What if Bionicle would 'restart'? Then there would't be much to do for a while before it comes back to the serials. And younger fans like me(I'm 13, I wasn't able to get the sets from the first couple years) could get the chance to actually own 'new' old sets. It's crazy, but it could be done. That way the old Bionicle fans can get a fresh start to Bionicle again, and newer kids won't get confused because it would start from the beginning.

Some questions on pages 349 and 350 got skipped, or just have not been answered yet.

Just a quick question, if Bionicle came back, would the story serials be finished?
No idea. If it were up to me, BIONICLE would not come back by picking up the old story, but as something new (a reboot or something else like that). As someone else pointed out in one of the threads, the original BIONICLE audience is mostly in high school and college now, and to succeed, the line is going to have to appeal to today's 8 and 9 and 10 and 11 year olds, who know nothing about it. So picking up old story and forcing them to have to go back and do all that research to know what is going on probably wouldn't be a good strategy.
What if there was a way to market the story to the original fan group? No idea how to do that, considering most/all wouldn't buy the sets, but...
I think the ideal situation for bionicle coming back would be to make a "sequel series", kinda like what "legend of korra" is to "avatar: the last airbender". (have you heard of those, greg?) Legend of korra is set in the future of the old series, so the old fans (who, if bionicle comes back, will mostly still want to keep up with the story) can have an interest in it, and also set far enough in the future that the new fans don't have to read up on all the old lore in order to enjoy the new story. While knowing the lore of the first series is helpful, it's certainly not necessary.
2) That is certainly one direction you could take, but by no means the only one.
What are some other options, and which of them would you prefer? What do you think of just repeating the original bionicle all over again?
Does that mean that the Red Star USED to work? To be specific, did the Red Star actually revive people and transport them back at one point in the Matoran Universe's lifetime?

Questions about a certain Toa of Plasma's status.
Moving on to the next subject: Great Beings.
One last question.

My concern with that is that any kid could, without having to do much research,find out that Mata Nui is the island, etc. And so if all we are doing is retelling the same exact story, then that kid is going to be bored to tears because he already knows the twist. So no, I don't think just starting the same story over again would be the way to go.

There was never any plan for that book, Charlie. The decision to cancel the book series came long before I would have started thinking of a new plot.

So, when would it have stopped working? And why?

Erm, Greg, your BZPower sig reads "Bionicle Returning 2015". I highly doubt this is your doing- I thought you should know.

Also, there is someone impersonating you on Tumblr, using the "askgreg" name/thing that you used to use.

Well, I've got few questions:
1) Did you really want to put dinosaurs at the end of 5th BIONICLE movie, or maybe this is just a joke?
2) What influence can Makuta's viruses have on a living person?
3) If BIONICLE get back, would you start writing all new stories?
4) If someone wearing the Mask of Undeath dies and then he cames back from death, he can complete his last objective. And then what? He dies again? And what if this objective is already completed by someone else (for example defeating some EVIL guy)? Can the "undead" still live and do other things? What if someone will harm or injure, or even kill the "undead"? Can he regenerate himself or use mask again to resurrect? Also, can undead talk or eat (take energy) or feel emotions?
Okay, maybe more than few auestions.

I've taken a look at that one's blog. He does this solely for entertainment purposes of the tumblr BIONICLE fandom, his blog does state he's "not actually Greg" and he's not been discriminating so far, neither did he spread false rumors. I don't think this should be taken too seriously.

Hi Greg! I just have a couple questions regarding the bionicle story.
1: Is there a general statement you could give regarding the difference between a toa and a toa nuva's level of power over their chosen element?
2: Is there any part of the bionicle story you specifically don't like or like less looking back that you included?
3: Other than just the fact the sets had changed a lot in design and the like, was there any reason in particular that the Toa Mata looked so different from pretty much any toa team that came after?
