Mask Revealed for Battle for the Gold Mask

Recommended Posts

Gold Skull Spider Mask

There has been much speculation over which gold mask will be the ultimate prize in the recently announced Battle for the Gold Mask multi-site contest. Today the LEGO Bionicle Facebook page revealed that it will be an eighth mask not shown at NYCC: A 14-carat gold Skull Spider mask! Be sure to check out the contest on BZPower and ReBrick for all the details on how to enter and win one yourself!

I wonder of you could remove the mask from the stand (not that you would want to :P) and use it for a MOC?

I wouldn't have thought that the Skull Spider would get a gold mask as well. It is a really cool mask.

 

Good luck to everyone entering the contest to win this!

Makes perfect sense. What better price for a contest of villains than a golden villain mask?

I'd unlink the facebook page if I were you... there's already a bunch of people raging and insulting BZPower.

I only saw one comment, but then again, I'm on mobile so they may not be showing up. What I don't get is why people blindly hate this site?

Well, judging by one comment, they were definitely inspired by the people who said BZPower was almost singlehandedly responsible for Bionicle's downfall

 

(instead of, you know, a story so complicated your average fan doesn't even know half of what was going on)

So what were the masks revealed at NYCC? I figured they were the six Okoto masks and the skull spider mask. Was it the Protector mask?

 

The masks at NYCC were the six Toa masks and the Mask of Creation. You know, the one that they've been showing everywhere.

I wouldn't care about the haters, LEGO has no reason to listen to them because they know what they find in us. Yes, BZPower has had some years where the relationship between staff and members was not stellar, among other issues, and BZPower still has its share of problems but the staff and the entire site have matured a lot over time. Clearly those guys who keep hating against our site haven't been here in a long time and frankly most of the "criticisms" BZPower has faced over the years are just ridiculous beyond belief - including the strange assumption that BZPower had an impact on the fandom large enough to affect BIONICLE's sales in any measurable and relevant way. It's not too hard to overestimate one's influence and I'm not really blaming them for that, but when they go from that to pretending BZPower is, for a wrong reason, responsible for the cancellation of BIONICLE, then that's pretty crazy. When people start out with arguments like that, I wouldn't even bother arguing with them, just move on.

 

Anyway, good to know which mask my brother and I will win. ;)

This actually makes a lot more sense than someone receiving a random mask from one of the Toa. And the gold skull spider mask looks great! Quite the prize to be offered.

Well, I'm sure most of us were expecting the golden MoCr, but this may make more sense.

 

Also I can't be the only one who loves the stands.

They're so.... detailed.

 

Maybe the rest of the masks and the are for other contests? Like, a contest where you build a toa/defender/creature using pieces from an element-specific toa & defender?

I would assume they will find other ways to distribute the other masks.

It would be incredible if they topped the canisters with those stands. Those days are long gone though.

Well considering the claims they're making, I'd take it with a grain of salt. Maybe a whole shaker. Might even have to take a trip to your nearest salt mine for the full effect :P

 

I'm really excited for this, that mask looks absolutely stunning, especially with that stand. Never would've guessed it'd be a mask we hadn't seen before! (in gold, I mean) :D

I think that's probably a safe assumption.

Well... at least the slim, slim hope remains that I'll have a chance at snagging that golden Gali Mask....

I had a feeling this would be the eighth. :)

 

It as the prize for this contest makes a lot of sense, given its theme. Definitely will be a very cool item to own.

 

(Also those pedestals are seriously awesome.)

I wish they would do art or story contests for the other masks. Probably not going to happen, though - they will probably just go through different building contests. 

 

Although the Emmet Awards do bring me hope that they might actually do that. :)

My guess is they won't all be building contests. That would be pretty boring.

These are Lego-sponsored contests on websites, B6. It's my understanding that while most Lego fansites focus on building, few focus/have forums for fanfiction stories or art. Plus IIRC Lego has never done either. It would be unprecedented. 

 

They might do a video contest like the Emmet Awards though. :shrugs:

That's glorious. That spider-mask looks really cool. And that stand!

 

Buuuut alas, I am kind of glad it happened to be this mask of the 8 that were shown. It's definitely my least favourite, so I feel less depressed that I won't be able to win this contest now. The Mask of Creation though, that would have me fired up!

Independent of the fact that I bet Black Six already knows at least part of LEGO's plans, I do actually expect the other contests to be about other creative disciplines. Remember the website contest in 2001 where the Golden Hau could be won? Actually, I would love it if they made such a contest again. Of course, building is an obvious choice for a LEGO contest, but LEGO has shown in the past that they can host other types of contests as well. I would expect a writing contest, too and probably drawing as well, though I don't recall seeing that from LEGO yet.

There was a contest in 2001 where you had to create a website. BZPower administrator Binkmeister won the contest and actually became a webmaster at LEGO a few years later.

Seems fairly anti-climactic. I'd much rather have the Mask of Creation than this wierd looking spider one... But as I won't be winning any of them I think I'll survive :D

I don't know that there will be writing or drawing contests specifically, but I know of no plans to do another building contest in conjunction with the AFOL and TFOL communities. There's seven more masks though, so they're going to have to come up with other ways to give them out.

Which would make more sense—to give away the shiny, special Mask of Creation that appears in promotional material but isn't even in any sets yet FIRST, or to save it for LAST? Promotions like this need buildup if they hope to keep people engaged throughout, so starting with the Skull Spider mask (which comes in plastic in every single set next year) seems more logical than starting with the ultimate prize.

I was really hoping the gold mask would be the mask of creation (that thing is beautiful), but a skull spider mask?  Still pretty awesome.

We have yet to see the mask of creation in molded plastic, right?  There's no pictures I've been missing from NYCC?

Nope, but it's almost certain that it will be appearing in sets eventually. Perhaps in the summer sets...
