joev14 posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsHey guys. I am back with another model. I consider this to be one of my best works. It is my representation of the Marendar, or the Toa Killer as some of you may know, as it appears in The Yesterday Quest. (Link in my signature)An explanation about the storyline behind the model: The Marendar has five optical sensors, one on the front, one on the back, one on each side, and one on top, making it so that it has almost 3 dimensional dome vision. It's only blind spot is a small area right behind it's feet. It's weapons array consists of two primary weapons on it's front limbs, and a power dampener sphere launcher on it's tail based off the same technology as the Krahli (the Vahki Predecessors). The black parts on its body are heavy armor, and the silver parts are solid Protosteel, making it's armor almost impenetrable on the black spots, and completely impenetrable by any mortal means on the silver spots.An explanation about designing and building the model: I always imagined the Marendar as more machine-looking than humanoid; as a massive bipedal tank type thing, with knees that had backwards joints in order to hold up its back-centered body weight. I tried to add some gears inside to make it look more mechanical. I personally love the way the silver and the black blend so well together, and at the same time it looks like a massive robot, rather than a humanoid.Sorry about the pictures not being quite the same size. They all link to larger images if you click on 'em. Front and Back Side and Low View Head Closeup and Internal Mechanics A Toa of Psionics slain at the hands of the Marendar
CaT in Rogue posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsUnit AX-1 Data File Used in the Magna War, these war bots were top of the line tochnolgy, with advanced shielding, intelligence, and weapon power. Their back-mounted shield generators proved more than sufficient enough to withstand a Nova Blast at point-blank range. Their heads alone took nearly two years to design, with the orange spike seen on Unit AX-1's head denoting it's status as General. The weapons systems were Plasma Cannons designed to pump plasma into damaging beams of energy. They were designed to function in any enviroment, and their legs even extended for walking in thick swamps. For the entire photographic view, visit the gallery when released to the public. End of Transmission A few notes about this MOC. The head design really did take almost two years to finalize, though the rest of the body was ready much earlier, in 2010! It was hard to find a head that would go well with the shape. Please excuse the blue pins and red connectors, I don't have enough of those in other colors. Please, stick to constructive crticism only, no complaing about it simply because it's not a giant.I still get way too much of that.
