Hey guys, Dub here! This is my first review on the Boards, I think, and today I'm reviewing Exclusive Tahu Mask from NYCC 2014.
This LEGO part is one out of fifteen hundred given to people at New York Comic Con 2014, as well as to two lucky Twitter users who were randomly drawn from a pool of others who retweeted the post. It is the exact same mold used for Tahu's mask in 70787 Tahu Master of Fire, but recolored to trans white.
I bought this from a seller on eBay for US $33.00, which is definitely a high price for just one piece. The packaging is the same as what has been used when LEGO minifigures were previously given away during past comic conventions. The package opens up from the top, and hinges downwards.
The card on the inside has the exact same image that is currently used as the BIONICLE website's header, only cropped to fit inside the packaging. The Mask of Creation is displayed prominently on the front.
On the back of the card it states on a banner up top that this mask is one out of fifteen hundred, which I mentioned above, with the new BIONICLE logo underneath, while the URL for the BIONICLE website is just beneath that.
I've never seen a trans white BIONICLE mask before, and, to my knowledge, this is the first one. The mask resembles 8534 Tahu's Great Kanohi Hau, the large, arching "mouth" section and square shape being the chief similarities between the two. There are two slits on each side of the mask instead of the usual three, and the eyes are smaller.
The mask has crisper edges than any BIONICLE mask I've owned, and it feels good in my hand. If you are willing to part with your money, I'd recommend picking one up.
Here's a few more shots of the mask:
EDIT: @noob1234 Has reminded me that a trans white Kaukau was sometimes found in the 8530 Masks and 8525 Masks sets.
