It’s now official – thanks to LEGO.com, we now have more official photos and the product page for the upcoming 40581 BIONICLE Tahu and Takua that you can peruse.
40581 BIONICLE Tahu and Takua will be a gift with purchase when you spend US$95/ AU$170 / £95 / €100 on LEGO.com, but only on City, Monkie Kid, Ninjago, Friends, Classic, DOTS, & Creator 3-in-1, and will be available from 27 January 2022 to 9 February.
While it’s not LEGO Technic and CCBS (Character and Creature Building System), nor does it come in a cool plastic canister, it’s a close enough homage to recognise the Bionicle fanbase and phenomenon which all but saved LEGO from bankruptcy in the earlier 2000s.
Here’s the product description
In 2001, The LEGO Group introduced a new theme that would become a sensation: BIONICLE®. This story of mighty heroes with elemental powers took the world by storm, inspiring comics, novels, and movies.
Now two of the theme’s most popular characters return with this LEGO® Icons BIONICLE Tahu and Takua (40581) set.
The articulated action figures come with a fire sword and a disc-thrower accessory. The set also includes a lava display stand, so you can pay tribute to BIONICLE in your home or office.
Get reacquainted with heroes – Tahu and Takua are articulated action figures of iconic heroes from the LEGO® BIONICLE® theme, complete with a fire sword and a disc thrower
Watch them surf on lava – The set includes a lava display stand, allowing the duo to surf on the rivers of molten lava that flow from the Mangai volcano.
Dimensions: measures over 5 in. (13 cm) high and 2 in. (6 cm) wide
