It’s so weird.
When I made this blog three years ago, I don’t really know what I expected. I mean, my first post was a random Bionicle/Phoenix Wright thing from Pixiv. As far as I can tell, I made it to scream about random Bionicle stuff into the relative void.
We’re all looking forward to it too! I know personally, it took me a while to find a community I’d enjoy being around to talk about Bionicle and share my goofy photos with. You all are the best! Seriously, thank you!
Non Bionicle Lego fans today:
Oh you can also be a BIONICLE fan and this exact thing happened to me as soon as I logged on
And you sat, looked upon the flames and said…”excellent. It begins.” in your best Teridax impersonation.
Yo yo piraka,
So, if y’all are interested, me and people like alienode and xfirecorex have a group chat on Skype, where we talk about Bionicle. Today’ll be a pretty exciting day to talk about, so if y’all are interested, shoot me an ask and I’ll send you my Skype name, and I’ll add you to the chat! :D
Ahhhh I’d love to, but I have to work until late! D: Let me know if y’all are chatting it up this weekend, I’ll wanna jump in on that!
Whoot Whoot!!!! All aboard Bio2015!!!! I’m so excited for the new series! and it’s a Mask of Creation!?! I knew it!!!!! Ah! So happy!!!! Happy Bionicle Day everyone!
Face is sticker/design, disappointing. Legs have very limited articulation, but contain system long bent piece in trans-orange! Get hype! Two small spikes visible on each front leg, one on each middle, and none on rear.
General thoughts on non-Protector sets: Not making Lord/Krata a titan was a strange choice. All Toa have either black or white feet (aside for perhaps Tahu, as his are completely obscured). LEGO is really going nuts with those lightning pieces. Water and Earth are the only elements to make no use of them.
I really, really hope this looks a lot more interesting in the actual product. This looks like Bionicle Junior. It doesn’t look like the Bionicle I ever knew. I mean, really….that printed face just gets me down.
SEPTEMBER 19 officially should be BIONICLE DAY from now on!!!! Tell your fellow Chroniclers!!!!
Just having some fun and warming up with this little sucker. :P Digital painting is HARD. Holy Cow. I need to read up and study it more…it really sucks that my school teaches nothing about it at all.
Tahu: BADASS LAVA BOARD
Kopaka: BADASS ICE SHIELD
Onua: GEARS?! ARE THOSE GEARS?!
Pohatu: Boomerangs? This further supports my headcanon of him having an Australian accent.
Lewa: He looks like a bug… BADAXE!
Gali: Ugali. Kill it with fire. Or electricity. Or oil spills. Trash it, redesign it, re-do it all over again. You’re all fired.
Seriously though…Where is Onua’s DIGGING TOOLS? …Kopaka’s not fighting anything with that staff, and…Gali looks evil. Hahah I still am stoked to see what they do, but I hope this isn’t a reboot because those are NOT Mata toa, they are 100% Nuva. Yeesh.
Wow, there’s a ton of Gear Function in the Defenders. Retro.
New Speculation: I think the protectors will have a name above their title, and they will be Matoran or Turaga. (Turaga would be really, really stupid. I hope they are Matoran.)
I decided to take down the links to pics so that confidential images can stay confidential, but still…AHHH! I am pumped. They are wierd, but I am PUMPED.
I still have to snigger at people who are convinced that Lego is going to ditch the CCBS at some point
Keep dreaming buckos
It’s actually really, really good, minus the lack of compatibility with lego parts and a lot of technic elements. I like it’s aesthetic and feel a lot more.
D: The nuva cube has failed epically. Sadness.
