Matoran was a small promotional BIONICLE mini-comic released alongside the six Metru Nui Matoran sets in early 2004, and was part of the BIONICLE: Metru Nui sub-series. It was also packaged with certain Toa Metru sets. The comic's narration was bilingual, written in both English and French. This issue was never collected into graphic novel format.


Metru Nui appears and is introduced. The Morbuzakh threatens to destroy the city. Only the six Great Disks can stop the plant, and only six Matoran know their locations. However, these Matoran have disappeared! The fate of the entire city rests upon the shoulders of six newly-created Toa Metru. This is the beginning of their story.








A new team of Toa Metru, untested and still mastering their powers, must find the Matoran if Metru Nui is to be saved!
