Couldn't have said it any better.
This whole hype train thing started a little after I last commented on this thread, and I am a bit disappointed in seeing it get a little too out of hand. I haven't commented since because truthfully I'm waiting.
Yes, it is exciting that after all these years we are finally getting some interest and support from a guy very high up in the involvement chain for Bionicle back in the day. It's exciting and fun to see new things, and while I have always been supportive of whatever it is Faber is doing, I've also always been realistic about it.
As the cast has said multiple times, Faber doesn't have the greatest record when it comes to following through (I relate, honestly). And that's just the reality of it. He's not getting paid to do this, there are no deadlines really, this is something he has an idea for, but can really afford to let go at any time.
All we've seen so far are some promising ideas, but ideas are all they really are. It is promising, and the possible prospects are exciting, but as of right now there is nothing to really be "hype" about.
The best we can do right now is sit and wait for something to actually be made known. We can joke all we want about what things might be hidden in a canister lid, but don't go around saying Bionicle is coming back, and do not be on the hype train.
It's the equivalent of someone throwing a few pieces of coal back into the train engine. The train moves maybe a few feet, and the guy doing it might keep putting coal in, but we don't know. So don't sit on the train shouting "THE TRAIN IS MOVING AGAIN!" when it hasn't really gone anywhere yet.
