    Set name: Mark SURGE
    Set Number: 7169
    Price: 7.99$, 6,33 Euro
    Pieces: 19
    Year of release: 2010


    The Canister

    Front
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777633214_d7bdfa9958
    Shows our Hero standing in a neat pose, as well as his name written in a scribbly style, similar to the one that the Piraka had. A Bionicle logo is present on there as well,to show that this uses the same system and such as Bionicle.


    Side
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777272275_18fb8d7bf9
    Shows a silhouttte image of him, as well as his name. The other side doesnt have any of this on it.


    Back
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777272463_8a4264313f
    Shows him facing off against Corroder. Also, his head is shown to give a scale chart.

    Lid
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777906966_dcfacebded
    Very similar to the star's lids.

    Parts
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777909680_40f0ecf746
    Look at them all! Lets inspect them more closely.

    Old Parts
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777907238_c3d4237509
    Yes, only 2 old parts! Well 3 if you count the other hand. The black socket pieces are not shown here because they are modified to not break. A slight visual chance near the socket is all really, but they are super tight and hold up very well.

    Feet
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777275687_b9fe96175a
    The new feet aren't bad, they have thuseters on the bottom. Only thing I find strange is the large ark in the center of them.

    Leg armor
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777907588_e5e918e418
    The Lego armor. Really nice and detailed,and they give the figure a look that is very different than Bionicle.

    Torso Bits
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777910092_c8749661a3
    A new torso and chest armor. The new torso is very MOCable, as it has plenty of connection points.

    Weapons and Core
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777273153_575c0fee44
    The weapons are nice looing electro pieces,that can be held seperatly or together in his hand to cover it completely. He can also use them like a staff,so they are quite versital. Also, his HERO Core is a trans yellow, which I find odd because his weapon and glatorian head are Neon Green.

    Mask
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777907712_23f516f7c1
    I like the mask a lot more than I thought I would, its actually possible to pull it off as being sinister.

    Limbs
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777276073_a60f0aec11
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777276255_7ae485c4d3
    The limbs are very nice in comparison to our normal 90 degree av-toran limbs. Much easier to pose them. They also have some more useful connection points along the sides.

    Buliding

    Start
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777273697_cc4e6511a2
    Oh sweet Mata Nui, he's naked AND headless!

    Adding armor

    Starting to bulk up.

    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777908648_e1c9c7d9c1
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777275285_f86fd707d9
    Very flexible design and he can show some more natural looking posed than the Bionicle figures could.

    Close Up
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777908900_08226bf0e5
    Although it is slightly asymetrical, it looks far better than, say, the Mahri masks.

    This also shows as a quick size comparison between your standard Agori build figure.

    Pwned
    VBBN Reviews: 7169 Mark SURGE 4777909292_6c1fa3bfdd


    Overall, this figure is a great step forwards for a Bioncile replacement line. He is very nice visually, and his articulation and mass amount of new pieces make it worth any Bionicle fan to give these guys a try. Personally I would recommend picking up a Rookie team member as opposed to an Alpha team member for your first set,as these guys don't have the horrid weapon arms.

    Colors scheme- 9/10 (The trans yellow hero core looks very out of place on him.)
    Parts- 9/10 (I still knock one off for him having only 19 parts, but the amount of new ones really makes up for it)
    Design- 10/10 (Fantastic Looking)
    Articulation- 8/10 (A lack of knees and elbows is still a major issue, especially since we saw so many of the limbs bent in the images of these guys.
    Quality- 9/10 (The silver is still peraly, which I dislike.)

    Overall: 45/50 Excellent

    As always, questions,comments, and pic requests welcome!

    I bought him and while fiddling with him at the computer saw this

    My blue computer light made his weapons glow green!
