Tarn posted a topic in Completely Off TopicI was thinking, "You know what? I like talkin' about dreams." I noticed there was no topic in COT about such a subject, so I decided, "You know what? Doesn't break any rules and it's fun. I'll start one." So then--weird dreams, cool dreams, scary dreams. Post 'em and discuss 'em! Obviously, all BZP rules apply so uh, keep some of those weirder dreams to yourself, K? I'll start off with one I had the other night: One of Fall Out Boy's guitarists disappeared, and I was asked to replace him. Only problem was that in the dream, I had my real life level of guitar skill, which is nonexistent. Despite this, they were still pretty darn insistent I help them, even though I kept getting sidetracked so I couldn't practice with them. And in the end I still didn't get to play with them because I woke up, so I can only imagine how much of a trainwreck I missed out on seeing.
Dark_Stranger posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsOne of a new breed of fully sapient Kraata, Sepulchral is an ambitious Rahkshi of density control whose desire to prove himself has given way to a philosophical quest for a more meaningful identity. Alternate angle Front Side Unexpectedly unsettling Daemonic, yet dignified En garde! Sepulchral's page on the Corpus Rahkshi Wiki I started this MoC around six months ago with the sole purpose of building something to wear my trans-orange Mask of Fire. It wound up temporarily set aside due to a lack of the needed parts, but when I finally decided to join Corpus Rahkshi over the summer the half-finished model served as inspiration for the appearance of my first real RPG character. Eventually it more or less became what Sepulchral looked like in my mind. And now that I've finally Bricklinked the necessary pieces, he can make his proper debut at last. As always, comments and criticism are appreciated. Edit: Image linked; please keep embedded images in BBC to 640x640 pixels / 100 kB. -Wind- Edit: Image fixed.
Kopeke's Plastic Surgery
Bonkle posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionDoes anyone know why Kopeke's appearance changed so drastically from the MNOG to his 03 toy? I would like to know if there is an explanation.
On Fleas and Flick Missiles
Aanchir posted a blog entry in A Golden-Red HorizonI was just in my room playing with Breez Flea Machine, a set that I got at the LEGO store last week. It's been on my wish list since before it came out, because I really love its design. The LEGO Group really showed great creativity with this year's Invasion from Below sets and I think it totally paid off. Generally the set meets all of my expectations. Non-traditional design? Check. Its tripod build and heavy use of Technic really help it stand out from previous Hero Factory sets. It's also helped by its bulky leg armor and tiny feet, which give it a very nimble look (though with only three legs and such a tiny footprint, it can't hold TOO many different poses). Great parts? Check. The Bright Yellowish Green square shell detail pieces are great. It DOES have a lovely printed shell like the other machines, though it's a different size and color than usual. The mini-heroes in general have great designs, and Breez is no exception. I'd be amiss if I didn't also mention the cool new cocoon petals! Awesome functions? Check! At first I was a little bit disappointed with the claw, because it snagged every time I tried to flick it so I thought I'd be forced to extend it manually with the "Hand of God". Laaaaame. But then I realized that it was just the winch that was getting caught. If you unwind the winch before firing, it works like a charm! Then you can use it as a grappling hook, and the set even includes a zip-line piece that came out during my childhood, so Breez can slide down the cable to traverse a gap! It also works nicely for grabbing and retrieving the cocoon. Plus, she even comes with a click-shooter — the first one I've gotten in a set, though I bought some from a vendor at Brickfair back in August. For those who aren't aware, these are tiny handheld shooters that fire a 1x1 round plate with surprising distance and power when you press the trigger. Considering how bulky, obtrusive, and difficult to integrate many previous LEGO shooters have been, this thing feels like a dream come true! The variations on the concept coming out next year will hopefully have similar efficacy. But then there's something else. A regular flick missile launcher. And when I was playing with the set earlier, I couldn't help thinking this was probably one of the set's least impressive functions. Don't get me wrong, I love flick missiles! Or I did, back when they were one of the most compact, least obtrusive, and most versatile launcher designs. This year the LEGO Group introduced lots of amazing new launchers, including the click shooter. With a basic click shooter already in the set, I thought a pair of flick missiles would be kind of pointless and superfluous. It's not like they'd even work that well just slapped on the side of the set like that, right? Well, it turns out I was wrong. Maybe I've been wrong for the past five or six years of my life, in fact. Maybe everything I know is a lie. Because just on a whim, I flicked that missile, expecting it to fly maybe eight or ten inches. And instead, like some kind of miracle, it sailed three or four meters, over my twin brother's bed, and landed in the far corner of the room. I actually thought it had misfired and gone straight into the ground before I heard it land on the other side of the room. I was flabbergasted. Flick missiles aren't supposed to work that well. Not from my experience. Probably not from MOST people's experience, judging from all the hate I see for them in reviews. Surely this had to be some kind of fluke, right? After I found the missile, I returned it to the launcher and decided to try again. This time, I kind of screwed up. Instead of launching one missile, my finger accidentally hit both. Great, another misfire, I thought, before I heard yet another click of a tiny plastic missile hitting something hard on the far side of the room. I found the first of the two missiles in the closet, about as far away from where I launched it as the previous launch had taken it. I still haven't found the second. Maybe I could get a blacklight to help look for it, since it does have a convenient fluorescent green tip. It didn't land in either of the trash cans over there, so it will have to turn up eventually. But wherever it ended up, today I learned something amazing. Discounting the possibility of witchcraft, or the possibility that the last hour and a half of my life has all been some crazy dream... my flick game is surprisingly strong.
Lewa0111 Nuva posted a topic in BZPower Q&AHello everyone, So I have recently returned from a break of quite some time, and noticed something strange. It seems to me that all posts before a certain time (save those that have been edited back to normal) are showing up "squished;" i.e. they are missing all of their line spacing and look as though someone went through and deleted every instance of using the "return" key. Is this an issue with my computer or is this a universal problem on the forums, and if universal, is there any easier way to fix it other than going through every single post and manually re-inserting the correct formatting? Thanks! Lewa0111 Nuva

Weirdest Thing A Set Has Ever Done
CaT in Rogue posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionSo, what's the weirdest thing a Bionicle set of yours has ever done? For me, it would be my Thok set disappearing for a few weeks, and then me finding it under a thin stick in my bedroom. Seriously, the stick was about 1/4 of the width of Thok. Weird.
Strangest Places To Have Found A Bionicle Set!
Plague posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionWhat is the strangest place to have found a Bionicle set, be it in a pawn shop, under your dog, a remote location, or anywhere? I think for me it was going to Meijer this year and finding a Stars set crammed behind a playset.In some mulch.
Dwanny Nuva: Toa Of Creation
Dwanny posted a topic in General ArtHi guys,I thought i might try a different style for a change, so here goes:Dwanny Nuva: Wears the kanohi Arte (pronounced Art - Ay), the mask of dream realisation. He also wields a Pensul, a mighty weapon used for concentrating his power.First i thought i might do a toa drawing test, then it turned into a coloring test, and then it (d)evolved into this. :PThe main reason i inked it is because of the irony of a toa wielding a pencil, and so i decided to give it a rather cartoony look.Dwanny's Tips:To give something a cartoony look, try using smooth, curvy lines. Inking them also helps the "cartoon effect" along. Also, try using bright, bold colours.P.S. the colours didnt come out very well, i know. I think my scanner hates me.Criticism appreciated,-Dwanny
The New Mvm Game
Chip Wiseman posted a topic in Fan Created MediaThe New MVM Game Basically, this is an RPG videogame based upon "The New MVM Adventures" comics (which I do hope to upload soon), based in turn on The_Eliminator's "Makuta Versus Mata Nui" comic series, based loosely on the biggest BIONICLE fued of all time. It follows Makuta Teridax, here simply referred as Makuta, in his amaja circle stone form, and the same goes for Mata Nui, and their newly found brother (major story de-branch) Rockzilla, four armed rockstar. Dr. George Pie, who has just about had enough of getting eaten, creates a potion that turns almost the entire world into dark slaves to serve his cause. Meanwhile, our band of heroes (and villains) set out on a quest to cure the Planet Pi and do random errands for complete strangers along the way. But the trouble is, the have no idea what the deviled eggs is going on... Screenys! Yay! I know what your'e thinking. Yes, it is Takanuva, but this is set way after Terry and Mat have stopped fighting (in an alternate timeline - duh) and Takanuva here has decided to change his name to Awsomesauce. Oh shnisel. The "e" is missing.
Most Inelegant Part Of The Story?
Aedai Rivin posted a topic in Bionicle Storyline & TheoriesWhat do you feel was the most inelegant part of the Bionicle Storyline? A particualr moment or plot device you feel was there just for show, or could have been done better, or was obviously just there to move the plot along. For me, I think that Hahli's mask in the Inika saga was a bit too convenient. Out of the hundreds of masks, Hahli gets the one that would help her and her team do exactly what they needed to do? What do you think?Rivin
