Since I was three years old I have always cherished Bionicle and every year since the initial debut of the series I have religiously collected every set lego has released. With every set that was unveiled, I saw how their designs changed and the ways of assembling the parts increased. Knowing this intrigued me even more because I wanted to be how they worked and how they were built, material wise and the structure, so I could replicate the process and construct my own unique figures. First thing I learned about Bionicle which opened my eyes to what I could make was the ball and socket joints which is the basis on how make more.
