I have a dark red noble Komau
backstory: i remember finding this in a huge bin of parts i got from a garage sale 6 years ago. i remembered noting the odd colour but never thought back twice... me and my buddies just said "cool" and went on with our bionicle loving lives.
4 days ago: i was cleaning my room and i found a Kopaka canister in my closet, and inside was my old kanohi collection :') after looking through them and feeling the rush of nostalgia i saw this again. now im really curious about it, i know enough bionicle lore, legends and information to know that this mask isnt normal. Ive been lurking the internet for the last few days and i cant find a single thing on it. BUT i did find something interestingly similar in this thread: http://www.bzpower.c...058&hl=official at the bottom it mentions a dark blue Matatu. i cant find anything on the dark blue Matatu either.
The mask itself: Ive done all the tests on BZPower, held up to light, put in hot water, paint thinner, nail polish remover, nothing worked. Im 100% sure this is molded red plastic. Compared to my other Komaus there are a few differences.
1. the "knobs" on the bottom of its "nose" are less defined
2. The inside (back) of the mask is missing the "nose" detail
3. the biggest thing: There are no codes or engravings on the back at all (that the originals have) but theres is a stamp that says shows +1
4: it is not a solid colour, it is a dark red plastic with copper sparkles in it.
The last thing leads me to believe this isnt a misprint, but a protoype
hopefully these pics will show what i am talking about
Sorry that 1 pic is sideways.
EDIT: pic was repeated
