This here topic is to discuss what, in your opinion, are the best and/or worst official combiners of the Bionicle franchise. (Excluding Gaardus, of course. That's just cheating.) Best: I would have to vote for the Kardas Dragon. Mainly because I like dragons. Worst: Again, excluding Gaardus, my personal least favorite combiners would be the 'Power-up' combiners from the new sets. While not really...awful, they really don't add much in the way of playability, and sometimes even hinder some of the Toa's original dang functions. So, what are your opinions?
When I first started joining conversations in this community, I came across a lot of people complaining about how much they disliked the so-called Inika Builds. At the time, I thought they were referring to the Toa Inika. I personally didn't much like the Toa Inika, and after seeing some of the sets that my friends owned, I decided not to buy any myself. But, as I engaged more in conversations, I came to realise that people were referring to everything post-2006 as "the Inika builds" and accusing Lego of "reusing the same designs". I'm sorry, what? I didn't see these complaints after the Toa Mata became the Toa Nuva, even though their body designs were nearly identical. Every year leading up to 2006 used the same designs as every other set in each year, but 2006 was the last year that happened. Look at the Barraki, or the Mahri. None of them were even remotely similar. They were all different, and unique, and the same goes for every set that came in later years. Look at the Phantoka, or the Mistika (especially the Makuta sets). And the Glatorian only carried on with the tradition of creative and innovative new designs. I really don't understand why there's so much hate, or why people seem to think everything after 2006 used the same builds. 2007 onwards were my favourite years for sets (excluding the Stars in 2010). Does anyone else feel the same way I do? Or am I the minority here?
