You have to choose somebody who has not already been active on BZPower... I don't want to hear a lot of people say they just want Greg Farshtey back, even though I think most of us agree on that point.
You are not obligated to pick someone who is allowed to interact with minors as part of their work for LEGO. I don't want to see arguments about who can or can't join BZPower, but rather a civil discussion of who you'd like to join. If it helps, you can pretend that BZPower is an AFOL site and that everyone here is over 18 for the sake of argument.
Let me start with a list of suggestions for those of you who don't know of many LEGO employees
- Mark Stafford: Designer of sci-fi vehicles and mecha for lots of themes in the past decade. His sets can be seen here. Was an AFOL before working for LEGO.
- Jamie Berard: LEGO Creator and Direct-to-Consumer (LEGO Exclusive) designer. He is credited for creating the Modular Buildings line as well as the Emerald Knight, among other sets. Was an AFOL before working for LEGO.
- Christoffer Raundahl: Has been a designer for LEGO action figure themes since the beginning of the Throwbots/Slizer theme, and is one of the inventors of the Hero Factory 2.0 building system. Sets he helped design include Toa Mata Tahu and Kopaka, the Bohrok, and Toa Mahri Kongu and Hewkii.
- Christian Faber: ADVANCE Art Director who contributed heavily to the BIONICLE mythos from the very beginning. You can read about many of his contributions on his blog, Faber Files.
- Carlos D'Anda: Freelance comic artist who illustrated the first nine BIONICLE comics, the Hero Factory comic covers, and a Hero Factory promotional comic.
- Paul Lee: An AFOL and comic artist for the LEGO Magazines. Also illustrated the third LEGO Ninjago graphic novel.
- Astrid Graabaek: LEGO Creator, Direct-to-Consumer, and Friends designer. One of her designs most loved by AFOLs is the recent Town Hall from the Modular Buildings series.
- Adam Grabowski: Designer for various LEGO play themes and licensed themes. One of his most stellar recent designs is the Haunted House from the Monster Fighters and LEGO Direct-to-Consumer lines. His sets can be seen here.
- Cathy Hapka: A freelance author who worked on the first three books in the BIONICLE Chronicles series as well as the Mask of Light novelization. She also is the author of the LEGO Friends chapter books due for release next year.
These are just a handful of designers I thought might be of interest to BZPower members, but feel free to choose anyone not on this list! You can learn about a lot of people who contributed to the BIONICLE and Hero Factory themes at BIONICLEsector01 and HEROsector01.
My own personal choice would probably be either Christian Faber or Christoffer Raundahl. Both are brilliant designers with a huge portfolio of quality work for BIONICLE and Hero Factory. I think BIONICLE and Hero Factory fans, myself included, could learn a lot from them about the human effort and imagination that went into these themes!
