The Toa's Hideout > The BIONICLE Story > What do you all think of the Vahi in G2?


Posted by: fishers64 May 23 2015, 11:31 PM
Most of you all have seen the hidden Vahi masks that appear in the nine new animations for Bionicle G2. Do you think that they are just an Easter Egg, or something more to it than that?

Go!

I think that all the allusions to the original Vahi being only "half a mask" indicate that we'll be seeing it in the story at some point. The appearances in the animations are probably just Easter eggs though, a fun inside joke for those in the know.

I'm of the opinion that G1 and G2 won't be related in any way, so I personally think it's probably just a nice little easter egg for the G1 fans.

that said, I mean, we have no way of knowing what they have planned or what they might decide to do in the future, so maybe something more will come of it. we'll see.

Maybe Vezon will suddenly and for no clear reason appear through a dimensional gate to spew the words of Farshtey, but perhaps such thoughts are best left in the realm of nightmares.

Honestly I could see the Vahi coming back. I don't think that's a huge deviation from the new theme.

Judging by some things that may or may not have been said at NYCC, I'm pretty sure the Vahi will be making some kind of reappearance in G2.

I definitely don't think that means the two lines will be connected, though.

I'm of the opinion that if it were an easter egg, it would have appeared once as a neat little nugget for the watchful eye. But seeing as it's been in most of the promotional material and videos, it seems more like a hint than an easter egg.

I guess I can see the Vahi showing up in some form, maybe as an artifact the Toa have to find or something like that, but I doubt they'd be stupid enough to use that to connect the two lines and drag in the... less desirable bits of G1.

I can see no problem with this

We'll get A mask of time, but not a Vahi. Since it'll be a full face mask I'm wondering what it'll look like.

I'm not advocating a connection. But I think it could be a hint internal to G2 story.

Or it could be just an allusion to how long Bionicle has lasted and how much time has passed since the original story happened. Like the Bionicle story is timeless. :shrugs:

Or to how Greg would probably have kept beating the dead horse of G1 forever and ever if he could have. http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif

Nah, I think if a random picture of a horse appeared in all of the episodes, that would serve the purpose better.

A random picture of a horse would have made for better fiction than The Powers That Be.

But I digress. http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif

I mean, we could see more? Like it might actually become a plot device, what with the temple of time thingy they're doing, but at the same time I think -- for now -- it's safe to just say they're allusions to the old series.

A lot of my "oh it's probably an allusion" is more me kinda hoping they don't try to build an interdimensional bridge between the two stories and make both of them excessively more complicated and convoluted than the first one ever was.

Part of me wonders if it will lay the ground for a possible crossover, or at the very least a tribute to G1. Then again, it may be confusing to people who are unfamiliar with that generation.

Basically this. The "half a mask" thing refers solely to the visual design of the vahi itself, not to any powersets or claims it is unfinished, which is an embellishment a certain subset of the online fanbase created themselves. Time is most certainly important, and they confirmed a mask of time for the new line at NYCC.

With all the spoilers of the old mask all over the place, I assume it's going to be heavily based around it. Although I would like to see a completed version of the G1 version. http://files.b1.jcink.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif
