Greetings, all! I recently decided to build the Toa Mata as LEGO BrickHeadz using LEGO Digital Designer (LDD), and then used Mecabrick's 3D-rendering software to create photo-realistic pictures of them. I've posted these as a project on LEGO Ideas, but I wanted to post them here as well for feedback. Thoughts?
System sets. That's right Bionicle G3 but as system. Here's why it is more possible than you think. 1. With the end of nexo knights there is now a open slot for a new system theme. Bionicle can cover adventure and tech easily. (I understand this is unlikely but potentially it could.) 2. Bionicle already has success in system back in G1 following three plotlines in set. 3. Retail stores would be more willing to sell traditional system sets over constraction. Since looking at Bionicle G2 sold poorly but other Lego system sets sell rather well. 4. If the system theme got a strong popularity to making go beyond 3 year term then Lego could introduce a constraction figure line to go with it. This is just an idea I've seen no one bring up. Though might as well share the idea. Please give your thoughts opinions and healthy criticism below.
Edit: It looks like brickshelf is going down repeatedly lately. I've replaced all the image URLs, so those should all work now. (If not, see here.) The LDD (LXF) files are only on brickshelf, so those will only start working when it comes back. (Above link now has images from both batches. See topic for Batch 2 here.) ---- Micro-Bionicle is a project where I take as much as I can from Bionicle, and make it in Minifig scale, or similar scales, as System MOCs in LEGO Digital Designer (Extended mode). Note: I often use "micro" as a technical scale term, and this isn't that, but the name is a pun on microbiotic, and they're so tiny compared to normal Bionicle MOCs, so yeah. I usually use Nano, Micro, Mini, and Macro as demonstrated in this Scalefig image. The Rahi here are all at Mini scale, while the Kini-Nui is at Nano scale. Eventually I plan to make some of the larger Rahi or other things at actual Micro scale. Every single Rahi here has a "mask" (used a beetle piece, the only one that really looks good-ish as a mask at this scale), even ones like Visorak and Keetongu that canonically didn't wear masks (as far as we know), although you can't see them all at the angles of these images. There's at least one Rahi from every year up through 2008, and I tried to include the most important ones and representatives of major locations. The large-font names directly beneath each image are links to the corresponding Biosector01 page.
