The island of Mata Nui was once a paradise-- until the entity known as Makuta arrived, transforming it into a land of darkness and evil. The natives have waited and hoped for heroes who would conquer Makuta and save their home. Now their waiting has come to an end. Six mighty warriors, known as Toa, have arrived on Mata Nui. Each controls a force of nature. But to triumph over Makuta, they must gather the Kanohi Masks of Power, which give them greater skills, abilities, and wisdom. Finding the Masks takes great courage, for Makuta also commands a host of terrible creatures known as the Rahi as well as the Manas, fierce predators with power no single Toa can withstand... If the Toa hope to win, they must find the power of the Masks!
