Hi! I'm Solaire, and I'm new here. Since BIONICLE is celebrating its 20th anniversary, I've decided to share some of my "modifications" to the legendary Toa team that started it all: the Toa Mata! I've made weapon holster for four of them, taking inspiration from those old videos. Here are some screenshots (the last one is not official but illustrates my point quite well) (from : BIONICLE: masks of power) The magic of CGI ... KOPAKA Like kopaka himself, this holster is simple yet effective: no illegal technics here. Here's the parts list and result: Then all you have to do is to insert it in the axe hole in his back: And voilà ! TAHU For Tahu there's a little trick: the holes on the fire sword are way too high. So I've used the thickness of the blade (which is the same as a plate for some reason) in conjunction with exo-force claws to hold it in place. And it's very secure! LEWA Lewa's holster was quite hard to figure out! There was no usable legal connection, so I had to think outside the box. Using two minifig wrenches I was able to simulate a hole the size of an axel. That configuration allowed the axe to hold securely. Be sure to push it as far as you can against Lewa's back to have maximum friction. GALI Soooo many prototypes for this one ! after considering using the hips for placement I decided to use the natural shape of the hooks to hide them around the back gear. It's way sleeker than my earlier attempts. Another illegal connection: using the piston detailing on the insides of both hooks, I was able to overlap them in a satisfying shape. The grey custom piece ( made from those parts that hold railways set inbox) is replaceable by a cut pneumatic hose of length 1:1 ONUA and POHATU There's nothing to store! Onua's claws ARE his hands ... that would be creepy. And Pohatu can hold his rock under his arm CONCLUSION One thing to note is that the gear functions are still perfectly usable. hooray ! So now, after twenty years of honourable service, our heroes can finally lay down their weapons and celebrate! while the four of them compare upgrades, Onua and Pohatu seem confused as to why it's such a big deal But There's still an important matter to discuss: what flavour will be the cake? If I know anything about them, it's that it's going to take a while. You want what ?! ... I guess MY work isn't over That's all for now! I'm always eager to learn and improve so feel free to share your opinion. PS: apologies if my phrasing seems strange. English is not my native language. ^^'
HERO FACTORY AREA FORCE'S BARK MAGNET soaking. icy. welcoming. the tundra planet of bark magnet is no place for the faint of emotions. it is also no place for the bad-hearted. greed is frowned upon, because resources are practically crashing into the tundra every day thanks to those meteors (thanks meteors). as such, people get together and celebrate almost 24/7, and almost never have disputes. resources are very safe because most people are good and nice and good. times are great, and they only look to become greater. it was only recently the Happy Tribe arrived, to a very warm welcome from the warm tribe of warmth (they're warm). since then, people have been happier because they're the happy tribe DUH. all the other tribes work together and are not in a civil war and never will be. the tribes, as they are, have no major problems. apart from celebrating 24/7 and dying of exhaustion, they get a bit carried away sorry. welcome to bark magnet, we love you and you love us and if you don't you soon will
...To be ones already known of. Don't know what I'm talking about? One of the many wacky foreign and non-canon combiners G1 had was this often liked diddy that mixes together the blue, red and black Rahkshi into one staff wielding warrior. What you may not know is that there were apparently other models that came from the same Brickshelf gallery it came from that were not used in the (Western, at least) LEGO magazine it appeared in. These are more... out there, to say the least. And when asked if they should also be include in the alternate model database back in October, Volitak_Boxor said no because they weren't, to out knowledge, LEGO-sanctioned like the Japanese model was. Until now... While browsing on Google, I came across this old BZPower news archive page that shows the picture of one of the combiners and lists it as being one of four "Inspired by BIONICLE" creations available on BIONICLE.com's Builder's Section without instructions but rather a single image, and also that they weren't seen on the LEGO Club website. So I went through the Wayback Machine for the Builder's Section page around this date and did indeed find four "Inspiration Models" without images saved. And clicking for a close-up gave more information. "Inspirational Model #1" uses Turahk, Vorahk & Guurahk so it matches the magazine-published combiner and states "Tip: Use the Rahkshi shoulder parts to create the body of this imposing character.". "Inspirational Model #2" uses Panrahk, Kurahk & Lerahk so it matches the BZPower listed image's combiner and states "Tip: Use Rahkshi back parts to create the long arms. Remember that good balance is the most important part of this model!". "Inspirational Model #3" uses Onua Nuva, Pahrak-Kal, Pohatu Nuva & Nuhvok-Kal so it must be the duo combiner and states "Tip: Using Onua Nuva and Pahrak-Kal, you can create the silver version of this Ape-like creature. By combining Pohatu Nuva and Nuhvok-Kal, you can also create his golden-faced twin!". And "Inspirational Model #4" uses Tahu Nuva and Kohrak-Kal so it must be the remaining combiner and states "Tip: Combine the various limbs of both Tahu Nuva and Kohrak-Kal to create extra-long legs!". So in terms of obscure and goofy, but LEGO-sanctioned combiners, we can also now add these guys to the continually growing list!
