They intended to make a third robot but didn't. So do you think they expected their giant robot project to reform Spherus Magna would fail, or if they expected the prototype robot to be restored and used in place of it?

I don't think they had time to build the third robot, but fortunately knew that the prototype could substitute in its place.

So, it's a failsafe for the failsafes of a failsafe? Geez, these Great Beings love their backup plans.

While they clearly didn't fix the prototype for Mata Nui to use it, I wonder if they did somehow arrange for him to be able to use it while they were waiting for his return.

I think they guessed he could figure it out on his own without their intervention, which he did.

I think they did. 

 

....think about the "locks" to get into that chamber at the end of Great Maze. They were all designed for a member of the MU to get in with ease, but a SM native would be confused. The would only make sense if they planned on having a member of the MU come to that area. 

 

That was the area that revealed Mata Nui's true purpose and allowed him to find the power source to power up the robot. Why would they leave the power source laying around to power up the prototype, along with the information to do so hidden behind locks only a MU inhabitant could get into, if they didn't want Mata Nui to power up the bot? Doesn't make much sense otherwise IMO.

Maybe they did that last minute, they saw the 3de robot wasn't going to be finished in time and quickly placed the power source there in the hope someone would find it and power up the old robot

Or maybe in secret sometime after the Shattering, if any of them were on Bara Magna.

I tend too belive that they did build it! The third robot was just stashed ofworld somewhere. There was some major 'problem' and it simply couldn't be fixed in time. ( this is all part of my idea for Bionicle's next chapter. Which I'm not going to tell you anything else about). I've been desperately hoping that no one would bring up the third colossus, in case it ruined my chances of using it in Bionicle gen 2 when I eventually get a job at LEGO. I've even got a code name for the project planed out and everything!But I think the idea of the Great beings final false safe in the Valley of the maze and prototype robot reboot makes a lot of sense. ( I think the GBs hade OCD in fake safes).

They probably did, seeing that they placed clues for its use on the planet.

 

They really loved their fail safes.

Yeah, that was some good evidence that Fishers found that Mata Nui (or maybe Teridax, had he not turned evil) was meant to enter the Valley of the Maze.

 

As for Northmarch's dreams, I must say, good luck, and even if you don't get that job, write your ideas down! Even if it doesn't become canon, you can still make a great story.

The Great Beings probably weren't expecting Mata Nui to use the Prototype after it's malfunction.

I personally think that after the prototype did not work, the GBs just left it out out on Bara Magna to rot for eternity.

Don't doesn't seem right. Besides they said the prototype bot scattered the planet. But if you look at the map of the key places in Bara Magna, the robot was just there the entire time.

They might not have planned it when they were first building it as a prototype; after all, they had no idea at the time whether the concept would even work. But once they figured out a way to make giant robots work, and did not build the third, it's pretty obvious they intended it, yeah.

 

I wouldn't quite call it a failsafe IMO but a repurposing.

 

Could be wrong though; they may have hoped the prototype would work so well it could serve as one of the two giant robots that would do the job.
