  1. They're similar, but the texture on the back is entirely different, and the four fingers on the Shapeways hand are connected via ball joints as opposed to hinges on the bootleg hand. The connector is also a ball instead of a socket. You can see some better images of them here: https://imgur.com/a/zZskk
  2. https://www.reddit.com/gallery/s0jyq0 CLICK LINK FOR IMAGES Hey! Apologies if this is the wrong place for this thread, I don't visit this site that often. I'm looking for one of five Bionicle-esque bootlegs that include a set of articulated hands, but I have scoured the internet high and low and I can barely find any mention of them. I have a few leads, but I'm stumped as to where to go from there. I started with google image searching pictures of the sets themselves, which eventually led me to some kind of news article that had a picture of one of the sets new in box. https://kknews.cc/game/m29pgb2.html From there, I found the brand name 818, and continued digging around on Google until I found a blog post about another set made by the same company under the same theme. Here I learned the original franchise was named King of Glory, and the company had made a handful of sets based on it. https://downtheblocks.blogspot.com/2017/12/818-82008-golden-king-of-glory-minifigs.html But no amount of searching for any combination of "818" or "king of glory" has yielded anywhere I can actually buy these sets. The best I got was this thing, which appears to be a King of Glory set by the same company, but in a completely different style. https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.16.392e770aidk15j&id=634419192524&ns=1&abbucket=16#detail I already own a pair of these hands, so I know someone made them, but I want to try and find a pair that are still on the sprue so that I can send them to someone who can resin cast or 3D print them and make them more readily available for people. I took some pictures of the hands when I first got them back in 2017- this also has some old Aliexpress links that are no longer valid, as well as the brand I originally purchased, YNYNOO: https://www.reddit.com/r/bioniclelego/comments/7eoy9l/bootleg_hands_review/ I did some more digging and it seems like these Iron Man sets have the fabled hand pieces, too, albeit with a towball instead of a standard ball joint: https://downtheblocks.blogspot.com/2019/12/818-82198-82200-various-iron-man-mech.html So yeah. I know it's a long shot considering these things are 5 years old at this point, but hopefully you guys can help a bit.
  3. Just sent the e-mail to Lego today, and took some pictures of the little guy before sealing him in a Legoland bag for safety. I also made a /r/bioniclelego post, but no one there seems to know much either... Fingers crossed!
  4. In the highly unlikely event you're seeing this, you should probably know that status updates and blogging in general isn't exactly my sort of thing. Basically, don't expect to see much here.

  5. Update: I'm home from the trip now, and I just got done cleaning all the dust off of the model, which I've named Goopy. I'm going to leave the glue on partially due to it being difficult to remove and partially due to the glue adding a bit of value and character. I'm also going to try and get in touch with Renate tomorrow and see if she knows any more about where Goopy came from. It really wasn't anything special, just a piece of string with the three masks attached to it using these. If you're really that interested in it, I can post a picture!
  6. Hi, I'm very, very new here! I had made an account a while back, but I haven't posted before. I was visiting Legoland California, and was wearing a homemade Bionicle necklace (nothing special, just a Hau Nuva, Kaukau Nuva, and a Miru Nuva on a string). I decided to walk through the Factory Tour even though I'd seen it quite a few times before, and noticed one of the machines was broken and two attendants were fixing it. One of the attendants, Renate, noticed my necklace and asked about it. After talking for a few minutes, she took me into a back area and showed me some behind-the-scenes things, and let me take home a few bricks from the machine on display, as well as a very dusty, old-looking Roporak with bits of glue on it. It was in a small bin she kept under a chair alongside two or three other Bionicles (I can't recall which ones- I'm pretty sure Vakama Hordika was there, as well as one other Visorak). She told me the Roporak- as well as the other Bionicles- used to be on display, but it had since been taken down and was going to be recycled. Now I'm in the hotel room, and I've been Googling around for the past hour trying to find a picture of it on display, and I can't seem to get anything. Do you guys know of any Visorak sets that were on display anywhere in Legoland California? Oh, and just in case this seems fishy- I took a few pictures of the Roporak in question in the hotel room. They're crummy phone pictures, but I think they show it clearly enough. https://imgur.com/a/ViXJq
