Every Bionicle knows the six main elements like the back of their hands: fire, water, earth, air, ice, and stone. But of course, as the storyline went on, it revealed even more elements that were supposedly “secondary elements.” According to the official wiki, these are all the secondary elements of G1:
Sonics (pretty much sound)
And then the “Legendary Creation” elements were Life, Creation, and Time.
To my knowledge, there were only two Toa sets released that weren’t Toa of one of the six main elements: Takanuva and Toa Ignika, the Toa of Light and Life, respectively. And the 2008 version of Takanuva encompassed Shadow as well. Plus, there was the whole Voriki rumor back in 2001…
But what about the rest of the elements? There were a fair number of Toa of the other elements in the novels, serials, and other story material, so I can’t help but wonder what it would’ve been like if we’d actually gotten sets of them. The formula for Bionicle set waves was that each wave, we’d get a set of six canisters, all of which were sets of characters that were the main colors-red, blue, white, black, green, and brown/yellow/orange/tan. This was the case all throughout the 2001-2008 story arcs, since every character was of the six main elements. But that made sense, because 2001-2003 introduced us to the six main elements, and 2004-2008 was taking characters from those years and making them Toa. And Bara Magna’s set of elements was pretty much the same.
So, hypothetically, if we did get another set of six canister sets that encompassed the secondary elements, what would it look like? Here’s my idea:
1-a Toa of Plantlife (in green and blue)
2-a Toa of Lightning (in blue and white)
3-a Toa of Sonics (in grey and black)
4-a Toa of Gravity (in purple and black)
5-a Toa of Magnetism (in gray and black)
6-a Toa of Psionics (in blue and gold*)
Which, of course, leaves us with Plasma and Iron. But maybe those could be supplementary sets like the Toa Hagah, or Lesovikk, or something along those lines. What do you guys think?
