Question Nerd should I spend less of my time trying to convince you that you hinted at love in the mu in you're own books and more time trying to find a new question Eye roll

Well, considering I answered the question on whether or not there is romantic love in the MU pretty definitively a long time ago, there is really no point in my discussing it further. There were certainly references that could be interpreted that way in the films, and the books had to live within the movie universe. But this question has been asked and answered.

Hey greg. I have a few questions. Could a Vortixx, by himself or herself, 100%, hold his/her own against 2 elite Makuta. And could they by themselves create Makuta Dupes? Are Makuta Dupes even possible? Or would the Makuta Detection null that?

Why would a Vortixx be able to beat even one Makuta? Makuta have 40+ powers. If Vortixx posed that big of a threat to the Makuta, the Makuta would have wiped them out long ago.

So I've been wondering about Velika...

 

1) Did Velika come to regard the Matoran Universe inhabitants as truly living beings with free will, since he gave them sapience, or did he always see them as nanotech?

2) Did Velika like/care for the Matoran Resistance team he spent so much time with? He seemed fond of them in the novels.

3) Velika very actively helped the Toa Inika fight against the Piraka, even crafting zamor launchers for them. Why?

4) So Velika wants to rule Spherus Magna because he believes that poor leadership is what lead to disaster in the first place. Why is he so convinced that HE has to be the one ruling?

1) Somewhere in the middle

2) I think he cared for them as a creator cares for the things he makes, probably.

 

3) Because the Piraka were a threat. They were chaotic. Velika wants to impose order.

 

4) For the same reason that anyone wants to be a ruler -- he's basically a narcissist. He thinks he is smarter and better than anyone around him, and so of course he should be the one in charge.

These are a few questions I have on Bionicle.Thinking

 

1. What ever happened to the information Mata-Nui got on other planets?

2. Did Brutaka ever get his dorsal fin removed, or does he still have it?

3. Is "void" actually an element, if so how common is it?

4. Why did the Toa Nuva suddenly need symbols to contain their elemental energy?

5. If six toa of different elements (besides light/shadow) all unleashed a nova blast at the same time, what would happen? Would the radius be six times as big? Would it trap everything in a toa seal?

 

 Thank you in advance for answering!Wink

 


1) Probably lost when the robot died

2) Don't recall

3) Void is not a Toa element, no

4) I'm not sure what you mean by "suddenly need." The nuva symbols came along with the existence of Nuva.

5) Probably the latter

 

Hi mr Greg

 

1. A Toa a of psychic and the Makuta and Tren Krom can put the other people in a vegetative state with their power?

 

2.A Toa of electricity can control the electronic objects?

1) We know Tren Krom can, but we have never seen a Toa or Makuta do it. And I doubt a Toa ever would, anyway.

2) No. Overload, yes, but not control. Electronics use electricity for power, but the electricity does not control how they function.

1. Does the Matoran Universe experience seasons?

2. Does Spherus Magna have longer days than Earth?

3. Is the length of a day in the Matoran Universe the same length as an Earth day? Or a Spherus Magna day? Or are the two the same as an Earth day?

 

I actually read a very interesting concept on a tumblr page owned by a nicrophorus-americanus. He has this cool series on there called "Fleshing out the Matoran Universe." On the first blog post in this series he wrote:
* Seasons did exist in the Matoran universe, and were the effects of Mata Nui’s self-regulation of temperature. Much energy was produced in his hands, feet, and internal engines, which he then circulated through the rest of the universe on a regular cycle. The lands of the Su-Matoran and the Southern Islands, however, were almost always swelteringly hot.

I don't know if you're still canonizing stuff, but I really liked the idea and wanted to hear if you did too, and if you'd be interested in making it canon?

 

Thanks for your time Greg.

I just remembered something about a 36 hour day having been canonized, based on the Great Sundial. Is this correct?

Don't recall.

1. What about the question of there being seasons then? Do you think the MU have seasons? And do you think that SM has seasons too?

2. Also, what do you think of nicrophorus-americanus' concept of MU seasons? It's pretty neat, right?

1) SM has seasons, yes. As far as the theory of seasons and how they would work, my first question is why would the MU have seasons? Of what benefit would it be to the inside of a machine to have spring and fall? They wouldn't have been needed for familiarity for the Matoran, since the Matoran would not have experienced seasons before. So if you are building a giant robot, why would you want seasons inside of it?


1. Is it possible to post images on these messageboards? If so, how?
2. Can we PM other users on these message boards? If so, how?
3. In the Legend Reborn, in the scenes in which Mata Nui was in Ackar's house, Ackar is seen looking at some objects and throwing them into a bag. What are those things? THe first one looked like a belt buckle, the second one was a smaller version of the thing Berix "collected" from Tersera, the third one was some sort of necklace, and the last one was some sort of gadget.
4. Do all Skakdi mutate like the Piraka did when exposed to Pit Mutagen?
4b) If so, does that mean that Vezon would just be a head if he came into contact with mutagen, as he lacks a spine?
5. If you can't post images on the message board, I'll tell you how I found that image. I did a Google Images search for "Makuta regions" After I found the image while looking for a picture of Teridax. When I couldn't re-find it, I just searched for "Makuta regions".
6. Whats the relationship between Krana and Zyglak?

On question five, in the process of creating the toa seal nova blast, would the toa trap/kill each other?

 

Sorry I forgot to ask you earlier.

It's to settle an Roleplay problem. If yer reading this VF, I told you so! Joking

Ok then  I would be honerd if you read my fan-fic it is on LEGO.com its called bionicle fan fiction

Some few questions about HF and Bionicle:

 

1.- Are there humans on the Hero Factory universe?

2.- Do great beings habe human traits such as hair, skin, etc?

3.- How were the great beings capable to biud TWO giant robots? Did they have psychic powers or something?

4.- Who created Makuro?

5.- Is there any possibility that with an Great Olmak you could travel to the HFverse or the Nuvaverse (Bionicle Reboot, as i like to call it) 

 

Thanks Happy

I asked sevral questions, but I think you didn't see them, so here they go again, with some new Smile :
 
1- Can the Makuta posess a body of a being that has reciently died?
1.1- If so, can they posess that body permanently, or would it be teleported to the red star?
1.2- Either way, could they use their Shadow powers and their Kraata powers in that lifless body?
2- Can the Mask of Mind Control posess a Makuta, since they are beings of pure energy?
3- Can the same Mask control a Glatorian, or it doesn't work with organic beings?
4- If a being from the Matoran Universe is blinded (like the Makuta Phantoka), can their eyes be repaired?
5- If a Makuta can't survive if his essence is leaked out from a scratch of his armor, how could Teridax's essence survive after his armor was compleatly crushed by the gate of the Mangaia?
6- Can a Glatorian or an Agori have his light drained by a Shadow leech?
7- Was Mata Nui's body like that of a Glatorian, or was more like a Toa?
8- After the great rescue, did the Matoran lost their memories and size inside the Matoran Sphere, or after awakening?
9- Could a Toa Nuva devolve into a regular Toa at will, disconecting him/herself from his/her Nuva Symbol?
