Bionicle 2015? My thoughts exactly.

In early July, a picture was illegally leaked online that helped fuel growing rumors that LEGO's popular Bionicle theme will be making a return next year. There are even possible set names and numbers to burn more coal on the hype train. But as we know, rumors are just rumors until confirmed or busted. Thank Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman for that one. Read on for my thoughts.

EDIT August 19, 2014: Bionicle has been confirmed by Lego for release:

Where have we been?!?

Many places, I tell ya, many places. I haven't posted in EONS (thanks, Captain Obvious), and I apologize to the readers for this. I will explain, in the form of a paragraph.

Hero Factory really hasn't sparked that much inspiration in us at StoneHart recently. Invasion From Below and Brain Attack were not very good springboards for ideas. So, yes, we have made a few MOCs in LDD recently, but I haven't posted these just yet. A large handful of these MOCs use IFB pieces and are actually a new version of Hero! Hero Factory aside, though, StoneHart has been working on not 1, not 2, but 3 other projects. Two of these are not related to Hero Factory or LEGO in general, but the third is. The third is a LOOOONG story featuring over 30 new characters, and it may not be posted due to it being loosely based on a real war. Mission: Drones! posts have been redrafted and will be rereleased at some point in the future. Lego and StoneHart aside, our personal lives are very busy. College is nigh for both of us. We have Driver's Ed. We have AP classes (which some of our younger readers will learn about in high school), and both of us are active musicians. In short, that's where we've been.

I try my best to keep this blog up-to-date with MOCs and news. I'm currently posting some interesting LEGO news that may interest you.

More Reloaded MOCs and System MOCs on the way, though. Soon, but soon enough!
