What do you think of Red Star Games? They're a small group of BIONICLE fans who write content for tabletop games based off BIONICLE. Their most expansive and most complete project at the moment is Doronai Nui, a D20-based role playing game inspired by the Metru Nui saga. They are also working on material for Barranai Nui, a BIONICLE-themed skirmish game based off the 8th edition of Warhammer 40,000, and Heroes of the Stars, a rules-light RPG based off the franchise's second generation. What do you think about these people and their projects, /lego/? Do you or would you play any of their games?
Never heard of it. Thanks for the tip. Where can I buy this game?
>>750 Just look at the link in the subject line.(redstargames.org) The game is free, they're not able to put money by it since they're not officially affiliated with LEGO.
>>749 Seems like an interesting project and an example of what direction the Bionicle community should take. Majority of the Bionicle fanbase seems obsessed with the lore and the finer elements of it, but they're kidding themselves if they think they aren't beating a dead horse at this point. Creative projects like this that take the IP elsewhere (even if not officially) and keeps the community healthy as well as creating a whole new avenue of exploration for artists, builders, or even just story tellers. As for the game itself, I'm not too big on the idea of using actual figures in-game; miniatures would be better adapted for this but I understand why they haven't implemented this. Finding someone to play this with must be a pain because they have to not only be into Bionicle and /tg/ stuff, but also have a decent selection of existing Lego pieces and I can't see there being that many people out there.

>>752 >Miniatures would be better adapted for this Are the minifigures from the playsets close enough to miniatures? It would be easy enough to build scenery and obstacles from LEGO bricks, and the figures themselves are mostly compatible with regular LEGO. This makes them very customizable, more so than most "real" gaming miniatures. I'm honestly surprised there aren't more custom BIONICLE minifigures on the market, especially given the popularity of 3D printing.
>>806 Damn I forgot about these guys. If only Lego didn't half ass the minifig scale sets and we may have gotten more characters. The 2001 Toa would've been cool to have.

Canon Contest Legoman 09/05/2020 (Sat) 15:32:13 No.651 [Reply]
Are you going to vote for uncle-anon, or do you have different strategy?
1 post omitted.
You know I don't bother with bonkle fans that much but I happened to see what happened in the last canon contest (the one for Helryx). It's little wonder AFOLs ignore the Bionicle fanbase, and that's because the majority of them are whiny faggots that obsess over a dead toyline. Nothing you hand them will ever be good enough for them, they'll constantly bitch about how it isn't good enough or how Lego should do more to recognise them. Bionicle sales were dipping by 2005 and the franchise was slowly dying. Sure, G2 was mishandled, but that still doesn't explain for the piss poor sales it had or the blinding truth that the early years were simply a craze kids went through before moving onto the next one. Of course Bionicle fans interpret this as proof that everything Lego was doing during this time was flawless and Lego should just copy what they done and redo Bionicle in the current year. In many ways they're like that classic castle/space fan you can find lurking old forums or LUGs that insist that Lego should just re-release multicoloured generic spacemen or blue knights versus red knights ad infinitum. Sorry for the rant OP That is a very nice looking Bionicle MOC though, I feel many bonk MOCs try to mask the technic pieces (in the way some system builders cover everything with tiles to avoid exposed studs) but I personally prefer the more technic approach - it looks suitably mechanical unlike CCBS.
>>653 >Bionicle sales were dipping by 2005 Lego themselves said in their backstage documentary that it was one of the best selling themes, even in 2008.
>>654 I'm not denying that, I was saying that the sales were dipping compared to previous figures. Although I have no real evidence to provide, I suspect this was because the Bionicle craze was over and a chunk of children grew up or moved onto something else. Core fans still stuck around though, which is why bonks still sold well.
>>653 >the early years were simply a craze kids went through before moving onto the next one Well, that has always been the case with LEGO themes. Space went through the same thing, but what really set Bionicle apart was the story they've built for the theme. It wasn't just robot action figures that you could build, they were robot action figures who fought in an intercontinental, interplanetary war to save their god from eternal slumber, who in turn just happened to be a giant walking, talking exploration vessel built by mysterious beings who might just be humans like you and me. It had a gigantic sense of scale that went beyond just the sets, but I won't deny that after ten long years it kind of fizzled out. Toys are being replaced by tablets, and even Star Wars merch, LEGO or not, is collecting dust on shelves nowadays.
>>656 Even Lego seems to have noticed this trend and are desperate to keep kids interested in physical toys with their recent AR gimmicks. If you ask me trying to mix digital games and physical toys is never going to work, how are you supposed to compete against video games and TV rolled into one convenient package?

Starting with this. Who the fuck came up with this? It almost fucked Exo Force over.
1 post omitted.
I had a Knight's Kingdom figure and these joints would always worm their way apart when you played with them. I can understand why they went with a clicky joint (stable poses) but it was still fucking annoying.>>154
And they were so stiff when new, which made it even worse - when I got my first (and only) Bionicle, my mind was blown away by the ball joints that allowed a greater choice of movement. I wish they'd gone for the more Bionicle route for the big figures.

Super jumpers.
>>592 Has anyone ever got one of these working?
>>612 The minifigures jumped with the super jumpers. But it was hard to remove from the legs; some people said that the jumper broke their minifig.

Picked up 70671 Lloyd's Journey recently and overall its a great set. I'm seeing in several places that the set is being reduced right now, which only makes it better.

The set itself is a nice little fort for the ice samurai and its quite compact but good looking. Would be nicer to have more space for the ice guy to stand on, but that can always be changed.

The ice samurai is by far my favourite minifigure in the set and pretty fucking cool. The printing on his face is perfectly fine, but his torso printing needs more work - the white printing on top of the dark red isn't thick enough so it looks slightly pink.

The dual molded armour and helmet has to be the best part of this set and it looks really effectiv. The armour looks the same from both sides and the alternate face on the samurai means you can buy multiples of this guy and vary them slightly -definitely makes the set more appealing for army building,

Not much to say on the wolf other than she's good. Standard 1 POA on the neck and the red printing on the tail is slightly blurred, but otherwise everything's good.

Lloyd's torso and leg printing is pretty bad - the yellow area (which is meant to be skin) looks like lime green and the gold printing is already faded in places. His accessories are cool though and at least his face printing is fine.

Apologies for the less than stellar photography, I quickly took photos using natural light so they aren't the best they could've been

Picked up a bag of extra dots and I'd recommend them. Comes with a decent colour selection (though a bag with less pastel/bright colours like dark blue, dark red, and dark green would be much better) an the pieces are useful for tiling. As for the emojis, I picked up this pack because of the skull (turns out I got 2 which is a bonus) emoji, and was hoping that the diamond and leopard print pieces were in there. I was hoping I wouldn't get the shit emoji, but lo and behold there was 1 in the bag. At least the bags have clear windows so it isn't a blind bag.
>>315 >At least the bags have clear windows so it isn't a blind bag. Good to know. I thought that might be the case but I couldn't tell from the render image.
>>318 Now if only the CMFs would follow suit... But seriously its nice to just have to look inside for which emojis are included rather than buy multiple bags for the ones you're after. I also forgot to mention that the bag advertised that there were 109 pieces, but I got 115. Not that I'm complaining, but it doesn't add up. Weird.

You can get a rubber mold from the Lego store and I made chocolate Lego figures with them. Bretty gud, and they're roughly minifig scale too.
