See the thing is, I learnt to stop asking those stuff on BZP. The only exception was my 'Vezok Bull Rider' topic. When I first returned back to BZP in July, I asked about if the Toa Nuva are in their Karda Nui forms, a question which could be CANONICALLY answered by Greg rather than hearing non canon fan theories
The problem with that is that asking on BZP first gives people time to think it out and come up with good solutions, then Greg can be told of suggestions with reasons laid out. That's been done several times successfully. What you say is good for "this character does X" type questions, but for physics things, it's always better to ask here first. Because notice when Greg does understand something (like if you explain it clearly in the question) he WILL stick to plausible physics a lot.
But really isn't it being like this a LOT cooler?
You mean them being planets and not moons?
Kind of yes, because it's fun to think about why it's nonsensical.
Otherwise, I can't see what benefit there is, no. I'm open to suggestions. Well, I do like the idea of them "somehow" being planets that always stay close and the Bara Magna inhabitants just assume they're moons. And Yalda's idea from the other topic about them only rarely lining up that way but that doesn't really work [Edit: I mean because of not letting the Aqua lock thing work apparently; see below]...
Also, does it mean he's retconning out the old answer about Aqua Magna being tidally locked away? Did the Mata Nui Matoran see Bara and Bota sometimes now? This is probably the most serious problem with it. Physics is physics, but if I face away from you, it can't be that I'm also facing toward you, in Bionicle physics... right?
And where did AM's moon come from? I know it exists but what was the origin of it?
One of the comics. I believe it was the scene where Vakama revealed "you are not the first Toa". I think.
