So I made this MOC: http://board.ttvpodcast.com/t/warrius-2-0/4909?u=chaotictempleknight and introduced the concept of the Primal Fire element in my version of the bionicle universe. Warrius discovered a Sacred Axe that was imbued with the power of Primal Fire. But what gave him the POWAAAAAAAAAR! in the first place? Well in this universe, a group of entities called the primal spirits observe the matoran universe. It's unknown what their goals are, but they occasionally imbue certain matoran with the primal elements through sacred weapons.
And what are the Primal elements exactly? They are basically more advanced versions of their normal counter parts. They grant the matoran turned primal warriors abilities you wouldn't normally see in a toa. For instance, Warrius' Primal Fire allows him to go into a fire based berserk mode.
So enough of this explanation. You guys want to see the MOCs, this is the Lego creations thread after all.
I made 3 other primal warriors.
Let's start with my current favorite Primal Warrior: Blixt, Primal Warrior of Lightning
Good lord I love this MOC. Here is a close up of the body by the way:
Yes, it is similar Warrius, but less bulky. Blixt is a female Primal Warrior after all. And yes, I know there is some asymmetry. I couldn't find certain parts in my collection and had to settle with the next best thing
And how about that mask? Well here is some of Blixt's back story: When Blixt was a matoran, she was a Ga matoran apprenticing to be a sailor under another Ga-matoan who wore a metru blue Kaukau. But an accident mortally wounded Blixt's teacher. Her teacher asked Blixt to take her Kaukau and where it in her memory. Now let's fast forward to when she became a primal warrior. Blixt was exploring a previously undiscovered cave when she found a strange staff. She touched the staff and Primal lighting flooded into her body and turned her into the primal warrior of lighting. The lightning powered up her Kaukau to it's nuva state, but it burnt the mask and turned it black. Now it can only help channel lightning. Upon becoming a primal warrior, she was instructed by the primal spirit of lightning to go to an island (that is called primal island by the residents) in the southern islands and help lead the community on the island.
little trivia for all of you: Blixt is Swedish for Flash. Or at least it should be. I used Google translate, but I noticed it only has trouble with Oriental languages and Swedish is not Oriental.
Well that was long. On to the next Primal Warrior: Averrio, Primal Warrior of Air
Blind in one eye and has a low tolerance for shenanigans, not much is known about Averrio. He has been on primal island for a very long time. It's unknown what he did as a matoran or if he even was a matoran to begin with.
So originally I had a glider contraption on him, but it wasn't working out to well. He is blind in one eye, that is why he has a white eye. And in regards to the legs and color scheme... I am so low on parts right now it's not funny.
Anyways, let's move onto Vardun, Primal Warrior of Ice
Like Averrio, not much is known about Vardun. He secludes himself on the icy mountain of primal island.
I really like how the shield turned out. I threw some parts together and got a functional shield. I feel as though I was subconsciously influenced by dark souls as I was playing it a lot at the time of making these MOCs. And yes, those are Knight's Kingdom Parts. I find that with the right parts, Knight's kingdom parts go perfectly with Bionicle parts.
Also here is the edited version of Warrius, Primal Warrior of Fire:
As you can probably tell, there will be a story for all of these MOCs. Hopefully I'll get working on that more soon. I've got it started, but it is not ready yet.
I have read this over multiple times, but I have missed an error. Please let me know if you see any vocabulary, grammatical, or punctuation errors and I will fix them Asap.
