    Future Constraction Lines

    CCBS will be unviable if it doesn't sell well, because really business is more about getting income and not selling quality. If the sets doesn't sell, no more CCBS for you. well yeah I don't really want to blame CCBS for not getting any profit but that's how it is atm. Kids won't be interested in something they have absolutely no idea about and it shows. Whilst SW CCBS has a lot of stuff to compete with, BIONICLE had its fair share of competition as well back in its early days of success. I'm just saying that if LEGO really wants CCBS to stick, better market it aggressively to make kids interested - BIONICLE and HF did that and those themes were successful.

    I'm gonna be honest here, SW CCBS has a bigger influence on constraction than we actually think. Think about it, if it's the only constraction theme still in line for lego and it's a license theme, then there's a problem. the problem here is how the theme is performing in general, in regards to how the sets are going on clearance in my area 24/7 and I've heard similar stories as well. As far as I'm concerned, this will be a turning point because pretty much this is the only consistent constraction theme for LEGO at this point and I'm pretty sure if this continues and they eventually cancel it, why should they reuse a building system that isn't considered viable anymore, license or not. however I really don't think there's hope for constraction anymore, it isn't selling and why even bother - and if they want to make an action figure line at some point, I'll love to see a new system and an original theme to go with it - with actual marketing and creativity.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gldOq016jE4 expect this set to go on clearance soon and really, I think this could be the turning point for constraction as a whole if lego doesn't stop making these sets so expensive. Yeah I know there's a licensing fee but 30 bucks is way too much.

    But Aanchir, LEGO targetting adults instead of their main audience especially for reboots or whatever it could is a stupid idea, especially when it's about new themes coming. LEGO could make adult themed contests later on but as a must from the start? I heavily disagree. As ShadowWolfHount puts it, you'll just end a theme very quickly. G2 showed this, soon to be SW CCBS is going to suffer the same faith as well.

    That's all I'm asking for. Actual input from LEGO and solid design. Little Jimmy won't join a contest of his favorite theme on an adult fansite because he's too young and doesn't know anything about how the website works - no he just wants to build something he's allowed to be apart of. Seriously that marketing strategy really needs to stop, it didn't help G2 and SW CCBS and neither will it help the next constraction line. Don't ask to raise awareness on a fansite no-no, do it yourself.

    tbh if a new constraction line is coming out next year or heck even in this decade, I really hope that it isn't some half arsed reboot or a licensed sub-theme. I would love to see something with a future setting simliar to Silzers and Roboriders. problem is, ccbs as a system currently needs a restucture or at least an overhaul to make it even more interesting and complex, but at a middle-ground where both kids and afol moccists can spend their time with and successfully in my opinion. also I hope that lego learns from their mistakes from both nexo knights and G2 marketing wise and execution because if this theme needs to succeed at least moderately, there should be a push from the company. also don't ask for awareness on any adult fansites whatsoever and making contests only accessable for them only k thx

    I mean, that sounds great as a concept, but I do not think that a license theme would be necessary. Because in its entirety, if you want to get more bigger and complex dinosaurs builds with actual original textures and functions, that would be great for an original ccbs line in my opinion. Galidor execution marketing-wise was okay, at least better than G2 that is, but I think it didn't go through because of BIONICLE at the time being on its highest and the personal bias towards it and G1. Actually the sets were pretty great and the articulation was through the roof, but the problem was that it didn't really click with kids and afols denied its existence like G1. I do think that a galidor-ish ccbs theme concept-wise anyway because human heads are literally nightmare fuel, would be great with the setting and getting unique characters and designs.

    and I understand why, but geez, the thing that bugs me out the most is why all of this gets attention 24/7 - yall remember the votobert/whatever it was leak and people went crazy over it, even though there was little to no truth over its existence. I'm going to say this however, we all fell for the bait, we all are dumb. next time man I just hope this community learns from this and sees how stupid these "leaks"/claims can be at times.

    yes it does, ESPECIALLY in this case with ccbs dying out and no way of improving the current standards. while the same thing kinda happened with galidor and all of the garbage getting released in the 97-04 era, this might be a new and exciting return of confused and utter that was lego back in 97-04 yo lemme say this, sw ccbs is why the entire building system is dying and getting more cancer than bionicle g2. both themes fall in the same category of reusing the same torso build, lame designs, builds being less stable etc. I don't get why people like you seem to cyclejerk stuff like this, when both of them are fundamentally flawed and deserved their rushed and painful endings. one more than the other. bionicle g2 suffered because of these flaws and the lack of no interaction from lego, even though nearly of the sets seemed to just be plain and bland. sw ccbs is just too expensive for the price ratio, whlist being more rubbish than that one theme which is known to be the worst of the worst.

    personally, at this point, instead of seeing ccbs 24/7, I want to see something new for once. I don't care if it's just kk2''s building system or galidor, just give me something new and I'll be satisfied because I'm tired of all of this business crap thrown at me with lame and stupid ideas like STAR WARS CCBS and incorporating similar stuff. because honestly, what the frick happened to "only the best is good enough"? like I mean, megablocks and manchildren being all fuzzy over a reboot sucking aside, why not improve whilst trying to do something new for once LEGO? like since childhood I've wanted a theme and building that mixes exo-force and technic bionicle, along with ccbs but no, my idea is just as irrelevant as yours because it won't sell according to the big L E G O. at this point mate, I'm just waiting for another bionicle-alike savior or something to put an end to this madness...

    alright first off, this is obviously fake and if you think it's true, then you must be the saddest man on earth. BIONICLE and ccbs as a whole are dead and won't be used for anything in the near future considering that two sw ccbs were canned. so I'm asking this question, why the megabluck are people this dumb? like right now people in a lot of discord servers I'm in (r/bionicle and the bionicle 4chan group comes to mind) are making fun of you guys for being total idiots AND telling them about it. listen, it's a dead joke and move on with your life please. BIONICLE is never coming back. leave it at that and stop stiring more shit up for christ's sake...
