Previous: >>8960222People seem to had fun posting old MOCs last thread so let's continue. This was my first attempt a female.
>>8976196Based monoboob chad.>>8976288Nice hat. I'm going to steal one of his kneepads for my toa's missing ass cheek.Also, yo yo Piraka. New rip just dropped.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1B0n-mKYnk
my god, it's been well over a decade since I built these models
>>8976292That's beautiful>>8976462Lel, i can the song
You wake up in a timeline that actually isn't awful and they're making a brand new Bionicle animated series - it will be a subtle adaptation of G1 with creative liberties taken in terms of the plot to keep things fresh and not a straight adaptation, and you are the one who gets to choose which artist will inspire the show's artstyle. Who do you pick?Me personally, I would go for either Genndy Tartakovsky or Derrick Wyatt.
>>8976468>>8976470>>8976476who has the full comic
>>8975834I can't find the picture with multiple masks, but here's one. I remember a red Kadin too. They're all made by bobthedoctor27, who paints a lot of masks for his MOCs. His dark blue and dark red are very similar to Lego.>>8974704I see, thanks
i have been going down a bionicle rabbit hole lately watching behind the scenes stuff like the movie extras and reading interviews and would like to know more about the development side of things, anybody got interesting trivia or stuff i should watch/read?
>>8976789>triviaRemember in the comics how Zaktan's body was composed of microscopic Rahi called protodites? This is seemingly referenced in Bionicle Heroes DS. During the Zaktan fight he'll turn into a sort of green mist after taking enough damage.
>>8976834I remember it being referenced in the VNOG too
>>8976789Mister N's Drop a Brick blog at>drop-a-brick.blogspot.com/2019/09/mnog-chronicle-prologue.html?m=1is a treasure trove of easily-digestible early Bionicle. Be sure to read the first six chapters that have been translated into English, and if you've got a browser with automatic translation functionality, I recommend continuing on to Mister N's VK blog (which is in his native Russian). Also attached in the prologue is a link to an "Early and Unused Story Concepts" document, which is also worth a read.
>>8976789You have checked Faber Files right? Or this document? It's about the early story plans that changed during development, especially the biggest changes and retcons that happened in 2001 around the time of the Maori controversy.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NvpUPA8aOulNvSMq4kpX82bDbugJ2mbOL6cVfMXPNoc/editThere's that recent YouTube interview with the Creative Capers directors and producer, which goes into detail on how the movies got made and how Lego worked from the inside. They showed some interest in releasing an art book or making a documentary about the development of the films, if they could get Lego's approval. The directors' audio commentary for Mask of Light isn't too heavy with info but it's got some neat trivia if you can listen to it.There's this nice fan retrospective on how MNOG was made too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmHmFmPM5Hk
>>8976467I'd honestly just pick a safe and obvious choice, and go with the style of the Ghost ads, with some inspiration from the Miramax movies, especially Web of Shadows.But for scene
>>8976908>But for sceneI may as well finish this sentence if I accidentally posted it. For scenes where characters explain legends or see visions, I'd go more surreal and experimental with the visuals, rather than reuse the old "stones in a sandpit" concept.
>>8976198>last thread still on page 8I knew we should've stayed with that thread for a bit longer.
>>8976462Someone needs to make a webm and green-screen the character into the footage.
>Be in middle school>Would always change the desktop backgrounds to pic related
>>8977089Keetongu Rangers, go!
>>8976196Your first attempt went a lot more swimmingly than mine.
>>8977111>didney wars shitMan, you're not kidding. What a fucking soiboi.
>>8976520I would kill for this.
>>8977116Shut up. I know disney Star Wars is aids. I just wanted the figures for the parts. The Phasma one had really cool capes.
>>8976196More Mocs is always good. Heres what I just finished. Its fucking criminal how expensive misprints are. And this one came with a small dent in it. A bit pissed, but it was the last one in North America.>>8976468Someone needs to do an imgur of all them. Mainly to curb spam and make it easier to find the rare ones.>>8976834>>8976789Trivia: In Bionicle Heroes DS, the Frost beetle was added as a special exclusive enemy. For years, mentioning it on BZPower could get you yelled at by mods because they denied it being there.
>>8977355>those bootleg armsRobot Invincibility?
>>8976196>old MOCsI contributed last thread, but I'll add another now. I'm not sure when I made this guy, but it must have been at least 5 years ago. Probably closer to 10.I gave him multiple weapons that can all be stored on him or removed, including this sort of chakram thing with a representation of the Solis Magna system on it.
>>8977452And here's another image with some weapons swapped around. The thing on his right arm combines with his "wings" to make a gun, because guns are fun.I also remember coming up with some kind of basic backstory for him. I think he was supposed to be a Great Being who disguised himself and entered the GSR to pursue Velika, but I don't remember any more than that.
>>8977355>For years, mentioning it on BZPower could get you yelled at by mods because they denied it being therelmao wtf
>>8977599Power tripping autists never want to admit being wrong.
More old MOCs? Well here's another I threw together back when G2 was starting up.
>>8977355>mentioning it on BZPower could get you yelled at by mods because they denied it being there.Even if you provided photographic evidence?
>>8977698>>8977599Im actually working on revamping the Frost Beetle atm. And Im trying to find a proper model of it from that game. And discussion of it actually got worse after video evidence came out, since, YES, the mods were salty.
>>8977355Judging by the background you throw an unreasonable amount of money at Vidiyo, why would you complain about misprints then? Just buy less Vidiyo dude.
>>8977355And here I thought me buying 10 of these lgbt fortnite fig blindboxes was bad. Telling you this is not something you should invest in. The next wave of blindboxes will have only few unique tiles, rest are repeats of wave 1. (That is if the product images are correct) Or maybe you found some beatboxes super cheap, in that case more power to you.
>>8976887Not him, but thanks for the vid. MNOG was and still remains a fucking anomaly to me, that a Flash game could be that good. Makes me want to try making my own game again
>>8977786>>8977793Oh no, I only buy the blindbags, beatboxes are a scam. My moc group and I are pooling Vidiyo pieces to make a music store. And I was more complaining that the misprint had small dents in it, and the guy hiked the price 20$ over every other one despite that.
>>8977990>music storeOnly resonable explanation, your spending may be excused.>dented misprintWell that sucks, I wouldn't wanna pay regular misprint price for that either.
Does anyone have that photo of that figure with water droplets on it? I have no idea how to find it.
>>8978089Fairly minor, but the fact its still there on something I paid 80$ for is annoying. The face is the first thing you notice on a build.
Was it here that someone posted a matoran wearing a kaukau, and it had cut out paper eyes inside to make it emote
>>8978288Do you have pics of her? She was really cool
>>8978361i'm drunk this is all you get sorry
>>897815380$ us? Has it really become that bad? I remember paying 20€ for obe of those.
>>8978254I had one of his pics saved. Hiika is the Matoran's name.
>>8978254>>8978361>>8978693I love Hiika. She’s a certified QT
>>8978711She really is. I even built my own Ta version of her. Thinking of maybe adding a Ko version, depending on what parts I get and got. It's overall cute size, bit smaller than my Metru Matoran and it challanges me more to a custom build which is cool.
>>8978693>>8978711My stupid ass kept mistaking her for Hali.
>>8978737Probably because of the flower that she wears.
>>8978936You’re welcome. I have some more pic of that lil’ cutie too. Here’s an image of a CGI model someone made of her.
I actually quite dig cute matoran. All my Metru ones look more serious. I only have pic rel and a Ta-Hiika that aren't Metru.
>>8978153How is that mata head connected?
You made me go through my old folders. Have this female bionicle.
Don't mind me, just posting upright Ghekula
>>8979561That's not Lynna, although it might be "inspired by".
>>8979501>rahkshihead nuvaboob femmocgross
One more village done, two to go. In case you're wondering why the Komau is a rainbow stick figure, that's me ca 2014 attempting to depict mind control. I may need to sit down and redo some of these images sooner or later.https://bye-project.xyz/releases/release-carvers-of-po-korohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voX0phw1jjA
>it's been 8 months since I worked on my Matoro cosplayDepression is a bitch. Going to try to finish it by the whole 8/10 day shit though, need to power through.Would like to do some more MOCs in the meantime. Might finally tear apart the 01 rahi and make good use of their parts.>>8977793Man I really need to get some HF figs. I freaking love how they look, would look good with some Exo-Force robots.Do they use normal minifig heads under the helmets?
>>8980306Indeed they do
Greetings from the sun-drenched tropical paradise of the Bo-Matoran! Today's tohunga/rahi pair is some sort of bug with a drill and a hunter dude.
>>8980653excellent, anonbo-matoran are based, simple as
Did a somewhat realistic visorak revamp for fun. Kinda challenging considering there aren't many real insects that launch discs from their back so I had to get creative in how that would work.
>>8980850Very very cool
>>8980826But they can never leaf well enough alone.>>8980850Great drawing, anon. Now show us what a biological Rhotuka looks like.
>>8980850Nice, anon. This is exceptional art for a spur of the moment concept piece, do you post anywhere else?
>>8980850Jesus fucking Christ, I'd rather eat a gun before facing one of those aberrations.
>>8981079Now you know what Matoran and Toa feel like seeing one of those things.
>>8980850I'm not really seeing Visorak, but it looks cool
>>8980850now draw a realistic Keetongu and Roodaka
Found a box full of my old bionicles in the garage. Among them was this giga nigga. Hopefully I can restore him to his former glory
>>8980850Those fucking eyes though. I hate it, well done.
>>8979501Thanks. Saved. Got more?
>>8980885I actually have no idea how to pull that off. I cheated by having the spike spin in the air so the venom strands spinning would look like a disc in high-speed.>>8981394I hope I got some of the shapes similar enough that it would at least remind you of a visorak?>>8981400Now that's an idea...>>8981059Artstation is americannightmare
Posting the only old moc I still have around
>>8981607I like it. Post the ones in the background too.
>>8981632Not mocs, just some Dank Hunters I own
>>8981607he pooped green
>>8981988Sometimes you just gotta pinch a loaf
Alright, aside from the Sand Tarakava and the Kraatu, do we have any Bionicle sets that were designed but never released?
>>8977111Nice, and nice trips, though if I were you I'd look into other methods for boobs, hopefully they could look as nice.
>>8982293>KraatuI doubt it counts as it was more of a prototype but you could consider the "minifig scale" Metru Build Keetongu from an early Tower of Toa-esq set
>>8976196think this was my first attempt
>>8976196This family will be murdered to death by me.
>>8981653>Guardian, Devastator, and LurkerPatrician taste, anon.
Anyone know if there are scans of the wrappers on the Toa Mata canisters out there? I want to try shopping a custom one for a moc but I can't seem to find any images of it.
>>8982717You could probably just ask someone. I've thrown all mine away, wish I had kept the mata canisters tho.
>>8982718Neat ideas all over. Can we see more of the vehicle?
Some eldritchan horror shit here
The team is complete
>>8982893those takanuva shoulder armors go for like 10 dollars each on bl now :(
>>8982941I have three silvers and a see through one tooWould trade em all for mask pack kanohi
Anyone know the odds of getting an infected hau or other rare masks in a mask pack?
>>8982893There's something nostalgic about mocs only made with pre-hero factory parts
>>8983090DAMN BOI HE THICC
>>8983090Looks like SMT IV:A's Odin lol
We postin' mocs with nuva boobs?
>>8983090I'm not gonna rant and complain but this moc is a good example of a problem I have with a lot of mocs, being they often don't have a well-defined silhouette and seem like a blob of parts to people who can't pick apart individual pieces just by looking. My wife for example will often be confused by mocs I show her until I point out where everything is on a given piece, including heads, limbs, orientation, etc. I didn't really notice this as an issue until she got interested in my hobby and asking questions like that, so now I like to keep it in mind when designing.
>>8983216It uses too much white is the problem I think. Where one part ends and the next begins is not clearly delineated.
>>8982941I know, it sucks. I have a complete Takanuva from my childhood except for one shoulder piece that I can't find anywhere, and I really don't want to spend so much money to replace a single lost piece.On the bright side, I do have enough pieces to give him complete armor in silver, until I can find the missing piece to give him his true armor back.>>8982975See-through Nuva shoulder armor? I didn't know that existed. Bricklink doesn't mention a transparent version of that piece.
>>8983240>I have a complete Takanuva from my childhood except for one shoulder pieceMe too. It's the last piece I need to finish my Toa of Jungle, but I can't find the damn thing. I've never ordered parts before and damned if I'm going to start now, but Christ if I'm not tempted.
>>8983240Oh, I thought you meant the masks I was using as shoulder armor
>>8981503What were you on as a child? how much meds did it take you to control that autism anon?
>>8983216So much this, while unfortunately I ain't got a wife, it's very apparent in even people's mocs who can moc decently that almost always the colorblocking and silhoutte are still wack. This is honestly a fault with some of the set designs themselves even. I only understood later what my now gone gramps meant when he said they all looked like jumbled mess bugs and he was a car mechanic.
>>8981503The ultimate form of schizophrenia.
>>8983338Nothing, maybe that's why
>>8983364He got dick pincers
>>8982893while I'm not sure I'd personally enjoy several of these, I gotta say anon, they look pretty nice as a group. cool aesthetics.
>>8981503This looks pretty sick, actually. Imagine a horror movie with this thing shambling after you; I'm not being facetious btw, I'm serious, it looks rad as fuck. I'd draw it if I had a working PC for drawan'.
>>8983240I wonder, not counting the mask which only comes in shades of silver, but are there enough pieces out there to give Takanuva gunmetal armor?
>>8983592Bionicle - Directed by Junjo Ito
>>8979094Thanks and saved. This isn’t the exact image, but I do enjoy all pictures of the figures amongst natural environments or elements.
>>8983600The original Makuta set has the Nuva chestplate and pauldron in gunmetal.
>>8983632And out of curiosity, I dug out those pieces and tried them on my Takanuva, with the sparkly mask because the gold and silver wouldn't work.I prefer the gold and silver over this armor set, personally, and it definitely needs a gunmetal mask to complete the look.
>>8983670twilight takanuva's mask is stupid huge but would 100% be something I'd like to see on that
>Old MOCs EditionMan a few years back I did that thing where I busted out my childhood parts bin, organized it and rebuilt all the sets I had. I had a good few childhood MOCs knocking around in there still together, I can't believe I didn't think to take a picture of even a single one before dismantling them all.
>>8983838tis the transient nature of bionicle
>>8983029What’s this a reference to?
>>8982717You can maybe check Biosector01 (one of the Bionicle Wikis). It has some very extensive image galleries. Maybe just check whatever character you’re looking for, then go you said characters gallery and see if there’s any scans of their canister art. They also at times have some VERY high quality images, even of the early year sets. As well as translucent layer PNGs at times.
>>8983107There are actually a few CCBS parts, bones, and shells in that image.
>>8982893No offense anon but these look like shit
A few more of the bionigles I found. I swear I've seen that yellow one's missing foot somewhere
>>8983995The two golden dudes and the rhino are worth pretty penny these days. Nice lot.
>>8982893Love the Toa of Plasma, not a big fan of CCBS though, but still cool
>>8983029What's he saying?
>>8982717I think the BioMedia Project recently came upon numerous raw PSDs of various g1 box art and promotional images, which include layers for the sets, background and foreground rendered objects and effects.
>>8983216Agreed, for some people who don't play with bonkels, figuring out what is a limb or what is a head can be difficult when you got moc with loads of chunks like>>8983090
>>8983997Oh rly? I'm not too fussed on the value but it's nice to know. I just wanna make some niggas
>>8980306Is there much progress in it? Pretty interested in how it turns out and the how did you fit the pieces because I'm kinda interested in making something at some point as well.Hope you can make it in time. Shit can be very time consuming but depending on your craftiness and knowledge you may be able to pull it off.
>>8983029>"Think Mata Nui, think! Why would Macku have a plush of Hewkii in her hut if it wasn't for love?!"
>>8983995>Piraka detectedYO YO PIRAKA
we know the olmak fits on the toa mata, and it's the best thing since sliced tuyetbut does it fit on mctoran/tohunga?
>>8984203that's fucking gorgeous thank you
I remember I used to make elephants. They looked really cool. Forgot how to do it and the Bionicle stuff is at my parents home
Matoran posting? Based
>>8984089B-but... love isn't canon!
>>8984203>where do you work out?>at the library
>>8983670If only we got a set of nuva armor in the sparkly color
>>8984516That would've been really cool
>>8983624I've got more of them because I collect them too. Can you be more specific about the image/model?
>>8984359with the exception of the top left, these look like they came right out of Karzahni's asshole
>>8984359After being rejected by Nokama, Vhisola attempted to commit sudoku. She survived despite having a shattered body (and soul) and was transported to Karzahni to "repair". This is why we didn't see Vhisola in MNOG.
>>8984564Ackchually bottom right is a Nynrah Ghost
>>8984605forget the bionicle, I'm jealous of that fucking view
>>8984203Is it true the Olmak has a pretty fucked pin connector? So far I've seen at least 3 cases when the pin simply breaks after certain time.
>>8985034Can't say so myself, and I have 4
>>8984564The purple one looks pretty nice, I think.
>>8984554really kino shot, reminds me of why I think Bionicle stands out from other toy lines, just looks so good
Does anyone remember these guys? Five Below used to sell them back in 2015.
>>8985271I remember the Robot Invincibility ones.
Finally selling my bionicle collection, if any anons want some I'm selling it by the pound. I have a listing on ebay. 4chan isn't letting me post the link but I'll drop one if I can.
>>8985332Here's the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/384140838405?hash=item5970940605:g:zZcAAOSwDi5gkaEg
>>8985271>>8985311for me, it's police legend
>>8985335>>8985332What kanohi you got
>>8985412Nothing particularly valuable, some of the mata, nuva, mctoran masks, stuff like that. I've already divided it into 1 lb bags though so if you want to get any kanohi you'll have to gamble on it.
>>8985427I refuse to do that
>>8984554>Can you be more specific about the image/model?I don’t even remember. It may have used this mask >>8984203 or one similar. (I’m kind of just a lurker that looks at the pictures and knows little of the lore.)
>>8985453That's fine, I'm trying to make some money out of it is all and I really insist I probably don't have any masks that are particularly valuable in the lots anyway.
>>8985271>>8985377Neat! The Five Below nearest to me doesn’t have any straight up bootleg, legally questionable stuff like that. Only name brand and off-brand.
>>8977116It's for boobs so it's ok
>>8983176Very nice, neck maybe to thin, add small rubber lego wheels over the axis, imho
>>8984565Piraka's gotta make a livin' ya know
>>8983176the stick thin waist, pencilneck and narrow hips really don't gel with the nuva tits honestly, but there's a lot to like about this. Slizer heads as feet just remind me of bunny slippers.
>>8985746Appreciate the feedback. I've never really worked with tires before, is there a thin enough one that can fit snugly on the hinge joint I'm using for her neck? The thinness of it was bothering me too, but I liked the way it allowed her to angle her head. >>8985802Are the hips really narrow? I honestly thought they were a bit on the wider side. The idea of her running around in bunny slippers is pretty funny though.
Now that he’s gained all Kraata powers, will he be Makuta in Trionicle?
>>8983915I looked through the image galleries for all of the toa mata and their respective sets but couldn't find anything for the packaging>>8984022I may have been looking in the wrong place, but I looked through the image galleries for set packaging and could only find scans of the turaga boxes. I also checked each toa image gallery as well.Thanks for the suggestions, I'm thinking I'll just have to find a listing for an empty box or used set so I can scan it myself
>>8985862The name and descriptions are so funnily shitpost-y and has some Engrish in it. >POLICE LEGEND>War for the invader FORM space>Heavy Equipment>Enthusiasm Game>Value Of Life>Ability To Execute
>>8986007I believe that "value of life" is a sort of morality stat that determines how willing they are to kill (higher value means they will only kill when absolutely necessary). "ability to execute" on the other hand is the level of scrutiny they are allowed to exercise when deciding whether or not it's necessary to execute on the spot or take the perpetrator in for trial
Thank you once again, Cool Anon! Your masks will go towards many new Toa, Rahi, and Matoran>>8985891Dear god the conflicting golds drive me nuts. Please fix that in the future.>>8983090As someone whos enjoys fully custom bodies, this things a fucking mess. Its got too many textures going on at once. >>8979469Using a bit of heresy. I cant bear to throw away broken parts, so a busted ccbs limb got sheared, sanded and used to hold a mata skull. Its an effective tech.
>>8985377They were sold pre-built? That's odd.
>>8985862You got rad names like Blizzard and Hunter and Guardian...And then there's Rye.
What is your luck on "Brick and pieces" for Bionicle. Did you get the pieces or they have none of them?
>>8984022I would absolutely fucking love to find these if anyone's got leads
>>8984271This one actually works pretty well, big head tohunga are cute
>>8986340I always just buy by the pound. Anything under 35 bucks a pound is a good price right now. Most places like ebay and mercari have exclusively bionicle lots.
>>8986349They're all on the BioMedia Project website, and I'm trying to find the specific sources now. In the meanwhile, take a gander at this imgur album: /a/tNVgYWd
>>8986590Terrible shame that most are so small. Would gladly use several as wallpapers.
>>8986272All CCBS-based bootlegs seem to be, for some reason. Reminds me of those bootleg Beast Wars figures that come in robot mode instead of beast mode.
>>8986883If maintaining detail at higher resolutions is important to you, there are plenty of methods to upscale images using AI available. As for the originals, here: >https://biomediaproject.com/bmp/files/gfx/1.0/Advance%20Art/What you probably want are the PSDs, so keep an eye open for that file type.
Fucking scamming bricklink sellers shouldn't be allowed to downvote me back. Doesn't matter if I have a clear proof that the seller is a scamming swine, the system still allows him to comment back making me look like an idiot.
>>8985891If anything the shoulders are a bit wide, but whatever. Thighs, hips and torso look completely fine. I'd agree the neck is a bit long or thin. Overall nice bionicle mommy.
>>8987027Isn't there a way to comment on the ratings you get?
>>8987038yes, but he can still comment back
>>8985891My point about the hips being too narrow is that the Vahki pelvis piece is the hips. You've bulked up the thighs nicely, but the actual point it connects to the pelivs is too narrow. I'm sure some people would be able to see the inika shoulder armor as the hips but to me the ball joint is the actual one - almost two studs narrower than the shoulder joint. As a general rule of thumb when desiging female-coded mocs I find that the hip joints being parallel to the shoulder joints makes the best looking proportions.
Dailu schizo nigle
>>8987070Strong Dark Hunter vibes. I like this guy.
Odd question, but if I'm doing more MOCing I've been curious what some useful parts to get in bulk might be. I've ben stocking on some bits I've seen used a lot, like pneumatic bits, basic Technic pieces, but I'm just wondering if I'm missing out on stuff.In a completely unrelated note, how do you all feel about turning Elves dragons and creatures into titty builds?
>>8987340>Elves dragons and creatures into titty builds?Been happening for a while now. But if you do, there's a chance you'll be outed as a pedophile apparently.
>>8987092>Strong Dark Hunter vibesThat’s not really a good thing. Most of those Dark Hunter contest entries were terrible freakazoids.
>>8987429>there's a chance you'll be outed as a pedophile apparently.Youd think people would call you a furfag before calling you a pedo over something like that.
>>8987027I started using bricklink less and started getting better deals on ebay and locally. You should make the switch unless they remove that bad review.
>>8982941They do? Wtf im rich now
>>8987502>terrible freakazoidsJust like the moc that anon posted. Which is a good thing in my book.
>>8982941Less than 2 bucks lier
>>8982941>>8987843I knew buying a bunch of those shoulders for boobies would pay off. Sitting on about 50 of them.
>>8987859>>8987863Noooo, muh boobies are worthless
>>8987429Thank goodness I'm only into thick older women so I've got nothing to worry about.
These guys are so cool

>>8988007It's good. I alternate between it and Brave.

>>8988063I like how they made it more aesthetically Bahrag.
>>8988034>>8988041>>8988047Personally I use the dissenter browser
For me, it's BIONIOLE.
>>8988041>>8988588Brave and Dissenter are garbage.https://tilde.club/~acz/shadow_wiki/browsers.xhtml
>>8987849Thanks, that's what I was going for
>>8988970G2 actually had some really nice sets.
>>8988970Hot (?) take: both Onua are among the best G2 sets, and are far better than some of the mediocre stuff G1 churned out, especially in its later years.
>>8989330Before I get jumped on, I didn't mean to say that everything in G1 is mediocre (of course not). I'm saying that G1 made some mediocre stuff (ie the Toa Mistika), and the best G2 stuff beats the worst G1 stuff by far.
>>8988927Reminds me of the time I bought Uniter Onua without the drill tip just because I wanted the purple bones.
>>8988041I do split with Pale Moon on one and Dissenter on the other.It gets interesting since Dissenter tends to be better for vidya anyways.
>>8987811Not everyone has that option. If you live far outside any cities local lots simply don't exist and you're forced to pay the bricklink Jew.I'm just happy I more or less finished my collection a month or so before prices started to skyrocketed.

>>8989637Would be nice if Bionicle had their own version of the Thing.
>>8989759It already does.
>>8988063Realistic bonkle makes me think of thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hc5eKza3dhM
What gives you guys the urge to put tires over limbs? I'm genuinely curious because I don't get it.
>>8990040eljay-tier autism that makes you think your moc has to fill in every little space else it will look "gappy"
>>8990040Not an anon who does that because I don't have them. But from what I've seen they are mostly used to cover boney pieces, say for example those CCBS ones. So I guess it's simply to give the moc more body and to cover hollow spaces instead of looking like a skeleton, provided you're not building a skeleton moc lol.
>>8989998Nice. I saw something similar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acnWy-tl3ng
>>8990040It's unironically best described as a meme; it's a technique that has been passed between different people via mimicry and without much explanation.
>>8990040Ignore the other anons, they have autism and their mocs most likely look like shit. People use tires simply to "beef" limbs up, sometimes, especially if you're going for a tougher, stronger look for you moc, you might wanna add more "meat" to the limbs. Tires are a pretty easy way to cover up the thin axle and fill the gap between the armor and the bone. Sometimes people use tires to add extra texture, or to break up the colorscheme/balance the accent colors.Tires are not suitable for every moc though, you gotta know where and how to use them. People who slap 5 tires on each limb are retarded, but so are those who seethe at the mere sight of one (1) tire on a moc.
>>8987618>>8987892Yeah you'd think, but apparently 2 well known moccers (the guy that built Zetrya and some guy called Dream SSD) are pedos who also built lewd mocs. There might be more but I dunno
>>8990608Wasn't Dawn because of people he was interacting with over Discord? Just don't go near Discord kiddos.
Rate my team
>>8990986comparable to the mocs I built over 15 years ago.
>>8988007what makes brutaka so damn good? is it his mask? his menacing design? the fact that he's the gigachad to axonn's manlet?
>>8991025He's the first tall 13-articulation titan, and gold/blue was new, compared to Axonn's silver/red being done already by Norik. I still think he's quite overrated, but he's not bad by any means.
>>8990986You truly captured the look of a 6-year-old's attempts at MOC making.
>>8991168Thanks that's what I was going for kinda
>>8991025his silhouette is extremely aesthetically pleasing since he has more humanoid proportions than most sets. his colour scheme is great as well and pretty unique to him. he's also just got a big sword and no projectiles or gear functions, so people who are fine with only having poseability appreciate his simplicity. overall he's just cool, and while some people dislike him for the reasons i listed, I think more people lean towards liking him.
>>8991262But the reason he's disliked is none of that but his overt greeblines and clashing textures
will we ever see a franchise like Bionicle again, or is it over for in house IPs that aren't based on system?
>>8991278offbrand is the future
>>8991275Personally I don't like Brutaka because I think he looks lanky and also the visorak foot on his belly makes him look potbellied to me.
>>8991295Only manlet would find him so lanky they see it as bad
>>8991063>>8991262Agreed on the color scheme. Bought him for that reason alone vs choosing Axonn. Finding out the mask power was dimensional travel only made him better after the fact. I would've bought Axonn later too, but Vezon & Fennrahk won out over him again.Trying to pick up an Axonn these days is way too pricy
Christian Faber making biotards seethe again.This time because he jumped on the NFT meme. Redditors and Discorders this time are turning on him. If he gets cancelled because this I am wholeheartedly blaming the bad karma from the april fools joke
>>8991302No, I just think his arms look weird and his torso looks weirdly built, making him look lanky.
>>8991381NFT is the future of bionicle
>>8991381Well, people already began hating on him some time ago when he made an "all lives matter" post and asked people to be respectful of each other, for which some loonies in the fanbase labeled him a bigot.Odd to think that years ago part of the fanbase turned on Greg and gravitated toward Faber as "the" Bionicle guy, and now for various reasons Faber's becoming hated on too. Maybe people like Bob Thompson made the right call by not getting too close to the fans.

>>8991530Stopped following bonkle in 2009, what happened with Greg?
>>8991640He moved on. I believe he wrote the Ninjago and Hero Factory books.
>>8991640People just didn't like his writing, they got tired of his BS retcons and plot twists, like the Red Star zombies, Great Being villain mastermind Velika or the Matoran developing sentience due to Velika's programming sabotage. But there was already a loud portion of the fans who hated his writing style long before that. Given that Greg used to be Bionicle's most public official figure, he got to be the target for all kinds of criticism, whether it was warranted or not. A bunch of fans even keep saying he ruined Bionicle.And since Greg wasn't part of the original concept creators for the franchise, whereas Faber was one of the main figureheads of its development, there was a time a while after G1 ended that people just flocked to Faber and his original concepts and began bashing on Greg even more.
>>8991675>He moved on.No offense, but that’s kind of BS. He still desperately hangs on to Bionicle G1 a lot of the time, constantly “canonizing” things that didn’t need to be canonized, going back bad making massive retcons to things that had already been established and accepted for years, making up off the wall answers to things in a poor attempt to make people think he even had an answer for it in the first place, attempting to de-canonize things even though it’s been over ten years at this point.
>>8991275only autists care about textures and blue pins.
>>8990732yeah and Grax was defending him
>>8990986Very adorable, I love them.
>>8990608>>8990732Dawn only said some edgy shit about his OC murdering children, then Double's clique tried to make it look like he's a pedo, but even Trimondius who shits on everyone in this community and is a massive shitter himself admitted that's bullshit.Fuck Double
>>8992252>DawnI like his vore, facesitting, and fart stuff. And his stopmotion is actually super smooth, even when it’s shitposting stuff.
>>8991678>Great Being villain mastermind Velika or the Matoran developing sentience due to Velika's programming sabotageThese were good
>>8992395Go away Greg
>>8991687>He still desperately hangs on to Bionicle G1No he isn't, he barely shows up anywhere, I haven't seen him post anything Bionicle-related in years. The only exception was when he gave an OK to the winning Helryx and Artakha models, but that's only because TTV emailed him.
>>8992460Seconding this. Velika mastermind is far better than the shit that happened in Metru Nui with Vakama and Makuta or Mazeka or Takanuva's dimension travels. Velika's scheming reminds me of MNOG Makuta.
>>8992498Whatever you say, FartShitty,

So people were talking about bootlegs a thread or so back. It's always been something I'm interested in at least when it comes to ones with unique designs, and right now I can only find 2 that fit this category on aliexpress. Most are straight copies of G2 designs. Sad.Look at these cute defenders. Can't find them on aliexpress anymore but they are pretty neat.

>>8993243Black is chaotic and feminine
>>8992553Greg doesn't give jack shit about Bionicle anymore, accept it anon
>>8993181Yeah, some of their originally designed knockoff CCBS stuff is actually pretty neat. Like s knockoff, but orgibally designed Toa Ekimu, and a set some people call “Son of Kulta,” which looks really nice (which I dub “Skulta”)
>>8993368I have all three of those, they’re super shitty
>>8993405They have a certain charm to them. I find that if you replace the parts that have official pieces and keep the unique knockoff parts they hold up much better and look a whole lot nicer. I have "Toa Breez" and "Son of Kulta" and they're honestly pretty kino
>>8993368I like the green guy.
>>8993181Why are the chinese knockoffs better sets?
>>8976467Definitely Derrick J Wyatt. His simple exaggerated style allows for the most background character customization as well as changes/damage to characters. It might not be 100% accurate to real life/the toys, but it’s still great.

>>8994024Such a powerful form
>>8992592Turaga or toa?
>>8976467Anyone, as long as they follow what MNOG/Ghost did and NOT the Miramax movies. That means NO mouths, NO eyebrows on the masks, no exaggerated expressions. And avoid turning Teridax into a fat t-rex (that wasn't entirely their fault, but still).And, while it's not exactly about your question, I'd like to say a thing or two about the soundtrack and get something off my chest. I've never liked Nathan Furst's work for the Miramax movies. There, I said it. It's technically good, sure, but the "epic high fantasy" orchestra music was such a major departure from 2001-2002's mysterious and vaguely intimidating electronic score and just didn't fit my idea of Bionicle at all.Tl,dr: more MNOG/Ghost, less Miramax. And good lord no mouths and no eyebrows, I beg you. Tl,dr the tl,dr: stop trying to turn Bionicle into LoTR for kids.

>>8994823Neither does noble
>>8995878It does, actually. It's a rare one. I think it's a mispring but I'm not sure. Different anon btw.
>>8995957Probably a misprint. Bricklink doesn't show yellow.
>>8996049Bricklink doesn't show a lot of bionicle mask colors, most of the mask pack ones are unlisted.
>>8996136They're unlisted in Known Colors, but not in Lots For Sale, assuming they have any for sale.
>>8996273Which I suppose explains its absence. For what it's worth I think it is a misprint though, now that I think about it.
