The original post was a bit unclear on the matter.
The thing is that outside of the chronicler's company has always been a popular choice ever since the Inika happened. I think it's due to nostalgia and the fact that MNOG allowed people to get to know them in a way that no other matoran group has in years since.
Each of the company had a clear personality to them. Outside of physical appearance, I can't say the same for the matoran in later years.
I will say that Mazeka would make for a good toa. I enjoyed him in Brothers in Arms even if the serial became a completely different story halfway through it.
