...My jaw dropped when I saw this. What an epic face/head. A shame that you can't get the body as detailed, but I'm just stunned by that face. Wow. Really movie-worthy. Such a great use of parts, especially those dino heads!

Yesyesyes.  One of my favorite characters, so well built. Maybe the body and legs could look better, but I think the arms and hands are excellent. And of course the PU on the head is super-accurate and top-notch. How do you think of this stuff? Love how natural the white fur looks.

Nothing could prepare Sybre for the final battle.

 

In November, head down to Snax in the comic forum to see the battle that will determine the fate of Sybre.

Wow! That's amazing! Until you said anything I had no idea you were unsatisfied with the body; to me it looks every bit as great as the face.

There are many, many MOCs that look really good zoomed out far, but when you zoom in, they don't look very good -- not so here! Piece usage is brilliant. Not only is the overall image (highly accurate, at least judging from my awful memory lol -- and) really cool-looking, it was fun to stare at the screen and try to figure out what each pieces was. The dino heads for the eyes were tricky to figure out at first but really impressed me once I realized what they were. Nose/snout design is also especially good. "Mane" (or whatever the right term is) really good too.

 

Body design being much simpler, more traditional Bionicle MOC is an interesting choice. I think it works here. Draws the attention to the brilliance in the face design, and sometimes I think many MOCs have too much custom just for the heck of it (though nothing wrong with that, heh). I like the idea of using what LEGO makes available and then where they don't have something, build up from there, and this seems to do that well. Hand design loses points for lack of poseability, but still clever piece usage, and works as a "statue MOC". Base is forgettable but oh well (what does it matter? It's in the past... okay I couldn't resist...).

 

Great job!

Wow...all I can say is awesome. The head is incredibly detailed and have great ways to incorporate different pieces. I honestly dont care if the body isn't that detailed, the head just makes up for it.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

I have not seen the Lion King in a long time, and don't even remember who Rafiki is, but I still recognized him instantly when I saw the little picture on the news page.  That is something hard to achieve, having a MOC that's so instantly recognizable.

A lot of you guys are BIONICLE fans, many from way back. It's no secret that you are some of the smartest, most loyal, and most dedicated fans out there. You, and you alone, have carried the torch for the line over the last four years. Hopefully, you will feel rewarded for your efforts by 2015 BIONICLE.

 

Regardless, I wanted to take this opportunity to say that I am really proud to be associated with you, and you should be really proud of yourselves"

Holy cow, this looks great. Its head looks exactly like Rafiki's. It's almost like looking at a picture of him! The only thing that would make this even better is if he had his staff, but this is still awesome as is. Great job!

I'm pretty sure he's one of the lions

Just wanna say that this is seriously neat.  The face is the important part, so pulling that off so convincingly is a serious attention-grabber.  Maybe a bit nightmare fuel inducing, however--the whole thing looks like a sinister, deranged robo-mandrill.  Very interesting figure, regardless.
