Does anyone know why Jaller didn't have a right hand in the comics? He had a sword, and then he had no hand and no sword. Was it cut off? Or was this drawer's error?-Bane

I'm not quite sure what you're talking about - an image of what you're talking about would be very helpful. However, I think I vaguely recall Jaller missing a hand occasionally in the Sayger comics, especially when he did not appear in the foreground. The rough style of Sayger often led to missing details, intentional or not.He certainly never got his hand chopped off in the actual story - this is not Star Wars.

Nor is Jaller Drosselmeyer. XP -crickets a chirpin'-Anyway, I agree a picture would be helpful, but Jaller did not lose his hand (unless he left it with the crab in Mahri Nui because Matoro had a sick sense of humor, which I kinda doubt... just a little). So, yeah, I'm pretty sure what you're talking about was likely an artistic decision (such as every background matoran in the movies having the same mask, or the robots in the final battle being too small compared to an actual size ratio or Teridax dying via giant rock oh wait, that last one actually was canon... Nevermind).

No, he did not have his hand chopped off in the storyline. It might be artist's mistake - it's hard to actually convey the reasoning behind the lack of imagery of his right hand. I agree with the others, a picture to reveal proof of this would be quite helpful, if you could disclose such an image. :)

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
 
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
 
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
 
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
 
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
 
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
 
slipped away...

It's in the Sayger comics, like here, bottom panel. I'm pretty sure this was just easier to draw or looked cooler in Sayger's opinion.

Yeah, I noticed too. Only in 2006 comics, though. The artist most likely forgot it.

Nothing could prepare Sybre for the final battle.

 

Head down to Snax in the comic forum to see the battle that will determine the fate of Sybre.

Thanks, guys. Yeah, that's just one of many known instances where Sayger intentionally left details out when it suited the image he was going for, especially thinning of Piraka spines. It's just part of his style. Also, sets are just representations anyways; you could see that image as representing his hand balled into a fist for example, and the comics are always drawn in set style, not the more canon movie/book style in which you would always see a Glatorian-esque hand with fingers.Question answered, topic closed. ^_^
