  1. MoL might have unintentionally got it right then because Lewa didn’t really follow the grammar structure of treespeak (neither did Matau)
  2. That’s why I like the Irish brogue, especially for treespeak. The randomness of the dialect, the stuntedness of the grammar, it needs something that the normal, articulate diction of a Canadian-American voice can’t capture. The wispy, breathy, rolling semi-Irish accent they used for Lewa in MoL seems like a perfect fit. It adds a kind of charm to it. It’s kind of goofy, but also really endearing, like a cool forest breeze. It was probably either called something offensive like “greenspeak” or really dumb like “the way they talk in Le-Metru.”
  3. We covered Plantlife too. Backwoods. West African. we didn’t get Sonics.
  4. I think your quarrel is with the personality not with the accent. The Irish can be as brash and acid-tongued as anyone. I know it’s kind of gimmicky, but I love it.
  5. Are you talking about Ce-Matoran? I think we covered Ce-Matoran. I like your interpretation of Av-Matoran, but I think I’d add an air of humility and perhaps a genuine goodness, because they’re about as good as good guys come. They’d probably have something resembling an Anglo-American accent, like they all went to Juilliard. Kra-Matoran would be slick, but deep-throated, resonant baritones. Some might also have high-pitched, maniacal voices. I like the Germanic accents.
  6. Magnetism Matoran would naturally have a magnetic personality. They’d be very charismatic and well-spoken, but also sympathetic and maybe even a little charming. Since they like to hang out around magnetic poles, they’d probably have New Zealander or even Nordic accents. Iron Matoran are facetious and gritty. They have a sharp wit and can be seen as the “bad boys” or societal rebels. They often make dirty jokes and can even be disrespectful or aggressive. Since they hang around in mountains and other areas rich in iron, they’d have an Appalachian or Rocky Mountain accent, with a lower-class working man’s accent. They’d all sound like the old prospector, or the blacksmith. (If you’re trying to guess what I’m thinking, look up the tribes on BS01. Think about where they live and what they do, and what are some adjectives you can apply to (element) and people )
  7. Naw. I’m kind of a die-hard on the Canadian voice actors. But I’d imagine Bo-Matoran having more of a “backwoods” vibe. Or even something from sub-Saharan Africa. Cameroon/Ethiopia/Nigeria. Bo-Matoran don’t speak. They listen. Like Le-Matoran, only quieter.
  8. Gravity Matoran are totally down-to-earth. Plain-spoken, humble, worldly. They like to keep things simple.
  9. I like the SoCal surfer accent for Po-Matoran, but I think they’d just be loud. I don’t know about slurred speech. To me it seems like Onu-Matoran would be really quiet. I like the idea of Lightning Matoran being high-energy. But I think they’d also be volatile, and have a propensity to “crack” or “snap.” Psionics Matoran would either be calm and good counselors or really strong-willed.
  10. I like the idea of introverted Ga-Matoran. The movies really played up the feminine grace and warmth, but I think that’s a good thing. Leave the spunk and attitude to Lightning or Psionics.
  11. Right? I think the Ga-Matoran would have an academic air to them. Like a Brahmin, an upper class, educated accent. They use a lot of complex words and say things in very prim-and-proper ways. The Po-Matoran would be loud and boisterous like Pohatu in MoL. Onu-Matoran would be the quiet antisocial ones.
  12. That works. I feel like they’d probably be kind of harsh. Like a little bit prone to offend people.
  13. I always pictured Ta-Matoran having much more of an acerbic wit. Le-Matoran would probably be witty, but I think they'd have a more...poetic(?) diction.
  14. I don't have anything to add as far as story, but IRL: 1: Fix. Vakama's. Mask. in Legends of Metru Nui. 2: Make a short film of Time Trap. I just read it recently and I think it deserved some kind of animation. Also would love to have seen the animators fill out The Shadowed One's model and Lariska's as well. 3. Dump all the moneys into a three-season series based on the Ignition trilogy (I even have a voice actor list I made myself!) 2005-2008 was the perfect time to make a TV show to sell toys. The Pokemon show was in its best years, there was YuGiOh, Digimon, Transformers had a bunch of series, the WB kids and Miguzi/Toonami lineups on Cartoon Network. CN would have been the the place to be too. They held a bunch of those toy tie-in products, and they weren't afraid to handle more mature material, which is still true today. And I would have made it better than Miramax's butchery. 4. Make an Artakha titan instead of Icarax or another superfluous figure.
  15. Hahli: Yes Jaller: Yuck. Pretty sure that’s Andrew Francis’s voice range. I wouldn’t want him at a lower pitch. Plus I refuse to listen to “TAKUAAAAA” for two hours. That’s why I picked Hebert. He’s a perfect transition in sound and he’s not grating to listen to. Hewkii: even bigger yuck. his voice was already cheesy in MoL. Nobody wants that. Also that’s Michael Dobson’s range. His voice would sound really dumb coming out of Hewkii’s model. Also Hewkii is voiced by Kirby Morrow.
