BIONICLE: The Wall was music project made by Pokermask. It was suppose to be based on the album of the same name by the rock band Pink Floyd. It was a supposed new years project before getting delayed to an unknown release date. Because of several issues with the production, the project was eventually cancelled. During july 2013, it was considered for a reproduction as a planned collaboration project, but due to the lack of support, it was considered "dead, for good".
BIONICLE: The Wall tells the story of a man called Pink that goes through a tough life with his father dying in World War 2, an abusive teacher, an overprotective mother and a cheating wife. All these traces leaves bricks to a metaphorical wall he's building to block himself from society. Soon he begins to face the consequences of it and slowly loses his mind as he's being trapped in his own ideas.
On January 15th 2012, it was announced that the project will be split into two episodes. Both are based on the album by the same name. An episode three based on The Final Cut was a supposed project, but these plans were later scrapped.

After the cancellation of the project, all of these were removed from the channel.
