My Third entry to the brickonicle contest
NEW FROM LEGO BIONICLE
"A shadow threatens the heart of Metru-Nui and Toa Lhikan cannot defeat the Dark Hunters alone, it is time to create new legends, to create new Toa."
Name: Great Temple Of Metru Nui
Piece count: 904
Minifigures: 9 (7 Toa plus 2 Dark Hunters)
- Detachable mask, Toa stone and Toa armour
- Mask and weapon storage on suva
- Launch-able statue
- Bridge launch platform
Lhikan collects the Toa stones
"The Last Toa!"
Lhikan looks cornered! Or is he?
"Water is for whimmmmps" - Lhikan, probably
The chosen matoran approach the Great Suva
Place the stones into the slots
Open the storage to get the great Toa masks of power
Store the new Toa's weapons in the suva
(Yeah I know that Onewa and Vakama's weapons don't fit but if lego were to make this, I'm sure the parts would be able to fit)
Close up on Lhikan's board
(again the weapons need to be official pieces that are designed specifically for this)
All the minifigs in their tiny glory
This is my most expensive entry so far, few functions but I wanted to go for minifigures and set design. The suva was a ridiculous challenge to design, I wanted to implement the feature that it raises and have the weapons concealed in the floor but that didn't work with the mask storage and the storage was much easier and smaller to construct. Nidhiki was a fun build, I've seen some similar build on the boards but I wanted him smaller and more to scale with my Toa designs. The Toa all do have the same mask, yes I know, but I looked at other helmets and they don't work with the armour and I need that armour on them. Krekka was... Well, he's the Krekka of minifigs.
As always, comments and criticism are always welcome but please don't criticise and issue if I've explained it in the description (like the masks).
Good luck to the rest of the rest of you guys
