Which one was Proto-Solek? Was it this thing?
If so, then yaa he's way better. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Mata Blue was only in 2 sets from 2006/2007: Dalu and Gadunka, right? Could be wrong on that, but I don't think so. Also, I don't know what the heck those weapons are, but they're weird, hilarious, and certainly not boring.
EDIT: also not avtoran so 13/10
