Makuta Desaima
A few random tidbits answered. Got same day response, too .

Good day to you, Mr Greg. I'd like to ask you a few questions:

1- Since the Makuta do not make their masks out of kanoka discs, what do they make them out of?

2- Since the Makuta originally served Mata Nui, does this mean that they first had different masks than they had now, or that they wear the same ones they first had? I ask this question because the likes of the Jutlin seem rather destructive for them to have had at the time.

3- Because Takanuva is now part shadow, is it possible that a Makuta could weaken his light side and stengthen his shadow side by hitting him with elemental shadow, or channeling it into him?

4- In Dark Mirror, alt-Brutaka is dead, but is his mask still lying around somewhere, or destroyed? If there are possibly no other Olmaks (since the only bearer we know is Brutaka) how can he get back to 'our' pocket dimension? By the fluke that 'our' Brutaka finds the right portal?

5- I recall you mentioning somewhere a while ago that the Toa Ignika has the mind of a "sheltered toddler", yet apparentely to some 'stat' figures (see near bottom of this page for instance), he has a mind of 14, which is rather high compared to other characters. Is it that he's smart, but just lacks emotional control, much like a young child? Or is that 'stat' figure false?

6- What sort of things can the Toa Ignika do with its powers? Sap life, mutate beings, kill them, empower them etc?

7- Is it possible for the Toa Ignika to bring any inanimate object to life? Can it reanimate dead beings?

8- Was the Great Being that was locked up for going insane (due to an Ignika curse) in the Bionicle Universe?

Thank you for your time.



1) Hasn't been revealed, but it is quite likely that other Toa like Lesovikk, Dume, and others who were not native to Metru Nui also did not have their masks made from Kanoka
2) Yes, they did, and consider this - you have a Matoran village on a wooded island. There's a huge storm and tons of trees fall, cutting off the roads leading in and out of the village. You can have the Matoran work for days trying to clear the trees -- or you can use the Jutlin and make the trees rot rapidly so that the obstacles are cleared.
3) Hitting him with shadow would not do that, because the shadow would not be going into him, anymore than if you hit someone with a laser beam you are adding light to them.
4) Follow the story and find out
5) I have known plenty of people who had incredibly high IQs and were quite brilliant, but also very naive and immature. I have also met a lot of smart people who, in the grand scheme of things, are still pretty much "sheltered" because they have never been exposed to any other viewpoints but theirs and their family's.
6) And evolve them, and devolve them
7) It cannot reanimate the dead, no. It can bring life to objects providing those objects have some organic molecules in them.
8) No GBs are in the BIONICLE universe, no. It would be sort of like asking, "Is Makuta Desaima inside that LEGO model he built?"


I could have sworn I read somewhere that the Makuta's masks are made of Protosteel. Or am I just crazy?

No, you're not crazy, I saw that too.
#1403
People like my username? I'm flattered :P. About the masks though: since its possible that the masks indeed may be made out of protodermis, the power they have might be determined by what virus was used, which is a possibility since the Makuta toy around with them so much. An example that supports this is when Takanuva is given flight ability by Krika in Dark Mirror.
#1404
Sorry if any of these has been answered before, as I haven't read the last 5 pages of this topic yet.

1) Tren Krom has been confirmed not to be a Great Being. Is he a Great Spirit that has left his realm for reason?
1) No.

2) Is he older than the Matoran universe and the "stars" of Metru Nui, or is he older than what we humans refer to as the universe?

2) Matoran universe, not real universe.


3) Number three basically just confirmed that Tren Krom was based on Lovecraft's horror style, specifically Cthulu.


<(Katuko)>
#1405
1) Will Trinuma Be a set or Combiner?, And when would it be displayed or Released?
2) Is Tren Krom Good, Nuetral, or just Bad?
3) Who Does this Makuta http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/lehuanuv...miserix_002.jpg
Remind you of?
4) Can someone make another kraahkan - mask of shadows, if so , how?
5) Can Makuta control any Elements besides Shadow?
6) Is Trinuma at Metru Nui Now?
7) What powers does the Disk of Time Have?

1) Combiner, and probably in July BrickMaster
2) Well, let's see as the story goes along
3) I don't really have time for this sort of thing right now, sorry.
4) I am sure Artakha could
5) No
6) No
7) Same as the Mask of Time has

#1406
Hi Mr.Greg . I know that you're busy so I have only some questions.

1)If Takanuva uses all his shodow power, will he return a Toa of Light?

2)Can the Nuva use the summer Makuta's masks?

3)Teridax is in a place that we've never seen. Its location will be showed at the end of the year. It's not where Mata Nui is.
In 2009 there's a restart but not a compleatly new universe. So, Teridax is in a place that has something to do with 2009?

Thanks for answering and congrats for Dark Mirror that is becoming very intresting.


1) No.
2) Can they? Yes. Will they? No.
3) No. Teridax is still within the Matoran universe, just not in a place we have mentioned or visited in story. 2009 takes place outside of this universe.
#1407
Tahu Nuva 62, To get the answer, PM Greg. The link is on the first page of the topic.
#1408
I was talking with one of my friends and I thought of a couple questions.

1. He said you confirmed that Mata Nui is in fact NOT on the Red Star. Is this true?

2. As of now, we've never had mention of the beings on the Red Star, besides the time Gali used the telescope, correct?

3. And a couple curiosities of my own. Bitil's mask summons past selves. Well, since he has to tell them why they're where they are, is this only because they know what they're supposed to do, because they know what their mask power is and therefore know that Bitil summoned them?

4. Even if Makuta have no light, is it possible for a Makuta to make his or herself white and gold?


1) Yes
2) Correct
3) Sure
4) Yes


1 and 2 blow up my theory. :unsure:

5) Can Makuta control any Elements besides Shadow?

5) No


I even remember Greg saying this before, but they control all of the Kal abilities, 5 of which are elements, no? Greg even mentions them using Sonics and Gravity now and again, I believe...

Ya, Greg said that their masks are made out of protosteel and made in a way so they can shapshift with their armour. Too lazy to find the quote. :P

Hello Greg

I have a few Questions About Tren Krom.

1)Is it possable he/it existed before the "matoran univerce" existed?

2)You said that Tren Krom was made to anwser a Question many
fans have asked you, is it posable the Question was "can there be a character
with "force" like powers", I ask because we have seen him use some form of mind
reading, and it is possable that he might be able to controle all the rocks on the
island to create the wall by moveing them with his mind?

3) Is Tren Kroms Mind Reading power Powerful enogh to "bash" though the sheild
proteting the minds of OoMN Mebers?

Thanks for your time

1) Before parts of it did, yes
2) No, I have very rarely ever been asked that
3) Well, we'll see

To the man in control of virtually all of BIONICLE, who can crush the entire BIONICLE universe, and our hearts with it, on a mere whim (with the LEGO company's consent, of course), who is known as Greg

I have several questions concerning the masks in BIONICLE.

1) What advantage does the Miru have over the Kadin? If none, why make the former?

2) What advantage does the Huna have over the Voltiak? If none, why make the former?

3) What advantage does the Ruru have over the Akaku? If none, why make the former?

4) Do Radiak, Galva, and Kirop wear powerless noble Jutlin, Avsa, and Shelek, respectively?

5) Can a Tryna user be subject to a mental attack, such as from Hakann or a Suletu user?

6) Can a Tryna user inhabit an unconcious person or a rahi?

7) Is Toa Norik's Pehkui the mask's standard shape? If not, will it ever be revealed?

8) Could you give the complete list of Kanoka disks that combine to form the masks revealed from 2006 till now?

Thank you in advance for answering these questions to the best of your ability, oh great and powerful Greg.


1-3) To start with, you are assuming that every mask maker has a choice of, say, Kadin or Miru. That's not the case. There were no Kadin in Metru Nui, so obviously they did not have the option of making them there. To use your first question, why do we bother having hot air balloons if we have jets? As for the rest, Huna makes you invisible, Volitak does not -- Volitak deadens the sound you make as you move, Huna does not. Ruru lets you see in the dark, Akaku does not.

4) No

5) Tryna is the mask of Reanimation, why would it protect you from mental attack?

6) Same question, Tryna is the Mask of Reanimation, why would it let you possess anything?

7) No, it's not, and I can't reveal the standard shape if it does not exist in plastic.

8) No, I have no time to do that. I am extremely busy. In addition, many of the masks seen since 2006 were not made in Metru Nui, therefore there may be no Kanoka disks involved in their creation. We don't know that masks are made using Kanoka disks in other places.


Sorry to bother you again, oh great one, but I had a mental lapse when asking questions 5 and 6. Instead of Tryna, I ment an Iden. Sorry if this caused some wasted time on your part, and thank you again.


5) An Iden would not protect you from mental attack
6) No. An Iden user cannot go into a living body that has a spirit already in it.


1)Hot air balloons are for recreational purposes. Mirus are not. Its never been proven that there were no Kadin on MN, too. They DID have flight Kanoka on MN, and, according to the answer to question 7, shape doesn't really matter. B)
3)I always thought the akaku let you see everything, even in the dark
4)If not those, what masks do they wear? :huh:
6)Now thats a moral issue. DO rahi actually have souls? :blink:
8)Ah man... <_<
#1414
Hello. Just one question today:

The atlas showed Zakaz and Artakha both having what resembles chutes. Do they actually have these or was it just artistic license of the illustrators?


Would make sense that they would, it's known tech


EDIT: Link fixed.
#1415
More questions. Hooray.

1.Will Krakha's freedom from the Field of Darkness become important soon?
2.Now that the Toa Mahri have fulfilled their destiny, why haven't they become Turaga?
3.Why is Turaga Dume so angst about telling the Matoran the truth?
4.When will we get preveiws of the 2009 stroyline?
5.What did you do at LEGO before BIONICLE came around?
6.Do you ever get tired of answering questions from random BIONICLE nuts around the world?


1) Not particularly, no, I have no big plans for her right now.
2) Because it's about more than just fulfilling your destiny -- you also have to choose to give up your Toa power. So answer me this -- does the universe need five Toa more now, or five Turaga?
3) Same reason many people in our world's governments keep secrets -- because they think it is what they are supposed to do, that the people can't handle knowing the truth.
4) I plan to keep that under wraps for as long as I possibly can, since it would give away the end of 2008.
5) I was only at LEGO for a few months before BIONICLE launched, and I did the same thing I do now - write and edit LEGO Magazine. That's my main job.
6) If I did, I simply wouldn't come here.


1:Oh, well. Krakha was kinda dumb anyway.
2:Hmmm...perhaps he has more plans for them...
3:Well, Jaller sure handled it well. He became a Toa .
4:I CAN'T WAIT THAT LONG . . . . . . . . . .
5:Ahhh.
6:Good thing he isn't .

Actually that is incorrect. I took the time to look up an old PM of mine:

3- Could a makuta create or control plants, gravity or magnetism?

3) No



Hey Greg. Those are Rahkshi powers, so can you elaborate? Thanks .



You are correct on gravity and magnetism -- however, the Rahkshi power for plant is plant control, not plant creation. So a Makuta can control existing plants, he cannot create new ones.


So obviously, Makuta can control the 5 Kal elements.
#1417
But he didn't say that it's elemental control. :P
#1418
Hi Mr.Farshtey just some questions

Dear Greg, I have some questions,

1. Will it be revealed later who takes over Botar's job?
2. Can the Makuta still be hurt by a flare of light if they are blind?
3. Will we learn more about Tren Krom?
4. Is Takanuva capable of using a shadow hand?
5. Does Tren Krom always stay on his island?
6. If Trinuma left the weapons on Tren Krom's beach, why didn't Krom grab him?
7. What would happen if a midak sphere hit lewa?
7a. Would he get hurt?
8. If Dweller and Ancient get to Mata Nui, would they have to fight the Kardas Dragon?
9. Does the OoMN know that Dweller is in the Archives?
10. Does Takanuva have any control over how hot his lasers are or not?
11. Can Takanuva change someone else's colors?
12. When will we find out how takanuva grows?
13. Are there any more disguised Av-matoran in Metru Nui other than the canister builder?
14. If a Nuva loses his midak, does he have to find it again or else have not weapon whenever he transforms?
Thanks .


1) Doubt it, not relevant to the story right now
2) No, you can't affect the vision of someone who's blind
3) Yes

6) Krom has no need of them
7) Well, light is energy, so probably
8) KD's not there

10) Yes
11) No
12) When it actually happens
13) No
14) He won't have a weapon then
#1420
Can Tren Krom be classified as evil? I mean, he didn't intentionally give Mutran that information.

If Takanuva had part of his light drained, wouldn't that mean that he would experience a rise in some darker emotions?

I suppose that's all. keep up the good work.


1) I don't see him as evil, personally, I see him as primal.
2) Yes
#1421
Takanuva Toa of Twilight
8. If Dweller and Ancient get to Mata Nui, would they have to fight the Kardas Dragon?

8) KD's not there


interesting, the nice devastating monster has traveled to new lands, wonder where that is. hmm.
#1422
About the whole 'Red Star' thing... Maybe the Nynrah ghosts are residing in it?
#1423
I personally doubt that. The Nynrah Ghosts are craftsmen who are known to be stealthy... But no one knows about what's in the Red Star at all. :P

Besides, I don't see how they would deliver the weapons, or why they would give the weapons to the Makuta. :P
#1424
Takanuva Toa of Twilight
4. Is Takanuva capable of using a shadow hand?

And Taka can do a shadow hand? More interesting...

For the people who want to know why takanuva is titan sized, it's about 10 pages back, but...
He's bigger then the other toa because of the fact that Av-matoran are generally larger then regular matoran (I dont get it either...)
And a while ago Greg comfirmed that, everytime Taka uses his shadow powers, it takes him one step closer to the "Dark side". :)
Sorry I couldn't get any quotes. :(

Hey Greg. Those are Rahkshi powers, so can you elaborate? Thanks .



You are correct on gravity and magnetism -- however, the Rahkshi power for plant is plant control, not plant creation. So a Makuta can control existing plants, he cannot create new ones.


So obviously, Makuta can control the 5 Kal elements.


No, Makuta can only control plants because the power is plant control the other powers aren't sonic control, magnetism control etc just Sonics, Magnetism so on, so on

I'm sure he did, but due to Karda Nui's energy the Av Matoran, who are naturally larger due to being prototypes, grow in size and since Taka wasn't there long he didn't grow. Now as he returns and spending time there his size will increase.

i think the whole makuta elements this is like this:
For sonics and magnetism, a makuta could release pulses etc, just not control them or absorb them.
For plant control, he wouldn't be able to create or absorb plants life, just manipulate it.

Hi, Greg .



I've got some questions for you,based on a Theory that SPIRIT did a while ago. I'm building off it, sooooooo.......



1. How do Toa stones work? Do they somehow"energize" The Matoran's Mask, body, power "photons", etc.?
2. When Takua put the Mask of Light on, he turned into a Toa. Is there a mask that could change that?(Like, say, the Mask of Shadows?)
3. How are Matoran prevented from becoming Toa?


Thanks,
.T.T.


1) Think of it this way. You have, let's say, a big machine that has all sorts of cool functions and power built into it. But to get it to work, you need just a little spark from some outside source, just to get it started. Sort of the way a spark plug helps start a car. That is what Toa stones are -- they are a spark that triggers the Toa power that is already inside that Matoran.
2) You mean turn him back into a Matoran? Yes, the Mask of Life could devolve him into what he once was.
3) Only certain Matoran are destined to become Toa. Those that are have Toa power already inside them, waiting for the proper time and the proper "spark" to be unleashed. If you aren't destined to be a Toa, then you have no such power and nothing can make you a Toa.



THANK YOU GREG .

My theory's gonna work . :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

THANK YOU GREG .



So the Ignika can turn Toa back into Matoran :blink:
That could mean something

Just some stuff.

Hello Greg, Just read the new MC story, and it was interesting. But i have a few questions about TK now.

1) TK has telepathy powers correct, seeing as how he plunged into Mutran mind.

2) TK is stronger then the Makuta by far, but how much weaker is he then Mata Nui. like if a Makuta was a 1 in power, Mata Nui would be like a 10, where would TK fit in there?

3) What is one of the most asked questions you get from members here?

4) Would you say TK was an experiment by the Great Beings as to what kind of creatures to put in there new universe?

5) Is TK older then the first matoran, or younger?

6) Will we learn what kind of powers TK has because it seems silly to me for him to be close to Mata Nui in power, but it being brute strength.

Thank you, Zerack



1) Yes
2) Are you talking sheer power or physical power?
3) Are you asking in relation to TK? Sorry, not going to spoil future story
4) No, I would not
5) Younger. Matoran was the first thing the GBs created for this universe.
6) He's not close to Mata Nui in brute strength.

For the people who want to know why takanuva is titan sized, it's about 10 pages back, but...He's bigger then the other toa because of the fact that Av-matoran are generally larger then regular matoran (I dont get it either...)And a while ago Greg comfirmed that, everytime Taka uses his shadow powers, it takes him one step closer to the "Dark side". :)Sorry I couldn't get any quotes. :(
how wrong cant ya get?taks is getting big in dark mirrior of those kiddys books he is normal sized at the mo he always has been hes hasnt been in the core as long as tanma and co.
Actually Greg said the size had something to do with Karda Nui's energy.~iVahi
did you even read my post...?


I'm saying that you are wrong, he will get big after dark mirror, and not in the kiddy-books, because GregF said nothing terribly important happens in them.

And they happen before DM if I'm not mistaken.

4)If not those, what masks do they wear? :huh:

They where as yet to be detrmend masks. Greg told me that he did not want to give the mask names or powers that if they get used again he is not restricted to what they were for the shadow Matoran, the same was said about the Av-Matoran too. I lost the quote and I not sure if I posted it before the OGD got cleaned up.
