This year, LEGO has a whole new exciting storyline centered around
Voya Nui, the floating island!
Voya Nui is a most extraordinary island. It was once part
of a large land mass, but broke loose during an ancient cataclysm. Its
inhabitants have been struggling for survival ever since.
After many years of desolation, islanders are running out of
liquid protodermis – which keeps them alive and healthy. To make things worse,
the island’s burning core is about to become extinct, which will make it a
cold, uninhabitable wilderness.
Since times of old, the floating island of Voya Nui has been
guarding an ancient secret. Hidden deep inside the island’s burning core is an
ancient mask – the Mask of Life – so powerful it could mean life or
death to the entire BIONICLE universe.

arrived to seize the Mask. Nobody knows exactly who they are or where they
came from, but they’re evil. They carry a potion that turns every inhabitant
into their slave, and their determined not to let anything stop them. Should
the Mask of Life fall into their hands, the entire universe will be in
