I am honestly super excited to see where this is going to go, and hopefully it does go somewhere.
It seems like, from Faber's posts, he has something planned that does involve LEGO, but I've honestly been getting my hopes up that if that should fall through (which is probable), then he might somehow, someway, gain the rights to the line and start developing it as a multimedia franchise.
Imagine a new Bionicle focusing entirely on the story, composed entirely of art pieces, literary pieces, maybe comics and videos. Something like the world of SCP, but for a sci-fi fantasy theme. That would be super awesome, and an amazing way to continue the spirit of the line without the baggage of toy sales restricting it.
Whatever it is, it definitely seems it's going to be aimed towards older fans. Faber has talked about how Bionicle could make a relevant return to modern culture by focusing more on the idea of "the moral of the machine," and AI technology. It really is a modern issue that needs something to address it in a new way, and if Bionicle could become that thing...that's just amazing. And led by the guy mostly responsible for the original property in the first place? A dream come true.
From Faber's Instagram:
"Wow!!! Everybody. This reaction makes me want to drive directly to Billund for a meeting about "youknowwhat". I will bring all your energy and thoughts and fight for some kind of small light in this dark passage. Thank you for all this. I had to use 1st of april for this because maybe it ends up with a steep drop into an abyss. Like all risky adventures this is a pure leap of faith! I will keep you postet... "
