Chat with Greg Farshtey

Wow big fan! and i'm exited!

 

well my one and only question is :

'How did you come up with the ninjago range and tv series?'

 

thanks for reading!

Considering plasma is far hotter than fire, and that matoran/toa/turaga of a given element have resistence to their element, wouldn't matoran of plasma have super-high heat resistance? BS01 only says that their eyes can withstand very bright light... wouldn't that be an Av-matoran ability? And not a Su-matoran ability, since plamsa's defining characteristic is heat, not light?

Mr. Farshtey,

 

1. why are the Dark Hunters called the Dark Hunters?

 

 2. Aren't they basiclly just bounty hunters?

 

3. who would become leader if the Shadowed One was ever killed?

 

4. why is he called the Shadowed One?

Mr Farshtey,

Could a Toa of Shadows potentially use their abilites for good?

Possibly.

So for the sake of accuracy on BS01, should we say, on the various matoran pages, that  "Almost all (element)-matoran are (gender)"?

 

Or perhaps you could specify which elements, if not all, have some/an exception(s) to the rule? Happy

 

Cuz it would make sense that the great beings experimented a bit with each element... if they made the decision that "all Ko-matoran from here on out are male", something must have happened with a female Ko-matoran to make them do that? (and likewise for the other elements...like a few male ga- and vo-matoran?)

Concerning the unreleased "BIONICLE: The Legend of Mata Nui" video game. I was wondering... why was it cancelled?Thinking

Well, I've got few questions:

 

1) Did you really want to put dinosaurs at the end of 5th BIONICLE movie, or maybe this is just a joke?

2) What influence can Makuta's viruses  have on a living person?

3) If BIONICLE get back, would you start writing all new stories?

4) If someone wearing the Mask of Undeath dies and then he cames back from death, he can complete his last objective. And then what? He dies again? And what if this objective is already completed by someone else (for example defeating some EVIL guy)? Can the "undead" still live and do other things? What if someone will harm or injure, or even kill the "undead"? Can he regenerate himself or use mask again to resurrect? Also, can undead talk or eat (take energy) or feel emotions?

 

Okay, maybe more than few auestions.

1) No, I really did think bio-mechanical dinosaurs would be cool and would fit with where we were idly chatting about taking the story.

2) You mean like a Glatorian? Probably none, they are the equivalent of computer viruses.

 

3) No idea. That would be up to LEGO and the book publishers. I can only do it if they ask me to.

 

4) Do you remember the mask name for that? I need to look it up to refresh my memory of what it can and cannot do.

 

 

1) I was talking about viruses used by Makuta to create Rahi (or maybe the one used by Spirah to "improve" Skakdi). How would these viruses affect a Toa?

2) Biosector01, article: Others Kanohi. There is Mask of Undeath. Now can you answer my previous questions?

3)How did Velika steal Lesovikk's sword (latet, he killed Karzahni with it)? I know he's a Great Being, but I'm still curiours.

4) Could you at least tell us, how BIONICLE stories would end? Velika would be stopped? Toa Mahri would be saved?

5) I think that this question was asked before, but: Do beings from Matoran Universe have blood? And do they have heart or maybe just some "pump". 

6) I know this one is weard:  Is there tar in Matoran Universe?

When the 2008 Shadow Matoran were Av-Matoran did they wear the nobal Kanohi of the Toa Nuva like Solek, Photok, and Tanma?

But computer viruses don't come in a powdered form that can be blown into someone's face, inhaled, and give them flight powers. Or physically dissolve armor. I'm thinking that the reason they don't work on the glatorian is the same reason humans can't get sick from most animals viruses: they aren't adapted to infect us.

 

Furthermore, on that topic...

1. I've always thought of the makuta as masters of all kinds of viruses... regular, computer viruses, etc. Obviously the virus that brought down the mata nui robot was some kind of "computer virus", given that the robot is totally mechanical, but most other viruses that they made were just "regular viruses". Along with what i said above, a computer virus isn't something that can be physically exposed to liquid protodermis and become an animal (rahi).

2. In that respect, couldn't the makuta design a virus capable of infecting beings with a higher organic composure (like glatorian or agori)?

3. and another question: BS01 says that the makuta made rahi by submerging viruses in liquid protodermis... but several times in the story, makuta were shown to use energized protodermis (such as making rahkshi). and considering liquid protodermis is basically just water, wouldn't the makuta have had to use energized, not liquid, protodermis to make rahi?

In our universe, they don't. But we are not in our universe.

 

1) See answer above.

2) Why bother? There were very few beings like this in the MU and the Makuta are gone now.

3) But energized would just as often destroy the viruses, if not more often.

Bumping this set of questions for a friend who kindly asked. 

 

Questions about a certain Toa of Plasma's status.

  1. In Island of Doom, Avak recalls a Toa of Plasma who had a one-on-one session with Zaktan. When they were done, all that was left was half a mask, some armor shreds, and a puddle of liquid. This might sound silly, but for confirmation purposes, did Zaktan kill the Toa of Plasma?
  2. It seems implied that Zaktan let his protodites eat the Toa. Am I correct in assuming this?
  3. Was this Toa revived on the Red Star?

Moving on to the next subject: Great Beings.

  1. In Brothers in Arms, six Great Beings hold council with Mazeka and Vultraz. Might Velika have been one of these Great Beings?
  2. Since the Great Beings of that universe never created the Ignika, might the cursed Great Being have been among the councilpersons?

One last question.

  1. When Teridax recreated the Visorak horde, did he recreate them exactly as they were, or did he add a few touches of his own?
  2. Did he recreate the seven breeds we know of, or pick and choose a few specific ones, or even do away with breeds altogether and just have one type of Visorak?
  3. If he did add his own touches, what sorts of changes do you think he would make to the Visorak?

1) I purposely kept this vague. But if he is dead, no, he wouldn't be revived because there was no body to teleport.

1-2) Yes and yes

 

1) Exactly as they were

I didn't. I had nothing to do with the creation of Ninjago.

Really not something I have thought about.

1, 4) Because the names are cool

2) Sometimes, but sometimes they are striking for their own interests and not because someone is paying them

3) Don't know offhand
