Okay so... all through the G2 story line, we have been teased with images of the Vahi here and there... just a throw back right?
OOOHKAY. So apparently its a real thing now... Infact, the protectors used its power to call the toa from the temple of time... Makes sense...
But it has been stated that the because the vahi looks like half a mask, we might be getting to see the full mask, right? Then people just spam photoshopped the vahi onto protector masks because it kind of makes sense... except, they have already shown us the other piece! See, the Vahi as we know it looks like the referenced 'lower' piece, while the 'upper' piece is held elsewhere... But above they very CLEARLY have the 'lower' piece right?
Well, they weren't talking bottom jaw piece and upper helmet piece, by the fact that the protectors mentioning the have the 'upper' half... its the piece that goes OVER the 'lower' half.
remember this thing in the beautiful 2014 leaks?
At first you wouldn't think much of it, until... you see a vahi shaped imprint on the lower part of the mask... and even a hole that could fit the Gen1 connector?
The protectors have the upper half that goes over the mouth part, the vahi as we know it... and the lower half is somewhere else! Holy crap am I hyped.
Now, in Gen 1 (yes I know, hard reboot, just hear me out) Tahu states after using the vahi himself, that it was nearly impossible to control.
And in Gen 2, we see TWO masks going completely out of control... The Mask of Ultimate Power, and the Mask of Control. Both are so strong they take over the user.
Its very likely, the rule Ekimu and Makuta made about not giving masks more than one power, was because the vahi had shown to be too strong, so it was broken into two pieces and those were separated.
I would LOVE to see a year where wave 1 releases the lower half that was spoiled in 2014 as a mask the toa are trying to keep away from the obligatory bad guy... and wave 2 has the Gen2 updated vahi that can connect together with the other, making a full, 'True Vahi.'
But... then... would it be too powerful? Even persay, for a Toa of Time?
