So, BIONICLE sets are ending?

Gah, I'm mad as heck.

Your thoughts?

Actually, there's been a lot of misinformation going around.

From what I've heard, BIONICLE is a double-edged sword: it's LEGO's second- or third-most-popular line of all, but it also costs them a lot to make. They're kind of postponing the next sets indefinitely, to see if anything can replace its popularity. If not, they might bring it back. But they're going to continue the story, no matter what.

That's just what I've pieced together. I'm not guaranteeing it's true.

But if the sets are really ending this year, then AAAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH.

That's my thoughts.

I heard they're replacing them with Ben 10.

Oh yes, I can confirm that. The Ben 10 sets look awful, have no weapons or defenses, and have LESS PARTS FOR MORE MONEY THAN BIONICLE.

I could have told LEGO that this was a bad idea...

Forget telling them.

Knee them somewhere, and they'll know how us BIONICLE fans feel.

I'm not happy with it at all, even though I don't buy many of the sets.
I understand that it costs them money, but I don't see how Ben 10 could live up to the legendary awesomeness that is BIONICLE.

Oy, you can say that again.

I mean....

Some of the pieces are useful...

Mainly that Blue and Black thing, but I mean...

The prices.... And the theme....

Blegh.

And just look at those hands. I mean, they can't even hold anything! The brown one is especially nasty. I believe on that one, the head can't turn, and it's fourteen pieces for fifteen dollars or something like that.

But if you think Ben 10 is awful, remember that BIONICLE is being replaced by "Hero Factory", whatever that means. A double dose of awful.

Quite right. I suspect that Ben 10 won't last very long, though, which is a relief. Who knows about Horror Factory, though.

Actually, I do know of pet names, such as used for Mo the Truck, etc.

Anyway, they probably reused some parts from the aforementioned Inika.

Where are you guys finding these pictures? I want to see the miserable failures. :P
So that's what they're called? Hero Factory?
I don't think Ben 10 will last very long either.
And Jali? That's funny.

Well, there are good pictures on BZP now. (Strangely, the very day I choose to check BZP after months or so is the day they put the pictures up.) Yes, they're called Hero Factory, and they look just like BIONICLE. Glare

They're abysmally terribly horribly impossibly really too mega-ultra-stupid.

Somehow, the choice of human names for them made their stupidity even more real for me.

At least they have semi-okay pieces, including the first (I think) standard armor for Av-Matoran limbs.

Basically, Hero Factory is a rip-off of both BIONICLE and the Wishworks Factory (from what I've seen), with bizarre names and bizarrer torsos.

Sad and disgusting. And for Wishworks... haven't you people ever read any of Jason Lethcoe's books? Or, for that matter, those of Obert Skye, Brandon Mull, Matthew Skelton, Helen Stringer, etc...

Exactly what does your post mean?

And how does it relate to the end of BIONICLE?

Back onto the subject of the Hero Factory sets - at least they can be incorporated into preexisting BIONICLE collections.

Aren't we all.

I mean, at least they have REAL BIONICLE pieces, though. Unlike Ben 10, which are pseudo-BIONICLE and close to pseudo-LEGO.

Remember, if the worst comes to worst, you can tear their pictures off and save their canisters, and never assemble them.

Exactly! Failed LEGO lines fetch a lot of money once they're discontinued. Probably because not many people even have them. :P

I think there are lots of casual BIONICLE fans that don't even know yet. You know what I mean, the people who just walk into Walmart and say, "That set looks cool, I'll buy it,"?
