I’m basically coming here to let some steam off for how I feel.
If you haven’t heard or seen by now then let me give you a little information.
At Lego Con ( at least I think it was Lego Con ) they showed the 90th anniversary celebratory set “The Lion knights castle” and the classic spaceship. So out of the 4 contenders ( Castle, Space, Pirates, and Bionicle ) 2 have gotten different sets. The last pirates set that came out was the pirates of barracuda bay which retired in later 2021 I think. And Bionicle which won the first fan vote has still been no where to be seen since G2 retired( and no mini tahu does not count, a full return to bionicle, a bionicle set is what counts). So whats with lego? Do they just not care anymore. We have multiple online forums communities and threads and yet it is almost like lego treats it like a stain on its history. That they were only doing it for money and they weren’t thinking right. Because system blocks are what lego is and needs to be. Have we really been forgotten about? I love bionicle and yet seeing it like this almost breaks me. No matter how many Fans create contests and MOCs it doesn’t feel complete. That missing piece is Legos support and the fact that we have a future for bionicle.
I’m sorry if you don’t care about anything I really had to say I just had to get this off my chest. But I’ll leave you with a question. Are we forgotten because there are no main line sets for bionicle, or have we been forgotten on purpose.
