Unfortunately Lego is ending the Bionicle line, as you may know. But there are so many things they did make yet, so many bionicles left without an image! So now is your chance to make one of those! Go on any Bionicle site as long as it's canon and choose a character that lego hasn't made, and build your own! It must be a real character, like Toa Helryx, not something you made up. More soon!

Contest Rules:

Rule #1: Your Character in question must be a canon character, NOT already made by Lego into a set(i.e. Toa Helryx)
Rule #2: Your entry must share the same name as the Character it is made out to be. (This may sound somewhat odd, but you’d be surprised)
Rule #3: Your entry must be visually accurate to the character it is portraying.
Rule #4: Your entry may be within any size limit, but the bigger the better is usually the case here.
Rule #5: Your entry must contain very few system bricks, the less the better! Depending on what you are making I may bend the rules a bit!
Rule # 6: Your entry must be a NEW moc, not uploaded before today.
Rule # 6˝: A clean background is recommended but not required.

Judging: I have a panel of 5 judges, as well as myself, which (if you can do basic math, which i hope you can) totals 6. We will be grading on:
• Build
• Accuracy
• Coordination (moc and picture)
“Prize”: The winner will receive two Agori/Stars of their choice, and possibly, if I'm not too lazy, something special!


What else...oh please post questions here: http://www.mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=6815&topicid=38874&message=comment_posted

And post the links to your entries in this thread: http://www.mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=6815&topicid=40639&message=comment_posted

Thank you!

I think I proposed this contest to Yuri prior to BD's bionicle tribute contest. The problem with this contest we realized is the difficulty of it to appeal to many. For one, not everyone likes researching for unpublished characters at Bionicle wiki. Like me, I don't really follow the story since I am more of a mocer than a collector. I checked out Bionicle wiki and the story confused me that I needed to ask my son to retell the story. Its even more difficult to know which among the named characters have not been turned into a commercial set. Lego normally sells the set and then incorporates the character in their story. There are only few charcters that are not sets or combiner sets or special chosen sets from mocers who designed it before. I know there is Helryx who incidentally is a SHE and not a HE. If you can list down the different unpublished characters in Bionicle wiki here and state their characteristics according to the story line, it would cut the time for research greatly and maybe more people would participate.

Whoops did i call her a he? Sorry, i know she's a she! Yeah that would be a good idea, I'll try to list them! I knew the basic storyline and what not, but i went to Bionicle wiki and apparently there's like this huge untold story and parallel universes and what not, and that offers plenty of ideas. I'll list some out, with their various characteristics and such, thanks for the idea! But right now I'm lazy, and I just realized that you posted a comment in the creation section, but you're a MOD and I like you, and this is relevant information, so I'll let it slide! I'll make the, "No Posting Comments" a little more visible!

Uggh this is sad, come one, why doesn't anyone talk in this group? Other groups with 5 members can come p with more conversation than us! Anyway, there is no set date to this contest, so I'll leave it open for a while, see what comes of it!

The winner will be granted Admin status, unless they are the only entry and win by default, in which case I'll mod them!

I will be posting a list of Bionicles you can use, but it'd help if you guys could shoulder a bit of work, and look some up yourself. Thanks!

please post questions in the "Any Questions?" thread! I said in a previous post that this is an open contest, i have no set date, I want to leave it for a while and see what comes of it! As for link posting, when you have uploaded you new creation, highlight the web address, and post it in the right thread, and voila: You have a link!

Yeah, sorry i know, these aren't official rules, I'm just trying to keep interest up, telling people what is going on, I'll write out official rules soon! But right now I'm working on helping Kyton Arbon get his contest going (you might want to check that out to, in his group, the Mocers!)

I has a question. For my ideas on Tren Krom, i was thinking of like a big scene based off of 'The Awakening' (here: http://blogs.riverfronttimes.com/dailyrft/AwakeningSculpture-RES20010712.jpg) and in order too do this i would need a lego rock field.

So my question, Can i do that!?!?!

Well...hmmm as long as the "Tren Krom" of the creation is clear, a lego rock field should be fine, but here's a little bit of info you might like regarding Tren Krom, straight from the Bio-Wiki:

Tren Krom was described as having an appearance so horrible that Brutaka had to struggle to maintain his sanity. He was completely organic, and apparently was mainly a scarlet, gelatinous mass, with tentacles for arms.
"In the interests of writing a complete record, I should include every detail of my time there. In the interests of the sanity of anyone reading this, I will not. [...] I remember only a scarlet mass, a face that was not a face, tentacles lined with tiny, sharpened hooks, eyes that were little more than holes in a gelatinous skull, and that voice [...] made Makuta Teridax sound lilting and sweet."
—Mutran

Thank you for reinviting me to enter. As I have discussed on this page, I really don't know or follow the story lines of Bionicle more so the unpublished characters. I am however familiar with some but not all of the existing sets either. As such let me think it over how I may and if I can participate because I just do mocing once in awhile unlike some mocers here because of my busy schedules. For this contest, as you know, I need to read the whole wiki regarding bionicle which takes considering time to give me an idea on what to make.

You didn't read the rules did you? First of all, you posted in the wrong thread. Second you forgot it had to be new moc. Lastly since when is this a canon character? Sorry, this is not a valid entry.

Can I also make makuta Kojol? Maybe get Kojol and Artakha in a battle scene? I was finding it hard to make a decission and thought why not both! Also when does the contest finish?

There is one thing, because Adam Toh just made Arthaka...well i have to grade one of them, and if you just wanted to make Kojol...it mgiht just be easier, becxause you wouldn't have competition...just sayin, perhaps ditch Arthaka...

An official description has been posted for Artahka.

"At the sight of Artakha, the chamber went silent.He stood at least 10 feet tall. His armor was gray-green and covered in runes carved at the beginning of time. His mask was the most ornate anyone had ever seen – more than just a Kanohi, it was a true work of art. The metallic protodermis from which it was forged was arranged in intricate patterns and designs, each reflecting one of the many cultures that flourished in the universe. The eye slits were angular and pointed, giving him an air of both wisdom and a vague sense of menace"-Reign of Shadows

So I guess if you are planning to make Artahka
you'll have to go by this description. I'm not sure. What do you think Matthew?

What do I think? I think that if one were to follow this description to the last letter, then they would win! But of course no one can, and since two people have already entered with models drastically different from this, whatever, from now on, try to use this description, but it's so exact, and yet so vague, that i wont argue if people don't use it!
