Welcome, one and all!

I bet you can tell what I'm talking about by the title, and if you can't, then too bad for you. :P

So, what is your favorite BIONICLE set of all time?

Well, I'm certainly not surprised. He was good for parts, too.

Ay.

:P

I almost never took him apart until I made his pre-pit.

I took him apart pretty soon... his pieces were too good not to be used on something I was making.

It would be, if I had remembered to take pictures of the MOC before taking it apart...

Another good set was Sidorak, for both pieces and design. I believe that his left arm/Herding Blade could be swung, his legs and neck had good poseability, and he had several interesting recolors, like dark red Nuva shoulder armor and Metru Nui Matoran torso.

Eh, I'd recommend him. Not quite over Roodaka, though, as she had silver Rahkshi heads and a glow-in-the-dark 1x1x1/3 round LEGO single-piece as teeth.

Blaargh, the high heels were a bad idea. They didn't have very good pieces, plus they made her unstable.

I'd disagree.

Roodaka stands up fine, and I found those Visorak legs (feet?) very usesful.

She stands up okay, but you kind of have to get the hang of posing her before anything good comes of it.

I never found much use for the Visorak feet myself...

Hm... well, I never got him.

Axonn, if I remember properly, was hard to pose with those hands of his, and his huge axe...

Brutaka was actually a pretty good set, with all his PearlGold pieces. I still prefer Iruini Hagah, though, for his DarkGold.

Though it was rather big, I really liked the shape and overall look of the Olmak.

Vezon and Fenrakk was also rather good, with Fenrakk's legs working surprisingly well.

Oh, yes, that was an even more useful mask than the Olmak, actually. Smaller.

Yep.

It kinda looks almost like a mini Olmak.

Somewhat... less evil and amphibious-looking, though.

Back on topic, the other set with a Kualsi was definitely not as good. (Defilak)

The BIONICLE playsets were always kind of lackluster, too, though there were a few that stood out.

...care too name favorites?

I always prefered the 2006 playsets; the 2005 Hordika weirded me out, and their were only three different Baraki heads.

Battle of Metru Nui or whatever it was called was good for parts. Same with the Piraka Stronghold and the Race for the Mask of Life, I guess.

That board game in 2006 was the only set containing elemental-colored BIONICLE minifigure torsos and the Zamor Catapult, incidentally.

They were alright. Nothing special, mostly, unless you count the later editions of the Tower of Toa. (Turquoise strings and PearlGold Kraahkan, anyone?)

Do you have the PearlGold or DarkGold Kraahkan?

You're lucky to have it. I looked, but Target and Kmart were sold out, I think. I got the Visorak Battle Ram instead, which actually isn't that bad.

Ah, DarkGold is nice. Though you could sell it for a lot of money if it were PearlGold.

The PearlGold Kraahkan is worth more than the DarkGold...

Nor would I, but still, it'd be more worth it just to have it. You can more easily get another DarkGold Kraahkan than a PearlGold one.

I didn't know there was a Pearl Gold Kraahkan!

What set did that come in?

It came in the 2006 edition of Tower of Toa. In that edition, they also replaced the green LEGO studded-strings with plain turquoise non-studded strings, which you may have heard of.

Yep, I'd like to have some myself. The studded strings are kind of easier to use, though.

Tower of Toa I'd always liked, but I think I told the story of how I got the Visorak Battle Ram instead.

I have I story about the Visorak Battering Ram.

It isn't a pretty one...
