The sets were cool. I only bought a few (Stormer 1.0, Surge 2.0, Stormer Brain Attack edition, and Dragon Bolt). I tried to get into the story, I honestly did. I was watching the shows, reading the comics... but it didn't suck me in. I couldn't stay interested for long.
Basically, great sets, not so great story, will be a little bit sad to see it go, but it is worth it to get Bionicle back.
