D: aw man we should have a forum thread named toa electro its for all the confused unsure topic poster (thats me) oh well but u are right about al that stuff, i like the sound of bone heads of voodoo island though it sounds interesting.Oh i like your profile pic by the way
Not sure if this is the proper section of the forum for this thread. But, whatever.First off we can hardly call these unreleased themes, considering they were just random prototype concept sketches, et cetera, made by people from Advance... so... yeah.I think I'd shun Cybots, they have some overall disturbing vibe to them that I just can't put my finger on. Boneheads... eh. No idea what the sets would be like, since there weren't even any prototypes made- it was just a concept precursor to Bionicle (although same goes for Cybots, to some extent).

Likely all of the above...?
What's the deal with the tags on your topics? Every topic I've seen of yours in the past week or so has had tags related to leaked/preliminary 2013 sets in themes that have nothing to do with what the topics are about. Are you trying to funnel Google searches for 2013 info into these topics? Trying to send subliminal messages about leaked pics being available to people reading the topics? Or just trying to confuse people?

oohh very well stated sir i applaud you . i do see how the cybots were the birth of the ball joint idea i thought that it contributed alot for the proceeding themes that incorporated such mechanisms.and as for the tags ive simply been doing what other do on any other site witch is getting the new trends and tagging them, if you thnik that is wrong please tell me i do not want to upset anyone

Bone Heads of Voodoo Island, being an earlier concept of BIONICLE, was moving in the direction of something marketable, but it was not yet refined enough to become a hit in the way BIONICLE did. Furthermore, I think the mythic story tone used for BIONICLE suited the eventual theme far better than the story tone Bone Heads of Voodoo Island implied with its cheesier title.

I doubt it. If they weren't going to put any more effort into a name for the theme, they wouldn't have put forth the effort to give all the characters meaningful names. They probably would have been given nonsensical "tribal-sounding" names instead of authentic names from a real language. So the Maori controversy probably wouldn't ever have happened in the first place.
Apparently, another name they considered was "Dooheads"... yeah.Also, I think that if Bionicle had been called "Boneheads of Voodoo Island", it would have made that controversy with the Maoris that much worse...
