Actually I'd probably say the '01 McToran fling-arm kanoka discs, or, similarly, the Slizer fling arm things. They were fast, went pretty far, and were fairly easy to aim.

Kanoka disk launchers what what??
They were fun and classic collectibles, and since disks had been around since the time of the McToran, they had this old nostalgic Bionicle feel.
Second and third favorite launchers are the Cordak blasters and squid launchers respectively. Cordaks because they were like tiny nerf guns and I love miniatures, and squid launchers because I always thought they were really funny.
I lost a Rhoutuka spinner to the void behind our fridge once so I'm going to have to pass on that.

I'm voting the Midak, and then the Zamors. Midak, because of just how COOL it looks, and the range (One day at school, we were allowed to bring one toy in for the day. I took Phantoka Lewa, with a fully loaded skyblaster. My friend dared me to shoot it and see how far the ammo would go. It went all the way across the room.), and the Zamor because it's just so easy to incorporate into vehicles. Just look at the Swamp Strider and the Rockoh.

The Rhotuka spinners were my favorite. I always had a fun time launching them and watching my cats chase after them. I also liked how far they travel when launched. That was the best part about them.
What if the cats ate them?

Probably doesn't count as a launcher as such, but the 2001 Matoran were great at disc throwing. They were accurate and had good distance. I also really like the Midak Skyblasters, since they can hold 4 zamor spheres, and they look good - However sometimes the trigger could be a bit stiff and thus hard to use. The worst would probably have to be the squid launchers. I've never had one myself, but I've heard some bad things about them.

I liked the Matoran arms and the exo-toa rocket. With the exeption of Takadox and Nocturn, I didn't have any sets after 2004, so I can't comment on their launchers.
I still don't know how to make the squid launcher work properly.

The Midak Skyblasters where way too heavy for the sets, and so were the Corda blasters. I think I like the rohtuka spinners the best, because they worked really well and the effect was much more interesting than shooting something in a straight line. I didn't use them often though, because they would always get lost somewhere.
The matoran disk lauchers had something amiable about them. Idk why.

Zamor, They actually do pretty well, plus I was able to use those on my lego NXT when I was into that!

Rhotuka and the McToran's thrower arms. The Rhotuka because of their distance, and the thrower arms because they were placed on their respective users in the cleverest way, save maybe the visorak's RHOTUKA.

rhotukas disk throws on matorans arm or midak.
least favourite where the marhi ones. they looked cool but they couldent shoot more then a cm
As long as there is one bionicle fan out there there is still hope for bionicle to return. Keep faith. Bionicle is amazing.

I like Cordak Blasters (don't stone me) for their story and build, but Rhotuka Spinners for their memories.
Posted Jul 04 2014 - 03:22 PM
The Cordak blasters were pretty cool, since they had inner workings. But still, for the sheer fun of shooting, it's the Rhotuka.
Honorable Mention: those shadow-leech-balls on the Makuta Phantoka. Always fun to do a dive-bomb attack, plus they look really cool inside the Makuta.

For appearance, Midak Syblasters. However, to fire, I would choose Rhotukas, because who doesn't love spinning flying disks?

Rhotuka spnners all the way I love seeing them fly all about

I can only judge from my own hands-on experience, but I have to say the Rhotuka launchers are up there, tied with the original Matoran arms. The arms had the best accuracy to complexity of use ratio IMO. Rhotuka was easier to use, but it was difficult to get it where you wanted to go. Despite that, there's very little negative things I can say about those little spinners.

Rhotuka spinner launcher is my favorite. It was extremely enjoyable to use and you could make custom launchers of your own without much of a problem. They were also simple to make and easy to use once you got the hang of it.

Midak Skyblaster. It's very powerful and effective aganist Makuta(because it shoots spheres of light).
Posted Jul 15 2014 - 06:23 PM
I really liked the Thornrax launchers, they were easy to aim and had great accuracy compared to some of the others

Mine is definitely the Rhotuka spinner. You've got to love launching those on a windy day and seeing them fly!
Posted Jul 24 2014 - 06:55 PM
I'm quite partial to the Kanoka Launchers, although the Zamor Launchers are surely my favorite design wise.
If I had to choose, I'd probably choose Kanoka because something about the look of Vakama's Firey-jetpack-disk-launcher just hit all the right things to make me like it

In terms of functionality, this is how I'd rank them (From most to least):
1. Kanoka Disk launcher: It's the perfect blend of range and accuracy!
2. Midak Sky blaster: It was quite heavy for poor Lewa nuva and he would always fall down while Pohatu laughed at him
3. Zamor Sphere launcher: The inika magazine didn't work well, the top ball would fall out if you aimed it but at least it had good range.
4. Rhotuka Launcher: It was freaking amazing to pull the cord and watch it whiz around the house but... I lost one rhotuka to the roof. I think it's still there.
5. Thornax Launcher: The jaws looked bad but it served its purpose and I like that the ammo is rubber so it doesn't hurt to get hit in the eye compared to the plastic zamors.
6. Cordak Blaster: I liked the gatling gun design but I never liked how the ball joint could easily break or the one centimetre range.
7. Squid Launcher: This was an idea that should NOT have made the final cut. The ammo could not be launched without knocking the model over or dropping it.
8. Kohlii Stick: I bought the 2003 Macku set and I remember seeing Macku throw her puck by twisting her gear on the box. I built her as soon as I got home and when I twisted the gear, the puck just fell down without moving a single millimetre.

The Midak Skyblaster, it had the most accuracy and looked pretty neat. A close second would be the Thronax Launcher though, Thornax fruits are awesome.

Thornax launcher because it was lightweight, easy to use, and just generally fun to play with.
