I walked into a toys r us and saw one of the new sets, skull scorpio. i was about to turn around and walk away in dissapointment when skull grinder vs mask maker caught my eyes. so i grabed them today. i was really hoping to find skull warrior and skull basher, oh well got the set i wanted third most.
Also, don't be asking people about the area they live in if they so happen to have a set in their area that you're looking for, thats a bad idea, and i wish i didn't have to state that.
edit Well this is great, i'm trying to put the set together and i'm missing a long blue pin. This is twice i've bought a 2015 set and was missing pieces, the first time was gali master of water where i was missing the two thigh shell pieces. In all the years since 01' that i've been collecting bionicles, i've never gotten sets that were missing pieces. This is pretty frustrating to have it happen twice in one year. i'd take it back, but the store i bought it in is an hour and a half away. oh well, good thing i have a bunch of spare parts laying around my apartment.
edit2 i just picked up skull basher at a local target when hanging out with a friend, not gonna lie, i was really iffy on his function, but i'm really liking it, just wish there was a way for it to not wobble around as much. now i just gotta hunt down skull warrior. for your basic foot soldier, he's been pretty elusive for me.
edit3 So earlier i got the idea of "Man, i bet skull grinder would AMAZING if you put tahu's transparent orange mask of fire on him!"
So i went to go get mine, and i tried to put it on and.... IT DOESN'T FIT.
You seriously have to remove the horns and change the axel piece in the brain stalk to a smaller one to get it to fit, but when you do it looks awesome. Him and Tahu look fantastic staring down each other with grinder in the orange hau and tahu in the red one.
edit4 I got skull warrior at work today(i work at the post office). i got home and put him together during my lunch break, and i love him, his asymmetricality is done perfectly, and the trans-orange contrast the trans-blue perfectly. i just wish his bow had trans blue studs, and that his hand could hold the front of the bow better, unfortunately, its a bit wobbly. you can kinda counter it by turning his staff to the side a bit and using it to lock the bow in place.
edit5 I got skull scorpio in the mail today. Guess what, missing a piece again. This time its a small red axle, This is pretty agitating. ANYWAYS, i have him put together now. And he seems alright. The only issue is, his tail just looks too much like a prototype and isn't finished
Now to disassemble him and put the combiner together, which looks amazing.
