Story: Tarshduk was a unique warrior, as he was of dual elements (Earth and Air). He is a daring, brave, and smart warrior. Tarshduk was originally a Glatorian, and was very good at it; as he would try to never give up despite the odds. As a result, he was very successful in the arena. Tarshduk was naturally gifted with the ability to lead and to fight. He was also very honorable and didn't fight dirty. While not in the arena, Tarshduk enjoyed exploring Bara Magna, collecting weapons that he thought were interesting and hanging out with friends. He also studied variety of fighting styles to create his own unique style.
As with many Glatorian, Tarshduk fought in the Battle of Bara Magna to defend his village against the Rahkshi and Skakdi, and because of him and some other Glatorian, saved the village of Tesara from the invaders. After that fateful battle, he went back to being a Glatorian. One day, he was brought to a room after one of his arena battles. In the room, he met three Turaga, Firox, Whinado, and Watock. They said that Tarshduk was chosen for a very special task, gave him a stone, and left. A few weeks after this, a Matoran messenger came and told Tarshduk to follow him. Tarshduk followed the Matoran to an ancient temple where he met the other Glatorian who would also become Toa Magna (Kirax, Fikar, Strarix, Veshtar, Tarvank).
In the temple, they became Toa and the Turaga Galaxy gave them the task of defending Spherus Magna from threats. Almost instantly, he became the leader of the Toa Magna with Kirax as his right-hand man. He and Kirax would usually come up with a plan before going into battle, but if he has to, will also improvise. He and his team have accomplished many key events in their history, including: stealing the Great Kanohi Mask of the Dead back from Makuta Teridax and destroying it in the great volcano of Gradow, fighting off the Blaholre at Tajun and other key cities of Spherus Magna, destroying Bloninux, helping hunt down the surviving Makuta and Dark Hunters, and many other events that have saved Spherus Magna.
He has many friends, like his teammates, other Toa, and many Agori, Matoran, and Glatorian. After one very fateful battle where Tajun was almost conquered by Skrall under the command of unknown warlords, Tarshduk was awarded a medal of honor for his bravery and courage from the Council of Toa and has since been inducted into it. He now roams Spherus Magna with his team in search of something that threatens the safety of Spherus Magna. Along the way, he spars with some passerbys to get even stronger. He also helps Kirax to try to find a cure to his dark infection. He also serves as the peace keeper between the two brothers, Veshtar and Tarvank.
Now, onto Tarshduk and his updates!

4th wall: This was a long awaited revamp by me :D It all started when I got to help in a Lego Store on Feb 17. For working there, I got to fill a grab bag with all the pieces I wanted. (I got a lot of technic and unusual parts, such as the glow-in-the-dark tile) Then on Saturday, I got to work on this guy. I started with the arms and continued from there. Then I eliminated the lime by popular demand :D Then, came the head. The head was a struggle to make. The initial design worked, but the detail was the difficult part. The hair was hard to attach correctly, but I got it after a while. Tarshduk looks great now in my opinion! I can't wait to make him fully custom!
Don't forget to comment, rate, and fave me! I want this to be my most popular moc! Please help this get 60+ likes!
Your Score: 6.5/10 Its a good MOC, but I feel like there's too much going on in it (maybe overgreebling?). I love the gun you made for him, and the custom head, but the amount of greebling makes it tough to see the whole shape of the body. Also, the photos after the lightsaber one seem, well, a bit random. They just draw out the MOC more than necessary.
Ther are some fine techniques used and some nifty ideas, but at the end of a day if I still remember it, I will remember it like this: "a bionicle MOC, not sure what it looked like though." Do something new, or we will all forget you. Make something new, or at least something that has not been done many times. Like "rahi" or whatever the non-humanoid bionicle are called.
It is hard to illustrate the details of a MOC that uses so much black. But you did it quite well in this posting. At first, the details remain obscured, but later in the presentation, you supply ample close up shots of every (every single) inch of the MOC. so really, there are no questions left unanswered. You did let some blurry photos slip in and that is never a good idea. Over all, a good presentation. Attack!
Awesome, Love it! Colour scheme 3/5 Is sometimes all over the place but in some places, it works
Uniqueness 5/5 Haven't seen anything like this (In a good way!) Story 4.5/5. Some plot holes but still is good. Extra I don't really like the random pieces all over the place sometimes. Overall 4/5 EPIC
Very creative moc. One thing though color scheme is very confusing. Creativity 4/5 colors make it hard to tell how the body is built. Great build but torso could be better. Presentation 5/5 complete bio on the page and in detail. Photography 5/5 great work on showing details. Weapons 5/5 very versatile weapon collection love all the weapons dude. Over all score 5/5
Custom 4/5(80%) Design 5/5 color 3/5 Bio 5/5 Back Story 5/5 pose-able:4/5 and Creatity:5/5 Total:31/35 Final Ranking:Imperfect Ulitma
okay the main flaw is there is too many colors,gold,silver,black,green and even white
Nice job Jordan! I love the fact that the lime green is gone, it just works with the color scheme. Only major complaint is the simplicity/lack or rear armor on the back of his lower legs. Maybe some custom pieces, or more armor would REALLY help the look. I'm going to post a new Galvis soon, so be on the look out for it! Nice work! - Kyle
You have definitely make a large improvement since the last version :D Everything looks great, however I do think that his legs don't seem to be in proportion with his body, try and focus less on greebles with him. Anyway other then that, nice work man :D
Ah, this is much better! Although his arms are still supergreebled, his chest isn't so big that it makes him look so top heavy! Perfect! Only complaint is that the torso is slightly too thin, just a tad bit armor around would perfect the look! Otherwise, excellent! :D
Okay, foryou guys who think he is over-greebled, I don't think he is. I personally would prefer to have a filled in moc, than to have a not greebled moc with holes in it :) I do greebles to fill in gaps and holes in a moc and a little detail... Please, don't complain :(
Wow! This guy is great! I really like the custom head and how versatile it is with masks. Another great thing is that he has no lime green. But I still find him difficult to look at due to all of the things that are going on on his body, what with grebes and all.
By the way, you're almost never on Bionicle RPG, and neither are any of the other admins or mods, so could you make someone who's active an admin?
Thank you so much guys! I need to change one pic later, but I haven't had time... Thanks for all the good comments and constructive criticism. That was one of the reasons I did this revamp. I hope to make this my most popular moc. I totally agree Legofreak and Cody :)
Very nice update! I loved how you removed the lime and the spreading of gold. The hair is awesome and kinda reminds me of Predator. He has a very nice ensemble of weapons, and the better photography was also a key part to this MOC. I tip my hat to you sir!
Love the new updates. Nice job on removing the lime and spreading the gold. One thing though, I think you should fill in the back of his legs, he'd be dead with a slice to the back of his shin. Anyways, good work here. Can't wait for more. ;D
