I feel if they just had a better body design then it could work well. Rey from the Star Wars line honestly has the main body structure that fits for a sleek feminine design. Not overly hourglass designed, but slightly thinner near the middle and wider at the hips. It does so without being too overly sexualised handling it respectfully. Just good proportions would solve the issues here, wouldn't even require new pieces, just for them to be used effectively.
Characters do not necessarily need to be overly sexualised such as Roodaka, however we should really be able to tell the gender of a character (if gender is going to be given to that character) Korgot remains one of the more 'iffy' situations where I'm almost certain that they didn't intend the character to be female originally and simply claimed they were female when fans started asking which one was the female small set this time around. Especially given the place where the gender was revealed made light of recent jokes and discussions in the Bionicle community, implying it was written after the sets had been released for quite a while.
I don't want a character to be overly sexualised, though i don't like the neutral approach they are going for with all the characters. I also don't particularly like the in-joke with Korgot that Onua (representing the fanbase) could not tell the character was female based off the set design alone. While its intended as a joke about the community not realising the set was female, their really wasn't much to go off unless you take the chest canon in a more sexualised sense and then the joke just becomes creepy.
- Give us better proportions
- Don't use a copy-paste design for the exterior of the body, the body is important also.
- Avoid overly sexualised stuff
We should really know a gender by the set, rather than the gender by the lore. Some sets may be exempt from this (can understand the creatures not being obviously shown as male or female) however i feel not having aspects to define the gender on the sets weakens them a little. 'Show don't tell' - show us sets that look female, don't tell us they are female after the fact.
This didn't happen in the set... and honestly wouldn't have helped much in my view because the silhouette of a character is what people tend to focus on and just making her have a larger upper chest would be awkward.
Personally i don't find either of them feminine - as per the original discussion this stemmed from. Gali 2015 is about as sleek/smooth as any other CCBS set and despite a few different sized CCBS pieces, the aspects alone don't make her feel feminine. Possibly because she is not supposed to as she is more of a masculine female warrior (think Imperator Furiosa)
Sadly their is no correlation currently in G2 that i can see between the design of sets and the gender of a character.
