Nice. Also, just wondering, is it pure 99.9% platinum, or an alloy?

I must say i am not very impressed. Yes it is the ultimate collectors piece but i feel ever since you started collecting for it you have practically bragged about it which just puts me off.. However here is my question. How do we know you actually took that picture and just did not take it off of some various site and what not? Pictures can easily be faked and stolen.

Thanks guys, and to "a vox in a box" I don't mean to sound like I'm bragging, I was just advertising my B/S/T topic. I didn't for sure have it secured yet so I was doing everything I could to get it.

You can tell it's mine because that is my solid gold hau and the display in the picture, but if you don't believe me, you will soon enough, this us just the teaser topic after all.

OMG!!! It's amazing! I visit the old owner's store pretty frequently and he told me that someone was pretty close to buying it, but I didn't know it was you. He posted on facebook that he would be displaying it at his store before he sold it yesterday, but I was out of town. On topic, That is completely amazing that you have it, and my most true congratulations on sticking to your ambition and fulfilling your goal of buying that mask. I hope you treasure it for years to come.

Do you mind if you took a pic of the back? Just want to see its glory from all possible angles. That and the fact I never saw the back of a 2001-2003 mask.

The avohkii resembles a 2004+ mask from the back.

there's always gotta be that one guy

 

anyway, well done MC! congrats on being the first person ever to own a complete collection of official Bionicle sets/pieces...that we know of

 

also i'd just like to point out that the news article described the mask as being "of the character Avohkii"

I'm just waiting for LEGO to see this and be like "Oh, you wanted a complete collection? Well, we have a Tuyet set, but only one was made, and we get to keep it. Oh, you want it? Uh, nope."

 

Congrats, though. Great to see that you stuck with your goal and have seen it completed.

Put it next to the other three Avohkiis!

 

There are actually five Avohkii masks besides the Platinum one. 2003 Takanuva came with a gold mask and a sparkling crystal mask, Makuta came with silver masks, 2008 Takanuva had a large grey mask, and 2010 Takanuva had his own silver mask.

I already knew that much. I was simply referring to the first two and the last one.

However here is my question. How do we know you actually took that picture and just did not take it off of some various site and what not? Pictures can easily be faked and stolen. 

 

I think I have to agree with this guy, I don't think that you could have made 15,000$ from selling your Bionicle collection that fast.

 

Thanks guys, and to "a vox in a box" I don't mean to sound like I'm bragging, I was just advertising my B/S/T topic. I didn't for sure have it secured yet so I was doing everything I could to get it.

You can tell it's mine because that is my solid gold hau and the display in the picture, but if you don't believe me, you will soon enough, this us just the teaser topic after all.

Mc

 

You have been bragging about it, everywhere you could in fact :glare: . Also the gold Hau really means nothing to me, even if it is another one time only thing, you could always have made your own, or photo shopped it in !!!

 

This really turns me off, what is an 20 year old doing buying a mask for $15,000? You would think that someone that old would spend their money more wisely.

This really turns me off, what is an 20 year old doing buying a mask for $15,000? You would think that someone that old would spend their money more wisely.

Well, like i said, you'll believe it is me and that i really own it once you see my video, and if you don't then that is fine as well. You can't replicate something like that, not just for the mask, but for the documents, the cases, and the history. I got my SGH from a guy named Phillip, who got it from Kelly, the original BZP Creator and editor. the PA has all the correct items to come with it as well, and like i said, i didn't mean to brag about my getting the PA, i was just trying to advertise my Topic so that people would be more interested in helping out my cause, and getting some of the Bionicle Items that they wanted as well, i saw it as beneficial to both parties.

 

Also about the 15K and my age, Not all 15K came from Selling my Bionicle collection. I got some money from my Tax Return, setting aside some spare funds, and selling other Non-Bionicle related items i had no use for any longer. I am already doing almost everything i want to do with my life currently, I love Teaching Parkour and Freerunning, my Current job as an Auto Glass tech isn't bad, But I'm working towards just teaching full time, and besides, I got a good amount of money from selling my collection to help fund this project, luckily for the both of us, It's my money and i wanted it bad enough that i was willing to pay the price for it. If you think it was a bad decision, that is completely fine, and it is your opinion, but i don't think you should be judging me for my decisions when you know nothing of my personal life or the way i view my goals. Please don't take offense or get mad, it is just my opinion as well :)

 

But like i said, after my video is done and uploaded. you will see i have provided the correct information proving that i am the owner of the real and official Platinum Avohkii and the Solid Gold Hau, and if the video isn't enough, then you'll just have to come see my Bionicle Gallery in a few years to believe me! :)

 

Thanks again guys! I couldn't have done it without you!

MC

 

PS: In the article where it says the "of the character Avohkii" The write of the article asked me what the item was officially called, i told him "The Bionicle Platinum Kanohi Avohkii, The Mask Of Light" So yeah, but on the plus side, i will be posting pictures with everything I got along with some other goodies as well, so Stay tuned!

You have been bragging about it, everywhere you could in fact :glare: . Also the gold Hau really means nothing to me, even if it is another one time only thing, you could always have made your own, or photo shopped it in !!!

 

This really turns me off, what is an 20 year old doing buying a mask for $15,000? You would think that someone that old would spend their money more wisely.

He doesn't really seem to be bragging. As far as doctoring the image goes, You'll find confirmation of possession in this article. Furthermore, your criticism of his use of $15,000 is inappropriate. The money is his to spend as he sees fit. He seems to be a rational individual. As such, to him, the marginal benefit of having the platinum Avohkii is worth the $15,000 he spent to get it. My Technology and Society teacher knew someone who bought a solid gold toilet seat. While I disagree with such a decision, I respect that it is his.


On a side note: MC, you should update your sig now.

Congrats on finally getting it MC

 

 

I must say i am not very impressed. Yes it is the ultimate collectors piece but i feel ever since you started collecting for it you have practically bragged about it which just puts me off.. However here is my question. How do we know you actually took that picture and just did not take it off of some various site and what not? Pictures can easily be faked and stolen. 

 

I think I have to agree with this guy, I don't think that you could have made 15,000$ from selling your Bionicle collection that fast.

You'd be surprised.

 

 

 

Thanks guys, and to "a vox in a box" I don't mean to sound like I'm bragging, I was just advertising my B/S/T topic. I didn't for sure have it secured yet so I was doing everything I could to get it.

You can tell it's mine because that is my solid gold hau and the display in the picture, but if you don't believe me, you will soon enough, this us just the teaser topic after all.

I should have put more in my post, you misunderstand me. 

 

I recognise that the $15,000 is his to spend as he sees fit, I just think it seems like a waste of money when he could be spending it on helping his family(if he has one yet :) ), or on other stuff.

 

Also I have to agree with you here:

I shouldn't have been so hasty in posting this.

Remind me to buy that off you in 20 years :P

On a serious note, congrats! I had figured the mask was forever stuck in the clutches of a LEGO employee or something, who stared at it for an hour before going to sleep.

Congratulations, man. This is pretty awesome, even to the extent that this is just like the time Takanuva battled Makuta in Mask of Light.

I'm glad its going to a true bionicle fan, an not someone who'd just, for instance, melt it down  for the metal or something.
