>>9077301what a shitty moc
Finally, the reason for why I saved those images 15 years ago has arrived.
>>9077338>>9077342there's something kind of cute about these somehow
>this threadMy fucking sides.
>>9077364pardon me for being a prude but your JUNK is hanging out my friend
>>9077364“No Fun allowed” people will complain but /biog/ has been vastly improved in terms of entertaining MOCs and fun memes since that one Anon built that Fatdaka MOC all those months ago
Do we know when the Ideas Anniversary set is going to be announced yet?
>>9077301reminds me of that one pic of sonic and shadow fused together into a toilet
>>9077301You could say the Kopaka mocs really went to shit.
>>9077112elaborate on breakout and brain attack
Give me a color scheme and I'll make a moc of it
>>9077935light bluish gray and dark bluish grayno other colors are allowed, even internally
>>9077949You seem to think this is a challenge but I love the greytone color schemes, give me a minute
>>9077949Toa Lego Star Wars
>>9077935Dunno, lime-green, black and glow in the dark pieces?
>>9077485>All those months agoNigga it's only been like 2 maybe 3 months. That isn't very long ago.
>>9077935Iron element colors.
>>9077935Bob from Reboot. (Same animation company that did the first bionicle movie)
>>9077935dark red and light blue
>>9077995>Nigga it's only been like 2 maybe 3 months. That isn't very long ago.Fatdaka was built in September 2020 anon. It's almost been a year.https://archive.nyafuu.org/toy/thread/8439662/
>>9077949>>9077961>>9077996>>9078001>>9078021Ok, I think this is plenty enough lol, I'll try and hit all of them. Also I'm the anon who uses stud.io and ignores parts availability by the way so I shouldn't have any problems with any of the requests.
It could have been him.
>>9078188All of them? Absolute madman if you nail it.
>>9078204I love this Tohunga revamp. Neat the guy who built it showed a know to build it too.
>>9078204now this is a neat matoran build
>>9078204it was #histurn
>>9077928Breakout first>Some of the best sets aesthetically in the line (Evo, Toxic Reapa, Core Hunter, Breez) mixed in with some of the worst (Rocka, Evo - who almost never had a good set, and the god-forsaken mess that is Voltix)>Even the more interesting designs aren't necessarily well made. For the big bad, Black Phantom is a pitiful rehash of ideas from Fire Lord and Rocka XL. Stormer and Speeda feel more like the stars here but even they're mediocre builds with a few interesting aspects. The end up better served for parts than their original models>The heroes, once again, end up the least interesting of the bunch. Most credit I can give them is trying to really mix up the builds and give each something unique in appearanceAlso, what's with Hero Factory's obsession with those hose pieces?But now Brain Attack. Good god I'm glad there's only a handful of the sets in what I bought.>Why the visor pieces. They look even worse than the bits they added in 2.0, and without them the heads look like they've been shrunken or given an underbite>Most of the heroes look at their worst. They're plain, barebones, and lacking in any personality. They all look like their part budget was reduced considerably, or that it all went into the idiotic "core protector claws">The idea of parasite-infested creatures is a fun one, but not this way. Most of the creatures end up looking dreadful and lack in good parts. The parasites are cool but ultimately uninteresting unless you really get into the collector idea like Krana or KraataReally my biggest complaint about Brain Attack has been the same since the sets were originally unveiled: they look hideous. Not a single set in that wave looks good. Far too many look like they're unfinished, like they ran out of time and shipped a 2/3 completed model and called it a day.I know it's subjective, but I do wish they'd done a bit more with these because there was so much potential to create some really interesting sets.
>>9077301So, is this basically similar to the sonic-toilet?
>>9078230>Neat the guy who built it showed a know to build it too.who
>>9077112>>9078268Would you be able to give more detailed thoughts on invasion from below, you mentioned that you found it to be a good wave
>>9078368Only said it was a good wave based on others' impressions. I was out of the loop back when it was going and actually never saw any of the sets in stores to begin with. But I've got a fairly positive view of it for trying something a bit different with the mecha vs monsters.I do recall a lot of favorable impressions from other anons in past years, I believe the Evo Machine XL was regarded as a high point of CCBS as well.
Any good revamps for the mata/nuva that give them knees and elbows?
>>9078826If you're interested in 3d printing, someone made versions of existing limbs with motile bends
>>9078957I'm aware of the 3D printable limbs, but I've yet to find a consistent set of all of the limb parts to commit to.
Final hours to join Biocup!
>>9079216Biocup just reminds me every year that I'd be with those part spamming flex-tube fetishists if I could actively build something instead of taking months to build a moc's legs or torso>see preliminary entry theme>instantly think of puns to make mocs out of>come up with Takadoc>start building >make a nice head>sits there with no body for a week because I have no clue how to start oneAnd now it'll be in the hall of WIPs for about 8-16 months, right next to the other two unfinished heads.
>>9079417just make a fikou with some twist, I whipped my entry together in two days.
>>9078472I think IfB was pretty disappointing for constraction fans because it relied so heavily on the minifig and general system scale that they felt dinky compared to what came before. That said, I do like some of what IfB did, the mechs were preety cool even if the beasts sucked, and the more machine-like mechs from the second wave were very refreshing to build amidst all the humanoid-stance robots we'd been buidling with the same parts for years. Evo XL machine is my favourite HF set they produced. IfB desperately tried to shake up how constraction worked but ended up alienating both constraction and system fans on the premise alone, to the point that not many people even bothered to try it out, even when some of the sets were HF's best.
>>9078826some veechooba built some on stream that does an effective job at revamping them and retaining the old aesthetic, but it does just boil down to lots of technic bits in vague approximations of the old parts, whether you're down with that idk but it's not for me.
>>9079743I really hated how humanoid the mechs still were, giving them anything other than the clown feet would had gone a long way. Nevertheless, not like that issue was ever addressed.
>>9079872I will never understand why lego insisted on using the same, disgusting, oversized, stupid-looking foot piece for every fucking constraction set after 2011.
>>9079872At least HF gave us Stormer XL feet which are great for titans. But it's troubling to think that fucking Ben 10 gave us as many foot pieces in half a year as HF did in 4 and half.
>>9080172insider sabotage by the suits
>>9079417dude, just start picking up pieces and holding them together.
I want to grab another set of McToran and give them different masks so I can have lots of different looking Matoran, but I'm not sure what masks would look best. Any suggestions?To make things easier I still need to get a Light blue Pakari for a Takua and a blue Kaukau for a Gahli, so that leaves only four choices of masks.
>>9080369remember that the bohrok-va have different feet colors much of the time so you can make matoran with a different main color to the mctoran.
>>9080406True, but I don't have any bohrok-va yet. I've only just started collecting. Suppose I could just buy individual leg pieces but still. You also just reminded me I still need to get the Turaga desu. Maybe I should focus on getting them before I grab some more Mctoran.
>>9080447Either way bricklink will be the cheapest way to get anything you want. I design mocs and buy them on bricklink relatively often.
My sleep paralysis demon last night was a bionicle that made me French kiss it
>>9080866pray them away
>>9080866Should have dabbed on that nibba instead
>>9080879Bro I was paralysed
>>9080866Was it cute?
>>9080890idk I guess. Its tongue was surprisingly soft
>>9080866Pretending you have sleep paralysis doesn't make you seem interesting
>>9080866Did you break that buck?
>>9077301Did the chinese bootleggers ever make this piece avalible on it's own? I dont want to buy an entire set just to get them.
>>9081830Holy shit I didn't know this existed. Now I'm curious about the plastic quality.
>>9082296I've heard that their plastic quality, if Lego's is 10 (when not fucking up), is about a 7.
>>9082383That's not saying much I afraid, from what I heard Lego's quality has gone down the shitter in later years.Unless you're comparing it to a pre-Phantoka quality piece. If so then I'd love to buy those hands.
>>9077301fancy going for a swim, /biog/?
>>9082480Stop making horny for thicc bonks
>>9082601I'm always impressed by these builds. Really would like to try my own sometime. Admittedly part born of horniness, but also just as designing something completely different.
>>9082628They LOOK great, but they're built like utter ass. Not very structurally competent, but they don't need to be because they're only supposed to look nice for flickr
>>9082653And that's why I'd want to build something that tows the line of looking good while also being structurally sound. Never saw the point of making a nice looking build when it could fall apart at just the slightest touch.
>>9083046>wasting those rare expensive masks on an ugly ass coomer mocI will never understand
>>9083046>that white / golden mocGod damn those amazing Kanohi
>>9082666This was meant for >>9082644All the same, whatever.>>9083046This is hilarious for the mask use alone
Are any HF helmets salvageable as kanohi? Left makes a pretty great skakdi head
>>9083196And honestly second right looks nice. Like a non organic version of Hewkii’s inika mask
>>9083196Isn't the far right just Hydraxon's mask?
>>9083196Haven't tried it out but Splitface's two different face plates could make for decent masks if you get two copies. They're mirrored so you can put two of the same together to get a uniform head.
>>9083196Wouldn't these make more sense as Glatorian/Agori helmets, since that's basically exactly what they are? Xplode's kind of reminds me of a mix between Malum and Strakk.
>>9083196I'd say Strakk's helmet works really well for a spiky / corrupt-like Kanohi.It's a shame the helmets didn't come in more colors.
>>9083284Speaking of recolors, I remember thinking Berix' helmet being in blue but looking like fire meant they were gonna recolor it and lo and behold, Ackar.
>>9083204Not too shabby
>>9083284I think Terix’s looks just like a kanohi, and Gresh reminds me of Nokama’s noble
>>9083754Oh I dig it. Not perfect but certainly not a bad look either
The Toa Hagah canon contest started finally, apparently.
>>9083845I thought it already started weeks ago.
>>9083760Would make a good Phantoka style mask.
>>9080172They weren’t all that oversized for 2015 and 2016 Toa.
>>9083046That’s actually pretty hot.
>>9083754Uh-oh, Jang’s gonna piss and shid his pants when he sees that someone used one of his overly watermarked pictures!!!
>>9082644>>9082666You could always go with a smaller scale and simpler build. You can still have decent poses and stability. If you wanna go the extra mile, double knee and elbow joints.
>>9084226The deadline's come and gone
https://board.ttvchannel.com/t/bomonga-the-stalwart-canon-contest-3-honor-guard/60135Is this a joke from here or is it serious?
>>9084467>implying any of us would put a tranny flag in our work
>>9083961That's how you get Fatdaka. Either that or the anon that wanted to make a MOC with Gadunka titties.>>9084226Definitely true. Might not hurt for the initial build and could scale up from there.
>>9084523>That's how you get Fatdaka.I don't see the problem.
>>9084532I mean I don't either, but not everyone's into that.Though to be fair I've enjoyed the art more. The MOCs have more comical more than anything.On that note, anyone have the screencap of the original thread? Meant to save that one.
>>9084496We could just for the meme. Or to bait them
>>9080866Matoran, Toa or Kikanalo?
>>9084523>That's how you get Fatdaka.Well thank god I have not enough pieces to even build a natural thicc bioniwaifu
>>9084467Serious, I'm afraid. But that Kualsi in baby blue does look good.
>>9084762I will say, that is a really impressive build the more I look at it. Are there pics of the head construction?And stupid as it sounds these just convince me more to try and build one for the hell of it.
i showed my mom /r/sexybionicles and she thought it was funny as fuck
>>9084844Each picture has a link to the site anon. And there's no wip pictures afaik.
>>9084917Shame, but thanks nonetheless. I'll take a look further for inspiration and see if I can get a rough idea of the build.
can someone post a picture of one of the original toa with a golden vahi on?
big big chungus, big chungus, big chungus
>>9084523Wtf is fatdaka
>>9085280Bro you didn't visit these threads for the past year?
>>9085280Newfag just outed himself
>>9084523>MOC with Gadunka titties.FUND IT
>>9085573Is that the fattest build thus far?
>Trust the science
>>9085844The science promised to make me a woman and it failed me. I'm sick of it. From now on I'm putting my faith in God.
Is this piece from Hero Factory’s vapor used in any bonk sets?
>>9085363no I knew about it I just couldn't find>>9085515
>>9085765>Thinkpad>screams of frustration and agony
>>9086019the mantis... is strong
>>9083196My autism doesn't let me use Glatorian helmets or Hero Factory heads as kanohi. I truly despise inika rubber masks, if only they were normal masks I would be filthy rich. But no!!
>>9086108Well, to be fair in story those are helmets too. It irks me a bit because some have beautiful designs I wish they were created as normal Kanohi.
>>9086108Same. My only goal in life is to acquire mask packs
>>9086108>>9086112I fucking hate summer childs.
>>9086321I'm worse and an autumn child.Fucking gaybo over here.
>>9086341you actually are summerfags, I didn't think they'd be on /toy/ of all things.
>>9086112Honestly that's part of the reason I wanted at least one of the winning Hagah designs to use a HF helmet. Just so they get canonized as Kanohi, and someone reworks them to attach like masks to Mata/Metru heads.I bet, however, that the winning drawing will use whole new mask designs invented by the artist, even Pouks.
>>9086346>Born in NovemberNigger are you seriously that fucking retarded?
These are my sealed bionicles which I hope to sell one day. Currently Morak is on his way home and I am thinking about buying Mutran and Vican. I was really close to buying Voporak but then it came out that the box has already been op*ned.
>>9086501How valuable could these get?
>>9086542I bought them for cheaper than what they are listed at on ebay, so I hope eventually for more than that. Most expensive one of these is Lehvak at like $70, which costs $110 as of now.
>>9086542>>9086607To add to that, I'd say the first sets will always climb up in value, with Mahri I am relying on how great the season was, and with Phantoka I'd say the key is that the sockets on parts are still not used and new.
>>9083982Oh no!!! Who gave JammgireBinkles a GUN??!!!??!!!!¡¡!!??
>>9086607>>9086617Ive got a full set of 03 matoran in their original packaging myself. I wonder that they could go for in a decade or so.
>>9083982Tell me about Jang, why does he wear the moustache-less beard?
>>9086706his hair is actually a helmet, the beard is a strap that keeps it on
>>9086756That certainly seems to make sense.
>>9086670Why? Do it yourself.
>>9086788I would if I had it you faggot
>>9086846has anyone ever built this guy? wouldn't be hard
>>9086867Isn't that just Tahu? The legs attachment is different but that's it.
>>9084226WHERE DO YOU GET THESE DIFFERENT COLORED MIXEL JOINTS ?AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>9083094>actually using the mask for something >wasting KYS
>>9086896Well he's also grey and black.
>>9086846i'd like to see a picture of it on a real toa, not a cad render. please, anyone?
Why are these little fuckers so expensive? They were mcdonalds toys, shouldn't they be extremely common?
>>9086902I'm not poor I just want to know if I like how it looks before I buy it
>>9086952bought 2 this year and I think they're overrated
>>9086945being used in a coomer moc is a far worse fate than not being used at all
>>9086952they were happy meal toys so kids probably didn't take as much care of them, small so easily lost, cheaper plastic for some parts so easily broken (especially the arms), etc
>>9086952It's Bionicle firstly, and secondly the parts make for good MOC material.
>>9086950>>9086954Sure sounds like poorfagging to me.Stop fearing buyer's remorse and just buy the damn thing if you're so curious about it.
>>9086952I had 2 of Maku as a kid and I traded one of the masks to another kid who had a Jala mask but didn't have the rest of the set. He just found it somewhere. Seemed like a good idea at the time, looking back idk.
>>9086952I just want the purple mask to make Voriki.
>>9086921nta but they're likely offbrand. I got a bunch of different colours of both the 1x2 plate with socket and the axle with balljoint from Vonado and GoBricks. You can get other cool parts that way too, like 3 length thin liftarms in lime ot Mata Matoran legs in different colours, or pins, axles and translucent shit that Lego doesn't produce.
>>9086950Will you shut up already? The render I found eith a google search as well as just looking at the mask and the Toa should give you enough idea of what it looks like. How autistic are you to need a picture? Stop shitting up the thread.
>>9086999Anon... let that retard be so he can get told to fuck off by everyone else.
>>9085056here you go anon
>>9087007>>9085056also here's one with a modified Takanuva
>>9086949I assumed it was just him being shadowed.
>>9087010fuck, forgot pic
>>9087011It's a reasonable assumption, but building Tahu Negro (Forma de Vahi) seems like a fun thing.
>>9087007>>9087016thank you a lot
>>9087016is it light gray or white?
>>9087029Takanuva is all white.
>>9087029he's as white as I could make him. you can see some light grey with the gears and neck pieces.
>>9087007>>9087016Thanks for spoonfeeding the whiny faggot, Takanuva looks specially good for obvious color reasons. The golden one is supposed to be the rusted version right?
>>9087016>you know i had to do it to em
>>9087029Takanuva is the whitest Toa alive
>>9087016>>9087007>no dragon dildo0/10
>>9087090Gold is original, like Ignika and the Mask of Creation. Orange is rusted.
>>9087090haha I'm honestly not sure why you guys got so mad at him for that, I'm always happy to post pics of something if I've got it. I'm pretty sure the orange one is supposed to be the rusted one but don't know for certain.
>>9087170>dragon dildoleave that to the degenerate trannies
>>9084751It was this Toa specifically
I left all my bonks at home while I work at sea :( probably won’t see them again for at least a year. Wish I brought one with me on the ship
>>9088552>One year without bonkDamn, good luck anon. Stay stronk
Some toa?/glatorian? dudes I threw together, playing around with some non-inika torso builds
>>9088956My only gripe is the use of glatorian hands and that isn't even innately a bad thing.7/10 They have style
>>9088956Love the Vahki heads on the white guy's torso. They feel loke something Karzahni would (re)build.
>>9086449this has to be bait
>>9086992they're pretty cheap on BL
>>9077591I know who drew that
>>9088552definitely should've brought at least a small matoran or something. my last vacation I made room to take a single bohrok with me just to have a reminder of home.
>>9084523>make a MOC with Gadunka titties.Just picked up an extra Gadunka headpiece. Gonna MOC this happen
>>9089262Here >>9089163This is how you reply properly sweetheart ;)
For me, it's Radiak's "Noble Jutlin".
these bionicle prices seem pretty high, i wanted to rebuild some old sets I have but missing a few parts. Bricklink is best right?
>>9089412Normal G1 bulk is pretty cheap all things considered. Masks, weapons, other unique parts and some more elaborate Technic bits can get a bit pricy, but if you want, say, Onua Mata, I'd say it's cheaper to buy the loose parts if you don't care of canister and instructions.
>>9087246I hate you :D
>>9089245Do it. Become a legend.
>>9089690I’m already a legend
>>9087436Reject trannies, embrace mutated barnacles
>>9090023Also say what you want about those short-lived Ben 10 construction sets, those torso pieces really make for some good organic carapaces. I may or may not find a jetray or whatever the red one was called and use the red chest plate for this MOC. The limbs could also be painted and maybe be used to look more like realistic musculature for a larger, uglier MOC I have.
>>9088552Surprised you didn't bring one of the Mahri niggas since they're home at sea.
>>9086896Looking at it harder, >>9086846 actually seems to be a bit different. For one his sword is in his left hand are, but also, look at his shoulders - they're using the slizers connectors/Mata hands instead of the traditional hand connectors. Plus, his right hand is also a sword-swinging hand, and I've NO idea what the hell his actual hand is. Could possibly just be photobashed nonsense given that it's a concept render, and not an actual piece/pieces, but still. Very odd.
>>9089690The shitty youtube subs ruin this image for me yet it keeps getting posted. Somebody for the love of god make an improved version
>inika masks bad because... because... WELL THEY JUST ARE, OKAY
>>9090356because they're bad? The image you posted intentionally changes design elements of it the Iden, for example.
>>9090356They're ugly as fuck.
The jokes just write themselves.
>>9090356Hot (?) take: the Inika masks are ugly as masks but pretty good as heads for some other MU species. They look alien as fuck, especially the Iden and the Calix.But I'll never quite understand what possessed them to think that something like pic related could be a credible "good guy". The Suletu is one of the most evil looking mask/head/helmet parts they've ever produced for constraction. It is a perfect Olisi though, I'll give it that.
>>9090149I thought the shitty subs were the joke
>>9090889No they're just lazy, because the original screencapper didn't want to stitch this and the previous shot together and edit in proper subs.
>>9090356But they ARE bad. Both how the masks connect and the heads just suck. Why didn't they just create hard plastic masks and then use Mata heads with axle and balljoint? Then the masks would be more similar to the Nuva ones, except on the Inika they wouldn't look so oversized. Would be nicer to use and clean of dust too.
>>9090762>> That moment when Trans posters make slash fan fiction between Muaka-TigerXMatoroXKopaka look more ethical.
>>9090762stuff like that is what makes me dislike trannies
>>9091016What's wrong with it?
>>9091031nta but it's kind of like forcing meaning onto things that inherently have nothing to do with the subject. I don't dislike transgender people but Bionicles has nothing to do with such a topic. It's only partially annoying with most subjects, but the LGBT community loves to force their sexual representation onto anything and everything. Matoro is just a translator for Nuju, he isn't coming out of the closet or fighting for trans rights. Nuju wouldn't even know what that fucking flag means. It's not like transgender Matoran are a thing.It's just some sad individual projecting his sexual beliefs and politics onto children's toys, which canonically have a set 'gender' based on what element they are anyway. That's what is wrong with it.
>>9091074>but the LGBT community loves to force their sexual representation onto anything and everything>It's just some sad individual projecting his sexual beliefs and politics onto children's toysSo basically what has been poisoning fictional media for the last 7 years or more but applied to plastic figurines
>>9091074NTA either but I don't see any harm in it. A lot of people like to imagine little stories and headcanons for their toys, or make them do goofy non-canonical things. In fact, the latter is one of the foundational building blocks of /toy/--people having goofy fun with serious characters, because that's the freedom that toys afford you.I hypothesize that the reason why this is "different" all of a sudden when it comes to LGBT issues is because a lot of people have internalized issues with gay stuff even if they don't really realize it. "Internalized homophobia" doesn't necessarily mean you hate or want to beat up gays, it can simply mean societally-implanted negative ideas. If you find yourself so annoyed by a Bionicle holding a pride flag, ask yourself the real reason for that. Why are you not similarly annoyed by it holding say, a guitar, or an ice cream cone, or any number of other things that do not exist in that universe?tl;dr: it's just people having fun, let them have their fun.
>>9091074Cry more chud
>>9091183>>9091187Kill yourself. I bet you like the MLPfaggotry shoved into it too. Also, not that anon.
>>9091203I'm not a little insecure bitch, i don't get mad at things like you retards.
>>9091183>If you find yourself so annoyed by a Bionicle holding a pride flag, ask yourself the real reason for that.Because it starts with that seemingless inoccuous shit and ends up eroding and spoiling the entire bucket. Just ask the SCP project, from having interesting stuff like the concept of what happens after death as an SCP to hosting a goddamn self insert that reads fucking homestuck and is LGBTQ.Pasting the trans flag or similar stuff into as much as possible is acceptable and people will even die on that hill to defend it as if opposing it or complaining is not only an annoyed recoil but an act of defiance and oppression. However, switch that flag with a nazi one and people will start loosing their shit.Hell even coomer mocs no matter if it just have some slight nooba get more shit than this.>>9091203Ponyfaggotry is way better than this bullshit, they aren't as pushy nor demand that you bow and mold everything to suit them
>>9091206>However, switch that flag with a nazi one and people will start loosing their shit>comparing people who want to exterminate an entire race to people just trying to be happy with themselvesDawg, are you really this bad at arguing or are you just memeing?
>>9091219He is a chud, what do you think? They can only argue with stupid strawmen.
>>9091219Don't tell me that nazi jokes aren't hitlerious.Again and for the sake of the argument,sexualized mocs get ton of more shit no matter how sexualized they are. You don't even need to go full fatdaka or DawnofNssd to get more eyebrows raised in your general direction than posting Matoro with a trans flagBut hey I guess we are all here to have fun aren't we? (except some fun is more allowed than others)>>9091222Why yes, is there any problem with that, mister?
>>9091235We don't want people like you in this fandom.
>>9091251Well I was here first, so either deal with it or get out.I also don't want a lot of shit that is on this fandom and that's aside of the topic of the argument but here we fucking are.
stop taking the bait
>>9091187Chud is a bad insult. It's slow, clumsy, and has no historical bearing just like the Marxists that use it.
>>9091251We don't want people like YOU in this fandom, fag.
Illegal AND HOT
>>9091359>those illegal rubber 1 x 2 liftarmsdesgustang
>>9091251Speak for yourself, I'd rather be surrounded by autistic larpers that I know will never act aside from shitposting and talking a big game, than be surrounded by fucking queers. At least the nazis don't wear that shit on their sleeve every waking second of the day and demand praise for their poor social skills and life choices. No, I don't give a fuck that you're mentally ill and no, I don't want you here. Kys, retard.
Your samefagging is really obvious
>>9091364post your moc
>>9091183Send yourself to the red star
>>9091251Lol. I would rather have Nazis then the work crowd
>>9091359what am I even looking at? I can't tell what it's even supposed to be
>>9091378working on a crappy optimus prime in stud.io, I'll show you it when it's done but it's not good. Also the same anon that posted the purple/keetorange bug, brown/black guy with the kakama nuva, makuta revamp, and was taking color scheme requests (doing those too, just slower because my brain is small.)
>>9091387creepy oc alien
>>9091074> I don't dislike transgender people >BUTYeah sure.
>>9091805I don't like transgender people.
>>9090762autists with no life and projecting one on their toys
>>9091805I hate "transgender" "people"
>>9091805I didn’t inherently hate transgender people but every one of my experiences with them have been overwhelming negative. I’ve concluded that I dislike them as a group entirely and the world would be better off if they collectively died. I hate all transgender people
Can we get trancels to cancel bionicle already so they can fuck off? >gender rolls enforced and acting out of line literally gets you sent to reeducation camps>depicts polynesian culture as a culture of savages>slavery and racism against other matoran universe/bara racesAnd make a big deal about how genders are set so the pronoun in bio faggots can cry. I bet this is possible to do one day.
>>9091865Please, this would be ideal. The only issue I could see is it dissuading Lego from touching bionicle or over"correcting" and making it woke, but considering it's basically equal to its chances now... I suppose we'll have to see if they do something for the anniversary. If they don't, I say we bury the hatchet like basically everyone else has.
>>9091873the anniversary has come and gone lmao
>>9091805It's not trannies in general that do shit like plastering those ugly pink and blue flags everywhere. It's the autogynephilic men and the """nonbinary""" women.
>>9091882Meant the year
>>9091873Lego will never support g3 after g2. This is the biovival age, it’s basically our ip to do whatever the fuck we want with it, and that means getting rid of people who have no personalities besides political movements
>>9091219>people just trying to be happy with themselvesIf that was what trannies were, it wouldn't be a problem. Shame they spend their entire lives trying to police the behavior of others to a degree that would make Satanic Panic soccer moms cringe.
>>9092026Not quite, those people don't even fit what is the lowest common definition of trans.
>>9092087I would call them trannies. They should be lined up on the wall along with them.
>>9092062This is like saying all Germans are nazis. If you choose to focus on the bad behavior of a few and apply it to the whole group then sure, said group is gonna look real bad in your head.
>>9092214This, it's the vocal minority that we usually see.
>>9092214>>Choose to ignore Twitter and subsequent trans culture being spawned from toxic peer pressure to come out as "Trans" by cat-sniffing teachers and malicious institutions.
>>9092351Twitter is toxic as fuck in the first place. If you're using that as a metric of course you're going to have a bad impression.
>>9077301I noticed that some of my older sets' joins squeak a lot when I move them around, is there a way to fix this? WD-40?
>>9077935white and orange. Toa of Dreamsicle
>>9092379Literally a marketplace of ideas for the influential 10 percent of the country.When you have countries like India that number in the billions concentrating on shutting down/clamping on the site, that isn't a metric you can avoid.Such a thought is only a liberal wet dream when Twitter literally is behind de-platforming a president and collude with other tech sites to track dissidents rather than follow nations' laws.
>>9092425take them apart and soak them in warm water then wipe with absorbanr cloth. Squeaking is from dust, oftentimes too small to see.
>>9091157They've been doing this since like the Cold War.You just didn't notice it much at all then. It's only within the last decade and a half that it's finally become noticeable and insufferable to the normal mortal man.
>>9091281If only it were so simple
>>9092470will try that out, thanks!
>>9083982Looks like Abe Lincoln if the bullet missed.
>>9091837I find many aspects of the LGBT community, specifically the trans side, to be extremely invasive.
more mentions of "trans" than "bionicle"certified /biog/ moment
>>9092989Bionicle and Trans Community go hand in hand.
>>9093125Actually, take this one instead. The first one was way too big. I'm rusty at this.
>>9092214>This is like saying all Germans are nazisSome are muslims, it's true.
>>9093130I have to ask, what's the name of the font used for the bionicle stuff? Plus if possible where can I download a font pack so I can use them too?Thanks
>>9091183Go back to simping Charlie.
>>9093151It's called Voya Nui GF. There's several places to download it, but here's where I got it from. Glad to help!https://fonts2u.com/voya-nui.font
>>9093169>>9093176Thank you and I will.
>>9093151Trademarker and its light variant is the one most used in box/booklet covers as well as the websites. Specially for early years
>>9091865>>9091873Ever heard of monkey paws?
>>9093176>tfw no Voya Nui GF
>>9093130Oh I'm saving this shit
Post drunk bonkles
>>9094224How old can it be? It's got a bunch of CCBS in it.
>>90942322012 was 9 years ago, anon.
>>9094148took that extra for you
>>9094611>iridescent blue Super battle droid partsMein negroHeavily underrated parts
>>9094638Wanted to build with rarer colours for a while, especially metal blue. I spent at least 40€ on the metal blue in this, because hardly anyone on BL had large quantities of it.
>>9094670I think it was only ever used in that super battle droid set
>>9090356I thought they were kinda weird as a kid.... and still kinda do. But I still thought the inika were super badass anyway back then lol. Nuparu's mask is cool though.
>>9094680It was indeed. That's why parts are limited in variety and high in price quickly. Just because I was going for high quantity, I paid over 20 bucks for 20 small liftarms. It was a mix of 2 and 3 length. The 4 length liftarms of the ratched joints are cheap as fuck in comparison.
>>9093130Fucking based I didn't think anyone actually would; I over-bitched because I assumed the entire general was too busy ranting to care. Saving this, thanks a bunch anon!
>>9090356They are weird, possibly ugly, and unconventional, and that's EXACTLY WHY they're good. I love Bionicle characters when they don't look like traditional heroes; the Mata are borderline anorexic with disproportionate arms making them look alien, and the Hordika were generic but I loved their concept, but I especially adored the Inika and Mahri. Even moreso when you take into account that in the plot they're literally not even a B-team, they're a fucking Z-team of Matoran that got lucky enough to be handed badass powers, yet in both incarnations they still look like fucking weirdos and outcasts as far as Toa go. It's true what they say about underdogs, I guess.
>>9090356if the heads had light piping and a variety of eye colours, i'd be completely fine with them. as it stands I just dislike the way they're put together. the designs are cool.
>>9090356>They are bad because I said soYes
>>9094712No it's because we want to shut your faggot ass up
>>9094728Unconventional my ass, it doesn't take much brain power to conclude the inika masks exist because of the movies and for the same reason, to make the characters more humanoid and convey emotions with more than just eye movement.
>>9095302Gross . Alien robots should not behave like humans
I can't decide if I want to collect all the Toa Mata first or if I should get some Bionicles from other gens that I liked (Metru Vakama, Mahri Hewki, Toa Lhikan)What should I do bros
>>9095341I didn't say I liked it, just said why they probably did it
I finally built the final Slizer combiner I've never built, and I'm sorry, but it appears I left the worst one last. Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate that they tried something different than just bipedal giant like the other two. But all I can see is a monster that keeps asking for the sweet embrace of death. I like the opening mouth, and the swinging gearboxes are fun, but the legs. They're like Toa Kaita, but worse. Surprised that he's so stable, but it hardly does anything to improve overall looks. Probably going to dismantle him soon, the four are much more fun separately.
>>9095484>Mahri Hewki, Toa Lhikan)So a set considered by many to be the worst canister set of the bunch, and a limited titan set that hasn't gotten any cheaper over the years.
>>9095302A lot of the 06 sets seemed to have been designed like they had been expecting another movie. I of course don't know if this is true, but just by looking at the sets, they're practically ready-made for animation. The Piraka and Inika all have rubber faces, most have mouths, Axonn and Brutaka not only have fingers but also well defined jaws and Axonn's mask even has built-in pistons for mouth movement.I wonder if they made the sets like that mainly to make the characters more "screen ready", since Lego's higher management was experimenting with all sorts of multimedia tie-ins at the time.
>>9095484I still can't believe how amazingly well the CG from the earlier years still holds up. Is it the lighting? Is it just the Bionicle figures looking swell even to this day? How did they do it?
>>9095484>why do you arrest Lehvak-Va? Lehvak-Va is innocent of this crime
>>9095770The artists had a good eye for composition, colors, shadows and loads of Photoshop effects. If you take away the additional drawn-in elements and effects, the base images aren't too special, although they have that glossy, 90s and early 2000s CGI charm to them. The 3D CG renders really worked well together with the drawn elements.
>>9095817Dare I ask how you managed to restore it to such a state?
>>9095838BioMedia has a lot of the old images as .psd files that you can open in Photoshop or Gimp and take apart the layers separately. Every object, character, effect, background and foreground element is on its own layer since these images were taken directly from Lego's digital style guide.
>>9095484>>9095779Is Matau threatening the Lehvak-Va or is this photo taken mid-execution?
>>9095854It's like a Bionicle liveleak
>>9095858Shit that's intense. Never knew Matau had it in him.
>>9095754Well that's a shame. Always thought that one looked the coolest. Dynamo seemed the least interesting from a build standpoint but these old combiners really do seem like a mess of cobbling parts.
>>9095876Never trust a Le-Matoran.
>>9096224Turaga "If he ain't got a kanohi, cook em' like cannoli" Matau
>>9080406Do you mean, like in the same swarm, but different feet colors? Like some gahlok va with different shades of blue?
it is tohunga tuesday
>>9096318>sidewaysforgot to crop it, good thing kongu has such good balance
>>9096301I think he's just talking about the va having foot colors that the original mctoran didn't, like regular green for lehval va as opposed to kongu's teal
>>9096301>>9096328 is correct, I meant different than the mctoran's.
>>9077338>>9077342I smell a disturbed fetish here
>>9096318Happy Tuesday, then
>didn't watch the nintendo direct>friend tells me they announced a bonk game>believed it cus of lego greenlighting the fangame>feelsbadman
>>9096860Your friend is making fun of you
>>9090054they had scuba masks, that's what the tubes were for, suck my ass Greg.
>>9097041Personally I like the idea of the tubes being gills just because them being biomechanical justifies weird things like that. Not every arbitrary change is necessarily bad imo.
