Various Combo and Alternate Models
Teel Guy posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsFirst time postin' to bzp. Guess I'll just dump all the combo models I've built up last year. Lehvak Kaita (Lehvak + Lehvak Va + Lehvak Kal) This guy was the first one and a strong start if I may say so myself. He's kinda bright since I made the kal pieces pearl very light grey instead of pearl light grey. It took me a while to figure that out... Some Swans idk (Gahlok Kal + Kopaka; Tahnok Kal + Tahu) These two are small and simple but the li'l guys make the big cool guys look even bigger and cooler by comparison. I like 'em. Bohrok Mega Fusion (all 3 Nuhvok + all 3 Kohrak) I took the cool anime robot and made it cooler and anime-er. Metru Nui Arachnid (all 6 metrutoran) Li'l Rahi? I'm not great at naming these (all 3 are combos of 2 bohrok va each) Toa Nui (the 6 toa mata) This was a fun and kinda inevitable challenge. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Also a user on the r/bioniclelego subreddit actually built it irl. Toa Nui but Lewa is actually represented (same) Took me a while to realise that a toa nui should represent all 6 of the toa. I prefer the lewaless variant. Bohrok Ultima (6 bohrok + 6 bohrok va + 6 bohrok kal) This is my combiner magnum opus. It'll take a long while to get all the bohrok but I definitely want to build this one irl. Rahkshi Grappler (Guurahk + Panrahk + Vorahk + Kurahk) One day I remembered the rahkshi had some neat combo models. Then this build was born. Rahydra (rahaga norik + kualus + bomonga) Mahri Nui Silverback Ray (Dekar/Defilak alt) This started as a Dekar alt model but then I realised either of them could be used for this. Akamai+ (tahu + pohatu + onua both mata and nuva + turaga vakama + whenua + onewa) Rahkshi Nui (all of the sluggers) Dark Hunter Triglax (Roodaka + Sidorak) I was surprised this was the only titan combo 05 didn't do. Also was inspired by the flatwoods monster. Dark Hunters are fun. Nuhvok Kaita (like the first one but nuhvok) Rahkshi Kaita Yo (Vorahk + Lerahk + Turahk) This one was actually made for Takutanuva's community project over on the ttv message boards. That was real fun, I suggest y'all check out the other combiners that were submitted for that. Voya Nui Digging Crab (Velika + Garan + Piruk) Bohrok Kaita Kal Ja but better (Tahnok + Nuhvok + Pahrak) First one I actually built irl. And that's all of them. So far. Feel free to build any of these and if y'all do please share 'em here. I'd love to see it!
Comprehensive Bionicle Alternate Model Database
Volitak_Boxor posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionProject Status 1/24/2014 (Note: More information on what this project actually is can be found below) Database Location: tinyurl.com/ll439am The database is a Google Doc that anybody can edit. However, please state in this topic what you plan to work on, so two people don't try to do the same thing. Planned Work / Work in Progress -Volitak_Boxor: Matoran Nui Instructions - TomRoid: Compiling info on fan-made canon models with instructions Completed Work - Basic Framework Established - Names, set numbers, and images for all known combiners - All known existing, official combiner instructions compiled and linked - Possible exception: Korean Piraka Combiner #1 (the Irnakk clone) To-Do List (feel free to claim a task!) - Create instructions for: - Alternate Turaga Kabaya Combiners 2 and 3 - Alternate Bohrok Va Combiners 2 and 3 - Japanese Bohrok Combiner - 2003 Matoran Combiners - Many more! - Begin inventory creation? Original Post: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I noticed in a few recent topics that there's an interest in a full, all-inclusive list of Bionicle combiners and alternate models, but to the best of my knowledge, no such list exists. BZPower has a combiner database, but it doesn't have any associated instructions. BS01 also has a lot of useful information, but some of its files are scattered across the wiki, especially for the non-canon combiners. What I envision is a list of alternate models, organized by year, with a listing of the necessary sets needed to build it (with set numbers), a high-quality image, and easy-to-read instructions. Unfortunately, I don't have the free time to assemble this list on my own, so I thought I'd turn to the community. I do have a start, though: I put together a Google Doc with a listing of the names and required sets to construct all combiners and alternate models I could think of. This is the link: tinyurl.com/ll439am This list was made mostly from memory, with a bit of consultation of BS01 and the BZPower set database. It's probably got a few typos in it, so if you see any, please let me know. The document is open for anybody to comment on. I'd appreciate any feedback, either within that document or in this topic. Now, if anyone is interested in this project, I can open up that document for editing. Here's what I'd like to see: -Set numbers and official names for the component sets: This should be simple enough; it'll just take a bit of time -High-quality images for each model: BS01 has most images, and the others can be found by digging through Brickshelf galleries with Google. Not too hard, but time consuming. -Good, easy-to-read instructions: This is the hard part. Most combiners have PDF instructions online, but not all of them do. Some, like Zivon or the Pit War Tortoise, just have scans of magazine pages, and those instructions can be pretty hard to read. Others, like some Kabaya models, have instructions that are legible, but hard to follow in some cases. Still other combiners, like the 2003 Matoran combiners or the Japanese Magazine Rahkshi combiner, have no instructions at all, or at least none that I can find. If people would be willing to contribute by either creating LDD instructions or taking a series of photos that illustrate the building process, I think that would be fantastic. Anyway, that's my idea. What do you think? Does this interest anybody? I'd love to hear any comments or constructive criticism that anybody has. A few final notes: First, here's a link to the Japanese Bohrok Combiner topic from a week or two ago, which contains a lot of good information on obscure, foreign combiners: www.bzpower.com/board/topic/15066-japanese-bohrok-combiner/ Second, I've heard discussion about a BS01 set database. Has that actually begun development yet? If so, it would probably be better to integrate this plan into that, instead of making a totally separate thing. If not, if this project takes off, maybe it could be a useful resource once the set database development fully begins. Finally, on a bit of a tangent, has anybody here actually built the Ranama or the Kirikori Nui? Those seem like some of the most obscure and hardest-to-construct (or at least collect the parts for) non-foreign combiners. They aren't really even combiners, just alternate models... If you have any questions, just ask. I hope you like this idea!
Voporak vs Takutanuva
Tarix819 posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionWhich is more uncommon/harder to find? Voporak or Takutanuva? I know both sets can be created using various Titans of 2003/2005 but I would like to know the rarity of the special edition 3 in 1 or 2 in one versions. Thanks
Some of you may remember about a year and a half ago, BZPower member Volitak_Boxor posted a topic about a previously undiscovered 2003 Matoran Combiner, the instructions of which appeared to be included in a Kabaya promtional release of some of the 2003 Matoran. The only images of the instructions that were able to be located were quite low res, and no one seemed to own a Kabaya Hafu, Macku, or Hewkii. Now that I've nearly completed my Bionicle collection, I decided to order a Kabaya Hafu to get a copy of these instructions. I've also documented the unboxing process to show off this rare promotional item. In fact, this may be the first English review of a 2003 Kabaya Matoran set. I didn't have access to a real camera, so some of the lighting and composition of the photos may be kind of off/bad. I also don't speak Japanese, so if you can and some of the images aren't clear enough to read, PM me and I can retake pictures if necessary. Front Image. The entire set is shrink wrapped, and there is a smaller box with the Kabaya logo attached to the bottom. Back Image. Notice Hewkii, Hafu, and Macku on the back of the smaller box, presumably our first bit of evidence about the undiscovered combiner. Right side of the box. The big white sticker is attached to the shrink wrap itself, and appears to be some kind of warning about the candy. Also note the image of the combiner. Left side of the box. At this point, we've removed the shrink wrap and are now looking at the smaller box by itself. Front of the smaller box. Back of the smaller box Right side. Image of the elusive combiner. Left side. Some Japanese text. Top. Mostly Japanese text with a diagram showing how to open the box. Bottom. Barcode and more Japanese text I also took some images of the box compared with a European and an American box from my own collection to show some of the differences. In the next few images, the European box is always on the left, or the top when applicable, while the American box is always on the right, or the bottom. Front, Back. Top, Bottom. The image of Takanuva, Makuta, and the island of Mata Nui on the Kabaya box is actually a sticker (more visible here) that has been attached to the box itself. It's my belief that the Kabaya box is merely a European box with the sticker slapped on, because after opening the Hafu set, I found what looks like to be a standard 2003 Hafu without any instructions to the combiner. The instructions were normal in appearance. Having gone back and opened up the smaller box, we're greeted by some white hard candy and a folded up instruction sheet. The candy looks surprisingly normal for being so old. It's unclear whether or not it fits in a Zamor launcher. High resolution scan of the combiner instructions. I've left these unedited. High resolution scan of the back of the combiner instructions. Unfortunately, it just shows that you can combine 3 Rahkshi in to the Rahkshi Kaita Za and Vo models. And that's all I've got. I hope you enjoyed this unboxing. If you'd like to see the unedited images in their full size, there is an unsorted imgur album here. I must say, it's quite an interesting feeling to opening a set this old. Fresh G1 parts are always nice though. Meanwhile, I'm off to Bricklink to get another Black Pakari to turn Hafu into a rebuilt Taipu for my collection.
Instructions for 2003 Inspirational Models
Volitak_Boxor posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionAlmost a year ago, in this topic, it was discovered that a few combiner models of uncertain origin had actually been featured on the Bionicle website in late 2003. For those unfamiliar, these are the four models: The first model was comparatively well-known, since it was featured on the back of one of the comics from 2003, but the other models seemed like they had been mostly forgotten. Months ago, I tried to reverse-engineer and rebuild some of these models, and inspired by all the more timely Makuta-replicating topics, I finally got around to photographing a series of steps needed to construct these models. I wanted to share what I'd done: Onua Nuva + Pahrak-Kal / Pohatu Nuva + Nuhvok-Kal: http://biosector01.com/wiki/index.php/File:Inspirational_Model_3_Instructions.pdf Tahu Nuva + Kohrok-Kal: http://biosector01.com/wiki/images/a/a3/Inspirational_Model_4_Instructions.pdf I think that these reconstructions are mostly accurate, at least as far as I can tell from a single image. If anyone notices a discrepancy, though, please let me know. The Onua Nuva + Pahrak-Kal model does use one extra #2 axle, but I couldn't find a workaround that matched the photo as closely. Also, I'm curious if anyone is interested in trying to reconstruct the second model, built from Lehvak, Panrahk, and Kurahk. I don't have any idea how to rebuild that torso, but if someone else figures it out, I'd probably be willing to create a similar set of detailed photo instructions, if nobody else does.
Fry posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionGeneral combiner thread I guess. So, anyone know any cool combiners (fan or not fanmade)? I think that this: and this are pretty cool:

You see what I mean? I know many of them are repetitive, but that's how I would like them to be when Lego would have published them. What about your combiners in mind?
Wildlife of Okoto
Nescent posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsThe mythical island of Okoto is complete with every variety of environments. There are volcanoes, glacial mountains, deep waters, swampy jungles, hot deserts, murky underground caves - but what dwells within the island's wilderness? Presenting... Wildlife of Okoto Rahi combiners and alternates for the 2015 Winter Bionicle sets. As always, click the photos for a much higher resolution. Region of Stone The great barren desert spreads across the northwestern part of Okoto. The most dangerous phenomenon in the desert is sandstorms that blow across the wasteland. Dikapi The Dikapi are two-legged Rahi found in the Region of Stone. They are friendly, docile creatures, and they wander the deserts in flocks, bringing a certain pleasant charm that is appreciated by all Stone villagers. Build Dikapi with 70779: Protector of Stone! Oko Kani The Oko Kani is a large Rahi found in the rocky Region of Stone. It blends in with the environment with both color and shape, making it an effective hunter. In the wild, Oko Kani are hostile, dangerous creatures that live in packs. However, some have been captured when they were young, and domesticated to be kept as pets. Domesticated Oko Kani are friendly, playful, and loyal to their owners. Build Oko Kani with 70779: Protector of Stone and 70781: Protector of Earth! Instructions for the Oko-Kani. Okoto Mukau The Okoto Mukau is a bovine Rahi most commonly found in the Region of Stone. It spends most of its time grazing, and emits a signature deep moaning noise periodically. Build Okoto Mukau with 70785: Pohatu-Master of Stone, and 70786: Gali-Master of Water! Instructions for the Okoto Mukau. Electric Hawk Electric Hawks are massive, electrically-charged bird-like Rahi. They stalk the deserts, walking on two feet, and they attack by flinging their tail and zapping foes with their electric wings. Build Electric Hawk with 70779: Protector of Stone and 70778: Protector of Jungle! Instructions or the Electric Hawk. Region of Fire Several mighty volcanoes are nested in the fiery Region of Fire. Lava Ussal The Lava Ussal is a small, passive toad-like crab that lives in the lava pits within the Region of Fire. They are not predators of any sort, and spend most of their time lounging around near the villages, emitting their signature rumbling purr. Build Lava Ussal with 70783: Protector of Fire! Instructions for the Lava Ussal. Magma Fox The Magma Foxes of the Region of Fire are one of Okoto's friendliest Rahi. In the wild, they are seen as playful, approachable, kind, and gentle creatures. However, unlike the Region of Stone's Oko Kani, Magma Foxes cannot be domesticated - even when captured as a baby. They tend to be erratic, and difficult to keep in a home. Build Magma Fox with 70783: Protector of Fire and 70782: Protector of Ice! Instructions for the Magma Fox. Komodo The fiercest, most dangerous, and most cunning Rahi on Okoto is the Komodo. They live in the Region of Fire's most hostile areas, often in groups of two or three. They vary in size, but even the smallest Komodos can cripple a villager. They are a similar species to the Oko Maga, however the Komodo are far more dangerous, and significantly larger in size. Build Komodo with Pohatu, Onua, Tahu, Protector of Stone, Protector of Earth, and Protector of Fire! Instructions for the Komodo. Magma Entity The Magma Entities of the Region of Fire are rarely seen on the surface. They are made of pure lava, and are found swimming in the Region's lava pools. They are hostile, but tend to ignore others unless approached. Their only method of attacking involves spraying lava at their opponent. Build Magma Entity with 70783: Protector of Fire and 70787: Tahu-Master of Fire! Magma Strider Magma Striders are found in small numbers along the outskirts of the Region of Fire. They are medium-sized, slow, passive Rahi which tend to migrate throughout the Region's outskirts, avoiding conflict and sticking together. Build Magma Strider with 70783: Protector of Fire and 70787: Tahu-Master of Fire! Baby Phoenix The Baby Phoenix is born from the lava within the Region of Fire's volcanos. Unlike the larger Phoenix, which is solitary and passive, the Baby Phoenix is often seen flying around the volcanos, leaving a trail of fire in its wake. Build Baby Phoenix with 70783: Protector of Fire and 70787: Tahu-Master of Fire! Instructions for the Baby Phoenix. Phoenix The mighty Phoenix nests high up in the Region of Fire's volcanos. It emerges as a baby from the lava itself, and is composed almost entirely of fire. Although it is revered among the Fire villagers, and considered a majestic beast, the Phoenix is an extremely dangerous and solitary Rahi. Build Phoenix with 70783: Protector of Fire, 70787: Tahu-Master of Fire, and 70784: Lewa-Master of Jungle! Instructions for the Phoenix. Region of Earth The western part of Okoto is rich with obsidian fields. It is a black, glasslike and nightmarish place full of treacherous ravines, crevices and deep rifts. Oko Raga The Oko Raga is a small hostile Rahi with immense upper-body strength. It lives underground, in the caves around the Region of Earth. Oko Raga are periodically encountered in the region, and are a formidable foe to any villager. Build Oko Raga with 70781: Protector of Earth! Instructions for the Oko Raga. Oko Maga The Oko Maga is one of the larger Rahi on Okoto. It lives underground, and it is unknown how many are in existence. Only three have been sighted, and every encounter has resulted in death or severe injury. Its natural armor seems to resemble rock, and its claws are used to mangle its prey. Build Oko Maga with 70785: Pohatu-Master of Stone and 70789: Onua-Master of Earth! Instructions for the Oko Maga. Crystal Spineback The Crystal Spineback is a hunched humanoid Rahi with thick rocky skin, and spikes along its skull and shoulders for protection. The heavy beast is often seen digging and exploring, and is slow in nature. They are powerful, but friendly creatures. Build Crystal Spineback with 70783: Protector of Fire and 70781: Protector of Earth! Region of Ice Glaciers and tundra permanently freeze the northern part of Okoto. Great snowstorms blow across the region flashfreezing everything. Ice Bear The Ice Bear is a small, passive Rahi native to the Region of Ice. They dwell in small numbers, keeping to the caves for shelter. Most Ice Bears are seen in the northern glaciers of Okoto. Build Ice Bear with 70782: Protector of Ice! Ice Bat Ice Bats congregate in the glacial caves in the Region of Ice, clinging to the ceiling, disguised as icicles. They are nocturnal creatures, dormant through the day but swarming through the night. They do not take kindly to intruders, and will attack anything that enters their cave. Build Ice Bat with 70782: Protector of Ice and 70780: Protector of Water! Boar Boar inhabit the caves and forests in the Region of Ice. Due to their thick skin, heavy weight, and powerful tusks, the beasts are extremely threatening to villagers and other Rahi. They are known to charge at their opponents, swinging their tusks wildly and smashing everything in their path. Build Boar with 70782: Protector of Ice and 70781: Protector of Earth! Instructions for the Boar. Tarrantis The Region of Ice is home of the Tarranis, one of the deadliest Rahi on Okoto. They occupy large, communal nests immediately beneath the icy ground, swooping to the surface to prey on any living thing that wanders by. Build Tarrantis with 70782: Protector of Ice and 70788: Kopaka-Master of Ice! Region of Water The Region of Water is composed of lakes and thundering rivers that form large deltas as well as strings of fertile islands along the eastern coast of Okoto. Siren Little is known about the Sirens, but they are believed to be intelligent. They live together in large numbers, making homes on the ocean floor around Okoto. Many of them carry weapons, such as spears and tridents. They are small creatures, roughly the size of a child, however they always travel in groups, and are extremely hostile. Build Siren with 70780: Protector of Water! Bottom Feeder Bottom Feeders are bioluminescent creatures common in the Region of Water. They are slightly large, yet completely harmless, and spend their lives sweeping scraps from the ocean floor. Build Bottom Feeder with 70780: Protector of Water and 70778: Protector of Jungle! Instructions for the Bottom Feeder. Tarakava The mighty Tarakava is a large aquatic creature with enormous flippers, strong arms, and graceful fins along its back. It is hostile towards villagers and most Rahi, but due to its size, it keeps to deep waters and is rarely seen near the surface. Build Tarakava with 70780: Protector of Water and 70786 Gali-Master of Water! Instructions for the Tarakava. Region of Jungle Okoto's jungles are dangerous places full of gigantic trees and savage wildlife. The jungles hold the most ancient of the Protector Ruins, now overgrown and forgotten. Parik The Parik are tall, bird-like Rahi. They have long, slender legs and necks, and bushy blue wings folded at their sides. Most Parik are found along the border of the Region of Water, and they are also extremely common in the Region of Jungle. They will ignore others most of the time, but if provoked they are extremely fast runners, and will claw their way out of a fight. Build Parik with 70786 Gali-Master of Water! Purple Happik The plump Purple Happik seems to exist for one simple reason: to bring a smile to every villager's mask after a long day of labor. Their color is a reflection of their attitude, and there is nothing more charming than a flock of Happiks dancing in the wild. They are often found in the Region of Jungle; however, they constantly migrate, so for the most part they are seen all throughout the island. Build Purple Happik with 70789: Onua-Master of Earth! Orange Kuckoo Bird Kuckoo Birds are extremely fast runners, and the most common breed is orange with green. They are independent Rahi, however the medium-sized birds occasionally gather together for stampedes through the Region of Jungle. Build Orange Kuckoo Bird with 70778: Protector of Jungle! Chameleon The large Chameleon is a signature Rahi in the Region of Jungle. Although they are huge in size, Chameleons are rarely seen due to their ability to blend in with their surroundings. The reptiles are revered among the Jungle villagers, and are an intriguing Rahi to all who encounter them. Build Chameleon with 70778: Protector of Jungle, 70787: Tahu-Master of Fire, and 70784: Lewa-Master of Jungle! Instructions for the Chameleon.
New/Rediscovered Combiner: 2003 Kabaya Matoran!
Volitak_Boxor posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionI've been working with a few other people to create a database containing information and instructions for all known combination models for Bionicle sets, and today, a user with the screen Name JBOboe720 shared some information about a model I'd never seen before: a Kabaya combiner for the 2003 Matoran sets Hewkii, Hafu, and Macku. It's been known that Kabaya versions of these three sets existed (they're mentioned on Bricklink, for example), but unlike the Kabaya Turaga and Bohrok Va, their boxes show the standard 2003 Matoran Combiner (the four-armed figure and quadruped) that's depicted on American boxes. However, these sets' instruction sheets include steps to build a different model that uses pieces from just Hewkii, Hafu, and Macku. As far as I can tell, this model has been pretty much forgotten by the BZP Community, since nobody has mentioned it in previous discussions, and neither Google Image searches nor searching the news archives of BZP seemed to provide many details of this model, or even of the 2003 Matoran Kabaya sets in general. An old Mask of Destiny page (we can talk about them now, right?) that I found after doing some more research mentions the existence of the instructions, but there's no images, just a broken link to a decade-old forum topic. Anyway, JBOboe720 provided me with a link to a Japanese web page that includes photos of the three Kabaya Matorans' boxes and the instructions for their combiner (as well as another picture of a Lerahk wielding Surge's lightning weapons, oddly enough). Does anybody here remember this combiner or know anything about it? If someone actually owned one of the 2003 Kabaya Matoran and could provide a better image of the instructions, that'd be spectacular. I don't think the model itself is all that great, but it's neat to know that there's still combiner models out there that I never knew about before. JBOboe720, thanks for the tip! If you're a BZP member (which I assume you are, since you found the combiner database), and you want to share your username here, I can give credit where credit is due. What do you guys think of this "new" model?
Bionicle 2015 Combiners
Nidhiki of the Shadows posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsSo around last week I got a little stressed out from studying mid-terms so I decided to let off some steam and make a BBC#69 entry out of just the Gali and Tahu sets. It was a lot of fun, so I tore apart the rest of the sets I had on me and built a couple of random combiners. It was my first time building with CCBS so they turned out pretty basic. You can see the topic for my 2015 Trinuma moc here. Okoto Beast Built from Protectors of Earth and Jungle. I was inspired by Nescent's awesome Wildlife of Okoto topic and attempted to create something akin to a Rahi of the previous gen. Don't really have a backstory for it, but liked how it turned out. Gallery Skullion, Master of Skulls Built from Tahu, Gali and Lord of Skull Spiders. This one was fun to build. I wanted to make it look like the Lord of Skull Spiders was still living in Skullion's chest, so he has a bit of an action feature where it can "come to life", as seen below: The upper legs are connected to the back and a lever flips them up, allowing for a snapping motion (details in the gallery). It also allows for some varied armour designs. Even as a humanoid, the Lord of Skull Spiders continues to control his Skull Spider army. Gallery And as an added bonus, here's an old polaroid of my brother and I over 10 years ago with an original Matoran Kaita, a modified one, and a super omega Toa Kaita. -NotS
Bionicle Combiner Challenge
Kuurai posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsHello all! For my first forum post, I will display a MOC I created years ago (and it is miraculously still constructed). This and a few more MOCs I created is a result of a challenge issued to myself to create a MOC using pieces limited to two Bionicle sets similar to what Lego originally did with the Toa Mata (Wairuha and Akamai) and later sets. This MOC was constructed using only pieces from the sets 8619 (Keerakh) and 8743 (Boggarak): + = Full Gallery Name: Kravakh Species: Vahki (Specialized Model) Origin: More than 1000 years ago in Metru Nui, Turaga Dume issued in secret that a new, specialized version of the Vahki, like the Kraahu and the Kranua, be constructed by a select group of Po-Matoran. This new Vahki was to be built to deal with foes that other Vahki could not contend with, essentially having hopes of creating a Vahki that could overpower and outmatch foes as powerful as a Toa. With the scale of the power Turaga Dume had in mind, the Po-Matoran tried but could not replicate what the Turaga had requested. They then resorted to implementing energized protodermis, obtained illegally and in secret, which resulted in a singular, very powerful and very sentient Vahki. The energized protodermis-infused prototype seemed to work to perfection until it stepped into the shadows. It then proceeded to destroy the Po-Matorans' laboratory and obliterate its creators, fleeing to the depths of the sub-levels of the Onu-Metru Archives, never to be seen or heard from again. Abilities and Powers: 1. It had the ability to absorb whatever power that touched its shield and channel it into a synthesized kanoka disk which could be launched from its launcher-claw 2. It could load and fire any kanoka disk 3. The white apparatus attached to its launcher-claw acted as a remote control for the disks it launched. To control the speed, it tilted its claw accordingly. To control the direction, it pointed its claw to its desired location (sort of like using a Wii remote) 4. It had secondary arms which had retractable scythes for hands, granting a better offensive and defensive advantage in battle, as well as granting it the ability to fly 5. It's shield, resembling a Visorak, could fire Rhotuka spinners with the power of any Kanoka disk, albiet the power level is fixed at 3 6. I could shape-shift into an auto-turret 7. Being a sentient machine, it was highly intelligent, able to predict and deal with scenarios in the best and cleverest way possible 8. Most dangerously, when exposed to shadow, it becomes a negative image of itself, which is stronger and more aggressive. Note: Image displayed is the Light version of the Kravakh, unexposed to shadow, generally protective and non-aggressive to civilians.
Hero Factory Combiners
tomdroidser posted a topic in Hero Factory DiscussionI had, for a while, built Hero Factory combiner sets with instructions from the Hero Factory website. I built set combiners 2182+2191 (which will be called Bird Dog) and 2143+2145 (who, for convenience, will be called Lion King). Bird Dog picture is linked, but I don't have an individual picture of Lion King. Anybody else built official Hero Factory combiners?-Tomdroidser
