So! New "favorites" topic: what are your favorite metallic bionicle pieces? Gold, silver, iron grey (or whatever they called those) chrome, and all the varieties within those categories. I really liked the variety of gold they used with the Golden Kanohi in 2001. I was a bit saddened when it didn't make an appearance again. I did enjoy the bronze gold that Takanuva and Lhikan used, although I actually was probably expecting Lhikan to use pearl gold instead, since his first catalog description said "gold" which was later turned to "bronze" but oh well. Once Brutaka and the Piraka came onto the scene, now THAT was some gold work collecting. It seemed shinier, and had lots more kick to it in my opinion. Silver had lots of ups and downs for me. I recently gotten the chrome Hau which I think is the best silver mask one could get period. The silver Mata kanohi were nice, but seemed more grey than real silver. The protodermis masks seemed better fitting for the job, I was able to collect Onua's which made me super happy. Not much in my opinion to say about other metallic pieces. The dark grey pieces that came on Makuta were fun, and they made a comeback with Avak and Hakann... can't remember if I've seen them anywhere else. Last but not least, who can forget the metallic colors of the Krana-Kal. They deserve an honorable mention just for the variety of colors you got, especially with the green and blue. But that's me. What about you guys? Is there a type you love using in your MOCs, or that you just like more than others throughout the years?
My plan was to come here with a batch of the tangerine Mirus, but that was a fail. They completely resisted the dye. I'll try that again next week. Poking around, I made this pakari And 6 of these TDGMs (Trans Dark Green Miru) Anyway, they're for sale or trade for (I don't know what... maybe knockoffs or Bayer bricks)... Also, all that German stuff is in boxes, ready to go. If you were one of the bidders, please let me know if you still want it. Apologies in PMs, Gotta run.
