January Release Possible for Bionicle 2015
There’s more breaking news on the Bionicle front. Exo-6, the admin of BioniFigs who previously gave us the release window of Bionicle has gotten some new information about the release window, alongside additional information about the promotional and combo models.
Following a translation by Eurobricks member Leewun, it seems that info Exo-6 gave us before only applied to local French toy shops (which we talked about in the video). In terms of a retail release, he is suspecting a January date, with a possible Christmas release for the lucky few that tend to get these sets earlier.
He also revealed that combos will be returning, and that there is definitely a TV commercial with Gali and the Stone Protector (Defender, for those who are more familiar with the old translations). It’s not yet known if the Protectors will be side protagonists or antagonists that will fight the Toa Mata. It is very likely that there will be more commercials featuring the other Toa and Protectors, but for right now that TV spot is confirmed.
Like we mentioned before, BioniFigs is a very popular international Bionicle community, and the site has been very reliable with leaks before. It previously gave detailed information on the Chima 2014 ultrabuilds before any pictures were released. However, while Exo-6 is a reputable member of the community, he is still not a representative of the LEGO Group and an official announcement has yet to be made, so take this new information as you will.
