"Pixal I need my car"-Master Lloyd in Season 8
" This set is a great way to get some great figures for season 8 and the greatest of Master Lloyd's vehicles in my opinion. Here are the Pros and Cons:
Pros:
Great figures
Good price to part ratio
Oni mask of Hatred included
Very large seating for Master Lloyd
A small bike to chasing down
The overall look and feel of the Nightcrawler
The great speed and attack mode function
Cons:
When you push the button while stationary the a stud might shoot when you do not want it to
The bike is very small compared to the Nightcrawler
Nothing for Nya
Overall a great set! "

My First Bionicle!
" As the title states this is my first Bionicle. However it is far from my first figure as I have tons of Hero Factory sets. I picked this one up at the LEGO store right after Christmas last year. I chose him as I really liked his character from the old books I read, and I love flight and so yeah. The set amazed me at how complete it is compared to a similar size Hero. The gearbox is okay they are kinda fun but I do not like all the technic involved. My favorite part of the set is the flight feature. Having a figure that can fly is really fun. Its not my first character that can fly but the first one that can transform into flight mode; unless you include Jet Rocka. The flight mode was hard to get right as the instructions showed only how to get the wings on the arms but not how to set up the wings into flight position. The box did not show flight position either it took me quite awhile to do it right but when I did it was epic!
I recommend that people that like a good transport mode that you get this set.

My First Villain!
" I got this set in September as I wanted some good fights with my Toa.
The box really drew me in with the bow seen rather then the spear. I got this one first as I wanted the bow on a Villain.
The build was normal and I have become used to it after building all six Toa. I do not like all the technic I wish that they were more like Hero Factory in the building category.
The Bow:
The bow is a nice one but I find that the six shooter is not that powerful compared to a ball shooter that Hero Factory used. The fact that all you are shooting is small plastic pellets compared to large ball going very fast makes the bow seem weak. The shooting part itself is like a much better Cordak blaster from 2007.
The Spear:
This weapon is the main one I use as it seems more powerful. The prongs and hooks on the blade are a nice touch and make it useful as a weapon as you can grab mask from enemies without much hassle. I like how it can mount on the back of the body and serve as a sidearm.
The Skull Warrior:
The mask is perfect and really helps make this look like a creepy skeleton like he is. The use of the bone pieces that look like bone pieces are amazing as it makes the figure look skinny and small in a good way rather then just a lack of armor.
I actually got the Lord Of Skull Spiders first and he stinks in his role as a Villain hence the title.
Overall:
This is a good set and really goes well with Kopaka and is a good buy for people wanting to play with these figures. I think that the price is okay but I remember getting figures this size for $10 rather then $15.
Good buy for a collector wanting the skull army.

A must have Bionicle Set!
" I got this set for Christmas, and it was a great gift. I think that this set is a must have for Bionicle fans that want to have a good collection. Before the Pros and Cons I will talk about the set in general.
Mask Maker:
The gold color scheme makes me think of Rocka from Hero Factory, and that is a good thing in my book as he was my favorite.
He looks like a Protector so he fits in as his role of leader of all the tribes, rather then just one.
The hammer of power is a great weapon as you can have him shoot a barrage of fire at an enemy before going for a mighty hammer strike with the action feature. I was at first a fan of Hero Factory so I like that you can pose the arms almost like normal but still have a cool action.
The shield is great and not great at the same time, first that saw piece is overused as a shield, however the use of the golden piece on top cover most of the saw piece and you get a really cool royal shield which Mask Maker needs.
The mask is great as again it is golden like Rocka so for me at least it looks like a great hero should. I like it better on him then the mask of creation as it looks more normal.
The chest is another great thing with the new armor add on in gold along with the queen beast shoulder pads.
Skull Grinder:
Now here is where the set is really cool with other sets. It is a Villain so powerful that he can wipe out all the heroes in one blow.
I really like his staff I can make Toa go flying. He is finally a strong Villain unlike the Lord of Skull Spiders. I fell like he could take out some Toa and win the battle for evil, especially with his army of skull warriors.
His mask is very important in making him look evil along with all the bony pieces that go in to his frame.
His sword is great as it can serve as a secondary weapon fine and can help him take on six Toa and win.
The gear system really helps this figure but also hurts it. He can make his staff go up and down a bit but the figure can do some poses fine but often it will fall back down. If i were making this figure I would have the gear system the same with the grey round pieces on both sides still but have the main arm not connected to it have the small sword work.
The horns really add to his character and help him add to the evil type of guy he really is.
Finally the mask of creation:
As I have been a fan of Hero Factory first I am not a mask collector like some people are as in Hero Factory you call them helmets and move on with the figure. Bionicle reboot sets have lots of extra masks included and so this mask is like the mask of mask in the story. I think it looks really cool with all the runes on it and the detail. The cool thing is the set comes with a special mask stand to hold it while they fight over it. the stand is simple but works fine and shows how important it really is.
Overall I really like this set as it let me have great battles with my Toa in addition to giving me a new Rocka to really like and enjoy.

Mighty Villain!
" This is a great skull Villain set. I am going to list out a few key points people complain about:
The legs that cannot move, I like this fact as the legs cannot crumple underneath like with the skull spider lord. It makes a strong base.
The tail: it is really cool and can hit a figure well in front of it if you lean the tail foreward. Overall the mask are really cool and the hands can grab things like Pohatu's Boomerangs.
This set was a great gift to me.
You should get this set if you like Bionicle.

Like in the show!
" This set is great, it has room for the whole crew, and can defend itself from tie fighters! Features include a great weapons rack, room for extra shooter ammo, twin spring-loaded shooters and loads more! I love the fact that it can dock with the phantom, its great the one problem is that it means that it is ugly from the back without it there so folks I would get the phantom to like I did. All the gun turrets are great and can move so you feel a lot like your in a millennium falcon. one problem is that it can get boring with only one stormtrooper included, also he has no gear other then the basic blaster. Some of the plates break of easy so it is rather hard to keep together but it is a minor problem. Tip if you have an Ezra figure you can make his cool lightsaber by taking a standard binoculars part and a blue blade.
Pros and Cons:
Pros:
great rebel figures
lots of turrets
lots of panels to open
can dock with phantom
escape pods
springloaded shooters
trap door with holocron
rack with spring shooter ammo
Cons:
can break fragile panels
one stormtrooper not much gear
needs phantom to really be complete
does not come with Sabine Wren
not lots of rooms inside like in show (this is OK as it is really hard on LEGO to want/need that feature if it were so it would be twice as much money)
That's about it the cons are minor and i would say get it if you love the show if not well, not really All in all a great buy.

First Tahu!
" I loved Hero Factory and collected many and was sad when it was canceled. Then I saw the new Bionicles! I new I had to get him so here he is! After waiting a long time he finally came! After a nice build right away i notice that he is tall about as tall as Furno XL, and is very stiff at the ankles so I was not happy as he would not balance his feet well and you would have to move the feet to balance yourself. Anyway he has a cool function with the dual swords and surfboard! That new feature is something old fans of the line will know while new ones like me have never seen its like before. All in all it was a good deal and well worth it. Now the pros and cons.
Pros:
great swords
cool surf board
nice small swords
really suited up look
skull spider
gold mask
Cons:
stiff ankles (they have the rubber connector on the ankles)
shoulder pads
gear function ( bionicle fans will love this but being a HF fan at first i am new and do not like it)
