Yeah. Most of them are the misprints, but the top row are the prototypes that are difficult to come by. The pink mask is currently the only one in it's existence.

Ahhh, you're right, I was confusing it for this piece:

Plain trans-red minifigure heads are definitely HTF, not in any set. You can actually buy a whole slew of different plain minifigure heads in a whole variety of different non-standard colors on BrickLink. I recently also got a couple pearl gold ones, a bunch of trans-dark blue ones, a couple lime, dark tan and medium dark flesh ones too. The prices aren't too bad either, usually around .75 cents each for most of the HTF ones.

If you want to see something REALLY rare, check this out:

That popped up on BrickLink a few days ago. It's Bright Light Blue! Not to be confused with the recent swarm of HTF medium azure ones that have popped up (most are selling for around $5). There's only ONE of these for sale, current asking price is $123.40, which is pretty steep, but a definite rarity!

Fun fact - that mask is not the first design of the mask.

This is:

That design was just for the Bionicle Heroes game and the Voya Nui flash game.

The design you mentioned is what it looked like before Vezon took it, but the set came out before the game.

I know my Bionicle history.

You wouldn't really think of it as rare, but Lego has never actually made that part in that particular color in any set.

This is the rarest stuff I have from Lego:
