I love making variants on official LEGO models. So when I came across silver Rahkshi backs and heads in a BIONICLE-filled tote, I immediately took it upon myself to try to build a silver variant of one of Makuta’s sons. Because of parts restrictions and a desire to emulate Miramax’s snake-esque stylization of the Rahkshi from Mask of Light I wound up making several adjustments to the original 2003 design.
Nice rahkshi moc you have here, I really like the flow of the design, really smooth. The only part that isnt too smooth are the arms. Part willing, if you could use some CCBS, or even system on the arms, I think it would help the smooth and reptilian aesthetic you have going on.
Yeah, I struggled with those. I originally kept them because I needed to keep the torso pieces (this isn’t supposed to be a complete revamp). However, I’ll be sure to experiment around a bit. Thanks a lot for the suggestion!
Thanks! The legs are the exact same length as the originals, if not a wee bit longer.
Thanks. I removed his gears if that’s what you’re asking. His arms can swivel maybe one centimeter to each side.
Thing is, the standard torso piece flows extremely well and has that nice smooth “snake belly” look. The BA torso is a great piece, but not one that I think would work on this MOC (the exposed rods and pin holes would be a problem too). That being said, I’ll try it out and see how it looks. Thanks for the critique.
