Hello everyone, I have an announcement to make. Although it is sort of unfortunate that it is April fools, I just recieved authorization from LEGO to talk about this today, so I didn't want to wait. (Hopefully it isn't their April fool's joke on me!)

 

Over the last few weeks, I've been in talks with LEGO about the fate of Bionicle. More specifically, we've been discussing the possiblity of it making a return in some shape or form. The intrest in the line has keep going strong, which is one of the reasons this came up. Although I went into the discussion not knowing where it would lead, I'm happy to say that its good news! Although the revival wouldn't mean having a full line of sets again, there would at least a few small sets, and at the very least, a continuation of the story again. I'm not going to talk about where that's going, but I'm sure you have a few guesses.

 

I'm really grateful to you guys for sticking with this community through thick and thin, and helping to show that Bionicle really does deserve another chance. I'll be posting more information on what's going to be happening as soon as I can, and hopefully allowing you guys to be involved in the process. Untill then, carry on! I still really enjoy this community, and I am looking forward to becoming a more active part of it again.

 

Best wishes to everyone,

-Greg Farshtey

Would be funny is one of these stories ended up being true. Who knows, with that many of them popping up.

The question is, which one?

Ah, the internet's penchant cynicism has marred what would ordinarily be a joyous announcement.

 

Alas, where has our youth disappeared to? That wide eyed wonder with which we once viewed the world? If I might postulate, perhaps it is time for us all to join hands again and say "yes, I want to believe." Just this time, let's ignore plausibility, facts, and nasty little dates. Let's come together and bask in the glory of wanton optimism. Say to yourself "I am doing this. I am making this happen."

This is certainly interesting news. It's nice to know that LEGO cares about the interest still in the theme, but hopefully this doesn't give LEGO fans the idea they can just rant on forums to bring back themes they like.  <_<

 

And if this is a joke.....ugh that's horrible.

Put it this way, if this is another BZP joke, then it might be on the front page today. However, if it isn't then it will definitely be on the front page today or tomorrow (hopefully tomorrow). So, if we look on the front page under "April 2, 2013" and see something about this, it isn't a hoax.

no describing this here in words, but I shall try.

 

Absolutely awesome.  Just a few sets would be more than enough, and a continuation of the story is simply amazing.  Any continuation at all, at that.

Should I have posted today saying Bionicle wouldn't come back, so everyone would suspect the opposite? :P

 

I guess I'll just post an update tomorrow, so you guys can know for sure.

I do believe this. Just because I think Bionicle has the sort of fanbase who'd consider suicide if this turned out to be a lie, and so I don't think Greg would joke about this.

 

Though the new sets and new story will all SUCK and won't be as good as 2001!!!!

I'm going to go on record and say I believe it's a hoax. And if I'm wrong, hey! More Bionicle!
