And technically, all six Toa Nuva had their Masks removed by the Piraka, and it never said that they retrieved each mask back.


:m_p: :i: :r: :a: :k: :a: :l: :m_o: :r: :m_d: :6: :9: :3:

They each had the one mask they were currently wearing removed. The rest of their masks were safe on their Suvas/whatever they have on Metru-Nui. And from what I recall, the Matoran Resistance Leaders gave the Nuva their masks back when they rescued said Nuva. So, outside of Tahu, the rest still have their masks.

#10282
Thanks for the feedback. Then what about Kopaka and Onua? Ko_Koro and Onu-Koro were destroyed too, so what of their maks?


:m_p: :i: :r: :a: :k: :a: :l: :m_o: :r: :m_d: :6: :9: :3:
#10283
I don't recall Ko-Koro being destroyed, and I don't think a cave-in can destroy the masks, they're probably small enough to survive.

Okay, it was damaged, but not destroyed.
#10284
I don't think that Greg was confirming that the first Toa and the Nuva are the only Toa ever to have never been Matoran, I think he means of the ones we know.
#10285
I recently asked Greg these questions to here are the answers (i have edited them so the answers are the next line down from the question so you don't have to scroll up and down)

Hello Mr.farshtey

I have a few questions that i would like to ask:

1. When people PM you how do you prefer to be adressed? e.g greg, Mr farshtey etc.
1) Makes no difference to me.

2. How many Toa were in Lesovikk's team?
2) I would have to double-check if I wrote that somewhere

3. Has a map ever been released showing the location of all the currently know domes and places?
3a. If no, will there be?
3-3a) No, and probably not

4. If a Toa loses a peice of armour in battle can it be replaced?
4a. If yes, can it be replaced with a different coloured peice of armour?
4) Yes
4a) Yes


5. I know that Matoran are mechanicl but where dose the energy coem from to move the mechanisms? e.g You can have a gear chain but you need to turn one gear to get the chain moving.
5) Not allowed to discuss this

A question not entirely about Bionicle;
6. Will Lego BrickMaster ever be released in the UK. I cheak the website but it always says available in the US only.
6) At this point, BrickMaster is still trying to prove it can be profitable in the US, so until that happens, we can't really try it in other countries. It is also much more expensive to ship the free sets in Europe than it is here, which drives the cost of the subscription way up.


Thank-you in advanced for taking the time to answer my questions,
Toa Dodotom

P.S. I'm new here so can someone please tell me how to get the quote box? -> Thanks to Adventurer for the help :D

Thats probably the best idea. You migt want to add at the end "Sorry if you already got this PM, i sent it to you a couple of days ago but i didn't get a reply so i thought it might not have reached you" or something like that.

Hello, Greg. :)

1)Is the SoA called like that becuase it repairs things like Artakha himself would?
2)So, Antroz, Chirox and Vamprah have the 42 Kraata powers and their own mask power. Right? Do they also have regular darkness powers?
2b)What about Icarax?
3)Do you know if Icarax will be 15$ like Nocturn?

Thanks in advance:

Shakar


1) It's called that because it was something he made and took pride in.
2) Yes, all Makuta have access to shadow energy
2b) Yes
3) No, I don't
Just a few questions. Enjoy.

Shakar

#10294
Ocasionally the server "eats" PMs, and once Greg accidentally deleted one of mine.
#10295
I've sent my PM again and this time it only took a few hours so here it is:

Hi Greg

1- Does the bionicle planet have a moon or something?

2- Are the weapons of the 2008 nuva light charged or something like that?

3- Is Takanuva the only possible toa of light or can there be more?

4- Is the rahi nui still on Mata nui?
4b- If yes, will he fight the bohrok?
4c- Does krahka takes this route to metru nui? voya nui-mata nui- metru nui
4d- If yes, will she fight the bohrok?

5- Can the nui stone only be used by toa, because of what makuta said?

6- Is the toa of a new element that will appear in DoD:
a- a prisoner of the pit?
b- just a appearing toa?
c- a toa appearing in a flashback of Lesovikk?
d- I have to wait till the new chapter?

7- How will Karzahni react if he saw what happened to his realm?
7b- Is this his last jear (his realm is destroyed, Lesovikkk destoyed vowed to destroy him)?

8- Wil MoMN apppear in BL11?

9- Can makuta (species) breathe underwater?

10- Where there toa on the mainland besides Jovan and his team?

11- Where Dume and Jovan team members?

12- Is the TSO the most powerfull or the most experienced of the Dark Hunters?

13- Where there many av-matoran in Karzahni?
13b- Are they now all at metru nui?

14- Where Idris, Sarda, Dekar and Defilak all from the same island because of there simulair body?
14b- Did Dekar and Defilak knew Lesovikk?

That's all for know


1) I believe there might have been a moon shown in MNOG.
2) I can't discuss 2008 sets or story
3) No, he's not the only one possible, but he's the only one that exists.
4) Yes
4b) No
4c) Yes
4d) No -- such a battle would gain her nothing, and she could care less what happens to the island of Mata Nui, that's not her home. Remember, the Bohrok only fight you if you get in their way. If you don't, they leave you alone.
5) The power it is absorbing can only be used by a Toa, yes.
6) Wait for the chapter
7) Time will tell
8) I can't discuss future storyline
9) Yes, because they are just energy, they don't need to breathe
10) Possibly in some areas, but not in all, since the Voya Nui Matoran had never seen a Toa
11) No
12) Not the most powerful, definitely, but possibly most experienced.
13) There are no Av-Matoran in Metru Nui, Takua was the only one.
14) Yes
14b) Yes


But I think he misunderstood 13
:happydance: :happydance: :happydance:
#10296
I dodn't know that Dekar and Defilak were from Lesovikk's homeland too... Well done:

About question 13: Then what happened to the Av-Matoran of Karzahni?
#10297

Hello Mr. Farshtey

Firstly I would liek to thank you for getting back to me so quickly the last time i PMed you. I have a few more questions i would like to ask:

1. Do all toa have suva?
1a. If no, Can one be created for them?
1b. Can all toa who have suva teleport masks to and from them?

2. If two sea squids were fighting and the both tried to drain life energy from each other what would happen? Would the Life energy just get constantly tranfered in a loop, would some life energy be lost in the transaction or would the stonger one drain faster and win?

3. Are there plans to release any more bionicle MP3 songs?

4. When the piraka took control of a matoran using antidermis, did the piraka control them or makuta?

5. Would energised protodermis have the power to bring an in animate object to life (such as a entriley mechanical being) or is the mask of life the only thing that can do that?

6. How is energised protodermis created?

7. What was in the zamor shere Axonn gave to the inika to frezze vezon in time with?

Thanks in advance
Toa dodotom



1) No
1a) Yes
1b) Yes, if they are within range
2) Most likely, you would havea feedback loop formed and the fight would go on endlessly
3) No idea
4) The Piraka did.
5) Yes, EP can do that. We saw it bring stone to life once.
6) Hasn't been revealed
7) It basically had some of Axonn's power in it and was able to create a stasis field

#10298
Does that mean that Axxon can create a stasis field?
#10299
Does that mean that Axxon can create a stasis field?


You need to PM greg, he dosn't read this topic.
#10300
I would like to know where Vezon got his Chain and Cape. did he find them in

a-makutas lair
b-OoMN members canister
c-stairway
d-Chamber of Life

Thank you.

~:OMG:~


Most likely at some point on his way to finding the canister.

I know I wasn't trying to PM him. I was just wondering.

Night Terror
I dodn't know that Dekar and Defilak were from Lesovikk's homeland too... Well done:

About question 13: Then what happened to the Av-Matoran of Karzahni?

They have to be from the same island, they're mutated to their pre-rebuilt forms when Mahri Nui sank, and they look similar.
And because of this, Lesovikk probably looked like a Mahritoran whenhe was a Matoran.
#10303
1. Was Carapar always how "he can't even snap his fingers without help," as in he can't do anything on his own?
1) He was never the brightest tool in the shed, but also not always as slow as he is now.

2. Why did the Barraki traitor betray the League of Six Kingdoms in the first place?
2) Because he didn't think their plot was going to succeed, and he wanted to be sure that if it didn't, he would be protected.

3. Would the traitor know that Mantax is searching for the Contract if he sees him at it?
3) Most likely

4. If the traitor knew Mantax knows he's the traitor, would the traitor try to kill him?
4) Oh, sure

5. Will we find out who the traitor is in the November comic?
5) No, in Book 8.

6. On a few lighter notes: Are we going to have a little "side-mystery" like this one next year? This one is really fun.
6) It is, yes, depends on what I am able to do in the web serials most likely

7. Do you read mystery novels?
7) Yes, I used to read a lot, not as much now. I mainly read Jeffery Deaver now, but have also read a lot of Conan Doyle, Ellery Queen, Raymond Chandler, etc.

#10304
Hi, a few questions about the Makuta of Metru Nui :)
1) He is not a set next year, is this something to do with the storyline?

2) Is he a combiner next year?

3) Will he be making an appearance in 08

4) Will he be making an appearance after 08?

5) Does he die?

6) Does he die in 07?

7) Is he involved with the tragic ending of 07?

8) Will the Toa Nuva be appearing again as Toa (in new forms) after 08?

9) What is the main part of your job?

Thanks :pirate:


1) Can't answer it
2) At this point, we haven't planned what will be combiners next year, since they are only done through LEGO Magazine now, as needed.
3-8) I cannot discuss future storyline
9) Writing and editing LEGO Magazine and LEGO BrickMaster Magazine

#10305
Wanna know what BoM members are good at swordfights?

1. Could the BoM 'rebuild' something to serve them? Not necessarily change their shape but sort of change them into serving them?
2. Is a Makuta's strength its armor or its antidermis?
3. Is MoMN any good at hand to hand or 'sword fighting'?
4. Are any BoM members?
5. How many Makuta were assigned to the mainland before the events of Mahri Nui?

Thanks

1) Not that I am aware of.
2) Depends on what kind of strength you are talking about. If you are talking physical power, that is dictated by the body you're in.
3) Not terrible, but I don't see him as being enormously experienced at it.
4) Icarax is, Vamprah is, probably Antroz is, of the ones you know about
5) There would most likely have been one assigned to that region


EHLEK


#10306
Well, they have dodge, which makes them literally impossible to physically hit. But that's still very interesting.
#10307
That's only if they keep it activated, though, (same goes to invulnerability), and that gets pretty draining over time - so it should be possible to sneak attack a Makuta.
#10308
Isn't it a passive ability? The description implies that it is.
#10309

1)Since more info on the Phantoka have already been released, would you mind telling me if the mutant Kraata you introduced to us earlier on has anything to do with the Phantoka Makuta?
1a) Are they, by any chance, in those round orange things around their chests?

2) Is there a storyline reason for the Makuta turning into bats?

3) Is the Toa Ignika a toa of life?

4) Did Artahka have anything to do with the Toa Nuva's new forms?

5) Are the three Makuta canister sets, besides the three summer villians, the only Makutas appearing in the storyline, the only ones in the core? (With Icarax, of course.)

6) In the area that the Toa Nuva will be next year, will their powers be enhanced in any way?
6a) How about the Makutas'?

7) Will any of the Toa Inika/Mahri be appearing next year in any form/way?

Thanks so much, Greg
pirakahakann


1) Don't want to discuss this yet
2) Makuta are shapeshifters, they can look how they want. If you were a Makuta and in an air environment, why wouldn't you turn into a flying creature that would intimidate your opponents
3) See answer to #1
4) You'll find that out in Bionicle Legends #8
5) No.
6) No.
7) I can't discuss future storyline


Thanks, GregF.

1) Has it been confirmed that the Nuva's new armour was given to them by Artakha?
2) Will we see Jaller use his Arthron at all?
3) Is Takanuva still wearing his Avohkii next year?
4) Is the quote from your sig, the one that stated that a being "found a way to shapeshift another person and lock them in that form" from someone we know?
5) Will Roodaka be appearing next year?

Thanks again
pirakahakann


1) No
2) I believe that he has used it or will use it in the books.
3) Yes
4) No
5) Not unless she shows up in a web serial, and those have not been planned out yet


Thanks Greg.

1) Did the Toa Nuva go wherever the 2008 location is to get the Staff of Artakha?
2) Which is your favourite, storyline-wise, Phantoka Makuta?
3) Do the split groups of toa Nuva have their own leaders?
4) Why were the shape of the Nuva's Kanohi changed?
4a) Were the Kanohi powers/the masks themselves enhanced in any way?
5) Will Icarax have a major storyline appearance, as a main character, or a minor character like Nocturn?
6) How will the Nuva stand a chance with an equal number, or more, of Makuta?
7) Are the Nuva's armour any stronger than their old ones?
8) Who would you regard as a better fighter, Icarax or the Makuta of Metru Nui?
9) Will the MoMN be appearing next year?
10) Does the Toa Ignika speak?
11) Will Brutaka have a battle with the MoMN in the web serial?
12) Did Brutaka fire that blast of energy from his hand? "Wisps of energy" were circling his hand, right?
13) Will we see Brutaka using more unknown abilities in the Web serial?

Thanks

pirakahakann



1) No. SOA storyline is resolved in 2007, has nothing to do with 2008.
2) In storyline? Probably the winter one you have not seen yet.
3) Too early to discuss this.
4) Well, shape of their armor changed, so why just go out with old mask pieces that Nuva fans already have again?
4a) No.
5) He plays a larger role in the books than Nocturn did, too early to know on the comics.
6) Follow the story and find out
7) They have different capabilities
8) In hand to hand? Icarax.
9) I can't discuss 2008 storyline
10) See answer to #9
11) Yes
12) Yes
13) Probably not, no.

#10310
2) In storyline? Probably the winter one you have not seen yet.


Wait; did Greg just say that there's another Makuta coming out in the next wave that we still don't know about? Is this new info? Am I reading this totally wrong cuz it's 1:30am?? :blink:

#10312
Hi Greg

I've got some Questions

1- Where there more av-matoran than the builder of the toa canisters in karzahni?
1b- Is the builder of the toa canisters and any other av-matoran (if there are more in karzahni) now at metru nui?

2- Is the pit mutagen around the whole ocean or only around the pit/mahri nui?
2b- If its the whole ocean does that also mean the island of mata nui?

3- Can you describe something about the creature Kongu summened?

4- Does the faxon only allows copying with rahi that shares the same environment with the user?

5- Can a great spirit control the elements shadow and light?
5b- Can a great spirit wear a mask?

6- Can a makuta create shields of shadow?

7- Do toa sleep and have dreams I know matoran do?
7b- Do toa absorb food I know matoran do?

8- Who's the new caretaker of Pewku?

9- Are the hannah crab and the gadunka species both affected by the pit mutagen? Are these their mutated forms?

10- Do the faces/maskes of the toa and matoran work the exact same in storyline aswell as in the movies?

11- How many fingers do toa have in the storyline? 5 Or some other number?

Thanks if you could answer them


1) It's possible, but probably unlikely
1a) Not sure they have actually reached Metru Nui yet, but that is where they are headed.
2) Only in the Pit area
3) Not really any more than I did in the book
4) Yes
5) I can't answer these
6) Yes, I think that's reasonable
7) Yes
7b) Yes
8) Most likely Orkahm is looking after Pewku
9) Gadunka is not, no, because Gadunka was affected by the power of the Ignika and so is protected like the Toa Mahri are. With the Hahnah, it's possible
10) Basically, although in the books/comics we do not show masks glowing when they are in use, that was something done for the movies only
11) As many as they have in the movies.

As much as I don't want to admonish you since your my buddy, that is spam and is not allowed here.

But it's a winter set we haven't seen yet; meaning it's either Icarax or that other unknown set. ;) We've seen all other winter sets.
