Bio-Cup 2023 is Here!

It’s that time of year, the time all the Bionicle and Constraction builders on the Internet look forward to: the Bio-Cup! Several BioniLUG members are running the event, with a lot of the heavy lifting being done by Lord Oblivion while dviddy and Buttloaf are assisting with judging. And of course I’m sure many of our members will be entering their builds in the preliminary round, which is underway!

Best of luck to everyone, and I’m sure you’ll be seeing some of the amazing creations in our monthly MOC recaps and all over social media. Get building!

BioniLUG April 2023 MOCs

Last month BioniLUG members made a lot of cool MOCs, from dinos to plants to Bionicle GWP designs. Read on to see a few of the highlighted models.

Scuttlefish by Will Hafner


This mini squid in the old Aquasharks colors is adorable. The trans neon orange tentacles and blue drill head all work together well.

GWP Axonn by Kevin H.

GWP Axonn

A fun GWP design, this Axonn is ready to defend Voya Nui. His bulky look is well captured, and I especially like the axe design.

Renzari (2021 Self MOC) by Renzari Kenjo

Renzari (2021 Self MOC)

A self MOC with a custom mask, this guy looks impressive. And check out the swoosh of his cape!

Western Ash Dragon by MySnailEatsPizza

Western Ash Dragon

This is a really cool dragon. The way the other colors stand out against the mostly black build is very striking, and the pose looks great.

Speedclaw Encounter by donutsftw

Speedclaw encounter

Depicting a scene from the game, the robot looks very intricate, while the tree has a simple but natural feel to it.

Midnight Raptor by BallomNomNom

Midnight Raptor

This raptor looks quite fierce, and the body flows together organically with all the black elements.

Leaving by Dviddy


Built as a gift, the flowers on this tree look really great, and the curved brown branches look like the real deal.

GWP Kurahk by Lord Oblivion

We see another GWP Kurahk design, with some nice spikes and a fun staff design.

We Are Fighting Dreamers by Cody Avery Builds

This Naruto in miniland scale really captures his iconic sprint.

This fancy build is highlighted with the colorful flowers on the shoulders and staff. Pretty.

BioniLUG March 2023 MOCs

It’s been a while since we last featured the MOCs made by BioniLUG members, so let’s change that with a look back on what they built in March 2023. From mechs to dragons to trees to chefs to more mechs, there are a lot of cool builds. Read on to check them out.

Lord of Many Eyes by Iggs

Lord of Many Eyes

This guy is mighty creepy, and the torso is very “eye catching” as it were. He’s also got some interesting spiky armor, and that painted axe adds to the horror.

Isa by Max-Howell


This guy has some interesting texture, with the light gray and dark blue contrasting nicely. I also like the repeated use of the Tohunga heads.

Kurahk by Kraata Kink


This is a cool Rahkshi designed in the Toa GWP style. The design for the legs works really well for the Kurahk.

“LongArm” Exo Loader by donutsftw

"Longarm" Exo-Loader

This mech does a great job at utilizing teal elements and still having a streamline design. The detailed legs are especially nice.

Peppino Spagetti by Optimus Convoy

Peppino Spagetti

There’s a lot of character in this build. The micro food items are cute, but the chef is especially expressive.

Vastt, Toa of Gravity by MySnailEatsPizza

Vastt, Toa of Gravity

The purple and gold works really well here, and the intricate torso has a lot of great angles and greeble.

Tenebrae Blossomwood by Woomy World

Tenebrae Blossomwood

We don’t often get a lot of landscape designs from Bionicle builds, but this tree has a sleek but organic look, and the lavender leafs off the black branches really stands out.

Paladin L. S. Kobra by BallomNomNom

Paladin L. S. Kobra

This reptile looks ready for adventure. I like how the bulky armor fits around him, and the face turned out great.

Athaya by Aiden.Builds


The repeated texture looks really good on this dragon, and the Visorak fang as the horn helps keep the nice flow.

Tahu Toa of Fire by Calcifer

We’ve seen a lot of Tahu models, but the color shift on this one is very impressive, and that’s before you take into consideration the cohesiveness of the limbs and torso.

Rondo the Necromancer by Sarahtonin

This warrior looks quite tough, and showcases the speckled pieces nicely. Plus, that cape works.

Col-ti and Venco by Cement Addiction

This bug has some fun mechanical details, built from the spare parts from some Creator sets. Meanwhile the mech manages its shape with a few interesting designs too, especially with the blades on the chest.

MF-FS01: Flight Sentinel by Lord Oblivion

This mech looks to be really fast with a lot of nice angles, plus he has some striking colors. I also like the wheels and wires built into the torso.

K-R7 JUNO by Kitsua

Here’s another mech that means business, which again makes good use of angles and colors. Also, it has impressive heels.
