Hello Mr. Farshtey . Could you answer some questions for me?
1.Do SM inhabitants have blood?
2. Do SM inhabitants have hair?
3. If a toa of sonics did a nova blast would it create a sonic boom?
4.There is a debate at BNG. Does Krakua wear a normal shaped Suletu or one shaped like a Hau?
Thank you for your time.


1) Most likely, though it may not look like ours does
2) Probably, yes
3) That’s one thing that might happen, yes
4) A normal shaped Suletu would not look like a Hau, and the model is obviously wearing a Hau, so he cannot be wearing a normal shaped Suletu.

...So does Krakua actually wear a Suletu in the shape of a Hau? Sounds sorta nice.

If you think about it, they can make any mask with any power in any shape :P

Isn’t that what the Hagah have? I seem to remeber they had masks honoring other heroes.

It’s what Norik has, at least. But yeah, masks with irregular shapes are rare. It’s like having a desktop PC that looks like a fridge, suitcase, etc.

Hey, Greg. I hope you don’t mind receiving yet another list of questions in a no doubt already overflowing mountain of questions. Feel free to skip over this if it gets too much. :)

1) Are any of the MU inhabitants capable of tears?
1a) And the SM inhabitants?

2) In Dark Destiny, Onua removed all of his armour in order to gain the Matoran trust. What would he look like? Like a fully organic being? Or an organic being with robotic parts here and there? Or other?
2a) As Onua removed the armour, it raises the question to me, if someone like a human could wear the armour?
2a) Finally, what would happen if a human, or something with similar intelligence donned a Kanohi?


1) Not that I am aware of
1a) Yes
2) Onua is not an organic being. He is mechanical parts fused together with organic tissue, so mostly mechanical in appearance.
2A) Irrelevant, since there are no humans in the BIONICLE universe
2b) About the same thing that happens when you hold a AA battery in your hand -- nothing. Kanohi are not designed to provide power to humans.


Unfortunate I got the irrelevant answer in 2a. It’s something I really would have liked to have known about. Still, I shouldn’t press further, I don’t want to make a nuisance of myself and that’s the answer Greg wanted to give.

You should have said if a glatorian could wear the armor.

Yes, but it’s possible to be constructed.

Hi Greg,

Hope all is well. I have one quick question for you.

1) In the Mata Nui Online Game II, one of the characters refers to the 999 or so years of Teridax harrassing the Matoran on Mata Nui as "the Dark Time" (capitalized). This is a purely technical question, but can the fanbase consider this term to refer to all of the events that took place in the MU during this time (Mahri Nui’s formation and break-off, the first Mazeka and Vultraz confrontation from Brothers In Arms, etc.)? It would allow us to organize our saga guides and timelines accordingly.

Thanks so much.

Triggy


Go ahead


This is to benefit all us BS01 types trying to organize our saga guides and timelines. B)

anyone know how to get in contact w/greg.f? is there a link? :???: :wacko:
#13253
thanks :D

Hi Mr.f
I hope every thing is going well.
sorry to hear about the diabetes I was diagnosed a few tears ago w/ type 2.
congrats on the baby.
just a few questions
1. could there be a mask of plant life
2. could you release the wining entry for the who am I contest.
3.I have autisum, has any one with autisum influinced your life, or do you know any one with it?
Thank for your time, i hope every thing goes well with the baby.


1) Yes
2) It is going to be appearing in story, I don’t plan to post the actual entry online.
3) Yes, I have a very good friend who has Asperger’s Syndrome. We met in 2003, I believe, when he was 8, and I am still in touch with him and his Mom.

A few questions here:

1. BS01 says this about Matoran of Gravity:
The Matoran do not have access to the element itself, but can manifest their own power in an acute way.

What exactly does this mean? Is it something like the abilities of Av-Matoran, or is it just a vague way of saying that they have elemental traits, like any Matoran, that are unspecified as of now?

2. Is it necessary to run Matoran prefixes through legal before releasing them? Most of them are only two letters, after all, and
I’m sure that most of them are already words in many languages. Perhaps the fans could vote for Matoran prefixes sometime?


1) No idea what that refers to, I didn’t write it and it doesn’t make sense to me either.
2) I don’t really see the point of coming up with prefixes for Matoran who aren’t showing up in story. If I need a prefix, I come up with one.
#13255
mask of plant life, in the future, please don’t double-post.

Greg’s answer in bold.

Hello again, Greg. Hope you’re well. :)
2. How did Teridax unleash the virus that caused Mata Nui to sleep? My guess is that he teleported to Mata Nui’s brain, took out the two Glatorian, inserted the virus, and for it to work properly, he absorbed all the energy from Metru Nui’s power source when he revealed himself to the Toa Metru. Is this correct?

2) No. The Glatorian died in the crash. What Teridax was using was a computer virus, so it could be introduced from a number of different sites.

That’s the answer you gave to me on one question I asked. I’m confused - does this mean Teridax had access to computers?

It means Mata Nui had AI, which is machine intelligence, therefore to shut him down you needed a virus that worked on machines.

When did Teridax release the virus? When he revealed himself?

No. That was when the virus finally finished its work. But we know that Mata Nui was already aware of what was happening to him prior to that.
#13256
This likely isn’t the correct place to ask... but does anyone think that Lego would react aggresivley to the production of Bionicle: Next Generation, over copyright claims or something?
Or... has this already been established?

Bah humbug I’ll change it. It’s basically saying that they can manifest their powers in a small way, as all Matoran can. Makes sense to me, but eh.
#13259
Just for lulz.

Hi, GregF :)
Well, I know already from Tren Krom that you’re a fan of H.P. Lovecraft, since he’s Cthulhu-inspired and all, but when that bright, tentacled, ancient being appeared in Sahmad’s Tale, that struck me as WAY more Lovecraftian, because of how horrifying the concept is.
I just wanted to ask the question - was this thing at all inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos or Weird Horror in general? If you can’t answer at this point that’s okay, but I just wanted to know as a little fun fact since I’m a fan of the genre.
Thanks,
Cap’n K


No, not really.
#13260
to the matoran of gravity question, could a Matoran of gravity have better sense of balance? because small abilities like that are best.

Mr. Farshtey,

after learning that GN10 will no longer be published, I need to ask you some questions I counted on being answered there:

1)How did Tarduk manage to reach the center of the Valley of the Maze? The first traps were almost deadly even for Mata Nui, and Tarduk didn’t know the answer to the riddle of the Great Beings.
1a)How did he end up chained?

2)How were the Element Lords trapped after the Core War? I’ve asked you this question many times, but now that Gn10 will no longer come out I expect no answer will be given.
2a)Will the Element Lords ever be featured again in future story?

3)When the work on GN10 was first halted, you said that if it wasn’t published, you’d post the part you’d already written on Bzp. However, you now said that the script is Papercutz’s property and therefore you can’t post it here. Could you explain the contradiction?
3a)Also, if the script is ever published, will it be canon?

Thank you for your time,

Toa of Italy


1) None of that was written yet. I don’t plan my stories ahead of time, I come up with them as I write.
1a) Same answer
2) Same answer
2a) No idea at this point
3) Simple. When I gave the initial answer, they had stated they would pay me for the work I had already done but I had not decided whether to take them up on that offer. Once I did accept the offer, the script became theirs and I can’t do anything with it.
3a) Yes, but I doubt it will ever be published.


Great. Now the only hope of getting these questions answered will be to make a GN10 contest. I’m still hoping for it.

Hello Mr.Farshety,
1. I was wondering can alternate universes be created from other alternate universes? Like for example say could an alternate universe come into being where the Toa Empire and Tuyet killed Takanuva and his allies?
2.When a Mask of Intangilibity user activates his/her Kanohi does he/she automatically sink into the ground?
3. Will it ever be revealed what became of the Toa Empire?
4. Will any of the Toa Nuva die in The Powers that Be?
5. When Toa Tanma became a Toa in The Kingdom did he re-change his color to gold/white?
6. Who is older Berix or Tarduk?
Thank,

1) Yes
2) No
3) I don’t have plans to go back there at the moment
4) I can’t discuss future storyline plans
5) Yes
6) Tarduk

Woah, woah, woah . He just essentially confirmed an alternate universe where Tuyet killed Takanuva... but Takanuva was from the main universe . That means in this alternate universe... that Takanuva must have come from yet another alternate dimension, which is exactly like the main universe except that Takanuva never made it to Karda Nui.
Pretty deep.

Please- let’s not get into the cannonizing random alternate universes thing. There could be an alternate universe where Makuta tripped in a place where he didn’t in the core dimmension. There could be an alternate universe where Mata Nui is a flying potato man. And for all we know, there could even be an alternate universe where the entire bionicle mythos is an imaginary storyline centered around plastic toys. :P

I did’nt have the intension of Greg canonizing that it was an alternate universe; I just used it as an example. Their is an infinite amount of alternate universes so I d’ont think it would be worth canonzing every single one. :rolleyes:
#13268
Well, at least according to BIONICLE rules, EVERY alt. universe is canon. Every possible outcome of every possible situation will have an alternate dimension. Everything that possibly could exist has it’s own alternate dimension. There are an infinite number of alternate dimensions, and the amount of them is constantly growing.
#13269
Please - enough scientific things have been canonized, killing the mysical 2001 feel. Let’s not do more of that.
#13270
OK, the point was not that it was canonized, but that it was possible. It still makes my brain hurt.

I think this subject of discussion should probably be taken elsewhere. Speaking for myself, it’s starting to get a little irritating.
#13272
So I guess there’s an alternate dimension where biomechanical beings are sitting at their computers on a forum discussing our lives.

Pretty deep.

Actually, it doesn’t quite work that way, because an alternate dimension is formed when one dimension splits into two. Meaning one Takanuva went into one alternate universe, which later became two alternate universes; one with "our" Takanuva in it and one with a dead Takanuva in it.

Discussion about alternate dimensions can be redirected to the Official Dimensions Topic.

Hey GregF,
I just had a quick question: Is the pronunciation of Shadow’s prefix, Kra-, this: krah?
Thanks.

"bionicle: the game" is an old, mostly-canon platform game released several years ago. while perusing the gallery for this game on BS01, i found that of the many enimies in the game, only 2 have not been seen before: a fox-like rahi and a whale rahi (click links to see bs01 images)

since almost all of the game is canon i assume these are real rahi, but to avoid potential arguments, can you confirm these rahi actually exist?

thanks, i appreciate it. ;)


Yes, they do.


yay . 2 new rahi .

BIONICLE: The Game is almost completely NON-canon. I guess the Rahi are canon, but everything else? No, no, no, no, and no. :P

The mask of elemental energy is semi canon.

No, it’s full canon. We just haven’t seen it in a canon source yet.
