I remembered seeing an Old Teaser poster for 2009 showing Mata Nui’s new body, and couldn’t help noticing how similar it was to Matoro Inika. you probably won’t answer this, but was the original idea for Mata Nui’s Glatorian form to have it resemble Matoro? or was this just a placeholder for the teaser?
No idea. Had nothing to do with set design or the poster.
