WHAT THE... Gregory T Farshtey, you telling that you got fired after the planning on Mask of Light, then why the Mata Nui had you wrote the books and stories about Marhi Nui, Voya Nui ETC???!!?!?!? Had they hired you again, or... (Not to be rude) Is you that responding, just a guy who is cheating us, and telling you is the old great Greg, just for fun, and moneys???? I love Greg's stories, and work! And i have translated (just for fun) the whole story on http://www.bioniclestory.com/ called Into The Darkness, but please tell me my friend, how you can be involved in LEGO if you isn't involved?
I think you're mixing me, GREG WEISMAN, up with this other Greg, whom I have never claimed to be. I worked (briefly) on Mask of Light, but was let go...
I never met Gregory Farshtey, but I have a vague memory that he was doing the comics, right?
so is Elliot still in the bionicle comic thing? (ps you still havent answerd my question in the archive in bioniclestory.com
I don't know who Elliot is.
I don't know what bioniclestory.com is.
UPDATE: Okay, I just visited that site. I don't think I've ever been there before. And I don't even see an archive section. Besides, I haven't worked on Bionicle at all in YEARS.
I have been reading more about the Toa Nuva. I read that when the Toa Mata were drifting in the ocean for 1000 years their organic tissue dissolved. When they arrived on Mata Nui and put them selves back together did they look like that before or was that the result of being in the water for so long?
I don't remember the answer to this question all these years later, since as I've said MANY times, I only briefly worked on Bionicle. And frankly, I'm not sure I EVER knew the answer to this particular question.
Where did lhikan lives when he was a matoran?
I don't remember. (Assuming I ever knew.) You have to understand that although I immersed myself in Bionicle at the time, I only worked on the project for a very short period before I got fired for yawning. Since that was somewhat painful, I divorced myself mentally as much as possible from the property. So my memories aren't the clearest.
DO you think that the Lago company can hire you again? And did you come up bionicles or did the Lego company did?
The Bionicle god is a great guy named Bob Thompson. I was just a hired gun for a very brief time. (I had nothing to do with the creation of Bionicle - just with plotting the story to "Mask of Light".) Somehow, I doubt Lego will be bringing me back any time soon.
When the Toa Mata were finding the masks why did they get the noble style masks that the turaga had not the great version. Like the Noble Huna that Turaga Vakama had instead of the Huna that Toa Vakama had?
I'm afraid my memory of all things Bionicle is pretty sketchy. Sorry.
If the Lego company had to combind the Bionicle's world to our world what whould happen? How would they react in our world? Would the Toa's be our friend or wht?
Didn't you just ask this?
If the Lego Company had combind the Bionicle world to our world what would happen?How would they react to our world?
I'll leave that to your imagination.
If you had one of the Toa's power what would it be.
Uh... I don't know. Water, maybe? Air?
What is the bionicle story about anway? I've seen the movei's that I have but I still don't understand what it's about. And why Arn't into bionicle any more?
It's been so long...
To answer your second question first, I was -- basically -- fired by Lego (for yawning). It left a bad taste in my mouth, so I don't follow the property anymore.
As to what it's about, it's about a race of robots. Beyond that basic bit of info, I can only recommend reading the comics, checking out the website or the movies.
In all of the Bionicle books which characters you had really like the Most?
It's been SO long since I worked on Bionicle, that i can't even remember the names. I liked the little guy that became the Bionicle of light. And I was partial to his mentor as well. And I liked the Ice Guy.
Do the Rahaga as toa
going to be in latter bionicle books/comics/movies/other.
I don't know. I'm no longer involved with Bionicle.
Since this question concerns a project Greg worked on that was not Gargoyles, I apologize if I should not be asking it here.
It was to my great delight that I saw Weiseman's name as one of the story-editors for the recent direct-to-video release of Bionicle: Mask of Light. I'm rather curious as to how you managed to find yourself in such a place. Since Disney indirectly supported the project, did 'they' point you in that direction? Or is there another reason?
It had nothing to do with Disney.
I interviewed for the job -- an interview set up by my representation -- and I got it. I hit it off quite well with Bob Thompson, who is the Greg Weisman of the Bionicle Universe. I had a great time working with Bob and with writer Henry Gilroy.
I simply have to ask -- Did you really help make "Bionicle: Mask of Light The Movie"? This may be not be related to Gargoyles, but I'm a fan of both and I can't believe you did both . . . if you did that is.
I saw it on the credits and my brother and I were just shocked to see your name.
PS. To Mak and Matt who wrote before today, Goliath didn't have the Phoenix Gate to take his clan out of 994, he only had 'half' of it, Demona had the other half. He couldn't change the past either once he retrieved the other half (Remember 'Vows'); A reminder of 'Bushido:' "Gargoyle must not fight Gargoyle." This may not be the case in all clans, but it should hinder alot of potential conflict.
I'm not sure why you find it so hard to believe, but yes, I share story credit on "Mask of Light" with Bionicle creator Bob Thompson and with writers Alistair Swinerton (as Brit a name as I've ever heard) and my pal Henry Gilroy. I had a great time working on that project (though I wasn't on it long as a Lego executive fired me because she believed I was being disresepctful, which I wasn't) and some of my ideas do survive into the final product.
Cool news on the Bionicle thing! hwat role do you play in the production of it?
I co-wrote the original story with Bob Thompson, Henry Gilroy and Allistair Swinnerton. I was Henry's story editor on the first couple drafts of the screenplay.
