The legacy of Bionicle:
You may be familiar With Lego’s Bionicle series. It consists of a pantheon of heros that seems to change every 6-12 months and a host of lesser helpers. Plus numerous bad guys. Unfortunatly the system for building these figures is vastly different from the Tradition LEGO brick system. as a result, once the sets are taken apart and jumbled together you get a pile of specialized pieces that are very difficult to work with.
Perhaps I am being biased, I am inexperienced in building with the bionicle pieces. I have seen some interesting personally designed mechs, but mostly people seem to let thier pieces collect and rot.
PS: if you are interested in purchasing any of the early Bionicle heros please contact me!
