  1. You know, I don't really believe this but I've always thought it would be awesome. Mimic could take over Spherus Magna and may become unstoppable. Here's why: Mimic's "friend" who was captured by the Dark Hunters is a ruse. Their actually purposefully in on this together. By being recruited to the Dark Hunters Mimic can gain the skills of nearly every single Dark Hunter there and then use it against them to take over the dark hunters. However, with robots like the Vahki, Bohrok, and Baterra, it is possible for him to set up a sort of grinding farm (basically cheating to get skills for you non-gamers lol). He could simply watch the robots do things normal beings couldn't and then learn them instantly. How did he get the skill to create such a place with such advanced robotics? From Phantom, former Nynrah Ghost and genius inventor turned Dark Hunter. Phantom had no idea that Mimic was watching him when he toiled away with random mechanical parts trying to escape back to his memories of a normal life. Mimic watched him and even placed little accidents and objects here and there for Phantom to see that would subliminally make him nostalgic and begin working on more advanced projects in his spare time. Even better, all that free roaming Mimic gets while the Shadowed One keeps him far away from Odina lest he discovers his secret is the perfect opportunity to go under the radar and take a little excursion to Metru Nui, where he quietly roamed Le-Metru and the Coliseum for a while, patiently observing the Vahki and the Matoran who built and repaired them every day. Learning to mimic their every move. Back at Odina, Mimic's friend waits in her cell for him to break out. But she's not scared. She knows the plan down to the finest detail because she helped create it. Her name is Krahka. Some day she will shed her disguise and reveal herself to be the monster that fought the Toa Metru. The cell guards won't stand a chance against her, let alone Mimic. And so Mimic trains every day. He's already learned to program long ago and is constantly creating new programs for his training robots to execute so that he can learn them from himself. The scary part? He's begun learning from these programs before the training robots execute them. With every new skill he learns his original skill is growing better. What if some day he becomes able to learn skills without ever seeing them before himself? What if some day his mind becomes so perfected at learning others' abilities that it can learn abilities that were once confined to his imagination, and he soon becomes knowledgeable of virtually perfectly executing every act his mortal form can possibly conceive and perform? And what if some day it goes beyond that? What if it doesn't stop at his mortal limits? What if there are no limits? Let's hope Mimic stays a good guy (he kind of is right now I guess, he's just working for the wrong side).
  2. I think it would have been great if it turned out Roodaka was an INCREDIBLY undercover Order operative that whole time, and she was creating commotion through her treachery. Remember how she purposely got Sidorak killed? Sure she could have been trying to take the throne, but what does she care about a bunch of spiders? She hardly needs them. She could be so undercover that she's allowed to do things like turn the Toa Hagah into the Rahaga and fight the Toa Metru. Better yet maybe she was bad all around and then legitimately joined the Order because she was bitter about other factions. Heck, she could be just as bad as she lets on, but it would be incredibly redeeming to find out that she does have a specified alignment and isn't just there to rustle everybody's jimmies.
  3. Order member for life, yo. Those guys are awesome. I don't agree with everything they do, but they're like the good guys counterpart of the Dark Hunters. Plus I feel like Helryx is probably the most reliable leader out of all of those. I would definitely trust her the most simply because I couldn't imagine her not having MU's best interests in mind. Also working with Johmak must be awesome. And they some how got an eel and a peculiarly squishy mask to do it and make babies.
  4. The doubles the Mohtrek summons can be injured and killed. Furthermore, they retain injuries when sent back to their time. Bitil occasionally found himself with injuries he didn't remember getting because a future version of himself summoned him and he got hurt in the battle. I know about Bitil finding himself with odd injuries. But while they can be injured it doesn't necessarily mean mortally or badly enough to cause them to die in battle any time in between the time they were summoned from and summoned to. Besides, if they died what would that mean? Nobody around him is surprised by Bitil being alive after one of his duplicates dies, so it can't comply with the theory that he's sent into a universe where he did die to prevent a paradox, and unless he can be revived somehow it doesn't comply with the the theory that the outcome is always the same, and the theory that time travel is simply impossible in that universe is already disproven by the mask's very functionality, so what is there to prevent a paradox? That's why I was saying maybe his duplicates disappear back to there time the instant before they can be killed, mortally wounded, or injured badly enough to make him die in a fight in between the summoning time and the present.
  5. Exactly. Most of these Kanohi are taboo simply because of their association with the Makuta. The Crast I think is more of a cultural issue, the Shelek is useless to anyone who isn't a troll or an antisocial shut-in, but the Mohtrek can stay on the banned list, in my opinion, because if one of your past selves slips up, ya gone. Actually I've always assumed that the mask automatically sends back your time duplicate before he/she can be killed or mortally wounded. In fact it may not even need to be programmed into the mask to make your duplicates go back in time because physics may take over to prevent a paradox. That is, of course, depending on what you choose to believe. There are three theories on paradoxes. A) Nature prevents them by making time travel impossible. B) Nature prevents them by putting you in an alternate universe where you did die (kind of like the movie It's a Wonderful Life). C) Nature prevents paradoxes by making it so no matter what you do, events always happen just right so that the same outcome happens in a death in Tehran sort of way. I believe C, which would suggest that either Bitil's time duplicates are invincible and always escape death through a convenient series of unpredictable events or that the mask simply isn't able to keep his duplicates in combat if they are about to die or become mortally wounded. That would also prevent them from being wounded so badly that they would die at any point in a fight between the time they were pulled from and the time they were pulled to. If take into account the Occam's Razor, then it is far more probable that the latter is true, meaning it is impossible to kill the duplicates of a Mohtrek wearer, only get them in a situation where they are prone to dying, being wounded mortally, or being wounded badly enough that they would die in a fight in between the time they were pulled from and the presence, which would explain why they're fairly easy to get rid of. Just shooting at their heads would make them disappear before the projectile even hit them. Come to think of it that's a kind of useless mask.
  6. That actually really makes sense. I myself was wondering if Matoran moral values are either different or simply still developing, as they were originally intended to be like worker drones or cells in a body, and happened to gain sentience. This makes even more sense when you consider that before Velika tampered with the universe, the inhabitants' intelligence, emotion, and independence was somewhat limited. If the Komau was first made before Velika gave them independence, they would have very few, if any, morals (example: the untampered Kestora in the Red Star who had no qualms about dissecting revived beings alive), thus creating a loophole in the morality system. EDIT: Velika also wears a Komau? Coincidence? Yes, because it's a powerless Matoran mask. Ohmahgudness. I totally forgot about Velika and that whole storyline XD. A bit off topic, but I had my Velika figure standing right next to my desktop when I read that part on Bioniclestory.com and I just stared at him for a bit like "wuuuut..." But yeah, the Kestora are a great point, too. Those people are in charge of keeping everybody alive, but they're fricking psychopaths. Kind of scary to imagine what the Matoran universe was like before Velika tampered with it. Who knows, maybe he's the good guy and we just can't see past how miffed we are that he wants to kill Helryx, Axonn, Billy Zane, etc. I'm probably missing something here, but...Billy Zane? Are you actually talking about Billy Zane, or is that a fan-nickname for a character? XD no I'm just kidding. Billy Zane's probably cool by Velika's standards.

  9. Everything about bootlegs gets on my nerves. I absolutely hate the concept of leeching money off of other peoples' ideas and intellectual, which is why I don't even visit Pirate Bay for public domain things because I don't want to give them the ad profit. In turn, even if it was something crazy like the world's first working mask of shielding I still wouldn't get it because the people who so blatantly steal from others because they refuse to come up with any original ideas don't deserve the money. I know this is kind of a rant, but I'm the kind of guy who wouldn't even be able to go into an isle in a store that had bootleg Legos (especially Roboticle, like geez!) just because it would put me in a mood for the rest of the day. Kind of like when I read a status on FB/Twitter/Instagram that is just so dumb that it surpasses all levels of funny and leaves me in a red-hot mood for the rest of the day contemplating how these kinds of people even exist. Except in this case it's a blatant injustice not a pet peeve. In short, no. I would never do that. I would be more likely to get the materials to make a mold of a piece and forge it out of whatever plastic I wanted. Yeah that's pretty absurd, and no I have never done anything even remotely similar to that, but at least it wouldn't be funding the people behind such shameless bootlegs. Because of this I recommend that you stay away from bootlegs. It takes thousands of individuals to choose not to pay these freaks money to keep their cycle going, and you, me, and everybody on this forum are all said individuals. In the end it's a viscous cycle. Knockoff Company + Product Purchases = More Money to Continue the Line of Knockoffs Repeat Throw a wrench into that cycle by making do with less or improvising by creating pieces. In fact if you live in a university town like I do, they likely have 3D printers for student or even public use, so if you can get your hands on a CAD of the piece you want or a 3D scanner you can print the piece and even modify the shape a bit if you know how to 3D model. This means less money for the bootleggers and in turn less bootleggers in the world. Thanks for bearing with my disturbingly rant-like post and remember: The only good bootlegger is a bankrupt bootlegger.
  10. Picture says it all. What exactly is up with things like that? Are they doomed to remain moral plot holes or are there explanations for them? Please note that that's just an example. There are a lot of other strange contradictions like that in the Toa and Mata Nui's Moral Code.
