There are a lot of things about G1's lore and the attributes of people and things that I'm still confused about and want the answer to, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
I put together a list of what I wanna know about G1 BIONICLE. If you know, please tell me! ^^
1. Did the Toa Mata have hands?
The Toa Mata sets seemed more like robots than biomechanical beings, you know? But what confused me the most was their arm and hands. I don't know if you noticed, but, with the exception of Pohatu, all of the Toa Mata have this arm piece. The piece you put into the lower end (Tahu's Flame Sword, Gali's hooks, Lewa's axe, Onua's claws, and Kopaka's Ice Sword), are they a part of the arms, or are they detachable accessories? I've seen Kopaka, Tahu, and Lewa detach their tools, but I haven't seen Onua or Gali do the same, and I'm assuming Onua's claws are his hands. Also, Pohatu, Tahu, and Lewa have the same hand piece with 2 prongs sticking out, presumably fingers. In BIONICLE: The Game the Toa (except Gali and Onua) had hand like these. So, were these their real hands?
2. How did the Toa Mata regenerate their organic tissue?
As we know, after Teridax put Mata Nui to sleep, the the canisters that contained the hibernating Toa Mata were launched onto the surface of Auqa Magna, but a malfunction occurred that caused the canisters to roam the waters aimlessly until Takua summoned them to the Mata Nui island. The Toa Mata's organic tissue decayed over the years, but doesn't that mean that they died or something? So, when they awoke on the island, how did they regain their lives and organic tissue? I've seen an animated vid that showed Pohatu's arrival, and his tissue regenerated out of nowheres.
Also, how were the Toa Mata constructed, both mechancial and organic parts, when they were being developed on Artakha?
On a side question, I know that they Matoran, Toa, and Turaga and whatnot are biomechanical, but in what way? Do they have a mechanical skeletal frame with the muscles and organs covering that and with exoskeletal armor? That's how I see it.
To my knowledge, nothing tells you that the beings in BIONICLE were biomechanical. In fact, I thought that they were all robots, and I bet I'm not the only one!
Also, are the Glatorians and Agori biomechanical, too?
3. Where is "down" in the Matoran Universe?
We've seen maps of where the islands and continents are in the Mata Nui robot, and we've seen side-view maps of the Mata Nui robot, but those show that "down" is literally the back side of the robot, in terms of gravitational "down." Is this accurate? Did the Great Beings design Mata Nui with artificial gravity so that things don't move around like crazy while he was moving around in the universe?
4. How did the Matoran get rebuilt?
As odd as this question is, I'm still confused how it was done.
Since the Matru Matoran build is how the Matoran looked prior to being put into the Matoran Spheres, I'm assuming that's how the Great Beings designed them to looks like (and I assume the Turaga, too, since Dume had the same build). But they were diminished due to being in the Spheres, and this was their body build for some time. I understand that, but this is what I don't understand: Since the Matoran were biomechanical beings, how where they rebuilt, and what was used to rebuild them? I always thought the remains of the Bohrok and Bohrok-Kal were used.
5. How accurate are the MNOGs and movies to the story's continuity?
For a project of mine, I need to know the 100%-accurate details and continuity of the G1 BIONCILE lore. BIONICLEsector01 said that both MNOG games were semi-canon, but what parts were and weren't canon? And what about the movies? How accurate are they?
I appreciate your help with these questions I have. Thanks. ^^
