Rolling with the Bohrok on this one. The sets were quite cool (not that the Rahkshi weren't as well, but the Bohrok man), and they honestly had a more menacing presence in the story than the Rahkshi ever did. They also had a much better origin story than "worms of evil in suits of armor" (though it started off looking that way, funnily enough).Bonus: you can easily portmanteau bro into Bohrok to make 'Brohrok', but can you do that with Rahkshi? No? Point for the Brohrok.

I voted Rahkshi because of their larger variety of powers, and their affiliation with the Brotherhood of Makuta.

Both are rip off. You have no idea how many I bought just to get the Krana and Kraata I want >:o Just kidding :PIMO I like Rahkshi more, because they wreck more cities then an army of Bohrak :P

99.9% of BIONICLE fans forgot about Podu. If you happen to be the 0.1% that still remember him, copy and paste this into your sig.

Gotta go Bohrok for me; their characteristics and involvement in the story was much more in-depth, and I loved the way that we slowly discover more about them and just how important they are.They are also generally really awesome, what with launching facehugger-brains and their ability to turn into balls.

Bohrok, simply better as sets and story wise also in my opinion. I mean the Krana were just so much cooler in comparison to the Kraata. Plus I can't stand the leg design of the Rahkshi, specifically the lower legs, they're just so hideously long and...ugh I just don't like them at all.

That's a tough one, I love Rahkshi beyond all belief but I think Bohrok win this one. The story with the Bohrok was amazing and as a set they were solid. The Rahkshi were cool set pieces to put on display, but with the way their staff and body were built, they didn't have all that much playability (though play with them I did).

Rahkshi for me, simply because I got them right when they came out, but didn't get my first Bohrak until a few years ago.Besides, they got a movie. cool.png-Inferna
Bohrok were in that movie too. :P
The fact I forgot they had an appearance shows you how memorable they were to me. :P-Inferna

LOL. Guess so. But the real awesomeness was Piraka. Piraka in Miramax-style would be awesome. (Don't get me wrong, I prefer TLR style, but for the Piraka, I'd want to see a whole movie with them and the Inika in Miramax style.)

Bohrok all the way! I like my sets to have functions (which is why post-06 is just sad to me), and the Bohrok have three! They could move their head to strike, smack their eye to steal/wear their Krana, and they roll into a ball for display! We continually learn more about them, and they're just mad destruction machines with a single purpose: clear Mata Nui.The Rahkshi were kinda dull. They had lots of powers, but it almost makes them seem OP. Sure they could swim their arms like any canister set up to 04, and I'll admit I enjoyed smacking their heads to fling the Kraata, butsetwise, kinda dull and ugly. Storyline wise, they're powerful armies of disposable minions that were way too common, but not well expanded on.

Bohrok. I could always make a ball of them and hit my little brother in the head with them from about 12 feet away. I was pretty accurate as well. :P The Rahkshi.....well, I didn't like the arm-gear-thing. Reminded me a bit too much of the Dark Crystal(Props to those who know what I'm talking about.)

Bohrok, because the sets were amazing. The simplicity and elegance of the design combined with the brilliantly excecuted functions make them much more interesting sets for me than the rather plain Rahkshi. Story-wise, I like them about the same. However, I preferred the Rahkshi when six of them were a serious threat on their own, before they got demoted to mass-killable mooks.

Bohrok all the way. Their Krana make them awesome. I loved how Lewa had a Krana on and was taken over. (Poor Lewa he always ended up taken over). Also they could roll into balls, which is awesome.The name of this thread makes me want to make a spoof of the song Martians Vs Goblins, but with Bohrok Vs Rahkshi. Except that song has lots of curse words so it would never work.

Bohrok were very cool, but simple drones, while Rahkshi were far more evil. Bohrok can be controlled by any good or bad people, while Rahkshi can only be controlled by Makuta. (See Destiny War for the Bohrok/Rahkshi fight in Metru Nui) So yeah I like Rahkshi better.

Definitely Rahkshi. I like them because of variety. Bohrok? Meh. Only 11 powers
11? I beg to differ! There were six. Now if you're counting the Kal, it's 12, because acid is not vacuum. (A common mistake around here is Lehvak being the Bohrok of Air.)
Okay, simple mistake/misconception. I still like the Rahkshi for having a load of powers. Aren't they all the same though, being completely useless without their Krana/Kraata.
