Pohatu: Uniter of Stone

Something I found way back in December...

Recommended Posts

Back in December, I was doing some Christmas shopping at a Boscov's and I naturally wandered over to the Lego section, admiring their set selection. However, there was something... out of place, or rather out of time. I snapped a picture with my 3DS.pohatu1.jpeg

 

 

Yup, It's an ad for Lego.com from the early 2000s. Notice anything special about it?

That's right, it's Pohatu! Boscov's did have BIONICLE, but in the form of a picture from 2001! I went back a couple of days ago, and they still had the ad up. There were no BIONICLE 2015 sets still, but this is good enough for me. 

 

Thoughts?


I HATE SCORPIOS

I think that was just your reflection.

 

Edit: That Technic set on the top-right, the yellow guy with the hat...I remember seeing that in instruction manuals/magazines, such nostalgia.

I think that the bigger news here is that gen2 Pohatu owns a 3DS. Bionicle confirmed for SSB7! :P

 

In all seriousness, that is pretty cool.

Elemental Rahi in Gen2, anyone? A write-up for an initial video for a G2 plot

 

I really wish everyone would stop trying to play join the dots with Gen 1 and Gen 2 though,it seems there's a couple new threads everyday and often they're duplicates of already existing conversations! Or simply parallel them with a slightly new 'twist'! Gen 2 is NEW, it is NOT Gen 1 and it is NOT a continuation. Outside of the characters we already have I personally don't want to see ANY old characters return. I think it will cheapen the whole experience to those of us familiar with the original line...

That yellow guy was one of the first Mindstorms official robot models. That's a pretty neat little picture. Odd that it's still there after 15 years. :P

Cool! But that's a strange pose to put Pohatu in... maybe he's breakdancing.

 

It's always really fun when you find something "out of time" in plain sight.

 

I once found the Bionicle sticker book in a Barnes and Noble in 2010. That was really neat!

I think that's his kicking pose, they just removed his rock. :P

I think I might have that dinosuar action figure. I haven't seen it in a while though.

 

Regardless, I never thought I'd see an ad with both 01 Pohatu and a dinosuar on it. :P


Everyone is one choice away from being the bad guy in another person's story.

That's a really good find. Strange how Boscov's wouldn't take it down after fourteen years...

 

And I thought finding XT4 at my local Toyworld was strange...

Nice. 

Remember when people were getting all excited because of a quick half a second image of the Toa appeared in the LEGO Movie? 

 

I don't remember anyone getting very excited, per se, I remember one guy felt it was offensive that Bionicle wasn't there for more than a second.
