Bionicle as Exo-force

Recommended Posts

Okay, I know that is a click-bait title, but hear me out. One possibility if Lego decides to drop ccbs or other construction settings in the future but decided to reboot Bionicle is to do as it a Mech series (ala Exo-force) using standard the standard Lego system to build sets and specialised minifigs for the characters.

 

The rough idea is this:

 

The Matoran are a bio-mechanical race who live in peace and harmony with the world around them with their limited elemental gifts; trees growing faster as they tend them, metals forge by fuelless flames and city mounded from the mountains like children's clay. Their culture with it's myriad of blessed masks tells tales of great kings and heroes - the Toa, titans of such size they could step over hills, such strength to smash down mountains and the power to raise whole ranges with a flick of their hands. At first the Toa used their power for good, but one by one they fell to some darkness - and their war shook the world. The Matoran wear their masks to enshrine the Toas' glory, and to remember their horrors.

 

However a new evil has arisen - great monsters called the Rahkshi, arising from the shadows of night and eclipse to destroy everything the Matoran have worked for. Worst, a cult calling itself the 'Brotherhood of Makuta' is predicting these attacks with startling accuracy and is using this knowledge to grow their power base.

 

6 Matoran use the chaos to go on an expedition through a forbidden desert to a ruined citadel. Tahu, a prince who seeks the chance for a warrior's life; Gali, a explorer who lost everything to a rahkshi; Pohatu, a wounded Kolhii star with knowledge of the deserts; Kopaka, a ranger and loner; Onua, an ageing soldier and teacher; and Lewa, a young acrobat seeking adventure. Within the ruins they find golden masks; giving them power over ancient warmachines and ascending them to the rank of Toa.

 

 

So what did you guys think?

That's actually a really cool concept that I would love to see brought to life. Everything about it sounds absolutely perfect: simple enough to be easy for a young audience, and yet intricate enough that I imagine the older crowd would jump right into it. Hats off to you and your wonderful idea!

It's a nifty concept for a fanfic, though as a hypothetical reboot I think it's far enough from the core Bionicle concept that at that point it might be better to just turn it into a totally new IP. Trying to make it function as a Bionicle reboot feels kind of like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole (or a round pin in a cross-shaped hole, as it were).

Me: This is gonna be a terrible idea, isn't it?

Like...this is actually what G3 needs. It's a fresh interpretation of Bionicle with new ideas that legitimately mix it up. The only thing that should be changed is that Toa should be able to alter between their "giant" form and their normal form, since they'd lead a pretty miserable existence if they were constantly at risk of stepping on their friends and family. 'Sides that, this is gold.

I’m imagine this to be a mix of Exo-Force, Ninjago, and Hero Factory’s 2014 mech sets. That would be cool. :)


I like Lego, Bionicle, and Hero Factory!:)

Which elements do you think don't mesh with the general ideas of Bionicle?

My idea was that the Toa use giant robots which enhance their powers to titanic levels; these robots can be summoned at will, teleporting to their user - think like what zords do in Power rangers.

Ah. I misunderstood. I guess they really are like the zords, then, since they can also combine into Kaita. Do the Toa also wear tacky spandex costumes?
