I look forward to seeing how this develops. I'm glad to see BIONICLE coming around again... my wallet, not so much.

Looks kind of Incan to me, which would be an interesting aesthetic choice. I hope it's the Mask of Creation - so far, the story hasn't done justice to Artahka.

How does that confirm anything of the sort? Rebooting the series wouldn't mean automatically rejecting any new ideas or designs. A reboot could take the series in whatever direction the writers want it to, which includes the possibility of masks, creatures, and concepts that might never have existed in classic BIONICLE.


You're right, maybe it's not confirmed. But I don't think they would do a reboot without some tie to the past storyline. A golden Kanohi mask wasn't introduced until 2003 (and this is in no way the Avohkii) and before that the conflict was all about the creatures of the island. It wouldn't make any sense to fully rewrite the story and only keep the six Toa the same. I think that a continuation is more likely here.

 

The whole point of a reboot is to sever it from the previous storyline and start new. At that point they can do whatever they want - borrow characters and story elements from the previous iteration, or just make something completely different.

 

What you seem to be talking about is a soft reboot, where the previous story is not discarded, but is also not necessarily relevant to the new story. This allows new fans to get on board without feeling like they need to catch up on years of story, but also allows longtime fans to enjoy it as a continuation.

 

I'm just hoping, if this is indeed the NYCC reveal, that we get some clarification on what the situation here is. Or if it's no longer taboo, see if Greg can fill fans in on what the deal is.

I prefer the excitement now rather than worrying about disappointment later that would be overshadowed by whatever we do actually get. :P If it's not as cool it'll be disappointing anyway and if it is cool then we'll have that to be happy over instead. Personally I have a good feeling about what they've got in store. :)

Edit: this is directed at ET - on mobile so formatting quotes is a bit hard. :P

Not any more than you could before today. As you said, those are still leaks and the fact that we now know BIONICLE is indeed returning does not change anything about those. If something about the old images was not allowed yesterday, it still isn't today. Of course you're free to speculate as wildly as you want about this new image.

Wow, my first day back from my long hiatus and this happens! :P

 

Anyway, I have complete faith in Lego that this'll be good. Plus, I think it'll be a reboot in order to have the most fresh story as possible. Though I do think that they'll use original story elements and take them in a new direction (example: six Toa on the island of Mata Nui need to defeat Makuta. Nothing more than that). That's about as fresh as it gets.

I would welcome a change to the Kanohi powers for the Toa. To me, Gali's Mask of Water Breathing in 2008 was kind of getting old in terms of the ability. I would love to see new masks, designs, and abilities (even better abilities than Life, Time, and Creation...).

Ah, nice. I could still have looked for that one but I didn't bother as obviously it wouldn't show us more than the image itself, if anything, the animation would make it harder to see things. Thanks for finding and posting it anyway!

I'm thinking the mask is the Ignika, it looks an awful lot like the old concept sketches, and the top reminds me a lot of the old Matoran heads. On the other hand, I doubt they'de be so quick to bring Mata Nui back into the story. 

I also doubt that the mask of creation will ever be portrayed in a set. The mask was described as if it were creation embodied, something impossible even for Lego to portray physically.

Fair enough. Heck, I might have even fallen into my own trap by being convinced it's a reboot or will generally disregard past events, so might be a tad hypocritical. :P

 

Whatever it is, at least I like the look haha.

Looks like a crown of a tyrant king or something.

What if new Bionicle takes place in the Melding universe? They wouldn't have to do a reboot, because it is another universe to be explored! And Vultraz is currently in the Melding universe- he could be a king for all we know! The similarities between "The Mask" and the Vultraz with Kini-Nui on top are astounding!

I am pretty sure not even Greg Farshtey himself could persuade them to delve deeper into such an obscure universe.

 

But what about the possibility of a reboot? What would people think of that? Would you prefer a reboot of BIONICLE or a continuation? Personally, I think a continuation with a timeskip would be the best.
