Lenny7092 Posted July 11, 2017 Share Posted July 11, 2017 (edited) Hi, guys! Celebrating Bionicle's 16th anniversary this month (Link: http://www.bzpower.com/board/topic/24926-happy-sweet-16-bionicle-d/ )? Well, we know that Bionicle isn't here this year and a planned third year for G2 was cancelled, along with the entire G2. We are hoping that a G3 would come. If you guys don't want G3 to be badly-received like G2, I would say this: Lego would need time to make a G3 that would much better than G2 and would be as good as or better than G1. It would be like Spider-Man: Homecoming this year for how it is well-received compared to Spider-Man movies in 2002-2007 (aka Spider-Man G1 with well-received reviews) and 2012-2014 (called The Amazing Spider-Man, aka Spider-Man G2, with mixed reviews, and is very similar to how Bionicle G2 is like: http://www.bzpower.com/board/topic/23229-bionicle-g2-and-the-amazing-spider-man-movies-are-alike/ ). Let's hope that Bionicle G3 is like Spider-Man: Homecoming (aka Spider-Man G3). Lego should know that the cancellation of Bionicle G2 may have upset Bionicle fans, like us, and there is no new well-received constraction line with an original story by Lego (Hero Factory is an example of that constraction line, but it has mixed reviews, I believe). We may need that kind of Lego line to satisfy ourselves, don't we? I feel that I don't have a hobby of building constraction sets this year because of the lack of the constraction line. Without that line, I feel that I have no purpose in buying constraction sets this year (Anyone feel that way, too?). Well, in order for G3 to be successful and Lego to make us happy that we would a constraction line with an original story by Lego, I made a hopefully-brilliant idea that I would like Lego to do for us: re-mastering Bionicle G1. When I think of re-mastering, I look at trailers about a Sonic the Hedgehog game called Sonic Mania and Sonic Generations. They improved the graphics from the first few games in the early 1990's. They never rebooted the story, they just improve the originals' looks while re-telling the story (Well, at least Sonic Mania is re-using levels from the originals, like the Green Hill zone from the first Sonic game in 1991). The same goes to Samurai Jack's Season 5 in this year, when they improved the show's animation while there is one episode where some stories from Seasons 1-4 are re-told with the new animation (Season 5 is for teenagers rather than kids, guys, but not too bad.). For the remastering in Bionicle G1, this would be a good idea if Lego would take a long time making a well-received G3 while we are waiting for a new constraction line with an original story by Lego. Re-mastering Bionicle G1 would mean re-telling the G1 story while improving the G1 sets into new better versions of themselves when the G3 is in development and before G3 would be made. For example, the Toa Mata's limbs are divided into two pieces literally, necks that can function like normal necks, having regular five-fingered hands, even-looking arms, and twisting waists. Lego would use new and old molds of the pieces to make this happen. There could be some new things for G1, like a TV show and/or a video game or more to better re-tell it to new Bionicle fans. CCBS would work, but it's very different from G1's building systems. But still, it might work in modernizing the G1 sets. Plus, it would be a good birthday gift for Bionicle's 16th anniversary. Anyway, think how Sonic Boom, a Sonic the Hedgehog TV show and spin-off series, happened in 2014-now when Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces, coming this year, are in development since Sonic Lost World in 2013. I know that Sonic Boom is not the best thing in the Sonic franchise, but it's a filler to keep patient fans happy before releasing this year's new games. If you need a stronger example, try watching YouTube videos that compare and contract the old versions of the first few Crash Bandicoot games in the late 1990's and the new re-mastered versions of them in a new game called Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy, which came out a week ago. I am not interested on the Crash Bandicoot franchise, but I think it best shows what I mean. Basically, the new game re-tells the old stories from the old games while improving the animation in them. That's also what I meant. I would like the re-mastering of Bionicle G1 to happen at least 2018 or next year or so. Lego wouldn't have to re-tell all of the G1 years before G3 would begin. The re-mastering would just be a filler for Bionicle's new absent years after G2, like how Hero Factory did for Bionicle after Bionicle G1. Plus, it may help bring the golden age of constraction again, like Bionicle G1 had, so we wouldn't be sad about the dark age/Great Depression of constraction that we are having this year (Link: http://www.bzpower.com/board/topic/24467-the-dark-agegreat-depression-of-constraction/ ). So, there. What do you think, guys? Think it would be an excellent idea? Well, we do love Bionicle, after all, and it's our favorite constraction line, after all.
