Can't beat the simplicity of the '01 crowd. Really couldn't pick a favorite out of those.

I'll always like the Akaku because of its telescopic gadgetronics.

 

The Avsa is pretty cool too, because it's the most bat-looking of the Phantoka Makuta Kanohi (and because Vamprah was the coolest).

from the water to the hills and vales

is a place where the dark conceals a heavenly sky

underneath is shimmering light

far along on the milky way

leading down to a place where the sun won't set at night

and the stars glow perfectly bright

Has to be the original Toa Mata set for me too. I like the design of the Pehkui/Kiril, the Avohkii and the Krahkaan, but most other masks seem to have a different style, almost. The ones I like are generally simple and clean, with a few vents here and there along with sharp angles. Plus, they look like the power, to put it that way. You can just about see the speed in the Kakama, and the enhanced vision of the Akaku.

It must be Lewa's mask from the Axalara T9 set. It just looks so dynamic and refined.

Mine would probably be the Hau or Hau Nuva. Though the Mask of Strength, Mask of Truth, and Mask of Corruption would be close seconds.

The Vahi is a close second behind the Mask of Light. The Akaku gets a Honorable mention though.

Yes, the 01' masks definitely reflected their abilities, the lenses of the akaku,  the airflow holes of the miru, the sheer power of the kakama.

While I never got to collect any masks before the silver/gold ones came with the Krana packs, I wish I had. The first masks were the best and most enriching, in my opinion, both in shape and in color.

Definitely the Pakari. It looks really cool, and when you put it on a Tohunga body, it makes your heart melt because it's so cute. A runner up would be a Kaukau because they're translucent.

The Toa Mata's masks were really cool, especially the Hau and Kakama.  I liked the '08 Makuta masks a lot, what with their savage and fierce some looks; Krika's Crast might me my favorite of that group.  The Ignika was also pretty cool.

Wow, it's really hard just to pick one coolest looking mask.

Kanohi Arthron. It just has soooo much going on, but all the little details flow together so well. It has a great shape that matches Jaller Mahri's body, creating a sort of theme, but even on its own it just has soooo much character oozing from it, second only to the original Hau, in my eyes. I think it's one of the most unique, well made and, well, beautiful masks out there.

My definite all-time favorite is the Miru, especially the original Miru. I like all it's forms, both it's Nuva forms as well as the noble version. A close second is the Pakari. Somehow it manages to be cute on Matoran and look serious on a Toa.

And I also have a soft spot for the great Huna.

Yeah, one of the great things about the masks is how versatile they were. The Noble Rau looked both calming on Nokama and menacing on Ahkmou, as the Noble Komau suited both extroverted Onewa and shy Kopeke. The most interesting example is how the Hau looked bold and heroic on both Jaller and Tahu, but terrifying on Makuta.

I find it hard to argue against the early collectible masks. Exempting those, I rather like the Faxon, Tanma's mask, and the Avsa. The Crast also attracts my eye.

By far the Vahi. It is just so sexy in it's design. So... regal. The Ignika is also pretty cool. Other than that, I love the design of both versions of the Huna.

 

Do any of you guys have the vahi? I have never seen one in real life.

 

I don't think they are that rare. I have one orange one, and three gold ones.

I know I might get flak, but, the Kaukau is the most "futuristic." It also (in my opinion) has the best looking visor, and looks great when solid silver.

My favorite is the 2001 Kaukau because of it being different from the other five mata mask and I have a liking of this mask being trans.
