Do you feel there is a set or many sets that were really underated ? Like sets everybody seems to be complaining about but

you think is great ? Or a set no one talks about but you think is genius ?

 

For me, it would be the Turaga. These were pure genius to me. They look simple but had many pieces and a great design as well as a cool function. Also like the colors they choosed for them.

 

What is your underated set(s) ?

I kind of feel like Kongu Mahri and Nuparu Mahri were underrated somewhat. They made not of had the best body designs, but I still thought that they were really cool sets.

The Vahki. I think they're pretty cool and deserve more love.

Underrated... People use this word to describe something they like and others don't.
For me, that would be Jaller Inika due to his mask design and ability, heat-lightning manipulation and a mentality waaaay cooler than Vakama's. He is particularly similar to Tahu in that aspect, actually.

This topic is about the sets, though.

Anyway ... does Voporak count? I think Voporak counts. He's pretty awesome as a set (since he was released in a boxed form), but I don't think he gets much love.

Skopio.  That thing was amazing, but I know a lot of people that didn't like it.

Hewkii Mahri. He's not without flaws, but he was my personal favorite of the Mahri.

Karzahni. The model isn't great, perhaps, but it has lots of cool pieces, and several uniquely colored ones.

Some people(or more) dislike the Inika, but I like them. There's not too much to dislike about them imo, apart from Hahli's mask. =P

I'll have to agree with all of this. And yeah, Vaporak counts.

What I like about Vaporak is that he's one of the rare boxed combo sets that acutally look like a titan-sized set on his own,

and not only a combo.

I think Krekka looks pretty awesome with so many pieces building up his torso, also his face looked menacing just like a Dark Hunter should be!

I'd say the McToran. I think it's understaded what awesome colours they had, like purple, sand blue, teal and yellow. The pieces are also so esthetically pleasing, especially the ancient-looking head piece. It's strange how the characters are so well appreciated, but the sets have so few reviews.

As long as there is one bionicle fan out there there is still hope for bionicle to return. Keep faith. Bionicle is amazing.

I dunno, maybe the Bohrok-Kal. You can never have too  many Bohrok.

Sidorak, Roodaka, and Keetongu are some pretty nice sets. Most notably, they were the last titans before the Inika and Piraka torsos came out, and thus the last set of titans with completely custom made torsos (there are some individual exemptions). Not that later titans were all bad, but I honorably hold these three guys as the last of a sort of extinct breed of sets.

I feel like Pridak should've gotten more love, what with his largely unique torso build and moveable waist. Sure, Maxilos did the waist part better, but for a canister set, Pridak was very well designed, I think.

The Titans of Bara Magna. 

 

They had a lot of cool pieces, and in my opinion excellent design and playability, plus Toa Mata Nui was awesome!

The Bohrok Va. These guys introduced interesting variations to the Turaga built with moveable feet and necks, and were also adorable! Menacingly adorable, but still! >\^^/<

 

I'd say the McToran. I think it's understaded what awesome colours they had, like purple, sand blue, teal and yellow. The pieces are also so esthetically pleasing, especially the ancient-looking head piece. It's strange how the characters are so well appreciated, but the sets have so few reviews.

I must disagree; I think the McToran are some of the most universally beloved BIONICLE sets of the entire series. They don't have many reviews probably because they are quite simple, which is part of their appeal, but also leaves not a whole lot to be said of them. They also weren't sold in stores, so people didn't really need a second opinion on something that they didn't directly purchase (except for secondhand websites, which admittedly is where most fans get them).
