Now I'm presenting you Barriena, a female half Rahkshi, half Toa.
About this creation
Backstory: Barriena was an experiment of creating a new kind of perfect soldier, but after making her they destroyed the old plans and worknow at a new one, so she stayed unique. Like all silver Rahskhi, she has the power of chain lightning. When she was created, they have given her a secondary element: ice.
And now to the pics and the lack of a decent description :D
So, here we are, writing a critic piece xD
So, let's first start off with the positives about this moc.
Her body design is really well done and the torso armory and that tube down to her crotich is a really neat feature that just strikes me.
It all makes her look like a mean and lean killing machine (see what I did there?)
Then, the parts I'm less fond off: The legs and arms. I can understand them rather well, as this is a one-day build, but obviously, their improvement mainly lies there. The upper arms are a bit too skinny, the wrists don't move and the legs seem a tad unfitting. Maybe chicken-legs would suit her better, despite the fact that is far from Canon. Her lower back also looks al ittle off to me, as it is rather square looking.
I also don't really understand the spear-thing as a weapon. While it looks pretty neat, it isn't really usable for stabbing as the knive on the side keeps it from being a convincing looking weapon.
Lastly, I'd like to compliment you for not falling into what most users do and drown poor Barriena in greebles. She's is a cool, clean creation that just could benefit from some upgrades.
She looks really nice! I like the silver scheme that is perfectly supplemented by the blue eyes (even the blue connectors you used at her side seem to underline the color) Her arms and legs are easy but especially the arms fit her perfectly. All in all: A really great MoC! - Gretings, Tavis.
Cool. Those blue eyes are really nice with the silver. They really stand out. I also like the idea of making it half Rahkshi, half Toa. So much silver. People like you amaze me with all your Technic/Bionicle building.
Thanks :D! @Obsessionist: To your problem: I have the same! A can't see any of my older stuff! I think I'll try something out, then we both should be able to have a look at them... Edit: Hasn't worked. I think I have to re-upload them, meeh :( --- Edit 2: All stuff back online.
Nice! I would never have thought of a rakhski/toa hybrid. Is she good or evil? Or is she a naughty little angel? --"This is a hollow mockery!"--Frank Burns --"Not true, I've never taken the insides out of a mockery!"--"Hawkeye" Peirce----- --R1C6i3
Wow, so many comments and ratings in only 5 hours! Thanks, guys! @Owl + Oblivious: Seems the idea of taking blue eyes was great :D @Luja: Good that you (and maybe others?) noticed the bonding of the Toa body to her Rahkshi upper. It has taken small amount of time, but the result is just like I wanted. @Kyle: It's mostly the body which makes this one so complex, and yepp, the rest was really simple build :D. And I get two of this silver rahkshi heads from Roodaka.
nothing is a complicated build, besides the body, but it looks really nice. So that means you picked some great pieces for this moc ! The body design is really cool, And the way the upper body armor bends to resemble a real rahkshi is awesome ! Amazing job. 5/5
