Promotional Comics

Challenge of the Rahi

As a result of BIONICLE's popularity, many companies such as McDonalds and Lunchables asked BIONICLE to make little promotional comics for their products. Numerous small comics were created that fit in between the regular comic storyline.

McDonalds Comics

Lunchables Comics

Lunchables also had a set of promotional comics. They were slightly shorter than the McDonald Promo Comics and were a kind of in-between-scenes for the comic In the Grip of the Morbuzakh, and were actual parts from Trial By Fire.

Papercutz Comics

Other Promotional Comics

2015 Promotional Comics

Each character bio of the 2015 Toa on the relaunched website featured a promotional comic of the Toa collecting their respective Golden Masks of Power, and then combining with their Protector for a powered-up mode.
