Swedish bionicle comics promo items.

Hello!

Today i would like to show you guys some random items and comics related to bionicle that are in my native language Swedish so for some of the more intresting things in them.
Disclaimer: Good guy will not appear in this review since he was not realesed in the swedish bionicle comics

Let’s start with the lego portion of this review cause honestly i think most of you wanted to know more about them.


Here we have them this iteams are nothing relly exclusive to these comics they are just there from some reason but i digress since there still is the 175 ta metru disk there which is quite rare also the infected hau is cool so thats a thing.

Unfortunally i don’t have all the issues they came with but here is a list of where you could aquire these.

2003 Special issue came with the Infected hau
2004 issue #3 came with Kanoka 175
2004 issue #4 came with the Disk of time
2004 issue #5 came with the Mask of time
2005 issue #2 “Ondskan från skuggorna” came with a Vakama hordika figure
2005 issue #3 came with a Toa Iruni mask
2005 issue #4 “Splittringar” came with a Visorak minifigure
2007 Issue #1 “Uppgörelsen” came with a Jaller inika mask

While doing this review it was suprisingly very little information regarding these comics so i had to resort to mostly own knowledge and reasoning so this list is not completly accurate and as you can see i dont have the names for all of them either. As i said earlier i pieced this together with reasoning and my reasonig for these place ment is because the item you aquire from each issue is related to the comics synopsis more on that later.

Here comes the comic part of this review.

First i’m going to look over 2005 issue #2 “Ondskan från skuggorna” or the equivelent of issue #22 Hordika unleashed + Issue #23


The synopsis of “Ondskan från skuggorna” is mainly about the return to metru nui after “Legends of Metru nui” and how the toa metru became hordika it also makes refrences to the keetorange beast himself Keetongu.

Next up we have 2005 Issue #4 “Splittringar” which is the equivelent to Issue #26


The synopsis here is that while Toa Vakama, Onewa, Nuju and Whenua tries to get out of a pile of rocks that temporarely burrowed them Matau and Nokama spies on the visorak hoard where they finds out about Rodakas plans. We are then taken back to the rest of the gang who is to caugth up in arguing but they makr their way to Matau and Nokama to save the day.

More pictures.

Last comic that i have is 2007 Issue #1 “Uppgörelsen” the equivelnt to ignition 03 and 04.


So synopsis the inika storms pirakas stronghold, brutaka loses his powers gets them back, the toa inika travels down the chambers of life and defeats umbra.

Another picture.

So here comes a bit more information about my reasoning. Because “Ondskan från skuggorna” is about the hordika i belive it is why they packaged it with a hordika Vakama figure. “Splittringarna” is mostly about the visorak thats why you would get a visorak minifig with this one. Since i think i have proven my point i don’t think i have to explain the rest.

Final thougts: So here’s the catch for what little story we in Sweden got i think ity is okay since they keep most if not all from their worldwide counterparts thou i would liked it as a kid if the books we’re translated to Swedish this way i probaply would not hate reading so much since then i would have had books i actually want to read but i digress since some of the items you got with the comics were fun to have. These comics gets a rating of 5.5/10 not bad LEGO not bad.

How come?

Hi! I’m also Swedish and I also got some of those comics you have, but most of them were already used when I got them and did not include any special item.
But I bought “Upgörelsen” who I think included a Toa Inika Jaller mask and a special issue that included three comics that covered the 2001- late 2002/early 2003 who included a Toa Inika Nuparu mask in a ICA store around 2006/2007.

I found some information on this special comic. https://seriewikin.serieframjandet.se/index.php/Bionicle

The name/information of this special comic is:
“Bionicle – Extratjockt specialnummer! De tre första avsnitten i en och samma tidning!” According to the website it was Issue 2/2006.

Well i see then the infected hau nuva probaply came with 2003 issue 1 “sex hjältar, ett öde” the issue you mentioned was most likely the special issue i talked about so my bad. I think it be cool to gather more information about Swedish bionicle merchandise thou.

Yeah, information about Swedish Bionicle merchandise would be something interesting to dig into and it can be a chance that these special issues include some special items.

I can send a picture on “Bionicle – Extratjockt specialnummer! De tre första avsnitten i en och samma tidning!” when I have time to find it in my garage.

If you want, we can continue this discussion through the TTV messegeboard message service.
