Face it. The Rahkshi could be ninjas if they had the right weapons. Cheap MOC this is, but hey, it looks cool. ^_^ ph33r t3h ninj4.
About this creation
Makuta has birthed the Rahkshi, six evil insectoid reptiles, each with their own twisted method of helping their father spread his shadow.

However, one questioned his father's motives. Why is domination so important? Why take over the island of Mata Nui instead of coexisting with those who call the island their home?

Angry at his son, or rather, his minion, Makuta cast the maverick aside. Too bad... for this maverick has already proven to be much more powerful than his brethren. Banished, the lone wolf was left out of the Chronicles. ginRaiden, the legendary silver Rahkshi, remained nothing more than a myth to the Matoran.

ginRaiden is capable of achieving unfathomable speeds second only to sound itself. With his swords he can throw boomerang-like energy blasts at any target, and can also cut through even the thickest layer of protodermic armor.

Cheap, I know, but I don't have all my pieces with me. ^_^;

Still, I think he turned out well, considering the situation. It's my first MOC in a long, long time. I was playing on the idea that the Rahkshi looked like ninjas... and, given they get a change of weapons, they could very well be. So I swapped the staff for Lewa Nuva's "air katana". The Nuva chest armor pieces on the ankles were simply so he looked more natural kneeling (that his ankle would actually TOUCH the ground properly).
That's not really a silver Rahkshi cowl, it's simply a Guurahk head painted silver. I noticed that the 'silver' pieces that came with the Takanua-Ussanui set had a bluish tint, so I sacrificed an extra Guurahk for this purpose, thinking the silver might be thin enough for some of the blue to show through. Though that didn't happen, it still looked good enough to me (almost fooled someone, too).
The tail didn't come to me until a couple days after the Rahkshi itself was built. I figured he'd look cool that way, and the tail provided a lot of balance so I could put ginRaiden in cooler, more dynamic poses.
Note I also went over some of the lines with a fine-tip Sharpie pen (note the back spikes and the sides of the cowl).

Yeah. o-o
