Here is the prototype of Gali, not 100% satisfied but it looks okay I think. I had difficulties trying to get an asymetrical skirt look with the vorox armor, but apart from the T-bars colour, it works perfectly and don't hinder articulation or the waist gimmick.

Here's a moc to hopefully distract everyone from the shittiness of UTD.

>While referred to by many names, he is only known across the galaxy by one - The Operative. A mercenary hired by whoever can afford him, usually the governments of far off lands, the Operative is a highly skilled, efficient, and deadly killer. Not much is known about this individuals past - not even Hero Factory coukd find information about hi. When hey hired him. What they do know is this - he's of an unknown species, wearing an incredibly bulky suit of armor that hides his true appearance. Given his current contract with Hero Factory to apprehend three dangerous fugitives, he was provided with a specialized chest plate, so that other heroes can identify him in combat. Of special note is his helmet - when asked, the Operative stated that a mission of his went off course to an uncharted system, where he found carvings and statues of the mask design in several temples. He snapped photographs and later integrated the design into his helmet. Despite his reputation as a violent killer, he has shown respect and even compassion towards other heroes - you would never guess what a violent killer he is.

The head really needs work - currently the mask is attached to a Mata head attached to a Mata hand, but that makes the neck too long. I can't find a smaller alternative that allows the MoL to attach.

Honestly I'm more proud of the weapon than anything, even though I'll probably mod it in the future to have a fore grip handle or some ther Tacticool shit like that.

>The Operatives has a XV-29 Modular Weapons System rifle which he has named "Fannie", after an ex-girlfriend. In his words, "That bitch was bad, but she was also crazy as hell. Felt fitting." Fannie could not be reached for comment. She is presumed dead. His current load out for the weapon features a Farshety Systems Reflex sight, Ion Castor plasma rounds, an extended stock, and a select fire switch.

I'm almost 100% certain this version of Ekimu is 100% preliminary in terms of color and design. His new mask would probably be unity compatible, and more than likely a blend of trans blue and gold

The first toa were ok, I can't say too much about them besides that they didn't use enough new armor pieces, but they had nice proportions. The new toa have the armor, but the proportions are out of whack again. What's worse is just how easy it is to fix most of their problems, yet lego refuses to add in the few new parts we'd need to make these things perfect. The skeletons, like the beasts, are incredibly underwhelming sets and both offer seemingly nothing new to the table. And it's the same problem again, they're so easy to fix, but Lego still can't take their fists out of their asses for long enough to add the few parts they'd need. UtD for example would look remarkably solid if his horns weren't so awful and if he actually resembled UtH at all. If he has trans yellow, I'll be satisfied, but after Pohatu consistently screwing us over, I have my doubts.

I disagree, full trans blue is a lot better for MOCing and I wouldn't say it looks bad currently.
>>
>>5409314
I'm guessing lego isn't confident enough to give us enough new parts because it's constraction, so most of their resources just go to the ninj-ima knights system sets.This would be a reason why they gave nexo knights a show on network television, while we had some webisodes and are now, finally getting a proper series on netflix.
>>
>>5409347
Yes.
Ok no, in all seriousness, pick up a creature of earth, fire or ice and hold it up to the light. It's head mold is semi translucent. I'm thinking just a bit more dilution, and it could be a legitimate trans gold

But fuck it, this wave is so ridiculous, I wouldn't even doubt sparkles

I'd like to see other types of builds a well but so far they've fucked up every time they've deviated from humanoids. LoSS and Skull Scorpion are universally reviled and LEGO seems to listen to the comments. Also humanoids work better with test groups.
Personally I think they should had gone wild with the creatures and beasts but without incorporating any build-distorting functions.

I'd rather not, I don't post pics of myself on the internet. Couldn't really give you a good sense of it in a picture without showing the whole face, anyway.

Just imagine a face swollen basically from the cheeks up (thickest swelling is on nose, cheeks, forehead, eyebrows), with a red rash everywhere that extends even behind the ears. Cover that with dry, dead peeling skin and you have me right now. At least I have some stuff to properly treat it. Calamine lotion and benadryl wasn't accomplishing shit.

Guess I've learned my lesson. "Eh, the safety data sheets don't apply to me, I can do this." -thbbbbt-

I probably would have been fine if I was wearing proper face protection. Went back and did a color test with clear resin and my blue oil paint that I finally found (pic related, may be too solidly blue) and noticed that the already irritated skin was reacting to the fumes. I think it was more contact than fumes, since I was screwing around with the solid stuff pretty carelessly five days before with no reaction, but either way I'll be sure to do it right next time.

A lot of the old lore was ridiculous and shit

2001-2004ish were god tier don't get me wrong, but fucking alternate universes and all the stuff like obscure shit that only ever gets mentioned once or seems like some intern's shitty OC isn't good

I'm glad that there's still some mystery in the reboot, although a tiny bit more lore and context would be nice
>>
>>5409985
>still more mystery

like what? seriously this is just a rehash of the original, Makuta is the evil shadow guy and Ekimu just replces the toa of light. all it did was replace god tier rahi technic sets with this beast shit where is my new exo toa armor? where are my mask packs?

Anyone else feeling let down by this reboot?

The first wave was really good, the protectors were small, nice sets and complimented the larger Toa nicely, while the bigger sets really nailed a good mix of nostalgic design and a modern look. Each one also looked different enough to be unique, but still look like a team.

The summer wave with bad guys was pretty meh, I only picked up the Skull Grinder vs Mask Maker, and that was only because of Ekimu.

Now the 2.0 Toa look alot worse. The fact that they all have the same tacky silver armor and bladed weapons make them look like some shitty Hero Factory sets. Ithink the colour scheme is my biggest complaint, it really looks ugly. The recently leaked summer wave doesn't look any better, Ekimu looks weird with those proportions, the beasts look, again, like some shitty hero factory rejects and Umarak himself is just big, but his tiny head on the massive body looks stupid.

I'm feeling mighty let down by lego. This was our theme they took from us true fans and just spit it in our face. No interesting new lore, no interesting new words or dictionary like our original superior G1 had. Not even video games, how the hell does Ninjago get games and high quality CGI tv series and not Friends tier netflix shit?

Is umarak just another minion created by makuta or has he been hunting the beasts for much longer?

The build system is not superior in something very important: variety

Not talking about the movies

In the comics, books, and MNOG they always talked

I don't really think your childhood interpretation of them as silent which is untrue should affect your opinion on the reboot as there are bigger problems with it but whatever
>>
>>5410039
I think what anon said is that there is mystery, but no immersion. MNOG and promotional material from 2001-2003 really immersed us on the world, and the 2015 animations didn't do this enough
>>
>>5410073
Must have been too busy with the big mystery JJ set up for Disney
>>
>>5410073
I agree with that, they have mysteries, and they are starting to expand the lore but there needs to be more presence for it and depth
>>
>>5410075
they should just release more sets and let the children play
>>
>>5410073
Revenge of the Skull Spiders is actually pretty good when it comes to immersion. It employs MNOG's strategy of taking the main focus away from the Toa and only catching small glimpses of their adventures.
The implementation is far from perfect and doesn't really manage to set up proper atmosphere, but the general idea is definitely there.
>>
>>5410038
>What do you like about them?
- whole unification gimmick works way better than that shit from 2007 and each figure simply looks amazing when combined, even with figures from different elements
- waist swivel as an additional point of articulation
- neat action functions on the beasts
- tons of Technic-integration
- even more parts than before
- shadow traps are way more complex than the spiders could ever hope to be
- what little issues they have like proportions, part arrangement, color distribution, etc. can easily be changed even with only the parts in the set, like switching Pohatu's shells around or flipping Umarak's shoulders so they won't look awkward anymore with the shadow trap deployed

The only things I'd complain about are that the secondary colors of the standard masks should've been trans, too instead of silver and that Kopaka's shoulder construction is pretty limiting.
>>
>>5410076

>>5410083
Ninjago and Nexo Kinights seem to get on fine with no mystery. Times have changed. What worked 15 years ago is a thing of the past. Its all about how kids can relate to a product and what they see, not some mystery no one cares about. Its why cape films are doing so well these days, we know the good guys will always win so keep repeating it.
>>
>>5410083
And I liked them only for the cool buildable robots angle. The media just felt like a toy-selling formality so I avoided it all.
>>
>>5410090
You couldn't be more wrong

The movies and some of the shit games for GBA or ps2, etc? Yeah those were made to sell toys

But stuff like the books or MNOG or the free comics were made to deepen the story

90% of the characters and stuff mentioned in those were never even released as toys
>>
>>5410092
>But stuff like the books or MNOG or the free comics were made to deepen the story
Nah, it was also to sell toys
>>
>>5410098
Oh, I see. So the reason they do none of that now is because they DONT want to sell toys. Got it.
>>
>>5410104
When Bionicle ended that fat guy who wrote the comics or whatever gave up because he wasn't getting paid to make any more children's book for it and went on to Ninjago. Whats the new writers name anyway? I don't really see much talk of him or the book. If someone could post some pages or link a free online version I'd be happy to catch up on what he got paid to write for this reboot.

>>5410104
It costs money and kids are different now. Making money was part of the goal but that doesn't mean it isn't good.

They don't really do it for true/old fans but I agree that they should have made okoto online game or whatever (probably for cell phones as kids love playing shitty phone games all day)

just get EA games or bethesda to make a skyrim with guns expansion pack that you can download and follow on all our tweter updates for bazinga nerds like urself and meself :^)

The only thing I wish they had for the reboot was takanuva. I mean ekimu is alright, but with all the references to g1 and the vahi and the nuva symbols takanuva would have been better. He's one of the original gang just as much as tahu/lewa/gali/onua/pohatu/kopaka as far as I'm concerned
>>
>>5410142
Hes not part of the original six though, he was an after thought for wave 2, which is why this wave 2 looks different. Its a good thing for a change to make it different and not boring again.

Skyrim? Why thats the greatest game of all time but fallout 4 would have been more appropriate seeing how it is skyrim with guns, therefore better.

>>5410145
If they wanted to make it so different they wouldn't have kept the Toa Mata in the first place

Or the Toa okoto now I guess or uniters or whatever they're called

It wouldn't be boring for the intended audience where 90% of there sales come from (the kids)

Let's get the clock ticking again then:

Any ideas on the printed pieces? I'm assuming Ekimu will get gold and silver rune designs to match the Uniters. The Beasts seem to have a crystal theme like the Creatures so I'm expecting that kind of designs on their chests, though I wish they could get some weird stuff like Umarak's chest design. And I think Umarak's chest stickers will match the Beasts' style since he's (sadly) pretty much a larger Beast.
>>
>>5410219
Umarak still retains some elements of his Hunter form, so I could see the chest design being based on that. Maybe a more savage version of what he has right now.

That's a sweet MoCr, even if we never get it. The chest will probably have some gold printing to cover up the trans light blue. The upper legs could do with larger shells or shorter bones. Is the other mask black or gunmetal? As much as I like gunmetal parts, black would probably work better.

I have a feeling that if the SW figures didn't exist, we'd just have the same Bionicle sets that we have now. It's not that the Star Wars sets eat up Bionicle budget, it's that Lego had room for another constraction theme and decided to give SW some figures.

We've had Ultrabuilds since 2012. It never really felt as if those sets (all with six figures per wave) ate up magic HF budget.

No idea, but they are most surely real, the thing with fake leaks is that they general have no new pieces, and are made extremely blurry to hide this fact as well as the differences in photography vs. CG, they also have a tendancy to look like MOCs rather than actual sets.

Switched some parts around on Lewa. I thought his leg design was unique but it was too restricting on his foot movement. I also switched around his smaller swords with his 2015 ones.

I don't use his sword things like the set. I mostly use it so he holds one sword and the other sword sits on the swivel on the back of his hand similar to wings.

what gave you that idea?
the only difference between the new "spine" parts and the old ones are that they no longer have ball joints where arms should go and have a gear where the hip ball joints would go.

The shape of the torso and the technic pins make it stupidly easily to make a gearbox with the right pieces. You literally need four pieces total to make the outline of a gearbox.

Long time ago, even if the summer canisters sets where complete horse shit, we still had the titans which some of them where pretty imaginative (Gadunka, Vezon & Fenrahk), now the TLC has gotten lazy and we only get four sets of questionable quality. Heck they are an Invasion from Below reharsh, applying poor building techniques in their structure, Enkimu looks pretty bad with those HF foot pieces from five years ago, Umarak hands look crappy as fuck, they are professional designers, they must put more effort at making this sets aesthetically appealing, they are saving big bucks releasing all this crappy sets, just look at the horrendous Pohatu color scheme, the whole new Gali design, and Kopaka terrible balance of colors. I can't even explain their weird fetishism with gunmetal, grey and silver, 2015 sets could have been GOAT if they had uniform and colorful color schemes and a new foot piece.

I would happily pay that much for a titan-sized set, yes.

I think the problem is that the big bad for both years so far is too similarly-proportioned to the Toa. That's fine for the lesser villains like the Skull Squad or the Elemental Beasts, as they only fight 1 or 2 Toa at a time. But the main villain needs to seem like they can handle taking on 6 Toa at once. Every year of the original run had at least 1 villain set that was much larger than the Toa that were available at the time.

You don't want masks, you want shoulder parts.

This means CCBS Hero Factory/Star Wars shoulders, Nuva shoulders, or Knight's Kingdom rounded shoulder armor.

There's a lot of ways to do tits. Velken69, DawnofNSSD, Hugebricks, and Vezonisme are all good names to look at for inspiration and on occasion actual instructions that you can use to make your lady with giant tits.

On Bricklink this translates into the Bionicle, Hero Factory, and Large Figure Part parts sections as being your most useful when picking out ass n' tiddy parts.
>>
>>
>>
One of the problems with NSSD's stuff is that it's both really simple and usually involves some heresy. For this reason, it pays to look around and find other guys who've MOCed ladies to find techniques to imitate or for other ideas.

There's a whole bunch of other guys on Tumblr, Flickr, and even Brickshelf who've made fat titties n' ass, so yeah.

The weapon has too much mass for two gears of friction to handle. Even Gali has that problem but her weapon has less mass, so it falls much slower.

Add another gear or two inside of Grinder's arm cylinders or take the extra gear from Ekimu. I'm sure one gear is enough for the little guy to handle his hammer.

I actually really like this. The colour scheme needs fixing, but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the construction. Could you show us how to build it? Nice tits. I'd recommend removing the foot stickers if you can't fix their placement. They don't add much to the piece anyway.

Very good points. I made this in kind of a hurry, so the wings are just lifted straight off of the Ant Man set, but I've done the smaller axles on it before and they work fine.

That looks pretty alright, considering how little you're probably able to work with. The shaping is great, but the colors, not so much. Needs a more coherent color scheme. Maybe find a color that compliments green or dark green. Or only use green and dark green. Also, try putting the big green parts on the thighs on the sides instead of the front.

Here are some tools to help you get started
>Lego Digital Designer
http://ldd.lego.com/
>Bricklink
http://alpha.bricklink.com/

Bricklink is a user to user shop for lego parts. You'll be wanting to use this site to order anything you don't have on hand.
LDD is exactly what it sounds like. It's great for planning out a moc before ordering parts from Bricklink, or tooling around with parts you may not have. The downside is that it's short on a few older and newer Bionicle parts.

he was like an old rich king that fought in a war
after his son died in battle he became a lich to try to find a way to bring his son back
after decades of losing his mind and his skin decaying, he started gold plating his own bones and now spends his time attacking passerby to take their money
or something like that, I don't know

>A former Matoran working a 9 to 5 shift in a mine, the honest and hardworking Bolax lived a simple life. A wife and daughter. A small house and farm near the mountains he worked. All was well, until one day his legs were broken in a mine shaft explosion that killed his best friend. He was let go and denied workmans comp, leaving him with no way to provide for his family. In a rash move, he offered to do a job for some thugs from Alakawats. However, after the job went south, he came home to find his wife and daughter gutted, their entrails strewn across the charred remains of his house. He went after the thugs for revenge, but soon found himself outnumbered. With an ax strike to his head, Bolax fell down a deep chasm, seemingly killed.

>Things were not as it seemed. Near death at the bottom of the chasm, Bolax soon found himself surrounded by Skull Spiders, yet they didn't attack him. Their leader, the Lord of Skull Spiders, came up to him. "Who did this to you?" he asked through a raspy, insect-like voice. "T....The...." Bolax could not answer, but LoSS knew what he was saying. With a wave of his staff, Bolax was covered in Skull Spiders, the metal of their body melting around him. He was transformed into a powerful golem-like creature, forever indebted to the LoSS. The LoSS decided that, with this new, powerful body, he needed a new name, one that would strike fear into the hearts of those who opposed him. From this day forth, he was no longer known as Bolax. He was... Bon-Bon. Bon-Bon, who travels the world looking for the men that killed his family. Bon-Bon, who lives in the shadows. Bon-Bon, who rights whatever wrongs he sees. He is Bon-Bon, the Spider Prince.

I guess they have weird incubators that they throw stuff in. Presumably, after a good amount of time, they pop out. Continuing with these assumptions, every year more or less, they put these children into a pod to grow them until they are fully grown.With this, I will make a giant leap and say that the toa were protectors that ekimu had incubating long enough to be large warriors, which would explain what the skull warriors were. The skull warriors may have also been over incubated warriors that died long ago, thus their size is explained.
I don't know if this could explain anything about Umarak, but that's all I could pull out of my ass. Feel free to continue my madness.
