Quoting The Lego Obsessionist
What sets are worth buying two or more of? I think any set with rare colors is great to get multiples of.
Rare colors and of course rare pieces. Mata Nui(not the special edition) had some pretty good pieces involved in it, along with his awesome yellow color. I got two of those. Another one if the vehicle that Pohatu drives..It has lots of blades and other silver weapons. I only got one though. Permalink
I tend to get multiples of the smaller sets, being budget conscious. Bigger ones i'm not too worried as sometimes you can get cunning workarounds, so unless you have a specific build in mind that requires you to say, get a second Fenrakk head then by all means.
No I didn't get a second Fenrakk.
If you have an inexhaustable amount of funds then you can pretty much do what you want, but it is hard to plan for future builds. Generally if there are specific parts I need, you can always purchase them online. Permalink
Jeez, i wish i had that kind of dough, i save up MONTHS for a certain set, ussually i just get them as presents. Right now i'm waiting to go get the big SKIRPO TANKMONSTER!!! for the treds.
If i could get multiples, though, i would definatly get like 6 of every single one i have. esp, the Rahkshi <3 ^.^ Permalink
Well Agori are always nice for parts, they have a low price, and enough rare, newish pieces to make them worthwhile! Tarduk, Zesk, and Berix are pretty good for pieces, as are Starz Gresh and Starz Tahu (mostly for the snazzy new armor pieces!) Permalink

Maybe, but Agori limbs are not that good, unless you plan non-humanoid MOCs. They help in giant joints a lot, though. Permalink

True, I can't stand the Agori Limbs, but aside from that, the bodies are actually large enough to make Toa scale, and the masks, and weapons, and other elements are very useful! But you're right, the limbs are nice for giant joints, mostly to connect the thighs to the torso, as I've found. Permalink
I just now noticed that if you get the same bionicle for your birthday..... then open it. I'm so dumb, but I buy or trade pieces with my friends. The most of two bionicles I've gotten were 2 rahagha Norik, XP. Permalink
if i had gotten 2 sets of anything i would get 2 sets of the ackar and mata nui and gelu sets and 2 sets of all the piraka and inika (fave ones of bionicles!) and 2 sets of all the stars sets and 2 sets of all the mahri and baraki sets Permalink
I got two of every Toa Mata, two white Visorak, two Pridaks, and two of every Stars set. And I think I may have gotten two Nuparu Inika sets. I think Baranus is worth getting two of, I just don't have the money. Permalink
