Hey guys. Got something big to share with you, today. Behold, the wave 2 Matoran sets!
....plus one Ussal crab.
I realize that the image below is too small to be... well, readable, so here's a link to the "real" version. >> http://nickinamerica...toran-511480823
And here's a closer look at each of these, anyway.
So yeah, these would be part of the 2015 winter wave if Bionicle had gone on like this. One can always dream.
With wave 1, I focused on giving the Matoran really diverse builds an' whatnot. These may be a little more basic, but I hope I've managed to convey how different they are in terms of their nature. For example, there's the almost completely mechanical extreme at one end of the spectrum, then a borderline Agori at the other end with a much more organic body... then you've got Susurri, who's somewhere in the middle, a relic of the new generation's... gestation, we'll say. He's almost like an upright walking insect, with all his hard bits layered over his softer bits.
Also, we finally get a look at a typical Po-Matoran's feet. Yes, they have toes. Like, ACTUAL toes, and not just claws like on Susurri's Protector feet.
For those who want a good idea of how Kuori's species is constructed, well, the shell is a Bohrok cranium, the legs are like Lord of Skull Spider's (same feet, just much shorter legs), the claws are Carapar armor, and each eye stalk is the smaller part of an elephant's trunk with a Barraki eye in the lil' nub at the end. These surface-dwelling Ussals come in all colors. Looking back, red probably would've been a more fitting eye color for Kuori, but I didn't want to make her look mean or anything.
....Aaaand I just realized how much nicer this would look with shadows next to the Matoran at the top. Oh well...
Anyhow, that's basically it for today. Nova Orbis will return for real in a coupla' months, after I finish Shadow of The Devilman.
Discuss! Feedback is always appreciated. Also up for commissions, if anyone wants me to draw their Bionicle OCs.
