Bionicles are great. My nieces and nephews love them, particularly ages 5-12. They like to make the kits but also mix and match. Then they play with the toys they made to have battles.
Although some may say this set wasn't the greatest, I think a few things should be heard. Being a 67 piece set, the $10 price is actually really great! Think of Hero Factory, when $10 got you a 30-40 piece set. I think the over stature of him is really great! He's taller than the other Protectors. His colors are really nice! We get a new "bright-brown/burnt orange" color that we haven't seen in constraction before! But, if you don't want to be technical, it's nice just to see brown return because we haven't seen it since Velika or the brown Piraka from the original Bionicle in 2006! Some could argue Ogrum from Hero Factory in late 2012/ Early 2013 but he only had a little of a really dark brown. It's interesting to note the trans neon-green color associated with brown in this and the Master of Stone, Pohatu. It's a very risky color scheme, but it totally works! I think it's awesome! The weapon is actually the part I don't like as much. It's just a bit boring and does slightly limit the arm movement. I also think the idea of it is a little bland. I think it looked better with the Protector of Jungle where he had the elemental energy shooting out from the sides rather than in front. Not the hugest deal though. The mask is absolutely amazing. I love the colors of solid brown mixed with the trans neon-green! Overall, it's not the best Protector, but not the worst.
The new LEGO Bionicle game has a rich storyline and these buildable figures are sure to inspire some epic open-ended play. We also liked the strong build of these figures. Once put together this figure stays together—and that means kids can roleplay and manipulate the figure every which way without the disappointment of it falling apart on them.
Overall, the Protector of Stone is one of my favorites from the Protectors. I'm really liking the color scheme although many are going to hate it, and the recolors you can get from the set are quite nice. His weapon is one of the best looking, and he poses quite well with it. If I had to give complaints, the lack of back armor is a bit disappointing, but again you have to wonder what part of the set that we got would be cut otherwise to give him that missing element.
The Protector of Stone is a nifty little set that enhances the new Bionicle theme. He compliments the upcoming Pohatu set as another brown character and as another villager on the island. While story components are still roughly shrouded in mystery, the set itself is engaging enough. The conflict adds to its value and to ones collection, as amassing an army of Skull Spiders is only inevitable. The new pieces are a welcome addition to any collection. The overall set will be great to have standing next to the other heroes when all collected on display. And most importantly: we have Bionicle back!
If you're going to get a Protector set, you might as well get this one. It's got it's downsides to be sure, but the Elemental Sandstorm Blaster is phenomenal. Seriously, I can think of a few Toa who might be better off trading their weapons for his.
The Protectors may be small, but they often make up for it with heart and wit. In this case, the Protector of Stone remains remarkable poker-faced about the whole situation. He knows his body design is boring (and even annoying at times), but he also knows that he has a super cool weapon and a striking color scheme, and so is content with that. If you're looking for a shelf-warmer, he's probably not your guy. But there's some silver lining beyond his yawn-inducing silver parts, and his actionability make him a set worth picking up.
