1) I generally don't do detailed descriptions of places.

2) They were always there

 

3) Can't answer it

 

4) Since Antroz is dead, I assume it was abandoned.

5) It will eventually make its way to Spherus Magna

6) Well, if the robot is taken apart, they will then be on Spherus Magna.

7) Possible, but I think unlikely

8) Would be kind of a useless power otherwise, wouldn't it?

9) No

11) DH are not one species, they are a number of different beings from different places, so you cannot really compare DH as a group to Toa

 Also, you wrote:

>8) What island? The island of Mata Nui is the robot's face, why would Makuta want to destroy it? Same as your second question - the kraata have no reason to destroy the MU. Makuta wanted to rule the MU, not destroy it.

8.1. Can Makuta using any of his abilities destroy an island (any island) like Nocturn?

8.2. Okay, not destroy MU, rule it. With these powers Kraata/Rahkshi actually can achieve anything Makuta wants and it's doubtful that anyone could stop them, even OMN.

 

>5) I don't understand your question

5.1. I mean the planets from the beginning of The Legend Reborn. Are they canon?


 

8.1) I suppose, though not in the same way Nocturn did

8.2) Except that kraata obey orders. They don't have personal ambitions. They serve the Makuta. It would be like saying that the guard dogs at a prison might take the prison over someday. No, they won't. They're trained pets.

 

5.1 Yes, I assume so, but  no information exists on them.

I was wondering, For MOC purposes, Since Vezon absorbed the Olmak, does it change his appearance anyhow? As far as I heared it didnt Fuse to part of his body or anything, it was simply absorbed, But I just wanted to be sure.

No

How Teridax was more powerful than the other Makuta. It had better mastery of its powers, a more raw force than the other or it had more power than the other Makuta.

Had more to do with intelligence and experience than with more actual power.

but on BS01 he is described as the most powerful of makuta.

Knowledge is power. Take two people with the same power, make one more intelligent and experienced, and who will use the power better?

If the toa Nuva become turaga, would they have noble kanohi nuva or would it turn into an ordinary noble kanohi? And how would the noble kanohi nuva differ from an ordianry noble kanohi, or would it be the same?

Sorry if this questions already been answered, I dont have the attention span to read 440 pages of Questions and Answers.Joking

Yes, and the mask powers would be able to be shared, as with other Kanohi Nuva

Hey Greg:

 

1) How is it known when a Matoran is destined to become a Toa? Would the local Turaga recieve a vision about the Matoran, signaling that he/she has dormant Toa power? 

 

2) Is it safe to say that Toa have superhuman durability?

 

3) We know that Organic protodermis can regenerate rapidly, as shown by how the Toa Mata's organic components instantly regrew after they reassembled themselves. My question is, does this rapid regenration also apply to battle injuries (e.g. cuts, bruises) as well?

1) It's not known. Nobody on the island of Mata Nui knew Jaller and his team were destined to be Toa. Within Metru Nui, it was possible to read it in the stars if you knew how, but almost no one did.

2) They are mostly mechanical, so yes

3) Not that we have seen.

Hi Greg,

 

If you didn't know if the Bionicle 2015 rumors are true or not, would the colored display leak convince you?

 

Could you please answer this? Thank you!


Rocka - As I have stated here before, I am not allowed to discuss anything having to do with rumors about BIONICLE , or any other product line that might or might not be coming in the future. That is not what this topic is about. Any product news will come as announcements from LEGO Company, not from posts here. This is not the place to look for that sort of news.

kyle7475 wrote:

1) Could you draw an estimation based on the fact that all Toa are about 7 feet tall and 90% mechanical? It seems reasonable to me that they would weight around half a ton.

 

4) Does organic protodermis have DNA, then?

 

Sorry if it seems like I'm trying to complicate things.


1) No, I can't. Not my area of expertise.

4) I suppose, but I really haven't thought about it.

Hello, Greg!

Who's your favorite Ninjago Character?

What happened to the Stone Army?

What gave you the idea to make Ninjago?

What happened to Sensei Dareth?

I have a few questions about Velika's agents on Bara and Bota Magna, if you don't mind.

 

  1. Was Kabrua one of Velika's contacts on Bota Magna?
  2. In order to keep him updated on events, Velika's contacts would need some way to communicate with him. Did Velika supply them with communication devices, or did he have some sort of telepathic ability?

More to come. Thank you for your time.

1) Yes

2) It was done using tech

1) Hey Greg, I believe you stated earlier that MU beings didn't need to drink water to survive; instead relying completely on the energy they absorb from their food. However, BS01 lists the Adaptive Armor's desert form as having a "hydration pack." Should that be considered non-canon, or do you think that MU inhabitants would need to drink water?   

 

2) Is the number of Toa going to regrow now that, for the most part, Spherus Magna is relatively peaceful and stable? 

 

3) This might sound like a strange question, but is the genetic makeup of a Matoran's organic components dependent on his/her element? For example, Onu- and Po-matoran would have genes in their muscles coding for increased strength, Ta- and Su- matoran would have genes coding for increased heat resistance, etc.

BS01 is not infallible. Maybe someone should go edit it to clarify what Greg said.

OK...I have a really long question that will boggle your brain for a bit, and it's a hypothetical sinario, so be prepared for insanity.

 

So, OK, there's the Mask of Fusion, right? So, what happens when you make a Mask of Fusion NUVA(Hypothetically)? If I recall, Nuva masks are more powerful in their abilities AND can allow people to share the ablities of the mask. So, say, instead of just fusing with one person with the Mask of Fusion Nuva (I'll call it the MoFN for short), you can fuse with two.

Now then, the BIONICLE series has shown examples of six people sharing the power of a Kanohi Nuva, albeit standing close to each other. So, get three teams of toa, have 6 Toa (One wearing the MoFN) stand in a circle, and then...BAM! Suddenly, all the Toa are fused. It makes sense. If each Toa in range of the MoFN fuses with two toa AND they use the power to fuse with themselves, they can make some sort of giant Toa combo. And you also have the KANOHI, which are now all fused together, and still have the powers fo the MoFN! So, you could, hypothetically, do the same thing with three MORE teams of Toa (albeit the giant Toa combo has to be in the center of the 6-toa circle)! And so on and so forth. And combine that with the Toa that are wearing a NORMAL Mask of Fusion, and the fusing becomes even more powerful!

So, here's my question: if a Mask of Fusion Nuva existed, hypothetically, do you think all the Toa could fuse into one being?

While your theory makes sense, I would say that we would find some way in story to say it couldn't happen, because a) there is no logical stopping place under the theory  you are suggesting and b) you would run the risk of creating a Toa so powerful that he would unbalance the story

Also, there are only 50 or less Toa left.

Why Greg have ignored my questions?

You have 14 questions, and that would take a long time to answer, which Greg may not have available. Try breaking it down into sections of 3-4 questions, and post them over a period of about a week, so Greg can manage them better. I did that with a long list of questions Greg did not answer, and it worked.

If you can't answer all my questions at once, just do them a few at a time.

1) When Bota and Aqua magna returned to Bara Magna, were beings crushed between them?

2) If someone dies while using the Iden, will they respawn without a spirit, respawn with a copy of their spirit, or have their spirit transported to the RS?

3) If the Great Beings thought the Toa could turn bad and were powerful enough to install a safegaurd, why didn't they install a safegaurd for the Makuta, who were much more powerful and had less programmed goodwill and compassion?

4) After Lehvak-Kal's vaccum powers blasted him into space, did he burn up, float away from Solis Magna, or land on Spherus Magna?

 

Thanks for doing this, and thanks for the awesomeness of Bionicle!
