    I know, that's why I said "speak for yourself." My statement makes no sense unless you were talking about the stock set.

    I honestly thought you were trying to make a 'Captain Obvious' joke or something like that when you said 'Speak for yourself.'

    I don't know. It just didn't seem clear the first time.

    And that's why I went with the thinner and hunched look for mine instead of building the stock set.

    Protector of Jungle is pretty good, but it's only because he has elbows.

    Personally, I think Protector of Ice is better, especially with the weapons that come with the set.

    Honestly, I prefer the gold. Silver is kinda... Eh.

    Honestly... Just put the white abdomen on the stock one and you have yourself a winner. (Although I don't dislike the silver armor, it's going to look silly with his gold mask on.)

    Of the four Toa I have right now, I really only like Tahu's and Onua's color schemes at all. Pohatu and Gali suffer obscenely from having too much metallic armor (because I'm totally counting gunmetal amongst the gold and silver of the larger sets). I want the colors of the Toa to stand out and be the main attraction. As it is, they're highlights to metallic armor. And that's plain boring.

    ---

    Also, EU guys with LEGO Stores near them, go get yourselves transparent orange Masks of Fire. I love mine and you should love yours too.

    It could still happen here.

    Of course the number of LEGO Stores here seems proportionally smaller since they're concentrated in certain areas and so many fans are nowhere near them...

    In fact I live really close to one now but have never bothered visiting because I just don't think of it, having been so used to it being a nonexistent factor where I used to live.

    But that's also only assuming that the promotion doesn't extend to the online shop too, which I guess it is for the EU one and I overlooked that bit before.

    If both those pieces and the friction pieces were black, they'd be better.

    Really blows that Grinder has green eyes again rather than red. And the limbs are still awful.

    Looks kinda cool otherwise I guess.

    Agreed. He'd look (slightly) better if the shins and thighs were switched.

    Still, on a positive note, new shin parts.

    Got Lewa today, he's just so much better in person.

    I've always liked his mask but not as Lewa's mask it just looked like a cool mask I could use for Mocs but again in person it looks much better.

    Honestly? The stock one looks a million times beter. The silver is too dark, and blends too much with the rest of his non-white parts. Unless it could somehow be replaced with the old pearl light grey, the gold really is the way to go.

    I feel like he has one too many colours at work. At least he's not a typical red-and-black boring villain colourscheme, but I dunno. Design-wise he looks cool, but maybe the thin thighs stick out too much when the rest of him is clearly bulky and armoured. Ekimu looks sweet.

    Agreed to a million boys. the lack of red eyes sucks. OG Bionicle gave every Toa different eye colours until 2006, and now there only exists two? (MAYBE some of the other skull guys will get red?)

    So I added onto Kopaka to give him a better handle for his shield and better(?) looking skates. Thoughts?
