Breakable Pieces

Recommended Posts

The 2007 lime-green pieces broke quite a bit. It annoyed me - I had to buy another Hahli Mahri, which I was going to give to a friend, but I had to use it because I never received my replacement pieces from LEGO. <_<


On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground

And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived

 

On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground

Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight

 

I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained

And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you

 

Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away

And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone

 

Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands

Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey

 

I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in

I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away

 

slipped away...

The lime green pieces from my 07 sets have cracks in them, but they haven't broken yet. (Probably beause I haven't taken the sets apart since I put them together.) Only one of my sets has had one of its Lego pieces brake, and that was one of the hind legs of one of my Visorak.


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

Hahli Mahri's wing joint did break on me, but that was it.

The 7M double ball cup, both before the 2008 remold (50898) and after the 2008 remold (61054) used to break quite often for me, starting in 2006. Prior to 2006, very few of my joints broke except for the occasional Bohrok foot.After the 2008 remold, a lot of parts became more brittle for me, including regular Y-joints. I'm not entirely sure why. The new Hero-Factory-style joints introduced starting in 2011 have never so much as fractured for me. Props to the designers who created them.In terms of non-joint BIONICLE pieces, I've never had any problems with breaking.

The 2008 joint remolds were terrible.

I loathed the 2007 lime-green upper-limb parts so much. I had to use some spare Metru gray parts and dark green parts to patch up Ehlek. Surprisingly, Hahli's pieces are still holding out.Ehlek was my favorite Barraki too ;_;

I have Glatorian and Phantoka/Mistika sitting on shelves in my bedroom. Some of them, If you just touch them to hard, a hand or such will fall of. My tarduk's joints have been totally destroyed. Its sad :(And I never really thought about the lime pieces being fragile, but now that you guys mention it, that is very true.

Everyone always seems to complain about the joint pieces, but I can honestly say they have not broken on me. Of course, I only ever put together the sets once and have yet to take them apart.My problem pieces were usually the tool pieces. In the case of Toa Onewa and Toa Nokama's, they would bend too easily. For others, the + attachment would wear out. Or applies friction would just make them look worn. But other than that, I haven't had any problem pieces.

Light-colored 2007 Y-joints broke a lot for me. Thankfully I don't use many of them anymore.

I've had recently the 3 and 2 length black and blue pins going. I would guess I've been more aggressive with my MOCing techniques, perhaps putting a little more strain on them. But that's most likely down to me, pieces that go without any help would have to be pretty much any parts in Ehlek. Seriously, those lime green joints were ridiculous. Then there's just a lot of ball joints from beyond there that just go. Plastic around that time was just stupidly brittle.

The 2007 lime green and the 2008-2010 ball joints are the only ones that break a lot. Also, the dark green Bohrok feet broke on me when I first tried to use them. They were second-hand, though.

The joints from 2008 as well as the joints on my Stronius.I used to chew on parts, so I have some damaged ones from that. I can't remember which was easier to break.Onua's claws seem to break more easily becasue they are thinner.

Hahli Mahri and Lessovik Lime Green.......My poor lessovik was never the same. Aswell, the 2008-2009 Pieces, which were supposedly stronger, broke a lot.-Star

It can't be said enough how horrible the lime green joints of 2007 were. Every single one of mine has broken at some point.Beyond those, I did have some minor problems with 2008 ball joints. From just sitting there. They cracked. Only on Takanuva though... I might have more, but I'm afraid to break them out and look.~|ET|~

I had many problems with the lime green pieces from Hahli Mahri and Ehlek.I also noticed several Metru Hands in my piece box that were broken, but I don't know from which set they came from.

I've never seen a Lego piece that could break an Alot. They're rather strong creatures.

Very true.

Practically every single one of those clawed feet from 2008 would break for me. Which is a real shame, because it was a pretty cool piece.

Same here. Even the 2010 dark-bluish-grey ones (from Nektann) have, I think, broken for me. :|

the wings that came with gorast bend too easily

Pretty much everything from Gorast breaks/bends too easily.

The socket pieces in 2008 seemed to be rather weak on my Kopaka Phantoka set, at least 2 of them. I've only had 1 somewhat broken from the years before. The rest are pegs and arms.
