We’ve got some good news for you LEGO fans. The LEGO group recently announced details regarding a relaunch (and accompanying storyline) for LEGO Bionicle at New York City Comic Con. The new toys will be available globally on January 1, 2015. From the press release:
“We are thrilled to announce the relaunch of the LEGO BIONICLE franchise, which was one of our most popular LEGO franchises and our first ‘constraction’ or constructible action figure line,” said Michael McNally, Senior Director of Brand Relations, The LEGO Group. “We are eager to introduce and immerse a new generation of children in this rich character-driven world and can’t wait for fans of all ages to interact with the new story.”
The storyline revolves around the mythical island of Okoto, where the evil Makuta is gathering his forces to dominate the island and track down three powerful masks: the Mask of Creation, the Mask of Control and the Mask of Ultimate Power. The islanders enlist the aid of six heroes (each are masters of an element) in order to defeat Makuta. The LEGO group noted that they will offer a wide range of Bionicle sets from each of the factions, and the prices will range from $9.99 – $19.99 for each set.
