Where Did Those Vacuum Metal Krana Come From?

Back in June they showed up out of nowhere in Proto Squad mailings. The VMKK (aka PSKK) were labeled as misprints on the proto squad sheet, and were later distributed on the Unleashed tour vans. But nobody really knows where they came from -- why would so many misprints just appear like that for no reason? Answer below.
The answer is quite simple, really. According to an anonymous LEGO source, they were originally going to be the WMKKs. The VMKK (PSKK) were going to be the krana inserted inside Kal sets instead of metal.
However, as they were being produced, something made production stop -- the clock. They needed to get the special Krana into Kal sets, and the VMKKs just weren't done.
Therefore, the WMKKs and SSKKs were commissioned and were placed into the Kal sets, while the VMKKs produced were simply discarded until June when proto squad members received them as "misprints."
More than likely, less than 5000 VMKKs have been produced, making them more rare than Euro Kanohi misprints and just about any other Bionicle collectable.
BZPower is currently giving away some of these rare Krana as part of our month-long giveaway. If you would like a shot at winning one, click here to enter!
