Hello errbuddy. Haven't been active here as of late, but that doesn't change the fact that I'm a BZPeep. Finally managed to get my hands on Onua and Gali, so I just thought I'd drop in and give my thoughts on 'em. Gali is certainly a much stronger build than I had anticipated. Pretty solid. I thought she would end up being my least favorite of the new Toa designs (not that I hate any of them ). Boi was I wrong. I didn't realize this from any of the pics or reviews, (which I didn't read very many or much of to begin with,) but they reallly succeeded in making her appear feminine for once, or at least more feminine than the other Toa. Didn't think a slightly shorter axle minus a small technic bar in each shoulder was all it took to make a build more feminine. Luckily, she isn't too feminine... *shudders* Anyway, I didn't think an extra pair of friction gears would've made a difference either, but now that I've experimented, I'm aware that she really can't lift her super clunky trident without them. As far as dual functions go, I'm very satisfied with Gali's. I knew she could use her trident head as flippers, but I wouldn't of guessed she can even hook them together for a mermaid fin of sorts. As for her standings among the Toa, I'd say she's certainly not my least favorite. That place now belongs to Pohatu, even though I love his design (minus the trans-green). I was iffy on the mask design at first, but I've since gotten over it. It's still the only 2015 Toa mask I'm not infinitely satisfied with though. Lewa's is close, but I'm still pretty darn satisfied. She at least LOOKS like the female of the group this time around, so I'm satisfied with her design all around. It's also noteworthy that she has no insanely out-of-place color contrasts. (I'm looking at you, Kopaka.) Onua and Kopaka were the sets I was looking forward to having the most. When I first saw there designs, I was all like They're definitely my favorite Toa redesigns out of the bunch. Love the spear and shield with Kopaka. Fits him well. Not to mention he's ripped now. That's points in the right direction in my opinion. Onua, on the other hand, makes Kopaka look like a friggin toothpick. I've said it a million times before, I'll say it again, nothing suits Onua better than a warhammer. He should've had one to begin with. Also really love the dual function. It probably makes the most amount of sense out of any of them, and it also reminds me of Whenua Metru to a degree. They also managed to give him the hunched over effect, which I didn't notice in any of the pics. I'll never get over Onua's head coming out of his chest. But the arm function was what took me aback the most. I understood what people meant when they said the Toa had friction gears to add to the friction of their gear functions, but when people said Onua had a ball-in-socket joint to replace that, I drew a blank. I had no idea how that would work. But now that I've seen it, I must give credit to the resourcefulness and ingenuity of the design team. It's a truly remarkable little gizmo. It makes Onua as strong-armed as he looks. Now that's what I call ingenious. I was not disappointed by either of these sets. I was even surprised by them in some respect. Let's hope the completely bare-boned (literally) sets of the summer wave live up to the legacy of the Toa.
