  1. You start at the beginning. It's that simple. No, the beginning came from 2001, when the Toa Mata landed on Mata Nui. Are you confusing backstory with the actual beginning of the narrative? This is blatantly nonsense. From 2001-2003, it was the Toa Mata/Nuva. Then from 2004-2005 we got the prequel story about the Toa Metru/Hordika. Then from 2006-2007 we got the Toa Inika/Mahri. And then in 2008 we got the Nuva again. Over the course of about ten years, it was only three different teams, of which only two were active at the same time. Yes, this is how storytelling works. New characters always have a backstory. Half the fun of being introduced to a new villain midway through a story is learning about their history. What kind of point are you trying to make? Would you prefer new villains to just pop into existence out of nowhere, or for new villains to not exist at all? EDIT: I am the meme police.
  2. Bionicle and Hero Factory have completely unrelated stories, so "It's not a story Hero Factory would tell" doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. And Bionicle lore is very learn-able, so the entire meme falls completely flat.
  3. The fact that the 1.0 and 3.0 Heroes have the same helmets...
  4. I'll pay one penny more than whatever that guy offers.
  5. I knew someone was going to bring this up, but if the split in the universes predates the Great Beings, then it basically predates "Bionicle" and essentially doesn't count as an alternate universe. It's just a totally different universe at that point.
  6. No it wouldn't. Takanuva just used his timey-wimey space magic to teleport around, whether it was through the Olmak or whatever the Spectral Mask had, which was probably just a hallucination. Not the main system teleporter.
  7. Well, the Story Team were forced to work with what they were given. The Set Designers didn't make the Stars with any story in mind whatsoever, they just made chibi versions of iconic characters throughout the years. It kinda sucks, but that's the only reason they did it. If they made Tahu Star based on the Nuva version, this whole mess would have been avoided.
  8. It wasn't the interior of the Red Star. But it should have been.
  9. Pocket Dimensions were all created for a certain reason, though. Like the Field of Shadows to contain Zivon or the Makuta Hive in Karda Nui. So if it's all contained in a pocket dimension, who made it and why? More importantly, what is the purpose of trying to connect G1 and G2? I don't see how it would benefit either of the continuities.
  10. Alternate universes, as established in G1, follow a Constants and Variables rule where they always have more in common than they have differences, with those differences always stemming from different, history-changing decisions that certain characters made. G2 has barely nothing in common with G1 at all, besides reusing some names and ideas. The entire worldbuilding is completely different from the ground up, especially since it relies on true magic instead of advanced technology, for starters. There's no Spherus Magna, no Great Beings, no GSR. It can't be a parallel universe if there's hardly no parallels.
  11. If you look at some of the 2016 concept art, there's some very clear Mesoamerican influence.
  12. Market testing showed that little kids liked the darker colors more.
  13. How is that confirmed? People pass out before they die from drowning.
  14. Nope. The idea of Antidermis wasn't even close to being conceived at this point, and Early Installment Weirdness was in full-effect. Mata Nui and Makuta were both considered Great Beings at the time, for example. Furthermore, Antidermis isn't exactly that hard to destroy anyway. It can be frozen, burned, or dissipated. It also wasn't a puppet or anything, that was the man himself.
  15. Since when do Makuta need to breath? It's not like they were devolved like Icarax.
  16. The Toa argued and bickered about all kinds of things throughout their earlier adventures. While it's never directly specified, it was probably just yet another petty disagreement.
  17. You could only do this while activating the power for yourself, so unless you create a bubble of water around your own head, it's extremely useless.
  18. It'd be extremely difficult to sum up a decade's worth of information in a concise format. Too bad there's no way to read old threads. I want to see that MOC that your signature is referencing. 1 - Greg got laid off by Lego, and now he's working on an original, non-Bionicle story that has some previews posted on the TTV forums. 2 - On the TTV Forums, there have been a lot of Canonization Contests for characters that never had sets, like the rest of the Toa Hagah. Just like the creation of the Universe, this has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move. 3 - Bionicle had a reboot in 2015 that was supposed to last at least three years, but it got cancelled early after two. 4 - 3D Printers have been allowing fans to create custom masks and other parts, and many online shops for them have popped up. 5 - There's a lot of fan-made Bionicle content being made, from revamps of Bionicle Heroes, to animated series like The Mangai Project, to tabletop RPGs like Doronai Nui. 6 - Pic Related is what Lego gave us to commemorate Bionicle's legacy on their 90th Anniversary.
