Set wise, I have been looking at the Makutas and their respective Matoran. Mutron and Vican (that's the combination, correct? I'm pulling those names out of my head...) are a cool combination. Lime green and black... a great color scheme, just as long as the lime green doesn't break. Has the lime green of 08 been fragile too? I thought I was exempt from the problems, but both Hahli and Ehlek have cracked or cracking limb pieces... I'll get to that later... anyway, I also like Mutron's claw setup, with a ton of Mantax's claws. His Matoran assistant isn't that bad either, with claws galore. And the price is about $15, correct?
Wait, hold the press! $15? The regular Makuta are $10. Oh, well, Mutron's more expensive... but wait again, he has a Matoran set in addition to his great Makuta-ness. The Matoran are, what, $6? So $10 + $6 = ... $16? Maybe more depending on taxes and stuff. But Mutron and his pal are $15... and they're bigger with more pieces than their canister compatriots!! Thus, that set is a great deal with savings... it seems more expensive, but it's not. Now, I know it's hard to find, so that means it's a store exclusive... what store again? Because if I happen to come across that set... I'll buy it and forget about the other Makuta. The Phantoka Makuta sets are intriguing, but since I am focusing on Toa and trying to conserve cash, I think I might go with this titan.
For Toa, I think I'll pick up all six (eventually) and maybe one Matoran just for kicks? Any preference on the wittle Matoran... I'm thinking Tanma, unless he's got the "curse of the weak lime green plastic".
Now, for pictures...
Now, I always like the zamor, but not the way it attached to the Matoran Mahri. When put on their shoulders, it just doesn't look too good, and the stupid zamor (or solidified air sphere) kept falling out. First, I thought I'd remove the rejected zamor design (let's face it, the Midak are much cooler uses of zamor) and place a Cordak blaster on his shoulder. I attached it by snapping a socket joint on the back of Dekar's arm, and then using the ball joint on the Cordak to attach the weapon to Dekar. Well, he looked formidable with his spikes and shoulder Cordak blaster, but he was unbalanced. So, when his spikes went to Defilak, I just let him hold on tight to those Cordak. Now he can hold them, fire them easily, and swing them like clubs. (Batter Up!) Seeing his little design makes me think that maybe Kongu Mahri wasn't that bad after all, with his two Cordak blasters. (But not enough for me to want to get him) Now lets see even the mask of life heal something after Dekar has blasted it to smithereens. This is how the Matoran should've guarded Mahri-Nui.
Well, this whole thing seems kinda worthless, as nobody's replied in the last three days I've posted these, but I have the pictures so I'm going to continue posting them, whether you like it or not. Yes, I am totally willing to make you suffer if that's what the situation calls for. BURN! Hahah... hum. I think I'll go back to having a coughing fit now.
