My entry to the new round of the bio-cup on Flickr. My Theme was real-life rahi. Tried to get as accurate to the original animal as well as adding some bio-mechanical elements.

the pieces used on his face makes it look like it has four eyes, but other than that, that's one darn impressive panda
Kind of intentional. Similar to how I remembered some of the rahi having multiple eyes. Would have had a single eye in the center if I found a good way to do so. Thanks for the comment!
Saw this on Flickr; the build is amazing!
I really love those pistons on the sides.
Amazing shaping. Looks just like a panda
If ever there was a moc that captured an element of real life accurately, it's this one.
This is just simply superb. Don't think I've ever seen a panda moc either before.
I give it a solid $$$$ out of $$$$
@ReeseEH Thank you! Didn't know how to make him look more like a rahi. The pistons were an idea to make it look more biomechanical.
@LTVmocs Thanks! That was one thing I wanted to nail.
@Samtastictogo Thanks so much! I've never seen a panda moc with constraction, but there have definitely been a few in regular lego.
Put blue studs for eyes so that the panda doesnt look all evily at your soul.
it's even cuter than I expected
@TeslaEffect That depends on the bear, right? Maybe this one is just a grumpy bear? Anyways, it was just a choice to have more contrast between the eyes and the black 'eyeshadow'.
@Bionicdeadpool Thanks! I tried to make it look as close to an actual panda as I could.
Those white Bohrok shields (I forget the specific Bohrok's name...this is embarrassing) really seal the deal, though the blue pins...eh, LEGO hasn't made any black ones since they were phased out in Toa Vakama in 2004, so I'll pass on that criticism. (I don't own any black axle pins.)
@SupersumCreations Thanks! They do have a nice shape to them
@Morgy Thank you!
Excellent work! Very panda-like (I crave orange chicken and fried rice now)
next project: ash bear
That's easy: Panda but with dark/gunmetal gray instead of white.
ash bear is burnt orange
Oh... Okay, then. So orange and black?
