Hobbit set images 'leak' from Mexican factory

Posted by ,

I was emailed images of three Hobbit sets (79015-7) from someone in Mexico last night. I suspect the images and/or the sets were acquired illegitimately from the factory there, so I wasn't going to add them here, but it seems that every other site has published them, so what the heck, they are now in the database. Update: We have removed them at the request of LEGO.   ...

There have been rumours of the return of Bionicle in 2015 in a couple of online forums recently. Now, GrooveBricks has posted a image of a display stand which appears to corroborate them. It shows 13 sets, 5 small and 8 larger. I wonder what this means for HERO Factory? Has Bionicle's replacement theme not been as successful as Bionicle itself? I think we can guess the answer... I...
