If we exclude this the gray-and-white avatar that everyone gets when they first join, what was your first avatar on BZP?


I believe mine was this Infected Hau (wow, it looks cooler than I remember).

I put this on the old board for about a day, then was like "Oh, whatever" and took it off. (Not quite this big, though...)

I don't remember what my first Avatar was. I know it was one from BZP, but I don't remember what it looked like. 


But I know that I like my current Avatar more, so its not that big of a deal. :P

It was from back when the forums had several built in avatars to chose from. I belive mine was either Takadox or Nidhiki.

I believe it was a plain and simple UDD symbol from the base gallery, back when you could choose your avatar from a set of pre-uploaded ones.

I think I first picked out a Vorahk avatar from the default gallery which existed back in 2006. After that I used a Hahli Inika avatar for a while.

Yeesh, taking me back...


I remember that one of the reasons I joined the site is because I thought that the Avohkii avatar from the base gallery was really cool, but I don't think I ever used it (or, if I did, possibly for the first few days only). If I had to guess I'd say it was the one of the two Vorahk avatars. Can't remember much of what it looked like but I'm pretty sure it was a full body image and not just a head.

I don't remember mine. It was probably one of the ones from the BZP gallery.


Less than a year later I began using some variant of a black Kakama, which I feel has sort of become my trademark symbol on here.

If it wasn't one of the choice BZP avatars, it was something I made for my very early kit. It's probably since been deleted from my computer.

For the longest time, though, I had Stardust Dragon as my avatar and banner. Now here I am with my present...setup.

I couldn't say what my very first avatar was, but among my earliest was Riley Poole from National Treasure. I don't think I ever actually had a Bionicle-related avatar. >_> Well, I take that back, I think I might've picked a preset upon initially signing up, but quickly decided to use my own avatar.  I can't remember what that preset would have been, though.  I had forgotten that was even a thing that existed.

Oh. Um I think it was one of the old pictures found on the forums when they had those. I'm thinking it was Lhikan if I remember right.

It was a default avatar of Tahu with a close up on his mask while lavasurving. I believe later it became Tahu Nuva since it matched my name. Why is my name Tahu Nuva 3.0? No idea, made it up when I was first joined on the spot lol

Oh my goodness, I can't even remember. I think I chose the default Tahu's face avatar to start off with? Not because I had any particular liking for Tahu, just because it matched my awful first screenname at the time. Or perhaps the Jaller one? I'm certain it was a classic Hau of some description, but I can't recall beyond that.

Probably something from the base gallery; if there was an Avohkii then that's certainly what I would have used...but then I soon went for my own drawings, and my avatar must've changed a thousand times since then, so no idea what it really was. :unsure:
