What web sites, resources, and tools do enthusiasts use? It would be helpful to have a list of these available to reference in the future.
Peeron/PICSL is one of the oldest and most comprehensive databases of parts and sets.
Bricklink is an online marketplace that also maintains a massive parts database.
Brickipedia is less comprehensive than Peeron but has details on more non-toy aspects of Lego, and after years of dealing with MediaWiki and knockoffs, I find it easier to use than Peeron.
Here are some notable BIONICLE and Hero Factory resources:
- A BIONICLE fansite and forum (note there IS a LEGO Discussion forum, and a Hero Factory forum)
- A BIONICLE storyline wiki (we do have brief set information on pages that have set forms)
- A Hero Factory (operated by the above BIONICLE wiki as well) (set information as well)
