  1. Okay actually been wanting to post a topic like this so this is perfect I am in the same boat as @Max Nui, looking to get a 3D printer of my own. I know I am definitely going with resin as that gets much better quality. @Gresh21 that mask of creation has some exceptional quality and detail I have been asking around the community, particularly in some CAD/printing focused Discords, and they seem to all recommend resin. I think I am going to go with an Elegoo Saturn. As I understand it, the Saturn has great quality, but also can print much larger objects (I plan to do more than just Bionicle masks with it). I would love to hear other people's recommendations though! It's a big purchase so I want to make sure I am making the right decision Also for those of you who have a resin printer, did you buy your curing station as a kit? And if so could you provide a description (maybe even a link?)
  2. Inside the box - more masks of Psychometry! (@ Creative Mechanics )
  3. Hey there! I'm interested in a few items here as well as some of the items I've seen on your other post. I sent you a few PMs, you can also email me via humblematoran@gmail.com if you'd like. Hope to hear from you soon!
  4. This could fetch a decent amount from collectors (myself included). Do you happen to have a picture of it? I would definitely be interested, but would have to see what you are referencing
  5. Found this thread, which although may not solve all the mysteries, is at least some additional info
  6. @Turaga of Force thank you for the clarification. That variety pack is so interesting, especially containing 2 parts that are so rare and nothing else...what a strange thing from Lego haha. It honestly would make sense that the Brown Komau came in some sort of mask pack. Throughout my time collecting Bionicle I have rarely seen a White Huna, but a Brown Komau I have seen surface every now and again. Ah yes, this is what I was thinking of, and yes I do recall it being dark red. I think the dark blue noble Matatu may have even been in the same picture. This is now jogging my memory on a dark red komau...
  7. Somebody has been busy collecting. I have a few other Bionicle deals going on at the moment I'd like to finish up, but then I may be interested (still) in some of those kakama/kakama nuvas
  8. Man, I am in love with this artwork! Reminds me of being a small child and staring at my new Lego magazines of the next Bionicle wave, soaking up every last detail I could. You have captured that feeling perfectly I hope you plan to do all 6 locations and I cannot wait for more to come out. Nicely done!
  9. This is fascinating. Bionicle really did have such a large impact on the toy industry and really the culture for many kids (myself included) growing up in that era. Great find!
  10. Another mystery box in the mail... (@Creative Mechanics)
  11. I didn't, but I had to ask to quiet the inner child Yes it is sorry, should have been a bit more clear. I am speaking about the Gray Plastic Krana-Kal (GPKK), which were a prototype for the Vacuum Metal Krana-Kal (VMKK). GPKK were given out to proto-squad members in 2003 by mail. If you have grey/gray krana, the genuine GPKK are much lighter in color, and are not as 'rubbery' as regular krana. Some images (not mine) for reference (GPKK is on the top row, second from the left end)
  12. Yes exactly! When I hear Tohunga i picture MNOG and Mctoran, but when I hear Matoran i picture the metrutoran and voyatoran etc
  13. This topic gives me so much happiness to read, that there are still others who care and need answers about these things haha I personally think it is probably a scale-back like you had said @Xboxtravis, where Lego had originally planned to release more. They were struggling financially at the time, so maybe they thought they had bitten off too much and dialed back on the kanohi production to save costs. I also think the miscommunication theory between the story and production teams has some validity, however Bob Thompson has a strong reputation of being on top of this stuff, especially when it came to this theme, which makes me a little hesitant on that idea. Of course, these are all just speculations. Same here. I have never heard of this but if it is true my inner child will go crazy haha Just to clarify - Lego advertised 8525 as having 73 possible kanohi & 8530 as having 88 possible kanohi? Or they advertised them as having 73 each? Or something else? Very confused matoran over here. Do you happen to have any more info on this? I somehow have never heard of this and am very curious. This is incredible. Right up there with the Platinum Avohkii almost being melted down. now that I think of it, I have not seen a bubble Kaukau that wasn't light blue. I will keep an eye out @Turaga of Force thank you for the pictures as well! Very cool stuff. If I recall correctly there is an even more rare red huna in existance
  14. Very impressive work! So cool to see them all displayed in the same place. How long did it take you?! Also, do you have a master list of sorts that you work off of? I've been working on my own comic collection lately, and while I don't have as many as you yet I'm steadily growing *leans on edge of seat*
  15. Which variant, if I may ask? Also, I know this might be a long shot, but do you happen to have any of the GPKK? They were given out to proto-squad members back in the day
