So what is it? Unlike many kits, which exist to make comics and similar, this kit's purpose is to virtually build Bionicle figures, piece by piece. Granted, it may not be quite as fun as making them with your own bricks, but you can't get all the bricks in all the colours, can you? With this kit, you can combine parts however you want and make them whatever colour you like! Designing your own characters has never been easier!

 

Now, the kits!

 

2015 IS HERE!

 

2001 | 2002 | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | Phantoka | Mistika | Glatorian | Legends | Stars | Toa Edition

Exo Toa | Makuta | Titans | Order of Mata Nui | Hydraxon | Maxilos | Karda Nui

 

Archive <-------- folder containing all previous versions of the kits

 

I am currently working on a version for the 2015 sets. This will, I hope, grow to incorporate many other CCBS pieces, although it is very difficult attempting to recreate parts I do not own (helmets and weapons, mostly). Progress is somewhat slow, however, since I have a full time job, but I'm getting there!

 

I am also working on updating the colour pallette, since I feel a number of the colours are a bit rubbish and some are entirely redundant. Recolouring whole kits is a fair bit of work, though!

 

Instructions

I've made some instructional images that will hopefully explain how to use this kit (using Paint). Let me know if they help, if they're completely rubbish and if you have any questions.

I certainly have no objection to that. You'll probably manage to get things done much faster than I do. =P

Credit is only required if you're using parts from this kit in another kit or similar. Essentially, any situation where it might otherwise be seen as your own work. If you're just using the kit to build things and then displaying them for whatever purpose then no, it isn't. Credit would of course be nice, but I'm not going to demand it from everyone who decides to use the kit. It's there for people to use and have fun with. :)

Holy moly, Durahk, that's a big whooping revival if I've ever seen one, but since this is the comics forum, it should be ok. Still, this is a three year old topic, I mean just... wow.

 

Anyway, if I am to be on topic here, I always did enjoy to tinker around with this kit. Seeing the 2015 toa in Danska's sig... hmmm. Possible update to the kit, Danska?

What would you like to know? What you will do first is download the image with the desired parts you want. Then open a blank image file then copy and paste the desired parts into that blank file and place them together. It is a trial and error process until you find a design you like. Make sure to only copy the desired parts. If you cut them from their original file then accidently save it the part will be lost and you'll have to re download the original file once more.

I hope this helps you some...

Well, I was gonna wait until I'd updated the limbs a bit (given them all the option of the angle used by the Protector of Water), and then until I'd finished changing the colour palette of all the old kits, but you know what? Since you asked, I'll drop what I have onto the interwebs. :)

Son of a gun, Danska is back, too?

 

It's like my whole past is coming back to haunt me again!

 

HAHA, okay anyway, I like you've stuck with your style almost perfectly! It definitely looks like your work hasn't been aged at all.

 

Great seeing you back!

Hey, this old thing!

 

The 2015 sheet looks great! Good to see you're still working on DBB after all these years, haha.

 

One thing: I'm not a huge fan of my XPlode helmet any more. I really don't think it deserves a spot among your fantastic sprites, so if you want to remove it, please do.

You can use any raster graphics editing program. MS Paint is by far the simplest for this kit, since it doesn't have any bells and whistles that could interfere with a pure sprite, but if you're proficient with GIMP or Photoshop or Fireworks, you can use those too.

Now that I'm back with an actual computer, I've taken the helmet down. I'm not certain what the original looks like, but I'll trust your judgement on it.

You should be able to, yes. In fact, I'd strongly recommend finding something other than Paint. I find it incredibly frustrating. I have heard good things about GIMP, so that might be worth a try. I'm considering giving it a go myself.

P.S: I made my character thanks to your instructions!

 

I tried getting GIMP to work the other day. After spending ages staring at it while it was 'Querying new Plug-ins", I gave up. The process for using the kit should be basically the same, you just need to work out which tools do the same jobs. You'll need to be able to use

Select

Paste (transparent)

Colour picker

Colour replacer

Rotate

 

So I've almost finished converting all the kits to the new colour palette. Unfortunately, while working on the Toa Edition and all the Titan kits, one of the tools was set wrong and ended up messing up the colour schemes quite hideously. This has been fixed on all but the Toa Edition, which is a rather hefty job that I'm putting off for the moment. Still, should be done soon! Then I can get back to making new angles for the limbs, to stop the Protectors looking so silly.

Glad you like them! I hope your presentation goes well!

 

The Toa Edition is, I hope, now updated to the new colour palette. I'm not 100% sure there aren't any errors, but it's at least mostly fine. :)
