All I can say is 'if only'. Then again, I'd be happy just buying the molds and machines that made the bits and making bionicle bits in every colour I ever wanted.

But in all seriousness, TLG under the control of BZPower would be devastatingly awesome if it ever actually happened. Too bad the former is a multinational multi-billionaire organisation.

 

 

I actually wish this was true, since the idea of BZP buying the intellectual property of LEGO known as BIONICLE has crossed my mind multiple times.

 

Nice try though!  :nahnah:

 
I'd love to see that happen, especially if Greg came along with it. They could say "Well, you're not doing anything with it"

Yes! We must buy Greg!

I'm still holding on to the hope that that was really Greg. It is quite possible that he was posting from another computer in another location. Or perhaps he had someone else post it for him.

For me, BIONICLE was an epic science fantasy saga with a deep and complex lore, and was best when it was exactly that in its later years. I'm not sorry if that offended you.

Monorail is on the list too, but only in new grey. Old grey may come back though, we'll have to do some market testing to see.

I think the better option would be purple Bionicle monorail, with an accompanying teal Galidor 9v train. Of course, each would have one car filled with soccer/basket balls respectively.

Hmph. 

 

@bones: This topic is a revolt to sound logic. First off, BZP does not have 14 million dollars, nor did they ever, unless the admins went out and robbed a bank. 

 

Second, Greg, being barred by law from communicating with us via his profile, should he have such an announcement, would likely use a more prudent method to reveal it such as communication with Erebus like usual. 

 

Just admit it...this is a joke. :P

True story, actually. Here are some images I secretly snapped of two BZPower employees handing off some money to a LEGO employee. Is it hush-hush money given before the big announcement? Where is that employee now? ONLY TIME WILL TELL. Posted Image Posted Image

There would be nothing wrong with that, Adventure Time is a phenomenal show, and in my opinion one of the best cartoons that has played in the last few years.

 

I think we should bring back KimPower, that was a good thing.

Also, how about 'LEGO Power' for the site's new name?

What's this? I go to bed and the 'other' thread closes down? That seems a little too convenient for me. Technically it's APril 2 here, but I guess I have to wait until it's no longer April 2 across the globe before I can make any sense.But this thread, I still don't believe.

I think it's better not to think about it until it's April 2 across every timezone. Then again, there's nothing to stop them keeping up the charade for the next few years either. I wouldn't be convinced unless the Lego Logo appears on the site. And considering trademarks and lego's relationships with them...

Right now, everything just seems too perfect, too coincidental.Problem here is, we have no idea as to how long they're going to keep this all up. It may be until April Fools has passed in all timezones, it may be a few days, it may even be weeks. We don't know, and cannot possibly know for sure.

Unfortunately, it seems that the Danish Chamber of Commerce has rejected our proposal to purchase The LEGO Group. We'll be putting in an appeal, but it looks like this may not happen.Thanks for your support everyone. We'll keep at it!
