Bionicle Coming Back in 2015?

Hellego! There have been rumors lately that Bionicle will be coming back in 2015! This is very exciting to hear since so many people were disappointed when it was discontinued. It was one of Lego's most successful themes and it's one of the themes that saved them from going out of business in the late 90's, early 2000.

The theme started in 2001 and lasted until 2010 where it was then discontinued and replaced by the Hero Factory theme which many people were disappointed about. Although the type of build was very similar, it really did not have the same feel to it and many Bionicle fans did not like the theme because of that. Also, many people like me grew up with Bionicle and knew the story very well. Up to 2010, the theme was still doing very well and there was no reason for Lego to stop it which made it even more frustrating. The theme had movies, video games, it had a whole world with lands like Mata Nui and had it's own language, sports and cultures. The backstories of this theme were huge! These are things that made this theme so interesting.

Now that you've read a bit of history, now is time to give out real news! Bionicle fans are very excited these days since a picture has recently been leaked, that has new, never before seen, Bionicle sets.

In the picture, we can see a total of 13 sets with new characters and we also have rumored names and set numbers!

70778: Defender of Jungle
70779: Defender of Stones
70780: Defender of Water
70781: Defender of Land
70782: Defender of Ice
70783: Defender of Fire
70784: Leva – Master of Jungle
70785: Pohatu – Master of Stones
70786: Gali – Master of Water
70787: Tahu – Master of Fire
70788: Copac – Master of Ice
70789: Onua – Master of Land
70790: Lord of the Skull Spiders
All of this is very exciting to hear! The Bionicle theme had ended unexpectedly and left us with many parts of the story unanswered. Having this theme back will not only continue the story, but it will also bring back a feeling of nostalgia to all the fans.

What do you think of this news? Are you excited? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!
