Wow, that video really kinda hit me right in the feels man. I know that I've been feeling what you've been saying lately, and that I've been on a MASSIVE nostalgia kick, (which is the reason I'm now back into BIONICLE) but I can't help but feel guilty.
My childhood wasn't exactly a simple time, I understood, even when I was five that the world was kinda screwed up. I tried to hide from the real world, and to be honest, I still am hiding, because its easier right? But until 2007, I didn't have that kind of refuge, I had no video games or interesting books to read, but then came this awesome LEGO theme featuring build able action figures and an extremely relatable story and characters that I connected with and loved. BIONICLE became my refuge from the real world, It helped me get through some tough times in life, knowing that somewhere out there, somebody else knew how it felt to be powerless in your own body and alone.I was never very open and have just recently began to start sharing my feelings with others so at the same time, I didn't talk with anyone about it, not even my parents. I felt like BIONICLE was mine in a sense, I felt like I could control it and decide what was true and what wasn't. I felt like this world was created for me, but then in 2010, I felt like LEGO was taking away something that wasn't theirs.
It really broke my heart, but again, since I had nobody to talk to before, I still had no one to talk to now, when I needed it most. Don't get me wrong, I have some pretty great friends who would try to help out with a lot of my problems, but None of them understood the attachment I felt to simple pieces of plastic.
After watching the video, I felt kinda guilty of my recent nostalgia. I felt guilty about wanting BIONICLE back and having another little hole to crawl away in, (I have enough as it is now) but most of all I felt guilty about wanting BIONICLE to stay the same.
You were right when you said humans don't react to change well, and when that change happens to something you love, it can hurt because it feels like you had no say, you were powerless, which is the exact reason I gravitated towards BIONICLE in the first place.
I do understand why LEGO would change the story, it's confusing, conflicting and massivly weird, which is why I loved it even more, and I do want BIONICLE to be a multi-generational treasure. But, I'm biased, in fact we're all biased and I suppose it's really just a question of how you're going to let your biases influence you. Personally, I'm still happy BIONICLE is coming back at all, and even if the story happens to be terrible and the characters severely flawed, like a bad movie, I'm going to stick through to the end.
Wow, that got way too long, I feel as though I should've made a seperate topic for this. anyways, if you made it to te end of this, thanks I guess, and I apologize for using the internet as a venting space.
