Greetings lovely people again! You have seen my self MOC in Matoran form, if you have checked that post already. Let's get started, introducing my self MOC again, Bythalis, The Storm Ninja!
Bythalis' first weapon, Quake Hammer. Later in his journey he replaces Quake Hammer to ninja tools.
Bythalis' main gear
The Mythical Lightning, Bythalis' alternative name.
Bythalis with his Bionic Arm.
A small history about Bythalis. In two years, I have created my self MOC in January 2015, same time when I built his Matoran form. Back then Bythalis was first known as Boltrax, which was his alternative name. A lot of you perhaps remember best about my self MOC that he had a "Four-Armed-Spinable-Machine" on back. However, over time I got a bit annoyed and start feeling that it didn't worked for his profile. He had that feature til (2.0) version, and then there was (2.5) version which was a pre-update for (3.0) version. Plus, my self MOC wasn't Boltrax anymore after (2.5), I got used to Bythalis name eventually.
At his third version ( https://twitter.com/bolt_tron/status/670869691422932992 ) I completely decided to leave back machine feature completely, but new ideas came, such as his bionic arm first introduced like last year at Autumn (Obviously that time it was influenced from MGSV Phantom Pain Venom snake character). The fourth version of Bythalis was updated at March ( https://instagram.com/p/BC3liOkrYUk/ ), however I count it as an unofficial update, which was just a very small accessory add on for Bythalis, which was inspired from MK Scorpion character.
That was about a long brief history (Ironic). So, on to (5.0) which might be my last version for my self MOC, at least I hope, or not, depends what I can improve on Bythalis (Perhaps double jointed elbow is on my list).
So, this new version of my self MOC is heavily redesigned to have more realistic anatomy appearence, unlike tank and squat looking Bythalis. He is mainly heavily influenced from MGS franchise Raiden character. I'm pretty sure that some of you may also give nickname for my self MOC like "Bionicle Genji" or something like that, due to his mask's eye hole design.
About Bythalis (5.0), the main goal was to give him flexible poses. This some how executed well, but there are things that was impossible. Like I mentioned earlier, he doesn't have double jointed elbows. Other poseability points I tried on my self MOC were butterfly joints, abdomen joint and waist joint. None of them worked well, because how I built my self MOC. However, I am still pleased how Bythalis looks currently.
Bythalis includes also some extra accessories, firstly his Quake Hammer. It is his first Tool/Weapon which he used it on "The Agony War" in his home city, in Spherus Magna, after Teridax's death (Note that I'm still working on Toa Bythalis' biography). The cape and hat and his Bionic Arm are yet in progress for my story.
Overall, let's say that Bythalis hops on the first place of my favourites. Before was Meratan, but I'm more pleased my self MOC's look and execution. Feel free to comment and give critique, they're always appreciated for future projects! This has been MrBT, and I'll see ya next time!
