I think its popularity so many years after relies on the fans growing up and reading up on the storyline. It's so rich that you have to appreciate all the effort that's been put into it and the Bionicle universe is fleshed out really well.

>figured it wouldn't matter
I'm not really bothered by it; if you think that your post merits its own thread then by all means create your own thread. Now that I think about it, this may have been better off as its own thread because we've been able to have a discussion about it.

I'm going to write a thesis that will make bionicle books part of obligatory education. Wish me luck.
>>122
This is but the beginning. By 2100 Bionicle will become compulsory religious study.

Leaks/Rumours/Upcoming themes Legoman 03/11/2020 (Wed) 20:35:06 No.320 [Reply] [Last]
Post the latest Lego leaks, rumours, or upcoming themes here. Lego's just announced a Mario line and this is the rumored set line up. 71361 is a CMF wave according to the rumors, which should prove interesting. CMF Series 20 was revealed at the NY Toy Fair. The Mandalorian is getting 2 brickheadz and the long-awaited Razor Crest

>>1085 >>1086 How badly IS Vidiyo doing, like are there actual stats instead of rumors and a couple of entitled AFOLs cutting boxes? Do I honestly need to check the app to see how active things are? And take a good look. Two genres/factions are getting normal beatboxes (Monster Metal & Fantasy Folk). I see five of the six formerly released beatbox genres are getting stages, is there a Tropicon one that isn't leaked yet? It's not too farfetched to predict a third wave with Discowboy & Samurap beatboxes at the very least.
>>1087 As far as I know there's no stats or anything, but bear in mind that even Brickset published an article about Vidiyo possibly flopping. https://brickset.com/article/58772/has-vidiyo-flopped-already Though I think its not too hard to see why a ridiculously overpriced, badly marketed theme is flopping already. Amazon discounted them from day one and stores have been discounting them recently, and it doesn't help sales that rumours of box cutting are going round. The app suppsodely suffers like every other Lego app - barely works, heavy on space and memory, only works on the latest phones, and the AR gimmick just doesn't integrate nicely, which is yet another nail in Vidiyo's coffin. I'm not holding my breath for a wave 3.
>>1088 Counterpoint: The way they had wave 2 ready and the amount of content released in it, I think they split up their originally prepared product into three pre-made waves to extend it as much as possible. There's apparently going to be an in-game store outfit update this Saturday and people still seem to be making videos too, so the app's not as dead as everyone proclaims.
>>1089 So each wave is like a DLC of sorts? I guess we'll see this Saturday if the app is as dead as everyone says it is.
>>1090 >DLC Sort of, except it's more testing the waters and extending the product's life for as long as possible by not releasing one huge wave of sets at once. (Imagine being a kid and trying to collect it all, ouch.) If they can make it until after the COVID situation is over, it'll be a blessing for them.

We changed Willy Legoman 03/23/2021 (Tue) 07:51:23 No.1036 [Reply]
So, after we received a lot of critics we decided to steer to this version of Willy Wonka and we made this final. We won't change it anymore. Do you agree? https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f37ee26a-8944-44e1-a29c-573f51bfcbbb
>>1036 I don't get it, did they use Gene Wilder instead of Johnny Depp's designs? Honestly, JD's funny but he looked like a damn queerio. Gene's design is superb and it really sells you on the whole "crazed, eccentric manchild" look. I think it's the garish colors that really make you feel unsafe next to him.
I think changing to Wilder's version of Wonka was for the best; he's much more iconic. While I don't particularly like licensed themes Charlie and the Chocolate Factory certainly lends itself nicely to Lego. Good luck getting 10,000 supporters, you're almost there!

Your match against britfeel ended 0 - 0, though you did field the first fully modeled team in Cup history. I staged this image after the match. Since you were the "away" team for this one, you wouldn't have seen it in the stream

>>937 Here's the version you got in your last match. Someone had rightly pointed out that The Good Guy and Glows In The Dark! had their models imported incorrectly, so that was fixed in time. A full roster of minifigures, Bonkles, Wojtus, and THAT ONE FUCKING PIECE WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU PIECE OF SHIT.
>>947 Haha thanks anon.

How many have you played, if any? Generally speaking I'm quite sour with TT after the unfinished mess that was the Hobbit game. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't they have a day-one DLC for that one? What sad times we must be living in where even Lego is not safe from the ravages of the modern video game market.
Anyway, holy shit do I wish they would do my ideas for Lego games, which they have done a bit of in LotR and Clone Wars. I also want to see Legos torture and murder each other, and I DO NOT want them speaking anything comprehensible. I want to crucify Lego dissidents for the glory of my Lego empire. I want to massacre entire cultures that happened to be in my way. Kids would eat that shit up because kids like edge, and parents generally don't give a fuck anymore what their children play. How would an E/E10+ FPS fair, do you think? Lego Sims-clone?

>>581 >I'd like to believe that I've played all of them up to 2011 Impressive. What flash games are you missing? I have loads downloaded and would share them here if you want. >Lego Star Wars: The Video Game perfected the TT formula I replayed the complete saga not so long ago and I was shocked at how badly it had held up. It wasn't as fun or as good looking as I remembered, while other videogames of the time had aged nicely. It's very barebones, along with the other copied and pasted TT games like Indiana Jones and Batman. Indiana Jones 2 and Harry Potter pushed it further forward in that they added new features, but I haven't completed them yet. They are really enjoyable so far. LOTR is almost like a completely different formula and I don't know what to make of it. Some new features are nice, but others feel like they were added just to bloat the game a bit. Battles is surprisingly fun and addictive. I didn't enjoy the very similar Warcraft: Orcs & Humans but the more streamlined Battles allows for quick and fast-paced levels. I'll have to remember to come back to this and decompile the .nds file so I can get that sweet concept art unlockables out of it. http://the-eye.eu/public/rom/ is a good place to find older games. Just select which system you want and ctrl+f lego.
>>582 I'm missing the majority of non Bionicle flash games, like Exo-Force, Lego City and Creator. If you have any of the Mars Mission games, they would be greatly appreciated. >I replayed the complete saga not so long ago and I was shocked at how badly it had held up. Playing the complete saga was the problem here. It opens with some of the worst levels on offer and one of the worst hubs (in my opinion). Do yourself a favor and play through the video game, rather than the complete saga. It's far more entertaining.
Only played the first Bionicle flash game, an Alpha Team flash (I think), and the Star Wars prequel trilogy on the Gamecube. Granted, when it comes to the latter, I really don't like Star Wars as a series anymore; haven't in years. But I always thought that the force mechanic as a concept perfectly integrated with the deconstruction/reconstruction aspect, in a way that the premise for most later licensed Lego games never quite struck me as doing. While I know not every character could use it, I think the "mind over matter" part, that the character had a vision of exactly how they wanted it to look and didn't even have to touch the bricks to implement it, was the key factor. >>582 >My Favorite always has and always will be MNOG. It wasn't much of a "game" (well, any more than most point and click adventures, anyhow), but it did a great job not only helping to build up a world behind the actual sets of the time, but also letting the player feel involved in it. Heard the second flash was a complete mess, which strikes me as a shame.
listing only the full-on games and not all the flash on lego.com >lego star wars I and II pretty good, played them to death though, don't think I will ever do it again >lego harry potter 1-4 and 5-7 it's okay, don't remember much about it but it's alright >lego star wars clone wars not my cup of tea but I see why people like it >lego pirates of the caribbean played like two levels at my cousin's house, seemed fun >lego creator knights' kingdom bought it as a kid thinking it would be a fun lego castle game but it turned out to be just a lame ass program for setting up "scenes". I think I cried. >lego racers my absolute favourite(though I might be nostalgiafagging since it was one of my first games ever). Still play through it every couple of months(it takes like an afternoon). great soundtrack, great classic themes, great pace. only problems are 10IQ opponents and weird car handling

How does everyone feel about these sets? What's your favorite architecture set?
Open file (2.02 MB 1600x1600 ClipboardImage.png)
>>823 They're not my cup of tea as the Architecture line seems to be oriented towards the kind of people that put sets on display and have a bit more money to throw around. They look nice but I just can't justify the price.
>>823 I like the idea of them, but there aren't any that I particularly like.
most Architecture sets feel soulless. I prefer buy sets with more pieces and nice features or color that a simple house or wall
Open file (64.67 KB 900x280 farnsworth-house.jpg)
>>826 >>827 >>828 I's say the best one is the one I posted in the OP, the Farnsworth House. It's scale is good enough that it includes a lot of interior detail. It's just about exactly half scale for normal Lego builds to accept minifigs. I'v actually thought about making my own "full scale" version but I'm not certain how to go about starting that. The model is roughly accurate to the colors of the real Farnsworth House so I'd need a lot of white and beige bricks and some clear window bricks as well.
>>826 Same, I like the idea of these "scale model" sets and think they'd be fine if they coexisted with traditional play-oriented sets. The issue is nearly every fucking set is either an action figure or one of these "scale models" that you can maybe play with once and shove onto a shelf because it's not designed to be rebuilt, like that stupid fucking Mario theme. At least with Architecture you can still buy a pile of the white Architecture element set and do stuff on your own.
