Prototypes Discussion

Got these in the mail recently. Very interesting parts. It looks like the injection mold wasn’t fully purged before the parts were made, resulting in the mottled appearence.

Here they are with some of my other interesting parts

so has anyone else seen the new prototypes on BS01?

The recently added some for the Nuve, Hordika, Phantoka, and glatorian.

So what do you think?

I find it interesting that they were going to use upside down Zamor launchers instead of the Thornax launchers we got.

Look cool.

I remember those Glatorian pictures from back in the day. I was probably almost as into leaks back then as Meso.

So recently a LEGO designer by the name of Mike Colonnese shared some 1998 concept art for two LEGO themes that never came out: Dino Racers and Hero Knights:




While those never came out, I still think it would be fun to speculate about what happened with it and maybe even make some MOCs inspired by it.
Any thoughts?

They look a lot like some Transformers, and I love them.

I wanna make a MOC series based off these now.

Though a scorpion tank is absolutely NOT an original idea.

These legit look like some of the best set designs I’ve ever seen.

Bring this theme back in the year 2020, you cowards

Yeah, I think I’ve seen those before. It’s funny to me how Lego seems to mess around with existing parts before even prototyping new ones, as evidenced by this unholy bohrok/Vahki amalgamation. :stuck_out_tongue:

I find it interesting that they went to the trouble of making new specially molded Bohrok face plates for these prototypes.

it appears it’s just some well melded part combos
the red one uses kopaka’s shield with the bohrok face piece, tho i’m not entirely sure about what the other pieces melded in are

By Jove you’re right. I also just noticed that the red one uses Aqua-axes in the legs, and the green one uses Matau’s Kau-Kau staff.

The red one also seems to have the end of a Kohlii stick melded on top.
