How Much Of Bionicle Is Left?

Recommended Posts

Bionicle was going great, but then Lego took it off, possibly because the decline 4th movie, where they didn't even use the bionicle theme song .( No offense to people who liked it). Lego is such a large company, how will this leave bionicle? They haven't changed the site for quite a while, and the 4th movie left at least me dissapointed.How do you think this will affect bionicle?

Well, I hope that it goes on. It was probably one of the best storylines Lego ever created.

Correction: it was the best storyline Lego ever created. But how much of Bionicle is left? Well, Bionicle is, and forever will be, beholden in the hearts of all its fans. Although its story may have ended, it's legacy has not, as evidenced by the continued existence of this very site.-don't touch my pocket protector

I'm assuming that in five to ten years they'll bring it back in a movie with lots of explosions and babes, like what happened with Transformers.

All ten years are left in our memories (and our reference resources, your comic and book and movie collections, and set collections, etc.). :) Just because these things have already come out doesn't make them go away. ^_^ Treasure 'em.

At this point it's unrealistic to expect the story to continue until Lego brings the sets back. However, we can hope for an open ending--this chapter of the story comes to an end, but it can be expected to continue later on. Kinda like what happened in 2003 and 2005, but with everyone fulfilling their destinies (only if known).

I wouldn't say you could acuse lego of ever ruining it, they're responsible for what it is, if it's not to your taste, they'll adapt it. Assuming they continue with it in the far future of course...

I'm not accusing Lego, but ZippyWharrgarbl might be right.It seems like that's what people are doing to every good movie lately.

I think it's safe to assume that the above statement is correct. Then again, I recall Greg once responding to a question with, "It's never safe to assume anything with me."As for BIONICLE, I say the same as the others. It's legacy lives on in all of us, and one day, we all hope, it will return, bigger and brighter than ever!signoffffff.png

Ah. I see you all are finally acknowledging that the web serials are OVER. Forever. It's the cold, hard truth; no sets, no story.Of course, Lego could bring the franchise back somewhere down the line, but it won't be a direct continuation of the original story at all. Maybe distantly related somehow. Also, so the kids can follow it, it'll be much simpler plot-wise, probably more like Ninjago. Also, they'll probably use the shell-and-socket system (assuming it's still around)... Bionicle II, if it happens, will probably be a lot like Hero Factory.I think this topic belongs in General Discussion.

So, just because Greg has been extremely busy for the past six months because his wife had a baby, you think he has totally abandoned the fans and the BIONICLE story forever? Give the guy a break. Family is much more important than the plot line of a toy line.I believe that it will take a while, but the serials will again be updated. I don't believe that we'll be getting any new serials after the current ones wrap up.

Well said, and I hope when he's done with the serials, Greg passes the responsibility of the Bionicle story onto the fans.

LEGO won't be updating the website because BIONICLE is a dead franchise, and LEGO has moved on with Hero Factory. LEGO will need to update their policy to allow employees to speak to their fans. Greg Farshtey has become busy now that he has a daughter, and he needs to obtain some sort of social license. BIONICLE has pretty much come to a stop.

For now.

We could create websites about Bionicle.

IMO, there are already way too many of those. What we need is one unifying website to bring all the official content together and link to all the other existing sites. Then maybe another website for new fan-based content, instead of 4.
Good point. Does anyone have any websites in mind?

Top: do you really want Bionicle to end on this incomplete note?Bottom: I'm confused. You mean a website to act as the unifying website where everything is? I haven't seen one, except for maybe BS01, but that is a wiki, not just straight content all unified in a central, easy to find structure.

I would say at this point the current serials are likely to be the last official story materials we get; the line's been over for some time now, and Greg has other projects. Further, LEGO's new policies on employees interacting with fan forums do put a bit of a damper on any non-serial story Greg could put out.

I'm extremely surprised that the universe has continued to expand it's lore so long after it ceased being profitable for the company. Still I think a resurrection for such an established franchise isn't impossible given it could be cheaper than creating a new licence from scratch. :)

I have been writing a fanfic series of my own character, it's been going on for the last five or so years, I think its similar to what Greg has going on, he's got other things happening, I mean I have found time to write, but when you're trying to work, and add other things to life, Greg having a kid, and my weekend life, things get hectic, I for one believe that there will be more updates, but like when I do write, it might just be small ideas every few days that will have to be fleshed out when he has the time.

I believe that bionicle Isn't quite dead.... just becoming somewhat more and more... err... misplaced? I think its really a Bruce almighty moment where Bruce steps in front of the "light" and get's hit with an 18 wheeler. Things were going south, and Lego was hoping that the 4th film was its Light, unfortunately it turned out to be more akin to getting hit with several tons of steel, rubber, and hairy trucker. Wait, this analogy started off trying to prove a point, I've proved myself wrong, sorry folks! Bionicle's dying! but I'ma go and see if I can't get my comic collection back from Toa of Nerds! peace

I'd say there's plenty of Bionicle to enjoy still, considering the storyline. As long as there's still plenty to discuss, write about, draw, and simply reminisce about, then Bionicle in several technicalities isn't dead. It will keep on expanding as long as Greg keeps his devotion to Bionicle, no doubt.


On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground

And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived

 

On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground

Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight

 

I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained

And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you

 

Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away

And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone

 

Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands

Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey

 

I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in

I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away

 

slipped away...

Hopefully we'll see some Bionicle references. Vezon has some potential there. I would also be happy if the upcoming super heroes game has Piraka graffiti hidden somewhere...

There's a lot of room for storyline expansion. The story isn't the constraint on Bionicle, it's Greg's time and Lego's money that is.How much of it is left? Storywise, there's a bunch of mysteries that haven't been resolved and plot lines that aren't tied up. Even if those were tied up, there is still plenty of room for expansion. They are on a giant planet. Things happen. There could be a whole lot more, if those on earth wanted it to be.

Wow. This topic just made me remember what Bionicle was all about. It wasn't because it had a great storyline and toys (don't get me wrong, it definitely had that), but it was because we all liked it and put so much into it. Building sets and sharing them and writing fanfics, that's all part of it too. I almost forgot.

Bionicle ended in 2010 as all thing is going to end someday. You'll have to agree that's was not easy for Greg to write all those stories. He and LEGO presented us exellent franchise that pleased us all those 10 years. About 4th movie? yeah it's amm....little childlish, that previous 3. But it has some pros as well. It's graphic and cgi imaginery. They made characters look just like real world sets.

There are zillions of possibilities for Bionicle, but the most likely thing is that we're just going to get all the stories wrapped up and all the plot holes filled in, and then Splat, Whizz, Bang, done.
