Hi 

 

I'm new to this forum. Hope is OK that i'm posting this here.

 

I recently found these in a large Bionicle lot. So i hope you can help determing the value, or if it's going to recycling.

 

yellow mask = texture looks weird, and no part number

green arm = The plastic is softer than those with part number.

Grey face = no part number, and forehead and buttom looks different from the original

Most of the masks in the second batch can easily be looked up on Bricklink, as can the head.

 

The yellow mask and green arm, however, aren't familiar to me. It's hard to tell the plastic quality from the photos, but I'd say they're either misprints, prototype parts, or third-party 3D prints or molds. If one of the former, then there's no easy way to determine their value. If the latter, then it's likely that they're not worth much at all. But again, it's hard to tell. The edges of the molding on the yellow Huna look a bit off from the original, namely in the mouth peg wich should have thick walls and a smaller hole in the center. Just going by that one detail, I'd say it most likely fits into the "prototype parts" category, or it's a deliberate modification to the mold by a third-party to differentiate their mold from the original.

I'm holding one of the heads in my hand right now. How is that one different from the BL listing?

Oh, weird. 

Yeah, minor differences like that make it hard to differentiate between prototype parts and third-party copies.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't prototypes still have serial numbers? They're just not the standard part numbers. The only prototypes I've seen images of are the prototype yellow ruru, the prototype mata masks, and prototype transblue ruru. All of those all had very distinctive numbers on the front of the mask. I would guess the huna and green arm around third party pieces. Even if they are third party, I know some would interested in the green arm for mata nui online game matoran mocs. Some might be interested in the yellow huna for similar reasons. I've heard of the all black kanoka, but don't know enough about it to know what it's worth.

This is mostly true. We've seen other prototype parts that didn't have obvious serial numbers on them. Usually, the color was different or the plastic quality was different to signify them not being the final product. The odd molding of these parts is what's throwing me off. They're close to the official part, but at the same time, their differences seem so uniform that I'd assume they 1) came from a faulty batch, which could result in the color being different for the masks and arm, or 2) they're mass-produced third-party items that managed to sneak their way into someone's collection.

If what you have is, in fact, a prototype yellow huna, this is the information Letagi compiled about the mask in the Official Rare & Promotional Collectibles Topic:

 

Yellow Huna - $X00+ (frontback)

This mask was probably a prototype. Only one is known to exist. It is owned by BZP member KayTee.

The yellow Huna has never been sold and cannot be given a specific value, but it would likely sell for higher than the white Huna or brown Komau since it’s thought to be one-of-a-kind.

 

It may be worth trying to get in contact with KayTee to see if what the two of you have is the same thing.I would agree with The 1st Shadow that it's going to be difficult to put a price on prototypes that have never been sold before, but I'm sure there are people here that would be interested.

 

Let me know if you decide to sell.

Be that the case, that record was based on information we had way back when. Knowing there are more of them in the world would bring their presumed value down by a hefty margin. What intrigues me most, if they are prototypes, is how many of them there are. I'd understand one or two, as true prototypes are hard to come by anyway, but as many as you have there is what made me consider they might be fakes.

Honestly, I was thinking the same thing. 10 identical prototypes appearing in the exact same lot seems fishy to me. Personally I don't buy that they're prototypes, but rather some little known bootleg from 2001. I'm sure some people would still be willing to buy them on the off chance they are prototypes though.

Based on the Pics you sent me, they look just like the prototype huna from my Prototype Turaga vakama set. Minus the color of course

Maybe they are prototypes, bootlegs or even fake, I dont know. But if mine are fake/bootleg, then all your "prototypes" could be fake/bootleg. In fact, I had sorted them all out and "marked" to throw them away, because i thought they maybe was fake. But what i have learned from buying/selling Lego, is that you should always research first, and then i found this forum. 

 

But these "prototypes" were part of a trade, with all the bionicle parts that are currently for sale in my Bricklink store. I still need to sort some new bags, where I know that there is a minimum of 20 new Infected Hau.

 

All the bags on the floor contains each 2 infected Hau - https://imgur.com/a/go2JBlk

 

And what i can see in on this forum, some of you know Lego Galidor Makarr. A never released set, and hart to find actually pictures of. Here is a picture, from when i owned it https://imgur.com/a/WmHMY9H

Well I know my Vakama set is a genuine prototype, as I bought it from someone who had gotten it directly from Lego themselves. And the mold mill markings in the images you posted of your Huna's match those of the Huna I have. The offer I PM'ed you still stands btw if you are interested.

Avid collector, but hit a financial wall recently, would love to negotiate a price or a trade for one!

As to what I've heard, the yellow huna was a prototype, along side many others, glad to see it rise above "one existing" to make it slightly more realistic to get a hold of for collectors, now if only those transparent blue noble Kanohi Rau would show up.. And good luck!
