Does anybody miss the days of 2002 when the Toa Nuva came out, and they had silver armour, and you were like “oh my god, silver, thats like the most awesomest thing ever, mummy daddy please buy me every single one in the universe ever and all the rest too.”
Now silver seems to be being overused. The Glatorian were some of my favorite BIONICLE G1 sets after the Inika system was established, and thats mainly because the Glatorian just looked so much more interesting. The Glatorian actually looked like they were part of their element. Gresh looked like he could have been made of Jungle, and Strakk actually looked like ice. I was hoping G2 would revisit this, but unfortunately they stuck with using silver prominently, and in 2016 silver and gold has become almost as prominent as silver was for the Toa Mistika.
What do you think? Do you think silver should be cut down on a little, or are you happy with how its currently being used in BIONICLE sets?
Another question: Would you like to see more MOC makers see what they can do using no silver at all? Its something i’ve been working on doing, and it’d be cool if you could post some photos below of your MOCs which harken back to the 2001 / Toa Mata days of colour design.
