First topic on new forums. http://www.bzpower.c...tyle_emoticons/default/cool.pngI made this about halfway through the downtime, so it's a bit old, but nobody on BZP's seen it yet, and I like it, so I'll post it.Posted ImageClick for gallery.And HERE'S the gallery for Aeiss alone, with better shots of him. Ignore the Takal cameo (orange/white guy).Comments?

Yeah, just ignore this post, people...But me-jokes aside, I'll say again that although the colours are a little odd, and the bike looks fairly fragile, I like the originality of both. Nice job, Xin.

I can tell you right now, the bike is not fragile in the slightest.

Interesting color choices for Aeiss. Teal and Mata blue. It looks very nice. The bike is quite an ingenuity, very original. Definitely the highlight of these two MOCs. The use of the smooth 2x4 pieces is good also.

I think I already gave you my thoughts on this, but I'm not sure. :P I really like Aeiss, the teal/light blue combo is lovely. However, the feet seem a little odd. They look too... rounded. I dunno, whatever. The bike is awesome, though. I like the tubes and pistons, and all those weapons you used for armor fit together nice and cohesively.

I like the commitment to the teal coloured parts, I never use teal with anything as a toa, because I just don't have enough useful parts in that colour. And the mata blue goes nicely with it too. The bike is very original and I love the use of so many different tool pieces from various years, particularly '03 Tahu Nuvas swords. They fit in really well, and I don't seem them on many MOCs, so awesome job there! Not entirely sure from the pictures, does the front turbine pivot like on a wheeled bike?

Indeed it does. It works exactly like a normal bike, just with horizontal wheels. Thanks for the replies, guys!

Nice pair of MOCs. The pilot is good, with nice colors, altough not so flowy on the shape. The bike is very nice, I really like the idea. The hoover parts could be a bit better (at first i tough they were wheels just turned the wrong way), but overall its vyr good. Keep it up!

The bike is nice and complicated with a elegant colour scheme. The front part looks a bit odd, but not that bad. Bike - 8.5/10Aeiss has a truly beautiful colour scheme. Both weapons are very nice Aeiss - 9/10

Thanks guys. I don't care too much about the flowiness, it's hard enough to use teal to make something half decent, let alone smooth. :P And I don't really see what's wrong with the hover parts... I imagine that's what they'd look like on a real hover bike. What else would you have me do? Thanks again. What is odd about it? I can't improve it if you guys don't tell me what's wrong with it. ;)

I love the cat, but what was that MOC in the background? On topic, I like the teal/medium blue color scheme. The bike is well done. I like it. The Tahu Nuva swords were, I felt, especially well placed.

Awesome! The bike is amazing, and so is Aeiss, but I think he would look better if the axles on the feet weren't sticking out as much.

Thanks guys. I love my cat ^_^And Akuna, I had originally meant to cover up the axles but it was a mix of laziness/not remembering. :P

Huh, I saw this on another site while the forums were down. Anyway, this is a very good MOC. Aeiss himself looks awesome - the color scheme is amazing (TEAL!) and the construction is solid. The hover bike is neat too; I especially like the use of the turbines. :t: :b: :3:

Thanks Balta! And yeah, I've posted him on... at least 3 different sites already, before BZP. I really wanted to use teal as a primary colour, but it was difficult. Forced me to be more creative in areas where I'm usually not (e.g. feet).

Very sleek, very sleek indeed.You've also hit my weakness for motorcycles, and similar vehicles so I'm going to have to give this MOC my approval.

BIONICLE fan since the start. Hate to see the sets go, but I'm excited to see what the future brings.

Here's the review you requested. ^^First of all, I love the design. Sleek, agile, thin - it's a good build. My favorite part of the design was the torso because it is so uniquely built. The claw-foot at the front of it is a good touch and makes a good front plate/torso armor. Also I'd like to add that the shield and hammer-like weapon the Toa is holding. And I really like the bike, because it looks like a more modern and advanced design. I liked how you incorporated both LEGO and Bionicle pieces into Aeiss, by the way.Secondly, I like the colors you chose. It's a decent combination, and if it were in canon terms, I'm guessing it would be a Toa of the Green..? Anyway, I love the teal and blue colors. And I liked the simplistic silver and black combo of the bike, too.I don't see any exact flaws in it, to be honest. I liked the poses and pictures you supplied, though - and, you're cate is cute. =3Anyway, great job on it. Keep up the good work! ^_^

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
 
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
 
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
 
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
 
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
 
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
 
slipped away...
