I don't much care for Bionicle's predecessors at all.Some of the sets are innovative and cool (The Slizer that transforms, whichever that is), but for the most part... they just don't look at all appealing.
I think CCBS protagonist sets should've stayed smaller, at the impulse-buy price point, instead of slowly getting taller.
I liked the Av-Matoran. Not necessarily the build as a whole, I thought the Agori were pretty terrible, but the first six figures to use that build are ones that I really, really like.
The only gear function on a non-vehicle set that I like is the Bohrok's head-smash.
I like the Inika build. While it did get stale, I liked the design a lot.
I never liked the HF 2.0 foot. Despite this, I have it on my self-moc. I've disliked it in every set it's been in, and yet I deliberately chose it for the character that represents me. WHat we take from this is that I make no sense.
Core Hunter is the best CCBS set.
I prefer the Ignition Trilogy to the Mata Nui years.
The Good Guy meme is dead. Not that it was particularly funny to begin with.

I found the "more open setting" of G2 to be creatively stifling. Most of the masks were tied to a specific character, and their powers were elemental, a far cry from the varied and non-specific Kanohi of G1. There was one island with six villages. G1 had a whole world of islands with various weird and wonderful creatures, different factions and organisations, and a wide array of secondary elements. I had the same opinion of Bara Magna in 2009, and of Hero Factory.
