Talking about kid-friendliness, the LEGO BIONICLE Protectors (which are the smaller figures in the new line-up) are all equipped with the new LEGO rapid-fire stud-shooters. As you will hear in the video Jang doesn’t like these very much, but I definitely do! Yeah, those little studs will be flying everywhere, but they are so much fun! LEGO has been adding these stud-shooters to other sets also, so you should end up with at least a few.
Another great advantage of the new LEGO BIONICLE system is the pose-ability of the figures. The joints are easy to manipulate in any direction you wish, and the figures can hold pretty much any pose with good balance. I’m actually really impressed by this because I have some of the old LEGO Knights Kingdom large figures and they are absolutely a nightmare to put into any kind of pose; they can’t keep their balance well unless put into very specific poses and parts will be falling off all over the place as you try to manipulate the limbs. The gear at the back of the new BIONICLE figures to move the arms remotely for fighting action (as seen in the video) is a fun feature as well. Both the easy movement of the joints and the pose-ability makes these sets so much more kid-friendly!
In the LEGO® BIONICLE® world, six Toa must seek the Masks of Power before they fall into the hands of the evil Makuta and his helpers. Children can easily build and rebuild durable action figures. Each Toa comes with an elemental mask and a golden power mask, as well as a mask pop-off trigger. Figures can also be combined to enhance powers. On the Mysterious Island of Okoto, fight Skull Spiders and their evil lord! Fend off their attacks with cool dual weapons and rapid fire shooters! LEGO BIONICLE sets offer children intuitive building, intense action play, cool weapons and the chance to save the world from evil!
