Got Taka.

Posted by GreenBioGuy , Jan 12 2010 · 118 views

Well, this afternoon I got Turaga Starz Taka on impulse. I was actually looking to see if they had any Atlantis sets yet (I had no idea when they were being released). They did not, and I moseyed on down to the BIONICLE section and saw the starz sets just sitting there as happy as could be. My eyes fell on Taka, and it occured to me that he was white and my current MoC project is white themed as well. Upon inspecting the included pieces, I came to the conclusion that the purchasing of said set could be advantageous to said MoCing project. Thus... I got him, mainly for the white shoulder armor, new feet (thank goodness for those axle holes on their underside), and the new intriguing chest piece.

Besides the new pieces, he's basically... an Avtoran who has stolen Taka's mask (how dare he?!). This kinda makes a good Turaga Taka, but not a Nuva re-make. I don't want to repeat what everyone else has said though, so I'll stop there. wink.gif
I can tell you one thing, he'll be busted quite soon. rolleyes.gif

Good. I'm tempted to get a Stars or two, but their price just isn't attracting me.

The feet look cool though.

I know whatcha mean. If you think about it though, the Stars are pretty much the same size as the Toa Olda and they are the same price now. The Olda are arguably much more cool, interactive, and they had more pieces though to be sure. Just a thought on the size...

I guess from an action figure standpoint, in LEGO's mind, that makes sense. (But for a MOCist there's not much. For me I don't think I'd use the limb or torso pieces, so buying a Stars would give me feet, weapons, and a few pieces of armor.)

I like the black Kopaka sword in the Skrall the most. I don't do much with lime but his shoulder swords would also be good. And the black feet. And the head. I'll probably end up buying a few pieces on their own.
