Okay, I have another conundrum. Can anybody in the US (lol) tell me why some of the Toa Hordika appear to have light gray canisters (much like the ones in Europe), while others have darker, more metallic-looking canisters (similar to gunmetal), which stand about a millimeter higher than the other type? Are the darker variants an earlier production run or is this a matter of different locales? I don't really know if any canisters were produced in the US in 2005. Thanks.
I'm trying to figure a few things out about the early 2004 sets as they came out in the US. Am I missing something or did none of Toa Metru come with mini CDs at all? Did they all just have Kanoka Club cards? And did any of them come with a mini booklet similar to the ones included in previous sets like the Rahkshi? From what I can tell, these types of booklets generally came in two versions: an international one without captions and a North American one with captions. I am 100% sure this applies to the following booklets, judging by what's listed on BrickLink as well as things I've personally seen: Early Bohrok booklet (with "LEGO Technic" printed on the cover) Regular Bohrok booklet Toa Nuva booklet Bohrok-Kal booklet Rahkshi booklet And now 2004 is when things get weird, as there are two international versions of the Metru Nui booklet (meaning without captions): one focusing on the Matoran sets and the other focusing on the Toa Metru sets. Of these two, only the former appears to be listed on BrickLink, while the other listed entry has an entirely different inventory number, implying that it's the North American edition of either the Matoran or Toa Metru booklet. What I'm trying to figure out is if there were in fact two North American booklets: one for the Matoran and one for the Toa Metru. I saw US eBay listings of Matoran, most of which come with a Rahkshi booklet, and fewer with a Metru Nui booklet. As for the Toa Metru, I haven't seen one with a booklet at all.
So I came across a Friends set and went "oh wowowowowow look at the pretty pieces," and thus decided to purchase it. HOWEVER, it appears that it is not currently available in the US or Canada - only the EU. Does anyone know if 41098-1: Emma's Tourist Kiosk will become available in the US, or is it an EU exclusive? Also, is this the case with other Friends sets? E: I haven't posted on BZP in ages, so if this is the wrong locale please move this topic gently.
