Before I got the set, when I was still gazing longingly at the little pamphlet and drooling over these "bionicles", whatever they were, I don't think I really understood how he worked.
Like was his toe a rock or something? And the way he was posed reminded me of the RoboRiders, with his feet in the front and back, but especially the way he had his arms up in the air like that. It seemed the least humanoid of the poses.
Also I'm pretty sure Onua's picture
made me think of the Mata torso shoulder attachment point as some kind of flower.
Also I thought Kopaka's mask
looked more like a helmet that was looking to the left in the picture as opposed to a mask looking to the right.
Also I was really surprised when I got Lewa and he had a giant nose
. (He was my first Toa. :3)
(Just saw the pictures again and had some flashbacks, don't mind me.)
P.S. Bohrok are the best sets.
