Another Iceberg

I’ve seen a few Bionicle Icebergs go around, but all the ones I’ve seen have felt… lackluster. So I thought I’d give it a shot. I would appreciate any points I should add to the lower levels.

last two tiers
maybe it’s just me

Yeah, you definitely have to zoom in a lot for the bottom ones. Partially it’s a space issue, so I can’t make them much bigger/clearer easily.
I tried to increase the clarity for some of the smallest ones here:


And tried to get a better contrast by messing with settings/ deep frying it here:

Does that help?

I love this, glad that I can recognize most (Probably about 5 I don’t get.) Although personally reviving Bionicle shouldn’t be in the black depths, most people who have come back to Bionicle know about it and it was key in Goodguy’s rise to infamy.

I’m happy to see Babboyey and friends where they belong :relieved: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
I love the Ver.Bu reference etc. those references to awesome fan works deserve spots in the Bionicle Iceberg. Also the subcontracting joke was good.

I’m sure if I thought hard I could think of more to go in there. Might edit my comment when I can think of ones such as prototype Makuta found, unified solar system logo…
Fun stuff.

Full disclosure, that one and a few other jokes have circled around Bionicle tumblr for a while

Probably… I found out about it more recently, so it seemed more obscure to me. I think it’s ok to put it deeper with much of the Fan-content, but it probably should have been a bit higher.

I thought of a few more details to add into the iceberg, so I’ve updated the image.

The mocs are great, so they definitely deserve a mention.

Man, I thought the 2004 Orwellian dystopia theme was already a bit deep for kids; then I looked into the Ta-Matoran burden of guilt theory and… well, Vakama’s character arc makes a lot more sense now.

Also, Lewa was mind-controlled twice in the Mata Nui arc and then possessed by Tren Krom. What was the 4th time?

I thought it was 3 until recently, but the Toa Nuva all get captured, antidermis sphered, and enslaved by the piraka during on Voya Nui, (unless I’ve misremembered) bringing the count up to 4 for Lewa.
