As we know, Bionicle is ending. The Stars are the final sets we're getting, apparently.
Many people are thinking that these aren't good enough as finale sets, and the general consensus is that people want this guy in set form. Here's some concept art:
For people who aren't fans of Bionicle, this guy is basically the definitive character - most of the storyline takes place within this robot's body.
He'd also be pretty hard to represent purely through Bionicle pieces, and it's most likely that, if made as a big set, plenty of System elements would be encorporated as well. That's what, I think, might interest AFOLs. Think of it as a UCS set of a Bionicle character. Importantly, though, is that for this set to be made, the fans need to ask for it.
Now, it's likely that most of BZP will be on board, but that won't be enough. What we Bionicle fans need is for fans of every other theme to back us up, so to speak. The Bionicle storyline is to continue until at least 2011, giving enough time for the set to be designed. As a possible S@H exclusive, I think the idea of this set coming into existence isn't too far-fetched.
I'm just interested to hear what you guys are thinking - not only those Bionicle regulars, but fans of any other Lego themes. I really think this set could appeal to everybody, done right.
My blog here will be kept updated with any progress made on this project, and, if you're a BZP member, there's a poll about this here.
Please give your help.
