Hello everyone, I'm writing this to tell you all about what I just got from Lego Team.
Basically I wrote them an email asking about will there be any chance that both Bionicle and Hero Factory would return in the future and this is what I got as an answer:
See the last segment of the letter, they said they will consider returning it if a lot of fans go and ask for them to bring back those themes in the future. Lets unite as the fans we are and fight for what we want. Both HF and Bionicle Gen2 have SO much potential that it's ridiculous how little it is being translated into the story that both lines got. This comes from the person who was a fan ever since '02. Yeah, I'm not ashamed of liking Hero Factory either. Better an original IP than overpriced Star Wars licensed figures.
Come on guys, go and write them an email that you want it to come back, both Bionicle and HF. Or not both, it's your choice. Now here is why I think Hero Factory SHOULD come back. The story wasn't actually that bad, everyone just hated it how it changed the building system, that in my opinion is much much better than Technic one. Sets were amazing, especially from the early years like Von Nebula, Fire Lord (he was decent), Scorpio, Rocka XL, Witch Doctor (ohmygod this was literally one of the best sets the line got), etc. And since we did end up having a ton of cliff hangers, Christian Faber explained it why they did that on his blog recently. Here is the link: faberfiles.blogspot.com/2016/0… it would be nice to see it get finished. Hero Factory has so much potential. Books nor the episodes weren't bad, it's just that the Bionicle fans were mad that it ended and got replaced with a "cheap" copy.
I love both lines and I do want to see them both end properly. While Bionicle Gen2 ending wasn't actually bad, it was just how they got sent away that made it surprisingly horrible. But hey, I'll take anything but the Stars ending.
Please spread the word and hopefully the Team will bring the line(s) back.
Thank you for reading. ~TheTDChronicler
