Ok. My first post in a while, sorry about that. Anyway, I realized as I was sitting in bed that there are some key differences between one half of the Toa Mahri and the other half. If you look at Jaller and Hewkii, you can see that they look very organic, in terms of their masks. This is less noticeable in Hahli, but she also has “wings” and looks like she belongs in the water.
On the other hand, Nuparu, Kongu, and Matoro look more like scuba divers. Almost like they don’t really belong. 2 of these three don’t even have melee weapons, but Cordak Torpedo blasters. Matoro has claws, but his mask feels very much like something a scuba diver nowadays could use.
So now, I have a question for you all. If you could redo Bionicle’s 2007 release, what would you have done? Made the team entirely look like divers, turn Nuparu, Kongu, and Matoro into more crustacean-like Toa (Truly giving them the name Mahri, like Calamari) or keep them the same?
Just a little reference for you all. Look at the masks and weapons in particular (also, Jaller’s little friend)
