Join to comment
 Group admin 
It is time to reveal the BCBS challenge for August! Last month's winner, Vorred 03, hath proclaimed what it is(eth)!

"Challenge Build #4: Matoran Strike!
The ones who compete will have to create a Matoran who is ready for fighting (example: heavy armor, many weapons), and is about 12cm high (not have to be exactly that size, but I don't want to see some Toa-sized Matoran)."

You know the drill: post by the 14th, vote by the 21st! Whatcha' waiting for? Get MOCing!

Matoran? Battle type matoran? Crud... Any advice anyone? I suck at matoran, as evidenced by what few I have built... now that I think about it, and this is just a random question, but would an Etherian count? You know, one of these things, http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/291141. Just thinking out loud.

I like this because no one has an advantage. In other things people who have loads of pieces can build enormous mocs. However, a Matoran is judged solely off skill and design. :)

17cm is pretty tall for a Matoran. Try to make something smaller, if you can't at all, post your MoC.

Hey Topsy, Sorry about that. We've been traveling and didn't have time to send out the thanks for voting emails. Yes we got them. DG left reminders for those who needed to vote. Will tabulate and hopefully announce the winner tomorrow. This was a really fun round and I expect a lot of votes to go around to a lot of MOCs. Thanks to all for participating. Sorry, I couldn't post the last two months. The Bio-cup has consumed a lot of my MOCing energy (and parts!) I'll be back in soon! Look for my titan entry in about a week. I'm pretty excited about it! Let's just say, it's no M.O. Mini!
