First Look: DUME Drops In
Mark: TURAGA DUME is just your average, everyday Metru Nui MATORAN in terms of construction except for two things: outstanding fashion sense and the coolest mask to hit BIONICLE® in a long time. The two-tone mask process has never been put to better use than right here with TURAGA DUME's black-and-red KANOHI.

As if that is not enough intimidation, TURAGA DUME gets around by riding on NIVAWK, a tall lanky creature with sharp blades for wings and a face only a mother could love. TURAGA DUME can quickly pop in and out of the NIVAWK's "seat," and the NIVAWK can retract or extend its wings.

Like NIDHIKI and KREKKA, the NIVAWK sports new two-tone ball joints. These are black with white stripes. Unlike NIDHIKI and KREKKA though, you can forget about building this set one-bag-at-a-time. (Each of the sets comes with all of the parts in three or four numbered bags.) There are several parts which are needed early but are packed in later-numbered bags.

Those new ball-joints look good, but they don't hold any better than any other ball-joints. If you are not careful, the NIVAWK will easily fall over forward, fall over backward, or just slowly collapse right there on the spot. This can be overcome though with a little patience and some careful posing.
