Takua, The Chronicler
My entry for the 2012 Bio-cup. This was a rushed entry because I will have very little time over the next few weeks.
About this creation
Ok, like I said, this is a really quick entry, and I may not make it past the eliminatories round, but this is only my first Bio-cup, there is always next year.

Link to the Bio-cup.

The first thing to come to my mind for the category revamp of an old character was Takua. I for some unknown reason still hold great respect and nostalgia for those McDonald's Tohunga, (did I spell that right?) matoran. At one point in time I had over twenty of them. I used to trade my friend for some of his sets using those little dudes, and we LOVED to shoot those disks across the room and we both became quite good at hitting targets. In respect for those little sets I made this.



The original Takua. I never actually did get to own this guy, I always got Hewkii or Kongu.



My take on the little guy. Here he just stands.
Hi all.



Ta-da. Hey creator?
Yes Takua?
Can I do some fun poses? I'm a little bored just standing.
Not yet, we have to take some close ups.
Ok...



His back. I really could have armored it a little better. But alas, I do not have the time to take more pictures, or fix him for that matter.



Can I do fun poses now?
Not quite, we have to do a few more close ups.
Ok...



Aww, whats wrong?
I am bored, I want to have some fun...
Aww, come on, I just need a few close ups of your arms and then your good. Ok?
Yay!



His disk arm.



Holding a disk. Unfortunately I have NO idea how to get it to launch from his arm like the original so I settled for being able to hold a disk and being able to bend backwards like the original.



His other arm.



Holding a Kau Kau Staff. I read somewhere that he had one, so I made a simple one for him.



Standing while holding both items.
Can I pose now?
Yes, now you can pose.
Yay!



Pose!



Bending back to let fly the disk.



Launch!



*bang*
*bash*
*clang*
*crash*
*meow*
*boom*
*crash, crash, crash*
*ominous explosion*

.........O_O........ Oh dang.....



*Whistle*



I'm just gonna-



-RUN!!!






A little while later...







Takua?
Yes...
Did you do that?
Yes...



Oh please, oh please, oh please forgive me!! I didn't mean for anything to happen!! it was an accident!!

That's ok, I forgive you. My neighbors never really liked their cat anyway. Or their yard... On second thought, maybe we should go over there an apologize... Anyway, it's ok.



Yay!



Bye guys!

Creator's Comments: I could have done much better, but I am still happy with the results. Here's hoping it gets gets me somewhere!

Thanks for viewing!

The MOC looks okay but i don't like the arm, it's not that good IMO, the body is not that good at all and i think it need some work. the legs are okay but the feet are odd and the color is good like that you made it the same as the toy.

I don;t think Takua was ever even available at McDonalds. He was only possible to make with the nui jaga and Jaller.

Quoting Kayla Rhodes Awesome! Takua's one of my favorite Bionicle characters. I never did own Takua either, but I do have Kongu and Mataro from McDonald's. Kongu was the fist Bionicle that I owned.
Thank you. Kongu was my second Bionicle, I always did like the mask, though it looks better in green in my humble opinion.

I like this. I'm all for simple and cool. Very colorful, but not gritty. It doesn't look like a badaxe version of the old set, only as if it grew up a little. 5/10

Quoting Berial . I like how colorful and poseable he is, but your entry is far too simple and not very ambitious. The photography is commendable though. Oh, and the arms dude, they look like serpents. Don't do that. 5/10
Yes, it is simple. I do not like that either. Thank you. Don't like snakes? ;)

Quoting Johann Dakitsch Nice one. I like how you stayed true to the original colors and overall design, yet providing a good range of motion. Could use a little polishment on the flow here and there, and I'm not sure about the grey torso. Anyway, score: 7/10
Thank you, much appreciated. I will work on the flow of my MOCs in the future, thank you for pointing that out.

Quoting Lord Chaz Nice. Very original. Oh, and BTW, in public school, at least here in L.A., we learn how to fight, which may proove useful in college. just sayin. anyway, good job on the moc. I like how you did the arms, and I've always loved that mask.
Thank you. I am not surprised by this, but I am learning to fight as well. My best friend is a black belt and my brother is very skilled in the art of combat. I see that you are trying to put one point up for public school, and it is on the board, but I just prefer homeschooling. And your right, it WILL prove very useful in college. Thank you again, I always liked the mask too.

Quoting Pictured Mind On your x. Very nice, it still has that Matoran feel. I also loved those Matorans btw, I remember only having Matoro and the brown one (was that Hewkii? I don't really know) but I had like 6 of both of them, that makes a total of twelve. <3
Thank you, I was trying to keep as much of the original feel to it. Si, that was Hewkii. I think I ended up getting most, if not all of them eventually, but I don't think I still have them.

Anywho, good luck. Sometimes Bio-Cup judges can be quite brutal with their words... hope they will be more diplomatic and kinder with them this year! Of course, you are the ultimate word-meister! :) :) :)
Hahaha, apparently he just has that look about him. I didn't intend for that, but I'll take it lol. Well, thank you for the warning, I'll be sure to get them with my own tongue ;) (and no, I'm not talking insults lol.)
