Type Official Site

BIONICLEstory.com was an official branch of BIONICLE.com. Its purpose was to give BIONICLE fans knowledge of the storyline. It featured many different story serials that overlapped with each other, mini-movies, and games. It also contained information about the various characters seen throughout the years.

For the first half of 2007, the site had only the Barraki mini-movie and a "Coming Soon" message. This changed in the second half of the year when four new sections were added: a game section, a section on the Toa and one on the other characters, and a story serial section. In 2008, the site was entirely revamped to include information from all years of BIONICLE.

In 2007, a chapter of each of the three available serials was generally updated every other Monday. In 2008, a new serial chapter was typically added once a week. However, it eventually changed to one serial on one week, and two serials on the following week. This was then changed again late in the year, when two updates were made in a week.

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

2007

The old version of BIONICLEstory.com, with all of its old content included, was contained in the Archive section in later years of the website. However, it has since been deleted.

Game Port

There were seven playable games in the Game Port, featuring each Toa Mahri with his or her own game, and all of them in the final game.

Deep Sea Port

In the Deep Sea Port, the arrow keys were used to explore the Pit and learn about its inhabitants. Whenever the port cabin was visited, there was a tab marked "History" on the right. Clicking it allowed for quick access to the characters already found through the exploration feature.

Toa Chamber

The Toa Chamber provided basic information on the six Toa Mahri, including their Toa Tools and Kanohi.

Command Center

The Command Center was a hub center for the story serials and movies of 2007. It contained the following content:

  • Audio Download - Here the user could download the Into the Darkness chapters read by Greg Farshtey.

2008

The site was updated to consist of six total sections, including the main page. A navigational bar lay at the top of every page, while the main page included additional links, accompanied by images, to some of the sections. Various videos were also featured at the top of the main page, with a link to the latest story synopsis.

Latest Story

The Latest Story section of BIONICLEstory.com provided a brief introduction to the Karda Nui saga, as well as the numerous serials. Along the left hand side of the main page were links to the latest web serials.

Story Overview

This section of BIONICLEstory.com provided a summary of the entire BIONICLE saga. It divided the story into twelve chapters and linked each to a page with a larger, in-depth summary.

Heroes, Villains & More

This section provided brief biographies for most characters featured throughout the BIONICLE saga. The section was further divided into six sub-sections for each type of character: Heroes, Villains, Titans & Warriors, Matoran, Rahi, and Others. Each sub-section included a description of the category and a list of pages in that category. Each page in turn had a short bio of the character, a picture (as well as a movie link if applicable), and a fact chart including details such as mask, tools, primary color, element, and the first location where the character appeared.

In a 2009 update, the Matoran sub-section was renamed Villagers, and the category description was updated to describe Agori as well.

The BIONICLE Universe

The BIONICLE Universe section of BIONICLEstory.com gave information on the six locations that had been featured as the primary location for one or more years of the BIONICLE storyline.

2009

Continued from 2008, a sidebar on the lefthand side of the website's main page contained links to the latest web serial chapters. Included in the archives were the serials from 2008 and 2007. The center of the main page also had a video section, containing an advertisement for the Glatorian.

On the "Latest Story" page of the site, links were provided for the most recent chapters of the three stories: Empire of the Skrall under the heading "Blog", Riddle of the Great Beings under "Podcast", and Reign of Shadows under "Story Serials".

2010

The formatting of BIONICLEstory.com in 2010 continued the trend of the previous two years. The center video section was, however, changed into an advertisement for the BIONICLE Stars. Additionally, new web serials featured on the sidebar included:

2013

In June 2013, BIONICLEstory.com was taken down and was set to redirect to the LEGO.com homepage. In late 2014, the target website was changed to the revived BIONICLE sub-page of the LEGO website. However, all the media can still be accessed as an archive by JrMasterModelBuilder on the BioMedia Project.
