When I go on vacation in Texas, I usually bring my Rahi, my Mata, And my Bohrok. Do you bring BIONICLE sets on vacation?

I still do. But it's mostly my MOCs now, since all my Bionicle sets have been transformed into MOCs.

 

Though I did lose an Avak set when I went on vacation at a resort.

No I might lose them, or some of their parts. I have brought Bionicle books with me when we go on trips, mainly to read while were in the car.

Most of the time, but if I know (or figure) that I will get some during the trip, I may not.  It also depends if I am going to meet up with friends, because if so, then we may make a bionicle story and roleplay it out.

In 2006 I had a phase of taking some of the Inika on holiday.  Mostly I ended up buying sets when I get there though.

This is about BIONICLE sets/collectibles, so I made it in this forum. Oh and a few years ago, Thok's foot just VANISHED at the hotel. I never found it.

Yup. I could name lots of times. Remember going on vacation in Michigan, and I took my Toa Mahri Jaller and Matoro with. Why? Simply because we were going in Lake Michigan. I didn't lose a single piece, not even darts.HDXC2000 6.0

I used to, years ago. Onua Nuva would go with me everywhere, and often I'd buy a new set while on road trips with my dad. I remember getting both Nidhiki and Gadunka while on the road.

I've never brought a Lego set with me whenever I went on vacation. In fact, I never take them anywhere once I got them. That way there wouldn't be a chance for me to lose them.

So true, I almost lost a Bionicle set once but I forgot when that was.

 

The most recent event that I had taken my Bionicles on vacation, was in McAllen Texas, where I brought Gali Nuva and Tanma. This was about two to three years ago.

I don't believe I've ever taken a Bionicle on vacation, but I have brought one back - Onua Mistika was purchased before his U.S. release and assembled out of the U.S.A. before being brought there.

 

That kinda sounds fun though - bored in the hotel room, just yank out a Bionicle or two...

 

I don't wanna hijack your thread, but since this is kinda the same idea, what bionicle would you take for a vacation? This isn't the "IF you could only take one", just if you could take one for a couple days.

 

I'd take a Matoran. The others would take up too much space.

Exactly. I'm sitting in my hotel room right now with the Tarakava and the Boxor on BZP.

I used to, but not so much any more. That is, aside from the obvious vaction to Brickfair.

 

Now I mostly take system stuff with me. It's a lot easier to make room and pack for.

I tend to take some of my creations to my parents house. I live on my own but I go to my parents house every month to visit them.

 

Though when I was living with them. We went to my aunt's cabin for vacation and I took my Lewa mata and a very bad moc of an exo toa with me, While there I tried to combine the two. Ended up leaving half the moc at the cabin. Next year we went back and I was fortunate to find the parts I left there. I was really happy since a part I left there was a blunt shooter and It was the only one I had at the time.

Never. The risk of losing pieces or the sets themselves is too high.

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...

When I was younger I would bring them everywhere I go but leave them in the car. Now I don't want to risk losing them but I might bring them when I go camping and maybe take pictures.

I've bought a few bionicles while on vacation. (Every time I went to the UK, I'd always get ahold of the new bionicles before they hit the shelves in canada, which was fun. x3) This was way back when I was a kid, and I tended to avoid it after. I bought a Gahlok Va in Vancouver once and lost the purple krana. :(

I once brought all my 6 Hordika, 6 Piraka and 6 Inika (because that was my collection at the time) to vacation in late 06 to Peru, my parents country. After that I haven't really brought any on a vacation any more but I will do so in the future, just not an entire collection, I would probably choose Karzahni, my Toa Ignika MOC, Malum, or Ackar.

Usually if I bring any LEGO sets on vacation with me, they'll be ones I haven't built yet. For instance, when I went to family camp last summer, I brought Speeda Demon from LEGO Hero Factory, a set I had gotten during Brickfair the previous week.

Yes, in fact I opened Nuparu Inika on vacation despite getting it the previous day in my house.

 

But unfortunately half the parts broke, so my sets are forever...well, broken.

 

Which is why I don't bring them anywhere at all.
