Type Official Website of BIONICLE

BIONICLE.com was the Official BIONICLE website. Kelly McKiernan, previously Administrator for BZPower, was BIONICLE.com's head webmaster.

On June 19, 2013, BIONICLE.com was shut down alongside BIONICLEStory.com.

On September 24, 2014, the website was reinstated, with a teaser page for the 2015 BIONICLE return, though the domain itself still redirects to the main LEGO website. Then, on October 9, a new promotional image was added, along with character bios.

The Site

The site consisted of 6 sections: Products, Games, Downloads, Story, Fan-Made Models Gallery and the Kanoka Club, later labeled as "Bio Codes" in the Main menu. In the Home Page, there was a rectangle with the chapters of the Mata Nui Saga. Below was a marquee that showed BIONICLE news. There were also links to the Building Instructions, Gallery, Downloads and to a BIONICLE: The Legend Reborn section.

Products

The Products section of BIONICLE.com was made up of short set bios and links to other sections of the site. In general, the products section provided information on individual sets released every year. Although it was removed from the main header of the site after the sets were discontinued, it was still accessible until the site was shut down.

Fun Zone

The Fun Zone section on BIONICLE.com listed every official BIONICLE game for that year. Readers were able to play these flash and Unity 3D games by clicking on thumbnails provided on the page. A list of older games used to be accessible through the Kanoka Club. It also had a Movies section with some CGI movies from 2007, 2008, 2009, including BIONICLE: The Legend Reborn teasers, and 2010.

Downloads

The Downloads section of BIONICLE.com provided a wide range of media items, which consisted of Desktop backgrounds, MP3 songs, posters, screensavers and desktop icons. Readers could download the items via buttons located on selected areas of media.

Story

The Story section of BIONICLE.com provided information on the current story year. It consisted of storyline bios, weapons information and comics (only for UK and US), which the readers could access to individually through the links located on the Story main page. Sections such as storyline bios provided flash animations of the characters, some of which were animated clips, such as those of the Glatorian. The story section was supported by BIONICLEstory.com.

Gallery

The Gallery section of BIONICLE.com was a section where people around the world could upload their own personal creations for others to see.

Bio Codes

Formerly labeled "Kanoka Club", the Bio Codes section was where LEGO club members could submit codes found on sets in order to redeem stickers for use in My LEGO Network. More information could be found on the Bio Codes page.

BIONICLE: The Legend Reborn

The BIONICLE: The Legend Reborn section showed some teasers from the movie, which could be watched in fullscreen mode here, a synopsis of the movie and some information about the main characters with corresponding movie screenshots of them.

Ask Greg

The old logo

Ask Greg was a section of BIONICLE.com that ran throughout the latter half of 2004. It gave fans the chance to ask Greg Farshtey questions regarding the BIONICLE universe. Thousands of questions were sent in, and Greg was only able to answer a few every couple of weeks. The service, while popular, was ultimately shut down in early 2005 because of the large number of questions, many of which were easily answered by looking at the website and some of which were completely pointless and off-topic. Ask Greg was re-opened on the 2007 version of BIONICLEstory.com. This time his questions were filtered by the web-team, and several good ones were sent to him every few weeks. The service was removed in the 2008 version of BIONICLEstory.com.
