Here is my new self-MOC, Boxxer.
Cast in the name of Mata-nui, Ye not Guilty
Once a construction worker on Bara Magna, he was viciously attacked by the sand tribe, losing both his arms and left for dead. He was found by a traveling merchant who took him to the nearest village and sold him, to be used in gladiatorial combat. He was fitted with a pair of basic prosthetic arms, which he has since upgraded into the quake gauntlets he wears today. These can also be switched for a pair of drills, allowing him to create sandstorms.
After many years fighting, he won his freedom and returned to the wilds of Bara Magna, vowing to use his new skills to protect others from the Sand Tribe.
I'll pierce the heavens with my drill
Generally he keeps his own council, but he will step up to any injustice he sees. He feels better in solitude and has a deep connection to animals and nature.
Powers and abilities
His prosthetic arms have the ability to store kinetic energy in the large pistons and channel it towards his fists whilst in combat, creating a pressure wave. When his drills are attached, he can create sandstorms, allowing him to evade his attackers.
Fourth wall breaker
It's been a Long time since I've posted any MOCs, I've been suffering from serious moc-block. I've finally gotten over it and have been working on this guy for a couple of months on and off. This is about the 5th iteration of the build, so much so, this version and the first version only share one piece, the mask. In terms of back story, it's basically the film Gladiator, I'm not really one for storytelling, but I like to give the things I build some kind of meaning.
I'm not really sure where to go with the character, wether to world build around him or insert him into the bionicle story somehow.
As always, C&C is very welcome.
All negative comments will be ignored /s
