The Great Scorpion - Nui-Jaga Revamp
joev14 posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsMy trans-yellow barraki eyes arrived in the mail today, so I figured I mine as well post the Nui-Jaga today. If this is the first of my models that you've seen, I recommend you take a look at my Nui-Rama and Tarakava Revamps. This model was probably the most difficult to add to out of all of them, mainly because the Nui Jaga really is just a scorpion. Regardless of that, I tried my very best to give it a new spin, mainly in giving it a fully articulate tail and arms, as well as adding pincers to the claws. I really enjoyed making the pincers while still managing to keep the original masks. Working with purple was also difficult, and it meant a lot of bricklink orders to get enough purple mata hands. Please comment, and upvote if you like it! Front Back Top Bottom New and Old Comparison Nui-Jaga vs. Pohatu! The Battle Continues! The Great Scorpion vs. The Master of Stone! Next up is the Kane-Ra. I chose to do this instead of the Muaka for two reasons. First, it fits better with my set colorscheme (all the models have black, then secondary colors are lime, then purple, then blue, then red, and lastly, yellow). I also chose to do this because I feel as though the Muaka has gotten a lot more attention. And don't worry, you'll still get an iconic scene with Kane-Ra vs. Kopaka, taken from Tale of the Toa.
BBC Contest #67: Masked Dedede & Meta knight
Ghidora131 posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsWell, I`m back. This honestly took much longer than I thought. I thought that they turned out well, let me know what You think. Seriously though, try to find a Dedede or Meta knight Anywhere made out of Bionicle or LEGO. ... Oops, links don`t work. | Well, if you scroll down a bit \/ Chro placed some properly working Links. Thanks, Chro! A little backstory on Masked Dedede: He was actually a boss in Kirby super star ultra for the Nintendo ds. His hammer can shoot missiles and charge up his super spin. He was re-introduced as a boss in Kirby triple deluxe on the Nintendo 3ds, releasing this may. As for Meta Knight, well-If you've played Super Smash Bros. Brawl, you know who he is. If not, there are tons of brilliant sources everywhere where you may learn more. If I was explaining Meta Knight, I would be here all day. I hope you enjoyed it, and please vote for it in BZP's 67th contest! Have fun! More info on King Dedede. http://kirby.wikia.com/wiki/King_Dedede
The Great Beings
Kopaka068 posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsThese are my takes on the Great Beings. These are old models, and were posted on here before, but that was over two years ago on the old forum, so I'm just uploading them here for everyone to see. I've had responses in the past say these look like the Element Lords, well, before we knew what they look like. I pictured each Great Being representing one of the tribes of Spherus Magna, so that's how I designed them. Well, I hope you enjoy them. (Click on each thumbnail to link to the full-size picture.)

A couple of Q's on Kanohi...
Illuminatus posted a topic in Bionicle Storyline & TheoriesSo, a few questions regarding the Kanohi masks have been circulating in my head for a while, and I thought I'd address them here, for the fine folk of BZP to discuss. :)First of all, if a Kanohi mask can be forged in any shape (thank God for that), is there like a strict (inbuilt?) algorithm that dictates what a given Kanohi mask would look like when it turns from Great to Noble? If so, is it connected only to the mask's physical shape or does its power also play a role in the process? Say, if someone were to make a Great Kanohi Hau in the shape of a Great Kanohi Huna, and gave it to a Toa who would later become a Turaga, would the Great Hau that looks like a Great Huna become a Noble Hau that looks like a Noble Huna or what? And what if someone made a Great Kanohi Huna in the shape of a Noble Kanohi Huna, what would that look like if it turned Noble? Oh, and are there any circumstances that would allow a Noble mask to turn into a Great one?And what are the mechanics of a Kanohi mask being "transformed", i.e. basically undergoing a process that alters it into an entirely different Kanohi? Like in the Inika becoming the Mahri case.Furthermore, if Toa can use powerless/Matoran masks, as well as Great and Noble ones, tapping into each category's full potential, and Matoran have been seen to wear Great and Noble masks, but only being able to use their life-sustaining powers, could a Turaga wearing a Great Kanohi mask technically use it to a "Noble extent"? We've never seen a case like this in the story, but I think it would make sense.Moving on, Kanohi Nuva are formed by regular masks being exposed to EP, right? So I take it the Kanohi Nuva would also be split into several categories? Say, if a Turaga were destined to become a Turaga Nuva (or, more easily, if an already existing Toa Nuva became a Turaga), their masks would become Noble Nuva masks, correct? Which means pretty much Noble Kanohi that the wearer could share with those among them? But can only a "Nuva" being utilize a Kanohi Nuva, and if not, to what extent would a regular Kanohi-wearing being be able to actually use a Kanohi Nuva?The other thing that's been bothering me is, whatever is exposed to EP would either perish or transform, depending on its destiny (or lack thereof?), right? So what if I hypothetically came across the Kanohi Vahi, and tossed it into a pool of Energized Protodermis? What do you guys think the consequences would be in either scenario?EDIT: Hm, I just read on BS01 that the Kanohi Ignika could revert/restore a Turaga back to a Toa, so that's the perfect prerequisite for a Noble mask becoming Great.
Flash Fire: Vakama
HordikaMode posted a topic in General Arthttp://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/poutwuw/Contestants/vakama.jpg Since I don't have a fancy drawing machine like most others, this was extremely difficult.This is it. If someone who has one of those tablet- or whatever it is- things, I'd like to see if they could color this more effectively.That's all.
Great Beings In The Mu?
bleedingshadows94 posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionSo, I couldn't find this topic anywhere, but please point me in the right direction if it's somewhere else, but I really want to start a discussion about the Great Being inside the Matoran Universe. Since Greg hasn't written too often, we should have enough time to discuss it and try to come up with clues. I actually have an opinion, but I don't want to announce it unless people respond... so please respond! >~Makuta'sdarkslave
Deep Into Darkness
Snoopy82 posted a topic in Short StoriesThis is a preview of my new epic. It is also my entry for the SS contest. Happy Halloween! ______ Two Le-Matoran stumbled down a wooded ravine, neither sure of where they were going. The air around them was cold and the sky was unnaturally dark—the sun’s efforts to reach them were defeated by the layers of thick, leafy tree canopies above them. “I told you we shouldn’t go out,” said the tall one. “Shut up,” said the short, round one. He tripped and fell first into a small creek. The tall one burst out laughing, both amused and thankful at the chance to stop. “So,” tall one said, taking a seat on the ground, “how many Rahi have we seen?” Short one spat a number of venomous curses in his companion’s direction. “None. That doesn’t mean I was wrong.” “But it does mean I was right.” Shorty sighed. “Look, I only know what I was told. That kid back in the village said he saw some animal or something, so the Turaga told us to check it out.” “You’re missing the point,” tall said. “I said that kid didn’t see anything. We both know he didn’t. If you don’t, you’re just… well, you’re just being stupid.” He glanced over his shoulder, before continuing somewhat ominously. “And we both know it’s time for the tribute.” Shorty laughed patronizingly. “Sure sure, I know all the stories. ‘Deep into darkness, a Matoran send, for the reign of terror, quickly to end.’ Do you really believe that? Do you really want me to believe that the Turaga would send two of his own to be eaten, or killed, or whatever you say, every month?” He looked away. “You’re the stupid one.” Tall sprung up. “Yeah, you laugh! You make fun of me, but you don’t realize what’s going on here! How many of us are there on this island? A hundred? Two hundred? And still we live in fear.” His companion stood. “Now wait a minute—” But Tall would not listen. “We out number him! We need to stand up to him, and show him the true power of what Matoran can do! There’s nothing that could stop us, if we put our minds to it! But not, instead we listen to feeble minded… twits like you who are fine with being slaves! ‘Oh no, the Toa will come they’ll save us…’ You’re the fool for believing that, let me tell you. There are no Toa. There never have been and there never will. We all know the Turaga just tell those lies to calm the hopeless. We’re alone on the island, each one of us, in more ways than one. We need to forget our pointless bantering and actually… do something!” The air chilled. Silence bid its way into the forest, as the two stood motionless. Shorty grasped for something to say, his face containing a look of anger and disgust, but he soon turned away. Tall at last spoke. “Let’s get back to the village already. There are no Rahi, no Toa and no Makuta out here. We’ve wasted our day.” “Do you really doubt me?” Tall’s eyes narrowed. The voice had been higher and gentler than Shorty’s. He must have not heard correctly. “What did you say?” Shorty turned to face him. “I didn’t say anything.” “But then who…” “I did.” Tall one nearly jumped out of his armor. He spun around to see another Matoran wearing a cloak. The newcomer’s Kanohi was entirely hidden by shadows. “Who… who are you?” asked Tall, backing up. By now Shorty had noticed and had likewise turned around. He was equally stupefied. “I have many names,” began the newcomer. “Some call me Everything. Some call me Nothing. But you, my children, may call me Master.” Shorty chuckled. “That’s a good one, Master. But really, who are you and what are you doing here?” But Tall was not so oblivious. “I don’t think you should…” “Oh please, he’s obviously crazy and just looking for someone’s attention here.” Scarcely had the words left Shorty’s mouth when he rose from the ground and was flung against a tree—he screamed in pain as he fell to the ground. Tall tried to move to help his companion but found himself unable to move. The newcomer slowly walked over to the fallen Matoran, his footsteps making now sounds as he drifted across the forest floor. “Pity,” he said, a touch of irony in his voice, “that any of my children must leave me.” Shorty started to scream. He flailed his legs violently as he clutched his throat, his yells becoming more and more muted… until finally they faded all together. The newcomer paused, looking down at the now-dead Matoran, before turning to Tall. He slowly and deliberately paced around Tall, speaking as he walked. “And so,” he said, “you have seen the fate of those who challenge me. You… have realized my awesome power and woeful might. And for that, you will be rewarded.” Tall relaxed himself. He found himself once again able to speak. “Thank you… master… what I said early was just… just talk…” “Stop the apologetics, before I regret my decision. There are a thousand ways I could kill you, each one of them more painful than the last. I have made more powerful beings than you scream in utter horror—screams which would make your blood curdle and your ears cry for mercy. It is only by my benevolent grace and mercy that I do not decimate this island, and all those whom you call brother with it. No, you will not die. But rather you will serve as a reminder of my good will and you shall be a testimony to my hold over you.” In one fast motion, he threw back his hood. Tall was immersed in a bath of blood red terror. The newcomer’s eyes tore through Tall’s mind and soul, as though they searched through every moment of his life. All in one moment Tall’s greatest fears were realized around him, while he saw his greatest desires shattered. He saw his loved ones dead, as his enemies stood over their bodies. Every awful moment of his life was relived, even as the good were forgotten. It was over in a matter of seconds. Tall fell to the ground, twitching slightly. He muttered incomprehensible nonsense under his breath, his mind having been destroyed completely and utterly. The newcomer sighed. He replaced his hood, and his blood red eyes were once again hidden by the shadows of his cloak. He looked down at the now demented Matoran. “Do not forget. I am everything. I am everywhere. I am forever. I am Makuta.” And he was gone.
Who/what Are The Great Beings?
ZTG posted a topic in Bionicle Storyline & TheoriesWhat are, or who are the Great Beings? Are they biomechanical? Aliens? Or humans with a high IQ. Post what you think. I truly and honestly think they are human. Maybe, just maybe, later on in the story, we will figure out who they are...
