    Don't let the title fool you, this is a real deal. This bit of info was discovered only here at Brickfest PDX in a TRU pamphlet showcasing upcoming sets in August and September of 2007. There was one item listed under Bionicle, which is set #8940 Karzahni. However, it isn't just him that comes with the set. Talk Back in our Forums  Read Full Story

As was the case with previous sets and models, the instructions for the early 2007 sets (and the occasional magazine model) are now online.

    Market News Walmart Build-Your-Own Two Pack
    [Source: Ziv, Rojaz]
    If you head over to Walmart.com you may find an interesting deal. For $15, you can pick one "Evil Bionicle" and one "Hero Bionicle" at a pretty good discount. You don't really have to pick one of each, which is good, since the good guys only consist of Kongu and Jaller Inika while the bad guys are five of the Barraki (no Kalmah). While the choices don't make a lot of sense, especially as far as the story goes, it's still a good deal you should pick up if you need the sets! Talk Back in our Forums

    In the LEGO Magazine itself, there was some stuff on the Barraki and a "BIONICLE Comic Cover Contest", where you get to draw your idea of a BIONICLE Comic cover."
