Spheroid Iota
Iota makes his home amongst the chronodermis-rich ice floes of Cryo-Magna. ((My entry to B.D's Bionicle Freak Contest.))
About this creation
Name: Zeavii - [IOTA]
Race: Spheroid
Location: Cryo-Magna.




Iota is owned by an Akonian named Rellis. Like many akonian workers in his company, he is one of many ice miners who collect chronodermis-rich ice from the surface of Cryo-Magna. The ice is later processed to create refined chronodermis, used for starship fuel, medicine, and industry. Due to Necra-Magna falling, Cryo-Magna's chronodermis trade ballooned. This moon is now responsible for alost a third of the star system's income from Sirrush.



Using super-pressurised steam to cut at the ice, Iota can carry twice his own weight of the stuff before having to drop it off in a transport. He works longer hours that the akonian workers, simply because he has constructed his body in such a way that this work is not tiring for him. Favouring four legs over two, and each leg ending in a sharp pick-like appendage, Iota can clamber over ice with ease that an unaided akonian cannot. The cold does little to harm him either. The other workers like him because of the motivating spheroid singing he will produce when working. It puts them at their ease, relieving stress and fatigue.



Like all spheroids, Iota has a claw with two fingers and two thumbs, and his spherical "head" is exposed to the elements. It is mounted on a telescopic platform, allowing him to rotate it and face in any direction. His waist spins 360 degrees. Two mechanical arms and a telescopic eye hang under his chassis, litting him scan and pick at the ice beneath his feet for chronodermis.



Usually a Spheroid will base his vody's appearance on that of its master's race. The alien appearance of Iota's suit shows either remarkable originality in design, or the fact that Iota has served a different race before...

^ Gradually, I'm managing to add more system to my MOCs. Iota here has this block of bricks in his chassis, but is pretty much technic for the rest of him...


For enyone wanting to make their own spheroid, the colour scheme consists of a base secondary colour (like black or grey), a highlight colour which matches their sphere(like blue or red), and a trans-colour. It's similar to the VOAT theme. Their bodies can be very varied in shape, but the constants are always the spehrical head and the hand.



Iota has:

  • Spheroid Head

  • 2-thumbed Hand

  • Quadruped Chassis and Spiked Feet

  • Tools and Arms... down there

  • And a built in Steam Sun.

  • All of these things qualify him for the contest, I think...

    Oh, and Iota is clearly much smaller than 15 inches tall ^^;

    And for anyone else in the Bionicle Freak contest, Good luck! :D

Sick spheroid, man! And you were right, Amtrox's blue basketball did hatch into a baby spheroid. It's grown a little, and has been given to Callan since it took a liking to him. I'll be posting it soon(probably tomorrow. And don't hesitate to tell me what I did wrong on it if there's something.) :D

I really like these spheroids, the only thing that holds me back from building one is that I have no way of making a hand, much less a two-thumbed one! PS,good MOC. Very nice mix of system and technic.
