The Turaga Files Teaser

Yesterday I went into the basement under Advance in Copenhagen to recover some of the old stuff and I made this little teaser video to test my new GoPro setup.
Among all kinds of strange stuff I found what I had hoped fore; Products, promos, visuals and the "Black Box" containing all the original sketches that were part of creating the legend. Stay tuned for the unboxing and sorry for the shaky hand/head held camera.



  1. It's incredibly cool that you have the opportunity to show us all these materials! It feels like the secret service plunge us into their secrets. Christian, tell whether the others lined instrumental versions of songs Cryoshell? Once there was a Gravity Hurts, which I asked you to, once there was hope in indissoluble connection of fans and creators of Bionicle. Thank you!

  2. This is exciting! I enjoy behind-the-scenes material, so having the chance to see the original concepts and promos for one my favorite things in life is truly a spectacle. :)
    Thank you Christian; can't wait for more!

  3. Amazing! Can't wait for all of this to get out into the wild!

  4. Whoa, how nostalgic! This is super cool - I can't wait to see what else you dig up :D

  5. The Bionicle stuff is neat and all- but I don't think anyone here will be satisfied until we get the story of why Advance have a mounted rabbit with a hat in their archives.

  6. Faber, your generosity is amazing. This is very exciting for any Bionicle fan! I think it's very admirable how you're willing to connect with the fanbase in such a meaningful way.

  7. Amazing. Just amazing. Even owning one illustration would be completely mind-boggling. I would definitely frame it. Really looking forward to the giveaway. As mentioned before, you are VERY VERY generous. I'm sure you could easily sell them or hundreds if not thousands of dollars on BrickLink/eBay, but instead you are giving it to us fans. That is very kind and generous.

  8. This is simply the coolest thing ever, your legendary work in both Bionicle and Hero Factory has not gone unnoticed. You are an inspiration..!

  9. Thank you for giving us a glimpse of how the legend began. I cannot wait to see more! I only hope that whomever gets to hold the artwork and concepts and designs will post it somewhere in high quality for all to see and enjoy. This is an opportunity that should not be missed!
    Thank you again!

  10. Thankyou so much for doing this for all us fans!

  11. Is that "The Bionicle Story" thing the first Story Bible? Or is it something completely different? Man, I wish every fan could hold this stuff in their hands. Faber, you, and your work on BIONICLE, has inspired so many artists and upcoming writers and creative-minded people! I am so thankful to have witnessed BIONICLE from the beginning back in 2001, and I wish I could back and relive it all again, of course with my memory of everything wiped. Otherwhise I would've been that guy who spoiled everything while at the movies with their friends, annoying the crap out of them :P

    Anyway. Thank you :) One day it would be great if I could make something like this. I am an upcoming writet you see. Who knows? Maybe our paths will cross somehow :)

    Stay creative,
    Best regards,
    - Lukas

  12. 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
