  1. There are a lot I can think of, but Miserix getting turned into a living portrait strikes me as a pretty messed up example. The lack of explanation or build-up was what made it so startling. Just, "Teridax is a god. This is how reality works now."
  2. Maybe check out Marvel Heroic Roleplaying. It's parent system is called Cortex (never played that though, just MHR). There is a lot of overlap between Marvel powers and BIONICLE powers already, and it's extremely quick and easy to re-skin the Marvel characters with a BIONICLE coat of paint. The game doesn't sweat the details so there aren't a lot of hard numbers to keep track of (eg. how much characters can lift, how fast they can run, etc.). It's designed to have the feel of a comic book, and has some simple mechanics that encourage people to get in character (using your characters' flaws earns you "Plot Points," the currency of the game). It also has something called the Doom Pool, which slowly grows as the players roll 1's, and allows the DM to increase the danger level in each scene (splitting the players up, introducing new enemies, activating certain character weaknesses, etc.). The basics are simple enough to get the hang of: decide what you want to do, pick a dice from each category on your character sheet that fits the action, roll your dice, pick 2 for the total and 1 for your effect, compare to see who wins (it's the die size of your effect die that matters, not the number you roll with it). One interesting note is that the d12 is the highest die and the game doesn't use d20's. I actually whipped up some character sheets for the Toa Mata a while back that I never got around to posting on BZP. They're attached below. Never made any enemies but they'd be easy enough to figure out. An example character sheet for something like a Nui-Rama or (swarm of them) would be something like: Example: Nui-Rama Affiliations: Solo d4 / Buddy 2d6 / Team 3d8 Distinctions: "Minion of Makuta", "Swarm Insect" Power Sets: "Great Fly" Swarm d8, Grab d6 SFX: Dangerous. Step back the highest die in your attack action pool to add a d6 and step up stress inflicted. Limit: Infected Mask. Shut down "Great Fly" power set to step up an existing doom die or add 1d6 to the doom pool. Activate a player opportunity to recover the power set. Specialties: Combat Expert d8 Seems like you have some good suggestions from other people on here, but message me if you're interested and I can help you with the rules and stuff if you need it. There are also some good tutorials out there on YouTube that can teach you how to play in a short amount of time. Gali.pdf Kopaka.pdf Lewa.pdf Onua.pdf Pohatu.pdf Tahu.pdf
  3. I think it makes sense for a potential reboot to stick to what few familiar heroes people may already know from BIONICLE: Tahu, Kopaka, Gali, etc. As we saw in the 2015 reboot, pretty much anything beyond the core six and Makuta got scrapped. I would love it if the next reboot brought back the Inika though, I thought their personalities were more interesting than the Toa Nuva's.
  4. These are amazing. You made them instantly recognizable as the characters they're supposed to represent from the game. Great job fusing the Technic and System elements in a way that seems natural. The construction of the torsos is especially impressive, with the way the angular pieces create the flowing shape of the robes. If I had to try and improve anything, I might try and think of another way to do Scorpion's upper arms. They seem just a bit gappy compared to the rest of him, and the shoulders sag just a bit compared to his chest. Other than that, love 'em, especially the little details like Scorpion's throwing knife. Nice custom Sektor too.
  5. Love the original color scheme and ball floating effect. Looks like it could be an official BIONICLE set which is always a plus in my book. Good job.
  6. Looks awesome. I like the color scheme and general sleekness. You did a good job of leaving few if any gaps in the build, and while he looks thin, he doesn't look fragile. I like the armored look of the chest and back and the use of the Inika shoulder plates for his calves. The navy/purple/gunmetal color scheme is pretty original too-- the only thing that sticks out is a few red/tan pins here and there. Maybe think about giving him a more customized head too, since every other part of him is so original. Nice job.
  7. I like the flared crest around the head, it reminds me of a dilophosaurus (sp?) or perhaps a bearded dragon. You did a good job matching that aesthetic with the weapon as well as the general look of the torso and feet. I like the use of the Great Matatu as his knees. He sorta looks like the official Karzahni set, wonder if that was intentional seeing as they're both tyrant-like characters? Pretty cool how you got the Zamor sphere to serve as the eye-- must have been tricky. Nice work.
  8. Nope, as it turns out my sign-up didn't go through. Not a problem though, just found out I'm moving and probably won't have time to write. Looking forward to reading all the stories!
  9. Anyone else still waiting on a prompt? Haven't gotten mine yet and I'm itching to write.
  10. Been looking forward to another one of these. Count me in.
  11. Awesome. I love the scaly, cracked look in the middle where the two masks have fused together. It's cool how there is a slight mix of gold and black in the middle. The battle-damaged Avohkii is great too. I wish they had made parts like this back in the heyday of G1. Nice work.
  12. Only played the game a handful of times, but the character designs are cool and original enough to where I would consider getting some. I could see some really interesting builds and new pieces showing up in these, so I hope it works out. Might even open the door for more video game-licensed sets in the future, something myself and a lot of others have wanted for a long time.
  13. Those Batman sets are pretty sweet. I believe the Batman minifig in the Talon set is the Thrasher Suit, something I've wanted in LEGO for a while now. Everything else is cool too. Batwoman and a blue mohawk piece on Brother Eye? Remote control Batmobile?? Heck yeah.
  14. I would definitely be game to do this again in 2018. Had a lot of fun dusting off the ol' writing muscles and reading everyone else's creations.
