As you may have picked up over the hundred or so blog posts, I am more of a system kind of a guy: Bricks, studs, 3.18mm bar and clip, mini figures, creator, friends, elves, superheroes, video games are my normal thing.
I have never really been invested in the constraction (constructible action figures) figures: Bionicle passed me by, Super Heroes happened in the background, Hero Factory came and went, and then Bionicle came and went again. And in the meantime, Star Wars characters started to get a go at it too.
I never bought into the mythology of Bionicles and Hero Factory. I have admired some remarkable creations put together with these elements, but I have never actually picked up a set until now. My curiosity was piqued a few weeks ago when I put together the Creator Mighty Dinosaurs and first encountered the ‘ball cup with rubber, high friction.’
