Holy Mata Nui... I'm so glad GregF is alive and trying to contact us Bionicle fans. The disturbing silence over the past -almost a year or so now- when no new serials were coming was a shuddering thought. I'm glad I guessed it right.

Keep in mind that if Star Trek fans had, as a group, said, "No point in talking about this anymore, it's never going to come back," it never WOULD have come back.

And now; our long, long wait is finally over.

I don't think Greg has the authority to end the story. One, Lego left the story going so that they could possibly revive it in the future (there have been several reasons that both BZPers and Greg have speculated as to why this may be). Two, Greg is not allowed to reveal the "true nature of the Great Beings" so he's not just going to reveal everything now. That lends itself to the probability that Lego doesn't want to give Bionicle up, IMO.

Spoiler
Let's Keep Bionicle Alive,Lewa Krom

Quite frankly, it's not Lego's decision. Lego is the one without rights. It's Greg's story, and especially because Lego has given up on the merchandise line, the ball is entirely in Greg's court now. If anyone continues it, it will be Greg.We can hope...

So with secret divulged, will we actually get anymore? Because if he has no power and time to write serials, he should really just reveal who the killer is and more because waiting that long for an answer is ridiculous. End the story so people like me can continue it in their own way.

This. I hope that he will just name the Murderer and maybe give a short synopsis of what was planned. I think then that BIONICLE, for me at least, can finally feel like it has definitive closure. This was a huge step though.-Star

I agree -- but preferably only if Greg seriously thinks he won't have time to finish the unfinished stories. I think it's quite possible he'll find the time. :)

I don't think it would be complete without a closure to the two current serials. There are too many loose ends, not just the "Murderer" mystery. What about the Toa Mahri? The last we heard of them they were walking off following some golden being. And what about some other characters (sadly, I forget which Toa they are) and Gaardus who have found MAVRAH of all beings, inside the Red Star? No, the story needs more completion for a final closure.We just have to have patience, and give Greg the time he needs. He's a human, and his purpose in life isn't to serve us. Not that I am accusing anyone of believing that, but the point needs to be made.Waiting is hard, but I believe that it's worth it.

I have always wondered who the rights to Bionicle belong to now that the storyline has ended. Does Lego still have copyrights on the name Bionicle? If Greg was to license High Moon Studios, etc. to make a Bionicle game, would there be any legality issues with this? Who knows.Anyways, as for the identity of this character:

For the record, I hope this doesn't give anybody false hope as to the return of Greg or BIONICLE or whatever. Greg was nice enough to take some time out of his very busy schedule and provide us with some answers. Maybe we'll get some more in the future, maybe not, but the continuation of the serials has roughly the same probability of occurrence as the world ending in a few months.

It's given most people a "false" sense of hope, Axel. This is BZPower, learn to deal with it. I'm not the smartest person regarding this kind of thing, so I'm not going to bother with my reply as to whether the hopes are really false or not, but.... nearly everyone searches around for some hope to hold on to regarding BIONICLE, and I've learned to expect it by now.

We don't know if the GB is actually the murderer or not, unfortunately. Heavily implied, and would make a lot of sense, but unconfirmed.

He's working full-time on Ninjago, as far as we know. He writes the novels, and graphic novels, is still the editor of the LEGO Club Magazine, and that's without mentioning that he's a father now. He's also writing the upcoming HF novel(s), so that too. He has more important things to do. Bionicle is low priority.

While this is kinda a cool revelation, I gotta agree (at least partially) with Tilius's first point on this one -- I really wish it would've been revealed as a story, and not just like this; as it is it seems slightly pointless. But again, it'll be cool to be able to use this information in fanfics and see what other people create based on this information.It's just a question of "why now?" and "why like this?" I mean, I'm glad it was revealed (though probably not nearly as glad as most people who are, as I was never the biggest fan of Bara Magna anyway so didn't even remember the GB mentioned), as it'll be cool to see what other people do with it. I just wish that Greg would've done something with it in his revelation. But you can't please everyone. Thanks for doing this, Erebus, and Greg for the information. Posted Image

I myself am very pleased with this reveal, but I am even more pleased to receive an update after so long. As Bonesiii said, I guess patience does pay off sometimes. Personally, I hope this isn't the last update we get and I really hope that the story can continue, but for now I'll just enjoy this little bit of information. :DAlso, I strongly support the request to thank Greg for this. :)

Well it feels great to some actual BIONICLE news for a long time! I was thinking, considering Greg probably won't be doing anything for BIONICLE "for the forseeable future" (see what I did there?) I honestly would like him to provide BZPower summary of everything that had been planned in the story; living in a cliffhanger for the past year where Mavrah is still alive is annoying. Anyone else think so?

I agree, and however long it takes, I don't think he will forget about us or never, never have time to write more. It'll come someday, and it's just cynical to depress ourselves and say "Oh! Greg's given us this little bit of information after over a year of inactivity! I guess that means we can't hope for any more, ever. It's just not going to happen, so get your hopes down, peoples." http://www.bzpower.c...tyle_emoticons/default/tounge2.gifIt bugs me when people say stuff like that, because there's no point to it. It's realistic to recognize that Greg can't do a lot. But it's not realistic to say that Bionicle is dead forever and we might as well give up hope. Plus, where's the fun in that idea? Evidence points to more content from Greg in the future. It's a lot more cheerful (and exciting!) if we hope for more, and just sit back, be patient, and let Greg do his job in his own good time.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
