Hi. I'm sure I wasn't the first person to feel this, but was anybody else slightly disappointed that Lego has opted not to introduce villains to G2 that appeared in G1 besides the original Makuta? Except for the non-intelligent, monster-like villains like the Bohrok and the Rahkshi (which were still unique and memorable in their own right) that appeared in the earlier portion of the storyline, most of the villains we got had interesting and distinctive personalities with the exception of the villainous personality traits more pervasive and common among the G1 antagonists like treachery and arrogance, which were still acceptable. Who could forget the blood curdling screech of a Rahkshi, or the devious attitude of the Piraka? Most if not all the G1 villains had their own brand of evil and were effective antagonists.
So taking all this into consideration, it almost seems illogical to not utilise G1's rogues gallery. It sounds like a well of untapped potential. But I guess the most probable answer is they don't really need to. Why bother catering to a small demographic of fans that followed the previous generation by introducing old enemies from that generation that new fans won't recognize or appreciate as much as old fans when you can simply create new villains that fit more with the overall setting and tone of G2 without being limited or constrained by the history and personality of a previous incarnation of a character?
And so taking that information into account, the possibility of any G1 villain popping up in the current storyline looks extremely small. As much as I would like to see it happen I still know at this point it is only and most likely always will be wishful thinking or a pipe dream.
Wow, I've spent far too much time on the TTV forums today. I guess I just have had too many thoughts stored in my head for too long that needed release through some form of catharsis. Sort of like vomit that had to be brought up through the throat and spewed out. I've basically puked my feelings all over the forums, coating everybody in a thick layer of chunky, glistenin- I think I'll stop now. Goodnight.
