1. would the "destined" matoran (nuhrii, tehutti, ehrye, orkaham, vhisola, and ahkmou) have called themselves by the same name (toa metru) if they had become toa?

 

2. we know what their (pre-stated matoran) masks would have been, but would their weapons have been the same as the toa metru of their element?

 

3. if a matoran nui of destined matoran was given 6 toa stones, would they become a toa nui (despite the normal impossibility of this) or would the nui have shattered and resulted in 6 toa?

 

4. in Time Trap, you said that vakama built Nuju's teloscopic sight onto his mask, does this mean that most Matatu would be symmetrical and not hace the teloscope? (pg. 35 if you're curious)

 

5. are all matoran the same build as the metru nui matoran sets? (since the Tohunga were shrunken, the Rebuilt Mata Nui Matoran were rebuilt shrunken, the Karda Nui Av-matoran were absorbing light, and the Voya Nui were "fixed" shrunken)

 

6. verifying- is Barraki the name of the six leaders only, and the League of Six Kingdoms is the organization?

 

7. is each Barraki a different species?

 

8. how close are the Barraki sets to their original form?

 

9. are there any of them that are species we are familiar with?

 

10. could a toa of iron modify his armor, non-organic body peices, and weapons, maybe even change between weapons at any given time? (providing he had enough elemental power)

call out to anyone who reads this (especially Boidoh): I am not good at running votings/polls, if yes to the above, will someone run it for me?

 

 

I'd assume Greg would say yes to stuff like Orde's and Zaria's Mask Power, the other stuff wouldn't be exactly the stuff a poll can get the results of. I'd be willing to run it.

I have been considering this, and have thus rephrased the question:

 

3. what are Orde and Zaria's mask powers?

 

3.5. was Zaria actually evil, or was that just a rumor?

3) They were never assigned mask powers.

3.5) We never said Zaria was evil anywhere. We said Zaria violated the Toa code, but that does not automatically equate to evil.

1) Probably

2) Unknown, it would have depended on what they chose to use.

 

3) No, you cannot become a Toa Nui

 

4) No, because the change became popular

 

5) Yes

 

6) Yes

 

7,9) We never bothered identifying what they original species was. I think it is unlikely they are all different species.

 

8) Pretty far apart

 

10) Yes

3) Wedll, we know Teridax put them in charge, which means the BOM had to have control and the Sidorak followed whoever the BOM designated

 

4) Water infused with a mutagen that leaked from the MN robot

 

5) Mutated

 

6) His original role was to repair broken Matoran

 Hi Greg, this is related to some questions I had a while back about Shadow Matoran, where you answered by saying that Mata Nui had undone the mutations that Mutran performed on the Shadow Matoran, removing their claws, wings, etc.

 

Biosector01 claims that you said that Vican, Mutran's assitant, had chosen to retain his mutations as a reminder of his past mistakes.  Did Mata Nui undo his mutations as well, or did he leave them alone, taking Vican's desires into account?

He took Vican's desires into account.

Is there a decided reason why Kanoka have specific traits dependent on the metru they were forged in, E.G. 'The disks absorbed trace amounts of elemental energy from the matoran who forged them, giving them such traits'?

If so, what is it?

I always saw it as something stylistic. The same way the same item produced in different neighborhoods in a city might be unique to that neighborhood

Which Makuta powers got Brutaka, after he was fallen in a pool of antidermis?

 

We know he gained teleportation abilities and mind-linked with the substance, so that he knows how to do things like create Rahi. As far as other Makuta powers, I don't think we saw evidence of others in story.

Sorry Mods are very paticular with the word Dead. It is safer to use Smashed. The main point of this question is with Makuta of Light/Shadow and what would happen if one and one collided.

We can't talk about killing or say killed on the LMBs.

It's unlikely that one blast would be fatal. A protracted fight might prove terminal, but a Toa or a Makuta is just too tough to go down from one hit.

1. is there the POSSIBILITY of other prototypes than the Av-matoran? matoran, toa, turaga (or similar beings), of sand, etc.

2. if so, since they didn't show up in the MU, are the stored in stasis on SM?

3. could we vote on them (the mask powers)?

3.5. I was referring to the rumor that he mutilated/tore apart/killed all his opponents after he defeated them (evil in the eyes of the Matoran, at least)

According to Bioniclesector01, Ehlek was only slightly mutated, in which he developed spines. Does this mean that his original form looked exactly the same as his set form, only without the spines?

Alright, I have a few (no wait, several) questions. Feel free to leave some unanswered.

 

1. In what way do Kanoka influence the powers of the Kanohi? Would it be possible to get a feel as to what the power would be before combining two kanoka disks?

2. Is there a limit as to how many Kanoka can be used in the creation of a Kanohi mask, before the powers get too diluted?

2b. If so, what would this limit average around?

3. Can one use two Kanoka of the same power with a third of a different power in creating a Kanohi mask, to get a different result than just combining two Kanoka together?

4. Are there any Kanohi masks worth mentioning that use the freeze Kanoka in their creation?

4b. If so, what would the other disks in their creation be?

5. Can the powers of organic masks be created with Kanoka?

5b. What Kanohi masks cannot be created with Kanoka?

6. What are the component disks of an increase weight disk?

7. Last question: How exactly did the Golden Kanohi come to be?
