Yeah, as TIN said, I always thought Uxar was a dragonfly of sorts, but I like the kinda mechanical look of its wings.

 

That aside, what can I say? These are creations beyond words. Congratulations, and I too am looking forward to see you working together again in the future, hopefully a near one!

While these are all awesome MOCs in their own right, I don't think that they have the same sense of unification that's present in the official sets (although that's probably because they were made by different people). Besides that, I can't really find any criticisms! Sure, Uxar is a completely different species, but I'd just chalk it down to creative license. Keep up the good work!

This is phenomenal. I especially appreciate how Melum actually looks like something distinctive now.

Wow. These are amazing. Great job!

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.)

These are incredible, though I think Uxar and Ketar use waaaaay too much system, in fact they are almost entirely system. I especially like the shaping on Akida. Terak looks a tad bit too menacing and I'm not entirely sure what it's supposed to represent. I feel like making him into a mole would have made more sense but it's still a great design. Melum doesn't really do it for me though, I'm kind of getting a hamster vibe from him. Ikir looks great, especially the wings and I love the accompanying display.

The stuff MoCists come up with never ceases to amaze me.

 

I've gotta figure out how to make all those connections work someday.  It'd let me get pieces to fit at weirder angles and help me with some of my own stuff.  It'd be a hassle adapting the techniques to solely constraction pieces, but if it helps me get my stuff to look better...

Where mah Unity gimmick at? Nah, but seriously these are very good. I think that they're really cool, just that one little gripe being the lack of said function, but I think that these were meant to be representative as a posed to them serving their official counterparts purpose.

Oh wow. :bowdown: The system integration really seals the deal for me. Changing Uxar from an insect to a bird is different, but it's still a great MOC. The use of the Skull Scorpio mask is sublime. What is Melum supposed to be? A snow wallaby? :P

Ghidora131, The Invisible Noob, Pohaturon, Turnipmensch, The Hero Nuva Kaita Nui thanks! We really appreciate your comments. =)

We're on it. Hopefully the next one will pierce the heavens, if you know what I mean :D

 

Sure, Uxar is a completely different species, but I'd just chalk it down to creative license.

Well, yeah. That's the point. The Chosen One was given tons of unreasonable beating for making a bird instead of bug. It's just his vision, you know, and it looks really good.

 

These are incredible, though I think Uxar and Ketar use waaaaay too much system, in fact they are almost entirely system.

I never considered using more bionicle and technic pieces when making this one. I can't even say that I separate them from system anymore. I just use the pieces that seem to fit well, so I never question whether I'm using bionicle, technic or system pieces

*i believe that some day i'll use znap and fabuland and this will be glorious... (ಥ_ಥ)*

You need some motivation.

Um, yeah... I left this little unity function though I've never tried it. So in theory, Ketar and Melum are able to unite. But it's just me, Tremah and Chosen decided to omit it for their own reasons.

 

What is Melum supposed to be? A snow wallaby? :P

Idk, lol. We call it "The Hen" :D Edited by Tora

The detail of Terak's face is amazing, and Akida's scales are beautiful. Love these builds!

Absolutely phenomenal. A great collaboration between some skilled MoCers. These are brilliant imaginings of the Elemental Creatures. I love how each have their own unique blend of system and technic/constraction but because all of them at least have some of that blending, they all look unified. Uxar is the wrong species but I like the substitute creature chosen. I particularly love what was done with Melum. Good job to all of you!

Nice work, but that Ketar's stinging tail isn't worth bewaring is a disappointment.

All of them look great but my only minor gripe is Melum. He kind looks like he is too overly complex compared  to the rest, the distinction is good but still a bit too much over the top.

In their own right, every one of these is an amazing MOC. Just absolutely incredible. The parts usage, the shaping, everything. But as recreations of the creatures, I feel they fail somewhat. Ikir, Terak, and Ketar look the part, but as others have mentioned, Uxar is off. I also think that Akida and Melum are off as well. But hey, creative license. And I can't really ding you on anything because I'll never come close to anything like this. :P

Step One: Take MOC display to con.

Step Two: Profit.

 

Bravo here, all y'all! All of the MOCs are able to evoke the original characters, the animals they were based on, and still are able to have originality. Again, bravo!
