Some of you like to think back to when canisters washed ashore on a golden beach
Yeah I was totally thinking about a golden beach staring at a computer monitor for an hour straight waiting for MNOG cutscenes to load on an early 2000s dial up connection. I was really thinking about a golden beach when I couldn't build anything good with my Toa Mata pieces. Couldn't even get my Onua's legs to bend. And I had to wait a whole second month for the next comic?
Anyway, my friends and I all bought into this junk, and it was fun for a short time. But it faded quickly and we all grew up and got rid of our bionicles (except me of course, cause I figured it would make good compost). Then HF happened I guess. I don't know the storyline, I was in high school at this point and had pretty girls to flirt with. Then I realized my old bionicles made terrible compost after trying to bury them in my back yard, so I made lots of cool mocs by Frankensteining them together. It was mildly entertaining and I still do it from time to time.
Flash forward to the past year, and I bought a whole lotta of HF men off craigslist. Turns out they have balljoints just like the bionicles! So that's when it hit me, these guys are just as good as the bionicles, and I realized that they're the exact same thing!
So yeah, then I came to the boards and discovered all of the people trying to debate nonstop over which is better HF or bionicle and I don't understand. But I guess some people like HF more because it's what they grew up with, and that's fine. Heck it's probably true since dial up wasn't as common in 2010 as it was in 2001. But in the end they all make terrible compost.
