|Usual Online Time||Occasionally|
I'm here to try and help pick up issues with missing images, and provide new pictures for Bionicle products where they don't exist in good enough quality.
As of writing this, I'm a 20-year-old unironic-opera-using student working in the IT industry. Somehow I got far too deep into this fandom and accidentally ended up video-calling Eljay that one time.
So growing up we didn't have much money. I remember back in the early '00s, my parents would go through charity shops and second-hand sales to buy toys for me and my siblings. One day, I remember getting a bunch of these weird robots. I think my first sets must have been Pohatu, Lewa, and Onua in around 2003. They likely came from charity shops. When I was a kid, I really just loved playing with the toys though. I knew very little about the rest of the series, or how deep and rich the universe ran.
Fast forward to 2017. It was a bad year. Like, really, really bad. BS01 isn't the place to get into that, but it's important to know that late 2016, early 2017 I met a character called E.B. "Egg" via a mutual friend on Facebook. This is where I fell. Nostalgia bit me. And I got sucked into the realm of Bionicle Maskposting. Over the following year, I invested far too much time and money into the series. By the end of 2018, I had every Generation 1 Constraction set, and almost every Kanohi, Krana, and Quest for the Mask card available. Somewhere in 2018 I encountered a few more figures and gained some traction among my Bionicle peers, though it didn't get much deeper than niche Facebook groups I learned a lot through people like Swert, Andre (Mask collector), and Eljay Johnsenn.
And now I'm here. Adding what I've learned to an amazing community-operated Wiki page.
I've seen people use their user page to share what sets they have, but as I've got at least one of every constraction set released in Generation 1, I think it's easier to show what I don't have.
Recently I've been collecting more obscure toys and collectibles, which I aim to share photos of here to help grow the library we hold here at BS01.
I like masks.
There are a few sets I still need. Some of them are "i have these", and others are "i need these". Feel free to contact me if you're looking to sell or trade!
I need the following cards:
|BIONICLE: Quest for the Masks =====||Card #197; Cards #221 to #310 (All Rahi Challenge cards)|
|BIONICLE: Bohrok Swarm||All|
|BIONICLE: The Bohrok Awake||All|
|BIONICLE: Toa Nuva Reconstruct||All|
|Phantoka Battle Cards||All|
|BIONICLE: The Legend Reborn||All|
I am missing almost everything here. I've only got a couple sets in this, but then, I mostly focussed (obsessed?) over G1.
I need these before I can call my playset collection complete:
|8894 Piraka Stronghold|

When Axonn was bored, he accidentally slaughtered thousands. Until someone offered him a job.
"When the Hand was disbanded, Axonn was bereft of purpose; he resorted to conquest, becoming one of the most powerful and feared beings in the universe. Whole cities fell before his axe, and he eventually conquered a number of the Southern Islands. Hydraxon, a fellow member of the Hand of Artakha, later approached him and offered him a membership in the newly formed Order of Mata Nui.[BEU, p. 46]"
— BS01, Axonn
Hopefully I'll get a few more of these, but these ones I think I'm legally allowed to use.
