I’ve been thinking about the phenomena known as “The Dream TM”, wherein it seems many Bionicle fans have reported having dreams involving finding Bionicle sets in stores long after they were retired. I think it would be interesting if the Bionicle community could collectively hire a psychologist to study this shared experience and examine possible causes/meaning.
But in the meantime, if you’ve ever had The Dream TM, what was it like? I can think of 2 instances for myself from years ago. The first one involved me being in a 2-storey Barnes & Nobles /equivalent and going down an escalator to find the 2001-03 sets assembled and on display. I specifically recall multiples of the Ta- and Le- characters each wearing different Mata and Turaga masks in their colors. The second (technically 3 in total, but there isn’t much to the third) involved me finding the 2006 and 2007 sets (these were more around my time) at Walmart, both just seeing them on display and finding them in an ad while shopping for socks with my IRL friend, and while looking for them with my Mom also seeing Aquazone sets.
