Where do you find inspiration?

Particularly in BIONICLE, there always seemed to be some nods to science fiction and fantasy, whether it be between Krana/Facehugger similarities or the presence of dragons on Metru Nui. What creative elements from other stories or media do you incorporate into your own narratives?


Well, the first thing to keep in mind that is a lot of things – like the krana – did not come from me. They came from other people on the story team. But the fact is that, like all genres, sci-fi and fantasy have tropes. So it’s not unusual to see those tropes in different stories within those genres.
