Toa Tira
Hey, everybody, I'm back! This was a request from a friend of mine, and it is her self-MOC. She will have it on display for a while, but I made it very clear that I needed the MOC back eventually for parts. After all, if time is money and money is legos, then time away from legos is just plain expensive. Anyway, here is my friend's self-MOC, Tira! Enjoy!
About this creation
Name: Tira
Species: Matoran (Ta-Matoran)
Element: Fire
Titles: Toa, Protector, Sparky
Kanohi: Pakari, Mask of Strength
Weapons: Spear, shield

Story:
Tira was a Ta-Matoran mask maker of a small village on Spherus Magna. Her village's Toa protectors left to fight in a terrible war between Toa and Makuta forces. Alone, but relatively safe, the village did their best to aid in the war effort, forging masks, armor, and weapons for their Toa on the frontlines. One day, Tira went into some tunnels outside of her village to collect materials needed to create more masks. But deep in the tunnels, she sensed a dark presence looming overhead. She ran, but took a wrong turn and fell into a pool of energized protodermis. Her tormenter, a stealthy Makuta, left her for dead and went into the village to enslave the Matoran so as to gain more supplies for the Makuta army. Litle did he know that Tira, instead of becoming horribly mangled from the mutations, was transformed into a Toa! Now it is her duty to defeat the Makuta and save her village.

So this is my first attempt at a feminine-looking Toa, and I think I did a pretty good job. Now, before you say "Not another female frame, those are way overdone!", having a feminine build was one of the requirements that my friend gave me, and I shift the blame to her. :p

Head and torso detail. I didn't think that I could pull of a Pakari on a female Toa, but it turned out rather well if you ask me.

Her spear. Perfect for slashing, stabbing, throwing, and maiming.
Tira: "Tee hee!"

Her shield. Perfect for, um, blocking stuff.
Tira: "Seriously? That's the best you could come up with?"

Legs. The thighs turned out very well for being custom. In case you haven't noticed, I typically prefer using normal limbs and finding ways to attach enough armor to make it look good. I improvise when I have to. :)

Every girl needs a sensible pair of heels.

Back view. I always thought that hair on a Bionicle was lame, but when I tried it out I was shocked at how much more feminine she looked with it than without it. It might not be the prettiest, but I now recognize it as somewhat necessary.

Battle pose!

Cute pose! Close your mouth before you swallow a fly, Cheesy.

Epic Duo shot! Cossy should be in there, but I wanted to show off some upgrades I did on Solunus. I made his torso longer to be in proportion to his shoulders, and he's now a full 2 beam units taller!

Solunus: "Brofist!"
Tira: "All right! Wait, I'm a girl..."
One of the great mysteries of the Bionicle world.


Well, that was a pretty fun and different build for me. Now I need to get back on track and make the next episode of "I Choose You!" before Callan puts his chibi Solunus up against Magmagear in a Bio-Fight. Until next time, thanks for viewing and let me know what you think!

Quoting Leon Powalski Would you mind if i built a gym from a region other than Johto?
Feel free to! Mine is Giovanni's gym, but it's not really based on any reference pictures, and is not accurate at all. Just be creative! :)

Quoting Alex Mac Brilliant and eye-catching colors, I really like the rubber band infused chest design.
Thanks! The rubber band is more style than anything, but I thought it looked attractive.

Quoting Baron Von Ben ~ Very nice job! A very nice color scheme. :D But I have some bad news...I'm gonna have to drop out of your contest...X( I've entered the Bio-Cup AND I have my 3 gigantic project's (4 with my BC entry...) I'm working on... Real sorry! XD
It's all good! I was going to enter the bio-cup but I decided I had more important things to build as well, so I totally see where you're coming from. Good luck! :)

Quoting Leon Powalski Nice. I got some not-so-nice news, though. My computer got a virus, so i got an anti virus program. It got rid of the virus, but for some reason it hated .lxf files, which is what LDD uses. So that gym that I should have posted a looooong time ago? Deleted. On an unrelated note, I did find a small box with a decent amount of bionicle parts, so i might try using those for something.
That's too bad, I was looking forward to seeing it! Oh well, it's not that big a deal. Good luck with your computer!

Well made, but I suggest moving the actual hip balljoints closer together. The X across the chest looks pretty snazzy.

Nice female MOC, my first failed horribly... Anyway, I really like how you did the torso, and the shield is pure win. My only gripe is that the orange seems sorta out of place. Other than that though you have one awesome MOC.

Quoting Legofreak2444 ~ Hehe, that'd be an interesting Bio-fight. :P She looks epic bro. Hmm...I believe you used my foot design though, if you could give me credit that'd be nice. :)
Whoops! It kind of just came together, I didn't even know you had a heel design! Well, props to Legofreak2444 for coming up with the design first, everyone! :p

Very interesting, I don't think I've ever seen a female frame quite like this. The torso is very unique, and it's nice to see articulation in the "spinal column," if you will. The feet are great too, and again, not something I've ever seen before. Nice use of the rubber band too. Great stuff :)

Great MOC! I wouldn't say that feminine builds are overdone, but what do I know? ^^' Anyway, I like Tira's design especially the idea with the Toa Nuva Shoulder for her chest and the design of her shoulders is pretty cool.

hey cody do ya think you could do another compilation featuring the magikarp from I Choose You episode 5? Also, could i recomend a pokemon???If so, i would recomend Poliwag!My friend has been BEGGING me for a spot on a cyoa for pokemon i am making so i gave it to him,he decided his team in advanced, and wants poliwrath, i thought you could maybe design the poliwag to kinda get me started.and dont worry if indeed you did make a poliwag i would give you IMMENSE credit....even if i cancel the idea of a series i will still post all of my lego pokemon and give credit to you for the designs i used from your compilations....

how can i comment without being weird? LOL, she looks, i guess i can say "cute", but i think her shoulders are too wide apart for a female.Waist articulation on a female moc is a bonus point immediately and a must have (along with hair). You can pose her in more feminine poses, not a lie! Lower legs are amazing as the weapons are: well done! The shoes look strange, but for your first female moc, really well done! 5/5
