  2. Could Terridax be reincarnated on the Red Star?

1) I would say Glatorian. A lot of Toa mainly use their elemental powers to fight so they are less experienced at hand to hand to combat.

2) Spherical structure in Karda Nui that was where the Toa canisters were kept until the Toa Mata were needed.

3) No. I never named him and now there are no legally approved BIONICLE names to use.

4) They were placed in the nest by the Brotherhood of Makuta, to be used by Toa against a premature release of the Bohrok. There would have been no reason for the Exo-Toa to attack the Toa, since they were intended to be used by the heroes.

5) Southern portion of the MU

6) The Bohrok would probably have been salvaged to be used as workers on the new world.

7) Salvaged one would assume

8) The MU robot has been dismantled on Spherus Magna.

9) No, for a couple of reasons. He was killed on Bara Magna, not in the MU, and the red star does not work on anything outside of the MU. Plus it does not work on Makuta.

5.Im going to assume it wasnt underwater at that point.Joking How was it launched up under Voya Nui?

6.I know the robot's been dismantled,but surely the domes with the MU in are still intact?

5) The original Pit was in a dome and got flooded. It did not get ejected from the robot. The area of the ocean tainted by mutagen was also referred to as the Pit in story.

6) What would be the point of that? The domes have no heat, light or air without power from the robot. This was a salvage operation, they took everything from the robot that could be used to build shelters, etc.

1. Bara Manga...That's part of Sphereus Magna? 

8. The Toa Ignika

11. Facinating! So...Metru Nui was Mata-Nui's brain, it floated in a proto ocean, which was inside his head? What was the tunnel the Toa traveled through? What was Metru-Nui's light sourse? 

12. Is there anything that can? 

Thanks for your time. 

 


Okay, I have some new questions. 

  1. Bara Manga is part of Spherus Manga, right? 
  2. How did the Toa Inika get smashed? 
  3. Could you explain Makuta's universe to me? Are the islands on or in Mata-Nui's body? What is that planet like? Is it like Kamino from Star Wars, only with a giant robot sleeping in it? Or is it flat? 
  4. Say a toa was turned into a My Little Pony, can Keetongu change him back? 
  5. Loved your book, Makuta's Guide to the Universe! Which guide books did you write after that? I'm guessing Mata-Nui's Guide to Bara Manga. 
  6. Of all the Bionicle books, which one happened first in the story line? Which series came first? Im talking chronologically in the story. 
  7. Were or are you in charge of LEGO Club Magazine? 

Thanks, DC13

1) Yes

2) Smashed? Not sure what you're talking about

3) Makuta's "universe" is the Matoran universe, DC. The "islands" are inside the robot's body. I am not sure what planet you are asking about, though.

4) Would depend on what caused the transformation

5) Yes, the Bara Magna book was the last guidebook I wrote

6) You would need to read the BIONICLE Adventures Series first, which covers 2004 and 2005 story, then go back and read the Cathy Hapka books from 2003, and then go on to the BIONICLE Legends series. The 2009 books did not have a series name, as I recall

7) I am the Editorial Director at the LEGO Group, and one of my jobs is overseeing the magazine, yes

2. On the LMBs "smashed" is a euphamism the mods make us use instead of other words that would actually make sense. The thought being that when you destroy a minifig he "smashes" apart into his composite pieces.

7) I am the Editorial Director at the LEGO Group, and one of my jobs is overseeing the magazine, yes

1) Is it like a Koro or an entire Island? 

2) Nevermind...what happened to the Toa Inika? Jaller, Matoro...those guys. After the remaining five were teleported to Metru Nui, what happened to them? 

3) I know, but I figured Makuta was the universe, so it would be deemed his. So, all the islands are inside of the giant metal body? In the movie Bionicle the Legend Reborn, the robot rose from the water. I'm assuming it was sleeping on a water planet, or was the planet flat, like a bed? 

4) Their goodness was shoved out of their bodies by dark magic, and the goodness took shape as ponies. 

5) Cool, thanks! 

6) Thanks! 

7) Might I suggest adding more Club Codes? And maybe some more info, like character Bios. Last suggestion, the info in the magazine is totally current. In fact, I could look online and find information about upcoming LEGO themes before the mag says anything. No offense. Maybe more inside stories, and ad more news, stuff like that.

1) Neither. It's one-third of the planet. The planet was broken into three pieces -- Aqua Magna, Bara Magna and Bota Magna.

2) You do know they became the Mahri after they were the Inika, right? Anyway, they are on Spherus Magna with everyone else.

3) It was on Aqua Magna

4) No, Keetongu cannot undo magic. There is no magic in the Matoran Universe.

Hi Greg, I have some more questions. These are all about Annona and the Gold Skinned Being:

1)  Is there any living being on Spherus Magna older then Annona?

2)  Did she give herself a name or was it given to her by someone else?

3)  Is she a unique being or did other members of her species exist in the past?

4)  Since Sahmad mistook Annona for a male, is it safe to assume that she has a masculine voice?

5a)  When she hid underground, did she occcasionally find any creature whose dreams she could feed off?

5b)  Or is she capable of going 265.000 years without feeding and have no consequences other than getting hungry?

6)  At the end of Sahmad's Tale she asks the GSB to create a new world for her. Did she mean a new planet or another dimension?

7)  When she will eventually realize that the inhabitants of her new world could be a threat to her, what's stopping her from teleporting back to Spherus Magna?

8)  After Annona departs for her new world, the GSB says something to Sahmad that's a little confusing: "You could have dreamed me out of existence as well. I am surprised you did not." It may not sound so confusing, but later here on the LMBs you said that if someone's dream was for the GSB to die, it would not fulfill it, as it has an instinct for self-preservation. So, what is the GSB talking about? Could it be that it developed this instinct after what happened at his tower?

9)  Does the GSB identify itself as a particular gender or is it asexual?

 

Once again, thanks a lot.

I haven't forgotten you, OS, I will get to these.

1) Unknown. We haven't encountered anyone older.

2) She named herself

3) Unique

4) She has an asexual voice

5a) My feeling is she was in a form of self-induced stasis until prey came near

6) A new planet

7) We don't have any proof she can do interplanetary teleportation. You're talking huge distances

8) Or that you could dream it lost that instinct

9) I think it sees itself as male

Quoting this so it doesn't get lost

You've mentioned that Skrall and Sisters of the Skrall get together once a year to reproduce and for the females to return male children born the prior year. In your point of view:

1. Do you think the males challenge each other for the chance to reproduce, like rutting deer?
2. Are the females aware that the males do not consider themselves as unique beings?
3. Do the females not consider any specific male unique?
4. Can Leader-Class Skrall reproduce with any normal female?
5. Do the female even consider their brothers any more than animals?

Questions not involving Skrall:
6. Are Glatorian and Vorox biologically compatible to reproduce?
6b. If so, does Malum father members of his pack?
7. Are Zesk and Agori biologically compatible to reproduce?
8. Are Bota Magna Vorox compatible with Bara Magna Vorox?

So whatever became of Tyrant in G1?

This is really interesting!

4) What does an asexual voice sound like?

5) If she could remain in stasis for prolonged periods of time, why did she get hungry?

7) Huh. I always thought that when she faded away to her new planet in ST ch.7 she was teleporting.

8) Wouldn't it also have an instinct not to lose its instinict? Joking

Also, another question:

9) It's about this passage of ST.

"I realized that I could have dreamed Annona out of existence before, but didn't. Maybe because somehow I knew it wouldn't work. If the golden being could have eliminated Annona that easily, he would have done so."

What exactly was stopping the GSB from eliminating Annona?

hey Greg, will you be doing anymore ninjago LEGO graphic novels?

Hello Mr Greg 

 

1. Why the Toa Mahri have abandoned their espionage mission to serve the Golden Skinned Being after the GSB had asked to be feed? 

 

2. Why Teridax has implanted the idea to create the Golden Skinned Being in the minds of the Skakdi? The GSB could erase Teridax from the existence.

 

3. If Annona had devoured the dreams of all the living beings of Spherus Magna, She could teleport herself on another planet or Annona would have been trapped on Spherus Magna without food and eventually die of starvation? 

 

4. How old has Annona? 

 

5. You recently said that the world of Annona's doom is in facta planet and not a dimension as i thought initially. I have two questions on this subject. This planet is in the system of Solis Magna or this planet is in another dimension? This planet is identical to Spherus Magna or is it different? 

 

6. The Red Star has a spherical shape? if not, what is the shape of Red Star? 

 

7. The Red Star can be used as a sort of spaceship? the Red Star was a sort of jet pack for the GSR but he must surely have a control room inside. If this is the case, Kopaka Pohatu will eventually find this control room and use it to return to Spherus Magna? 

 

Thank you very much Happy

Hi Greg, I'm sorry if I'm asking too many questions at once, but there's a little problem on BS01, and I would like to resolve it as soon as possible.

Basically, the GB page incorrectly stated that they have great ethereal powers, even though you said numerous times that the GBs do not have any powers of their own, they only have access to advanced technology. So when I saw that I immediatly edited the page, but BS01 member Dorek undid my revision. His point was that, while trapped in his tower, the Mad GB couldn't have done all of those super-natural stuff like communicating with Vezon from a different dimension and freezing temporal space around him. So, my question is, did the Mad GB have access to technological devices when he was in the tower?

 

Thanks!

Hey Greg!

 

1. How did Vican become larger? Was it due to the mutations, or was he rebuilt?

 

2. Are Krekka and Sidorak's species different? Perhaps they are sub-species of one species?

 

3. Does "Toa" literally translate to "Hero" in Matoran? Because, it doesn't make sense for Le-Matoran to say "Toa-Toa" or "Hero-Hero". Would there be another word in Matoran for hero?

 

4. Is Tuma's sword unique or did most Leader-class Skrall carry that kind of sword?

 

5. How's it going with the Earth Tribe story?

 

Thanks Smile

Hello! I have a few questions about Bionicle if you have the time to answer!

 

-If you were aproached by LEGO to do anything Bionicle related in the future, do you think you'd be interested?

 

-Can the Avohkii and Kraahkan (Masks of light and dark) be the same mask that changes between two forms (dark and light) based on the wearers spirit/morality? It seems possible since it's technically an elemental mask and not a legendary, implying more than one could be made of each.

 

Thanks dude! You're the coolest!

I've got a question. Joking

 

My little brother got a Ninjago comic book out of the library, and I noticed that you were credited as the author.  It got me thinking, did you write the storyline for the Papercutz comic books, or were you given a story outline and told to just write the details? Thinking Thanks! Happy
