It all started when I saw this - Caleb Ganman's Stars version of Mantax. I saw that he hadn't inverted the body like in the real Mantax set, so I decided, on a whim, to make my own Star Mantax with one of those perpendicular connectors in the torso.
I think it came out well, except for the exposed balljoint. But then, LegoŽ didn;t have a problem with that when they made...
The other set with an inverted torso. I couldn't resist reworking the infamous Skrall as well. Green elites are all well and good, but what about your general, nameless jack of all trades guy? I used the same body design as Mantax, and there was even room for a life counter, and I stuck the blades on the shoulders the right way around, too.
The third Star is an OC of mine. Those in the BRC may know him as the infamous...
(Celldweller, "Own little world". Ezru's theme, and possibly the best remix of it EVAH!)
(The remix artist is called Drop: a band I haven't really explored yet...)
Ezru is the tyrranical, immortal and thoroughly evil master of Tempesta Magna, who has recently escaped from the core of the planet. For more info, check the BRC.
Basically I just needed to figure out how to make him in Bionicle. The Star is a prototype before I attempt to make him in his full size. I know how to build him now! The Stars Piraka head (which I have copied from another MOC) looks perfect for him! If only I could remember who the MOCer is, I'd give credit... if you see this, you know who you are! XD
