Since my PMship is still here, and I just got Gelu [late Christmas present], I thought I may as well ramble on about him. I may do a review some time, but maybe not.
Anyway, when I first had finished building him [which took, what, less than five minutes?], I was disappointed. He looked cooler in the pictures, you could say. But then I started to play around with him, pose him, move his helmet around, etc., and now I like him a little better.
He looks good, definitely, which is one of the main reasons that I bought him [I really wanted those snowflakes, and with Gelu I get the awesome swords/helmet/other pieces as well than if I just got Metus].
And, I hate to admit it, but DV is right; he’s boring. I still think he is one of the better-looking Inika there are [much better than any of the Toa from ‘08], but take off his awesome snowflakes, helmet, and swords, and he’s just an Inika.
The swords and helmet aren’t quite as awesome as I thought they’d be, but they’re still lovely.
I’ll need to look at him more and play around with him a bit more before coming to a conclusion, but I don’t think he’s a waste, especially since there won’t be more BIONICLE sets.
Now I hope to get Mata Nui and Kiina. I haven’t been able to find MN, so I may have to order him off S@H.
