I've finally revamped possibly one of the most iconic traitors in the canonical BIONICLE universe: Metus."I can always pick a winner. Now throw down your weapon and your shield. That's not a joke." The body of this MOC is probably the highlight. As it was the most complicated aspect of the MOC. I gave him a new weapon because his original didn't really look like an ice axe, it was more like a katana. I basically de-limbed Nuju Metru (not the member) and threw them onto the complicated body. The chest armor was the hardest part of the MOC to build and make work. I had tried different designs previously, but, they didn't mesh correctly with the body pieces. More pictures will come soon! EDIT: Picture had the same name as a newer one :( . Will have to upload again.As always, I am open to any C&C to be offered!

Nice revamp. I like the body and how you put a Krana there but I don't get the white Fenrakk teeth sticking out.

Well, I like the Krana on the body, but the Bohrok eye pieces just make his chest way too big. Other wise, he seems a bit too tall.

I used to have a banner here.

 

But that RPG is dead.

 

What now?

I tried to add more armor, you know, because on Bara Magna it's fight or flight.

I do agree that it looks a little too big. When he's got his knees bent, like the actual set, he's actually pretty close to the correct size. I was aiming for flexibility on the limbs

The body's nice, you're right. The shoulders are much too wide and the limbs are much too long, though. XD

Neat! I like the body, the arms are good, but something bothers me about the legs and feet. They seem too big, but it might just be the angle.

[font="Palatino;"]The body stood out to me as most definitely Agori; sometimes smaller custom builds end up looking more like Toa than Matoran or Agori. I'd try to make the shoulders thinner, however - not that they're a bad thickness, but they appear to jut out away from the body. While you're at it, you may want to rethink the Bohrok eye armor idea. They could definitely work there, but the angle they're at makes them distracting.I like the lower torso. Krana are neglected, and they can give such wonderful textures. It looks fairly organic to me, which is also a nice touch.[/font]

This MoC looks pretty good, but the black bars and white fins sticking out of his chest are off-putting, making it look like Metus is leaning back at an unnatural angle.
