Brickonicle Contest - Rescue in Ko-Wahi

Name: Rescue in Ko-Wahi
Pieces: 170
Price: 17$



Minifigs: Takua, Kopaka Nuva, Jaller, Panrahk, Lerahk, Gurahk



(for some reason LDD has problems with colouring the feet properly sometimes...)





Originally I didn't plan to participate in this contest, but somehow I started tinkering around with LDD at some point, and well... I guess since I have something I might as well participate.
I also built figures for the other Rahkshi and Toa and started building Kini Nui - when/if I finish that I'll probably enter that too or at least post it (if the contest is already closed by then).

Ok, the actual "set" here: I feel like the Matoran and Kopaka look actually quite convincing which even surprises me. For the Rahkshi I originally planned not to use standard minifig bodies, but since articulation - especially in the hands - is important to me, I ended up with them this way.
And of course there's Pewku, too - it was quite fun building her and I think the outcome was worth the time.

Now, looking at this I actually have to admit that a proper System Bionicle line might actually work even for me. A PROPER System Bionicle line - one that doesn't include "Tahu's Fire Bike" or something such, which presently I sadly wouldn't expect from Lego...

This is great. I think it would make a cool little battle set. ^^

I really like the look of this, Pewku's design especially.

Pewku is my favorite Rahi model so I'd totally buy this.

Puku looks amazing.

Pewku wins the set, I like the rahkshi and I would to see them bigger but I understand the limitations of articulation. Plus if it was actually a set you could have custom legs or torsos such that they would be taller.

Pewku is pretty great all around, but having 6 figures in a under $20 set feels "un-real" from modern sets.

Yeah, you're right of course. It's kinda sad, though, since I usually care way more for the figures included than everything else...

The only thing that could make it better, would be a small piece of scenery; even a clump of snow and ice would do :snowflake:

Well, I can only agree on that. However, in order for it to satisfy me that would have to turn out not too basic... and currently I just don't have the time.

I made this here only an entry anyways, because the contest inspired me to at least try to build some characters - and well, I figured I might as well post something that came out of it then.

If I have enough time to invest into the contest I might be able to complete the original Kini Nui idea I had - with everything you see here + the other Rahkshi, Toa Nuva and Takanuva.

... I'd have to figure out how to easily count parts in LDD for that, too, though...

This looks very nice. Though Pewku is a bit too big.

I wanted the legs to look this specific way and the only way I could think of to achieve that determined the size.

I agree, though, that Pewku could be a little smaller.

Great Pewku.

This is a really solid set, thought realistically a build of that size would include three figures max. For the amount of figures in the set, it would make more sence to shrink Pewku and make it more like a battle-pack.
