Okay, listen as I ramble.
The Before-time. We all know it. But do we know WHAT IT IS?
Not exactly. There are references to the before-time with the Bohrok saga. They want to return Mata Nui to the Before-time.
But wait, we have a conflict. Listen to the MoL trailer (I used the Kal CD). The narrorator says, "In a time before time", etc...
What do y'all think? WHAT IS THE BEFORE-TIME?

I Ain`t Got A Clue ! According To Some Topics In Other Forums That 04 Is Todo WIth What Happened Before The Toa. So I Don`t Really Know Til Then. If Thats True, We Might Found Out More Later This Year Or The Next. I Hope.

.........You could find out what happened before the Toa came by playing the first bionicle game.....takua saves all the turaga and gathers the toa stones and summons the toa,but the before time....maybe Mata-nui was a desolit island in the before-time......

Kagayaki-Dragon I Knew That Bit About Takua Summoning The Toa And Helping Turaga But What Happened Before That And After ???? So Many Questions. I Can`t Wait Til We Find Out More From Lego About That. Like A Missing piece Of The Puzzle

some people think that bionicle is a story of before the biological creatures began to evolve. therefore bionicle is before our time, there fore beforetime.

"A Time Before Time"
is like saying, "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away."
It sets the story apart from human beings in 2003. The "before-time" is an enigmatic bit of lexicon whose true meaning is yet to be discovered. Two different things. Greg said this: Think about the Bohrok's mission, and what the island would have looked like had they completed it.

Dude This s Complicated. As Long As lego (Hopefully) Reveal It To Us Soon Enough.

I asked him that very question Makuta Master.
TNN675:What exactly is the 'before time'?
GregF:That information we are not revieling yet,but think about what the Bohrok were trying to do think about what the island would have looked like if they suceeded.

Well I Can Picture A Barren Waste Land, A Total Blank Canvas In Which You Could Re-Create The Island Content (Plants etc) From Scratch. thats WHat i Could See If The Bohrok Won. Kind Of Saying That They Want To Destroy the Islands Current State And Re Make It To Their Own....
Jul 17 2003, 11:49 AM
Hmm... As others have said (maybe not so much in this topic, but others, but maybe this one to) I think it was a barren desert land (Pohatu's Paradise
) And then Mata Nui came, and made it a paradise, and then his brother Makuta came down, etc.....

I believe that before Mata Nui came and brought peace to the Tohunga, before Makuta came, there was the Before-Time. Bohrok, Bohrok Va, Bahrag, Rahi, and various other creatures fought constantly. The island was a wasteland, ruled by the Bohrok - the only ones with elemental powers. The Tohunga existed, and could use tools - unlike the other creatures - and their bodies were in the 2003 form. But still, tohunga were endangered. They lived in Koros, but had no written records. Some key events, with new characters, happened in the Before-Time (what, I have no idea - maybe something to do with older Turaga?), and then Mata Nui came and brought peace, and the Tohunga slowly forgot about the Before-Time. If the Bohrok had succeeded in their mission, they would once again be the rulers of the wasteland.

The before time is probably just the time before Mata Nui came to the island.
Jul 17 2003, 06:16 PM
Maybe it was a time were everything was peaceful with Mata Nui as the islands protecter watching over little matoran and other creatures trying to get through their life and the bohrak and other creatures lived in harmoney. There were no Toa infected masks or Makuta, It was just a peaceful time.

What I mean is the trailer says "IN a time before time," but the Bohrok seek to change everything to the way it was in the before-time.
Whats the diff?

WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE BEFORE-TIME:
- Someone, or something, probably alot of them, lived in Mata Nui, underground, before the Tohunga came.
- It was probably before Mata Nui came.
- The Bahrag existed in the before-time.
- Those somethings made some of the constructs on and under Mata Nui.
Oh, and Bisc posted a topic like this a long way back, and it listed all of the clues about the bfore-time that he could scrounge up.
Look here, please.

Who created the Bahrag before the before time? This is as confusing as trying to figure out the 5th dimension...
Jul 19 2003, 03:24 AM
I THINK THAT THE TIME BEFORE TIME ON MATA NUI WAS DARK AND SHADOWED
Jul 19 2003, 08:07 AM
Probably what DOBBIE ROBBIE said but a bit more like a wasteland full of disease and terror the matoran are enslaved and Makuta is laughing until mata-nui comes and drives makuta away and rewards the matoran who eluded capture and worked to find things out he made them the turaga
in conclusion dark and fearful like lord of the rings when sauron was in power. And harry potter
its a good beginning anyway I thing we shall see in the 2004 storyline we'll have to wait

It could just be a case of a misused line. Because stuff like that is said in movie trailers a LOT.
It is kinda confusing though...as that would mean that "The Before Time" would be a time before a time before time.
Jul 19 2003, 08:41 AM
the before time was before mata nui came to the island and it was a barren wasteland then mata nui changed that and made the matoran....

GAMECUBEPLAYER1 IS PROBABLY RIGHT,BUT I STILL STICK WITH MY "DARK AND SHADOWED"
Jul 21 2003, 06:04 AM
I think LEGO doesn't even has it's answers.
Just forget about the beforetime and concentrate on the aftertime.
It's like a question of, did chicken came first or eggs?

I would think it would be a type of Golden Age. All peaceful, and advance technology. And then, Makuta came, and ended the peace. I always had a wierd idea that the Bahrag were good.
Jul 21 2003, 08:50 AM
This actually isn't the first time that phrase has been used. It was used before we knew what the Bohrok where! If you buy an old set like a Rahi or Toa Olda, then it comes with a booklet that says:Before the begining of time, the island of Mata Nui was a tropical paradise. Then a shodow of fear and darkness fell across the land. That shadow's name was Makuta.Does this mean that the Bohrok swarms were trying to destroy Makuta? Because it said that before the begining of time, Makuta wasn't on Mata Nui! Maybe the Bahrag were trying to take Makuta's evil away, and that's why they called the Toa brothers!
Jul 21 2003, 08:55 AM
I think it was the bionicle equivelent to our Pre historic history. Only more peacfull before makuta. The turaga were kidnaped and held prisoner. Takua helped them escape and then he summoned the toa with the toa stones. Hope that helps
Jul 21 2003, 09:16 AM
I wonder what will happen, maybe the bohrok will come back and well see what happened that they went to sleep in the first place.
