The Mystery of the Trans-Neon Orange

   The Mystery of the Trans-Neon Orange

After careful review of the Bionicle 2015 summer sets one specific thing stands out -- the trans-neon orange pieces on each of the Villains. Oddly enough all of the Villains seem to have an over-bearing transparent theme. The clash in particular between the transparent colors is quite contemptible for some of the sets while being Okayish for others. It just does seem a smart blend. Lego is a smart company, why would they make this very odd color choice for these sets?

  • First of all, Notice that each set (except mask maker v. skull grinder) features a half golden half transparent mask of a particular toa; in this case the transparent color matches the transparent colors on the villain.

-Here's my Theory: The Summer 2015 Bionicle Villain sets are comprised of skeletal beings, and like any undead, they likely seek to drain the life/energy of their victims. As each one fights a toa and eventually captures his golden mask it begins to drain the elemental force of the mask into its body to grow stronger. (we know the mask draining part is true, otherwise why are there half trans-colored masks?) So, in theory, that elemental energy (in the form of transparent parts) wasn't there originally, meaning that the original color of the Villains in the story is likely Black, grey, white, gunmetal, silver, etc. and Trans-Neon Orange.

-In short: Trans-Neon orange was their base color before draining the other trans-color from the masks.

The Bionicle team may have chosen to base a wildly new set idea on the preconceived idea that these Skeletal villains would be drawing that other trans-color from the Golden toa masks; however, this still doesn't explain everything, let alone why they incorporated it into the sets.

What do you think of my theory? Do you have a better ideas/theories? Any ideas for my Theory?
Please, let me know.

Maybe it's just their essence of evil powers.

Cool theory. I agree with this, but want to add something. So in the box art for skull grinder it looks like he is trying to take the mask of creation. Considering his name and his weapon, I think he is ether trying to mutate or destroy the mask. Then, makuta could come back and be the only mask maker.

The trans-orange might be some kind of control device on them.
Maybe The Skulls are just controlled and they can't control themselves.

This is actually a pretty good theory, as well as something I haven't seen before. GJ ghost

Very true, although generally people have some bias against the undead; I doubt that ... form of .... ageism, no .... I doubt that moral bias will dissipate that easily...
Especially as it's a kids line.
The most likely variant of them not being evil scenario I can see is them just becoming dead-dead, maybe with a 'relief'. Or just stay off-screen as guardians of the place...

So yeah I doubt it, but not because of ACTION!

I actually think the trans-orange represents rotting muscles.

ok, I have a theory.

the descriptions say that kulta's evil resurrection magic mumbo jumbo is coursing through them,

what color is kulta
trans-orange

BOOM!

He made this theory before the animations came out, before we even knew the Warriors weren't one character. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:
