U.K. ShopAtHome Now Stocking ALL Summer Sets For BIONICLE
Posted by Richard on July 12, 2007 at 05:59 PM CST:
With the exception of KARZAHNI and TOA LESOVIK (names may be misspelled), you can currently find all of the Titan/Warrior sets, the Mahri, and the three playsets. Many reliable sources say you can find the missing two in the LEGOŽ brand stores. Forum link. This news comes from our U.K. reporter PREDATOR, who also reports sales at his local stores in this topic.
I didn't misspell them after all, but I did misspell "misspell"

Brickshelf Is Down
Posted by Simon on July 14, 2007 at 06:10 PM CST:
Today I have just found out that Brickshelf, the Lego Image hosting site seems to be down for good. The Site Now has 'Brickshelf has discontinued operation. We apologize for any inconvenience.' written across it. I advise all members that if they have some BIONICLEŽ or LEGOŽ work that they back it up on their home system or place it in another Image Hosting site. Forum Link.
UPDATE: Brickshelf will now Close on the 31st of July, so for whoever has any work which they haven't got on their homesystem are advised to save it. Thanks to Weremagnus for this Information.
I'm not sure what turn of events took place, but Brickshelf appears to still be operational today, ten plus years from their reported demise.
Maxilos In Hand, More Pictures Up Soon
Posted by Simon on July 16, 2007 at 07:02 PM CST:
Earlier today Imatron received Maxilos and Spinak through LEGOŽ Shop At Home, but halfway through uploading the pictures the computer had some technical difficulties. He did want to note that Spinak's Head is not a mask but a part similar to the Barraki heads. When Imatron gets his computer problems fixed he can fully review it.
Fun fact, I seem to emit a field that is detrimental to electronics. It's not been as bad as it was ten years ago, but I still have to wear mechanical watches.
Karzahni And Lesovikk On S@H
Posted by Richard on July 17, 2007 at 07:54 PM CST:
Seth Huy and Xanxost report that Lesovikk and Karzahni are available now, (at the time this was posted) and hidden, strangely, in the Titans section rather than the Warriors section...I wonder how long they've been in there for?
I suppose technically Karzahni is more of a mechanic, so maybe Warriors was the wrong section for him after all? Still, I don't see how Lesovikk is more of a Titan than a Warrior, as Toa tend to fight things.

I finally had a reason to order something else from SmileMakers.com, so I finally ordered some PIRAKA stickers. Poor THOK got left out somehow, but then again he always was a loner.
Myabe Thok is there and they just forgot to shade him?
