So I Built...

I threw this together in about 40 minutes:

I haven't built a Bionicle thing in a few years. I threw something together back in 2010, and I'm pretty proud of the toros/head/arms, but the legs need work. I'm out of touch with the constraction medium.
 
But I am displaying at my LEGO Store's "Window Into the Community" display in April and decided upon one of two themes: Avengers Vs X-Men (based on last year's comic event) or Bionicle, because nothing sticks it to the man like displaying a 3-year-dead theme (as our LEGO conventions prove by being one of the biggest themes). (I've done this twice before. Once with Bionicle (with a WAMALUG kid) and another with space (with a friend). This time I'm getting the spotlight all to myself.)
 
AvX is only happening if I can craft a few things quick and cheap, like overturned cars and a building (sideways plates instead of brick by brick, methinks) for scenery, the Phoenix Force vs Iron Man's Phoenix Force mecha, the X-Men Blackhawk (vs an Avengers jet?) and then various bits of the two teams fighting.
 
That's if I get my creative juices flowing in the next couple of days. Otherwise I'm going to build a few Bionicle non-humanoids (I have 7 of those) and display Bionicle, because Bionicle is awesome.

Bigger things to come?

I love the yellow shell.

Very cute. Reminds me of Joltik a bit, in terms of being an adorable yellow and blue spider thing at least.

This model also makes good use of blue pins. They add a perfectly welcome splash of color without dominating the color scheme. Was this a deliberate design decision, or were these just what you had available at the time?

The face is quite neat on account of its simplicity. In fact, the whole thing has a certain economy of detail to it, which helps it out greatly. There's some semi-complex Technic work going on underneath the shell, but it's hidden away well.

I've created some assorted Hero Factory tablescraps this semester which I plan on making a topic for. I might do that today, in fact. Most are humanoids (at least in the sense of having two arms and two legs) but I still tried to be innovative in terms of design.

The blue pins were what I had, because I only have a handful of black fiction pins (and less grey frictionless pins), so save those for my more serious models where it really matters. (I also snagged some white pins for eventual use!)

 

Glad you like it.

BIONICLE NIGHTCRAWLER GO

Also, still jealous about those exclusive Phoenix minifigures from SDCC12.

Definitely jealous.

 

I was tempted to make some constraction Marvel heroes (aside from the 3 already done). Still tempting...
