got the Protectors of Earth and Stone

the Earth one is a really solid set well worthy of accompanying Onua

the Stone one is pretty lame in comparison, and no one will ever be able to convince me that burnt orange and transparent neon lime green is in any way a good color scheme, especially when blurry leaked images actually made them look more like the flatter transparent yellow


christmas haul: abridged edition

The new bonkles sets didn't come out before Christmas where I live, which was kind of a shame. Did pretty well otherwise, though. Got a good amount of stuff, but I'll just list the stuff people are more likely to care about:

-both the Toa Hagah
-Flain, Vulk, and Zaptor, completing my Mixels collection for now
-two Star Wars sets I wanted just for the astromech minifigs
-an unopened mask pack containing a blue Akaku and lime green Rau (neither of which I had before today)
-two bonkles pens: the Tahu one and a limited edition one I had never heard of, which is pretty neat
-this thing

every now and then I like to take my Mixels apart and use them for what they were meant to be used for

turned out pretty decent, I think

Honestly I was kinda torn about writing this because obviously I'm going to be shot down, but I really want to get this off my chest.

I don't WANT Bionicle to return.

I know, it's likely not going to get the most positive feedback on a bonkles forum, but everything about this just feels... wrong.

First off, if this happens, I shudder at the thought of the reactions. Primarily those of the bring-back-bonkles crowd- the whiniest, most obnoxious part of the fandom, now celebrating and dancing on Hero Factory's grave because they "won" by throwing temper tantrums over a toy line ending and LEGO took notice. I doubt that was the case. Besides, what are they going to do once New Bonkles ends?

And then there's Hero Factory. I'm not calling it flawless- it was pretty far from that. Unresolved cliffhangers, a highly groanworthy TV program (honestly, can we even call it a show?), and, of course, the now-infamous Nathan Evo scene where he almost killed a bunch of babies just because one member of their species happened to be a criminal.

That being said, Invasion from Below is possibly the worst place for the series to end- with an ending slopped together in the last twelve hours of production featuring the complete genocide of a species and yet another unresolved cliffhanger. I have to admit this doesn't really have much to do with bonkles, but if we could see at least one more Hero Factory wave that somewhat resembled an ending before bonkles' triumphant return or whatever the next constraction line is comes out, that'd be a lot better than what we have now. Unfortunately, given LEGO's track record, I sincerely doubt that'll happen.

And lastly, possibly the biggest reason I don't want bonkles returning is because if it returns, it'll be, well, bonkles. Getting anything resembling 2001-2004 or any other period when bonkles was great is highly unlikely, and we'll likely get something more like the ending years of bonkles when the storyline was extra convoluted and Farshtey favoritism ran rampant. I don't know- the story serials were my least favorite part of bonkles.

However, I will admit this: I will gladly accept bonkles' return if these conditions are followed:

1. The Toa Mata/Nuva return, and resemble the Toa Mata/Nuva
2. The storyline gives us some look at the story through the Matoran's point of view and doesn't portray them as worthless objects the Toa need to defend (assuming New Bonkles has Toa and Matoran)
3. The Piraka return, because from any perspective, ironic or otherwise, they were a lot better than that big gold thing from the serials

(addendum, actually, I'll just lock this entry because I don't feel like dealing with fallout. if a staff member informs me that for some reason this entry needs to be removed, I will gladly do so. otherwise, I'm sticking with my thoughts here)
