  1. the torso is made from two Tower of Toa upscaled Kiril
  2. thanks. There's a weird quality to the phot that makes it look smaller than it really is. I wasn't happy about it at first but I've come around to it. It makes the MOC more interesting when you finally grasp the scale
  3. Strong, stalwart, and as old as the mountains themselves...
  4. I'm not clever enough for it to have been intentional but I'm also glad it worked out that way lol
  5. Molotov made with a napalm embrace
  6. Tamer of mighty creatures! Pouks hunts only the largest and most dangerous Rahi! Using his Rhotuka bolo spinner, he entangles them in bonds of energy to bring them down. Fearless, there is no beast Pouks will not pursue and tame. More photos Not a very exciting MOC. but it was a fun warmup to break out of a dry spell
  7. He strikes from the shadows! The six Toa Metru returned to the city of Metru Nui, intending to save the sleeping Matoran and bring them to their new home. Ambushed by Visorak spiders, the Toa Metru are mutated into Hordika ... half Toa, half beast! Can they overcome their new enemies and their own bestial natures in time to rescue the Matoran? Toa Hordika Whenua has seen the Archives shattered and beasts of every kind released on Metru Nui. Now he must fight to save the Rahi from extinction. His tools can summon beasts from far underground, or charge up his Rhotuka earth spinner. More photos
  8. King of the Roller Rink
  9. More photos Retro Booster Stoker Antique Princess Re: Rotto Brimstone Warden Zkarab Forgemaster Gorraga
  10. Yeah, that's Galidor. I'm a big fan of using Galidor pieces when I can. The violet Galidor limbs and technic pieces from Jango Fett were a big inspiration for the MOC. As far as foot-less designs go, I mostly care about how shapes/the overall silhouette of a MOC and how appealing it is. I like simplifying the shapes when I can and using simple lines to lead into complex shapes so keeping both of these footless benefitted them. Fogback Siren has a lot of complex shapes in the thighs so simple shins were appropriate and Otomo's upper half is more complex, so the entire bottom half helps guide your eye up to it. Otomo's legs probably could've been more interesting from a technical perspective but i had to keep my part library and the color palette in mind so i settled for what you see.
  11. I think using the original blades helps the most lol
  12. Tahu Nuva Onua Nuva Pohatu Nuva Lewa Nuva Gali Nuva Kopaka Nuva
  13. If I'm thinking of the same card game as you then yes I got a blue kaukau in a secondhand quest for the masks pack.
  14. This MOC was largely inspired by Buttloaf's Toa Whenua and these wonderful Toa Mata illustrations by Elzas first half second half Initially this was going to be a more standard Toa MOC but the focus shifted pretty quickly. I see this as something closer to my Nidhiki than my Toa Nuva where I focused less on aggressively pushing boundaries and more on refining this aesthetic/build style I’ve been working with. I'm very satisfied with how this MOC turned out. It may be one of my best works yet (in this particular style anyways) if I may say so.
  15. I think you will find your place is now, and forevermore, with the Dark Hunters. For who else would have you...? Built for a a Dark hunter collaborative project. You can see all the MOCs that were built for it here.
  16. Yep. those are from Ooni. Wasn't cheap getting three in dk red lol
  17. This is a MOC that I've been working on since October 2020, but the character dates back to January 2020. I was having a conversation with a friend about the villain in F-Zero GX (named Lord Deathborn) and he misremembered the name as Lord Overdeath. I decided I had to build Lord Overdeath immediately. I compiled a list of ideas and reference pics and asked my friend Neal D Anderson (who did the artwork for BioCup 2020) to whip up a sketch of the character (link below) Mood board and reference pic My goal was to create a character that a 12 year old would think is the most amazing thing they've ever seen but an adult would only roll their eyes at. Everyone involved in the creation of the MOC had the time of their life with this character and I hope that shows. I'm very satisfied with the results and I'm really excited to show off what may be my best work to date. More photos
  18. Tahu, spirit of fire, is the oldest of the Toa, having been created when the planet was forming. This hotheaded Toa makes his home in the fiery bowels of the Mangai Volcano, using his incredible balance to surf on lava flows. With his fire sword, Tahu keeps the lava moving towards the ocean, much to the annoyance of his rival, Gali. Tahu is the fiercest of the six Toa, and is most feared by Mata Nui's inhabitants. The Tohunga have the greatest respect for his powers, knowing the incredible power of fire. They don't see him as a destructive spirit, however. He's revered as a guardian, the provider of fire by which they warm themselves at night and keep the dangers of the darkness away. More Photos My first Bionicle set was Nuhvok Kal, as such, my introduction to the Toa was the often-mocked Toa Nuva. For me this image is iconic Bionicle. The Nuva are often talked about as flawed versions of their original counterparts and yet we rarely see remakes of them. I hope to do the rest of the Nuva as the year goes on. Happy 20th anniversary Bionicle!
  19. I love this MOC. One of my favorites of the year.
