A fair while back, a friend of mine (Yio654) and I, being avid chess players and huge Bionicles fans, had a conversation about making a Bionicle chess set. Not actually a chess set made from Bionicle pieces, but a chess set with Bionicle styled pieces.
We had some ideas, his mainly boiling down to just a good vs evil of the Bionicle universe, and mine being based on some more specific themes, such as Island of Mata Nui, Dark Hunters vs Toa or, my personal choice, Order of Mata Nui vs Brotherhood of Makuta.
For the OoMN vs BoM set I proposed, white was OoMN and they would have generic Toa as pawns, most likely Trinuma and Tobduk as rooks (being the two largest members of the Order), Krakua and... maybe Botar(?) as knights, Axonn and Brutaka as bishops, Helryx as the queen (being female and one of the most powerful members of the Order) and the stone that represents Mata Nui as the king.
Black would be BoM, with Rahkshi as pawns. I strugled with the other pieces for the BoM side, debating over the choice of king and queen and being totally uncertain about any of the other pieces.
So anyway, I propose the question; if you could make a Bionicle chess set, what theme would it be and what/who would be each piece?
