More Bionicle Stars Photo Reviews

Part of my Black Friday shopping was to stop at Toys R Us at 2:30 in the morning. They didn't have much of anything new (beyond the 2010 leaks I've already reviewed) so I consoled myself by picking up two more of the Bionicle Stars canisters. Since this is the last wave of Bionicle (LEGO has discontinued the theme) I figured I'd pick up the white and black offerings - the two colors I'd usually buy from each wave anyway.

I also picked up a couple of earlier 2009 sets while out shopping, but I don't know how much interest there'd be in my reviewing those. I should probably work on getting ahead on the comic instead...

I think the Bionicle line should've been shelved quietly and without the 2009 releases. Don't get me wrong, I liked the Fire Bionicle Chris posted first, but the rest are just total MEH.

They do have some cool weaponry and the occasional useful other piece, but mostly they seem to have devolved into an assortment of figure parts exclusively suited to Bionicle building and with little interconnectivity with normal LEGO parts. Even Technic has better connectivity than Bionicle, whether it's studless or not.
