Rumours are funny like that.

In regards to the new pieces, I like them. But I've never bothered with either story to that great an extent, though the Bionicle one was an interesting one to toy with, and still is.

Being tied down to a story does restrict the imagination. HF is cookie cutter for that reason, so you can make whatever hero/villain/animal/vegetable/mineral you want.

Make your own story, I dare you.

Some, like me, are doing so. While the BIONICLE setline's gone, the story still goes on, as do the BS01 contests. I don't like the HF story much, I do find much use in the peices.

I agree about the pieces, esp. the 2.0. In fact, my Self-MOC (Who happens to be a Toa and has his own 32 page story, in line with the Bionicle Canon) uses a pretty awesome thigh design based off of the new 2.0 limbs, and I've been experimenting with the different possibilities for the limbs, as well.

Although the storyline is still terrible... There really isn't one, come to think of it XD

So we all agree then, HF's plot sucks but at least we can use the parts. And make cool mocs.

Yes excactly. BUT also we wouldn't be having this conversation if LEGO had just incorparated Hero Factory UNDER the Bionicle name.

It's just way too expensive for what you get, even if there are some good parts...

I for one agree with you all. although nobody likes the HF storyline, their pieces are useful. and some of the more recent sets, take witch doctor for an example, aren't half bad. so all you HF haters out there, take look at them. we're MOCists, not story bashers.

WE NEED TO RISE UP AND STRIKE BACK UNTIL LEGO BRING BIONICLE BACK

Goodness, is it really as important as all that?
The hero factory pieces are really great! The 2.0 parts (and 3.0) open up several new possibilities, even if the were possible before with custom limbs, the parts to do it were in short supply.

I only buy HF sets for the exotic pieces. I think everyone should stop moaning. HF is basically Bionicle!! It is just a new/different story. Same pieces and the same technic type parts!

I'll admit that i was extremely disapointed that hero factory replaced bionicle and i actually refused to buy them at first. But now perhaps with all the uses people are getting out of the 2.0 and 3.0 sets, i'll break down and buy them. CAN'T LIVE IN THE PAST FOREVER PEOPLE!

Oh c'mon, get over it. The thing is, HF was going to start, even if Bionicle didn't end. Like maybe another series of sets along side Bionicle. The reason why it seems like HF "replaced" Bionicle is just coincidence. Bionicle ended and HF started at the same time. They didn't end Bionicle just to replace it, they ended it because they knew the sales were going down, and so was the story. Personally, I think if Bionicle kept going, it would be corrupted and ruined into something that's even worse than HF's story. That's just how it is, so please stop complaining. I hate it when people cry over Bionicle's end.

Why is it so urgent? Serious, do you think they'll bring back Bionicle if a bunch of angry kids show up at their door and demand that they bring Bionicle back? Like it or not, Hero Factory has been extremely successful, and they had to stop Bionicle sometime. Just because you happen to like them at the time doesn't change a thing in LEGO's plans.

Apparently Bionicle stopped listening to what Lego was saying and made their own things.When they started bringing back old pieces we knew it was shutting down soon.

I have a feeling that hero factory may end soon. Just looking at the new "jailbreak" line says it all. It has almost all the same pieces as the last one. I think this is a good sign for true-blue Bionicle fans...

Probably not. They haven't announced anything for a replacement for HF, or any signs of BIONICLE sets being re-continued. So, it might be an even worse sign that BIONICLE fans will have no new pieces to build with.

Hero Factory pieces are excellent new pieces to build with..

demontile, please calm yourself. We are all dissapointed in the dissapearance of bionicle, but after being given an ending, the bionicle universe should not be revived. If you are interested in more, read my comment in the decline of the bionicle community? thread.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAMji4m9S18&list=PLN4VXjm-Lg4LJmStDwZ7dy0efmyD550my">This</a>; will help explain why bringing Bionicle back is a bad idea. Ranting at lego to bring Bionicle back also makes the community look bad.

I don't like the HF story much, I do find much use in the peices.

I don't even like that aspect of the toy line, since most of said pieces are the "skeleton" or "armor" parts, and those are really hard to make something creative with. That's why you can make your own hero and have lego ship it to you - at heart, all the sets are the same.

No, I don't agree. The parts in the $8 sets can't even be called technic parts, and the new technic bits are few and far between. Plus, (and this has been a longstanding pet peeve of mine,) Hfac continues to use those annoying clear heads, which are so unrealistic. The last good heads we had were the toa phantoka's heads. After that lego started screwing it up with the av-matoran and glatorian, and we've had trans-clear heads ever since. The point of the last paragraph is that even the heads are stupid, and the masks don't work with good heads, so the only good parts in a set are the accessories, hands, and feet.

You'd be surprised at the incredible usefulness of those parts. You just have to think in the non conventional sense of how to use them.

Man, this is a popular thread. And to think I was going to lock it many months ago because the OP is futile lol

There's an active protest and pointless protest. Change doesn't happen without action. That aside, we really need to stop resurrecting these threads. This one was made over 2 years ago.

Also, my country passed it's GCSB bill today, so now they're all watching my internet activity... lol
