UPDATE! 9/17/21 Icarax - The Definitive Edition

(UPDATE: 09/17/2021 Hey! So a second version of this mask is now finished and available and I ordered one and will share what it looks like when it arrives!) It’s been a long time, but I wanted to share with you something I have been working on for over a year now and it is finally complete and all done and that is and was creating a Great Mask of Scavenging that not only looked better to me but also could make use in a story sense, as you are all aware Makuta can change at will their respective Kanohi as we have seen with Antroz and vamprah and others, so I did the design and 2D artwork and a great mask maker did the 3D modeling and created a shapeshifted Great Mask Of Scavenging/Vulture for Icarax! (Just PM me and I will send you the link to get one) And i also updated my Icarax a little bit, that I will share with you all very soon and will post a “how to” for the updates and the parts you will need, the point of the update was actually to save on extremely expensive and rare parts for a more economical build in certain places in case you ever encounter a broken part down the road and due to the high cost of some of the parts I built Icarax with I thought it would be a good idea as well as some of the updates allow for better articulation particularly in the hands and head/neck region, so anyway I will share that all with you guys soon, until then I put up some photos in a cinematic lighting but will reveal the full thing and in detail very soon I promise, I just need to get a new light and background. This is my version of Makuta Icarax, This character has been redesigned to encompass what I wanted to see in him but I also wanted him close to the original, he has a shield,sword,claw and interchangeable wings, a collapsed pair and a full pair, I have the collapsed pair on the red one right now, there is also an all-new black armored version in this showcase, based on the description in the book Bionicle Legends 9 on page 96 “Instead, the powerful, black-armored warrior was sitting on the ebony throne normally reserved for Teridax, Makuta of Metru Nui-and he was wearing Teridax’s Mask of Shadows!” He is the exact height as the original and made up of 435 parts without weapons and 511 parts with them. He comes with joints that are unhindered and can achieve every pose allowed with ball joints, the original had a rotating blade, now his shield, it has a hinge and rotation. The claw which used to be his left hand and now an attachment is able to unfold, open and close and collapse back on itself and you can bring just one half of the claw down to use as a wristblade. The wings have full range articulation. Brickshelf gallery: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=563276 has more photos! Let me know what you think!

That is a Makuta, more Makuta-y than any Makuta to have Makuta’d.

Really digging this. The hands are so clutch. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them built that way before. And the way the spread wings look in the last few pics is freakin incredible.

Thank you! I will take a close up of the hands so you can see them soon. It took a long time to come up with those hands haha. I tried traditional hands like Hydraxon’s hands but I finally came up with these and they can hold his weapon without an axle or pin connection which is nice for a more realistic grip.

I would love to get a closer look at them. Please @ me when you post them so I can be sure to check ‘em out.

I’m working on a M.O.C that’s quite a bit like this, except bigger and not as good

The head seems to be posed awkwardly in a lot of the pictures, and makes it seem too tall and disproportional to the body. Could perhaps angle the mask some so it isn’t almost vertical?

9.5/10 Menacing as this evil Makuta should be
