korra take 2

I'm -still- having a hard time believing that it actually happened. that finale is all I've been able to think about the last few days between the ending and the fact that it's actually over. I was actually starting to stress out about what the creators would have to say, which route they'd take - but yet again I was relieved with the messages they posted. Good series, good world, good people.

Farewell to the coolest animated show since its predecessor.


Well Jeez

Just had my 20th birthday last week and 3 days later my 10th BZP anniversary, and I totally forgot. I've officially been on this site for half of my life. Wow.

Also I get a nice new tohu spinny, pretty thrilled about that.

don't even worry about spoilers from me because I'm incapable of speaking/typing coherently now



Posted by The Xinlo , Dec 12 2014 · 165 views

my family is destroying itself right now due to the insensitive and unexplainable actions of one member and this is going to be the worst christmas vacation ever if it continues the way things are going right now

I don't even want to be at home. i want to just leave town for a few months and get away and live my life without worrying about some huge fight happening every night

since the only pic of me on here is like three and a half years old I thought I'd post an updated one (also because I thought my hair looked awesome today)

A good day for mail

early birthday gift from my parents. cost about $45, amazingly, for all the roboriders save Boss, two Tahus, Onua, Pohatu, Tahu Nuva, Onua Nuva and Lewa Nuva. Of course I already have multiples of the bionicle sets, this was mostly for the roboriders, but I never had onua or tahu's canisters and all the sets came with their promo material (posters, ad books) which I had long ago misplaced. So yay for that!


Star Wars

Posted by The Xinlo , Nov 11 2014 · 196 views

Would anyone be able to steer me in the direction of a cool Star Wars DVD box set? I like my DVD collection to look nice and coherent with box sets rather than individual DVDs but all I can ever find for Star Wars is blu-ray. Anyone have one they'd recommend or know of a good one to get?


on the Doctor Who finale

Posted by The Xinlo , Nov 02 2014 · 207 views

so I got fed up with the show (after being a loyal viewer since series 2) after The Caretaker and haven't seen any episodes since. Ryuujin says the finale's looking to be great, so I thought I'd get everyone's opinion: is it worth catching up on the show to see the finale? Or should I just watch the finale and forget the 4 episodes I missed? or should I just not care at all?

you decide!


Star Trek Movies

Thanks to Black Six, I finally have them all! Now I just need to complete my collection of the TV shows haha... my poor wallet.


I made an art

Posted by The Xinlo , Oct 26 2014 · 123 views

this is like the first time I've drawn in over a year so I could use some feedback. here or in the topic, doesn't really matter, but many thanks either way!

click for picture of Gali


so yeah she's supposed to be swimming but the scanner cut off her feet so it looks like she's just walking with her hand out in the air for no reason. :P


brought all my sets out from storage

Posted by The Xinlo , Oct 13 2014 · 184 views

so yeah my room's really small now and I have nowhere to put all my bionicles, so I packed them up when we moved here and they've been in storage for almost 2 years...

with the return of bionicle I was feeling all nostalgic and had to bring them out, even if they have to go back in a few days.

anyway here's some pictures of my collection as it looks at the moment (this is still only slightly more than half, there's all the larger sets in the long box I didn't take out and all the disassembled duders in a very large bucket. also all those ones' empty cases in a bag in storage still).

and here's a bonus thing, all the original '01 sets that I still have with their original poackaging. Not too many, but it's still nice to look at it especially since I was too young and not quite into bionicle yet to remember what these looked like on the shelves.

Posted Image


ok NOW I can post my thoughts

Posted by The Xinlo , Oct 09 2014 · 143 views

these new sets look really awesome and I'm buying them all. I still have some gripes (gali's mask is still too evil looking for me but I am disliking it less with time, pohatu's feet boomerangs seem like an afterthought, onua's hulkness isn't doing it for me and neither is kopaka's bulk. I always saw him as being lean and mean... but oh well.) but overall I am very excited. I'm actually loving lewa so muc which is weird 'causehis mask is probably the furthest from the original but yeah.

also the return of clone sets is a ripoff, but it's a nostalgic one and I'm fine with it lol



Posted by The Xinlo , Sep 28 2014 · 176 views

So yeah I haven't made an entry about them yet, so because of today's thingy, I will pass judgement.

Edit: Remember not to discuss leaked images.

...right. judgement redacted until whenever


Toa Mata

Posted by The Xinlo , Sep 14 2014 · 258 views

me and my good buddy Takal were debating earlier about the difference between Earth and Stone elements, and we came to a disturbing discovery:

earth and stone are basically the same (bye Onua)

Gali can heat water (she did so in one of the early comic issues, forget which) which means she can also freeze it (bye Kopaka)

following the same logic, Pohatu should be able to heat rock to create magma, and by extension, flames (this would be difficult I'd imagine, and nowhere near as practical as Tahu's fire abilities, but it still makes him redundant)

and Gali could also control air in a roundabout way by evaporating water or simply focusing on the moisture in the air to much the same effect as Lewa's abilities. Coupled with a Kakama for making tornadoes and you're good to go

So that's Kopaka and Onua rendered useless and Tahu and Lewa maybe handy to have around for a shortcut to certain abilities, but the gist of it is Gali and Pohatu could easily and practically be the whole team for 90% of the circumstances they were put in. They're also the only two who get along, so we ditch the angst as well.

Bam. Perfect harmony in a Toa team at last, and a perfect gender ratio. We have fixed Bionicle, my friends.
