Hi, guys! We probably know that Bionicle is 15 years old, and I have been seeing many other franchises celebrating their anniversaries this year lately, like Ninjago with its 5th anniversary, Sonic the Hedgehog with its 25th, Captain America 75th and Wonder Woman 75th. Each of these anniversaries are also treated with cool stuff this year, like Ninjago showing a script to its very first episode in 2011 (perhaps that Day of the Departed wave is an anniversary present, too, because villains from the past come back?), Sonic the Hedgehog appearing in Lego Dimensions and trailers for new and announced games in 2017, Captain America having a Lego statue and monument (perhaps Captain America: Civil War is an anniversary present, too?), and Woman Woman with Lego pictures and statue (perhaps Wonder Woman's appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is an anniversary present, too?). Plus, they also say "Happy some-number-th anniversary!" or something similar. So, my question is why Bionicle did not have any of these in its 5th, 10th, and 15th anniversaries? You ever thought of that? It's weird that Bionicle never gets a treatment of any kind or there isn't a sign that says something like "Happy some-number-th anniversary!" It makes me feel bad that Bionicle didn't have these things to celebrate its anniversaries. I mean, Bionicle is pretty popular, was successful in some of its years, and is loved by many fans, including us, so it should get something on its anniversaries in my opinion. I have been remembering about certain things that could have been signs of celebrating Bionicle's anniversaries, and here's what I got: 1. 2006 - 5th anniversary - The Piraka used the Toa Mata's canisters to arrive in Voya Nui. This reminds me of 2001 when the Toa Mata used their canisters to arrive in the island of Mata Nui. Plus, the video game, Bionicle Heroes, includes characters from 2001-2006. 2. 2011 - 10th anniversary - The Bionicle toy line wasn't there because of Hero Factory, but there is the ending of one of the Bionicle serials, Sahmad's Tale. Plus, Hero Factory's Savage Planet wave in that year has a lot of similarities to Bionicle's first storyline in 2001: a big villain mind-controlling animals, a team of six heroes arriving from the sky to stop him, and they fight against the possessed animals in a jungle. 3. 2016 - 15th anniversary, this year - The Netflix show, Bionicle: The Journey to One, shows the text "2001-2016", which is Bionicle's age, in the end credits and a final battle between the Toa team and Makuta, which reminds me of their battle back in the 2001 storyline. Sadly, G2 died this year as well. This is very disappointing and heinous when cancelling a franchise on its anniversary. (crying in tears of sadness ) Lego never celebrated Bionicle's anniversaries. Lego even never calls what I have on the list above anniversary presents, either. Lego also didn't say "Happy 5th anniversary!" or "Happy 15th anniversary!" to Bionicle. Man, that's heartless, harsh, and unfair in my opinion, as it is like a kid doesn't get his birthday celebrated by people that he likes and loves or presents. Plus, Lego celebrated Ninjago's 5th anniversary, so why not Bionicle's anniversaries? If Lego really celebrated, that would be awesome. Now I would also like to ask you guys another question: How do you thing Lego would have celebrate Bionicle's anniversaries and how would you like Lego to celebrate Bionicle's future anniversaries, like its 20th and 25th anniversaries? For me, I would go with these ideas: 1. Say "Happy 5th anniversary" or "2001-2006" in 2006 and call the Bionicle things in the year that I mentioned above presents. 2. Say "Happy 15th anniversary" or "2001-2016" (on the sets) in 2016 can call the good Bionicle things in the year that I mentioned above presents. 3. Re-release the old sets in the past, or at least the Toa Mata sets. 4. Release golden versions of the Toa Mata sets. 5. Make a video game. 6. Have Bionicle's Facebook a page make a post to celebrate Bionicle's 15th anniversary. 7. Put Bionicle in Lego Dimensions, like Sonic the Hedgehog. 8. Make a storyline that takes place after both the 2011 serials the 2016 storyline where Velika from G1 and Makuta from G2 work together to ruin the events of Bionicle's main storylines defeat the heroes in there and have the bad guys win, so Velika and Makuta would take over both the G1 and G2 universe. They would use some kind of a inter-dimensional device (perhaps use Vezon or make a new Olmak?) and the G1 and G2 Vahi's or a time-traveling device to do this. They would also revive dead villains in the past storylines (perhaps except Makuta Teridax because he would be too un-cooperative because he was obsessed with power?), recruit the still-living ones, and mind-control the reformed ones to assist them somehow. The heroes from the storylines would have to work together to re-live the storylines and fight the villains in there, who are improved, and defeat Velika and Makuta to save their dimensions. A video game would be great to tell the story. Also, perhaps have the Toa Nuva celebrate their anniversary of their first adventure to cherish themselves as heroes and a team. 9. A theatrical Bionicle movie. 10. An announcement to something exciting in Bionicle's future. 11. The return of Bionicle. 12. Unresolved things in G1 and G2 resolved. 13. A TV show that is not exclusive in Netflix. I am not going to send more money to pay for it, and I prefer the show to be in a TV channel that we can watch for free, like Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network. 14. Say something like "Happy 20th anniversary" and "Happy 25th anniversary" in Bionicle's future years if it is still running in them and give it presents, like something similar to the things above. So, there. I know it's a lot, but these are something that Bionicle could have celebrated its anniversaries and would celebrate its future anniversaries. What do you guys think?
Best Game Of 2011
BenLuke posted a topic in Completely Off TopicWhat do you think was the best game of last year ? For me, at least, it was either Bastion or Portal 2, with Skyward Sword coming behind those two.
So This Is The End
Emzee posted a blog entry in blogs_blog_578As usual, I'm quite excited about the upcoming year. So many high-hopes and resolutions (not that I bother setting any, but it's fun to hear about them ). This year wasn't too bad though, I got my first internship, which most likely helped me spring-board into my full-time job offer (from another company). I'm also glad I'm not scrambling trying to reboot the BZPRPG like we've been doing for the last oh-so-many years. Continous arcs are fun. To those fortunate enough to already encounter 2012, happy new year! Hope nothing changed too much. P.S. I also recommend reading through the RPG entries and casting your votes if you haven't already. I'm liking what I'm seeing so far, and I'll let you know my decisions later.
The End Of The Year
GSR posted a blog entry in blogs_blog_1794It is getting so dark that I can scarcely go on writing; and my brush is all worn out. Yet I should like to add a few things before I end. I wrote these notes at home, when I had a good deal of time to myself and thought no one would notice what I was doing. Everything that I have seen and felt is included. Since much of it might appear malicious and even harmful to other people, I was careful to keep my book hidden. But now it has become public, which is the last thing I expected... Whatever people may think of my book, I still regret that it ever came to light. -Sei Shōnagon, The Pillow Book Hah! As a fellow documentarian, I can say this with authority: Shōnagon's covering her ---. It's false modesty, so don't believe a word of it. -Jane Takagi-Little, My Year of Meats Year's end, folks. I thought I would open up this little blog entry with an excerpt from the end of My Year of Meats, a novel I read this year and enjoyed very much. Much of the novel is concerned with the idea of documentary and interpretation, and so prefaces each chapter with a bit of Shōnagon - and just sometimes, the main character gives a response. This particular passage and response wound up a favorite of mine, perhaps because of how this year went for me. Frankly speaking, it was a bit of an oddball year, for reasons quite numerous and quite boring to anyone who isn't me. But maybe the oddest thing of all was that I started writing. In years past I kept a small "journal" of sorts that I added a new entry to every three years (and then every year and a half); I suppose it was the closest thing to a "pillow book" I had. But this year I actually sat down a couple times, opened up notepad, and just wrote about whatever was going on at the time. And it was, for lack of a better word, helpful. And then with the year winding down I actually sat down and wrote a short fic for SSC8 - the first I'd written since I was 10 or so. I submitted it, then spent the next two weeks very consciously avoiding the topic because I couldn't stop going over it in my head and picking out every problem with it that I could see. I'd honestly planned to take it down once the contest was over. That didn't happen, of course, and honestly though I can still see all the flaws in it it was good to hear some positive opinions on it as well. And besides, did you read the above quote? I like to think of myself as modest, but I guess you don't write something if you don't expect someone to read it. But contest aside, really, I'd just enjoyed writing it. So there it is for 2012 - a way for me to unwind. God help me, I have a new hobby. And god help me, I've got plans. Well, a plan. A somewhat silly plan that would rely on a lot of careful fact-checking and a lot of spare time to revise. But I think I just might do it. If I did it wouldn't really get kicked off until March, for a couple different reasons, but I'll probably post a general summary and some bits and pieces here soonish. A lot's going to happen in 2012 for me. With some hard work and a bit of luck, a very good opportunity might just fall into place. And even if it doesn't, my studies are starting to really get rolling. But while I'm not busy making myself a responsible, respectable member of society, I'll write. Or I'll look back at this in a month and feel right silly, one of the two. But probably I'll write. So goodbye, 2011. Adios. さようなら. 2012, do your worst.
