Hey everyone, I recently ordered a dark bluish gray Rhotuka spinner from a BrickLink seller in the US, along with other spinners and pieces. Since the package has no tracking and it's been over two weeks since it was shipped, I'm looking into obtaining a backup spinner in case this package never arrives. I paid $15 for it and I reckon I can pay as much for another. There is one other seller on BrickLink who's got the spinner listed (their store is currently closed) but they will not ship outside the US, so if there's anyone in the country who'd be interested in ordering and holding onto it for me, I'd be happy to cover your expenses, and then some. To clarify, I am referring to the original spinner available in early Rahaga Bomonga sets in 2005. As far as I know, they were seen only in the US.
Sorry to start another topic so soon. But seeing how that Topic was merely to discuss Kanohi I thought I'd make a topic for the other thing I've been wondering. Now to the point Rhotuka Spinners are only available to MU beings correct? Agori, Skrall, Glatorian, and Vorox even if they had a launcher like the Toa Hagah's Shields they would still be incapable of launching one am I correct? But even if they aren't able to launch them all beings are susceptible to the effects of the power right? I meant if it can be hit and has some organics or similar substance they would be altered in the case of Roodaka's or Scramble their minds like Gatherer has? Also I wonder can Great Beings create Rhotuka? After all they invented them for the MU and would know how to collect the type of energy. From what I've read if it's tangible a Rhotuka can hit and effect it based off its power. But I'm not 100% and thats why I've come to you guys. Let the discussion commence.
Ok, where to start....how about here?that's what the set includes. really not a whole lot. one of the cards can't be used by him. if you where able to use it, its effect would make him able to use it. Make of that what you will.the set contains pieces to build the spinner on his "poison whips" card.if you look closely you should see an issue. The vine/whip pieces are not alternating. when spun, it is off balance, even when nothing else is on it. I prefer it like this:when spun like this, it is much more balanced, except for the weapon, but I'll get to that.This is a (somewhat, but not really) better view of the cards.The most interesting one is his "poison whips" card. Rightly so, as its effect takes up most of the pieces.The weapons are decent, I like his flail, but that's because its new to me.it also shows that the little trans green snake whip attachments can be held as weapons. which is pretty neat. Adds a bit of play-ability to the set. (an area it needs a little help on.)here he is with his axe. I quite like the head mold, and the painted details are pretty nice.and I just realized i didn't get one of him holding his axe thingy. whatever you call it.though I can't say I enjoy that weapon too much, i's really heavy, and I have yet to find a balanced position that doesn't impede the spinner. And you have to use it with the spinner upgrades. (or another golden weapon, I can't say I know.)Here's a better view of the snake whips.I must say that these are probably my favorite part.Final thoughts:Good: nice minifigdecent pricecheaper than buying a new spinner.snake whips.flail/ball and chainBad: not a whole lot includedcan't use all the cards includedgold weapon could be betterdoesn't do much on its own.If you do not own a spinner I can't say this is for you. If you do, and want more weapons, figures, or cards, this isn't a bad way to get it. or you like the snake figures.Notes:the snake whips do not work on the original spinner mold. only the newer ones. The spinner and crown I used in the review was obtained in the starter pack containing Cole and Rattla. if you really liked it or something.How'd I do? is there a picture you'd like to see, did i miss something, or any other concerns, comments or complaints?Just post a reply and I'll get it taken care of.
