  1. As you can see, it was distributed during the Power Lies Beneath Tour in 2002, not through Lego Magazine. Hence the rarity!!
  2. Oh no, its down? I didnt even know it was up somewhere... was it one of the things Templar cleared from their site? In any case, thanks for preserving these. From the image that looks like a lot of polygons for a 2002 web game!
  3. Right when Greg told BZP it was cancelled and he still had all the writing he had done saved, people asked him if he could post it on the forums, and he was open to the idea. There were some behind-the-scenes talks and it didnt pan out for some reason or another, but I guess they got as far as Greg sending over the first bit.
  4. Greg wrote the novels as freelance, he was actually contracted by Scholastic for them instead of Lego. I'd guess it was less them telling Greg that specific book he was writing was cancelled than it was them informing him that the book count was going to be smaller than projected for that year - then he made the decision himself to toss the stuff he had written (a 'free space' story like Voyage of Fear or Legacy of Evil) to make sure he could cover the core 07 story with the three slots he had. So no loss on Scholastic's end for commissioning him. From what I remember he said he hadn't written the full thing, and from interviews it doesnt seem like he even really had the time for rough drafts (five books, even small ones, plus full time work and hours answering Qs on here is a lot). I'd wager whatever he did write was the stuff hes alluded to - this intro covers his idea for Matoro's possession, and I can definitely see chapter 1 hitting on the Zyglak and Vezon's capture. That might be as far as he got.
  5. thanks all for sharing your experiences, i didnt get to visit a legoland until 2011 so hearing about the bionicle stuff i missed out on is very neat!! vakama and hahli narrating the 03 fireworks show is an interesting pairing, and its cool they were running mnog on the clubhouse computers in california. still hoping someday someone who witnessed the tribal jam in 01 will come forward to describe it... ive only been able to find this lone photo:
  6. pics and scans from the tribal quest as it was in california. they had an excess of tgnms there, too, lol
  7. That 1800 is just the Lego shop at home number... I'd wager they offered the slizer-branded spare disc packs by mail order.

    According to Greg, the original bible said Mata Nui was "in a place that might be earth," so there is some precedent if this teaser were meant to be taken literally. I'm not convinced though Antarctica here is meant to be more than symbolic, if only because itd feel somewhat redundant for Faber to be trying to get two "near future on Earth" environmentalist narratives off the ground at once. but on the other hand, it wouldn't surprise me too much if that were the case. I guess we'll see, hopefully.
  9. Yay, glad to see this is up! Excited to read more of these through proper translation instead of just google... the blog looks really spiffy too. nice header!
  10. As Cheesy said, we've got their version of mnog saved on bmp. All our versions of the game should have that text re-implemented as well (save for the official 2006 download, which is unmodified from how lego presented it). I strongly recommend you try a download version of the game as the streaming ones are only going to get more and more broken until/if we find a workaround for the deteriorating support for Flash.
  11. I'd happily check the inventory number on mine - if i had access to it atm. Hopefully Planetperson has his more close at hand.
  12. Yeah, the US release of the Toa Metru never came with CDs at all - they were Europe only. Your findings with the minicomics seem correct - I only ever got the Matoran version of the comic. In fact, I had no idea there was an alternate Toa Metru one lol. Ive long assumed my Metru Nui minicomics came packaged with my Toa Metru, but considering the ebay listings you found, combined with the fact mine are all the Matoran version, it seems a safe bet they came from my Matoran sets. If you're able to scan the Toa edition at some point, that would be great - BS01 and bmp only have the Matoran one (i believe from some scans i made many years ago).
  13. Hi BZP! been a bit. Here's my take on an animation Templar intended to include in mnog, but didn't have the time to finish. Its about Onua!
  14. The Mask of Destiny news archives are preserved on the biomedia project servers; theyre not currently accessible but that will not be the case forever. Sorry i can't give you more right now!
  15. I have no memory of making such a change, but it's certainly likely that it was my fault, considering that the book type-ups came from me. Perhaps I was somehow bothered by the sword being in two pieces? I really have no idea at this point... Might've been edited since that's potentially one of Hapka's Nuva/original Toa confusion slipups that made it to print - the key art of the Nuva has Tahu with his magma swords combined into one big sword.
