This is my entry for the Artakha contest. I wanted to design something that people wouldn’t need to paint parts to build. I also wanted to keep to the style of '06 - '08 Bionicle. I did need to use a unique elbow and forearm design to support the mighty weight of his hammer. I had thought of using a smaller hammer, but I just loved the shape and color of the UCS Batmobile wheels.
It seemed natural for the Mask of Creation to also be gold in G1, seeing as other rare or legendary masks tend to gold until something bad happens to them. (Tarnished Vahi, mid-countdown Ignika, shadow leeched Avohkii) It also seemed fitting for the mask not to be only piece of gold on the build.
I made sure the neck joint can easily be replaced with a socket to accommodate a Metru head. I didn’t want to use the same feet as Karzahni (because they’re mutated), but they were the right size. I used the gray ones form Lewa Phantoka so they wouldn’t be identical, and because they should be easier for people to get.
The 2 neck designs
The Studio file has some collisions due to bad 3d models, but I can assure you that the build works in real life. Although, the one I built in real life is not the right color. The model for the G2 head is also not yet in Studio, so I made a part with the connections for posing. Please just pretend that it’s the real G2 head.
This moc uses Kryakwa’s Biopack for Studio.
