    Mixel/Technic fusion. Some folks think the comic book mechs that Lego's doing right now are them poking around with the viability of Mixel centric sets, and as Aanchir pointed out a while ago, Bionicle can definitely be done in System, I just personally hope it doesn't get the ninjago treatment with minifigs, mechs, and an overreliance on shiny vehicles

    Yup, That is a strong staple of the theme I'd love that, but most likely if we got a set, it would probably by something like a UCS GSR, or a bust of Tahu, the former I'd absolutely buy, but the latter? ehhhhh

    I think its less about swc doing better and just that Lego hoped it would be a better investment than Bionicle, but I think it may have failed so hard with both communities that swc may be responsible for possibly killing Constraction as a whole Yeah, droids/characters that were wearing helmets sold far better than characters with bare faces.

    G2 wasn't advertised at all last time though, but a lot of fandom backlash from the G1 community was over the simplification of the story, which took away from what could have probably made G2 on par with G1 for many folks, I'm not sure how well Chima sold, but star wars Constraction was the wrong building system for the wrong crowd, a star wars collector usually has no interest in Constraction, and Constraction fans have never been into human figures (ex: Galidor). old G1 Bionicle isn't even a really expensive theme to bring back, the Toa/Matoran could just be made with a mixel/technic fusion system with unique masks, and all the large creatures were made mainly out of technic components that were never retired, so they're not even a problem to redo a d improve upon. Just make a theme about robot people, give it an actual budget and some real marketing and it'll sell

    I mean, they kind of had last year to do that with the Ideas diorama that they didn't accept. Of course, being that it was system with minifigs I myself wouldn't have bought it, but I honestly doubt lego is looking for figure focused way to approach Bionicle again, and more just hoping that the community would migrate to ninjago or something It is Bionicle's 20th anniversary this year, which would be the perfect time for them to do something, but the closest possible date that I see them doing anything would be 2022, with either Bionicle getting the 90th anniversary by itself, or possibly splitting the winning spot with the other top 3 in smaller sets, any longer than that and my pseudo dark age will probably be fully realized

    Mmm, not with the (lack of a) marketing campaign lego gave it, but hey, well have to wait about, say, 5 years at the soonest? and see

    That maybe so, but lego did include it on the poll, and it made it to the very top of the first round, so Bionicle fans have a right to to speculate about, and discuss it as we always have, if that isn't the case, then lego shouldn't have wasted our collective time by even putting it on the poll in the first place. We both know lego wouldn't do that for the Bionicle community. I'd love to be wrong, but I honestly believe the best chance that the community has to ever get new stuff is if we back custom part designers like Kingsidorak and RSG, and pool our resources into manufacturing for ourselves.

    Mmm, I'm one of those folks who prefers the 01 lads to the 02 lads, I didn't really care as a kid though, but as I grew I realized that Bionicle was just a lot nicer when we had fewer metallic colours. That being said, I don't dislike the Nuva compared to the Mata nearly as much as I dislike the Uniters compared to the Masters, their designs are...trying too hard? they're so over the top and loud, if they just toned down the metallics and transparent bits, they'd improve alot, although I really appreciate the trans purple that we got on Onua

    Naw, they were ugly as sin tbh. Still bought them all though and I still cant find a good use for any of their masks yet I'm not even trolling, I'm using my normal vocabulary, you're the guy here who's trying to find some hidden meaning behind the use of the word "Dude"

    Cool dude, I'll continue to casually do so in any and every discussion I have as usual And as someone who's been in the community through out both of G1 and G2's runs, I'm pretty confident in those guesses Thus why I gave a small discrepancy of around 5 percent, although I didn't factor in Hero Factory at all into this, I should have, I loved that theme and there's (obviously) a huge overlap of people who were into it and into Bionicle. But without that, There aren't many people who's first constraction theme was G2, since it was barely marketed anywhere.

    If you honestly think Mixels was for Bionicle fans then castle fans have ninjago, space fans have the lego movie as well as star wars, and both of them had nexo knights apparently

    I vote more out of fandom solidarity than any hope of getting anything, I know better than to expect much from lego Dude, the only people that knew G2 even happened were G1 fans, and most of them just bought it because it had "Bionicle" written on it. I'm absolutely certain that out of that group of folks, somewhere below 5% would have preferred it to G1
