  1. Bricks for the decay side? What sort of pieces would you consider to fit that bill? Just curious, not planning on changing anything, I'm simply a bit puzzled at the idea.
  2. I tried to make it feel Ice Planet related as much as possible with the coloring, though I should get some replacements for the yellowed pieces.
  3. It's Matoro's colors (Inika and Mahri both had silver and white with blue) I don't see how they're "dull".
  4. http://orig10.deviantart.net/0ceb/f/2017/114/6/b/qyice___ice_planet_mixel_by_mate397-db703d1.jpg So this little fella didn't exactly turn out as planned, but still a cute little fella regardless. http://mate397.deviantart.com/art/Qyice-front-676895792 http://mate397.deviantart.com/art/Qyice-side-676895959
  5. http://orig07.deviantart.net/d28f/f/2017/114/f/d/matoro_the_spirit_touched_by_mate397-db6zwch.jpg *Matoro came from a far away island, according to him his village used to part take in the annual Hammer Flush tournaments back in the day, and after hearing the defeat of Makuta and his minions he was sent. His appearance at first sight caused unrest among people of Okoto. His skeletal arm and green glow unwantingly reminded us of Kulta and his fellow skeletal friends. Though he assured us he has never heard of Kulta, his story to explain the arm didn't make us feel any better. Matoro is something that on his island call a 'spirit touched' able to see both the world of the living and the dead. He can talk to those who has long passed away, even able to step out of his body to traverse the spirit realm but such ability comes at a price. The more he uses it the more his body decays and in the end forever will he be part of the world of the dead.* Well, this one has been on hiatus for far too long, not to mention it was supposed to have ribs on the decaying side, but that didn't work out in the end, same with the chest, it was supposed to be with the hockey chest piece but that just didn't work out with the CCBS torso shell. All in all I'm very satisfied with the out come, the torso's build got pretty good in my opinion, so many small parts merged into one big component. This MOC is mostly made out of left overs from the Makuta combiner and the parts of the BZP raffle Jango Fett I won way back (along with another Hero Pack) among other things.

  6. At least I can slowly build my own Imperial Army, long live the Empire!
  7. Skeez got the short end of the stick as I'm very low on Mixel related pieces, fella most likely will get some tweaks at some point.
  8. Burlzz So, this little guy has been around for a while, and it was time I posted the pictures about him and his friends. He is a barrel of alcohol as anyone can tell and a very cheerful one too. He just loves to share a drink with others. http://orig07.deviantart.net/205e/f/2017/038/7/3/burlzz_by_mate397-day9eo2.jpg http://orig14.deviantart.net/1325/f/2017/038/4/1/burlzz___side_by_mate397-day9f32.jpg http://orig11.deviantart.net/e679/f/2017/038/3/8/drinking_budies_by_mate397-day9f3x.jpg Digzie An eager digger and always ready to work. http://orig03.deviantart.net/aea7/f/2017/038/a/8/digzie_by_mate397-day9hbg.jpg http://orig07.deviantart.net/09cb/f/2017/038/a/a/digzie___back_by_mate397-day9hfd.jpg http://orig01.deviantart.net/7f2a/f/2017/038/c/a/building_partners_by_mate397-day9hhk.jpg Skeez This fella is Ice Planet based and will have a buddy soon, but for that I still need some pieces. http://orig05.deviantart.net/55bf/f/2017/038/4/3/skeez_by_mate397-day9ing.jpg http://orig02.deviantart.net/1bfc/f/2017/038/d/0/skeez___back_by_mate397-day9ips.jpg http://orig08.deviantart.net/31b1/f/2017/038/6/8/mixel_trio_by_mate397-day9is3.jpg http://orig04.deviantart.net/9651/f/2017/038/7/3/a_big_mix_by_mate397-day9jj1.jpg
  9. Neat, I only found it in a darker shade of gold
  10. You do know SW and Friends sets did co-exist with G1 sets back in the day right? Even Marvel sets if you really think about it, with those movie studio sets and G1 was still their flagship for some years, because they put effort into it. Whatever process was behind G2 clearly had something wrong, there were so many great stuff left on the floor cut out, and instead of backing Bionicle and treating it with the respect it should have gotten, since it pulled Lego out of the gutter back in 2001, they just tried to mimic 2001 watering it down heavily and not advertising it properly, to me that feels like they were not too eager to do this from the start. A reboot that could have been a glorious return of the phoenix that is Bionicle, rising from the ashes was nothing more than a cardboard cut out with some confetti in the end. Bionicle didn't need to fail for any of those things to happen. So I don't see why you'd think Lego would be any less disappointed with its failure than the fans are. From the start Bionicle was given a shoe string budget (and most was probably blown on those gold masks) to work with and that showed from the quality of the web animations while Nexo Knights and Ninjago started off with their own TV series from the get go, and the Netflix "series", Journey to One, wasn't anything to write home about, it was heavily rushed riddled with errors. Not to mention the terrible business decision of not even trying to advertise it like the other lines but instead "leave it up to the older fans" as they put it to market it for kids.
  11. It's almost like Lego wanted Bionicle to fail this year... Netflix series was below average and the line was pulled a year early, Nexo Knights is probably going to start season 3 soon, Elves on Netflix soon, Ninjago a movie and a season soon. Not gonna lie, I'm a bit salty.
  12. I didn't make the print, so I can't really do much about it, but it's still better than nothing.
  13. You could always try Modalt? True, at some point I'll ask him about it.
  14. http://orig12.deviantart.net/2d21/f/2016/274/d/0/turaga_nui_by_mate397-dajiph2.jpg Originally I wanted to build the actual combiner but then I thought why not make it into a MOC.

  15. http://orig15.deviantart.net/32c5/f/2016/274/6/5/turaga_lhikan_by_mate397-dajil91.jpg I've been wanting to build a Turaga Lhikan for a while now, and finally got around putting it together. No idea what's with the focus on this, might have made the camera move, gonna retake this shot when back at home.

  16. http://orig06.deviantart.net/8c9d/f/2016/274/4/9/makuta_the_mask_maker_by_mate397-dajifpk.jpg This is the "mirror-verse" version of Makuta, where instead of Ekimu he went to power up for battle, with his crystal warhammer. The chest print is from a TTV thread, either from the JtO Makuta or Overlord Makuta threads, I don't recall.

  17. I know, sadly I don't really know anyone that'd do that kind of paint job.
  18. http://orig04.deviantart.net/5f3c/f/2016/267/0/1/g2_tohunga_makuta_by_mate397-daiqbsd.jpg Also got my BrickLink order that had the last pieces needed to make this little guy. And yes I commited some "heresy" as it's referred to, by painting the Hau and am armor addon (and yes I know the Star Wars Rouge One droid had that piece in black, but most likely it would be 3x more expensive than the silver or the other two colors) Comparison: http://mate397.deviantart.com/art/Makuta-2001-2016-636124071 http://mate397.deviantart.com/art/Makuta-From-Mask-Maker-to-Nothing-636124308 http://mate397.deviantart.com/art/Makuta-From-Titan-to-Protector-636124657 And just a little something for the road https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26PRhCJtgPQ
  19. I was attempting a more wasp-like anatomy with the very long and thin legs, don't really see what else can be done to it.
  20. http://orig15.deviantart.net/f98b/f/2016/253/8/e/waspix_by_mate397-dah5qr6.jpg *After the events that took place on the celestial body that is referred to as 'Savage Planet' Hero Factory HQ dispatched a recovery team to help the healing of the planet. An injured inhabitant was found and taken into medical care, once healed the local was also slightly enhanced by our technology and became the representative of his planet and an honorary member of the Hero Factory crew.* Finally got around to take proper pictures of this revamp, its been gathering some dust for a while now >_> And probably the first MOC that has some system parts integrated into it (just the two on the torso), and they fit it quite well I'd say.

  21. Never heard of this series, is it some expanded universe based thing or just a different angle on the things we have already seen?
  22. The creature reminds me a lot of my bird that I based on Agil's build http://mate397.deviantart.com/art/Makuta-and-his-bird-616987486 Just a more evloved version or fused with this in a way http://mate397.deviantart.com/art/Silverbeak-Buzzard-528874983
  23. Ah the Tohunga form of Makuta, he wanted everything and became nothing in the end. I really like it, also kudos for being able to keep him this small.
  24. Didn't think someone would make a MOC of the Game of Thrones theme, from the front it looks good, but the back feels very empty personally.
