Hello! I am Nyran. This is the second of a series of 10(for now) topics that I'm gonna make for the sake of discussing a various year of Bionicle as a whole.
We've had big overall topics, like whatever, but few if any topics focused on specific years, outside 2015.
So, I wanna know some aspects that you liked/didn't like/stood out to you about certain years! This topic's gonna be 2002. I chose this one because I feel that most often people tend to just group it along with 01 and 03.
2002, year of the Bohrok Swarms. Wake One, Wake them All, that stuff. This year is widely regarded as one of the "Golden Years" which was of course 2001-03.
However, I'd like to hear some stuff on the year on its own, with as little connection to 01 and 03(especially the latter) as possible, while still keeping them in mind. I just want 02 to be the focus.
I think this year will prolly be one of the hardest to say a lot about, but I implore everyone to try.
I personally enjoyed this year more than 01, mostly for the Bohrok conceptually. 'Cause while the rahi were antagonists for the most part, well, they were just animals under mind control. At the time, it appeared that the Bohrok were the first truly antagonistic force. These guys were a strange, alien army, with powers to mirroring or just trumping(in the case of Lehvak) the Toas' own powers.
The titans this year were also all amazing. The Boxor is still highly regarded, since a lot of people like Nuparu, and the Exo-Toa, while not touched upon as much, is still cool as a concept and often do people make MOCs of armor and stuff for Toa. The Bahrag of course were great, and I enjoyed them just as much, fitting the Bohrok aesthetic, while still different enough to not just be upscaled Bohrok themselves.
But enough from me, how about your guys' thoughts?
