So why did Takua wear a blue mask in the first place? Was he color-blind? Or just retarded?

Why didn't Lego give these guys cooler, more memorable names? Like transformer names.

to make sure he looked different. I dont know all the lore but it seems he helped create the universe (or something) and then was disguised as a commoner

It was a black mask. I got that one.

Basically just to distinguish him from the rest of the Matoran, make him look like an odd man out. They gave him a blue mask because it's a primary color, like red and yellow. Color has always been an important feature in Bionicle, often denoting a character's personality traits and element. Takua's RBY scheme was probably chosen to, 1, represent a lack of nationalism between tribes, and 2, subtly hint at Takua being from a secret 7th tribe.

Of course, by the time that was formally revealed, there were like 20 new tribes with their own elements, and a whole bunch of living Av-Matoran, so Greg decided to retcon Takua into the first Matoran ever to make him seem more special.

I know right? It's all just Hawaii inspired hunga bunga shit,

How about a real name? like Bombkiller or StarSmasher or something?

>>5268928
Or Nitroblast or Stormer or Splitface or Jawblade or...

Also, he was initially with a yellow torso and red feet, OP. He was shown that way in Tales of the Tohunga as well as in a diner in that weird Lego Movie Studios PC game.

Also, wasn't Ahkmou going to be part of a secret shadow Matoran tribe?

He was suppose to be a shadow toa in 2008

Because that makes them all sound like war machines instead of actual people. Plus those names sound absolutely retarted.

This is a post from a bionicle thread thats on /k/ right now.

Because blue, red, and yellow are bright primary colors that appeal to the simple brains of children.

I always wondered why those matorans had recycled Metru masks in the exact same colors.

yeah, a bit of a letdown, they could have at least swapped colors if they reused masks
