Can anyone use a Rahkshi staff, or just Rahkshi? How about a Makuta? Could they use the staff?

It's a good question. I think it comes down to how the staff works -- is the power  in the staff, or is just being focused through it, the way Toa powers are through their tools? Based on what we have done elsewhere, one would think it is being focused through it, meaning it would have no power if not being used by a Rahkshi.

Could a Rahkshi perhaps chanel their power through a Toa tool?

well then... why LEGO dont do some approvals to more bionicle books, i mean... yeah we understand that LEGO will not bring bionicle sets again, but at least they can aprove some new books and more story... i dont know like videogames books, they can make this and well they can continue with HF, ninjago and chima

 A publisher much prefers to do books based on active toy lines, because the toys on the shelf are basically free advertising for the books. You also have to remember that books exist to promote set sales, and if there are no sets to be sold, it doesn't make sense for LEGO Company to put resources toward getting books on the market.

Hi Greg! I just have a few questions to ask because I'm a really big fan of Bionicle and I just want to know about some stuff.

 

1.How were the Great Beings created in the Bionicle Universe?

 

2.Did Spherus Magna actually separate into different planets?

 

3.Where did the Toa Mata come from?

 

4.Who created Protodermis?

 

Thanks for your time Greg! Happy

Hi Greg, I noticed that Turaga Dume is in his movie form in some of your comics, instead of his normal set form. Could you explain why? I mean, it looks pretty weird, he was the only one with realistic hands... Confused

Most likely because that is how the artist was told to draw it, or because movie images were the only reference he had for the character.

In Dark Mirror World, how did Furno from the alt universe recognize the other Furno when the Furno from the main universe had the armor upgrade that changed his appearence?

In similar circumstances, do you think you wouldn't be able to recognize yourself? His voice would be the same, his body language would be the same ...

Excuse me Mr. Farshtey, but what do you do when you get writer's block? Or when you feel all the good ideas are already taken?

I generally stop writing and go do something else, like build a model or go shopping or do something that isn't writing to give that part of my brain a rest.

1) If I could vaguely recall, there was something like 25 names that were available to you for the serials. Since only a few names were introduced in the serials, what happened to the rest?
2) What was Dume's relationship like with the other Turaga?
3) Did Fa-Matoran (Magnetism) have an elemental trait?
Thank you

1) Most of the names left on the list pretty much stunk, which is why they hadn't been used  yet. And there was no reason to hold onto the list, since BIONICLE was cancelled.

2) Which other Turaga?

 

3) i am sure they did, but it was never determined what it was

Good question. Not sure. Would have to think about  it.
