Hey Greg, something has been bugging me:
What of the Bohrok?
I might be slow about the storyline, but at least I can remember you saying something about the bohrok returning.
And also, I found a set: 8954 Mazeka
I didn't find a picture about him/her on the Toy Fair Pictures. Does this character come later in the tale? Or is it something you can't answer?
#962
Djangocat, you have to PM your questions to Greg via the link on the first page. :P

The Bohrok have recently cleaned the island of Mata Nui, and they are now asleep again. :P
And Mazeka is a Matoran with a vehicle. He is an exclusive set, so information of him is released later. :P
#963
Mazeka is a store exclusive and exclusive sets aren't shown at toyfair.

From GregF:

This is really more of an FYI than anything else, as many of you already guessed this -- but to make it official, the grand prize winner of the BrickMaster Makuta Building Contest will be considered Makuta Miserix for the purposes of the story.

I just read that ., and I kneeeeew it :D
#966
Ugh, great now most people won't be able to build Miserix because they don't have the pieces or they don't have the right instuctions :(
#967
Why not? It's perfectly okay to substitute parts for others if they don't have the exact ones.
#968
Bunch of trivia.

1. Did the Makuta wear so-called 'dark' masks while they were still considered good?
1) Yes
1. If the Makuta already wore 'dark' masks, didn't this affect how the Matoran and such saw them?
1) Up until the Matoran civil war in Metru Nui, Matoran didn't have loads of direct contact with Makuta. Makuta were tied up making Rahi.

2. If Brutaka had cut Spiriah open, could he have absorbed Spiriah's energy?
2) Yes

3. Was Lewa's scene with the shadow leech in Realm of Fear a reference to his misfortunes with infected masks and krana in earlier years?
3) Yes

4. Can someone using an Iden possess robots?
4) I would say yes

5. Is Krika's personality anything like that of his alter-ego in Dark Mirror?
5) How would you describe it in DM?
5. I'd say bitingly sarcastic and cynical, with a very low view of Matoran (though I think the latter applies to all Makuta).
5) Probably less sarcastic in our universe, but just as cynical if not moreso.

6. In general, what do the Phantoka Makuta think of their Shadow Matoran's advice (such as when Radiak said they should wait for Icarax)?
6) I think they figure they can take it or leave it. They didn't corrupt the Matoran for their battle strategies, they did it to keep them from becoming Toa of Light.

7. I believe you said somewhere that Takanuva looks like his 2003 form, but with black armor. Yet the Makuta in DM believed him when he said he was a Toa of Light...
7) It's only partially black, if you look at the 2008 set. And if you are a Makuta, do you really want to challenge a Toa of Light to prove he is what he says he is?

So now I won't be able to buy him .I thought he could of been the prize.
#970
People will probably MOC him. So what is the summer combiner?
#971
-}Kaihiru{-
Mazeka is a store exclusive and exclusive sets aren't shown at toyfair.
-Kaihiru

EDIT: Darn, I got beat. :P

I know this is abit off topic, but oh well :P
Is Mazeka is a store exclusive, wont he have a mask we are already familiar with? :wacko:
#972
Depends on what the set designers made him have. Vultraz didn't.

Ah,I wanted to build Miserix so bad . :angry: Hopefuly he uses ONLY pieces from the Canister Makuta. :begging:

Some new answers from Greg.

1.When is a Toa seal made - when 6 toa of difirent elements shoot blasts of their elements at their targer or when they combine their elemental energy?
1) It requires all six being combined into one blast
1.I just needed clearing that.

2.What happend to the Rahi Nui after the Bohrokcleaned the island?
2) Rahi Nui was in a cave below the surface, so was not affected by this
2.I thought the Bohrok might have killed it, but it seems thay haven't.

3.How are Golden Kahoni made?
3) Hasn't been revealed
3.I wonder when are we going to learn.

4.
He did not recognize where he was, nor did he have any idea who the five figures nearby might be. Each of them was lying on a slab, just like him, and each wore colored armor and a mask. But where he was red, they were other hues: white, blue, green, black, and brown.

^From the excerpt of BL10 that you so generously provided us.
Is Tahu the one that regains his memories?
4) That excerpt is from when Tahu first awakens as a Toa 100,000 years ago, so it does not relate to regaining his memories in the present
4.There goes my theory.

I kinda doubt it. The purpose of the contest is to see who can creatively build a Makuta out of pieces they have, not rearrange the pieces on canister sets. I'm hoping that the winner won't be just a Makuta Phantoka with slightly different pieces.

#982
1. Is the Krahkan a flip mask in the story?

2. Why doesn't Axxon know about Brutaka? (I mean why hasn't the Order told him?)

3. Does Takanuva know about his shadow power?

4. Can Takanuva absorb shadow?

By the way, at the end of LOMN Jaller's broken mask was a noble Komau. Just wanted to make shure you knew for Dark Mirror.

1) I've never made a point of mentioning the flipping in story, it was always just a set feature
2) Why bother? Axonn is busy with the VN Matoran and isn't in a position to be helping Brutaka out, so why does he need to know this now?
3) Yes
4) Yes

Well it's told from Tahu's point of veiw, so it still could be him. greg didn't deny it, he cant deny or confirm it.

calc, do you mean May 1st? Because it is March 6th.

The lightstone part is weird. How are they powered by Metru Nui?

:t::a::k::a:
#985
Metru Nui actually powers quite a bit of the Matoran universe, which is why so many others, like the Dark Hunters, covet it.
#986
Epic, to the EXTREAME, but not too hard to build.

Hellos.

2. In the first two movies there were vines that grew underground and glowed brightly. (Takua once plucked off some leaves and put them above his head like glowing bunny ears, if you remember.) Though they had no thorns and were a different color, I was wondering if you think that these were a type of lightvine.

And some not quite SitS-related questions:

4. Are lightstones powered through Karda Nui?

5. Underneath his adaptive armor, is Pohatu still brown?

6. All of the Nuva but Lewa have had their eye-colors changed in the sets.
I assume that, because they've only put on new armor, their new eye-colors are non-canon. Am I correct in this assumption?


2) Could be

4) And through Metru Nui as well
5) Good question .. how much of a Toa's color comes from someplace other than his armor?
6) The change in "eye color" could well be a result of the fact that there are filters over their eyes in the new masks to protect their optics from the effects of high speed flying.

2. Cholie (who's a BS01 moderator) told me to get an actual yes or no answer on this, so... Yes or no...?


2) I don't recall anyone asking me about lightvine as it related to past animations before you did.
Well I mentioned it on the lightvine talk-page on BS01 and he told me to get confirmation...


I would say yes, it is most likely they are some variant of the lightvine that exists in Karda Nui. That would make sense.

You could've just removed the spoilers or told me to remove them...

Hi Mr. Farshtey, I have some more questions;

1. Will the way
Teridax
was able to poison Mata Nui ever be revealed?

2. I never understood Fenrakk spawn spiders. How big are they, and what can they do?

3. Is shooting shadow a natural ability of the Vortixx?

Thanks for your time

-Prototoa



1) Used a virus
2) Well, big enough for a Toa to ride. Beyond that, I don't think we gave them any special powers, they didn't show up a lot in the story.
3) No

Hi Mr. Farshtey, I have some questions about the new book,

1. It said that Toa Ignika didn't have a midak skyblaster. Does he get it later?

2. How does Photok's speed power work? Does he activate it when he's linked with Pohatu and then let go?

3. Do shadow leeches have tails in the story?

Thanks a lot,

-Prototoa



1) Yes
2) It only works if he is linked to a Toa
3) Not something I have worried about

I somewhat disagree. I don't think that it should be a Makuta Phantoka with different pieces, but I would hate see some overly large and complicated MOC that the average person can't build. Since they have chosen the name the winner a main character, Miserix, it should be clever well constructed design, something that everybody can build.

Great to learn more about the matoran civil war...what does mutran mean by "heading for a meeting with a legend... a legend named Tren Krom."well MC4 has good info. Never knew that Mutran is the Makuta of the Matoran Mainland.

The center of it; the mainland is huge. And as far as this "Ten Krom" thing goes, I think that, in this case, he is actually talking about a person... or being. Maybe the River and the Peninsula were named after him?
#998
To be specific, he's the Makuta of the center section of it, which is presumably what became Voya Nui.

I wonder if this "Tren Krom" is related to Gorast, the ruler of the Peninsula.
