Is there a picture of that GWP somewhere?
Thank you for providing the link.
I like what I'm seeing a lot, but ultimately I won't be getting the set (or ordering to get the GWP).
Had it been a Blacktron II set however, I would have placed an order for whatever in a heartbeat
Neat. Not as neat as the original though. I will probably buy the Tie Bomber plus a few Minecraft houses to get to $150.
It’s a neat GWP but I’m getting kind of tired of sets like this getting locked behind high paywalls. Lately any of the ones that are worthwhile are with purchases of $190-$250 in Canada.
Can’t really justify dropping a couple hundred dollars on my self a week or two after Christmas. Just seems like poor timing.
So the Bionicle GWP leaked as well. Thought this rumor was fake, but glad it wasn’t. I know a Bionicle revival is unlikely at best, but doing sets like this at a $10-$15 price point like the Marvel mechs would go over well I think.
Only two things I’m concerned about:
1. I’m surprised they locked it behind a “theme wall”, and unfortunately none of the themes I collect. Might just bite the bullet on the secondary, depending on how much that is.
2. I really hope those faces are printed, and not stickers.
Ouch, those models look rough. Is this what Bionicle fans want?
I'll definitely have to figure out how to get the Blacktron set.
Bionicle - I'm good with my originals from 2000. This GWP somehow missed the mark. Like where are the actual technic/Bionicle pieces that makes them what they are, rather than just another mech suit rehash?
Eh. I don’t think they look too bad. Definitely a departure, but this is the closest LEGO is going to get to “action figure” sets from now on, ever since they killed the original Bionicle design and CCBS. I would definitely prefer a return to the latter systems, but this isn’t a bad attempt to “update” a Bionicle.
The original Bionicles were a bit rough in some ways themselves, and the brick built version seems mainly harmed by the constraint of the gray balljoint pieces. Recreating the originals would be cute. I guess making one as a gated bonus like this is a way of testing the waters. I mean, what is it gonna do? Not sell?
This is all I can think of seeing those faces
The builds themselves aren't bad for the scale, but the faces just seem so odd being so flat.
Is anyone else consistently getting a message accusing them of being a bot when they try to log into Lego.com?
It's just a little GWP set. Were you expecting new moulded pieces?
Yeah it's pretty shitty to lock it behind such a high paywall and certain themes. Right after Christmas also really sucks because the vast majority of people are done spending for a while after the holidays.
This is a pretty dick move by Lego, not gonna lie.
Honestly I’m not a fan of the Bionicle GWP. I am upset that the Blacktron one is as well, mainly because I love that set.
I’m sure I can find a way to buy 300 dollars worth of LEGO, but at the moment my wallet is not happy.
Well if anyone isn't a fan of the Bionicle GWP but does want to buy $100+ of those select themes on Jan 27, I'd gladly buy it off of you lmao.
No, really. I absolutely would. I do not have any interest in those themes but really want that GWP...
Its what I want at least. For not being CCBS they capture my nostalgia for the first movie and that fire surfing. And if the face on Tahu is a tad squished it is otherwise quite charming
GWP on the other hand I will probably pass on, especially with two in a row that I want, easier to just get neither. And yeah, right after Christmas too, but not so soon it hits the boxing day sales. Certainly a choice
I am quite digging the retro remake GWPs - granted, that's two now. But, like so many others, there's not enough that I'm aiming for to make the freebie (and yeah, especially right after Xmas). Dumb question time: can you just buy the GWP sets outright? I swear that option was offered to me for one of 'em last year.
Still loving all-o-this
