Help finding information

Recommended Posts

So I was digging through my old Bionicle bin and came across this little gem. It's plastic with a vacuum metal finish. I've been trying to find information on it and see if it's worth trying to sell or not. If anyone can give me any information, I would very much appreciate it!

If it's vacuum metal as you described, then you have one of the aptly named Vacuum Metal Krana-Kal (VMKK). According to the Official Rare & Promotional Collectibles Topic over in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum, a VMKK can be worth upwards of $200.
 
Were you a Proto Squad member by any chance? I'd be curious as to where you got it.

I'm not gonna lie, I don't remember where I got it (though the term "Proto Squad" rings all kinds of bells in my head). I know I've had it a long time, and I've made a point to keep the thing from getting lost. I figure this is the time to try and sell it off, since it's just sitting in a baggie in a bin currently, instead of being displayed in a collection.

If you did happen to get it from the Proto Squad, perhaps you might also happen to recall receiving another Krana in solid gray hard plastic, pre-vacuum metalization (as the two were reportedly given out together). Those are known as Grey Plastic Krana-Kal (GPKK), and due to their rarity they fetch a much greater price on the aftermarket that you could cash in on.

 

The other place the VMKK were given out was from the 2003 Unleashed Tour van.

I suspect then that I got it from the van, because as far as I remember I never got the gray one.

If you're currently a Bionicle or LEGO enthusiast, then I strongly recommend you don't sell it. A valuable item can be very hard to regain, while money is generally easy to.

I am a huge fan of Bionicle, however the collection aspect has been largely lost on me in recent times. I used to have a near complete collection of masks and krana/kraata back in the day, but due to moves and real llfe, that is no longer the case. Anyway. The information I sought has been given successfully. Thanks very much!

Congrats, upon your random search through old bionicle parts, you found that you happened to own one of the most rare and saught-after parts of bionicle history.

In the name of all that is good, do yourself a favor and do not sell it. Put it on prominant display, this is an awesome thing to own.

The Toa Mata were legends in the Matoran Universe long before they ever did anything. They must have been the subject of legends and stories.


 


Gen2 is the story.


 


~~Boom. Handled.~~

Too late, he said he put it on eBay.

Great find man. Just know its a really awesome collectors item, so don't sell it unless you are sure. But, know that if you do sell it, whoever buys it will love it
