since the bionicle-pieces only have holes for technic-connections and no studs to use then directly with bricks, you'll have two possibilities: build some kind of "adapter" using technic-pieces. you could use pegs to connect the bionicle-piece with some kind of technic-brick. put the studs of your system-bricks into the bionicle-pieces technic-holes - ...

I found the answer while I was writing this question, but I'm posting question and answer just for dibs on the bionicle tag ;) The Peeron page for that mask I just linked to lists the part number as 32571. I do a search for the part number, and come across the Brickipedia page for that part. Scrolling down, I find the source: Transparent: 8525 ...

Those appear to be Bionicle figures, a theme that was active from 2001 to 2009 (and making a comeback in 2015, I hear). The line focused on buildable "action figures" (aka "constraction figures"). See here: http://brickset.com/sets/theme-Bionicle

The yellow one is the Glatorian-era Mata Nui, the red one with the staff is a Toa Nuva-era Rahkshi (Turahk, to be specific), and the green spider-thing is a Toa Hordika-era Visorak (Keelerak) that has been placed upside-down. The other four are Metru Nui Matoran, without their masks; the lighting makes it hard to tell what elements they correspond to, but ...

I heard a similar question about old cars and how one owner had a hood made of steel and another . . . same make, same model, same year . . . had an aluminum hood. The answer as to why was simple . . . it's the metal the manufacturer had at the time. My guess is once the molding machines are loaded with a color they keep using it until it runs out.

As oezi says, Bionicle elements are usually compatible with Technic connections only, but there are quite a lot of system bricks which have Technic connections as well. As for what to do with Bionicle elements, only your own imagination can answer that. Once you've an idea about what a specific Bionicle element is going to represent in your creation, how to ...

Every LEGO brick has an ID printed somewhere on it. Grab the ID from any piece and then head over to http://brickset.com, then do a search (top right) and select "parts" from the dropdown list. This will show you all the sets that part is used in and you can go from there.

I'm not sure why you say "are nowhere to be found around here" - perhaps you mean Brick & Mortar stores? Both these Bionicle sets are available from the Norwegian shop.lego.com site:

Bionicle sets don't actually make as many new pieces as they did. Typically, new pieces are weapons or heads, and LEGO company is already cool with green-lighting those. (They're sorta important.) Gen 1 Bionicles did, admittedly, have a lot of new pieces, but Gen 2 sets, you will frequently find, try to recycle concepts and pieces, just in different ...
