Today I’m gonna review set 8915 Matoro mahri. Released in summer 2007 he’s the toa mahri of ice, aswell as my favorite character of all time.
(Wow, this picture did not turn out well.) It’s just a standard yearly blaster. It fires okay though sometimes it messes up, but it seems to work perfectly underwater. Just with design alone it’s my favorite toa blaster thing.
Moving on to the mask, and mask accessories.
(I guess this picture turned out better.) The Tryna actually looks pretty cool! And the visor looks cool and just adds something to it. As for the tube… it’s a tube. Nothing special there. Back to the mask, it looks slightly… evil, I have no clue what it is but it just looks evil. It might be the slanted eye holes or something, but I just can’t tell. Whatever, now for the size comparison!
So here he is next to a mata build and a standard HF build I threw together. As you can clearly see he is a lot larger than the others. Now for the set itself!
(This picture came out okay.)
Looks decent, and yes I do know his arm is flipped. So the color scheme is just okay for me. I just don’t care for that shade of blue, though the mask does look best in silver, even if he doesn’t have too much silver on him. (I realize now that the shoulder pads definitely help.) And that piece that connects the foot to the body, just WHY is it red. (I sound like Eljay.) It just breaks the color scheme. And the mata feet… don’t look that good on an inika, and that hunch, just why did they give him a hunch? Also that right arm is just too small. Other than that it looks fairly good, I like the parts on the lower legs and he left arm looks cool. Especially the claw, the claw looks awesome and would definitely be intimidating except for the part where it’s plastic. Now onto the build!
The build is mostly a standard inika build with the exception of the neck which I thought was unnecessary, but cool nonetheless. (And those shoulder pads are pretty cool.) Now for my final thoughts.
So, most of this review was me nitpicking, but I do kinda like this figure, despite what I said.
Final rating: 7/10 would kill himself again.
Join me tomorrow as I review set 8534 Tahu.
