The episode received minor backlash from LEGO fans for showcasing custom LEGO models created by fans without their permission and without crediting them. In particular, the Bionicle model used to represent the early "Boneheads of Voodoo Island" prototype is not an official LEGO creation, but the work of Bionicle fan Aaron Newman, taken from his Flickr.com gallery. The editors of the episode simply ran a Google image search for "Boneheads of Voodoo Island" and used the first result without making sure if it was official or not. See more
