    The part where Onua sends LoSS down mercilessly to his brutal death had me laughing so hard.
  2. I know it's just the angle, but the lines on the top of the orange side of his head make it seem like he has exaggerated female eyelashes. :P

    Oh, I'm sure there'll be Easter Eggs. They're about the easiest thing a writer can do. That's why I'm really more worried about the tone of the story, theme, and characters than anything else. :P

    I sort of see what you mean, but that's a lot of references to cram into one year. Is it a good idea to get all of those little Easter Eggs out in one year, though? There'd be none left for other years. Right now, it seems like they're taking care of 2001-2003. Besides, cramming each and every reference into just one year would not only require a lot of media detracting from the main story, but... honestly, it would cheapen a lot of it. Part of what I loved about BIONICLE was the slow but ultimately mind-blowing progression from one city being in danger (I got into the story in 2004 as well), to realizing that there are bigger forces than the Toa and Teridax at play, to having to save the universe... The effect of the Visorak webbing only had value in the original story because they devoted the whole tone and theme to it, and progressed up to it by setting the city up as something that was once majestic but got corrupted, just like the Toa. If you just make a village covered in the webbing, it loses all that. It becomes an Easter Egg.

    Like the argument and angry disagreement (and subtle insult) you're perpetrating in this very sentence? XD

    Catching up on some of the older comments... KoN, out of curiosity, how would you have expected LEGO to include fans who got into the story all at different times? Like, how would you do it specifically? I mean, for those who just came in 2006, you'd have a way different Toa team than those who started out in 2001 or 2004, and way different plots. For 2008, some of the bit draws were the dark Makuta species (which would now have to utilize the gangster/tyrannical appeal of the Piraka) and the swamps/stalactites, which would probably be crowded next to the tropical island and futuristic (and also post-apocalyptic) metropolis. And then there's.... 2009. I don't mean to make this confrontational, or even rhetorical. It's just that, as others have pointed out, each year was pretty diverse, so I'm just curious what you had in mind.

    I'm not saying I agree with the comic or anything. I liked BIONICLE's terminology. I just have an xkcd-linking addiction, and in this case, thought it was relevant and perhaps would even make a point. (Also, read the hover-over text, since you bring up Tolkien)

    DC Superheroes 2015 Rumors & Discussions

    Oh, hey, I just noticed this. There's a newly-printed, white minifigure shield at the nose of the Javelin. I'm probably not getting that set, but I want to see what uses others may give it.

    Yeah, at that point, you may as well name your character Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

    A BIONICLE game... and it'll be on the PC? Finally! Hope that the use of the masks and elements makes more sense this time around and offers more freedom than in BIONICLE Heroes (which, though still fun, wasn't really good at representing the real characters and/or their abilities). I'll ignore the story bits for now, though I must say I like where it seems to be going so long as the villain lives up to the potential he now has...

    Gah... is it just me, or does Kopaka have nipples? Still looks awesome, but I mean, LEGO, come on... All in all, though, these look pretty good. I love the new legpieces for the Spiders, Gali's double-feature weapon is awesome... All-in-all, the best Constraction sets I've seen in quite a while.

    2015 LEGO Pirates Rumors and Discussion

    Not sure if anyone's noticed this yet, but one nice thing I see about the skull island set upon closer observation is that pushing down the palmtree would seem to lift up the skull and reveal the treasure. Not super amazing, but better than the last skull island where the play feature was basically "Rotate the door to open just like a real door!"
