Canonicity.

Are the BIONICLE movies entirely canon? Because I have a specific point that has been bugging me for a while. In the first 3 films, the Toa and Matoran all manage to stash things behind their backs. Is this canon, and is there a word for it, because I don't even know where to start looking for this kind of thing on BS01.

I personally view the movies as broadly canon; the events are canon, the details may not be. (This also allows me to write off Lewa and Onua's voices.)

I always treated that as canon 'cause the egyptians had a similar concept and it's cool. I( think it was referred to in a few books too. I just called it their "pack" and imagined it got stored in their suva through a majik link.

This "hammer space," as it has come to be called, exists in a loooot of fictional media. It's just a part of suspension of disbelief and is really, really something you shouldn't ever worry about.

Just looked up "Hammerspace" on wikipedia. It seems odd to me that Greg wouldn't have provided a canon explanation for such a thing. I know it's kind of a cartoon phenomenon type thing, but I don't think it fits well into canon storyline.

Well, not only would that have weirded people out (it seems like an unnecessary concept that didn't really have any impact on the canon, and so should be treated separately from it), it wasn't really Greg's to make a judgement call (an error in thinking that we saw a lot of back in the day). It's just an artistic license to allow characters to be shown in full without design interruptions. It's used plenty of places (sometimes referenced to, sometimes not) as ET said. It's about as relevant to the canon as the typeface of the books. There's as much reason to explain where the weapons went as to why the characters in the movies aren't perfect replicas of their toy counterparts (stop-motion movies, anyone?). Artistic interpretation is necessary to transition toys to movies, and this is just an example of it.
