I could be still alive, or I could be dead. I don't even know myself...

Whoa. My brain hurt thinking about that.

To put it short, I'm kind if like Ciel Phantomhive, but:

+ parents

+ lego

- demon butler

- mansion

+ happy mood

I use them to store the instructions the sets came in, but I imagine that conceivably, in my college poverty, I could use them as soup bowls and cups.

They carry memories (not literally). I keep all of them in bags in case I ever want them. I also keep my Boxes.

I originally stored some sets in, but they took up a lot of space, so I stored them away in a sealed bucket.-Star

They sit on my BIONICLE Collection shelf, right behind each BIONICLE it contained.

Whenever I leave My house, it seems, my Mom throws away all of my canisters. The only ones I have left are Throwbot Turbo, Throwbot Jet, Roborider onyx, Pohatu (the original), and Lehvak-kal.

Just taking up shelf room and keeping utterly useless and fairly useful things in them.

Pretty much the same here. I store random small things in them and leave them on a shelf.

I dont own any canisters as most of the Bionicles I own now are second hand, minus Tahu Nuva, and even he has a second hand torso. Bare in mind I have 70 Bionicles as well

My canisters are good for one thing: collecting dust.While I used to use canisters for storing pieces, I've since moved to pick-a-brick cups and yogurt containers. I might still have a few pieces in some, but they're mostly abandoned in big garbage bags in a room somewhere.

They take up a LOT of room in my bedroom. I keep the characters in their respective canisters, and stack them, or analyze how it was marketed for the product (marketing major affects everything XD)

I got rid of my canisters. All I ever did with them was build forts out of them and then throw Bionicles into them knocking them over. I never kept my sets in them, took too long to pull them all out to play with them, so my sets stayed in a big bin while the canisters just collected dust in my closet.Though back in the day when the Bohrok first came out, they had the coolest Canisters imo. Because they had that little piece that attaches to the Bohrok's rear end right? So you can put the Bohrok into a ball and suspend them from the inside of the canister's ceiling, was really cool. I used to fill them with water and then have the Bohrok emerge from them, sometimes I froze them in the freezer XD

I only have a few left. If I ever had to move and take all my stuff with me, I'd store my sets in them so nothing gets broken.

I just have them on display in my "LEGO Room".They're pretty useless, although I hate the new bags that the HF 2012 sets are in.~MN~

THE ASHES - The not-so-long-awaited-but-somewhat-appreciated sequel to The Fire Chronicles.

THE ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF TAHU - The rewritten-but-still-somewhat-original comedy that started it all.

Hey guys, sorry that it's been a while, but with the return of BIONICLE I couldn't resist coming back to my old home. Can't wait to reimmerse myself in this great place!

The canisters I had disappeared into the depths of my house a long time ago, probably into the black hole that was my closet. When I did have them, I do recall using them to hold their figures, at least before I dismantled them and started building huge monstrosities.

I use them for holding the sets they came with -- almost all of my Bionicle sets are now in a box in the garage, and each set is in its canister.Posted Image
