    Went to pick up Corroder and Thunder tonight - and, of course, they didn't have them.

    But they did have Xplode and Meltdown, both of whom I happily took home instead.

    These two sets have blown me away. There literally is not one negative I can think of for either of them - well, except for the decals, of course. Oh, and those floppy leg armor pieces, but to be honest I don't really mind them here. But overall, they're both excellent sets, and I fully recommend them.

    Got Thunder and Corroder today. Had fun building them, but the stickers were a PAIN.

    I got Malum last week. What other Glatorians are worth it? I only have Mata Nui (canster) and Malum so far. Definitely getting Ackar (that guy with the fire sword) and maybe a skrall (shield guy or club guy) or scorpion guy.

    As awesome as Stronius is, I can't say I can recommend him over the regular Skrall.

    Yeah, the Skrall seems to be the better deal with his sword, shield, and pointy bits. Stonius just seems like they put big black pieces on him just to fill up his body mass.

    Which one glows in the dark again?

    I just got Thunder. He's really nice. Poseable and fun. Some pieces of armor occasionally get in the way, but overall he's really nice.

    kinda disappointed with xplode...it looks too lanky in the arms and his shoulder pad spike things seem to stick too far off from his arms.....
    just finished xplode as well :)

    Man, you guys are lucky, My local stores still have stars and Glatorian legends. Ersico, I'm loving the paint jobs you gave those villains.

    Oh by the way, I don't know if you guys knew or not (no one mentioned it in the thread), but those Bionicle Stars stopmotion videos were made by no other than Patrick Boivin himself, the guy that made all those awesome transformer stopmotions, like the dancing movie bumblebee and "Jazz with a General Problem"
    Hehe, sorry if I kinda derailed the thread.

    So, did anyone else read the new comic? It's nothing mind-blowing, but considering all of the cheesy bits of story we got early on, it could have been a lot worse. And, interestingly enough, it's written by Greg Farshtey.

    Y'know how Spherus Magna's a great place now with all the incoming MU denizens?

    Well.

    The GBs have unleashed a doomsday weapon designed specifically to kill Toa.

    OH SHI-

    (Makes me wonder about Ackar and co. Well they be interpreted as Toa?)

    Bionicle is dead, let it rot in peace. The story was never good in the first place.

    Dude, it's a Bionicle topic, you talk about *gasp* Bionicle. We still talk about Beast Wars, it hasn't been around in over
    ten years. I'd consider it "dead". But people don't let it "rot in peace"

    I know, it lacks much thought.



    I really hope Hero Factory lasts. The lack of strong story really in a way, helps.
    I can do almost whatever I want with them without straying to far off story
