We've been building the Toa, villains, and Rahi of the Biologic Chronicle for years. But now we've lost it all again. After an unfortunate end of the journey in 2010, a reboot last year, and it's end again this year, we've come a long way. Some may say there's no reason at all for the Bionicle line to not be selling to children in this day and age, but I disagree. I believe there's a very clear answer that would be easy for LEGO to whip up and make Bionicle a top dog in their repertoire! We've read and seen it countless times with movies/shows/books, and that's the world of Bionicle. What's truly special about Bionicle is mostly what's not built or in a set. I cannot fathom why this rich resource hasn't been tapped into for a LEGO building set. What I'm talking about, is that LEGO can release building sets for Matoran villages and ancient Matoran cities that have been corrupted by Makuta. (Not to mention the people that live there.) Imagine a child that's new to the Bionicle world, in a LEGO aisle, and knows nothing about the story behind it. You can say that all they have to do is read a book or watch one of the shows, but this is a child holding the hand of their parent/guardian walking down an aisle way that has no idea what a Bionicle is yet. They'll look at a Bionicle and think that it's cool! But at the end of the day, it's an action figure. Yes, an action figure without a build-able world around it. That's immediately a turn off for a bunch of kids. Instead, they'll look at something they know and love already, like a LEGO Star Wars set, or a Batman set. These things are familiar, because they'll most likely know these worlds already. Another big one is a normal LEGO set for making a building with a lot of average people going about their daily business. My point is, is that for the Bionicle line to be saved, it's necessary for the world of Bionicle to be a build-able set released by LEGO. Sets that will entrance children on the aisle way with their imagination. Sets that are littered with the normal people that live there, such as the Matoran. Some might make the argument that a building set wouldn't be Bionicle. You'd be partially right, as it's never been done for the line before, but here's a counter argument: Do you want Bionicle to survive? Also, it'd be pretty neat to finally be able to build the world. (Don't lie to yourself, you know you'd love to.) I'd love to submit this idea to LEGO Ideas, however, I'm not very good with LEGO building. It's required that you have a photograph of the set idea. If you're good at it, you like this idea, then please go for it. I'll be cheering for you. You may just save Bionicle. TL;DR: Making Matoran village/ancient city sets could possibly up sales for Bionicle. Tell me what you think in the comments below!
