Makuta Conquered!

Makuta Conquered! (25/293)

  1. So I was watching a few Japanese Bionicle commercials and I noticed that Japan had a dedicated Bionicle site, www.bionicle.jp. I looked into it and it turns out there's a decent amount of pages preserved on the internet archive. Some of them seem to be more complete than their corresponding English language versions, especially the 2004 era stuff which I haven't seen backed up anywhere else. https://web.archive.org/web/20030808042209/http://www.lego.com/jpn/bionicle/ https://web.archive.org/web/20031124212551/http://www.lego.com/jpn/bionicle/ https://web.archive.org/web/20040924021333/http://www.lego.com/jpn/bionicle/
  2. What pieces are most difficult/annoying for you to take apart? Here are some of my choices: Rahkshi head pieces: The Rahkshi are annoying to take apart in general. Toa Mata head: As a kid I found one of these could get the job done, though still with an irritating amount of effort:
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. All things considered most definitely nostalgia.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
