How is it that in Journey's End, Tahu and Takanuva were able to communicate with Gresh. Don't they speak different languages?

Mata Nui made it possible for MU and SM inhabitants present at the battle to  understand each other.

I don't know if this has been asked yet but I may aswell ask.

A couple of years ago during Hero Factory breakout romours were running around that series 5 would be rampant oceans however we got brain attack instead. Some believe LEGO may have changed their mind. So my question is was rampant oceans going to be an HF theme or was it just a hoax?

 

I never heard anything about that, and frankly, if it was being rumored online it was probably fake. People involved in developing new concepts/products for LEGO do not leak information to the public, because they would lose their jobs.

I think this was missed

 

1) Yes

2-4) No. Eliminator's blasts are lightning-like in nature and while metallic parts would survive, any AI would be fried beyond the ability to retrieve for download.

 

  1. I was in error when I said that Naho and all the Toa Mangai had been killed by Eliminator. We only know that Kodan and two Toa Mangai who were accompanying him were killed by Eliminator; the others may have been killed by either Eliminator, Nidhiki, or Krekka. How many were killed by Eliminator in this way?
  2. Eliminator's attacks fried the AI of the beings he killed, but their bodies were left mostly intact. Does this mean their bodies were transported to the Red Star and fixed, but without minds? Does that mean their bodies are roaming the Red Star without minds, or do they simply not function?

1) All of them

2) No. They don't bring a body back without a mind. The odds are the red star's systems would have detected that the brains got fried, and never bothered to teleport them up to start with.

Hey Greg, I hope you don't mind if I ask some specifics about the capabilities of a Toa. I'm doing this so we can get an accurate sense of their traits and capabilities.

 

1) Can the average Toa lift more than 1 Ton?

 

2) Do Toa possess superhuman reflexes?

 

3) Are their senses (namely vision and hearing) superhuman as well?

 

4) Without using any mask powers, can the average Toa easily outpace a human in a foot race?

 

5) Are there slight height variations among Toa?

 

6) Do martial arts exist in the MU, and if so, is it possible that some Toa are martial artists?

 

7) Without their armor on, do Toa resemble the original Mata prototypes?

 

8) Do Toa control their elements psychically (e.g. Tahu creates a fire whirlwind by thinking it in his mind, channeling his EP through his sword) or physically (e.g. Tahu creates a fire whirlwind by twirling his sword around in a whirlwind motion while channeling EP through it).

 

 

Also, I have two unrelated questions that I hope you don't mind answering:

9) Are the mechanical pistons in MU inhabitants pneumatic or hydraulic

 

10) Also, have you decided what MU brains are made of yet?

Hello,Greg.I am for the first time here.

I like the LEGO NINJAGO series very much.As some other fans of this series, I decided that there are not enough pretty girls here,  so I invented a few new personages.

Tell me please, what is the best way to tell you about them?

Thank you.Waiting for your replay

I'm not writing any new BIONICLE stories at this point, Boidoh.

What I meant was that you could maybe give us just a statement on it. The information and writing is already there on MLN. All I am asking is to make a little scenario. You've done similar on LMB in the past, such as saying stuff like the Fikou are currently looking to find an area similar to that of which they have adapted to, but many have died in the process or Lehvak-Kal is orbiting SM but his orbit will eventually decay and he will burn up. I'm asking for something similar to that, but concerning Whenua's appearance in MLN. It could be as simple as delivering a statement saying that for unkown reasons, the hero agori met with Whenua, and leave it at that.

Hey Greg!
Ive had a small arguement about the Great Beings just now. I thought I would ask you to solve the dispute.

 

What we were discussing is their origin. Were they glatorian that were just different and eventually became powerful due to feeding on other minds? Or were they a new species entirely, that arrived on Spherus magna later?

 

My friend later stated that, without Annona, they probably wouldnt be genious enough to create something as great as Mata Nui. Is this true?

1) The GBs are neither. They are natives of SM, but not of the same species as the Glatorian and Agori. They are scientists, they did not feed off anyone's mind to get their intellect.

 

2) No, it's not

2. Understandable.
3. Alright.
4. If you were to RP in bionicle how would you do it?

4) Not entirely sure what you're asking? I don't really RP, but I would be happy to answer you if you can explain a little more of what you want to know.

I know you're being flooded with millions of questions from desperate fans at the moment but I have some undying questions...

 

1. How come the Kestora are complete idiots with no regard to life? Wasn't it their job to preserve the lives of those the red star revived? Also do beings get revived once again after they are dissected by said idiotic Kestora?

 

2. Are toa/matoran/other races in the matoran universe naturally intelligent or artificially intelligent? I always thought they were truly living beings but since Mata Nui himself is a giant robot I'm having my doubts.

 

3. Do you have any Bionicle characters that you explicitly do not find interesting/just don't like to write about? If so why?

 

 

1) I don't see them as idiots - I see them as what the Matoran were before the Awakening -- dedicated to doing their job to the exclusion of all else. And no, their job was not to preserve lives, it was to send those revived back to the MU. Now they can't do that and they are trying find out why. As for being revived again, would depend on whether or not the head is involved.

 

2) We have never stated if they have organic brains or computerized brains, but the fact that their consciousness can be downloaded into a new body speaks to either having fantastic tech or them having AI.

 

3) Writing characters who had no personalities, like the Vahki, was always the most difficult.

 4. Can a guurahk disintegrate living beings/artificially intelligent beings? The staff of disintegration works by pinpointing weaknesses then exploiting them... Does that mean a guurahk can disintigrate a being's armor or worse?

 

5. Would it theoretically be possible to rescue beings from the red star and bring them to spherus magna?

 

6. What do you think Miserix would be/is doing on Spherus Magna now that Teridax is (presumed) dead?

 

7. Finally, is it possible in the Bionicle canon to force a great being like Vellika out of the body they were possessing?


4) Yes

5) Yes. Build a rocket, get into the satellite, and ferry them out.

6) Making sure he survives. Either finding a way to make himself useful or taking off so he doesn't get noticed.

7) I would say yes.

1. Can Vezon open a portal to escape the fortress he's in now if he wanted to? Or is the mask power in him still "switched off" by the insane GB?

 

2. Would it be possible for a Toa to fuse with a mask in EP the same way Vezon fused with the Olmak? If so, could they access that mask's power?

 

3. If a Toa that fused with a mask wore another mask, would they be able to access the power of that mask? Or would they have problems? (I'm talking about using either the mask power of the mask on their face or the one they were fused with independently, not at once). 

1) It's still switched off.

2) Yes and yes

3) No, they would not, because they would not be wearing Mask A, so putting on Mask B would not be a problem. I would just say they couldn't use both powers at once.

Hello Mr. Farshtey, Im back, because some more questions appeared in my brain. Joking

 

Now, these may not be able to be answered, as they involve subjects taking place after the reunification. 

 

Pridak and the other Barraki (Well, the ones that were alive and still more or less loyal to Pridak) are still alive, healed by the Ignika, and are in possession of armies. Will they (or would they) attempt a new League of Six Kingdoms? 

 

The Shadowed One is also alive, and apparently in possession of the Skrall and Bone Hunter remnants. Im assuming he will try and recreate the Dark Hunters? Or make a bid for power? 

 

And the Order of Mata Nui was more or less destroyed, with most of their members dead and their leader missing. Are they still trying to continue OMN "behind the scenes" tactics, or are they simply trying to adapt to life among the Matoran and the Agori?

 

Now, this is probably sensitive, but the Golden Skinned Being made it sound as if he were going to assemble an empire of sorts, drawing members from all species. (Sahmad's statement of "I might join you" leads me to that conclusion.) What exactly is his goal?

 

And finally, the Visorak and the Bohrok. The Visorak now have no leader, so what will they do, or who will they fight for? And the Bohrok are now obsolete. Will they stay dormant, or will they return to the GBs for some new task? 

 

And if you can't answer any of these questions, I understand completely. I was just curious, since the ending of the story happened at one of the most tense moments in the story. Joking

1) Possible

2) He may have moved beyond the DH. He may be thinking bigger.

3) I doubt they will try to just be a part of the society

4) He thrives on the dreams of others. So his goal is whatever encourages those dreams.

5) The Bohrok will probably be reprogrammed to be useful, and the Visorak will be pests.

2) I would say no. They have to train for that sort of thing. Look at the Metru, they were always slamming into things when they first became Toa.

3) Well, we know their eyes and ears are not organic, so they are more on the level of a machine.

4) Unknown

5) Not that I have seen

6) Yes and yes

7) I don't think so, no

8) It requires mental activation. The tool does not control the shape of the power

9) Don't know

10) Well, as I said earlier, if they are organic then the MU has to have a fantastic tech level to be able to download consciousness ... if they are AI, the red star is easier to accept

Hi Greg! 

 

Thanks for last answers. I have some new. I hope you'll find time to answer me  Smile

1)Are all Great Beings on the same power level? Are they have the same powers?

2) Is Great Being able to escape from protodermis cage (protodermis made by six Toa)?

3) Matorans on Mata Nui in 2001 were very small. It is side effect of Niki, I know. Then they rebuild to bigger forms. But are matorans in other lands (e.g. South Continent, Nynrah, etc.) big like Av-matorans? They weren't in Niki, were they?

4) In 2001 and 2003 we met some matorans with masks of power. These Kanohi were of 12 kinds (great masks of Toa and noble of Turaga). Is any matoran has another mask? They hadn't another masks, because we weren't know another or any matoran indeed hadn't?

 

Greetings from Mazovia,

Filipos38

1) Great Beings do not, in general, have powers. They are scientists. They have tech.

2) No

 

3) Correct

 

4) Matoran in different places might well have been wearing different masks. We saw this in 2008.

What happened to Tahu's Hau? You know, the one he wore before he put on the Golden Hau, the one from the Golden Armour.

 

 

Why was it that when Tahu transformed back into Mata, his Hau didn't transform into a golden Kanohi? Wasn't it the Golden Kanohi that transformed into the Nuva masks, or was it because the Kanohi Nuva that he wore was the adaptive form given to him by Artakha?

1) Probably put it someplace for safekeeping.

2) The latter -- also, if he turned into a Mata and wore a golden mask and then put on another golden mask, it would get really confusing.
