Aaron Is Awesome
Mata Nui Island Project
So for our Mata Nui Island Project, people kept complaining that we didn't end up including the Kaukau waterfall. My original idea was to use a Kaukau mask, but that would've been far too large. Next was to use a mini mask from the old Bionicle Pens, but those were hard to get ahold of. (Update tho, Swert did come across a complete collection, so there is a future project coming out of that.) Besides, the pen masks wouldn't have blended in with the landscape as well.
So this is where Nuju Metru came in.
Aaron's like totally famous for his customized LotR sets, and he helped us with the short story contest prizes by adding some decals to the fig prizes. They were amazing. So I paid him in Collectible Minifigures to apply some decals to some 1x2x2 tan bricks and create mask statues that can be added to our island. And they turned out wonderfully! I can't wait to add them into the designs, so that we can realistically have a Kaukau waterfall and a full Quarry setup on our island!
(I also bribed him into putting on some decals for his Eowyn fig, which can be seen here, That's why he's doubly awesome. But I did send him all the bricks and everything... only one he traded me for was the Hermione head.)
