Bricklist notes
Brutaka is one of the first sets to include new ball-joint molds, and while he doesn't have many complexity in the building, he's full of details, without to mention that he's a lot taller than his predecessors. There are many clever usage of armor pieces (regular ones, Bohrok eyes and even feet) clad in gold, without to mention the building of a third finger in the Piraka feet.
He also has additional limbs with blades, poseable to serve as cover on the back as well.

Bricklist notes
Fenrakk is the main spotlight here, with not a complex yet clever build, with the juxtaposition of Piraka bodies and liftarms, leaving the right space to Vezon fit above him yet giving the beast a good size. Yet imposing, the back paws of Fenrakk are much smaller than the frontal ones.
Vezon is an improved Piraka figure with armor on a body that was design to "need no armor". Fenrakk's face is a solid piece (the same of the Vikings' Ofnir Dragon), yet the head itself is well-built.

Bricklist notes
Another set with a huge face piece, and as well with a good structure hidden under it. On Gadunka we can note how fitting three Inika bodies and some liftarms can still make a good yet large figure. The Ehlek's spines in silver make up a menacing row of teeth.
Its legs are connected with extra limbs to two ball-joints each on the large body, supposedly to make up with the height and size of it. Yet that usage of "extra limbs" has been over-used on regular-sized Titan sets later on (Icarax, Tuma, Rotor, etc).
All in all, Gadunka has neither the complexity of older Titan sets or the armor and details of Brutaka, yet the shape of building and the imposing looks of the huge head and claws make it fit for the list.

8924: Maxilos and Spinax

Bricklist notes
Maxilos is one of the most flexible Titan sets, and ironically he's just a random robot in the Bionicle story. Part of its flexibility derives from the Throwbot limbs that make up his back and connect to his arms, giving an extra move in the body. Yet the body of the figure is full of hollows, they are necessary and the armor on the front make the best it can to cover it. His feet are big sized for him to keep on feet, his weapon is huge and his shoulder armors are masks.
Spinax has a simple build, based somewhat on the Barraki set Ehlek, and though his limbs are simple (guess it didn't need to be complex for a secondary figure), he is still good to play with as a quadrupedal beast.

8940: Karzahni

Bricklist notes
This set is totally worth, for here we get two mahri Nui Matoran (in my opinion, the best small set shape and build that there ever was), a trap and Karzhani himself. Karzhani is one of the most inventive sets, for his hands are made out of heads, his knees are actually faces and his head is made ouf of feet. The inventive usage of pieces make reference to the latter period of Bionicle, while the armor covering him and the simple feet and addition of the "pistons" behind the legs are typical to Titan sets of this time.
The trap is a junction of Technic liftarms and Bordakh's blades. They are functional and can grab the Matoran. Overall, this is a great example of a Titan set that makes playbility full without requiring additional sets.

Bricklist notes
The Swamp Strider is a great vehicle to be used by the simple Av-Matoran. The lower part of it has four paws that are easy to be moved and make up the necessary balance and sustain to the vehicle. The medium part of it are just lift arms connecting one part to another, they possibilitate the cannon to aim higher and lower.
The structure of the cannon is quite simple, yet the manual function of disparing it requires even less complex structures to work out. All in all, the size of the vehicle can shift by the manner you aim or rotate the cannon and how you poses the legs. Mazeka himself is just a repeated and recycled figure.

Bricklist notes
Toa Mata Nui will serve as example of 2008's Takanuva build, a quite simple yet efficient manner to make huge figures. While Takanuva has an Inika body sustained by three bars, Toa Mata Nui have a built-up body. His legs doesn't include smaller limbs to connect on the body, yet he has "pistons" that does make the same effect - limitate the playability of the legs to supposedly sustain the body. Another difference here are the arms on the back, that does the same in relation with the arms (more complex than the usual Tiatan figure which use just large connectors). Just like Takanuva, Toa Mata Nui uses "Technic Liftarm with Fan" on the legs and have huge feet (like 12 studs large)
