Lego didn't make the figures yet, so they are using the Inika and Piraka minfigs in their place for the prototype images.

Guess it's just an error.

And, of course, 90% of BZPers now say Spinaz. ;-)

Does no one read through the topics?

Greg posted in there saying the 'z' was a typo, and it's really 'Spinax.'

He posted it on the second page of that topic.

Toa Kongu has a great color scheme for a toa of air(finally they got it through their thick skulls that grey and green resemble air.)Yes Jaller and Hahli are awesome(the crabs probally Pewku), but I also like all of the sets not just a select few.
I doubt Pewku is coming back in the Pit. However, a little pet friend is a nice addition to the Canister sets.

Toa = Hero, right?

In that case, you want something that looks HEROIC, right?

Please tell me how these guys look heroic >_>

What makes someone look "heroic" though?
A muscley physique?
A sword instead of a gun?
I mean... fantasy stories aside, some pretty ugly bastards are often heroes in real life.
Pretty much my answer to above quote.

They look frail to me.
The Barraki are masters of their element, while the Toa are hooked up to life support devices. Look like they could drown any second.
And big guns means they need to do some overkill in the weapons department, whereas the Barraki can get away with using goofy squids due to their skill and familiarity in that environment.
Hordika... Only got one, because they displeased me so. I'm glad to see Jinzo understands that the Mahri are  freaking TOA WITH LIFE SUPPORT. You guys have yet to understand that, with water all around them, the Toa are going to have a hard time, and they're going to need weight to keep them on the ocean floor. Plus, they're maneuverability is probably zero, so what do you do when you're without speed? You get weapons.

Whatever. Im on board with the "Our heroes make our villians look heroic!" comment.

It doesnt matter what a Hero looks like - all that matters is that he/she give the IMPRESSION of a hero. The Mata did this. The Nuva did this (to an extent... gorram ugly masks). The Metru did this. The Hordika were meant to look rahi-ish, so I forgive them. The Inika could have if they hadnt given them ugly mutant masks. These guys just look THEY should be the villians, or at least berzerk sea rahi or something!
Hey, Nuva masks were streamlined with energized proto. Cut them some slack!

LOL. Heroes don't have to look heroic. And besides, I doubt anything from underwater would. (No offence underwater creatures).

Seconded. Barraki are surprisingly frightful, yet accurate, renditions of giant fish people.

I really hate to do this, but it seems I'm going to have to convey my point in a more simple and graphic manner, seeing as how a block of words isn't doing it.

Let's take a look at this, shall we?

Namor (Namor comic)
http://img250.images...52/namorte0.jpg

Aspen (Fathom comic)
http://img250.images.../3039/55al1.jpg

Princess Kida (Atlantis: The lost empire movie)
http://img249.images...2001kidatv6.gif

Will Namor here preforate me with a machine gun? Will Aspen try to eat my face? Does Princess Kida have blood veins that look like the result of far too many muscle enhancements? No, they don't. But here's what I do know. Namor could and would beat the living daylights out of you for no good reason. He would tear you to shreds in mere seconds if you tried to harm Atlantis. Aspen can manipulate water into things you couldn't begin to imagine. Kida could easily impale you with the slightest of effort while displaying incredible athletic prowness.

And do any of these 3 examples I have given look anything like a villian? I think not.

Point I'm trying to get across is that there IS a certain line at which characters look INHERENTLY evil. Just look at this:

http://img405.images...79b10e36ec6.jpg

Does he look evil? Yes, he does. Is he a villian? Of course. He's Mega-"I'm going to eat villages"-tron. But let's take a moment here. What if he saves a busload of children from falling over a bridge? What if he stops a building from colapsing? What if he saves the entire world by finding the Mask of Life? All while he selflessly helps everybody he encounters?

Then he's a HERO.

Point is, yeah, heroes don't have to look like knights in shining armour. But when something looks like a VILLIAN, my brain automatically thinks it's a villian and takes caution, because I don't want to be EATEN by said villian. Unless the villian-looking being proves it's a hero by personality, I will continue to ASSUME that it is a VILLIAN.

It's a shame that since Pirates of the Caribbean: DMC came out, everyone thinks deep sea = horrible, coral infested monsters. As I've shown above, you CAN be in deep sea AND still look like a million bucks. Once again folks, sorry for derailing the topic. I just had to clarify my views.

EDIT: And there's plenty of examples of beautiful fish. Practically everything that's at normal depths is eye candy, and some in deep water too. You also got to keep in mind that the Mahiri look to be more inspired by diving suits tha anything else (Though Hahili look like a Flying Fish). And diving suits are pretty asthetically pleasing to the eye.

Anyhoo,
X-D I hear ya! Guess everyone still likes their "Makuta" colours. Oh well, I'm sure they'll tired of "protodermic" silver one of these days. :)
Props for the Megatron reference!

However, I must disagree with your logic.

Why do you want Bionicle to be just like Namor, Kida, Aspen? You see, Bionicle is unique because it is so different. When you've got a biomechanical world where technology is thriving under the surface, you'll probably get different results than Namor.

Pewku could come back, who knows or you do have a point on Pewku never coming back, it could be a little crab Jaller befriended.

Like I said in a previous topic, the Mahri are like a dude jumping into the Amazon river, full of hungry piranha, with a machine gun or 357 Magnum.

They're doomed. lol

What you can't hit with fast skill, you try to compensate with quantity (of bullets) over quantity.
I feel SORRY for the Mahri.
If fluoride isn't dangerous, why was it added to the water in the Russian gulags and by the Germans during world war 2 to make the prisoners "apathetic" to what was going on around them?

The fact is,Pewku is larger than a Matoran (as seen in the Takua & Pewku set and the movie Mask of Light) so the Mahri crab could never be Pewku.It's probably an aquatic,younger Ussal crab.

Perhaps, considering Nocturn is mysteriously absent from the list.

Why do we always get the good stuff later?

Freaky new heads, as expected. I like that we're seeing more color in the figs.

But why oh why did they change the arms! *sing* No shoulder clips = less MOCability.

Well, they'll be rather sticky, and any action poses will be showing us the Mahri's backs. BAD STAGE BLOCKING!

Lovin' the Titans. The Mahri look much better. The playsets look good, seems like the minifigs use the neo-skeletons' arms.
Maxilo(s?) is GUNMETAL! Yay! Now he looks awesome.
