  2. It seems I have forgotten my fireproof umbrella. Whoopsie! I run into a cluster of tall trees for cover. ...wait a minute.... there weren't trees here last time I checked! Most everything was completely decimated! It appears that in the time this battle has been stagnant the surrounding terrain has morphed into something.... new.
  3. All that considered its kinda neat in a weird way. Even if its a fake I'd still give someone 15 bucks for it. 2000? Not a chance
  4. Hello all! Just selling a few extra sets. Nothing too rare or collectible unfortunately. I've included notes on some due to missing parts.

  5. Basically what the title says. I remember when my then best friend got Matoro Inika and saved opening it until I came over later that day. We opened it up and were just completely blown away by everything in the container. The light up sword, the massive chest pieces, the rubber mask and green head, all of the limbs that were almost twice as long as anything that had come on the previous toa AND were trans-blue - none of it was like anything we had ever seen before! We just kept repeating that this was a completely new Bionicle, a new generation. Our world was shaken. We revered Matoro as the most powerful being in our universe for all the rest of that weekend. I'm curious if anyone else had this sort of experience with a particular set or wave of sets. There were others that I had similar experiences with, but this was the most prominent in my memory.
  6. The only real draw to them for me is the fact that its more parts and a greater variety of interesting shapes I can experiment with. I'm much more into MOCing than anything else, so parts are usually my focus
  7. I enjoy this revival I rip the Ignika off my face and chuck it at Kardas (because all the cool kids are throwing stuff at Kardas it seems). "Bandwagons are fun!"
  8. Currently negotiating with a few guys on reddit for some parts and partial sets. Most of my purchases now are geared more toward expanding my bulk for mocs rather than finishing my collection seeing as the last few have been bucket list sets (Maxillos, Roodaka, Tahu Mistika etc) Also mad respect to @Xboxtravis for the Rush sig
  9. In the midst of all of this I finally am able to make one cohesive thought: "....But who has the high ground now?" The Inika, as good as its' intentions might be, misunderstands my ponderings and transports us all to the high ground. Well, ground isn't exactly the right word seeing as we are now all several thousand feet in the air and falling FAST. Myself, Laval, MoarBotar, all others, the NPCs, the muffins and other pastries, Kardas, ambiguous infinity stone, duct tape, remaining jedi and clones, vader guy, and all other pop-culture references that have slipped their way in are now hurtling back toward the battle ground. what a lovely view.....
  10. Regaining consciousness yet again I find myself rather dizzy. You see, the mask didn't bother separating itself from me face before floating into the sky, spinning, and zapping a few hundred muffins. Resisting the urge to vomit (again), I try to will the mask to put me down. Like a child taking their first steps, the result is tragic failure. I smash into the ground for yet another round of brain damage. Eventually however, I manage to stumble to my feet, laughing all the way due to the tickles from the muffin nibbles. How cute. Kardas, overwhelmed in the rush of muffins, mongols, and matoran looks around for something familiar, something comforting. (He did have a toa on his back just a few moments ago after all. That's pretty traumatic.) All at once, Kardas sees a physically and mentally broken figure with the mask of life fused to his head, holding a spear of fusion he stole from someone else, laughing maniacally. Could it be...?
  11. Still in a jam (sans muffin), I am left to my imagination as Kardas saunters over to me, clearly relishing the moment to finally have trapped prey. Wishing I too could just hide away in a small ball, a dimensional gate opens beside me, and someone who looks awful familiar hands me the kanohi Ignika then vanishes again. Stunned by this handsome visitor, it is a few moments before I realize the power and responsibility that has just been gifted to me. No time for a plan, I smash the mask onto my face (giving myself yet another concussion). My mask! (wait.... why did I just say that?) **** edit: as an aside, I don't get on very often, so I don't really have a huge opinion about who controls Kardas. I think its working well enough now personally
  12. Suddenly emerging from somewhere because plot, I get the sense that these are familiar folks, but I can't figure out why. I Smack Downfall over the head with the Olmak in my hand and then use it to take myself (and the mask) to an alternate dimension where I hand the mask to another version of myself in a rough situation. He needs it more than I do. I then yeet myself into the walmart dimension to get some Christmas shopping done. My(?) mask!
  13. In my crazed frenzy to get off the ship I hit my head and have been unconscious for quite a while. Out of the edges of the blackness, I get the odd feeling that I have misgendered someone.... "Hey, about earlier.... sorry I...." I cut off mid-sentence, suddenly VERY aware of my surroundings. See, the escape pods were not designed to function as fridges, and most of the food I had taken was EXTREMELY perishable. The smell of unrefrigerated goods strewn all around the pod pulls me to me senses almost immediately. Downing a Twinkie (one of the few salvageable goods), I begin to pry open the door to the escape pod. Not 15 feet away I see an odd collection of muffin delivery staff, Kardas curiously looking at a ball, and a few others watching on the now reassembled stadium seating. The smell has caused Kardas to glance away from MoarBotar. "oh no."
  14. I see the massive assault and give myself a massive facepalm. "that's not going to work....." I notice that Lipuret McKaukau is taking a nap in the corner. Concerned that I didn't notice him before I begin to question my sanity. Maybe its the radiation? Or concussion? Perhaps I am the threat? Where did I even come from in the first place? WHY WAS I SOAKING WET? IS ANY OF THIS REAL? Completely off base and panicked, I run to an escape pod and jettison myself down back to the surface, but not before emptying the kitchen and filling my pod with all the food. You guys aren't going to last anyways; you won't need it. I also notice a prototype spear of fusion laying around. No sense in letting it go to waste......
  15. I realize that I left the towel outside in the fray and rush to get on the ship. There's not much left. Thanks but sorry @Downfall.... Every time someone attacks i notice a damage count appearing. I wonder how many hit points Kardas actually has..... I ponder out loud
  16. I shiver, both because I feel a chill looking at that sickening smile and because I am still inexplicably soaking wet. I wait for a good pause in the action and ask if anyone has a towel
  17. I can vouch for the longevity of HF to kids. My brother was approaching peak age for starting interest in that sorts of stuff in 2010/2011, so all he really had to base his thoughts off were the stars (yikes...) and my stuff. Come Hero Factory and he finally had something cool and customizable (in the same sense as bionicle). The year of breakout I swear he got nearly the entire wave for Christmas. I would buy bionicle sets online for him for birthdays and stuff (Bohrok, Toa, Nidhiki, even Axonn) and although he thought it was cool, it didn't have the same charm as it did for me because HF was his 'gateway' into constraction. We both got a few sets from G2, but I think ultimately he ended up with HF as his favorite and Bionicle as mine due to timing. Maybe if G2 had happened 2 years sooner he would have been just as rabid about it as he was about HF. I think it all depends on what's being released as you go through that time. I got Bionicle and Mars Mission and he got Hero Factory and Chima. Its interesting though- because we started in different periods, our building styles are drastically different (not just because I'm older- comparing MOCs I still have from his age-ish there's a clear style difference) TL;DR 100% there's some kid out there who loves G2 to death and mourns the early cancellation with their whole soul
  18. I fall through a dimensional portal and hit the ground with a hearty SMACK. Concussed, very confused, embarrassed for interrupting, and inexplicably soaking wet, I mutter for the rest of you to continue and take a seat on the bleachers next to Downfall
  19. Tardy to the party (spoiler one of them got to 1000!), but the thing that really sold me on sokoda's model was the minifigures. I am much more of a constraction fan myself, but any set with well-designed minifigures representing the characters we know and love would be right up my alley. The ones we got in the playset sets were..... interesting......
  20. So question for ya'll (those of you still left on here, that is). What would you say is the value drop-off when a set is incomplete? Obviously a complete set is worth a lot more, but in your eyes how steeply does the completeness affect the reasonable asking price? If a set is 3/4 complete is 3/4 price reasonable or does that drop it clear down to 1/4 of the original value? Somewhere in between? Obviously there's going to be some scaling depending on the size of the set and if the missing parts are rare or exclusive. I'm curious to know your thoughts! (Also sorry if this belongs in B/S/T.. It didn't seem to fit as it wasn't actually a post about anything that I am buying or selling, just a general question about the sets. However if I am wrong I pray the mods are merciful and allow the conversation to be moved....)
  21. Good luck to all! I personally forgot it ended yesterday (I thought it ended next week) and didn't enter my Kalmah, but I doubt it would have won anyway. No biggie. I'm excited to see all the awesome entries!
  22. Update: he relisted it AND I won!! Hopefully I'll be getting those soon. I might be willing to trade some of them depending on condition and how complete they are. Right now I'm just happy that I finally won something again.
  23. I started a topic specifically for that AND NO ONE LISTENED!!! I don't want to break the prototype rule I just think it's stupid, just my opinion, I still respect Legos wishes I listened alright, I just forgot when it ended and left it by accident. Mark my words when I say I will get one someday. Someday... Lots of people have one, start a topic asking for it, they're only valued at like 40$Kanohi is my main priority at the moment. But I will seek one out eventually.What ones? Like all the kanohi from 2001 or what? I personally want the 2001 kanohi, but nonetheless... Stay on target
  24. Applying on jobs.lego.com, just like anything else, I expect. I've thought of applying for a web design job. They could sure use a good one right now... I've often wondered what sort of training or skills does it take to work for Lego? I know all the jobs aren't set designing or master building, but as far as the jobs that actually interact with bricks, how does one become 'qualified' in that regard?
  25. I'm SO MAD at myself! I found a lot on eBay yesterday that had TOA MATA NUI (as well as a bunch of other parts) for $26! I thought it ended Monday, but apparently it end last night at 8pm and I lost it. Some lucky person got Toa Mata Nui for $52. Last Sunday I missed out on a chance for 7 throwbots, two Bohrok, and Pohatu Mata for $25. Time ran out and it was unsold. He has yet to relist it. My luck on that site is so twisted and unfortunate.
