In-Dept Detail/Info

The Elephant:
Ok, one thing that sticks out from this entire set is this:

I'm aware that the contest prohibit uncanny characters, so I have to make this a doll strapped with explosive to bypass the rules.


ok, now thats out of the way...
THIERS NOTING YOU CAN DO

Set Base:
The set is based around 2006 Ignition Trilogy / Voya Nui Saga and a mixture of the commercial/promo, to not get confused with Piraka Stronghold, I must remove certain feature and replace it with "uncanny" stuff to avoid making this looking like a "redesign".

Set Info:

  • Price: $79.99 USD / 79.99€ / £69.99

  • Ages: 8-16

  • Pieces: 1011 (not including extra ammo's)

  • Minifigs: 6

Obvious New Molds Needed:

  • New body (while the figures used exist, I would more prefer legs swinging back and foward)

  • Printing

  • Weapon for all

  • etc.

Design:

  • First off, I don't know why I picked Reidak face for the front gate

  • I tried to mimic the Toa/Piraka weapons form their official set/story and the Piraka were executed poorly

Scraped:

  • Like I mention earlier, some stuff were removed to avoid relation with the official sets (and I don't want to make another $120+ set)

  • I also planned to only have all 6 Piraka rather than Toa, but stuff got out of hand

Price:

  • The only reason why the piece-count goes under .10 per-piece is due to the lack of specialized pieces needed and the amount of small sized brick usage.

Minor-Post Change:

  • After finishing rendering all (except for one), some stuff felt alittle off, so I change some minor stuff.

Logic:

  • Yes, im aware that the battle from the Toa Inika and Piraka first started from the Stronghold, but you can try to imagine this is else-were

  • Few pieces needed to be removed to fuse the 2 building

  • Some design were off-putting, especially the mirror and cage (probably the reason why I put Hakann and Zaktan)

  • i was drunk

  • LDD connection is ###, while the rules mention only legal connection is available; some of those legal connection does not process correctly in the program; forcing the entire set to be different from what I interpreted to be-


and yes, the bull does work:

I love all the references to the individual Piraka commercials.

Yo yo, Piraka.
Jokes aside, this is pretty cool. It reminds me of the Piraka rap, but it has the play set feel from 2005-2007.

Something about this one just makes me think "fun" and that's pretty cool. Nice work!

Love how many different things are incorporated in this. Shame the bull among other things isn't connected to the main gate.

Ha! Just yesterday I said that someone needed to make a Reidak rodeo thing, and look what we have here.
This is perfect, absolutely perfect.
Also is that good guy with TNT attached to him in the catapult?

I'm kinda surprised that so far this is the only entry (to my knowledge) that actually uses the mini figure versions of the toa/piraka

The only thing this set needed to reach perfection was Hakann’s shark cage from his individual commercial. But oh well, at least it has that timebomb which also counts a reference.
