    Downfall

    Hi everyone! This is my first post in a very long time and my first topic in an even longer time. I’ve been getting back into BIONICLE in a big way lately and I’ve just re-read downfall, one of my favourite BIONICLE books. Inspired me to make this: This took me about an hour and a half in total, done on my iPad on a bus journey. What do you think? (Clean version without the text can be found here: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/turagapohatunuva/topicimages/0ba5356b-94ba-4403-b8e4-35ba6e94fab5.jpeg)
  2. I got so excited about this when I first heard about it, pre-ordered it straight away and just finished listening to it. Well worth the wait in my opinion, absolutely love the soundtrack and now I can listen to the full thing whenever I want. Brilliant!
  3. I was re-reading some of the story serials today and it got me wondering, what other areas of the Bionicle storyline do you wish got its own serial? I always loved that we got to explore the secondary stories in these, what was going on elsewhere alongside the main story being told in the comics and books. Personally, I would have loved a serial focussing on the Turaga during the Dark Time on Mata-Nui. It could explore how they adapted to lives as leaders of the Matoran rather than their protectors, the formation of the Koro, the Kraata hunts etc. What little explored aspect of the story would you want a serial of?
  4. My first was Gali Mata, way back in 2001. I didn't really start collecting until 2003 though, so most of my 2001/2002 sets I've got more recently.
  5. I'm fully fluent in it, both letters an numbers. Learned it years ago by decoding those Seventh Toa related messages in the Official Guide to Bionicle. Since then I've never forgot it and I still use it ever now and then when I write something I want to keep private.
  6. While we don't know what the noble Hau Nuva, Pakari Nuva or Kaukau Nuva look like, we do know it for the other Kanohi Nuva. The Av-Matoran Photok, Solek and Tanama wear Kanohi in the shape of the noble versions of the Kakama Nuva, Akaku Nuva and Miru Nuva respectively. I thought that Photok, Solek, and Tanama wore the regular noble versions of the Miru, Kakama, and the Akaku, not the Nuva ones. So they do, my mistake. I guess that's what happens when I go off of memory rather than checking BS01 first.

  8. Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted on here, but now I'm back with a theory about Kraata formation. This theory will explain the different processes the Makuta used to create Kraata, but first we need to establish some facts. 1.) We know that before the Makuta evolved from biomechanical antidermis to gas/energy antidermis that they could produce Kraata, but the process was "lengthy and yielded weak kraata" (BS01). 2.) After their evolution "the Makuta found that they could create superior Kraata and in much less time, though creation of the slugs would weaken them for a short period of time" (BS01). 3.) "Antidermis can regenerate even if parts of it disperse or are destroyed, but not quickly enough to survive outside a container" (BS01). I think that before their evolution the Makuta would grow the Kraata from an exposed area of their tissue, willing that tissue to bud off from itself and form the slug. This growth process would take time and be fraught with errors (imagine scar tissue growth in humans) explaining the "lengthy" and "inferior" aspects of the process. This growth would most likely occur in a specially shapeshifted area of the Makuta's armour, such as the various Rahkshi spines on Teridax's Shadow Titan form, in order to protect the growing Kraata. After their evolution this process became more streamlined. Doing away with the exposed area within a growth chamber the Makuta would simply allow some of their essence to leak from their armour. Once a sufficient amount had leaked they simply willed it into solid form, creating a Kraata. This would be a much quicker way of creating Kraata. Also by creating its entire body at once, it would contain fewer errors and so be a superior specimen. Additionally, as the Makuta in question used up some of their Antidermis to create the Kraata they will need time for it to regenerate itself, explaining why they are weakened for a short time after creating Kraata. So what of you think? Any problems, comments or suggestions?
  9. It was because the powers they used were different. To create a Toa Seal they combined their elemental powers, but when they healed Graalok they were actually sacrificing some of their Toa Power to heal her, not their elemental powers.
  10. The only place on Spherus Magna that I can remember that is like a polar ice cap is the Northern Frost. It's the area way up north that the Element Lord of Ice ruled over before/during the Core War (it was part of Bota Magna post Shattering). As far as I know there has been no mention of a "southern frost", but Spherus Magna is so vast and so under-explored in the storyline that there might well be one.
  11. For me, it has to be higher tolerance to weight and pressure. It fits with the other nice and simple Matoran traits we have seen without being too complex (e.g. Getting heavier or lighter at will) or too vague (e.g. Resistance to gravity in general).
  12. And yet more reasons to love Comixology! Really happy these are up, I never got the chance to pick these up and so never read the exclusive stories, but now I can! Yay!
  13. Yup. Very interesting image this, as was the trailer. Daleks from all over the series, but I think the most interesting is the Pregenitor Daleks in the background. The one on the left looks like the Drone Dalek, but the red is darker and more metallic. Moffat said that they had "moved on a bit" since their last appearance (which gained a lot of ridicule for the bright primary colours) so I think this is a good move. I still think that different colours for different ranks is a great idea, and this dark, metallic, more scary version should work well. But the one on the right is the most interesting of all. Is it just a trick of the light, or is that a BLACK Progenitor Dalek? What rank would that be? Classically, the black Daleks were the supreme, but as that was already established to be the White Dalek it will be interesting to see what black turns out to be. Also had anyone else noticed that little device on Amy's finger? What could that be? If it was included in this image I think it should be important . Lots of cool things to speculate on here, and this is just an image! The Trailer has even more to look at and think about!!!
  14. Well done! I've always thought Portal Lego would be fantastic, and this looks just that. Fantastic. I especially love the modular test chamber design, you could have a lot of fun with that
  15. Yeah, it was the Great Beings who made it, although I'm sure Mata Nui could have made more if he wanted to. As for the Kraata thing, we know that antidermis can strengthen other beings (e.g. Brutaka) but it may not necessarily have an affect on Kraata as they are already made of antidermis. I think this one is something to ask Greg, if he returns that is...
