Hi all! Gringat the Repugnant here once again with a continuation of my Community Chibi Project.
This is a series of smaller scaled MOCs based on the Self-MOCs of community members.
I’ve been doing this, on and off, since 2011, having moved the project from MOCpages to Deviantart and finally here to TTV in 2016. After over three years of suggestions and builds, the old post is too full to post another MOC!
I don’t pick the characters anymore. Instead, I take suggetions from you guys and put all the submissions into a hat to draw at random when it’s time to build a new chibi. All the unused suggestions are still there, but if you’d like to submit one you can definitely do so below, just make sure to follow these guidelines:
- You can NOT recommend one of your own self-MOCs. It must be the self-MOC of another member of the community, either here on TTV or elsewhere.
- You can NOT recommend the same self-MOC twice, though you can recommend a self-MOC that someone else has recommended already. That means their name will be entered again and will be more likely to appear.
- You must provide a link to or a picture of the self-MOC you recommend otherwise I’ll get confused.
- You can recommend multiple self-MOCs, but don’t go overboard and post more than 5 or so all at once.
- Your recommendation does not have to be a BIONICLE-themed MOC.
- You can recommend any self-MOC; they can be from anywhere - Flickr, MOCpages, BZP, CBW, Instagram, Deviantart, the list goes on, we’re spread pretty widely.
The aim of all this is to get as broad and varied and representative of the community as a whole as I can be with the series.
Every six chibis will have their parts pooled together and combined into a Chibi Nui. Each Chibi Nui has its own place as a character in the Cyclic Plane Storyline.
Chibi Series #9
17th June 2020
Solaris, self-MOC of @Solaris, suggested by @Dragon_Ben !
Unfortunately the original topic post’s missing pictures, but I did find an old video on YouTube that still showed him thankfully!
Chibi Series #8
12th June 2020
Chro, Master of Darkness, self-MOC of @Chro , nominated by @Likus and @Voxumo !
Vladek’s sword seemed perfect to match the shape of the larger weapon on Chro. Had a lot of fun playing around with technic shapes and trying out those hands.
6th June 2020
Monarth the Dream Warden, Self-MOC of @Monarth , suggested by @Ghid and @Toa_Radrix !
Somewhat appropriate to have both Monarth and Jayfa in the same group, since he’s also beaten me in a Bio-Cup The head was an interesting challenge.
31st May 2020
Jojo, Self-MOC of Josiah Lang (younger brother of @CallanLOF ), suggested by… me!
Had real fun making this one, integrating obvious gears, washers, studs and Znap parts to make him more toyish.
29th May 2020
Archeron, Self-MOC of hail_archeron, suggested by @Toatrex !
So, it’s been a while. I’m back from university, and the lockdown is giving me time to build. Since Archeron is primarily on Instagram I’d never encountered him before pulling the name out of the hat - unfortunately he seems to have disappeared.

Toa Edictarts, Self-MOC of EDICTARTS, suggested by… me!
His Toa Lurax had a MOC version by me (April 2010) because I didn’t have the parts to make Edict himself how I wanted. Of course this one still isn’t quite right but the Tahu 2015 chestplate really helps tie the mask and armour together!
EDICTARTS isn’t active at all anymore as far as I can tell, but he introduced me to some of my favourite video games back in the day.
10th July 2019
Jayfa, Self-MOC of @Jayfa, suggested by @EmperorDuckie and @Jakanader!
Given the thrashing Jayfa gave me in Round 1 of this year’s Bio-Cup, might as well finally let this guy see the light of day. He’s been waiting to be posted since long before the contest began. That head design was incredibly hard to figure out and I’m convinced I still haven’t managed it, but hey. ;)!!
