Bionicle House 01
, on Flickr
A while back, somebody was complaining about the Bionicle system's limitations, and said something to the effect of "You can't build a house with it." To me, that meant, "Challenge Accepted!"
This is a fairly basic design made primarily using limb elements, with the interior supported with technic beams and such. I ran out of Rahkshi legs in dark bley, so I used some in classic dark gray as a stand in. I can't really tell the difference in person, but it shows up on camera.
Funnily enough, I ordered some extra legs in bley... and they came in classic gray. >.< I was planning to add windows in addition to the door, but I didn't really have a way to fit them in.
It's not the most impressive model, but I think the concept gets across, especially with the elements I limited myself to. It could probably be more detailed at a larger size... but well I don't have that many limb pieces in the same color.
This is also my entry for the BZP September Flickr Contest. I had an earlier entry that was toeing the system ratio line and was photographed using a black light, both of which are apparently against the rules. (I mean, I get the system ratio, but the black light? I thought we were not allowed to edit the content of the MOC after
the pictures were taken. Oh well.) But for this one, there's no way that anybody could claim it violates the system ratio.
And that's why I'm entering this, cause it has no chance in Krazahni of actually winning.
