The Second, Not So Serious, More Light-Hearted Question(s)

Trijhak

After criticism that 'The First Question' was too much like being interrogated, I decided for a lighter, more relaxing approach.

 

 

If generation 2 bonkles have shells does that mean they're snails or turtles? If you take them off does that make them... skull skeletons?

Technically, the old BIONICLE sets had shells too. It's just one of those terms like "constraction" that fans generally didn't use until the CCBS came about. Perhaps that's understandable, since back in the days of classic BIONICLE "shell" could describe parts from any part of the body with any number of different connection points, so for identification purposes it was more useful to refer to parts as "leg armor", "torso armor", "feet", "spines", "claws", etc.

Even today, "shell" is used to describe both the base armor elements that attach with a ball-snap or various add-on elements that attach via a pair of Ø3.2mm shafts, though fans mostly use it for the former.
