Question is there anything redeeming about the new setting at all? I haven't actually taken the time to catch up on the new story, but we just had another big nostalgia thread in /tg/ about Bionicle.

The pictures on the back of the boxes haven't been giving me much optimism about it honestly.
>>
>>5430732
There isn't the same level of intrigue and mystery as the first few years of G1 but it's decent. It's actually fairly similar in some ways. I'd say it isn't any better or worse but just different.
>>
>>5430732
I think you should wait for The Journey to one Netflix original and see how it is, so far the new bonkle has been lacking in media exposure.

The only real problem is that 2015 barely delivered any story content. The few pieces of media that did have notable worldbuilding did an excellent job and there's still lots of untapped potential, so it should continue getting better with every piece of content we get this year.

What...how are they even playing an RPG with such retarded rules?
>>
>>5430732
The story and setting are actually pretty good, unfortunatly last year they decided to have the only storytelling material for most of the year be these shitty 90 seconds animations which had awkward pacing due to their short run time.

If one ignores those and reads between the lines a bit to see the stuff that the story team actually put together versus how it was presented to us, you see a pretty cool setting. Basically instead of villages in different regions like 2001's island, you have an island that was originally just all the same biome and the villagers all lived in cities be it the capital city or the city of the mask makers, the capital ended up being turned into a crater after the great cataclysm caused by Ekimu and Makuta's battle (this cataclysm also fucked with the island itself, causing the six elements to basically manifest themselves and completely change most of the island except for a single corner which happened to be protected from the shockwave by the mountain in the middle of the island), and the city of the mask makers was later abandoned due to an invasion by monsters.

Also way before that you had six avatars of the island's elements come into being in the form of what are basically ancient / wise dragons but in the forms of a bug-like creature, shark-like creature, etc. and a being born the shadows at around the same time who's sole purpose is hunting them down.

The villages the villagers eventually moved to havent been covered too much because there are multiple villages in each elemental region so they never bothered going into detail about all of them and the villagers eventually end up moving back to the city of the mask makers anyway.

The main weakness of the setting versus G1s is the lack of terms for everything like in G1, basically everything that was in "matoran language" is just said in english now, so 'Kanohi' is just mask, "Wahi" is just region, and so on.

It will probably be worth it in the end, I've had the Bahrag since 02 and have always liked them, their only problem is the over-reliance on elastic bands and those green ones always snapped for me, I need to get more eventually.

From what we've seen the story is a bit better than last years, not simper. Perhaps they meant something more along the lines of 'straightforward', since last years story was confusing in how poorly presented it was for most of the year. (Unless they meant in comparison to G1)
>>
>>5431025
I sure hope the comparison was with G1. Even if the media representation was a bit messy, I don't see anything in the 2015 storyline that could confuse kids to the point where Lego immediately decide they need to cut back on the complexity.

totally not bahrag.jpg
717 KB, 532x4846
>>5431002
Well, part of the reason I started this is that Bahrag are one of the 5 sets I'm still missing from complete 02 collection (rest are Pahrak Va, Nuhvok Va, Tahnok Va and Power pack), and while everything else is in my parts bin as a fucking mess, it's the thought that counts.

And I am planning on replacing the rubber bands with generic ones if I ever make it that far

>>5431004
Exactly. And no one knows if it'll be cheaper. Generally stuff like this is cheaper to part out, but it really depends on many things.

And because totally no one asked, here's what I have so far.
>>
>>5431034
I feel like they were probably going over their whole G2 gameplan and the person who wrote the article linked there just sort of interpreted that way, remember what we know of the story this year versus last year:

2015
>Toa get summoned
>Toa find golden masks
>Toa get to city entrance and beat up LoSS
>Toa go into city and beat up skeletons
>Toa wake up Ekimu and beat the big bad skeleton
2016 (from what we've seen)
>Toa get upgraded and go find the elemental creatures
>Creatures tell them they hid the mask of control in a labyrinth on an island
>Toa go there and find Umarak, a being as ancient as the creatures who wants to hunt them
>Umarak gets mask of control and eventually puts it on
>Umarak turns into some sort of huge monster

Even without all the information I would hardly call the 2016 story 'simpler' than the 2015, more straightforward perhaps.

What is a good piece of information is that now we know for a fact that the series is four 22 minute long episodes
>>
>>5431040
What all parts are you still missing there? I don't see the blue and red +oo+ pieces, nor the white technic axles and half axle half pin pieces, nor the ribbed hose piece or the round piece the eyes go on, is there a reason you are having difficulty parting these together?
>>

>>5431049
>is there a reason you are having difficulty parting these together?
Simple. I just went to biggest store on the country and got everything I could scrape together. But as of now, the project is on hold before I get some more money. Other stuff I'm missing is more or less the hinge-pieces on the legs, some Technic bits and bobs, Pahrak-shields from the feet, antennae for the both, every single gear, every hose (some of those are surprisingly rare), one red Bohrok half and the white Technic parts for the teeth. Again, not so common.

And yes, I am ready to order internationally.

I just want good 2016 pictures ASAP to stop some of the shitposting. I personally like all the beasts and feel like all the disappointment in the 2016 summer sets stems from Umarak, who we were looking forward to the most. If the actual model for Umarak proves to look really good and the iffy-looking prelim was simply a matter of poor posing or CGI errors, then I feel like people will warm up to the summer sets pretty fast.

Never would've I thought that I would be glad that only Creatures come with Shadow Traps.

I did some cleaning and digged up a bucketful of Skull Spiders I just don't have room or will to display them.
>>
>>5431142
see I really don't get the hate on the beasts, it's not like the skeletons where exposed ball joints on both the torso (which was a terrible inexcusable flaw that plagued all the 2015 sets but whatever) and on the limbs, and then there was scorpio who was just a weird set.

The beasts have consistent color schemes (a splash of trans-neon green here or there but its not as jarring as the trans-orange on the skull villains), cool head designs, and varied and cool silhouettes, Lava beast looks like some kind of imp or demon with his short legs but scary looking head, Quake beast looks intimidating with his bulky frame and especially bulky crystal arm, and Storm beast has an awesome lean look with terrifying looking claws. The shadow traps sticking out of them in places also gives them a strange, very evil feel.

god I love how tight the new masks are, you can actually move the Toa's heads by the mask if you want, you dont have to pinch your fingers onto an exposed part of the head and carefully move it, you can just grab the head anywhere and turn it as you will, its so much nicer.

That is literally how Terak works, aside from achieving the same but with only two gear pieces.

>>5431199
Looks fine, though seems a little bit overkill on complexity when a simple gearbox piece would do.

>Beasts come with corrupt versions of Tahu, Onua and Kopaka's masks
>it's almost entirely possible to make 'corrupt' versions of these Toa AND their beasts using Umarak's colour scheme, minus a couple of pieces (such as no 3L shells in Trans Br. Green)

There is nothing wrong with asymmetry. Only Lava beast has shitty legs, Gunmetal isnt bad, trans lightblue, and trans blue with trans bright green accents isnt that bad, Gali pulled it off with worse colors in 2015.

What even are you talking about new shell color?
>>
>>5431238
Mountain Dew parts?

Lava beast is literally the best set in the wave and there is nothing wrong with assymetry

If he used the vanilla gearbox both arms would swing in oppositie directions, he wanted them to swing in the same direction like the was doing a sledgehammer.

>>5431273
In that case you could have probably just torn Terak's back off and stuck it on there.
>>
>>5431043
This. There's 0% chance of the story being simpler seeing as the animations added up to 30mins. While JtO is 88mins total. And the fact that we know we have another graphic novel and two more books coming.

I can understand why kids got confused since 2015 was a clusterfuck in terms of media.

>>5430834
The halfassedness of 2015's story material really fucked it over. I don't think Genwunners would be complaining about the story so much if the animations showed, or described this.

So if the Six Critters were born from elemental essence around the same time as Umarak, does this mean that Shadow is the "Seventh element?"

>>5431336
Nah, G2's Takanuva will probably be next year, but this would be an anti-Takanuva.

>>5431336
While Shadow seems to be more than just another element, I can actually see "Toa Umarak" happening in a way. The enemy for 2017 might very well be Makuta, and Umarak's probably going to be mighty cheesed at the guy who forced him to wear an evil mutating mask.

Subjective.

Ikir's cool but the open ball joints are kind of obnoxious on him and there isnt a whole lot of ways you can pose him.

Uxar's really cool and has a very sleek design, but his wingtips are hard to keep organized since they are connected by blue pins, and his wingspan is so huge its hard to fit on a shelf.

Terak is cool looking and has neat colors but his function is really lame

Melum is basically a worse-looking Terak but with a much better function

Akida is a really cool creature who feels way larger and more substantial than all the others despite being considerably smaller in terms of surface area than Uxar, the guns are kind of weird and there isnt a WHOLE lot of ways you can pose a fish, but the set is really good

Ketar is a mess, but has a certain sort of underdog charm to him

+ masks made with the new mold stay on heads without assistance
+ when heated, the mold produces masks with crisper detail than masks cured at room temp
+ I made sure to brush all the little debris off this time when making the mold, so detail is perfect

- the working time of the solid resin that I have causes it to begin to solidify before I can finish pouring
(maybe this can be solved by mixing equal concentrations of it and the transparent resin - result would still be fully opaque, but maybe take longer to solidify)

I've got a setup where fans blow the fumes into the ventilation system in my bathroom, which seems to be working alright... I haven't been having issues like before now that I'm fully protected, but maybe I should lay off until the current rashes (leftovers from before that are nearly diminished) clear. I have noticed that being near fumes when they are uncovered makes them tingle...

Damn weather doesn't let me do this outside... the cold doesn't help the curing at all. Though maybe that would increase the cure time so I could get the mask filled... no wind though...

Four were standard sized figures each with little to distinguish them from others except for a new spiky armour piece that looks like a molar tooth and several components in trans-light blue. The larger Umarak the Destroyer is not much different to his current Hunter incarnation except for a darker colour scheme and a new jaw element.

>>
>>5431718
Everyone basically shitposts when it comes to Bionicle, nobody except kids and fans care about it because there isnt any way to treat it as "muh mature hobby im totally like an engineer" as with normal lego system.

Basically this guy is full of shit though he is pretty much correct about certain things, like the spiky armor piece. The trans-light blue thing has got to be a load of shit since its clearly trans-neon green or something similar , and there is really no way he could compare UtD to UtH considering how very fundamentally different they are.

So basically he must have just glanced at it and been like "eh its like this I guess'
>>
>>5431929
>Everyone basically shitposts when it comes to Bionicle, nobody except kids and fans care about it because there isnt any way to treat it as "muh mature hobby im totally like an engineer" as with normal lego system.
I never understood this. Why is shit like Transformers okay but Bionicle is bad? Is it everyone or just AFOLs and if so, does that make AFOLs the gamers of Toys?
>>
>>5431866
That's because most of them are either pretty young teens who got into Bionicle in 06, or manchildren who don't necessarily understand how adults, even in the lego community, view Bionicle.

I mean we're autistic manchildren here, but I would like to think most of us are jaded enough on everything to trust our own impressions over someone who clearly doesnt give a shit about bionicle and makes astronomical assumptions like "my friend barry said something about they were simplifying the story or something so thats why these sets lack innovation" rather than someone who is actually knowledgeable about the matter being "they were likely referring to this generation versus G1 since that has been a statement they made at NYCC and this year shows absolutely no signs of lower story complexity than last year considering the introduction of more names on sets, as well as a more interesting backstory on the villain, these sets look similar to the other ones because it is using the same building system and basic aesthetic, the bestial limbs and heads are what indicate these characters as monsters rather than the hero characters."
>>
>>5431940
Transformers has a LOT more brand recognition, though collecting them is still kind of looked down upon by most adults, people can sort of get it.

Bionicle has less brand-name recognition and automatically loses some points for being basically a spin-off of Lego, and considering it doesnt use the same building system and the AFOLs hate on it so much since it reinforces the unimaginable idea that lego is a toy for children, it is easy for one to dismiss it as some cheap garbage thrown together that nobody really cares about.
>>
>>5431945
Bionicle is literally 15 years old though, surely views on it would've changed as nostalgia set in?

Yeah, so AFOLs are basically the gamers of toys, thanks for confirming that. I can't help but wonder how they felt about the fact Brick By Brick implied that Bionicle was actually important.

>>5431968
I buy a system set once in a while just for variety, but I've never really found any of them particularly interesting. And despite the objectively worse price-per-piece, constraction sets feel way more worth their money just from the rough size of the final product.

I used to be into lego, but I really only cared about castle / fantasy sorta themes like Vikings and to a lesser extent castle, with minifigures fighting dragons or other such monsters, and also enjoyed exo-force, though sadly lego makes the most generic as fuck mechs imaginable now and sticks ninjas or knights in them instead, I really don't buy a lot of sets anymore because none of the settings or themes interest me anymore.

>>5432167
To be fair I have no idea what color it is in. looks like pure gunmetal, pure black, or maybe gunmetal mixed with trans orange, it could be preliminary though, as blended parts dont really show up until much after prelims (protector masks in winter 2015, drained golden masks in summer 2015), and the part that is blended on the mask isnt blended here, and I doubt they would change around the molding process considering the relative complexity of the Umarak mask mold with the edges of the two colors being clearly defined and consistent.

Whichever it is, that mask is one of the most impressive / cool looking masks this gen, so getting it in another color / another blend would be greatly appreciated, if it is trans orange it would be pretty sweet, I can imagine how that would look where the trans color comes in front of the face in that little mouth damage protrusion thing, with trans orange it would be quite a cool looking sight.

It just looks like every other lego theme where the whole series is just shitty vehicles instead of any kind of buildings aside from (kind of) the castle.

I'd be infinitely more into system sets if they actually made everyday buildings anymore instead of just rehashing the same city vehicles every couple of months.
>>
>>5432257

Personally I wouldn't mind bionicle getting a break in favour of a new constraction theme, especially one managed by someone who will tap into it's full potential rather than pussyfoot and follow LEGO traditions such as the enemies being creepy crawlies (specifically spiders, scorpions and snakes), play function gimmicks, and underground/underwater/jungle year where the entire team gears up specifically for it.

The single most important thing that LEGO blantantly refuses to address is their age group. The constraction lines are aimed at teens. Teens play games with violence, swear, crave sex, prize alphaness and have the potential to grasp complex concepts. You can't just print a 12-17 on a Thomas the Engine box and expect highschoolers to buy it.

Now, I'm not saying that LEGO should make a Duke Nukem line (though I'd shower them with money if they did). They just need more complex-looking sets (piece appearance and colour distribution), better music (music that the average person could casually listen to even without knowing where it's from) and more adult imagery.

Course when I say adult imagery I don't mean strip clubs, concentration camps and onscreen killings. I mean better posing, a palette that doesn't exclude dark or vibrant colours, and more detailed environments that can set the mood for what takes place in them. And of course a more serious character/set design like in the skull squad concept art.
>>
>>5432444
I really wish lego would branch out from everything being fucking vehicles nowadays, I know its all that sells, but considering how uncommon the structure-type sets are nowdays, when thats fundamentally what lego is best at creating, its kind of frustrating

>>5432450
Lego would never make something quite that edgy, remember they still have their whole pseudo-non-violence thing, and constraction is AIMED at younger kids, but I feel like they should change things around a bit yeah.

Bionicle as a theme is honestly pretty great in my opinion, contraction works best for robotic-looking / armored things, and bad for standard humans, as the star wars CCBS line has proved, Bionicle on it's own has plenty of potential for complexity and what have you, as G1 proved (though it kinda went overboard at the very end), a refocus on contraction to be aimed at all ages by being aimed at an older audience (younger kids will always think that whatever the teenager thinks is cool must be super cool), and not being afraid to go for some more complicated storytelling.

Half the people who owned G1 bionicles couldnt give a damn about the story, they knew that you had these good guys with elemental powers that looked cool, and you had these bad guys who also looked cool, thats all they needed to know, the story content is needed to keep people interested who want more from their figures so that they will continue to be invested in the line. I still think G2 has potential, it just needs better story presentation, which HOPEFULLY JtO will give us (though I've watched other lego series like the new nexo knights one, it's pretty cringeworthy, far more than even the 2015 animations), the problem is that unless the line gets greenlit for more years, it might be too little too late.

IMHO the biggest problem with Bionicle right now is the designs are getting more mature and complex, but the story is becoming more childish and simple. You can tell the designers want a really serious and mature universe but the writers want it to be as muted and "child friendly" as possible.

To be fair, last years Toa designs were pretty childish / 'toyish' looking, and while the skeletons fixed that, their whole spooky skeleton thing felt a bit too cliche and silly to be intimidating.

The cool, complex looking characters and designs are coming forth this year, and we havent got any story material for this year yet.

just turn the current upper leg the other way around so that it faces the same way as the big guy's upper leg, and then do a very small mod to the lower legs (turn the 2m technic bits with two axle holes sideways to offset the glatorian neck by one module form the socket piece) to make them an exact clone of Storm Beast's lower legs.

Technically not QUITE what I meant, but honestly that looks way better than what I was thinking of. so overall looking pretty sweet.

If I had one complaint it would be that the area where the tail meets the body looks kind of bare, but not sure how you coud fix that, other than that you need to get more spikes so that orange raptor can have all the spikes too.

Robot dinosaur villains were originally planned for bionicle G1 before it was cancelled.

Honestly, I don't know why Lego hasn't revisited this, the jungle setting on okoto is perfect, you could have biting/clawing/tail swinging functions, and it would finally provide an opportunity for some interesting non-humanoid CCBS builds. More interesting than spooky skeletons anyways.


Plus, kids fucking love dinosaurs, they would sell like crazy
>>
>>5432853
If nothing else, the new beast heads should work pretty well as dinosaur heads, so we can at least MOC some.
>>
>>5432860
Yeah but mocs don't matter as much for me I guess

When I create something, its always something that already existed in the lore, and I have never ever given anything a name or backstory because that just seems a tad too autistic for me (no offense, but I really don't know any other ways to describe it. This site has ruined me)
>>
>>5432853

>>5432873
He's completely correct, GregF once posted the sort of unfinished script for the next bionicle movie after TLR and at the end they go to Bota Magna and there are robot dinosaurs there.

It's also mentioned in one of the serials when Lewa, Miserix, Vezon, Helryx, and I think someone else too get warped to Bota Magna and see the Robot Dinosaurs there.
>>
>>5432894
Nigger, those were regular dinosaurs with metal shit sticking out of them. Not robots.
Cyborgs.
Why do people have such a difficult time grasping the concept?
>>
>>5432906
its too much work to say biomechanical, considering these things never got sets, or names, or anything at all except a passing mention, someone calling them robot dinosaurs instead of biomechanical or cyborg dinosaurs isn't something to get that mad about.

All I need from bricklink is small and large barbs, $0.01 each. I don't know what else I should get to meet the minimum buy requirements. Any suggestions on generally good parts for MOCing?

Honestly, needlessly restricting yourself to only building things that are canon seems more autistic to me than people who came up with backstories for their mocs.

So I'm on bricklink for the first time. I just want to get big and small white barbs, but I'm having trouble finding places that sell both in quantities I need and ship to my country. If the store I want to buy the parts from has nothing else I want, do I need to buy useless shit I don't want just to meet the minimum buy?
>>
>>5433170
Try using the wishlist function, it's great for finding stores with everything you need.
As for stores with a minimum buy, generally yes, you need to meet their purchase limit. Some stores MIGHT be willing to let you go under if you bargain but I wouldn't count on it. My advice is just throw some rare Kanohi in your cart, they're fun to collect and tend to drive the cost up easily.
Also try to avoid buy from other countries if you can,even if their parts are cheaper, because international shipping can be a BITCH.

Kulta is very cool and a much better bad guy than that shitty animal fucker Umarak.

Kulta was a fucking tool who got jobbed by a sleepy grandpa and locked in a gimp closet by some glorified matoran and their snake friend.

Umarak's a maverick who told Makuta to go fuck himself and stole his mask for his own frisky deeds.

Your post reminds me though, I oughtta rebuild Kulta for a side-by-side with his better replacement.

I asked my little brother to play a "play game". with me sometimes.

Thanks ! What about the neck ? I mean Onua always had the head placed lower and more forward, like a hunchback.
>>
>>5434303
Just because it has in the past, doesn't mean you should now. Not either of those anons but I don't really think it's an improvement on the base set.
>>
>>5434303
If you're gonna try to make him hunchback, at least line up the shoulders with the neck. He looks terrible from the pecs-up.
>>
>>5434309
Well, for me G2 Onua is a bulky guy with this kind of neck, but with that said, Onua is already a good figure on its own so I can see why you would say that, yeah.

Oh, also, the unity gimmick still works, I don't have terak yet but I've tested with ikir and other creatures, I've modified the placement of the unity piece so everything is working.
>>
>>5434320
>G2 Onua is a bulky guy with this kind of neck
He doesn't look a bulky guy with that neck. He looks like a turtle wearing muscle padding.
>>
>>5434257
I wouldn't say it's gorgerous

The effects look nauseating and the music should be louder.
And the narrator for the two words he says sounds really bored.
But that isn't much. Maybe when we get an actual trailer I'll make my judgement.
>>
>>5434315
Yeah, you're right about that, I'll see what I can do, it's true that it would look better with the shoulders being one module higher.
>>
>>5434329
It's a character trailer you idiot, and the artstyle and effects are gorgeous. I bet you thought Ocarina of Time looked better than Wind Waker too.

I love the more mechanical, bonkly look the 2016 sets have but man do I like 2015 Tahu more than his 2016 version. Literally 2 standard red parts on the entire set and they're covered up by those obnoxious flame energy things. I tried putting some red on his arms but his mask is pretty much Metru red and they don't even match anyway. 2015 Tahu looks so much more uniform.
>>
>>5434413
As much as I love them, the big issue I have with the Uniters are their attempts at unique shoulder designs with pretty much all of them but Gali's and maybe Tahu's falling flat.
Onua and Kopaka's are especially questionable and it seems that sooner or later something WILL crack there unless modded due to stress on the flimsy construction.
Hell, the pieces on Onua's sides seem to be mainly there to keep the section above from sinking down too much with making him look bulkier being only an afterthought and Kopaka's shoulders also limit the range of movement he has, meaning that he can't do such simple things as raising his arms straight up.

Umarak is better

All 2015 but Skull Basher and Skull Warrior. In 2016, Umarak, Lewa, Tahu, Pohatu, and their creatures.
>>
>>5434632
I don't have any of the exclusive masks besides the common as fuck Hero Pack, I've got every 2015 set. For 2016, I still need Lewa plus Gali, Pohatu, and Tahu along with the last three's creatures.

If Journey to One turns out as good as it seems so far and is able to reach the correct audience through Netflix, it's going to give Bionicle's popularity a huge boost. Just today, I saw some kids freaking out about Nexo Knights in front of a store window because "THOSE WERE ON TV!!!!", so it's clear how much of an effect this kind of stuff can have.

>>

Well, JtO has had no trailer outside the one character preview on the Facebook page, and it's on Netflix, not TV, so they have to actively search for it.

It'll flop. Guaranteed.
>>
>>5434697
It seems that there are at least a bunch of kids hanging around on Netflix.
>“Roughly half of our 65 million members around the world regularly watch kids’ content and with the addition of these seven diverse original series we are continuing our strong investment in kids programming,” said Andy Yeatman, director of global kids’ content for Netflix.
And doesn't Netflix have suggestions or something like that? Still not as powerful as just having the show pop up simply by sitting in front of the screen, but better than having to actively search for it.

Seriously though, if JtO is good and still ends up flopping because of shitty marketing, I'm going to be pissed.
>>

Isn't Netflix like really fucking popular in US but not that much in Europe?

And isn't the largest constraction decline in US? I mean, remember those Chima sets they didn't get.

My camera's battery is dead but I've got some recent trans-yellow that I tested against a 2001 eyestalk and a power miners crystal monster.

Doesn't glow even the slightest bit.
>>
>>5434776
HOLY FUCK
>>
>>5434738
>trans yellow
I still can't believe it, there is no fucking way they would introduce a new color, trans neon green looks yellow under certain lighting conditions so maybe thats the case (I would prefer yellow of course).

I still really dont get what everyone hates on the summer sets for, these looks way better than the skull villains to me, perhaps having only five sets makes us expect a higher value out of each one, but when they turn up to be more or less the same as Lewa, Gali, and Pohatu, they're considered bad sets?
>>
>>5434776
Does Umarak come with a second mask?
>>
>>5434738
The rather positive light this guy paints Umarak in makes me think he might actually look a lot cooler than he did on the boxart. seems like Storm Beast's head piece is in standard blue and Quake Beasts head is in Trans purple.
>>
>>5434807
There's always a certain percent of people who aren't going to be satisfied with anything, and a portion of them do come around once sets are finally released .

I'm personally pretty hyped to finally have a color that fits really well with gold.
>>
>>5434807
The fact that it's on Storm Beast pretty much seals this as legit trans yellow for me. The usual lightning colors are blue and yellow, not blue and green, so randomly adding green pieces to the set would just be trolling.
>>
ANY of you fucking idiots actually doubted the legitimacy of the leaks we got? Are you serious? They were so obviously real from the start. Was the denial so strong that you ACTUALLY thought leak-forgers had upped their game in resources by about 1000%? Jesus, people.
>>
>>5434257
I just know its going to be a cringefest, but still, after watching nexo knights and seeing how fucking godawful that was, looking at this JtO footage really makes Bionicle feel slightly more "classy" I guess.
>>
Yeah, I'm not buying "word of mouth" confirmation that it's actually trans-yellow. There is no way you can convince me until I actually see in-hand pictures. Fuck you guys.
>>
>>5434840
See, personally I would love if it was ACTUALLY trans-yellow, but we have been gipped out of that color so consistently in G2 bionicle that I am skeptical still.
>>
>>5434785
Son of a bitch

I really hope the reporter is wrong, I don't want some lame color that doesn't even glow.
>>
>>5434846
well it's better than not having a new trans-color at all

I hope we see it incorporated into a mask at some point
