Vonado and I think Vatos in there.
>>8964584Obviously I'd forget pic.
>/biog/ actually posting mocs for once
>>8964606Long ago, Moc-posting was pretty common. Long before G2s announcement, even. Most of the Moccists from then moved to flickr, facebook(?), or just kinda dropped off the face of the Earth. The discords unfortunately and ironically not really the place to post them either. And Im not using fucking instagram. Ive been posting here for years and kinda miss the quiet containment the threads used to be. Now its just >muh system and >muh color blocking. Its all so tiresome.
>>8964625>TIREsomeYeah people complain about those too
>>8964625What's wrong with System tho? If there was a lot of System shilling and bashing I was probably absent.Overall I think it can add to a figure.As for colour blocking, isn't that some sort of a colour wheel thing or something? Never got into that.I took the clean-colour-scheme pill tho, ordering a bunch of offbrand parts just to have pins, axles and connectors in fitting colours.
You must choose
>>8964606I know! Novel right?
I don't have any room for my hoard of bonks currently. Have a meme.
>>8964606Spiting trannies is the one thing that can unite 4channel, even if the trannies in question may be imaginary.
>>8964567Not bonk, but cute.
What did you guys think the skull villains were before the reveal? I thought they were race that original came to conquer Okoto, but we instead defeated and given a chance to integrate into society. I imagined they were mostly warriors with Kulta being their leader. Skull Slicer being an exception. I justified them working together with Makuta as some sort of coup.
>>8964625I rather start cutting pieces than start using syst*m.
>>8964625color blocking > incomprehensible messes
>>8965268Separating colors on a figure into different areas to make the design more readable. Think the difference between just placing pieces of each color randomly and sequestering different colors to lower arms/lower legs/torso/hips/etc
>>8964786I choose all of them
>>8964625I forgot how cool Tuma's helmet looks. As much as I disliked the other Glatorian designs the Skrall and Vorox guys had plenty of good ideas going on for them. Even though the set themselves were the typical late Bionicle gangly, half-baked Inika designs. But, still.
>>8965625Worst post I have ever seen in /biog/ by far
>>8965680Then you haven't been here very long, newfag
Does anyone remember an old bionicle webcomic that was done using photos of the actual toys? It was about a female toa who went around maskless most of the time and was pretty silly. I remember thinking it was hilarious as a child and would like to revisit it since I'm just thinking about it for the first time in like 15 years.
Why does lego keep pushing this shit?https://twitter.com/LEGO_Group/status/1386968409322176513
>>8965828idk, but what does it have to do with bionicle?
>all this discussion and MOC-postingMan, this is nice. I saw some discussion about using more than just Bionicle bits, wanted to ask those anons how they incorporate System bits into their builds. Is it mostly greebling? Have you found much success doing a more involved fusion of System and Bionicle? I've been looking to start doing a lot of that especially now that I've got some System balljoints and Mixel joints that I think would help that integration go more smoothly.
>>8965875It shows how hilariously out of touch lego isAnd it's somewhat related to Bionicle because it also shows that lego would rather make a quick cash grab, rather than putting the effort into an actual good idea
>>8965898They cheat. I don't use system stuff myself, but I have idea how they are constructed because of Shadowgear's videos. He often talks about how he cuts pieces, forces a connection, uses a rubber band, and ETC.
>>8965917How is Bionicle good idea when they've pulled the plug on it twice already?
>>8965938Obvious bait, but I'll bite>G1 was cancelled because of shitty plastic and repetitive builds in the later years, and supposedly because of the story too>G2 was cancelled because it wasn't advertised at all and because it wasn't enough like the original series (not Tehnic enough, dog shit story, etc.)
>>8960719Cause they're bootleggers, not replicators anon
>>8965938As opposed to space, castle, and pirates that have had the plug pulled on them many more times?
>>8965955Sales absolutely slumped in the latter years of Bionicle, too. Understandably so, and likely related to your post's reasoning.
>>8960719It's much easier to copy existing stuff than to design your own
>>8965955this is mostly just speculation/opinion, anon
>>8965898For me it was just greebling for the longest time, but I'm strating to prefer it for hands and you can of course also build sturdy limbs out of System. If you wanna go purely System, you're gonna have to use snot and stuff, to reinforce your construction in different directions.You could also just use some technic bricks and then add greeble like small vents or whatever.>>8965918>everyone who uses System must cheat, because one guy on YouTube doesOr, you know, you use these neat pieces that connect between Technic and System.To add to that, try other brands, and you get more colours too. Isn't that fun?
>>8966206That's cheating too.
>>8965918>>8965898>how>they cheatNo? Only brainlets cut more than flex tube (which Lego has allowed in the past. I use system for fine details like hands, and weird cobstructions technic cant achieve. Its mainly using technic bricks / plates as a converter coupling to join the systems. Mixel joints were a godsend. Rubber bands are a cop-out. And tires should be used in absolute moderation. I get tgat this was probably bait, but wanted to show other anons you can do more than just technic on technic. In fact, none if my builds use "illegal techs"" outside of cutting flex tube and maybe a tire placed for texture here and there. I could give breakdowns, but that takes a lot of time.
>>8965918Dawn cheaats so fucking much it isn't even funny
>>8966127I know, I mostly based this on speculation and popular opinions in the fandom, but I think it mostly makes sense
REMINDER: We are now a quarter of the year through Bionicle's anniversary year, with literally zero acknowledgement from Lego while they continue to suck China's cock instead.>Bionicle bad>concentration camps and Chinese police gunning down civilians good
>>8966253Its no more cheating than using misprints. Misprints and prototype pieces are essentially bootlegs anyway. And technic bootlegs in particular can have better tolerances than actual lego now too. And good luck waiting fir lego to re-release or release any of these parts.>>8966487Dawns got bigger problems than cheating, like all the allegations against him. Find tge google doc on your own time, its funny shit.

>>8966665>Dawns got bigger problems than cheating, like all the allegations against him. Find tge google doc on your own time, its funny shit.I got kicked from his group among others cause they thought I was suspicious and had taken those screens (I didn't). Don't think he ever acted on what he said, just that he needs to check with a therapist before things get worse.
Wait fags get that up and arms about Bionicle MOCs not meeting their normal standards?Thank fuck I wasn't in this fanbase for years to deal with this shit.
>>8966948Is this your first time in /biog/? Back when TTV was doing those horrible cannon contest, people here would complain about the newer style of MOCing.
>>8966948>>8966852Do you find exposed pins like this acceptable in this context?
>>8966948You can set off Bionicle fans by:Painting partsCutting partsUsing 3D printed partsUsing non-Lego partsUsing CCBSNot using CCBSGreebling with system partsPutting boobs on your mocPutting dicks on your mocUsing illegal connectionsUsing rubber bandsUsing misprints or rare parts
>>8966948Just do like me and just build.Ocasionally people tell me what I can improve, and I think that's pretty sweet.Then others get mad because System, off brand, Metru torso, you name it. It's whatever, I'll put the figure on my shelf either way :^)
>>8966991To this day I have>painted parts>cut parts (and glued them)>used a 3D printed mask>used different brands>used ccbs>didn't use ccbs>greebled with System parts>used Nuva boobs>used illegal connections>used misprints and rare partsBut I'd never put dicks on my mocs like a degenerate. Or use rubber bands for that matter, absolutely degenerate.
>>8966728>>8966731>>8966853 Maybe stop joining tranny servers?
>>8966988Oh, that was just a prototype torso. I took a half-finished MOC, cobbled it together, and took the image. I eventually finished the thing but I don't have any pictures of that. Here's a colored version.
>>8967053So don't use D*scord at all?
>>8966991You forgot exposed pins, axles, bars, and balls/sockets. Also pic related
>>8966988It's not, but I'm not gonna sperg about it. For all I know it's either unfinished or I'll do the sane thing and just critique like civilly. If I wanted to sperg I'd go back to the Diecast thread.
>>8967003I can understand not using Lego branded stuff, but it's their choice not mine. Sure I don't want to do it and confuse myself on which one is the bootleg or not but again, completely personal preference.
>>8966652Keep coping faggot
>>8967053I don't have discordIt's just well known stereotype that a huge vocal chunk of discord users are trannies/tranny loversThat's it
>>8966991>Painting partsnever do this>Cutting partsnever do this>Using 3D printed partsit's fine>Using non-Lego partsI don't like it but as long as it doesn't damage pieces I don't care>Using CCBSthe pieces are just boring but in limited quantities they're fine>Not using CCBSalso fine>Greebling with system partsI personally don't like it because I don't like grebling for the sake of grebling and because system doesn't jive with the bonk aesthetic very much imo. Limited use is fine.>Putting boobs on your mocnever do this>Putting dicks on your mocnever do this>Using illegal connectionsnever do this>Using rubber bandsbasically never do this. Only exceptions are functions but nobody who mocs nowadays bothers with those because "but muh grebly messes">Using misprints or rare partsit's fine, just get jealous sometimes
>>8962625Lotfag here.The Manas were complete and working.Feels fucking good man.I just need to build Takua and Pewku to see if thats complete aswell.No platinum Hau with Hafu tho...
>>8967209I built the kino combiners with the sets I already owned.
>>8967043>cut parts (and glued them)>use rubber bands>absolutely degenerate.?????
>>8966991>Painting partsFine if it's a mask that isn't available in another color AND it doesn't look like shit. Painting any other parts is unnecessary.>Cutting partsBad, unless it's flex tubes which are meant to be cut anyway>Using 3D printed partsFine, better if they actually look GOOD. We're not quite at the point of 3D printing that perfectly replicates the look of official parts, but we're getting there>Using non-Lego partsSame as above, fine if they look good and match the aesthetic>Using CCBS>Not using CCBSIt's a system made to be compatible with technic parts so there's no reason not to use it if you want to.

>>8967117Oh I can keep distinguish between my Lego, Mega and other brands. I just don't care, I actively want to mix them for better colour variety. Like fuck I'm gonna use parts that Lego only produces in grey. Then I liked it so much I'm using coloured axles, pins and rare colours overall.
>>8967221I was being ironic, my n-word. The joke is that I put rubber bands on a level with dicks, not that I actually condemn rubber band. I just don't like using them.
So last thread an anon asked what good add-ons are for Stud.io for making Bionicle MOCs, and no one ever responded; and my curiosity has gotten me to want to ask the same question here since no one answered last time.
>>8967357it's p-word here, you newpiraker
>>8967399I swear it's always the Piraka ruining shit.
>>8967357Ah, fair enough. I still think you're a dum-dum for mutilating parts but I'll take the L for not understanding the joke.
>>8967399Fuck I keep forgetting>>8967445I get that, and people sometimes give me shit just assuming I cut pristine discontinued parts. Often they were already cracked, or still in production at that time, or not even lego to begin with. But as I said earlier, it's whatever.
>>8967525>ForgettingThat's worse than being a newpiraka. gtfo

Enough tranny talk. Have you ever created your own species/race? I did using these creatures heads. There basically Elites, but in HF/Bionicle.
>>8967877biog is full of faggots like you ace
>>8967941Sounds like you're a faggot to me.
>>8967992Personally I'm all about "my personal g3" and rewriting the lore, so I focus on minimizing the species that exist and fleshing them out more. Matoran, Vortixx, Skakdi, Makuta, Generic titan race (axonn, brutaka, tobduk, umbra, hydraxon, etc), Generic Toa-size race (Barraki all this race before mutations, Lariska, etc) Glatorian, Agori, and a couple others.
>>8968152Halo, I think.
>>8968152Elites from Halo. >>8968088One of my projects I'm working on is re-writing G2. I try to post my idea here but they often get ignored.
>>8967992I collect Tarduks.
>>8968158>Elites from Halo.Oh, yuck.
new bionicle game just dropped boys
>>8967053You will never be a ga-matoran
>>8968225post tard army
>>8968158Try as you may, G2 Gali will always have a dick.
>>8968843Is it because she was voiced by a guy in the 2015 online shorts? In The Journey to One she was voiced by a woman again.
>>8967773Associating kike commies, who murdered the best people of the country, devoured culture, wealth and history with russians?I knew burgerlandians are retarded, but damn.That's some new level.
>>8968088Absolutely based. TSO/Conjurer/Ancient/Tyrant belonging to the same species was a kind of odd but wise move on Greg/whoever suggested it to him's part. That should have been the course of action: G1 had too many species, some of which can be easily grouped together.But they did the exact opposite. Everytime a new non-Toa/Matoran/Turaga/Makuta/Rahkshi character appeared bam, a new species. Even the unmutated Barraki could've belonged to previously established species but nooo, let's invent six previously unheard-of "prime species".And let's not talk about the mess the Dark Hunter book caused.
>>8967992>Enough tranny talk. Haveat you!
>>8969169How come they never introduced the concept of characters rebuilding themselves (beyond the matoran) as a way to explain the dark hunters? It would be very in line with a bunch of rogues to modify themselves into all those strange forms.
>>8969216You try to assign powers and backstories to 20-something things, most of which were created by literal kids
>>8969218Literally just explain it as "The dark hunters modify themselves to achieve a variety of forms and abilites"
>>8969216Basically, Greg is a talentless hack.
>>8969216Shit I don't know anon. It's even established in the book that DHs get cybernetic augmentations when they join. Yet half of the book Dark Hunters's backstories boil down to "X used to be normal until Roodaka/Hordika venom/EP/Twitter mutated them and they became evil". I wanted the DHs to be cool pro assassins with their own code like the ones in the John Wick universe, and instead what we got were a bunch of deformed losers who are blackmailed into working for TSO.
On the note of species, what purpose did the Skakdi serve in the GSR?
>>8969230No to mention every other one was a new species never seen before of since
>>8969234Basically, they were supposed to be pretty normal folk, but Makuta fucked with them and they turned into nignogs
>>8969238What constitutes normal folk? Every species is supposed to serve a specific purpose within the GSR like cells in a body
>>8969238>>8969234I thought they were supposed to be foreign bodies.
>>8968724Not bait, I just think Halo sucks.
>>8969240They mostly dropped that aspect around 2004 or so with the introduction of the "inner world". In 01-03, most every type of species or race had some function tied to the GSR's workings and some were analogous to biological phenomena. After that, when they expanded the universe and began making up lots of new species and new islands, that angle diminished.I imagine Skakdi could have been like a liver, old, damaged or faulty machines were sent to their island and they separated the recyclable material from the junk so that new things could be created, as a callback to the old "everything is in flux" theme from MNOG. The Red Star dealt with reviving dead beings, Karzahni dealt with fixing badly functioning beings, and the Skakdi dealt with recycling non-living things. And like most things in the GSR, they didn't do their job properly and eventually turned bad due to the Makuta's tampering, waging a war over the loot they were given, damaging them further instead of repairing or recycling them. Maybe the factories from Xia used them as test subjects to test their products' durability, fueling the conflict between the Skakdi for their own benefit. But that's just some instant headcanon I came up with on the spot, I'm sure more imaginative anons could do better.
>>8969258Thanks for the new headcannon
>>8969258Perhaps, all these races are just artificial recreation of lifeforms Mata Nui encountered on different planets?And he just took their DNA and created subspecies inside of him, and also making protodermis one of their bodily components, as without it they wouldn't be able to exist normally. Some sort of biomechanization on a cellular level.
>>8969258That's interesting. Just a question: What are the Vortixx and other weapon creators according to you? Maybe lymphatic system?
>>8969146What all am I looking at here?
>>8969341Looks like amalgamation of 2004 story line, but I don't know who the one with Master Gali mask in the middle is.
>>8969330Not bad, but it hurts my autism that Jaller and Takua are in Mctoran form, as opposed to 03 Matoran
>>8969146I want to like this, but Ragn*rok is such a shit movie that I hope anyone who even slightly contributed to its creation should die in great pain.
>>8969330Jeet truly is the most based artist out there. Draws Bionicle and fat chicks in the most appealing ways.
Who's dick do I have to suck to get a Nuju canister? I need the cap.
>>8969516I'd cream my fucking pants if there was an official crossover product. I LOVED this speedboy and his fire friend.
>>8969491>just imagineTHE SMELL!
>>8969526I hate you
>>8969342Tuyet I think with the Nui Stone.
>>8969516Oh man that ax looks nice. Wouldn't mind more crossovers like this. Let's see:>Torch/Tahu>Ski/Kopaka>Sub/Gali>Granite/Pohatu>Electro/...Onua?
>>8969672Energy would definitely make the most sense for Onua since it fits the colors and his mask already exists in purple.
>>8969516Looks cool. Now the question is, can it fit in the Throwbot’s carrying case?
So I figured I finally have enough bright pink to build a figure with it as primary colour.I tried an upper torso from mainly System to help get enough bright pink, now it looks like ass.The head also sucks ass, because I never build any custom ones. Anyone got advice there? Is there some pattern to go off of or is it gonna be just a shit fest of snot trial and error?Now I'm back to adding more pink shit to my next order in order to build a technic torso. Idk why I thought rare colours are fun.
>>8968476holy shit, mind sharing the options for that?
>>8960719>Masters Of Disasterwhere to cop?
>>8969923Gotcha covered, friend.Not the creator, but I'm going to try my hand on the others later on.
>>8970000I think the same guy did Ignika and Mata Nui too, I'll see if I can find them.
>>8970000Is he modding the game, or does the game let you design your own masks for your characters?
>>8970000>>8970095Yeah same guy. I'd go nuts to play the whole game with Bionicle guys for every character.>>8970140The new Miitopia on switch has an overhauled Mii making system, people are making insane shit with it that completely redefine what it means to make a mii
>>8960786I don't have a photo because I've long since disassembled this guy and the chinese bootleg pieces he was made of have most likely disintegrated by now but here's an artistic depiction of what my first moc looked like, his name was "bad villain" and he fought the toa metru by summoning giant monsters, which were more or less just random heaps of limbs and weapons slapped together
>>8970212I don't like him. However, your art seems promising. Suggestion: make a webcomic about biomechanical hoohah whatever and make it in your style. I think it would be fun.
>>8969516Neat.>>8969672>Sub/GaliHmm, I see Gali as being one of those kinds of doms that would be rather loving and kind while still being demanding and cheeky, making your penis and heart get an erection. A care-boner.Oh, wait, you meant...
>>8969342It is Tuyet
>>8964376Damn, I really like the way that blue Kakama Nuva looks.
Had that dream again, boys>was in a goodwill or something. corner of a shelf had baggies of loose parts and canisters of sets>found complete nokama, onua, and onua nuva >got so excited that i woke upwhat is this pain in my chest?
>>8970273Stop posting this cringe shitBut also continue
>>8970273You cheeky shit. I'd post that one fan-art of Gali with the ass, but either way. You're probably onto something there.
>>8969815>tmw your bonkle looks more like a 50 usd Technic set
Selling this mask lot, email me if interested, don’t want to sell on eBay due to fees and I don’t know how to use bricklink, US only
>>8970500Why, because it looks unfinished, has no functionality and a few parts in colours that don't belong? :^)and system, yeah, I got it
>>8960786My first self-MOC was essentially a Stormer 3.0 with Metus' head and feet with Pohatu Nuva's foot things. He also had a gem below his chest armor. Don't know about the weapons anymore, probably a Thornax launcher and some melee weapon.Should I make a new self-MOC? Do people still do that?
>>8970666Yes. I have multiple self-MOCs, one for each setting.
Well, /biog/? Did you make the cut?
>>8970666I had a good time making some "self" mocs for my close friends. It was fun trying to build different body types and keep everything consistent.

we posting MOCs still? reposting my old toa nui
>>8970855wtf thats way cooler than the official designs. And it's not using extra parts?
>>8970463>>8970496You got a case of the penis and heart-boner combo, huh?
>>8970855Looks badass. Out of curiosity, why'd you go with the Pakari for its mask?
>>8970855That is really cool, anon. Though a golden Hau would make a really good mask to tie it together.
>>8971289>>8971318not that anon but the pakari is definitely the most "bionicle" mask in existence. Even Takua wore it.
>>8971357Wouldn't the Hau be a better contender for "most Bionicle mask"? It's got a lot more focus than any other mask, except maybe the Avohkii or Ignika. It was used in so much advertising, it was Tahu's main mask (and he was basically the main hero of the story), Makuta used it as his mask when he took Matoran form, and it even was used to symbolize Mata Nui himself.
>>8971368Shit opinions like "most Bionicle mask" are what made me despise it.
>>8970677>Don't be racist>Don't be britishWho are these dummies anyway?
>>8971785seething brit lmao
>>8971828I'm not british. So who are these guys? What do they have to offer in return?
>>8970677>Must not be racist or antisemitic>Must not get offended over stuff said on the internetAlso the no britbong rule I get it, but why that beef against protector masks?
>>8970964Nope, nothing extra.>>8971289Like the other anon replying to you said, it feels the most bionicle. Also lets the colour blocking work - each limb is a colour distinct colour, so a black mask lets it not feel lopsided.
>>8970711Well I'm both sorry for you and happy for you. May your findings be fruitful for you, because lawdy he's made some good stuff.
>>8971742they should have kept rereleasing the hau every year and maybe other old masks
>>8967217fuck the bohrok combiners were so sick, I had the Japanese Nuhvak/Kohrak combiner on my desk at work for months. Not seen a couple of the others here though; the turtle shit on the top left and Pahrak abomination at the bottom are pretty sick.
>>8960786>>8970775Well either way, here we are. Always feed your weird centaur thing his leafy greens. He was one of several beasties babby me made from bits out of one of those big parts barrels, which seemed to have an inordinate number of brown parts. Also a fuckton of Rahkshi feet and Metrucop heads.
The team’s coming along nicely. One more to go
>>8972147Pretty based anon
>>8971742I mean, the Hau was literally the face of the franchise for several years. I'm sorry your metric for what is good boils down to whatever isn't the most popular thing.Disregarding something because it's popular is just as fallacious as holding it up because it's popular.Of course, the Hau doesn't represent Bionicle because it's popular. It represents the franchise because it was literally used by Lego as the franchise's emblem and the mask of its lead hero, slumbering god (yes, the Hau represented Mata Nui as far back as 2001 - see the story stones and MoL gate), and villain.It also happens to look really cool.
Where can I get bionicle for cheep in the middle eastAnd please don't respond with bricklinkI will also acpect sites that sell bootlegs
>>8972147This looks a lot like an Artakha Bull. Do you remember if you were inspired by that MOC, or is this just a coincidence?
>>8972416Hadith states that the Prophet (praise be upon him) obtained his Bionicle through Jihad.
>>8972416Why can't you use bricklink? I'm sure you can find a store that ships to you.
>>8972432You know, the box I dug this guy out of DID have an Onewa torso in it. Centaur dude'sarms and scythe were missing when I found him and I had to rebuild them real for the photo, so while I can't say I remember a particular inspiration you might just be right. Thanks for the catch, anon, I'll have to have a look at that build.
>>8972207Not a fan of the He-Man and the RedGrimReaper
>>8972514>>8972207Others do look nice by the way
>>8972207is that toa of fire shitting flames?
>>8972516TY>>8972545I attempted a jetpack
>>8972373I don't hate the Hau because it's popular, I hate it because the majority of fandom (mosty the nostalgia posers) acts like it's the only Kanohi that exist (along with Pakari). Fuck, Miru Nuva, Kaukau nuva, great komau, great ruru, Jaller's Arthron or even the fucking Iden are far better looking kanohi then the Hau. Arthron is the most Bionicle mask, since it perfectly combines the organic and mechanical elementals of Bionicle and not the bland Hau. The only argument the Haufags have is 'muh iconic'.
>>8972641Pretty shit take overall but I do like the Arthron. It has a pretty distinctly crablike look though which is why I wouldn't choose it to represent bionicle
>>8972470I'm not gonna pay 89$ for toys that used to cost 5$
>>8972664Idk which particular set you're looking at but you're not likely to get a better price anywhere else lmao. All you can do is hope you get lucky on ebay or local classifieds
>>8972681Where can I find bootlegs of g1 stuff besides russia
>>8972641you immediately lost all credibility when you said that the Miru and Kaukau Nuva look better
>>8972772Not him, but what's wrong with Miru?
>>8972780I think he meant Miru Nuva,
>>8972723I don't buy bootlegs so idk. I've never seen bootlegs for anything earlier than 2006 and it's only been canister sets
>>8972780The Miru is a dumb mask
>>8972661Not the same anon but I always thought it looks like a samurai helmet/mask. Especially the crescent moon shaped horns. There's not really another mask like it.
>>8972641Your taste in masks is abysmal but I don't necessarily disagree with all you're saying.
>>8972780>>8972785yeah I meant the Nuva, regular Miru is cool
>>8972821Only because it's attached to a dumb Toa.
>>8972827It definitely has samurai/sentai vibes. Just a shame we never got it (or any of the Mahri masks) in alternate colors
>>8972970Lego really dropped the ball not keeping mask packs. They could have easily capitalized on the mystery bag/lootbox/whatever craze and made tons of money.
>>8972997You can bet if they ever do G3 they'll lean into that. It can only go better than Vidyo is.
Been working away as making some Miis. Lemme know if anyone are able to improve on the designs or if you have your own to share
>>8960222Will we meet Matoro in Heaven?
>>8973146These look incredible. I'm impressed with how accurate they are.But I'm curious to know, how do they look from other angles, or when the Mii is doing different expressions? I know in past games, Mii face designs tend to fall apart if not viewed from the front with a neutral expression. Do the ones in this game hold up better?
>>8972641It is iconic because Lego made it so. It was in almost every single promo material in the early years, in the comics was made into a symbol of the great spirit, was featured in the Mata Nui rising when the Kini-Nui collapses and in the last wave that ended G1 as promo material, again, not to forget the remake of the original Tahu. The Avohkii comes close to having the same prominence, and would had maybe even had if the original plans had followed trough since Takanuva was supposed to play a big part on Spherus Magna's aftermath, which would had made him probably more iconic than Tahu.You can hate it but the idea of the Hau being iconic was manufactured and propagated by Lego, not the actual fandom.
Almost spit out my drink when this popped up cause it was just so unexpected.
>>8973382What decks would Tahu and Iruini play?Burning Abyss and Gusto?
>>8972641I unironically really like the Hau Mata. But you're my Piraka for mentioning the Great Ruru. That's my all time favourite and I wish the Metru had mask packs for just that reason.
>>8973484What hurt 04 and 05 was that there was no prominent mask to wrap them around, Vahi wasn't a thing in promotional material really either. In sense this took the spotlight away from it just being about Vakama and more of the metru/hordika in general as opposed to 01 that was symbolized by Hau, 02 by Hau Nuva and 03 by Avohkii, 06, 07, 08 and 09 all by Ignika, altho by 06 Ignika was yet to have a form really and was more of just an idea.
>>8973499>No mask pack with a super hard to pull black Ignika
>>8973499Interesting point, I never really looked at masks that way.I suppose for '04 it could have been Lhikan's Hau, no idea for '05 tho.
>>8973499I think the Ignika not having a single solid form for 2 years really helped add to the mysticism of the mask
>>8973510>no black Ignika whatsoever
Current state of my Kakama girls.I haven't done any changes to the teal one yet, I'll order parts from GoBricks soon and see if their teal fits, then do changes to the build. Red needs changes too. The noova booba got stale quicker and worse than I initially ecpected, especially on those two.With three more colours to go, I'll either figure out a design to integrate them into the torso better or just do something else entirely.Also I think insisting on that ball joint mid torso just doesn't always work out, mistakes were made.I somewhat cleaned up the white one with fitting most pins and axles to the colour scheme. Not sure if I should remove the last bits of grey and silver, but otherwise I'm happy with that one./blog
>>8973471Tahu seems more like a fire king player.
>>8973589but Vakama's the one that's into anthro
>>8973042>the extra masks are AR objects that show up when you scan your set's mask
>>8973604Hordika having no tails is such a missed opportunity
>>8973724I wonder why they decided not to give them tails? Just for parts count?
>>8973776Possibly, the choice of arms was probably due to that too.
>>8973724>>8973776>>8973860Imagine Roodaka and/or Sidorak having a tail
>>8973671Just print a QR code type affair into the back of the mask, like how the G1 masks had codes for use with the CDs, and when you scan it with the BONKLE REBORN app it brings up a pokedex page with the mask's stats and lore and its most notable wearer. Easy AR integration to keep the suits happy and a loredump source that will interest both kids and oldfags alike.[spoiler]Oh and I guess it can unlock an instagram filter to make your face look like the scanned mask for those sweet sweet instagram points[/spoiler]
>>8973471Just going by the fire + swords angle, Infernoble Knights would make sense for Tahu (or Flame Swordsman if you want to be retro and useless). But I cast my vote for Mathmech, because their big boss happens to be a fiery dude who charges in and OTKs undaunted by any danger.And yeah, Gusto for Iruini seems about right. Not like there's that much to choose from in the wind attribute.
Why is it so hard to find the fucking Bohrok hangers? Took an age to find them on Bricklink because they're not linked from either the set or the box and even then the stores selling them are so spread out.Wish sellers would just sell the complete set WITH the hanger.
>>8974120You know, these little things? You'd use them to hang up the Bohrok ball in the capsule.
>>8974130I wonder how many of these have ended up in landfills along with the Bohrok canisters. Think it's less or more than the plastic Piraka masks?
>>8974137>Think it's less or more than the plastic Piraka masks?still don't know the point of those aside from the pointless 'try me' function
>>8974139It's mostly for that while being a fun collectable too, but I've seen people use them for mocs also.
>>8974140>but I've seen people use them for mocs alsooh, that's cool
>>8973307Everything aside from the eyes are hidden heind a mask, so the only thing that moves during expressions is the eyes. The anrgy and sad expressions rotate the eyes up or down which does clip through the mask, but it's usually pretty consistent. As for other angles, they're mii faces, so they look completey flat from other angles - there's not much you can do there unfortunately
>>8974130huhi never had the bohrok so i didn't know about those
>>8974257how tf do you not own a single Bohrok my guy
>>8974264this theme is older than me
>>8974294This is an 18+ site, gtfo kid.
>>8974314Realistically he could've been born in 2003 and still be old enough.
>>8974318Are you shitting me it's been that long?
>>8974319Stars are now older than Mata were when Stars were released
Got my first Piraka and Barraki today. I thought I'd like the Barraki more and while the designs are definitely cooler, the Piraka are so much better play-wise.
Is it possibile to paint the Felnas? I saw someone successfully paint Inika masks, and the Felnas feels like it's made of the same hard rubber material.
>>8974257I'm sorry for you anon.
>>8974320Stop it I don't want to think about my distorted conception of time
>>8974490If you prime it properly, sure why not.
>>8974551Time to collect the great disks, Anon.

Meet your friendly neighbourhood Bo-Matoran! I don't have a name for her yet. Might still do some monor design changes and colour fixes, but I kinda had to get her done today.>>8974844I'm not so sure about them anymore, Anon.
>>8974960Why the fuck isn't he wearing a kakama?
>>8974994Have you seen the prices for turquoise Kakama recently?
>>8974994It's a gril, I don't care about element-gender restrictions anymore. She's disconnected from my Kakama crew.>>8975008I have built a figure for the teal one, though it needs some fixing. Merely started on the blue one.
>>8974960Based, a second Bo-Matoran in the thread.
>>8974960I always hated blue and green as bo-matoran colors. Brown and green makes way more sense.
>>8975101That's what I always used for mine when I was making a nature toa as a kid. Lewa's body and feet, Pohatu's limbs. Nice and earthy color scheme.
>>8975101And I think that's a good idea. It was actually the plan, but turned out I don't have enought parts. Tried bright pink next, but I'd have to rip my bright pink figure apart before it's finished.So I was left with the old colour combo, because the deadline was this week. It's for a group chat where we have a topic every week and make something out of it. Most people draw, I build. Gives me a neat challenge every week, but ordering parts for it is never an option.
>>8974319I was born the day after 9/11, the franchise is practically the same age as me. Didnt get into the series til 2007, tho technically i found out about it during 2006 but never got any sets back then cuz it was still a new concept for me (regret it to this day).Still, picking up the older sets feels good, man.
>>8973587>red one wearing heels is still the smaller four "fully grown" onesPakarilets when will they ever learn
>>8974319>>8974320>Mask of Light is older than the first Transformers movie was in 2003>Babies born when G2 started are old enough to be in primary school>Most kids whose first contact with Bionicle was Stars or Glatorian are able to vote, unless American>Those who grew up with HF instead are in their teenage years now>JtO's last episodes were published roughly 4 years and 9 months ago, G2's announcement at NYCC was 4 years and 6 months after the formal ending of G1 with All that Glitters: Rebirth. >With the exception that this time there has been no leaks going on for weeks not even a single mention of the IP from LEGO.Time flies fast when you're having fun they say...but if that's true, why are we just suffering?
>>8975547I don't get what you're saying.When I flatten the heels red is still taller than white.And even if red was the shortest, why would that mean no heels allowed?>PakariAm I just giving you a free (you) at this point?And by the way, the fully grown are "Toa". The small are called "Matoran" :^)
>>8975638I had the big dumb when writing the post so I explained it badly. But yeah the joke went to the shitter because I thought that by flattening the heels she was shorter than white>Pakari>Am I just giving you a free (you) at this point?No you're just giving me further proof that my brain was working so badly for many reasons I mixed the name of the masks. Also didn't know they were supposed to be Toa rather than just Kakama girls so there is also that.Stuff like this is why people must respect sleep schedules.
>>8975619>There are people old enough by now to unironically like prequels
>>8975651The heel is a lift by just 1 unit.I never mentioned they are Toa prior, it was a joke at your expense. They will be a Toa team, basically QRF because mask of speed. The little blue one is Naho and will later join the Mangai, Kakama team not canon of course.>sleep schedulesI get that. Mine is broken too, so I don't blame you at all.
>>8975657>There are people old enough to unironically like the sequelsOh wait, nobody but the smoothbrain reylofags among other filth in human form liked those and most were already in their late teenage years at youngest when they came out>Ib4 I just like the OTThen you are either just a boomer on the verge of your 50s ,a youngster with the mentality of one or someone who fell for RLM shit opinions. And honestly idk which one of the three options is worse
>>8975703at least it's not a toilet this time
>>8975680The prequels and sequels are both bad. The difference is that while the sequels are a rehashed OT fanfiction, the prequels at least brought a lot of cool designs and ideas that were expanded into other media. But none of this has anything to do with bionicle
>>8975703Bricklink is actually the best place. Sorry
>>8974490>I saw someone successfully paint Inika masksMight you post them? I'm curious.

>>8973510>>8973546What's the story behind the black ignika?
>>8974319>Anyone born before 1990 is now older than 30
>>8977064Iirc the Ignika had three phases, each one would simbolize how much time the MU had left. - Golden is its normal state, meaning everything is okay, at least according the Kanohi- Silver means danger, I think the mask was being damaged and feared for its own existence. The color means its now a timebomb preparing to suck all life from every being within the MU- Black is doom itself, means the time is up and the mask is ready to kill all its inhabitantsI like we got the silver and pearl gold Ignikas but I'm salty a black one recolor was never made.
