Ugggh , I hope its not gonna be a long one.
Firstly , this ISNT AN ATTACK AN ANYBODY. Im not saying Solek is a gift from God, im just saying that he isnt that bad everyone and their grandma says. Also i have NO BIAS towards any side, ive personaly entered Bionicle during G2.
- The colors. Like almost every white set, his colors are mostly boring. But unlike the other white sets, he uses a diffrent eye color which people use as a con(?)
a) Isnt a bad thing. Breaking out of the norm isnt a bad thing, expecialy when EVERY single white set (exept 1 but we will get back on that) has. Like really, why does every single white set have light blue eyes?
b) A bit hypoctitical since NOBODY is bashing Matoro Mahri for the same thing. At least on Solek it kinda makes sense(he is a being of pure light) , but Matoro? The most pure and wholesome character has dark RED eyes and A SKULL FOR A FACE? His head looks more Makuta like then some of the real makuta!(Im looking at you Bitil ) And the 6 barrel rocket launcher and the hunchback look with the Freddy Kruger claws arent helping.
2.The parts and the other contenders
Sadly, he uses the same part for all limbs which some may seem as a con. But he uses THE BEST PART . Basicly ALL the other Av Matoran have that stupid 90 degree part that severely limits articualtion. Kirop is the ONLY Av matoran that has the good limbs, BUT the poor soul has 90 DEGREE WEAPONS. Solek has the best articualtion out of all them. Also the “wings” break easily.
Now to the Agori. Sadly, they have the new finger mold which has a very stupid conection point ( seriusly, why???) They cannot point to their weapons in the right direction. There are a few of them who don’t have it, BUT they are on 4 legs which makes them harder to work with. So Solek prevails on top again.
Lastly the “Stars”. Takanuva, Gresh and Nektan are the main contenders this time. (Rahkshi has the God awful torso , Skrall has the hands and the 90 degree arms, Tahu has the 90 degree arms too). Gresh has ok weapons, but he has the new hand mold. Takanuva has the same problem AND he has the nuva armor that slighly limits the arm movement. Nektan has the SAME HANDS, but he has the best weapons. But sadly , like the Piraka, his spine limits his movement.
Solek is the best out of the arm matoran, but he is FAR from being a great set. His colors may be boring but stopmotion and posing is far more inportant. Also Colors are subjective, ive tried to change the color of the limbs but it even looks worse. Just check out this absolutly jaw dropping edit ive did.
Also Solek would beat Troglomorph in a fight and you know it.
