EDIT: I took second place in the preliminary poll! Thank you to all who voted for my creation and good luck to the other finalists.
Pose 1 | 2 | 3
No Fire Front | Back | Back Arms Folded
Leg Detail 1 | 2
Mask 1 | 2
So, here are some of my boring thoughts on the matter:
The most difficult thing for me was to decide on something that appeals to both the BZPower members as well as the public at Brickfair, which are more often than not to very distinct groups. Unfortunately I did not have the time to create what I wanted that I know appeals to both groups (something big ), but I did what I could. The basic idea came from Maxilos' torso design, which is, in my opinnion, just about the best designed set in the entire Bionicle line because of the posability as well as the shape. The mask was actually something I created several years ago for two of my self-MOCs (Phantoka and Mistika). The overall design is actually kind of a cumulation of the years of Bionicle as well as Technic figures from 1999-2000; I used a gear from the Silzers series, as well as pieces that were made for specific years, like the Tahnok Shields.
EDIT: I guess I should mention that a lot of my red parts are being used in another creation right now, and I am NOT taking that other MOC apart for a while.
Oh, and I actually have six orange Pakari in total; I couldn't figure out how to put the last two on.
Storyline-wise, I'll do a short write-up like the ones in the Dark Hunters book from The Shadowed One's perspective.
But for now: Pyraxx was once a Matoran who volunteered for experimentation for a Nynrah Ghost project. The main goal of the project was to allow Matoran to tap into their elemental power without the need of transforming into a Toa. The project backfired and now Pyraxx has been hideously mutated and continously exhales enormous amounts of fire (much like the Kardas Dragon with energy). The mask and tubing allows him to transfer the fire to his wrists to use as weapons as well as his out his back for exhaust purposes. Since the fire is directly controled by how much Pyraxx exhales, the longer he is fighting, the greater his power. Although he does not have access to his Kanohi Pakari, Pyraxx is incredibly strong. He is also very clever, however the procedures he endured caused him to go insane. Therefore he is only sent off on high-damage missions (usually by himself) and kept off Odina as much as possible. He is also impervious to fire and heat as well as lava due to the experiments. Pyraxx can also use the fire out of his back hands to use as a means of flight. The only real danger he faces is against Toa of Air because they can cut off his air. He recognizes that they are a threat and eleminates them first.
Thanks for looking. Please post your comments.
