Masks of Power are objects that grant power to those denizens of Okoto who wear them.

History

A variety of beings can wear and use Masks of Power, Okoto's Islanders chief among them. Masks of Power were crafted by the brothers and Mask Makers Makuta and Ekimu; Ekimu himself bore the Mask of Creation while Makuta wore the Mask of Control. It was a sacred law that Masks of Power could not contain the power of multiple elements, for a multi-powered mask would be too dangerous.

Over time, Ekimu's masks grew more sought after than his brother's. Jealous, Makuta broke sacred law and combined elemental powers to forge the most powerful mask in existence: the Mask of Ultimate Power. Makuta donned the mask, but it took control of his body; tremors struck Okoto, and the island began to crumble. Ekimu struggled with his brother and managed to knock the mask from his face, and a shockwave blasted the Masks of Creation, Control, and Ultimate Power across the land.

The Protectors wear elemental masks that are passed down from generation to generation.[1]

Thousands of years after Ekimu's fall, Okoto was beset by Skull Spiders. In their search for the Mask of Creation, the Skull Spiders threatened the Islanders, and the Protectors invoked the Prophecy of Heroes to summon the six Toa to Okoto. The Toa arrived wearing elemental masks, and with the aid of the Protectors they retrieved more powerful Golden Masks of Power from their hidden shrines. Ekimu contacted the Toa through the Golden Masks and urged them to find his resting place in the City of the Mask Makers. However, upon entering the city, the Toa were attacked by the Skull Creatures, who also seek the Mask of Creation.

Golden

The Golden Masks of Power grant great elemental powers to those who wear them. Ekimu can also send visions to the users of Golden Masks. After the Toa's arrival, the Protectors led the heroes through the wilds of Okoto to claim the Golden Masks from their hidden shrines.

Set Information

The 14-karat gold Golden Mask of Skull Spiders

In 2015, each of the six Master sets include two Masks of Power: one in the Master's respective color and one in gold. Each Protector set also includes a mask; all six Protector masks utilize the same mold. Four dual-colored variants of the Masks of Ice, Jungle, Earth, and Stone were released in the medium-sized summer sets alongside new Skull and Bull Skull masks, while the large set included the Mask of Creation, a golden Protector mask variant, and a Skull mask.

A total of 1,500 transparent copies of the Mask of Fire were released, 800 of which were given away to attendees at New York Comic Con 2014. Copies of the mask were also given away on Twitter[3] and donated to BZPower.[4]

A transparent orange Mask of Fire was available in the promotional polybag 5002941 BIONICLE Hero Pack which also included a dark blue Skull Spider, a poster, a booklet, and a sticker sheet.

14-karat solid gold versions of the six Master masks, the Mask of Creation, and the Golden Mask of Skull Spiders were also produced, intended to be given away through various means. They were first revealed and on display together at NYCC 2014, with the exception of the Golden Mask of Skull Spiders, which was later revealed as the grand prize for the Battle for the Gold Mask competition.

Two hundred copies of a transparent blue Mask of Water were given away on the 2015 LEGO Inside Tour event. Each mask was numbered, and are the only known versions to be produced.

At the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con, an exclusive trans-neon green Bull Skull Mask (identified as a "Skull Scorpio Mask") was given away through a drawing.[5]

An exclusive gold Skull Mask is included in 5002942 LEGO BIONICLE Villain Pack.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Both 70784's set description and official website refer to it as the "Jungle Mask" rather than following the "Mask of" convention used by other Masks of Power. The Protector of Jungle's mask follows this pattern as well. Island of Lost Masks refers to them as "Masks of," however.
