To put it simply, they, two members of the Warrior unit, breached Wall Maria for two reasons. To create a distraction to break inside and infiltrate Paradis. To force the royal family to make a move, and possibly show that they had the Founding Titan.
Why did the colossal Titan and the armored titan destroy only the gates of Wall Maria and not Wall Maria itself?
The walls are made of a number of colossal titans hardening their skin. The only weakest part of the wall is the gate, which is made of some other weaker material for movement. That’s why the colossal titan targeted the gate. However, he had enough strength to break the wall itself.
It’s the special power of colossal titan, it uses the muscles and mass of the titan body and burns them to create such a massive amount of heat, the bones are only thing in it’s body which do no burn, that’s why it doesn’t have any skin because it fades due to the heat.
It’s because he controlled his explosion to be a bit weaker, so Reiner doesn’t get caught in it and die. And the reason why Armin’s was more powerful right here: Is because Armin used and controlled the Colossal Titan’s ability to explode on transformation to it’s full power. Both have equal power.
During the Battle of Shiganshina, he covered some amount of distance towards the Wall in order to capture Eren and at same time, continuously emitting steam. As a result, his overall physical structure got thinner and slender (similar to Armin’s case).
As for the facial structure of Armin’s Colossal Titan, it’s nose are clearly not visible ( it’s more like a skeletal nose) and here’s an another explanation behind it. It’s most likely that the facial structure was adapted from Armin’s mindless Titan form.
Armin’s titan. It’s simple because Colossal Titan is a very big titan to transform and it takes lots of energy. Armin clearly said that the more times Bertholt transforms the more skinnier he became. So it was the first time Armin transformed thus it was bigger than Bertholt’s titan.
