Extra stuffs

So, this is actually my first posting on the boards! I've been around for about a year, liking and commenting here and there, but once I saw the Brickonicle contest I knew I had to join in.

Anyway, here are some molds that would probably need to be created:

  • Pohatu's Kakama (in reddish brown)
  • Preferably a fully molded body piece for Pohatu (the neck is the ugliest part right now)
  • Maybe new claws for the Nui-Jaga, or a new stinger mold.

If I had the time to go back and fix a few things up I'd probably try and make the pillar-breaking function more interesting, plus maybe redesign Pohatu's Catapult thing.

Besides Pohatu's neck, though, I am quite happy with how the Nui-Jaga and Pohatu turned out.

Also, not sure whether the price should be at $25.00 or only $20.00...

Thanks for viewing, hope you enjoyed. :slight_smile:

Yeah, on second thought I should have included him but too late now. :confused:

I like that you mimicked Pohatu's stature.

Thanks!

@Jack_Frost
Thanks! Yeah, when I was building the Nui-Jaga I didn't want too much purple/magenta, as the original set only had highlights, but there's enough there to accent the black.

@Xevins
Thanks! (why do I keep repeating myself)

It took a few attempts to find a way to fit it all together, but once I started using the upside-down battle droid body it all seemed to fall into place.

A bit expensive for $25, as it's more of a $20 set. That being said, I love the look of this. I like the builds, such as the catapult and best, and the figures are on-point.

A tad too expensive for what it is? Sounds like a LEGO set to me, then.

Ykyabfw the fast-paced techno beat with the Indian instrumentals started playing in your head when you saw this :stuck_out_tongue:

Yeah, I think I should have added Takua or a Po-Matoran to the build so that you don't just get one minifig; either that or bump the price down to $20.00

Yet another scene I love seeing. The Pohatu minifig is designed effectively, with much regard for his original form. The Nui Jaga also looks nice and the way you implemented the boulder firing with a catapult is creative.

@Stoax Thanks! I was concerned that the catapult might be a bit... jarring. I tried designing a machine that would make it look as though pohatu was kicking them (with one of the old springy basketball stands) but overall I think the catapult is quite a bit more effective function-wise.

really cool. Also I love the way you made Pohatu. I might use that method for some of my robot builds (Not for BRICKONICLE. I'm not entering the competition)
