Why, hello there! My name is FrozenPancake_, and this is my About Me page!
I am a TFOL with Asperger's Syndrome. For those of you who don't know, Asperger's Syndrome is a high-functioning form of autism. We Aspies can function just as well as neurotypicals in most areas, but we are typically awkward in social situations and when communicating, so it's hard to do so effectively. Folks with Asperger's also tend to have all-absorbing interests in specific topics. (And then we tend to ramble on and on about said topics...)
So, you're probably curious as to how I got into Bionicle. Well, I got Skrall for Christmas in 2008. I built the thing (but it was really frustrating because my fine motor skills weren't very good in those days), and I loved it. (My favorite thing was the buzzsaw shield.) I went on to the Bionicle website, and I subsequently became enamored with the sets and story. Of course, that led to more collecting. I was disappointed when it ended in 2010, but I moved on to Hero Factory. Through the past few years, I collected HF, Ninjago, and Chima on and off, and I forgot about Bionicle and eventually went through the 'dark age' that most Lego fans go through at some point. Then, the LEGO Movie happened, sparking my interest again. I was checking out some stuff about it on YouTube, when I came across a mysterious video titled: "BIONICLE 2015 sets (maybe) leaked?" I thought, "Whoa, Bionicle could return? Aw man, that's sweet! I loved those things! They're gonna be even cooler in CCBS!" I had become a fan once again. I watched tons of videos on YouTube, and I particularly enjoyed "The Chronicles of Jaller". (Funniest BioTube series ever...) I also rebuilt my collection out of nostalgia and bought a couple G1 sets off of BrickLink. Then, January 2015 came around. I bought Tahu, Lewa, Kopaka, and Pohatu to kick things off. Keeping with most folks' tradition, I built Tahu first. (And then I bought all the other sets later.) That's it for how I got into Bionicle (twice).
