As my fellow Bonkle frands, I feel obligated to let you all know:

My senior quote in my high school’s yearbook is from Bionicle.

  #me    #basically one of the highlights of my senior year    #bionicle  

josephjtoye:

you could be sad about your otp but consider:

  • one making awful breakfast for the other and the other eating it because they appreciate it that much
  • one putting their ridiculous music on in the car and singing along while the other sits in the passenger seat with their head in their hands
  • the two of them going down to the beach and one getting sunburned really badly so the other slathers them with aloe gel when they get home
  • one getting home from work later than the other and stretching out on top of them like a big lazy cat while they sit on the couch in front of the tv
  • one inexplicably bringing home an animal and refusing to drop it at the shelter so they and the other have to take care of it
  • the both of them going out to a park and getting ice cream to sit with and eat on a bench
  • one sending memes to the other while they’re at work so much they turn their phone off in exasperation
  • one giving the other their jacket and not getting it back from the other until it stops smelling like them

If you really think the display pic leaks could “easily” be faked, I will laugh at you for all eternity.

Could they be fake, by all means yes, but easily faked?

Nuh-uh.

Someone said that for the coloured pic, a person just rearranged the original shelf display pic and gave it colour. The problem with that theory is that somehow the picture became larger and easier to see when being upscaled, this is not possible in the slightest.

The reason I think it’s true is because of the way LEGO has poorly covered their asses whenever something appeared, eg, the “Coming Soon” splash page that used to be there when you searched bionicle, probably removed due to the craze behind it


TL;DR - I could be wrong and this is all fake, but there is no way you could ever say they were “”easily”” faked.

Perhaps the “original colored photo” was created first, and the black-and-white one made from it.

It is the 21st century. High-end photo editing programs are easily accessible. Computers are the size of your palm. Yes, someone who has the the time, skill, and boredom could EASILY create a fake photo. (Especially if that photo is pixelated or blurred.)

Just because they are accessible, doesn’t mean they are capable. How could the coloured photo be the original B&W leak if they have completely different layout and designs?

Your argument seems to just be composed of

I don’t know.  Since I haven’t inspected these leaks, I’m not in a position to argue anything.  I’m just saying, there are lots of people out there who can make “fake leaks,” and these Bionicle leaks could just as easily be fabricated by some guy with too much time on their hands, which is why I don’t these these leaks are real.

Your blog has an interesting looking theme/template, do you think Bionicle will return in 2015?

Why thank you.  It’s still not quite perfect, I might redo the colors again.

I highly doubt Bionicle is returning.  All the pics I’ve seen so far could easily be fake, and there is virtually no reason why Bionicle is returning or even should return.  The way I see it, Lego just got through a huge promo via The Lego Movie.  Their sales are probably doing great, and from what I can tell their Hero Factory series is also fairly successful for a new generation of fans.  As a corporation, there is no economic incentive to revive an older series, especially since the majority of its fans have lost interest or are not worth the investment.  Bionicle ended abruptly for that very reason: there’s no more profit (at least, nothing significant enough), hense why they cut it off at a whole bunch of cliffhangers.  There may also be legal reasons why Greg Farshtey can no longer continue the storyline (I may be wrong on that, but I’m pretty sure that’s another big reason why he dropped Bioniclestory).

If it does happen to be true, well…I’ll definitely have mixed feelings about that.  But since nothing has been confirmed, I don’t see the point in worrying about something that is unlikely to ever happen.

And either way, Bionicle has already done what it needed to do: reach out and change the lives of us Bionicle fans.  I’ll be honest: never has a franchise influenced and continued to influence me as much as Bionicle.  For me, there’s no need for any toy company or creative directors to continue the story.  From here on out, the story belongs to us fans to take in new directions.

Easily be fake?

Hahahahahahaha

The wonders of modern technology never cease.  You saw how that one guy put together a fake Takanuva box art.  It’s easy for someone who knows what they’re doing.  And if I were the person doing the leaking, I would at least leak some high-quality pics to prevent skepticism or confirm that Bionicle is returning without a doubt.  My career would be hanging by a thread anyways: might as well go all the way.

Plus, we must think rationally.  I mean, give a solid, undisputable reason why those “leaked” pics are the real deal.  Other than someone’s word; someone saying that they are involved with the team confirming that Bionicle 2015 is a thing is not credible.  This is the internet.  It could be anyone.  Anything could happen.  With no way to prove that it’s a Bionicle comeback.

Modern Technology my fucking ass.


loganmcowen's fake leaks were so obviously fake. Yeah, he put it together quite well, but he missed so many things that it was a dead giveaway that it was fake, plus, even with our fancy new technology, there's no way someone could have upscaled a ~500 x ~200 px image with out any decrease in picture quality, the largest version now has so much more detail than the first, plus, with this level of detail in the newer, it would be super obvious by now if they were manufactured in LDD, like Logan's fake Takanuva.

Other than the fact this person’s word has been right about many other coming products for other themes (ie, Chima, Ninjago etc), they even said what one of the products hidden at SDCC were a few days before it was revealed, and they were spot on. And yes, they did do a high quality leak eventually, in case you missed that.

Exactly, we do have to think rationally. Thinking rationally =/= denying everything presented.

I for one think it would be far too much effort to even be worth faking, even if I was an expert at this stuff, it would still be a waste of time.

If it were fake, obviously the colored image was created first.  The first black-and-white leak we saw was created FROM that.  I never said the colored, bigger image was created from the smaller black-and-white.  Of course that’s impossible.  Any larger image existed first and could have been posted after the initial leak.

I am not making any denials.  A small part of me suspects that some form of a Bionicle comeback could happen, otherwise I would not make any arguements.  I just don’t see enough evidence to confirm without a doubt that Bionicle is coming back.  Until such definite proof exists, I would rather believe that it is not coming back and not being let down than getting all hyped up and having my hopes shattered into itty bitty pieces.

And if you wanna talk about something being worth faking or being a waste of time, I once spent 6 hours straight on my laptop finding high-quality promo pics of Sherlock and Star Trek and photoshopping Sherlock’s face onto Spock’s body to create an ID image for Sherlock as a science officer of Starfleet.  All just because I was bored and nothing was stopping me from doing that.  When it comes to whether or not something is worth wasting time on, it’s all perspective.
