Here's a classic one I made years ago (that I believe is my highest rated post ever):

Sadly it's true, its like a real minefield to understand where to begin. The fact that the entire beginning came from book near the end of the series in 2009 (How the Spherus Magna planet destruction began) and how mutran figured out how it the robot worked came from a 2008 serial/and books as well.
Basically every year the hero sets would be a new teams... But most of all the villains sets had backstories how they existed for many years. This was obvious with the the Visorak, the Piraka, Barraki, the 2008 Makuta sets who were literally ancient demigods and the bara magna species as a whole were even older than that.

Nowadays there are plenty of good videos to learn about it.

Its referencing how overly complicated Bionicle lore is to someone new to the franchise trying to figure out everything compared to something simple like Hero Factory.

Bionicle and Hero Factory have completely unrelated stories, so "It's not a story Hero Factory would tell" doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. And Bionicle lore is very learn-able, so the entire meme falls completely flat.

You start at the beginning. It's that simple.

No, the beginning came from 2001, when the Toa Mata landed on Mata Nui. Are you confusing backstory with the actual beginning of the narrative?

This is blatantly nonsense. From 2001-2003, it was the Toa Mata/Nuva. Then from 2004-2005 we got the prequel story about the Toa Metru/Hordika. Then from 2006-2007 we got the Toa Inika/Mahri. And then in 2008 we got the Nuva again. Over the course of about ten years, it was only three different teams, of which only two were active at the same time.

Yes, this is how storytelling works. New characters always have a backstory. Half the fun of being introduced to a new villain midway through a story is learning about their history. What kind of point are you trying to make? Would you prefer new villains to just pop into existence out of nowhere, or for new villains to not exist at all?

EDIT: I am the meme police.

To provide some additional context, there was a particular user here who really wanted Bionicle G1 and Hero Factory to share the same universe. I think that might help explain the reaction.

Yeah I remember that guy. He had the long and unwieldy hashtag posts, what happened to him? He was kind of endearing in an annoying way.

Third on middle row honestly just looks like one of those many fake leaks from back in the day.

I haven't seen him around since the forum downtime a little while back. 

Sorry to go off-topic, but I think I've seen him active on Lego Ideas, particularly on some of the product ideas based on Bionicle. As an example, check out the comments on the one named "Mata Nui Rises" (currently getting close to 9000 of the 10,000 votes of supported needed) and you'll see that he's still as persistent as always.

Formerly known as Takanuva's Symbol, I rejoined BZPower on October 10, 2012.

These days, I am perhaps best known for my obsession with all Lego video games.
