Hey guys. Ive been collecting the Bionicle comics for years from different countries regions and variants. Today i have finally completed the only documented complete US set of comics! If you have any questions please let me know. 

Below are all the US Bionicle comics pictured. Every Issue, variant, promotional, exclusive is included. 

Apologies for the main photo being blurry it was insanely difficult trying to get everything in one picture lined up like that.IMG_0111.thumb.jpg.083ab5d0df0d92223dbae4aeb14bea6e.jpg

Well done! This is very impressive. Sorry to break it to you though. You're still missing at least one. There is the glatorian 4 issue with the red 2009 in the upper left hand corner. That issue has a few pages that the normal glatorian 4 doesnt have.

I knew i would get questions about this. I had a few of those already in my collection. They are also not US released promos! It belongs to a completely different set of comics in another English speaking region :)

I stand corrected! Thanks! Very nice collection!

 

Out of curiosity, how were the yellow border "special edition" ones released?

Thank you :D For the longest time I also thought it was a US release. I will reveal all about that once I finish that set too! 

The yellow special editions came in various DC and Sports Illustrated for Kids comics/magazines during the time of releases. I cant remember the exact issue numbers.

Very cool! I used to have two of the yellow ones that I got in a large lot of items. I just kind of assumed they were UK or Canadian variants or something. Now I kind of regret trading the yellow ones I had  =(

Very impressive work!:ooolala-sign: So cool to see them all displayed in the same place. How long did it take you?!

Also, do you have a master list of sorts that you work off of? I've been working on my own comic collection lately, and while I don't have as many as you yet I'm steadily growing;)

This set took me about 5 years on and off. But only got super serious with it maybe as the pandemic initially hit. Most of that was research and figuring out exactly where each promo came from. I dont currently have a list. But I will have to do one eventually. I hope to scan them all professionally and archive them on a website for all to see :)

This is a nostalgia minefield. I love it.

Thanks guys! I agree the old school covers do just hit different :D
