I have some new stuff. Enjoy:

To Mr. Farshtey,
Some more questions on the BIONICLE Universe:

1. When a Toa becomes a Turaga, how does that Toa's mask automatically turn into the Noble mask's official shape, as the Toa Metru's did? After all, you could make a mask into a different shape, as with the Toa Hagah.

2. If Jovan's team didn't use the Ignika in TWTFTW, where did they use it?

3. If the Toa Mata's Toa canisters malfunctioned from a simple accident, how come the canisters are still regarded as valuable transport? After all, if the canisters can fail Toa with such important destinies, there would be bad reprecussions.

4. Concerning #3: Why was it the Toa Mata's canisters that chose to act up, and not a lesser Toa team's?

5. Again concerning #3: Have other canisters malfunctioned the way the Toa Mata's did? Or was that the only case?

thank you so much for your time,
Shyyrn


1) My assumption is that the wearer's knowledge of what the Noble Mask shape would be governs the transformation
2) I haven't said where they did or did not use it. Since it impacts future storyline, it's not something I am discussing.
3) That's sort of like asking, "If these 100,000 cars needed to be recalled because of brake problems, how can cars still be considered valuable transport?" You're talking about six canisters out of potentially dozens that are in existence.
4) Mechanical things don't "choose" to break down. They just do. Re: #3, if your car's brakes fail, did they choose to do so? Should they have failed on a car belonging to someone less important than you are? And how would your brakes know how important you are?
5) Not to our knowledge

As you can see, I had a lot of questions about canisters on my mind, so I'm glad that I got them answered. :D

not something important but it may be :)
i looked on Biosector01 and noticed this



is this true?


Last part definitely is, because it refers to Tuyet. And the first part most likely is -- Lhikan's team was, for the most part, lured to their deaths prior to the events of BIONICLE: Legends of Metru Nui

That refered to another toa of water which snuck out to get help for metru nui at the start of the toa/dh war. By that time tuyet was in the pit.

K, well ive got questions about the nuva:

1. Are the Toa Nuva ganna come out as sets next year?

2. If so will they play a VERY important role in the Bionicle Storyline?

3.When are they going to release images of the Swamp of Secrets?

4. Is there ganna be another Bionicle movie, something like Bionicle 4: Search for the Mask of Life?

5.Do you know how the Nuva 2008 sets will look like?

6.Are the toa Hagah ganna have an important role in furure storyline?

7.Do you think that the Toa Hagah will become sets again?

8.What are the hagah doing now?

9.How many books will be released next year?

10.Why were there only three names on the 08 set list of the nuva, my theory is that the other three toa go to the world that feeds the world while kopaka,lewa,and the brown one(forget name) go to get the staff of arthaka and acidently set it off and transforms them to Super Nuva: What you think?:

11.Will Takanuva be a vital role in the storyline again?

THNXS:

1) I cannot discuss future set plans
2) I cannot discuss future storyline
3) No idea
4) There are plans for another movie, but it won't be about the current storyline because the earliest it could possibly come out will be after this story is over.
5) See answer to #1
6) The Toa Hagah don't exist at the moment, they are Rahaga
7) No.
8) The Rahaga are traveling the universe looking for other victims of the Visorak to help
9) Next year is BIONICLE Legends 9-11. Technically, 8 is out next year too, but it will most likely be in stores in December of this year
10) Since all info on 2008 that has gotten out came as the result of someone hacking a retail website, I am not allowed to comment on any of it. I can tell you the Staff of Artakha storyline gets resolved this year, not next.
11) Takanuva will return to the storyline next year.

I think that everyone should ;look at number 4: theres ganna be another bionicle movie:

hi Greg,

1. Why did kongu grab two cordak blasters instead of one an keep hi toa tool.

2a.what is kongus speacal eye piece for.

2b.does it have a seical functian.

3.do the marhi use the mask on them selves so they can get to the speacal awaking place or do they die when they dstroy the cord.


1) If you were going to go into battle with an army of sea creatures which would you rather have? A weapon you can use over distance or one you have to be right in the middle of the enemy army to be able to use?

2) I don't have the set so don't know what you're referring to

3) I can't discuss future storyline


hi greg i have some more questins

1. every one is saying in gali nuvas blog the toa team we thoaght long gone is the hagah is this correct.

2. why did the lego company during 2005 not make set for the rest of the hagah?

3. do the rahgah turn back into the toa hagah some time this year because roodaka turns them back.( i will not post this queastion in the greg disscusion.)


1) Follow the story and find out
2) Sets only get made for characters who are going to be in main story. Only two of the Hagah ever appear in the story as Toa, Norik and Iruini. The others would never have shown up in the comic or books as Toa, so there would be no way to promote the sets.
3) See answer to #1


He made it sound like the tearies on the hagah are correct
#9487
"Follow the story and find out" should not be interpreted as "yes," because he might be attempting to mislead us.

And ARTHAKA, please don't post leaked information, you should remove it.
#9488
Perhaps ARTAHKA's Spoiler questions should be deleted.I will report just to be sure.
#9489
The thing about the 2008 sets in ARTAHKA's post was confirmed to be fake.
#9490
When was the 2008 list confirmed fake if nobody is allowed to even discuss it one way or the other? Actually, something Greg recently said kind of hinted at somethings on the list; could be coincidence though.

A lot of time ago, but not here. (Since it was not needed, after all we didn't have that list)

And stop the 2008 Set List discussion, thanks.

Here are some question that have been nagging at me for a few days.

1. How long had Lhikan and Nidikhi known each other before they were called to Metru Nui to fight the Kanohi Dragon?

2. Was Lhikan's Great Hau carved like a Noble Hau, or was that the way Great Haus were crafted where he came from?

3. Will we see what Toa Tuyet's mask looked like any time soon?

4. Was Nidikhi's armor like Lhikan's (you know, Toa Metru-like)?

5. Are the Great Being member of a species, or were there only three of them?

6. Since Makuta (as a species) don't need to breathe, does that mean they could survive in a vacuum (as in the vacuum of space)?

7. What did the Le-Matoran do with the Gukko Birds they taimed on Mata Nui when they moved back to Metru Nui?

8. Same question for the Onu-Matoran's Ussal Crabs.

Thank you.


1) There's no evidence they knew each other at all prior to that, I don't think.
2) The latter.
3) I don't see how, she's not appearing in the comics so I don't know how you are going to see what it looks like.
4) Probably
5) I can't discuss this
6) I tend to think not -- he would probably freeze in the vacuum of space. It's cold there.
7) They probably moved down there with them, and were used as a mean of transport until the chutes got fixed. They would have come down on their own, rather than in the Matoran boats.
8) Same answer. Ussal crabs were used for transport back when the Matoran lived in Metru Nui before, they are probably being used for that again.

#9493
1) Will Toa Krakua make a "real life " appearance or will it just be a "message" carried by his Kanohi Suletu like in BA10?
1) Real life

2) The Krana/Kraata hybrids from BA10, do they have any connection to the abnormal Kraata-like creatures found dead in the waters where Destral was last seen?
2) Nope

3) Is the info on the origin of the Bohrok something really new or was it stuff that should have been in "Invasion"?
3) New

4) Speaking of "Invasion"; I know you said you may really not be able to finish it and publish it here on BZP. Are you then planning to release just the outlines of the story, like in your news-update or something similar?
4) Haven't thought about it

5) Something about the podcasts: Makuta obviously wants the Nui stone for some reason. Is this reason important for his grand scheme? I guess not (at leat he did not plan it) since he did not know about the shards of the Nui stone up until some days ago? So having the Nui stone just is a nice "side-effect" for Makuta but it's not essential for his master plan?
5) It does tie into something he has going, but it was not part of the original plan

6) Since Makuta's role right now is quite ambiguous (being a "friend" to the Mahri and telling Matoro to sink Voya Nui to be bale to save Mata Nui) would you say Makuta having the Nui stone will "help" the Toa - as far as this year is concerned?
6) Nope

7) BTW have you already come up with a name for the Makuta of Metru Nui (no need to tell his name now)?
7) Yes, that book is already written and done

8) Something I have been wondering for some time: Makuta read the stars over Metru Nui and learned that Nuhrii and co. were destined to be Toa (which of course was faked by the OoMN). Then he planted the names of Vakama and co. in Lhikan's mind to make them the "wrong" Toa Metru (because he thought those Matoran would not make a good and worthy Toa team). However Matoran can only become Toa if they are destined to. Should Makuta have not have known about this or at least have realized his plan was going wrong when he saw the new "real" Toa Metru? I mean he must have known that only destined Matoran can become Toa, so obviously he must have realized the stars were wrong.
8) Think of it this way -- if Lhikan gives the Toa stones to six of the wrong people, then the right people don't have them. So whether or not the wrong people can become Toa or not, the right ones won't have the Toa stones to do it with.

9) Ok last week we had a topic about the significance about Jaller's Hau, and I can remember you saying that this Hau was a noble Kanohi. But did you mean it had the power of a noble Kanohi, or that it was in the shape of a noble Hau? I believe the first option since we have had 2 Jaller (Matoran)sets over the years and he always wore a mask in the shape of a Great Hau.
9) Power of

10) Concerning the Makuta vs. Karzahni battle: Does Makuta intend to kill Karzahni during this battle or does he think this is not necessary for him?
10) Follow the story and find out

[11) Ok I messed up something in my last PM about the Toa power levels. Is this list correct then?
Toa Mata 9
Toa Nuva 10
Toa Metru 9
Toa Hordika 7
Toa Inika 9
Toa Mahri 9
11) Should be

12) Since you said Takanuva wil get re-introduced into the storyline in 2008. Will he learn more about his real destiny then?
12) Can't answer it

13) You'll have the meeting about the mask-pack-issue this week. Are able to tell us about the outcome of that meeting or is that confidential stuff?
13) I doubt there will be anything to pass on to you. The info will be given to the Brand team, they then have to go back and study it along with all the other info they are getting, and then they will decide what is important enough to pass on to Denmark and what isn't. I doubt I will know what they are planning to do based on today.

#9494
Hi Greg. I read your blog regularly and i just can't wait to buy BL10 when it comes out: i haven't PMed you in a while but i have a few questions

1. Out of all the Toa teams you've wrote about which did you like writing about the most.

2. You said Toa Krakua will come back in BL10( ), will he be real this time?

3. Will the Makuta vs. Karzhani fight be on biocast or seriel?

4. I heard that the Vahi might have a cameo. Is this true?

5. If Maxilos's body was to be damaged, (say, have an arm ripped off) would this affect Makuta?

6. You said Hydraxon can't use masks. Is it just that he doesn't want to use them or does he just not have the mental disciplin?

7. Toy-wise, the krana can't fit on the metru and inika heads. is this true storyline-wise?

8. Makuta taught Sidorak to fire shadow blasts. Could he teach that to anyone willing to learn?

9. Just a few days ago i relized i never actually knew what Takanuva's destiny is. Has it been revealed yet?
9a. If not could you give me a hint?

10. Could i maybe have a BL8 qoute please?

Thanks in advance and keep up your awsome blog. atlas


1) Metru
2) Yes
3) Serial
4) No
5) I don't see how. Robots have no nerve endings, so they aren't capable of feeling pain. So I can't see how it would do more than inconvenience Makuta. (And remember, for that matter, the first Toa showed up in 2001 missing arms and legs and didn't seem to be in any pain from it.)
6) Doesn't want to
7) No
8) Depends on if you have access to that energy or not
9) No, it hasn't been revealed yet, and no, I am not giving hints on this
10) Sorry, I don't have time to go quote searching


These were answered very fast. but nothing really special.

Some questions and answer. Especialley nr. 10 is interessting :D
1: Is roodaka still vicory of the Visorak Horde?
2: Will the Nuva regocnize her when they meet her?
3: When will the Karzahni/Makuta battle take place?
4: In BA10 It says that Makuta was the mentor of Sidorak, did he
teach him how to use that shadow bolt in B3?

5: Will Karzahni also appear outside of this year?
6: What will Hydraxon do to Nocturn, lock him up again?
7: Will the BoM attack Metru Nui because it is now in badly shape
and only guarded by one (novice) Toa?
8: Will the Toa Nuva also return to Metru Nui after the SoA saga?
9: Are the old though ago heroes the Rahaga and Keetongu?
10: What is Vezon doing right now?? Is he allied with the Piraka or will
he visit the Matoran or challange Axonn or something like that?


1) No, because the Visorak would not willingly follow her at this point.
2) By description they would, yes.
3) Later on in the year
4) Most likely, yes
5) No plans for that at the moment, depends on how his serial ends
6) That would be the plan
7) No. If the BOM's plan works, they don't need to seize control of Metru Nui by force.
8) I can't discuss this
9) I am not going to give hints on this
10) Originally, Vezon was going to wind up in the hands of the zyglak, but because one book got taken off the schedule this year, I was not able to write that story


Some interessting answers, especialley that of Makuta as mentor and the one about Vezon :D
Too bad the book wasn't released. It sound really interessting.


About question 9: I asked him that but didn't mention it :wacko:

About question 9: I asked him that but didn't mention it :wacko:


Hmm, wonder why you didn't mention it. Maybe you just forget? But anyway, he isn't going to commit
it if it are the Rahaga that will be returning. Maybe some other group of Toa but I don't know which
one that could be. And new info about the orgin of the Bohrok, at least, I am waiting for such info about
the Bahrag and the Bohrok since 2002 :D

But very cool that Krakua will be returning in the storyline. Ever since I read about him in BA 10 I wondered
when he would return. Very cool. anyway, does anyone know when the Bionicle Legends book 8 & 9 are going to be released?

Hello, Mr. Farshety. I have some questions.

1. I heard something about a "Swamp of Secrets." Can you tell me anything about this?

2. Are the Winter 2008 sets finalized? (I'm not asking for info on them)

3. Is Downfall your favorite Legends book, or is it a different one?

4. What was the last Legends book you finished?

Thank you for your time.



1) Title for Book 10 next year
2) Yes
3) Of the Legends series, yes, that and Legacy of Evil
4) Bionicle Legends #9, Shadows in the Sky


Here's what I just got.

Nah maybe it's because it was a Known answer? And VERY cool that Krakua's actually appearing in the present:
Here the PM is if anyone's wondering...

Hello Mr. Farshtey. You may remember me from the Collectibles petition topic. Anyway I just read the latest entry of your blog And the thing about the 6 heroes long thought gone is interesting. My question is(If you can answer it),
Are the Great Heroes the Toa Hagah or another team?
Thank you, NBSC.


Sorry, I want the revelation to be a surprise, so I am not giving away who they are or are not.

So as you can see I basically got the answer I expected. And 8'll be released in at least a few months and I think 9's due for December if I'm not mistaken... And interesting about the Winter Sets being finalized already... Though should I really be surprised?
EDIT:(WIll add to sig later...) I am taking GregF questions(Aka basically forward them to Greg) Because I basically have none of my own :P
#9502
Well, you recently said in your blog that Toa Krakua would appear in real form this time. Most had speculated that he would be some new Toa that was not in existence yet because of the vision he sent to Vakama stating that if he stopped the six heroes, Krakua would not exist. Well, apparently, he is already a Toa at the present time. So was he referring to the fact that he would not exist because if Vakama stopped the Inika, that Mata Nui would die?

Same as with the fact that if the six heroes wavered even once they would perish?

Is it all dealing with / foreshadowing the death of Mata Nui in a sense?

Thank you for your time. :)


At the time he said that, I already knew what the 2006-2008 story was going to be. And Krakua's creation is precipitated by the events begun on Voya Nui, so had the Inika not gone there, he would never have come into existence as a Toa.


A little about Toa Krakua. Nothing major, though.
#9503
Some new stuff from Greg and some things about Ehlek pre-Pit.

Hello, I just have some quick questions for you.

1. I'm currently working on artwork that depicts how I think the Barraki looked pre-Pit and I have some questions about Ehlek, first off, he had the claws pre-Pit correct?
1a. Did he have the spines?
1b. Was he always so small or weak looking, did he wear armor, etc. which would make it so he didn't have that appearance of being so thin?
1c. Did he have electricity above water, or after his mutation?
1d. Would he have used any other weapons besides the claws before the Pit?

2. Did you do the stats for the 07 characters, or did someone else make them?

3. Was one done for Spinax?

4. Does Pridak only have Takea Sharks in his army?

Thank you.


1) Yes
1a) No
1b) He was always shaped pretty much like an eel, with more emphasis on agility and swift movement than strength
1c) He was always a water-dweller, but the electric power came after his mutation
1d) It's possible, yes
2) I did them
3) I believe so
4) Yes, and mutated Takea sharks

09MurphyM, you need to PM Greg, there's a link in the first page. Altough I can answer those.

1) Tahu's Kanohi Nuva, ecept the Hau, were destroyed.
2) The Matoran consider them Rahi.
#9506
Sorry to PM you twice in two days, but I forgot to ask a few questions last time.

1. I've heard Krakua will appear nin BIONICLE Legends #9: Swamp of Secrets. Will he have a large role, or is he only a minor character?

2. Can the Rahaga still use Kanohi masks? I doubt they could use Great Masks, but could the use Noble Masks?

3. Since the OoMN base known as Daxia was where the Toa Mata "first walked", does that mean they knew of the OoMN's existance (you know, before loosing their memories)?

4. Does the rest of the BoM know the Makuta of Metru Nui is still alive?

5. How was the Mask of Shadows able to blast Reidak without being worn by anybody?

6. Could any Great Kanohi wearing being (like a Toa) use the MoS, or can only a Makuta access its power?

Thanks GregF.


1) Bionicle Legends #10, actually, and I can't discuss how big his role will be
2) No, for the same reason Hordika couldn't.
3) Memories got wiped
4) Yes, they do now
5) Think of it like a car alarm. It basically works like a ward does in a fantasy story -- it's an effect that is focused into an object, and if that object is handled in a certain way, the effect is triggered.
6) It is a Great mask, so any being who can use a great mask can wear it and use it. But since shadow is an evil element, use of the mask's power to spread darkness and fear risks corruption.

#9507
I found question 4 interesting:

Hi, Mr. Farshtey. I want to ask some questions:

1) Is Makuta's armor made of protosteel (from here)?

2) The Avohkii was made in Arthaka but was it made by Arthaka?

3) I can't find information about this: What has happened with the Makoki stone after his use in Mangaia's entrance?

4) If there are other sun-holes in other lands like Metru Nui, it means that are there other emerged lands on the planet's surface above the domes?

Thank you for your time.


1) Yes
2) Hasn't been revealed
3) You can't find info because it was never mentioned again after that
4) Actually, no. Metru Nui is the only place we know of whose dome is above water.


3) If so, we will learn more about its current state?

4) In that case the sun-holes are in bottom of the surface sea, right?

Thanks again.


3) Only if I deem it important to storyline that you do.
4) No, the other domes do not have sun holes at all.

Just some recent stuff from Greg

Hello Greg, today I have a some more questions:

1) Recently someone asked about the Sun-Holes in metru Nui, and then you responsed that other islands don't have holes. How they can have light?

2) In another forum you said that Vakama was appearing in November comic. Is that because he feels the Death of Mata Nui?
2a) By the way, this comic will have the first part of the 2007 ending right?

3) I remeber reading somewhere that the true task of the Bohrok was not clean an island. Can you confirm this?

4) How many chapters of the Nuva Blog have you written completely?

5) Witth the 9 chapters of Into the Darkness, this means that we'll have chapters more often right?

6) You always say that the Toa Nuva go to Artakha in 2007, and not 2008. Does that mean that If they appear somewhere in 2008, they have done all their tasks there?
6a) Just wondering, are you going to put the last chapter of the Nuva Blog right before where Artkha calls tha Toa Nuva?

Thanks before hand,
Night Terror


1) Well, even if they had sun holes, the domes are underwater so there would be no sunshine coming in. Obviously, there has to be another source, most likely lightstones or some variant of that.

2) September is the first part of '07 ending, November is the second part. As for why Vakama appears, read it and find out.

3) No, that's not the case.

4) There are going to be a total of 10 chapters, and I have written I think four so far.

5) I'd assume so

6) Yes, they are gone from Artakha by the end of Book 8
6a) Don't know yet

hello mr. Farshtey. i have soem questions for you.

1a) i am curious to know if there are other forms of entertainment in the BIONICLE universe besides sport such as comics or movies like the Human world does. i mean there are many legends and stories in the bionicle world that can make exellant TV shows and comics and novels. i meani know that metru nui has protodermic telescreens that broadcast turaga Duma's messages but can they use the same screens to broadcast shows like the Adevtures of Toa Lhiikan and such? i eman i saw in the beginning of Bioncie the game that the matoran were holding a play celebrating the Toa mata's victories and such.

1b) if there are such things as matoran comic and movies and such what kind of titles exist in the bionicle world? cuz i've always'd imagined matoran Matau and matoran Nuparu having a Mythbusters like show on Metru Nui or some present day matoran who heard of the Piraka's misdeeds and came up with an indie comic about one ala Johnny the Homicidal maniac (Vezon the Homicidal Maniac?).

2) Bionicle beings are biomechnaical. is it possible to create a composite being out of spare biomechnaical parts liek form a dying foe or something. i'm not tlka8ng about beings like dark hunter Prototype who was two toa that got fused together by the spear of fusion but like using the same technology that the dark hunters used to rebuild the fallen air toa Spinner and that the Matoran of mata Nui used to make themselves stronger?

thankyou in advance


1) I see the Matorans' entertainment as being more oral tradition -- sitting around telling stories -- rather than sitting around watching TV or going to the movies. If we bring their culture too close to our culture, people seem to get bored with it.

2) It is possible, yes, although dismembering a foe who is still alive would be considered in really bad taste.

Heres a pm.

Hi Greg I just have one question:
When Nidhiki a Toa, we know he wore a mask of Stealth in the same shape as Toa Nuparu. Now, was Nidhiki mask the same silver color and did he have the blue visor?

Thanks. Toa Kratana

No, it would have been green

Hi Greg. I have some questions I was hoping you could answer.

1. Is the new bionicle movie going to be called bionicle 4, or is that going to change due to the fact that Miramax isn't making it.
2. What are the titles for the 2008 bionicle books?
3. Does the Order of Mata Nui leader stay on Daxia?
4. In the prologue of bionicle legends 6, Botar ties up the barraki with rings of energy. Is this a power of his?
5. In 2002, When the Toa fell into the tubes full of energized protodermis, were those tubes what the bahrag used to dip what makes krana into energized protodermis?
6. Is it possible for Turaga to turn back into Toa?



Thanks.


1) If you check out Legends of Metru Nui and Web of Shadows, they are not called BIONICLE 2 and BIONICLE 3 - just BIONICLE. So no reason to call the new one 4.
2) Shadows in the Sky, Swamp of Secrets, and the third one has not been named yet.
3) Normally, yes
4) Yes
5) Nope
6) Nope



Number 6 was a theory that the long forgotten heroes were the toa metru.

That's cool, sicne I am rying to make an illustration of Toa Nidhiki and I thought the Kanohi was balck, since he had a black headpiece as a Dark Huter:
Or did Greg mean his visor was green?

He meant the mask itself. I'm not sure that a normal one would even have a visor.

Maybe yes. Remember that onewa's and Vakama's masks used to have one (At least in the comics.)
#9518
Well it's just a small graphic and I thought I'd put it on Toa Lhikan's bidy (since it's a good pose). I just started recoloring on the left arm. However I am not sure what colour to give the golden parts (since the red ones will be Metru-green).I am aware Nidhiki had a scythe and not the Fire Greatswords I am still working on that, but here you can see my progress so far:




Jope you like it so far (I know it's off topic). I will continue working on it within the next days:
#9519
yeah...toa of kenn, you better put this in another topic.

Hey Greg, one question: If Toa was never matoran, can they become a turaga?
