  1. Well, so far the Toa have done the following: Arrived on a mysterious islandReceived tutelage from wise elders who guided them through their first challenges, then inexplicably vanishedFought a bunch of spidersGot upgradedFought a boss-spiderTraveled to a new areaFought a bunch of skeletonsMet a new tutorFought a boss skeletonGot upgraded againSince the storyline's followed basic RPG rules so far, it's safe to say that they'll be fighting wild animals and bandits in the woods. Orcs and evil wizards to follow. Because you, know...these Toa are
  2. Used to have them all the time, usually to the following scheme: In a nondescript department storewander through toy aislesee a HUGE heap of Bionicle setsOld ones, rare ones, limited edition ones, etc. (most of which never actually existed)dig through them, overwhelmed by nostalgia and suchpick out a choice few to buyI'd never make it to the checkoutWe're talking 2-3 dreams like that every couple of months. Of course, they skyrocketed in the summer of 2014 for obvious reasons.
  3. Wowee...time to break out the old tacklebox, lol. Let's see... 1x Kanohi Miru, Tr. Lime Green2x Kanohi Vahi, Old Gold1x Kanohi Vahi, Bright Orange1x Kanohi Ignika, Pearl Gold Man, that box has a few memories in it... Anyway, aside from that handful of rare-ish masks, I can't really think of anything
  4. Huh...so my brother-in-law being hospitalized and he and my sister's home being defaced the next January had nothing to do with the fact that he was Sikh after all! I can't wait til I tell my Nephew! It'll be pretty easy, too, cuz the school he goes to now is 15 miles closer to my house than his old one. Man, guess those kids who broke his arm for being a "terrorist" just needed some of that famous post-9/11 intercultural unity! What a great way to respond to a positive comment. And what was positive about it? 9/11 didn't "unify" America in the slightest! It turned millions of American Muslims -- and everyone who looked like they could be Muslim, like my family -- into targets for next-door terrorism. That statement does worse than ignore the fact that American men, women, and children are being brutalized for their faith. It pretends that it did not and could not have happened because "oh boy howdy weren't we all just one big american family now?" Just because it sounds nice and gives you the warm fuzzies doesn't make it "positive."

  6. Aanchir, we don't always see eye-to-eye, but dang, you hit the nail on the head here
  7. This Ice Planet-themed MOC. The hardest part was getting the Orange Transparent Chainsaw to "work" right in a figure-scale set (though I did finally hash it out)
  8. Oh my god...Nightwish would do something like that.
  9. I mean, a thin acrylic primer will literally do the same thing, but has less risk of chipping and won't ruin the mold definition ("round-out" the edges). If you have a Wal Mart or any hobby store nearby, they'll have white acrylic paint in stock for far less than white-out. Just mix 2 parts paint with 1 part water (or 3:2, depending on the particular brand) for quick-and-dirty primer.
  10. Good luck finding one. Thanks to the McToran and Metrutoran, there isn't a 2001 mask you can't find on BL, and given the hardness of the 2001/2 mask plastic, those are the only ones you'll want to modify (barring damage and such) Are 2001 masks in great condition rare? Not at all! Like I said, with all the recolors from the McToran, finding a Miru, Akaku, (noble) Huna, Hau, Kakama, or Pakari is easy as can be. Just hit up Bricklink. Do an Advanced Search, and set your filters as follows: Item Types: partsCategory: Bionicle, Kanohi MaskYear: 2001Seller is located in/ships to: [your region & country]And that's it. Good luck!

I like the work you did on that rode! Have you customized any more masks since then? I wish. Financial circumstances have prevented me from procuring new masks, and I've given away or lost most of my duplicates over the years.

  12. The primary problem I've been having is that the '04-'10 masks use a fairly soft plastic formula that makes getting a clean edge very difficult with a rotary tool. Unless I can get directly onto my cut with a grinding bit and a buffing pad, I get a nasty "burr" around the edge (visible in the left eyesocket in pic #2 and on the cut in the final pic). Do you think that "tempering" the plastic would help with that at all? I have a heat gun and icewater readily available.
  13. Haha, well if you want to ship me some, I'd be more than happy to oblige!
  14. A good while ago, I got a new puppy. As puppies are wont to do, he started chewing on everything in sight. Unfortunately, I had a habit of leaving the occasional Kanohi mask on the floor. If you're a smart cookie, you'll put 2 and 2 together... ...and come up with this. Now, I hate throwing out Bionicle pieces, no matter the condition, so I stashed this busted Rode in a drawer for nearly two years before I remembered it and decided to put it to good use. I got out my trusty rotary tool and went to work. After all, it was already broken, what was I gonna do? Break it more? The fruit of my labors. Not too horrible if i say so myself, though it could use a bit more polish here and there. What do you think, BZP? Is this acceptable modification, or is it... ABSOLUTE HERESY?!
