I was thinking (a rare occurrence these days) and I got interrupted by the idea of listing my favorite Bionicle sets over the years. So here's for stuff you think up while you're supposed to be taking notes.
Favorites, based off set design, not storyline.
Toa Mata: Gali, Lewa, Pohatu.
All the Toa Mata are just classic favorites, so I won't even bother choosing between the three listed.
. Just because.
, mostly because he was the first one I could get.
Rahi: Of the two I got, I preferred the Tarakava
. Since all the Bohrok are pretty much the same, I went with the one with the coolest shields.
Bohrok Va: Lehvak Va
. Love those machetes.
Toa Nuva: Lewa
. I really don't have a favorite out of this bunch, but I like Lewa's color and weapons.
Bohrok Kal: Nuhvok Kal
. Ah, it was just the first one I got, and the black and silver went together well.
. Again, it's the green.
Matoran 03: Um, Takua
, I guess. I wasn't very impressed with the design, but the masks and colored pieces were great.
Toa Metru: Onewa
. His weapons are sweet, as is his mask design.
. Mostly because its green, I suppose.
Metruan: Ehrye or Nuhri
Toa Hordika: None. Only thing that was great about them was the skull piece, really.
. Just because of the yellow eyes. The Visorak were bummer sets too.
. Great color scheme, awesome head design, wicked weapon. Yeah.
Toa Inika: Hewkii
. His mask rocked and he had chains.
Voya-Nui Matoran: Garan
. Mostly because of the hordika skull pieces. Except for Dalu, all the Voya-Nui Matoran were awesome.
. Great design, especially considering he's named after a manta ray.
Toa Mahri: Hewkii
. A more unique design with lots of good blade pieces, as well as a unique way to hold the Cordak.
Mahri Matoran: Dekar
. I guess it's because of th yellow.
Toa Phantoka: Pohatu
. The orange is good, but the propellers are an awesome idea.
Makuta Phantoka: Chirox
. I dunno, his wing design looks good.
Matoran of Light or Shadow: Tanma
. For their colors, I suppose.
Toa Mistika (estimated): Tahu
. Basic design is overused but not too bad. Rotating blade looks good.
Makuta Mistika (estimated): Bitil
. Both have good designs, I'm just not sure yet.
Titan that I Have from 03 onward: Keetongu
. New color (at the time) and useful design.
Special Mention: Boxer
. Expensive but very intricate.
Procrastination is complete. Retinas have been burned out due to multitude of colors.
