My inspiration for this one came from me getting skull grinder v Ekimu and Skull Scorpio and being kinda disappointed with both of the sets. I don’t want to sound ungrateful but… you’ve seen them both. So I decided to make a two headed flame machine! I thought the mask and Chesapeake for skull grinder were both kinda steampunk style so I tried to make it steampunk but it really didn’t work.
Posability: Articulation in the ankles is a tiny bit limited due to the two ball joints and a bar-thingy being there but apart from that it has three in the legs( has extra support on the things and so side to side on the knees) three in each arm, checks three in the neck and the shoulders are slightly configurable to give him her an easier posing experience.
Special features: Him her has 6 weapons; one magma cleaver, a gold-hot sword, a magma spear, a scorpion-tail axe, an obsidian multi tool and a demon shield.In addition he her has two holders on his her thighs to hold two weapons but has to hold the other four.
His her shoulders use the new bionicle 2016 torso skeleton pieces as shoulders so it works in exact same way except horizontally.
The masks are both made up of two masks, one golden and one skull. The pair’s( Ekimu and Scorpio and Makuta and Grinder) need to stay on each head and can’t be mixed because of the crown on Ekimu’s gets in the way of The other two masks but each none can be swapped to either give them some serious power or make them look different. In my opinion all the combinations look good with the exception of scorpio on top and Ekimu on the bottom because the eyes are too obvious but I made a Velcro cape to cover that up and now it looks awesome.
The cape is pretty small but it’s supposed to be used as a face mask not on their back.
Story: So this is a deceased Toa mixed with a skull warrior. The head with the silver horns is a boy and it’s name is Ignus, toa of magma and the one with the crown is Skarax… the skull warrior.
One day, Ignus was having fun, chatting with his best buddy, Razor (Toa of lightning) and then Tahu came along and ruined it. Tahu started to get jealous of Ignus because he was meant to use fire swords and cool lava stuff , not this new Toa! So he made a devious plot to make Ignus fall into lava. Although his plan was not to kill him, kill him he did…
Then skele-toa was exiled by Ekimu for being a threat to peaceful society even though he was not the one in the wrong. Because of this, Ignus became bitter toward the Toa and in the end he found Skarax, the skull warrior. She became friend with him but one day, makuta decided to fuse the two to make an almighty titan!!
Please forgive the use of white lift arms in the legs, I had no grey or black left, only white.
I am also aware of the use of blue pins and I apologize for them, I did try to ago did them where possible but in some places they were unavoidable.
Here are some of the earlier designers I had, concept builds if ya want.
