Collectibles

Collectibles are items featured in BIONICLE sets that are part of a larger collection that does not include the figures. Collectibles could be acquired through various means such as supplementary packs, randomly packaged in standard figures, and retail promotions. Collectibles have their roots in both of BIONICLE's predecessors, Throwbots and Roboriders, which featured disk and wheel pieces with a variety of unique prints that also served as ammunition for the sets.

2001

From the inception of the BIONICLE line, Kanohi Masks of Power held a central role in both the sets and the storyline. The Toa's quest to find the Masks of Power was a major focus of the story in 2001. To coincide with this "collect the masks" theme, collectible mask packs were released (set numbers 8525 in America and 8530 internationally). These packs contained two random masks from a series of seventy-two (the Toa Mata's six Kanohi in their six respective colors, and the six Noble Kanohi of the Turaga in their respective six colors), as well as pieces to construct a head with one of six eye colors to display it on. A seventy-third mask, the hand-painted Infected Kanohi Hau, could also be found in those packs.

Featured on packaging was also a silhouette of a then-unknown mask; this was later revealed to be the Kanohi Vahi, planned for release in the 2001 video game BIONICLE: The Legend of Mata Nui. When the game was cancelled, the Vahi was instead used in other promotional giveaways.

Each set released in 2001 included one or more masks. Some of the sets, such as 8534 Tahu, included masks that could be found in the mask packs, while other sets, like 8537 Nui-Rama, included masks that could only be obtained by purchasing that set.

A few other special masks were made available through other promotional events. A transparent neon green Miru (commonly known by the acronym "TNGM") could be obtained at LEGOLAND California. Copper Masks of Victory in two shapes were also made available. A copper Huna was distributed at Toys 'R Us promotions in the United States, at LEGOLAND Windsor in England, and a Nestle promotion in Germany. Promotions to distribute the copper Huna continued into future years, such as a Blockbuster promotion in 2003. At LEGOLAND Billund, a package containing both a Copper Huna and a Copper Komau could be obtained. Slight coloration differences existed between the US and European versions of the Copper Huna.[1] Finally, a 14-karat solid gold Kanohi Hau and was distributed as a grand prize for various contests, including the Search for the Gold Mask Sweepstakes and the Build Your Own BIONICLE Website contest. This mask had two additional holes on the sides for a chain, and only thirty of these masks were ever reportedly produced.[citation needed]

Due to miscommunications between different teams at LEGO, early batches of 8530 contained fourteen masks not found in later releases - the Kanohi Ruru and Kanohi Matatu each in colors of the six Toa and the Kanohi Kaukau in transparent neon yellow and transparent medium blue. However, these packs did not include the 36 noble masks in the colors of the Turaga, the infected Kanohi Hau, or the Kaukau in transparent white or transparent neon orange. These masks are commonly known as the "European misprints," though they were also released in other parts of the world. By the time American 8525 launched in the summer of 2001, this mistake had been fixed.[2][3][4][5] Two of these masks were also made available through other means: the black Ruru was released in 8546 PowerPack (and again in 2003 in 8585 Hafu), and the red Ruru was released with a Bionicle-themed clock in 2002.[6] The fourteen masks were also included on the 2001 BIONICLE.com website.[7]

A promotional poster featuring all ninety-six krana

2002

The second year of BIONICLE brought the Bohrok swarms and the krana. In the storyline, the krana were the organic brains of the robotic Bohrok, and if a krana replaced the mask of a Toa or Matoran, it had the power to enslave its wearer. The toy krana served as a second collectible to complement the Kanohi from the previous year. Krana were slightly smaller than Kanohi masks, and they were made of a rubbery material instead of the typical ABS plastic. The Bohrok and Bohrok Va sets had action features to fling krana at opponents, and each krana could be worn by any set that could wear a mask. There were eight distinct krana shapes and twelve different colors, which formed a set of ninety-six unique krana. Each Bohrok and Bohrok Va set contained one random krana with a particular color but unknown shape. Krana were also released in blind packs numbered 8559 and 8569; three random krana were included in each pack. These krana packs also introduced gold and silver variants of the Great Masks from 2001, two of which were included in each pack.

The latter half of the year saw the release of the Toa Nuva bearing new masks: the powerful Kanohi Nuva. Another series of thirty-six collectible masks (the six Kanohi Nuva, each in the six colors of the Toa Nuva) was made available via packs numbered 8597 and 8598. These packs contained three random krana and two random Kanohi Nuva. Additionally, the Toa Nuva sets each bore a signature Kanohi Nuva. One other new mask, an orange Pakari, was introduced in two sets released in 2002.

Comparison between purple hues in krana

After its release was postponed in 2001, the Kanohi Vahi, the Great Mask of Time, was made widely available in 2002. This mask could be obtained via various means, such as promotions with retailers Toywiz [8] and Walgreens.[9]

The purple krana found in 8550 Gahlok Va and the krana packs was produced in two variations, and a slight color difference can be observed between the two variants.

2003

The first wave of sets released in 2003 featured the Bohrok-Kal and the krana-kal. The krana-kal were identical in shape and material to the krana from the previous year. However, they were produced in metallic colors, to complement the silver sheen of the Bohrok-Kal. The eight krana shapes, each in the six colors of the Bohrok-Kal, formed a new set of forty-eight krana-kal. Each Bohrok-Kal set contained a random krana-kal in its signature color. Krana-kal could also be obtained in collectible packs numbered 8599 and 8600, which contained three krana-kal and two Kanohi Nuva. Six silver "protodermic" Kanohi Nuva (one for each Toa Nuva) were newly available in these krana-kal packs; in the storyline, these represented the color-drained masks of the Toa Nuva when their Nuva Symbols had been stolen by the Bohrok-Kal.

Comparison of Kraata stages

Several special krana-kal were also produced. Seventy-two Sterling Silver krana-kal and five thousand White Metal krana-kal were hidden in random Bohrok-Kal canisters as a part of the "search for the silver" campaign.[10] These krana-kal were made from solid metal instead of plastic. They were packaged in a black pouch with a certificate congratulating the finder;[11] the certificates for the Sterling Silver krana-kal were numbered from one to seventy-two.[12] The White Metal krana-kal and the Sterling Silver krana-kal were only produced in the Xa shape.

Originally, there was a plan for a different kind of metallic krana-kal to be hidden in Bohrok-Kal canisters.[13] Instead of solid metal krana-kal, chrome silver krana-kal would be produced, collquially known as "Vacuum Metal krana-kal." These were made using a vacuum-metalization process applied over light gray krana made of a different plastic than the flexible rubbery material typical used for krana. However, production problems meant that these metallic krana-kal would not be ready in time, and the White Metal krana-kal were produced instead. Members of the Proto-Squad received one Vacuum Metal krana-kal and one Gray Plastic krana-kal (the hard plastic Krana in a pre-metalized state) in May 2003.[14] Vacuum Metal krana-kal were also distributed in the Unleashed van tour in 2003. Both the Vacuum Metal krana-kal and the Gray Plastic krana-kal were produced in all eight krana shapes.

The latter half of 2003 saw the premiere of the Kraata, another new collectible. Kraata were slug-like creatures that controlled the Rahkshi in the storyline and could be stored in the backs of the Rahkshi sets. The Kraata were made of a flexible rubbery material, similar to the krana, and each Kraata was produced in a two-color blend. The combination of a Kraata's head and tail colors indicated its power; there were forty-two such powers. Six of these powers (Fear, Disintegration Poison Fragmentation, Hunger, and Anger, the powers of the Rahkshi sets) had names, while the other thirty-six powers had no special name. With six stages in forty-two color combinations, a total of 252 Kraata types could be collected. These Kraata could be found in packs numbered 8580, which were small canisters containing three random Kraata and two random stickers from a set of twelve. Additionally, each of the Rahkshi sets included a Kraata of a random stage with that Rahkshi's power.

Seven other Kraata were produced that could not be found in random packs. Shadow Kraata, the powerful seventh stage of Kraata, could be found in specially marked Rahkshi sets at specific retailers in late 2003.[15] These Shadow Kraata were solid purple in color, and they could be found in the shape of any of the six previous Kraata stages. Two identical transparent neon orange Kraata with no storyline significance were packaged with pairs of Rahkshi-themed shoes, as well.[16] These Kraata were only produced in the Stage 1 shape.

A number of unique Kanohi masks were included exclusively with various sets released in 2003. Of particular note are the Kanohi Avohkii, the Mask of Light, and the Kanohi Kraahkan, the Mask of Shadows. These were the first masks to connect using a Technic axle instead of a Lego stud. A special version of the Kraahkan, commonly called the Movie Edition Kraahkan, was packaged with 10201 Takutanuva.

The Platinum Avohkii

A red-and-green colored poisoned version of the Hau Nuva was made available through various promotions in late 2003. The mask could be obtained at giveaways at U.S. Lego retail stores,[17] with a German Bionicle magazine,[18] and through a Woolworth's promotion for the Mask of Light movie.[19] A collection of the four BIONICLE Chronicles books released in 2004 also included an Poisoned Hau Nuva. This mask has four commonly recognized variations; like the regular Hau Nuva, it was produced in a mold with four cavities. However, due to the way dual-injection works the masks from each cavity had slightly different, although generally self-consistent, blended patterns of red and green. The different variations can be distinguished by a code printed between the eye holes on the inside of the mask. Type 1-01 and Type 4-01 look the most similar to each other, with prominent green foreheads. Type 2-01 has a red forehead, and Type 3-01 has a thin green stripe on its forehead.

A unique, one-of-a-kind Platinum Avohkii was produced for a Cartoon Network sweepstakes in October 2003.[20][21] This mask was made from solid platinum and had an estimated value of $7000 at the time of the contest.[22] The mask was sold for $15,000 in February 2014, making it one of the most valuable Lego pieces ever produced.[23]

2004

See Also: Sets/2004#Featured Elements

The BIONICLE sets of 2004 introduced the new setting of Metru Nui, the City of Legends, and a corresponding new collectible, the Kanoka disks. Kanoka were not the first collectible disks produced by LEGO; the Matoran sets from 2001 also carried decorated throwing disks, and collectible disks were a key component of the Slizers/Throwbots line, a previous TECHNIC theme. Whereas previous sets had used flexible arm pieces to fling disks, the sets of 2004 introduced new launchers that shot Kanoka out of a holder when squeezed together. Most Kanoka had the same basic appearance: they were made of a white plastic that glowed in the dark, and a large, colored decal was printed on the front which included a special three-digit code. There were some special disks which did not follow this pattern and were still considered Kanoka.

Two Kanoka with a Disk Launcher

Each Kanoka disk was inscribed with a three-digit code, which indicated the disk's powers and prescribed its appearance. These codes were also marketed as a component of the "Kanoka Club," an online portal at BIONICLE.com where one could redeem codes for access to exclusive rewards, such as animations or desktop icons. The first digit of the code was a number from 1 to 6 representing which of the six Metru the disk originated in; the color and shape of the decal on the front of the disk also corresponded to that Metru. In-story, disks from different Metru also had different flight characteristics, such as dodging obstacles or flying farther. The second digit was a number from 1 to 8 representing which of the eight Kanoka powers (such as freezing or regeneration) the disk possessed. Finally, the third digit was a number from 1 to 9 representing the power level of the Kanoka, 9 being the highest; the design on the disk was rimmed with a number of solid segments, and the number of segments also corresponded to the power level. A Kanoka with a power level of 9 was said to be one of the six legendary Great Disks, which were the only Kanoka disks with such a power level. According to this system, 390 distinct Kanoka are possible, although only a fraction of these were ever produced in plastic and redeemable at the Kanoka Club.

Each of the Matoran and Vahki sets released in 2004, along with the large sets 8622 Nidhiki and 8623 Krekka, included a Kanoka disk with a code unique to that set. An additional thirty-six Kanoka types, including the six Great Disks, were made available in 8613 Kanoka Disk Launcher Pack. This set contained two random disks from the collection of thirty-six, a Kanoka Launcher in the primary color of one of the six Toa Metru, and a pin for attaching the launcher to a set's hand. A final Ta-Metru Kanoka with a code of 175 was given with the combined comics of Rise of the Rahkshi!, At Last -- Takanuva! and Secrets and Shadows distributed in European markets,[24][25] resulting in a total set of fifty-one standard Kanoka disks produced.

A few other disks that did not have the standard Kanoka design were also made available in 2004. The set 8601 Toa Vakama included a transparent red Toa Disk. Several promotional images depicted Toa Disk designs for all six of the Toa Metru, but only Vakama's was ever produced in plastic.

Late in the year, Target stores began to sell exclusive Vahki sets that included a Disk of Time marked with the special code 199 instead of the set's usual disk.[26] The Disk of Time was also released with the combined comics of Seeds of Doom and Enemies of Metru Nui in October, 2004.[27] Prototype Disks of Time which do not have a code printed on them also exist; they were given to employees of LEGO.[citation needed] Disks of Time were later included in 8715 Ultimate Creatures Accessory Set.

Employees of LEGO also received a special Kanoka disk called the "BIONICLE Kanoka" with the symbol of the Three Virtues printed on it.

During the 2004 Comic-Con convention, an exclusive Kanoka disk was supposed to be produced and placed within five thousand Toa Metru Vakama sets, which the convention attendees could buy.[28] However, due to a production error, the unique disks were not included within the specially-packaged Vakama sets; only a few samples were made for publicity.[29] The Kanoka featured the Comic-Con logo.

Five hundred Kanoka plated in gold were given as prizes for an instant win game packaged with 2004 canister sets.[30][31] Several other gold Kanoka were distributed as prizes for other contests, such as speed-building contests hosted at many LEGO retail stores.[32][33]

Finally, several blank Kanoka variations were distributed through various channels. A promotional polybag containing a transparent red Kanoka with a black launcher was packaged with a BIONICLE comic in France.[34] Blank tan and black disks were available at Pick-a-Brick stations in LEGOLAND Billund in 2005.[citation needed] Several misprint glow-in-the-dark Kanoka that lacked any decal were also produced.

While collectible disks were a focus in 2004, collectible masks became less prominent. The Toa Metru canister sets contained redesigned Kanohi that affixed to a new head piece with an axle, similar to the Avohkii and Kraahkan of the previous year. These masks came in a single color, and were not part of a larger collection, with mask packs being discontinued. The Matoran sets of 2004 featured silver-blended recolors for the Noble Masks from 2001, but most future sets would follow the trend started by the Toa Metru.

Two special masks were made available in 2004. A gold Mask of Time was also included with specially packaged Vahki that contained the Disk of Time, and was a recolor of the one previously released, utilizing the old style of mask attachment. A special mask (representing a variation of the Kraahkan) was included with the limited edition set 10202 Ultimate Dume. Unlike other masks, this piece did not attach to a head piece with a pin or stud that connected to the mouth, but instead included two axle holes that allowed it to sit over the head of the Ultimate Dume set like a helmet.

A medium blue Pakari was given out with the book collection BIONICLE Adventures Boxset #1-4.[35]

Several colored Rhotuka available in collectible packs

As the BIONICLE line continued, the importance of collectibles diminished. The featured collectibles for 2005 were the Rhotuka, spinners that could be launched using a ripcord. While Rhotuka were released in various colors, there were far fewer variants when compared to previous collectibles such as the Kanohi, Krana, or Kanoka. Some Rhotuka were marked with an alphanumeric code using the Matoran alphabet; these codes could be combined with a prefix marked on a set's packaging to get a complete nine-digit Kanoka Club code. In contrast to the Kanoka, the codes printed on the Rhotuka were randomized and did not follow a specific pattern. Every set released in 2005 (except for the System-based playsets) contained one Rhotuka with a code; sets with multiple Rhotuka also contained unmarked spinners. Most sets (including all of the Toa Hordika and Visorak sets) contained silver Rhotuka, but the Toa Hagah, 8755 Keetongu, many of the Rahaga, and the playset 8759 Battle of Metru Nui contained solid-colored Rhotuka in other colors. Rhotuka were also distributed in 8748 Rhotuka, which contained one silver Rhotuka with a code and four unmarked spinners in a blend of silver and another color. Twelve different colored Rhotuka in the primary and secondary colors of the Visorak were distributed in these packs; the dark green and silver Rhotuka was later made available in 8625 Umbra.

Like the previous year, there were no collectible mask packs in 2005. The masks included in the Toa Hordika sets did not connect with an axle or stud in the mouth; instead, a transverse axle attached their masks to their "heads" (which were merely TECHNIC connectors). The Toa Hagah sets wore standard masks. The playset 8758 Tower of Toa also included a gold Kraahkan, a recolor of the mask first introduced in 2003, used as a structural part of a Kahgarak's head.

Two particular collectibles were less common due to midyear production changes. Some of the first 4878 Rahaga Bomonga sets produced included a dark bluish-gray Rhotuka instead of the silver spinner that later became standard. The black Rhotuka pictured on Bomonga's box and promotional materials was never physically produced. Also, for the 2006 line of sets, LEGO changed from using a darker shade of gold (featured in 8811 Toa Lhikan & Kikanalo) to a warmer shade (prominent in 8734 Brutaka). Some of the later-produced copies of the 2005 playsets used the new shade of gold; as a result, the gold Kraahkan was also available in the warmer shade of gold.
