When I went out shopping yesterday I had three goals:
1.) Buy my sister some ceiling stars
2.) Find her a desktop fountain
3.) Buy an iTunes giftcard.
But when I was strolling through Target I decided to check out the LEGO sections to see if Onua and Gali where there on clearance. Sure enough, they were! There were a decent number of Galis for ten dollars, but I got the very last Onua which was priced at 13. So of course I wasn't going to pass up this opportunity. Throwing caution to the wind, I bought it.
I also ended up not buying ceiling stars or an iTunes giftcard because at that point I ran out of money. And I didn't find ny desktop fountains. Oh well.... it was totally worth it. Because Onua is SO COOL. I liked how it felt like a combination of technic and classic BIONICLE, and that's owed entirely to the gear function. The shoulder pads can get in the way of his arms depending on how they're positioned (and the way they're attached is kind of iffy), but that's really my only complaint. (Well, that and the stickers. I just don't like stickers.) He looks big, he looks buff, he looks like Onua. He also has two trans purple bone pieces, but really I'm just glad to add a little more CCBS to my collection. I don't know when I'll be by Target again, but if I get there in time I'll definitely pick up
In other LEGO news, I finished building 10232 Palace Cinema which I recieved as a Christmas gift. I'll probably end up writing a review which if I don't post in LEGO discussion, I'll definitely put it here. In case anyone cared (probably not).
Now excuse me while I go fanboy over my new toy... and my first new BIONICLE set in six years!
