"This concept poster was done in 2006 trying to envision what the battle in Karda Nui between the Toa and the brotherhood of Makuta would look like. ...He is being chased by an evil looking craft or creature looking like a blend between an “M” for Makuta and a manta ray. ...The fight takes place just next to the “great fall” the water pouring into Karda Nui." Features Av-Matoran spectators.

Ideas for Replacing File:Image-request.png

File:Image-request.png is a blank picture frame, which isn't BIONICLE-related at all. Here are some images we could replace it with:

Deputy Toa

A Deputy Toa is the second-in-command of a Toa team. They serve as confidantes to their team leaders and fulfill the role themselves when their leaders are unavailable.

Known Toa

Kopaka, the deputy leader of the Toa Nuva
Nokama led the Toa Hordika during Vakama's defection

Trivia

  • While most of the Toa team leaders are Toa of Fire, Toa deputies have represented many different elements.
  • Lesovikk was the overall commander of the Toa Cordak,[OGDi: Mar 29 2008, 08.06 AM] while Nikila was considered as the tactical leader.[OGDi: Apr 1 2008, 09:21 PM]



Non-Canon

Sandbox is Non-Canon
Sandbox is considered to be Non-Canonical to the BIONICLE storyline because, although it uses several BIONICLE elements from BIONICLE, the events it portrays were never approved by the BIONICLE Story Team, and are either never referenced in canon media or contradict canon events.
Kanohi Catodra.PNG

Note: I added the "never referenced in canon media/contradict canon events" part because of the fact that the two MNOGs are considered (semi)canon even though they were never approved by the Story Team. ~OnionShark 21:15, 26 July 2017 (CET)

Proto-Squad

The Proto-Squad was an exclusive BIONICLE product-testing program run by the LEGO Group in the United States from 2002 to 2005. Participants in the program, who were drawn from US BIONICLE fans age 9-12, periodically received packages in the mail containing sneak peaks of the BIONICLE storyline, unreleased BIONICLE sets, and exclusive promotional items, all free of charge. Additionally, members received access to exclusive web content and downloads. In return, Proto-Squad members were occasionally asked to submit feedback about BIONICLE products. A signed letter from BIONICLE author Greg Farshtey was included in every package.[1]

Membership

The Proto-Squad was first advertised in the March-April 2002 issue of LEGO Mania Magazine as a collaboration with then-BIONICLE endorser and professional skateboarder Andy MacDonald. Entry into the program was decided through a contest which asked applicants to mail in their personal information on an entry form, a parent or guardian's signature, and a drawing or photograph of a scene based on a paragraph of text provided in the contest details.[2] Only 2,500 winning Proto-Squad members were to be selected from among these applications.[3] The entry form and contest rules were included in the LEGO Mania Magazine and later posted on the official BIONICLE website. Applicants were required to be US residents who would be between the ages of 9 and 12 as of July 7, 2002.[4] The entry deadline was August 30, 2002.[5]

LEGO did not accept Proto-Squad new members after this initial contest until... TODO
