(Above link now has images from both batches. See topic for Batch 2 here.)
Micro-Bionicle is a project where I take as much as I can from Bionicle, and make it in Minifig scale, or similar scales, as System MOCs in LEGO Digital Designer (Extended mode). Note: I often use "micro" as a technical scale term, and this isn't that, but the name is a pun on microbiotic, and they're so tiny compared to normal Bionicle MOCs, so yeah. I usually use Nano, Micro, Mini, and Macro as demonstrated in this Scalefig image. The Rahi here are all at Mini scale, while the Kini-Nui is at Nano scale. Eventually I plan to make some of the larger Rahi or other things at actual Micro scale.
Every single Rahi here has a "mask" (used a beetle piece, the only one that really looks good-ish as a mask at this scale), even ones like Visorak and Keetongu that canonically didn't wear masks (as far as we know), although you can't see them all at the angles of these images. There's at least one Rahi from every year up through 2008, and I tried to include the most important ones and representatives of major locations. The large-font names directly beneath each image are links to the corresponding Biosector01 page.
Protodax without Zamor, with theoretical hover rotors since protodites fly
(This MOC is based on a sketch I've prepared for my retelling.)
Hahnah, with Cordak Launcher
Nivawk (a given name; species name unknown)
Energy Hound (Spinax)
Manutri, with Cordak Launchers
Keetongu (given name; species name unknown), with weapons
Gate Guardian (I decided to make all three of the Rahi that travel with the Visorak swarms, starting with this one)
Gate Guardian cloaked and projecting illusion of smaller form
Venom Flyer, with theoretical hover rotors
(it flies somehow, apparently doesn't have a flight power, but wings look more like extra fangs for injecting venom, plus IMO later Rahi need more 2001-ish large-scale machinery)
Colony Drone (firing Rhotuka)
Ussal, with mining saws
Basic Collection, with labels, shown with a Toa (Tahu Mata) and Matoran approximation for scale
Full Collection (some more colors, infected and maskless versions, etc.)
Basic Collection (only one of most types)
Individual Species Collections:
Colony Drone | Energy Hound | Gate Guardian | Gukko | Hahnah | Hydruka | Keetongu | Klakk | Lava Ape | Lohrak | Manas | Manutri | Nivawk | Nui-Jaga | Nui-Rama | Protodax | Tarakava | Ussal | Venom Flyer | Visorak (& Kahgarak) | Waikiru
Batch TWO is up!
