An ultimate homage to the 20th anniversary of the launch of BIONICLE!

This project was inspired by the fan-favorite Mata Nui Online Game (MNOG), which was playable as episodes on the official LEGO BIONICLE website 20 years ago! As such, this set draws heavily from the mythos introduced in 2001.

Designed for fans new and old, BIONICLE Legacy seeks to evoke some of the gravitas and mystery that accompanied BIONICLE’s launch. Upon release, BIONICLE introduced LEGO fans to not only a system of building, but also to a system of story-telling and role-play. The 2001 LEGO theme provided a rich framework of lore and action for builders to tap into in making their own stories, as well as hours of escapism into the strange world called BIONICLE.

BIONICLE Legacy: Storytelling with LEGO Bricks is a dynamic and expansive diorama. This set is designed to function as a playset as well as a deluxe celebration of what began 20 years ago in BIONICLE.

During the lengthy design and iteration process for BIONICLE Legacy, I let my imagination roam free to deliver a concept that I hope you find as compelling as it was to dream up. I desired to capture the intriguing and impactful aura that BIONICLE impressed upon fans during its release, and so I continually worked to deliver an interactive, fleshed-out encapsulation of that magic. Packed with detail, this interconnected series of vignettes has something for collectors, longtime fans, and those looking to relive the legend. It also aims to convey the BIONICLE world to a new generation of LEGO fans.


  • Help the villagers protect the Makoki stone from the clutches of Makuta’s Rahi – the stone is the only key that the Toa must use to access the temple’s secrets!
  • Turn the Technic crank under Kini-Nui temple to lower Toa into the underground realm of Mangaia.
  • Beware of an ambush from the sinister Shadow Toa, who lurks in the island’s underworld! Rebuild the infected villager into this dark enemy.
  • Rebuild the 6 Toa into the 2 Toa Kaita titans as they face the monstrous Manas! "Destroy" the mysterious energy towers to weaken the monsters.
  • Surround the shapeshifting Makuta for a final elemental attack. Spin Makuta’s vortex form by turning the module’s Technic crank!


  • Combines elements of BIONICLE’s constraction/Technic roots on a miniature scale with LEGO System building.
  • Connect, rearrange, and display the modules as you wish!
  • Includes: 4 villagers, the 6 Toa, 2 Rahi beasts, 2 Manas, reconfigurable Shadow Toa/infected villager, and brick-built commemorative display piece. Note: the Toa Kaita can be assembled from the Toa, with the addition of some extra (included) parts.
