  1. First of all, I've never seen that reading order you made before - I wish I had, it's great and would've helped me out a lot when putting Biological Chronicle together! ^^; Secondly, I think this should help you out: chaoscontrolled123.tumblr.com/post/75012178186/demitsorou-cross-wired-freak-bionicle
  2. I've had this available to read online as part of Biological Chronicle for a while now (https://crosswiredgeeks.com/biologicalchronicle-book1chapter19/), but these scans are pretty nice! Might have to see about replacing mine.
  3. It sells for so much because it was a flop. The sets, particularly the 2016 sets, weren't on shelves too long and weren't purchased by that many people, so there just aren't that many out there to be sold (making them a rarity and driving up the price now that they're no longer available). The final wave is especially rare, since in the US it was TRU exclusive - even Lego stores didn't carry it.
  4. 1) All Av-Matoran live in Karda Nui, except those that were secretly relocated to other islands by the Order of Mata Nui during the event known as the Time Slip. The OoMN erased the memories of these Av-Matoran, and disguised them as Matoran of other elements, in case the Brotherhood of Makuta ever attempted to eliminate all Av-Matoran. Takua was one of these Matoran, secretly relocated from Karda Nui to Metru Nui. 2) Yes, Light is an element, just like Fire or Water. And yes, Matoran of other elements outside the primary 6 exist - in Brothers in Arms we see a village of Sonics Matoran (the village Krakua is from). It's worth noting that Av-Matoran are a bit different from other Matoran, though - they have limited access to elemental Light powers (as opposed to other Matoran, who have no ability to use elemental powers), they can change their color, and some of them eventually turn into Bohrok. 3) Their names were not changed when they were corrupted and mutated. Hope that helps! Btw, if you're interested in reading the story material you missed out on, you can read the entire Bionicle story (books, serials, etc.) at https://crosswiredgeeks.com/biologicalchronicle/
  5. The novelization of Legends of Metru Nui specifies that he was speaking to his own reflection: https://crosswiredgeeks.com/biologicalchronicle-book4chapter45/ Dume was not working with Teridax, and Miserix had already been exiled at the time the film takes place.
  6. It's in the works, but things in my life have been a little hectic lately, so I haven't made much progress on it recently. I promise it will come eventually! Thanks for the link! I'll take a look. James (who runs WoH) actually sent me the Introduction to the cancelled Legends #7: Invasion shortly after he obtained it; I added it to the "Compete" version of Book 7 a while back. I hadn't seen the cut MNOG dialog, though; I'll take a look at that. Thanks for the write-up!
  7. Oh hey, those appear to be my scans of the Bohrok TCG booklet - glad to see they've finally made it onto BMP. It's a neat little piece of early story material. That 08 history booklet is pretty cool. Haven't seen that before.
  8. Lego winter product officially releases in January, even if some of it often makes it to shelves earlier than that. So 2001 is the year it officially started.
  9. Hey, sorry there haven't been any updates for a while! The world is kind of crazy right now and without getting into personal details, my life's been a little hectic lately. That is definitely still in the works, but I still don't have an estimate for it, sorry! Hey, sorry for not replying to this until now! I'm subscribed to this thread, but I swear, BZP never sent me an email update for this post for some reason... I'd certainly be interested in seeing more of your project! Feel free to shoot me a PM.
  10. I'm not sure about G2 as a whole, but from my experience a number of kids seem to have been introduced to Bionicle by Journey to One. I display MOCs at a couple Lego conventions every year, and I always see some kids react to the Bionicle stuff with things like "those are from that show on Netflix!" Makes you wonder if the success of the line would've been different if they'd led with the Netflix show, rather than ending with it...
  11. Ah, right, my bad. There are at least 3 fan uploads of the Mata Nui Rising video that were uploaded to YouTube on November 3rd 2008, so I'd assume that's the date it came out (maybe November 2nd).
  12. According to BS01, the Rise of Mata Nui video was uploaded on November 24th, 2008: https://biosector01.com/wiki/The_Rise_of_Mata_Nui
  13. Ah, my bad, got that mixed up - thanks for the correction!
  14. The TTV message boards have a dedicated Greg Q&A board where you can post questions. He answers them on his own time, so it might be a while before he gets back to you, but it's the best place to ask him questions like these.
  15. 1. When you say "around", do you mean in a particular location? Or just all the Rahi that existed at that point? The Piraka only joined the Dark Hunters about 7,000 years ago, while Teridax took over the Brotherhood about 70,000 years ago - I think by the time the Piraka joined the Dark Hunters, the Brotherhood wasn't making many Rahi anymore, so most Rahi we know of would have already existed. 2. Zyglak seem possible (we've never seen their encounter with them in the Cord, so we don't know if they reacted to them there as something new or familiar). Karzahni seems very unlikely - when Karzahni met the Matoran that would become the Inika, he knew nothing of the outside world since basically the creation of the universe. It doesn't seem like he'd had other visitors (other than Matoran that needed repair). Artakha Bulls seem perfectly reasonable. 3. I don't know if we have a firm answer to this, but Teridax wasn't a very trusting person - I think he would have had the Vahki on the lookout for any Dark Hunters he didn't specifically know were supposed to be there. 4. Some travel elsewhere, but it seems like most of them stay there - probably due to a lack of resources to travel anywhere else. 5. Just the Skakdi that were part of Nektann's faction, I believe. Those Skakdi are still following the Golden-Skinned Being on Spherus Magna. Any others that made it out of the GSR are probably trying to steal enough to make a life for themselves, if I had to guess. 6. Yes. The Spine Slugs feed off of the Skakdi, but the Skakdi do not get any nourishment in return (it's a parasite, not a symbiote). 7. I'd guess that it's as possible as with, say, humans - some may look very similar, but it'd be extremely rare to find two that were identical. 8. He is technically a Skakdi, but has been referred to in-story as "half a Skakdi" - that's the species he most closely matches, but he's not quite the same as a normal Skakdi. He has no Skakdi powers, for example. 1. The last thing we know is that the confrontation between the Golden-Skinned Being and Annona caused the Mahri to be freed from the GSB's control. 2. Trapped on the Red Star with Kopaka. 3. He died, and was revived on the Red Star. He's still there. 4. The Mahri are now amphibious, and their masks are still the same. 5. When we last saw him in-story, he was ruling over Metru Nui during Teridax's reign. According to Greg, he has since come to Spherus Magna, and is trying to get in the good graces of the Glatorian. 6. He was in the cursed Great Being's fortress. According to Greg, he made it out safely before the place blew up. 7. We last saw Miserix in the fortress as well (and he also escaped before the explosion). Questions about his motivations/plans going forward have no firm answer; your best option for getting one would be to ask Greg. 8. Zesk live there as well, and did not devolve. 9. I would assume that they looked like typical Jungle Agori, but I suppose we technically don't know for sure. 10 and 11: these are probably questions for Greg. I hope that helps! By the way, if you haven't, you should check out Biosector01 - it had the answers to a lot of your questions!
