According to Tandbricks Brickclicker is about to reveal some of the biggest 2025 leaks that will make LAN explode.

What could it be? Its not just a modular, but more stuff, new theme(s).

Brickclicker also used the vault for the teaser...the vault usually means a classic theme comeback...could it be true? The legend returns? Bionicle...G3???

First time on this board, this seems the right thread to ask

my nephew (7) has taken a lot of interest in my old bionicle toys, especially the ones that turn into balls. Is there a modern, cheap equivalent of bionicles, lego or not, that I can buy for him?
>>
>>11040387
pretty much any set that was sold in a plastic canister still goes for very cheap secondhand. the ones you posted are the bohrok and you can get each one for under 15 USD. you'll have to pay more for one that comes with the can but you may want to consider it since it's a unique part of the Bionicle experience. just make sure it comes with the rubber band and krana (little rubber mask) at least.
>>
>>11040392
yeah, I found a bohrok like mine for 9 euro secondhand, without can though.

Also I'm sad, my two ball guys lost their masks, I remember treasuring them. Not my nephew's fault though, they were lost loooong before
>>
>>11040396
those are pretty cheap too, you could see if you can find a lot with some in it. your nephew might get a kick out of being able to swap out different masks

>>
>>11040184
This is absolute fag shit by the way. "Teasing" a leak which is already a teaser in itself is retarded. These types of leakers are fueled completely by clout and they get off on having access to information nobody else does. If that weren't the case then they'd just drop the leaks without the stupid games. Compare that to leaks posted on here where it's usually just one image and the poster fucks off. I can't even imagine what compels someone to decide to be what basically amounts to an unpaid shill.

And people saying it's Bionicle is pure copium anyway.
>>
>>11040550
>every Bionicle leak before came anonymously and from no names who dropped pics and disappeared
We'd only be so lucky if that happened again. The leaker personas in any fandom, but especially Lego, are ridiculous
>>
why for the most part, have the prices of bionicle sets not gone through the roof like most other lego sets. With a few exceptions, most standard bionicle canister sets are being resold at almost what they would currently be sold at retail. Is it just the sheer number of copies sold or is there just not that much of a market for them? Or is it that everyone who wants them most likely still has their original collection?
>>
>>11041008
>Is it just the sheer number of copies sold
Mostly this. They were relatively cheap and easy to find, and they made great gifts since parents didn't have to worry about who the characters are, just get your kid their favorite color. Hence why the majority of the large non canister sets usually go for several times the original price.

>>11041015

Instead they have other ones because materials degrade with time eventually. Unless of course you would rather play with wooden toys.

I wouldn't get my hopes up. Lego's retired CCBS, nearly fully phased out ball-joints, and has relegated technic to cars again.

IF we get a Bionicle G3, I fully expect it to be system, and with those accursed fixed-knee pieces that their modern mech sets use.

Seems like you're a bit out of the loop, they've been trying to bring back constraction (characters, creatures and mechs) the last few years. Though it's integrated into system themes, they still release a few specialized pieces meant to be used in buildable characters every year (we got a few new shoulder pads, some armor pieces, blades, those new finger pieces and those human faces picrel also has).
>nearly fully phased out ball-joints
They didn't though.
>>
>>11041883
Huh. that's neat. Glad to have been proven wrong.
>>
>>11041883
Yea but the thing is Lego marks complexity and posability of sets hand in hand with the price tag today (unless it's 4+ rip-off garbage)

and the cheapest of those buildable figs are still around 30$.
One thing also is that system is just fundamentally so much denser system that the builds are way more heavy than your average toa, leading to shitty balance to pose which is why they need to introduce new type of joints for any of it to work/or be expensive/have locked knees.

In all likelihood whatever comes next, if ever it'll be cheap (around 15$ or over) and have no knees.

You and I both know G2 was doomed no matter what. It had no audience. LEGO marketed it toward ipad babies (watered down story) and were simultaneously banking on old autists buying. Majority of old fans will never accept a reboot (regardless of how good it is) cause it's not GeeWun, and the kids don't give a shit about Bionicle as a brand. Doomed from the start.

G3 would most likely be something like this
>>
>>11042975
Not too bad, I like the details but the shaping could be improved a lot to make it less blocky. For example they could've made the waist thinner and the hips and the shoulders wider. And there could have been more variation in the shaping of the limbs too, like for example it would look better if the upper arms were thinner and the forearms bulkier. Also I guess it goes without saying that if they go with this direction (if Bionicle ever comes back) they should release a few specialized pieces with them like masks, armor pieces etc.
>>
Im highly doubt binicle will return. i dont care who confirms it. anything more than 3 sets is probably also selling you a bridge. bionicle has no young fanbase.
>>
>>11043003
They could...yknow...build one?
>>
>>11042975
I hope not, G3 NEEDS to be cheap, they shouldn't be sold at a premium like they got heaps of licensing fees to pay.
Maybe Titan sets at most, because knowing lego, a set like that would easily go for 45.

>>11042974
I think this would be the best choice, technic with system, Bionicle should be all about functions and play. it's what made early G1 so good.
I would gladly sacrifice pose-ability for functions.

I feel like the big buidable licensed figs were a bad idea. I see them still rotting on local store shelves because one, they look ugly, and two, they're super expensive for what you get. Why buy a Lego Wolverine fig that looks awkward when you could get a Marvel Legends fig for the same price? If Lego brings back Bionicle I feel like they would(should) utelize the newer Ninjago mech pieces and aim for something close to pic related. The GWP was cool, but still a bit too fiddly for children to play with. A build like the OG Toa with locked knees and elbows with the new limb pieces, proper head molds, and a little enemy in the set to fight, they could sell the Toa for $15 tops if not cheaper.
>>
>>11043030
>utilize the newer Ninjago mech pieces
>locked knees and elbows with the new limb pieces
No, just no.
Lego should probably just give the license to another company at this point, given their inability to make any type of good figure.
>>
>>11043038
I think it'd be fine. The first three years had locked limbs and everyone loved it. Not just the Toa, but the Turaga and Matoran were super simple in articulation, and nobody bitched about it. If it means a lower piece count and price, give me prebent limbs. Also, personally, I like the Ninjago pieces because the first thing I thought of was the Mata leg piece. Just my personal preference.
>>
>>11043043
Not every part of the first 3 years were great (Bohrok kal). People won't be happy with losing pretty major joints, especially after G2 proved that you can have both articulation and functionality.
>>
>>11043051
I disagree, but okay. People also bitched about G2 bringing back gears because it mage the shoulders sit back too far, as well as the HFesque look because they used CCBS, and I personally saw no issue with that myself, but hey. Different strokes for different folks.

>>11043055

This looks very unappealing. I’m a casual bionicle fan with a few sets (toa mata, metru, inika) and I would prefer the more “organic” look of those sets. I know that’s not going to happen as those pieces have long since been retired, but giving them a more blocky angled look makes them look like mechs used in standard lego sets like in picrel.

There are ways to cover the limbs up pretty effectively, altho it leaves the underside still kinda bare

When's this guy revealing his supposed huge leaks?
>>
>>11043043
The limited articulation from 01-03 was charming because we didn't have more articulation in anything prior to that, but if they updated the mech limbs to have some sort of ratchet joints in them I'd be a 100 percent for this, until then I'd say they should just stick with Mixel joints
>>
>>11043131
I wonder how pricey it'd be to make roughly the same piece but with a ratchet in there. Surely that along with mixel or ball joint feet would solve the stability issue that some kids apparently have.

>>11043139
probably wont be too different, how much are those Ninjago mechs? 20 bucks? funnel that minifig budget into better limb parts

Yea seeing builds like that make me feel like they missed the point entirely. What made those original Toa work was cause they were buildable action figures in the simplest way possible. You connect the limbs to sockets, then to the body and you got to change their masks. What they offered compared to other action figures was that a kid could easily customize them. They had so few parts and an action feature that was fun. Anything built with system trying to look like a bionicle would only be bionicle in name and just be a generic system robot.

Late 2003 is not as good, partly because they moved away from comics+animations as the main storytelling medium because of the movie, but it still works fine as a conclusion for the original trilogy.

As a kid I liked Bionicle the most because of the mechanical sculpting. Pistons, metal grating and faux gears were so cool. Bionicle was basically its own toyline separate from Lego entirely. If it was rebooted with Bricks I'd never buy it. It doesn't matter if you slap the names of the old characters on them because what matters is the toys themselves, maybe 1 in 15 kids knew the lore of Bionicle back in the day.
>>
>>11044184
Nothing's stopping them from covering them up with such molds. Studs also work for texture if they are of the variety that has a hole trough them.

Yeah. Presentation, atmosphere and an implied background story had a bigger role in making the toys popular than the actual story itself. And of course the toys themselves had to be good.
The main factors that made G2 flop were the price tags (obviously) and the lack of new parts that would have made them stand out more, they barely looked any different than Hero Factory CCBS sets which were on the shelves for around 4 years at the time. So it's understandable they'd be indifferent to people who've already had multiple Hero Factory sets by then. And also, young kids who were still interested in constraction at the time knew and loved Hero Factory but didn't care about Bionicle. I remember a lot of parents asking what happened to Hero Factory at the time because their kids loved it. But other than those kids, action figures in general lost a lot of popularity by then, kids would rather play as the heroes in some immersive video game than move around physical toys and pretend to be those characters. And yeah, I think older fans are just a relatively small group of autistic nerds, and even most of them hated G2.
>>
>>11044396
As a kid I only vaguely knew the lore based on whatever illustrations and small comic strips came with the sets themselves. Like you could gather that the Rahi were the bad guys cause Tahu was fighting one on the box. Then the Bohrok came with a bunch of images where you can infer the swarm woke up and they had to stop them. Without words you could tell what was happening and sort of fill in the gaps with your imagination.

What if g3 is a kids horror story like poppy playtime, with 5 of the original toas being lobotimized by toa tuyet roaming some fortress like mindless droids while you as a rebel matoran try to find out the truth in this complex. Haunted by 5 lobotimized toa while secretly being helped by a hiding pohatu.

The way they can launch 3 is with a avatar style series, where the matoran are practicly enslaved in metro nui where a few eventually escape into the wilderness to build strength and return to overthrow tuyet

On a Super Star Destroyer sure, but any system robot will tell you that isn't the case. Printed panel lines on smooth bricks also looks terrible.

Disagree about them missing the point. The GWP was clearly meant to be a nostalgia-grab for people who grew up with it rather than directly appeal to a new generation of kids. I don't think LEgo would have locked it behind a $100 paywall or put an age rating of 18+ on the box otherwise.

Sick collection, I'm mostly into stuff up to around the Visoraks personally but it's crazy to see basically all of Bionicle laid out on shelves.

Bonkle is the big one I still actively buy, but my wife and I have a complete collection of the DC Bombshells figurines.

>My goal/endgame is honestly like, 1/5 of this collection. Absolutely nuts.
I was growing up when Bionicle first came out so I was able to get a lot of the individual sets as they came out. I couldn't imagine trying to start from scratch now with how expensive shit has gotten.
>>
Does biog discord server still exist?
>>
>>11046353
I'm not starting from scratch, I have a handful of childhood sets. The mainliners aren't that expensive - Toa, Bohrok, etc they're a bit pricey but not crazy. The Rahi and Titans are up there for sure but I really don't want most of them past like, 2004 or so.

Probably won't collect most of the minis/turaga/matoran/McTorans, they just don't interest me much.

I'm thinking like, Toa, Nuva, Bohrok, Kal, Rahkshi, Metru, Vahki, Viaorak.
Maybe Barraki, they're pretty neat but I really don't have much interest in Piraka or Phantoka/Mistika or any of that later crap.
Then like, titan sets past Roodaka I have very middling interest in. I have some like Makuta, Bohrok queens, Takanuva, Boxor, and Keetongu already. I think #1 on my list right now is probably the Exo Toa. I wanted one very badly since they were new.

This reminds me that my younger sister is a huge Marvel fan (at least she was back in the first half and middle of 2010s), and I used to call Captain America "Captain of America". It always annoyed her, she kept telling me it's Captain America and not Captain OF America.

Couldn't figure out how else to display it in a way where it wouldn't be obstructed by something else. It's bad enough that Takua & Pewku get overshadowed by Kalmah. The stand is probably overkill but I don't feel like revisiting it.
>>
>>11051240
Brickbuilt Slizers would probably work better than Bionicle, given the general shapes of their bodies.
>>
>>11051535
The biggest obstacle is for the designers to convince for each toa to have unique mask, Slizer faces could be just printed already existing slopes lol.
>>
>>11051585
That's actually true, ya, I didn't think about that aspect. Unique masks and weapons, as well as hands and possibly feet and other parts would probably be the deterrent to Bionicle coming back in any meaningful capacity. With G2, while the builds were pretty decent, especially with the Uniters, the weapons all felt so same-y with all the Toa and Beasts using those same 'elemental swords' which made them feel very boring. I personally liked the GWP enough that I built the original 7 Toa in a similar style, but without unique masks they're just not quite Bionicle. The printed masks are fine for what they are, but not as a dedicated theme.
>>
>>11051602
It's less of a issue if they can use same parts for multiple sets. Probably would be absolutely necessary for the toa masks to be used on "matoran" as well.
>>
>>11051607
I'd be ok if they instead opted for the 'villager' mask, like they did with the Protectors, rather than reuse of the Toa masks. I was going to say they should opt for mask packs since that'd be an easy way to reuse the pieces, but doesn't Lego consider a mold in a different color as a unique element? If not, making things like a mystery polybag with a villager in random colors, along with mystery masks and tools in various colors would be a great way to make the most of these parts. Using the same masks for a year or two would also be fine with me, with eventually different masks or upgrades for them or different Toa teams.

Waay too much speculation.
>>
>>11051585
>>11051602
If we ever see "SCCBS" Bionicle, not having unique masks would be dumb. And I think introducing more unique weapons and armor pieces are something Lego would be less hesitant to do, as they can be reused in themes outside of Bionicle and they're already doing that with Ninjago mechs and system-based action figures.
>as well as hands
I don't think specialized hand pieces are necessary, they introduced those new finger pieces last year (iirc), it would make more sense to use them in Bionicle too.

>it would make more sense to use them in Bionicle too.
I was thinking if they're sized like the GWP. I can't picture them thinking the buildable superhero figures would be ideal for a Toa team. Titan, yes, but for a group of 6 (assuming they stick with that), it is absolutely not viable for them for the main heroes to be priced like that. Meanwhile at GWP size and assuming they didn't come with the base or Matoran like GWP Tahu did, they could be priced around that 9.99 price point, if not even lower.

Regarding the hand piece, I think a good hand piece would basically be this piece but looking a bit more like a hand. You could put in the mixel-to-axle piece in, then peg that in as a wrist in whatever mixel connection piece. That could also reach the "too much articulation" issue they've been running into, but if they put these in the 8+ range like original Bionicle, maybe they can ignore those complaints.

As someone who owns the gwp, those legs fucking suck actually. You basically can't pose with them because of the lack of ankles. Terrible for display and play.
>>
>>11051771
Well that upper arm piece doesn't exist, right? But what you're getting at there can work, but with the existing pieces the connection in the elbows and knees will actually get more range of motion. Aside from the gears that's more or less what I did to my GWP Tahu. It does also leave a lot of room for armor and what not, and with some brackets you can get shoulder armor going. It gets a bit busy around the joints so you end up losing a bit of the original 90° range, but they still move well.

>>11051787
You can add a couple 1x2 mixel joints in between the leg and foot and you have functional ankles. Or what some others have done with the hinge joint, but then you lose forward and back.

>>11051752

I'd stick with the regular mixel joints for the upper arms just for the extra range of motion, and the thing parts could be an extra stud longer, but yeah man, this is great

Buildable mechs manage to sell these days, removing the minifigure and making them robots is the closest Lego would get to a Bionicle or Bionicle esque line in this current climate.

I'd be okay with brick built figures, but not this basic, bland, blocky, low-effort, nostalgia-bait slop the GWP set was. Just look around in other Lego themes, there are still interesting looking mechs, robots and buildable characters, and they even have some specialized pieces instead of just flat tiles and rounded slopes.

I post this every couple years because I'm praying someone out there knows what I'm talking about

I have always been an avid Bionicle fan, and frankly speaking, I was an autistic ass fucking kid. Summer 2009, me and my buddy in 2nd or 3rd grade went to Toys R US with my mom to both get Vastus, because we absolutely loved specifically green bionicles.

When we got home and opened our sets, I noticed immediately that my Vastus mask was different. Mine had snake heads at the tips of the helmet instead of the intended thorns design. Me, being retarded and wanting him to be "right", swapped our masks when no one was looking, fixing my Vastus and leaving my friend with the fucked up one.

It's been 15 years now, I've not seen my friend since like 4th grade. I know damn well he has long since lost that mask, but I am desperately trying to find someone in the Bionicle community who had this variation or knows what it could have been. I've been told before that it could've been an unfinished mold, but I remember the snake heads so distinctly.
>>
>>11052965
His shoulder armor had actual snake heads on them so it's possible you were thinking of that and misremembered. Or maybe kid you noticed the snakes on the armor and somehow thought your friend's helmet had that feature without looking at it closely.

Far as I'm aware there was just one, from an individual who used a Bionicle adjacent quote and 2025, and no one else said anything about it, though I think one other leaker reposted it. That was what, in 2023 still? Only way they could know for sure that early on is if they heard it from a Lego employee or something. Until we get anything concrete it's just hearsay. Like you're saying, some are hopeful, some don't care, some think it's a mistake and nonsense.

Is it wrong of me to not want to post my recent builds (just some GWP Toa, and a 'Makuta' based on the GWP Takanuva prototype) because I don't want anyone else building it? It's a weird selfish quirk of mine. Not like the builds are all that complex, but I've not seen anyone else build them quite like how I did them.
>>
>>11051771
Really like how this is looking, looks sturdy enough to sustain a good bunch of other system pieces for a lot of customization in the armor.
I'd be pretty happy with something like this for a system based G3, and I think it leaves enough open for Technic to be added to it for more functions as well.
That's my biggest hope for G3, I want a lot of functions to make a return, not just the usual "pull this and see it spin" but the great and solid playability that the G1 rahi had before Bionicle moved more into the "figure" part of action figure.
>>
>>11054185
I'm pretty amateurish with blender so doing something that isn't just cutting and connecting existing pieces to new is not gonna be easy but I'll take it as practice. But unlike most doing custom parts, I think I have pretty good grasp on Lego's design language as long time hybrid mocer, just I'm not sure I can execute it that well due to lack of modeling skill.

I buy it, just like I'm sure everything coming out this year has been in the work for years, for the most part.

I don't blame any of those people for not blindly believing rumors, but even for those who want to believe it's best taken with a grain of salt at this time since there's nothing concrete out there.

p much, these themes take a long time of planning, but sadly it seems that all that planning ends up going nowhere thanks to Lego's management.

HF had a great premise that got abandoned within the first year, the SW CCBS line was ruined by Lego and Disney's meddling, G2 suffered the same fate as HF, a great premise and planning that didn't even get out of the door, instead just parading visual concepts done by Faber's company.

Dreamzzz on the other hand seems to be doing well translating the concept to product. Maybe TLG won't make the same mistake with G3.
Could be because TLG is swimming in money thanks to their mainstream non-lego fan pandering with their adult sets and all other licensed franchises raking in that cash, so a G3 is less of a risk by comparison, so Lego won't be as inclined to water it down to sell to kids.

Trying to build a Rahi Nui that can actually use all the action features, phase 1: just bash together the components and make the bare minimum of changes so it's stable.
I can already tell the tail section is going to need a full rebuild, this pistol grip design really doesn't work without the rest of the Nui-Jaga attached. Ideally I'd even like it to be able to move a bit so it can strike to the sides, because it sure isn't going to get long enough to actually reach over the head. Any other recommendations?

I don't think they do exclusives at cons anymore, right? Like no more exclusive attendance minifigs. Also they're not going back to complex technic, that time is passed, as that would require too many new elements, which is something they've locked down. If it does come back it'll be brick based, almost certainly. If you don't like it that's just how it goes and how the company has evolved since we last saw CCBS.

I did consider the Kuma-Nui torso since that was used in this build that pops up when you search around, but honestly I don't really want to go that way because a) it's evidently been done before and b) it deviates from the core concept of the '01 Rahi mashup a bit. Only a bit because you're still using the same sets at the end of the day, but it is a totally different body shape and that would bother me.

Speaking of I do remember keeping a couple sealed Inika Kongu sets that were on sale at Target for like $2, wonder what those would fetch to put towards buying sets I don't have.
>>
>>11056043
I don't sell fucking anything ever. That way the value can be less important and you can enjoy it for what it is.

Keep your pieces anon.

I really think that if Bionicle was really happening, we would have had some form of leak, not only of toys but of whichever other medium G3 would be expanding onto.
Some sort of leak from a comic artist, a voice actor role, an animator or web designer, etc.

But there's been absolutely nothing, and this is from a theme that would have likely been in the works for at the very least 2 years.

Here's an MOC that's tangentially bonk related.

The first superstructure of the BRF (Bonkletech Research Facility)

We are building class leading robots at this facility, unlike anything ever seen before on this planet.

The LEGO group has cut our lifelines and slashed our funding, but we must prevail, because what we are doing is bigger than all of us.

We are quite literally resurrecting Bionicle, from the ground up.

Saw a pic of a Transformer or some shit that I thought was a Bionicle at first glance, reminded me we still haven't got a reboot. Any news? Each year I wonder why they haven't put out like a $250 "Pro" version of a classic Toa or other iconic set to sell to collectors. Also what ended up happening to that Masks of Power game?

Looking at this reminds me why we can't have brickshit Bionicle. You know how easy that would fall apart, literally? If it's not technic base with ball joints and sockets, it's literally not going to work when your target audience is inevitably going to be children.

Dunno how out of the loop you are, but I have the basic Sora and Cole's mechs (that use brick ball joints and ratchets for the torso), and seem sturdy enough as they are. Even the Dreamzzz figures that use ratchet joints are also pretty solid to move around n such.
>>
>>11060631
>>11060609
the problem with these mechs is that they're not easily customisable
the reason bionicle was popular was because of the prefab limbs and the ease of making your own characters.

>>11060637
Lego is highly customizable, but it is true, a lot of these mechs haven't had a blueprint to follow for customization, which Bionicle did.
That is what Lego has been trying to fix with the introduction of SCCBS, they want to create an easily customizable frame. the latest small Ninjago mechs are proof of that concept.
Now if Bionicle does return in 2025, we might see the evolution of it.

Similar to how Technic action figures became Bionicle

G2 has it's place, aesthetic wise. That or I'm nostalgic for my senior year of high school just as much as I am being in elementary school and playing with G1 on the playground, or getting a cheap Walmart printed cake with the Toa Nuva lineup for my birthday. Point is times are better when Bionicles are on the shelves, so if 2025 actually has G3 then maybe the world will heal.

You and your brainworms should go outside more.

This retard aside, why on earth to "moc" a human character when half of it is just some sculpted mass. I've seen custom figures utilize bionicle parts previously for joints, very good ones too, but the sculptors themselves don't call those mocs.

I did rewatch them and I’d say the Miramax trilogy is still good.
There’s a certain charm and SOVL to them that makes them fun to look back on. The voice acting and soundtrack especially holds up really well. Lots of leitmotifs in the score for different characters.
Legends of Metru Nui was easily the best of the three if you wanted to rewatch one.

Legend Reborn is still dogshit though. Soulless kids movie with a dull and boring score
