I've been thinking recently that it looks like LEGO may not have had an entirely clear idea on how to handle the different variations of the Kanohi Kaukau from the get go and I suspect they may have even experimented with matching the mask color to the color on at least some Toa Mata, which might explain why we got a trans-yellow Kaukau even though none of the Toa are even remotely yellow. Considering how only some of the solid Toa colors can be approximated with transparent plastic (looking at you, Pohatu) and also considering the fact that the six Kaukau are already the odd six out of thirty-six by design, do any of you think that it may have been a better idea to just match those to the eye color of each Toa instead? Of course, that would've required that some Toa have better eye colors to begin with (looking at you, Tahu), but does anyone agree that that would've been an overall interesting and perhaps more consistent approach? If we consider the eye color of each Toa their "tertiary color," then that decision would've made sense in terms of uniformity and consistency. Personally, I can easily imagine a scenario where the Toa Mata had Toa Metru eye colors and each Kaukau matched each Toa's eyes. Here's how that would've looked: Lewa with a trans dark red Kaukau Kopaka with a trans medium/light blue Kaukau Gali with a trans orange Kaukau Tahu with a trans light green Kaukau Onua with a trans dark green Kaukau Pohatu with a trans dark blue Kaukau Perhaps it's a little counter-intuitive, but I do see a great deal of appeal in this approach. What do you guys think?
So I read about this obscure meme about Orange Transparent Chainsaw, so I tried to make a MOC out of that, under the name of Energy Saw. Obviously I couldn't make it spin in the conventional way, so I was thinking of those hedge trimming saw things.Gallery
