Emerging Defender of Mata Nui

Emerging Defender of Mata Nui (138/293)

  1. In a vacuum, Tohunga is a pretty cool word and I'd probably prefer it over Matoran. But knowing what I do, I have to prefer Matoran.
  2. He looks epic, very creepy and alien. Especially his swords, which is what they're supposed to look like. I also like the shield hat: terrifying, and functional.
  3. The weird thing is that... TLR Strakk is just nothing like Strakk otherwise. Strakk is, if anything, too coldly detached from fighting (like only helping for money). Him attacking Ackar is stupid. What did he think would happen?
  4. I came here to say Solek. I'll give the Agori and Stars credit for at least starting to do something with the terrible Karda Nui Matoran build. It's a tough question. There are very few Bionicle sets that I could say are outright bad, even if some are weak. For every terrible set, I can think of at least one good thing about it, even if it's that I just enjoyed building it (like Krekka).
  5. I’m 26, I still own and enjoy all of mine (200+). I don’t plan on ever selling them. Do what makes you happy. If you have other things in your life that make you more happy, focus on those. If looking at your bonkles and holding them in your hands makes you happy, do that.
  6. Officially, he is Makuta in disguise talking to himself, and the pool is a mirror reflecting his true self back at him. The novelization is more clear that it is a mirror. Unofficially, it is almost certainly a leftover from an earlier version of the story involving Dume actually betraying the Matoran. Dume is almost always portrayed negatively in the story up to that point, so him having been in stasis the whole time feels to me like a late addition.
  7. This movie is kind of just a poor man's Kung Fu Panda. With regards to the movie this one is directly based on (Blazing Saddles) you should 100% see it.
  8. Stuff like this is why I watch the credits. It was an okay movie on the whole, but seeing his name again in a movie made it all worth it to me. I did some research afterward to make sure it was the same Bob Thompson who was Bionicle's former head, and it was. He works for a company called Paterson James now: http://www.patersonjames.com/team/production-executives/
  9. I just had to look up Core Hunter to remember what he looks like, and yeah, that's pretty lazy. At least the Barraki jaws had some distance between them before closing.
  10. Just curious, do you mean BZPower member over 20 years old or members of BZPower for over 20 years? I think BZP itself is 20 years old, if it's the latter. If you mean the first, then hello to you, too. I turned 20 six years ago. I've only been on BZPower for 15 years, though. Still, it's pretty crazy to think I've spent more of my life as a member than not as a member.
  11. “A nice nod,” to what exactly? What’s the purpose of them being connected in some way if none of the characters involved interact or know of each other (which I reiterate is not necessary). At this point, them being in the same multiverse doesn’t really mean anything more than either being in the same multiverse as our reality would mean. I can appreciate the attempt to connect them without involving their stories, but the multiverse is itself a fictional concept (or at least a scientific concept so far removed the public only learns about it through fiction). Each multiverse story (including G1) has its own rules, so having two storylines being within the same multiverse is, inherently, tying them together in a needless way. (For the record, I think almost all multiverse stories that aren’t specifically written to feature alternate realities from the start shouldn’t.) The stuff like the Mask of Time and the shared names is, in and of itself, the nod to the fans. This thing from when we were kids has a new and modified meaning for new kids. That’s the reference, and it shouldn’t mean anything in-universe.
  12. Looks like someone just saw the new Doctor Strange. I still can't fathom what could possibly be gained by linking the two generations up. They both have their own strengths and weaknesses (some leaning more on one side or the other) that don't really create a ton of possibilities justifying it. When there are hundreds of different realities, it just opens up a can of worms that doesn't need to be opened and makes it more difficult to invest in what's going on, as well as destroying any sense of scale. Some properties (Back to the Future, MCU) can mostly pull it off, but they're created with it in mind. Yes, they share some names and tropes, like the Mask of Time. That's for us, the fans, as fun easter eggs. It saps all the energy out of it to try to create some convoluted way they're secretly one timeline.
  13. Beautiful. I could look at it forever, especially that glorious third column.
