It may be extremely popular among Metru build stans, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be wrong. Plus, I seriously doubt many of those you mentioned also believe the proportions have nothing to do with its qualification.
I’ve already given the arguments in days past. They weren’t liked then, and so I’m not going to reiterate them, but I’m also not going to change my mind because the arguments presented on your half aren’t much convincing either.
Plus, I’m not trying to convince you, really. I’m listing off reasoning for the freedom of building custom torsos and also combating reasoning against it, so that every card can be on the table.
Then I’ll mention this as well: I’m also arguing for the creative freedom of people who want to diversify their design with more than just the limbs as an option. I’d like the option for a proper waist swivel to exist if it can. I’d like the contest to be more than which model has fancier shoulders.
Otherwise there’s no point in a moc contest, and I really want there to be a moc contest that matters.
Funnier? No. Funny? Yes.
And I don’t need the Bionicle community to agree with me - there are dozens of communities to which I could reach, with ten times the voting power of the Helryx voters. In two weeks, definitely I could win.
The danger very much exists. This example just happens to be of a joke entry.
The Inika are Toa sized too.
A Metru build should have Metru proportions.
