The story's a lot more likely to come back if the toy line does. Even with difficulties in his personal life, Greg Farshtey still has time to write, but so far a lot of that writing has gone towards work he's actually getting paid for, like the Ninjago, Hero Factory, and Chima books.Meh. Im not to fussed if it doesnt come back. The story however I want to keep going
Well, yes, but we never had any reason to doubt that. If they were considering it completely dead they would have simply told us that, unless of course they wanted to mislead us, but if that were the case they could just as easily be misleading us now. Basically this is the same sort of generic PR response we've gotten to every question about BIONICLE returning, albeit with the original question phrased differently. Specifically, the phrasing "Can you confirm that BIONICLE is never coming back?" makes the question impossible to answer with a "yes" since it requires certainty of TLG's plans from now until the end of time, so it is an even less meaningful answer than some of the previous answers we've gotten, and the same answer that you'd probably get if you asked the same question about Fabuland or the LEGO monorail system.
It does mean that Lego arent calling it dead completely
As much as a lot of people like the story of BIONICLE more than the sets, the story would never have existed if not for the sets, and the sets were always the main factor moving it forward. Part of why I haven't taken an interest in post-Journey's End plotlines from the serials, other than that all the plotlines I really cared about have already been wrapped up, is that without the sets guiding the story it ends up feeling somewhat aimless. So for me, it might very easily take a full return of the theme to get me interested again.
