To those of you considering getting some bionicle to see what you can get out of it, I have two suggestions:
1. Do it! Take a hard look at the sets available and at what pieces you'd find useful before you buy, but fiddle around with those screwy bionibits. You can do some neat stuff with it!
2. Don't do it! Bionicle will drag you kicking and screaming down a dark hole from which your money will never return! Seriously, this shit is addictive.
