Totally wanna make Keetongu, but I'm pretty sure I have nowhere near enough CCBS parts for any sort of coherent creation, let alone enough keetorange. Here's hoping! But yeah, wouldn't it be neat to see a CCBS Keetongu? If anyone else wants to give it a stab please do because I just feel in my gut that there's a lot of potential there and I'm worried nobody else will think of it for whatever reason.

Lego totally stopped using flame yellowish orange in constraction after Jetbug (and I guess Stringer 3.0), which is pretty weird in retrospect. I know last year there were a couple of new ccbs parts in that color, but oddly enough they both turned up in Chima sets. (8m shells in Lavertus' Outlands Base and the Savage Planet paws in Laval's Fire Lion) Definitely odd...it really does make making a proper ccbs Keetongu kind of difficult. I guess one could try to make him in yellow, but if you don't make Keetongu keetorange, that's kinda....

There's plenty of keetorange shells in lewa and PoJ. if you have either or both, its definitely feasible to make him, just with a lil more black/grey/silver/gunmetal, than the original.

There are actually a fair number of keetorange shells in constraction—more than Reddish Brown, Dark Red, or Earth Green. But as farmstink pointed out, they're spread out over a ridiculous number of disparate sets. Keetongu would be a very feasible model in CCBS, but you'd probably have to make a Bricklink order to make it work.

Well, there's really only 6 4m shells between the two of them, plus 4 4m bones from PoJ. For a titan sized figure that doesn't really sound like enough to make it distinct as the main color. Combined with Jetbug, I guess it could work (since Jetbug comes with some very useful parts, like flame yellowish bones, 6m shells, and a couple of torso shells), but I'm going to guess that a lot of the people that are coming back into constraction with Bionicle probably won't have a 2011 HF set like Jetbug. That being said, there's definitely some flame yellowish orange parts from gen 1 that could work with a CCBS build--the bohrok faceplate, for instance, would fit right in. But overall there's too few parts spread across too many sets that were released at odd intervals. Considering that, again, (as far as ccbs goes) it only showed up in 2 HF sets in 2011, then made a small comeback in System sets in 2014, and didn't return properly to constraction until this year with the Jungle sets.

 

That being said, I just realized that I do have Jetbug, Stringer 3.0, and the two Jungle sets. Who knows. I may give it a shot one of these days.
