Does anybody have an idea on how the Barraki looked like before the mutation in the Pit? Are there any canonical clues? Or maybe you have your own ideas?

No one knows, but I'm pretty sure that Ehlek looked pretty similar, if not the same. Nocturn, while not an actual Barraki, looks the exact same.

But that RPG is dead.

I found a little bit ago they could wear masks. So I'm going to guess they may have had a toa like body, excluding Ehlek, who proby was mutated a litte bit.

Ehlek and Nocturn were likely both completely changed. Just because you can breathe water, that doesn't mean you can't be mutated vastly by the mutagen.

Want to know how to make a blind Toa cry?

                   

                       Give him a Kanohi Hau.

No we have confirmation that Nocturn was immune. It said so in one of the comics.

 

I don't see why everyone thinks Ehlek didn't get mutated. The Barraki were described to have been handsome rulers and in the prime physical condition.

Ehlek was native to ocean, so he has probly dealt with some funky water, but was still mutated a little. His face, base, and musle tone were probly changed. But mainly he is from the ocean, that is probly why people don't think Ehlek was didn't get mutated, to awnser your question.

Given that I'm using images for the history retelling I'm writing I've had to deal with this, and I decided to "cheat" and use (for most of them) the LEGO minifig-like playset versions of them as their original forms (with an edit to just two eyes for Kalmah, and Carapar wasn't available for this, though). Likely this is not at all canon, but I like it that way. :P

 

We do know that Ehlek got his spines from the transformation, and in general the clearly sea-creature-like animalistic features were added. So IMO they were basically "alien humanoids" in general, not necessarily so clearly animalistic but probably also not that similar to Matoran or Toa. And the minifig versions nicely fit kinda in that "range" if you will.

 

For Carapar I used an edited concept art of Pohatu from the Faber Files. You'll have to wait for the story to see them though. :P

Their heads weren't all animal-like and probably had shape similarities to Toa, maybe. And without things like claws, spines, fine, etc.

Can I ask where could I find the concept art for Pohatu on Faber Files?

As long as there is one bionicle fan out there there is still hope for bionicle to return. Keep faith. Bionicle is amazing.

 

QUOTE
And also, incidently, why people shouldn't be acting like Bionicle's "dead" -- it's still continuing in story form unlike just about any other line and has a very strong chance of coming back some day, so it's wisest for people to remain interested in LEGO, showing their support for HF, etc. The best way, as we've shown long ago, for Bionicle to come back, is for us to be on here showing support for HF and Bionicle at the same time, accepting both, knowing that one day HF too will lose the "new factor" and eventually Bionicle will be ready to come back.

I doubt that is canon. That is just someone's rendition of what they thought the Barraki looked like/

He probably knows that and was just showing a nice option of what they might have looked like. :)

 

I lolled at Takadox looking like a fortuneteller.
