Funny, I thought Greg said what the parts are is movie plot. I guess he revealed that by accident.

:wakeup2:Interesting. The tribes existed before the ELs.That also brings up another thing... I wonder if there are more than 6 tribes?:t::a::k::a:
When I asked Greg if their were ELs of the nonbasic elements he said it was to early to disscus, so I don't think we'll be hearing the answers to either of our questions for awhile.

Eurika . :br: :br: :br: :br: Please read the last quote from Greg . This Is fantastic . If anyone has any comments Please reply .

QUOTEQUOTEQUOTEQUOTEQUOTEHello again Greg . I have some new Questions here.

1. Is there any chance that some of the other toa in the MU have the potential to become Toa Nuva?

2. How did Artakha know that the Toa Mata would someday be transformed into Toa Nuva? If he didn't know, then how could he make all their masks, nuva symbols, and Nuva cube if he wasn't already aware that they would be needed someday?

3. How is it that Energized Proto can be used to terraform Mata Nui's face but it normally destroys or transforms anything it touches? In other words how can something that is unstable and unreliable be made to repeatedly do something stable and reliably?

4. Would it be possible for the Mask of Life to grant permanent powers similar to the ones found in the MU to the inhabs of Bara Magna, like giving Malum control over fire, or giving Tarduk X-ray vision to make it easier for him to locate hidden objects, or can the Mask only give powers to the MU inhabs?

5. Can you give us a hint about what other types of powers the Mata Nui Bot has? Thank you Bye

1) I'd say no. If we start making more Toa Nuva, it cheapens the ones we have.

2) He knew the potential existed for that to happen, because Artakha is pretty wired into the way things work in the MU

3) Ah, ah, M ... you're making assumptions. We know that the state of Mata Nui in our story was caused by an energized protodermis LEAK .. we never said EP played a role at all in the other times MN was disguised. How do you know the leak did not transform what was used to create the plant life, thus accelerating the process?

4) Well, it's a good question -- would granting powers like that be a function of Life? I can't say yes or no to that, offhand.

5) Well, think about what you know it was doing -- traveling through space, visiting strange, possibly hostile planets and observing them ... what sort of powers do you think it would need?

Replies

Me (or "M" as Greg refers to me, though I'd preffer Monty)
Sinse Energized Proto isn't part of the Camouflage system but there are apparently pipes carrying the stuff somewhere near Mata Nui's face, what is it used for?

Greg
We haven't revealed that yet, but my personal belief is this -- we know there are what look like spare Mata Nui-ish parts on Bara Magna. To me, it's reasonable to assume that was an experiment that failed. So why, then, did Mata Nui as a project succeed? I think the difference was the use of protodermis and the use of EP. Think about it -- EP is capable of transformation or destruction of ANYTHING -- consider what an energy source that would be if you could harness it.

Please feel free to reply . :D

Interesting...this implies EP is Mata Nui's personal energy source. Apparently the Great Beings have a way of harnessing its energy without its destructive capabilities going wild. No wonder it's so valuable.


Yahoo . :br: :br: :br: :br: I finally discovered something big . And if anyone wants to invent a theory relating to this info please list me in the credits (if this is how that kind of stuff works)
I'm especially excited because Greg may have answered another of my questions about what provides the energy for the energy storms .

#7323
New info.

Hey Greg.

1. "They have been dead many, many thousands of years. They look something like Toa ... as you can see, one is in red armor, one in green ... and they wear masks, as we do. But there's something ...different. Maybe a lot of things."

This is about the dead bodies found in Mata Nui's "mind." I would assume these were Glatorian of the Fire and Jungle tribes, correct?
1a. If I had to take a guess, I would say they were two Glatorian who somehow wandered into the Matoran Universe and were trapped there. How close am I?
2. So, assuming what you've said was hinting, Element Lords are beings wearing elemental armor. Right?
2a. Is the Element Lord of Water female?
3. Bara Magna was once just a section of Spherus Magna, but now refers to what appears to be most of it. Was the original area of Spherus Magna entitled "Bara Magna" the area now known as the Wastelands?

Thank you for your time.


:t: :m_o::c:


1) Well, they were not Glatorian at the time, but yes
1a) No, they were supposed to be where they are.
2) I haven't said that -- I said it was a possibility
2a) Haven't decided yet
3) Yes. Means "Great Barren" in Agori


1. I meant Glatorian as in species, not title.
1a. Well, I was going to say that they were spies that the GBs or Mata Nui caught and killed, but I figured I'd stick with the basics. How's that idea?

Thank you for your time.


1) Yup
1a) No, they weren't spies or villains or anyhting like that. They were where they were because that was where the GBs needed them to be.


Sent follow ups to some of this.


:t: :m_o::c:
#7324
Hey GregF, just one question.
Was Mata Nui created on the Bara Magna region of Spherus Magna?
Thanks.


No
#7325


Hi Greg. I was thinking about the Element Lords being made of their element, and it got me thinking: do the Element Lords have any connection to the fire entity, and possibly the Vatuka?

Regards,
BT


No


Thanks. :) Just a few more:

1- Could a Toa control an Element Lord, with enough willpower?
2- Seeing as Bone Hunters are distantly related to Rock Agori, would they be considered an extension of the Agori species along with Zesk, sort of like how a tabby and a lynx are both cats, but different kinds (or how a Toa (species, not just hero) and a Turaga are extensions of the Matoran species)?
3- Is there an Element Lord of Air?

Thanks again, BT


1) No
2) I guess so
3) Not that we have met yet
#7326

Hope you can answer.

1) Have noticed some helmets, like Berix's look like they would fall off with the smallest of gestures; so, do Bara Magna residents have magnetic implants on their heads to keep their helmet from falling?

2) If Malum did not kill the Vorox pack leader, did it join his pack?

3) Is Malum's control-the-Vorox-pack thing a first?

4)How long has Raanu been in office, less than 50 years, more, less than a hundred, more, 200?

5)Can Tarix work as efficiently with one sword as he can with 2?

6) Where does Berix live? We know he's from Tajun, but it looks too far away when he was found by Tarix, Gresh and Strakk.

7) Is Atakus gong to be featured soon?

8)Will the Zesk ever be featured?

9)Did RotGB happen during or after or before Sands of Bara Magna?

10)Who's the oldest Bara Magna resident we know of?

10a)About how old is he/she?

11)The youngest?

11a)About how old is he/she?

12)Do most trainees die before they become Glatorian?

13)Where will Stronious and Gelu be featured, the comics, serials, or what?

14)If Gresh didn't fight in the core war because he was too young, it means that Bara Magnians also have kid-teen-adult cycles, or something similar right?

15) Was Certavus older than Tarix is now when he died?

16)Will Kiry be featured ever ,I mean it's not like you to hand out names and leave them there (Reysa and Dezalk excluded, of course)?

Thanks in advance .

1) Are you referring to the characters or the sets, TN? Because I don't see that with Berix's helmet, myself, in illustration.
2) No. A defeated alpha male does not remain with a pride, if it isn't killed, it wanders off on its own.
3) Far as we know, yes
4) Oh, a lot more
5) I am not sure how to answer this, because it seems kind of obvious that you can always accomplish more with two tools than you can with one, but I don't know what you mean by "efficient"
6) He does live in Tajun, but he was in Vulcanus that day. Villagers in Bara Magna do not stay confined to their villages, especially if they are traders or scavengers.
7) Don't know
8) Again, don't know -- I'm not under any pressure from Marketing to put them in
9) Before
10-11) No idea, not something I have worried about since it's not relevant to my story
12) Trainees are Glatorian, they simply aren't Prime or Second Glatorian and aren't paid as well. I think of them like minor league baseball players.
13) Gelu plays a large role in the first novel. Stronius appears in comics and in the upcoming Papercutz graphic novel
14) It means they age normally, although with obviously much longer lifespans
15) Don't know, why?
16) Yes, first novel


1)I don't think Greg got it...
2)Um...
3)Interesting
4)...
5)Agin, he didn't get it...
6)Interesting
7-8)Awwwwww.....
9)So the traitor could be Tarduk, but I doubt it, since he will not be in the movie :P
10-11)'Nother Awwwwwww......
12)And he didn't get it again.
13)That's new
14)'K
15)It was a 'just cause'
16)That's new too.

:lookhere: This post contains important info and requires your attention and your replies, Greg Needs Your opinion of the Theory in #2, He's using this post, to test the theory, so your opinion's are important. :lookhere:

QUOTE
Hi Greg, Today's questions have been brought to you by the letter "M"
If you've ever watched Sesame Street then that last line should be really funny.

Ok now for the questions

1. Could those Mata Nui-ish parts on Bara Magna be used for anything, Like maybe melted down and recycled?

1a. Could they be refurbished and fit together to make a second Mata Nui?

1b. could the pieces prove to be useful to Mata Nui someday?


2. "Think about it -- EP is capable of transformation or destruction of ANYTHING -- consider what an energy source that would be if you could harness it."

Ok Greg, I considered things a little and I was wondering what you think of my Theory.

EP is able to transform and destroy almost anything, it has the potential to provide enormous amounts of energy. Anti-matter can destroy almost anything, just like EP can, But when anti-matter destroys matter, it converts both itself and the matter into energy, Mind boggling amounts of energy. So EP could be harnessed in the same way, and the resulting energy could be used to heat things, as well as provide light, if the two energies could be safely channeled to where they are needed, in safe quantities. Many lightstones receive their power from Metru Nui, and don't Heatstones and other lightstone receive their power from Karda Nui?
Well where does Karda Nui get it's power from? Apparently the energy comes from a controlled reaction of EP with another substance.

Am I getting warm?

3. Is that "lake/organism" on the alternate Spherus Magna related to the EP power providing process in any way?
When the Skyfighter merely touched its surface, the lake turned it into pure energy.

Thanks . Oh and from now on, I'd like to be refer to as Monty, if that's alright with you.


M is faster to type, when I have 40 PMs waiting to be gotten to.

1) Yes
1a) By whom? The Agori have no idea how to do that.
1b) In what way?
2) Basically, I don't know -- I do think that's a workable theory. But I haven't decided on this myself yet, so I am sort of throwing the concept out to BZP through you to see what members think about it.
3) Nope

2)Well Everyone, What's your opinion of Greg's Idea and My theory? I personally think it makes total sense . And It explains a lot of things.

Please reply, Greg Needs your input on this
Oh and if you don't want to reply, please PM your friends to see if they want to reply.
Thank you.

Please visit the, "Storyline and Theories forum" and then "EP the source of MN's Power?... if you're interested in the Theory
#7328

If you're going to ask people's opinion's, it's probably better you make a separate topic. Or perhaps that should be discussed in either the Protodermis Topic or the Mata Nui Topic

You should ask the staff.
#7329
Hi again Greg, I found another excerpt that I was tricked by (concerning the use of EP in the Camouflage system) that needs to be edited


http://biosector01.com/wiki/index.php/Mata_Nui_%28Being%29

This is from the Mata Nui's Abilities and traits section

"His body is equipped with a camouflage system that instantly engages whenever he lands to observe a place. This produces localized plant flora so as to disguise him. When he crash landed, the system was damaged, and the Energized Protodermis used to create the flora leaked out, triggering the system and disguising him.

I'm not saying this proves that EP is used to create the Flora, quite the opposite, I think that this article could use some editing. Right?

Thanks


Yes, probably


me
You heard the man, Somebody needs to Edit that info ASAP . :D
#7330
Hi Mr Farshtey a few questions for you.

1) Are Branar's weapons the same as a normal Skrall?

2) Are there more Vorox or Skrall in Bara Magna?

3) Do ALL Skrall wields Thornax Launchers?

Thanks.


1) Yes
2) Vorox
3) Well, they don't carry them around with them every minute, but if they have to leave Roxtus on patrol, they would take launchers, yes


#7331
I just have some questions, mostly about the toa nuva's adaptive armor.....this is the fourth time i've sent this, so im sorry if youve been to busy....

1) When does the Toa Nuva's adaptive armor revert to its defult?
2) Why were the toa still in their phantoka/mistika forms in metru-nui in the comics?
3) What weapons do the toa carry in their defult, and are they adaptive?
3a) If so, what form do they take in their defult?
4) Where is tahu currently? what form is his adaptive armor in?

THANKS . . . .


1) When it is in a standard environment and not under attack
2) Because the comic illustrator had to show the current sets, not sets that haven't been for sale in six years
3) Since I have never written about them in their default adaptive armor, I don't have this info
4) Tahu was dealt with in an early chapter of ROS

#7333
Hi Greg,

I've got ten questions for you today. :)

1) Does Mata Nui have sufficient knowledge or skills related to Giant Robots to lead the construction of another Great Spirit should he be provided with the right materials, workforce and schematics if necessary?

2) The Arena Magna and Vulcanus Arena in the deserts have curved wavy walls that seem to be inspired by sand and dunes. Would it be reasonable to assume that an Iconox Arena in the White Quartes Mountains would be inspired by snowflakes/ice?

3) In the summer story media, what will feature more and be more significant - the vehicles or their drivers?

4) How did Stronius disable a Baterra? Did he just swing his club at every item near him and got lucky?

5) Regarding the Baterra's shapeshifting abilities, have you decided on maximum and minimum sizes that they can morph into, or is it more of a shapeshifting within reason kind of power?

6) What traits of Baterra did the Great Beings want to replicate when they based the Bohrok on Baterra designs?

7) You said to someone else that a Toa could not control an Elemental Lord using their powers. Does this mean that Elemental Lords are not made of their element, or that an Elemental Lord's control over themselves negates the Toa's power?

8) The Great Beings seemed to know a lot about Energised Protodermis and its properties, however did they ever find out why such a powerful substance was in their planet's core, and what was the cause of it emerging?

9) Considering that Vorox and Zesk don't repair or remodel their weapons, masks or armour any more, would it be safe to say that Pre-Cataclysm Vorox and Zesk looked practically the same, albeit with less primal postures and better condition gear?

10) How is it that the Vorox and Zesk are the most populous sub-species of Glatorian on Bara Magna when they are the least intelligent? Is it due to natural adaptations to living in the desert?

Thank you for your time,

Onuta Nuva


1) No
2) Not really something I have thought about, since I'm not an artist
3) Unknown at this point, but how do you feature one without the other?
4) That gets revealed in the Papercutz graphic novel, so you'll find out when that comes out
5) It's more of a within reason. I don't want to rob them of their mystique by providing details on their power specs
6) Their compact physical shape
7) We don't know that an EL is made out of his element, but if he/she was, he's an individual -- controlling him would mean using mind control. If it were possible to do this, couldn't Vakama have just controlled the fire elemental he fought?
8) No, because it was irrelevant to their researches.
9) Yes
10) They are in their native region -- they are the sand tribe, which was always based in the Bara Magna region. So there were more of them there to start with than anyone else.


:)
#7334
Hello Greg. I have some questions for you.


1. Would you say Gelu is closer to Gresh or Strakk personality wise?

2. Is there one thing you can say about the summer sets? If so, can you tell me what that one thing is? If not, don't bother answering this question at all.

3. Will both riders of Kaxium V3 have names?

4. Will any of the vehicle riders besides Crotesius and Scodonius appear in the story?


Thank you for your time.


1) I think a little closer to Gresh, but not too much
2) No
3) Yes
4) Most likely, someplace



Some pretty neat stuff.

That was just a tool he was carrying for the mission he was on. Swords and shields are generally far more useful than whips if you're a foot soldier.

Hello again, Greg . Just a few more questions:

1)Did you gave any hints on who the traitor would be in EoTS 5?
1a)Or did you try to lead us away from the real traitor?
2)All the vehicle sets are not going to be featured in the movie, correct?
3)All the Glatorian Legends, Gresh, Strakk and Tarix fought the Skrall in Fall of Atero, correct?

Thanks again .


1-1a) Neither. I was mainly concerned with not doing anything to reveal the traitor's gender. I am not allowed to give clues to who the traitor is, that gets revealed in the movie.
2) Actually, that's not the case. The Skopio creature, which inspired the Skopio vehicle, shows up in the movie. As for the other vehicles, I don't know, I haven't seen the film.
3) Yes

Greg, I PMed u with some of these questions, and you never replied. I guess I should've posted them here, right?

1) When u have time, could u look @ my script for my Movie about Jovan's team and tell me how accurate it is? I can send it with Email once destro gives it to me and I edit it.
2) Do the toa that used the mask and the one with the Elda have to be different? In my movie, they're the same.
3) How many toa were on his team? I have six, like usual.
Jovan
Neirona--Water
Sarbehx--Air
Derit--Plantlife (Elda,SPOILER WARNING .Uses Ignika)
Ireft--Fire (Olmak)
Imponko--Sonics
4) When did Spiriah change the Skakdi? B4 or After Jovan's team was on their quest?
5) If someone besides the nuva wore the Artahka-updated masks, would they still be Nuva masks? Would those toa be able to access those powers?

Thank you so much for even reading this, Greg .

Hey GregF, just two questions.
1. Can Protodermis turn into a gaseous state?
2. How were the wild Rahkshi created on Metru Nui? By Teridax?
Thanks.


1) I would assume that liquid protodermis can, yes.
2) Or they could have been pre-existing ones who simply wound up there, the same way wild Rahi do

2. Don't they have to come from some Makuta, though?


2) Yes, but they could have been made by any Makuta at any time.

It'd make sense. Think about all the vehicles we have that are named after animals.
#7348
some new(?) stuff:
Am I correct in thinking that Stronius earned his name by killing a Baterra?


No. Stronius is an elite warrior, he already had a name before that. He earned it in the Core War.


1: Are the Red Star beings equivalent to the MU inhabitants in that they sustain and help the Red Star, put in when the GB's built it?

2: Does the name of 'the Collapse' disaster referred to in the Crossing have anything to do with the MN-like parts scattered around BM?

3: You have stated in the past that you will not reintroduce old characters into the comics because their sets are no longer available. I have two sub-questions pertaining to this:
3a: Couldn't the artist just find set pics online?
3b: Then how come Stuart Sayger was able to draw Turaga Vakama in Death of a Hero?


1) Too early to discuss
2) The Collapse is a mistranslation, CB - - the word used in the manuscript is Shattering
3a) The point of the comics is to promote set sales, not sets we are no longer selling.
3b) Because we had to show the memorial for Matoro for the scene where Makuta takes over to work, and it would make no story sense to have a memorial with no Turaga present.

Hi.

Mr. Greg.

I have to questions for you.
1. How do you Pronounce your last name?
2. Is Lariska a Vortixx?

Thanks.

:v:


1) Farsh-tee
2) No. I get this question a lot, actually, and I am not sure why people think she is one, since I have never thought of her as one.


Mr. Greg.
Thanks for answering my questions.
I'm not sure why I think of Lariska being a Vortixx I just do.
1. Is Lariska a member of the Lariska species?

:v:


2) There is no Lariska species


Hmmmmm.
#7351
1. Do Makuta using Exo-Toa as a shell have weakened Shadow powers the same way Toa using Exo-Toa as armor have weakened Elemental Powers?

2. Considering that Exo-Toa are called Exo-Toa in the first place, did the Brotherhood intend to use them as armor for Toa?

2b. More specifically, as armor for their Toa Hagah?

3. Do the tribes of Bara Magna use any light sources besides sunlight?

4. With Daxia destroyed, what is the status of the Staff of Artakha?

5. You mentioned that Kiina was sort of named after your wife. Is that the only character this year to be named after someone?


1) Depends on what you mean. Are you talking about Makuta possessing Exo-Toa via antidermis, or Makuta physically using the armor the way Toa do?
2) The Exo-Toa were created as a means to shut down the Bahrag if the Bohrok ever got out at the wrong time so they were designed for use by Toa.
2b) No
3) Yes. Fire.
4) Hasn't been revealed yet
5) Yes. The only other characters we have named after real people were the artists involved in the Atlas book a couple years back. Other than that, we don't do that.

Some are interesting. Others are kind of disappointing.

1. I was thinking about the Makuta and Umbra. Makuta are pure darkness (in the main dimension) and Umbra is pure light. Was he always pure light, or was he drained of shadow like the Makuta were drained of light?

2. I heard that Ahkmou was originally going to be featured as a Shadow Toa during the Karda-nui part of the story, I have two questions on this:
a) Why wasn't he featured?
cool.gif Will he eventually be?

3. Red toa appear to be the most common leaders, The Red Star seems to have something to do with Destiny (since it can predict the future) and the Red Rahkshi control fear which "Keeps them from their Destiny." How is red linked to destiny?

4. Is the Great Spirit under Bara-Magna's sands opperational, or even in one piece?

5. Kind of a strange question, but does the Mata-nui-resembling mark on the Ignika have any significance?

6. Where/when was MoMN's name revealed to be Teridax?

7. Does the Shadowed One even have a name, I mean have you ever made one for him? (I've heard you will never reveal it though)

8. Is it even possible for Great-great masks like the Kraahkan, Avohkii, Vahi, or Ignika to be destroyed by Energized Protodermis? If no, then would the Ignika fused with a Vahi make a Vahi with a mind, resulting in a Toa of time? If so, will this ever happen? (Crosses fingers)

9. Will Artakha survive the Rahkshi attack?

10. Does Bara/Spherus Magna have its own language, if so, how would you say great spirit, and is this the name of the great Spirit in Bara Magna?

11. Do you ever get tired of answering questions? if so, then I am so sorry for asking so many .

12. How in the world did the GBs mess up Krana so bad that they turned out as Zyglak???

13. Is Krika truly dead, or just in a ghostly state? If he is alive, is it reversible? (Favorite Makuta)

14. What is there in the southern island chains, and are some of the creatures there the weird Matoran-like creatures that sowed up in one panel of a previous Bionicle Magazine?

15. How long after the current time does Krakua become a Toa?

16. Why in Karzahni are almost all the toa either Fire, Water (especially water), Air, Ice, Earth, Stone, or Light? Why don't we have a toa of Plantlife somewhere, it seems like an extremely useful element (on that note, could a ToP make one of those trees that bear energy fruit?)

I have to stop before I put 20 more, but please only answer the ones you want to.

Your fan,
Kehuri


1) Umbra was created as he is, he did not have to be drained of shadow
2) Because the original plan was to do a Toa of Shadow set that year, and the plan was cancelled. Given that, there are no plans to make him a Toa in story.
3) It's not. Fear does keep you from achieving your destiny, and red Toa are often leaders because red Toa sell the best, so we keep them in the forefront in story.
4) No and no.
5) Well, as you say, it resembles Mata Nui, and Ignika's role is to aid Mata Nui when is ill.
6) It was revealed in 2008, in one of the books, I believe
7) Yes, he does
8) Sure, they can be destroyed. But merging two masks together does not get you the properties of both masks combined, anymore than merging blue and red gets you blue-red -- it gets you green.
9) Follow the story and find out
10) Yes, it does, they speak Agori. We do not have a translation for Great Spirit in Agori because they have never known of one. They don't know from Great Spirits, that is a Matoran phrase.
11) When I do, I stop answering them
12) Accidents happen in science. Happens in our world, why wouldn't it happen in theirs?
13) Krika is dead
14) I don't know which Matoran you are referring to, but most of the southern chain is unexplored by the Matoran, so no one knows what's down there.
15) Krakua already is a Toa. He showed up as a Toa in one of the serials. The serial in which he was shown as a Matoran was a flashback of Mazeka's history.
16) Why do you assume that's the case? There is one Toa of Light in the entire universe, and most of the Toa we have made sets of have been in the six main colors, which is why they are those elements. But we have had Toa of Plant Life show up in the books, and we also know there are Toa of Iron, Toa of Gravity, Toa of Sonics, and others.

Follow-ups:

10. Does Bara/Spherus Magna have its own language, if so, how would you say great spirit, and is this the name of the great Spirit in Bara Magna?

12. How in the world did the GBs mess up Krana so bad that they turned out as Zyglak???

14. What is there in the southern island chains, and are some of the creatures there the weird Matoran-like creatures that sowed up in one panel of a previous Bionicle Magazine?

16. Why in Karzahni are almost all the toa either Fire, Water (especially water), Air, Ice, Earth, Stone, or Light? Why don't we have a toa of Plantlife somewhere, it seems like an extremely useful element (on that note, could a ToP make one of those trees that bear energy fruit?)

10) So the Agori didn't arrive in Bara Magna via the Great Spirit? Was it carrying Matoran?

12. I suppose I didn't exactly ask that one correctly. I meant to ask how mask-looking things turned out like velociraptors?

14. I meant the comic in which Matoro puts on the Mask of life.

16. I meant why almost all the toa that ever had sets were the six "main" elements and light?

Thanks again .

10) The Agori are the native species of Bara Magna. They were not created by the Great Beings, like Matoran were, and they don't even know what a Great Spirit is. The robot pieces visible in the desert are from a Great Being project that never functioned.
12) Keep in mind that Zyglak were not "made from" krana. Krana and Zyglak were both made from what was left over from the process used to create Matoran.
14) Sorry, I still don't know what you are referring to.
16) Because those six colors tested the best with focus groups, so it made sense to stick with them.

Greg seems to go back and forth on whether the GBs created the Agori, don't you think?

No, he's always said the GBs didn't create the Agori.

Dear Greg,

I just have one question:

During the Toa Metru stories, the toa metru fought a being made of fire and one made of sound, does this have any connection to the elemental lords at Bara Magna? they seem disturbingly familiar.

Thanks for your time.


No.


Just something I wanted to confirm

Hi, Greg. I hope everything goes well. I have some questions.

1)Will we ever see Takadox again?
2)Do the beings in the Red Star live in a perpetual red light?
3)Does the Red Star light disappear when it is attached to Mata Nui?
4)Is the Red Star 'alive', like Mata Nui?
5)Is the Skrall hired by the hero Agori the same who fought Gresh?

I hope you can answer.


1) Can't see why not
2) No
3) You are assuming the light comes from the star, as opposed to just being reflected sunlight
4) No
5) No


Ok, thanks :). Just some other questions.

1) Will we ever see the Toa Kaita agian? Or maybe new ones?
2) Do you know who will draw Hydraxon's tale and the special Bara Magna comic?
3) You said in the special BM comic we'll see how Stronius "killed" a Baterra. Does this mean that we will see a Baterra in comic form?
4) Why does the Red Star looks red if it's just reflected sunlight?
5) Is the EOP moon someway related to Mata Nui? Or has it some storyline significance?

Thanks again.


1) No plans for that right now
2) I have seen the art, but don't know his name
3) Yes
4) Outside color of it is red
5) In what way?


5) Any way. like if it's some sort of replacement for the RS, something MN has to inspect, or if it is part of him generally.
4) Why was it colored in red, then?
And another one:
Are there different kinds of female Skrall for each class ("normal", special forces and leader)?


5) No moon is part of Mata Nui, Mata Nui is a robot, nor is the moon a replacement for RS -- the moon is an astral body, RS is not.
4) Because that is what the Great Beings chose to do.
6) No

Not much interesting, but still some info.

Not much interesting you say? The thing that we will see Stronius owneding a Baterra (In Set Form .) is very interesting for me :D

I got some more follow-ups to my previous post .

16. Why in Karzahni are almost all the toa either Fire, Water (especially water), Air, Ice, Earth, Stone, or Light? Why don't we have a toa of Plantlife somewhere, it seems like an extremely useful element (on that note, could a ToP make one of those trees that bear energy fruit?)

I see. Okay, one last, why are the green ones wind and not plants?


Compare the amount of plants inside a robot to the amount of air -- which kind of Toa is needed more?

5. Kind of a strange question, but does the Mata-nui-resembling mark on the Ignika have any significance?

5) Well, as you say, it resembles Mata Nui, and Ignika's role is to aid Mata Nui when is ill.


I don't know if it's canonical, but in VNOLG, the Ignika looked like my avatar:


Was the change a result of it needing to aid Mata-nui as you have previously said?
[/QUOTE]


The Ignika, like life itself, can take on many forms.

Hello Greg. These questions are about the 2 dead beings in Mata Niu's Head

1) Did Mata Nui know there were 2 glatorian in his head?
2) Bomonga said that the 2 beings wore masks like they do. How did they get them?
3) Did the Great beigs put them there against there will?
4) Was it those 2 that wrote those inscriptions in Mata Nui's head the Bomonga red?

Thank you for your time.


1) Yes
2) Bomonga was looking at their helmets, which even some BZPers initially mistook for Toa masks on here.
3) No
4) No, the Great Beings wrote those.

I think some of thers might be new.
