Brickonicle Entry: The mask makers forge

My entry is: The mask makers forge
Piece count: 2,732
Price: The exact price according to the rules is $273.20 but I think this set should be $180 or $200
Minifigures: 17
With the mask makers forge free from the control of evil the inhabitants of Okoto can enjoy it once again. Features include: The mask makers forge with a doll house style openings allowing you to look inside and play, the garden and the burnt tree stump (caused by Makuta in the comics), Kongus Kafe a good place to stop and eat (I know they don't eat, but I like to think they do), a small kolihi field (who doesn't love a game of kolihi?), all 6 toa with dual function weapons, and Ekimu's transformation chamber from JTO.

Here it is populated

Super blocky and relatively overpriced-
Theirs no way that a single hinge can hold an entire plate:

It's too MOC-like and blocky.

Lego would never make something THIS huge. It feels like a nice MOC but I doubt this would transfer well as a build able set. Too many baseplates, too many BURPs, the forge itself looks like it would topple from side to side, and it just lacks color.

It's a nice MOC but this wouldn't make a good set.

This is a pretty cool build but just could not work as a Lego set
yeah pretty much what @Chronicler said

This is awesome, but it's not very set like-well, pretty much what everyone else is saying.

The Build is slightly Blocky-ish but I think it does capture how the original concept artists presented the Forge. it's accurate IMO. To play the devil's advocate here I think this build COULD work as a set if the builder intended it to be some kind of UCS set. (which considering how popular Bionicle was I can see Lego making a UCS for the theme had G2 not bombed). in my opinion i find this MOC really good with a lot of Character put into the Forge and the world around it.
