So I got my first Bohrok [I don't have any Kal either] today from Toa_Ausar -- Pahrak. I must say, he is quite a nifty set, and they are quite adorable. I love how he can form into a ball.

My next goal is t get a Rahkshi [as I unfortunately do not have any of those, either], and then to finish my Mata collection [all I have is Kopaka]. Then maybe the rest of the Bohrok and Rahkshi, but it'd be nice to have at least one of each bad guy each year, as well as all the Mata/Nuva [the Nuva I already have].

Also, I took pictures of Stars!Piraka yesterday, and the gallery became public this morning. And, surprisingly, there's already been over one-thousand views. Huh.


These pictures turned out so much better than the Rahkshi. I really hope to get the reviews written for both of those soon, as well as take pictures of Tahu next.

Rahkshi are overrated. Don't bother.

Just now getting a Bohrok? Woah!

Anyway, the Bohrok Va are the definition of cool.

As for full collections...well, the Rahkshi and Bohrok are definitions of clones. Like seriously, the only difference between the Bohrok are theirs colors and their shields. (Okay, still didn't stop me from getting one of each, and four Kal, but I was younger back then. tongue.gif )

What a ugly little bugger, but I guess that's how piraka are.

Isn't that supposed to be Nektann?

Piraka is the best of the stars.

Eh, I think they're pretty cool. One of my best friends used to have one, so I have seen them in person. Just one or two would be cool.

Yeah, that's what I get for not getting into BIONICLE until '05. I totally forgot about the Bohrok Va, though -- I definitely want to get one of those, as well as a Turaga.

Yeah, but they're still cool. =P I'll definitely get the Mata, a Bohrok Va [or more than one], a [or more] Turaga, and a Rahkshi or two before getting all the Bohrok/Rahkshi. But it all depends what I can find for a good price.

Yeah, that's Nektann, but the name of the set is just "Piraka."

IMO, he may be my least favorite. He's just so bland. The head is cool, but other than that, I think that's the only new piece, and he has no armor. He still looks pretty cool, but I don't think he's the best.

I never got a Rahkshi neither. Sounds like I miss a lot.

I think I remember seeing one recently at one of my Walgreens... or was it CVS?

Wahtever the case, which is the best Star? Gresh?

Which Rahkshi do you want? I have at least doubles of all of them, so I'm willing to sell you one.

Quite possibly, but I'm still not completely decided... My favorite three would be Gresh, Tahu, and Rahkshi, but between those I'm not really sure.

On second thought, I think Gresh probably is my favorite.

Anything but blue, really. Black or red would probably be my first choice, and then white or brown or green.

That's because those are some beautiful photos. There are some that are really perfect, like this one and this one, where the lighting highlights every detail of the set and he's perfectly in focus. And the white background is what really completes it. With some of the others, they're either blurry or Nektann himself is too dark (a problem especially when the background is white), but there are fair amount in there that are really, really well done, and Nektann is bright enough to show off his features, but not oversaturated or looking like a different color than dark blue.

And that's really great. They've made me decide that, what the heck, I'll get him anyway – probably last of the six – because it's actually possible for his set to look interesting. I hadn't seen such good photos taken of him yet. Thanks also for the multiple photos of the spine/head piece; it's nice to see that one made clearer...

Also, Rahkshi. I'm very fond of Lerahk, Vorahk, and Kurahk, personally. The pearly white on Kurahk is especially eerie with his orange eyes underneath.

I haven't gotten a Rahkshi either. :/

Lerahk is very nice, and for your next Bohrok I suggest Levahk. I know they're both green, but Levahk is very good at looking vibrant and... acidic, as his power suggests. I suppose my favorite Rahkshi is Guurahk, but if you don't like the blue, I'd agree with ToM and say go for Lerahk or Korahk.

What's cool about the second is that no editing was done besides resizing and changing to .png. My camera takes really good close-up shots, but it can get quite blurry as well [like some of the other ones you mentioned].

I probably could have fixed the darkness, by brightening the images a little more if I would have spent more time on them... Ah, well. But, yes, I am quite pleased with many of these [much more so than the Rahkshi].

Oh, wow... my pictures caused you to get a set? That makes me extremely happy -- I've been working on my images for a long, long time, and they still are far from perfect, but that really lets me know how much I've improved. I'm glad you liked them. ^^

And, yes, he definitely can look good and interesting, once you put aside the limit of new parts [only one new mold, excluding the gold piece] and blandness, he looks good.

Yeah, those are probably my favorite [maybe Turahk, too]. And, I just got an extremely good deal from Zorrakh for those three, so hopefully I can get them. Now I just gotta find the Mata for a low price...

It's not so much that I don't like him, but just that I like the others better, as they seem more evil and scary looking, for some reason [Turahk because he's the leader, Vorahk because he's black and shadowy, Kurahk for the reason ToM said -- he looks eerie with the pearly white and orange eyes, and Lerahk because of his role in the movie (who is, for some odd reason, the only Rahkshi I remember specifically doing something in that movie), and because he's poison and al that].

But the scythe is made of win, and the clawed feet work really well. He just seems bland comparatively because he's the only one with a dark color scheme; the rest are bright colors, vs his Metru Blue.

As for Rahkshi, get Lerahk, Vorahk, and maybe Guurahk. They have the best spines.
