Aquatic Guardian (21/293)

  1. Bricks for the decay side? What sort of pieces would you consider to fit that bill? Just curious, not planning on changing anything, I'm simply a bit puzzled at the idea.
  2. I tried to make it feel Ice Planet related as much as possible with the coloring, though I should get some replacements for the yellowed pieces.
  3. It's Matoro's colors (Inika and Mahri both had silver and white with blue) I don't see how they're "dull".
  4. http://orig10.deviantart.net/0ceb/f/2017/114/6/b/qyice___ice_planet_mixel_by_mate397-db703d1.jpg So this little fella didn't exactly turn out as planned, but still a cute little fella regardless. http://mate397.deviantart.com/art/Qyice-front-676895792 http://mate397.deviantart.com/art/Qyice-side-676895959
  5. http://orig07.deviantart.net/d28f/f/2017/114/f/d/matoro_the_spirit_touched_by_mate397-db6zwch.jpg *Matoro came from a far away island, according to him his village used to part take in the annual Hammer Flush tournaments back in the day, and after hearing the defeat of Makuta and his minions he was sent. His appearance at first sight caused unrest among people of Okoto. His skeletal arm and green glow unwantingly reminded us of Kulta and his fellow skeletal friends. Though he assured us he has never heard of Kulta, his story to explain the arm didn't make us feel any better. Matoro is something that on his island call a 'spirit touched' able to see both the world of the living and the dead. He can talk to those who has long passed away, even able to step out of his body to traverse the spirit realm but such ability comes at a price. The more he uses it the more his body decays and in the end forever will he be part of the world of the dead.* Well, this one has been on hiatus for far too long, not to mention it was supposed to have ribs on the decaying side, but that didn't work out in the end, same with the chest, it was supposed to be with the hockey chest piece but that just didn't work out with the CCBS torso shell. All in all I'm very satisfied with the out come, the torso's build got pretty good in my opinion, so many small parts merged into one big component. This MOC is mostly made out of left overs from the Makuta combiner and the parts of the BZP raffle Jango Fett I won way back (along with another Hero Pack) among other things.

  6. At least I can slowly build my own Imperial Army, long live the Empire!
  7. Skeez got the short end of the stick as I'm very low on Mixel related pieces, fella most likely will get some tweaks at some point.
  8. Burlzz So, this little guy has been around for a while, and it was time I posted the pictures about him and his friends. He is a barrel of alcohol as anyone can tell and a very cheerful one too. He just loves to share a drink with others. http://orig07.deviantart.net/205e/f/2017/038/7/3/burlzz_by_mate397-day9eo2.jpg http://orig14.deviantart.net/1325/f/2017/038/4/1/burlzz___side_by_mate397-day9f32.jpg http://orig11.deviantart.net/e679/f/2017/038/3/8/drinking_budies_by_mate397-day9f3x.jpg Digzie An eager digger and always ready to work. http://orig03.deviantart.net/aea7/f/2017/038/a/8/digzie_by_mate397-day9hbg.jpg http://orig07.deviantart.net/09cb/f/2017/038/a/a/digzie___back_by_mate397-day9hfd.jpg http://orig01.deviantart.net/7f2a/f/2017/038/c/a/building_partners_by_mate397-day9hhk.jpg Skeez This fella is Ice Planet based and will have a buddy soon, but for that I still need some pieces. http://orig05.deviantart.net/55bf/f/2017/038/4/3/skeez_by_mate397-day9ing.jpg http://orig02.deviantart.net/1bfc/f/2017/038/d/0/skeez___back_by_mate397-day9ips.jpg http://orig08.deviantart.net/31b1/f/2017/038/6/8/mixel_trio_by_mate397-day9is3.jpg http://orig04.deviantart.net/9651/f/2017/038/7/3/a_big_mix_by_mate397-day9jj1.jpg
  9. Neat, I only found it in a darker shade of gold
  10. You do know SW and Friends sets did co-exist with G1 sets back in the day right? Even Marvel sets if you really think about it, with those movie studio sets and G1 was still their flagship for some years, because they put effort into it. Whatever process was behind G2 clearly had something wrong, there were so many great stuff left on the floor cut out, and instead of backing Bionicle and treating it with the respect it should have gotten, since it pulled Lego out of the gutter back in 2001, they just tried to mimic 2001 watering it down heavily and not advertising it properly, to me that feels like they were not too eager to do this from the start. A reboot that could have been a glorious return of the phoenix that is Bionicle, rising from the ashes was nothing more than a cardboard cut out with some confetti in the end. Bionicle didn't need to fail for any of those things to happen. So I don't see why you'd think Lego would be any less disappointed with its failure than the fans are. From the start Bionicle was given a shoe string budget (and most was probably blown on those gold masks) to work with and that showed from the quality of the web animations while Nexo Knights and Ninjago started off with their own TV series from the get go, and the Netflix "series", Journey to One, wasn't anything to write home about, it was heavily rushed riddled with errors. Not to mention the terrible business decision of not even trying to advertise it like the other lines but instead "leave it up to the older fans" as they put it to market it for kids.
  11. It's almost like Lego wanted Bionicle to fail this year... Netflix series was below average and the line was pulled a year early, Nexo Knights is probably going to start season 3 soon, Elves on Netflix soon, Ninjago a movie and a season soon. Not gonna lie, I'm a bit salty.
  12. I didn't make the print, so I can't really do much about it, but it's still better than nothing.
  13. You could always try Modalt? True, at some point I'll ask him about it.

  15. http://orig15.deviantart.net/32c5/f/2016/274/6/5/turaga_lhikan_by_mate397-dajil91.jpg I've been wanting to build a Turaga Lhikan for a while now, and finally got around putting it together. No idea what's with the focus on this, might have made the camera move, gonna retake this shot when back at home.
