My entry to the Bioncle Mocs Rahi/Toa Contest(Round 1): Group 1-Land Rahi. Enjoy!
About this creation
More closely related to a large lizard than the whismical Draco species, this is one of the fastest creatures on all of Tora Nui.
Its streamlined body and head give it extreme speed, along with its powerful legs and nimble feet and claws.
Its tail can act like a wind flap, giving extra bursts of speed or, to be the "brakes". The Rush Dragon is covered in strong scales, for protection from any high-speed impacts.
Its diet consists of the insects and rodents found in the Deserts of Po-Tora, its native region. Despite its large size (about twice the size of a Toa) it is quite a docile creature, and is frequently ridden by Matoran for transportation and fun.
However, when faced with its rival it can become quite violent. The Rush Dragons are heated enemies with the Ash Bears, and the two species have fought for generations.
Rush Dragons attack with their sharp tails and claws. The fastest Rush Dragons can reach speeds of 230 miles per hour.

This was an interesting Rahi to build, and my first uploaded MOC in a while. The hardest part was probably making the torso stay together. I really ended up with a nice end result, very "complete" and "filled out" if you get what I mean. It was a nice change from Toa and "Toa Scale" MOCs. I wrote the description in a flash of insight, and at around 12:30 at night (wait, wouldn't that be the morning...?), so you'll excuse anything odd I may have added in unaware. All in all, this all came together really nicely, and it was nice to step away from my BIG project for a while.
So thanks for viewing, I'd appreciate if you'd rate and comment, and make sure to check out my other stuff! And maybe I have a chance of winning this contest!
Good, very good! >o< RANDOM SPAZ SEIZURE ATTACK TIME!!!! AAAAA!!!!! Just kidding, but anyways nice dragon mabye if you get the chance you could finally perfect the torso and possibly add some wings.
