  1. Technically, the last video game I played was Donkey Kong on the MAME emulator, but the last “big” game played wad Tomb Raider 2 on my PS1 Before that I was playing Tomb Raider 1 on my Saturn while listening to Lord of the Rings in audiobook form.
  2. I’ve always wondered what was up with those old prototype masks. Who thought it was a good idea to put pronounced numbers on the exteriors, really spoils the look!
  3. God the Mistika and Phantoka were so hideous, although I actually like the bug Mistika. Not necessarily set related, but I HATE the easily cracking pieces of 2007 onward. They are so poorly designed it boggles my mind how Lego could have allowed them to ship. I mean this genuinely, I don't think I have a single uncracked piece in my collection, and I distinctly remember some of them cracking on first time use. Unacceptable.
  4. Seeing Lego directly acknowledge previous sets in the 2010 Stars line was pretty surreal. I was 9-10 at the time so I had a Goldfish's attention span, and a year felt like a REALLY long time. So even in 2010, the Piraka felt ancient... the Takanuva set Kanohi even used the original 2003 mould I think. 2015 was mind-blowing for a similar reason, seeing Lego pay homage to MNOG, the original Toa, and bringing back functions in what I hold to this day to be the perfect marriage of the old system and the new was amazing.
  5. I actually got Krekka the other day, and I have to say I don't actually like the design much, frankly he seems kind of OVERdesigned.
  6. Nice stuff, I especially like seeing everyone's takes on the little Rahi. It's incredibly frustrating having tiny pixel art instead of proper instructions, though.
  7. All things considered most definitely nostalgia.
  8. What style of music do you think fits Bionicle best? 2000s style techno? Orchestral? Tribal? Rap? Not sure what you'd call it, but like, rock?... (think gravity hurts, cryoshell stuff). Personally I prefer techno, especially MNOG's music and the Power Pack. By the way, does MNOG's music composer have any of the old tracks in high quality still? What a tragic loss it'd be if he didn't. Come to think of it, most Bionicle media has surprisingly good music.
  9. This reminds me of the phase I went through trying to dye lego pieces... never did get it to work since Ritz changed their formula or something.
  10. Chewing the rubbery pieces Throwing away the boxes Keeping the pieces together in one massive box for over a decade, grinding against each other anytime I went building Handling the sets way too roughly, especially the joint pieces (nearly ALL of my childhood joints are cracked, scratched, pitted, you name it) Oh, and one thing in particular. Once when I was a kid, I got some of my brother's Toa Mata chest pieces, and I inserted the little black neck sideways, and held it in with two little pins. Well, once the deed was done it was impossible to undo and I wrecked them trying to get the stalks out. Recreation:
  11. By the way, how was this battle originally supposed to go down in the 2000 story bible?
  12. So what were the Toa Kaita for? Such a big deal was made in 2001 about them in promotion CDs, and it's all the Turaga talked about in MNOG. And besides all that they're important thematically, the Toa's hard-won unity, given form. But then they are immediately trashed by the Manas and torn apart upon entering the Makuta's inner realm. Does anyone else find this a little, I dunno, ANTI-CLIMATIC? I think it'd have been better if the Toa Kaita properly defeated the Manas without "cheating" by destroying those weird control towers. And while it makes sense that the Toa's fusion would be forced apart in the inner lair of the Spirit of Destruction, I think it would have worked better thematically if the Toa remained Kaita during their confrontation with the Makuta, and then consciously make the decision to unfuse after being teleported out of his lair, "victorious". After all, isn't unity what the Toa spent all their time that first year trying to attain? Why then, after uniting literally to the point where they merge into powerful, god-like beings, would they be painted as incompetent and powerless? What are your thoughts?
