This is my entry for the Brickonicle contest, set no. 55555: Manas Attack. It displays a less than canonical fight between a Manas Crab, Chirox, Onua, and Nuparu.

Set Info:
Price: $24.99 USD, 24.99€, £19.99
Pieces: 288 (not including extra springloaded missile/studs)
Minifigs: 3
Ages: 8-14


Nuparu’s Driller Beetle
Designed by the Matoran Nuparu to allow Onu-Koro miners to pass through the mines without getting entirely noticed by the wild rahi that roams its shafts, the Driller Beetle can hold its own against a beast as powerful as the Manas Crab!

The small vehicle holds two small Zamor launchers on its sides as well as a drill to fight through the durable stone walls of Onu-Wahi.


The Manas Crab
The Manas Crab is the most feared rahi in the mines of Onu-Koro. Raised by the villainous creatures known as the Makuta, this dangerous crustacean packs a powerful punch!

The Manas has the ability to launch a powerful blast, though it temporarily blinds the creature. The rahi can also hold its master on its back.


Onu-Koro Mines
The mines of Onu-Koro are filled with precious metals and delicate gems! The Matoran spend their days digging through the formidable stone entity, finding mountains and mountains of resources everyday!

This specific portion of the mine can be broken down. Is it destroyed in an attempt to crush the Manas and leave it immobile or to lung a piece at Toa Onua and stop his impactful blows?


Minifigures
Onua- The mighty Toa of Earth and sworn protector of the Matoran
Nuparu- The intelligent and quirky Onu-Matoran who seems to have a unique way of getting things done
Chirox- The evil and winged Makuta who flies through the mines of Onu-Koro to terrorize the powerless Matoran

  • Pakari (Black/Orange)
  • Shelek (Black)
  • A new armor piece for Onua (Silver)

Criticism is more than welcomed!

I very like the Mana but shooting it eye out (probably suppose to be laser-eyes) is awkward.

Cool build, but I can smell the gimmickiness from here.
The Manas crab is my favourite, especially because of how well integrated the missiles are.

0/10 no gif showing you build the driller. Much disappointment.

Nah. This is amazing Plural. Well built and super creative. The Manas is my favorite part.
