Rahkshi: The 42 [Complete Customized Set]

Recommended Posts

I don't think any of the socket pieces are painted are they? It's mostly the extremities that are custom, the arms, legs and necks are the only ball-joints there are and they're all dark b-grey I think...

There are a great many painted sockets. Purple (I could never match the Lego purple,) gold, aquamarine, lavender, and pink sockets are all painted. I had the same concerns about them flaking but they've all held up so far - although I'm not exactly re-positioning them all the time.

Ah I see what you mean, I was thinking of the balljoint parts rather than the sockets themselves...

 

jimmybob, can you please respond to your kraata thread or my pm? The pm says you read it days ago but never replied. Not sure if you even checked your kraata topic despite it being linked in your sig! Please go and do it as soon as you read this, and take my money!

This is beautiful. I just have one miscellaneous Rahkshi; Quick Healing (terrifying, huh?). He uses Vorahk's spine and Panrahk's weapons (aren't I creative?). The only other one I'm considering is Electricity, because I have a Kraata and it's the only main-six colored one.

 

Just one thing I noticed; you changed the Rahkshi of Heat Vision's staffhead. I personally would have kept Guurahk's just for consistency with canon. But who am I to complain? You are a true fan.

One question : Are the spines, and the heads painted?

Wow! They all looks fantastic and classic! Nice use of the post-2003 pieces, too! I hope they will be canon as we could post on BS01 because they could be worth it.:)


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

I've always wanted to do this as well! 

I once made the Rahkshi of electricity with some of my parts, but I think yours look better.

 

I was fascinated when I was a younger fan about how many Kraata types their are and the possibilities that they have.   

 

This is one of the reasons why I love the Bionicle story so much.


Seems legit.

Wow, phenomenal work here! I shall now headcanon these as the 'official' appearances of the remaining 35 Rahkshi that never got an official appearance.

These are beautiful.

 

If I could change one thing, I would make the feet of the two-coloured ones match the head and spine rather than the hand joints.

On the original Rakshi sets, the feet, head and spine were a different textured plastic than the cup joints, even though they were the same colours. I would make all the softer plastic parts match each other for Rakshi with two colours.

That'd certainly be interesting, however it is already said on the Wild Kraata Chart (where he got the colors from) that the two colors of a rahkshi are separated by head/spine and feet/hands.  In that sense, his rendition is faithful towards canon.  I definitely do see your point in separating by material, though.

I remember collecting all the Kraata and obsessively categorizing them, knowing that I would never be able to raise an army with them. Say, does your army happen to be for hire? :P

 

I truly appreciate the dedication and passion that went into this. It's a little gap in the visual imagery of BIONICLE that we never got, and you've presented a really good version of this.

Kind of want to try out that "minifig tool for Rahkshi spine" technique myself if I ever make a Silver Rahkshi. I've heard a silver one appeared in the Metru comics, but the only panel I could find on that was this, which I can't tell the colours on:

Comic_Rahkshi_Stalking.png


Some cool Bionicles are the combiners. Example: Toa Jovan

I've built a Krahka with 5 Toa Metru & Toa Norik, adding parts I needed to Norik. It needs 11 blue pieces (the ones that have +&O ends) but there's only 10 in all the Toa Metru sets. Do I have to attach her launcher to her arm? Please PM me if you can help me.

I do not know how I've never seen this before. I think my favorite part is just that I can associate the powers to the Rahkshi better than with just the kraata.

Funny story actually; I'd just put this topic up, and I decided I wanted to re-read my Bionicle comics because I hadn't done that in forever. Then I came to this panel, which I'd completely forgotten about, and went "Oh *bleeep*!" :P I wish I could have reproduced those two spines in detail. Maybe someone with more artistic skill than myself could 3D print those two in the style of the legit Rahkshi spines.

These all look incredible. They all look like official sets, which is really cool IMO. Some of their color schemes do look weird, but that's because of the canon material, so its understandable here. 

 

I have no other complaints about any of these. Great job with making them! B-)

They're spectacular. I'd buy the pink one for sure.

 

Mind tellng me what mark of spray paint you used ? The fire resistance rahkshi's color looks like Kongu's teal, and I would really like to make a 2003 version of the character.

You need to take those and make them canon. Do not threaten violence against other BZPower members. -B6

Something to note is that, no matter how many plot holes or problems I might point out in Bionicle G1, I love G1 above just about any thing else material in this world. I may bash it a lot, but that just shows how much I love it. (I won't go into explaining how that works.)

If you do think they are different, non-original 6 (or even non-Heat Vision, who also appeared in scale in the Metru comics) Rahkshi, which ones are they?

Astonishing work - my first Bionicles were the Rahkshi and it's incredible being able to see that you've recreated all FOURTY TWO O_O!!!

 

Could you by any chance take some photos of how you made the custom spines?

If I remember the books correctly, they specifically mentioned an encounter in the Archives with two Rahkshi. One was Insect Control and the other was either Weather Control or Heat Vision. Not sure if that's the case in the comics.

I do apologize if I offended anyone (I suppose I got carried away, oohing and awing and meant it as a joke), but seriously, you put too much time sna creativity into those for them to not become canon. Those are too perfect not to be accepted.

They do look like they're orange and gold however. Neat!

To reiterate an earlier point, I have to ask people complaining about painting/customizing when it comes to replicating things shown (or in case of the Hagah, likely to have) with pieces or pieces in certain colours that just don't exist and may never unless there's a miraculous reason for LEGO to make that part. What's the closest someone's going to get to making an Olisi or many different Rahkshi without creating, modifying or painting parts? What do we do in that instance?
