Well, Greg didn't explicitly state her to be dark blue-green, only that that's how he sees her. I imagine her to be purple, as that's a nice shadowy color; but I guess we'll never know unless she's made as a set (or made official through a MOCing* contest) or pictured in one of the Matoran Universe guidebooks.

*LOL, "mocking".
:P

i always pictured her similar to rodaka. but on fed of fear it never said why they chose vezon. will that be awnsered in destiny war or was it true he was mistaken for vezok or because he was created in the makuta lair or what or can i finall stop saying or. :P


They picked him because he had no prior experience with the Makuta. Therefore, they didn't know what he was capable of (which was nothing, but they didn't know that :P).


Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho .
:t: :m_o::c:



I thought the only reason Vezon keeps getting suicide missions is because nobody cares about his safety, and he's insane enough to do anything he's told to do. Plus, he's slightly more useful than the other piraka currently.


Well, that's why he was part of FoF. What you said is right about Destiny War, though. ;)


Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho .

I don't think we are aloud to discuss for a 'lil more, so please stop.
#5643
i think that took place between Kingdom and DM
so yeah, he would have his weapons

Here's some stuff about the Codrex.


Hi Greg, I have a few questions about the Codrex.

1. It was made by the Great beings correct?

2. Is it made of stone or metal?

3. Why exactly does the Codrex not protect living beings inside it, and just equipment inside from the storm?
3a. Axalara and Adaptive armor are both protosteel, so shouldn't the adaptive armor help the toa survive while in the Codrex because it's protosteel and it can Adapt?

4. If the Toa Nuva took refuge in the Codrex with Adaptive armor, would they survive the storm?

Thank you for your time, I hope you can answer these.


1) Correct
2) Metal
3) Because the shielding of it is insufficient to protect living things. The only living things ever intended to be inside of it were the Mata in their canisters
3a) No, because the armor is not strong enough to protect against the storm.
4) No

Hi Greg, thanks for the answer about the Codrex, I have 1 quick question.

1. Is the 4 armed OoMN member possibly one of Nocturn's species, since Nocturn has 4 arms?

2. Will the OoMN try recruit more of Botar's species?

3. When Nocturn Broke his Island in half, are there still parts of it left or did it completely sink/get destroyed.
3a. Is any of Nocturn's species still alive?(besides him)

Thank you for your time.

Also I just got this.....


1) No
2) Possible, but who knows if his species is interested in getting involved in a full-scale war? It may be that there are individual members, like Botar, who care about the rest of the universe, but that the rest of the species as a whole only cares about their own island.
3) Destroyed
3a) Possibly, yes
#5651
Hi Greg
2)when the nynrah preformed "rebuilding project" on phantom why were the nynrah frightened and ashamed of what they had done did he look like a monster?
2A)did he look like somthing someone would call a "hero"?
.
2) Because tampering with someone like that is just wrong
2a) He wasn't a Toa, if that's what you're asking


1)i meant did he look more like a monster or more heroish?

2)how skilled was phantom at making stuff?
2a)is he still as skilled at crafting stuff as he was as a matoran?

3)is it possible that phantom crafted his own tools he that use's now?

4)are the Nynrah still guilty about what they did to phantom?
4a)would they acept him if he ever whent back to Nynrah?

sorry for all the phantom questions he is my faviourite DH.

Non Phantom

1)do you know if the 2009 sets will be realesed around the same time as the 2008 ones were?

thank you for your time :D


1) I believe he exists as a model, Darkblade
2) Yes
3) I doubt it
4) Yes
4a) No
1) Our sets are released the same times every year -- January and August


comments
1) hmm is there ? i didnt see one on the wiki
2)should that be added to the wiki?
#5652
got some good questions here... hope you can answer them and some suggestions for you.

1) Will the next movie be released in theaters?
a. Will it be in 3-D?
b. Do you know who is supporting voice for the movie?
2.) How many hours long is a day on the BIONICLE Planet?
3.) How many days a year?
4.) Does/Did Miserix have an assigned region?
5.) Is Miserix still a member of the BoM?
6.) Will you be naming the Toa Hagah's Kanohi?
7.) Will the rest of the Toa Mangai be revealed?
8.) When a Makuta performs a Nova-Blast equal attack, does that have a name?
9.) Will you be revealing the other elements' prefix's?
10) What do you think of these?
a.) A suggestion for Shadow= Kra- (You've probably heard that one before.)
b.) A suggestion for Plant Life= Pho- as in, photosynthesis
c.) A suggestion for Magnetism=Su- as in, Sushruta, the first person to use a magnet for surgical purposes. (Learned that in history class.)
11.) I honestly don't know, who created the Exo-Toa?
12.) Does Teridax know that the Toa Nuva are in Karda Nui?
a. Does Miserix?
13.) Will we ever hear from or see the other dimension again?
14.) How did you feel when you decided that Matoro killed Teridax in the Kingdom?
a.) Would you feel the same if Teridax was killed in the real dimension?
15.) Any plans for a Bionicle cereal?

Hope you can answer these questions.


1-1b) No
2-3) Hasn't been revealed
4) Yes, Destral
5) Not technically, no, because everyone thinks he's dead
6) Depends on if there's a story reason to do so and if I have enough available names
7) Doubt it
8) No
9) No, no reason for me to do so in story
10) I'm not taking suggestions, thanks
11) Matoran under the direction of the BOM
12) Yes
12a) No
13) No idea.
14) Not sure what you mean by how I felt -- my feelings don't enter into it
15) No


14.)[Correction] What did you think of Teridax being killed by Matoro in the Kingdom
a.) What would you think if Teridax was killed in the real dimension?


Question still makes no sense. I wrote it -- it's not like the events came as a surprise to me.


Okay I think i have the questions down:
How did you feel to have finally killed Teridax in the story?


I didn't particularly feel anything. It wasn't the Teridax from the main universe, so it's not like his death was going to have any impact beyond that one short story

Just two questions and a Theory

Hey Greg, I Enjoyed the new dwellers in the dark- I have a question regarding the Hagah.

1) I once read that the Order doesn't hire ex-servants/members of the BoM, If the OoMN was not going to draft Dark Hunters or BoM servants/members, would they still Hire the Hagah?

and non-dwellers in the dark question

2) Ok- I was listening to Dark Mirror and I heard Pohatu say that Tuyet sent an army of Toa to recruit the Toa Mata and not one toa survived the trip. Did the Karda-Nui energy storms kill those Toa?

3) You once told me that you have received questions that relate to 09 that can't be reviled, and I looked back to all the questions I asked you which you said wasn't revealed (which 99% were revealed-sorry for those questions) and I came across one question- "How did the EP get leaked on Mata-Nui?". Does this have to do with 09? and if so, Does that mean there is another set of domes that are not the Matoran Universe?

1) The Hagah worked for the BOM back before the BOM was known to be evil, so the rule would not apply to them. They had no idea they were working for a villainous group.
2) Yes
3) No, it has nothing to do with 2009. But it's also not relevant to the story we're telling. It did -- that's all anyone needs to know -- the how is not important
#5655
Hello again Greg. Hope you're doing well.

Just some question.

1)Are you planning to name Botar's replacement and the four-armed giant?

2)Will Trinuma's mask power be revealed?
2a)Helryx?

3)Is Teridax 'place of death' is a place we know of or a place we haven't seen yet?

Those are my questions for now.


1, 2, 2a) If it becomes relevant to story, yes
3) No, you have not seen it in past story


Some things I was wondering.
#5656
Hey Greg, just a couple of questions;

1) Are there any female Skakdi?
2) Did Spiriah know Krika was gonna imprison Miserix instead of execute him?
3) Has Zaktan shrunk since his mutation?
3a) Can one Toa Hagah carry his tank, or does it require more than one?

Thanks for reading.


1) Yes
2) No
3) He's a sea snake now, so yes -- no arms, no legs
3a) No, one can carry it


The first 2 are interesting, but I think we already knew number 2.
#5657
So there are female skakdis. Maybe their element is water.
#5658
Hello, got a couple of questions.

1. BS01 stated that Turaga Onewa was involved in the Toa Nuva being able to shield their minds, is this true?
2. Who defeated the Kanohi Dragon the first time? A Toa team?
3. Since BL11's end will lead directly to 2009, will we see a glimpse of 2009 or maybe 2009 characters in it (like Vamprah in the end of Downfall)?


1) When?
2) Yes
3) No. 2009 does not take place in the Matoran universe, 2008 does, so the 2009 location will not appear in 2008 comics or books.


1. I'm sure it stated that in BS01.
2. Didn't know that.
3. Not much to say...
#5659
4 and 6 are interesting.

Hello Greg.

This is my first PM to you, so if I do anything wrong, please let me know.

1) Is Zaktan still made out of Protodites, or has he been reformed into a single being?

2) Recently, you told a member that the Karda Nui storm was electrical in nature. Could a Toa of Lightning with enough will power control it?

3) Several years ago, you told BZP that we would be traveling to the Av-Matoran homeland (Karda Nui). You stated that it had had a form of protection, but the protection is gone now. Was the protection the Toa Mata?

4) Does Gaaki have control over when her mask activates, or does it just happan?

5) Because Helryx has lived for so long, does she have more expierience with controlling water than other Toa of Water?

6) Nova Blasts have been used before Galis's, correct? Pridak knew what Jaller was planning as soon as he saw him.

7) This next question is about Toa Nui. If yuo do now want to answer it, just put DHT (Don't have time)
If a Toa Nui is as strong as Mata Nui, would a Toa Nui Nuva be stronger than Mata Nui? Also, can Toa form "Combos" of more than 6 Toa?

I just read DiD 2 and wanted to say that it was very good. I liked how Helryx said to deal with their guide.

Thank you for taking the time to answer these and have a good day/evening
ight.

Bill Toa of Pie.


1) Protodites
2) No
3) Karda Nui is not the Av-Matoran homeland. They colonized there briefly, but it's not where they are from
4) It's always on, like the Suletu
5) Not necessarily. How much experience you have with a power is not based on your age, it's how often you have used it and for what purpose.
6) Yes
7) Since there is no such thing as a Toa Nui, the point is moot.

I don't think so since Vezok had water powers and he's male.
#5661
My questions:

Hello, Mr. Farshtey. I have two questions for you today:

1) Several people say that the price increase for the canister sets is only for this year. One person even claimed that you said it was only for this year. So my question is, are the canister sets prices going to go back down to $10 next year, or will they stay $13?

2) Do you have any Mistika yet?

Thanks for taking time off your busy job to answer the questions of BIONICLE fans like myself :) .

-TNTOS-


Greg's answers:

1) No, there are no plans to reduce the prices that I know of. Toa sets were $9.99 back when oil was $65-$75 a barrel. Oil is now well over $100 a barrel, and I doubt very much it's going back down to $75 anytime soon.
2) No, I am in the process of moving, so trying not to add more stuff that I have to move.


So that disproves the rumor that the set prices are going down next year .

skakdi probably have random gender-element combos, like female and males of every element.

Once you have 10 posts you can PM Greg these questions, he doesn't answer them in topic, he rarely visits this topic. A link to PM him is on page 1.
#5668
I'm sorry I forgot to put this with my other PM. This is my other question:

When the Piraka were mutated, did their bodies become a part of their spine, dissolve, or did they lose control of their bodies and had to separate themselves from it? Awkward question I know, but it was something I was wondering ever since I read Downfall.


Dissolve

hey everyone . i sent greg some questions by clicks" send messge" on his profile. Will they still get through?
#5673
These are some questions that I sent to Greg last night and recieved just now. Someone definitly needs to update the BSo1 Wiki and the Bioniclepedia.

Hello, Mr. Farshtey, how are You today? How has the move to the new house been going? Well, these are some things that I've been wondering about.

1)

"Did you really think it would be this easy?" said Spiriah. "I deduced our goal days ago and passed a message to my Zyglak friends through channels on Stelt."

How did Spiriah "pass a message" if he was with the rest of team the whole time and they were only there for a few hours at most?
1b) Does this mean that there are Zyglak on Stelt?

2)
"The first time you woke up on Daxia," I said, the words tumbling out of my mouth in my haste. "You were told you were a Toa, and your response was, 'What's a Toa?' There were no Makuta there, so how could one know about that?"

"There's only one problem," said Pohatu. "You weren't there either."

"But I saw it," I insisted. "I saw your creation, your training, I saw the team fighting avohkah here, and I saw the storm ... that's why I'm here."


Does this mean that Takanuva/Takua (and possibly other Av-Matoran) was living on Daxia at the time?

2b) Were any other Av-Matoran present during the Mata's creation?
2c) Did Takua (and possibly other Matoran) somehow take part in the Toa Mata/Nuva's creation?

3) Is Botar's replacement a new recruit, or has he been a meber of The Order for some time now?

4) Why did Helryx reveal not only her name, but also the existance of The Order? Could'nt she have hired the Dark Hunters and sent the Hagah on their mission without disclosing such information?
4b) Does this mean that the Dark Hunters are aware of The Order now?
4c) If yes to 4b, does TSO plan to do anything differently now that he knows of The Order?

5) I don't know if you can answer this or not but... About how many southern islands would you say there are?
5b) Are they all in the same dome?
5c) Had the LOSK not been stopped, would they have eventually conquered the southern islands as well?


non serial questions:

6) Why hasn't The Brotherhood of Makuta attacked Odina yet? I mean, they know where it is, the fortress there was recently destroyed, and most of their numbers are'nt there to defend it...
6b) Is Odina a southern island?

7) Do the Frostelus have a homeland? Or are they like the Matoran in that they don't have any specific homeland but are rather scattered across several islands?


Thank You for Your time.


-makuta of xhini nui-


1) Makuta are telepaths, remember? He telepaths a message to a contact of his on Stelt, who then passes the message through channels to the Zyglak
1a) No
2-2c) No. Takanuva learned what happened from Helryx in BIONICLE Legends #10
3) New
4) If the Order mounts an attack on the BOM, everyone is going to know they exist. You can't field an army and stay secret.
4b) They know as much as they need to know
4c) Such as?
5) Quite a few
5b) No
5c) Probably not. Many of those islands are uninhabited or have civilizations with very low tech and resources, so there really wouldn't have been much to gain by controlling them.
6) The same reason the BOM hasn't wiped out the DH long ago. Because the BOM is focused on the Plan, and the DH is just an annoyance to them.
6a) No
7) They don't have a set homeland

-------------------------------------------

responses:
1) hmmm... I was hoping for some steltian zyglak... oh well.
2) oh.
3) I believe that's new info.
4) Interesting...
5) I believe that's new info too.
6) :???:
7) Also new info.

well, overall, there's some nice info that needs to be added to the wiki's...

EDIT: yes, elite vahki, he should recieve your questions. make sure you post 'em here .

Hi GregF,

I have some questions:

1a. What happens if a Matoran "eats" a sick fish?
1b. How many days can a Toa be without food? E.g. the Toa Nuva don't exactly have time to go fishing, now do they.

2a. Why didn't Teradix tell Mutran about the Energy Storms?
2b. Why didn't Teradix tell the Phantoka about the blinding side-effect of the Ignika?
2c. Does Teradix want to get rid of the other Makuta so he gets it all.


3. Let's say Mata Nui wakes up and decides to kill off the Makuta, how long would it take him?

4a. Will any of Brutaka's species fight with the Order against the BoM? They do have an ability that could come in handy.
4b. What about Axonn's species?

5. I saw that a member asked you if the Order would Keetongu and you answered "yes". Now let me reformulate that question: Will the Order recruit Keetongu?

6a. Will Mutran appear in the September comic?
6b. Any of the vehicles?

7. Are the Rahi native to Voya nui dead now that Voya Nui returned to its original place?

Thanks for your time.


1) Sick in what way? They are not consuming the physical fish, they are consuming its raw energy.
1a) You assume they carry no rations with them
2) Follow the story
3) Not long
4) No efforts are being made to recruit those species, as far as I know, because neither species has anything to gain by opposing the BOM
5) If they can find him, they will ally with him, yes. They won't recruit him as a member.
6) Vehicles do appear in the September comic. I don't think Mutran does, as September focuses on summer sets
7) There weren't that many Rahi there in the first place, and yes, most likely those who could not fly or swim are dead


Draw your own conclusions from this. Also, some stuff for BS01.

Dark Knight spoilers:

Did Joker not kill the other bank robbers in order to get all the money for himself?It would not surprise me at all that Teridax has included the other makuta into his plan.

And anyone remember Chirox's suspicions in the Phantoka comic?
