Hi, it's Sokoda again with a ne Brickonicle set concept.
Yeah ok I lied, it was April first.
I've been working on this for quite a while now and some of you might have seen a bit of it when I was on The Eljay Johnsen Show.
The set has 848 pieces including the 5 masks which I have painted on to show what the minifigures would look like.
So, this is the new set:
The set includes the Crystal Climber, the Ihu Gate, a Mangaian attack wagon and five minifigures: Tahu, Kopaka, two Ihu-Matoran and a Mangai-Matoran
1. The Crystal Climber
The Crystal Climber is based of cause on the G1 Crystal Climber, although I took some liberties with this one. I tried to mix technic, CCBS and System for this one to give it a more biomechanical look. I also added a saddle, some red flags and two backpacks, snowshoes and a telescope, to show that the Crystal Climber is a tamed Rahi the Ihuans use to patrol their region.
2. The Ihu Gate
The structure included is a Gate at the border of Ihu-territory. It has a Ice-turret and of cause the gate can be opened and closed. I tried to implement some calssic G1 pieces into the build as well.
By folding out the two "Ice piles" on the sides of the gate it can be connected with some of my other builds and some little easter eggs are revealed in the ice.
3. The Mangaian attack wagon
For a bit of conflict in the box, I included a little wagon, for the Mangians to attck witch. The wagon has a spring-loaded shooter.
4. The Minifigures
My Toa are still unchanged and use the official TTV designs.
For my Matoran prints I made a new mask this time. It's my system interpretation of the noble Huna. With the Matoran prints I reied to represent their regions a bit. The Mangians are more battle orientated, so the matoran wear metal armor. The Ihuans are a Kingdom in the Ice, that's why I gave all of them some kind of clothing.
Additionally I made a render to show what the Matoran would look like with the new mid-sized legs.
So that's my new set concept, hope you like it and I hope we can get a bit more Brickonicle discoussion again. My next set will take a while to come out, because I am working on another LDD-project at the moment, that prrobably will take me quite a while to build and render.
