    IC: Tekmo (Ga-Metru) Tekmo heard the pandemonium from the apartment window and-was that Toa diving out of the window? IC: Waveahk (Ga-Metru, Waterways) Waveahk rated Kovac's dive a measly six-out-of-ten, but if he could stick the landing...

    IC: Reliable Narrator | Barraki Island Capital “Come away from the window. You can’t hypnotize all of Metru-Nui just by staring at it,” said the soothing voice of Pridak as he lounged on the wide sofa he called a throne. Barraki Pridak was a warrior who loved comfort, pleasure, and his own achievements. His robes were white with red trim, silver bangles dangling from his wrists and the points of his mask as he swirled an ornate glass of bula berry wine. He watched Takadox staring out from the throne room toward a regal warship in the port. The blue armored Barraki’s hands were gripped tightly on the windowsill, his lips sneering and whispering curses. “Takadox I can’t hear you if you don’t speak up. You know this.” “Carapar did not have the right to take the mission right out from under me. He stole my prize. That orb was mine by right. The lands south of Destral are mine.” Takadox fumed and spun around, angrily gesturing toward Pridak. “Why do you let this happen? Why do you let him steal from me like this? After all my people have done for this cause, all the blood we’ve spilled, you just let him waltz across my borders and pis--” “I stole nothing, and we could hear you from down the hall,” Carapar replied, entering the throne room. His heavy footsteps echoed in the vaulted roof. They bickered in a large and ornately decorated throne room. Pridak never left except to wage war if he could help it, preferring to adorn every space with the trinkets of glory and victory on the battlefield. Tattered banners of fallen matoran lands formed the rug Carapar walked across towards his fellow kings. Kalmah Lord of Scars, the red warrior loved by his people, walked with him. His religious whips were wrapped around his arms as always. He tossed a war torn banner of another conquest on the ground, then kicked it toward Pridak. A mask bounced out, sliding across the stone floor where the carpet ended. Pridak tossed a pillow toward one of the piles of trophies near his throne. It jostled a heap of green armor, which rustled awake and rolled over with an aged cough to reveal a very much alive turaga of air. “What do you make of this?” Pridak asked. “A bad idea,” Nidhiki replied. “Cornering Metru-Nui's religion is only going to make it more aggressive. Artakha is a sacred land. Killing its leader isn’t doing you any favors.” “He was just an old man in a mask,” Kalmah said as he shrugged. His species were maskless air breathers, caring little for the ways of matoran or their needs after centuries of subjugation by a remote empire. "Besides, their faith is broken pile of lies. The truth should be known." Nidhiki rubbed his chin. “An old man and a pile of lies maybe, but a religious icon more importantly. His brother won’t take this well.” “Stop ignoring me,” Takadox blathered. The Barraki and the traitorous turaga ignored him. “Karzhani is just another old man with a mask,” Kalmah replied. Pridak nodded. “Mantax should be able to handle him alone, if he’s anything like his brother," Carapar suggested. “Where is Mantax, Pridak?” Pridak leaned back into his sofa and took a sip of wine. “He went to the front lines. Something about setting up a surprise.” Pridak’s wine glass lifted into the air as Takadox swiped it from his grasp. “I said stop ignoring me. Why do you let him insult my people like this? It’s unjust.” “You don’t get to have everything you want,” Carapar replied. “Stop whining about it. You were busy, I stepped in. The plan goes on. When I’m busy you’ll step in, as you always do.” “Are you implying something?” “No, I think I made it very plain,” said Carapar. The two barraki stared into each other’s eyes, rage filling Takadox’s and a bored glaze filling Carapar’s. Sparks flew between them. Kalmah stood by Carapar's side innocently, but Pridak noticed the warlord's whips loosening and his clenched fists. Takadox broke first, turning away grumpily. “Well, you owe me and my people an island for what you did.” He crossed his arms and stalked back toward the window to lean against the sill and stair at the sunset. Nidhiki chuckled. “You wage a war to destroy my people in the name of justice and equality and you squabble over rocks and islands? If only I was back in Metru-Nui. I could make everything so much easier and just kill her myself. I did it once, I can do it again." An uneasy silence filled the room. Pridak leaned forward, hands clasped in front of his mouth as he stared at the turaga who'd come to them with such a tempting offer so many moons ago. He'd been faithful, fulfilled his duties. Finally, Pridak whispered, “that can be arranged."

    well thanks! there's actually a Reason why she has a Tail Lore Wise. she's half Ackuten, a Subspecies of Okotans with Animal like Features Such as a Tail, and I guess Choroko seem to got it form her Mother side of the family. Moc Wish... i just thought it was a cool idea. for the side-by-side, Kivoda would of been Smaller if I didn't Modify him (I also updated Choroko sense then) but yeah, I'm glad you like it

    Since I have been on a G2 style MOC kick the last few months; I find your take on the style pretty interesting. A few nice things that really stand out to me: Your asymmetrical blue and orange colors. Its a great call out to the design of 2016's Gali. I used the same method in my own Hahli, since I think the splash of orange looks great on a G2 water figure. The tail seems to also be a nod towards Gali and her combination with Akida. The little Exo-Force robot arms on the feet are brilliant. Reminds me of scuba gear flippers. The trident is very well done and I think the integration of the spring loaded shooter is smooth. The skull mask is an interesting choice for the chest. It manages to look smooth and feminine, without seeming cartoonishly exaggerated. Those are some long legs, Choroko looks like she would stand a bit taller than her father Kivoda. Is the friction extender at the knee needed due to the weight of the tail fin? I imagine they might be, and if that's the case then keep them. I ultimately like the proportions of the figure though, but I kind of want to see her side-by-side with Kivoda to get a sense for the scaling. (*Ironically though my own ongoing WIP "Turaga Nokama" MOC is taller than Kivoda too, and in my headcanon she is Kivoda's mother... maybe the women just run tall in that family? ) As someone who finds the G2 style pretty nifty, I definitely applaud the chance to see more of it out there!

    I think fabSheers was probably thinking of the collecting poster that came with the packs, it has a little indicator of a mystery mask that shows the vahi, but in actuality it was the infected hau. they were probably planning to include the vahi before deciding to pack it as a bonus with the PC game instead!

    I would like a source on this. I don't know of anyone who ever got a Vahi in a mask pack, but would love to be proven wrong.

    Nice part usage on the torso, although I’m pretty sure posting Mocs are done elsewhere on the forums.

    Thanks -- you helped me fix my problem. Seeing your troubles with the display made me realize that that's actually the only issue. The music and controls work, just can't see anything. So, I turned off my newer graphics driver, used the default driver, and the game started working (or at least started up and was visible). I knew my comp sci degree was good for something! I still don't know if TQ3's the safest though, so I'll keep testing. If the display's the only problem I could probably host it.

    Why do ALL toa/matoran of fire, ice, earth, stone, magnetism, iron, air, gravity, plasma, plantlife and sonics have to be male? Why do ALL toa/matoran of Water, Lightning and Psionics have to female? Matoran/toa of light are the ONLY ones that can be either gender... so why? Didn't LEGO or the Bionicle story team ever think that that might have been a bad idea? I mean Greg bothered himself to go back and make Hewkii x Macku non-canon, and understand that they had already created a lot of matoran for each element but you know, I've always wanted to be a Toa of Water as a kid but because of that stupid rule I could never be. Plus each elemental tribe in the matoran universe comes along with its own general stereotype, most ice matoran are quite cold and not very social, air matoran for the most part are fun-loving and primitive, and some people might fit in one of those tribes than others, but because of that rule, they can't. It's especially hard on girls because they have such a limited amount of elements to choose from! I'm telling you if Bionicle is getting a reboot, that better be the first thing they change!

    That's also why the element restrictions exist IMO: to artificially limit the number of female Toa. I'm sorry but that just sounds awful. Females still ought to be marketed appropriately to boys, what if they start thinking that girls can't be heroes too? This is madness!!! D:
