Lenny7092 Posted January 14, 2021 Share Posted January 14, 2021 Hi, guys. I have a question, and that could be saddening. Do you think that Ninjago has replaced Bionicle. Is it why Bionicle was cancelled in 2010, because Lego likes a similar theme with minifigures? Hero Factory is Bionicle’s successor, but Ninjago came in and it was booming. There were fewer content and smaller budgets for action figures in 2010-2016, and Bionicle has a short reboot from 2015-2016 before being brutal cancelled. We don’t have a real ending for Bionicle’s G1 story (stopped in July 1, 2011) and HF’s story (stopped in 2014, and even though that it is implied that Bionicle G1 and HF share the same universe because of their similarities, nothing is confirmed because none of themes are running). Greg F never continued these stories for almost 10 years probably because they are not running. Ninjago outlived Bionicle G1, and it has a real TV show and theatrical that made Bionicle and Hero Factory look inferior. So, do you think Ninjago is the cause for the action figure themes’ fall and is it keeping the themes from returning because it runs? Ninjago is very similar to the themes, too. Did Ninjago also prevented HF from celebrating its 10th anniversary last year and maybe Bionicle from celebrating its 20th anniversary this year (well, its birthday would be July 1 because the first comic book was released in US during that time)? I mean, is it? I’m quite scared and nervous about the action figure themes’ fates. Greg never said anything about their futures. I tried asking Lego in September 2020 about bringing back Bionicle and Hero Factory, celebrating their anniversaries, give their stories real endings, and say that Bionicle G1 and HF share the same universe to do it, but Lego said “Sorry, we don’t seek Bionicle or Hero Factory anymore, and can you focus on other themes? However, we admire your devotion for them and your ideas, so we will let the designers now.” What does that supposed to mean? Is there hope for Bionicle and HF? There is a lot of wasted potentials for these themes (their cancelled plans in their history). Quote I like Lego, Bionicle, and Hero Factory!
