I wont spoil it for you, you just have to heed Mark's advice on what to look for, but it is unmistakable. I think Warhammer does coincidentaly have a very similar helmet design, but in this case it is clear a BIONICLE design was barrowed, either as an easter egg or because somebody improvised.

Is it supposed to be the blue Hau-looking thing? I mean, I can see it, but it's about as close to the Hau as this thing's face.

I checked my warhammer dark crusade game, and they do have a similar style of helmet, but not the pronounced ridge. The lines and ridge just above the eyes on this particular image are almost a dead match for the hau mask. If not for that ridge, I'd dismiss it as coincidence.

This isn't an easter egg or an unintentional copy. The design of Space Marine power armour pre dates Bionicle by atleast 20 years. It has remained almost the same since Jes Godwin did the first desidns for the Space Marines when Games Workshop started to make Rogue Trader, the Game that birthed Warhammer 40000.

I actually thought the same when I first looked at the video, and replied to the email saying its likley just a similar design since I remembered my warhammer game having that eerily similar helmet.

In that particular shot called out by Mark I could have sworn it was a hau, especialy after checking the games and not seeing that ridge design, and the movie makers having made some bionicle films, putting two and two together I thought it was a real easter egg.

After looking at the video again and watching the other troopers, the white armored ones in particular, I can see the ridge design present in them too, but from the side view it doesnt have the hau style lines. Its just that particular angle in those frames that looks similar, so you guys are right. Now I cant see why I made that mistake in the first place.
