|“||To save the island, each Toa had to collect six Kanohi Masks of Power. Their quest took them beneath the ocean...and to rivers of molten lava. The Toa even dared to challenge the might of Makuta's powerful beasts, the Rahi--risking all to save us!||”|

Legends Part 1: Tale of the Toa was the first of a three-part mini-comic promotional series released in conjunction with McDonald's. Randomly selected card packets of BIONICLE: The Bohrok Awake also came packaged with this comic.
Armed with the krana, the key to the Bohrok's defeat, the Toa descend into the nest. There they will gain great power, confront a new menace to Mata Nui, and be transformed forever!
Turaga Nokama sits around a campfire, telling the Ga-Matoran legends of the Toa's heroic deeds. While Mata Nui was once an island paradise, Makuta afflicted it with darkness. When all seemed lost, the six Toa of legend finally appeared: Tahu, Kopaka, Gali, Lewa, Onua, and Pohatu. To increase their powers and fight Makuta, each hero sought out and acquired six Masks of Power. Their quest was not easy. Accomplishing this mission sent them all across the island, and brought them into conflict with Makuta's servants, the Rahi. Finally the Toa united their bodies and minds together to form the Toa Kaita, powerful beings able to battle the Manas toe-to-toe. After defeating Makuta, a new threat emerged: the Bohrok!
