What I don't understand is why so many people want to see all non-set characters as sets. What does that accomplish? Giving you a "complete" BIONICLE collection? The BIONICLE universe is extremely large, and even if every named character were created as a set the collection would be far from "complete" because there would be thousands of unnamed characters and background creatures that don't appear as sets, including entire Matoran tribes!As I see it, if you have every BIONICLE set already released then your collection is already "complete". Beyond that, there are a few characters who are important and memorable enough to want as sets, like the Matoran Universe robot for example. But a set of, say, a Gafna, would be utterly pointless except as a rather boring way to get BIONICLE parts that don't, as it currently stands, exist.In general I feel there are better ways to remember BIONICLE than to try to fill insignificant gaps that TLG would have had no reason to try and fill even if the theme had never come to an end.
