But Pohatu was a pain to pose because of the kicking foot... at first. Then I put that gear piece like in Pohatu Nuva

But they're not my favorites, though.

:D yes they were! you could roll them up into a little ball, make them lunge out with their freakishly large heads, switch out their uber-creepy Kraana, hang them from the top of their canisters... good times, good times. I miss villians as original as them and the Rahi. The Rahkshi were good, and the visorak were okay, but the rest were just too similar to the Toa characters to be much fun.
As for the original Bionicles, I loved them. Then the Metru came out, and I thought that the Nuva and Mata were kind of limiting because they didn't have knees and elbows. And then the Inika came out, and I thought that the Metru were limiting because they didn't look as cool as the Nuva and Mata and their knees and elbows weren't very good and they still had the obnoxious gear system. So yeah, I ended up liking the Inika build (in any of its incarnations) the best as far as playability, and the Nuva the best as far as looks. However, one of my two favorite bionicles is a Metru build, Toa Iruini.
(and if you're wondering, my favorite bionicle is the ORIGINAL Takanuva, because he's just so epic)

Unfortunately we have no gears/functions anymore (since like 2005). I'm so disapointed with it

I have the majority of the Bionicle sets from 2001-2005, but then lost interest in the 2006 stuff when they removed the gears and technic functions (my major complaints) and raised the prices (minor complaint). In 2006 I bought two of the Matoran and one of the Piraka, but they just didn't do anything for me. I found the Toa Inika particularly unappealing that year, and that was the end of my Bionicle days.
The original 6 Toa will always have a special place in my Bionicle collection as they are still my favorite.

Same with me.
Older Bionicle sets with some sort of function other than plain-old boring launchers were my favorites. Sure, the Toa Mata / Nuva models were clunky and hard to pose, but at least their gears could be re-used for something else.
I also liked the Toa Metru models, because they combined the pose-ability of recent action figures with gears; something I wish recent Bionicle figures could be like.
