Their head jab like chickens. Plus, they have pudgy and round bodies. Some people describe the Bohrok as looking like beetles.
Their heads are much larger than chickens', though, and they have pretty big arms whereas chickens (like all birds) only have wings.
Don Bluth's films between All Dogs Go To Heaven and Anastasia are rather notorious for their badness.
Try visiting the other villages; I think he's also in Ga-Koro and just outside Po-Koro.
Remember bionicle g1 is mostly inspired by maori mythology a lot of Polynesian cultures and religion intergrated into this franchise for all ages.
The early years were very influenced by Maori culture in terms of the names and the island setting, but the overall Bionicle story was almost completely separate, conceived by Christian Faber and some other creatives.

Wait, there's a night mode?
Yes, click the 'theme' button at the bottom of the page.
Default, night mode felt like a completely different site.

Everyone makes mistakes, and major mistakes were certainly made with the marketing and promotion of G2.
In hindsight it clearly needed more than it got, but I don't think that automatically makes Lego incompetent.

It was canceled because of Lego's own incompetence.
Maybe they didn't do perfectly with it, but would you really call one of the world's biggest and longest running companies incompetent?

Can you explain what you mean by "entirely my opinion?" The brittle pieces were an objective design flaw.
Given the topic title, it's his opinion that the brittle pieces were the biggest disappointment, while it might be someone else's opinion that the biggest was something different.

One disappointment was G2. The sets suck. And the tv show is bland.
What TV show?

Basically, Matoran are kinda speciesist?
According to canon, the word rahi literally translates to "not us" in the Matoran language. So it can be applied to absolutely any other creature or species.
Would Krana, Kraata and Makuta count as Rahi too then?
That was one of two things that particularly bugged me about the movie: The Morbuzakh never being mentioned by name, given it wasthe driving force of the early 2004 storyline.
It made sense not to name it, given that it plays no part at all in the movie story, which is all about (in addition to the Toa) Lhikan, the Dark Hunters, Dume and Makuta.
Its 'cameo' was just a little reference for those who knew the full story.
As Master Inika said, pretty much every television show loses viewers sooner or later.
It's a particular problem for story-based shows, because the further on it goes the more difficult it is for new viewers to grasp what's happening.
Lego selfishly cancelled Bionicle in 2010
It wasn't selfish, they had good reasons.
Wanted to ask a couple of questions regarding Mata Nui Online Game 1.5. First is the fan made sequel to MNOG. I have seen videos online of scenes and gameplay dating back to 2009 and probably before, which show MNOG set during the Bohrok War
Could you give any links? I know there's a fan-made MNOLG continuation, but it was from 2013 IIRC.
So unless I'm mistaken, is there a game set in the 2002 era before 1.5 came out? Or is it an earlier model of the same game?
There's a small 2002 game with the Bohrok in it (I forget the exact name), but it's nothing like MNOLG.
The Morbuzahk was actually the main villain for the first half of 2004, but since it never had an actual set it's a bit forgotten now.
Interesting enough, but I doubt they used Thai when coming up with the names. I still think 'Takua' was simply made up.
What years was it super active?
2010-11, I think.
I wonder if it would've lasted if the board hadn't gone for a while in mid-2011. I don't think it quite recovered from that.
I don't know if it's possible to get an exact answer about this. All I think can be said for sure is that after a while the story team settled on a Matoran number of one thousand(ish), but a lot of the media doesn't reflect this, probably because whoever was making it just didn't have that number in mind. The very early online stuff often shows very few Matoran then the movies show vast crowds.
While I do remember the 'twelve Matoran in each village' idea, I don't know if it was decided from the start, and I think Greg soon stated they were dropping it due to the Kohlii match in the first film showing a lot more than just twelve. The second MNOLG might have been made with it in mind, given that there seem to be fewer Matoran than were shown even in the original MNOLG.
The Toa sets were pretty impressive, but beyond that there wasn't much I liked about it. It just felt like a rather weak attempt at rerunning stuff we'd already seen instead of doing anything truly new.
the lack of time spent on Mata Nui
There were three years there, longer than any other island or place AFAIK. How much more time should have been spent there?
The Legend of Mata Nui being cancelled when it was looking so promising.
The Bohrok episodes spending too long on needless conversation scenes.
MNOLG2 being difficult, tedious and kinda pointless.
The lack of a sequel to MOL.
The lack of anything like MNOLG for later years.
Vakama turning evil, which didn't make much sense.
The main story being mostly isolated in the books, which weren't available outside NA.
The Nuva getting usurped by the Inika as the main heroes.
The Mistika/Phantoka hardly resembling the Nuva at all.
Heroes having little to do with the canon story.
Takanuva not having a huge amount to do for most of the later story.
Gee, this could go on for a while...
Regarding that concept art, how do the people get to their homes? I can't see any way down from the land at the top, and going up from the water at the bottom against the waterfalls would be almost impossible.
I think the scene is meant to make you think Dume is working for Makuta (or somebody else bad), so it's more surprising when it turns out Dume has been taken over by Makuta.
The consequence is that the 'Dume seems to be talking to somebody else' scene plays a bit weirdly because now Makuta has to be talking to himself, which isn't something he was shown doing in many other parts of the story.
opinion: no, we DON'T need bionicle back
in Bionicle Discussion
I think he's been pretty clear that he doesn't plan to do more Bionicle writing by himself.
