Very nice. I’m loving these Brickonicle entries. My favorite part would be the Nui Rama, though I think its very out of scale compared to the Goko Bird.

around 36 dollars us

The Nui Rama just sells the entire thing for me.

This is pretty dope. Maybe could use a bit of polish visually in a couple of places, but this is one of my favourite entries so far. Really like how the wings can fold up.

@MaximusPrime, @Radiation-7901, @Leoxandar, @BricksOfAwesome Thank you all! The Nui-Rama was the first thing I built. The set was originally going to be a Le-Koro hut and the Nui-Rama attacking it, but I realized an another Rahi would be more interesting.

@Toby_Echozap Thank you! The Nui-Rama is actuallu really simple! It’s a black 2x4 brick with these on the side: http://brickset.com/parts/4617067 and these: http://brickset.com/parts/6092592 + some plates on top.
The tail? uses this: http://brickset.com/parts/4211803 and this: http://brickset.com/parts/4144502.
Then the arms are made using these: http://brickset.com/parts/4569733 and these: http://brickset.com/parts/4535739
Lastly, the head uses these: http://brickset.com/parts/4212446, http://brickset.com/parts/4178398 and this: http://brickset.com/parts/4213567.
I think you can figure out the rest pretty easily.

@MaximusPrime I could, but I think it’s against the rules of the contest to change the entry.
@cabbieboy Thank you! At first I had a lot of different designs for the figures, like small brick-built figures and those weird figures from the old Bionicle system sets, but then I thought about it and realized the normal minifigures work the best.

Good Lord that Gukko is humongous. I LOVE IT! Really fits into what a system Bionicle set would be like, based off of my experiences with system sets

It does kind of fit with system in the very late 90s/early 2000s though…

Used Star Wars because it was the first thing that jumped to mind.

I’d pay money for this.
Good job using that KK helmet for Lewa’s Miru.

One issue I have with the Gukko bird is the saddle color, the contrast of the blocky shape look like the Matorans cut a hole on the bird top lump.
Outside from that and lacking play-feature, the front portion of the Gukko Bird is decent, Nui-Rama build is good, and the small tree is nice addition.

@Psychic, @HewksDKowlihad, @Square Thank you all! Thank you all! I know the saddle could be better, but it is what it is.

That Nui Rama is FANTASTIC!

@Alex_Twenty_Two Thank you for the compliments!

It kinda looks like somebody fed that gukko a little too much but other than that this looks amazing (Is the price a bit overkill?)
