    Taipu is the awesomest character in the entire gen1 canon. He wears a Ruru, not a Pakari. I will fight you on this point.

    Pre-mutation Nidhiki's Mask of Stealth was shaped the same as the Kanohi worn by the Matoran Defilak and Toa Hagah Iruini. I will fight you on this point too.

    As you can see, my greatest interests are stubbornness and denial. Other interests include the trans-girl!Tamaru headcanon and the abolition of monogender elements.

  1. Just hit ten years a few days ago, so I've been here almost half my life. I was 12 when I joined. The Short Stories subforum was like 60% songfics and I don't think anybody writes those anymore. That's probably the most drastic change, other than various rule loosenings. It's funny, but I tend to use joining this site as a turning point in the chronology of my life, and oftentimes find myself dating various events as "x years before/after BZP." Since joining, I've become an obsessive musician and realized that everyone, myself included, was totally wrong about what gender I am for two decades. Those are about the only major changes I've undergone.
  2. 3/5 symphonic metal generally is not my thing -- the operatic chanting at the beginning caught my attention, so I was a little disappointed when all the singing wasn't like that. There was so much going on, though, so it held my curiosity all the way through. well you get 5/5 for recognizing a flugelhorn when you see one, and bonus for not hesitating at the sight of banjos
  3. 5/5 this is part of a very specific subset of music that I never deliberately seek out and only ever encounter very late at night. if it were any other time of day I would not be into it. I also just love long songs that are interesting enough to actually work as long songs and this is one of those
  4. 4/5 it's nice being able to see the lyrics, and the chill instrumental interlude made for some really good contrast in textures https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvXROes0ar8
  5. He probably meant the 2005 version, Salvus. No biggie
  6. Apparently, theories for diminishing the astronomical proportions of the Mata Nui robot are a recurring trend as well. I myself am guilty of contributing to this phenomenon
  7. as a Massachusetts resident I can confirm that Massachusetts is 100% not real Good luck!
  8. I love the water Toa's unconventional limbs -- she actually looks very watery in places, and the agori heads look really cool as hips. She also looks like a tank, which is awesome. I also love the fire Toa's sword. He and the iron Toa could probably use larger feet, though -- with the short, stocky proportions of the team, the smaller Protector feet look a little disproportionate. The iron Toa's lower legs, however, are fabulous. Not quite right, friends. Plasma colors are orange and white; the ice Toa is white and orange And orange being his secondary color makes perfect sense -- he's very obviously inspired by Ice Planet 2002
  9. Not true. There are many sapient non-Matoran species that are also not Rahi, such as Vortixx, Skakdi, etc. Multiple people in this thread have already pointed that out.
  10. It's a toss-up. I'm partially inclined to say Adventurers; I remember getting these three sets for Christmas of 1998, and then this one for my sixth birthday a couple months later. However, I never actually understood the theme. I recall that I simply referred to Johnny Thunder as the "Scorpion Tracker man" for several weeks, until one of my friends, having a more extensive knowledge (and collection) of LEGO kindly informed me that the minifig in the Scorpion Tracker was Johnny Thunder, and that the identical minfig in the Oasis Ambush set was his twin brother Jacky Thunder. It was another year before I realized that there is no Jacky Thunder and that my friend was making stuff up those biplanes, though It's probably fairer to say that the first theme I was really and truly a fan of was Life on Mars. It also remains the only theme which I collected in entirety, beginning with Red Planet Cruiser for my birthday in February 2001 and concluding with Worker Robot and Jet Scooter discovered by chance at a store in Waltham, Massachusetts which sold nothing but building toys (sadly, now a thing of the past) in December 2002.
  11. Or whether Keetongu and Krahka could be compelled to the bidding of someone wearing a Mask of Rahi Control
  12. FOUL! REF!
