Wow! I'm impressed! I'm loving that custom mask! It turned out really well, along with the rest of the MOC, which looks really fierce. Nice job!

Loving it, really great piece. I've seen that mask before, was that yours or did someone already custom one before? Regardless, really great build. Liking tyre arms...

I want this. Seriously. I'd pay for the instructions, then go find all the parts on Bricklink (except for that mask). Well done. That's a brilliant picture of pre-Pit Karzahni! /gush

Elemental Rahi in Gen2, anyone? A write-up for an initial video for a G2 plot

 

I really wish everyone would stop trying to play join the dots with Gen 1 and Gen 2 though,it seems there's a couple new threads everyday and often they're duplicates of already existing conversations! Or simply parallel them with a slightly new 'twist'! Gen 2 is NEW, it is NOT Gen 1 and it is NOT a continuation. Outside of the characters we already have I personally don't want to see ANY old characters return. I think it will cheapen the whole experience to those of us familiar with the original line...

Good gravy, that's impressive! Very well done, and the mask looks amazing! My only qualm is he looks too clean lol if you were to rub some soot or scuff him up somewhat it'd make him look more creepy and deranged. But other than that, he's perfect lol

I've seen far too few MOCs of this guy, so I immediately loved this when I saw it on Deviantart. It's the best depiction I've seen of him, and your Olisi looks great (though I'm not sure about the Hau). He looks very imposing and solid. Great job!

love the custom mask there! The whole model looks so much like the BIONICLE: World illustration - you've perfectly captured Karzahni. The fact you've added those older technic parts helps with Karz's more ancient feel, too, and the burning chain's studs are a very nice touch.

Yep, this looks awesome. I quite like the work on the custom mask. In general, it really feels like what you've built here could be mutated into the set of the character's later form that we did get. He looks appropriately strong and intimidating.

 

If I had to find one thing to nitpick, the really smooth arms don't quite feel like they fit with the rest of the build (unless one things of them as separate gauntlets and not a part of its biology, so really, tiny nitpick). But there's so much more I like, like the skull shoulder pads, use of good use of the classic torso piece, and even his little toes heh.

That mask looks very detailed and clean, like an actual LEGO piece. The overall build is nice too and complements the mask.  :)

Love the parts usage. The Mata torso, the Fenrakk skulls, the depth you've given him... and that mask is beautifully constructed from existing pieces. Can't believe I overlooked this creation until now!

That is an epic MOC by all means. However, I think a 3D-printed Karzahni mask would have been more fitting. I don't think it's too difficult to commission one of them, and for the purposes of making custom masks I think it beats breaking precious LEGO pieces. In any case, great MOC, once again.

Yes. Just yes. This guy is incredible! I'm sure it's been said a lot already but amazing job on the mask. From my (likely newbish) experience with custom parts they usually turn out very odd and unnatural, but you managed to put it together very well. Great job again and congrats getting onto the news page.


Herro there, person.

How are you?

Incredible work. The design is fantastic, as it's easy to pick out the parts that make up the whole without it feeling complicated or messy to look at. Enough here cannot be said about the mask. Really creative to use Hau's for the intimidating eyes.

You deserve the recognition you're getting for this piece. I haven't actually seen an image of Karzahni in years, so as I clicked through to this topic I was trying to remember his details. For some reason, some gold feels missing, but I think this may have been more from the lighting and shading in the comics.

 

Mask - risky move that paid off. It can easily look too much like "oh he just cut up a mask" than "he made a new mask!" You definitely achieved the later.

 

Pleasure to have seen this MOC.

Great job! Probably my favorite part of the MOC is that the bulk of it (besides the arms) is complex and unique, but still looks like it could be an actual Bionicle set.

Congrats on making the front page with your MOC! B-)

 

As others have said, you've really captured the look of Karzahni before he was mutated by the Pit. The silver and green color scheme flows well together, and his mask looks great too. (Its makes me wish it was a actual mask. :) )


Everyone is one choice away from being the bad guy in another person's story.

Wow, I wish we could've gotten this set instead of the actual one we recieved! This is very well done, and I congratulate you on the custom mask, because it looks almost official. I especially love the forearms you built on this MOC as well...

This really is spot-on. Comparing it to the official picture, the horns aren't curved quite right, and the forearms are the wrong color/missing spikes. Everything else is pretty much perfect though, and I really can't fathom anyone doing a better job. The Knights Kingdom parts on the face are genius, seriously you did an amazing job on the mask.

I completely agree. 3D printing is cheap and easy, with websites like shapeways. But if you were going to cut masks, Why didn't you use kongu and matoro inika's masks, or just paint one hau? Not to be critical, though. Amazing moc that's beyond my ability.

In Bionicle Legends #2 Dark Destiny, Karzahni's Armor called "ebon and gold" so although it an impressive model, he's black and gold, not green and silver.

I need to buy this! :lol: This is one of the best mocs ever! I just love how he looks like he is a bulky warrior wearing big fancy renaissance armor (unlike medieval armor, renaissance armor is much more plated, covering, and flexible, not to mention as fancy as this being's namesake.)!

 

My only qualm is that the ankles seem bare and skinny, looking to be quite unprotected in comparison to the rest of him. As a 'perfectly okay to ignore' side-note, if you want the set to be more accurate, you could paint his 'belt buckle' the same shade of green the rest of him is. :)

Very impressive MOC! I love it! Karzahni looks very great!:) It looks very accurate from the Bionicle World book, even though that he wears green and blue armor, not green and silver. I like the custom mask, too. Gold color would make him look very great, also, because he wears that in a book, Bionicle Legends #2: Dark Destiny.:)


I like Lego, Bionicle, and Hero Factory!:)

wow guys thank you :D i'm flattered to have made front page!

 

when i set out to make this moc i made some guidelines. i wanted no paint to be used,

no ccbs, and a great colour scheme. thats why i used the masks that i used, so i didnt have to paint. nothing looks worse on an moc than two slightly different shades of the same colour. also i had a distinct idea about the phisique, the model itself it hunched and not well... i dont know... muscled? this is compensated by strategically placed armour to make Karzahni look like a very physically imposing figure. the illustration in the bionicle atlas was my main inspiration, as well as some studies of that-one-cactus's artwork (which is where i got inspiration for the cape and horns being part of his head, not mask), so that's why i made him green and black with silver armour.

Love this, not only for the use of older pieces which makes him look like he belongs to the older Bionicle universe, but also for customization! For a MOC of this scale it is definitely necessary to deviate from purism, and I applaud the cutting and gluing for the mask. I do wonder if Karzahni were made to scale with the Toa, however, if whole masks could be used, stitched together with tubing, to form a larger mask...
