  1. Your doing pretty good! Maybe you should do the Hero Factory movies before you do Journey to One so that it can be in chronological order?
  2. These were pretty funny. Maybe after youve finished Bionicle maybe you could do the Hero Factory movies or that weird Galidor show they made?
  3. Unfortunately for you I have gained the powers of Morbius and proceed to morb the mask into my possession. My mask.
  4. You then realize that you are inside the Great Spirit Robot, but my consciousness is whats controlling everything. My Mask (and Universe!)
  5. Suddenly you realize you are in a surreal and trippy freudian dreamscape and discover that you are actually me. My mask.
  6. This is pretty much what I was thinking. It will definitely take a lot of work for a new in house IP to succeed in todays climate.
  7. I still have all of mine. They are proudly on display as well.
  8. Yeah, I would say most of the toxic people on here have left the site, there arent too many active users anymore. But if you want to liven up the place that would be great!
  9. I do remember a story on the front page here a few years ago about how the Chinese police had raided one of the largest lego bootleggers and arrested the heads of the operation in an attempt to enforce copyright laws.
  10. Also dont reply to the bot topics. The scammers will just see that their bot got feedback which will prompt them to send more bots.
  11. I just wan to know if they are still making those Star Soldiers bootlegs still? They started making them c.2003, made them until g1 was canceled then made Hero Factory bootlegs under the Star Soldier name before moving onto g2.
  12. I call upon the power of Tren Krom to help me claim the mask. My mask.
  13. Though this is kind of a thread necromancy I do agree that Rocka sidelined Evo and Nex. After 2.0 they never really showed up that much.
  14. Set wise I always thought Bitil looked the coolest.
  15. You know Im kind of glad I took a hiatus for a few months, it seems like Lenny might have finally lost it. Its really sad honestly, addiction can take many forms I guess.
  16. To counter the Ninjago argument. Ninjago very much owes much of its success to being a lego theme, so it would very much fall into the broader category of the "Lego Franchise". There were people who exclusively collected Bionicle and never got into System sets, if you collect Ninjago there is a good chance that you collect non Ninjago System sets. I think that the last new theme lego really put a bunch of marketing and hype for was Chima, I even remember seeing Chima ads in movie theatres! After Chima flopped after that first year I think Lego has been scared to really hype up a new theme since and has chose to have Ninjago be its main money maker.
  17. Since the late 70s toy lines have been able to become massive franchises and their own IPs. Stuff like Transformers, GI Joe, He Man, My Little Pony, and 90s anime card games. All of these toy lines had massive multimedia marketing, something Bionicle copied to its success. Since Bionicle ended I dont think I have seen a toy line utilize marketing to such a great extent, or become as big a Bionicle did. Licensed IPs seem to be the big sellers for toy lines nowadays. Does anyone else agree with me or have other thoughts about this?
  18. I remember this. Never got it because I was still salty over Bionicle getting cancelled, but in hindsight it was really cool. Too bad it was short lived, had a really good concept.
