Tunem, Turaga of Silver
Made for Toa Phosphorus' Periodic Bionicle Contest. Enjoy!
About this creation
Turaga Tunem, often called Rusty due to his tarnished armor, is among the oldest living Turaga. Rusty's old age has rendered him very forgetful and completely senile. Typically useless for all purposes, he occasionally spurts forth a phrase of such wisdom that Matoran and Toa alike will put up with his ranting for weeks or months at a time just for a chance to hear some advice.

While not predominately the color silver, he is still the color of silver, just oxidized from years of aging.

I tried to get that frail, old, crazy guy look for this build. I think it turned out very well.

"Ohh, my back."

Traditional hunched Turaga back.

The only thing that Rusty keeps in good repair is his staff, just in case he needs it to fight off Makuta. Or whack a young whippersnapper on the head.

I'm happy with the foot design here, they look a lot like old man sandals to me.

"Where is my rocking chair? It was here a minute ago..."

What tarnished silver really looks like: brownish black.

Wow, this is pretty well done! You really did capture the "old guy" look. Forgive me for saying so, but when he sits in his chair, he looks like a Halo Covenant Prophet. That however does give him an aura of dominance and power. Great work!

Another great bionicle, and a very interesting take on the concept, I've never seen an old man one before. I knew what it was before I even read the description.

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant ANYWAY, this MOC is brilliant. I love how you gave him a chair as well, and you did well on your research for this too.
Phos isn't the only one who paid attention in chemistry. ;) Thanks for the feedback, Gringat.

@ Gergely: Actually, Verdigris is CuCO3 - Copper Carbonate. The stuff that gives church roofs that distinctive green colour. ANYWAY, this MOC is brilliant. I love how you gave him a chair as well, and you did well on your research for this too.

Wow this was unexpected. You took the look the original turaga sets and made it modern. So far I've seen every thing from to a looking creatures to uber classic, but this is just right in the middle. Feet are great. Chair is a nice touch. (though it won't be judged) The arms are cool and the body is really a great nostalgia moment. Fantastic Job.
