Been waiting a long time for a villain shirt - though honestly was kind of expecting something different;
- A cartoon Lord Of Skull Spiders in his web
- A cartoon Skull Warrior clawing himself out of the ground with only hands and face visible
Though Control by Venom fits better with the whole 'Bionicle' theme, however cannot see non-Bionicle fans wearing it. Part of my hope with a villain shirt would be that it used one of the less recognisable Bionicle villains who could perhaps be mistaken by someone as just being a cartoon spider or a cartoon skeleton. The basic message of the shirt is that Makuta desires the Mask Of Creation (Not really accurate to the story currently... but could be in future) however he himself is being manipulated/controlled by the Mask Of Ultimate Power (a popular fan theory that i started a while back)
The appeal of the 'many faces' shirt is normally that it represents a popular character to begin with and to be honest, the shirt doesn't really work for me because it designates itself as an Exxtrooper shirt. First look i confused it with Veemon from Digimon or a Puffle from Club Penguin or even just a grey Angry Bird. Honestly you could probably sell a whole range of shirts with just that sort of design alone, the cuteness of the designs is perfect - though its just that title which kind of lets the shirt down. As much as a TTV fan might enjoy the design, non-TTV fans would have no idea who this represents and it cannot really be worn as a casual shirt either given it specifies its about Exxtrooper.
Voted for the 'Control' shirt as it overall feels like it'd be better for the Bionicle community which currently lacks a lot of things. Though if you were to remove the title from the Exxtrooper shirt and sell it as depicted in the 'Vs' image then it'd probably sell fairly well as a casual shirt and could appeal to a wider market than just TTV or Bionicle fans. Which i think you should do regardless of the winner.
