    No its got nothing to do with DA, Actually quite the contrary. DA is a very friendly site for MOCers cause no one scribbles on your photos with "this needs fixing" or "I don't like this here" shoving their opinions around like its fact. We for the most part use words like "I suggest," and "I think" meaning, "its our opinion." What you're seeing is purely me being me. Jon Stewart said it best. "I'm not going to censor myself to comfort your ignorance." I'm also not going to pretend to be someone I'm not. What you see is what you get. And instead of keeping my thoughts and opinions to myself so people like me, I'm going to be honest with myself and be honest with you.So please, don't go judging the whole community just because of one person from there who happens to be very different than most anyone else who's active there. http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2013/254/8/0/bionicle_moc___byorak_3_3_by_alex_darkrai-d6lwjdx.png http://fav.me/d4kr6ei"]http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2013/217/0/e/bionicle_moc__matteo_by_3rdeye88-d4kr6ei.jpg This is the second of two of my MOCs to receive a Daily Deviation, the first being Mototaur. http://fav.me/d2uvtr2"]http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2013/027/d/f/bionicle_moc__robot_unicorn_by_rahiden-d2uvtr2.jpg This was Aiden's first MOC to get a DD, the second one being his swordfish. Go on, tell everyone how sub par we are. This completely affirms my attitude. People are going to judge you regardless of how you act, so you might as well be yourself, and let them judge you for who you really are, not pretend so people like this pretend to like you. DV thinks he knows what its like on DA and what I'm like overall, based on one aspect of interacting with me. Who are you to judge anyone? How incredibly conceited of you. Isn't lego exclusively selling technic at TRU now? Coulda sworn I read an article on Brickset about that. :shrug: I'm just going off of what I was told by several vendors I was fortunate to talk to and who were nice enough to let me pick their brains while they stocked shelves. At least I know its tentative information and don't try to hand it down as scripture. *chuckles* I worked the backroom to. It sucked.

    More of any of those colors would be nice. They're trans colors but they end up being kind of milky and simi-opaque, so really anything else that further has that look would be nice. But agreed more trans bright green to supplement the Black Phantom sword and rocka swords would be nice to. And I'd love to see some diversification, orange and purple maybe? How awesome would trans purple weapon pieces be?

    Aanchir's right it wasn't directed at you. My apologies, I should have been more specific. I was indeed referring to Darth Vader's comment about stores ordering sets. In my region of the US(central California) at least, a distributor comes and handles the lego department of the store. I ask the TRU employees when the new sets are coming in, and they just shrug and say "someone comes in and stocks the new sets" So in probability, yeah it is kinda lego's fault TLM is taking up so much space. But Lynchir is right, that's cause they're selling like crazy right now. And I assume wave 2 comes along when the DVD comes out. Its a brilliant marketing strategy. One of the things lego definitely nailed on the head.And you're Right Aanchir, it is. I stopped giving a crap about being polite when you guys didn't want to drop the subject and move on.

    I torrented them. Episode one and two are both on piratebay and kickasstorrent.com. They were good quality to.

    Actually, not all TRU's do their own Lego set ordering. Contrary to what Mr. Know it all says, TRU in some cases simply has a vendor for lego come in and they stock the shelves with what Lego wants there because TRU and lego have special arrangements to carry certain things first or exclusively. Technic won't be sold anywhere else in the US now. I've found this out through speaking with the several people I've met while lurking TRU for new set and this is what I was told. It might not hold true for some store, probably even many, but in my region that's how the new sets are distributed, Lego directly makes sure those sets make it onto the shelves when they want by having vendors come in and stock the lego sections. Then after that restock comes on the trucks with all the other stock for TRU and overnight restocks. As far as I know TRU is the only North American store it does this with. I worked at Target over the holiday season and we'd just get sets in like regular stock. Oh, I should also mention that I worked at TRU during the holiday season back in 2006, but I only ever worked swing shift, so I never did any of the overnight and back end stuff, just worked the floor during the psychotic part of the year.

    Does anyone know about 66158?

    Irnakk didn't just come with the gold Thok spine, it also came with some gold hoses to. These don't have those but interestingly enough the connections for them are still there, like in the ones that went to the head. what sucks is I actually kinda like the red one's construction better than what ended up being on Irnakk.

    RIGHT?! When I heard about Spiders, scorpions and bats being added to the mix I was like "Aw man those will make great UBs, then we can get Rogon, then maybe Bladvic and a beaver for the good tribe and there was wave 2 of the UBs I thought. Or maybe Shadowind. But no they went a whole different direction. I was actually kinda bummed cause a Rogon UB would be pretty sweet. Lego Y U screw this up? That's how you see it, its not how I see it. The "it may change" line means that who ever gave the information doesn't know for sure either. Just cause it came from someone within lego doesn't make it fact either. They could not now themselves to ya know. That's what I'm trying to get through to you. lego's a big corporation with many departments, and we've seen in the past that there can be communication issues internally. So yeah I don't take this as anything more than rumor and hearsay.ANd that for some reason pisses you off. Like, why do you care if I don't take it as gospel from some kind of TLG god(I'd probably still be an atheist anyways)? I'll take information as fact when A) there's a source, a name, someone placed to the information, and B when they can say "this is happening" its concrete, not "it might happen" Mights and maybes don't equate to much for me.

    Does anyone know about 66158?

    Brickset has an entry for it with no picture, but I can't find anything on Bricklink. http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/66158_Piraka_Kaita Brickipedia also has an entry for it calling it a Piraka Kaita which is what the earlier combiner sets were called. Here's the other one http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/66157_Piraka_Kaita The only place I can't seem to find it in a lego data-base site is Bricklink. Its not under the piraka or supplemental. If you can, I suggest you maybe message Huw at Brickset, see if he can track down the information on where that entry comes from or maybe the moderators on Brickipedia since they seem to have more information on it. There's gotta be some official information on lego's end if this really is something they produced and distributed in Korea. If not, then its most likely as Lewitaur said, a fake.

    Agreed, meaning they themselves don't know. So that's where we're at. WE DON"T KNOW ANYTHING FOR SURE.

    Says you. Look, some of us are going to continue treating it as a rumor, so shut up already. We(at least I) don't give a crap what the reason was. Until there's more information than this vague crap, its a rumor.

    True, maybe we'll see the more generic usable parts come out next year. But that would probably mean the heads which are specific to this year's story won't be utilized. I doubt Lego would release the sets next year after the story line has already unfolded, unless somehow it would still fit in with the early 2015 December release wave. *fingerscrossed*

    I'm pretty sure this doesn't mean constraction as a whole is going. We actually determined in the HF ending in 2015? thread that its probably going to stick around for a while, just with different names along the way. This possible news just means that the Chima Ultrabuilds might not be released, that's if it proves true at all.

    Okay, so entertaining the notion that this line is scrapped, have any production sets been made or just the display/prototypes like we saw at the toy fair? How soon does lego typically start production of a series before its intended release? And since the ambassadors are so in touch with lego as you won't shut up about, is it possible to get some kind of petition type movement happening where they do release it but perhaps in smaller numbers?
