We don’t have another one of these right? We have one for Bionicle, Ninjago, Chima, HF… So I guess it’s pretty “official”? I mean, I have heard people talk about them before, but never this specifically and of this scale. SO yeah, this is a general topic so talk about whatever you want. So, in my opinion:
The sets: Only ever got one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqbREqE46OY
I thought the sets were pretty good, considering the fact that it predated Bionicle. I don’t really know why it don’t catch on. I always wanted more sets from ebay or something, but with Bionicle G2 and System collections, I just didn’t find them priority… But I did always like Millennium. I had to read the Maze Runner series for class, and all I could think of was this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqbREqE46OY I always thought the box art was a little disturbing and creepy for some strange reason. Even Jet’s face was weird. Oh, and “canisters” were really cool.
The Story: To me, more engaging than Roboriders. I was about creatures who fought all over a planet for dominance I think, then some kind of post apocalyptic thing happened and they mutated into the summer wave. Theres a lot of theories on it and I always found it mysterious. Please post theories. I love hearing them.
The Sets I never actually got a set. The Boss always looked pretty cool. http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/RoboRiders?file=8516_Boss_2.jpg I obviously know why their grouped with constraction, but the sets are more TECHNIC then anything else. Umm…. I really don’t know what else to say except I feel like these sets were kinda released in more of Technic’s more um… glory days? Back when even Bionicle was considered Technic. So these sets schtick are their wheels which is alright I guess. I liked Throwbot disks better. I like Throwbots in general better.
The Story Once again, the story was never clear. Apparently there was a virus (Maze Runner vibes again) and the RoboRiders had to team up from their parts of… actually Earth I think. THey may have been humans in vehicles. Now that I think about it, I kinda would want to see these themes brought back. But anyway, the 6 of them had to combat this virus. They eventually do, only to be confronted by The Boss. Except we never learn WHO The Boss is! post logical conclusions Maybe this and Throwbots take place in the same world?
All in all, both themes were pretty cool. I wish they continued just a little longer. I’d like to see them in CCBS, probably more than people would want to see Bionicle (in CCBS) rather than in the old building system. Both themes were actually kind of dark or at least had an interesting and mysterious story. I liked Slizer more though, maybe because despite the little story it has, Roboriders has practically nothing. But at least it has a conclusion. We never knew what happened at the end of Slizer 2000. Post apocalyptic wasteland, Huge enemy that has army, one big hero, reminds me of Bionicle summer 2016…. Hmm…
