Six mighty heroes – the Toa – arrive on a tropical island to find a land under siege.
The Great Spirit Mata Nui has been cast into an unending sleep by the evil Makuta.
Now Makuta is attacking the island's Matoran villagers with vicious Rahi beasts.
The Toa must combine their skills and elemental and mask powers to defeat Makuta and restore peace to the island.
In the second story, The Toa return to the island named for Mata Nui to find it is being overrun by mechanical insects called Bohrok.
These Bohrok have been unleashed by Makuta and are rapidly destroying trees, mountains, rivers, villages and anything else in their path.
After a long, difficult battle, the Toa are able to defeat the queens of the swarms and end the Bohrok threat … for now.
During the fight, the heroes are transformed into Toa Nuva, with new armor, new weapons, and new Masks of Power.
The arrival in graphic format of the Bionicle series, Lego’s massive saga of cyborgs who defend a tropical island from evil, is sure to be hailed by its fan base as the second coming, which wouldn’t be inappropriate given the book’s themes.
With its mind-tangling twist of religio-mythical cosmology, painfully complex Maori-based names, and an array of characters with nearly indistinguishable personalities, no Bionicle installment is recommended for the uninitiated, and this is far from an exception.
This mixture of furious action and dialogue is so ripe with portent that nonfans might actually be turned off from ever reading again, but the undeniable appeal for boys between the ages of 7 and 12 makes this a must-have for the libraries that serve them.
Originally printed for the Bionicle Club, the book’s combination of specialized vocabulary and bursts of action makes for an irresistible invitation to that group of classically reluctant readers.
Not that the readership will particularly care, but the small format hampers the exceptionally precise and vibrant art.
