Now that’s something I don’t get everyday. Thanks man. Cinnamon rolls are the best.

Thanks for the in-depth comment. Dang, I don’t understand how I never caught the torso problem. Oh well. :stuck_out_tongue: Yeah, the Bohrok eyes aren’t ideal. Got any idea of other silver parts I could use?

You managed to shatter a TECHNIC/BIONICLE MOC? How? :stuck_out_tongue:

Indeed. #MortalKombat

Sorry, what makes sense for the “07 underwater apparatus”? I don’t follow.

Good to see you back around the Boards man!

This is incredible. I never noticed how stubby the torso was until people started pointing it out. Which is bizarre, 'cuz I’m normally hyper-critical of everything I build.

I’d certainly hope so. :wink:

Thanks a ton everyone! :smiley:

cowers in shame…


He was made out lime green 2007 Bionicle pieces, It’s amazing he didn’t shatter sooner.

I’m not sure if I really like the silver

but other than that I love him

Me neither. It works a lot better on my Ahkmou MOC. I’ll try to order a second white Metru shoulder pad sometime soon to make Matoro into a more traditional Metru-build.

I just realized that Ahkmou’s left leg is askew in this pic. That’s gonna drive me up the wall from now on… :angry:


That is easy to take care of, go to a large open field, were there are no walls to drive up.


@legomaster1378 you should give this MOC one of those flagpoles that matoro uses in MNOG to mark where he’s traveled in the drifts. the red flag on a stick, if you know what im trying to refer to. you could attach it to the open hole where the gear is supposed to go. Once again, another great moc! personally i dont like sand blue, and thats my only real issue with the moc, but thats more of a personal preference thing, and you didnt have much of a choice but to make it sand blue, so im looking past my own pickyness. he definitely needs a red flag just to give him a neat little callback.

I’d say he needs more sand blue but there aren’t many parts in that color so he’s pretty much flawless!

Man, the Metru build used to be absolute fave as a kid. Nice colours!


Really? I actually think that gave him that much more character in the picture!

With his mask being tilted slightly to the right… Wel… That may be a problem! :stuck_out_tongue:

How so? :stuck_out_tongue:

… now I can’t unsee that. Grrrrrrrr…

Thanks man! That means a lot coming from you. :slight_smile:


I got to admit this looks great!
Really like what you did to the torso.

I love the way he looks and I can’t wait to see the rest of the team

Thanks. Though it’s the same technique I used on my Toa Ahkmou MOC. It’s simply a blend of the torso techniques used on Norik and Iruni.

Thanks! Though I’m gonna have a really hard time building the rest of the Inika as Metru-builds. Unlike my Metru-toran Toa project, parts simply don’t exist in the colours I’ll need for figures like Kongu and Hewkii.


Simply effective build that is undeniably the same character as Matoran Matoro. This is what I would of like to see in the Inika series. Great MOC!

Thanks man! I dunno, I kinda like the Inika’s aesthetic. I prefer to think of this guy as what Matoro would have looked like had his Toa transformation not been caused by a bolt of physics-defying lightning from a zombie-birthing ball of gas. :stuck_out_tongue:

Excellent! I really like the use of the sand blue parts here, and it’s the first time I think I’ve seen a revamp like this. Keep going! :slight_smile:

Thanks man! Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the sand-blue kaukau being used on a MOC before which is a shame it’s such a sweet piece. I’m definitely gonna try to track down the parts I need for Jaller and Hahli. Kongu and Hewki are gonna be problematic though…
