Okay, I was browsing BZPower today, and a news article on the front page dirrected me to a topic. GregF gave the members a preview of the first Bionicle Legends book, and it's really interesting. Heres the info off of BZPower:

  Six powerful figures stood on the shoreline of the once-great city of Metru Nui. They were the Toa Nuva, heroes whose power and skill had defeated the darkness and allowed the Matoran return to the place that had once been their home.
All around them, Matoran were hard at work rebuilding the city. It had been damaged centuries ago by a massive earthquake and later overrun by Rahi beasts. Most of it was in poor shape, some completely ruined. Still, this did not deter the Matoran. They were determined to make the city habitable again as quickly as possible.
The Toa Nuva and Takanuva, Toa of Light, had spent most of the past few weeks assisting in this effort. Now they had been called away by Turaga Vakama and Turaga Nuju for a private conference. From their expressions, the Toa could tell they were not about to hear good news.
Vakama led them to an isolated spot where Turaga Dume was waiting for them. Dume had been living in Metru Nui, waiting for the Matoran to return, for over a thousand years. In that time, he had researched and analyzed the disaster that had struck the city and the events that followed it. He looked at the Toa Nuva with undisguised desperation in his eyes.
“My friends, I do not know just how to say this,” he began. “One thousand years ago, the Great Spirit Mata Nui was struck down by treachery and cast into a deep sleep. It is said that you Toa Nuva are destined to one day awaken Mata Nui and restore light and peace to the universe.”
Tahu Nuva frowned. They knew all this already. Bringing the Matoran back to Metru Nui had been the first step toward awakening the Great Spirit. He and his comrades were impatient to discover what they had to do next to fulfill their destiny – if Dume knew, it was time to tell them.
“I have studied the stars, few and dim as they now are,” Dume continued, gesturing toward the darkened sky. It was true that few points of light could be seen, and those that were there had hardly any glow. “I have consulted with Turaga Nuju, who was once a talented interpreter of the messages to be read in the heavens. He agrees with my findings.”
“Which are?” Kopaka Nuva asked, impatience creeping into his voice.
“Mata Nui is not merely asleep,” Dume said quietly. “My friends, Mata Nui is dying.”

Its really suspenseful!

I know that this might be a stupid question, but why this big shock? I dont understand it.

maybe its because I'm not that much into Bionicle :)

Shock because this means there is somewhat a time limit.

Heh....people say Bionicle is stupid, when it has one of the most intricate (is that the word?) stories I've ever known.

Or, MN was dying, Makuta put him to sleep to spare his pain, and is now trying to either:

Inject his own power into MN, but is overpowering him.
Take MN's power and get revenge on the Toa for trying to stop him, then, possibly, return that power, sacrificing himself.

That's what I think.

Greg mentioned somewhere that after the war with the visorak, the toa metru took all the matoran to Mata-Nui, and Dume decided to wait until they returned.

Understandable, since not everyone has to like bionicle. You got to admit, though, Bionicle is pretty proffesnally made, and the storyline is just as good (or even better) than clasic myths. I really think they've done a great job, looks even better for 2006!

If fluoride isn't dangerous, why was it added to the water in the Russian gulags and by the Germans during world war 2 to make the prisoners "apathetic" to what was going on around them?
