(My official entry to BD group "Pimp my toa" contest.Even the Hero Factory Heroes needs an ally in their fight against the villains. Vex Vader is the guy.
About this creation
The forces of the villain Von Nebula is plentiful and strong that the Hero Factory Heroes have looked for an ally of immense power to balance the fight of good versus evil. His name is Vex Vader. Once a villain himself who was bent on conquest, he has since changed his ways due to a program virus that destroyed his past memories.
Who corrupted Vex Vader to switch sides is still a mystery to him or others?
Because of Vex Vader's power to turn the tide against the forces of good, the villain Von Nebula has devised a plan to trap the mysterious Vex Vader and reprogram him back to his old villainous ways.
However, the Hero Factory Heroes led by Jimi Stringer is bent on foiling Von Nebula's plan.
Stay tune for the exciting adventures of the Hero Factory Heroes.

VEX VADER is my entry to Bionicle Display's "pimp my toa" contest.
According to the rules, I have rebuild the glatorian STRONIUS and then attached parts to him to finally make VEX VADER.
Amazingly, I have been able to carefully hide Stronius. However, you can see Stronium in the upper body of Vex Vader. Stronius head is placed at the back now of Vex Vader. I then constructed a new head armor for Vex Vader which is attached to the middle part of the neck of Stronius. Stronius legs and feet were then folded upwards to form part of the chest and ribs of Vex Vader which is still visible. The shoulder armor of Stronius is now also Vex Vader's shoulder armor. Stronius chest armor is then carefully hidden on newly attached chest pieces of Vex Vader. The torso connector of Stronius were then added to additional torso parts that now make up the lower torso of Vex Vader. New titan strong legs and feet with pistons were then added. Stronium complete arm makes up Vex Vader's biceps and Stronius glatorian dark red hands were then made as Vex Vader elbows which I have carefully hidden it by attaching some forearm armors.
Note: I will dismantle Vex Vader and show you all how Stronius was "pimped up" in a few days before the judging phase.
Vex Vader is build to make him look as much humanoid in proportion as possible. He has complete five movable fingers in each rotatable hands, a strong bendable and poseable elbow and knees and movable head.
The "pimp me" contest was a real challenge and it was a first time for me to create something new out of something already.
Hello everyone in the Isle of Thorns! Just a quick note to tell you to check out the current contest going on – Tribes of Bara Magna! Feel free to delete this after you read it. The lack of PM-ing on MOCpages is quite frustrating.~Gringat
Also, can I say, I am still amazed by this MOC here ;P
I will begin by saying that the pictures and rating does not do this thing justice. You built an exo-skeleton around Stronius?! At first I thought this was just another one of your mega creations, but, alas, I was wrong. I will close by saying that I will ditto all the comments below. =P 100/5
wow, i didn't even know stronious was even a part of this, but when i saw the full body pictures i began to wonder where i had seen a color scheme like this before. awesome moc with a lot of detail , and glad to see you back making mocs agian.
