Well, sicknasty. I get to post the first topic in this forum and be the seventh member.

So, do you think BIONICLE 2015 will parallel to the original (like Star Trek did), or do you think it will be completely new?

That's the thing about opinions, Onua.  Everyone else keeps having stupid ones.

So far, we're seeing a parallel in names and the island shape. Perhaps we'll also see a parallel with Makuta being a primary villain, if he comes out of his coma.

I'm not sure what to put here yet.

Honestly, I don't think there will be that many parallels as a whole.
The various callbacks and whatnot for the first half of the first year were a nice nod to the older fans, but I think that, as the line progresses, it will start to feel more and more detached from our ideas of what Bionicle is.

That's not to say that it's a bad thing, though. Personally, I'm very much interested in seeing what directions they take the new line.

I think they'll most likely be a few wink wink nudge moments and references to the original. Not much other than that sadly but hey I like reboots.

I'm still hoping for a tunnel between dimensions or something... but I'm not sure lego wants to take it back in the sci-fi direction again so that's doubtful. http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif

Could be like a theory for The Rebuild series. The theory is that the rebuild is actually a continuation in the sense the universe restarted itself after third impact. Could Bionicle gen2 be like that? Doubt it, but I'd love that so much.

God, I hope not. I haven't been following the reboot's story at all, but it can only benefit from not being linked to Gen1.

Well, the Skull Spiders were already kind of like self-moving Krana, so there's a direct parallel to the Bohrok-arc in Gen 1.

The summer wave will probably resemble the Bohrok-Kal arc in some way. It looks like the Skulls will steal the Toa's Golden Masks, therefore cutting off or at least severely weakening their elemental powers, similar to how the Bohrok-Kal stole the Nuva symbols and disabled the Toa Nuva's elemental powers.

Speaking of the Nuva, I'm pretty sure the Toa will have some kind of transformation or upgrade at some point. The reason's pretty simple: Toys. Lego's primary interest is selling toys and they need to either upgrade the Toa or introduce new Toa so they can release new toys.

But yeah, that's pretty much all I can say so far.

I think it is unlikely that they will parallel the old story any more than they already have. Certainly they won't link back to it. It's probably for the best that they do that, though, it'd be a waste to see it come back after so long only to do the same old things.

I will admit I'm still kind of hoping that rebooted Piraka will show up at some point, though. I...like Skakdi, and they could make for some interesting campy enemies.

I think they will parallel it, not intersect. Like next year, maybe they will have some G2 Bohrok, and then the MoUP will come up with some G2 Rahkshi.

And then there will be the Mask of Anti-Ultimate Power which will divide the MoUP back into its corresponding element masks. And when it does that there will be a big explosion because they didn't do that in Gen 1. And then some characters die in the explosion and get revived for some reason.

And there you go.

You are a genius fishers64. I'd be surprised if that's not what they do.

I myself don't think that they will parallel it more than the examples we already have seen, in the little nods to the old fans.

Same, I suppose. As long as the story is engaging.

Hmm, never thought of that! Well said!

I wouldn't be totally averse to stuff from G1 showing up, but I'd want to have the new universe developed a little bit before they start cribbing notes from previous years though. And I'd vastly prefer if nothing was taken too closely to how it happened before.

^agreed, there's no point in a reboot if it just ends up being a repeat of the original with some characters renamed.

Well, yes, that makes total sense. A new story means new direction. Still, a nod here and there would be nice. http://www.bzpower.com/board/public/style_emoticons/default/shrugs.gif
