  • In the lego movie they had an easter showing a promotional poster of the Toa Mata and the story's continuation was left at a cliffhanger. Could BIONICLE return? Due to the fact that a new constacton theme is tobe annpunced at NYCC, it's all the more possible.

    • Well they did said the new construction set is to be similar to Bionicle and Hero Factory

      It wasn't really that much of a cliffhanger.

      Really, the only information we have going for it is the news that there is a new constraction theme next year.

    • Yeah dem stars. I don't think anyone would have gotten livid about the ending of bionicle (btw was about five times as long lasting as the average popular lego theme) without the stars being the last sets. Yeah even for an agori build they were bad. It least to me they were.

      Now looking at the legit picture it looked very 2005 ish. Could this mean getting the toa version of all the Rahaga sets?

      Story wise I am pretty satisfied with bionicle. The ending left only a few out of the seventy subplots un resolved (over seventy is quite literal, look it up I don't know how people are able to carry that much info on one fictional universe in their brain with school and work) much like teen titans. So even if it isn't stupified I don't think it's is necessary. Unless of course they bring a satisfying MAKUTA Teridax form, which I will get, four of.

      As a MOCist I think that, for Av-Matoran builds, they're the best of the lot. Mainly because we got armor and stuff on the figures.

      Yeah, it does seem very 2005-ish in art style, and the people on TTV said that the box was green. A prequel would be interesting, but I don't see a real "team" lineup in the images -- notwithstanding there are probably more sets than just the ones in this box.

        Loading editor
    • I see what looks like a line of more titans than usual. And I wish if it is coming back if the finding of this info came out later, I didn't get a chance to complete my "What would happen if bionicle came back" which would have Michael Bay have Tahu sign a contract to have it come back and you see what's coming next. Speaking of 2005 year, one of those looks a LOT like a visorak.

    • I'll chime in by saying that, yes, TTV is preeeetty confident that this is legitimate news based on talks with various different sources. That being said, we are not directly affiliated with Lego and, as such, could not swear to it beyond a shadow of doubt. All we have to go off is what we've been told by others (although we do trust those individuals). So a certain level of skepticism would be good to maintain purely for the sake of your mental health. :P

      THAT BEING SAID... we're pretty sure it's real and I'm onboard the hype train. I do have some concerns, though, about the handling of BIONICLE as far as both the sets and story are concerned, but I trust Lego to not decimate the brand.

      It'll probably use the HF build system as a base, though, which may anger some people.

    • The sets and environment look sinister enough for that not to be a worry for me. Also this piece of info makes the proof seem even more legit. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ho_yJGymZlo unfortunately the thread was deleted by I did see it, it was legit.

    • From the pic, the sets do look like a prequel. Especially that spider-like creature. I'm no expert about them, but that could be a Visorak. If they're doing something about the Toa Hagah, I'll be extremely happy. Their story just begs for more details, even if their backstory was well-explained.

      Plus I want to see Gaaki as a Toa instead of a Rahaga. She's one of my faves.

    • Oh my goodness this news has made me so excited! I have so many BIONICLE sets and definitely would buy some more if/WHEN they return! Only problem I see is that now I've gotten into lines like MARVEL Super Heroes and am interested in buying sets from that and other themes too, which will stretch my wallet thin.

      According to Greg Farshtey on the LMB,"I checked with LEGO Shop on this. I've been informed that they were doing maintenance on the site and that the link to the Coming Soon page was simply an error on their part. If you search it now, it should take you to the Hero Factory section, like it always did before."
      Perhaps they were supposed to link there after the official announcement and not before.

      Hopefully it will be one of the last because I found the bionicle movies to be atrocious frankly, the second one was one of the worst films I've ever seen in fact.

      They had actually originally planned on 2 more movies, but because BIONICLE had decreased so much in popularity and was gaining no new revenue, they decided to cancel both and cut the story short.The entire second movie was supposed to be focused on the maze. Shame we never got to see that.

      I totally agree with that video as well!

      In fact the Hero Factory "Movies" weren't really movies, more like episodes since they were all like only 30 Minutes long each! So if they were actually as long as BIONICLE's they'd probably be a little better, and even at that they were still fairly good except.. *Cough-Cough "IFB" Cough-Cough*.

    • @Bioniclezilla76: Honestly, BIONICLE's story isn't as complex if you're into it more then others are. It's really not hard to follow even from a distant standpoint. And Hero Factory's storyline may have freedom, but really, there is no story. We go from mission to mission - the fire villains to the Savage Planet to the Breakout to the Brains to the Pacific Rim-creatures, and if the series continues, it'll probably continue on that way. I had some hope with the Breakout series, because it actually had some form of continuity - Von Nebula's back? The villains from before are here? Well, that's really cool! There's continuity! And the premise itself was pretty satisfying. But really, that was it! The Breakout ends, the conflict is calmed down, and there was no continuity after this. It's new missions with new villains that you have no chance to learn anything about. And as for the protagonists, we haven't seen any new protagonists/Heroes for three years. And really, the ones we have now don't do much and you can't really respect them. They're either annoying, boring, clichéd, or possess some other trait that just renders them unacceptable. So Hero Factory's storyline has had no build-up, and its expansion is simply into the unknown, as each mission that the Heroes go on has no real form of continuity. That's my view on Hero Factory's storyline, and while BIONICLE's story may be somewhat complex, it is still a very good story that takes us to places that we'd never expect.

    • Starscream has a point, guys. Bionicle just had (HAS, I hope) that pull to it, the stories behind it and everything. It was an entire world you could just lose yourself in, reading the comics or watching the movies. I always loved it, and I always will.

    • I like Hero Factory but Bionicle is simply better. Hero Factory's story just isn't sound, and IFB was just an awful episode. All the characters are unlikable and/or annoying. Not to mention that they do the thing that nobody should ever do: They attempt to replace the main character WHILE HE'S STILL THERE. And while the Bionicle pieces are delicate and inferior to the Hero Factory pieces, that's only a small factor.

    • The Invasion From Below episode featured an entirely new set of voice actors, all who made almost all Heroes sound absolutely monotone and alike, with no personalities and a score of puns to get under your skin. It was just so boring, and so painful to watch. The plot, which is in total shambles, makes little to no sense. At the beginning of the episode, Evo says that they need battle machines to go against the new threat. Okay ... were these things in existence before? Couldn't you have used them during the Brain Attack? Or even the Breakout? Maybe they were just invented, but they never said this, so my assumption is that these things were around for a little longer then we think.

      By the very end, I remember that when they were with giant Queen Beast-creature, they make a resolve with it that holds up until the Queen's eggs are inadvertently put in danger again. What do the Heroes do? They start attacking again! Yes, the Queen Beast was the one who restarted the attack, I know. But they just tried to make peace, and when the accident occurs, they scrap that proposition completely. I understand that they were doing it for their own safety, but the continuity holds up so poorly that huge decisions like these transform in only a few seconds.

      Invasion From Below is definitely the worst episode yet. I'm saying this because my theory is strictly related to it. I believe that one of the reasons BIONICLE is returning is because of the declining interest in Hero Factory. Everyone, look in LEGO catalogs. They've got all these series, like Ninjago, for instance. And as long as the series is here, it shows up in the catalog. That's what happened with Ninjago: just about every set, if not every set, showed up in the catalog. Hero Factory, on the other hand, has been fading out of the catalog. Starting with Breakout, not all of the sets appeared in the catalogs. I could be wrong on this, but as time went on, Hero Factory became a smaller figure in the catalogs as well. They didn't have a section for it on the first few pages (there was no "Hero Factory: Pages 11-13"). And on top of that, the fact that Hero Factory went so far with Invasion From Below with ripping off Pacific Rim was a clear factor to me that LEGO is either running out of ideas (which I highly doubt, because honestly, they do have quite an imagination), or they were trying to give the audience something that they're familiar with so they would be more interested in it. And thus, the interest in Hero Factory would be rejuvenated. It gets to the point that the creatures in the line look exactly like Kaiju, and obviously, the battle machines concept is based off of Jaegers. Ask yourself this: why else would LEGO base Hero Factory 6.0 (I think that's what we're up to) off of Pacific Rim? They've got a huge imagination. I'm not saying that LEGO itself is losing interest, I'm saying that Hero Factory has been around for four years now, which is about half of BIONICLE's lifespan, and people are losing interest. LEGO created Star Wars to get more people interested in LEGO, and then they created something original afterwards, BIONICLE. When BIONICLE ended, they created another original theme, Hero Factory. Whether you think it's silly or not, guys, it is original. But you can tell that things are slipping around when an influence from a completely different franchise comes in "for reasons unknown". But I think I know why. BIONICLE is coming back because Hero Factory isn't holding up as well.

      If I'm wrong, which I could be, Hero Factory is doing well in LEGO's eyes and will co-exist alongside BIONICLE when it returns. Why BIONICLE is returning is something I can't answer at that point. My biggest theory is the declining interest in Hero Factory, so if that's not true, then it'll be interesting to find out the answer. But that's my opinion on what's going on now with Hero Factory and BIONICLE. We'll see what happens.

      We'll then, I dare you to summarize the entire story. Though the video I linked showed me that Lego was doing what they did what they were doing with hero factory that they did with every other lego theme, set up a premise and have kid's imaginations make their own story. I don't think we should compare Bionicle to HF because they are very different. All lego sets aren't about the story, but the premise. Bionicle was just a very successful experiment. If you are going to compare BIONICLE's story that was so detailed that even people who did say they could follow could not remember every single piece (especially the Marhi story) then why don't we compare it to space police. Space Police's story: Intergalactic police arrest intergalactic aliens for committing crimes. The end. Power Miners story: The earth is going to implode and people come down into the inner earth to fight the jerky monsters who are causing it to happen. Aqua Raiders: People attack undersea creatures in order to drill and mine. Why don't they get the hate Hero Factory gets? Why do they have to be bionicle? Theses are questions you should answer if you are going to criticize Hero Factory's story. Though BIONICLE's story is far superior to any of those, I think it's more of a pro on BIONICLE's part than a con on their parts. Though HF could avoid making the characters annoying and trying to create a story if they can't, and trying to avoid the unfortunate implications of Hero Factory being evil...

      That does seem right on the money. It's ok if they do nothing original with original concepts and do what they did with every theme and let kids have them, but the concepts need to have some originality in them.

      I understand. Hero Factory is very much fading into obscurity (Legends of CHIMA is DEFINITLY the reason for this) and honestly, even though I am a big fan of HF (and Invasion from Below too, I consider them different brands) a reboot (with a better, stronger and more coherent story) will be the only way to save the theme. They did this once this very year (With IFB!) but the actors and weird story was what caused it to fail. Honestly, I do want to see Threshhold return, but, that is a very rare chance. And look out, because Advance is making 2015's episode, and it WILL be a continuation of the newly-born Invasion from Below universe. Bionicle's return is very real, and the two could co-exist (FINALLY THE BIO/HF WAR WILL STOP!!) but, that's just my two cents.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I don't see any reason Bionicle and HF couldn't coexist, either. I'll always choose Bionicle first, just because it's what I grew up with, but I still like HF (Especially Breez) and see no reason it can't continue.

      There is a giant robot with a bunch of smaller robots that was built to recreate a universe with humanoid aliens.

Then some other good guys went and found this cool mask and used it to keep the brain alive until the first good guys restarted his heart and brought him back to life. But the bad guy won and kicked the brain into the cool mask, sending it to another planet, where it got a smaller human body that found a larger body and beat up his old body and made everything awesome.

      That's it. In fact, the entire story of the Toa Mata (which presumably we're getting in the reboot) is summarized in the second sentence. I managed to leave out an entire story arc (the Metru Nui arc) which is there for people who want to follow the story, but the kids who don't know the story don't necessarily need to know the tremendous backstory before they make Tahu kill a spider. It's just there to enrich the experience for the diehard fans.

      That's just the point. The story is awesome, but it's superfluous. The ultimate summary of the story is that there are good guys who protect innocent people from bad guys.

      Now, I did make a Deadpool-style summary of the entire story a while back, which is less than two pages, which I could summarize even more, but I'll let you read this version first, because it's funny:

      So the story of BIONICLE begins when six containers wash up on the shore of a tropical island somewhere in a giant robot, because one of the natives put six magic rocks in their locations. Heroes get out of the containers and help the natives fight against the animals, while searching for some fancy headgear.

      But there’s also a bad guy who wants to defeat all the good guys, so he sends some other creatures that can roll up into balls. The heroes fight them off, but a group of them take over a village and launch stuff out of their heads that sticks to the villagers’ faces that takes over their mind. The other heroes go and remove the mind-controlling stuff from the villagers’ faces, and then they get upgraded.

      Then, the little guy who found the magic rocks discovers a gold helmet with his friend. The bad guy wants this, so he sends robot dinosaurs armed with staffs and piloted by evil slugs to recover it. The little guy’s friend is killed by one of the dinosaurs, and the little guy puts on the helmet and starts to look like the heroes. He goes into the bad guy’s base and defeats him in a game of lacrosse, and the two guys merge together and open a doorway into an old city.

      Then, these really old guys who guide the villagers tell the heroes about when they were heroes. They were all given magic rocks and got transformed. But the bad guy, who was a lot younger, had taken over the mind of their village elder, and reprogrammed all the police robots, who fired energy disks from their mouths and were supposed to make sure people were working, into killing everybody in the city. So, the heroes all go outside the city, discover the tropical island, and fight the police robots.

      Then they return to their city, but find that it has been taken over by four-legged spiders that launch spinners off their backs. They poison the heroes and mutate them into half-creatures that also can launch spinners off their backs, but they get saved by some little guys who can also launch spinners off their backs. One of the half-creature heroes decides to join the spider armies and captures all but one of the little guys, while the remaining heroes and little guy go and search for an old healer guy who can turn them back to normal. Then this big fight starts between most of the heroes and the little guys against the spiders. The hero who had joined the spiders goes back to the heroes and makes all the spiders leave. Then the heroes roll all these balls that have workers in them to the island, and wake everybody up. That is the end of the old guys’ tale.

      Then someone tells them that the giant robot they all live in isn’t feeling well, so the people that are heroes at the moment go to rescue him, but get captured by some dudes who have glowing teeth and spiky backbones. Then a bunch of villagers, led by the little guy’s friend who got killed by the dinosaur but was revived, decide to fly in the containers to the volcanic island where the heroes are, but they get struck by lightning and become heroes. They fight the dudes with glowing teeth and help the villagers by shooting energy spheres at each other, in order to find another helmet that could wake up the giant robot.

      But the helmet falls into the ocean and the heroes, being perfectly rational, jump into the water to find it. Fortunately, they can all magically breathe water. The helmet gets found by the underwater villagers, but is then taken by evil mutant fish people who launch squids from cannons. They fight the heroes. Then, one of the heroes decides to die to activate the helmet, which teleports his friends from a bad situation, and the giant robot gets awakened.

      The original heroes then go into this really big swamp and fight the bad guy’s friends, who are evil bats and insects. While everyone is fighting, the main bad guy gets into the controls of the giant robot and boots the original controller out inside the helmet that revived him. The controller flies off to a desert planet, where he builds himself a body, and unites the villages to fight against evil rock people and the desert creatures. They all go off somewhere and fight another giant robot body, which the controller takes control off. Then, everybody fights, while the two giant robots beat each other up. The giant robot controlled by the bad guy is defeated, and the desert planet merges with two other planets to make one big planet.

      And everyone lives happily ever after.

      Except the wild animals, who are killed.

      And the mind-controlling stuff flingers, who are drowned.

      And the slug-controlled dinosaurs, who are broken apart.

      And the police robots, who are all killed by the spiders.

      And the spiders, who got blown up by a volcano while everyone was in the swamp.

      And the spiky dudes, who lost their bodies and got fused together in one of those unfinished story serials.

      And the evil bats and insects, who got struck by lightning.

      And the bad guy, who was killed with a rock in the head.

      Well, not everyone lives happily ever after.

    • Okay, I just skimmed that since I know the story, basically, but the ending was hilarious. That does make me think, though. With Teridax getting half a planet in the head... Is this another Makuta that's taken his place? And are the so-called 'Skull Spiders' Visorak with a new name, or what? To quote a certain superhero, I hate it when I don't know things.

      Logically, taking a rock to the head wouldn't actually kill a Makuta, no matter what the size of his body is. His consciousness is Antidermis, he could just float out and inhabit the corpse of a Visorak for a while, then mutate it and clone itself and make the Skull Spiders (which are a lot smaller than Visorak compared to the Toa, so I'm not counting on it.)

        Loading editor
    • Okay, I'm gonna do the summary. :) (Note: it only follows the cartoon)

      Long, long ago, this dude named Akiyama Makuro created the Hero Factory, a factory that would create robotic Heroes. Thresher, Stormer, Stringer, Bulk, and Von Ness are all created, but then Thresher took a blow to the back and died (I think) after this, Stormer performed the "most awesome move in Hero Factory history" and Von Ness ran away and teamed up with Dark Maker and turned into Von Nebula and all sorts of weird crap happened. Flash forward, these three rookies in the Alpha Team get caught up in a battle against Von Whiny Pants I mean Nebula's motley crew, which ends with Von Nutcase Whiny Pants getting blasted by his own staff. Then, these super powerful Villains themed to fire who somehow are so powerful that the Heroes cannot defeat them (stupid, stupid Makuro) overcome them and Surge dies I mean gets captured. At the same time, Makuro shows off these new dudes who are an Australian who loves Breez and a samurai, who come to the rescue as Surge brutally rips off Fire Lord's hand. Then, we are introduced to Rocka, a HRT agent and the brattiest Hero ever, who comes back from a mission only to go to Quatros and get attacked by Witch Doctor, the Villain we all know (and love XD). The Heroes suit up in animal armor and go save him, as well as battling talking animals enslaved by WD. Finally, Rocka is upgraded with "ancient" armor pieces that look like a Hero's dead carcass and defeats WD. Then, Voltix, a Toa of Lightning I mean Villain, is defeated by the bratty Rocka, and is imprisoned. However, he unleashes a construct of Von Whiny Pants who touches the staff, both unleashing a physics-defying black hole and killing Von Nebula at the same time. Oops. The Legion of Darkness, Dark Maker's Villain team, as well as Von Nutcase's gang (and their clones), talking animals and hundreds of Villains all escape. The Breakout has taken place, leading to a new widespread upgrade being created. The Legion of Darkness is captured, and Black Phantom is defeated by Daniel Brat, and the Heroes win. Again. But not before BP gets the blueprints to his master Dark Maker, who, days later, creates an army of techno-organic Brains who mutate several animals and a giant electric dragon the size of a Beast. These creatures attack, and the Alpha, Beta and Gamma teams come out and fight them, as Surge gets enslaved and unleashes Blank Heroes, Makuro's darkest secret. The Heroes defeat the easy-to-destroy drones and free Surge, as Daniel Brat finds a weird jetpack out of sheer coincidence and then defeats the dragon. And his name spontaneously appears on it. Creepy. Then, robots come down to fix the giant hole the dragon made, and then encounter a swarm of Brains, ready to attack again.

      And Dark Maker sends in an army.

      And Nex and Stringer come late to the party.

      And the HRT shut down.

    • Okay, that was kind of funny. Another thing I never understood about and that always annoyed me about HF, though, is revolving Breez throughout the waves. Like Breez was 1.0, then 2.0, then gone, and gone again, and in 4.0 wave 2, and Brain Attack 5.0 (Which I think was her coolest upgrade yet), and I can't remember if she's in 6.0 with the minifigs. With Bionicle there was (in my memory) ALWAYS a female hero present. And they did it with a couple of other Heroes, too. I never understood that.

      Alright, it's been a long day and I've been thinking WAY too much about SW. For a second I thought that last line said Jawablade...

      I think that, for a "summary" you included too much detail (such as the names of everyone.) With my rehash of the BIONICLE storyline I went along the lines of the "May the 4th be with you" short -- it gets all the major plot points out but leaves out a lot of portions (some of which I forgot since I haven't seen that short in forever.)

Von Ness became monster- von nebula he got some villains, and try to use the black orb to destroy hero factory. failed, he was in the black orb. a bot got energy crazed and with three more villains attack hero factory. alpha team upgraded, and defeat them. aldous witch got quaza crazed and sent to quatros. became witch doctor he corrupted animals to get the quaza of the star. the heroes catch him in the last minute. voltix defeated, but freed all villain. alpha team with the new handcuffs catch them again. core hunter plans to destroy the world, surge kill him. 'dark maker' created brains and they control some species. they attack. they freed. by a mistake a worker drop something to cave. the monsters came out, after unsuccessful try to peace, they destoryed by the cave. the point that is there is no story. villain attack, heroes catch all over again.

      Unfortunately, Sullyfrogmsrady is probably right. But I do have a similar theory: LEGO and Greg Farshtey were very good at holding up the BIONICLE storyline for a full decade. While it may be a continuation of the previous story, I do agree that it will have more of a reboot tone. Or at least the general storyline will feel more like a reboot. BIONICLE ended almost five years ago. Now, there's younger people and new fans who might not have looked into the established continuity. So while it will still exist (which is my opinion), the storyline will take off from a standpoint that will feel fresh. I'm sure these people and fans will have heard of BIONICLE - if not, then this reboot doesn't really matter to them. But when they see that the line is returning, it will surely grab a lot of attention. The story will hopefully be continued on by Greg, who will expand the universe and give a treat to the old fans. And he'll continue it in a way so that the newer audience of younger people and new fans can be exposed to characters in a new light. Hopefully, both goals can intertwine nicely, and if the new audience wants to look into the story more, then they can look at what's come before all this. That's what I think when it comes to the "reboot" tone it may have.

    • Looking at Legos patterns it looks like if bionicle becomes popular enough they'll get a tv show. No I don't consider Hero Factory's series not a full animated one, not because of how bad it is (if i did consider it to be an animated series, it probably probably wouldn't even get into my top thirty worst animated shows) it's because the time is inconsistent per episode and they come out so far apart they're more like specials. The bionicle series I was thinking more like ninjago.

      It's actually geewunners, but whatever. You are correct, though, those sets look EPIC. Kopaka is kinda bulky, and does differ from the fact that he's skinny like the others before, but he's the 2nd-in-command, so I expected that from a "newly-refounded stereotypical hero team."

      Also, LEGO can't spell their own product. Reboot, much?

    • I've noticed the mask system from the first BIONICLE sets has been incorporated slightly into the new sets. In the sets with the golden mask pieces (Not the Creation Mask thing, but the other new ones), they appear to be able to connect as a sort of add-on to the Toa's normal masks using the hole and pin system I stated earlier.

        Loading editor
    • I'd like to add my opinions about the sets and whether or not this will be a reboot.

      I'll start off by talking about the teaser picture: the Kanohi Mask of Creation. Apparently, this mask is going to play a major part in the story. Previously, the Mask of Creation was said to be worn by Artakha, one of the most powerful beings in the BIONICLE storyline. It features various designs on it to represent the many cultures in the BIONICLE universe. Ultimately, I feel that the mask is very similar to the way it had been described before, which is great.

      The next thing I'd like to talk about is whether or not the upcoming sets will be a reboot or continuation of the previous story. I am certainly hoping that it's a continuation, but right now there are so many factors that really balance out both possibilities. So I'll list them here:

      Continuation: Previous Characters - Mask of Creation - Ignika (Mask of Life) on the Set Boxes - Skull Kraata (Kraata were introduced in the 2003 storyline) - The Protectors (I'll explain this one)

      Reboot: The Golden Masks - Old Toa Nuva Designs - No Takanuva

      There are probably a few more for each one, but I'll start going over them. So we will be seeing the original Toa Nuva, except for Takanuva. The return of the Toa Nuva makes me think it's a continuation, but this could very well wind up going with the reboot as well. And the fact that there is no Takanuva also tells me that this could be a reboot - or that Takanuva's busy elsewhere. The presence of the Mask of Creation and the Mask of Life, which appear in the artwork below and the set boxes, respectively, may mean that this is a continuation. The Ignika was not released in a set until 2008, so maybe this will mean it's part of the story here, since it had no presence with the Toa Nuva's first appearance. The Mask of Creation was first described at around the same time that the Ignika was released. Also, the Skull Kraata. This character was originally set to be called the Lord of Skull Spiders, but the name was later revealed to be Skull Kraata. Kraata were first released in 2003. They were the creatures that operated the Rahkshi. The fact that we'll see the "Skull Kraata" here is very, very interesting. This is definitely a major factor as to why it will probably be a continuation. However, we do see some very similar designs to the 2002 Toa Nuva sets, particularly with the masks. And speaking of which, the six Toa Nuva sets will all feature a golden version of their mask, which is very similar to the 2001 storyline where they went on a quest for the golden masks. So the fact that we'll see similar designs is a small hint for a reboot, but another quest for the golden masks really has me thinking. The final thing I'd like to point out are the Protectors. In the upcoming sets, there will be six characters known as "Protectors". We don't know who they are, what their affiliation is ... they're really mystery characters as of now. We've never seen anything like them before, which leads me to think that they'll make this into a continuation. Ultimately, my only theory is that the Protectors are the Element Lords. While this theory stuck with me for a while, the big downturn to this is that there are seven Element Lords, not six. So who these characters are is completely beyond me. We'll just have to wait and find out.

      I do believe that the upcoming BIONICLE sets will be a continuation. At least, that's what I hope.

      The third and final thing I'd like to talk about are the actual sets. I really do think that, for the most part, the sets look awesome. Sure, they use Hero Factory parts, and I was hoping that they'd go back to a few more of the parts that they had before. But really, I saw it coming anyway, so it wasn't a huge disappointment to me. For the Toa Nuva, as I said before, we'll see some designs that are similar to those of the original sets from 2001/2002. Even some of the weapons bear some resemblance to what we've seen before. This time, we get to see three of the six characters as titans, which is something LEGO doesn't really do. I am slightly dissatisfied with some of the color schemes, such as the mix of brown and white for Pohatu and the black, gold and silver for Onua. LEGO started to mix various colors together during the Hero Factory Breakout line, where characters like Furno were colored red and white, Surge was colored blue and green, Breez was colored green and white ... it wasn't a horrible idea, it was just a bit odd. But hey, it's not the worst thing in the world, and it probably won't ruin the sets. I am very happy that each and every one of the Toa Nuva have unique designs, although the only real con of mine right now is the fact that Tahu's sword and Kopaka's shield are made from the same parts. This, too, is not a big deal, though.

      For the Protectors, I actually really like their designs as well. All of the designs are for the most part fairly similar, yes, but this is something that LEGO did earlier on from around 2001 to 2005. The weapons for the Protectors are actually pretty cool looking, too. Overall, they look like they'll make great sets as well. And for the Skull Kraata, it doesn't look that bad. It has a unique design, although I really can't say much about it just yet. The face does look like it's based off of a Hero Factory upper-chest plate, which should be okay. I don't have a full-opinion on it yet, I probably will when we get to see more of the sets.

      So that's all I have to say for now about BIONICLE's return. Hope you guys enjoyed my overview, and as always, UNITY DUTY DESTINY!

This character was originally set to be called the Lord of Skull Spiders, but the name was later revealed to be Skull Kraata. Kraata were first released in 2003. They were the creatures that operated the Rahkshi. The fact that we'll see the "Skull Kraata" here is very, very interesting. This is definitely a major factor as to why it will probably be a continuation. However, we do see some very similar designs to the 2002 Toa Nuva sets, particularly with the masks. And speaking of which, the six Toa Nuva sets will all feature a golden version of their mask, which is very similar to the 2001 storyline where they went on a quest for the golden masks. So the fact that we'll see similar designs is a small hint for a reboot, but another quest for the golden masks really has me thinking. The final thing I'd like to point out are the Protectors. In the upcoming sets, there will be six characters known as "Protectors". We don't know who they are, what their affiliation is ... they're really mystery characters as of now. We've never seen anything like them before, which leads me to think that they'll make this into a continuation. Ultimately, my only theory is that the Protectors are the Element Lords. While this theory stuck with me for a while, the big downturn to this is that there are seven Element Lords, not six. So who these characters are is completely beyond me. We'll just have to wait and find out.

      I do believe that the upcoming BIONICLE sets will be a continuation. At least, that's what I hope.

      The third and final thing I'd like to talk about are the actual sets. I really do think that, for the most part, the sets look awesome. Sure, they use Hero Factory parts, and I was hoping that they'd go back to a few more of the parts that they had before. But really, I saw it coming anyway, so it wasn't a huge disappointment to me. For the Toa Nuva, as I said before, we'll see some designs that are similar to those of the original sets from 2001/2002. Even some of the weapons bear some resemblance to what we've seen before. This time, we get to see three of the six characters as titans, which is something LEGO doesn't really do. I am slightly dissatisfied with some of the color schemes, such as the mix of brown and white for Pohatu and the black, gold and silver for Onua. LEGO started to mix various colors together during the Hero Factory Breakout line, where characters like Furno were colored red and white, Surge was colored blue and green, Breez was colored green and white ... it wasn't a horrible idea, it was just a bit odd. But hey, it's not the worst thing in the world, and it probably won't ruin the sets. I am very happy that each and every one of the Toa Nuva have unique designs, although the only real con of mine right now is the fact that Tahu's sword and Kopaka's shield are made from the same parts. This, too, is not a big deal, though.

      For the Protectors, I actually really like their designs as well. All of the designs are for the most part fairly similar, yes, but this is something that LEGO did earlier on from around 2001 to 2005. The weapons for the Protectors are actually pretty cool looking, too. Overall, they look like they'll make great sets as well. And for the Skull Kraata, it doesn't look that bad. It has a unique design, although I really can't say much about it just yet. The face does look like it's based off of a Hero Factory upper-chest plate, which should be okay. I don't have a full-opinion on it yet, I probably will when we get to see more of the sets.

      So that's all I have to say for now about BIONICLE's return. Hope you guys enjoyed my overview, and as always, UNITY DUTY DESTINY!

      I'll start off by talking about the teaser picture: the Kanohi Mask of Creation. Apparently, this mask is going to play a major part in the story.

In the upcoming sets, there will be six characters known as "Protectors". We don't know who they are, what their affiliation is ... they're really mystery characters as of now. We've never seen anything like them before, which leads me to think that they'll make this into a continuation. Ultimately, my only theory is that the Protectors are the Element Lords. While this theory stuck with me for a while, the big downturn to this is that there are seven Element Lords, not six. So who these characters are is completely beyond me. We'll just have to wait and find out.

      I do believe that the upcoming BIONICLE sets will be a continuation. At least, that's what I hope.

      The third and final thing I'd like to talk about are the actual sets. I really do think that, for the most part, the sets look awesome. Sure, they use Hero Factory parts, and I was hoping that they'd go back to a few more of the parts that they had before. But really, I saw it coming anyway, so it wasn't a huge disappointment to me. For the Toa Nuva, as I said before, we'll see some designs that are similar to those of the original sets from 2001/2002. Even some of the weapons bear some resemblance to what we've seen before. This time, we get to see three of the six characters as titans, which is something LEGO doesn't really do. I am slightly dissatisfied with some of the color schemes, such as the mix of brown and white for Pohatu and the black, gold and silver for Onua. LEGO started to mix various colors together during the Hero Factory Breakout line, where characters like Furno were colored red and white, Surge was colored blue and green, Breez was colored green and white ... it wasn't a horrible idea, it was just a bit odd. But hey, it's not the worst thing in the world, and it probably won't ruin the sets. I am very happy that each and every one of the Toa Nuva have unique designs, although the only real con of mine right now is the fact that Tahu's sword and Kopaka's shield are made from the same parts. This, too, is not a big deal, though.

      For the Protectors, I actually really like their designs as well. All of the designs are for the most part fairly similar, yes, but this is something that LEGO did earlier on from around 2001 to 2005. The weapons for the Protectors are actually pretty cool looking, too. Overall, they look like they'll make great sets as well. And for the Skull Kraata, it doesn't look that bad. It has a unique design, although I really can't say much about it just yet. The face does look like it's based off of a Hero Factory upper-chest plate, which should be okay. I don't have a full-opinion on it yet, I probably will when we get to see more of the sets.

      So that's all I have to say for now about BIONICLE's return. Hope you guys enjoyed my overview, and as always, UNITY DUTY DESTINY! 

      rEBOOT CONFIRMED

      Like I said, there's a lot of evidence that points against it and towards it.

      Eh Greg Farshtey confirmed it

      Source?

      I lost the link but yesterday on lego messageboards on chat forum with him

      Greg would not give anyone this type of information right now. I won't go into things like look back in your history for it, but I'll assume right now that you're mistaken and that Greg nor anyone else has confirmed this for the public.

      I'll start off by talking about the teaser picture: the Kanohi Mask of Creation. Apparently, this mask is going to play a major part in the story. Previously, the Mask of Creation was said to be worn by Artakha, one of the most powerful beings in the BIONICLE storyline. It features various designs on it to represent the many cultures in the BIONICLE universe. Ultimately, I feel that the mask is very similar to the way it had been described before, which is great.

      The next thing I'd like to talk about is whether or not the upcoming sets will be a reboot or continuation of the previous story. I am certainly hoping that it's a continuation, but right now there are so many factors that really balance out both possibilities. So I'll list them here:

      Continuation: Previous Characters - Mask of Creation - Ignika (Mask of Life) on the Set Boxes - Skull Kraata (Kraata were introduced in the 2003 storyline) - The Protectors (I'll explain this one)

      Reboot: The Golden Masks - Old Toa Nuva Designs - No Takanuva

      There are probably a few more for each one, but I'll start going over them. So we will be seeing the original Toa Nuva, except for Takanuva. The return of the Toa Nuva makes me think it's a continuation, but this could very well wind up going with the reboot as well. And the fact that there is no Takanuva also tells me that this could be a reboot - or that Takanuva's busy elsewhere. The presence of the Mask of Creation and the Mask of Life, which appear in the artwork below and the set boxes, respectively, may mean that this is a continuation. The Ignika was not released in a set until 2008, so maybe this will mean it's part of the story here, since it had no presence with the Toa Nuva's first appearance. The Mask of Creation was first described at around the same time that the Ignika was released. Also, the Skull Kraata. This character was originally set to be called the Lord of Skull Spiders, but the name was later revealed to be Skull Kraata. Kraata were first released in 2003. They were the creatures that operated the Rahkshi. The fact that we'll see the "Skull Kraata" here is very, very interesting. This is definitely a major factor as to why it will probably be a continuation. However, we do see some very similar designs to the 2002 Toa Nuva sets, particularly with the masks. And speaking of which, the six Toa Nuva sets will all feature a golden version of their mask, which is very similar to the 2001 storyline where they went on a quest for the golden masks.
