I realize this, I was just pointing out how the limited Lego color palate can be difficult to differentiate the tribes from each other, as well as from their respected Toa. There was a point in that linked podcast that they discussed this.
Agreed. I think they are expecting a solution similar to the mask debate, but the difference here is that the height difference does not add much to the plot. Nor do a similar height. It's just which one works better for Bionicle in system form design-wise. Therefore I think it could really go either way. It just depends on how they want this imaginary line of toys to be done.
