Hello BZPower!My name is EqualsN, and I have had a long history with Bionicle. Since I first found out about it when I was 10, and now over 10 years later... It's no exaggeration to say Bionicle has been a big part of my life!Since 2001 I've been collecting every set I could, until around the end of 2007 when I could no longer afford it. And I'm proud to say that--excluding playsets and misc. extras-- I've just about gathered a complete collection of sets from 2001-2007! I would have loved to go hunting online to complete the entire line from 2001-2010, but sadly I can't carry on this quest any longer.I have a new dream now... and in order to reach for our dreams sometimes we have to make sacrifices. I never would have parted with my collection, if I could help it. But I think... if I'm giving it up in exchange for this one wish, it is worth it to me.It's like saying goodbye to my childhood. It's hard to do it, but deep down I know it's the right timing. Time to let the past go and see what the future has in store. Besides, Bionicle will always be in my heart! So, with that I ask you to please give these sets a good new home! I would love nothing more than to make someone out there just as happy as I was when I got these sets all those years ago!---About MeI've been a member of BZPower since nearly the beginning! I've followed the site since the very first BBC! I've never been one to participate in communities very well, but I've always loved this site and of all the places to offer my sets, what better place than here?I've assembled the sets and made sure I had all the pieces! I busted out my box full of instruction manuals and dusted off the containers. I even have disassembled boxes for the large sets, upon request. This is as complete a set as I can get it!At first I considered using another means to facilitate selling such as ebay, but ebay has not been kind to me lately. It's fees are especially outrageous.I realize that I am basically a stranger here on BZPower. I don't have many references, but what little references I have on ebay might count for something.You can view my ebay profile here: http://myworld.ebay.com/equalsnAll my pictures include my username. I ship everything as described, and as quickly as possible in the most effective packaging. Bid with confidence!--AUCTION TERMS- Auction duration: Thursday, September 27 2012, Time of this post through Sunday, September 30 2012, 11:59PM PDT- Payment through Paypal preferred. I require payment to clear BEFORE shipping!- Shipping costs will be paid by buyer and determined based on buyer location and package weight.Posted ImageMy pride and joy! RAHI and TURAGA shown are NOT FOR SALE!The collection is split up into YEARS.You bid on the year you're interested in. Bid on as many years as you like.I WILL NOT sell the sets individually!Bid in increments of $5 at least please!- All sets are 100% COMPLETE and include all pieces, unless otherwise noted by a star.*- INSTRUCTION MANUALS included for all sets. (Condition varies from good to fair.)- ORIGINAL PACKAGING included for SMALL and MEDIUM sets. (Condition varies from good to poor.)- ORIGINAL PACKAGING for LARGE sets are available ON REQUEST for most sets, but are usually disassembled/flattened. I will not include these unless you ask for it! They complicate the packaging process and increase shipping costs.YEAR 2001Posted ImageALL 6 Toa MataStarting Bid: $658531 Pohatu8532 Onua8533 Gali8534 Tahu8535 Lewa8536 Kopaka(These are my spare Toa Mata.

Do you have any rare collectibles that you are selling individually by any chance? Like a VMKK or anything of the sort?- :t::l::h:
  • 0

Do you happen to own a Gray Plastic Krana-Kal (GPKK)?

If so, please check out my topic to see if you have one I need.

I am offering $100 USD or a White Metal Krana-Kal (WMKK) to either anyone who can either give me a lead to a GPKK that works out or to whoever owns one that I need and sells it to me directly.

@ Refy L. That's a good question. I'm in the US and I don't have a problem shipping internationally, but buyer pays shipping. And I can expect shipping costs will be enormous with the size and weight of the packages.@ Toa Lhikan Hordika Sadly no, I don't have a VMKK or other rare Krana. Feel free to PM me if you are interested in rare Kanohi. I am mainly trying to sell my COLLECTION right now though.

Whoa. My brain hurt thinking about that.

Shame Since I don't think your going to get the bids you want. I'd easily pay $40 US for all 6 bohrok va and the exo toa. Oh well good luck anyways

Do you think so? It depends on what it's worth to you. I know they're worth a lot to me!

It's alright. If I can't sell them all at once I would feel too much shame selling them at all. I'd rather have them leave together than watch the collection slowly disappear. :dontgetit: At least that's how I feel.If I can't get at least the minimum bid, I wouldn't be happy parting with them.

It's his collection, so theirs sentimental value to him. If you think its worth the money than place a bid, honestly EqualsN I'd put em' up for auction on ebay and wait it out. More protection and shipping it in bulk would provide a bonus. Some of them are a bit pricey though.

I was disappointed to find out that ebay has a cap on how much you can sell in a month, in addition to it's outrageous fees. (I'd have to sell a year worth of Bionicle just to make up for it's fees)A new seller like me would only be able to make $500 a month, and that is just not going to work for my needs and the time frame I need to sell these in.I did a lot of researching on how much the individual sets go for on ebay long before this post, and that is what I based the value off of. The bidding prices you see are actually a lot lower than that! After estimating the value I reduced each year by a set amount.I figured less than $300 for one full year of Bionicle in good condition and 100% complete is affordable. But maybe I'm overestimating BZP's population/budget. :closedeyes:
