“It was in those days I discovered our destinies are not written in stone. We have to find them for ourselves. I found mine. Now it's time for you to make new legends, for that is the way of the BIONICLE.” — TuragaVakama
The Custom BIONICLE Wiki, or CBW for short, is the single largest BIONICLE wiki in existence. Here, you and other fans of LEGO's BIONICLE line can make up your own MOC (My Own Creation) and display it in its own encyclopedia article! Anyone can put their custom BIONICLE creations and stories on this wiki, as long as it's not inappropriate or copyrighted. If you're new here, we encourage you to make a free account. If you already have a username, go ahead and make an article with the box below, or edit an already-existing one. Above all else, have fun!

Surely not? How can Flardrek be winner of Featured Article? Didn't he already win? Ah, but this isn't Flardrek, this is Flardrek. Subtle difference, isn't it? More specifically, this is Flardrek as interpreted by famous BIONICLE storytelling aficionado Toa Hydros. So where do we start?
A resident of Spherus Magna, Flardrek was drafted to fight in the Core War on behalf of the Element Lord of Fire and was trained by the legendary Fire warrior Magmus. Although he fought in many of the War's most famous conflicts, Flardrek perhaps most famously led his battalion to conquer a Rock Tribe outpost defend by an elite Skrall warrior later named Tervok. When Spherus Magna was devastated in the Shattering, Flardrek served the Fire Tribe as its Second Glatorian faithfully, even winning the Great Tournament, until he was left badly injured following a controversial match with Strakk. By the time he recovered, he opted to become a village guard and later a caravan guard for Vulcanus.
More recently, Flardrek was abducted by the rogue Skrall Drakzu and taken to the hidden base of another Skrall named Skirvex, leader of a group called the Gatherers. He was then placed in a cell with the bandit Frehsk whilst awaiting the process that would turn him into a mindless slave of Skirvex and his mysterious master. After staging a failed breakout attempt with Frehsk, Ranzesk, Drex, Flardrek and his comrades were rescued by agents of the Society of Guardians led by Ignika Nui, who gave Flardrek elemental fire powers in the process. Regrouping with dozens of the Society's agents at the Sanctuary, Flardrek agreed to aid the Society in stopping the Gatherers and their villainous experiments.
That’s right, this small little panel has become a meme amongst our community, and it is now our featured image. What has the world come to.
Aside from it being a meme, the image itself exhibits BC’s signature art style and take on canon characters. In this we have Onewa’s reaction to seeing Nokama and Vakama once again after a long time. The detail and character put into this rendition of the Toa Metru of Stone’s design is amazing.
It truly captures both Onewa’s personality and BC’s wit, and is worthy of being this month’s Featured Image.
Welp, looks like Invader won Featured Creation again. At least it's for good reason.
First off, this one is named Urian. Because this can't be all praise (you know we love flaming each other), I'm gonna make fun of this name for a few seconds… and done.
Now, the actual moc. First and foremost, this one is a Steltian. We don't get many of those up here (I said many, not none, so chill). The bit that probably stands out most are those lower arms. The translucency here is connected to her backstory, but regardless I think it looks spectacular. Gives the moc a nice feel, and just generally looks cool. The head has an interesting design to it, and looks good to me. And can I just point out the waist swivel. The color scheme is solid, even including the forearms. And hey, it even has a heartlight (I'm such a sucker for heartlights).
All-in-all, the only thing this Steltian is missing is a better name. As such, make sure that when you give Invader his obligatory cookies you write a better name on them in chocolate chips (or whatever you put in those things).
Originally written as FireStar97's entry to the 2016 Halloween Writing Contest, Red Star is a story that creatively treats one of the most bittersweet storyline aspects of BIONICLE Generation 1 with a fresh and insightful spin.
Describing his latest storyline endeavor as a "Psychological Thriller, Horror, Mystery short story" that's quite a mouthful, FireStar uses Red Star to do something more than add closure to a forgotten 2010 story serial. With Kopaka and Pohatu trapped aboard the geostationary but still ever-present Lazarus Pit of a satellite, they must survive with the help of the only named character Greg could think of that wasn't Lhikan -- Mavrah.
But when Kopaka's Akaku Nuva picks up a series of carnivorous shapes deep in the heart of the satellite things start to run awry, ultimately culminating in a controversial but nonetheless fitting conclusion. No longer the subject of ridicule and scorn, the Red Star proves itself home to a number of well-executed science-fiction thriller tropes, earning its place in the Custom BIONICLE Wall of Stars.
But Gonel isn't just here for churning out stories, oh no siree. For quite some time now, he has been working hard to circulate community headcanons and incorporate his findings into canon-compliant articles. Most noticeably, Gonel underwent the extensive process of mapping out and naming all the various different unnamed species the Matoran Universe. It is thanks to Gonel that we now have names for pages such as Sidorak's, Brutaka's, and even Takadox's species.
While I personally haven't had many opportunities to speak directly to the man himself, I have witnessed some of his truly benevolent efforts to defuse heated situations and include as many people as possible in discussions. I have seen him contribute meaningfully and there are few users as mature and conscientious as Gonel in our userbase. He's an example to us all and a spectacular content producer.
So here's to ToaGonel and the question on everyone's lips: why isn't this man a Staff Member yet?
Before making articles, we recommend that all new users read through our Manual of Style, the quintessential guidelines to article layouts on this wiki. The Manual explains the manner in which all articles should be made and how they should be structured. The wiki staff uphold the Manual of Style as the necessary format of all articles, so we advise that in order to prevent your articles from entering our improvement categories, you have a quick read through of the Manual.
As a fanon site, the Custom BIONICLE Wiki has a number of articles that do match our layout guides. Help out the wiki now, by updating, improving, categorizing, revising and adapting the articles found in categories such as the Article stubs, Articles for wikification or Outdated Template Articles, so they match our Manual of Style. Partake in this project and help bring the articles found in these categories back up to scratch with the community's expectations.
