A modular play and display set sure to delight fans of science
fantasy, and of course: BIONICLE! Deep beneath the surface of their island
paradise, a final battle awaits the heroic Toa… The heroes enter the ancient
temple Kini Nui in order to gain access to their shapeshifting enemy, the
Makuta, who lurks in the island’s underworld. Help the Toa survive the trials
of Mangaia so that they can finally face Makuta and save their home!
Celebrate one of LEGO’s beloved original themes!
- Turn the Technic crank under Kini Nui to lower Toa into the
underground realm of Mangaia.
- Beware of an ambush from the sinister Shadow Toa! Rebuild
the infected villager into this dark enemy.
- Rebuild the 6 Toa into the 2 Toa Kaita titans as they face
the monstrous Manas!
- “Destructible” towers help the heroes weaken their enemy.
- Surround Makuta for a final elemental attack. Spin Makuta’s
chaos by turning the Technic crank!
- Villager Takua and the Toa Kaita are no longer included as
separate models. The Toa Kaita can be assembled from the 6 Toa, with the
addition of some extra (included) pieces.
- Kini Nui temple module and additional "underground chamber” modules included.
- Reconfigurable Shadow Toa included.
*Design note: Makuta's vortex was a challenge to recreate due to the
inability to digitally manipulate flexible parts. Please bear this in mind, as
some parts may appear to be floating, when in reality they are meant to attach
to specific points on the flexible cables.
I appreciate everyone who has commented and supported so
far. Thanks to my buddy HBbricks

**Original Proposal Below**
Makuta! We have come!
Battle it out in Mangaia! Deep beneath
the surface of their tropical island home, the elemental Toa finally confront
the dark and mysterious entity called Makuta. In their merged forms of the Toa
Kaita, the heroes must first survive an attack by the Makuta’s monstrous Manas
guardians. Will they emerge victorious before entering Makuta’s inner chamber?
As a play set and a display piece, BIONICLE
Legacy aims to celebrate the impact of 2001’s hit LEGO theme. Upon its
launch in 2001, BIONICLE introduced LEGO fans to a new world of possibilities
in both story-telling and role-play building. What better scene to depict in
this set than the first climax of the beloved legend, which most poetically and
metaphorically represents playing with LEGO?

Legacy: Storytelling with LEGO Bricks is a passion
project devoted to the long-time fans; but it is also my hope that this set
can serve as a gateway to spark the imagination of those unfamiliar with
all the basic lore of BIONICLE. Tell your own story, and play your way!

minimal amount of highly specialized pieces. Kanohi masks can be
represented by prints. In addition to the Makuta icon print, this idea currently
would have a total of 11 new prints.
