This is the danger of allowing namefags to lord over your general. Swear to not cause drama as they might, the very idea of someone having a reputation attached to a name (positive or negative) in close proximity to a generally anonymous platform is enough to upset people who come here to discuss anonymously. The only time I have seen Discord coexist peacefully with a general is the ESO general on /vg/. Because they vilify namefags and avatarfags, and the /tesog/ guilds all have very hands-off leadership, any "good boys club" nonsense is nipped in the bud. The discord channel is used almost exclusively for troubleshooting, ingame meetups, and voice chat for raids.

Unfortunately Bionicle isn't an MMO, so that kind of synergy is basically impossible for /biog/ and its Discord. The best possible outcome is essentially what we have now; two separate modes of communication, frequented by the same people, and tethered together by a central topic, but still ultimately isolated from each other.

Maybe the only problem with TTV is that they are more like "entertainers" now working for a company. Eljay did say that he was effectively "fired" and that his rewievs were "paid for". It may be the same for them as it is with Smosh, those dudes had pretty good videos until their company got bought and started giving out scripts to follow. They too had someone separating from them recently. I think ttvs videos aren't bad separately but god the brickfeed videos are cringe as fuck, you can basically hear them laughing when the script demands it, with minimal freedom.

Honestly though. If it really bothers everyone else here, why do y'all make a big deal out of it and totally derail 1 out of every 3 threads? Seriously, it always starts with some salty anon crying about the discord and some retarded discord fag jumping in to defend their treehouse. Like, ok, we get it. Thread-purists hate the discord. Discord fags like their clubhouse. We all know this by now. We dont have to spend half of every goddamn thread arguing about it.

The fact of the matter though is that neither is going anywhere any time soon. The discord isnt going to be deleted because some anons are buttblasted over it, but the thread isn't going to just disappear because these guys have a little circlejerk room. We all need to just get over it, move on, and talk about whats left of bionicle.

Now I'm going to be level with you here. I personally post in both. I've been in the discord for a long time, and I've been here in the thread for a year longer. I love our general here and think we ought to continue it, so much as to have posted the OP a couple times. I don't think we should let this thread get choked with dumb discord in-jokes, but at the same time I think its just being a dick to begrudge our threadmates the ability to have personal connections and friendships. Those arent things an anonymous general thread really allows for.

I believe that this tired subject only comes up so much because we're all worried about the longevity of our thread. This isn't a secret, our thread is really, really slow now with bionicle gone. We've had threads last 2-3 weeks in recent months. The only actually active threads we've had these last few months have been Discord Circlejerk threads. Thats not a healthy way to continue and will only intensify this divide you mention. Seriously, if we want the thread to die, the best way is to argue over the existence of the discord forever until both sides are so spiteful of the other that neither posts a new thread.

Alright, I need some tips on how to get a MOC contest better integrated into the thread since prizes/money are involved and it's much harder to guarantee who you're talking to and connecting the dots.

I suppose having a contest where the prize is "The next thread's OP will be your MOC" probably isn't incentive enough but I want to keep this place alive however I can.

>>6512916
Kahi is like four foot tall and has rickets

>>6512922
Just fuck it. They can join the discord then leave after the contest if they're so fussed about the physical prizes.

It's the easiest way to verify identity
>>
>>6512922
Just have entrants post their MOCs with tripcodes.
>>
>>6512930
Time stamps might be better. Don't the contests last like a month? Might be hard to contact potential winners or something.
>>
>>6512855
It may not be scripted per se, but it sure feels very forced sometimes, so most likely they have some guidelines for things they HAVE to talk about, even if they dont want to.

>Tuyet
I would've liked to see the Mask of Intangibility at least.

I'm curious too see how they would've made them. Was that monstrous look they had in the graphic novel something the artist cam up with or did he base that design on some early set sketches? Would have they looked monstruous like the Barraki or would have they looked more regal?
>Artakha
That one just bugs me. He was so important and interesting and yet he never got made. Even if he were awful I'm sure he would've had good parts.

>>6512219
>Angonce
I think he was supposed to be a serial only character. I don't think we would've ever had Great Beings sets unless in the very final years, and even then I'm sure they would've pulled some trick to not spoil their true form and release them as robotic figures like any other set. Maybe by recycling that "Hes/she downloaded his/her consciouness on a biomechanical body" trick Velika used.

>tfw this was a year ago and I didn't know it until now
Oh. So that's how it is. That sounds disappointing, but at this point with G1 closed it's not that we would've ever knew it in another way.
I did suspect it, that they were the same species. It made sense, though it kills a lot of charms they had, since they seemed so magical and powerful.
I rather go with my headcanon that they're another race entirely, but I understand why he revealed it.
How did the fandom react when it was revealed? I remember the Matoran creation system revelation caused a shitstorm.

>tfw Ekimu was the closest we ever got to an Artakha set
He really was.I'm glad we at least got a canon appearence and a toy form for the MoCr. It might've been intended for another universe but it fits Greg's description well, fits Artakha, so it's canon as far as I'm concerned.
Shame we couldn't have a Titan Ekimu, but that's how it went.
I bet that an Artakha set in 2007-2008 would've been white or lime. Definitely not sand green

Yes, I was talking about that. Pissed off a lot people. Personally, I didn't care because the lore post-2010 was so bastardized I didn't expect anything good anyway. I think it should've just remained a secret, like the GBs' nature and the Red Star.
>>

Thing is, the matoran thing would have actually been planned out ahead of time and they just didnt want to mention it to make it seem more mysterious and cooler than the reality. It was probably in the story bible.

I don't know about the GB's nature, but the Red Star's purpose was literally made up on the fly by Greg so that he could write a "Zombies on a Space Station" story (which he got bored of and didnt bother to write).

Yeah the Matoran creation system was probably decided during the early years.

The Red Star plot I was initially indifferent to, that is during my "Bionicle Dark Ages" (2012-2014). But now I'm as much as a Bionicle fan as I was in 2006 it makes me livid. Way to ruin one of the coolest mysteries from the MNOG. Fuck you Greg, just fuck you.

The Matoran or the Red Star? The Matoran, I'm fine with them being created (though I liked the more human approach G2 took too).
What I don't like is the "Turaga press a button on a machine and the Matoran comes out" angle, I just find it creepy that these senile robo-people are in charge of making more robo-people. There's something unsettling, and not in a cool way.
I would've preferred if it was Mata Nui who created them all at the beginning of the MU. Nothing indicates that Matoran had to be created during his sleep, there already were plenty, along the other races.

The Red Star, I would've just kept it a mystery, both its nature and its origin. Sometimes things are better if you don't reveal them. But if you really want an answer, I would've made it a simple celestial body of unknown origin that assists Mata Nui. No resurrection stuff and definitely no Kestora. It was one of the first ever Bionicle mysteries and just being soiled like that is infuriating.

He is, isn't he? Do adults or kids even care about him? As a kid I heavily disliked him, I didn't like that he just roared, it sounded cringeworthy to me. I also thought he looked ridiculous. He just screamed "Kids are gonna love this one :^)" But do kids these days like him?
>>
>>6515145
>How do you feel about "Then Mata-Nui mooned Teridax and he died and they all lived happily ever after" ?
Kind of indifferent to it, by late 2009 I really didn't care about Bionicle anymore: the characters I liked were dead or sidelined and the story was taking place in a planet in couldn't care less for, so I just kind of was "Eh, whatever". In retrospective, Teridax being killed like that sounds dumb on paper, but I don't know how Mata Nui could've otherwise defeated him without killing all the people inside in the process. Maybe by entering the "brain" and battling him from within? Maybe that would've happened if we got more sets.

I was replying to you about the Turaga, but the post is coming along so long I think I'll complete it in a second moment. I might be one of those in the community who dislikes Turaga the most so I'm good at writing rants about them.

Should get those two one of these days

>>6519546
The sets were fantastic and yet people shat all over them.
They did everything in their power to give us stuff we wanted like action features and better, more complex builds.
>>
>>6519546
Regarding the amount of parts and plastic the prize was on point.

What they failed to do was to make cheaper sets. Because of the building system consisting of multiple layers that are not visible to the eye, especially when viewed from, front, it was perceived that they are charging too much.

You could tell Lego made an attempt in the first wave, but everything after that with the exception of Umurak's first form was shit

all they had to do was just recapture G1 with a better building system, and that was it

Pretty sure this idea's been posted before, but I think G2 would have done a lot better if they made mostly Protector sized sets that combined into larger sets, but had larger "titan" sets on the side. It would kinda mirror G1 like that too.

That didn't come until later, though. The first 3 years, and to an extent the fourth, were relatively self-contained It's only around 2005 that they started to intentionally drag plot progression out over several years.

2001-2003 was an arc, then there was 2004-2005, 2006 somewhat to 2007 and 2008 and 2009 were self contained

I find it hilarious that Disney is related to both Lego's attempts at licensed ultrabuilds and neither of them took off.

But the problem is deeper than that. Remember Chima ultrabuilds? Remember how the second wave was yuuro only because no one cared? They were also in-house, so no licensing fees to be paid. Last wave of Invasion from Below shelf-warmed here well into 2015.

Now's just not the time for CCBS. Lego did the right thing in putting it on break for now. It'll come back eventually.

Where? Here where I live, they've gotten rid of most pre-R1 stuff via heavy discounts, but I don't think I ever saw Vader go down. If anything, he was the only one I had problems finding.

Or they could make smaller shells and bones for the Protector torsos and downsize the line to $10 heroes and villains with $20 Titans like they did back in G1. Honestly the biggest problem is with adding more detail, the figures keep growing. The SW figures have a shitton of interesting design choices but they're fucking gigantic. Smaller shells that are flatter around the sides, smaller gearboxes that utilize old classic 10 tooth gears, smaller torso shells, and maybe just a slightly redesigned small torso bone and they could easily make CCBS a more affordable theme. Hell, even just using the Mixel system and just making a new torso piece with a built in neck stub for minifigure heads. The real problem with CCBS is how big and clunky it is compared to System.

They're trying exactly that. Sure, this torso is very dependant on System, but it's easy to merge Technic and CCBS to it, as shown on the sets.

Wouldn't actually mind small scale CCBS set utilizing this torso
>>
>>6520235
I just think a solid one without the hinge and huge gap that requires a minifigure is all they need make a theme around it work.
>>
>>6520242
Well, you technically could use bricks with axle holes, Technic ball and one axle to connect the bonkle head to it, and fill the cavity at the same time

Seems like something that vast majority of sets has, both gens. G2 also has additional hip articulation on some sets

What a waste, all they had was to make the axles a bit longer, like on the Faxon for instance. I'm ready to do some light heresy and glue them to a Metru head so they stay in place. They just look too good.

I actually think part of the downfall was the lack of legit combiners, as well as the failure of the storytelling to be engaging (outside of the few books we got).
>>
>>6521807
Don't forget the lack of mystery
>>
>>6521807
>>6521874
Don't forget the lack of raising any sort of awareness. How's a kid supposed to give a shit about the storyline when most of it's tucked away in unadvertised obscure books, comics and an embarrassingly mediocre Netflix cartoon? All of which barely held together. '15 at least had the webisodes, and I can't believe I'm using those as a positive example.
G1 also had messy and disjointed storytelling tying the toys together, and that wasn't fixed at all in G2. Instead of producing coherent story content and making it accessible, they just made the story and most of the tie-in media so poor that going through the trouble of digging into them wasn't even rewarding.
>>
>>6521992
Yet other lines didn't have this issue (Elves,Ninjago, Nexo Knights) interestingly enough.
>>
Can somebody post the one moc built from Surge and Rocka's Combat Machine that had a feminine build and used the wings as swordhands? I think it was transformable too.
>>
>>6522015
This shit makes me so fucking sad. Why is it that Constraction sets are always cursed with poorly executed stories? We know that other lines get by just fine. Ninjago is fucking huge, I still can't believe it's getting an actual high-quality feature film, when all Bionicle G1 got were 4 mediocre direct-to-DVD's, Hero Factory only had webisodes that were dumbed down "to make it more accessible to kids" (even though Bionicle didn't need that), and the shitstain that was Bionicle G2. What the fuck.
Ninjago in itself is really just Bionicle-lite. Is LEGO trying to sabotage Bionicle? Is it part of their master plan to kickstart G3 with a Bionicle movie in the LEGO Movie-verse with Ekimu as the secret sympathetic villain? That would definitely make more sense than any other explanation to me.
>>

constraction in general, if they continually sabotage constraction, they'll be able to cut it without issue, which is what they're probably planning

Interesting, ain't it? When I browsed through the '15 catalog, the weird character names from all the other story-driven and licensed Lego lines were all clearly spelled out for kids, yet Bionicle G2's introductory wave wasn't allowed to name over half of its characters?
I remember back when G1 was canceled, there was a lot of talk about the lore getting out of hand and being too convoluted. That was true, but clearly the line had other problems as well that needed fixing. The tone, story and universe were some of its main draws if anything, but G2 dumped even those, without fixing most of the other issues -- like, as previously mentioned, the disjointed media that doesn't reach kids. You'd think the success of Ninjago and The Lego Movie would have taught them a lesson in promoting story-fueled toy lines, not to mention competing toy franchises like the media whore that is Transformers.

Shit, why am I even typing this, this has all been talked about endlessly during and after G2, it's not like there's anything left to say other than channeling more anger and disappointment. Though I guess there's some lessons to take away from all this, somewhere.

I would want a space theme Gundam style with robot protagonists fighting aliens. Something like this? I would also love to see more use of the Nexo battle suit armor. It could be about an army of aliens fighting Mecha heroes. The heroes could be robots and the small sets could be the battle suits. The big mechs could be a combination of both CCBS and system. It could ne a good theme for both CCBS fans and Space fans.

System stuff sells itself more easily I guess. Constraction still carries the stigma of "not muh legos", its library of parts is more limited, and most recent Constraction lines have failed for various reasons. It's easier to focus on stuff that sells rather than put money and effort into popularizing an unpopular product line.
