If G1 BIONICLE Was Inspired by a Different Culture Than Maori, What Culture?

I think it would be cool for a Greek styled world, with Gladiator like heroes.

Well, read it wrong.

Greek. I think the Toa would be cool portrayed as "Gods" of different elements with gladiator aspects.

I think Celtic would be cool.
Mazeka could have been trained at Aoife's battle school.

Uh... Multiple, actually.

Po Koro seemed heavily inspired by adobe villages architecturally, yet held a more middle eastern atmosphere as a whole. Ko Koro is somewhat like Tibet; being a collection of monasteries upon the top of the island's tallest mountain where Matoran meditate and undertake spiritual endeavors. In MNOG 2, Ga-Koro gained a certain Japanese aesthetic, with the Torii style gates and abundant bamboo.

As a whole, Mata Nui's society was very tribal and shamanistic which reflected not only the Maori people, but similar down to earth peoples all over the world. I swear that book "Ishmael" had a name for this, but I can't quite remember it...

Feudal Japan would have been cool, but I still like the Maori influence smile

Native American ?

Canadians dude. I can see it now.

Imgur If BIONICLE was Canadian

I'm sorry if this is offensive to Canadian members

Egyptian would be interesting.

this new bionicle seems to be a mix certain aspects of varying cultures such as Chinese, Aztec, (some) Egyptian, and (some, though be it almost non existent) Maori.

Maybe they don't want to cause more controversy, like another lawsuit or something.
