2009 was the ninth year of BIONICLE sets.

History

Poster advertising the summer canister sets

Promoted as a "soft reboot", 2009 introduced a new setting and new aesthetic for the sets. The small sets, the Agori, featured a similar building style to the previous year's Matoran, as well as using the same type of packaging. The canisters for the winter wave were the Glatorian; as opposed to typical heroes and villains, Glatorian were said to be freelance warriors, pledging their allegiance to the highest bidder.

Following the previous year's example of including titans in the initial wave, 2009 saw the release of two large box sets, the scavenging villain and his steed Fero & Skirmix, and the year's primary antagonist Tuma. In the summer, six more Glatorian canister sets were released, under the sub-brand of "Legends". These sets featured in the first BIONICLE movie since 2005, BIONICLE: The Legend Reborn.

The large sets for the summer were, like the previous year, larger vehicles with Agori or Glatorian riders. Five vehicles were released in all. A special-edition Toys 'R' Us titan set, an enlarged version of the "Toa" Mata Nui set, was also released.

Another Brickmaster exclusive promotional special set was made available to subscribers of the program. This set depicted Click, a creature befriended by Mata Nui.

Featured Elements

Each Glatorian carried a Thornax Launcher, which fired the spiky Thornax pieces when squeezed, and did not wear Kanohi, but rather helmets. Unlike the previous year, there was only one type of secondary weapon, which was included in every larger set.

The special edition Toa Mata Nui set included a golden Kanohi Ignika, a recolor of the silver one introduced the previous year. This was the only set of the year with a mask piece and pin connection to resemble the one used since 2004, while all other characters used newly designed heads and helmets.

Glatorian Action Game

Every wide-release set of the entire year came included with a special counter piece for playing an action game, which involved shooting an opposing character to decrease their hit points.
