  1. Interesting enough, but I doubt they used Thai when coming up with the names. I still think 'Takua' was simply made up.
  2. 2010-11, I think. I wonder if it would've lasted if the board hadn't gone for a while in mid-2011. I don't think it quite recovered from that.
  3. I don't know if it's possible to get an exact answer about this. All I think can be said for sure is that after a while the story team settled on a Matoran number of one thousand(ish), but a lot of the media doesn't reflect this, probably because whoever was making it just didn't have that number in mind. The very early online stuff often shows very few Matoran then the movies show vast crowds. While I do remember the 'twelve Matoran in each village' idea, I don't know if it was decided from the start, and I think Greg soon stated they were dropping it due to the Kohlii match in the first film showing a lot more than just twelve. The second MNOLG might have been made with it in mind, given that there seem to be fewer Matoran than were shown even in the original MNOLG.
  4. The Toa sets were pretty impressive, but beyond that there wasn't much I liked about it. It just felt like a rather weak attempt at rerunning stuff we'd already seen instead of doing anything truly new.
  5. There were three years there, longer than any other island or place AFAIK. How much more time should have been spent there?
  6. The Legend of Mata Nui being cancelled when it was looking so promising. The Bohrok episodes spending too long on needless conversation scenes. MNOLG2 being difficult, tedious and kinda pointless. The lack of a sequel to MOL. The lack of anything like MNOLG for later years. Vakama turning evil, which didn't make much sense. The main story being mostly isolated in the books, which weren't available outside NA. The Nuva getting usurped by the Inika as the main heroes. The Mistika/Phantoka hardly resembling the Nuva at all. Heroes having little to do with the canon story. Takanuva not having a huge amount to do for most of the later story. Gee, this could go on for a while...
  7. Regarding that concept art, how do the people get to their homes? I can't see any way down from the land at the top, and going up from the water at the bottom against the waterfalls would be almost impossible.
  8. I think the scene is meant to make you think Dume is working for Makuta (or somebody else bad), so it's more surprising when it turns out Dume has been taken over by Makuta. The consequence is that the 'Dume seems to be talking to somebody else' scene plays a bit weirdly because now Makuta has to be talking to himself, which isn't something he was shown doing in many other parts of the story.
  9. I've always thought it was a huge shame there weren't more games like MNOLG for the later years.
  10. I agree with a lot of what has been said, but the sad truth is there's often more profit in a story people already know than in one they don't. If there wasn't there wouldn't be as many licenses as there are. I do wonder whether another Bionicle or Ninjago will or would happen again.
  11. Let's assume the LOMN script was written by December 2003, then the filmmaking finished by June 2004 for its late 2004 release. The decision to do another Metru Nui year was made around April 2004, giving them about eight months to prepare the stuff for it, but it was a little too late for the film to be majorly changed. I don't know if that's exactly how it happened, but I think it was something like that.
  12. I don't see how fan stuff changes or would change how people view the official line.
  13. Okay, I actually remember Greg being asked about the film ending and him answering that the second Metru Nui year wasn't planned in advance, then by the time it was, the second film was too far into production to have the ending completely rewritten and reanimated. There was also a topic around 2010 where he made clear that most of Bionicle was 'planned from the beginning' but added that 2005 wasn't, "which is why it always felt a bit forced" or something like that. I'm sorry I can't prove this with the old board long gone, but I'm pretty sure that's what was said.
  14. So why does the end of the 2004 film wrap up the Metru Nui story? Why doesn't it lead into the 2005 story in any way?
  15. It wasn't actually, a second Metru Nui year was only decided on some way into 2004, which is why the 2004 film doesn't lead into the 2005 story and simply ends with the Toa Metru becoming Turaga on Mata Nui instead.
