Yeah, what's next? Spherus Magna actually exsists? But still, someone buying BIONICLE actually would be awesome.

Well, that explains BZP technical problems lately. Now that deal has been finalized, can we get an expert to fix the forums? And GregF to come back? 

 

And if a Bionicle return isn't coming...April Fools!

I'm having trouble telling if other users are going along with it or believe it or what. It's *almost* making the rest of us look like skeptics.

Do you believe it, then?

 Of course not. The mere idea was too preposterous to believe (much as I wish it were so). I just meant when you read through the comments which are playing along you start to believe it yourself. is it a morphic field thing or sheep syndrome?

Have some faith. Just because it's April 1st doesn't mean it's a prank. Believe me, I was a little skeptical at first, but after more and more premier and staff members agreed, I agreed with them. After all, we're not supposed to lie, cheat, or steal on BZP. Thus, if this was a prank, it would be a cruel one.

If it were just them buying rights to Bionicle, I'd believe it hook line and sinker. it'd be a 'why not?' scenario, like how the rights to the police box were given to the BBC because the Met Police weren't using it. however, the OP was about buying lego themselves, not merely bionicle. I have trouble envisioning a company worth $14bn being owned by an internet forum...epic though it would be.

If the staff is agreeing, it may a part of the big prank.

I don't understand the confusion here. Obviously the date lends somewhat to people being skeptical, but come on. BZP's been building to this for a while now, what with the shift in the forums to be more general Lego-centric, all the new features they've added, etc.

 

This is the next logical step to ensure the longevity of the forum and Lego itself. I'd do the same if I was in their position, TBH. Bit of a risky move, one that could have reprecussions later down the line, but I support them wholeheartedly in their endeavors. :D

I saw this news story and thought to myself: "Ah, so THAT'S what it is!" Good one, guys! Although, come to think of it, such a thing might be more possible than we think... Who says we go for it?

 

[color=#4b0082;]The only way that this could be funnier is if it actually turned out to be true.[/color]

[color=#ffffff;]But guess what, guys? It won't.[/color]

[color=#4b0082;]I feel a little like this isn't going to fool anyone. :P[/color]

I didn't believe it for a second. Buying the rights to BIONICLE--That, I would have believed! But all of LEGO? Nope.

 

hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha I woke up in my barely conscious state and saw this and was like mother of god what's gotten into Black Six this time. Then I remembered it was April Fools' Day. :P

B6 must have finally snapped! lol

Well, if this IS true. I move that every BZP member (at least premier members) should get a classic BIONICLE set. Or BZP should offer them up as prizes for winners of the BBCs or SBCs.

it's a prank. it's a multi-billion company, the biggest in the world last I checked. I doubt all of the BZPower members combined could buy it.

And you pessimists said my petition would never produce any results. :)

 

This surprised me! but what will happen with the presidents of the Lego Group like Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen or the other person? (forgot his name). Will lego still be made in Denmark?

While I wasn't personally sitting in on the deal, I helped in some of the smaller decision-making and planning.  As far as I know, production and design will still take place in Denmark, but as a consequence BZPower will become a Danish-language site.  I can't say for certain, though, and it would probably be better to wait for B6 to confirm it.

Correction: Rather, I should say I believe it was one of the initial conditions of the sale, but I'm not sure if it made it into the final deal.

Funny! For a moment, I was almost fooled.

 

Buying the Lego group would be extreme. But I do wonder if it is possible for someone to buy the right to Bionicle. That might not be too far-fetched. If someone, say BZPower/BS01/Kanohi Journal, managed to buy the rights to Bionicle, we could write and sell books, comics, video games, etc.

 

Of course, the chances of this happening are VEEEERY slim, I would not completely exclude the possibility. :shrugs:
