Yup, V2 of Aridike, utilizing some HF 2.0 parts. Nex has come in VERY handy. :P
About this creation
Yeah, I know. Y'all are saying "Wait, didn't he use to control Gravity?" Well, he still does, but due to a complex series of science-y stuff and other things that will be revealed in the future (Part 5), there's a lot of stuff I'm not gonna say now.
Just enjoy the Revampature!
EDIT: As Nick Nitro Brick has just reminded me, here are his Bio. Stats! Er, whatever they're called...(AS OF PART 5)
Aliases: The BARON, Time Baron, Aridike 229
Race: Artificial Toa
Occupation: Multiverse Defender, Keeper of Time
Status: AWESOME :D
Alright, so, as soon as I got Nex 2.0, I immediately changed the hand. It looks so cool!!
Aridike: Hmmm...New hand...SWEEET!!
Aridike: Now I can pull off a cool 'Thinker' pose!
Then there's also the shield bit from Nex on his back.
And a revamped Gravity Blade utilizing the 4-bit flat-head rod from Nitroblast.
But the best part's the new thigh design!
I used two HF 2.0 limbs and set one in one way and the other opposite, connecting them with a socket joint, but they can be connected with a double-sided connector, too. Makes for a great way to use the HF pieces with old style pieces while still using the HF armor.
Feel free to use the design, just give credit!
There's V2! This is how Aridike looks in Part 5 (Which will be shown on my new DeviantArt profile. Since Part 5 is at least 20 Chapters, I'll be posting it there.)
OK, got the back story! Very detailed! Love it! Mind checking out my self moc? I want to put some 2.0 on him. I don't know any sets w/ Silver armor and I am not sure if lime works or not. Can you give me some suggestions on my page? BTW his name is Ventalus

nice self moc, when i add him to the story he will have to have a black mask because i do not have a orange one of those. =D
Fine by me. Callen has already pulled that off nicely. :P

Great good! Nice use of Nex's parts! Sorry but this is the first of your mocs i have seen. What is 229 Baron and 230 Baron mean?
Oh boy, oh boy. It's, well... It's really, really REALLY complcated. I think that it would best be explained in my most recent posted chapter (15) of Aridike's Tale on my DA page. Link!

Nice lesson for all them Clone Kiddies that try to use the force. I'm trying a similar thing with the lack of ball/socket joints on one of my most recent MOCs. Oh, and I'm pretty sure that Aridike could take on Akara. I'm more sure than that, I'm fairly certain he'd win. Can't really fight when you're frozen in time, now can you?
Hehehe, not if Akara breaks the mask before the fight starts. And the mask of time can only slow down or speed up time... I think.

Great! I have a few questions to ask. 1.How tall is Aridike? 2.What process does a bio-MOC have to go through to be a baron? 3.How did Aridike get one robotic arm?
Well, I'm glad you asked, Bill! 1) Do you mean the MOC or he? The MOC itself is about 9-10 inches or so tall, but I imagine him as being taller than the average Toa. 2) Well, by it's ver definition, a Baron is someone who controls almost all of an industry. Aridike was originally a Baron of crime (Baron spelled in all caps; BARON, which is also an acronym for the code of the Knights, his criminal gang, which stands for Beyond Absolute rule,Rapt attention, Organized crime,and Noble to the end (each capitalized letter makes BARON)). All of this history and more can be found in this and the linked posts: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/250410. 3) Also in the same link, but: He lost his arm in the Great Archieves Fire, and had to make a robotic prosthetic for himself, which he constantly upgraded until his transformation into a Toa, upon which it transformed with him into what you see in V2. I'm glad you have found intrest in Aridike, and it's been a pleasure to be of service! :D
