Prototypes Discussion

Congrats on the acquisition! Very rarely have we seen confidential packaging be made available for purchase on the secondhand market, so that’s a very interesting find you have. The image itself is possibly new… I vaguely recall seeing it before, but I could be mistaken. Either way, it would’ve been part of the initial leaked images for Hero Factory’s 2012 Breakout wave. This image shows Black Phantom’s box art, featuring the same Evo with Hero-Cuffs thing as this Furno bag has, which means it would’ve been from the same stage in production.

Is there anything of note on the back of the bag, perchance?

Thanks for the reply, the back of the bag has the same print as the front.

@nexolo yes, there are parts inside.

why does his weapon look like a model out of roblox

probably because roblox most likely ported it into roblox as a gear but still

The Breakout leaks have always been nostalgic for me. This brings back memories.

How did you manage to get this? It seems like a lost prototype box. If things like this still existed today, i can’t see anyone getting those unless they worked for LEGO or something

@LTVmocs ROBLOX copied the handcuffs from the Hero Factory Breackout handcuffs, even though very few people who play Roblox actually know this.

i think most people can assume roblox ported the models. I kinda find it interesting that the roblox model looks the same as in the preliminary image

also why are we talking about roblox

Here’s a weird one:

Prototype Ehlek, Carapar, and Takadox (Who were originally named Onek, Kaparap, and Takadoko, apparently).

What is a dark blue Great Ruru?

Holy moly, lad! Where did you acquire that? Are you willing to sell it?


Regarding the Barraki thing, I think I’ve seen that one few years ago. It is from Russian preliminary catalogue, hence their names looking weird. It is just cyrillic.

I got it from another collector. I do not plan on selling it

Holy heck… what is up with Ehlek’s face?!

By cancelled I don’t mean themes that ended or sets that retired, but rather sets and themes that were planned for realise, but for some reason never saw the light of day.

Like in just2good’s examples:

So, let’s discuss! What sets that were cancelled do you regret never got released? Personally, I regret all those cancelled LEGO Games sets… 4 of them in total. Heck, there was even a Knight’s Kingdom game planned, but never released in 2009. Wait, 2009?! Knight’s Kingdom was between 2004-2006.

Another regret is probably the Sand Tarakava, which didn’t pass the prototype stage, and 5 prototypes were given to 5 random collectors. It would have been cool to get it… Good luck you can still build it if you have the right parts, like @Eljay did.
I might be mistaken, but I heard there was a Brutaka set planned for 2007, but that never got released either… (If it was even intended to be released)

Anyway, let’s discuss!

You can’t actually build the sand Tarakava out of extra parts because the yellow Ruru is exclusive. Eljay painted his.

Also the Brutaka thing was a fake.

What a shame… It would have been cool get it in yellow… This is probably the biggest regret about the cancellation of this set…

Thanks for telling me. Still, a 2007 Brutaka Titan set would have been sooo cool. What a shame we never got him.

Shouldn’t this be merged with the prototype set topic?

No, this is about sets that were never released, not about prototypes.

It’s basically the same thing

Prototypes are WIP versions of sets. This is about sets that never got released, whether they made it past the prototype phase or not (which many of them did).
