| BIONICLE.com is a real-life article
BIONICLE.com is not part of the BIONICLE storyline, which means that BIONICLE.com should not be used to support storyline details or other canon sources.
BIONICLE.com was the official Bionicle/Lego website. There you can find building instructions, games and the Kanoka Club (an online 'club' where you can play special games such as MNOG or you can enter codes from Bionicle canisters/containers to get points). In 2008, the BIO. Codes unlocked prototype pictures of the Bionicles out then, and if you have a membership, you may also access the 2006 site, including the Story Archives, (where you can watch animations and access mini-sites from previous years) the Games section, (where you can play or download MNOG, MNOG2, VNOG, Stop the Morbuzakh and other games that have been long since playable) and also the Instructions Section (where you can find instructions for most Bionicle and combiner sets from 2001 onwards). The Bionicle theme has changed from year to year (the theme now is the Mata Nui Saga for 2010). There is now no Story Archive link on the Kanoka Club as of 2009.
On Friday, June 7th, 2013, LEGO sent an e-mail to a user, Shougun70 announcing the upcoming closure of the site:
Thanks for getting in touch with us.
I’m so sorry to hear you're having trouble on BIONICLE.com. We left the pages running without updates over the past three years, but they’re no longer supported by more recent Internet software.
Some of the updates on LEGO.com mean the BIONICLE® web sites and games on them aren’t going to function properly in the future. Our company motto is “Only the best is good enough”, so we closed the website instead of offering a poor online experience. The decision wasn’t easy, so we did what the tales of the Toa had taught us: to succeed in any mission we need imagination, new ways of thinking and the willingness to take some risks.
The BIONICLE range had great sets and a brilliant story, and it’ll always be very special to us. We know we’re lucky to have loyal BIONICLE fans like you. But I hope you’ll give our Heroes from Hero Factory a chance. Lots of our fans are really excited about the theme and it’s won the hearts of many who used to play with BIONICLE. Because it was invented by some of the genius minds behind BIONICLE, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
Listening to what LEGO® fans have to say helps us get better and better so I’m passing your feedback on to our web team.
