Favorite metallic colors
TERIDAX941 posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionSo! New "favorites" topic: what are your favorite metallic bionicle pieces? Gold, silver, iron grey (or whatever they called those) chrome, and all the varieties within those categories. I really liked the variety of gold they used with the Golden Kanohi in 2001. I was a bit saddened when it didn't make an appearance again. I did enjoy the bronze gold that Takanuva and Lhikan used, although I actually was probably expecting Lhikan to use pearl gold instead, since his first catalog description said "gold" which was later turned to "bronze" but oh well. Once Brutaka and the Piraka came onto the scene, now THAT was some gold work collecting. It seemed shinier, and had lots more kick to it in my opinion. Silver had lots of ups and downs for me. I recently gotten the chrome Hau which I think is the best silver mask one could get period. The silver Mata kanohi were nice, but seemed more grey than real silver. The protodermis masks seemed better fitting for the job, I was able to collect Onua's which made me super happy. Not much in my opinion to say about other metallic pieces. The dark grey pieces that came on Makuta were fun, and they made a comeback with Avak and Hakann... can't remember if I've seen them anywhere else. Last but not least, who can forget the metallic colors of the Krana-Kal. They deserve an honorable mention just for the variety of colors you got, especially with the green and blue. But that's me. What about you guys? Is there a type you love using in your MOCs, or that you just like more than others throughout the years?

Deflecto - The Dark Guardian (BFTGM)

He was once a great guardian of Okoto, but was corrupted by an unknown force, turning him into a cold, merciless hunter seeking power. His sole mission is to gain possession of the Mask of Ultimate Power, so he can take control of Okoto and rule with a literally cold iron fist. Deflecto is fully mechanical and possesses quick reflexes, and he can calculate and estimate what his opponents will do next and decide what is the best way to defeat him. The more you fight him, the more he learns your fighting style, and the more he will be able to counter it. He wields 2 mythical weapons known as the Blades of Avlanka, which can deflect nearly any form of projectile or elemental power. It can even absorb some of the power and then shoot it back out. So if a Toa of Fire sent a large blast of fire at the blades, they would deflect some of the elemental power and absorb the rest. The blades could then be used to send the power back at the Toa of Fire. The Blades of Avlanka are also very sharp, and can cut through nearly anything. Deflecto also has special laser eyes that can shoot a variety of rays & lasers, ranging from acting as a flashlight to providing X-ray vision to firing powerful energy beams. Deflecto's armor is made of a hard metal alloy consisting of silver, titanium, & platinum, which cannot be penetrated by most weapons. His main weaknesses are his gear-system & slowness. His ancient, mechanical inner-workings are exposed in one spot on his back, and damaging this section will cause Deflecto to be weakened, especially in his arms. His arms are able to spin as fast a saw blade, but damaging his gear-system will cause his arms to be slowed down and weakened. Although his arms are able to move and fight dangerously quickly, Deflecto cannot run very fast, as his legs are quite heavy and are old and rusty. Deflecto's logic systems have determined that the best way to obtain the Mask of Ultimate Power will be to first gain the Golden Skull Spider mask, so he can use the Skull Spiders to defeat and take control of all who oppose him, building up an army that none will be able to resist. He once encountered dimension-and-time-travelling Pohatu Mata and Pohatu Nuva, who had come on a mission to rescue Onua Nuva, Lewa Mata, & Lewa Nuva, who had all come to the Okotoverse to find and capture a villain called Vezon or something... the 3 ended up fighting and getting defeated by 2 dangerous villains known as Zigben & Ventox. When the Pohatus tried to rescue them, they encountered Deflecto, who, upon seeing that they were both wearing Masks of Speed, attacked them with all his strength and power. Pohatu Mata & Pohatu Nuva fought hard, and tried to use large rocks and boulders to stop Deflecto, but the rocks just bounced off of his blades and knocked them out, and they ended up having their masks knocked off, too. And before they could try to fight back and regain their masks, Zigben & Ventox showed up, and they were beat up even more, and left to live so they could, as Zigben said, "tell others about us and spread fear across the island." Zigben also decided he would finish them off later, and left them with their weapons so their defeat "wouldn't be too boring." Deflecto saw the 2 villains as a tool to help him obtain the Golden Skull Spider mask, and joined the now-trio of villains. Zigben promised Deflecto he would give him control over the Stone region of Okoto, but he doesn't intend to live up to his promise, and intends to destroy both Ventox & Zigben. And Deflecto doesn't intend to let Zigben obtain the Golden Skull Spider mask for himself. Knowing Ventox probably intends to betray Zigben and try to poison him, he will take advantage of this and claim the mask for himself while the two fight. He will then use the Skull Spiders to attack & eliminate Zigben & Ventox, using his blades to deflect their attacks. FUN FACT: "Deflecto" is Latin for "deflect", and "avlänka" is Swedish for "deflect". This is my 3rd BFTGM entry. Yes, he does feature an arm gear function, which works as well as the new 2015 sets in that is has full flexibility and does not cause floppy arms! One of my favorite parts of building this MOC was coming up with creative uses for the HF gun & foot pieces! Yes, I know what you're thinking, it's weird that he's using the HF chest armor add-on. I used that because it was the only silver armor I had that looked right, and it seemed to fit the style of the character. Think of the "H" as being a symbol put there when he was built, signifying his now-former status as a heroic guardian. Please feel free to like, comment, and criticize!

Hexann posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsThis is POKOROK. I got his name from Po-Koro and then I added a K at the end. And yes he looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much like Dekar. He is also part of my upcoming CUUSOO project. He is made up of 38 pieces......I think.http://www.brickshel...0622-141839.jpghttp://www.brickshel...0622-141844.jpghttp://www.brickshel...0622-141851.jpghttp://www.brickshel...0622-141856.jpghttp://www.brickshel...0622-141913.jpghttp://www.brickshel...0622-141930.jpghttp://www.brickshel...0622-141953.jpghttp://www.brickshel...0622-142002.jpghttp://www.brickshel...0622-142009.jpgGallery: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=506104 (When Public)
Velmorath, Mechanical Terror
Ballom Nom Nom posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsAnother recent MOC, built shortly before Stoxutu. Unlike Stoxutu, however, this guy is entirely Bionicle, using the slightly greebly aesthetic Bionicle had in abundance instead of the smoother HF aesthetic. May have been partially inspired by the Space Pirates from Metroid Prime. Credit to Shine for the foot design, although his version used Bohrok eyes rather than their teeth. "His mother was right. His face did freeze like that." ^Gallery^ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1011 12 13 14 15 16 17 Given that this is a mech, the head is supposed to be an eternally snarling death's head, rather than a truly functioning one. Hence the quote. Enjoy! ~B~
PowerBolt posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsSo I came back to messing around with my University Hero Factory Parts after I spent more time focusing on school and studying. I was mostly dissatisfied with what I had come up with before, so I guess the break away from the building helped refresh my creativity.In saying that, I absolutely LOVE this guy. I always wanted to create a Hammerhead Shark-type figure and this guy turned out better than I had ever hoped. He's my baby Anyway, here's Hammershawk - Front - Side - Top Detail - Swimming/Beached/Lazy - Sitting on the edge of a cliff while figuring out your problems in solitude - Aggressive Attack Pose - Happy Sunshine Strut - Crabby Friend - As I said, I love this guy, and I hope some of you can enjoy him as well Not sure what else to put here, so if you guys have any questions, I would be more than happy to answer. Talk to you later!

Aurum And Argentum Cats
The Other Kholin posted a topic in System-Based CreationsAurum (Gold)Argentum (Silver)Scientific Name: Felis aurum / Felis argentumHabitat: Forested mountains, occasionally other places, common around coastal areasDiet: Fish, squirrelsTameness rating (Out of ten): 9, With fish, 3Summary/Bio: The Gold and Silver Cats are legendary predators. They are large enough to ride (6 feet), and at full speed (which has only been achieved so far by threatening it with an Acid Eagle (Coming Soon!) and by taunting it with a fish) can break the sonic barrier. Their coats are pure gold or silver, but still softer than a feather bed. They make good companions if you've got a good sense of adventure and when to run for your life.

Sorry for so many pictures, but with a large, unorthodox MOC like this it's hard to get all the details into just a few. I'm really proud of this MOC, the complex angles in the thorax in particular. I'm glad TLG made Hordika chesplates, or else this MOC wouldn't exist. I think I used all of mine getting the shapes just right! Thanks for looking, be sure to comment and tell me what you think.

Silver the Hedgehog posted a topic in Completely Off TopicSilver's Story chapter 1 The portal to Mario world "Nooooooooooo." Silver said as he started for the portal. Once he was out he was in a strange universe. He saw a castle,but no Eggman Nega. It was clear that the portal took him somewhere else. "Great now Eggman Nega is going after Shadow,and once they battle there powers will create one black hole that can suck up this universe,Sonic's time and my time." Silver cried. Suddenly a woman in a pink dress with a golden crown came by. "Hello." she said. "what is your name?" she continued. "I am Silver. Silver the Hedgehog!" He exclaimed. "I am Peach. Princess Peach." She replied. "Can you tell me where another portal might be?" Silver asked. "Yes,it is in th- Bowser landed in a hot air balloon and interuppted. "You're mine now princess." Bowser roared. He quickly took her and fled the skys to his castle. "Mama mia!" Said Mario who was running outside. Silver ran up to him and said "Your Mario?". "Right?" He asked in a hurry. "Yes now lets go rescue her and I will show you to the portal." Mario replied. "What,I thought you could not talk?" Silver said curiously. "No time." Mario said."We have to go."
