Set Presentation

From the design of the box to the instruction manual, these are the first things you see before building the set.

The Mask of Life created a body for itself from stray molecules and has become Toa Ignika, the Toa of Life! Now, flying on a powerful skyboard and armed with a Midak Skyblaster and Lifeblade, he is determined to be a hero.

Toa Ignika, in all his glory is an E.P.I.C set for me, with a cool Skyboard and Midak Skyblaster and...And... 140 pieces and comes with THE IGNIKA MASK as it appeared in 2007 (But in Silver).

Building the set

Half the fun is had building the set. How fun is it to build and how easy or challenging is it?

It is a simple building (The Toa), the Skyboard was a little... difficult for me, but when I completed it, he becomed my best Phantoka Set.

Set Design

Now that the set is complete, we can critique how it looks from every angle. New or interesting pieces can also be examined here.

This set is as promising is it looks. The Skyboard is....Big, Toa Ignika can use it as a hideout =P, the Toa Ignika design is a little boring, (the Toa in himself).


The other half of the fun is in playing with the set. How well does the set function and is it enjoyable to play with?

To me, it's a very good playability, as you can simulate as if he it is surfboarding on the air or sea, but you can't really model it while it's in the Skyboard, so nice try to model him =P

Final Thoughts/Overall

I would really REALLY recommend this set to someone else. Like a 9.5 out of 10 greatness. =P
