Set Review:# 8989 Mata Nui
Another set review. Bet you didn't know I was a Bionicle fan!
About this creation
Let's get started:

LEGO's description:
He fights for freedom!
Trapped on a strange world and stripped of his great powers, Mata Nui must unite a planet to save it from a great evil. Armed with a spiked Thornax launcher, scarab shield, and the powerful Mask of Life, Mata Nui leads the fight for freedom on Bara Magna!

Price: $12.99 USD.

Firstly, here are the new pieces. That "Thornax Launcher" is terrible...It shoots pretty far, but the Thornax fruit(?) falls out alot. Finally, a Mask of Life, seeing as that's what these guys have been chasing for the past... Four years already? That chest armor will be useful for MOCers, I'm guessing.

Here is the whole figure, as shown in the main picture.

Here he is posing with his "Thornax launcher", a terrible idea on TLC's part, and his "Scarab shield", a pretty cool piece(s) of plastic.

I got him to stand on one foot...

...And do a handstand.

A profile shot.

His front.

And finally, his back.


-Cool yellow color.
-Cool shield.
-Awesome new leg ankle armor.
-Cool hands, Though they don't give a very "Bionicle" feel.
-Inika feet in yellow.
-First ever Mata-Nui set! (Though it's not the special edition)

-Thornax launcher is terrible.
-Lack of armor on shoulders, just to be replaced by huge spikes is annoying.
-Upper leg armor could be better.
-BIONICLE BATTLE GAME, is just terrible.

Overall this is a great set, and You should definitely get it.

I hope this review has helped you decide on weather or not to get this set!

Until next time...
