Built for a contest on another Bionicle fansite where the challenge is to create a feasible Bionicle set using mainly System elements. Wanted to do a few entries but unfotunately ran out of time.

Also, I know the Photoshopping isn't great, but given my newbish skills and time constraints I'm really happy happy with how it turned out. Let me know your thoughts!

It's everything I never knew I wanted. But now I do. 

 

Do you think you could post instructions? This is seriously amazing, and I want to make my own!

not really a fan of that nokama but the gali nails the weird lanky mata aesthetic, and of course that tarakava is adorable

That temple door feature is nice. I also love the miniature tarkava who's just great.

 

It's a good setpiece.

This right here is absolutely fantastical. I'd buy this thing in a heartbeat were it an actual product. Now I'd love to see you create a similar thing for all six elements (do stone first!).

 

Massive props mate, superb MOC.

This is a great moc, especially the little tarakava. I also love the use of the Bohrok head as the door of the temple.

Great job! I applaud you! I oftentimes wish they actually sold mini versions of the buildable figures just to enjoy some of the Mata Nui landscapes and such.. oh well wishful thinking. Again well done!

I think this is really cool. I'm interested in the Tarakava build, specifically how to build it! The entire model is fairly reminiscent of the system sets of 2001, and very much reminds me of the Adventurers Desert sets.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments!

Do you think you could post instructions? This is seriously amazing, and I want to make my own!


I'm thinking about building a digital copy in LDD or Stud.io and sharing the file in the near future - but in the meantime, here's a quick breakdown of the Tarakava's build.
 

not really a fan of that nokama but the gali nails the weird lanky mata aesthetic, and of course that tarakava is adorable


Thanks Chro. It's weird; some people think Gali sucks, some people think Nokama sucks. For what it's worth, Nokama was kind of an afterthought (as was the Tarakava) and I'd like to redesign her so she matches the scale/style of Gali more closely.
 

This right here is absolutely fantastical. I'd buy this thing in a heartbeat were it an actual product. Now I'd love to see you create a similar thing for all six elements (do stone first!).


That's actually not a bad idea - I'm not sure if I could pull it off, though. We'll see!

I've posted a breakdown of the Tarakava build - there's a link above. I'd love to see someone build a Sand Tarakava using my design. It's interesting that it reminds you of the Adventurers sets - I vaguely remember seeing them in catalogs as a kid. I think the Atlantis theme might have been a closer influence though!

I've never been the biggest fan of system, (which is probably why I turned to Bionicle in the first place,) but this is seriously awesome. It's an awesome hybrid of the two. Nice work!

That System Tarakava is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.  And I love the Jayko visor for Nokama's mask.  Gali looks pretty solid too.  She still looks Bionicle-y, especially for a minifig.

The main system bulk certainly looks like it could come from an actual set, albeit a rather plain one.  I'm not so sure about the Tarakava, although its construction is quite inventive.

I'd actually have something of substance to say here, but I'm too lazy to think of anything.  >_< Er, have some BZPRPG profiles, I guess?

 

I used to help Dominus Temporis with writing MLWTB back in the day, even if I was really terrible at it.  If anyone's in contact with him, could ya help me get in touch?   :)

Amazing! They really missed out on an amazing opportunity by not releasing more than what we got in 2005-07!

Maybe a new Bionicle line would be more successful with a concept like that!
