Hi, Sokoda here and after quite some time I’m back with another Set concept. Like many others I did a set for the civil war.
As always, I added masks on the minifigures to show how they would look with these pieces. This time I also drew a background image for the set, please tell me if you like it and if I should do this more often.
This new Set has 929 pieces (including the 5 masks)
So here is the set:
The new set contains the Mangaian wall, which is made of two segments, an Ice-Burnak with a sledge, a Ballista, that can be stored in the Wall, as well as the Minifigures: Tahu, Kopaka, two mangaian guards and tow ihuhan warriors.
1. The Mangian Wall
The Mangaian Wall is made of two segmants, that can be taken appart to create two small walls. Combined they form one long wall. For the style and arcitecture, I tried to stick as close as possible to the style of my Mangai Defense Tower. You will later see why.
The two wall-segments can also be combined to form a thicker wall, that is not open on the back
The entire Wall can be opened or taken apart on different sides
The first Wall-Segment
The first wall segment has a roof, two gates that can be opened and a Zamor launcher inside of it. The interior is decorated with light stones and some spears.
The second Wall-Segment
The second wall-segment is decorated with some red banners and contains a tresure chest, as well as the Ballista. It is decorated with spears, swords an some torches.

2. The Ice-Burnak with Sledge
Because Rahi are greate and I wanted to do a bit of conflict in the box, I added a Rahi for the Ihuans. It’s design is inspired by the G1 Iche-Burnak.
With this Rahi I really tried to make it look very bio-mechanical, because I think the classic Bionicle aesthetics of bio-mechanical beings in the nature is a great style that G1 had, which I think sould be contained.
The sledge is monstly made outof a hero-factory armor-piece.It has a fiering crossbow, a classig MNOG-style red flag and the Ko-Metru Disk as a decoration.
The Burnak is a bit of a spin on the G1-Burnak design.
(By detaching the G2-pistin armor you can place a Minifigure on the Burnaks back.
3. The Minifigures
I included Tahu and Kopaka, because some people pointed out, that it would make a set more desirable, to have multiple Toa, because they are the main charakters.
The Mangai Guards follow the same design-concept as all my matorans. I tried to make them look a bit battle damaged and used colers like black and grey, so Tahu would stand out in an army of Mangaian Guards.
For the design of the Ihuan Warriors, I added some cloth to their design, because I imagine they come from a very cold region.
4.Connection with Mangai Defende Tower
The Mangai Wall can of cause be connected to the Mangai Defense Tower (as @DarkHenrik alredy suggested). It can be attached to form multiple different Fortress like structures. Here are two examples:
(By using the small flaps on the side of the Wall you can make the two buildings look like they are one.)
I hope you enjoy my new set concept and I’d be happy to hear your oppinins
