Thanks! I like their designs too, the longer arms and legs and the new details on their head. I have some of their models on my pc and hope to one day be able to paint mine exactly like the ones in the game. I always hoped as a kid they would be rereleased. Sadly Bionicle is R.I.P. now, was a great time though.
Cool, really nice attention to detail
Yah, but this is the good heresy.
Barely a change from the original Rahkshi but its a good improvement.
Welcome to the boards by the way!
Thanks! I like the Rahkshi design from the game alot so I focused on trying to make a real version of that. I hope to one day paint mine like the ones from the game and modify their pieces more.
I really like the boards. Alot of cool creations here and nice people.
These are my childhood dream made into reality.
Thanks! I loved the designs from the game and also dreamed of one day having one like them.
Dang, lots of custom pieces going on here! They look really good! It’s great to see somebody try and replicate the MoL-style Rahkshi head. He looks very similar to the Heroes Panrahk, good job! Those arms are very nice!
My biggest critique would be in regards to the photography. It’s difficult to fully appreciate your MOC because the background is so cluttered and distracting. Next time you post a MOC I recommend trying to pose it in front of a simple mono-tone backdrop. This will help focus all of the viewer’s attention on the creation itself.

Thanks! I tried to show the Heroes Panrahk in the background for anyone who didn’t know about it, I must admit my desk is petty messy though. I will try to take better pictures for my next MOC. I am currently working on my very own Rahkshi including all the features of my Panrahk but also a custom colour scheme and posable fingers, he will be based around the shadow Kraata.
Great idea! Next time I recommend just embedding an image of your source material directly into the topic. It’s easier, simpler and cleaner.
Great! I recommend reading through this topic to get some tips.
Oooh, sounds awesome!
I doubt many people in the Bionicle fandom don’t know about the masterpiece that is Bionicle Heroes
Great thinking, I should have made a combination of an image taken of my Panrahk and an image showing the game one next to it. I sadly didn’t think of this at the time.
Thanks for the link! I don’t have a professional setup here but I will try my best!
Here is a little sneak peak that I took after working on it and letting it dry after still unfinished colouring, the head on the stand will be the head it will use when finished.
Haha, very true!
Looking good! I’m really liking your parts usages. As for your pics, just be careful to evenly light your model and turn your camera’s flash off. I can’t tell you how many LEGO pics I’ve had ruined by the darn flash.
Ah man this is sick! There aren’t enough “replica MOCs” out there. This is thing is very well done. I’d love to see some JtO replicas, or ones of the old movies or games.
Piece abuse aside, I do have to say this looks very nice. Could you show us a shot of the back, so we can see the locking mechanism and the staff connection?
Thanks! I took them very late at night and sadly wasn’t able to turn lights on so other people could sleep so I quickly took two pictures with my phone.
Thanks! I agree. Replica mocks can be really cool at times. I would love to see a MoL Makuta Teridax.
Thanks! I sadly have no way of getting it to look like in the game without piece abuse or custom pieces as the game is full of custom pieces, I don’t have a 3D printer so cutting is really my only option. I keep alot of Rahkshi pieces around, I have all of them rebuilt (Panrahk and Vorahk are the only ones with custom pieces) except Kurahk, I am missing his white back piece and his head.
As for the locking mechanism and staff connection:
The staff connects to the lego stud connection.
Here is some more progress on the Rahkshi:
Thinking of naming it Zerahk.
Spell it Xerahk just to bother people with the x.
I actually already made a topic on it here: Zerahk (Rahkshi MOC)
