The Red Star's resurrection capabilities, alternate universes galore, the complete squandering of the potential of the story for The Legend Reborn and Spherus Magna lore. Oh, and the multitudes of MU elements.

 

Bah-humbug!

 

But the TLR part I agree with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The silliest thing of Bionicle was in one commercial just one.....
Maktudi the Bionic Man.

 
To be fair, they were making fun of the fact that parents couldn't remember the names of any of the characters.
That is sadly true in real life.

 

 

 

Dude, my parents.... My dad specifically didn't give a rats-back about the names half the time, and he decided to call the Polyp Sea Squids 'Snot Rockets'...

 

Also sorry I couldn't copy the whole quote intact, BZP was acting stupid and replaced the last quote with the info of the first in this post.

Yeah, in your dad's defense, they really do look more like boogers than squids.

I just looked up Maktudi/Maktuti/McTooty The Bionic Man and I have to say the commercial is brilliant.

 

BIONICLE should've used more self irony and meta humor in its promotion.

I just thought of something pretty silly: Why do a building contest for the Piraka fusion (Vezok+Reidak)? It's not necessary to do that. We could've have instructions on combining Vezok and Reidak into the Fusion instead. Why making him look like that he doesn't look like a fusion of Vezok and Reidak much? I mean, a skull-faced guy with yellow-and-blue-colored armor and a disk-like tip on the an awfully-long tail?

Anyway, I agree with you guys about Sea Squids looking like boogers. Perhaps they should be called "Sea Boogers". Lol.:P Man, why call them Sea "Squids" when they look more like boogers, like you said? Silly, and kinda bothers me. I think they should've been called "Sea Leeches" or "Squid Leeches" in my opinion.

Leeches actually totally works. I know they were called "Polyps" in Europe, which I think is a type of coral. But Leeches actually fits so well. They look like them, and they're scary.

Yeah, especially when you consider the Piraka combiner models that lacked even the storyline significance of the Rahi from the previous year. Or even put Irnakk or Umbra there in place of or in addition to their prior appearances to give them a little more validity as sets.

Also in Bionicle Legends #2 I think, the whole plot in Kharzani is just an elaborate excuse for the sets not having their respective matoran's masks, It's a cool subplot, but I find it a tad silly

the fact that lego ended g1 just before mata nui and his friends were going to go on a big adventure. they could have just done another wave giving the story a proper ending that was satisfying but no we got the stars and some big battle that to be honest made no sense anyway

You may be right on the money there. The saddest thing was the so-called payoff: they act like Karzahni's going to be a serious threat to the universe and he ends up getting his butt kicked by Teridax, captured by the Order of Mata Nui, and then done in by Velika. Not silly so much as sad.

Toa Inika heads. Mainly because they were advertised as being glow in the dark (how cool would that have been, pitch blackness, and all you see of the heroes and villains were glowing eyes and mouths), and because you couldn't swap out their masks like the previous years.

The Bohrok coming from Av-Matoran. Aside from winking back at the fact that the Bahrag said the Toa were related to the Bohrok, this wasn't important and didn't change anything. Plus, the Bohrok are supposed to be nearly limitless to get their job done as quickly as they can. How could there be enough Av-Matoran to satisfy the need for an army of destructive robots? The Bohrok also had deployed and returned to slumber several times, I would assume, over the course of their existence. What is the point of adding to their number as they go? Sure, maybe some get destroyed and/or damaged during their missions, but simply replacing them with sapient Matoran seems like such an overly complicated method of doing things as opposed to maybe wiring the Bohrok Va to also function as mechanics. Heck, let them use their Krana as added brain power if that's necessary. 

 

(If I'm wrong about any of my postulations, let me know)

Gonna have to disagree with this one. This was one of the most epic plot revelations of any series that I can think of off the top of my head. it's what tied the entire bionicle story together really.

I also disagree; the "giant robot" reveal sounds kind of stupid when you summarize it in a single sentence, but regardless of BIONICLE's declining quality in other regards, the big reveal was excellently conceived and executed. I do believe someone on BZPower figured it out a few months before the official reveal, but due to how much time had passed and how many hints LEGO had been dropping over the years, that ultimately made its confirmation feel very fulfilling as a member of a fanbase that figured it out, rather than spoiled.

The Red Star.
I like it's enigmatic presence in the early years, but it's later uses utterly confused me and at times got under my skin. What a strange plot device it became.
The alternate universes with Takanuva, while interesting, seemed to jump about too much just for the sake of utilising the Olmak in some fashion. 
The next would be my love/hate relationship with the revelation of Mata Nui being a giant robot. I like the idea, and I like where they were going with the idea, but I feel its execution in the end was underwhelming. It felt like it was somehow competing for attention with the Spherus Magna Glatorian shenanigans. 
As best as I can remember on the spot, those are the points that gripe with me the most.

Here's another thing: the fact that all the events from 2001-2010 (2004-2005 excluded) has happened in one year. Okay, we do not know how long a Bionicle year is; ok, maybe matoran and other creatures don't undergo the same psychological stress that we do...but really? All the great stuff happens in one year? Metru Nui is rebuilt in less than a year? There are 100.000+ years of virtually nothing worth mentioning?

I second this. I always assumed that the Toa Mata's quest for all of their masks took several months and the books/other sources gave us the important snippets when they actually find said masks. I always thought there were interim periods between events, which would have buffed out the period from the Mata's arrival on Mata Nui to the activation of the Codrex to several years, especially with all the traveling and scavenger hunting that the story was full of.

 

:kakama:

 

 

To be honest, my brain literally just ignores the "one year" idea whenever I read the books or comics. It makes no sense. It makes more sense for each "year" to have lasted almost a year, for some of them at least. 01-03 definitely should've lasted at least 2 years, Voya Nui was easily six months or more, by the time the Nuva traveled there, Jaller and co. traveled there, became Toa, and all the rest. 07 probably took place over a relatively short period of time, but the events of 08 and the "Destiny War" must've lasted at least a year or longer. The entire premise of the whole series only taking place in one year is ludicrous.

The whole one year thing is so weird, especially when Makuta himself says in the first Rahkshi comic that the events of MNOG were "years ago".
