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!

I had the privilege of reviewing BIONICLEToa’s drawing of Fatorak getting unceremoniously choked some time ago and now I get to do the actual article.
Though not the longest of pages, BionicleToa still manages to create a fully-formed character, and oddball adventurer of a Matoran who would rather wield the pen (as he is a Chronicler) than his Dagger of Honor.
Fatorak was originally assigned a stay-at-home post by his Turaga but his wanderlust and curiosity eventually led to him to seek out the intricacies of the Universe, namely the fate of an ancient Toa named Karhi, another one of BionicleToa’s prominent characters. The rest of Fatorak’s history, however, you'll have to find out for yourself.
This article also boasts a personality section and a lengthy Trivia section, putting the final touches on a well-written article. This page only leaves me wanting to find out more about the many mentions of original characters BionicleToa’s cooked up and mentioned on Fatorak’s page. All in all, job very well done.
It’s been a little while since we had genuine artwork featured on the Main Page, and BIONICLEToa has come to satisfy our craving.
A relatively recent piece, Escaping the Mountain shows Toa Collerak and Viatra jumping from the edge of a cliff towards the ground. Around them, seemingly metal tentacles sprout from the rock, swinging at them.
This is a visually striking image. The colors used contrast beautifully with each other. The bright forms of Collerak and Viatra “jump out,” so to speak, from the diluted background of the mountain, drawing the eye immediately to them. The idea of the mountain literally attacking them as they escape, and the metal tentacles are a very unique look for the artwork.
Escaping the Mountain once again illustrates BIONICLEToa’s creativity and artistic talent, and is certainly worth being featured on the Main Page.
This month, ComradeTorque presents us with Sterk, a renegade Toa Hagah of Fire who now forges his own path across the Matoran Universe. Equipped with a vast array of mallets, Sterk has a couple of nails to hammer down before he surrenders to the likes of the Makuta.
What is most striking about this creation is the sheer bulk of his frame. Some complicated TECHNIC work has been incorporated into the design to achieve this effect, with some commendable shaping from CCBS add-ons distributed evenly throughout the body. Adorned primarily in silver and red armor, Sterk brings a breath of fresh air to the tired Inika-builds of later BIONICLE years that so often relied on silver and gray hues.
Sufficiently different from 2015 Tahu in spite of their shared mask, Sterk commands quite a visual presence. Indeed, the blend of CCBS components and oldschool BIONICLE elements effectively positions him within the advanced building style synonymous with later years whilst remaining true to the toyline’s origins nearly two decades ago. The use of Minifigure blasters as added torso greebling is especially admirable in the eyes of this reviewer as is the sheer depth of his torso. Finished off with a number of toothed TECHNIC ½ bush bearings accented around his form, Sterk stands tall against a proud legacy of fanon Fire-Toa celebrated on CBW.
Following the exploits of the village’s Chronicler, Elisis, the narrative is framed by her desire to find a story worth telling, met with the same frustration that has tested and infuriated many scribes before her: a blank page. Over the course of the story, Elisis is approached by the citizens of Bo-Koro, namely her friend Kinla and the village’s protector, Toa Anuma, who offer her different counsel as she struggles to find a sense of fulfilment in the work that she does.
Set against the familiar backdrop of a Matoran settlement deep within the jungles of Bo-Koro, Chronicle is enjoyable, rapidly-paced and adorned with a number of colorful allusions to nature. Recounting sentiments universally felt by artists and content creators, Chronicle stands as a fitting counterpoint to the prospect of writer’s block. Invader has done especially well to dramatize the real-life obstacles and distractions that impede the writing of fiction within the realms of his own storyline.
You might have seen this month’s Featured User appear many times in the Recent Changes in the last month. That’s because PumpkinLordOLantern has been busy editing and creating articles.
PumpkinLordOLantern, also known as PumpkinJack6 originally joined the wiki in 2014, in the month of October. (Coincidence? I think not!) However, he went inactive shortly thereafter, before resurfacing a few times in 2015, and then again in 2018, before making an actual pledge to activity in the last year.
Since his return, PumpkinLordOLantern has begun building his own storyline. So far, he has created characters such as Voraya, Suyok, Ceyuli, Barynok, and Botilu. He’s also made a number of edits to canon pages, seeking to better the articles and the collective canon knowledge of the wiki.
I’m really impressed with PumpkinJack6, frankly. It’s not often that we have users return to activity, and it’s not everyday that their activity is quite as frequent as his. PumpkinLordOLantern is an exemplary user, who only has the wiki’s best interests at heart. I look forward to see more of what he has to offer as he continues with his storyline.
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 canon 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.
