<NOT A CONTEST ENTRY>
(image is too big for the page)
Backstory: Long ago, the Great Beings themselves fought a terrible war using colossal bio-engineered engines of destruction. These artificial monsters that were all put to sleep and imprisoned deep underground when peacetime returned. Now, the re-formation of Spherus Magna has awakened these beasts, and the golden fusion being has turned them into an army he intends to use to conquer the planet. To defend themselves, the Matoran and Agori reverse-engineered the giant robots of the Great Beings to create huge warrior machines: the Exo-Nui.
The Exo-Nui called "Champion" was designed for Toa Hewkii and is both rugged and agile, able to scale mountains in pursuit of enemies. It can fight long-range with an energy cannon, or close-up with a mighty claw arm.
Arms and legs articulated, with piston-supported knees and elbows and extra shoulder and hip mobility
Cockpit fits a Bionicle minifigure, and can open (see above left view) or close via a lever on the back. The lever is connected by an axle to the larger gear seen in that view, while the small gear in that view is connected to the cockpit plate. EDIT: Forgot to mention, the hinge for the cockpit plate also has a ball joint which gives the hinge more friction, visible in the center view.
I'd like some feedback on what parts of the creation could be improved (so that I don't make the same mistakes when I enter the GITR contest!)
