So... I think that you all know what is the Bionicle story, origins or not.
Heroes that arrive on a beach of the Island of Mata Nui, destined matorans on Metru Nui, the Inika on Voya Nui, the Pit, the Core of the Universe under the sea...
We know how it went, and we know we lost. But a little rewind...
2007. The Toa Nuva went on Artahka to recive from the ruler an upgrade on their armors to be adaptive in the skies and the swamps of Karda Nui... Artahka... But... Did we really meet him? Like... A set, a comic character... No?
I think yes.
Generation 2 rebooted the Bionicle Story, presenting us new characters and locations. People liked it and people didn't. But I think that there are more links between the First and the Second Generation; this is a comment I left on another post:
1) Artahka wears the Mask of Creation and helps the Toa upgrading their armor.
Ekimu wears the Mask of Creation and helps the Toa upgrading their armor.
2) Karzahni is a crazy dude that has his own realm rebuilding matoran.
Makuta (G2) gone mad by his brother and created a powerful and EEEVILL mask.
We saw something in the final episode of Journey To One: Shadow Matorans or Shadow Beings. Who knows if those are rebuild or modified by Makuta himself or his Shadow Powers?
3) Artahka and Karzahni were brothers, like Ekimu and Makuta.
4) Why in the Promo Poster of Bionicle 2016 Umarak have the island of Mata Nui on his head? Well... There must be a link between these two Generations, right?
5) Artahka rules the Island named after himself.
Ekimu, in some kind of way, is the ruler of Okoto (since he is a really important being).
So my thought is this: G2 is the Reboot for G1, yes... But the ambience could be the same. And Okoto is just Artahka. The similiarities are too much to be the opposite.
It is true that the two islands aren't equal, but that could be the fact G2 can be a prequel for G1.
Because another thing I thought is... On the first poster of Journey To One, what are those spehers in the background? Like... One is big than the other, so they can be like Bara Magna and Bota Magna (if we are on Aqua Magna).
It's true, Artahka has different color scheme from Ekimu, and so does Makuta with Karzahni. But the two concepts are like really similiar.
What do you guys think?
