• How to make the Chronicler's company, as seen in the Mata Nui Online Game

    Compiled by fikko3107. Updated 19 October 2012. Contains 10 sets.
    I know that bionicle have ended, but it is still one of my favorite themes. The chronicler's company is the player(Takua)'s squad, of which he is the leader of. It appeared in the famous 2001 Bionicle game called Mata Nui Online Game, or MNOLG for short.(If you haven't played it, you may want to try downloading and playing it at http://bionicleonlinegamesarchive.weebly.com/mata-nui-online-game-2001.html just to get the back-story.)

Seriously. No, I mean SERIOUSLY. This will be your core set. you would need a few masks of 2001 in alternate colours. You will need a noble rau (Turaga Nokama's mask) in the lighter green for Tamaru, the noble ruru (Turaga Whenua's mask) in red for Kapura, the noble komau (Turaga onewa's mask) in the lighter blue colour and optionally the great pakari (Toa onua's mask) in black for Taipu. Getting these masks may be a bit difficult now, since it's been discontinued for more than a decade. That's what's bricklink is for, i guess.

Takua- Leader of the company, chronicler, soon-to-be Toa of light
first things first, we need a red torso and yellow legs. Jala (Jaller) Just "happened" to have both of that. Yes, this is a promotional, McDonald's set, but you're going to need a few 2001 matorans for this bricklist. better get bricklinking.

Secondly, i knew this is stupid, since this set is only for the unique light blue pakari. you could get the blue pakari from the masks pack, but it's just not the same...also, you could alternatively use the blue legs in this set, as some media, (such as the MNOLG) uses the instead of the yellow one.

Fun fact: Takua is the character with probably the most adventures. he had his own videogame, book and online serial of his adventures.

Kapura- member of the Ta-koro guard, one who moves fast by moving slow
As aforementioned above, he needs the mask pack. in addition, he needs a red torso, which means another Jala/Jaller. the red matoran legs were never used in matoran sets at all, so you this set.

Fun fact: Kapura does interesting things in the charred forest if you wait...(He farts)

Tamaru- deepwood wayfinder, champion Kahu-tamer, Matau's left hand man
Okaaay, maybe not the perfect torso, as the one in the game, since its bluer in the game, but it's perfect in other media. Use the arms and the legs. don't forget to use the aforementioned green rau mask.

Fun fact: Tamaru can swim, a rare trait for a Le-Matoran.(air villagers)

Kopeke- third and current chronicler, Nuju's left hand man
Matoro is all you need, plus the mask pack. the legs are perfect, and the mask is perfect.ish. Kopeke does have a 2003 matoran release, but he have changed his mask by then after an accident in a kolhii(a hockey-like sport, popular in mata nui. every matoran in 2003 are kolhii players) training and thus can't be used for this creation.

Fun fact: the decision that Kopeke became the new chronicler after hahli was based on an open vote on BZpower.com (a popular bionicle website)

Set contains Tohunga Hafu, silver (plastic) Kanohi Hau and enhanced CD (music + software). Set number and name not printed on box but on price tag and receipt.
Bricklist notes
Hafu- Master stone carver
This set literally contains Hafu. The problem is, this set is exceedingly rare, rarest on this list. I checked bricklink, and they actually have it! no wonder they call it "Cracklink".

Fun fact: Hafu is a real hard worker. even when he already join the company in MNOLG, he can still be seen in Po-koro (Stone village) working on waysigns, despite he being with you. his chisel sound can also still be heard.

Taipu- Strongest digger of Onu-Koro (Earth village)
you would only need this set(for the mask only) and the aforementioned Power pack set. There are other, cheaper ways to get the great Pakari in black of course, such as the mask pack.

Fun fact: Due to a mistake by Templar studios, the developer of MNOLG, Taipu has Hafu's mask (a noble ruru) and Vice versa. this was fixed on the sequel, MNOLG II, although Hahli, the protaganist of the sequel, mistakes him for Hafu on their first encounter.

Maku/Macku- Ga-Koro's Kolhii champion, expert boatsman
This set's name says it all. it's a McDonald's set, like the other matorans, but at least you only need one set...

Fun fact: Maku/Macku is the only matoran in the company although not the ONLY matoran that gets a name change. her name changed because of her heroics in the bohrok war, in a ceremony called naming day. In reality, it's because the Maori tribe sued TLG for unsensitive uses of their language. I checked what does "Maku" mean in Maori. it means damp. this is not as bad as the word Tohunga, what matoran used to be called, which means expert. Macku is still pronounced the same way though, as with the others which changed their names.
