The second member of Lotem that I'm posting separately, Gelidos! As I've said before, Lotem will be posted, one per week, so next week will be... Furven :) But for now, enjoy Gelidos :) And yes before anyone says anything, his quote is derived from one of Kopaka's quotes on Biosector :)
About this creation
"The evil on this planet is about to learn that justice can be very ... cold."
Title(s): Toa, Wise one, Brother
Mask: Kanohi Hilse: The ability to freeze any surface around him then be able to manipulate that surface (E.G. freeze rocks and throw them at enemies telekinetically)
Weapon(s): Nothing, but he can make his own weapons out of ice
Story: Gelidos was a Ko Matoran that longed to be a Toa, he always followed Kopaka on his adventures and longed to be just like him! Gelidos figured that Kopaka never noticed him, but he did. Kopaka eventually asked Gelidos why he was following him and he told him he wanted to be a Toa like him. Kopaka had a good feeling about Gelidos and decided to give him a Toa stone that he was waiting to use on the right Matoran. Gelidos trained with Kopaka for a while and he eventually did become as good as him. Many were shocked that Kopaka would take interest in a matoran, given Kopaka's nature. So a lot of toa consider Gelidos to be as good as Kopaka himself! Gelidos later joined the Toa Lotem as a few missions with Kopaka.
Gelidos’s acts similar to Kopaka does, after all he is his idol, but Gelidos loves to fight and shows it whenever he does, not to mention he is very good at it!
NOW TO THE MOC!
So here he is! I'm quite pleased with how he turned out :)
A back shot :)
There aren’t enough Toa of Ice these days!
Gelidos: Do you really wanna mess with me?
Yet another shot :P So let's go into the details!
His feet and legs, I really like using those Metru bodies, they can be a great piece sometimes!
Upper legs, inspired by Bonechill.
A shot of the inside of his legs and kinda the top :P
Now a better shot of the top :)
His waist :D
His... well I like to think of them as snow boots :D
The back of his legs, icicle like thingys there too :)
His greebled torso :D
A closer look!
An even closer look, no he does not have three heartlights! Just the one :P
His mask, love that mask!
His arm design, the other is basically the same.
His shield, I like how I connected it :D Do you?
A closer look at the shield's connection. The pin is meant to be a mini turret... So yeah, that'll be replaced XD
The upper arms :)
A side shot :D LOVE that ice piece so much!
Another shot of his torso :)
The other arm, the same really :P
The back, again, thank you Clockwork :P
I used a Mata head too :D
An overall shot of him :D
Size comparison between him and Ackar :)
EPIC DUO SHOT!!!
The three who have been posted separately so far, Nuxen got a gatling gun >:D
As said in the bio he can make any weapon he wants out of ice
Gelidos: DUAL AXES!!!!
Gelidos: FOR NARNIA!
Gelidos: I'll catch you all later!
This is basically what Gelidos represents, a rough, tough, strong, jagged piece of ice :)
And with that, we are done!
Thanks for viewing guys!
Hope you liked him!
Don't forget to rate and comment!
Till Next Time ;)
I really like it! Great head, not many people use the original mata head, which is a shame. It's hyper greebled torso is awesome too. One suggestion, you might want to change the upper arm armor a bit, since the main piece in there seem to stick out a bit too much. Other than that, I can't really think of anything wrong with it. I like how you use body designs against the stereotypes for the element (Stocky toa of air, shorter toa of ice, taller toa of water, .etc)
Again, I LOVE this moc, but I'll take awhile to make my first one until someone gives me instructions for posting a MOC, and I get the supplies I need, I won't be posting MOCs. Because my supplies are very scarce as of now.
EDIT:I LOL'd on the part that said: FOR NARNIA! :)
I don't like it...
WAAAAY overdone and overly complicated. It pains me somewhat to look at it, the overall shape is kind of terrible. I can see you worked hard on it, but there is too much going on in its structure, a lot of it is "over-greebled" and has too much armor. I assume most people like it because they are not particularly good MOCers. I apologize in advance for being a tough critic, or as some would say, a cutella.
Wow! I am completely speechless. I just created my profile a few minuites ago and I have yet to post MOCs. And for anyone that is wondering, I named my profile after my dog. My self MOC is supposed to be a matoran of ice, mostly because I don't have the parts to make him bigger.
I'm sorry I haven't been commenting on your stuff Ben, but schools been killer, and being sick after sharing a drink with my gf who had a cold really didn't put me in the mood to comment, But I really like him and I love the shield idea it looks real! Anyways I also have posted up Magmabane, adn I really would appreciate it if you took some time to comment on him. Again great stuff Ben Later!

OOOOOMMMMMGGGGG!!!!! I LOOOOOVVVVVEEEEE ITTTTT!!!!! LLLLLOOOOOVVVVVEEEEE ITTTTT!!!!! SSSSSOOOOO COOOOOLLLLL!!!!! I LOVE HIM!!! HE'S SOOOO COOL!!!!
Thanks Brickprime and Carrubba! Well Shadow he did get spammed yes :/ Anyway, I see what you mean, I have upgraded him since that post and he will be getting upgrades in the future, but at the moment nothing will be changed since I'm kinda busy and I actually am very happy with how he looks at the moment :)
Dude only 128 people added a like on Cossy. And he has 410 likes! Did he get spammed?!?! But, Since I can't comment on Cossy I'll say it here. I think he deserves a upgrade with your new skills. The body is too short. Also he has alot of Inika limbs and a non-custom body. I think he could use some improvement. Well, hope I didn't make you mad. He just needs an upgrade! ,Shadow
nuxen will be hard to beat, even by yourself, but, you did some nice touches on this one too, you seem to be on a polishing stage, it s very interesting to see where it will take you, there are some great and original elements on this one, nicely done ben!
Although he has clear problems, this guy seems pretty good. he has a unique concept which you have pulled off very well. It does feel as though you just threw the bit on his back on though. He also has too smooth of armour in certain places for what you're trying to pull off. Flawed, but still good.
cool! i like this guy! BTW i'll be starting something epic.... A RAHI WAVE! Enough 'bout me, i agree with you there should be more ice characters! i like the strakk elements on him, represents how rough he can be sometimes (but not a dirty cheat, which is basicly what Straak is) and i like Nuxen's Gatling gun XD great work, keep it up!!!!
I asked this on the brewing sandstorm to, can you make a lego inside of senate building? i know ur busy, but could you just put it on your to do list? Great moc by the way! you know what, ill bet your THE single most popular TFOL on the pages! how long have you been here anyway?
Thanks a bunch guys! Thanks James, Fortrux and Skrall! Well Doc. I just got that picture off Google, but it wouldn't be snowing down hear anyway, it never does :P Ah glad you like it Cody, thanks! Oh man you have no idea how much that means Galaxus! Thank you so much! Eh, I'll do a shot of all of them, but probably not a fight Jensen :) I see what you mean Crazy, thanks! I'll look into it ;) Ah it's cool Pho, glad you like him ;) Thanks Monarth, I agree, I'll see what I can do :) Glad you like him Legobob! GAH Popcorn, you pick the worst time to ask that XD Well I'm currently in a MOC OFF with Gringat, then after that I'm having one with Baron Von Ben, and after that Awesomeness, and after that, then I can have one with you :) So long story short, I'd love to mate ;) HAHA thanks Chaos! Thanks Vored, I see what you mean, thanks for telling me, I'll look into it! Ah cheers Gringat! Oh that's great news, I'm done with mine so let me know when you are ready to post em ;) Thanks Callan, yeah I agree, they will probably be changed :) HAHA thanks Owl, can't wait to see that Ice MOC :D HAHA thanks Kenaz :P Can't wait to see it! Cheers Chopper, always epic to hear from you! HAHA guess that's an advantage RIC :P I see... I'll have to change that Legofreak :P Thanks ;) Cheers Connor! I'll change that, thanks ;) I'd thank everyone else, but look how big this comment got :S

I was thinking "He should try making a super-greebled toa that's about the size of an Inika. Then I saw him next to Ackar. Wish granted!

epic moc like the legs ,body is awesome and the color look great with the moc
Another awesome Toa Lotem! Gotta love those Toa of Ice! I freaking love that lower leg design, and it's easy to see that he was inspired by Bonechill. My only critisizm is the torso, it doesn't have enough armor. I can see too many of those light gray Technic pieces and it seems too distracting. (At least, in my opinion.) Not the best Toa Lotem, but he is still much better than anything I could ever do. :)
ok I know you don't copy, but this looks like my HF moc Julian Frostzone... but it's thanks to the strakk pieces and the helmet on the back. not your fault. This is a truly epic bulky moc !Soo many greebles like always, you always deliver the best and make this amazing ! I honestly love what you make all the time ! :) 5/5
Ben, why can't you make something not SUPER AWESOME every once in a while? It makes us look bad. :P Awesome job! I have a Ice Toa sitting on my shelf waiting to be posted, but its nothing compared to this. Awesome!
Gloriously greebled, gloriously icy, and gloriously glorious. Good news too! Finished "The Beast"'s custom head and am well underway with preliminary body and limb designs. The first jolt of college starting has calmed away now, so I've found where my free time actually is.
What a amazing look! Those ice pieces work really great, and the duo axes look nice! And he has a very interesting body design. One thing I noticed: How do he hold his weapons? It just really look like he is grab his weapon, more like it is attached there somewhere... but altogether, this one gets his 5/5 rating, of course :D
Dude, THIS IS EPIC!!!!! How come you're posting them in the order that I like them? First Cossy, then Nuxen, and now Gelidos. Who's next? Say, I'm going to have some more Bionicles up soon. I just have to wait until my cousin can give me his. I was also wondering if you wanted to have a MOCoff with me sometime soon. It could be fun. Also, who do you think that I should build first? My sisters self MOC or that titan Toa guy? Well I got to go now. I'm off to a fair. Great job on this (again)!!!
That's awesome, but you could get some armoring for the shoulders though. As the arm armor is fairly down on the arms, his shoulders look very bare, as if the arms are ready to disconnect. Arms: "Off we go! Adios Gelidos! We're going away, single-handedly!" (pun)
Really cool Ben! Those legs look great and that custom greebled torso looks phenomenally awesome! Having those trans blue spikes everywhere is pretty nice too. I think the only thing that needs changing are the upper arms: the visorak legs hinder arm movement ive noticed. Otherwise, great job, and can't wait for Furvens!
OwO This is just too AMAZING! The uber-greebled torso, the stylish legs, the spiky ice pieces, the glorious weapon! Your mocs are an experience that text cannot convey. Man, this is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Can't wait for the remaining!
Thanks Tyrathius! No idea why there are so little! Thanks mate ;) Thanks Nathan, that actually means so much! Thanks ;) Cheers Tor I want another, it killed me so much inside to have to kill my second :/
AWESOME! That looks great mate! Thanks for showing me, can't wait to see it done! Anyway, take your time with it! I can understand why it's taking awhile, school is important! Thanks for the comment mate ;)
