  1. Or maybe we already did? That's all I'll say.
  2. Nah, I doubt that's him. Even if it is, it's been almost 17 years, I doubt he'd want to be bothered by a dozen people talking about Bionicle now.

    Final MakutaFest

    I can't believe it's been this long. MakutaFest started in 2010 as a side project established by The TTV Channel (then The Three Virtues podcast) and the BS01 Podcast (then the... BS01 Podcast. We kinda suck at naming stuff xD). Does anybody remember the first livestream? I don't. Literally cannot remember it happened, or that it was even a thing until 2011 rolled around. But I honestly cannot imagine what life would have been like during 2010-2016 without MakutaFest. I'm not going to say we influenced the return of BIONICLE (we didn't) or that we kept the fanbase alive (it'd live on without MF) but, personally for myself, BIONICLE would not be the same without MakutaFest. It's what keeps me excited for everything. With that said, this will be our finale. Our last blast, as it were. Why? Times change, we keep moving forward, and in order to do that we need to say goodbye in a proper venue. For me, that is MakutaFest. For others, they may have already come to terms, and wish to reminisce with the good ol' times of G1, or reflect on what was and could have been in G2. For even more others, they may still be looking for closure, and I do believe MF is the closure we all might be seeking. So please, feel free to join us on Aug. 19th. It won't cost a dime to attend, it just requires you to go check out TTV's YouTube channel and watch the livestream. Couldn't be simpler. ... Also we're giving away one of BS01's artbooks. Should I have started with that? More info here.
  4. So I've been placed in charge of coordinating a (rather small-ish?) table area for a Lego art and play event in Tacoma, WA. I've already begun planning how it will form together, but the fun part still comes in that I need to build about 7-10 new items that go towards it being awesome, including a new display case for my masks. In other news, if you happen to hear from the TTV Brickfeed podcast I was on, I actually left my job of six years recently. This is one of the contributing factors in letting me get a chance to plan such an area in the first place (otherwise I'd be planning -everything else- at that event.) With that said, it's going to be an interesting ride to see what I can pull off design-wise. I'll try to post photos when I get it set up, if anybody's interested
  5. Whew, editing videos can be challenging some days. I posted not but BS01 Podcast Interview episodes on our YouTube channel. I have to say, I came up with a very useful format that's very easy to edit and publish, but eventually I'm going to have to find a way to make it even faster. Also the fact I have a 40 minute video to edit next will likely notKill me I also finally got my ticket for BrickCon 2016 (YAAAY I'M GOING THIS YEAR!) and I'm going full-force this time. I don't know what I will do officially, but maybe I'll bring my new Nuva Cube? That'll be fun. Also I have a new Nuva Cube. It lights up. It's also tiled on the surface. You're welcome, Kayru! Otherwise, it's been chaotic the past few weeks (boss went on vacation in Europe, I had to handle the entire shop, practically by myself. Not much fun.) and now I'm looking forward to just catching up. Sooo yeah, that's that. Cheers, all.
  6. Today is Father's Day in America. *throws desk* FIGHT ME, BRO! But no srsly yes to all of this.
  7. Go for Onua. That or Kopaka. Tahu's nice and all but I feel everybody does a Fire character (even if we never have standalone)
  8. Hey all, So BS01 and The TTV Podcast will once again bring you MakutaFest 2016. But before we proceed, we need to ask a major question: Where should we host it this year? The pros and cons of each selection are many, but it boils down to how you guys want to do it. If we end up on YouTube, we'll have to forgo a few of the previous years' giveaway options (in form of trivia) since it'll be nearly impossible to keep track of the chat otherwise. We'd also have to move to a secondary page for chat via forums in order to moderate chat. On Twitch, these can be easily moderated on the fly, but we risk gaining random twitch followers who want to come in and spam links. The main pro for that system is it's what we used last year, so many of our regulars are already signed up for it. If we get a mass majority selecting one or the other, we'll most likely go with that one. So yeah, go forth fans, let's decide this!

    BrickCon 2016

    ... So I might be going. Depends on funding and/or events leading up to the show. ... So what should I build in celebration of my return from a 2 year exile? XD
  10. Can confirm, Stuart Sayger does still discuss and bring BIONICLE comics to his booths. I was very lucky to meet both him and Carlos D'Anda the same day, got two comics signed, one each. We then got this photo two days later, he picked up this comic (which is actually my favorite cover) for the photo. I also got a Green Lantern print from him

    I'm a Video Maker Now.

    Oh easy, first you gain an audience, then abuse the power having an audience. Which is why I'll never get an audience.
  12. It has been about 10 years since I last had semi-permeant access to a decent video editing software. I cannot believe how much I missed doing videos until I opened the BS01 YT channel. So now that I have this power, I promise not to abuse it. Much. ... I should make that BS01 trailer I've always wanted TTV Podcast to make for me : O
  13. I have to say, I am super proud of SPIRIT for getting us hooked up with Volta and the voice actors. Seriously, SPI does not get enough credit from us, and I want to fix that now. Basically, praise SPI. He earned it. ... Also go listen to our interviews.
  14. In this episode, SPIRIT interviews Paolo Bryant, the voice of Pohatu in Bionicle: The Journey to One. Click to go to the Episode! We've got more coming up, so we'll try to keep these going out for awhile. We may end up being able to start doing these weekly.
  15. Hi Jam Pot Studios, As Kraahlix said, we haven't actually come to a consensus on the subject, however it's the current stance that it remain off of BS01. We never actually offered to post the winners as a prize during this or the A Thousand Years Untold 2 contest, but at least I am open to the idea. The easiest place to actually suggest we add them is right here: http://biosector01.com/wiki/index.php/BIONICLEsector01_talk:Articles_for_Creation If you submit your idea to the Articles for Creation page, the community will have an opportunity to share in on discussing the pros and cons of adding it to BS01 We do appreciate you keeping interest in the content of BS01, and we look forward to your contributions!
  16. Hey everybody, the BS01 Podcast is back in action! In this episode, SPIRIT, Dorek, and Swert discuss the newly-released episodes of Journey to One. We also reveal details on how you could get a chance to win the LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters set (with a value of $350 USD)! Discuss down below, and check out our contest mentioned in the article above. Looking forward to hearing your entries!
  17. We began posting the winners on our Facebook Thus far, we announced the Caption, Theory and Photo contest winners.
  18. Good idea, oh great SPIRIT. Except for the part where we'd need an image to do that with

  21. I'll try not to disappoint. *Signs*
  22. Sooo... ain't gonna lie, if you planned to enter the photo contest right now, your odds of winning General Grievous are looking pretty good right now. Like, very good. This is a reminder that The Caption and Meme contests will be ending tomorrow night, December 2nd, at 11:59 PM PST. To enter, you simply have to email us an original meme based on Star Wars, or caption the photo below, to biosector01@outlook.com with the name of the contest you're entering in the subject line.
