I admit, the new armor is pretty awesome looking, a bit of gold never hurt anyone.
From Wikipedia: "Māori language controversy
In 2002, several Maori tribal groups from New Zealand were angered by Lego's lack of respect for some of their words which were used to name certain characters, locations and objects in the Bionicle storyline. A letter of complaint was written, and the company agreed to change the names of certain story elements (e.g. the villagers originally known as "Tohunga" was changed to "Matoran") and met with an agreement with the Māori people to still use a small minority of their words.
In the story, the reason for certain name changes was dubbed as a Naming Ceremony for certain Matoran after doing heroic deeds (though the pronunciations remained the same), an example being the name change of 'Huki' to 'Hewkii'. Other names such as "Toa" meaning "Warrior", "Kanohi" meaning "Face" and "Kōpaka" meaning "Ice" were not changed."
But this is by far the most in depth retort I've gotten to date - not very often people go about siting sources though.
But I certainly look forward to Bionicle being back. ;w; I just hope they bring back Takanuva/Takua too... he was my favorite >w<
