  1. Action Figure Forum Discussion

    Yeah, that's probably the one I'm going to go with, just not really sure of the materials to use. I don't mind spending a little extra, I just wish there were in-hand pictures of everything... maybe google will be my friend today.
  2. Action Figure Forum Discussion

    Might not be the right place, but I don't think it's worth a new topic... I'm finally getting around to building the G2 Makuta (ironic, I know!) and I'm finally looking at getting one of those Shapeways MOUPs. Any recommendations on the best one? There's way too many options, and then further types of materials etc. within those options. What's worked out for everybody else?
  3. I want to ride my chocobo all day... Love it. Cloud looks a bit like a cyclops, but it's cool. No way it can hold that Buster Sword up without a little help, though. The wolf armor pauldron is a great touch. Maybe smaller eyes would have worked better for the Chocobo? Doesn't really matter, it's great.
  4. [MOC] Aranya

    I like this, very BIONICLE-y, it works well by condensing various Technic bits that could have been expressed more basically otherwise. The underbelly also seems pretty clever, I'd like to see more angles on that. (not a huge fan of tires on the arms, but that's just personal preference)
  5. Haha, I dig it. Lord knows I might put in a creation in Category 2. I don't think I even have any Galidor parts? Maybe some spare from random purchases. (you can keep that art book though, I still need to organize giveaways and contests for my remainders...)
  6. Future Constraction Lines

    Only tangentially related (i.e. video games) but I always want constraction Kingdom Hearts. It'd basically be in the same vein of Star Wars constraction (Disney license etc.) but y'know, colorful. Constraction Mickey Mouse with a Keyblade, man. And for non-humanoids there's all the enemies (Heartless, Dream Eaters, whatever). #goals But yeah, I'd prefer something original over anything else. One can only hope soon.
  7. People always give the so-called "Inika Build" a lot of crap, but they actually moved on from it pretty quickly; 2007 had a lot of diverse body types and structures even when using those pre-fab torsos. But, to be fair, the Mistika Toa were much blander in terms of build than the Phantoka Toa before them (except for Onua Mistika, who I will absolutely defend as one of the most impeccably balanced sets of all BIONICLE) so I get the criticism in general.
  8. More or less the 2001 Rahi, right? I loved those, but even in today's Technic landscape, it would be hard to nail down the scale, since a lot of constraction's marketability (broadly speaking) came from impulse buys; I'd love to see an attempt though. Mostly I just want something original and colorful. Star Wars was awfully drab and dull.
  9. Oh you sweet summer children. I also liked the 05-07 playsets, even if I didn't collect many of them (after 05 they were too much of a budget breaker); they were this really fun, quirky way of fusing a bit of System and Technic/CCBS to interesting results. When you compare them to certain architecture and building sets that LEGO has done I can see why people might not be as amazed, but they definitely felt like BIONICLE sets, and a three year run is actually pretty impressive. Not to mention that LEGO also does plenty of sets at that price point to this day with the same amount of depth or features.
  10. So... RIP constraction then? Damned shame, but the writing was sort of on the wall for Star Wars figures. Hoping we get something original sooner rather than later. So much for that 4chan rumor that made the rounds earlier last year? =P
  11. 71040 The Disney Castle Discussion

    Having just finished it, took me about three days; two six hour days, and one that ended up being a 12 hour day. So expect to sink a fair bit of time if you have to constantly start and stop. Of course, I'm not used to super intensive build periods, so I was probably not being very efficient. The first "third" was the easiest for me, since working with big pieces is always faster. Once it got to the smaller bits it took more time, especially on correcting any mistakes. It's such a great set, though. Hopefully there will be another Disney-esque D2C set; all things considered, I'm not that into Pirates, so if that's what the next one is, I'll probably skip it. Totally down for another CMF line though!
  12. Bionicle 2016 Sets Discussion

    Just got Agil from the UK mag (imported). He's super adorable! Not much in the playability department, but he looks awesome when attached to Ekimu, and their inclusion of a shield holder for Ekimu was brilliant too.
  13. Still not loving the face molds, but definitely a lot of new interesting parts in there. Might pick up Chirrut for that bow.
  14. Metru Nui Chutes System

    This is really cool! I always liked the idea of the chutes as a subway system, but you're right, that map never quite covered it. You've done a great job detailing out everything.
  15. Star Wars Constraction 2016 Discussion

    Those (gold?) bow pieces, though... I want them.
