Hello! I am Nyran. This is the fifth of a series of 10(for now) topics that I’m gonna make for the sake of discussing a various year of Bionicle as a whole.
We’ve had big overall topics, like whatever, but few if any topics focused on specific years, outside 2015.
So, I wanna know some aspects that you liked/didn’t like/stood out to you about certain years! This topic’s gonna be 2007. 2007 was a big year for me personally, because it was when I personally felt stuff really began to get more intense.
Well, it actually started in the climax of 06, but 07 was a larger thing for me. In terms of the story, we were back to the same endless ocean from the Golden Years, but much darker, and with mysteries, foes of all sorts new and familiar, all out for the Mask of Life.
The sets, IMO, were 2006 done right. It used the super pose able system from 2006, but gave each Toa very distinct looks, with some using the Inika Torso, some with the Piraka Torso, and one with a new torso piece altogether.
The sets felt like better representations of the characters than the 06 Toa, and the Barraki were new with a dark, legendary past, and truly unique, creative sets.
The titans of this year were all fantastic, from Karzahni to Hydraxon to Gadunka, all were truly enjoyable, and had stories of their own that made them interesting, outside maaybe Gadunka
Also, it introduced us to Cryoshell, and Creeping in My Soul remains my favorite traditional sort of song used in Bionicle Materials, certainly blowing the Rejects that preceded them out of the water(Get it, 'cause Mahri Nui? Pit?)
