Bionicle set 8593 Makuta

Recommended Posts

Hello new people. I recently purchased bag #3 of set 8593 Makuta from eBay. I bought it since I saw in the official online instructions for the set that the section where you open bag #3 contained the pieces to build Makuta's arms, lance, and included his infamous mask of shadow;s. Well, I get the bag, open it, and find 2 Kanohi Avohkii, the pieces for the arms, lance, and no Kanohi Kraahkan? I also noticed that the bag did not contain any small technic pieces like axels and such. To anyone who bought/had this set, was the Kanohi Kraakhan not in the 3rd bag? or was it not included in neither bag 1 or 2 and just floating inside the box? 

 

cheers.

If sets are missing parts i'd ask the seller for a refund

It has been over a decade since I got my Makuta, so I don't really remember what the contents were like for a sealed box. If the bag you purchased was still sealed however, then I imagine the mask was probably loose in the box.

Ah-ha, here we go...

 

I just took a delve back into the BZPower reviews archive for you, which turns up the answers. All the pins and axels for the build were apparently in a separate small bag in addition to the main three (image here), while this photo of the parts unbagged shows the Kraahkan in the pile of pieces that came from the same bag as his torso construction (bag 1, I would guess?). So, yeah, not a mistake on the seller's part... just Lego doing weird things with the bags.

I don't remember how Makuta was. I remember for sure takua's mask was loose in the box. So it wouldn't surprise me if makuta's was too.

I have Bionicle set 10201 Takutanuva, a Toysrus exclusive. In it are four bags for Makuta, 1-3 and a small bag of pieces. I've opened the box but not the bags but I can see the contents through the back of the bag. Makuta's mask is in box 1.
