PlasmaJaller Posted November 28, 2020 Share Posted November 28, 2020 For sharing opinions probably not a lot of other fans share. As a kid, I was pretty used to fire guys being the front and center of Bionicle. Vakama was my first fire Toa and I rooted for him in his two movies, while Takua was not always conceived as an Av-Matoran. To me, a Bionicle protagonist had to be red and wield the element of fire, cos those were symbols of courage and passion. I was pretty much a red supremacist and I kinda still am, in a way. That's why I was extremely upset when Jaller was put on the side in promotional arts of 2006. Putting the focus of an ice Toa, the very opposite of a fire Toa, was a travesty for me - where is the warmth in ice? I also had no connection with Matoro since I knew Jaller better from watching TMoL. The conclusion of the 2007 storyline didn't help kiddie me either. It was a big thing for me back then and, while I have matured out of this state of mind long ago, it has affected my brain so bad I can't get into Matoro like the fandom does. That makes me pretty sad cos poor guy never did anything wrong to get my ire, he only did what was right. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
