Well, as far as I can tell, no children are actually following the new storyline of Hero Factory, and as I said before, they have two other themes with simpler stories, Ninjago and Chima. With this, added to the fact that they are now running consecutive action figure lines, the end of Bionicle just seems like it was aimless to me.
The Hero Factory story is so simple and uninteresting that most of its fans (younger kids) don't even care to follow the story, I would presume.
That makes sense in TFOL logic, but more than likely, those kids probably wouldn't care about the story either way, BIONICLE or Hero Factory. If they don't have cable then they can't even really follow the story anyway, unless they know about and have the money to get the DVDs.
Hero Factory differs from BIONICLE primarily in that story takes second place to sets, which is the part of BIONICLE's legacy that it carries on. Ninjago and Chima take up BIONICLE's mantle as far as story goes.
