(Sorry for the foggy pictures; the contrast was a bit of an issue. And if you saw this before I posted that note below, the topic was unfinished. Now it's finished!)

Of all the weapons used in the Barraki's conquest, none were as feared or as powerful as Kalmah's mighty Exo machine. (Features piston-supported shoulders and is stable enough to stand on one leg on a hard surface.)

The Exo's main weapon was a flamethrower staff that could torch at close distance, burn down defenses or simply sweep away enemies with brute force.

(This is the hand design I came up with for the Exo, and I like it. The staff clips to the wrist, but the hand's grip is actually necessary to keep the staff from sliding around.)

For long-ranged attack, the Exo was equipped with an explosive plasma launcher. (It's a Zamor variant I designed, and it works reverse to the standard. Rather than pushing a trigger forwards, you push the launcher backwards with the help of the rubber bands to fire it. The axle-acceptor pins provide a good thumbgrip against the arms of the Zamor launcher. The sphere goes into the launcher easily and doesn't fall out at any angle thanks to the angle piece.)

Kalmah never went anywhere without his fabled swords, so he insisted on having storage for them built into the inside of the cockpit of his Exo. (Visorak not included!)

(Cockpit open, you can see Kalmah's swords behind him.)

Kalmah photobombs a picture of the empty cockpit of his own Exo! (Not really, he actually needed to be in the shot so the value balance didn't get messed up.)

("Deactivated mode;" the hook of the staff fits nicely into the lowered shoulder armor.)

 

Thanks for the patience, hope you like it!

Your overall MOC design looks stunning, especially the legs and the launcher-which is my personal favorite because your use of Toa Inikia chest armor. Though, I would suggest giving a brief backstory on the mech's association with Kalmah. At first glance I didn't see what it had to do with the Barraki warlord before I did some thinking. Other than that, it's a really good MOC and you should be proud of yourself for building this masterpiece.

Thank you for the explanation. Now that it has a description, I can really see the elements of the 2007 BIONICLE Playsets in its design. Once again, great work on the mech!

We all knew Kalmah would eventually invent something as awesome as this.

Fantastic concept, using the Bionicle minifigures in the same way as Invasion from Below. Yet the pieces used make it still recognisably Bionicle. A great MOC! Now I'm tempted to get more of the minifigures on Bricklink  :D
