|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.
