Hi everybody, I am from Russia. And I want to lay out there one of my AF-reviews. Sorry if i do something wrong. 8541 MATAU
3.00 USD Further References: BrickLink
This is a simple small box, a little bigger than standart impulse-sets box. It has art of Turaga Matau on it's front and old-school Bionicle logo.
On the back of the box you can see all six turaga sets from 2001, and a picture of the combiner of all turaga - Turaga Nui.
On the right and left sides of the box there are some another pictures of set and address of Bionicle site.The instructions
Instruction consists and another side of it is the poster. Looks very nostalgicically =)The pieces
Turaga Matau consists of a mixture of Technic and Bionicle pieces, like other sets of first years of Bionicle series. Design and playability of the set.
Here is the completely built Turaga Matau, Ex-Toa Metru of Air. He is a little humpbacked and has disproportionately large head and feet.
Matau is quite agile and can sit unlike 2001 Toa Action-figures.
Under set's mask there is a green old-style bionicle head.
If you press the lever on his back, he raises up his hand with a stick.
Turaga Matau's mask is just awesome. It has lime color and looks some anthropoid. This mask called Mahiki, the Noble Mask of Illusion
Matau's staff looks like jungle cutter. On its end there is green rotating saw. I think that i saw this pat in some of Racers theme sets.Size comparison
The set is a little taller tha standart 2001 matoran...
But in comparison with Toa Tahu it looks very small.Some other photos
Matau and his counterparts. All six turaga sets.
Don't look back...Conclusion
Matau - Nice little set of old bionicle times. It will be liked by collector and by the MOC creators as source of some good rare parts.
Oh, it's something enchanting, that have old sets of Bionicle...That's all, I hope you enjoyed the review. Sorry for bad English =)
