|And BTW... Makaru... I don't understand what about silver clashes with the other colors, really. Silver and black are the two colors that general work alongside any other color...|
...but really don't see anything wrong with silver. Just not sure it IS silver on the arms.
I think Mr. Munks pretty much summed it up here:
|The color scheme: I postulate that most people would agree with me whole-heartedly on this point. The mask is black, the shoulders are school-bus yellow, the torso and arms are mostly silver-gray, and the legs are dark green (and yet all of these have other colors thrown in as well, seemingly randomly). Clash? Hodge-podge? It's not appealing, and it doesn't make sense.|
But if that doesn't suffice, then I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.
|And as far Rhotuka usefulness -- they're not intended as Collectibles, so not sure why "collecting them all" is relevent...|
...That's why I say Rhotuka are too fun to get rid of; it's not for the sake of members who already own Rhotuka but for those who don't.
I guess it was this line that threw me off:
|QUOTE (Forums Frontpage)|
The forum to discuss the big six Bionicle collectibles: Kanohi, Krana, Kraata, Kanoka, >> Rhotuka << and Zamor spheres.
And Rhotuka are still readily available. Most stores still carry the Rahaga. They're what, $5 tops? If anyone's that desperate to get their hands on spiny things, there are several better ways.
|BTW, I thought, personally, that Voporak was an example of a clumsy color scheme, and was rather surprised that the reaction to it never really included that, and was quite positive. Of course, that's a combiner model, which is generally held to a lower standard than for sets, so that may explain it.|
Voporak was a combiner set. Of three other sets. With different colour schemes. It's hard to have a matching colour scheme with that set-up. Umbra is a stand alone set, so it can't use that as an excuse.
But again, agree to disagree, I suppose.
|And I beleive I've heard they didn't sell well, so apparently they didn't rock in most people's opinions. Could be remembering wrong though.|
Or that people aren't able to spend $90 on the spot. Their ability to 'rock' didn't factor in financially with most people.
