Shapeshifting is one of the powers all Makuta possess. However, shapeshifting seems to require a certain amount of mass to be converted to energy. Additionally no mass can be created, so the main universe Makuta need to absorb matter in order to shapeshift into bigger forms.
The main universe Makuta so far always aquired said matter by absorbing it with their Shadow Hands as far as I know.
So the question is:
Are the Makuta from the Melding Alternate Universe who don't have shadow powers able to absorb matter? If yes, how? Do maybe all Makuta regardless of shadow or light powers have an alternate way to do this?
