I'm sorry about that. I personally loved hero factory for the most part (not so much invasion from below or some of brain attack), and so while I was sad to see it go, I was happier to see Bionicle return in CCBS. I personally ho[e hero factory returns if Bionicle ever collapses, as I feel the story still has a lot of potential in the future for some great sets. I miss it in a funny way, and I refuse to think of it as being truly bad, or so much of a dark time for construction. The way I see it, HF was a worthy successor of Bionicle, and G2 is a worthy successor of HF. I feel like even though it objectively wasn't at all a bad theme, it was like Faramir in Lord of the Rings - after Boromir's (Bonkle) death, his father (the community) was mad with grief and was so spiteful of Faramir living when Boromir didn't that he despised Faramir and ignored that he still had a son left, instead wishing Faramir were dead instead. It was only when Faramir "died" that he realized his mistake. It was also like Severous Snape Because in the end, Harry (bonkle community) could never have made it without Snape, who helped him the whole way, but Harry had no idea he was a good guy until when he died, and before that hated him because he thought he was evil and killed Dumbledore (Bonkles) .
This picture explains my bittersweet feelings of acceptance upon its end:
Never forget Hero Factory. It was the Hero we needed at the time, but not the one many wanted. It wasn't by any means perfect, but I miss it nonetheless.
