Matoran Transport Attack
The Toa Metru are trying to save the matoran, but Nidhiki is attacking the matoran transport! Vakama and Nuju work to protect the transport so they can get all the matoran pods to safety!
Here's my entry. I wanted to incorporate the original canister types in a way that made sense for a modern lego set. Here it is used as the main storage section on a transport vehicle. This canister would not likely be the main container for the set, but rather be a storage option after the box is thrown away.
The label would be on the inside of the canister instead of the outside, and it would also be reversible to show a more fitting print to go with the scene. In this case, it is a riveted paneling texture.
My skills with photo editing are also very minimal, so instead I made a diorama for the main photo to look more professional.
Without the Landscape Background.
The Transport also looks good without the canister on it.
A Brick Built Nidhiki
Here are the minifigs of the toa.
The canister is easily put on, and a rubber banded lever keeps it in place well.
The pieces just barely all fit in there when it is disassembled. The canister would have to be slightly larger to include the instructions.
I wish I had the talent to do better for the label and background, but the set was very fun to build. I'l probably do another set with the same basic concept.
