Why It Pays To Have Relatives...

Relatives. They may pinch your cheeks and call you stupid names (Boo-Boo and Pumpkin are some of my favorites) But one thing is for certain. They can be AWESOME!

A few days ago, Some relatives from out of town stopped by with some gifts. An Eagles Sign for my football obsessed father, A Vera Bradley Gift Card for my fashionista mother and most importantly...


First off, I was given Lewa: Uniter Of Jungle and Gali: Uniter Of Water. I already own these sets. But they contain many valuable and rare parts. So I'll probably use their contents for MOCs.

Secondly, They gave me some random parts and pieces! One bag containing Red, Black, Dark Grey and Brown pieces. The other one containing White, Black, Blue and Light Grey pieces! As a BIONICLE Fan with a small-ish collection of parts, this is great! 
The Red, Black, Dark Grey and Brown Bag
The White, Black, Blue and Light Grey Bag
I challenged myself to make a small MOC with parts exclusively from each bag. These are the results!

This first one is Tiny Tahu! It's kinda like a chibi version of Tahu Nuva. It uses the Metru Matoran build to good effect I think. It adds to the chibi feel,

This is The Mysterious Weapon Salesman. He's always looking down with his hands in his pockets. He was kinda hard to make. That bag kinda lacks Technic parts. I do like him a lot though.

So. The moral of today's story is... Respect your relatives! Because if you do, they will buy you LEGO. (Also, You wouldn't exist without them.)

Thanks Aunt Penny!
