This set is very good when it comes to cool looking legs. The color combination was extremely weird, and it made him look out of place. I liked the legs of this set, and also the way they built the arms. When combined with Ketar creature of stone, Pohatu looks a bit like a squid or a vortex like thing. I like the boulder, although it could have been textured the same way as the normal mask. The gears to turn the torso turn smoother than Kopaka's gears for turning the torso. When you put on the golden mask, the color scheme goes crazy and he looks like a T - shirt dude. They could have made the chestplate the same color as the mask as well as the upper legs, but instead they made a strange tan colored blob. Also, the printing on the chestplate is pixilated which looks really ugly and reminds me of an explosion. In the end, this set is not perfect, yet not bad at all. Please tell me what you think.

First off, I was a little disappointed with 70785 Pohatu. He was about 19 pieces less than the other Toa that has the least pieces. He was also shorter than everyone else. Plus, the whole BIONICLE 2015 series reminded me too much of Hero Factory, not classic BIONICLE.But this version completely fixed that. It uses a lot of Technic pieces for the body, arms, and weapon! He's 24 pieces more than 70785, and this time HE has more pieces than Gali and Lewa! The tops of his arms look great with shoulder pad type things, made completely out of Technic. His legs though, are still basic Hero Factory. Surprisingly, his body isn't one piece, but a new torso part combined with more Technic pieces. His height is much bigger than the other version, as seen in the pictures. Pohatu's new mask is not my favorite though. The silver on top almost makes it look like he has grey hair, and the features don't look 'tough' enough to be Pohatu. His Golden Unity Mask of Stone looks pretty cool, but the gold color doesn't really match the rest of him. I haven't bought Ketar, but I would assume that the gold doesn't really match with his silver mask either. His armor color has gone from brown to tan, probably just to stay camouflaged in the desert. Functions:The mask pop-off function still works great, but the translucent eyes piece was changed a little. Probably to make it even easier to use the function, or so that there isn't a long piece poking off the back of his head. The rotating torso mechanism also works very well, as it used two new pieces. His build is sturdy enough that he doesn't fall over every time you use it. The crystal flail looks pretty cool, but I detach it sometimes so that it can be a sword and mace. There really isn't anything I don't like about this set-I highly recommend it to anyone.

I'm partial to Pohatu, always have been, and I think the set's decent (it's miles better than, say, Pohatu Phantoka). But compared to 2015's line, he doesn't have as much personality. Even when combined with Ketar, he doesn't look that much better (unlike some of the other Uniters).

I do like pohatu as a standalone set. I think the trans neon green is a bit unnecessary and I would have liked to see the three browns play a more active role here, because I feel like too many colors are fighting to be that "dominant" color. Design wise, he's not too awful, I do like the shoulder build and range of articulation, though from a back view he suffers a bit. Proportions aren't bad, and I find that his extremely detailed torso looks somewhat acceptable in the dark tan, though I wish we had seen some more dark tan to serve as the primary color, possible use those dark tan Vorox armor shells from Ketar.

For all he does good, Pohatu Uniter suffers from many of the same problems that plagued Pohatu 2015. It's great to see brown again, and tan makes a surprise inclusion, but there's not enough of either. His build is solid, but he doesn't introduce anything new that you wouldn't find in, say, Lewa. And the weapon, while amusingly silly, just doesn't feel tough enough to use in a fight. Perhaps the most baffling thing is not making his Skrall armor piece tan, when the part totally exists (and is used in Ketar). It would have gone a long way, even if some other sacrifices would have needed to be made in color distribution.
