Allow me a little rant here.
Everybody keeps talking about how CCBS is so superior to the old BIONICLE System because it is less specialized. This is absolute balogna. Neither system is better than the other. A lot of people say that the old Bonkle system was way too specialized; to me, that was one of the biggest things that made BIONICLE BIONICLE. The smooth textures of the CCBS are far too futuristic for the old, almost steampunk, look of BIONICLE. The new texture pieces certainly help to bring back that look, but by using the textures you loose connection points!
Besides that, CCBS is stale. LEGO Designers have yet to use it in a very creative way. MOCists have found very few creative ways to use it. In fact, it is rarely used by most MOCists! Most prefer to build "Custom" Parts out of Technic pieces. Even some of the people I know who claim that CCBS is a superior system rarely use it because it's actually an inferior system and difficult to make it look good.
CCBS armor is sometimes difficult to incorporate into MOCs without using the official CCBS bones, which generally detract from the overall appearance of a MOC. The fact CCBS armor attaches only attaches via ball joints and lightsaber pins is really the biggest problem with the system. It's so incompatible with nearly all other forms of BIONICLE and Technic parts that it just doesn't work. So in that way, CCBS is too specialized. It only connects well with it's own parts.
To sum it all up, neither CCBS nor the original BIONICLE system is superior to the other. The old system was more compatible with other Technic parts but had more specialized parts that couldn't be used to great extent. CCBS is less specialized, per say, but really is still only compatible with pieces from its own system.
Feel free to discuss this as I really would like to hear everyone's thoughts on CCBS.
(These are just my opinions. A little post I put together on the Official LEGO Message Boards but I thought I'd share over here and achieve total world domina--I mean uh, yeah....read it.)
