I recently purchased a seemingly complete Toa Lhikan & Kikanalo set. It had a few missing pieces and a few more in the wrong color; I've already ordered replacements. Bad news is, one of the "Greatswords" has a snapped axle, which I fastidiously glued and now it's barely noticeable, but considering I went on a buying spree not long ago specifically to get every broken piece I owned replaced, this one exception will probably get on my nerves pretty soon. BrickLink has a few Greatswords available that are either up for sale by overseas sellers that don't ship to Europe or just a bit too expensive for me to feel too great about placing an order. Hence the reason I decided to go ahead and ask if anyone around here might have one or more of those pieces lying around. I think I'd feel okay paying around $5 for a single piece (although that's negotiable, of course) and I'd also rather have it shipped from within Europe so that it's less expensive and traceable. But honestly, I'm open to anything. Let me know.
Gamut Hello yet again, this MOD of the protector of STONE is part of my quest to mod every protector. I now present Golem, a member of the Six. He was the first protector to be killed by the traitor, Viper. His story is linked to the other protector mods. You can check out their links in my Sig. Protector (Guardian) of Stone - The Golem's Background story The Region of Stone While the title of "protector" meant the village head in almost all of Okoto, this was not the case in the Region of Stone. The duty of protector in the Stone Tribe was split into two heads, one of Guardian and the other of a Chief. The Chief was the village's figurehead, who lorded over decisions of the land. On the other hand, the Guardian was (simply put) a warrior. The reason for this divide was that the monsters in the Region of Stone were abnormally powerful in comparison to other area's (save the Region of Water). Moreover, the region hosted the highest concentration of skull spiders, adding to the strain. As a result, the Guardians were frequently wounded or killed. The division of responsibilities lent greater stability to the Stone Tribe. Golem To survive the harsh battles and fell enemies of the Region, Golem resorted to a measure akin to Leviathan's (the protector of water). To defeat monsters, they became monsters themselves. Fusing their bodies with the armor and life force of Okoto's creatures. With each enemy he defeated, Golem preyed upon its essence. However, this practice was frowned upon by the other protectors, as doing this toed the line between matoran and monster. Ancestors who went too far often degraded into deranged beasts who sought after matoran flesh. These were called Gha'Taj, meaning "possessed one," or "one possessed by evil." It was a lonely road. Golem had put his humanity, on the scales, in exchange for the power to protect. He was hailed a hero in times of strife; however during times of peace he was shunned and feared by his village. Hushed voices calling him Gha'Taj. Through years of duty, Golem slowly retreated from society, eventually appearing only to rend enemies apart, then disappearing back to the desert . He lost all restraint, fusing himself again and again with the essence of monsters. However, before he crossed the line into Gha'Taj; Bulwark, the protector of fire, and Viper, the protector of earth, found him after an arduous search. What occurred that day Golem would never tell, but it was then that Okoto's protectors became the Six. Build As one who once consumed the life essence of his enemies, Golem's physical strength was unrivaled among the Six. This allowed him to effortlessly wield a heavy gun-cleaver, which he needed to defeat the malevolent monsters of the Region of Stone. On his right arm he wore a simple arm-guard with throwing-razors as a side weapon. To compensate for his lack of speed, Golem used a booster that gave him short but concentrated bursts of speed. The booster could only be used for a maximum of 3 seconds at a time, but for 3 seconds he cleanly outstripped the Six. 1.1 Golem with cleaver swung around shoulder 1.2 Side view of above 2 Golem showing off his cleaver 3.1 Golem holding cleaver 3.2 Side view of above 4 About to swing 5 Backview 6 Clearer view of boosters Conclusion Thanks for reading! It was excruciatingly long, but I hope you derived some enjoyment from reading it, as I did while posting it.
