Piraka Have Arrived

The most striking feature of the figure is a rubbery spine and face that branches out onto the upper arms. These rubber appendages are visciously and variously spined. The face wraps snugly around its hideous jaw and light-up brain.
The faces are very cartoony in comparison to the previous toys in the line. I am reminded of the characters from Small Soldiers.
The green marbles are hollow plastic spheres called zamor in the Bionicle nomenclature. They are ammo for a clever shooter (in the right hand).
The smaller figure on the left is one of the original Bionicle characters. The toys have become progressively larger and more articulated.
