My third Bionicle set ever, the original Gresh, has gone through six (SIX) of those dark green hands.
Insult to injury, Vastus is still on his first pair of LIME GREEN 2009 hands.
One of the sword pieces on Tuma's back broke (the axle snapped off.) I replaced it with Fero's sword, and Fero holds the broken one with a blue axle/pin piece in the pin hole of the broken sword. The bonus is that it goes swoosh much better because of the way he's holding it though.
I have no IRL Bionicle friends
