Doesn't seem like a year....
I didn't remember the exact date of the Anniversary, but I did think a while ago that "Huh, it must have happened around this time last year... wow, time flies..."
Whoops, I meant to post about the anniversary on the 29th...
This also means I've been posting regularly on these boards for over a year
One year since the best day in Lego's history.
i wouldn't say that
As I said on one nondescript day, 367 days ago:
I still wish the community luck, and I always will. There is nothing that can change that. However, I wish, if a G3 ever comes around, that our expectations will be a little more realistic.
I still blame the comically inept marketing."should we spend all this money on ad space and a TV show?""Nah, blow it on 24k masks, bionicle doesn't need the advertising of our other themes, I'm sure it can spread by word of mouth and the fans."
Seriously, Lego should legit fire everyone involved in that decision for their astronomical incompetence.
Basically this. Literally only 2 people I knew irl outside my brother knew what it was. Only 2, and they were already Bionicle fans.
RIP G2. You will be missed (but Slime won't miss you).
To be fair, people won't just go out and say "I like bionicle."
Although I agree that the advertisement was horrible.
Looking back I think G2 was pretty good as a thing and not a business venture.
The first wave was really strong, but it declined over time.
Yeah, I think the Uniters were a strong comeback from the skull villains (who were quite lacking), but then the final wave came, and it was rather mediocre.
I liked the Skull villains more than most, but objectively they had their flaws. It was clear there was more budget being put into the winter waves. Umarak the Hunter, for example, was better than Umarak the Destroyer.
I think UtD was much better. One, you get more bang for the buck, since for only 5 bucks more, two, the play value is quite a bit higher, and if you don't like it then you can scrap it for parts.
Yeah, Skull Villians are tons of fun to mess with. Especially Scorpio.
Looking back, I really dislike the Vahi callbacks. Feels like G2 tried to emphasize a more magical fantasy atmosphere, which wasn't apparent. the only scifi part was Ekimu's craftsmanship know-how.
I Love G2 and when it ended, I felt heart broken, butt I'm still a bionicle fan and I'm still always going be one
A big, long, collective oof for this event.
Good thing I have all the G2 sets I want on my display allready.
