  1. Just gonna throw up a few pictures I took earlier. If anyone was wondering, you CAN actually cheat a little to attach the Corruption Masks in a way that lets you open and close the Beast mouths. Both the top and bottom jaws swing independently, which means the whole thing is a little loose, but it's a nice display option if you don't care about questionable connections. Doesn't quite work as well for Umarak though, unfortunately.
  2. Found them at a Toys R Us in Oregon, which of course means they've reached the west coast. I'd wager to guess that means they're probably at most US locations by this point.
  3. Lego sort of seems to have dropped the ball in quality control with this first batch of figures. On Terak and Umarak, at least.
  4. So are mine, as a matter of fact. I received both this issue AND the Umarak misprint in this wave. Which is great. Fortunately Terak's feet are easily replaceable.
  5. So... My Umarak's chestplate is misprinted, because that's a thing that can happen apparently. One of the green "tooth shaped" thingies isn't colored in; it's just silver. Anyone else run into this issue? I've already emailed Lego to see if I can get a replacement, but that said, this is kind of cool. I wonder how rare it is.
  6. Um... We know the MoC was on a pedestal, but the animations never said it was that one. The tone of that scene suggested it was something more ominous than the MoC, which opens up a great possibility for the GMoSS. The spires up above and behind Kulta in the shot where he takes the MoC are clearly from the bridge to the ancient city. Right, because cultural architecture is ALWAYS limited to one specific location. Got a real reason, like an official text description, rather than just guessing from one shot from a specific angle? Well that was uncalled for. At this point there's absolutely zero reason to assume these landmarks are anything but the same location until proven otherwise, especially in Gen 2 where they're trying to make things easier to understand. I doubt they'd establish iconic visual elements like the spires on that bridge and then go ahead to use the same shape when framing a different location entirely. That's incredibly misleading to the audience; something they're probably trying to avoid. I think you're forgetting that we're ALL just guessing here. I don't need your sarcasm or sass, man. I certainly don't need you jumping down my throat after a single harmless comment. And before you decide to point out that the etchings on the pedestal are slightly different, they could very well be explained by artistic license. In this shot the artists might have simply decided to add more detail on a whim. I'm just saying, it's likely that you're looking too far into things when in this case they're probably more simple than you think.

  8. Hey, i didn't know YOU were on BZPower!

  9. Is there any way to find it on YouTube ?..., i'm very interested to see what this is about but sadly i live in a country in Europe where Netflix refuses to shine. The series won't be available until next year. It's a Netflix Original, meaning that when it is released, it won't be available for viewing anywhere besides Netflix. Well. Legally, at least.
  10. Hmm, I personally interpreted those "memories" as a byproduct of the mental link the golden masks gave them to Ekimu, but you make a good point that it could mean Ekimu was actually involved in the new Toa's pre-crash-landing backstory somehow. A lot of people seem to have a lot of faith in the idea that we'll get a larger, Toa-sized Ekimu in the future, but I think a lot of that "theory" is based in wishful thinking. It's quite plausible that we might get another Ekimu set if they keep him around as a central character in the storyline, just as Ninjago gets new Sensei Wu minifigures every year. But as of right now there's really no reason to expect his size to change, any more than there's reason to expect the Toa's size to change. He could easily just get new armor the same way Toa typically do from one set incarnation to the next. After all, just because we never got additional non-Toa versions of older "mentor" characters in G1 doesn't mean we can't in G2. Curse BZPower's leak policy! Otherwise I'd have more to say about this.
  11. Calling this a "contradiction" bothers me in the first place. ... But besides that, Aanchir already explained the regions thing in post #7. Honestly, why are we using spoiler tags? I'm not sure any of this information is particularly spoilery. I'm sure anyone lurking on this thread has already read all of the existing story material so that they can understand the conflicting information. It's never mentioned at all how long it took for them to entomb Ekimu. It's also never states how long it look for the villagers to leave the Ancient City either. As I said, clearly if they have a tomb specifically for Ekimu, that means it had to have been built after they knew he needed such a thing. So using basic deduction skills we know that some villagers (or at the very least the Protectors) couldn't have evacuated the Ancient City immediately after the Great Cataclysm. Furthermore, even if the regions hadn't formed at the time as we know them now, we do know that the six tribes existed long before the disaster, because prior to that the six ancient Protectors had heralded from each them. Even during peacetime in the Legend animation, there are differently colored villagers belonging to different tribes coinciding. Remember: united but not one. In the animation it depicts the abandonment of the city after they entomb Ekimu. And I'm pretty sure they would have given Ekimu a funeral anyway considering what he did for them. And all we know is that there were protectors for each of the elements. Nothing saying they lived separately. So wait. If you agree that they abandon the city after entombing Ekimu, and you're sure they gave him a ceremony before they left... Then why are we even having the conversation anymore? Because that renders the original "contradiction" null. There would have been plenty of time to carve the elemental etchings. This is a really silly debate at this point.

  14. Treason of the highest order. I don't really care for the Noble Mahiki, the Calix, or the Elda. Most of the Nuva masks are hit-or-miss. Sometimes I like them, other times I don't... Except the Miru Nuva, I love that one.
  15. BS01 says that Kanohi Suletu are always on at a low level. This applies to the non-organic and organic forms of the Suletu as far as I know. Alright then, maybe that wasn't a kink. Thanks for the correction and scratch that last part. The rest still stands, though.
