All the rowboats, in the paintings
They keep trying to row away
And the captains' worried faces
Stay contorted and staring at the waves
They keep hanging in their golden frames
For forever, forever and a day
All the rowboats, in oil paintings
They keep trying to row away, row away

More so than any line before it, BIONICLE took both the infant constraction genre and LEGO as a whole further. What began as something little better than Roboriders evolved into the highly modifiable and articulatory builds of the later Inika-style sets. I think it did more to further constraction, and thus the entire LEGO system, than any other line before it and probably more than any line that came after it ever will - including Hero Factory.

The story sucked me in with the complex mythology and worldbuilding. I had found the story in previous LEGO themes lacking, particularly in the case of Roboriders. I also loved the sets, although it wouldn't be until years later that I would obtain the best of these early sets, those being the Rahi. I discovered BZPower in around 2003, and finally joined in 2006.
Throughout my time as a BIONICLE fan my brothers and I bought every canister set. Aanchir got the red and white ones, I the green and brown ones, and Meiko the blue and black ones. We also got most of the smaller and larger sets, although sometimes those were harder to divvy up equally!
I liked most every aspect of the BIONICLE theme, and I owe it for carrying me through my "dark ages" (that time during a LEGO fan's teens when they begin to lose interest in LEGO). Without BIONICLE, I might have lost sight of my childhood dream to work for LEGO when I grew up!

Needless to say, I admired the ways the sets had improved on designs in Throwbots and Roboriders (it was nice to have sets that didn't rely on tiresome worm gears for their functionality). The story also proved compelling when I started to learn about that in greater depth.
When Hero Factory came around, I saw the advantages of it, but having grown older it didn't have the same "tug". But as soon as the new building system showed up, I took another gamble by buying a set, and since then I have been a dedicated fan of that as well (though a bit more critical of it than I was of BIONICLE).

Ironically, the Hordika ended up being my least favorite sets.
Anyways, I think the sets are the main attraction here, but the story is a seperate entity that is equally amazing.

To answer your other question, the always-evolving story kept me enthralled, as well as the teasers for new sets on the backs of comics.

Oh, and I really liked the awesome games and movies on Bionicle.com. But mostly the story. The sets had good play value for my little brother, but the thing that hooked me was that Bionicle book my brother brought home from a book fair. The story was the thing that makes Bionicle unique, and it was a strong contributor to its greatness.

"All of the above." All the stuff that made it great. Cool designs, poseability, originality, story, mystery, you name it. Even the collectibles and stuff were fun to a degree, heh.
Pretty much this minus the poseability. I loved the sets, I loved the stories, I loved the characters, I loved the species, I loved the factions, I loved the armies, I even loved the wildlife! I just can't get enough of it!

I never make predictions, and I never will
Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling?
Posted Mar 24 2012 - 04:04 PM
What really sealed the deal for me was the disc that came in Tahu's canister. It opened up this whole mythological world for me, full of Polynesian mysticism, elemental spirits, and the religious dualism of Mata Nui vs. The Makuta. I was just fascinated, more by the aesthetic of the story than the toys themselves. The crumbling ruins of Kini-Nui wreathed in vines, the stones used to tell the creation myth of the Tohunga, and soon after that, the mysterious telescope and sundial of the MNOLG.
Though I've put BIONICLE behind me now, I still have a lot to thank it for. It still influences me in a lot of ways, mythologically, architecturally, and aesthetically.
oh, and the toys were cool and you could make them fight each other

Behold, Toa Ka'tru! Sprite made by Strack. Click picture to go to his sprite shop. Avatar by CeeCee.
It was then that everything fit together in my head. The two clawed beast. The Two Claws. The dual-claw marks. That all was easy. Then I realized something harder to grasp - because the beast was inter-phasal, it could also travel through time, to an extent. The Two Claws wasn’t fiction, it was true. There was someone else like me, in the past. I continued blinking rapidly and turned back to the beast.
“What do you want?” I demanded.
The beast stood up a bit straighter and looked directly at me. A terrifying voice came from it as it answered.
“You and the girl. Both. You are abnormalities and must be dealt with.”

In May of 2011, I saw Tarduk in my brother's room. I hadn't known of Bionicle's existence before then. I loved Tarduk because it felt like an improved version of an action figure. Sure enough, it was. After a little bit of research/figuring out what the heck Tarduk was, I came across the 2009 Glatorian, and Hero Factory, not knowing that they were seperate/had a story. I simply started collecting Hero Factory (as I didn't know of Bionicle's existence just yet [or rather, I thought Hero Factory was Bionicle]). It wasn't until September-ish that I really studied upon Bionicle, and realized how far behind I was.
That's my story haha. I can't quite tell what got me into it really, but because of my loving of Tarduk and its "improved action figure"-ness, I'd go with its play value. The story got me that much more interested (pretty much why I'm attempting to collect every set).

The main reason I stayed is...
None of the above. I stayed for the art, actually. I really liked Lego's choice to include mutiple formats, especially the comics. Also, in the early years with flash games and animation, then the movies. It was one of the inspirations for me to go into animation. The second reason was the story. It's the second reason because I liked it, but I didn't always agree with it. For all the disagreements, I stuck around becuase I wanted to know what would happen in the end. As far as sets go, I liked some of them, but I never got around to getting some of the ones I wanted, AKA Gali Mistika.

The MNOLG is where I began to know BIONICLE on its own.
Posted Apr 25 2012 - 12:21 PM
I got the blue Bohrok. I that it was cool, so I decided to check out the other sets. I started getting those, and was reading the Bionicle comics whenever they came out, so yeah..
HOLY COW!! THAT"S HOW I GOT STARTED!!!
Anyway, my parents force me to limit my purchases, and the sets alone haven't kept me interested. The story, the games, the sets, and everything else that made BIONICLE great.
Though I wouldn't be a BIONICLE fan now if it weren't for the story.
Bionifight profile Not that it's relevant.
And also, incidently, why people shouldn't be acting like Bionicle's "dead" -- it's still continuing in story form unlike just about any other line and has a very strong chance of coming back some day, so it's wisest for people to remain interested in LEGO, showing their support for HF, etc. The best way, as we've shown long ago, for Bionicle to come back, is for us to be on here showing support for HF and Bionicle at the same time, accepting both, knowing that one day HF too will lose the "new factor" and eventually Bionicle will be ready to come back.
