Thank you @TheJermimator !
This is my wishful thinking, but if it were as clear a fact that Kongu’s Suletu is the same shape as the regular type as it is that Mata-Tahu’s Hau is the regular type, Greg would just assert it without reservation “as usual” (he did once).
I think there should be no reason to add at least Ambiguous expression, (I think that He remembers about Suletu, because he has be asked many similar questions from fans and his answers seem so to me)
and I would like to use this ambiguty for reinforce my headcanon that Krakua’s mask is symmetrical!
【EDIT and ADD / My speculation report about Suletu】
I read the entire series of replies with great interest!
And since yesterday, I had something to say, but I couldn’t put it into words, which made me frustrated and may have made people see me as a bit “stubborn” who won’t budge on any theory.
As a matter of fact, I have long had a speculation, bordering on delusion, about the possibility that regular Suletu was symmetrical.
I’ve finally managed to put it in writing, so anyone interested can read it in their spare time.
Suletu was originally conceived and submitted to LEGO by John Dexter, the winner of the Toa building contest held in 2005, when he entered the contest.
(In order to participate in this contest, you had to submit to LEGO a profile of the participating work Toa and a detailed description of the mask.)
In other words, this mask is almost the only one of the many Kanohi masks to have been created by a fan, not only in appearance, but even in name.
(Perhaps, the word “Suletu” was not registered as a trademark, so it may have been included in the list of available names. Also, considering the “mask setting” described later, the important thing is the setting called “telepathic mask”, and the name “Suletu” may have been added by LEGO when it was converted to canon.)
off course Greg must know this fact. And please remember a thing.
In BIONICLE project, Greg hadn’t design any set or piece, but only add stories and characters to them.
And in that time, only Greg and BIONICLE-team knows This complicated situation.(THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. PLEASE REMEMBER THIS)
The contest is in 2005, and Toa Inika’s release is in 2006.
And I remember (although I’m a little unsure) that his mask was written as “Hau” or “Hau-shaped Suletu” on the Krakua page of BS01 more than 10 years ago.
(Although he is now modified to be wearing “regular Suletu”)
When Fans saw Kongu’s “Suletu”, I think they were so surprised.
because it is unsimilar with Krakua’s one.
but they know Krakua’s one has not “true-shape”, and so, a fan asked this:
“Kongu’s Suletu is it’s true shape right?”
"Do All(regular) Suletu look like it’s mostly reptilian growth, like Kongu’s?
Greg saw this. and answered.
I guess that a very complicated situation had born here - complicated situation that never be surface as a problem if no one is aware of it.
Please remember, Greg doesn’t any design. Translation, he never design Suletu.
And Only Official staff knows complicated situation about Suletu.
This is totally my conspiracy theory, but I think he probably wanted to say at this point, “This Suletu is “Regular shape”, unlike Krakua’s Hau-Suletu”.
And we may have taken his simple reply as it was - "Oh, so these scales and asymmetries are ‘regular shape’ too!
And then there is the possibility that Greg might have thought - “Ah… Yeah, OK. That’s right.”
In the story, Greg had gave only Suletu a special origin among the six Inika Masks.
Perhaps when the design team showed him the sample, he tried to explain the reason for its asymmetry.
Or perhaps it was because Greg, despite our enthusiasm, has a side of him that often seems to be unconcerned with consistency in design.
It is also possible that he thought “let’s make scale a regular type of Suletu, because design team made this” when releasing the Suletu.
but Some, or many Fans kept asking him the questions about scale and asymmetry.
My guess is that Greg was forced to consider importantly the fact that Krakua was the wearer of this mask, and as time went by, he began to give “vague answers”.
Thank you this long writeing!
I don’t intend to force this idea on anyone at all, but please consider it just a fan’s consideration or fantasy!
