Farewell, Lorne... and others


Tonight the original, Bionicle universe form of Lorne, my self-MOC, was finally disassembled to harvest its many "special" pieces and to make room for more Hero Factory creations.  Lorne 2.0 lives on in its stead.

Behind the scenes, I've recently quietly disassembled an entire shelf worth of my favorite Bionicle characters, and over the past few weeks I've built 15 more new Hero Factory MOCs for which I'll start slowly releasing videos this week.  Exciting times on the LEGO front!

In somewhat related news, I've begun to realize that the overwhelming majority of my neatly-sorted Bionicle parts have not been touched all year, even when I've had intense MOC-making sprees.  I'm a collector at heart and really, really like having "one of everything" at my fingertips, but what's the point if most of it sees no use?  It's beginning to feel like there's another epic parts sell-off coming in the first half of 2012.

  2. No! Why Lorne! Of course he was getting old...and I take apart most of my self-mocs. Mostly because they usually end in hideous failures. But with my MOCs, its either really good or really bad. Back to subject, I can't wait to see those new MOCs coming out.

  8. We shall honor Lorne in our memories. I, a Bionicle master, shall always recognize Lorne as one the best MOCs ever built. But the time to move on has come. His destiny is complete, and for many others, it is yet to be discovered. My friends, it is time go.

    This is Jang's 100th post of 2011! Of course, its one of the few that is a bionicle post. But its ironic that this post is of some of Jang's greatest MOCs being taken apart.

  12. Lorne doesn't wear a real Bionicle "helmet". His helmet is (or was) made of 2 Skrall armor plates and some Exo-Force parts.
