Hey everyone! So basically, i have been a bionicle fan since 2005, and collected most of the titans till the end. I have a younger brother who is basically in love with bionicle, and he wants a set that is almost impossible to find for a reasonable price, Toa Mata Nui 8998, and his birthday is almost coming, so me and my mom are trying to find a way to get him the set!

I want anyone to help me with this, because on websites like ebay, amazon and bricklink, they ask for your soul, i couldnt find anything cheaper than 250 US dollars!

Overall, i would like anyone to tell me a place to get this set for around 80 dollars max. I can shop online, so any kind of help is appretiated, cause i really need to get this set. Any of you guys willing to sell me around that price, i would love to have it!

Thank you already...

$250 is about reasonable. you will probably have to go for a second hand one, otherwise, unless you want to spend more,  you're out of luck. sorry!

You can get a clone brand one on eBay for $59.99 usd. It is Decool brand, which is higher quality. Other than that, sorry, I don't know!

Im posting a post I posted on a different thread before:

"Thought I would put this here: http://www.ebay.com/...=item3f34cfd81d

It is a knockoff and if you guys wants a review on this knockoff, here you go: http://www.bzpower.c...a-nui-knockoff/

:)

While I dont encourage the purchasing of LEGO knockoffs, to me, it looks like a pretty good deal considering the majority of Toa Mata Nui sets are usually $100+, in used condition. Also the pieces that are missing from this knock off (Mahri Jallers Sword) are easily obtainable  :)"

Hope this helped!

I found several cheaper ones at Amazon and eBay, but nothing under $80, or $100 for that matter. Sorry.

I suggest you wait around to be honest. Usually they pop up on BZPower here and there. I remember I waited a bit and found one from a user for 42 USD :D

I would also suggest searching through the BST archive. Maybe some member didn't sell one and still has it, and if you PM them, they may be willing to sell.

You could also part out the set from Bricklink if you're desperate.

Not sure if you've seen this or not:

 

http://www.ebay.com/...=item4ad58f07c5

 

I know it's about $60 above your price range, but that's the cheapest one available on eBay.

Do you happen to own a Gray Plastic Krana-Kal (GPKK)?

If so, please check out my topic to see if you have one I need.

I am offering $100 USD or a White Metal Krana-Kal (WMKK) to either anyone who can either give me a lead to a GPKK that works out or to whoever owns one that I need and sells it to me directly.

I really don't think he will want a cheap chinese knockoff. It's not higher quality by the way, knockoffs have cheap low quality plastic. Keep looking for the real deal, don't buy the fake one.

From what I've heard, this set is actually made from good quality plastic.

As long as there is one bionicle fan out there there is still hope for bionicle to return. Keep faith. Bionicle is amazing.

Actually Toa Chronix, Decool brand clone items are some of the highest quality knockoffs available.

Indeed, but still much lower quality than real LEGO.

The OP is inactive I believe. If you want to discuss Bionicle knockoffs,, I suggest you do it in Bionicle discussion, not buy\sell\trade.
