You know how the MOL had those words on it?
Then the "Bionicle" is something.
Then what is it?

where?I can't belive you with no proof.
but yes,I think bionicle is something.

Sorry, it has been proven that the first word has more than four letters, so that translation couldn't be right.

I think BIONICLE is the Name of the Legend of Mata Nui.
so: The legend of Bionicle-The Legend of Mata Nui.

Bionicle means Biomechanicle Chronicle, so what the mask says is:

Are you sure that is the correct translation? I didn't think we had an official translation (or even a good enough pic to translate it) yet.
May 13 2003, 01:52 PM

Like T-man said, we don't have an accurate translation...
Until we do, don't spread that around.
Well, if that is right, "the Bionicle" could mean the whole story of Mata Nui, which could explain the pre-Toa events!

About the translation, I wouldn't reccomend sounding so sure about it, many people have tried and failed to translate it totally. I'm not one of them, though, so I wouldn't know.
To your question, according to the Bionicle.com Lexicon, "Bionicle" means:
|QUOTE (Lexicon Entry "Bionicle")|
| The legend of Mata Nui and the quest of the Toa. |
So, yes, it is something within the Bionicle world; it's the legends (and chronicles, from what I understand). It's nothing big.

i recal it orininating as biomecanical chronicle.
and yes, there has been contraversy over the true translation...

If it is anything, it is probably an old, thick with a capital 't', book.

If that is what it says, it could mean the begining of the end for Makuta which will be cuased by the Toa's one destiny. if that's what it says

Where's a picture of the Mask of Light that is readable? I want to see this.
Edit: I just noticed that the two people who posted before me have quotes from Lord of the Rings in their sigs. Kinda wierd.

bionicle is the chronicles of the events on mata nui, including prophecies about the future. if you look under "chronicle" and "mata nui" on bionicle.com, it says:
|But the Matoran kept faith in Mata Nui, and the Legends of The Bionicle, which told them six mighty heroes called Toa would liberate them from Makuta and his beasts.|
here's a link to that page (go to the arrow next to the word "mata nui" and select "legend of mata nui"):

bionicle is a word that means half animal half machine, pretty cool huh?

I though Bionicle was the name of the ledgend about the Toa- and Lego liked it so it became the product name!
