For the contest in the Bionicle Monthly Contest group.....I was going to build a hydra also, but I don't think I could do it justice, and the half term was running out...:)
About this creation
I was originally going to write some information about Heracles here, but after MOCpages suddenly stopped responding twice whilst trying to post this last night, I'm just going to but a link here.
"Raaaaargh!" *Dives on you*.
The legs...I like this design, although I don't think it's perfect for Heracles...not beefy enough perhaps. :)
My favourite part of this MOC is the chest, I really like how it turned out and how the rahkshi head and mask of speed fit together.
A blurry pic of how the shoulders are built, but I hope it's still understandable. Some pieces like Pohatu Nuva's arms, wedged into the metru body with a bohrok leg. There's also a cable like in the zamor launchers connecting the two arm pieces together around the back which also holds on the rahkshi skin, and the rahkshi heads hold the arms in place so they don't wobble about.
The rahkshi skin piece, meant to be the skin of the Nemean lion. It's attached to his head, but pretty much just hangs there.
Great MOC! I really liked the torso and leg build. The use of the rahkshi piece was smart. I think if you used that green eye piece with the axle connection, you could have attached the rahkshi piece on it... But it's pretty good this way.
