About this creation

My dream was to use all six Bohrok to create a massive robot, using every single piece, and possibly a canister lid. I discovered two things:

1) The pieces from six Bohrok do not go nearly as far as you would imagine.
2) Whoever designed the Bohrok helpfully neglected to include any 4-stud or 7-stud rods.

After many brutal cuts to the design that saw its height shrink by a third, its limbs wither and weapons get ever smaller, I finally admitted defeat at the point you can see below, with only the hands and shoulders left to complete.

For the enjoyment of people here, I added missing parts to complete the design. The completed model uses every piece of all six Bohrok apart from 1 trigger, 1 head-lever-thing and 1 Krana. Also I lost one of the Lehvak claws, and had to substitute other rubber bands for ones that broke. Nonetheless, I am confident that anyone can build this with any six Bohrok they own.

The parts added to the completed model (not including the rods holding the arms up for the photo) are:

1 x 6-stud rod
3 x 5-stud rods
5 x 3-stud rods
2 x 2-stud friction pegs
4 x socket joints

, leaving me just 15 pieces away from success, 13 of which are part of Bohrok kits! If only there were seven in every team...

Very interesting and refreshing idea, we don't see many combiners around anymore. Yes, it may hadn't come up as you expected, but I don't think its a big of a fail. Nice use of the canister lid.
