You could strip the Aluminum off a VMKK.  I made some light grey Haus by treating Chrome Haus with XXXX.  The first was too concentrated and made the plastic yellowish but the second worked better.

 

If you want, I have an idea that would use different chemistry.  You could practice it on some other, cheaper, LEGO parts to see if it affects the plastic.  ??  Didn't think so.

 

Just saying... if someone sells you a discolored one it could be an altered VMKK

Thought I would give this topic a bump before it dies since the Bionicle hype is increasing now that it's confirmed.  Hopefully some older fans will be drawn back to BZP and may see this.

I have to admit this is tempting, but I don't know if I could do that in good conscience for a few reasons.

 

1) It would feel a bit like cheating by altering VMKK to make them GPKK (even if that's what they are beneath the aluminum).  Sure it would make for some good pictures, but it wouldn't be honest.

2) I don't think I could risk messing up on a VMKK and permanently ruining/destroying a valuable collectible.

3) I know you're hunting for GPKK as well and I'm wondering why you haven't done this already (I'm assuming here a little).

2) The risk can be made very low.

 

3&1) It would take ALL the fun out of it.  I would be OK with fakes as placeholders but it would be so much cheaper to buy a can of grey primer spray paint.  Or just put in grey rubber ones.  You see it all the time in museums.  The broken pot is reconstructed with plaster of an intentionally different color.  Placeholders change the emphasis from the voids to the collection you DO have.

 

It's 100% honest if you say you made it.  100% dishonest if you don't.

 

I really just posted to warn you that if you made the price too high that you might start getting fakes and to watch for discolored parts.

Sorry for not replying until now, but I appreciate the input.  I actually have been using Lehvak Va Krana as placeholders for the remaining three that I need.  I'll be sure to keep an eye out for fakes.  

 

For anyone reading this, check out the original post, I've decided that I'll part with some of my extra WMKK and possibly my extra SSKK (but for a hefty price).  Please let me know if you're interested.

Well, here's a bunch of listings on Bricklink that seemed to stand out.

 

Here's a Yo listed as the color being not applicable on Bricklink. Perhaps it's a GPKK?

http://www.bricklink...=0&itemID=10341

 

And this doesn't look much like a metallic silver Za Krana. Probably nothing special, but...

 

http://www.bricklink...67&itemID=10335

 

And again, here's a strangely out of place Xa Krana in the metallic silver section. Again, it's probably nothing but it's worth a shot, I suppose...

http://www.bricklink...67&itemID=10337

 

Yet again, an out of place Krana, this time a Ca, in the metallic silver section. This seller either has mislisted these 3 with the wrong pictures/category, or perhaps he actually has some GPKKs.

http://www.bricklink...67&itemID=10334

 

 

Ok, here's something that might actually have a good chance of being GPKK! A pearl white Krana Su? Pearl white? Sounds like the color of a GPKK! Or it could just be another mislisted Krana, seeing the picture, which may or may not be the default pic. But I think this one is definitely worth contacting the seller about.

http://www.bricklink...83&itemID=10340

 

Not sure if you've already seen this, but this guy definitely has some GPKK... it's only a matter or whether or not he wants to sell them.

http://www.maskofdes...d_Huh_43955.asp

 

Also, if you're really desperate, you could always try asking every one of the sellers on Bricklink in the "pearl light gray" & "pearl very light grey" categories on Bricklink. :P

Thanks for checking those out for me!  Unfortunately, I don't think any of the Bricklink listings are GPKK though.

 

1) The first link, while not having a color description is way too cheap for it to be a GPKK, unless the seller is completely unaware of it's value.  Also, while there's a few collectors outside of the US who have GPKK, they were all originally given away in the US and I'm not aware of them having been officially distributed elsewhere.

 

2) Also unlikely since it's from Germany and the cost is so low.  Metallic silver Krana are most likely the Kohrak-Kal's Krana.  I've been told by different Bricklink sellers to not trust the stock image attached to their listings because the website messes them up a lot.

 

3) Also a Kohrak-Kal Krana.

 

4) Pearl white and metallic silver are the same thing when it comes to Bricklink Krana listings.

 

5) I've tried contacting that guy before and I've heard that he'll only sell his Krana collection if the price paid is enough to pay off his mortgage.  Unless he's only got a couple thousand dollars left on his mortgage, I can't imagine that I have enough money to buy them from him. :P

 

I'd like to think that I'm not desperate, but I do frequently check Bricklink listings to see if I can find any GPKK on there.  The first GPKK I owned (A Yo) was found on Bricklink, but I later sold it to Roger CT since it was the only GPKK he still needed to have a full set of 8 and at the time I wasn't seeking to obtain a full set of them myself.  

 

Once again, thanks for checking.  My offer still stands for anyone who is able to help me find a GPKK, whether it's from another Forum, Bricklink, eBay or whatever.  If you help me, I'll make sure you're rewarded.
