Volta Artist Creates Amazing LEGO Bionicle 3D Fight Scene

Recommended Posts

The official LEGO Bionicle Facebook page has shared a 55-second video showing us the Toa as we've never seen them before! This video was created by an artist at The Journey to One animation studio Volta using that show's character models, but in a realistic and highly reflective style instead of the show's comic-like outlines and matte textures. In the video, the camera flies around a scene of the Toa, frozen in time as they do battle with the evil Skull Spiders. Follow the link above to check it out!

While it looks nice, it's literally a rip off version of the Halo 3 trailer 

 

Is slowly panning over static action scenes really enough to qualify it as a ripoff? I'm fairly certain the Halo 3 trailer is not the pioneer of the technique.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

You and I we begin forever now

You and I we're here together now

First thing it reminded me of was the end credits sequence of Age of Ultron. Although I haven't been following the new Bionicle stuff all that much, that is absolutely gorgeous work!

I don't care what it reminds you of. That teaser was freaking lit! I'm also really pleased to see it because it shows the skill Volta has under their belt and also the potential they have in making future Bionicle media. *Praying and hoping for a new Toa Mahri mini-movie like commercial!

That looks amazing. I, too, got an Avengers vibe from it. I would love to see more Bionicle videos with this kind of animation in the future.

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

Now THIS shows what Volta can do! I hated Journey to One and didn't even think the animation was spectacular but I'm glad they're showing off their talents with this. It wasn't really that much of animation I guess but really impressive nonetheless.

Journey to One would have looked so much better in this style.

I feel that same way, also. The video reminds me of that end credits sequence of Age of Ultron. I love the style in there. It looks so dark as the Toa are frozen in time like statues. I have a feeling that Lego is planning to turn the Toa into its own Avengers. I like it! I wish Volta could have done that for better. Perhaps for the summer episodes.:D


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

Those are models?  Heck, I'd buy those more than the actual sets!

 

They're not actual physical models, if that was the impression you were getting. Just really good 3D renders.

We've had plenty of BIONICLE media "in this style", "this style" being photorealistic 3D.  This just looks way better than any of those because it's panning over a frozen scene, which lets us see all sorts of details and get a better sense of depth.

 

Definitely a cool bonus.  Thanks to the Volta people who decided to do it.

Well then.  Congratulations on fooling me.

 

(seriously though, somebody make figures that look like that)

Yeah I know, it looks amazing.

It does look like that, just better.
