The Rahaga's Mission
HeavyLobster posted a topic in Bionicle Storyline & TheoriesI posted this on the TTV Message Boards. Thought the folks here would find this interesting. I am a relatively new fan lore-wise, so I’ve been reading the books for the first time. Some of my favorite characters are the Rahaga. Something about them that I don’t see many people talk about is the significance of their mission after they steal the Mask of Light. Makuta’s original job was to create and look after the rahi of the universe, but he abandoned that in order to pursue more tyrannical goals. In doing so he cast his body guards, the Toa Hagah, aside, probably thinking that they were not worth much. On top of that, he relied heavily on the Visorak for his army. The Visorak are Rahi, but I get the impression that they are an aggressive and invasive species. So Makuta is favoring a single rahi species at the expense of every other, all in the name of conquest. The Rahaga saw the wrath of the Visorak first hand, so they know what kind of damage they can do. What I love is that the Rahaga decide that if Makuta is going to abandon his duty as protector of the rahi, they’ll do his job and they’ll do it better! The Rahaga then proceed to document every single rahi in existence and rescue a huge number of them! TLDR: The Rahaga decided that if their old boss Terry was going to be a bad zookeeper, then they would spite him by becoming the best darn zookeepers that ever existed!! What do you guys think?

Rigel was just a fun little MOC I made a while back that I just really like the design of. After many versions this is my favorite form.

A Message from the Rahaga
Trijhak posted a blog entry in Unspoken WordsDo you have a spinny thing growing out of your back? Does that spinny thing launch spinners of energy? Is your right hand fused to a weapon? Have you been tied up in a cocoon by giant spiders recently? Might you fall to your death if you're not careful? If the answer to all of the above is yes, then you just might be a Hordika! The beast within us all, except those who aren't Hordika. If you fear succumbing to the beast within your Hordika-self, please call the Rahaga helpline today. The Rahaga will be by shortly to help you locate the legendary Rahi, Keetongu. We don't actually know where s/he/it has gone, Keetongu is not where Keetongu was originally found. Our current estimate is on an mythical island called 'Okoto', waiting to be combined because: Kopaka Ekimu Epolim Tahu Onua Nilkuu Gali Umarak See? 100% undeniable proof that Keetongu is hiding as eight different people. They just need to be combined for Keetongu to be Keetongu again.
The S.S. Junkheap
McNugget posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsI recently made Rahaga Revamps, Though this time I Slightly Altered the design, and Made Norik https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLSDlid3hFazNHcGM/edit And then I thought "How did they get around Metru Nui all the Time?". Well here is the Answer. Presenting the S.S. Junkheap. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLMHlBUnBEYjZCUk0/edit Here is the Rahaga Riding it. NOTE: The rahaga staff is attached to the back there because when the Landing gear is lifted, the Ship is unstable. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLekR1NHpsT1h0YkU/edit Another Angle https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLYmdKY0YtZkRiVVU/edit Once again, another angle, but with some landing gear out. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLN19OYm9jVkpRdzQ/edit Yet another angle. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLZnE3NFBuTmdwekk/edit A Close up of the Central part of the Ship. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLaHdHamRmV2JNUDA/edit And yet another angle. And yes I did base it a little off of those things in Star Wars. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLV3ZmbEs4NEVzVEU/edit Comments, and Brownies are welcome. Criticism is a little less welcome, but still Welcome! And for your time, here's a Walrus! https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLVFZucmpiTjZyR2s/edit
Gaaki and Pouks Revamps!
McNugget posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsAs you Obviously Saw in the Title, Today, I revamped Rahaga, Specifically, Gaaki and Pouks. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLeTN3Nzc5ZXg2VVE/edit you can very clearly See the Eye Colors. It was not at all intentional that Gaaki Has Yellow just like Gali, and Pouks has Trans-Neon-Orange just like Pohatu. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLajNTcUJVNkNzNDA/edit Here is An image that may give you a little more of a Feel for the Assembly. I am aware it is a bit Fuzzy https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLRU1mSlUxQmJiWHc/edit I Built Pouks First, it started off with me messing around with the Helicopter Rotors, and Stacked Pieces together until it took Shape, and I still had Pieces for Gaaki, so I thought, if I can do it, Why not? And The Helicoptor Rotors were because They Always Seemed to Be used more like a Helicopter in the movie. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLN3lfajRqZHBRMmM/edit "Look Sister! What is That?" https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5EdRvSKnOeLcUdUUm5TMXVSNGc/edit "Inclement Weather it Appears, Pouks." Comments and Constructive Criticism is Appreciated. And I would Have done them all... If it weren't for me not Having 24 more Hordika Necks to work with, Thats Right, each one took 6 Hordika Necks... 6!
Kualsi (short film)
Jam Pot Studios posted a topic in Fan Created MediaAfter a couple of days of trial and error, I have a new and unexpected short to share with you! Kualsi All work and no play makes Iruini a bored, lackadaisical Toa Hagah. Everyone needs to blow off a little steam now and then. (Click for video) I'm sure by now most of you will have seen Metru Nui Legacy's amazing short film Kikanalo (and if you haven't, go watch it now). After watching that and talking to him about his methods, I decided to have a go myself at constructing a set entirely in 3D space. That quickly evolved from a few tests into a whole video, and so now we have a short and pointless video of Iruini making himself look like an idiot. It's not as polished as MNL's work, but I think it's a good start, and I hope you enjoy it. Sorry for the dodgy thumbnail - it's Christmas Eve, and I won't have much time to acces photoshop today. I still have plans to carry on with Nuva, despite the hiatus since the last episode, but there are some other projects that take priority at the moment. One of them is another BIONICLE short film following Zaria, called Forged in Iron (if anyone has any suggestions for what weapon he might carry, now would be the time) and I hope to use techniques I learned making this short to make that the best it can be. Of course, uni life will no doubt get in the way as it has done for the past few months, so I'm taking every film one at a time. Once again, I hope you like this little skit, and if you do then please share it around, and subscribe to my YouTube channel! I'm hoping to hit 1000 subscribers in 2015 (it'll only have taken 7 years). Thanks, -Jam Pot
On the Rebuilding
X-Ray posted a topic in Bionicle Storyline & TheoriesBS01 states on their page on the Rebuilding that the Turaga showed the Matoran of Mata Nui how to rebuild themselves after the defeat of the Bohrok-Kal, with knowledge given to them by the Rahaga. My question is, why on Earth didn't the Turaga show them how to do this earlier in the 1,000 years they spend on the island of Mata Nui? I'm pretty sure it would have helped them a lot. X-Ray

My Small MOCs!
Click posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsOkay, it's been a little while since I was supposed to post this, but I've been working on something, and it should be explained in due time. Anyways, as explained in my Nui Rama Revamp and Large MOCs topics (both should still be barely open, and they need some love!), I have been needing to clean off my shelves to make room for a new bunch of MOCs I'll post once I get some pieces (see my sig if you want to help). And now, I'll just stop this shameless self advertising and talking, and get to what you wanted to see in this topic, the MOCs! Just stick with me, I've got a few.GarClick it, it's a link. This guy is what took me so long. Now, it doesn't look like it, but he took me about 7-8 hours of work (that I should have finished my summer homework in ). I'll just explain by saying that mask was a Photoshop job, and not painted, and it took me forever to get it right. The mask still looks a little more like gunmetal than I would like, but I'm done editing it. Somehow, I also came up with silver, gunmetal, and bronze while working on it too, so it took forever, but was well worth it.Gar is a (canon) Onu-Matoran of Mahri-Nui who took part in Defilak's exploration of the deep and the encounter with Pridak. Basically, I just got the set of Dekar, and noticed that we never got a small set for '07 in black or white, and I realized that I really liked the look of a black Great Komau. So, just a quick idea of what I think Gar would look like.VeriusBackpack function: 1, 2, 3, 4Weapons: Cordak Pistol, Survival Dual Blade, and Grapple GunGalleryThis guy was a part of my entry in the SSC #8 I think, in my story called Shadow Play. If you look at the banner I made for it, you can see that I made a MOC for Commander Kira of the R.A.M.A. squadron, so I also decided to make another main character, Verius, the Jungle Agori.This guy uses my outdated Matoran build that's just quick and simple I have to say I'm extremely proud of his backpack function and weapons. His backpack, at the spin of a gear, flips off of his back and turns around to reveal a small Rhotuka Spinner with the ability to create energy webs. His usual list of weapons includes the standard Cordak Pistol, a smaller version of the Cordak Blaster (of which I am very proud ), The Survival Dual Blade (I just came up with that name, but I found out how cool those two pieces look together!), or his Grapple Gun, (originally intended for minifig use).Verius is very brave, even though he just got out of the R.A.M.A. academy. He is ready to do anything required in the line of duty, and risk anything to get the job done. He carries the latest in R.A.M.A. gear and has been trained how to use it under the command of the greatest Commander known to R.A.M.A., Commander Kira.Rahaga IruiniPoseAlternate Movie BuildAfter watching Web of Shadows in a burst of nostalgia, I noticed that the sides of the Rahaga have that kind of L-shaped piece similar to the '01 Turaga (although watching closer, a body type like the Va would have fit better, look closely at their back), so I decided to try it out. I tried to make the entire thing compatable with the pieces available at the time as well, and I think it turned out very nice.The staff was based off my old mini Kurahk, by using those mini weapons from the playsets as the tips, and lightsaber width bars for the staff looks much better.I've also included an alternate movie version I was considering with a propellor back, and the original staff piece.Vahki StarsSideSpiderThis uses and idea I've had for a long time. Ever since I saw those Avtoran legs on Solek, I just thought "mini Vahki." Unfortunately, my idea consisted of using the legs upside down, and using a ball joint there would have limited the posability (unless I used two, but my ball joints are otherwise occupied right now ). Eventually, I figured out that strange little attachment I think I've used before by putting a Metrutoran limb on the Mata foot, and holding it in with a 2 length peg. The rest of it was mostly just improving around that, but I kind of like the head.And last one, bear with me!Nuhvok-Va revampedSide/constructionPoseThis charming little guy started out with my want to try and revamp the Bohrok with all it's original functions. If any of you have ever tried it, it's impossible. So, while doing my best, I rebuilt my Bohrok-Va and was messing with them, and managed to rebuild it in a cooler way with a small waist and more insectoid look using the same pieces. Since that limited mobility, I decided to try and revamp it using the rest of my parts and some ideas I've taken from other Va revamps. The result ended up to be very posable and very uniquely insectoid. I'm very proud of this one, and have since decided that I am much better at making small MOCs, and I can't build a titan to save my life. I'd say this is one of my favorites.So, what do you think, now that it's finally done? Comments and critism would be greatly appreciated!
