Hi, I found an interesting picture of something that might be the new BIONICLE sets. I'm quite skeptical about them, but if you look closely, you may notice a couple of Hero Factory parts there and the artwork at the top of the stand is drawn in the style similar to that from Invasion From Below sets.

Well, I know it's not fair to judge the sets from such small and blurred pictures, but I can't help thinking they look lackluster. The guy with the board looks kind of cool and well armored and the six-legged spider-creature has an interesting design but the rest is just ugly.

Yeah, it was leaked all over BZP and The Three Virtues Podcast a few days ago. Plus we all knew that it was coming. There is no surprise there.

I am just pretty exited about it, and I can't wait!

O_O You make it sound like its a sure thing, I wont get my hopes up just yet, but it looks promising if it is real. I was thinking they were done with it, because of all the previous legal issues and etc, using hero factory as a rebranding...

EDIT:News link

And of course now we have to get to our policies:

It is our policy to remove content like this when The LEGO® Company gives us specific instructions on what is or is not okay. Please note, they could request something unauthentic to be removed to prevent people from mistaking as an official product and getting people's hopes up, so it's potential removal should not be taken as authentication.

IF they ask us to remove this stuff I will have to, but for now feel free to talk about this possible come back.

It seems that the picture has been deleted... Thankfully, I had saved it on my Brickshelf gallery before it disappeared biggrin.gif

As I said before, I'm not entirely convinced by this and honestly, it doesn't matter to me if it's true or not. I'm not going to buy any of these sets anyway, as I already moved on from collecting LEGO sets.

Too bad for my wallet, Im probably going to be buying them all if they do turn out to be the real thing. I hope if that's the case they made some significant changes. Those hands though, I wonder if that's a CG from a movie or if they can actually bend? Ive always wanted pose-able fingers and even have an idea in my head for the part that would allow for it.

Im actually trying to dig up some more parts to give one of my bigger mocs fingers like the XL mata nui, right now he's got static fingers posed out of those elbows with the axel hole in the middle.

I have a few reasons to believe this is legitimate. If so, I'm ecstatic about Bionicle's return.

Silence from the Lego Group says more than anything. All that they did was discretely take away the photo. No comments. But it is still possible that it's fake, though I think TLG would acknowledge that if it was.

@Matoro’s last comment: Correction, You knew it was coming. You were interned to LEGO, and TLG plans their new themes a year to two years in advance. You would have hit that time scale on the dot. It’s Okay, though. We still think you’re awesome.

@Immy: My birthday was on July 3rd, and I got 100 Dollars. I was going to spend it on the Galaxy Squad Galactic Titan, but now I think I’ll wait until after ComicCon

@BZPower, if your listening: Never forget, you’ll never kill us. We are alive, no matter how you try to destroy us. BIONICLE might return, and if it does, We do. We are MOD, the greatest BIONICLE site ever.

I don't think it's fair to say BZPower is out to kill us. If anything they might view us as competition, and like any good business they are adapting to keep themselves strong in the market. That includes, as far as I last checked, specificly not allowing our site and other sites with forums to be linked to. Im told they would allow discussion of this site on bzpower if we removed our forums, but even as little as they are used right now without much new Bionicle content to get more traffic, it's enough for me to keep them open.

And thank you for your support Baxor, while I think your being a tad overzealous regarding our neighbors, I'm grateful to know the site is still appreciated.

You're welcome, I love this forum(Not to mention the people on it) and wish I could be on it more than I am. I will be at some point, but not for a year or two. But about BZP, my violent reaction to them was due to a horrible experience I've had with them. For mentioning without a link, Mask of Destiny, B6(Black six, the forum top admin and 'big brother' type person who never smiles) threatened to delete my account from the system and all my posts if I mentioned it again.

Also, they even have a word block/filter which turns Mask of Destiny into 'Stupid Forum filled with idiots'. I'm not joking. If they had been more cordial to me about it, I might be prone to stay on their site, but I will never go there, now.

However, it is worth noting that being the top admin of a site means that you can't be friends with the forums members. You have to be the law. That's the price of a big forum. Also, though I wish it were a bit bigger, the small community feeling is something that I love about Mask of Destiny. That's something BZP will never have.

I don't intend to leave MOD anytime soon. One because, I love BIONICLE. Two, I love contributing my epics to MOD. It will take a lot to get me to leave here.

Because it's awesome.

BZPower hates every forum which has many people.Dont think its fatal.But soon a ''war'' can come out between us and BZP because we are good comunity.Not like BZP.

I think i will never leave MOD.This is one of my favourite forums.

Theres not going to be any "war" here. Its been in their rules for years that you cant mention our site as well as link to it. They don't let you mention any site with forums period, its how they work, and they have every right to choose to work that way. Your lucky they had the courtesy to give you a warning.

If our name filters to "A stupid forum filled with idiots" there, all I can say is I hope they will have the courtesy to change it to something a little more respectful like "restricted forum, do not discuss".

Id rather not get into discussing BZPower, lets just get back to discussing the topic at hand and enjoy ourselves instead of focusing on bad memories.

Okay Immy, I got this one. Folks, you better keep that money in your wallet for a little while longer, cause' if BIONICLE comes back you're gonna need the money!

There was my salesman montage. Now, seriously though. we'll all need the money. I also hope that they go back to comic books. I've got a collection, and I hope to continue it. Tsk, tsk, Monasti should have waited to sell all his BIONICLEs. I doubt I'll sell mine anyway.

Now, a question. What would you like to see come out of BIONICLE if it returns? I want to see the parts become stronger. Perhaps like the Hero Factory parts, but with a BIONICLE twist. The 08' and 09' BIONICLEs were way too prone to popping joints. Got a slogan coming up, so here goes.................

Use POOP to keep away the pop.

POOP by the way is a LEGO slang acronym for Pieces(that could or should be made) Of Other Pieces.

(Thanks and sorry if I sounded pushy/aggressive earlier, saw this just before work and didn't have much time to proof read, but was worried things could get out of hand and wanted to post something)

Im thinking I like the bone system hero factory is using, just not the armor that goes over it. If they had something that was more detailed and slimlined, that would be great, and a similar bone system that got rid of the middle ball joints for complex building. I'd like more parts compatible with the old technic plugs, and torsos with three or four parts instead of unibody. Id love to see things like the chi orb armor on them (as elemental cores), but designed to launch them (or DO they launch?)

And of course new masks or helmets in a few colors, with some collectability aspect, but not necessarily multi color box packs, just to name things off the top of my head. (OOH, ooh! Transparent bone parts that match the elemental power of the toa! Press the elemental core in and a button under the armor flashes, illuminating the trans parts!)

I get you totally Immy. It's fine, I took no offense, and the topic was going in the wrong direction(My fault, I apologize, sincerely).

Now, as far as the neon joints, absolutely. Right now in The MoC Workshop, I've got a topic which is a request for two characters (both of whom require neon parts) to try to be built. That would help me so much. Also, perhaps heads which can universally fit all masks, sort of like the 2006-8 heads which could also take the pre-2004 masks.

I'd seen the images a while ago and while I'm not prepared to get onboard with the hype (I'm still not completely convinced it's the real deal). A translated leaked products list that turned up in a skype chat I participate in seems to confirm this but I wasn't given a source for the information, only its translation so I won't link it here as it's not viable evidence in its current state.

I'm interested to see what becomes of it but with HF still on the field I'm concerned that the lines will be similar - and thus unappealing and financially not viable for lego. I suppose this is a chance to demonstrate their differences. We'll have to see if/when it happens.

I'd expect so, at the very least for several years until it gets a sizeable footing (making the assumption that it does) and has the breathing room to be riskier.
