So here it is, my BftGM entry: Tika o te Koura. I'd like to start this off by saying the only reason I'm posting this now, months after the contest, is because I'm bored . The idea behind this was to create something that melded the old BIONICLE with the new BIONICLE, while keeping the classic villain theme. By "classic villain theme" I mean a technic based build like the original Rahi.
Originally, I wanted that Skyblaster on his bow to retract into his chest, but after close to 4 hours experimenting with that I just couldn't do it. But I did like the idea of using those technic plates as a chestpiece, so I made the torso smaller, attached a gearbox (which, in retrospect, could have been a lot better) and made some semi-complicated legs to beef it up a little.
Build details (didn't bother for story because meh):
Name: Tika o te Koura (Maori for "Right of Gold" :P)
Height: About twice as tall as a Toa Mata
Build time: Close to 20 hours

So, what are your thoughts?
(apologies if the paragraphs don't read back very well, it's 10 PM at the time of this writing and I'm kinda out of it. And coffee. I'm out of that too :P)
