“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.

Timing can be a very tricky thing at times, and for a great example of this, look no further than the Cities of Spherus Universe. Despite his brilliantly comprehensive Plan, it seems even Teridax cannot account for every variable. The postponing of the Battle of Bara Magna by about a day sets off a domino effect resulting in a handful of significant alterations from the Core Universe.
Ever the slightest changes in the course of the battle following the delay resulted in the very literal fall of Teridax. The Great Spirit Robot landed in a different position this time, and the five pivotal cities could be erected thanks to this. To protect the cities, a rule of five teams of Toa were established over time to protect the cities’ citizens. But evil was rising once again, this time in the form of rogue Vortixx and Toa, as well as the mysterious Cult of Teridax.
Toa Pozico and Karov Kurad have balanced well thought-out lore with realism in their joint universe, and this page is evidence for this. Their characters, Pozic and Kurad, (getting the weirdest sense of déjà vu as I type this, but can’t put my finger on it) stand on the eve of what is clearly a monumental struggle to come, and I honestly can’t wait to see more come of this universe. Two stories, Mastery's End and Deception of Honor have already been released in the universe, and I look forward to seeing time shed light on the next stories of the Cities of Spherus Universe.
Looks like Gonel has another win with his Featured Image, the cover for his newest work, Lies in the Light. Otherwise known as “Seizing Control”, the image, featuring the two masks of G2, yet positioned in a strange alignment, as Gonel explained to me, depicts a hand reaching out and, well, seizing control of the mask. The title, split like a domino, takes cues from Invader’s Dark Trilogy, while the shadow under the Mask of Control hints at a darker undertone that we’ve yet to see.
I’d go into more detail into what it’s all summed up to be, but I’ll save that for you to find out by reading Lies in the Light. (It’s awesome. Once you’re done, read the story’s talk page for more information and some things that may need explaining. Both are worth the read.)
All of that said, Gonel’s done a very good job, as simple as an image this is, but still managing to tell a powerful story. Celebrate his accomplishment by checking out Lies in the Light.
Sculpted from the cannibalized remains of Sakkhen, Rhinaria is a female Toa of Stone sporting a Noble Ruru and a very effective orange/gray color scheme. Armed with a pair of short Climbing Hooks, she has managed to dig herself deep into the hearts of several Recent Changes junkies.
From her creative use of the controversial orange Skrall armor to her tasteful incorporation of a CCBS large paw as chest armor, Rhinaria is chock-full of unique and inventive building techniques, along with a variety of smooth textures and considerate color distribution. Fitted with waist articulation and a highly posable frame, it is no surprise that this Toa of Stone has climbed to such heights over recent weeks. Perhaps she could one day give the great Merall a run for her widgets.
With yet another of his creations securing a spot in the Featured Creations, Windfall once again proves he is able to keep his Toa fresh... even after 30+ MOC blogs dedicated almost exclusively to the Matoran Universe’s guardians. We wouldn’t have it any other way and we eagerly anticipate the next blog update!
Situated on the idyllic and abundant island of Uniran, the narrative captures two Matoran at play. Locked in a heated confrontation with the Stick of Truth and the Stick of Victory, Kimp and Arrin masquerade as powerful Toa before traveling across the island in search of a mysterious device capable of fueling their fantasy: a spring.
Oh wait, I just got it...
Slice-of-life stories come around far too infrequently, and Ode to All That is Spring hits all the right notes for its genre. With such a generous helping of gags ad in-jokes worked into the dialogue, it’s hard not to appreciate this story for its comedy. Such breeziness is refreshing and appropriate on a wiki that prides itself with rambling sagas and daunting unfinished trilogies. Receiving near-universal praise and already elevated to the cultural consciousness of the community chat, one hopes for Gonel’s shortest story To Ascend to greater heights. A light-hearted romp from start to finish, Ode to All That is Spring proves itself a bite-sized serial worthy of the Custom BIONICLE hall of fame.
At long last. The fabled Featured User spotlight of Robby The Redshirt has finally come to light.
Well, Robby is a fun and innovative person and seems to have been more attached to the second generation of BIONICLE as opposed to the first, seeing as most of his pages and edits relate the Okoto storyline.
Robby has written a couple of stories set in the second generation continuity, such as the The Labyrinth, a story focusing on the exploration of the Labyrinth of Control and The Great Sea, a story/guide drawing much inspiration from BionicleChicken’s The World of An Endless Ocean. The young lad also brought it upon himself to create a page for the Mask Maker Guild, a headcanon developed by our very own senior Bureaucrat BobTheDoctor27 and added his own host of members, among whom are characters from the first generation of BIONICLE brought into the second.
Sadly, however, it seems that Robby’s time in the community has come to an quick end, as he hasn’t been seen in nearly two months. Much like so many other users over the course of our history, Robby came, left his mark, and then vanished. As a community, we are grateful for those edits and the short time we have had with such diverse and unique individuals, and it is sad to see such enthusiastic people disappear. Their edits add incalculable measures to making our wiki the largest devoted BIONICLE fanfiction site on the web, and we could not be the site we are today without them.
So whether or not he decides to come back, he, like so many other users, has indeed left an impression on our community. Here’s to them all.
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.
