“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!
Where to start
If you are new to Wikia, you may want to try the tutorial on the Central Wikia.

Of all the Toa Hagah, Norik is easily one of the most well-explored, having had an entire short story dedicated to exploring his background, at least in part. To some it may seem like there isn't much more to tell, or the other stories are worth exploring. However, as with all his canon-complicent articles, user Bob not only thoroughly details Norik's actions in established lore but heavily expands upon them, filling in the gaps before his arrival in Metru Nui, during the Reign of Shadows, and following his arrival on Spherus Magna, even going so far as to explain the reasoning behind such actions. Throughout all of this, Bob injects a thorough amount of fascinating headcanon and mythos into everything we already know (or think we know).
It is quite an hefty endeavor, and yet an examination of the other Hagah pages on the wiki have also had heavy, if not complete contributions from Bob. I must say, it's a commendable task to undertake, but we can only hope Bob will continue to reexamine Bionicle's lore and continue to expand and flesh out everything we know.
At surface level alone, this image may strike you as be a neurotic, bizarre image pulled out of someone’s worst nightmare. However, as FireStar will be quick to point out, one cannot judge art--be it writings or drawings or music or whatever else--at surface level alone. The biomechanical man at the fore of the image hearkens back to Da Vinci’s Vitruvian man, arguably the most fundamental depiction of a human (or humanoid’s) most basic form. Doubtless this is intentional on the part of FireStar, as he directs our attention to this; indicating that his story will strip its characters down to their most basic forms as he attempts to imagine how Toa would react in a world where Makuta’s Plan has gone horribly wrong.
Furthermore, FireStar has styled much of the background to be abstract in nature and possibly indicative of brains, veins, and other such inner workings. This is further indicative of the notion FireStar wants Paradise be similarly abstract, and for the readers to put greater thought into reading and interpreting his piece than they normally would. I’m sure all of us would love for readers to notice the finer details and complex themes of our work, but FS certainly brings their attention to such matters with cover pieces like this.
When I first saw Ids5621's varient of movie-Vakama, it was last month when I was scrolling through BZPower's news feed and checking out the latest cool updates when there is was. It was an impressive-looking MOC, and I was immediately impressed by its attention to the finest of details. From Vakama's sizeable snout (extended more so for the movie) to the hunch on his back to the round... things on his leg. It's hard not to be blown away by this model.
Now the MOC has made the rounds and Ids has brought it back where it beat perfection itself to claim a position again on a main page. One can even find this is not the only movie-accurate model Ids has built, as he has, among other things, built an accompanying Takua. While some would argue Vakama's eyebrows aren't quite long enough, this MOC is hands-down the most movie accurate version on the internet and another worthy addition from Ids to join the CBW Featured Creation pantheon.
It only fits that Gonel would win Featured Story with Lies in the Light, after winning Featured Image last time and, my god, I cannot recommend this story enough. It does its job well, using humour and various references to an excellent degree, but also taking the G2 story and flipping it on its head.
Set immediately after G2’s ending and continuing from there, it follows a group of Okotans and the Protectors attempting to unravel a conspiracy surrounding Ekimu. It appears all is not as it seems on the outside, and there are secrets and surprises abound. But it seems the biggest one is being kept by the Mask Maker himself…
Small details located here and there, while possible to miss on first read, make this story worth re-reading over and over, as well as the references to various shows and movies, as well as other things.
An amazing piece of work from the beginning all the way to the end, if Ode to All That is Spring didn’t show us, Gonel is definitely one heck of a storyteller. Check it out for yourself, and congratulate Gonel on another win!
Oh, that reminds me. If you want more info on the story, go check out Truth Behind the Lies, located on the story's talk page. Gonel gives more information about the story and explains some things. But don't read it until you're done.
Recgameboy is probably the oldest user on the site who has been editing in the last year. Granted, he did go inactive for several years, but he has recently made a return and has been busy.
He originally joined at the end of 2008, and created several pages in his original time on the wiki. These characters include, but are not limited to: Jaller, Hook, Nightslasher and Shaller.
Having written several short stories about his characters and filled out his pages with a wealth of information, Recegameboy has been an extensive library of content on our wiki that will last forever. And with his return to activity he has been updating his content, making it a consistently glistening gem of the wiki’s first ten years.
Let’s celebrate his return and wish him luck on his future on both the wiki and in his personal life. Give his articles a read as well, especially the ones he's been updating. Cheers.
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.
