Two simple words: toy shopping. I just casually just got Mata Tahu at Toys R Us if I remember.

Well I'd seen the six Toa sets in the old pamphlet things LEGO had, but then one day someone brought his Turaga Whenua to school (I think I was in third grade?), which is when I discovered that BIONICLE was more than just the Toa.  Then I went out and bought Turaga Nuju and Onewa, and that, as they say, escalated quickly.

I remember my mom just buying a bunch of DVDs from a store one day. When she arrived she bought Mask of Light and Legends of Metru Nui. I quickly watched them bc it caught my attention and my interest in Bionicle grew. The next day I went to Toys R Us and I saw the Bionicle Logo. After that I arrived to a shelf filled with Toa Metru 2-packs and Toa Hordika. I knew however that the Hordika were knew so I got those instead. I got the green one bc it was my favorite color, at the time.

  I was strolling through the toy aisle as I laid my eyes on something that would dig it's way into my heart: a Bionicle. I sprinted towards the gritty brown figure that I wanted oh-so dearly. Begging for it from my mom, she scaled the aisles checking for anything cheaper than 11 dollars. She, without hesitation, advertised the Vahki, prefferebly Nuurakh. I grabbed the red canister. I got home and opened the package, only to be met by tons of menacing looking gears and pins. Scared, I gave it to my parents to construct and was soon greeted by a fun, gimmick-y toy that I would love for the rest of my life; or the next few months as I lost him as I moved away from Florida, but stilll have remants of his leg. That is my story.

I was in some random store and they had this little cage without a top set up with a lot of BIONICLE sets in it, and I thought they all looked really cool. Well, my favorite color was (and still is) blue so I picked the blue one, and my parents bought me it. That set was, as you could assume, Gali, but I had no idea she was a girl until I really started getting BIONICLE sets. :P

I was about 7 or 8 and I would always get a toy when we went to Walmart. While we were in the checkout lane I asked my dad if I could get one of "those". He said alright and I grabbed Pohatu because he looked cool. Then I changed my mind and got Gali.It's the only toy I remember buying that well.

The January 2001 'Lego World Club' magazine had showed up on my doorstep, complete with a double-page spread devoted to the Toa Mata and comic one tucked inside its front cover. I was, shall we say, enamoured by the Bionicle sets - and even more so after reading Kopaka's exploits - and as soon as possible I badgered my mum into taking me to the local toy shop so I could buy Onua Mata.

 

I think I chose him because in the initial picture of him, his design really confused me, so I wanted to see what he looked like in reality XD

My first set was Gali as a toa mata. My aunt gave me her when I was four. I was into legos and other building toys then (I still am into legos, but not some of the other stuff like K-nex) Thus I was interested in Bionicle for a few years I then got Gahlok, Kohrak, Gahlok Va, and Toa Metru Nokama.

 

Shame I got so few back in bionicle's golden age, but I was young then.
