I’m going to host a building contest to make a Toa Nui for 2015. This topic is to discuses the rules and iron out any bugs.
After making several Toa Nui(s) using the 2001 Toa I wanted to see a Toa Nui made out of the 2015 Toa (the Okoto Toa Nui if you will). For any who do not know, the Toa Nui is a fusion of all six Toa, whereas the Toa Kaitas are a fusion of three Toa. The Toa Nui has never made a canon appearance, so there have been many attempts by fans to create one.
This competition will be to create an Okoto Toa Nui using the Toa sets from 2015. I’ve seen plenty of MOCs of Akamai and Wairuha for 2015, so now it’s time to fuse all six Toa Okoto.
1 - Must use pieces from all six Toa Okoto.
2 - You do not have to use ALL the pieces from ALL the sets. (Not even the 2001 Toa Kaitas do that. Also, many of the sets have the same pieces with different colors. Ex: Tahu’s swords and Kopaka’s shield)
3 - The winner of this competition must upload Building instructions for their MOC in order to get the prize so that all may benefit from his/her awesomeness. (Yes there will be a prize)
Rules up for discussion:
Should there be a restricted piece count? That means the MOCs will be limited to the pieces, and piece counts, obtained from one complete set of the Toa Okoto. No extra pieces.
Can pieces from the Protectors be used? (Namely, the pieces the Toa get from the Protectors in the combo models.)
How long should this contest last? (Currently, I’m posting July 31st as the ending date.)
4 - Any suggestion for judges? (Currently I’m the only definite judge.)
Can the trans-gold mask from the summer wave be used?
First, remember that this contest is mainly for fun, but yes there will be a prize. The prize will be a Nuva Cube misprint. (And we know how Bionicle fans love misprints.) In my “Nuva Cube (3D printing)” I had several misprints created from the 3D Printer; one of them will be the prize. (Note: These misprints are warped by nature in some way. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.)
This will be the prize:
I found I could compensate the flaw by balancing it on one corner, which also gives it a really cool look.
