Turaga beach giveaway teaser:)


 "I will clean up the beach and pack what I can carry. The future awaits and I want to travel light".

Now I am wondering if any of this old “driftwood” would be of interest to the fans out there. I want to send it back into circulation by giving it away to people who appreciate a piece of the "making of the legend".
I have everything from an old (unused) Piraka crew t-shirts to laser printed layout posters with pinholes from the actual presentations back in 2000. I was thinking of making an unboxing video of the old crate you see below and choose 10 or more items of interest. 
I will make a list of the items and ask you to put in a comment to participate in the giveaway. Just wanted to check if there was any interest out there. If that is the case you will hear further...

    ReplyDelete
  44. Early Bionicle content has been an important part of my creative development. It has inspired me to explore and develop my interests and abilities, more so perhaps than anything else. It would be an absolute honor to participate in a giveaway.

    If I might be so bold as to make a request, the original Bionicle story bible has always been something of a holy grail to me. Seeing how stories form and undergo development is one of my favorite things, and the story bible has always seemed an important part of that journey for Bionicle.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow - how nostalgic! I would indeed be interested in a giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Faber - I see you have the Power Pack CD and Cryoshell CD in there. Do you have any other music-related content?

    Yes, I think we'd all be interested in an unboxing video.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Did my last comment go through? If so, delete this one.

    ReplyDelete
  48. At first I thought the CD in there was Legend of Mata Nui...
    I wonder if there's any chance it's somewhere in the box.

    ReplyDelete
  49. This is perhaps the best news since BIONICLE's return; maybe better. I am definitely interested; I don't think there is a BIONICLE fan who wouldn't be.

    ReplyDelete

  51. I want to participate! Is there any chance that Bionicle: The Legend of Mata-Nui, developed by Saffire (2001) was available?

    ReplyDelete
  52. This stuff is great!!!! As mentioned before, you should sign some! I would love to participate!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wow, this is awesome. I'd love to participate!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Participation question! You're an amazing artist with a lot of talent, thank you for Bionicle, it had a huge impact on my childhood. When the island crumbled off of Mata-Nuis face, all the art of the half-Hau island came screaming back to me. That remains one of the most impressive surprises i've ever had, and im sill reeling from how integrated that concept had been from the very beginning. -applause-

    ReplyDelete
  55. This is like seeing historical artifacts; I'd be very interested.

    ReplyDelete

  64. Giveaway or not, I think an rundown of the items would be excellent.

    If you did it by year it would be the ultimate nostalgia rush.

    ReplyDelete
  65. To own a piece of Boinicle memorabilia such as this would be amazing! It would be a huge honor to win any single piece of it!

    ReplyDelete
  66. It brings a melancholy feeling seeing those wave one Bionicle things in a dusty old box.

    I still remember being absolutely fascinated by the mini-CD that came with the Toa. My friend had borrowed it to me and I was instantly hooked by the tribal robot concept and mysterious atmosphere.

    I would love to have the chance to own at least one of the items.

    ReplyDelete
  67. So... is BIONICLE: The Legend of Mata-Nui in the box?

    ReplyDelete
  68. An unboxing video would be absolutely amazing. The various forms of BIONICLE media are a huge part of what really made the line so special, in my opinion, and to see the original source material for it all would mean the world to myself and countless others.

    It's really great of you to do this. It's sad to see you passing this stuff on, but I really look forward to your future projects.

    ReplyDelete
  69. It'd be awesome to get ahold of one of these items!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Definitely would be interested in a video and giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  71. HI! Love your art and I would welcome some Bionicle stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Well, I would be lying if I said I wasn't interested.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I am interested. I would love to have some of your work in my collection!

    ReplyDelete
  74. The nostalgia rush. . .

    I am definitely interested in this!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Given that BIONICLE has always had a large creative influence on me, I would honestly feel honored to acquire all this inspirational work.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I grew up on Bionicle and it would make me so happy to get another small part of my childhood so count me in too!

    ReplyDelete
  85. It looks great! I think somebody from BZPower should receive some of these items to share its content to every fan. I am interested in getting one of these relics too. Bionicle is a huge part of my life :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. I am overwhelmed with nostalgia and the regret that comes from letting my parents get rid of my comics and canisters.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Been a fan since 2001, I would love getting a piece of Bionicle's history.

  89. This sounds like an awesome idea! Between the mask, comics, and the Style Guide in the picture, I see plenty of interesting things from Bionicle's rich history that would be exciting to own.

    ReplyDelete
  100. The hype is real. ;P I'd love some cool BIONICLE stuff- this was my entire childhood! (as it was for many, many people.)

    ReplyDelete
  101. I would just love you to take pictures and scans of all the concept art,so all this could be seen by the public.I'm working on my own project (a collectable card game)and would love to see how the art style of Bionicle developed, so I can get a foothold of my tcg's art style.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Wow, this is the motherload! Count me in! :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. Woah! Thank you for the opportunity! I'd totally be interested, as would others, it seems ;P.

    ReplyDelete
  105. As a lover of Bionicle from the beginning, this would be incredible!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I just want to thank you for an awesome childhood, I was first introduced to Bionicles when I was 4 when my brother bought his first Bionicle, ever since then I have bought a couple of Bionicles each time a new set was released. I would like to ask for something small or anything really.Thank you again for an awesome childhood..!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Bionicle!!!! As my favorite childhood theme in terms of art and story, I would love to have some of the concept art (so beautiful!!!!!!!).

    ReplyDelete
  108. Thank you for all the great memories and inspiring me with the world you and your peers created to make my own stories. I'd love to try out this giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I am a little late to the party, but would love to partake! The setting and the line played a major part in my childhood and in forming my creating thinking. Thanks for everything you have and are doing.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Even one piece from your collection would make my fandom complete! Plus if you have The Legend of Mata Nui game. I would be overjoyed to receive it.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Mata Nui shall live on in the hearts of the Matoran who kept him alive for so long. Just as this is so, the Legend of Bionicle shall live on in the hearts and minds of the fans who followed the tales so dearly to their completion. Count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I've been a fan of Bionicle since it debuted and I'd be very interested in getting my hands on anything like this. Count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Wow- how did I miss this post until now? Those style guides (and accompanying CDs) certainly look intriguing, as up until now has only seen the '01-'03 guide (with the original .psd files which I have spent numerous hours pouring through) and a barebones version of the '06-'08 guide without accompanying digital assets. I believe a few members of the project have already posted here, but I bet the good folks at http://biomediaproject.com/ would have a field day with internal style-guides and the like.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Just from looking at the top of this box, I can tell the unboxing video for this would be really cool.
    Totally interested in this.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Oh yes, there is definitely interest here! Especially if this box includes one of the Story Bibles, if you are allowed to do so, since I am myself a writer trying to learn his craft. And I have a keen interest in what made Bionicle's story work, and an "almost fanatic" interest in science fiction, fantasy and science fantasy in general. I've been with the line since 2001, my first figures being Tahu and Gali. Currently I am buying the old figures again, to replace my damaged ones, and to complete the collection.

    The style guides look interesting, and would perhaps be very useful for young artists.

    I would like to say, that every Bionicle content has been useful in the development of my own creative thinking. It gave me a spark of imagination that never died, and is still there. Thank you for all you've done for us fans :)

    ReplyDelete
  116. So intriguing. And it's only the top layer........
    This will surely be a giveaway of a lifetime that no true fan can miss!

    ReplyDelete
  117. These would be absolutely fantastic things to see. I must say, thanks for all the content you've put up here, and thanks for helping bring to life the epic of Bionicle. It's been an important thing to me, for a lot of reasons. So, thanks, Mr Faber, and good luck with your future endeavors, I hope they turn out well.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Oh man, that loot...

    One can only imagine the stories behind that box. And you can be sure there's interest Mr. Faber!

    ReplyDelete
  119. That would be stupid if I wasn't :D

    ReplyDelete
  120. I VOLUNTEER AS TRIBUTE wait... someone has probably made that joke already
    nonetheless, this is AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Nice! Very neat. Yes, I would be very interested in these things. But, I almost sense sadness. I must ask, are you leaving Bionicle? or leaving lego? If you are, can I just say, that you have been one of the coolest guys I admire. You have always impressed me with you're work and the stories you've made. Thanks for making Bionicle, but overall thanks for being Christian Faber.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Extremely interested! A video would be awesome and even the smallest mote of Bionicle related dust would overjoy me. The story behind each object would be very neat to learn.

  128. I Find this intriguing! I'd love to have a part of the history of my childhood love, I got Kopaka Mata When I was 4 years old, It was so intricate, but I loved it! To have an opportunity as an adult to potentially get this...It's Tear Jerking!

    ReplyDelete

  130. Huge BIONICLE fan here, would definitely be interested in this!

    And while I'm at it, I'd like to thank you for this website and all the things that you've shared with us on it. It's been a great experience!

    ReplyDelete
  131. BIONICLE was my an integral part of my childhood growing up: collecting, reading lore, and participating on several different forums took up a large share of my time. I'm positive older fans would be beyond ecstatic to see the original concept art and storyboards, let alone actually owning a piece of it.

    ReplyDelete
  132. It would be nice to own one of the pieces that built the greatest legend... so count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Mr. Faber.

    My name is Andre, I'm the owner of one of the biggest collections of Bionicle in the world. I'm missing only 8 pieces to have the only complete collection of Bionicle in the world. I'm opening a museum dedicated to Bionicle and I was going to ask you about the stuff you have here. If you would be willing to donate anything for the museum, I would be forever grateful. I'm looking for concept art, posters, anything really.

    Please let me know! I'd love to hear from you, we could discuss in depth more about my plans for the museum.

    Here is my email if you want to contact me. aph@eazytek.com

    Thanks again
    Andre

  136. I would love, love, love to have some of the old contents that helped shape Bionicle. I myself am a HUGE fan of Bionicle(aka: Half my Childhood) and the thought of having some of the content that allowed my childhood to be what it is today: Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Dear Christian,
    I don't know if this will ever happen, but I would truly cherish any momento that doesn't end up at the lego house. Bionicle was a huge part of my childhood. I made a lot of stop motion animations with them, drew drawings of them, and spent endless hours reading about them. I'm now an animation student, and I still love Bionicles as well as all of the fond memories I have of playing with them. I specifically remember one time I lowered my giant Mata nui figure over the stair banister with a yarn so he could be like a spy and hover over the ground.
    thank you for reading,
    ~lin
