2011 Glonor Metru Nui 02
It seems a rather iconic figure of the wiki has graced us with his presence on the main page this month. Standing up for truth, justice, and underrepresented Matoran everywhere, Glonor has become a universal problem solver and remains immensely popular amongst fans, second only to The Mighty Thode.

He has more alternate universe iterations than you can count on one Glatorian hand, and has starred in his own critically-acclaimed story serial. Quite the résumé for a four-and-a-half foot tall otherwise obscure former military official. One would obviously expect such a character to have an article as glorious as he is, and as usual (except for that one time) BobTheDoctor27 does not fail to deliver. We are provided with a reasonably long, carefully thought-out, and informative article that tells you everything you could possibly want to know about our dapper friend Glonor other than when he’ll find that Toa stone already.

For anyone (if such a person exists) who is unfamiliar with his backstory, I will provide a brief summary. Glonor’s idyllic life in Karda Nui was brought to an abrupt end by the Time Slip organized by the Order of Mata Nui, when he was relocated to the military capital of the Matoran Universe, Vacca Nui. There he made a name for himself in ranks of the Vacca Nui military, though after a long and relatively successful career he left the island, feeling he no longer belonged after a critical injury on the field of battle during the brutal civil war. He wandered the universe for years, eventually meeting up and joining a group of other Av-Matoran during the Reign of Shadows. The group would later emigrate to Spherus Magna, where they stumbled across a dimensional portal projector once used by the Great Beings. The unspoken leader of the group, the now-Toa Tollubo, feeling his talents were unappreciated in his home universe, chose to use the device to travel to a universe where he could make himself useful. Glonor and the others would reluctantly follow him through.

His story would continue in the immensely popular Fractures Universe storyline as he made his place in this strange new world. Glonor’s article is a model example of what one should aim for when making an article: it’s enjoyable to read; complies with our Manual of Style and Layout Guide; and to top it all off, it’s packed with quality content and sufficient amounts of fluff. Read it and weep.

It would seem that BionicleChicken has pretty much established himself as a permanent fixture on the Main Page. For the past couple of months he has done nothing short of dominate the Featured Image spotlight with his scores of fancy drawings and commendable photo edits. This time around we have a stellar piece of promotional artwork for the Toa Metru of the Pirates Universe, a world in which the damage of the Great Cataclysm existed on a larger scale and flooded a great majority of the Matoran Universe. Taking to their sea-bound vessel – The Lhikan – our favorite Toa Team roams the oceans of their new world, regathering their divided teammates and inconveniencing Admiral Nektann and his Skakdi Navy whenever possible.

Here depicted, it would seem the Toa have encountered something of a snag in their voyage, one that has thrown them from their ship in a sporadic jumble of timber and limbs. In the manner so typical of his later Toa years, we have Vakama Maskbreaker charging forwards into battle, in command both of himself and his team. Momentarily phased but ready to kill a man at a moment’s notice, first-mate Nokama resides beneath him, wondering perhaps who damaged her ship and what nearby objects she can use to make him pay. Ever the pilot, Matau is here seen gripping the remains of the steering wheel, a stylish bandanna wrapped around his mask while he tries to convince himself that turning left was a bad idea. With his arms folded and snazzy eyepatch on, Nuju looks just about done with this entire misadventure, while Whenua is too fascinated by his parrot-Rahi to even notice they have left the ground. And, of course, to top the whole thing off, we have peg-legged Onewa higher in the air than any other Toa of Stone before him. Truly a team that will go down in history as one of BIONICLE’s greatest achievements, now enriched with this fascinating, comedic re-imagining.

To catch up with their continued shenanigans, be sure to check out Pirates: The Regathering.

Featured Creation

Windfall Revamp

Ahh, Windfall. You’re practically dominating the Main Page today.

Widely recognized as the like-named Self MOC of Windfall the wanderer, this creation holds a prestigious rank in the Custom BIONICLE community, pulling off several admirable construction techniques and features worthy of commendation.

Interestingly, this iteration of Windfall marks the first instance of blue armoring in the character’s color scheme, which has historically been black and silver, traces of which can still be spotted hidden away beneath the folds of his armor.

There are so many opportunities to go wrong with a component silver coloring. When juxtaposed strictly with Metru blue and in the hands of one of the wiki’s most capable MOCists, however, it makes for a tasty piece of visual eye candy. Incorporating several pre-fabricated limb pieces, Windfall possesses a largely custom-based build as well as some admirable armoring. He utilizes some of the best features of late BIONICLE years to present something truly unique, even possessing two of the highly-coveted Metru blue Rahkshi feet and implementing G2 armor add-ons into the shaping of the thighs.

With a far horizon of endless possibilities stretched ahead of him, one can only wait in blind anticipation of Windfall’s adventures.

Featured Story

The Sea
The Sea Banner

Tracing its origins from a troubling experience encountered in Echo 1’s personal life, The Sea is a tremendously powerful and moving story, one of the Custom BIONICLE Wiki’s first truly evocative literary products that leaves a haunting impression of lost virtue and utter despondency on the part of its principle character.

Stooped in the weight of his transgressions and anxieties over his leadership role, The Sea documents a poetic and poignant encounter between Toa Lodran and the ocean. Lamenting over his past life and the changing attitudes towards his kind in the dark ages of the pre-Great Cataclysm era, the seasoned figure bares his soul to the reader, confessing to his many failures and inadequacies, the worst of which is his tragic failure to save his fallen teammate, Toa Vitara.

Ridiculed by his remaining teammates and reproved by Ta-Matoran villagers, Lodran fulfills the role of a tragic hero at his lowest point at a time when heroism was met with fatal consequences. Echo1 has done an astounding job worthy of tremendous admiration for offering such a fitting introspective of life after the Great Cataclysm in a world that seemed to no longer need its Toa for protection.

Will Toa Lodran find communion with his inner demons and make peace with Vitara’s haunting presence? With himself? With the sea? Read the full story here.

Windfall the wanderer

Having joined our humble community back in the murky ethers of June, Windfall finds himself as one of the newest additions to our brood. With well over 1000 edits under his belt and a reputation as one of the wiki’s most capable MOC producers, it cannot be overstated just how grateful we are to officially indoctrinate the fellow into the CBW family.

Windfall possesses a budding interest in the construction of Toa characters. He has made this abundantly clear by detailing so on his userpage and in the New Files, creating commendable MOCs and uploading content on a practically daily basis. And by no means just his own. Windfall has recently begun a quest to traverse the wiki in search of under-appreciated characters with no images to give his special treatment; such as Selac and Lorthorna.

Whilst his MOCing prowess is indeed admirable, it is far from being Windfall’s only quality of worthiness and hardly the only reason why he has been selected as our User of the Month. In the interactions this humble wordsmith has held with him, Windfall never fails to amaze me with his courteous nature and charisma. He behaves as a true stoic. You would have to search far and wide to find a user of the CBW community who has not felt a stirring of motivation in their own creative endeavors brought along by the wandering chap.

With his upcoming story Protector's Dawn currently in development and his Saga Guide now operational, there are many great days ahead on the horizon for our windy friend.

Featured Quote

"I used to be fearless. I lived in the southern islands. I spent most days climbing rocks, running down hills, digging graves for other villagers till the tide came in. I’d comb the beaches for strange shells so I could crush them. It feels so long ago since that reckless destruction defined me, like it was somebody else who lived that part of my life. Not me. The Matoran I used to be has been swept out to sea. He is another tide entirely, way back in the distance."
―Tollubo's rendering of his identity crisis, Judgment Day.
