My elderly father lied to me. He told me I was his favorite child. Later in life he is now asking me to identify his metric ton of Bionicles pieces. He isn’t in the best health so he can’t do it himself, and I’m not the smart one. So I am here with hopes you can help give me some direction so that I can assemble these guys for him. I don’t know if they’re complete, so I can’t help him sell them until I solve these puzzles. Thanks in advance.


  • And help me learn how to post all of the photos I took for this post. Post editing tells me my iPhone photo is too large.

    iPhone photos will be multiple-megapixels with high color information. The maximum photo size for StackExchange is 2MB. You can edit your photos on your phone or a PC and shrink them to 20-25% of the original size and then save as a low-quality JPG, those should upload fine. Edit: looks like you can upload directly using the StackExchange mobile app source Commented Jul 28, 2022 at 19:16

1 Answer 1


I've had a look at the linked photographs and... wow, that's a lot of stuff.

If you plan on reconstructing the sets, remember that you can search for instructions given a set number.

three disassembled bionicles standing up

From he above picture I can identify:

  • 7156-1 "Corroder" (which is not bionicle but rather Hero Factory) (searched for lime bionicle legs)
  • 8696-1 "Bitil" (searched for yellow bionicle legs with 3 technic holes)
  • 8695-1 "Gorast" (just by combing through list of bionicle sets)

disassembled dark green bioncle

disassembled red+gold bionicle

disassembled black+tan bionicle

maybe three disassembled figures and lots of spare parts

disassembled bionicle legs

  • Green technic connector with two ball sockets, from one of four possible sets. I'm guessing 8914-1 "Toa Mahri Hahli " based on the attached dark blue parts, and a mask from a different photograph.
  • Clawed feet from aforementioned 8983-1 "Vorox ", even though the colour doesn't seem to match in the photograph (due to white balance, perhaps?)

several disassembled bionicles and spare parts

Lots of disassembled bionicles

  • 8568-1 "Potahu Nuva" (tan legs connected to brown parts, above revolver)
  • 8911-1 "Toa Mahi Jaller" (6-shot revolver-like part, connected to red&orange parts; also mask appears in later photograph)
  • Transparent wings with hexagon-like pattern from aforementioned 8695-1 "Gorast" (in the pile at the very top)
  • Lots of other unidentified parts

black spider-like bionicle

disassembled orange bionicle with disk launcher

four projectile launchers and a base for a six-legged something

white, black and blue bionicle heads

That's all I can identify for now. You might want to rebuild all known sets, and come back here later with the remaining parts for a second round.

  • Wow! Thank you SO much. This is incredibly helpful!
