Yeah sorry, forgot to use my eyes to look at it.
Hopefully people won't assume we jumped into existence right after Faber started posting cuz that'd be bad.
I'd like to say that you're just making up nonsense right now, but you're absolutely right. And nobody is more pettily defensive of a project than the ones working in it, who believe in the impossible without making sure they can spell it. Iliad's been in contact with some of the larger fan projects out there, and a few of them were so vicious over their concepts and superiority it was impossible to do anything with them. I won't name names for their sake.
On the contrary, I'm sure something will happen. No it's not out of blind hype, but because of Faber. He's the granddaddy of Bionicle concepts. He laid out the rules for the universe, and while he didn't really write inside of them, he defined the setting and theme of each set wave and the overarching story. And as you can see here, the mere mention of him doing something is enough to make fans go completely overboard.
He's also somebody with connections. I believe Faber's been working on something like this since a good while earlier, possibly the start of last year. He's determined to make something come of this. But he's no longer allied with LEGO, which means unless he can convince LEGO to give him some kind of legal leniency (unless the BION is just a part of the original and the name is actually totally different, like BionParty or something) then LEGO will - not may, will - shut him down so quick he'll have no room to recover.
If he's really telling the truth that he and LEGO haven't gotten anywhere yet, I think it's going to happen, and not before long.
I couldn't agree more. And I wouldn't shut down discussion of "what if it was this" because it leads to even more fan creations if this project goes under... Or maybe when. Who knows.
Power to you, Faber. Make sure you can stand.
