Journey To One Makuta "Instructions"

Recommended Posts

LEGO was kind enough to provide us with detailed models of the JTO model so that it should be easy enough to build it now; at some point I might myself go and create step-by-step instructions, but this will more than suffice.

Been prepping to drop the $$ to make him--was just waiting on more formal instructions. We're in luck! :D

 

Presumably still confirmed as a combiner of the models you reported earlier?

Radical. Thanks so much to the Bionicle team for being so responsive to the community and getting these pictures to us asap. And thanks to the designers for making it a reality, too!  :D

Oh my yessss..... it's perfect! It's times like this we can see why Lego hired these people as set designers. It's an inspiring build and I just love it. Gonna be hard acquiring a MoUP though. I guess there is one on shapeways ...

 

Since a mask is just a small piece, commercially available 3D printing might be a solution. I have started a bit with 3D design a half year ago, but quickly stopped once I realized that I won't be able to truly learn it alone so I enlisted on a course on Udemy. It might take some months, but once I complete the course I might get into designing a 3D model of the Mask of Ultimate Power, if we still won't have one by that time, that is  :)

Somebody already did create the mask on shapeways. SirTumbleweed to be exact.

 

Also really think this topic is news worthy for the front page of this site, given how many people wished for an actual makuta set, and this is the closest we will get.

*Squee* Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou

 

 

EDIT: Having built the model, it seems like it uses one more ball joint than the component sets have. Did anyone else have this problem, or did I simply misinterpret the pictures?

What sets is this supposed to be comprised of? I've seen people mention it's suppose to be, but not which sets exactly.

I've mentioned it in a few places, but the sets are, as confirmed by the designers:

 

LOSS

MM vs SG

Ikir

Tahu Uniter

Onua Uniter

Can anyone tell me what pieces are used from Ekimu besides his shield? I would apprecaite not having to tear him apart.

His shoulder joints , friction gears, and portions of the hammer. Edited by MetroidwaveX50

Where can I get the mask? I assume it is 3D printed, and I do have access to a 3D printer, so I would appreciate a link.

Also, despite how great these pictures are I am still a very untalented builder. If anyone who can make him decides to make step-by-step instructions, please let me know.

I don't have a very good camera, but I could probably help if it's just a few parts you need help with. I'd be happy to help.

Perhaps "untalented" wasn't the best word. :P I don't think I could decipher any of the model at all. It just isn't of my skills. So, please don't go out of your way just for me. I was just hoping someone would happen to be doing it anyway.

Weird. I'm the opposite. I'm not very good at original ideas, but I'm fairly skilled at reverse engineering models. It still bothers me that the model uses 15 balljoints when the component sets only have 14, though.

Thanks so much for sharing these Dorek!  You are awesome! Just purchased all of the sets for him, so hopefully I'll be able to build him soon.  Going to hold off for a v2 version of the Mask of Ultimate Power from Shapeways before purchasing one of those though.

Just want to ask: does anyone plan on (or is already) making step-by-step instructions? I just wanted to ask because the pictures aren't enough for me to accurately build him.

This is an absolute lifesaver and is doubtless going to swallow a lot of my money.

That said, I think a parts list would make this even more useful. Could someone who has built this guy already see about compiling one?

I'll get around to it probably.

Currently building it in LDD. Will share when finished!


Actually found this great video. Slow it down to 25% speed with 1080 and its very easy to see. When he mentions being short on shells he's wrong; he forgot LoSS's. you will be one ball joint short but I plan on pulling one from my collection.

Good find!

 

Also, I ​knew there was an extra ball joint. I feel so relived. I'm not crazy after all!

I just found a review video of the JTO Makuta and in it the reviewer states that he contacted LEGO's customer service and was told that instructions for the model will be released in about a week (it has been a week since he posted this video, so any day now).  Edit: Confirmed to be rumor by LEGO employee (one of the designers) over on TTV.

 

 

I personally would still like the instructions for the Overlord version more, but that's probably just me.

First, which one is the overlord? is it the purple one or the one with the throne? I seen lots of people mention it as their favorite.

 

Second, *squeeeeeeeee*

Here is the Overlord Makuta model.  Interestingly he was the only model to have a trans. orange head.  

Sorry for the huge photo.

Kinda off topic I know, but would the dorek be able to get some more pictures of that overlord makuta? Like how the pictures for this makuta were done? Completely understandable if not, just figured it's worth a shot to ask.

I'll upload the other ones I have into a gallery at some point. There's no x-ray shots, though, it's just the final model.

Thank you so much sir, I really appreciate it.  If there is some side and back shots, I can probably figure it out (if I do, I will be sure to share with the rest of the community).

Any shots of the mask maker? Pretty sure I got him figured out, but it never hurts to check.

Much appreciated, as I haven't quite mastered CCBS yet. Looking forward to them!

 

Edit like 2 minutes later: just saw them on the Flickr stream, thank you, kind sir.

The Makuta Challenge Inspirational Models

These photos are so helpful, thank you so much sir.

 

 

Edit: 2 hours later...

I am building what I can in LDD, I have the legs almost completely figured out as well as the staff, axe, arms, wings, and some of the back torso.  I was going to make a topic where I would share the LDD file as I made progress but the LEGO gallery isn't letting me upload it.  Again, thank you so much Dorek.

I hope that Lego will send instructions, the images on Flick doesn't work well for me. I'm too bad building with images....

 

Also, I know this isn't the board to do this but I'm desperately looking for any instructions for the Melting Makuta, and I found that he was created for a member of this forum, if someone could help me please.

Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in.

 

I can't figure out MM Makuta's shoulders. I think it has a setup similar to Korgot, but I can't figure out anything else. Anyone got any ideas?

There isn't a really good look at how the torso is built, so unless someone who personally saw it can give any incite, we can only guess.
