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.
