I always considered Bionicle to be lame, not real Lego, and a sign of TLC's decline. But Zahru is rocking it pretty hard.

I'm afraid 'life' is still devoid of robo-tits, call me back when they have those.

I liked the original line...
Did anyone else have Throwbots and Robo-Riders? Now those guys were badass.

No Lego projectile has worked as well as those Throwbot disks. I had the yellow Throwbot, and the black, red (x2), and yellow Roborider. Roboriders were really cool.

Now Zahru must name his new bionic duo.

@Brag - good call, but they're gonna be display pieces only, they're far too top heavy ( :warhead: ) to maintain dynamic poses without toppling over.

As for names, you have some hilarious suggestions! I'm thinking of calling the new one 'Viridian' (or Viridianne, with a slight femme twist); as for the other one, Idunno really... wanted to call her 'Alita', but I already had a girl-robo with that name: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Axona ... cf7169.jpg

Rly? But the gallery is full of dynamic poses.

You sure build some sweet mechs, I need to steal some of your ideas urgently.
