In Need Of A Name

Posted by ToM Dracone , Jun 11 2010 · 506 views

It's been a long while since I've gone out and taken photos of Tohunga around my yard. I miss it. I mean, partly it's because I've been at college and all that, but it's also been because of a lack of new Kanohi from which to make new Tohunga. But I have some now!

First up is Shenyu, whom those of you who have been with me for a loooong time just may remember.

He's the reason I've been craving a dark blue Miru since 2003. He's a Ga-Matoran (and yes, male) who goes on a series of adventures with Hahli way back before Metru Nui (please pay no attention to canon right now), and was transformed into a Toa of Water by Mata Nui to save her from drowning in a storm, after which she never saw him again. I originally had him as a Toa of Gravity, but eventually decided I like water better.


This lovely lady does not have a name yet. And no, I don't actually own a dark blue Matatu. It's from Six's big bag of prototypes; I brought down Hahli's body when I stayed with him for ToyFair expressly for the sake of taking this photo. I wish it were mine, but hey, I have a dark blue Miru at long last, I can't possibly ask for more!

But she does still need a name. Please suggest one. Keep to 2001 naming standards. If I see x's and multiple consonants in a row besides ng, nk, and nt I will bite you.

And finally – no more photos because I don't like the ones I took – I also need a name for a Ta-Matoran with a yellow Komau, red body, and yellow feet. I think he's a lava farmer for some reason.

This came about because I was at one of my friend's houses recently going through a big plastic set of drawers he has filled with his old Lego stuffs, among which were a bunch of Bionicle sets. He had the Manas and let me keep their masks, so now I finally have the yellow Komau and an orange Ruru!

It also made me realize how drastically I lack the Turaga's Kanohi. I need to work on that.

Hmmmmm....I love naming characters. But whenever people ask or I need one for myself, my mind goes blank. Infuriating!


Okay, wow. Those are bad; guess this isn't my day for anything creative.

I covet that Matatu.

So hard.

What pretty masks. Also, that picture came out pretty well considering it involved your cheap little camera, a couple sheets of printer paper, and the horrible lighting in my apartment.

(Also, ToyFair, not BrickFair. tongue.gif)

I like LK's Leta. The only thing I could come up with was Nahlee. (Nah-Lay)

Call her Kahol; means "blue" in Hebrew and it sounds like a 2001-ish name.

Ooh, I like Whenala and Kahol a lot, though Kahol would need to be tweaked... none of the Maori-based names end in consonants. Kahloa maybe? But we also need more Wh- names. Dunno! I'll think about it.

I also like Apoura, spelled the way you wrote it phonetically...

And Six, stop making me look bad! tongue.gif You can clearly tell where my mind is right now.

There is a canon Ga-Matoran in the MNOLGII who wears a medium blue Matatu. The weaver in the eastern half of the village.

*checks the BS01 wikia*

... right. Shasa.

How's that?

She wears a medium blue Matatu and has medium blue feet. This one has a dark blue Matatu and feet. That just wouldn't do at all. Especially since a medium blue Matatu actually exists for us to build Shasa from.

Pardon my ignorance but where is the dark blue Miru from?

It's one of the prototype pieces that Lego/Binkmeister sent to Black Six to uses as contest prizes and such. I got mine from the lovely folks at Brickfair last year.
