those three points are actually well disputed. good work there. that said, I DO NOT WANT A GEN 3.
as proven by gen 2, lego really dont quite know what to do with the bionicle license. in part thats them, in others thats our fault. the fans have never been clear on what we like about bionicle, especially 01-05. some say the toa mata, but gen 2 brought them back and it did nothing. some say the story and how mystical and intriguing it was, but gen 2 tried that and it failed. I wont say I know what it was that made gen 1 great and gen 2 just kind of eh, but I will say that I think that bionicle was a product of its time, and the magic it created will never come back. its not the early 2000's anymore. we need to stop pretending it is, and move on.
If you ask me, Gen 3 shouldn't happen. Bionicle will live on, for now at least, through the fans. and thats probably the best place for it. this is a community of talented, creative people. and we own bionicle. maybe not legally, but we claimed it, and now we need to make good on it.
