LEGO BIONICLE to be Discontinued at End of 2016


You may or may not have read about it this morning but today marks a sad day in the LEGO community as LEGO has announced that LEGO BIONICLE will be discontinued at the end of 2016 after a two year run.

LEGO BIONICLE was pretty popular when it came back in 2015 and the CCBS community was back in full swing with the revival. There’s no mentioning on why LEGO has decided to end the theme but safe bets are due to lack of sales. LEGO did mention that the final wave of BIONICLE sets will be coming to Europe and North America but will not be released in Asia and the Pacific markets. This usually happens when themes or subthemes are ending such as LEGO Legends of Chima and the LEGO Star Wars Planets sets.


Fans, today we have to share the news with you that we have made the tough decision to discontinue LEGO® BIONICLE® at the end of 2016. NETFLIX has just started streaming the final two episodes of “The Journey to One” the ending of which, will put an end to any speculation about the future of LEGO® BIONICLE®.

With the 2015 relaunch of LEGO® BIONICLE®, we set out to revive a childhood favorite of fans worldwide, and bring it to a new group of children who were too young to have known and played with LEGO® BIONICLE® Generation 1. From your wonderful feedback over the last


LEGO Bionicle Toys R Us Promotion

Toys R Us is having a new promotion this month where you can get a free LEGO Bionicle set with purchases of $40 or more. You can choose between Skull Warrior (70791), Skull Slicer (70792), or Skull Basher (70793). This promo is obviously to move out older inventory to make way for the summer 2016 sets but it’s nice to get a fairly larger set instead of polybags. The promo is available in stores and online and it lasts until July 23.

The upcoming summer 2016 images of the LEGO Bionicle sets have been uploaded to Toy R Us’ website which includes the descriptions of the sets. The only set missing is the Quake Beast (71315) which could mean that it’s another store exclusive.

LEGO BIONICLE: Gathering of the Toa Graphic Novel Sneak Peek

LEGO BIONICLE: Gathering of the Toa

It looks like LEGO BIONICLE fans are getting a sneak peek at some new stuff. Earlier today, Kim from the LEGO Community Engagement team sent over images and a short excerpt from an upcoming LEGO BIONICLE graphic novel called Gathering of the Toa by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. The book will be available on December 29 and it’ll be available in paperback, hardcover, or on the Kindle. Although I’m not into BIONICLE, I know there are readers who are interested in the theme.

On the mythical island of Okoto, the forces of darkness are on the move. To defeat evil, the island Protectors call on the help of six elemental heroes known as the To a. Join Tahu, Kopaka, Onua, Gali, Lewa, Pohatu, and Ekimu as they discover their powers and gather together to fight the hordes of Skull Spiders and the oncoming darkness.

Also includes a never-before-seen look into the secret world of Bionicle in THE OKTO PROTECTORS GUIDE.

The first in an epic graphic novel series of new stories and action-packed adventures following the heroes of Okoto. Features exclusive content that provides maps, myths, and more!
