    It was a really stupid joke. It could have at least been like the one
    on Eurobricks. A Bionicle visual dictionary. Oh, btw, I got banned there also XD

    Aww shucks, thanks! (I actually just had an update btw ;)  )

    If Turaga Nui was in the story arc I totally would
    have laughed. What's worse then combining six old
    people that ramble on about the past?

    In lies the problem with BZP's community management, when they aren't chasing their own ass trying to keep Greg around (which I'm, quite frankly, surprised he still is, the man is a saint for dealing with thousands of questions from 12 year olds with barely any grammar skills) and keeping the boards Disney Cartoon G-Rated, they're running around in gangs of staff members perpetuating a bunch of their own in-jokes and fancies that either go way over the heads of the general sheep on those boards, or only make sense to them.

    Honestly I preferred it when the older admins were still around, like Binky, Ninjo and mfuss, at least then it seemed like the site knew how to have fun. Heck, even Rex could be a hard ass at times, but I'll be damned if he didn't handle that job like a boss. I've talked with Black Six on occasion, and he's got a good head on his shoulders, but the general decline in what made old-BZP since he became top dog has made me lose faith. Even the running trend of staff members all changing their names and avatars to match a theme was original at times, nowadays, meh (do they even still do that anymore?).

    That being said, I'm sure some veteran BZP member is gonna read this at some point and go post it on some private board. Lool hai guyz.

    Ah, but in our hearts, it never ends. Can Hero Factory do less?

    Ahem- it'd be kinda cool to see Lego sneak in some Bionicle references into some Hero Factory sets, oh and, will Hero Factory even have a story, aside from what we've heard of so far?

    Lego said that the story line is something that fans can change, as far as I've heard. Not really sure how that's going to work just yet.

    Bionicle's story was kind of an ongoing epic. Hero Factory's is more episodic or so I've heard.

    Furmanisms make my ears bleed.

    Which makes no sense since I'm reading it. YOU SEE THE POWER YOU'VE UNLEASHED??? *hair falls out*

    I hope Hero Factory has a decent story. I'm not quite out of the constructable action figure realm just yet. (almost picked up those Megabloks IM2 guys to tide me over, but they didn't ring up. :(  )

    I think Hero Factories story will be more like Wikipedia, any moron will be able to add something.

    I just hope it starts already so I can start the supplement/prologue/sequel-to-the-other-story.

    Then that would just be too perfect.

    According to the Toyfare article the storyline for Hero Factory will be analogous to the lego model in general. Using parts you like, you can build your own tale via the website. They talked a lot about "constructable comics" and what not.
