Hi, Sokoda here. It took me a while but I’m back with a new G3 Set concept. The new one is for the region of Mangai. As always I want to say that I added the Masks on the rendered images to show how they would look with new mask-pieces. It’s not perfect, but I think it gets the look across.
The set has 865 pieces (including the 4 masks)
The new set contains a Defnse Tower of the Mangaián Guard, A little scenery of the Mangai landscape, that can be attached to the tower, And a mutated flying Rahi (I call him Nirahk^^) ant the Minigigures Tahu, Jaller, two Mangai-Guards and Turahk.
1. The Defense Tower
The Defense tower has three Levels and has a very angeled look.
The landscapesection of the Tower can be removed and the tower can be opened on multiple sides to fige access to the different rooms of the tower.
By opening the tower completely you have a different structure and multiple Towerd can be connected using a technic pin.
The tower has two stud-shooter turrets, that can be turned around and fired bu tuning a gear.
The entrance area of the tower is decorated with weapons and shields on the walls.
The planning room features a strategic map of Mangai and weapons and armor as decoration.
The Guards quater has a bed, a table with a map of the island of Artaka, some lightstones and a poster (Barraki easter egg here, my idear is that the story about them is like a ghost-tale, made this before the Barraki-pitch controversy)
On the top of the tower there is a watchpost with a good view to detect attackers.
2. The Scenery
As always I included a little scenery with a little volcano, a burnt tree and as always a sign.
3. Mutated Rahi (Nirahk)
This set contains a Rahi which is Turahks pet. The idea was sent to me by @DarkHenrik and I thaught it would be cool for Turahk to ride a Rahi, because i imagine him more of a person who is more interested in the old legends than technology. I call this creature Nirahk as a mix of Nivawk (from G1) and Rahkshi.
5. The Minifigures
Turahks design is similar to the other Rahkshi, but I gave him a different eye coler to show his higher position among them.
The design of the Mangai Guards follows the same system as all of my Matoran, but I used a lot of black, to make them look less special, than the more important Matoran.
Jallers Design took me quite a while^^, I added a lot of gold to show that he is a very powerful person in the Mangaian society and added a lot of G1 references in his decals.
This image shows the Matoran eqquipt with the weapons and armor in the tower.
Tahus design is as close to his official design as i could get and i gave him a fire sword.
I hope you like my new set
