A Second Chance for Lego Collectors

Initially sold for $33,000 at a first auction, the transaction did not go through, as the mystery buyer was unable to finalize his purchase. The reappearance of this coin on the market has therefore offered a new opportunity for enthusiasts. Produced in about 30 units in the early 2000s, distributed internally at LEGO as well as during competitions, this piece symbolizes a mythical part of the brand's history.


A rediscovered gem

The story of this piece is all the more extraordinary as it was discovered by chance in a Goodwill store in the United States, hidden in a box of various jewels. The alert of a collector, willing to pay $100 to acquire it, alerted employees to the potential value of their find.

For those who dream of owning a replica of this mask without breaking the bank, it is possible to get a 'BIONICLE gold' version of Tahu for a much more modest fee on BrickLink. Although these copper masks, distributed during the first edition of the BIONICLE, remain relatively rare, they represent an accessible alternative for collectors.
