So, I was born in '99, and, I remember my brother loved Bionicles, as did almost everybody else I knew. In fact, every single friend that I currently maintain to this day has owned a Bionicle at least once, and it's also how my relationship with my best friend Kyle was formed!
So, in 2004 I received my very first Bionicle: Nuhrii! Of course, I had owned them before, but they meant nothing before then, as they were just toys that I gave to my brother. Nuhrii is my first Bionicle with sentimental value, the one that started my journey!
My brother was the one who introduced me to Bionicle, and I clearly remember him owning the Exo-Toa, Tahu Mata, and almost every Rahkshi, as well as Bohrok. My brother has had a great influence on my life, and I'll always respect him for introducing me to Bionicle, which has long been a facet in my life.
