I don't remember posting about it, so it's interesting to see that someone besides me was keeping track of it unless I did post about it and just forgot
. I didn't really expect it to go through no matter what success it had, but I think that it's good that it got the attention it did. I think that at the end of the day you're probably right, and that had it been approved Lego would just leave Bionicle with that set. It would have been a nice sendoff, but it wouldn't have been what Bionicle deserves. It's easy to say that it obviously wasn't going to be approved in retrospect, but I'm still mad at myself for having any hope that it would work and that the greedy faggots that run Lego would do something worthwhile for once. I guess all I can say is that it's an insult, Lego Ideas has its focus to the retarded manchildren that buy legos as "collectors items". Nothing that doesn't have a huge name behind it gets a chance on Lego Ideas, besides a fucking typewriter, which is the only one out of the three approved sets that I'm not insulted by its existence. Seriously, who wants a fucking Seinfeld Lego set? Is there really a market for Home Alone Lego? Neither of these fanbases are the type that would cross over with Lego fans. What a fucking joke. They're choosing shit based on what will look good to the assholes in retail stores. If a manager of a Target or whatever picks up a set with "Bionicle" on the box, he'll go "Isn't that the thing that didn't sell back in 2016?" but if he sees something with "Seinfeld" on the box his retarded blobby brain will get tickled with a little dopamine rush of recognition, and he'll spend the rest of the day ending every sentence with "not that there's anything wrong with that" and other obnoxious bits.
Bionicle doesn't deserve this sort of cold shoulder that Lego gives it, but the fans absolutely do. They're the autistic faggots that made sure that Bionicle died with g2. No one bought the fucking sets, even though despite being ccbs they were the best ccbs sets that Lego has put out, and they probably won't do any more ccbs or any sort of constraction ever again. No wonder no greedy businessman is going to do anything with Bionicle, they might lose 1% of the profits focusing on that instead of their much more lucrative "Ninja pirates in space" line, or "Drill monster-fighters from mars" or any of their retarded licensed sets. Anything safer than Bionicle. Bionicle takes effort, it takes 3d designers, writers, and concept artists. All the other shit just takes one bored guy willing to recreate a scene from Avengers that no one remembers and a few recolors, at the most they need someone to design a new hair piece for whatever shitty tv show trash they pick up. A solid 99% of Lego sets, especially these days, only are worth anything for the pieces. When they're so set for cash why would they ever take a risk on the autists that spend all their time arguing about what pieces a moc should use, or about how much they love or hate the TTV autists. What a fucking shitshow on both ends. Feels like I'm the only one with a fucking brain in his skull sometimes, and here I am rambling about something I never really expected to perform well anyways so maybe I'm just as retarded. It was cucked at the finish line for no reason, except for all the reasons that everyone knew would cuck it but ignored. It was cucked by Home Alone no less, and fucking Seinfeld. And no one should be surprised, everyone knows their part in why Bionicle died and why it's probably never coming back beyond some fan projects that the scummy degenerate genderbending egotistical high horse fucks running TTV give their blessing to. What a bunch of spiteful no good faggots. If there's any downside to the fact that canonization contests are back, it's that those idiots are running the show. At least that can't change the quality of what gets submitted.
Fuck me why do I expect anything more from anyone. At least the fan games are good, there's hopefully no way that those can get fucked up. Those are the one thing that give me hope. Both Quest for Mata-Nui and Masks of Power look amazing.
Sorry for sperging out so hard, my autism flared up here. I'll post a few pictures of what I'm currently working on to make up for it. The silver/gray one is the only one that I'd consider finished, I still plan on improving the arms and legs of the other ones since they're skinny and basic right now. Been trying to focus on poseability and stability, I noticed that a lot of my stuff puts a lot of weight on a few pieces, making them bend or break.
