Durus the Invincible
Made for Team Z's entry to the Bio Thon in Category #3, Toa of Earth. Enjoy!
About this creation

Name: Durus
Species: Onu-Matoran (Toa)
Element: Earth
Mask: Akaku, Mask of Vision
Weapons: Brute strength, battle hammer, wrist guard
Theme song: Iron Man (Black Sabbath)

Durus was among the first Toa of Earth, when the world was young and fierce. Strong as his terrifying adversaries may be, Durus was even stronger. He could withstand nearly any attack until his opponents tired themselves out. Then, with a mighty swing of his hammer, he would obliterate them. Durus' unflinching determination helped tame the world so that Matoran could live in peace.

I really wanted to go for the classic, tank-like Toa of Earth look, and I think I did rather well. That slightly darker HF silver really looks good with black.

Durus' hammer was a fun weapon to build. A good Bionicle hammer is extremely difficult to build, especially while maintaining a size to weight ratio that a Toa can lift.

Legs. I wonder why people don't use HF leg armor for thighs more often, it looks pretty good.

Back. Slightly more segmented armor leaves Durus' back more vulnerable, but allows for more range of motion than the rest of his solid armor allows. Besides, who is going to get past a two-ton Toa?

Battle pose, oh yeah! Durus can use his wrist guard as a weapon when there isn't enough room to effectively swing his hammer. In all honesty, getting hit with any part of Durus means you're having a bad day.

Bio-Thon Link.

Thanks for viewing, this guy was a fun build, his heavy-set appearance was a different and refreshing for a Toa MOC. I hope I get good scores! Thanks for viewing, and let me know what you think!

Every inch the hard-hitter. I really like your placement of the HF torso armor piece as his left gauntlet.

Quoting Berial . Pretty good but...Why do you pose him like he's taking a d-u-m-p all the time?
Sumo stance? Or maybe he just had a really big lunch.

Quoting Steve The Squid Lol! I see you have a broken joint in the fifth pic! I break those all the time...
Haha yeah, I think that they tightened up the sockets so that there would be more hold on the joints for heavier MOCs, but since the new ones break so easily, the stronger hold is completely lost. Ever notice how none of the older sockets break?

Very good one. Like the bulkyness and the solid design. The hammer is great, even tough it could have been simpler. I like it.

Quoting crash 703 WH! That guy is really beefed up! Looks like he can't really extend his legs though. Really fits a toa of earth.
His legs can extend all the way, they just look a bit strange when he does because of the shape of his armor. It ends up looking over-extended a bit.

Quoting Ben Cossy Brilliant! Love that hammer design! I know what you mean about getting it perfect in everyway so the Toa can hold it, and so it looks good! Anyway, love that thigh design and awesome choice of mask! Great stuff Cody ;)
Aren't you supposed to give me a score or something? Haha :p

Very nice bulk! That hammer seems very nice, but maybe that little red there threw it off balance. Axel colours are as importaint as the armour plates.

@Cody: Actually, I did that ON MY LegoFreak. Although I got the tire thing from a guy on YT, I'm pretty sure he used a different tire. Anyways, that moc looks amazing!! Although the left arm's HF chest would have looked better as normal silver, this guys is great! Score= 5/5

Quoting WindEdge Gemini Cool! Whered you get the ring in the chest from?
It's just a tire. I think it was originally Legofreak's design to put a tire in the HF chest instead of a core.
