Solunus, the ex-Toa. Once he was one of the great protectors of Ghetta Nui, but his team was killed and his power almost completely drained. Now he relies on his wits and his knack for technology to protect himself from the gangs of Ghetta Nui, waiting for his chance to restore peace to his island.
About this creation
Element: Air (lost)
Mask: Kakama (nearly drained)
Weapons: Assault rifle, grenade launcher
Vehicles: Armored trike
After Solunus lost his powers, he decided, rather than go into exile, to live in the city, fighting alongside the few matoran who resist gang oppression, keeping a few neighborhoods safe at night.
Solunus' mask does not grant him powers of speed as it once did, but he has modified its interior to provide him with a heads-up-dislpay and a synchronized targeting system for his weaponry.
Solunus wears very little of his original Toa armor due to the fact that it was designed to provide easy movement rather than durability against bullets. With his speed powers depleted, he has difficulty avoiding fire like he used to.
Solunus' waist is jointed too, allowing for increased movement and playability.
His grenade launcher is of his own design (just like all of his other equipment), and is capable of firing all six of its high-powered explosives in rapid succession.
The assault rifle has a magnifying scope that links to the antenna on the side of Solunus' mask, allowing for him to see targets magnified without actually having to look through the sights of the rifle.
Solunus is also an expert at hand-to-hand combat. During his days as a Toa, he was armed with two daggers which he would often throw, leaving him armed with only his fists. This was no handicap; Solunus is very strong and fast.
The armor that Solunus wore has been mostly integrated into his armored trike. While not the strongest of metals, it is lightweight.
When Solunus rides his trike, he is connected to his old Toa armor. Sometimes his mask reactivates for short periods of time, giving his bike an incredible boost of speed.

Both weapons are very playable, and have reloadable features.

Thanks for viewing, let me know what you think! I might make more Ghetta Nui characters in the future. If you haven't seen the new guardians of Ghetta Nui (older mocs, newer in the timeline), check them out HERE .
love it! do you have any tips when it comes to building bionicle vehicles I am building one right now and I thought you could help :D by the way love the grenade launcher it is remarkably realistic :D and you for letting me join the gettha nui group :D
REALLY awesome job! It's nice to see another Bionicle MOC from you again, you're exceptionally good at them! I love the colors, but the ideas you used on the legs really got me into this. The vehicle was well mastered as well.

Great moc! the design for the grenade launcher is ingenious! However, I don't get hos you reload it..... Oh well. Great design
I've had that grenade launcher sitting around for months, never getting around to building anything with the same colors but too attatched to it to take it apart. It reloads kinda like a backwards break-action shotgun, if that makes any sense.
