A concerned commenter on LEGO Ideas said they couldn't help but question the scale of the dinosaurs. To help people better gauge the scale, I made this size chart. The sizes aren't perfect, but Deinonychus, Stegosaurus, and Apatosaurus all fall reasonably close to accurate scale to a minifigure. Spinosaurus, however, was small enough compared to what it should be that I felt the need to fix it.
Along with fixing the scale to a minifigure, this build also fixes the wonky legs and sparse spine of the original. The skull is still an annoyance, but there is just no way to fix that lower jaw.
Thank you, everyone who has supported my project so far! If you haven't yet and want to, it's over here.
That's interesting. Nobody ever thought there could be a reason for Makuta to put him to sleep besides a power grab. What pain does sleep spare him? What else happened to Mata Nui to cause this pain?
But nothing happened. Nobody ever alluded to that line, no pain of the sort mentioned comes up. (I suppose Mata Nui's worsening condition could count, but that wouldn't make much sense for him to allude to, especially since he was dying BECAUSE he was put to sleep iirc.) They slapped that mystery on the table and future story turned its nose up like someone had just cracked a rotten egg there.
If bonesiii was asked about this line, he'd almost certainly handwave is as "makuta lies" (and if he sees me call that handwaving he will almost certainly give me a diatribe about how it's a fallacy to call it handwaving because he cannot be wrong) and if you asked greg, he probably wouldn't even remember the line, and likely either say makuta lies, or even strike it from canon. Which would make sense, because canon did jack diddly squat with it anyway.
I wish they had done something with that line. That had the potential to pull Makuta from the depths of Angry Janitor With Lazily-Written Plans Land and maybe even dropped him into the Domain of Interesting Characters.
But they didn't. Oh, dear.
Honestly, you can make this sound like some kind of crusade for justice all you want (I'm going to hope that some of how you worded it is just meant as hyperbole to make a point, though?), but it just comes across to me as being anti-fun and anti-imagination.
There's a time and a place for joke entries to place high in a contest (actually no there really isn't but w/e), but the first site-wide BZP contest is certainly not one of those times.
The first entry offended my eyes.
Well, this was probably in the bottom 3 comics I've read in my life. Didn't make much sense, and some things were hard to read because of the coloring and font style.
