I just heard this news in my youtube feed. don't know what to really say about it outside of it reminding me of when Hulk Hogan got removed from WWE hall of fame. not in terms of cause for removal but impact of decision. literally ripping away the oldest and strongest foundation of the community.
as many people have pointed out he was the crown jewel of this Bionicle fan channel with his recap and (at the time) current reviews of the Bionicle theme with very solid reasoning and logical arguments behind his views and opinions on the matter. haven't seen the MNOG videos or the NinjagoCast but I am betting he brought the same thought and insight as well. and at least in my opinion, he seemed the most Bionicle-fan I have seen with his classic Miru in his vids. just something about him wearing such an icon of the franchise gave said franchise legitimacy if I make sense.
sigh times are changing. makutafest officially discontinued the purpose of the channel discontinued now (at least under the brand name) TTV's most popular content discontinued. feels bad man.
do hope something good comes out of this in the near future and I hope all parties involved find success.
