2006. I started getting the comics, and then the sets, and then BZP, and then procrastination... :P

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...

I got hooked on bionicle in 2001. I actually got the sets and magazines and such. I was really young though and couldn't read the comics, but I looked at the pretty pictures. Later in 2003 I made my parents read me the comics and I would always correct them when they got a word wrong like Toa or Rahi. Sometimes they would ask why I needed help reading if I always corrected them... Good times...~Soran

2001. I'll never forget that one, faithful trip to McDonalds.....Can't believe I have to credit McDonalds for becoming a fan of BIONICLE, but alas, that's the way the cookie crumbles.After the Tohunga (or McToran, whatever), it was only a matter of time before I became hooked and acquired all the Toa Mata. And the rest is history.-Mesonak

As I expected, most of the people on BZP seem to have become fans in 2001. :P However, a surprising mix of latecomers are present, and that's nice to see. I thought I was the only one! (I joined up in 2003, after seeing the Rahkshi in a LEGO catalogue). :lol:Thanks again to Bambi for making the poll,Shyyrn

The poll results would suggest older fans on the forum, what with nobody as yet from '07 onwards, and the majority from '01, myself included. A fan, from the start.

QUOTE
And also, incidently, why people shouldn't be acting like Bionicle's "dead" -- it's still continuing in story form unlike just about any other line and has a very strong chance of coming back some day, so it's wisest for people to remain interested in LEGO, showing their support for HF, etc. The best way, as we've shown long ago, for Bionicle to come back, is for us to be on here showing support for HF and Bionicle at the same time, accepting both, knowing that one day HF too will lose the "new factor" and eventually Bionicle will be ready to come back.

And I suppose that's exactly what happened.

I was there from the beginning, my first set was Gali Mata all the way back in 2001. However, it wasn't really until 2003 that I really became aware of the storyline. Although from that point on, while I still bought the sets, the story was the main reason that I was into Bionicle. It's really the only reason I'm still here a decade on (that and the wonderful BZP community of course).:kakamanu: :t: :m_p: :n: :kakamanu:

My first sets were a Rahkshi Toa Nuparu and Hakann.

Got my Nuhvok Kal somewhen back when they came out, but it wasn't until the Toa Metru that I really got hooked.Therefore, 2004 .(Waaaait, I've been into this stuff for so long already? D: Impossible...) Additional interest came in 2008 when I joined BZPower... but that doesn't really count. ^^

I've been with this series since its start, but my first actual set was a Tahnok. Sucks to be a kid with no money, y'know. :) Nowadays I wish I had gotten some of the 2001 sets, or at least a few mask packs. I mostly got gold and silver masks. :/

2001. It's interesting, I was expecting a lot of votes for around 2006, when they seemed to push the promotional boat out, and I thought that BZP members in general were now a bit young to have become fans in 2001, but apparently not.- Tilius

Late 2002 when my dad got Tahu Nuva(granted, Tahu was for himself, but he let me have it in about 2006). The things I'd do to get my hands on another one of those...Despite my late introduction, I nostalgia'd really hard when I got Gali Mata a few months ago. Is that normal?

I first saw the previews in 2000 in the Lego magazines. I remember thinking they were really weird action figures that I'd never want. That was probably because they were only small pictures. In the begging of 2001, A kid from across the street had gotten in to them, and dragged me along with him. He claimed to be a master of Bionicle lore. I remember the first word I learned was "Kanohi," with the first two syllables pronounced like "canoe." I found out how there were six Toa heroes, all of whom were guys except for Lewa who was a girl. I was delighted to get Tohunga from McDonalds, and I acquired my first set, Pahrak, the following Christmas. A few years later my family moved, and our new library had Bionicle books and MoL. I ran home excitedly with Tale of the Toa. I discovered how many misconceptions I had believed.~Roablin
