Is there any chance that it's for sale or will be any time soon? I'd be willing to offer $2000 right now.- :t::l::h:

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.

First off, welcome to BZPower! I hope you enjoy your stay. :)Wow, this is really cool! I was wondering if we would eventually hear from the person who owns it in the future. :P A (very) late congratulations to you on winning it. :D

Welcome to BZPower! I've always admired the Platinum Avohkii, and I still do nowadays. And that says a lot because I've lost a lot of interest in Bionicle. I have to say though, I've never seen the back of it. Is it fully compatible with LEGO with an axle and all, and would you mind adding a picture of the back?

Have you gone to a jeweler or something? They might be able to give a price on how much that amount of platinum is worth at the exact moment. You could even add more to the price from there for it being collector's item. :)

I have some questions!Was winning it really as simple as just calling a phone number? Did it come in a case? With a certificate of authenticity? What else was in the prize pack that you won? Did you ever talk to LEGO about the mask? How did you come across BZPower? What made you decide to sell the mask now?

I, for some reason, don't quite believe this. I mean, this is something bigger than the 24K Golden Haus and the White Hunas put together. And it's almost certain that our friend Chase would have known about this site and posted in it a long time ago. He even has a three-year Avolkii (I believe you get it after three years, correct me if I'm wrong).So did Chase just stick the Holy Grail of BIONICLE in a closet or Storage locker in California for ten years and suddenly remember that he had it after seeing this thread? (Google is a wonder when you look up "Platinum Avolkii") I mean, that seems to be the only explanation.I dunno. What took you so long in coming out and telling us that you have such a relic, Chase?

The Precious! Smeagle must has it! He must!

"What... Did you sayyy???"I believe that's pronounced Sméagol. Just saying. One Mask to rule them all and all that.

Look, I'm not trying to put Chase down. I just find it curious.I would say "Pics or it didn't happen", but we do have pictures. And when I searched up "Platinum Avolkii", nothing came up. Maybe Chase should take another picture and have a little nametag he wrote. You know, so that we have 100% proof that this is legit.

Maybe they meant Smeargle. But why would a Smeargle want a metal mask? :POn topic, it's pretty amazing that even a few years after Bionicle's end, the recipients of some of these rare masks are finding their way here to give us a glimpse of these parts of Bionicle history.

Keep looking. An easy google search would show that Chase won the Platinum Avohkii, and there is at least one image of him with it.

Why oh why is there discussion of the correct spelling of Smeagol (yes I know I left off the mark on the E)...Anyway, I in no way have the funds to try to buy this, but if this is indeed for real, I'm highly relieved that this unique piece isn't actually lost forever. When things like the Platinum Avohkii are lost, it bothers me. :P~:b::i::m_o::m::a::n::c::e::r:~

He's been here for 3 years. I have something else to say. Would this mask work on a regular Takanuva set, or would it get too top-heavy and fall over?

It's a little hard to tell if this the real deal from the quality of the pic, as a bit of silver spray paint could get pretty much the same affect. But the fact that the owner is thinking of selling it kind of makes me assume that it is real, as selling a fake platinum Avohkii and getting away with it sounds like a challenge.

So I guess congrats to Chase for owning this. I must say I'm pretty jealous, although I prefer the gold Hau myself.
