Talk:Lewa (Generation 1)

From BIONICLEsector01


What is our source for the pronunciation of his name? In both the Mask of Light movies and in the gen2 material, it is pronounced LEE-WAH instead of the LAY-WAH we have listed here. Intelligence4 (talk) 21:19, 6 April 2016 (CET)

Encyclopedias, guide books, Greg, etc. The movie is the whole reason why people are always aggro about pronunciations. -- Dorek Talk External Image 21:41, 6 April 2016 (CET)
which ones though? i know this is a little pedantic, but all our actual audio sources say EE instead of AY, including other references besides just the movie. it seems a little odd that we'd follow a print source for a pronunciation instead of an audio one.
another thought, we only have the netflix clips and the online animations for g2 lewa, so since the two are supposedly separate, we should change our records for g2 at least, since there's no conflicting sources.Intelligence4 (talk) 06:03, 12 April 2016 (CET)
G2 should be LEE, I'll have to dig up the encyclopedia for G1, but given how many times it was debated on BZP, yeah, it's legit. -- Dorek Talk External Image 22:52, 13 April 2016 (CET)

Did you ever find anything?Intelligence4 (talk) 07:10, 1 May 2016 (CET)

I'm certain no one is too interested in this being brought up again, however I figure I should contribute this at the very least for thoughts on the conversation. I have a quote here from an old friend of mine who had asked Greg about the pronunciation of Lewa's name in G1. The following is from 2010:
Q: Is it Lee-wah or Lay-wah?
Greg: Depends on who you talk to. Seriously, everyone at LEGO has a different pronunciation.
Q: So there's no right or wrong? Cuz I was talking to two BZP friends. One said on BS01 its lay-wah and the other said you told him lee-wah lol
Greg: I have always pronounced it Lee-wah, but I would probably consider the movie pronunciation official.
I've spoken with Swert on this and he's basically given me the full go-ahead to make the switch, but I figure that would be rude and unseemly of me to do. I put this forward for consideration and conversation. Thank you! User:Eljay Johnsen(talk)

A few weeks ago, someone added a trivia point that lewa didn't start using treespeak until he got to mata nui. do we have a source on that? Intelligence4 (talk) 00:56, 14 November 2016 (CET)

Yes. I added, because in the flashbacks of the BL10 he doesn't use the treespeak at all. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 13:18, 14 November 2016 (CET)

"Mysterious voice"

Was it ever clarified who ordered Lewa to take the Sundial to the Archives? Was it Krakua? --- Creep 02:51, 27 November 2016 (CET)

It could also have been Artakha or a Great Being. I have the sense that Greg evenrually answered this; I'd check the Farshtey Feed first. --Angel Bob (talk) 04:22, 27 November 2016 (CET)

Was anything ever found on this? Intelligence4 (talk) 06:41, 15 December 2016 (CET)

It was never revealed, but Greg might be willing to reveal it now. I'm gonna ask him after he anwers the last batch of questions I left him. OnionShark 13:44, 15 December 2016 (CET)

It was a pre-programmed voice by the GBs...

:/ i still call bs on the great beings predicting everything to a T like that. if they were that certain about everything, then we wouldn't have so much variation in all the alternate universes and stuff. anyway, greg said "most likely" it was a recording of the great beings - are we going to count that as affirmative? Intelligence4 (talk) 00:31, 22 January 2017 (CET)
another note on the spot where you made that edit, we should add a citation for what story source that came from - it was the gali nuva blog, right? Intelligence4 (talk) 00:33, 22 January 2017 (CET)
We should always aim to distinguish between firm yes/no answers and uncertain answers--see here. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 01:30, 22 January 2017 (CET)
(Hopefully) fixed link (and added "aim to"). -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 08:26, 22 January 2017 (CET)

I can tell you were linking to a greg answer on the wayback machine, but other than that, the page is all messed up. text bubbles are overlayed on other text bubbles, and everything is huge, it's a total mess. idk if that's just my machine's configuration or if it's like that for everybody, but i thought i'd bring that up just in case. either way, that makes me still unsure of your point as a result lol. Intelligence4 (talk) 08:03, 22 January 2017 (CET)

Oh sorry about that! Hopefully the link is fixed now. If not (I think that copy may not always load correctly) here's the original post. It's a quote where Greg says, "There's a difference between 'feeling at the moment' and a definitive answer." -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 08:26, 22 January 2017 (CET)
haha no problem - it's going to be fun after lego shuts down the boards :) So we shouldn't assume he was confirmed as Great Beings then, right? if so it should be removed from the page Intelligence4 (talk) 08:35, 22 January 2017 (CET)
I always thought it was Artakha... -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 09:43, 22 January 2017 (CET)
that would make the most sense, imo. he was kind of an all-powerful sort of dude, and he would have been in the universe to know what needed to be done to awaken mata nui once again, unlike the great beings - they even programmed a mask to destroy all life if everything went to heck, which i think is a firm indicator that they couldn't have predicted stuff to that level of detail.
