      A lot of hate for a decent set
      | 19-24
      I would recommend this to a friend!
      Purchased for: Self
      Ketar is currently under the fire and is being called the "worst set of Bionicle Generation 2". this is due to many criteria such as; colour scheme, posability and a MOC like build (in a bad way). Personally i believe this set has been overlooked and after i had low expectations for the set from what i read, when i had built it up and tested it i found that it is actually one of my favourite sets! im going to look over some of the things that have been said about this set in this article colour scheme: im going to be honest here in saying that the colour scheme for Ketar is well.... pretty all over the place. to count all of the major colours (not even the minor colours) we have: black light grey dark grey silver gunmetal burnt orange dark tan trans-neon green solid neon green thats an astounding 9 colours compared to a toa set that usually has no more than 6 or 7. for a creature set, this many colours seems a bit rainbow like and isnt completely pleasant for the eye. luckily the colours are quite similar and they blend together when you're not focusing hard on the set. Pose-ability and function: this is where ketar gets the most hate. with arms that are connected to gears with no friction to a stinging tail that cannot reach past the back of his head, ketar has bad pose-ability at first glance. something many people may not have noticed is that you can actually lock ketar's tail into place without any extra pieces. by pushing the dark tan peice into the back of ketar it actually stops the arms from moving completely and you can now pose him at will (i have placed a picture for reference in the review). i think this makes him BETTER that the other creatures which have limited friction in their gears. ketar can swing his arms at the enemy without any resistance and then you can lock his arms into place when you're done. also by posing ketar in an attack position (like a real scorpion) you can make him sting things. unfortunately, neither of these things are shown or mentioned in the instruction booklet or on the box and leaves many people struggling. on another note at least ketar has pose-able legs unlike the last scorpion we had ( *cough* skull scorpio *cough* ) MOC like build: okay this one is correct. Ketar has a questionable build that isnt very stable. his piece of unity is not secured to his body and wobbles around. while this is unoticeable on the set on its own, it is really annoying on his combiner with pohatu where he wobbles around on his back instead of staying in place, making posing quite difficult for this combiner. the rest of the set also, just looks like it was thrown together with pieces that were left over in the box of bionicle parts (the tail especially). personally i think it is kind of weird. to sum up, critics are correct about the MOC build and colour scheme, they really are all over the place. what they are wrong about is the pose-ability and the function. these things are actually better on this set than any other creature. personally, it makes up for the flaws in the other 2 categories. it is unfortuante that these things are nt showcased int the instruction booklet as kids (and some adults) likely cannot figure these things out for themselves. Ketar has made itself one of my favourite sets so far PS: also yeah the shadow trap is fun to use with ketar ( i wish we could get another with pohatu like the skull spiders last year)

      Alright

      Ketar is an interesting set which actually looks better in hand than in pictures (as with most sets). However he (she?) is by no means the best of the creatures. The build is fairly simple, with the complexity mainly being in the torso. While I, as a gen 1 Bionicle fan, appreciate the more technic-based build, it isn't great if I'm perfectly honest. The function works well and is fun to mess around with, however it has no friction and is not the most inventive, though it does still work in unity mode which is a plus. The overall appearance of the set is good, much better (as I said) in hand than it appears in pictures. The tail, however, is very oddly designed and the two crystal blades are long and a oddly placed, though I don't actually mind how they look. The unity mode with Pohatu, while many have said looks bad, I would actually say I like. If you bring the tail right down, position the legs over Pohatu's shoulders and around his waist, and bring the blades forwards and out at an angle, then it looks pretty cool in my opinion and Pohatu gains a pair of blades and a tail. In conclusion, I would recommend you buy this set if you get Pohatu Uniter of Stone, but on its own there are better creatures for you to buy,

      Worse Creature
      | 19-24
      Purchased for: Self
      Ketar is the worse one out of the creatures, the build of it is just thrown together (and the tail is pretty ugly) without any thought put into it and the function looks just forced on. The posing the set isn't good too, because most of the time, it just keep falling over on it self and it's really hard to get it in a good pose. Color scheme of it is a big mess, the silver, dark tan, pearl dark gray, and dark gray just hurts the eyes (plus silver is getting really annoying) and would just be better with brown and dark orange. I also keep questioning of why trans-neon green and not trans-yellow, which this is a problem I have with the stone characters from last year. But to give credit where credit is do, I like that Ketar (and two other creatures) don't have ball joints sticking out and have some useful pieces for MOCing, but not that useful sense there aren't a lot of dark orange and brown constraction pieces.

      It really seems like this set just did not sit well with you and I am sorry. I can confirm that the designers spent over a year designing and finalizing this model with the hope that it will be appealing to all types of builders. While some might enjoy the build or the play it is good to see that you at least enjoy the new elements and the ability to use these toward your own creations.

      Ketar, Creature of Stone, is a fairly decent set with good play value and functions. It's color scheme is okay, but sometimes the lime green clashes with the other colors for it being such a small set. He is a scorpion-like creature with 4 legs and 2 large swords for stingers, and... well, posing is pretty difficult with this set. It's hard to get him to do much because he relies on these... "pinchers" for legs and sometimes it doesn't really work out, especially if you don't use his stingers for extra balance. However, Ketar redeems himself with a pretty cool function: upon swinging his tail from left to right his stingers will strike down and attack anyone in his path. He also does create a neat silhouette when united with Pohatu. So, if you're a Pohatu fan or just like scorpions then this set is for you, but there are definitely better creatures out there.
