I've had this idea brewing in my head for literally a year. And since Kohaku agreed with it, here we go:

We should assemble a massive army of Bionicle crabs at Brickfair.

Seriously. Think about how spectacular that would be. If loads of us BZPers who came to Brickfair or sent MOCs brought along a crab or two each, we could very quickly assemble an awful lot of them. People can build Ussals in various colors, bring Hahnah crabs from Jaller Mahri, and maybe even a few Rock Ussals from the VNOLG could make an appearance. At the very least my rock ussal will be there:



I feel like including Pewku from 2003 would just be excessive, since all the rest of the crabs are small and cute and then she'd just be this ginormous behemoth and it would be bad.

I think we should totally make this happen. Masses of little technic crabs. Just for the hilarity of it and the confusion it would cause on the other AFOLs' faces.

Who's with me?

Aye aye, Captain!

...I've got a large desert crab Barraki (and some other bits) combiner. Will that work?

I've been tempted to buy pieces for a purple Ussal (or at least as many that exist). Now I might have ta go forward with that plan.

You know, I think it would be pretty funny to have some large ones in there as well. Not like Pewku, I mean, but enormous mocs. Just a couple big ones with hundreds of smaller ones everywhere else, all over the place.

Upon further consideration, count me in. One of the MOCing projects I was busy with has fallen through. sad.gif / smile.gif

Yay! Though I have to admit I'm curious what that project could possibly have been to prevent you from building an ussal or two.

When you say it like that, that could actually make the whole thing even funnier! I didn't think of this until after I made the entry, but I actually already have a moderately-sized crab MOC underway, just for Brickfair, quite unrelated to this. But it would go with this quite perfectly. And some super-giant crabs would be hilarious.

Buggerall you people. Right when I had consoled myself with the fact that I can't afford going.

There will be photos. There had better be.

It would have been like two feet + and have strained ever fiber in my brain to the absolute limit. And I only have a head. And less than a month. So yeaaaaaaaah... I was kinda panicking then the guy managing it was like yanvmmaybenextyear. So that project is on hold. Akshully I think you were involved, weren't you?

Now to think up crab concepts... and finish Tempest... but she's too fragile to send, methinks.

Or have a giant Carapar "commanding" the army.

All the more reason to ask if I can send stuff in, since I have a couple of Hahnah crabs and could probably whip up a couple more.

Sounds great! I'll be sure to do what I can.

I also like the idea of a few big crabs, since that would be funny, and I still have this built (though tempted to use it for pieces if I need to. IDK yet).

If I could mail one in, I probably would. But I can't, so I won't... I've just been inspired to build a crab, even if I can't send it in.

So you know how other cons have things where it's a space-ship "fly-in"? Why not call this "Crustacean Crawl-In"? Catchy, gives it a name, and it has alliteration.
