Hello, everybody! I’m JonBlueFire, and this is my first entry to TTV’s Brickonicle Contest!
The remnants of the Iron Tribe are attacking Bara Magna! Only the valiant glatorian, Kiina and Ackar, dare to stand in their way! Armed with thronax launchers and their weapon of choice, will our heroes prevail over the greed of Sahmad and Telluris - the last remaining members of the Iron tribe - and thier dreadful two headed Spikit? YOU decide in the all new Iron Tribe Attack set from Lego Bionicle. Each set sold separately. Even though this is only one
#Iron Tribe Attack
194 pieces (including 6 extra studs for stud/‘thornax’ launchers)
Articulation: The Spikit has a rotation turret on it’s back, which can seat one figure. The actual thronax launcher has added articulation.
It also contains a plethora of mixel joints (Three in each front leg, Two in each back leg, One in each head, and Three in the tale for a total of 15 Joints! Not to mention Three claws on each foot!)
Figures: This set features Kiina, Ackar, and Telluris as glatorian; and Sahmad as an agori. Four in total.
Other Notes: I had quite the ride, so to speak, when building this MOC! I started it off as a battle pack as sorts with figures different, except one, than is shown. When the price got past $15.00, however, I figured I’d better do something else, so this came into being!
I’d definitely say that the most challenging part had to be the Spikit heads, which honestly would have worked a lot better if LDD had blocked a piece from entering a slot, where another brick would work!
The figures were fun to build, but the helmets were a bit tricky, especially Kiina’s! I did the best with what I had, though.
I took some creative liberties with the Spikit, ditching the gunmetal and chariot altogether, to allow for more compact play. (plus, I accidentally made the Spikit bigger than what it’s supposed to be anyways!)
The whole set is essentially supposed to replicate a scene from the Bionicle Comic: Valley of Fear.
Please forgive my terrible digital art skills on the face prints of the figures!
So yeah, that’s about it! (I’ll post more pictures if people want)
How do you all think I did? Do you like the set/MOC? Dislike it? Tell me your thoughts below, as I value comments and constructive criticism very highly!
Thank you in advance!
