|Release Date||March-April 2003|
"A Matter of Time...", also known by its title text "Who Will Stop the Bohrok-Kal?", is issue #11 of the BIONICLE series. The comic was packaged with the March/April 2003 LEGO Magazine.
Toa Nuva Tahu leads a swarm of Tahnok against the Nuhvok-Kal, but the Bohrok-Kal merely sends them flying into space and makes Tahu too heavy to move as it threatens him.
Gali, Lewa, and Kopaka form the Toa Nuva Kaita Wairuha in an attempt to defeat three Bohrok-Kal. Assessing the situation, Kohrak-Kal, Gahlok-Kal, and Lehvak-Kal form a Bohrok-Kal Kaita, and charge toward the Toa.
Elsewhere, Pohatu and Onua see Tahnok-Kal coming forward and, bickering a little, begin their plan. Onua emerges from their hiding place and taunts the elite Bohrok. The angered Tahnok-Kal shoots streams of lightning at the Toa Nuva but Pohatu kicks a polished stone in the way, reflecting the lightning at a tree behind it. The tree falls on and stuns Tahnok-Kal. They retrieve its Krana-Kal which tells them that the Kal are headed for the Bahrag nest. Turaga Nokama approaches and tells them a Krana-Kal was obtained using a Boxor to ambush a Bohrok-Kal. The Krana-Kal told the Turaga of the Bohrok-Kal and their mission. Nokama also tells the two Toa Nuva that the Bohrok-Kal are heading back to the nests. Meanwhile, unnoticed by the Toa, Tahnok-Kal escapes with the help of some Bohrok Va.
The Kal enter the chamber where the Bahrag are imprisoned as Pahrak-Kal blasts open the entrance with its powers.
The Toa Nuva follow the Kal into the nest, and Lewa scouts ahead and witnesses the Exo-Toa fighting the Kal on their own and losing badly. The Kal destroy the six Exo-Toa, and are ready to place the stolen Nuva Symbols on the Nuva Cube, unlocking the Bahrag's Protodermis cage and releasing the Bohrok swarms. Lewa reports back and the desperate Toa worry over what to do. Too absorbed in their task, the Kal do not notice the Toa coming after them, and Tahu dons the Kanohi Vahi, the Legendary Mask of Time.
