Will anyone try to evacuate the Mountain from Xia, or is it pretty much doomed? Should we list it as "Deceased" or some variant on BS01?


Nobody is going to knock themselves out for this, and in the rush of a salvage operation, they probably won't even realize it's alive..


But is the Mountain actually still alive or did he die when Teridax was killed?

Re: Chat with Greg Farshtey

Hey Greg, I have two questions about Sentrakh's apparent immortality:

 

1) Exactly how far does his inability to "live or die by normal standards" go? For example, would he still be functional after being impaled through the torso, but with the rest of his body intact? How about if he was decapitated?

 

2) Does Sentrakh's immortality manifest as a Wolverine-like regenerative healing factor, or simply an inability to die (by normal means)?  Maybe some other ways?

 

Also, I have some other, unrelated questions:

 

3) Can you give us any more Kraata powers for Tahu?

 

4) MU inhabitants need to sleep, right? I assume they don't need a lot of it though, due to their partly mechanical nature.

 

5) If you had it your way, what kind of tone would you have/have had Bionicle take? Would you go for a more light hearted tone, or something more mature? 

 

6) Organic protodermis (abbreviated as OP) technically isn't actually organic matter, right? As far as we know, OP:

-Does not require nutrition, only "energy" 

-Regenerates far more quickly, than actual organic tissue, as indicated by the Toa Mata

-Does not have a cellular structure, as indicated by the MU inhabitants' lack of a circulatory system

-Can seamlessly assimilate mechanical structures such as gears and pistons into their framework

Therefore, isn't "Organic" protodermis simply protodermis mimicking biology, rather than actually being it? 

 

7) Are all Toa, aside from the Nuva and Mahri, the same basic "model"? I know their armor takes the shape of what they imagine, but do all Toa have the same: height, body shape/proportions, amount of elemental reserve, strength level, etc?  I would hope there is at least a small varitation in the first two for more individuality.

@kyle7475Sentrakh actually is mortal, that was confirmed three days ago:

1. Did Krahka, Kopeke, Lariska and Johmak destroy the pool of EP on Daxia after they split of Tahu and Onua or did all six destroy it?

 

2. Is it possible to kill Sentrakh? I know that he's in an undead state, but so are Vampires and Zombies, and it is possible to kill those.


1) After

2) Yes

I doubt very much that the title "Toa" would be abandoned in story. LEGO spent a lot of time and money establishing that as an identity and it's trademarked, so why not use it?

hey Greg

what bionicle year had the largest  story Bible


All of the story bibles were huge. They had to not only contain high points of story for the year but details on every character and set.

Re: Chat with Greg Farshtey


 1) Could you confirm whether ot not the remainder of Lesovikk's team is on the Red Star?  2) The Red Star can't revive anyone not from the Matoran Universe, right?

3) The head of a person is needed for Red Star revival because the AI needs to be downloadable, right? In that case, if a person were crushed and their head destroyed, would they still be revived? 4) If half of a person's body is disintegrated and the other half isn't, can that person still be revived by the Red Star?

5)The Matoran that Tuyet killed weren't teleported to the Star. Were they teleported later off-screen, or was the damage to their bodies so severe that they were never teleported? For reference, One of the Matoran was burnt to death by molten protodermis, another fell from a very high distance to death (it was mentioned his mask was shattered) and the last one drowned.

6) Kopaka made a point in The Powers That Be that the murders of Karzahni and Tren Krom were especially gruesome, as if their was a meaning behind it or a hidden clue. Can you say what that was?

7) The alternate Tuyet that Teridax and Matoro came across had been dead for 1000 years and her corpse was never sent to the Red Star. Was this because she came from an alternate universe? After all, she was found in the reamins of the Pit, so I assume she died inside the Matoran Universe.

 

Thank you for your time and patience!


1) If they were disintegrated, as seems likely, then they could not be revived because there needs to be a body to teleport.

2) Correct

 

3) No

 

4) Depends on which half survived intact

 

5) If they were killed in the MU, and enough survived for a revival, they would have been teleported. We have never said how quickly teleportation takes place.

 

6) Yes. Velika was looking to cause fear and panic, which he would then position himself as the person to quell.

 

7) She was not programmed correctly for this universe's red star.

firstly, thank you for answering my other questions. It's really nice to see an author willing to do something like this for his fans, and if I ever get a large following in my own career I think I'll do the same.

 

I just have one more question - How did you get introduced/did you get introduced to the look of the sets you were writing for? Did they just send you a few pictures or concept art, or outright give you built sets of bionicle to reference.


I would usually see PDFs of the models. Later on, I would see prototypes at story meetings in Denmark.

I was reffering to the unconfirmed leaks which call the Toa the Masters of (element). I know you can't say anything about the leaks so, yeah.

We normally start working on the first issue of the next year around July of the year before. So, for example, we are working on issue 1 for 2015 now.

Since they were armed with weapons that disintegrate, it would make sense that they used them, so yes.
