To set the scene, your in the middle of the night at the fire detector starts to beep. You get up out of bed to see the fire raging at your door. For arguments sake, you have all the Bionicleyou own stood up on a shelf, also any MOCs that you may or may not own. You have the time to grab but one of your buddies from your shelf before performing a running jump through your window and landing on a conveniently placed mattress, then sit back ant watch your home crumble to the ground in a pile of ash.

 

Who do you pick?

 

I Pick Tahu Nuva because he is my first and one of my only original Bionicle left.

The third option is a bit ... extreme.
 
Anyway, in this highly contrived scenario, I would choose the first option, and pick my MOC Elixia (who actually is in my bedroom anyway).

It's so hard to choose, but I'd grab my Gahlok, as it was my first set and I just recently found her missing feet and restored her to her full glory. I'm so attached to it that I keep accidentally referring to it as a lady rather than an it :P

If I got anything, I'd probably grab my twin brother's New York Comic Con minifigs. They're small enough to snag without hindering my escape and, in the event that our entire collection was destroyed, they're worth enough that we could conceivably sell them to start rebuilding a Lego collection.

If I were being pragmatic, Toa Mata Nui (Even the second-hand prices are ridiculous, it would be expensive to rebuy) .

If I were being sentimental though, probably Gali Mata. As she was my first set and also looks cool.

I'd have to go with Pohatu Mata. I would have picked Toa Vakama instead, but I know it'd be harder to find another Pohatu in as good condition as mine.

At some point you realize that you are but a speck in the Universe.

That you time in this worlds is but a blink.

You see the whole of reality as it unfolds before you.

You try to see how far you can reach, and it’s not that far past your face.

But then you come back from the brink.

You hold them in your arms again.

And you know that you are where their world begins.

You are their rock.

If my family was already safely out the building, important items like laptop and other valuables recovered, and I still had some spare time before I dying in the smoke, I would take my Gali canister with me. At the same time I would get Gali and her complete Kanohi set, since they are all packed together. My first set, lots of sentimental value and stuff. Still, it's not high on the list of priorities when threatened by a life or death situation.

Obviously more important things than Bionicle etc etc etc, but seeing as this is just a game, then probably Takadox, as he was always my favourite set. (Plus he glows in the dark, giving me a handy torch with which to navigate the dangerous streets of London at night :P )

Even in this fictitious scenario I can't imagine I'd give my Bionicle a thought. I'd probably just try to grab all my figmas (those things were expensive!) and my laptop and my book bag (which has my 3DS and binder full of important things) and a couple of important books, probably my pets and...let's...let's just say I would die before I even gathered half the stuff I need.

 

On a less realistic note, I'd probably take my Toxic Reapa (bionicle shmonicle) or, like, the Thornatus V9? They're really the only constraction things I still have assembled, besides the Skopio XV-1. And even though this scenario says that I have all my stuff out on display (I'm guessing to allow you to take your favorite set that you might have disassembled) the only reason these guys are still assembled is because I like them enough to never have taken them apart. (The Skopio is mostly still around because taking it apart sounds long and boring and who's got the time)
