Release date for BIONICLE?

The following is just speculation:

I recently saw a Facebook post that said that BIONICLE was set to release on Janurary 12th.
I wish to know if there is any possibility or truth to this at all.

I would think January 1st, unless BIONICLE gets delayed to March 1st like Hero Factory: Invasion From Below wave 1.

I might check my local Toys R Us for the sets on December 27th to see if I am right on this part.

Still pretty exciting to see BIONICLE just around the corner smile

Can you link this post, or was it deleted?

I'd assume if it's a winter wave, ~December 2014- January 2015

If it's a summer wave, May- June 2015.

No matter how soon it is, it won't be soon enough.

I have no idea how anyone outside of Lego would know this for certain at this point, so I would disregard any information like this unless you're certain that your source is a current employee of TLG. A January release is definitely possible; almost guaranteed, in fact, if the revival is due in the winter of 2015. As Sammy said, a summer wave will probably be released in either June or July of 2015. It's also good to remember that the revival of Bionicle won't be released at the same time everywhere in the world; at the very least, it'll have two different release dates: on for most of Europe and Asia, and another for North America.

Link this post, please. January 12th is a PRETTY SPECIFIC DATE to know this early on so I'm curious as to the source.

It was a Facebook comment.

Don't worry I took a screenshot of it.

When I get home I'll censor the name and picture and post the comment.

I'm not sure if I could link the post though.

If it came from Facebook then I highly doubt it's validity. This is the place where someone made a post about Steven Speilberg hunting and killing a Triceratops.

Ya, I know. I usually take these sort of things with a grain of salt, but I figured I would just share smile

Release dates for toys have always been weird (at least in my experience). Back during Bionicle's original run, the new year's sets could start appearing as early as the start of DECEMBER of the year prior to the official "release" (I found a Lewa Phantoka set in mid December 2007, for example). Summer's more random, but normally late June/Early July is when I found new sets.

Hey guys, just wanted to say, I was right!

Yes I know that this post was too
'out-there' for it to be real, but hey. I totally called it wink

(Ok, technically, I didn't call it, but someone else did... )

Chances are sets will be available at the start of January and that particular location will get them in store by the 12th.
