Sig Service!
I'm opening up a sig service! Anyone wanting a spiffy signature just let me know. Tell me what kind of font you want, what color, what you want it to say, and what image you want, if any.
NOTICE: I will not create custom images. Also be advised that there is a character limit to sigs.

hey, toa jala, its me, your buddy Vakira's back from the dead. Uhh,could ya help me with my userpage--Vakira 22:44, 10 December 2012 (PST)


Hi Toa Jala! I see you uploading prototype Kanohi pictures. So how about to start joint task of adding all prototypes of bionicles? I have all sources of all prototypes, we just need to upload them on BS01. You can upload all of Kanohi pictures(I'll give you the links if you need them). Also you can help me adding any other prototypes, not only Kanohi. What do you think about it? --External Image 20:48, 4 March 2016 (CET)

Re: Prototypes

Firstly. I know these covers are not prototypes(and I already have requested deletion of the BL6 image), but original BL2 is literally a prototype! Look at Piraka, especially at Reidak and Avak's faces - they all are prototypes! What about the Voya Nui Matoran - they were in the same magazine with the Piraka and "Igniters" prototypes. But if you think some "proto-images" are the same as the original sets, you can request deletion of them anyway.

Secondly. ALL prototypes are leaks, except BfP prototypes, Galileo Mistika and some other. But they were leaked many years ago, so I don't think now it may be prohibited. And all of my uploads are the real prototypes. Also, if Dorek would consider images as the "unofficial information", we need to delete them all and fuse gallery:prototypes with gallery:concept art. --External Image 15:50, 7 March 2016 (CET)

Re: About the leaks

I'll create section "Kanohi" in the gallery:prototypes. But since Dorek said about the leaks I'm afraid of adding "white background prototypes" now, so I will upload prototypes from the expositions and TV shows. What about the magazines? --External Image 09:47, 8 March 2016 (CET)

I mean the retail LEGO catalogs with the early sets(prototypes) like that German catalog with Inika prototypes. I think I'm going to upload only official magazines/catalogs, but I don't know what to do with foreign catalogs. Any ideas? --External Image 18:04, 8 March 2016 (CET)
I mean some of them may be unofficial, since that information coming not from LEGO directly. Anyway, we need the direct decision - add magazines or not. --External Image 18:35, 8 March 2016 (CET)
Hi, Jala! Bad news. I figured out that leaked prototypes are prohibited on the Brickipedia. Good news: since we can't upload all the prototypes in there, I created the big archive of all G1 prototypes. I uploaded it on MEGA. Biggest part of the work is done, so now we need to finish the gallery. Also, should I add the set pieces(from the Brickipedia prototypes page) to the BS01? --External Image 19:07, 11 March 2016 (CET)
About the wikis: I don't know can we talk about them or not, but since BS01 has some wikis in "affiliates", we can discuss it without any problem, I guess. I'll add some prototypes today. Anyway, we need to wait Dorek's answer and then delete all unsuitable images. --External Image 12:06, 14 March 2016 (CET)
Hey, Jala! Can I ask Greg Farshtey some of your theories? I think they are very interesting. --External Image 10:48, 18 March 2016 (CET)
I'll ask him the questions that have no answer/hint. I think gravity/green nova blasts are confirmed, and GBs can't be humans anyway. Also, I'll upload a bunch of protomasks today. --External Image 10:17, 19 March 2016 (CET)

Re:End of the Brotherhood

Thanks for your compliments! That story is one of the first things I wrote that I'm still proud of today. Making my stories fit in with canon is always a challenge, but I find it rewarding. Thanks for reading! --Angel Bob (talk) 21:22, 28 March 2016 (CEST)

Medium Sets

I'm going to go ahead and say make the medium set category. Don't know why Dorek isn't responding. Regarding what Surel-Nuva mentioned about Canister sets: How about Canister sets being a subcategory of Medium sets? ζoxHistories External Image

That's a tough call, since the Gen. 2 sets are packaged so differently. But yeah, why not? :P -- Toa Jala Order a Sig! 07:36, 30 March 2016 (CEST)
My big issue with size categorizations is that they're not internally comparable. Small from 2001 is different than small from 2015. I'd prefer price points. But if we use sizes, sure, make the categories, I'm not fussy. -- Dorek Talk External Image 07:42, 30 March 2016 (CEST)
I've just been doing this according to the way they appear on SetsNav. :/ Plus, accounting for the growth and eventual shrinkage of the canister sets, plus economic inflation, the ballpark prices probably changed over the years. The 2010 "canister" sets were the same size as the 2008 and 2009 small sets and were barely more expensive. -- Toa Jala Order a Sig! 08:02, 30 March 2016 (CEST)

I think doing it by how they are on the Sets Nav is reasonable. It's at least consistent. Also: the difference in packaging from Gen 1 to Gen 2 is what turns Canister Sets into a subcategory. Canisters are basically medium sets, they're just special on their own because they came in canisters and not boxes. ζoxHistories External Image

That sounds logical to me. So here's my next question: do I go back now and add "[[Category:Medium Sets]]" to all the pages in the Canister Sets category, or just leave it as is? -- Toa Jala Order a Sig! 08:46, 2 April 2016 (CEST)

If we were to follow the example of, say, the Matoran Category... then yeah... The various kinds of Matoran are listed as sub-categories and each character is in both the Matoran category and their respective (pre)-Matoran category. ζoxHistories External Image

Should that include the Stars? They weren't really "medium" IMO because they were the only sets. I personally don't think that the Stars should have a distinction besides "Canister," but it's your call. ;) -- Toa Jala Order a Sig! 06:05, 6 April 2016 (CET)

Yeah... Freaking Stars always making a mess >_> I'd go for that: them only getting classified as "Canister" sets. Unless someone more knowledgeable airs an objection, leave 'em as they are. ζoxHistories External Image


I asked Greg some of your theories...

Q: Can the Element Lord of Sand control crystals, since sand is made of tiny crystal fragments?

A: No. Sand is created by the disintegration of rocks, not crystals.

Q: Was Tren Krom created after Annona? Since GBs did not remember her at all, but her image was to be deposited in their subconscious?

A: Annona existed before the GBs did. Tren Krom wasn't created until the robot was being built.

Q: Can you use Ice and Shadow together to achieve Absolute Zero?

A: Not to my knowledge, no

Q: Can it be possible that telepathic voice that told Matoro to put on the Ignika belonged to Velika? In The Kingdom Alternate Universe, that Great Being never went into exile, and Velika was just a Matoran. As a result, the voice never instructed Matoro to act, which led to Mata Nui's permanent death.

A: That was not my plan, no

--External Image 11:33, 22 April 2016 (CET)

Dang it! Ah, well. I have to admit, I never expected these theories to go anywhere, much less to the man himself! I'd've been happy just knowing that another fan read them. Thanks for reading and thanks for asking. The answer to the one with Annona and Tren Krom seemed ambiguous, though, so I'll keep that one. :) -- Toa Jala Converse 05:38, 25 April 2016 (CET)


Wow, I'm flattered. :P Actually, I have been wondering for a while why the element pages don't credit the people who determined their official colors. Finding a source for plasma will be difficult and nearly impossible -- this was a long time ago on BZPower, and the forums have since been wiped several times. The original question might still be saved somewhere in the data for the old threads, which is on BZP. I couldn't find it, but I also don't trust this computer's search function.

The Earth Tribe stuff will be easier -- the relevant posts are already linked as references on the page. (Although personally, I'm not sure canonizing the Earth Tribe was one of my better ideas; it caused more headaches than it was worth, in the end.) Hope this is helpful! --Angel Bob (talk) 07:13, 6 May 2016 (CET)

PointlessQuestions is my LMB username. Sorry for the confusion. --Angel Bob (talk) 23:13, 7 May 2016 (CET)

I won't shed any tears for the Earth Tribe - I'm the one who led the push to decanonize it. :P It was a cool idea, but the way Greg implemented it just did not fit with established canon, and it created more problems than it was worth. --Angel Bob (talk) 20:19, 28 August 2016 (CET)
