"Forgive the delay, Turaga." So yeah, I don't have a Halloween costume, and I have lots of cereal in my dorm room. Looks like I'm gonna be a cereal killer this year. Yup.

• The Stars Skrall character does not have a name.
• The Stars Piraka is Nektann (he survived the battle with the Rahkshi).
• Q: Is Bota Magna going to appear in the story at all? A: "Well, the answer is maybe. We originally planned with Bota Magna to be that the residents had decided that technology and machines had destroyed Spherus Magna, so they had abandoned and destroyed every piece of technology and machinery on the planet, so they had went from being part organic, part biomechanical, to part organic, part biomechanical, and part plant."
• Greg: "I asked to show a Great Being in one of the graphic novels and got told no, Denmark does not want them revealed yet. So that is still a bit of a taboo subject, at least for now."
THE LEGEND REBORN
• Q: All the BIONICLE names so far have been Maori or Latin. So why is Click so named? A: "Well, I actually didn't name him. What the original script had was Mata Nui arrives on Bara Magna, and gets attacked by a monster with a scorpion tail (Not a Vorox). What was supposed to happen was, well, the stinger tail breaking off still happened, but a group of the Scarabax were to come along and devour the monster. The director came to me and said: 'If we're going to animate these things, then they've gotta appear more.' And that's how Click came around."
• Q: Did the script for The Legend Reborn call for Metus to be turned into a snake? A: "No. We went through all sorts of ideas. Him getting killed, banished, imprisoned, etc. So finally the director came up with the idea for him turning into a snake."
• Q: How did you decide on the traitor? A: "Well, we figured that whoever the traitor was, he or she had to travel around Bara Magna quite a bit, so much that no one really cared what he was doing, because he travelled a lot. So that's how we decided on Metus."

• Tarduk goes on two journeys north; the second is during the Legend Reborn.
• Mata Nui leaves the desert immediately after the events of the movie.

• Q: What kind of energy did the Coliseum in Metru Nui produce? Was it straight-up electricity or something more exotic? A: "I prefer to think it was something more exotic."

• There were more Order of Mata Nui members than Brotherhood of Makuta members at the time of Miserix's reign.
• The Pit mutagen does not necessarily mutate all members of a species in similar ways.
REIGN OF SHADOWS
• The fact that the Order of Mata Nui was unable to discern anything from its studies of the Nui Stone is because their research had been unsuccessful, not that they were unable to remove the shards embedded in Tuyet's armor in the first place.
• The crystal that Tuyet produced in the Archives was the Nui Stone the Order of Mata Nui had reconstructed form the shards in her armor.
• Keetongu is an ally of the Order of Mata Nui and not an official member.
• Tren Krom was utilizing communications gear to send a transmission to the Ignika.
• Axonn and Brutaka returned to the chamber near Mata Nui's consciousness by Brutaka's Makuta power of teleportation.
