After bionicle ended and hero factory started in 2011, they re-used the glatorian head. At this time, they still had the really weak joints. They used the head again in the breakout series, at this time they had improved joints that were stronger, but still had the weak joint on the head. Do you think they should of used the 2.0 heads or just made a new mold entirely? if they used the 2.0 heads, we would've gotten a rocka 2.0 helmet.

Yeah, a re-molded Glatorian head with strong joints would have been nice. I've broken so many of those dang things.

 

Also, would've been cool to get that piece in more colors. A trans-purple head would have been tiiight.  :drooling:

You know, good point. We would have have the 2.0 heads, plus new 2.0 helmets that look like the 1.0 helmets. We could get 2.0 versions of Bulk’s, Stringer’s, and Rocka’s 1.0 helmets.:)

I like the dark green color of Rocka’s Breakout head, anyway.:)

I honestly would've liked if they'd redesigned the Glatorian head with a stronger joint, the same way as they did with Toxic Reapa's feet in later production runs.

A totally new head or continuing to use the 2.0 heads could have also been cool, but that might've reduced the ability to reuse the characters' original helmets, which I thought was a really good call with that particular series.

I never noticed the feet were remade

The first batch of sets just used the old feet, but some later batches had new ones! I'm kind of disappointed the copy of the set I got only had the old ones. Here is the new version on BrickLink.

It's kind of a bummer that after going to the trouble of remolding them, they didn't end up using the new versions on any other sets…

Technically speaking we did get a stronger version with the Brain Attack wave. Just without the facial features.

Actually its a whole different head since it's slightly taller and it has a hinge for visors (used for preston and furno helmets)

These heads... Don't have a good relationship with me. Almost all of my Florescent neon heads have snapped joints. And since I don't want to use my 2015 toa pieces, they're the only heads I have. But, they don't even need a mask to look right. I rather like that versatility, though I use helmets whenever possible. A stronger head-joint and more colors would be nice, though.
