Shall I call it The Cave?

It's mroe of an inside joke, so I shall refer to it as Onvermel's and my Bioncile Shrine (Or just Bionicle room)
On the the left, we have mostly my stuff (Not counting the small dresser and shelf, that stuff is kind of split) and Onvermel's on the left. Yeah, this all of the Bionicle posters we own, but we are attempting to get more from our Toa Brothers Hau One and Lost Matoran and Toa Sister Mithra Nui. You can also see two chairs, where we can sit and chat about Bionicles.

Here you can see our canister collection (Well, not really, but suffice to say, we have over 200 canisters, but only maybe 75%. We got lots of doubles of Tahnok and Pahrak.
Below, two shelves, one containing lots of early year stuff, plus my copies of all 4 movies and almost all the novels and reference books. Also all of our Toa Mata Canisters, all 6 Turaga, an Exo Toa, and some mask sets boxes. The lower level contains some of our more impressive and favorite MOCs.
Below that, at the bottom, we have our boxes full of MOCs, sets that we either didn't get or come with a canister, all our unused parts, and a few other miscellaneous items.

On the left hand side, inside the dressers, we have all my Mata Matoran in the top drawer, Onvermel's Matoran in the middle, and a few larger sets of mine in the bottom. A few lucky Titans, such as my Makuta, The Shadowed One, and Takanuva, as well as Onvermel's Voporak and umbra, get to see the light of day.
This small shelf in the corner holds Onvermel's novels, his one story material, his red Agori, some Matoran MOCs, and our Bahrag set.

And up above it all, we have the Rocko T3 and a couple Nui Rami hovering about.
Hope you enjoyed the tour of our Bionicle room!

Wanna get those eyes out of that head?

Well here's your chance to know how. I have taken it upon myself to make a video of taking the eyes out of the toa mata head and to show you folks how to do it.

Unfortunately I am very new to the video business and am not terribly good at being in front of a camera. Hopefully I'll be able to edit my video's however my computer is really old and I need a new one so we'll see.

So here you go.

Value Village Hunting

So yesterday Hanahtu and myself went hunting for Bionicle sets at all the Value Villages in Calgary which contains four of them. We were able to find stuff and the first three stores which ended up with this pile.
Not a bad haul at all as the first stop had about nine of the bags which included all but one of the canisters.

We were able to piece together four complete sets that included Garan, Zesk, Raanu, Lehrak and Gali.
Then there was an almost complete red vahki only missing it's disk even with it's canister. Were were able to piece together these hunks of sets about half of which we will be trying to complete with other parts of our and the other half will be scrapped.
However the best part (in my own opinion) was finding a pohatu canister with the "CD ROM" logo on the side as I been meaning to aquire one but are not the easiest things to find and finding it at a thrift store made it all the better.
Finally the rest of the bags were filled with some Hero Factory, Ben 10, a tiny bit of Lewa Master of Jungle, some mega and to my delight this little guy.
Not a bad find at three Value Villages. We did also stop by a few other retailers to find these. The Graphic Novel 1 is Hanatu's and the Activity book is mine. (I know have all of Gen 2 books to my knowledge.)

Special Box

Some time ago I found this box at Value Village. I often find Bionicle stuff there (About half my entire collection, if not more is from Value Village, which is quite impressive) I don't always pick up the stuff, (I do about 95% of the time) and this was something I couldn't pass up. A cool box which I had never seen before, plus it had a bunch of posters in it! (Which I regretfully gave to my brother [Not Onvermel, another brother, Toa Leseff, he shall be known as])
At the time, I didn't realize how rare this box was. I am assuming it's rare, simply because Onvermel pointed out it is not listed on Bricklink. But so are some other stuff we own, which we shall get around to talking more in depth about at a later time.
More pictures of this box can be found on my Flickr, if you are interested
