Karzahni And Lesovikk Mistake?
Posted by Richard on July 23, 2007 at 10:06 AM CST:
Those of you who ordered Toa Lesovikk or Karzahni during their time on LEGOŽ Shop At Home may be sad to hear that only Karzahni is being shipped for now, a mistake was made and both sets were supposed to be for pre-order. The LEGO company located and shipped what Karzahni sets they could find but Lesovikk remains on pre-order.
BZPower Commemorative Brick Sale
Posted by Richard on July 23, 2007 at 10:32 AM CST:
Chances are you already know about this if you go to BZPower quite often, they are selling 150 commemorative bricks that have been engraved with the site's name. It's limit 2 per person, $5.00 USD with $2.00 USD for shipping costs. The bricks seem to be 6 studs long, so Brickfest atendees will find they can build it into thier name badge, with enough space to add a port for a mask or something at the end with the two stud long empty space. I already have some engraved bricks similar to this, assuming the same quality is in place these should be very sturdy. Only 150 will be sold and I happen to know there are fewer than 148 left ;) ...I should point out these are not a LEGOŽ promotional but a promotional made from a LEGO product, just to prevent confusion.
Happy BARRAKI Birthday!

Birthday Express has new BARRAKI items available for your next underwater birthday. I particularly want those Mahri Nui placemats, but the stickers and balloons (all in the "BARRAKI Party Supplies" section) are nice too.
Carbunicle's Lesovikk Pictures
Posted by Richard on July 24, 2007 at 01:40 PM CST:
Carbunicle sent me a link to his pictures of Toa Lesovikk, he has some shots of the parts and the set itself you may find of interest. Follow this link for the pictures.
The link no longer has the pictures

BIONICLE, the horse, has been temporarily suspended from harness racing until the conclusion of an inquiry into the practices of his trainer.
The average horse lives 25-30 years, so BIONICLE The Horse may still be alive today. I would however be very disconcerted if LEGO BIONICLE Branded Glue hit the market around this time.
Missing Lesovikk Issue Explained
Posted by Richard on July 27, 2007 at 12:03 PM CST:
Earlier I reported that Toa Lesovikk seemed to have disapeared from the orders where he had been purchased by customers online, due to a mistake in which he was supposed to be for preorder only. Now it looks like Toa Lesovikk has been recalled for missing parts (but not for safety issues). For more information please visit BZPower.com and look for the "Lesovikk Recall Solved" story. Credit to Brandon Washburn and BZPower.com for this information.

Before the mask of life it probably ate slow fish, after, it probably eats slow Toa. The mask of life transformed this ordinary sea creature into a new protector.
