Hand painting era-old Lego Bionicle heroes.
In 2001, The Lego Group unveiled to the world a new league of action figures called Bionicle—cybernetic heroes on a quest to save their doomed island from the clutches of the evil Makuta. The series was so popular, it single-handedly saved Lego from a 10 year financial crisis.
Nearly 17 later, this Lego fandom has stood the test of time, with fans worldwide continuing to celebrate the ingenuity and sheer wonder of the Bionicle saga.
Today, I have taken it upon myself to take these history-rich toys to the next level by giving them realistic, professional repaints. These once plastic toys have now been transformed into one-of-a-kind art pieces, each one entirely unique. Each and every single one of the Bionicle pieces displayed in this gallery have since been auctioned off online to dedicated Bionicle fans around the world.
