    My point is that people consider Terak the "original" because the design makes more sense for him. Terak is a mole, an earth-y creature. Melum is a.... white mole, I guess. Could Melum have been designed first? Maybe! We'll never know! But because the design feels more like an earth creature than an ice creature, people think of Terak as the original, and Melum as the recolor, and thus complain that Melum is just a clone.

    Well, a creature with large front claws makes more sense for Earth than for Ice, which could be part of it. Sure, they're arguably no better or worse than the other, but when one makes more sense than the other, the one that doesn't is going to be the one people wish was different.

    Lewa's definitely nice, but I'm not a fan of how they got rid of the keetorange and basically filled the missing space with even more silver.

    I thought trans orange worked with 2015 Tahu, but 2016 Tahu appears to have PoF's problem: far too much trans orange, not enough red.

    Do you mean Jaller? Hakaan had gunmetal, not gold. The gold twins of the Piraka were Zaktan and Reidak (who both pulled it off rather well IMO)

    I agree. Also, I'm kinda disappointed that all but one of the Toa have blue eyes. I was hoping 2016 would step forward with diversity of eye colors, not backwards.

    Visually, Onua is about 25% gold. Tahu is at least 50% gold. Considering another ~35% of him is trans orange, not red, it's easy to see how red can stop feeling like his primary color, while Onua strikes a far better balance. (Granted, with Onua's main color being the same color as most CCBS bones, it's easier for him to feel more grounded.)

    I suppose, but they seem awfully final-looking for prelims. Granted, Tahu looked pretty final before they changed his mask, and they did completely change Gali's pose, but those were more the exception than the rule.

    This seems most likely, but at the same time, I'd expect one of their poses to show it off if that were the case. But in all the pictures, their shoulders and hips are in the same plane. If their function was torso rotation, I'd expect at least one of them to be showing it off.

    Actually, it's that the head is designed to slip over the top of the Toa's masks when the creature is snapped onto the Toa's back. With that in mind, making two different head molds that would still need to generally be the same shape in the front would be a waste.

    Oh my god. The complaining has come full circle. We now have people complaining about armor that attaches exactly like armor in G1.

    It looks fairly animation accurate to me, and it certainly doesn't look broken. (For starters, if anything it's got more on it than the animation mask, not less.) Chances are the differences can be chalked up to working with a preliminary design and/or the simplification involved in the current animation style. Huh? As near as I can tell, the Toa's builds are all completely symmetrical barring weapons and Gali's shoulders. I'm pretty sure the technic is just an attempt to try some different ways of building limbs. Which, in my opinion, is a little hit-or-miss right now. Anyway, I gotta agree with DV; these don't seem to quite live up to the 2015 Toa's standard. (Though it could just be the same reason I haven't fallen in love with an Ace Attorney Pursuit theme since the first one; the original was so iconic and defining for what it should be that attempts to recreate it just can't live up to the expectation.) I'll need better pictures to pass final judgement, but I can't say I'm the biggest fan right now. And Umarak's legs are quite the mess. It's like if you built legs the same way Gadunka built a body. It's not a good look. The creatures look cool, though the Creature of Stone is rather lackluster, and I can't quite get a good enough look at the Creature of Water, but its build looks a little iffy as well. Still, it's not every day you see more than one arthropod as a good guy. (I'm a little disappointed the Creature of Fire is the only dinosaur, though.)

    I definitely prefer Vader's sleek, solid build to Grievous's mess of bones and weirdness.

    You can't assume LEGO doesn't have a problem with it. It took LEGO a while to respond to the set list, and that was on the front page of several sites. This discussion in a subforum could just be going under their radar.

    Which doesn't make it not wrong. People murder all the time. Doesn't mean murder isn't illegal. Is this your "solid reasoning?" Because it's fundamentally flawed.
