This thread is for discussing sets, MOCs, Lore, and everything related to Bionicle (new and old), Hero Factory, Chima, and everything else that uses CCBS. As usual, try to keep it civil.
So, what are your new years plans?
Previous thread: >>4613256
>what are your new years plans
Gonna go visit a friend, watch him build miniature tank, be jealous of his Lego AT-AT and Star Destroyer, and play Senran Kagura: Burst while other friend watches. He doesn't own 3DS, so he leeches onto me.
No Bonkle-plans, but I just may go check stores on 1st or 2nd, depending if the stores are open.
>what are your new years plans?
Chill with friends, marathon Star Wars, go out and buy some of the sets on New Years, (already bought Kopaka, Protector of Ice, and LOSS, so i'll probably just get another protector while I wait for all the other toa to arrive in the mail.) and we'll probably play some games and film stuff.
>So, what are your new years plans?
I was gonna go out with friends but they bailed on me so I'll be inside playing with my bonkles or watching SG-1
>new years plans
blow shit up and marathon the bonkle movies
A Weekend in 2015. That could be as soon as the third of January.
Anyone made the image of the Bonkle riding a Liger with a nerf gun? This is all I got from /b/
>mfw I thought as a kid that Lewa was the leader of Kopaka and Gali because Wairuha wore his mask
>mfw I found out that Copac the Humorless was actually second-in-command
Gali always felt like a better second-in-command to me, but Greg had a raging boner for Kopaka so he made him the deputy instead.
>tfw your pic was the OP pic of the last thread
Too bad I was too sick to use a computer, or I would have flipped out.
In other news, I picked up two more Bonkles the other day. Halfway there. Perk TV is doing wonders for funding my addiction.
not even bonkle related. just going out for a dinner with friends and family
Also adapted Pohatu is such a manlet
What do you think that happened with the MoC placeholder?
It comes from this, in case you have never seen it. Oh god I remember getting excited the first time I saw it.
You know what? I'm tired of all the vanilla stuff we keep getting. Let's do something hardcore. We're already drawing pics of toy robots in lewd poses, so why not go all the way?
I want to see a futanari Gali fucking Tahu in the ass. He's tied up and on his back with his legs spread, while Gali is slowly teasing his asshole with her giant dick.Gali needs to have a sexy, dominant look on her face, while Tahu is trying to hold back his anger/tears. You can have her making a shitty pun as she does so, if you feel the scene needs some humor, but Tahu needs to have a gag over his mouth. Also, if you can, make Tahu's asshole and Gali's futa cock drip with cum, as if Gali hasn't stopped fucking him for hours and is still hungry for more. Also, Kopaka is watching them from afar with his telescopic lens and jerking off to it.
Are you a bad enough dude to draw dickgirl Gali?
I just started a blog a few hours ago. Not much there, but I'll be adding stuff when I have time in the next few days. I'll also try and do requests for /biog/ bros (like the gali mistika I'm drawing right now)
I now want to see this. Please, someone make this happen.
>Are you a bad enough dude to draw dickgirl Gali?
I think you've done enough posting for one day, friend.
Well this thread got weird fast...
Do you guys think they will ever release red skull spiders? They are pictured on a lot of comics, but arent featured in any sets. If they do, what special ability do you think it would have (in the way blue has lots of endurance, green has X-ray vision, and silver is fast)
I just remembered a theory someone had about what if the Toa's mask powers fused with the skull spiders in later years a la the Hordika. That made me realize something.
>Kopaka fuses w/green spider
>Pohatu fuses w/silver spider
>Onua fuses w/blue spider (Endurance and strength are rather similar)
This could mean a return to the original mask powers of 2001, with Kopaka getting X-Ray vision, Pohatu going fast, etc. It could also serve as a way of reintroducing mask packs, since the Toa's masks would now be different powers, as opposed to simply elemental conduits like they are now.
Is anyone else's Gali mata really broken? Mines arm is fucked (same happened to one of my Vahki) and here mask snapped in half which I glued together hoping it would look normal (it doesn't)
Was the set just generally weak or was those arm pieces weak?
None of the above, the set is fine, mine is in perfect condition despite being played with a lot, and originally being in the possession of my little sister. Its likely you were a bit too rough with it.
That being said, I have 3 masks with bent spots that dont obviously change the shape or were fixed back to shape, but leave a noticable lighter seam (I will probably look into purchasing new ones), one was a green miru, one was a blue miru, and one was a green hau, all bent on their lower left corner. Wonder what the common cause is.
Heat resistance or psychic powers.
I love the skull spiders. It irks me whenever I watch a review, and when the reviewer gets to the one included in the set, they say practically nothing. Even in the majority of the BZP reviews, nobody pointed out the mix of Krana and Infected Kanohi they harken from. They just bitch about the color of the spider clashing with the figure when it's put on or how the legs get in the way.
Like, the colors clash for a goddamn reason. Look at the color choice of the Krana. They're supposed to look foreign on the victim they subdue.
I just hope we get red ones with the summer villains. The 1:1 ratio between spiders and good guys doesn't seem "horde" enough to me.
i tried. Not sure just how "bio" to make her before it just becomes mecha musume.
Hey, if you ignore protectors in combat scenarios, you can get a solid 2:1 ratio, I feel like, because of how they were handled, skull spiders are the best execution of the 'swarm' type villain idea that Bionicle has done for several years, and combining them with the Krana / Infected Kanohi / Kraata concept was just great. The fact that different colors have their own unique powers is a nice touch and having to look them up on the main site to know about such powers reminds me a lot of old Bionicle for some reason.
Well, we are getting five sets in the summer, and out of the winter ones, we're getting four of each color. My guess is that the standard villains will have a spider each, and the only set without one will be the big Mask Maker vs. Skull Grinder set.
so far the 'names' we do have:
The protectors dont seem to have names at the moment, but we know so little about them that there might be a reason for this. Other than that, there arent really any characters that NEED to have names, the skull _____ is perfectly normal for bionicle, with creatures post 2001 having names along the lines of "Blade Burrower", "Bog Snake", or "Dermis Turtle". Its possible that Ekimu is referred too as 'Mask Maker' in his set because they want kids to know what his purpose is, and a set titled "Ekimu Maker of Masks versus Skull Grinder" is a bit of a mouthful.
Nice. You should draw some stronk and sexy pohatu
He always try to come up with possibilities of things people may not like but at least you can discern what is his opinion from it. He and I share the same hatred of blue pins though, seriously, black pins were god tier.
I love RolloutReviews, he speaks with enthusiasm, his mata and nuva reviews are insightful as well.
I feel like the style of review's LJ does always make the sets sound bad, with him more or less ending his reviews with a list of everything wrong with the set. It also gets a bit tiresome hearing him complain about blue pins every - single - time.
^This. He says it so often, and the fact he ends his videos with cons makes for very negative-sounding videos.
He might as well throw a clip of him shoving a tub full of blue pins off of his filming area into his intro.
has anyone made an edit of this with the protector of stone
well at least the serials won't be dark and edgy with alternate timelines and botar being crumpled to death with beings from other timelines that shouldnt be in our universe and toa tuyets that were secretly swapped because reasons
So far so good I would say, if it had been GregF, the protectors would have had to rip off each others limbs and eat them in order to summon the Toa, who's landing would destroy villiages, the Lord of Skull spiders would have a name with many X's and K's and it would claw everything in half while laughing, also the protectors summoning the toa would have actually all been part of Makuta's Keikaku and Vezon would save the day.
We're not gonna last long that much now that new blood is coming. At least the kids will never win our contests since old technic and bionicle pieces will get you more points (if DV or RoaMcToa are absent from the competition of course)
Mostly cause he suffered from George Lucas syndrome, as in, he did well when others helped him make up the story but when he took full control, it went to shit with all the edginess, the pointless deaths, the twists and basically having no sense of direction to his writing, messing up the story with all the canonizations just to please a bunch of overeager BZPers.
And a lot of nostalgic Geewunners also associate him with the later years that they hate, even though Greg has been writing the comics since the beginning.
feels good to have a team of mary-sue clusterfucks.
thanks, /biog/, for giving me the drive to build
I was kinda dumb as a kid so when I read the books, I think it was one of the metru ones, it said something along the lines of "Vakama lost his footing" and all I could imagine was his actual foot fell off
Yeah, it was mostly in the serials. Not that the books were completely free of it, especially the later ones (like Fero stabbing a young Bone Hunter to death and the kicking his body off his dinohorse), but at least those had an actual story to tell, whereas the serials felt more like edgy fan fiction.
If you mean extremely loose as in Hero Factory-tier "you make up how this cliffhanger is resolved and the plot resets itself for the next wave", then...
Well, jeez, both of those options are bad.
>implying it isn't the reason for the edit
>implying it is
that feel when you not going to post uncensored picture
Hypothetically, if an anon in this thread happened to know how to use 3D modelling software, and happened to want to make a lewd 3D model of one of the bonkle girls, which should this anon do? Purely hypothetical of course. (Also this thread needs to switch gears or we may reach a point of no return)
> "I don’t know my exact location. None of my instruments are functioning but this view is amazing. The sunrise looks surreal from my spot on the beach. I have just awakened from a long sleep. I don’t know how long I have been unconscious. In front of me lies the infinite ocean with an unreal silhouette on the horizon. It looks like a figment of my imagination. Maybe it is just a strange cloud formation. Things look weathered and overgrown around me. It seems I know the place, the beach where it all started but at the same time it feels foreign and changed, filled with memories and ghosts of the past. To the right of me is a rough strange looking shed build out of all kind of scrap materials and littered around me lie boxes and tubes with unknown content. I have forgotten how I ended up here but there were many battles, victories and defeats. Now it must be time. I have to move on from this place. I don’t want to become another spirit of the past. I will clean up and pack what I can carry. The future awaits and I want to travel light. It is time to say goodbye to Turaga beach"
Based Faber, if only he was in charge of the storyline in later years instead of Greg. Even after all these years, he still understands what made Bionicle's first few years on Mata Nui so special.
New gali to keep it current and spammable to destroy all the new childrens childhoods. also keeps it relevant when adults of the future go through that teen stage of looking for all kinds of depraved porn and think of all the characters they grew up with.
>All this talk about Bionicle porn
>Still no dickgirl Gali
Ok, I don't wanna crash this thread, so just one more partial sketch for tonight.
You spoke just in time, anon.
>Also this thread needs to switch gears or we may reach a point of no return
Here's my modded Protector of Fire, who I've named Balboa. He uses the weapons as sickass fire effects for his fists.
Oh shit man, that looks damn good. I hadn't thought about it but using the element parts as effect really works. I might end up trying to use them as weird speed lines for my Lewa and Pohatu.
Yeah, he's pretty badass when you think of him as the guy who punches the shit out of everything, and then proceed to give him better thighs and arms to let him do it. Also,
you're going to need to remove your trip because you don't fucking need one
>pose all my spiders
Yeah, I'm totally doing that.
Oh, wait I have none.
>tfw no, I'm even closer to the south pole
>Tfw you were the original /biog/ Black Six until someone stole your trip
>Tfw people like the imposter more than you
Guys name the order of colours you got your sets in.
I would always go:
I don't know why, I must have seen a group of six sets starting from the rahkshi in that order.
Right after I asked the question, inspiration struck.
He's much scarier like this!
They'd be out of their natural habitat, they'd be banned or something like that.
I was warned for noticing the fact that the AFOL survey had only male or female (I was kidding, of course)
>Not banning people questioning him
>MFW it's not the real B6
What was your reaction when you watched it for the first time ?
This is great lets watch it every day for a year.
I can't remember but goddamn I loved it so much, I watched it a million times.
The other week I actually watched it all on youtube since lol vhs.
Metru Nui is on par as well.
>tfw you don't have 2001 style matoran feet so you always have to use Bohrok feet for matoran builds

>didn't realize I've had bionicles before the Inika
I personally preferred pic related
Look at dat mouth. They better reserve that mouth for pic related, but awesomely modified
>someone gets off to onewa gagging
fucking hell alright
But that was later on. Until like 2007, my brothers always got the white, green, and blue sets, and black once or twice. Now I just get them all, and I got all the Toa and LoSS at once. Feels good to be spending my money on Bionicle again. Still gotta grab the protectors, but I might buy those 2 at a time.
I've seen some fucked up shit but this is pretty high on that list
there is one thing that i hate more than giant fucking skeletons
and that is fetishists that scrape the bottom of the barrel for content
Am I the only one who likes the third film the most?
>05 was the year I truly started to get into Bionicle
>built this fucker
>swapped the Keelerak head for the golden battering ram one
>His name was Pirakarekks
>he was Sidorak's faithful second in command
>he hunted down the Hordika while Sidorak and Roodaka held down the fort in preparation for war
Man, I miss being a kid...
It was... entertaining, but far too cheesy, even for Bionicle movie standards. I mean, the first two were pretty bad, but I think 2005 was my least favorite year... until 2009, anyway.
>why are the mouths moving
>these masks are fucking ugly
>wow they fucked up the rahkshi's looks too
>A FUCKING KOHLI MATCH FOR THE FATE OF THE ISLAND? REALLY YOU'RE GONNA PLAY A SHIT GAME YOU'RE SHIT AT AGAINST THE ULTIMATE EVIL AND HE EVEN AGREED?

I wanna see one where Gali takes Kopaka in the ass or pussy while she fucks Tahu silly, all while Onua, Pohatu, and Lewa jerk off all over them.

Only if you don't have nasally voices because I swear to god
'Cept it would sort of be the opposite of this.
There's a big difference though. A chat would be for only those who want it and not 'competition'. Less work too.
Anyway I'd join one, but am an ausfag at the beach until next year. So someone else can set it up.
>Yfw BZPower makes a big stink in a few weeks over some "Obscene artwork of Gali" being spread around
It was their fault for bringing up that Gali was Trans in the first place
Vastus was my nigga, despite hordika legs. I hadn't been into bonkle since the inika so I was way out of the loop. One fateful day at Walmart in 2009 I happened across vastus and thought his poison scythe staff thing was badass as hell and bought him. Got me back into Bionicle and toys in general. I owe a lot to ol vastus.
Oh hey /biog/! What's that? No I'm not doing anything...
I liked the 'Kolhii Match for the fate of the island' thing. Makuta was meant to be like the devil, and it seems a very satan-ish move to win the soul of Mata Nui by besting them at their own trivial games rather than an epic battle.
Happy Nui Year! It's now 2015 here in pohatu land, which means the year of bonkle has officially begun.
No anon your dick does need this.
>My photoshop skills a shit, someone must be able to do this better.
Do downloadable versions exist of the promo cgi models? would be cool to have them
HAPPY NEW YEAR YOU BIONICLE LOVING FUCKS, TO ANOTHER YEAR OF EDGY DEATHS IN SERIALS AND BOIDOH CUMMING ON FIKOU SETS
Well its kinda obscure, an anon made a thread saying he wanted "ahoge faces" and all he got was literally ahoge instead of ahegao.
I see. Not into it myself. I respect (..most) fetishes, but I can understand the mockery for this one. Some faces are pretty damn ridiculous.
So what happened to this statue? Do thy keep these kinds of things up even if the line it's representing is over, or do they take these down and replace them with newer ones?
Nah, they don't release that kind of stuff. Some of the fan-made models are pretty close, though.
And it's totally not the same, but some anons do have the models from the games, at least.
Yes, we already defined this. That's why the Mistake-a version sucks.
6 hours left in holland guys.
Happy newyear to all in other countries.
If a SS jumps on anyone's face in the story, it had better be Lewa. What with his unfortunate tendency to get stuff stuck to his face in the early years of Old!BIONICLE (infected mask in '01, krana in '02, etc)
And then Onua digs out of the ground and saves him (her). Yeah, we've danced this Charleston a few times before.
>saves him (her)
Jesus FUCKING Christ! Do they need to bring their stupid fucking fan canon garbage into EVERY topic?
Like, being progressive and accepting about everyone's lifestyle is great and all, but just stop bringing it up every goddamn minute. It's like a girl obsessed with yaoi that has to bring up her favorite shipping whenever someone wants to just discuss the ACTUAL story.
>Better yet, why not a Mata Nui/Click relationship? :P
Think of it! Lewa becomes buddies with one of the skull spiders, and every once in a while, when he needs it, the spider jumps on his face and lends him its power, the way Click became a shield for Mata Nui. I would love to see another pet in BIONICLE! :)
Jesus what HAVE you done?
I just realized that each Toa/Region is based on a different tribal culture
Pohatu: Aboriginal (Australia)
Tahu: Ryukyuan (Japan)
Kopaka: Inuit (Alaska)
Gali: Maori (Polynesia)
Lewa: South American (Possibly Peru, because of the temples)
Doubt it. They'll probably have a huge battle with LoSS, take him down, destroy the mask, and the Skull Spiders will disperse.
I'm making a Queen of the Skull Spiders out of a Queen Beast set I've recently purchased, since LoSS seems more of a self-appointed leader than the horde's true big boss.
>Implying anyone but Tahu will be the hero
If we were talking Inika or Glatorians maybe, but Mata will always be ruled by Tahu and Kopaka.
Lewa on the other hand will be ruled by Cthulu.
This got my attention more than the rest of the thread. Sorry.

>being gay isn't enough anymore
>I need to be something else that makes more oppressed.
I don't have any CCBS.
I'm already convinced of it's usefulness, but there's a thing I don't understand. It gets a lot of praise from being more sturdy and less breakable than the old pieces, but I don't really see why it would be so.
I've marked on the pic the place most of my broken pieces (not many) broke. Is this no longer an issue on CCBS or does it fix some other problems with the old pieces that I'm unaware of?
I also remember kopakas sword being damaged on the connection to the hand, but that was just me being a child and chewing on it.
New plastics being used and very slight changes to shape and design engineering make for a less easily fractured part, and also one that maintains a sturdier connection. The plastic is no longer quite as weak as the plastic that was used for the parts you have had broke, so it does not break as easily there anymore.
You'd be right, I didn't really build much.
Found this picture of the broken sockets in case someone else wanted to see it (which I doubt).
don't worry about initial dislikes
having them in-hand is a blast, they feel like toys lego really pulled its shit together for. Even fire protector the elbowless is pretty solid for a figure, and the new gear friction designs are great. Honestly I am more happy with these as stand-alone toys than previous sets.
Because they thought that "edgy" designs would've sold more, apparently that wasn't the case since they returned to normal masks with the Mahri. I assume the Piraka smiles weren't that popular either, the Barraki were much more alien looking and had subtle mouths.
I think the Iden and the Calix were cool, but the others were a bit too much. I really miss light-up weapons from that era though.
it happened to me too
I don't remember how it has been many years
#trigger warning broken plastic
My Matoro Mahri's Cordak Blaster broke in the same way (but it was an improvement so I was happy about it) but really, thats not something that happens. The biggest breakage point on these sets in in the sockets which crack due to their mechanism being expanding around a ball, CCBS sockets are better designed and shouldnt break in such a way, making MOCing less risky IMO.
