I know back in the G.I.Joe toy days (Action Hero or something over there), that weapons found in the US sets were neutered, left out or replaced due to violence laws in the UK.

Heck, Lego's Dino Attack here got turned into Dino 2010, with weapons again being omitted and or replaced with cages and junk.

So like... are the Bionicle sets the same as they are here, what with all the new "launchers" (guns)?
And what of the playsets with the spring-loaded projectiles?

(Are all of these even available there yet)?

: /

(This question also applies to all the past Bionicle waves too).
If fluoride isn't dangerous, why was it added to the water in the Russian gulags and by the Germans during world war 2 to make the prisoners "apathetic" to what was going on around them?

I don't know about the bionicle, but we do get spring-loaded projectiles over here.

No set has ever been changed. They're all identical to US sets. No censoring or anything. I mean, Dino Attack had handguns and guns that looked realish. The ones in Bionicle are big and colourful, so I don't see why they'd be censored.

I think he was referring to the Bionicle sets...

Yes, I was. I'm not stupid. The title says Bionicle, this is in the non-system forum, so you could easily have worked it out from there....
