Chat with Greg Farshtey

You said that the Agori with Lewa are from a jungle/plant tribe, is this THE jungle tribe or a sort of Bota Magna branch?

2. A user on BZP had an interesting theory.

"Well, I guess I can't argue with Greg. I can still try to salvage the UDD symbol, though. What if that symbol wasn't supposed to represent the orbital path of Bota Magna and Aqua Magna around Bara Magna -- what if it was meant to represent the three shards arriving at a point of alignment -- the optimal point of alignment for Mata Nui to reform them and complete his mission?
 
That... actually makes the UDD symbol even cooler, in my opinion. It wasn't just a reminder of "hey, these are the shards you need to fix sometime", it was a diagram of "the clock is ticking; they'll be aligned like this just once in the next 100,000 years, don't forget". It lends the symbol a great deal of urgency and gravitas.
 
Alright. I can work with that. "

3. Is Reysa revived?

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.

 

 

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

 

I wanted to know this too.

Quote from Brothers in Arms:

 

'"I want to learn how to fight," said Mazeka, his tone grim.  "I want to know how to win clean ... and win dirty.  When I'm done, I want to be a master with a blade, with my fists, with any kind of weapon - and then I want you to get out of my way."'

 

So perhaps not martial arts, but special fighting techniques?  Definitely.

Sounds cool.

WHY DID BIONICLE END!!!!!!!AngryCryingEmbarrassed

 

I think bionicle WAS AWESOMMMMMMEEEEE

 

 

Please tell me thr umors are true that bionicle will return in 2015 Confused

We have already explained to a number of people that if Greg answered a question like this he would most likely lose his job.  Please refrain from asking such questions.

Sorry, I meant the last part, about 2015, not about Bionicle ending.

1) Can Tahu ever revert to his Mistika form?

2) Can the Golden Armor be used by any Toa Mata if they turn into their Mata form?

Another question/s, this one pertaining to one of of my all-time favourite characters: 

 

Will Sahmad really join up with the Golden Being's army, or continue doing his own thing? Or is it possible the Agori might be willingto accept him and his kind into their society this time around? Even if they were to accept him, how likely is it that he will forgive them? 

Also,

Is there a such thing as fitness in the BIONICLE world

3) He just does.

4) That was  not my intent, no

5) Because the books have to promote sets

6) I always thought of them as organic, but again, I am not on the story team so I can't speak for them

7-8) No idea

9) Yes

10) Because I wanted them to be different to add to the strangeness of the universe

11) No idea

12) For now

13) Cause I thought I might use it again

14) I thought that was clear in the book - it was orignally intended as a weapon of assasination

15) On a planet

16) Bulk was the most fun to write

17) Not really, no

18) I don't know that I had a favorite - I only did five and they were all pretty fun to write

3: Okay.

4: Okay.

5: Got it.

6: I consider them techno organic myself.

9: Good.

10: Makes sence.

12: So he might come back? Awesome!

13: Too bad the series is over.Sad

14: Oh. Must've missed that part.

15: LOL.

16: I liked Bulk too. But my favorite is, wait, that's obvious.

 

I've got a few more questions.

 

1: If the series had continued, what would've happened?

2: Can you reveal who Karter was working for?

3: If the Doom Box was to be used for asassination, then why was it made powerful enough to destroy the galaxy?

4: How come only Core Hunter could shut it down if he was made 4,000 years aftter its creation?

5: Were the brains really "evil"? I mean, I understand that they were trying to destroy Hero Factory, but they did make sence, seeing as what happens when the villains thought for themselves. OH NO! I'm turning into a brain!Joking

6: Just how strong was "Sunstorm"?

 


ANSWERS:

1) Unknown

2) That would be up to the HF story team to decide

3) See answer to #2

4) I doubt it was an obsession with Hero Cores. More likely, it was just greed. Not every robot is into spending its life in service to others for little or no reward.

5) Don't know

6) Don't know

7-8) In some cases, I had to make stuff up because there wasn't enough published content to refer to.

9) Can you give me the quote?

4: Ahh.

9: Sorry, I didn't read it in the book. It was somewhere else.

6: Just how strong was "Sunstorm"?

 

1) I don't do outlines, so I have no info to share

2) Well, we know there was a conspiracy, and my feeling it was some planetary governments and some mega-corporations involved

3) It wasn't intended to be that powerful

4) It was Core Hunter's tool that could absorb DB's energies, but the tool was not designed to do that. In science, in a lot of cases, something gets developed that works with something that has existed for a long time

5) Depends. If they were the equivalent of animals/creatures, then they would not have a moral sense and could not be good or evil.

6) Incredibly powerful. A direct hit by a solar flare can do a lot of damage

Not that I recall

I think Sahmad will keep doing his own thing

1) He would need the Ignika for that

2) Theoretically

Alright. I can work with that. "

3. Is Reysa revived?

1) It is the jungle tribe

2) I hesitate to comment on this, simply because everything to do with the UDD symbol came from the story team as a whole, not just me.

3) Reysa died outside of the MU, so would not have gone to the red star

Boidoh wrote:Hello Greg.
The recent moon stuff has caused immense backlash in the community. They have said that many canon sources such as the Mata Nui Saga, Journey's End and BIONICLEstory.com described them as moons. Could it be simply poetic license, like how Venus is called the Morning Star?

Unfortunately, expecting me to remember everything that was written more than four years ago us not realistic. If you ask questions, I am going to give the best answers I can based on today, because I don't have time to go back and reread all the old material. Folks are certainly free to keep that in mind.
